Orly Nail Polish - Kiss the Bride

The pale white cream pink shade is a gorgeous neutral. The formula is free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin. The only down side is that the formula is really streaky, even with 2 thin coats. Although, the color is opaque and when you add more coats, the layers get more streaky and take forever to dry.

Too Faced Lava Gloss Glossy Black Eyeliner

The creamy eyeliner goes on smoothly. It is also very smudgeable and blends easily without tugging. It good for a cat eye but it doesn't go easily on the waterline. Overall, a mediocre eyeliner.

Nature's Alchemy - Lavender Aromatherapy Herbal Mineral Salts

Lavender has been lauded for its relaxing aroma, and its deep cleansing and purifying properties. The mineral salts is packed with 100% pure essential oils of lavender and extracts of comfrey leaf, comfrey root, elder and lavender flowers. The mineral salts were very salt, they reminded me of table salt when I pour it into my bath. When I opened the pouch I did notice a scent but after sitting in the water, the scent seemed to disappear. Overall, I didn’t like it as much as I like the ones from Kneipp.

The Body Shop Coconut Soap

The vegetable-based, preservative-free coconut soap is made with organic pure cold pressed virgin coconut, palm  and soy oil. The creamy soap lathers well and left my skin feeling smooth and soft.  The scent is very subtle and I don’t notice it on my skin afterwards. I am not sure why this is called coconut soap as the scent reminds me of cocoa butter instead. I prefer the scent of The Body Shop - Moringa Soap scent instead.
