Good evening all. I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving. I had a great Thanksgiving at home with my kids and hubby. Did a little online shopping this week, not so much as Christmas is coming 🙂
For my nails today I used Cutting Edge Nails with a Color called HOLLY , It is a lovely red Christmas color. In the pictures below I used one coat of my Nail medic Force Field, 2 coats of Holly and a top coat. This polish applies very easy and good coverage with 2 coats. Dry time is not that fast but to too slow, its average. After I painted my nails I used a good amount a pure unrefined Shea Butter. I love this polish I cannot wait to see what Sara comes out with after the first of the year when she starts making new polish again.
The items below are items I bought online to add to my more natural/less toxic beauty routine and my home. I bought all of them on amazon. Except the 2 hair products to the left, my hubby thought I should try them from our local salon, but I returned them today as One smelled way to strong and the other I did not like the health score for the ingredients.
The Acure Organics Repairing Conditioner kind of surprised me, it was a tad runny and I needed a lot to cover my thickness and length.I will see how it goes while using up the bottle. My hair did feel a TINY bit better than it did with the Loma Organics or the Desert Essence lines.
Alba Bontanica Products For Dry Skin body wash has been my favorite for a long time due to the price for the 32 oz, ingredients and availability on amazon. Which I will add I also just received my order of Alba Botanica Maximum Dry skin lotion 32 oz bottle today.
Then we have the Now Foods Shea Butter , the first one I had to have exchanged as it came all crumbly, the new one I got today was nice and smooth like it is supposed to be so I whipped it up with a tiny bit of Argan oil and it makes my hands feel amazing after my mani due to the polish remover and hand washing etc. Now the Shea Butter on its own, I LOVE it. I can tell I am going to be buying a lot of this during the cold weather months.
Bbayganics Alcohol free Hand Sanitizer Refill is a foam hand sanitizer that is safe for all and is without the harsh drying alcohol others leave behind. The ingredients are: Active: Benzalkonium Chloride 0.1% Inactive: Water, Cetrimonium Chloride, Laurtrimonium Chloride, Dihydroxyethyl Cocamine Oxide, Glycereth-17 Cocoate. This is a must have in our home as I hate germs and I have always taught my kids to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer, on amazon I pay 5.99 for the refill bottle which is awesome.
Radha Beauty Products Pure Peppermint oil I chose to order for my wax melts and burners. I love the smell of peppermint and you can also use it for so many things like massages, cold and flue relief, headaches and relieving anxiety 🙂 boy do I need that. Peppermint oil also is a natural disinfectant. I like to make my own room spray with it. I plan on buying more oils in the near future. How do you feel about peppermint oil?
So, that is my little haul of shopping, probably not much compared to most peoples hauls but that is ok lol Please feel free to leave any comments about the products if you have good or bad views on them.
Thanks so much for reading
