This is the last of my summer series posts brought to you by Puritan’s Pride and it’s a good one! I had so much fun participating in this series with Lynda, Brie and Deborah and I hope you have enjoyed the chance to win these awesome products!
Last month’s winner, Tammy, had this to say about her skincare package: “Just wanted to let u know I love the products. I used the manuka honey mask yesterday. It was amazing.”
Maybe this month’s winner will be YOU!
This final post features a host of personal care items that will put you in vacation mode–everything from sunless tanning to coconut-scented lotion and more!
Let’s start with the the yummy-smelling things. The scent of coconut always sends me back to Hawaii, so the Desert Essence coconut hair lotion and coconut body lotion on top of the coconut shampoo and conditioner from my very first post in this series definitely put me in the aloha spirit! The body lotion actually smells more like piña colada, so even better.
This month’s giveaway also includes Moroccan Argan Oil Body Wash and Body Lotion which have a more earthy smell to them. I love Moroccan Argan Oil on my hair and these products worked well on my skin. I do prefer the smell of coconut, though.
Sunless tanner is great for darkening up without exposing yourself to harmful UV rays and I love that this Alba brand one has better ingredients than most other tanning lotions. One application was all I needed to get a nice-looking tan and it smelled better than other brands I remember using. The only thing I didn’t like was how greasy I felt for awhile afterwards–I was afraid to touch anything even after the 15 minutes of drying time was up because I stayed shiny for awhile after. The color was definitely more saturated on rougher areas of skin, so it’s important to exfoliate well before using.
If you are spending time in the sun, make sure to put your sunscreen! I’m always on the lookout for new safer sunscreens that rub in without leaving a trace, as most mineral sunscreens leave a lot of white behind. I love this new Babyganics formula, which is much improved over the kind I tried a few years ago. It rubs in easily with nothing left behind! I was also impressed with how well the Alba sunscreen rubbed in, but you might have noticed that I love pretty much everything Alba.
As far as the shea butter, I realized when I opened it that I have never used straight up shea butter before and was surprised to find it so lumpy. I know it has super moisturizing power, but am not a fan of its natural lumpy texture. I’ve read you can heat it and make it into whipped shea butter, so I might give that a try. I did like the shea butter lip rescue, though!
