Product Review: It’s All Good Cosmetics

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great day and making it a good one!

Today I will be talking about several products from an Etsy store I came across! Lately I have been obsessed with my products being all natural and I believe the perfect place to find homemade/all natural products is from Etsy! The store is called ‘It’s All Good Cosmetics’ and they have a variety of natural products from lip balms to natural deodorants! So let’s get started!

Here we have two homemade lip balms in the flavors mint chocolate and my personal favorite grapefruit! I have never actually seen or had a grapefruit flavor and let me say that it makes a great lip balm flavor!

These lip balms left my lips feeling so hydrated and moisturized! They both contain organic beeswax, Shea butter, organic coconut oil and Vitamin E! Aside from this ingredients the mint chocolate has cocoa powder and jojoba oil and the grapefruit flavor has grapefruit essential oil. There are a variety of flavors to choose from like coffee, vanilla, lavender, lemonade and many more! I have been using these lip balms for a week now and they have left my lips feeling so soft and the amazing smell is a total plus! I especially love that they are long lasting and don’t leave your lips feeling sticky nor too oily, like some other products. The retail price for these lip balms is only $3.00, not bad considering how soft your lips will feel!

Next, we have a soothing stick, which will help to soothe and speed the healing process for any cuts, scrapes, dry patches or bites! I had actually received a paper cut from messing with papers in my backpack and call me crazy, but when I accidentally cut myself I was sort of happy because I was going to be able to test this soothing stick. Lol. Let me say that it indeed did soothe my cut! Not to mention this item is the perfect size to toss in your purse/backpack for emergencies! All the ingredients in this product are organic! It contains coconut oil, beeswax, calendula infused olive oil, neem oil, tea tree, lavender and cypress essential oil! The retail price for this is $4.00.

I am just loving/amazed with this bronzer! Definitely a new favorite of mine! It blends so well! Honestly, I think it blends better than most bronzers I have used before! Not to mention it is all natural! How awesome is that?! It has Shea butter and coconut oil so it will help moisturize your skin. They also have the blush available, I did not try it, but I imagine its just as good! Aside from Shea butter and coconut oil this product also contains beeswax, olive oil, arrowroot powder, zinc oxide (which I’ve heard is so good for your skin), mica powder, cocoa powder and vitamin E! This lovely product can be purchased for $9.95 and I highly recommend for all you bronzer lovers!

I am not a huge fan of applying lotion with my hands only because I don’t like the way it makes my hands feel. Lotion bars are probably the best thing ever created, especially if their all natural like this one!  This lotion bar is a game changer! I now have no excuse to not moisturize my body! I highly recommend! The scent I received is clary sage and it smells so peaceful to me! Did you know clary sage is known as one of the most soothing and relaxing essential oils. This would be perfect after a hot/relaxing shower/bath right before bed! It’s All Good Cosmetics has a variety of scents like lavender, grapefruit, orange peel, peppermint, lemon+peppermint+lavender and of course clary sage, which I highly recommend! This item can be purchased for $5.50, which is so totally worth it in my opinion!

I just love the texture and how this product leaves my under eyes feeling. This eye cream has tons of benefits! It helps tone/life skin, reduce appearance of scars/acne and heals wounds! This item has Shea butter, coconut oil, aloe gel, myrrh, carrot seed essential oils, vitamin E and Frankincense. Did you know Frankincense has the ability to strengthen skin, improve its tone/elasticity, get rid of blemishes, and it has a great defense mechanism against bacteria. It can also be used to get rid of stretch marks, surgery scars, and its great for healing dry/cracked skin. The retail price for this item is $9.50!

I have been using this lip gloss since I received it and i absolutely love it! It gave my lips that shimmer they deserve! It naturally plumps your lips, while moisturizing them. They’re available in 2 scents, which is peppermint, lavender and unscented for those who like unscented lip gloss. This item contains castor oil, beeswax, Shea butter, cocoa powder, jojoba oil, olive oil with calendula flower, mica powder, vitamin E and of course lavender essential oil. This item is perfect for an everyday look and for only $5.00 it’s a total steal!

This deodorant is all natural and contains ingredients like coconut oil, baking soda, arrowroot powder and essential oils. It has a lemon/lime/tea tree scent, which smells so good and clean! There are two sizes available for this product which are 75ml for $10 and their travel size deodorant (15ml) for $4.00! If you’re sensitive to baking soda they offer deodorants without baking soda for those individuals who have sensitive skin. I used this item for a week and it works so well! It lasted all day long and did not leave any white marks on my black shirts, which a lot of other deodorants tend to do! This deodorant lasts around 18-20 hours, which is really impressive for only using all natural products!

Last, but not least this amazing moisturizing serum! This smells too good and left my skin feeling so nice! It has Argan oil, rosechip seed oil, frankincense, lavender, geranium, carrot seed, lemon, rosemary, and essential oils. This serum will moisturize, nourish and rejuvenate your skin. It can also be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, it will help lift and tighten skin, and naturally slows signs of aging. A little goes a long way with this product, I highly recommend using this item after a hot shower/before bed every night. I used it for a week and I noticed that my skin started looking and feeling more nourished and hydrated.

Overall, I highly recommend checking out ‘It’s All Good Cosmetics’ they have a variety of natural products that work so well!

Outfit of The Day: January 19, 2018

Hello and happy Tuesday!

Today I have another outfit of the day or OOTD to show you! Just like last time this one is also going to be a gym version attire.

So to begin I decided to curl my hair for the pictures, but as soon as I get to the gym these curls are sadly going up into a bun.

I am wearing this red pull over. Its thin enough to workout in and it sort of has that distressed look which I like.

I am wearing some black tights from the brand BCG, which if you had read my previous OOTD post you would know its one of my favorite brands because of how affordable it is.

I am also wearing my favorite Nike shoes these have the rose gold/metallicy Nike symbol, which I think are so cute!

I also had my LG wireless headphones, but I did not get a picture of them. I absolutely love listening to music when I workout and I am not a huge fan of headphones with wires hence my wireless headphones. Lol

Lastly I am wearing my Fitbit Alta, which I love. I am obsessed with counting my steps and seeing how many steps I can put in a day!

Well I hope you enjoyed reading my OOTD and I hope you make the rest of this week a great one!
