Pangea Organics Facial Scrub Egyptian Geranium With Adzuki Bean and Cranberry

I've got nothing but love for this company, I swear. So this is really great because the granules are fine enough that they don't scratch my skin. The smell is light aromatherapy. Now to the packaging. They are beyond environmentally friendly with the packaging made of paper that you can plant and poof, wildflowers grow. I planted the packaging yesterday in my garden. We'll see what happens.

Sebastian Trilliant

Trilliant is brilliant!
Keeps hair from frizzing out--a BIG deal in Michigan summers--and adds shine and dimension.
There's mica in it!
I love it & recommend it highly.
Just mist a little into your hands & work through your (damp) hair.
If you are a pro-sprayer, you could spritz directly onto your hair, but I am not that advanced.
Light, beachy scent.

Pangea Organics Malagasy Ylang Ylang and Linden Flower Body Wash

This silky body wash left my skin smooth. It's aromatherapy in the shower at its best. The scent is strong and cedar-like. I smelled a bit of black licorice too. Very relaxing.

Pureology-Serious Colour Care, AntiFade Complex (2)

Dandruff Scalp Cure Shampoo:

I've been dealing with some itchy scalp, occassional dandruff for about a year now. And I have medium-dark brown hair that gets very light (which I hate!) in the sun. So I was super excited to try this line from Pureology. While my scalp wasn't helped much, my hair has so far maintained it's color, and that makes me happy! I didn't realize when I began testing this product that the entire line is vegan and organic - now I'm super happy (having just returned to a vegetarian lifestyle). The scent on this product is pleasant - not at all perfumey. The lather is beyond amazing! It's very thick out of the bottle, which tells me that you are wasting very little money on H2O when you buy this product - always good. If I were to change anything, it would be the bottle design. The body is sort of elliptical with a very long neck, and squeezing out product becomes a little difficult when you get mid-way through the contents. But this was easily remedied by removing the cap.

Dandruff Scalp Cure Hair Conditioner:

Just the right amount of conditioning without making hair too soft to style.

Out of 3 stars, this would be a 2. It's a great line, I love the scent and consistency, I just wish it did a better job on the dry & itchy scalp.

Ultra Lengthening Fruit Pigmented Mascara in Black Berry

Click Here

This huge tube of 100% natural mascara in an uncommon color is super flattering. It's so dark that it's almost black but there's that hint of color (almost plum). It thickens, separates and lengthens. I'm usually a waterproof girl because regular mascara tends to disappear and my eyelashes fall after curling them but this non-waterproof mascara stood the test of time, staying on my lashes all day and night. Bravo!
