Part 2 yey! Like I said the other day, today is dedicated to body wash & care products. Let’s go!
The only reasons that made me want to buy this were : the price and the packaging. Hey, the bottle looks nice, doesn’t it? Ok, the presence of tea in the composition was the icing on the cake that made me put it in the basket. Speaking of the composition, this one has no parabens, phthalates, EDTA, silicones and PEG.
I’m using it everyday, because I’m a clean person (surprise!). I don’t how white tea smell like, all I can say is that the body wash smells… acid. I mean, you know, when you smell something and you can say “it’s sugary/salty/[insert adjective here]”. There, it smells acid. Maybe I should go to the nose shop to change mine, but to me, it smells acid (well, yeah, ok Wina, we got it, “acid”).
Anyway, about the moisturizing thing, I’m pretty skeptical. It doesn’t dry my skin, but I wouldn’t say with insurance that it does moisturize my skin. It’s just like usual. Yes, that was very useful.

I wanted that kind of scrub thingy for quite a while now. And there we are! I chose this one because there’s a loofah made scrubing face :
And a soft bamboo rayon made washing face :
I didn’t try it yet, but I can’t wait for having the softest skin in the world.
First thing that made me choose this body lotion : the packaging, of course. It’s very pretty, but also practical. I love pump systems, it makes your life much easier. I didn’t open it yet, but I’m looking forward to smell the grapefruit scent. I have a massage oil with grapefruit essential oil in it and it’s fabulous. Other good thing about this body lotion : it’s parabens, phenoxyethanol, SLS, PEGs, propylene glycol, petroleum products, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, gluten and soy free. And some ingredients are organic, what more could you ask for?
I’ve read lots of positive comments about this deo. I think it’s the one that is the most sold on iHerb, or something like that. And I understand pretty much why it’s so popular! It has a wonderful smell of almond and it’s pretty efficient. Of course, it doesn’t stop the sweating, but it really neutralizes the smell of the armpits. Except when it’s very hot. In that case, I think there’s nothing to do anyway. But there’s a black point. Indeed, there’s an ingredient in the composition, alcloxa. And under this name hides aluminum of allantoin. Aluminum. Pardon my following words but : FUCK THIS SHIT. I’ve been trying to avoid aluminum in deodorant for years now and this is kind of ruining it all. This is the only reason that won’t make me buy it again. Too bad.
I pinched my sister’s deodorant for about 2 monthes because I was waiting for my Soapwella that never arrived eventually. So I decided to buy a new one for her. The packaging is fresh and cute. And about the composition, it seems that there’s no aluminum in it, but there’s a type of silicone. I guess it’s still better than aluminum.
Ha, shaving! My favourite activity (no). As the weather is getting hotter, I thought I should buy a refreshing shave cream. I’ve never tried that kind of experience, I hope I won’t be disappointed and that my legs will feel as cold as a mint ice cream (my favourite by the way).
Yes, I’m a yeti. Hairs everywhere. After years of epilator on my legs, I feel like I can shave them with a razor without being wire-haired. But for the sensitive parts (armpits & bikini), I mainly use hot wax. When I bought this box, I was expecting something very basic : a plastic container full of wax, a spatula and the instructions, that’s all. But when I received it, I was really surprised. Look at this!
I really like that the wax is in a metallic container. I don’t know, it’s like some kind of guarantee of quality. I also appreciate that there are several spatulas and a tiny glass bottle of azulene oil. Classy.
And that’s all for today. Don’t forget the coupon code if you order on iHerb for the first time :
See you later for the last iHerb haul part with the magical balms and the food.
