I'm a huge fan of good bath and body products, so I was incredibly excited that Iwona at Best Bath Store was kind enough to send me goodies to review on Lipgloss and Spandex!
Best Bath Store makes all of their 100% natural, cruelty-free products right here in US. Each item is hand packaged, labeled and sealed in recyclable packaging, and the company is entirely powered by wind energy. That's pretty cool!
$3.95 for 0.15 oz (standard lip balm sized tube)
I tested out both the Lemon-Lime Lip Balm and the Vanilla and Coffee (vegan) Lip Balm. Both balms are quite fragrant, but not in an unpleasant way. They have a soft texture, but the do feel a little slick on my lips. The Vanilla and Coffee lip balm feels the slightest bit gritty during application, but feel completely smooth on the lips. These keep my lips moisturized for a couple of hours. I like the translucent tube a lot!
Ingredients-Lemon lime: Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Almond Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, Lime Essential Oil, Vitamin E
Ingredients-Vanilla and Coffee (vegan): Jojoba oil, Cocoa Butter, Candelilla Wax, Shea Butter, Coffee Essential Oil, Vanilla Essential Oil, Vitamin E
$4.95 for 3.5 oz
The Acne Facial Bar is supposed to "restore and revitalize your skin to its natural balance." It has a definite herbal smell to it, but I didn't find it unpleasant. It lathers nicely. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to help my skin at all. My face went to its typical acne-plagued state. However, the quality of the soap is good, and I've been using it on my bod instead. While this particular soap didn't work on my face, I would LOVE to buy some of the other body soaps. They come in a sheer mesh bag with a tag, which looks nice enough to give as a gift!
Ingredients: Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Hazelnut Oil, Castor Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Organic Manuka Honey, Seaweed Powder, White Willow Bark Extract, Australian Olive Green Clay, Vitamin E, Essential Oil Blend
SWEETHEART BATH BOMB
$5.95 for 9 oz.
Can we say CUTEST BATH BOMB EVER?! The Sweetheart Bath Bomb has Neroli, Jasmine, and Ylang Ylang essential oils to help you relax. This roughly tennis ball sized bath bomb is incredibly dense, and creates a powerful fizzing jet in the tub. It doesn't have any glitter or color or other surprises, but it smells great (kind of like Earl Gray tea). This bath bomb will leave a slight residue on your skin, which some bathers may love and some may find too oily. It comes nicely packaged, shrink-wrapped in a plastic box.
Ingredients: Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Red Beet Juice Powder, Essential Oil Blend
Overall, I really enjoyed the products that I received from Best Bath Store, and I look forward to trying some of their other products.
