Just A Few Beauty Products Up For Review

Happy Monday! I was sent a few products to review from a couple of Brands and I'm sharing my thoughts about them with you all today! Warning this post is pic heavy...

Australian Gold Moisture Lock Tan Extender Lotion
The Australian Gold Moisture Lock Tan Extender lotion has a fresh summer like scent, it reminds me of being at the beach or poolside. It's supposed to extend your Summer tan but since its Winter, I can only tell you about the moisture it provides to your skin. It contains Vitamin E, Panthenol and Aloe which provides soft smooth healthy looking skin. I applied this lotion to my full body for a week and noticed that my skin did stay moisturized and the lotion absorbed to my skin really well and its not greasy at all. I believe this would be a great lotion to use during the warmer months. The Australian Gold Moisture Lock Tan Extender Lotion retails for $8.49 - $10.49 and can be purchased at Drugstores and Walmart.
Wet Brush
The Wet Brush is basically a hair brush that can be used to detangle wet hair...hence the name. It can also be used on dry hair as well. I have used it both ways and really haven't seen a major difference, maybe its because my hair texture is thick and coarse. The intelliflex bristles are very soft and does not really pull a lot of hair out when you're brushing through your hair. It's also easy to clean and very lightweight and a brush that the whole family can use. I like the wet brush even though I have neutral thoughts about it, its the perfect size for traveling! The wet brush retails for $10 at and comes in different sizes and colors.

EOS Lip Balm - Blueberry Acai
I'm pretty much sure everyone knows about the eos lip balms but I'm very new to them. I can honestly say that I'm in love with them now after testing out the eos blueberry acai. The eos  lip balm in blueberry acai is 95% organic, 100% natural paraben and petrolatum free. It's packed with antioxidant rich Vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil. It goes on clear and really locks in the moisture. I use it at night and when I wake up in the morning I noticed that my lips are really smooth and soft. The blueberry acai flavor is not so bad either. It retails for $3.29 which is a little expensive but you really get a lot in this little sphere and it does last for some time even when used daily or nightly. I'm eager to try the other flavors as well. The eos lip balms are available at Target, Walgreens, Ulta and other various drugstores.

Coola SPF 20 Face Mineral Sunscreen
The Coola SPF 20 Face Mineral Sunscreen is hypoallergenic, ultra sheer and paraben free. The purpose of this sunscreen is to hydrate and protect your facial skin. I will admit that I'm new to facial sunscreen moisturizers but I did try this particular product for two weeks. My face felt a little oily the cream is a bit thick so you only have to use a little bit. To be honest, I wasn't really happy with this product even though it provides great UVA/UVB protection. The product is just too greasy and leaves a white cast on your face. The only thing I found exciting about this product was the packaging, the pump and its cruelty free. The Coola SPF 20 Face Mineral Sunscreen retails for $36 and is available at
Bodycology Enchanted Forest Exfoliating Sugar Scrub
The Bodycology Enchanted Forest Exfoliating Sugar Scrub is a blend of jasmine, nutmeg and musk scent. The sugar crystals exfoliates the skin while shea butter moisturizes and rehydrates. I'm totally in love with this sugar scrub, my skin is so soft after using this product. I use it twice a week and it has kept my skin hydrated with some of the cold Winter days here in North Carolina. The Bodycology Enchanted Forest Exfoliating Sugar Scrub retails for $5.97 at Walmart which is really a bargain for all you beauty product lovers who love using body scrubs!
