Lush Liquid Lipstick Review: Perspective

When I went to Mall of America’s Lush store, I decided to check out their makeup line. Since Lush prices are high, I only walked out with 1 thing from their makeup line, although I would have liked to try some more as well. Once I decided that I was going to get a liquid lipstick, I swatched most of the shades in store. I decided on the shade Perspective, which is a dusky rose. I find it to be a gorgeous shade!

IMG_20140723_183101388

What Lush says about Perspective, “This natural, dusky rose lipstick is perfect for everyday use and looks beautiful on a variety of skin tones. The rose wax and jojoba oil base ensure the lipstick goes on smooth and keeps lips hydrated all day long. We’ve heard fans calling this their all-in-one, as this creamy lipstick can also be used as a blush for a rosy glow. Wear Perspective when you need a new way of regarding a problem or situation; now you can see clearly.” More information found here. 

Lush Cosmetics is all about making fresh products with fresh ingredients. That is something that I love about the company. Since their products are fresh, they leave a lot of preservatives out of it. With that being said, their products expire faster. Although, they do still have to add some otherwise it would need to be put into a refrigerator. This product is vegan. I also love that they stand against animal testing! That is a big pro for the animal lover in me.

Ingredients (Information also found in link above)

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Candelilla Wax (Euphorbia cerifera), Rose Wax (Rosa damascena), Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Iron Oxides, D&C Red No. 27 Aluminium Lake, Titanium Dioxide

Packaging 

The packaging is a lot different than any other products like this that I have tried. Although, I honestly haven’t tried that many liquid lipsticks. I think that the packaging is easy to use. The applicator is a dofa applicator so application is pretty easy. There is no chance of spilling with how they produced the package as well.

Swatches & on the Lips

I really fell in love with this shade when I swatched it in store because it is a natural wearable rosey pink. I am not big on bold lips so I think this shade is perfect for me.

IMG_20140723_183201861

Here are some pictures of me wearing the shade. Also, in case you’re wondering what is on my eyes, it is the one and only Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay. Love that palette!

IMG_20140723_183826243

 

Here is another picture with the lipstick and I am also sporting my new sunglasses!

IMG_20140726_121023

Formula

The formula is really pigmented and creamy. The consistency is hard to describe because it feels a little grainy or gritty when rubbing the lips together right after application. I actually think that it feels nice. It is very hard to describe. I recommend going into a Lush and trying it out for yourself. It does have an average wear time, so nothing too special. Of course, it does need to be reapplied after eating. I feel like when lipsticks last all day, they most likely have nasty ingredients in them. How else would they last that long?

Pros

  • Non-sticky
  • Fragrance free
  • Pigmented
  • Handmade
  • Natural shade
  • Creamy
  • Easy to apply

Cons

  • Price
  • May not be visible on all lip shades
  • Average wear time

Overall, I think that it was fun to try a Lush liquid lipstick. It is good to think that it is more natural than a lot of other lip products out on the market. Just think about it…I wonder how much lipstick or lip product a person ingests throughout their lifetime? Might as well be more natural…right?!? I do think that I would repurchase it again once I use it up. Although, I think it might take me awhile because I don’t wear it everyday. I have a year before it expires. *Goes and applies it to lips*

Day 25: Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint Review

IMG_1390

When I was browsing through the more natural section at Target, I came across a brand named Pacifica. I saw they had a variety of beauty products, but the color quench lip tints were catching my eye. I didn’t pick one up right away, but after a few different times at Target, I decided to take the leap. Since then, I have bought the whole line of the lip tints. Ulta got me there with the, buy 1 get 1 50% off! I also sent one in my transatlantic box swap, and I have one included in my giveaway that is going on right now! If you haven’t entered my giveaway yet, make sure to do that! It ends the last day of this month! 

Pacifica is a beauty brand that offers many products such as: makeup, skincare, nail polish, perfume, and even candles. It was started by a lady named Brook Harvey Taylor.  You can find more information on the brand here.

I really like Pacifica’s morals! They strive on being natural! Their products are 100% vegan, cruelty free, and paraben free. That is hard to come by in most beauty brands.  I mean even Lush Cosmetics uses parabens in their products! They also work as a company to help the environment. On the back of each lip tint box it says that a “portion of proceeds support clean water.” These products were also made in the USA.

What Pacifica says about their lip tints,Give your lips the love they deserve! All Natural Color Quench lip tints packs major lip moisture, nourishing naturals and gorgeous, sheer lip color into one perfectly portable, 100% recyclable tube. Essential fatty acids from rich and amazing avocado and coconut oils leave lips luscious and healthy. Natural flavor and 5 perfect shades produce the prettiest, most kissable mouth ever. 100% vegan and gluten free. Your lips will love you back!” More information found here

Packaging 

I think that Pacifica’s packaging is gorgeous! I just love the details that they put into the outer-boxes and the tubes themselves. The lip tints come in an array of colors and the shades match the outer packaging as well.

Each tube of lip tint contains 0.15 oz or 4.25 G.

IMG_1389

IMG_20140424_161510010_HDR

 Ingredients (as found on their website)

cocos nucifera (coconut) oil [emollient/ moisturizer], glycine soja (soy) wax [emollient/ mositurizer], euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax [emollient/ mositurizer], theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter [emollient/ mositurizer], persea gratissima (avocado) oil [emollient/ mositurizer], natural flavor [flavor], vitamin E [emollient/ mositurizer], rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract [beneficial].  May contain [colorants]: mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides.  100% vegan. Gluten-free.

Shades/Colors (Pacifica’s description in italics and from their website)

This line has 5 different shades/scents.

IMG_20140424_161308248

1) Coconut Nectar Shimmery Golden Raisin

This is probably my least favorite of the 5, only because I’m not the biggest fan of coconut. It is a nice neutral shade and it is very creamy. The shade is shimmery and very wearable. When applying it to the lips, it feels a little rough due to the shimmery particles, but once applied, it feels amazingly smooth on the lips.

2) Vanilla hibiscus Pale Pink with a Touch of Pearl

This light pink shade is perfect for everyday use. It is the most sheerest of the 5. I really do like the scent. It smells like fresh vanilla with a hint of hibiscus. The formula is also very creamy and feels amazing on the lips.

3) Guava Berry Quintessential Berry Stain 

This is actually my first lip tint that I got and it remains to be my favorite as well. I just love the berry tint that is gives my lips. The formula is amazing! It applies to the lips like butter. The scent is also amazing! This lip tint was the reason that I wanted to try the others out. This is also the color that I sent in my box swap and the color that will be available in my giveaway.

4) Sugared Fig Rich Plummy Fig with a Hint of Sexy Sparkle

I really like this shade as well. The scent is nice and sweet. The formula is very creamy. It applies to the lips very smoothly. The shade is a little darker than the others, but still very wearable.

5) Blood Orange Sweet Coral with a Pop of Pink 

This is my second favorite of the 5, just because I love the scent so much. I also love the color it gives my lips. The formula is once again amazing.

 Are you surprised that I have another Mirya picture showing up in a makeup post? Lol!  I always feel so weird taking pictures of myself, so I always add Mirya in. Make sure to check out her post from yesterday to see some updated pictures of her! I may be biased, but she is dang cute!

Overall, these lip tints will be a staple in my collection! I am very very very intrigued to try more Pacifica products!  I always have guava berry in my purse.  I’m not big on bold lips and I don’t tend to wear lipstick that often. With that being said, I feel like these colors are perfect for the type of lip look that I want from day to day. They’re more of a natural lip look, which is something that I really like about this line. They’re easy to grab and apply whenever in a hurry! Some of the shades are hard to find at my Target, but usually they can be found at any Ulta. They’re super moisturizing and make the lips feel amazing. The longevity is amazing as well. I will recommend this product to anyone over and over.

Comment and let me know if you have tried these products or if you have tried any other Pacifica products! Hope you enjoyed this post! I love hearing from you!

Day 22: Lush Charity Pot Lotion Review

I have gone through a few tubs of this lotion from Lush. It was actually one of my first Lush items that I ever bought from them. I have now become a big Lush fan and I am very happy that a classmate of mine told me about this amazing company. I love their beliefs and values and how they stand strong against animal testing. This lotion is called, “Charity Pot.” By buying a Charity Pot lotion, Lush actually donates 100% of its proceeds to charity (excluding taxes). That is pretty amazing for a company to do because usually it is 25% or less that goes to charity. There are a few different charities that you can pick from when buying your lotion. I think that this lotion is such a nice cause and that was the biggest reason that I decided to try this lotion over the others.

DSC00645  IMG_1276

According to Lush, “Since 2007, we’ve donated more than $4,750,000 to over 400 GRASSROOTS CHARITIES in 35 countries.” Information found here

I think that is amazing!

What Lush says about its Charity Pot lotion,Inside every black pot of Charity Pot is a whole lot more than a creamy body lotion to hydrate parched, dry skin. Of course, it’s filled with the finest ingredients, including Fair Trade organic cocoa butter, and made by hand with love. Not to mention the gorgeous fresh, ylang ylang floral fragrance. What makes it so special? Every penny (yes, every single penny) that you pay for a pot, excluding the tax, goes to fund and support grassroots charities all around the world. You end up with softer, floral-scented skin AND you’re doing a world of good with every pot purchased.”  Information found here

Want more information?!? Check out this video from Lush!

Kudos to Lush for donating all the proceeds to charity!!!

Lush is known for its natural ingredients that they put into their products. Lush’s tagline is fresh handmade cosmetics, which it even states on their bag. With that being said, I felt like it was very important to check out the ingredients and talk a little bit about them.

IMG_1273

Ingredients as shown on Lush’s website

Water (Aqua) , Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis) , Fair Trade Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao) , Glycerine , Stearic Acid , Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata) , Geranium Oil (Pelargonium crispum) , Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta) , Triethanolamine , Cetearyl Alcohol , *Geraniol, *Citronellol , *Limonene , *Linalool , Fragrance ,Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides) ,Methylparaben , Propylparaben

As you can see there is a lot of natural ingredients with the featured ingredient being Ylang Ylang oil on their website. It also has fair trade cocoa butter. But, there is also parabens included. I’m surprised that these are included in this lotion since Lush strives for being all natural. I honestly don’t know that much about parabens, but with more and more things going paraben free I am honestly surprised that Lush hasn’t gone that way yet. Hopefully they will soon!

DSC00647

DSC00648

All Lush products come with this yellow sticker which states when the product was made, who made the product, and the expiration date.

MY THOUGHTS

Packaging

I’m not the biggest fan of lotion in tubs because I like easy access with using a pump. I’ll be honest sometimes I choose my Indigo Wild Almond lotion over this especially if I’m in a hurry because that lotion comes with a pump. Although, Lush states that its packaging is not virgin and made from 100% recycled plastic. I really think that is awesome of Lush, so all in all, I will still buy this over and over pump or no pump.

DSC00646

Sizes & Prices

The price is hefty, but I don’t mind because I love the cause! This lotion comes in 2 different sizes. The small tub is $5.95 for 1.7 oz and the large tub is $22.95 for 7.9 oz. Remember that this lotion is made fresh so yes it will be more expensive than lets say a generic lotion bought at a Target or Wal-Mart.

 Color

The color of this lotion is light yellow.

DSC00651

Scent

The scent isn’t the best in my opinion. It does smell super strong in the tub. Some people I know have been turned away from this lotion because of that. But, honestly it smells differently when applied to the skin. It isn’t as strong and it is nice and soft instead. It is a mixture between floral and cocoa.  It reminds me of freshly cut flowers.

Texture

The texture is semi thick. It isn’t too liquidy and isn’t thick like a body butter. I feel like this lotion has a nice texture and it blends into the skin very easily. The lotion isn’t greasy at all.

Moisture

This is what makes this lotion amazing! I have super dry skin especially during the winter months. My legs become super dry and itchy if I don’t apply lotion. Using this lotion keeps my skin moisturized and feeling so much better. Even if the scent isn’t my favorite, this is the selling point for me. Like I said above, the scent doesn’t linger and once applied to the skin it is nice and soft.

Overall thoughts!

I really like this lotion if you haven’t realized that by now. Even though I’m not the fondest of the scent, I still do love this lotion. When I went to Lush at Mall of America they had the little Charity Pots sitting up at the register. Of course I decided to throw one in with my other purchases! I will continue to buy this lotion, but I really do hope that they make it paraben free!

Day 3: Miranda’s Tangerine Lip Balm Review

So with it being Winter/almost Spring out (or supposed to be Spring out?), my lips get dry, especially during working at a hospital. I would go insane without a trusty lip balm in my pocket at work or even at home! I always wear a lip balm at night. Carmex being one of them. Have you ever looked at the ingredient list on your lip balms? For example the ingredient list for a lip balm from the brand ChapStick : arachidyl propionate, camphor, carnauba wax, cetyl alcohol, D&C red no. 6 barium lake, FD&C yellow no. 5 aluminum lake, fragrance, isopropyl lanolate, isopropyl myristate, lanolin, light mineral oil, methylparaben, octyldodecanol, oleyl alcohol, paraffin, phenyl trimethicone, propylparaben, titanium dioxide, white wax. Information and photo found here under the see the label section. Those are just the inactive ingredients!

original_5(1)

How about Burt Bee’s?

That has to be good right because it’s considered a natural company.

Here is the ingredient list:

Beeswax, cera alba (beeswax, cire d’abeille), cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, lanolin, tocopherolrosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil (huile de colza), limonene. Information and photo found here.

Beeswax Lip Balm

Much better, but it could get better right??

Lanolin is a wax taken from sheep’s wool and is used in creams, waxes, or oils. Information on Lanolin found here. Sounds kind of gross doesn’t it?

I don’t even want to know what is in Carmex!!!

So here comes the point of this post! I’ve known Miranda since Kindergarten! That is 20 years ago! Miranda started an Etsy shop by making her own homemade lip balm. I got fed up with all the nasty ingredients in products, I decided that I needed to try them out! She has quite a few high raves on her Esty site. She calls her shop Miranda’s Tangerine. You can find her Etsy website here. This review is going to be an honest and I’m not just going to give her a good review because I’ve known her since Kindergarten.

What Miranda says about her lip balms, “These specially hand brewed NATURAL balms penetrate the sensitive skin on your lips to hydrate and soothe. Smooth out cracked and scaly skin. After a few days of using exclusively, your lips will look and feel soft without feeling the need to use over and over again. It has a silky smooth texture, and penetrates your lips to keep them soft and allows them to STAY soft. No waxy fillers that just sit on top of your skin, just natural ingredients.”

A LITTLE BREAKDOWN INTO MY EXPERIENCE

Ordering

It was super easy to order. I just signed up for Esty and shopped in her shop, checked out like normal, and got a confirmation email.

Shipping

Came super fast, especially the second time I ordered. My lip balms came in a super safe bubble envelope.

Pricing

I think that the price is very reasonable for each tube only being $2. Remember this lip balm is handmade. She sometimes has promos going on as well!

Types

  • Tangerine
  • Lime
  • Eucalyptus
  • Peppermint
  • Advocacy Lip Balm (comes in 4 scents: lime, tangerine eucalyptus, mint and plain!)

Packaging

Packaging is super cute and simple!

A sweet treat

Comes with a safety seal which is always a good thing to have.

THE EXTRA TOUCH

It was nice of Miranda to add in her business card. In case I need to order more, I will have her website. 🙂

Ingredients
Here is where the fun part comes in! The ingredients! Remember all the nasty ingredients from the ones listed above?!?

IMG_1502

Eucalyptus & Lime Ingredients

IMG_1501

Peppermint & Tangerine

Refer to below for my thoughts on the ingredients.

Advocacy Lip Balm Information 

The cause: “Female circumcision is internationally considered a violent mutilation and violation of human rights yet the United States still forcibly cuts the foreskins off of baby boys every day without medical indication. Routine infant circumcision presents a vast list of complications during infancy and adulthood, including difficulty breastfeeding, hemorrhaging, shock, adhesion, loss of sensitivity, erectile dysfunction, even death. The list goes on. We simply believe that male, female and intersex alike have the right to a whole and natural body. His body, his choice. ” From Miranda’s Tangerine’s site here.

Some links provided on her site to learn more:

“Each tube is $2.00. Miranda’s Tangerine will donate $2.00 for every lip balm sold to Intact Minnesota. These funds are used for expo registration fees and informational materials to hand to Minnesota residents during expos and fairs through out the area.”

IMG_1503

I got mine in Peppermint.

Facebook Page
Miranda’s Tangerine also has a Facebook page. You can find it here.

My Thoughts
I love love that there are ingredients that I don’t have to be a scientist to know what they are!! Or use Google to search information about a certain ingredient. She also uses organic products which is also a plus such as: beeswax and virgin coconut oil. I love that the scent comes from essential oils and not weird chemical scents. It’s all natural and it feels natural unlike Carmex. The first time I opened one of these and applied it on my lips, I was in lime heaven! They all smell amazing and very refreshing! I love how they felt when applying them to my lips. They’re very smooth and very moisturizing! My lips felt amazing! They did not feel sticky at all after application. I do wish that the balmy feel of it lasted longer, but my lips did feel smooth after it wore off. That just means I can enjoy applying this lovely natural lip balm again and go into lime heaven! My lips were super dry before trying these out and these helped quite a bit, especially during the winter months. This paired with my Lush lip scrub! When I would apply these lip balms during the night, my lips would feel super soft when I woke up. I definitely have one of these by my bed, my pocket at work, and one in my purse. I would have to say my favorite is lime, and tangerine comes in close second. Eucalyptus smells good as well, but it isn’t my favorite either so usually it is the last one I grab for. Peppermint is lovely as well, reminds me of those red/white swirl peppermint candies. I sent one of these along with on my US to UK box swap.

Pros

  • Natural
  • Hand-crafted
  • Moisturizing
  • Smooth feeling on the lips

Cons

  • Longevity
  • No SPF
  • The seam going down the tube lifts up a tiny bit and collects fuzz, dust, etc

Overall, I am very impressed with this natural lip balm. I like what it stands for! Simple & Natural just like the business card says! Comment and let me know if you have tried these lip balms out. What do you think of the ingredients? What is your normal lip balm that you use? Comment and let me know!

GIVEAWAY

My 6 month Blogiversary is coming up! So I will be doing a giveaway! These little lovelies will be included in that giveaway! Make sure to check back during this whole month for 30 days of The Beauty Deputy in celebration!!

Brand Review: Indigo Wild

Indigo Wild is a company that makes numerous products: soaps, laundry soap, hand soap, lotions, candles and many more. The main thing about this company that I really like is that they use natural ingredients that I don’t need to be a scientist to pronounce or understand.

Their slogan is, “Any more natural and you’d be naked.” 

They’re also a cruelty free company which is always a plus for me!

Indigo Wild takes pride in that fact that their ingredients are natural and easily pronounced. If you look on the ingredient list on the products it says, “What’s inside? All-natural ingredients you can pronounce.”

Just for curiosity go find a regular body lotion or soap and look at the ingredient list. Do you know what most of the ingredients are? Does the list go on and on?

So did you freak out? Are you ready to try something natural?

One of the most popular items that Indigo Wild sells is the Zum Bar which is their version of the soap bar. One of the key ingredients listed is goat’s milk. I know what you’re thinking because I know when I was first introduced to this brand by my amazing cousin Amber I thought, “eeew goat’s milk.” But, hey would you rather slather your body with soap made with goat’s milk and essential oils or one of those unnatural soaps/body washes full of sulfates, detergents, phthalates, and parabens?

This is what Indigo Wild says about why they use goat’s milk: http://www.indigowild.com/GoatsMilkSoap/

“Goat’s milk offers an alphabet soup of vitamins. With its restorative vitamins, minerals and proteins, goat’s milk soap simply maintains the balance. And no worries for people who have allergies to usual dairy products or sensitive skin.”


Zum bar scents include: almond, tangerine-orange, anise-lavender, cinnamon, citrus-mint, clove-mint, coffee-almond, confetti, dragon’s blood, eucalyptus, frankincense-lavender, frankincense-patchouli, geranium, grapefruit, lavender, lavender, lemon & patchouli, lavender- mint, lavender-rosemary, lemongrass, lime-basil, mint, oatmeal-lavender, patchouli, patchouli-mint, patchouli-orange, rosemary, rosemary-mint, sandalwood-citrus, sea salt, tangerine-orange, and tea-tree citrus. There many be other scents but these are the ones listed in the 2013 catalog.

These products can be bought off of http://www.indigowild.com/ and are also found in a lot of grocery stores. Go to their website and click on the store locator button to see where these products are found near you. You can also go to their website and request a catalog.

 So now that you have received a overview of the company here are some of the products that I ordered online and also bought at a grocery store.

Item #1 Zum bar soap 

3 oz. $5.75

 

Scent #1 Almond

“Please you body’s sugar cravings with this bar’s candy-like sweetness and nutty undertones. Though tempting to eat, we recommend you share the wealth with your skin. The ultimate confection to help you complexion.” (Quote from the Indigo Wild catalog) http://www.indigowild.com/category/natural-soap/almond-zum-bar/

  • Smells amazing
  • Very moisturizing
  • Does have the lather action that most people love without all those icky sulfates
  • Has a cool design
  • I do wish that it lasted longer but I did have it sitting in my shower so I probably wasted a lot of product, but if I got a soap dish container that would help. I will have to invest in one.

Scent #2: Mint (I used this before I took a picture…oops) 

“Pure. Simple. Spearmint. Does your body what chewing gum does for your mouth…makes you extra kissable. Starts out soft, but wait for it..has a tingly finish.” (Quote from the Indigo Wild catalog) http://www.indigowild.com/category/natural-soap/mint-zum-bar/

  • Smells true to spearmint
  • Does have a cool tingly feeling on skin
  • very moisturizing
  • Once again has a cool design.

Item #2 Zum Face: gentle facial cleanser

4 fl. oz $10.00

Zum Face Cleanser: Saponified oils of certified organic coconut, certified organic olive, castor, and certified organic jojoba, pure essential oils, tocopherol (vitamin e), sodium borate and vegetable glycerin.” http://www.indigowild.com/category/facial-products/lemon-geranium-zum-face-cleanser/

 Pros

  • has a good lather so makes the face feel clean without harsh ingredients
  • Smells true to lemon and geranium which I think smells really good
  • Has a pump for easy assess 
  • Only need a little amount
  • Have had less pimples since using product

Cons

  • Price
  • Size (4fl. oz isn’t very much for a facial cleanser but since you use only a little bit it lasts a long time)

Item #3 Zum Rub: Almond 

2.5 oz $9.50

Rub your skin with the deepest, soothing immersion humanly possible. Reaching these super subsurface depths requires intense concentrations of certified organic sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, certified organic shea butter, goats milk, pure essential oils and vitamin E.” 

  • I must have a thing for the almond scent because I got this product in almond which I have to say smells amazing!
  • The uses listed on the packaging
    • chapped skin
    • cracked heels
    • cuticles
    • lips
    • healing scars
    • tattoos
    • poison ivy
    • sunburns
    • make-up removal
    • bikini wax
    • frizzies
  • The main use that I have used it for is: make-up removal. It works amazing! It gets off my mascara, eye shadow, eyeliner, and also makes my eyelashes super soft. The first time I tried it for makeup removal I didn’t think it worked very well. But, if you take your finger and kinda make a few indents in the product it breaks up the top layer and it works much better.

Item #4 Zum Clean: Aromatherapy laundry soap 

64 fl. oz $21.00

 

 Scents: eucalyptus citrus, frankincense & myrrh, lavender, patchouli, and sweet orange. 

Tired of the chemical detergent spin cycle? Clean up the way you clean your skivvies with a handmade laundry soap. We’re talking a nudist colony of coconut oil soap for cleaning and 100% pure essential oils for an all-natural scent. Plus baking soda to remove stains and smells. You won’t find these dirty words: detergents, optical brighteners, chlorine, parabens, phosphates, petrochemicals or sulfates. It’s low-sudsing, super concentrated and great for high efficiency machines. Washes 32 loads in top-loading washing machines and 64 loads in high-efficiency machines.”

  • I ordered 2 scents: patchouli and lavender. I have only opened my Patchouli one so far and have done numerous loads of laundry.
  • Love the scent: smells very earthy.
  • The scent does transfer to your clothes after washing/drying and does linger on clothing. I was on a trip to South Dakata and brought my pillow with. My mom was wondering why my pillow smelled so good. Well it was because I washed it in Patchouli laundry soap.
  • I no longer have to use dryer sheets
  • Clothes have no static
  • My only complaint about this is the cap: its very hard to see the lines to see where you measure the amount of soap needed.

  • Very moisturizing
  • They smell amazing and are true to scent
  • Good price for a lip balm

 I ordered a few more products besides the 5 items I shared but I haven’t been able to use them well enough to give my opinion on them. 

Indigo Wild also has these products on their website that can only be bought online. Its called Zum Lab. These are products that can be tried out and then after indigo Wild receives feedback on these items from customers they will decide if it will get “a real Zum label.” Products include: under eye butter, shaving soap (I did try the shaving soap which I did not like because it was too hard to see what was shaven and what wasn’t ), facial mist, shampoo bar, bug rub, and many more. 

 Overall, I really do like the brand Indigo Wild and I will definitely be buying more products from them. I just wish that they were sold at more locations. I live in a smaller town so I have to usually order online and shipping isn’t the cheapest. I am not affiliated with Indigo Wild in any way. These are my own personal opinion of these products. I also would like to take a minute to say please be respectively and not post any negative remarks on my blog. Thank you for reading this and I hope that this blog entry made you want to go out and try Indigo Wild.
