gnarly whale lip balm

I love a good lip balm and the Gnarly Whale balm is perfection. Super moisturizing and they leave my lips so smooth and hydrated. The flavors are insane I tried Grasshopper and Raspberry and am torn which one I love more.

gnarly whale body spray

Most days I don’t want to deal with heavy perfumes but want something that still smells nice. Body sprays can be nice but so many are over the top floral. I have been using Gnarly Whale’s Body Spray in the Mango scent and its fantastic. Its super light on my skin but leaves the fresh scent of mango for hours!

gnarly whale face and body scrub

I was sent a sample of the lemon scrub and let me tell you its all I can do to not eat it. The scent smells like a lemon drop people! The scrub has very fine ganuales so I can use it on my face or body. I love how fresh and smooth my skin feels after a little TLC with the sugar scrub.

gnarly whale coconut milk soap

This is one of those soaps that smells and looks so lovely I feel like I should be giving it as a gift. The only problem is its so lovely I need to keep it for myself.

I have never used a Coconut Milk soap before but I really love it. I have a Lavender scented bar and it smells divine and lathers well. After washing my skin feels clean and hydrated.

one n only argan mask

I love how thick and creamy this mask is. After washing my hair I add a dollop of the mask and work from the ends up. I leave it on for 3-5 minutes and when I hop out of the shower my hair is easy to comb through and feels and looks soft and silky.

First thing I noticed with the Carol’s Daughter mask is how amazing it smells. Every time I open the tub I am swooning at the gorgeous scent.

This mask it so luxuriously thick and creamy  I just need a small amount to really deep condition my hair. My highlights can tend to go a bit brassy but since using the Tui Color Care Mask I have noticed my color has stayed true and my hair looks and feels much healthier from root to tip.

brazilian tech

If you have curly hair this is the mask for you! With natural curly and color treated hair its so hard to strike the balance between conditioning my curls and not weighing them down. That being said I am so impressed with this deep conditioner. I didn’t check the prices before trying the trio to get an unbiased opinion and frankly I am shocked how low the price is on this one.

I use a quarter size drop and work it through my hair paying close attention to the ends. After the first use I noticed a huge change in my hair. My curls not only looked better but they were soft and manageable. And I could put them in a bun and let them out later and they would still look great. I will be stocking up on this I love how great it makes my hair look and feel I am actually wearing it down, on purpose!
