♥ Natural & Gifted Goodies

I actually haven't written an empties post before- I have loads of them to share, but the childish stubborn part of me that hates everything mainstream refused to post a "empties post"- just because everyone else are doing it. But I gave in now lol..

Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser- This is the most natural and best cleanser I've ever come across. The first ingredients after water are Glycerin then Olive Oil which are followed by other goodies such as: Orange Oil, Oat Flour, Aloe Vera Juice and Rosemary Oil and many more. Since there's Olive Oil in this, it cleans all of your make up off in one go! My friend says that her face was so moisturised after using this that she didn't need to use a face cream after. I however, feel like I do whenever my skins been in contact with water.

Lavera Basic Sensitivity Hand Cream- I absolutely love this! I've mentioned it in my blog countless times and repurchased quite a few times as well. The top ingredients are Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil, but yet the consistency is super light! That doesn't stop it from being super moisturising and nourishing though and I would say it feels as nourishing as an oil- but as light as a "none oil" cream, does that even make sense?

Curls Curl Souffle Medium Curl Cream- This is a very light hair moisturiser and I would definitely like to say it does the job. The ingredients are amazing with the first ones being: Aloe Vera Juice, Sunflower Oil and Glycerin. Use this when your hair starts to get dry in between washes. I wouldn't say use it before styling since it does dampen your hair quite a lot.

Rituals Magic Touch Organic Cherry & Rice Milk (Ultra rich whipped body cream)- This smells aa- mazing! It does the job but I wouldn't recommend it to someone with superdry skins since there is not a lot of oils or butters in here- more like Glycerin and silicones.. I used this as a "treat" cream, you know on that day when you have like a little home spa lol :)

Rituals Wai Wang Organic White Lotus & Yi Yi Ren Exfoliating Body Scrub- Another Rituals product that smells amazing! I love that the scrubbing beads are fairly big which gives a better scrubbing effect. It's pretty moisturising and thick and I've noticed that it doesn't wash off when you shower until you psychically "take it off" with your hands.

Calvin Klein Euphoria Shower Gel- I probably used this way past the expiry date seeing as this was a gift a few years back. This is just a normal shower gel except for the obvious- it smells like the CK perfume Euphoria. I love the smell but I'm guessing it contains Sulfates and other stuff so I didn't use it daily. This was also a sort of "treat shower gel" that I only used once in a while.

Have you tried any of these?


! The three products to the far left are natural without any silicones, mineral oils, parabens or sulfates. The ones to the right are not. I do think the naturals ones are best and they are all favourites of mine- which just goes to show- natural is best :) :)
