New Beauty Product Reviews

I always love a good product review. Today's is unsponsored, just four things I've been using recently and my thoughts on them!

1// Tom's Natural Powder Antiperspirant/Deodorant
I honestly never thought I'd be talking about my deodorant here ... not really my style. BUT. I have been doing a little reading up on healthier alternatives to the traditional deodorant that I've been wearing for, well, like 23 years. And hopefully making this change has some sort of positive impact on my health, whether I ever know it or not. I'd heard that many natural deodorants lacked the antiperspirant properties that made them effective. Y'all, I live in the Carolinas, and I chase down two kiddos all day, and I'm not willing to give up dry underarms. It's a necessity. I will say that I have been SUPER happy and pleased with this deodorant/antiperspirant and experienced no wetness after the first day. It was like my body had to get used to it. It's around $6/stick which is about twice what I typically pay, but still worth it. Make sure to buy the antiperspirant and not just the deodorant!

2// L'Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal Day Cream (SPF 30)
I was flipping through a magazine and saw this: 

Key words to me were: 1) bargain, 2) reducing UV spots, 3) evening skin tone, 4) silky finish, 5) brighter/radiant. The magazine says it retails for $20 but I got it MUCH cheaper here on Amazon. I like that it has SPF 30 in it for sun protection. I've been using it daily now for almost two weeks. I don't think that's long enough to notice a difference in skin brightness, but hopefully I will start seeing one soon!

3// Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, Rose
I know this lip treatment has a huge following. And wow, it goes on smoothly. I got it for Christmas from my mother-in-law. I think it is a great little lip gloss, but I personally wouldn't spend $24 on another tube. Don't get me wrong, I love it, and I'd ask for it for a gift again, but I think there are plenty of smoothing lip treatments out there for half the price (or more) that last longer.

4// CHI 44 Iron Guard
I've been using a hair dryer and straightener on my hair some days -- with it being a shorter length, the flat iron helps it to not look so Bobsey-twinish. So that's a lot of heat. I started using this Chi thermal protecting product and spraying it all over my hair in a fine mist to help protect it. Enough time has not passed yet to really tell, but I also feel like it helps give my hair a little body. Healthy hair is a must for me!

I'd love to hear any new products you've tried recently!


  1. Thank you.

  2. I so enjoy these posts! I recently ordered products from both Beauty Counter and Glossier that I'm excited to try!

  3. Love the post! The Chi Iron Guard is a must-have. Totally helps keep damage at bay. Also- Cover Girl's "Oh Sugar!" in "Candy" is a fantastic dupe for the Fresh Sugar in Rose!

  4. Thanks for sharing! I'll have to check a few of those products out...especially that day cream!

  5. I'm in the process of overhauling my skin/hair care and makeup products to be cruelty free. It's an easy thing to find - both drugstore and high end products. I was pleasantly surprised to learn how many brands were not testing on animals (and a little saddened to see how many still are). But I thought this was a good way to kinda do what I can - my next "responsible product makeover" will be in cleaning products and I will most definitely be referring to your helpful Grove reviews!

  6. I've had my eye on that deodorant.. so I really appreciate the review! XO

  7. I just changed to Toms too! Works so well!

  8. Check out Piperwai deodorant. It was on shark tank a few years back, its an organic product that uses charcoal in place of aluminum. It's just as hot in Georgia as it is in Carolina, so I know it works :) However I LOVE the scent of Toms!!
