I was recently contacted by blog reader (and fellow Old-Navy lover) Stacey. She is a consultant for Perfectly Posh products and she wanted to know if I was interested in trying their products, which are all made of natural ingredients and are paraben-free.
I love luxurious bath & body products – so I agreed to try a selection of products that appealed to me: no facial products since I’m on acne treatment – and no bath bombs/bubble baths/body scrubs – I’m more of a shower gel/lotion/body butter person! As always – when I review a free item, I consider it as if I paid
the retail price…and evaluate it objectively.
Continue reading to see what I thought of the products and for the chance to win a $50 Perfectly Posh gift certificate (open to US residents only, sorry!).
These are 3 versions of the same product, each with a different fragrance. This cream is full of moisturizing oils (including Coconut, Olive, Safflower, Grape, Jojoba & Avocado) yet it absorbs easily and leaves a long-lasting soft feeling. I feel like it improves the overall condition of my skin, rather than just creating a temporary silky feeling (unlike some other hand creams – especially silicone-based ones!). I’ve reviewed hand creams extensively here. While Fruits & Passion is still my Holy Grail hand cream – I would rate the PP ones above Aquaphor, Neutrogena and Kiehls creams!
Chunk Big Bath Bars & Shower Gelee
Maha Satori Gelee – This wash is SLS free, yet foams up nicely. The Ginger & White Tea smell is divine BUT sadly not long-lasting. By the time I apply moisturizer I can no longer smell it on my skin.
Feng Shoap Bath Bar – I love this creamy white soap – it’s so nourishing and luxurious. It’s triple-milled and butter-based, so it’s softer than the Gender Bender soap. It has a lovely light & powdery scent. I would use this on my kids.
Cocoa Body Butter, Mood Mister & Sugar Lip Scrub
Plain Posh Cocoa Body Butter – One of my favorite products – it’s so pure and although no fragrance has been added – it has a beautiful natural cocoa scent which I LOVE. Colder weather means we’ve turned the central heating on – and this cream has been a miracle-worker on the resulting dry & itchy skin. It immediately cools our skin down and soothes it – eliminating any redness and tightness.
Lavender Mood Mister – This essential oil is for spraying on your body or surroundings. Although this product was hard to sample (since it’s a liquid placed in a jar rather than a spray) I couldn’t get over how AMAZING this smelled – I love it so much! I think this would be the perfect product to take on a long-haul flight: spray it onto your seat and blanket before settling down for a nap – it would take care of any stale smells while relaxing your body in one easy step!
Make-Out Magic Sugar Lip Scrub – I’ve not had much luck with lip scrubs before (see my thoughts on the Bath & Bodyworks one here). I had a mild case of the flu last week, which left me with dry, peeling lips. I tried my usual Vaseline + Paper towel trick, but my lips were still flaky. I applied this on my lips – and within 30 seconds, the flakes were all gone! I still had to apply lip balm after as the scrub left my lips feeling a bit dry – but I’m super-impressed at how effective this is!
Perfectly Posh products are a definite must-try for any one who likes natural and luxurious bath & body products. I love how all the product ingredients are clearly listed and explained on their website. The last 3 products I tried (Cocoa butter, Mood Mister & Lip scrub) were my favorites – they are effective and unique – and I would definitely go out and purchase them with my own money.
