The skin on my body is always dry. I've tried a ton of various lotions and creams, and while some have been great, finding one light enough for warm (and hot) weather was a chore. Eventually, I decided to just keep it simple and apply baby oil to my skin immediately after showering. I didn't pick up the one with aloe on purpose, but I'm glad I did! This oil smells nice, absorbs into the skin quickly, and leaves my skin feeling incredible soft and smooth, especially after shaving. I'm excited to try mixing this with a little bronzer and using it as a summertime body oil!
I originally purchased this as a facial moisturizer because I was looking for something gentle and thick. I used it for two consecutive nights and left the rest of my skin care routine the same. Unfortunately, it broke me out. Rather than stop using the cream altogether, I decided to use it on my body and I saw dramatic change almost instantly. Dry, wintertime skin isn't a joke and this cream is the only thing that helped. I would use a loofah to exfoliate my skin in the shower using either African Black Soap body wash or Castile Soap. Both of those soaps can be quite drying, but they leave my skin feeling cleaner than some other body washes. I would then pat the excess water off my skin and apply the cream while my skin was still warm from the shower. In just a few nights I noticed that my skin would stay feeling moisturized for most of the day, even on days of single digit temperatures and crazy heat inside. For my skin type it's too heavy for the warmer months, but this winter CeraVe moisturizing cream became an absolute essential in my skincare wardrobe.
Before using this floss, I didn't realize I could have a favorite. I use it regularly and it gets the job done, plus the mint flavor isn't too overwhelming. I've purchased multiple containers of this because it's super affordable and each pack lasts quite a while. I have multiple boxes all over and I actually need to go repurchase so I can put one back in my purse!
Fresh Direct is a LIFESAVER. Living where I do, it can sometimes be difficult to get fresh, high quality produce (especially in the wintertime). It can be a little pricey, so I don't use it every week, but I know that the food quality will be amazing and the customer service will be just as incredible. I suggest Fresh Direct to everyone I know who's new to the NYC area and looking for a reliable grocery delivery service.
I've been using witch hazel on my skin for years, especially in the summer time. I typically purchase it in drugstores or Target, depending on where I can get the best price. It's SUPER effective and I love how it makes my skin feel. I personally think this product is perfect as-is and I'll probably keep using it forever.
I have naturally curly hair, so that automatically means it has a pretty dry texture. Because of that, I really have to make sure that the conditioners I use are super moisturizing. I tried using this a deep conditioner, and it wasn't that great. I will occasionally use it as a regular conditioner or even mix a tiny amount with water to make a leave in spray, but I don't notice anything really remarkable.
It may work well as a deep conditioner for someone who doesn't have dry hair, but for my hair type and texture it isn't. Other products from the Aussie line work well on my hair though, so I feel that this brand is hit and miss.

In short, these chips are great for baking, but I don't like to eat them plain. I think there are much higher quality chocolate chips out there that don't necessarily cost a lot more. I bake them in cookies and cakes, but for foods where the chocolate stands out a little more like chocolate dipped strawberries, I prefer richer chocolates.
At first, I loved this scrub! It exfoliated my skin really well and smelled nice. Unfortunately, it was too harsh for my acne prone skin. After a few weeks, I started noticing more and more breakouts. I went to get a facial to deep clean and rejuvenate my skin and the woman explained to me that harsh exfoliants like this one can actually cause micro cuts in the surface of the skin and allow more acne causing bacteria to get in.
I had been using the product gently on my skin as well. Overall I think that this product is okay, but there are better facial exfoliants out there
So for me this didn't work well at all, but for someone with less sensitive skin/skin that isn't acne prone it might be great!
