Currently Testing!

Thought I'd do a quick post on the things I'm currently testing since its been quite a bit lately!

Zosimos HoneyBush Acne Serum
I've been using this for about a month now and I can say it isn't making as drastic of a difference on acne blemishes as I'd hoped for. For the first few days I applied it all over the face but then decided just to use it as a spot treatment. Still testing my trial size.

Benecos Maximum Volume Deep Black
I got this last night when I received my Lucky Vitamin order. I love how it applies and that it volumizes without too much length (which I don't like, as I already am blessed with long lashes) and doesn't give a spider look. I particularly like the size of the brush, it's great for the lower lashes. I did notice some of it transferred to below my lashes but I'm excited to try it out more.

Nourish Organics Deodorant in Lavender Mint
Heard about this from the lovely Britanie in her most recent favorites video. I've been testing deodorants with and without baking soda and have come to realize my underarms really just don't like it. The Nourish deodorant is free of baking soda and has wonderful gentle ingredients. I love that it comes in a deodorant tube and I love the price! Still to test more on how it wears (especially in Florida this weekend!) so I'll report back!

Burt's Bees Whitening Toothpaste Fluoride Free
Picked this up on a whim at Whole Foods when I needed some new toothpaste. The ingredients in this one looked great, as I've been taking a break from tooth chips because my teeth were started to get discolored. It's pretty thick when initially applied but I like that it actually has a mint taste unlike some other toothpastes. No, I don't want fresh 'acai' breath: I prefer mint. I love the chic look of the tube a lot, although I do miss the flip cap of my old toothpaste. Do you natural beauties use a natural toothpaste?? If so, what do you use?

PMD Persinal Micro Dermabrasion
I splurged on one for myself as a Christmas gift on EBay. I've used it twice now over two weeks. First week I used the sensitive head and felt like it did nothing. This past Sunday I used the regular head and it definitely worked. Left my face red and for the next 2days my face lotion strung when applied because it was sinking deeper into my skin. I'm going to do a full video in a few weeks.

So that's a few of the things I'm trying out! What are you trying out lately?! Let me know!


  1. I tried the Zosimos acne serum and it didn't particularly work for me either.

  2. i use kiss my face triple action toothepaste. If you try it make sure you get the paste and not the gel.

  3. I used to use the burt's bees toothpaste but the one with fluoride. I didn't find it minty enough.
