Some New Products that I Love

Sometimes I want to tell you, my fabuloid readers, about crap I like.  But sometimes it's a bit much to do a post for every product.  So here's a few products in one post.  Whaaaaaaaat.

First of all, these are new to ME products.  They have probably been around for a gazillion years but I like them NOW so I'm going to review them NOW.  And no, unfortunately I'm not getting paid for this and I wasn't given a free sample.  BUT, if a company like.... say... MERRELL wanted to give me a free pair of their awesome PACE GLOVE BAREFOOT SHOES... I would TOTALLY review them.  Just saying.  Merrell. Please.



First up.... Malibu Tan Golden Glow Skin Firming Bronzing Moisturizer Hemp Body Lotion.  Ohhhh my gosh that's the longest name on earth.

I got this at Walmart for less than $6.  And mine has 40% MORE, it's 24.5 ounces for LESS THAN 6 BUCKS.  I think Walmart is one of the only couple stores that sell it, so yes, you have to go into the belly of the beast, Wally world.


BUT IT'S SO WORTH IT!  This stuff gives you a nice, gradual tan, and it's SO moisturizing.  My skin feels awesome.  Sometimes self-tanners leave you smelling like crap, even if they smelled okay when you first put them on, they get nasty.  Malibu Tan smells awesome when you put it on, and all day long.  It has a definite coconut smell to it, but also a bit of a sugary, almost chocolate scent.  It's not overpowering, and there's enough of a musky undernote that keeps it from being too sweet.  It's awesome.  You should totally try it.  It's SO much better than Banana Boat, Jergens, and Nivea, all which ended up smelling nasty after an hour or so.

Here are the ingredients, in case you are interested:
Water, Propylene Glycol, Coconut (Cocos Nucifera) Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Stearate, Dihydroxyacetone, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Hempseed (Cannabis Sativa) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Erythrulose, Ubiquinone, Butylene Glycol, PEG-8, Bupleurum Falcatum Extract, Caffeine, Coenzyme A, Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Oil, Jojoba (Buxus Chinensis) Oil, Sunflower (Helianthus Annuus) Seed Oil, Olive (Olea Europaea) Oil, Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) Oil, Green Tea (Camellia Oleifera) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Sodium Gluconate, Potassium Sorbate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance, BHT, Citric Acid.

Seriously, this stuff is GOLD.  It takes about 5-10 minutes to totally dry though, so be prepared for 5-10 minutes of nakeyness in your bathroom.

Next awesome product is Teeccino Caffeine-Free Herbal Coffee in Hazelnut.  It's a "coffee substitute" that doesn't have coffee or tea in it.  Here are the ingredients: organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, dates, almonds, organic dates, natural hazelnut flavor, organic figs.  It sounds really weird, but it totally does taste like coffee and it's delicious.  I added some yummy flavored creamer to it and it's heaven.  AND, I'm not supposed to be drinking a lot of coffee, and this is totally satisfying my coffee longing.

It comes in super convenient tea bags, so it's easy to throw a couple in my bag and bring them to work.  Since it's caffeine free, it doesn't have the kick of coffee, but that's okay.  It's still awesome.

I realize that these aren't a product as much as a piece of clothing... but...

I just got these super cute "Pedal Pushers" from Old Navy.  They were on clearance for like $5!!!  They are so super duper cute.  They're a linen-cotton blend and totally appropriate for the office when paired with a cute blouse.  And if you're short like me, it's hard to find capris that aren't too long.  Sometimes capris look like just slightly too short pants on me, which looks dumb.

SO cute.  And they totally fit my hips (they're wide, y'all) but not at all dowdy.  SO CUTE.  Seriously, if you're by an Old Navy, GO CHECK OUT THE CLEARANCE SECTION.  These are adorable.

So yeah, these are my new things, and they are awesome.
