  1. Love these beauty tips as I am seeking the right products for skin care. I haven’t heard of that citrus soap and that sounds great as well as the products with the SPF. Great article!

  2. I don’t know about mascara.. But I’ve recently rediscovered the Kiss My Face brand and I love their cleanser! I have problematic skin and it’s been a long road of finding the right products. I’m intrigued by the facial spray!

  3. Great post! I’m always looking for ways to make life easier as a busy mom. I’ve tried the coconut oil on my hair (it’s amazing!) but I’ll have to try the others on the list. Thanks!

  4. Oooooh I’ve been wanting to try that Citrus version of Dr Bronners! I already love the lavender and the baby versions so the citrus is going on the list!

  5. I am always looking for new/better skin care products. I will definitely check these out. I love anything with coconut oil so I will have to try it as a replacement for lotion.

  6. Great list. Thank you! Coconut oil in my hair though… this one’s new to me (lotion, yes, but hair…?). Do you apply it like conditioner and rinse out, or…?

  7. I love everything you use, except I need to try the no foundation foundation and no highlighter highlighter. Those look like something I need in my life! I’m one tired mama that loves skincare products!
