Avalon Organics Website
Bottle made with 100% recycled Materials
8.5 fl oz (251 ml)
Online $12.50
I bought it at Target for $9.99
Before using Avalon Organics, I used St.Ives green tea cleanser,
but I found out that st.ives is not a cruelty free company and is now owned
by Unilever. The first thing I was about to run out of was the above mentioned
st.ives cleanser, so I started on a search for a cruelty free cleanser and came upon this brand
from the leaping bunny list is cruelty free products.
It's a thick gel, so a little bit goes a long way...
I love the way it leaves my skin feeling soft, cleansed, and leaves my skin with a nice glow after.
Does a great job of removing makeup.
Does not leave my face feeling dry, and no flimy residue after it's rinsed off.
Great for all skin types, And has helped clear up little blemishes that I had.
Natural product without the harmful chemicals..
The Scent is not overpowering.
The orange scent does lessen during use..
How I use it:
I prefer to use it at night only before bed.
I have Combination oily skin, if I wash over wash my face, my skin reacts to the dryness by    producing more oils to compensate.
A small pump of this goes along way and lathers well.
If Im wearing liquid eyeliner I use one pump for my eyes alone and another for the rest of my face.
Would I recommend this Product ?
Yes, it works for all skin types.
If you are sensitive to smells I would air on the side of caution...

Hope you found this review helpful....
Thanks so much for reading...

Renpure Originals Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner Review

What is Argan Oil ?
1. Argan oil hydrates the hair in a natural way.It stops the curliness and
     roughness of the hair in an effecient way.
2. Argan oil penetrates into the hair pores or shafts and enhances the elasticity
     of hair. It also proves to be very nourishing for the growth of the hair.
3. Argan oil is very good for uncontrollable and unmanageable hair. It restores
     smoothness of hair and makes them managable again.
4. Natural antioxidants present in Argan oil strengthen the hair by repairing
     the damaged cellular membrane of the hair.
5.  Presence of Vitamin E in Argan oil makes it a tremendous afent for hair
     treatment. Many external and internal agents overheat, over styling and oxidation
     damage the hair. Vitamin E is very useful in restoring the natural hair and renewing
     and repairing the damage caused by destructive agents.
6. Researchers believe that non greasy Argan Oil locks the moisture in and adds to
     and restores the luster and shine of hair.
7. Color treatment of hair causes certain damage to hair, makes them brittle and
     takes away the smoothness. It is an additional benefit of Argan oil that it cures the
     brittle hair and increases the life of color treated hair. In this job it even surpasses
     in competitiveness from Jojoba oil.
8. It is believed by hair stylists that Argan oil may finally be the right choice to heal and
    restore the damaged, dry and weak hair from environmental extremes, excessive styling
    practices and perms.
9. Rich contents of unsaturated fatty acids like Omega 3 and Omega 9 in Argan oil are a
    direct source of essential nutritional components for hair pores and roots. These unsaturated
    fatty acids strengthen the protein bonding structures in hair thereby improving strength of
    hair and healing the split ends of hair.
For more info on Argan oil,

Our new Argan Oil treatment line has a unique structure
that penetrates the hair cuticle reducing friction and breakage
during washing & styling, providing a natural micro-barrier that
protects from styling heat,UV rays, resulting in amazing shine
with a silky-soft feel.
Color Safe Formula
Not tested on animals
Made in the USA
This unique blend of argan oil has micro-properties that absorb instantly into the hair for deeper penetration, repairing the deepest damage as its natural micro-barrier protects from styling heat & UV rays. The result is radiant shine with a silky-soft feel for healthy, beautiful hair.
Color Safe Formula
Not tested on animals
Made in the USA

*I like the packaging.
      *Different color for each collection, easier to shop just a matter of looking for your color.
      *Lettering has peeled off of mine (I keep mine in the shower I'm assuming its the steam
        from the hot water)

I find the scent pleasant its not OMG!! this smells amazing, but its not gah!! this is awful either. The conditioner definitely smells the best out of the two.

Does it live up to its claims ?
* I used to use Garnier Fructis (avocado, shea and ? ) And it really helped with my dry scalp
* Other shampoos & conditioners (suave, vo5,dove, pantene) left my scalp dry and itchy.
* Does it get rid of the frizz completely ? No
  But it does calm the frizzies down significantly. And I don't have to blow dry my hair
  anymore since the frizzies are under control.
*Does it protect from heat damage ?
  Not applicable. I cut my hair September of 2012 and I have significantly cut back on
  using a blow dryer, straightener & curler.
* Doesn't lather a lot, (shampoos that lather a lot are not good for your hair)
  it does take some getting used to. After I finish putting the shampoo in my hair I add a
  little water and it gives me a little bit of a lather.
My Hair after using this :
 * My waves & curls are more defined vs. one big puff lol.
 *Leaves my hair feeling clean without the greasy feeling. 
 *I have noticed the longer I have left the conditioner in the shinier it is.
  *I started using this shampoo & conditioner because I wanted more shine
  to my lackluster hair, cruelty free shampoo and conditioner. Plus it's made
  in the USA.
Would I recommend this :
*Yes, for me the product lived up to all of it's claims (with the exception of one that was not
  applicable in this case).
*I would recommend this more for those with dry scalp problems like I do, even cutting back
on using heat styling I still have dry scalp.
*Please remember that yes I can recommend this but everyone's hair responds differently to
*I had been wanting to try something new but I was afraid it wouldn't work for me, trying
  new products always has some chance/risk to it...and I'm glad I took a chance on this...( I
  thought of Abba as I wrote that last

I hope you enjoyed this review....

Chapped Lip Blues...
I am currently going through Chapped lip blues,
since I have chapped lips I thought I'd do a video
on how I like to cure my chapped lips..
Sunday before I left for work I looked in the mirror
and my lips were bright red and I wasn't wearing
any lip product at I knew I had a case of
CHAPPED LIPS!! (insert echo here lol)..the cause
of my chapped lips..not enough water Tuesday,wednesday
and Thursday I had been drinking a bottle of
water a day(16.90z) the regular size, and my body
was used to me drinking 75.0z(full 8 servings of
water recommended) daily for the past 3 weeks..
Cure # 1
Sugar Vanilla Mixture
Ingredients needed :
*Small Bowl
Making the mixture is really easy and doesn't take
that long to make, simply take a small bowl pour
a tablespoon of vanilla extract into the bowl,followed-
by a half a tablespoon of Vaseline and lastly
sugar.You want to use alot of sugar to make the
mixture a thick consistency..
Step 1- brush teeth
Step 2- using your toothbrush make circular mot-
ions on your lips,wipe away any dead skin.
Step3- Apply your favorite lip balm,leave it on for
15-20 minutes and remove.
Step4- Rub the Sugar Vanilla on lips
You can leave it on overnight and wake up to
super soft lips or leave it on for at least 20 minutes
and remove...which ever way you prefer is
I hope this helps, thanks so much for reading..
