It seems like these days everyone is selling something. From jamberry nail wraps, to LuLaRoe leggings without fail someone always seems to be finding something new to shove down your throat. I try to be supportive of my friends who sell things like this, but honestly, I just find most of these items useless and I never want to fork out the cash that those products cost.
But when someone approached me about the skin care line Perfectly Posh saying they were having an online selling party for the products, I was actually interested. As you guys know, I love trying out different skin care products to review on this blog. I’m always looking for good, inexpensive but quality products to use on myself!
Perfectly Posh is a U.S. based company that makes natural skin care products. The company doesn’t use any fillers or “controversial ingredients” in their products. This includes substances such as palm oil, which is derived in a sustainable method for all Posh Products. Perfectly posh does no animal testing and a good majority of their products are vegan.
That was what really drew me to Perfectly Posh. It seemed a lot like Lush but honestly was a little bit more affordable for my budget. So I went ahead and grabbed a few products for myself to give them a try. That’s why today I want to tell you about the products I tried and what I thought of them!
All Fall Down: Big Fat Yummy Hand Crème
I actually got this as a free gift from the online party I was a part of, but as far as free gifts go, I really have enjoyed this hand Cream. It’s made with apricot kernel oil, coconut oil, vitamin E, and aloe and smells like a pear and cranberry mix. It smells very fall, and we all know that I love fall! The smell does linger for awhile, so I definitely see that as a pro.
It comes in a 3 fl. oz. container, which seems small, but it’s just a hand cream so a little lasts for a long time. It is a good moisturizer. I haven’t used it on my hands in the really bad dry hands weather, so I can’t say how durable it is compared to other moisturizer I use when my hands are literally bleeding in winter, but for a spring time moisturizer, I do like it.
Personally, I’m not a fan of the name “Big Fat Yummy Hand Crème” it seems a bit excessive to me and not very appealing, but that aside, I do think they are good products.
The All Fall Down was a seasonal scent so it isn’t available online anymore, but there are plenty of other Hand Cremes that are available that would run you for $6.
Enchant Tress: Protective Hair Serum
I haven’t decided if I really like this product or not, it’s a hair serum that is supposed to protect your hair from heat treatment, like hair drying, and calm frizz. Of course, it’s an oil based product being made from Kukui (my all time favorite) oil, jojoba oil, and argan oil to polish and tame hair. You can use it on wet or dry hair to maintain frizz.
The thing I don’t like about it is the fact it is so heavily oiled. Which, I should not have been surprised about, but has me wondering if it’s the right product for my hair type. It just makes my hair look excessively greasy instead of polished and tamed. Now, this might just be a coincidence of my hair type (which honestly I wouldn’t be able to tell you what type that is) since it makes my waves look oily.
Now with that being said, the product does tame frizz a little and I’m sure it’s protecting my hair from blow drying, which I do a lot. So it works; it just doesn’t look great with my hair.
However, it smells AMAZING! I adore the tropical smell and I don’t think I will ever get tired of it!
The bottle is relatively small, about 1.95 oz. which had me really worried with my hair length (I have at least 24 inches worth of hair), but I was surprised at how little it took to cover my entire head. That bottle will run you $19.00.
Cackle Spackle: Detoxifying Face Mask
Cackle Spackle is a face mask that contains charcoal powder, volcanic ash, kaolin clay, and spearmint. It’s said to “detox” you, but the work detox is kind of a misleading term. It doesn’t pull any toxins out of your body. What it does do is deep-cleans your face and pulls out the dirt and grime from your pores, leaving you with a fresh, clean face. The spearmint and eucalyptus also helps to tone your skin.
I really like this face mask. I’m not sure it if it really is any better than any other mask I’ve used from Lush, but it’s definitely better than some mud masks I’ve picked up at Ulta. This doesn’t cause my skin to break out at all and it leaves my face feeling very fresh and clean.
The spearmint can cause the skin to tingle and slightly “burn” especially on dry skin areas, so I wouldn’t suggest this if you have chronic dry skin. However, if you have normal to oily skin, this should work just fine for you.
I use it about once a week and really enjoy it. A small amount of it covers the face well. The smell is great. At first I worried that the black charcoal color would stain my skin and my washcloth but the product washes easily off the face and just using water and a little soap I am able to completely clean my washcloth. No stains.
A 2 oz. container of this face mask will run you $19.
Call it a Night: Nighttime Facial Oil
This is nighttime oil that is said to help you fall asleep and wake with soft skin. This oil uses safflower seed oil, jojoba oil, rosemary oil, lime oil, lavender and evening primrose along with vanilla, olive, pomegranate, and green tea extracts to help you fall asleep and moisturize your skin while you sleep.
I bought this because I was looking to replace my kukui nut oil, which was running low and I was willing to try something new. I was a little nervous when I first tried this because it smelled very strongly of lavender. (Not that I don’t adore the smell of lavender, just sometimes my face completely breaks out from using fragranced items). However, I did not break out from using it.
I can’t say I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin with using this oil. I honestly haven’t been using it religiously every single night, but I haven’t had a lot of dry skin outbreaks since using it, but I also haven’t really noticed that my skin looks more “well rested” at all. I do think the lavender scent helps me to fall asleep at night, which is great considering I am such an insomniac.
This 1 oz bottle of oil will cost you $18.00
Moisturize 911: Caffeinated Face Crème
I only used a small sample size of this moisturizing face crème, and I tried it after the party was over, but I instantly regretted not purchasing it. But no worries, it’s on my wish list for my next Posh order.
I’m really picky about what moisturizer I put on my face because even the products that seem like they are going to be great cause me to break out. I’ve gone through my fair share of Lush products that cause me to break out. So when I got a sample of this product, I was a little cautious about trying it. But after having a spell of dry skin on my cheeks, I figured why not give it a try out. Instantly I fell in love. I didn’t break out from it and it really helped my dry skin!
This product uses natural glycerin and caffeine to help tighten and brighten your skin. It also uses aloe vera and vitamin C and E to help moisturize the skin! It has a very citrusy smell, probably from the orange oil used in it!
Again, I absolutely adore this product so far and hope I won’t be disappointed when I buy the full 4 oz package which will cost me $19.
Now these are just a couple of the Perfectly Posh products that I tried. There are so many more out there to fit whatever need you may have! And the products change seasonally so there’s always something new to try!
Be warned there is a flat shipping rate of $5.99 which, trust me, I realize is pricey. So you might not want to just buy one thing at a time. Also you technically need to purchase all products through a consultant, but if you don’t know anyone, the website can let you look up a consultant near you, or any random consultant. (They really aren’t NEEDED for the purchase since everything is online so you don’t even have to really interact with your consultant if you don’t want to).
All the products I have so far tried are vegan, which I love. And I like knowing I am getting natural products that work!
