.Elm Natural Products is focused on providing all natural essential oil products made with only 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. There are countless benefits to using essential oils for a healthier lifestyle.Featuring all natural bath and body, relief and home products.
The ingredients in Oh! de toilette spray act as a barrier on the surface of the toilet bowl water and traps odors beneath the surface. In fact, the essential oils will make your bathroom experience smell better than ever. This was the strangest product that has ever been sent to me. Living in an apartment with a room mate we use this a lot. Even after taking a shower we spray this spray because it smells so good and it still light enough not to mind. I don't really know how to review this product. I never thought I would use it in the first place. My room mate was the first to use it and loved it. This product isn't for me but my room mate loves it and how discrete it is.
This was another odd product that I thought I would never use but this came in handy when traveling. I put them in my purse when I was in the airport and on the plane and they came in handy when I wanted to refresh right as the plane landed. I don't know how to review these either because they worked but having regular toothpicks could do the trick.
This review was very underwhelming but I wanted to showcase the products that have been sent to me in all fairness. Just because a company sends me products doesn't mean I will rave about them. I would love to try the other essential oil products to change my mind about this company. I think the message of what they are creating is great but some products are unnecessary
I am finally back and I am swamped with school work. SOOOO many companies have sent me things to review for you guys! My mail room attendant was not happy with me when I had 20 packages waiting. Not a lot of people like when I review things so instead of doing 50 million review posts I am going to put the products all in one post
HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE PACKAGING! It is so simple but it runs with the theme I have going in the dorm, I have never really used a cleanser before so I didn't know what to think but my face was so clean and felt like it never felt before. I apply the cleanser every morning after I wake up and right before I put my makeup on, it's a great thing to wake up to and throughout the day even though my makeup is on my face feels clean. The Cleanser is made with Raw Honey and other natural ingredients and it doesn't feel sticky at all. I haven't used it as a makeup remover yet because I am very picky with makeup removers.
To be honest I really do not need to use the Plumping Facial Toner, the name was a big turn off for me because my face is already plump enough. The only reason that I really enjoy this product is because it has Rosehip Oil in it and that helps keep your skin healthy. I apply this once a week on Sunday just to keep my face in check. I recommend this to people that have fine lines and wrinkles or people like me that want to keep their skin happy and healthy
The Facial Serum acts as a moisturizer even though it is an oil. I don't use this product in my everyday facial routine because I like Tarte's face oil the best and I feel that works for my skin better. This serum works just the same and is great for people on a budget.
CRUNCHY MAMA BEAR also sent me a Relaxing Body Oil but I can't review it because I am giving it away!!!! Just submit a contact form entry telling me why you need to relax
Saltz & Co sent me a million products to try out but sadly I only enjoyed 3 of them. I will never review something I don't like and put up something false just because a company sent them to me. This is not saying they are a bad company but I am very picky about what I put on my skin or something that I have.
The thing that I really love from them was the Lavender Spray that you spray on your pillow or around your room at night to relax you. THIS STUFF WORKS! I usually use a balm that I rub on the bottom of my feet but this stuff makes me nod off in no time. I don't spray it around my room because lavender is a strong scent, I do two sprays of it on my pillow right as I am going to bed and it puts me to sleep in an instant. Anything to help me sleep I will try out
I have been wearing heels or sandals most of the summer and now to my classes since Atlanta is still hot, and my feet have taken a beating not being in enclosed shoes all the time. The melting Foot Balm works wonders for my feet. When I get home from school or from the gym I rub my feet with this and put my slippers on. It is not too greasy and not sticky. When I take my slippers off at night my feet feel so soft and that cares on in the morning and throughout the day.
I am a sucker for face masks and I was so excited to try this Dead Sea Mud Mask, I have so many mud masks in my collection and I love them all. This wasn't different from the rest, it did have a cooling effect that my face loved but the mask is like every other Dead Sea Mud Mask. I do recommend buying a brush or applicator because things can get messy
This is the most expensive face oil I have tried, I don't spend a lot of money on makeup or face products but sometimes you have to. This face oil is life changing. It is made out of pressed planted-based oils and it has a lot of claims like: repairing sun damage, protects from stress, softens fine lines, and moisturizes. I don't really need to smooth fine lines like I said before and I don't have a lot of sun damage but it evened out my skin tone which I needed. This is the only skincare product that has evened out my skin tone and now I swear by it. I don't have dry skin and thats what it is for so I only use half a drop for my face. If you don't have to money please don't feel like you have to get this, there are so many other face oils out there. If I had fine lines and wrinkles I might be telling a different story.
organic to green stole my heart with the packaging. I was so excited when I saw this bag. I got sent the GInger collection and I was scared I wasn't going to like it, coconut oil is a little too much for my skin but this was perfect. The oil in the package I ended up using for a neck and chest oil because I have so many other face oils. My chest has been breaking out for awhile but this cleared it up real quick. I put it on right after I get out of the shower and it makes my skin glow.
The two other products I can't review because I am giving them away, along with the cute bag that they came in! I am overwhelmed with products and I want to give them to someone who can love them. Submit a contact form telling me your favorite use for coconut oil
Those are all the products. If you sent me something I did not receive it
all blog posts are postponed until further notice. I have products to review and I will review them but I can not get to my mail since we are evacuating Atlanta and I can't get to my mail box or even my apartment if you have a problem with this please let me know
I am on the road right now and I will be on to road until September 12. Going back to college! I am excited but I wish I could stay at home for a couple more weeks. My face has been breaking out with all the fast food and not properly taking care of it on the road. Before I left I was sent a beautiful package from HEARTSCENT Aromatherapy and I have started using it on the road. The products are really easy to use and I have been able to have a skincare routine whilst traveling.
All the products have natural and simple ingredients, ones you can pronounce, and they are designed for you. The packaging is also amazing.
I don't use facial cleansers because my face hasn't found the one it likes yet. I had a bad breakout on my chin and cheeks from sunscreen. Only two uses of just this cleanser and my breakout disappeared and I didn't have any marks to show that I had a breakout. To apply, I wet my face with a wash cloth and used one pump of the product and applied all over my face and wiped the product off with a hot wash cloth. Everyone knows that I love face oil and this cleanser is infused with Argan oil. With this cleanser I can take out two steps on my regular routine to have a faster travel routine.
of course I had to throw a face oil in here. I don't have a problem with dry skin, I have combination skin but this works as a good night face oil. Again, I only use about one pump, I can see these products lasting me awhile because the payoff with little is great. After putting this on I let this work for about ten minutes before removing with a hot washcloth. When removing this product your face will feel cleaner than ever before and the product just smells cleans. If that makes sense
this body butter is supposed to be used st night to relax you and work over night. I don't use it all over I just use it on my legs and I hate to say but it works a lot better than my homemade argan oil body butter. My legs feel clean in the morning and they feel soft, they oil does not make you feel as oily use you would think. It feels like a regular dream as you rub it in
traveling on the road can be stressful but with the right products it can be a breeze
What an interesting brand!!! I have been dying to try them out because of how unique they are! If I had to work at any skin care/beauty company, this would be the one! (Are y'all hiring?). To give the products all a fair try I got the sampler kit.
The first thing that I fell in love with is that their products do not contain any harsh chemicals or synthetic additives/preservatives and they are all coconut oil based! What a great company.
Dr.Bronner's products are made with organic and fair trade ingredients, are biodegradable, and packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. What more could you ask for? These products aren't just good for the environment they are great for you. I got to test out a few products and I am fully converted to this brand.
OKAY THIS PRODUCT IS FREAKING AMAZING! I have been wanting to try this product for a few months. After seeing this product in a Buzzfeed article, it has been on my Amazon Wishlist ever since. Not only is this product hand sanitizer it is also an air freshener. Throughout this post you will see that all this products have multi uses. This product is always in my purse or in my art bag. When working with paint or charcoal or even markers I get covered and I need something that is powerful but does not dry out my hands. THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL and I am already ordering replacements to have it stashed in every bag I own.
Okay I have always been a little skeptical about organic toothpaste, I just felt like it could never get the job done quite as well as the "real thing", but my mouth has never felt so clean. The peppermint toothpaste has to be my favorite out of the two, the cinnamon one is a little too overpowering but both have the same result. I do wish that the peppermint toothpaste came in a bigger tube because I go through toothpaste a lot.
No one can have enough lip balm. I am a devout Burt's Bees customer because my skin and lips are very sensitive and only a few products work. The lemon lime lip balm was a little weird for me but I put it on in the morning under my lipstick during my morning routine. At night when I am doing my night time routine I use the peppermint lip balm after I brush my teeth and it lasts all night until the morning. I am used to putting lip balm on about every three hours but this stuff is life changing.
There is nothing these soaps can't do! Use it as a face toner, regular soap, bathroom cleaning, house cleaning and many more uses that would blow your mind. I break out using scented soaps so I stay away from them but there are no detergents or chemicals that aren't natural so I decided to test these out. Both smell amazing but my favorite is the Eucalyptus soap. Since these soaps have so many uses, I use each one for a different purpose. Like the lip balm, each soap is in both my morning and night routine. I use the Hemp Rose soap as a face toner in the morning, it is nice and refreshing and the first thing I use in my morning routine. For the Hemp Eucalyptus soap, I use it as the last product in my night time routine. Eucalyptus is a calming scent so I use it as a nighttime toner instead of a strong scented toner that would wake me up. Again I wish I could get these in bigger bottles with their many uses I am bound to run out of product in no time.
Magic Balm! No false claims this stuff is pure magic. I am really picky with lotion and balms because I like to home make my own so I know what is in it and if my skin breaks out I know what is in the product. This helps because it is unscented so I know I won't break out. Unlike other products it is the perfect balance of moisturizing and drying but not drying your skin. You can use this as body butter, face cream, hand cream, foot cream, or any other cream you can think of. The tin is cute as well so you can stay in the theme of recycling and reuse the packaging. Y'all know I am a sucker for packaging.
Here is another Magic Balm that is actually pure magic. I have used a lot of products to feel a sense of calm and help me sleep throughout the night. This is a product I do not use very often because I do not have a lot of aches and pains. But after attending a concert, I decided to test this magic. My back was killing me but after 20 minutes of applying this magic balm I felt relief and the pain was gone. I got a great night sleep and when I woke up the pain was still gone.
Dr. Bronners is looking to help the Earth, animals, and you. ALL-ONE OR NONE!
My new obsession in the beauty world is skincare. I used to look over it and just smudge cheap products all over my skin hoping it will help. Now that I am older (well not really) I have upgraded a lot of my skincare stash. I have turned to more organic and some homemade products because I like to be able to pronounce what is going on my skin
This is a homemade body butter, made by my aunt. I swear by this and I rub it everywhere I can. It is a bit greasy but your legs and anything else that needs some moisture will love you for this. I love this Body Butter because there are only 3 ingredients. 3 INGREDIENTS! To make this perfect Body Butter all you need is Coco Butter, Coconut OIl and Almond Oil
Another cream that I swear by is Body Merry's Stretch Mark and Scar cream. It smells amazing and works like a dream. I use this on my face because I have acne scars and a scar on my forehead. After a month of using this product every scar I hated has disappeared. I use this product twice a day and I love it. I know it is supposed to be a body lotion but my face is the only place that I have marks that I want to go away and it does it job and you can get it from Amazon.
I want to thank Ipsy for introducing me to this life changing face oil. I never used a face oil before this one and I fell in love. I did not really get putting oil on your face when your face was oily but this stuff is magic. My face has never felt more smooth or looked so clear. I swear by this stuff. I still have my sample sized product after two months of using 2 drops every night and I am about to upgrade to the bigger size because I justify spending money on this oil. Tarte was never really a brand I saw myself using but after using this oil I own a couple more makeup products by them.
I just got this Herbal Cleansing Oil by Plant Makeup and I am in love. It works a bit different than the Tarte oil so I am still getting used to it. You are not supposed to leave the oil on your face after putting it on you are told to wash it off. Unlike the Tarte oil that feels like oil on your skin this feels like a toner and once we wipe your face off you feel like you just washed your face. All I can say about this product is that it is MAGIC! Plant Makeup is my new favorite natural brand and I own a few things by them
This is another product by Plant Makeup that I swear by!I don't really like chamomile products but this smells amazing. Like the cleansing oil you feel refreshed and clean. I use this two times a day, you probably shouldn't but I am addicted to the clean feeling that stays on your face for hours after.
This is another Ipsy product that I was so grateful to receive. Eye serums are my impulse buy everywhere I go, I have terrible under eye bags even though I sleep soo much, I don't use it as a Lip cream because my lips are sensitive and this serum comes out thick like glue and it works well on your eyes but scares me on my lips. This is the second to last product I use in my night time routine and I wake up with slightly less intense eye bags.
All the praise for Plant Makeup, my new favorite brand. This is the last product I use in my nighttime routine and I LOVE it. This Dream Balm has cured my curse of waking up every hour of the night. When I get in bed I rub this on my neck, my wrists and right under my nose. About five minutes after I put the balm on I am dozing off. This is a new staple.
this box is literally my favorite box!!! I was so surprised on how jammed packed with goodies that help women get through the month and inspire them whenever they use this products.
i was greeted with something that made me squeal with excitement when I opened the box. COLOR YOUR OWN CARDS + colored pencils!!! What a great thing to start off with! I have already been coloring and sending the cards off, they are great for when you are sitting outside enjoying the summer weather and in need of something to keep your hands busy
i think they made this box just for me! TEA!! And Mint Tea at that! Along with this full sized container of tea bags there were two separate two bags of the same flower. This lovely little company is run by women and I will be ordering from them soon!
Along with the tea cake gourment lollipops but they were gone before I could take a picture (they were sooo good),I usually do not enjoy lollipops but they were right there and they looked amazing.
i am a sucker for any lip tint or lip balm that I can throw in my purse and try whenever I am on the run. Another thing that got me excited about this lip tint was that it was from Hawaii and every Hawaiian skincare product I have ever tried is amazing and I was not disappointed. I hope I don't lose this in the bottom of my purse like the rest.
the box had a lot more products but I am surprising one of you lucky readers with the rest of the contents. I can tell you they are amazing and that you will love them. I am giving away 4 products to one lucky person. All you have to do is go to the contact section of this blog and tell me your favorite subscription box and you will be entered in the running for four great mystery products
CUTEST SUB BOX EVER! PINEAPPLES!!! Are you freaking kidding me? I was giddy when I was sorting through this box. Everything I got from this box has intended receivers already and I am so excited to hear what they think
the first thing in the box was the cutest Post Card I have ever seen! I need to know who their artists are because these are precious.
this card could work as a print all by itself. Like the description given in the box it can be used for an occasion. My cousin who just got engaged will be receiving this and I hope she finds at as cute as I do.
There are no pineapples on this but it is still darn cute. I really need to find these in bulk because they are the cutest cards from giveaways. Hey Ginger Mail if you are reading this, where can I these? Speaking of giveaways some lucky reader will find this card in the mail among some other specials goodies.
This caldender is so cute! I already have my days crossed and circled. It is made out of a card stock so I have it placed inside my bando planner to keep it safe.

good luck xx Shelby
Subscription boxes are all the rage now! Who knew? These next few weeks I will be reviewing some subscription boxes that can help you out with everything in life. Culture Carton is for men (not a lot of men reading this I know), a box comes monthly with things to you to educate yourself and be a man. I got sent the book of the month and surpringly I am excited to read it. All that came in the package was a book and I was surprised about the quality of the book, it was dusty and looked used. For most people that is a turn off, I didn't really care it just surprised me. Maybe because I am an girl and like frilly packaging.
The book that I was sent was "on the road" by Jack Kerouac, I have never heard of it but reading the reviews I knew it would an eyebrow raiser and something that I could devour on my upcoming camping trip and share with my dad when I was done.
I wish I could write more about this subscription box but all I got was a book and it's not far to review the book that I have not read.
