YULI Skincare Panacea Elixir

I am terribly, terribly sad I am already out of this Panacea Elixir by YULI Skincare. I went through the trial version in a week, and I loved using it to set makeup and as a refreshing mist during the day. It has all sorts of goodness in it for balancing, hydrating, and decongesting the skin which is awesome, and smells kind of like dates (the fruit. Not sure what dates with people smell like). Would definitely repurchase if I wasn’t a poor musician. ($12.00 – trial, $36.00 – full)

Acure Organics Dry Shampoo

Cannot stress how much this dry shampoo saves my life daily. I have pretty oily hair and awkward bangs that I’m kind of growing out so I can barely survive washing my hair every other day. But with this product, I tap a bit of the powder in my hand, press it into the roots of my hair, leave it in for a couple minutes, brush it out, and voila — non-greasy hair for the win. ($12.99)

Andalou Naturals Shampoo

My first empty since transitioning to organic beauty products. This has been a nice shampoo for the past 3 or so odd months – fresh, gets the job done, and I can survive washing every other day (occasionally every two but with lots of dry shampoo) even in the summer. My hair does have a healthy shine with this, and I can get away without using conditioner in the summer, but it gets dry even with conditioner in the fall/winter now.

I am looking suspiciously at the “Sodium Lauryl Glucosides Hydroxypropyl Sulfonate” and “Sodium Cocoyl Methyl Taurate” which are 2nd and 3rd on the ingredients list. Cosmetics and Toiletries and Truth in Aging say both are surfactants which I think I could do without, but I can live with it. The price of $9.95 doesn’t hurt too much either.
