Maui Moisture Body Care – Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion Review

Maui Moisture Body Care - Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion

Hello, hello!

I’m back after a short hiatus with a review of a new body care product from Maui Moisture – the Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion that I bought for myself recently. In the past I’ve reviewed some of their hair care line (here and here). [info in italics taken from the Maui Moisture website]

Maui Moisture Body Care - Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion

Deeply quench, soften and renew skin with Maui Moisture’s Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Silicone Free Body Lotion. Creamy shea butter is infused into this hydrating body lotion, blended with rich coconut and macadamia oils. This formula deeply quenches and softens for renewed, silky soft skin. Unlike some other body products that start with deionized water, Maui Moisture starts with a unique blend with aloe vera and is infused with coconut water, the results? Moisturized skin and a healthy-looking glow with every use!

This scent is similar to their Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner. It is super hydrating and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. It does, however take a little longer to absorb into the skin – so this is not the one to use if I am in a rush. But once absorbed, the hydration is long lasting!

Have you tried any of their body care line?

Empties – January 2018

Hello, hello!

I’m still working my way through my stash, and managed to finish up a few more things in January. There are a few more that are *so close* to being finished, so they’ll be in next month’s empties post.

January 2018 Empties

Hair and body care products:

January 2018 Empties

Maui Moisture Strength & Anti-Breakage Agave Shampoo & Conditioner – If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you’ll know that I’ve tried out several of the shampoo and conditioner sets from Maui Moisture over the past year or so. I think that this one is my favourite thus far. I’m currently trying out a set from another cruelty free brand, so I won’t be repurchasing right away. Review is here.

Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter in The Briar Path – This is one of their seasonal scents, so it isn’t always available, and not easily replaceable right now. I’ve spoken about my love for their Pumpkin Butters many times. I think that this might be one of the last full size jars in my stash.

Skincare and aromatherapy:

January 2018 Empties

Matter Lip Balm – This was given to me for my birthday, and it went everywhere with me in my bag as it was attached to my key ring. I’m a lip balm addict, so you know that I loved this peppermint and orange oil based balm! I have a few more lip balms in my stash to use up, but this one is on my re-stock list. Review is here.

Rebels Refinery Capital Vices Lip Balm in Passionfruit – I had two of these lip balms, and I’ll likely get another one the next time I’m in Toronto. At first I thought that this was going to be a cool looking, but terrible lip balm, but it was not the case! Review is here.

Odacitè Synergie [4] Immediate Skin Perfecting Beauty Masque – This came in a recent Petit Vour box. I really liked how it made my skin feel super cleansed, but not stripped. It is quite pricy, so I won’t be purchasing the full size at this point in time. Review is here.

Saje Natural Wellness Immune Diffuser Blend – I use this whenever one of us in the house is feeling under the weather. I have a stash of essential oils (singles and blends) for my diffuser, so I don’t need to replace this right away. Review is here.

Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Bath & Shower Oil – Another Petit Vour sample. This was a lovely bath oil, so perfect for relaxing after yoga! It is fairly pricy, so I won’t be purchasing a full size right now. Review is here.

Makeup:

January 2018 Empties

Physicians Formula Super BB #InstaReady Bb Cream – I got this at Generation Beauty in 2016, so it is time to get rid of this. I have not used this for ages, but remember liking it when I was using it. I have other products in my stash to use up, so I won’t be replacing it. Review is here.

Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Ultra Natural Mascara – This was another Petit Vour item. Sadly this mascara did not work for me, so I’ll not be purchasing the full size version. Review is here.

ColourPop SuperShock Shadow in Birthday Girl – This was a limited edition gift with purchase to celebrate ColourPop’s birthday back in 2015. When I tried to use it over the holidays, I found that it was dried out, so into the bin it goes. Review is here.

Did you finish up very many products this past month?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Maui Moisture Strength & Anti-Breakage Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Strength & Anti-Breakage Agave Shampoo and Conditioner from Maui Moisture. I’ve been using this for about 7 or 8 weeks now.

 

Maui Moisture Agave

I’ve previously tested out the Nourish & Moisture + Coconut Milk and the Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter sets (here and here). All info in italics is taken from the Maui Moisture website.

MauiMoisture Agave4

This velvety shampoo [and creamy conditioner] is infused with rich agave, hibiscus and pineapple extract. It’s gentle enough for the most fragile strands while helping to increase elasticity and helps strands resist breakage. Your hair is left tangle free with a healthy shine.

To be honest, the main reason why I purchased this set was because I really liked the scent – I love the combination of the agave, hibiscus and pineapple – it is mildly scented and not at all overpowering or sickly!

MauiMoisture Agave5

Although I do colour my hair, it is not particularly damaged, but it is prone to dryness at the ends, tangles and frizz. I like my shampoo and conditioner to make my hair feel clean, soft / hydrated, and help keep it shiny. This shampoo and conditioner set is working well to tame my thick, wavy hair –  my hair looks and feels super healthy right now, and my ends aren’t as dry as usual.

Have you tried any of the shampoos / conditioners from Maui Moisture? Which one is your fave? If not, what is your current favourite shampoo / conditioner?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Empties October 2017

Hello, hello!

Today I have my stash of empties for October – I think I made good progress in using things up this month!

October 2017 Empties

Maui Moisture Revive + Hydrate Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner – This worked really well for my thick, wavy, frizz-prone hair. I just purchased the Strength + Anti-Breakage Agave Shampoo and Conditioner to try out instead of repurchasing this one. Review is here.

October 2017 Empties

Ahimsa Naturals Solid Brush Cleanser in Rosemary & Lavender – This was a great brush cleanser, it took me almost 2.5 years to use up. If I can find this locally, I’ll repurchase. Review is here.

Saje Natural Wellness Stress Relief Diffuser Blend – Once I use up a few more of the essential oils in my stash, this will be one of the ones that I will be repurchasing as the lavender based scent is so lovely and relaxing. Review is here.

Oct 2017 Empties

Badger Balm Ginger & Lemon Lip Balm – This was a good lip balm, I might repurchase once my stash is used up. This one was never reviewed.

Saje Natural Wellness Lip Balms in Sweet Lips and Tingle Lips – I loved both of these lip balms, and plan to repurchase the next time that I order some Diffuser Blends from Saje. Review is here.

The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer – I liked this primer a lot, but it started to thicken and congeal (GROSS) so I didn’t bother finishing the last bit in the bottle. I don’t think that I will repurchase this one as there are other primers that I’d like to try. Review is here.

Oct 2017 Empties

Neal’s Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Lift Serum* – I am sad that this one is finished, this might be the most beautiful serum that I’ve ever used. Sadly it is pricy, and I don’t have the budget to repurchase this right now. But it is going to the top of my wishlist! Review is here.

The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% Emulsion – This is one of the best and most affordable retinol serums that I’ve ever used. I’ve already repurchased a back up of this one. Review is here.

The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA – I’ve tried this one and the Buffet, both are peptide serums and both work well. But I don’t need both of them. I’ve already repurchased the Buffet serum. Review is here.

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% – This made my skin look great, but my skin never adjusted and it always stung when I used it. Instead of repurchasing this one, I am currently testing out the Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% (also from The Ordinary). Review of the Vitamin C Suspension is here, review of the serum is coming later this month.

E Nature Birch Juice Hydro Sleeping Pack – This sample came in my September Ipsy GlamBag. I’ve been occasionally using it a night when I felt like my skin needed a moisture boost. I have so many night creams / sleeping packs on my wish list, that I’m not going to be purchasing a full size of this one at this time. I never actually reviewed this one, but I really liked it.

So there you have it, all the things I’ve managed to use up this month! Have you finished up very many things this month?

Today I’d like to share this month’s fave products in skincare, haircare and makeup. I’m going to limit myself to two products per category.

Skincare:

The Ordinary “Buffet” Serum – I just finished my first bottle of this serum and I’ll be ordering a new one after my upcoming vacation. Original review is here.

Farmacy Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil – I’ve recently rediscovered this gem of a cleansing oil in my stash and have been using this one quite a bit over the past month. Original review is here.

MauiMoisture5

Maui Mositure Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner – This shampoo and conditioner set really has helped keep my hair under control during the summer months. Original review is here.

Makeup:

Bite Beauty Everday Agave Lip Mask – I apply this every night before I go to bed and wake up with the softest / smoothest lips. Original review is here.

Maison Jacynthe Illuminator *- I am so in love with this beautiful highlighter. I think that I’ve worn it every single time I’ve worn makeup this month! Original review is here.

There you have it, my faves for the month of July. What were your faves this month?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

July 2017 Empties

Hello, hello!

I did not finish up as many products as I had hoped for July, but some progress is better than no progress!

July 2017 Empties

As you can see, I’ve mostly finished hair care products this month. I was super close to finishing up several skin care products, but I guess that they will be in my August empties.

July 2017 Empties

Maui Moisture Nourish & Moisture + Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner* – originally reviewed here. I really loved this shampoo and conditioner, and would definitely buy it again, but I purchased the Shea Butter formulation to try out as its replacement.

CO LAB Dry Shampoo in Tokyo Scent – If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile, you will see the CO LAB Dry Shampoo appear in my empties on a fairly regular basis.  I usually buy the Rio scent, but it wasn’t in stock when I went to repurchase it, so I go this one instead. I’ll be repurchasing this one (or the Rio) soon.

July 2017 Empties

The Ordinary “Buffet” Multi Technology Peptide Serum – Originally reviewed here. I love this serum – it worked well for my skin. I plan on repurchasing this one along with a few new products to try out from The Ordinary.

Did you finish up many products this month? Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Disclosure: Products marked with an asterix * are PR samples, the rest have been purchased by me.
