The first item caught me a little off guard. It's so bright! But looks are deceiving! Blueberry Nourish and Shimmer Lip Gloss looks exactly like blueberry puree. I notice that the lip gloss has separated, no biggie, I shake it all back together and apply hoping I do not look like a clown and thankfully, I do not. It is very sheer with a hint of shimmer.
Made with caster and coconut oil, It feels more like an treatment than a gloss. It's very oily in consistency and I can feel a gritty texture. I'm not sure if this is the shimmer or the coconut oil leaving behind the gritty feel but as I am writing this post, I had the gloss perched on my mac. I mention this because the warmth from my computer has warmed the gloss and now there is no grit - leaving me to believe it is the coconut oil. Like shea butter, if the oils are not melted to the right point and for a specific amount of time, they can develop a gritty texture until re-emulsified. I wish it were more pigmented as I am not a fan of layering products - I want one and done. I rate this gloss, 3.5 out of 5 stars. I wish this gloss were more like Girls Dig Pearls by TooFaced. I would be interested in trying another shade/flavour but I wouldn't spend $20 to do so.
|Please note: I have a LOT of gloss on in the swatch - it is not this pigmented.|
The Crisp Vanilla Lotion. Where do I begin? Perhaps with a warning: Do not eat this lotion, it is not cake batter! Light and airy, this creamy lotion smells amazing. I am not a fan of vanilla, it happens to be my least favourite scent... but this.... It is not your typical vanilla, it truly smells like cake batter. Not overly sweet but natural and rich. I would absolutely repurchase this product in this scent. The formula is very moisturizing, it sinks in quickly while leaving my hands ultra soft. Since it is all natural, there is no residue or waxy feeling on my skin. It comes out of the squeeze tube like a whipped airy cream, I am unsure of the texture with the full size pump dispenser, which retails for $26.00. I am totally in love. I rate this product 4.5 out of 5 stars.
All in all I am really pleased with these 3 Delizioso Skincare products which were part of The Natural Beauty Box for August 2012.
