Perfectly Posh is My New Obsession

Recently, I was introduced to a bath & body/skincare brand called Perfectly Posh and I'm already obsessed! Pretend that Lush and Bath & Body Works had a baby and you'll have somewhat of an idea of what the products are like. So far, I love everything I've tried (when can you ever say that about a brand?) and the packaging is equally as impressive as the's just adorable.

Today I wanted to introduce you to two of their most popular products but before I do that, here's a few quick points about the company:

  • Founded in October 2011 in Salt Lake City, UT
  • Everything is made in the USA
  • Everything is under $25
  • Paraben-free, Sulfate-free, Cruelty-Free, Mineral Oil-Free, Lanolin-Free
  • They use natural ingredients that are good for your skin
  • Fragrances are gentle, phthalate-free and often over 95% natural
The Perfectly Posh brand philosophy is all about taking the time (even if it's just 10 or 15 minutes a day) to pamper yourself and to make yourself feel good.

Let's take a look! 

The first product I got to try was the Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme ($8-$9) in Merry Berry and I'm not even kidding, it's already my new holy grail hand cream! It's made with Coconut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Vitamin E and feels very thick and rich going on. Then as soon as you're done rubbing it in, maybe 10-15 seconds later, it's gone! It sinks in completely and disappears and you're left with super soft hands, no residue whatsoever. The first time I tried it I was blown away. I have never used a hand cream that soaked in that fast and that's awesome.

The scent Merry Berry is an early release for Holiday 2016 and it smells amazing. It's described as a "sweet and tart winter berry" and it is really gorgeous. It isn't too sweet or cloying like some berry scents can's fresh and a little brisk, with a bit of sweet berry mixed in.

So far, I've tried three different scents, and I loved each one (even though they were all very different). I'm not sure about the entire range, but at least the ones I've tried are very balanced...not too sweet, not too overpowering...just right. They're also very long lasting! They hold up through at least one hand-washing, sometimes two! After scrubbing up with soap and water, my hands still feel soft after I dry them and the scent is still's incredible.

Here's a look at the entire range...there's definitely something for everyone and the names are so cute! I will definitely be gifting these to people I know for Christmas...not only because the quality is amazing, but because the names remind me of certain people. For instance, one of my friends is always saying "Oh Snap" so she will definitely be getting that one. Another girl I know loves to use the expression "Hot Mess" so I can't not grab that one for her. 
You can check out the entire range and scent descriptions on the Posh website. I'm obsessed with the scent Boho Soul...if you like soft, warm, skin-type scents it will blow your mind. I want to bathe in it...seriously I've already used it all over as a body cream and my tube is going to be gone soon. It's hard to find a scent like it that doesn't have musk in it (I'm not really a fan of musk) and also one that lasts that long...the scent throw is just so good, which is really rare for a super soft, subtle scent like this. 
Perfectly Posh Big Fat Yummy Hand Cremes

Next up is the Chunk soap ($8-$9 each) in the scent Pining For You, which is also an early Holiday 2016 Release. It smells like Christmas to has a pine scent that makes me think of the good old days when my Dad used to go and cut down a Christmas Tree to put up in the's a really nostalgic scent for me and my husband loves it too! 

The Chunk soaps are made with moisturizing ingredients like Shea Butter, Palm Oil, and Glycerin rather than the tallow (animal fats) you can find in a lot of other soaps.  They're huge bars (you almost need two hands to hold them) and they'll last about 3 months with daily use! They produce a soft and creamy lather that doesn't strip your skin, which I love because mine is so dry, especially this time of year. 
Posh also makes a soap called a Snarky Bar which has scrubbies in it to exfoliate your body without having to use a scrub (I'll be reviewing those in a separate post). 
Once again, I'm dying over some of the names! I really want to try I Love You a Whole Brunch (sparkling citrus and spicy cardamom), Strawberry Fields Forever (fresh strawberry & zippy lime), Bless Your Heart (Southern peach, magnolia, and cottonseed), and Rolling in the Deep (sandalwood, palo santo, and light amber citrus). My sister is a huge Beetles fan so she's going to love Strawberry Fields! 
You can check out all of the Chunk bars with their scent descriptions on the Posh website as well.

Another thing I wanted to mention about Perfectly Posh is that they are also a direct sales company (like Avon or Stella & Dot), but you do not have to join or become a sales consultant to place an order...anyone can place an order with no obligation at all!

Overall, I'm so impressed with Perfectly Posh and I can't wait to share more products with you guys!


Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette Review | First Impression

tarte tarteist pro palette review
I recently picked up the new Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette ($53) from the Tarte website and I was so excited when it arrived yesterday! I wanted to post a quick first impression with swatches because I know quite a few of you were holding off on buying this until you had some more information on it. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed with their holiday sets, but they are definitely back on track with this palette!

Also, I just want to note that this palette is made in the U.S.A. and is permanent. It should be hitting stores in November (not sure of the date yet but will update this post when I find out).

Let's take a look...

J. Cat Beauty White Goddess Highlighter is Pale Girl Approved

There are so many highlighters on the market these days and I don't even want to admit how many I've added to my collection in the past year or so. But as we head into winter and I've stopped self-tanning, my skin has taken on a new shade of pale....and some of my summer highlighters just aren't going to cut it. I've been looking for a lighter highlight that will show up on fair skin tones, but have been resisting the urge to shell out the $38 for Becca's Pearl highlighter. That's when I found J. Cat You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in White Goddess ($8.99). It looked light enough on the website, but did it work for me?

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream Review

it cosmetics eye cream review
Being the beauty nerd/junkie that I am, I've been reading up on skincare since I was a teenager and as a result, I started using eye cream in my early 20's, before I really "needed" it.  I had learned that your eyes are usually the first thing to show the signs of aging on your face, in part because the skin is very thin and delicate there, and also because our eyes show a lot of expression. As a result, I guess you could say I've become a bit of an eye cream junkie!

That's why I was psyched when one of my favorite makeup brands, IT Cosmetics, launched their skincare line at Sephora. The first thing I had my eye on (no pun intended, haha) was the new Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream ($48). If my experience with IT Cosmetics' makeup line has taught me anything, it's that their products actually work, so the thought of them putting their expertise into skincare was really exciting to me.
