Let's get into this months goodies, shall we?
The website says: Say goodbye to dry, brittle hair! This bamboo extract enriched formula drenches your hair with organic proteins and silica to help strengthen your hair and create brilliant shine. It gently cleanses without stripping away your colour, leaving you with incredibly soft healthier looking hair. Provides the most moisture you can get in a daily conditioner, giving you unparalleled salon quality results. Helps seal your hair cuticle and retain moisture to promote shine.
Wow, those are some big claims! This formula sounds perfect for me, with my mermaid-coloured hair.
First impressions: Well, first off - it smells amazing! Do you remember Thrills gum? It smells like Thrills tastes! That was a funny coincidence. Anyway, the shampoo and conditioner went on so beautifully, and left my hair lightly scented and soft as anything. When I combed it out, the tangles released easily as well. The only thing I didn't care for was the fact that quite a lot of colour was released, even though I wash my hair in cool water to prevent that. My hair is wispy fine, and with these bright colours, it just might not be the right combination for me. It might work differently for you, though.
Safe to use on colour treated hair

Would I recommend it? Yes, but be cautious with coloured hair.
The website says: 100% NATURAL EXFOLIANTS! Conquer dry, dehydrated skin! Our light whipped nourishing Body Lotions are packed with moisturizing ingredients to leave your skin well nourished and smooth. Key ingredients are Squalane, Jojoba Oil, and Sunflower Oil. Comes in three varieties - Pomegranate & Acai Berry, Lavender & Rosemary, and Pink Grapefruit.
These sound amazing!
My first impressions: First off, I got the Grapefruit scented lotion, and I have to say, I adore it! Fresh and not overly sweet or fake smelling, it's everything you could ask for. Since the weather is changing, it's a perfect time to try on my elbows, knees, and heels. A very rich lotion, I put it on before bed because it's actually fast absorbing, and is deeply moisturizing without being greasy.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely.

This sounds like a miracle product!
My first impressions: Lightly scented, which I find is great when it's a product to use on your face as well as your body. I have a friend who has terribly cracked painful heels, so I gave it to her to try. She had this to say : I liked that it went on easy and didnt feel greasy. It wasnt one that I felt like I needed to put socks over (I hate sleeping with socks). It also smelled amazing compared to other foot products I've used. I think if used more consistently for a longer period of time it would have shown results, it's just not a quick fix.
Also, this product is: Cruelty-free. Vegan. Natural ingredient-driven. Gluten-free. GMO-free. Paraben-free. Phthalate-free. Made in Canada.
Would I recommend it? In a heartbeat.
The website says: A bestselling HD foundation with an ultra-lightweight texture that provides ultra flawless skin. Developed specifically for the film and TV industry's most advanced technology, Ultra HD Liquid Foundation creates a naturally flawless complexion—in and out of the spotlight. With our new range of 40 shades, you might find a better match than before.
40 shades and sheer coverage? They might just have my new foundation!
My first impressions: I got this in the shade Marble (Y225). I was a little concerned that the shade was too dark, and I was right. I'll have to do a little playing to see if I can adjust the shade or find a lighter coloured sample. As for the formula - WOW! I've never worn a foundation that felt so natural on that I forgot I was wearing foundation. Lightweight, with sheer coverage, I enjoyed this foundation very much. I tried to lighten the look with just powder - you can imagine how that went. I will definitely be pursuing a lighter shade of this for further experimentation.
Would I recommend this? Absolutely!
