A bubble bath/body wash combo always is a risky choice. If something is meant to be used to wash your body I have trouble seeing how it could double as something to help you relax as you soak in it. That was why I was skeptical when trying Sheamoisture Superfruit body wash. Unfortunately, my skepticism was warranted, and I did not enjoy the feeling I was left with getting out of the tub.

Shea moisture is not a brand I was familiar with before trying this body wash/bubble bath combo. Putting the bubble bath in the tub was fine. It didn’t smell awful and was not too overwhelming. The bubbles were a pleasant addition to the bath atmosphere. In fact, they actually provided a nice layer of extra moisture while in the tub.

Unfortunately, even though I found some enjoyment while in the tub, it did not leave me feeling terribly clean upon finishing my bath. Everyone knows that amazing just out of the shower, squeaky clean feeling. That was not the case with this body wash/bubble bath. I did not have that amazing feeling after using shea moisture Superfruit body wash. I by no means felt as though I was still caked in dirt and sweat, but I definitely did not feel that I was perfectly clean, either. I was left disappointed and wishing that I had used my everyday body wash.

On top of not feeling as clean as I had wanted, I also felt like I smelled as if I just had walked out of a candy store. The smell was simply too sweet. On the bottle they claim to have used mango butter and Green coffee bean extract, but based on the smell in my bathroom, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a spoonful of sugar in every ounce.

In my ever so humble opinion, Sheamoisture Superfruit body wash is not worth the money saved to combine the body wash and bubble bath in one product; Splurge and buy one of each. it is well worth the money. Not only will you feel cleaner, but you will also have two delightful scents that compliment each other instead of just one extremely sweet mango send lingering on your skin.

I am a huge fan of lipstick. You will be hard-pressed to find someone who could rival my love for lipsticks… especially matte lipsticks. That being said, I am also one of the pickiest lipstick users on the planet. I will only wear certain brands of lipsticks for a number of reasons ranging from my easily irritable skin to my need for sufficient moisture.

Tarte has been one of my go-to lip brands for years. Their lip tints are some of my favorite products to use on a daily basis. Their newest lip product is the Aqualillies For Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12 Hour Lipstick. Timeless- the bright coral color that the lipstick comes in- is a fairly versatile color. It would look good on a number of different skintones. It has more pink undertones than orange, which is why it has the potential to look great on everyone. As far as the feel of the lipstick goes, it is truly magnificent. I do not feel like I am missing the moisture I could get with chapstick. It feels very silky and smooth the entire time it is on. It is quite unlike many lipsticks in that it provides moisture instead of sucking your lips completely dry. Many lipsticks do just that and eventually crumble leaving your lips feeling incredibly dry at the end of the day.

The issue I had was with the claim that it would last for 12 hours. It did not. It lasted for about four hours before I had to reapply. The color was faded at three hours, and it was starting to leave the ever dreaded ring around the edges of the lips at just over four hours. After reapplying, it went back to being bright and vivacious.

Overall Aqualillies For Tarte Glamazon is a good product. Is it as good as their lip tints? No, it isn’t. However, it does provide significantly more color than the tints. It all depends on what you are looking for in your lipwear for the day.
