Natural-ish Haul

   A month or so ago a huge Mrs. Greens market opened down the street from me.  Mrs. Greens is very similar to a Whole Foods.  When I first went in I didn't expect a big health and beauty section, but I was pleasantly surprised.  They had a nice variety of skincare products, hair care, makeup and health and wellness items.  Their prices are quite high, but last weekend the whole store was 10% off and I decided to pick up a few products that I would need soon.

  As I've written a few times I've been trying to incorporate more natural products into my beauty routine.  Now don't get me wrong, I am not abandoning my Wet and Wild or drugstore loves, but I figure if I could have a large majority of my personal care items being natural, I'm well off!

I have been on the hunt for a yummy and natural protein powder to add into my smoothies.  I can't drink protein powder with just water and milk, I seriously don't know how people do it!  These little sample packs are a great way to try out the taste of the powders without buying the huge container.  I got the echolocate powder, the tropical fruit and a flavorless nutritional shake.

I also stocked up on some skin care and hair care items that I would be running out of shortly.

The four mini bottles are from Giovanni and came from the Giovanni Flight Attendant Kit in Tea Tree Oil.  The kit came with a shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion.  I'm glad I get to try out mini size of these products to see if I like them enough to purchase full size products.

Next is my Alba Botanica Hawaiian Moisture Cream with Jasmine and Vitamin E.  I'm running out of my day cream so I picked up this little guy to give it a try.  I've never tried any Alba Botanica products, but I've always heard good things about this brand and it's one of the most affordable natural brands so I'm hoping I like this.

I'm running low on my Michael Todd scrub so I picked up this Alba Botanica Even Advanced Sea Algae Enzyme Scrub.  I love the packaging on this scrub and I've read very good things about the Even Advanced line.

I picked up the night cream from the Even Advanced line which states to reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolorations in 2 weeks.  That's a pretty big claim, but I'm excited to see if it works!

Have you tried any natural products or brands lately?  I'm looking to test out a few natural brands to find some products that really work for me!

Let me know how those protein shakes are. I don't know how people drink them alone either..gross!! I need to add fruit or I'm not going to drink it.

I've been using Thayers Witch Hazel in Lavender (alcohol free) in the mornings that Kaley wakes up when I do and I don't have time to actually wash my face. It removes that layer of gross from the night before without drying out my face.
