Amazing Hemp Body Care at The Body Shop
This is the time of the year, at least where I am here in California, when temperatures rise and humidity drops significantly…and the struggle with dry skin is on. I also suffer from a little bit of eczema (ok, actually sometimes a lot), and my entire life I’ve relied on prescription creams to combat it. Even with the dry skin alone, I’ve gone through bottles and bottles of lotions (and yes, even coconut oil) that all promised to cure this common malady once and for all, but to no avail, despite their high numbers of positive reviews. It’s been such a huge frustration for most of my life, and sometimes gets even more annoying when it’s time for a product review or outfit post photo shoot for either Denimology or my blog here, and my hands look dry and flaky and long story short, less than photo ready!

It wasn’t very long ago that I wasn’t much of a fragrance person…I’d only use scents for special occasions. But, as I recently wrote in a post earlier this month, there’s one brand that’s changed my mind…Harvey Prince! I posted on June 15th about their many mini rollers, which are awesome little samplers (or collectibles), of each of their best fragrances. As previously discussed, I’m subscribed to their newsletter, and every so often Harvey Prince sends out offers for these little rollers to get one pretty much free—you just pay shipping! I love their fruity, refreshing scents and best of all, all Harvey Prince fragrances are 100% cruelty free, with no animal ingredients or derivatives. They are also free of toxic chemicals such as phthalates, parabens, sulfates, benzene, GMOs or triclosan. I made up quite a collection but there was one I was still missing…their Signature scent! Harvey Prince was awesome enough to send me one to fill in this vacant spot on my bathroom shelf, and I’ve got to say it turns out to be great competition for my other two favorites, Ageless and Sincerely. Keep on reading to find a special offer I’ve included for my readers, also thanks to Harvey Prince, for a free Signature Mini Roller so you guys can all try out this marvelous brand for yourself (just pay shipping)!

In Love with Harvey Prince Mini Rollers
When I first joined Birchbox several years ago, I just figured hey, a box of awesome samples to my door every month for just $10? Awesome. However, It’s been a lot more than that. I’ve been dedicated the awesomeness of Amway’s Artistry makeup and skincare line for its high quality in terms its organic, pure and eco-friendly ingredients (no fillers) made right here in the USA, as well as the amazing work its done for my skin and the fact that it’s eliminated the need to ever worry about touching up my makeup throughout the day. But due to the obvious nature of this blog, I love discovering what else is out there! I’ll always stick to Artistry but it’s so fun to me to see what everyone else is up to.
Fragrances for me haven’t really ever been a huge thing, as I normally just saw them as one more step to remember in the morning…and I really only used them if I was to go out at night. I admit I do have and love Lady Gaga’s and Rihanna’s perfumes, but I only used them for special occasions and thought they were a bit too strong and possibly too processed for daily use. Birchbox introduced me to Harvey Prince, with my new favorite scent, Journey (now renamed Sincerely). Harvey Prince fragrances are made in the USA, are 100% cruelty free, and include zero phthalates, parabens, sulfates, benzene, propylene glycol, GMOs, or triclosan. They are also rigorously tested, adhering to the very strict rules of the International Fragrance Association for toxicity and allergins and are created using the finest essential and natural oils from around the world! You can smell the quality of these scents…each one is flirty, fresh and contain hints of all sorts of different fruits, flowers and spices. I subscribe to their newsletter, which offers a free mini roller of each of their most popular scents every now and then (with the deal being to only pay shipping). Since I don’t use a ton of perfume and I love variety, I loved this idea, and jumped at each one of these chances to have a little bit of every Harvey Prince fragrance at my disposal every morning! It’s also awesome that every purchase has included a sample of another one to try out. My favorites so far are of course Sincerely, and Ageless, which has a delicious touch of grapefruit, and I LOVE grapefruit! Check below for the others that I’ve accumulated and now use on a regular basis!
