Switch 2 Pure April 2019 Review
There’s a small card included with a cute design on one side and a handwritten note on the other.
ECO Body Argan Hair Oil, 3.2 oz. – Retail Value $16.00
Sometimes I can’t remember something I did last week but I have the uncanny ability to never forget a subscription box product! This Australian argan hair oil is an item I received in Switch 2 Pure back in September of last year. Now, there was a moment between then and now that I had to start a new subscription for this box, so I will chalk this duplicate up to that. Sadly, my thin hair doesn’t like hair oils AT ALL so I turned to my fellow reviewer, Megan, to help me out since she has a luscious mane (you may recall she did this for me before). She reported back saying it’s lightweight and to only use this on your ends (to prevent greasy hair) and help frizz. The scent is herb-heavy with rosemary (dreamy) being the star and lavender creeping in second. The packaging mentions that this could be used as a scalp mask by leaving on for 20+ minutes and Megan agrees that it can also be used on cuticles and body as well. That’d be a great alternative for me except that I already have so many body oils on hand!
OL-Y Face Cream, 2.5 oz. – Retail Value $55.00
This face cream is the consistency of super whipped buttercream frosting and packed full of rich oils like sweet almond, avocado, rosehip, lavender, hemp seed, and jojoba just to name a few. The first time I used it- I scooped out waaay too much but immediately learned that just a small dollop is plenty to coat your entire face. The lavender is the most prominent, fragrance-wise which I of course love. The cream is ultra light but really penetrates the skin and quickly alleviates any dryness leaving a slightly greasy feel that slowly soaks in. Compared to the amount needed with each application, this jar is HUGE and is bound to last quite some time.
Lauren B. Nail Polish in PCH, 0.50 oz. – Retail Value $18.00
I can always count on some Lauren B. polish (like last month’s lavender color) in Switch 2 Pure and this month sends a deep blue hue. You may have heard me regret receiving polish in sub boxes since I am a gel mani lady these days, but the recent break in cold has reminded me that sandal weather is afoot. That means this polish can grace my toes since I don’t bother with gel there. The photo above shows the polish with ONE coat only so you can tell the pigment and coverage is not messing around. As always, Lauren B is listed on the bottle as being free of the five worst chemicals commonly found in polish (though it seems they’ve gone further now to become 7-free).
Switch 2 Pure Probiotic Deodorant, 2.3 oz. – Retail Value $20.00
Bring on the natural deodorants! I’ve tried so many in my beauty journey in the past 6+ months and here is yet another new one from Switch 2 Pure themselves that goes a step further to being probiotic. After some quick research, it seems like the difference between “probiotic” and simple “natural” deodorants are the healthy bacteria included (in this case, L. Rhamnosus) to help fight odor. This rose and ylang-ylang scented deodorant stick comes with pretty pink and white packaging and is free of both aluminum (which is what causes those nasty yellow stains on shirts) and baking soda. The scent is fresh and light and the stick itself is powdery yet a little dry. It doesn’t glide on as well as some of the solid gels I’ve tried but I got it applied under my arms without a hitch. I’ve fully switched from aluminum-based antiperspirants and deodorants, so I feel like my body has properly acclimated to natural formulas and this one works well at keeping me smelling nice.
Skiin Studio Soothing & Calming Bio Cellulose Signature Sheet Mask – Retail Value $8.00
I should be a little bummed to get this mask again since I just received the exact same one last month but… I LOVE THIS MASK so I’m not going to cause a stink about it. The jelly sheet, the black pepper smell, the way it makes my skin feel afterward! I just love everything about this mask and now I don’t have to go out of my way to purchase another one. I’ll keep it stowed away for a relaxing evening…
Verdict: Switch 2 Pure delighted me this month with a simple five items that have a total retail of value $117.00. I love the deodorant and sheet mask and am surprised at how long the face cream will last me. The nail polish and hair oil weren’t super useable for me but I can pass them on to friends that will love them.
