been missing + carrots

I've been missing since I am getting slaughtered by mid-terms. Oh the joy of being a college student that hates school right now. I should be posting more soon though after this week since my mid-terms are this week pretty much.

Anywho...a while back I purchased some YES TO CARROTS products since they were BOGO 50% off at Walgreens. I've been using them ever since just to give you MY verdict. I know it's worked great for others but for me....well, just read on :]

C is Smooth
Body Moisturizing Lotion

This product unfortunately is not my favorite from the four that I bought. It actually made me more itchy...It did take away dryness, but not for a long amount of time like my H20+ Moisturizing lotion. The scent reminded me of baby powder, which was good since I thought it was going to smell weird because of the carrots. I had to constantly reapply the lotion, but I DO have pretty dry skin...*sighs. Other than that, this lotion only gets a
2.5/5 for me. I would not purchase this again.

Carrot Rich Shower Gel

Again, this is not one of my favorite products. I used this a week after I started using the lotion and it calmed down the itchyness I got from the lotion. This did not break me out and it had a sweeter smell than baby powder. It did not leave me skin feeling smooth like my Olay Body Wash that I normally use. Because this product did not make me itchy, it gets:
3/5. I would not buy this again.

C Loves Your Hair
Pampering Carrot Juice Shampoo

This product was actually gentle on my hair. It left it pretty smooth after about a week of usage. It has a nice smell to it and it hydrated my hair. It has a fun orange color to the shampoo, and I would actually purchase this again, but probably with at least a BOGO 50% off so I could get the conditioner with it. This product has a pretty small bottle compared to most shampoos...they should make a bigger bottle...this product gets a:
4/5 I would repurchase this again.

C is for Conditioner
Pampering Hair Mud Conditioner

I love this product!! It has got to be my favorite from the four I bought. This actually does deep condition and it works great with the shampoo!! It has a similar sweet scent like the shampoo and it has a pale orange color for the product. It feels really soft on my hair and I noticed it has made my scalp less itchy. I also tried this with my Garnier Fructis shampoo and that's how I know it will still work without the shampoo. This product is a bit pricey for the price so it gets:
4.5/5 I would repurchase this again!!

More updates will come as soon as school calms down!! Andy needs to send me the other pictures he took when I did a couple of fotds...Thanks for reading!!
