Vitacost Review & Giveaway



As the years have progressed and gone on, I have become more health conscious. In the way I raise my children and myself. I try and go more natural wherever possible. I've finally come to the mindset that paying more for something natural is better. It's better for you and your body so it's better to spend more money. But with Vitacost you don't need to do that! Vitacost is CHEAP when it comes to most of their items and they are a lot more affordable than other natural and healthy places. 

I received the African Black Soap in Peppermint and the Sugar Whip Moisturizing Body Scrub in Tahitian Vanilla. 


 

First I tried the African Black Soap. It's great for all hair and skin types. This can be used as a shampoo and also as a body wash. I did not like it for my hair. It left my hair greasy and just felt weird. But I LOVE it as a soap. It has been amazing. It has cleared up the bit of acne on my chest in a matter of a couple weeks. It has been absolutely amazing for that. It makes my skin feel so smooth and soft and moisturized. So I' glad it's a huge bottle as it will last a while! And it's only $12.59 for a 32oz bottle!!!

The moisturizing body scrub is AMAZING as well. It smells like cupcakes, which is perfect for me since it's my favorite scent. This scrub isn't really rough when you rub it on. It has sugar pieces in it, but it's subtle and isn't harsh. This leaves your skin so soft straight from the shower and it lasts a few days as well. There's no need to use this more than 1-2 times a week. It's a 10oz container for $17.99

Vitacost has a lot of other items (A LOT). I have made a few purchases with them in the past. I bought a ton of bar soap that I got for like $.40 each or something! They have some good deals. 
Most of their items are at least 10% off retail price, but most are more like 20%+. They also run deals all the time. Right now the Out of Africa items are an extra 20% off. 

Overall: *****

*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Vitacost  in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Vitacost for allowing me to review this product  and for offering a giveaway and for offering a giveaway
