I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m just all sorts of heart eyes about Root Pretty. They’re an all natural, cruelty free beauty line that I stumbled upon a few years ago. One of the things I LOVE about them the most is that they basically have samples of everything they sell, so you can try before you commit. That’s allowed me to slowly discover products I love before investing and committing to the full size products + price.
They recently had a free shipping + double Pretty Points (their rewards) on purchases, so I figured I’d try out a few new things and tell you about them!
Here’s what I picked up to try this time around. Not pictured is an aftershave for Justen. The eyeshadow was actually a thank you gift! They include a little eyeshadow sample with all of their orders, how cute is that?!
Organic Coconut Sugar Scrub
This smells so wonderful – and tastes good, too! It’s just coconut oil, cane sugar and vitamins so I had no problem licking my lips while it was on my face. A little went a long way, it was ultra scrubby and smelled so great. I’m not sure if I’ll be buying the full product because I already make my own coffee scrub, which I think is a cheaper version of this.
Beauty Sleep Serum
Last April I used up the last of a serum I really loved. When I opened and used the Root Pretty Beauty Sleep Serum, I FREAKED because it smells JUST LIKE the other brand I tried. I’ll definitely be investing in the full size of this one. A little goes a long way, and it doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy or anything. I’d be able to apply it and sleep on my pillows without worrying that it’d get all over. Loooooove this!!!
Fresh Lavender Cleanser
I just realized that I have more Root Pretty products I could include in this, but they’re sitting in my Empties box. I bought a sample of their Fresh Face Cleanser, and was disappointed in it because it was so thin. I personally like cleansers to have some scrub to it so that I feel like it’s scrubbing the dirt off. I thought this one was just a creamy version of the other one, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out it had scrub to it!! I’ll definitely be investing in this one, as well. See, it works to sell samples because then people want the full size!
Organic Peppermint Toner
I make my own witch hazel/lemon juice toner, and while I liked the tingly feel of this toner I think I’ll stick to mine for the same reasons I listed about the sugar scrub.
Eyeshadow in Paris
This eyeshadow is a nude pink that I’m not sure I’ll wear – I tend to stick with shimmery gold colors on my eyes. I’m really basic in that way. I’ll try it eventually, but it might take awhile.
These are my tried and true ride or dies, ESPECIALLY the Pretty Booster. I SWEAAARRRR by that stuff. I used to buy the Dr. Jart+ BB Cream, but this has replaced that. I love how well it blends with my skin without being greasy or too dark/light. It’s perfect.
You can’t tell, but there are two separate products in the little cases with white lids. One is a setting silk. Why I bought I setting silk I literally have no idea. I don’t even really know what setting silks are for, but you know what I love Root Pretty and they sold it and I might have read an article on Pinterest about it and decided to add it to my cart, IDK. Anyone want to help a girl out, here?
The other jar is Pearl Powder Mineral Foundation. When did I become a person who used all these things? IDK, but I’m down. I had some samples I tried and thought that I’d found the perfect one until I started feeling like the color was way too light. Luckily I was able to find a sample of a slightly different color to try, and guess what. DING DING DING, we have a winner! That’s what the little G3.5 sample is. So I decided to just mix it with the lighter color until the lighter color runs out so I don’t waste any of it. Shrug.
Since I’m apparently a makeup grown up now, I use brushes and got this brush cleaner. Which I love. It’s foamy and I get excited to clean my brushes because I love using it. It takes a lot to excite me, apparently.
So there you have it. My currently-using Root Pretty Collection. I cannot begin to say enough kind things about Root Pretty. Once I missed a 30% sale because I hadn’t paid attention to the time zone at the end of the ending time, and after I tweeted about it, they sent me my own 30% off code to use. They are a small business I plan on supporting for the rest of my life.
If you’re interested in trying some of their stuff, shop with my link and you’ll get 10% off your first $25+ purchase. Then come back here and let me know what you got so we can talk about it – I need more people to geek out with about Root Pretty! 😀
