Alter Ego Body Care Products and Nail Polish – Press Samples
Hey guys! Today I have a wonderful little trio of polishes plus some handmade lotion from Alter Ego Body Care Products!. She’s recently changed her nail polish base, and I’ve gotta tell you, they are incredible formulas now! She also has really expanded her body care line. Let’s get to the polishes!
Formula/Application: Great formula and application, I had no issues!
Coverage: Near opaque in two coats
Color: Cinnamon red with a pink/gold shimmer
Finish: Jelly shimmer
Notes: I have a huge, huge crush on shimmers. I really like how the colors blend together, and that cinnamon orange red with the golden pink glow is to die for! I just have to say again how much I love her new formulas!
Formula/Application: Another great formula and application.
Coverage: Opaque in two coats
Color: Root beer brown with a golden frosty finish
Finish: Slight frost shimmer
Notes: This one has a frosty finish that will give off brush strokes, but you can avoid that by using a sponge application. I don’t mind the brush strokes and they are very minimal with this polish.
Formula/Application: The glitter is suspended well and not sticky! Very easy to get good coverage. This is one coat.
Coverage: Glitter topper
Color: Purple glitter with larger purple and green hexes
Finish: Glitter topper
Notes: I layered this over Darling Diva Polish Hating You Makes me All Warm Inside. I should have layered it over Chocolatier, because wine and chocolate go together!
I also received her Double Agent Face/Body cream to review. I didn’t use it on my face, because my face tends to go whacko with any new item, no matter how gentle the product is. Here are the ingredients:
Babassu oil, kokum butter, unrefined undeodorized shea butter, vitamin E, polysorbate 80, optiphen, stearic acid, hyrdolized silk powder, and some have essential oil.
If you don’t care for essential oils, you can opt for the natural mix. It’s not technically unscented, because shea butter has a slightly nutty scent. She sent mine with the citrus scent, and it is a nice, unoffensive scent. I’m pretty particular about smells, and I loved this one!
Please note that shea butter can be grainy after it is heated, it is a vegetable butter and this is a issue with all vegetable butters but seems to be most noticeable in shea and mango butters. It has to be heated because in its natural form it is a damp, putty like substance. My cream came in a whipped, almost mousse like state. It is finely granular, but when I apply it everything feels smooth and nicely blends into my skin. I really like it, my skin feels softer and looks more hydrated after I use it. This is a part of her EgoBoost line, which has multiple fun body care products to try.
Not only does she have a body care line, she also has developed a line for Men, a Scented perfume line, and a shampoo for our four legged kids! I need to pick some up for my Tina!
