Mini Haul: A Look At My CamdenGrey.Com Order

4:21 PM

After my lovely experience with the Rhassoul deep conditioning bar, I decided to purchased some more clay to see what fab mixes I could come up with on my own. I'm sooo not a "mixtress" though lol! CamdenGrey.com was recommended to me by Fleurtzy, she purchases her rhassoul from the online shop as well. I almost made it to the checkout safely, but of course my "PJ" kicked in and I started adding things to my cart that I never even heard of before, like Brazil Nut Butter and Acai Butter. The descriptions seem like they'll be yummy for my skin...I hope so lol! I also purchased some Grapeseed Oil and Hazelnut Oil in hopes of trying out TheMopTopMaven's oil cleansing method technique.(Her method also calls for Castor Oil and i already have that in the stash) We both have oily and acne prone skin types, this technique seems to have done wonders for her skin. Hopefully I'll get good results too, check back for a skin update in 2 weeks!

All together and with shipping my total came to $35.28...not bad right! Below you guys will see brief description of each of the items purchased and if you are interested in the prices just click on the highlighted names.

1/4 lb of BRAZIL NUT BUTTER: Brazil Nut Butter (Berthorlletia excelsa) is rich in fatty acids such as oleic and linoleic with small amounts of myristic and stearic acids along with phytosterol. It is also naturally rich in vitamins A, B, C and E. This nutrient-rich oil is combined with a proprietary exotic butter base to produce Brazil Nut Butter. This butter delivers the benefits of Brazil nut oil in a form that will add a luxurious skin feel, body and emollience to any anhydrous or emulsion system. May be used in cosmetics, toiletries, bar soaps, massage oils, hair care and sun care applications.

4 oz of ACAI BUTTER: The Acai berry contains 20 times the amount of the anti-oxidants found in red wine and is a unique source of anthocyanin (powerful antioxidant). The Acai berry contains a high level of calcium and potassium, essential fatty acids (Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9), vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C and polyphenols (antioxidants). Our Acai body butter is soft, easy to spread and is made with wildcrafted Acai berries. This lovely butter may be used on the skin as is or as an additive in making products such as lip balms, body butters, creams/lotions, lotion bars, etc.

1 lb of RHASSOUL CLAY: Rhassoul or Ghassoul is a mineral rich, beige clay powder that blends extremely well with water and is considered a �swelling clay� because of its great capacity to absorb liquids quickly. Its color may range from beige to yellowish/beige. This volcanic clay contains a high percentage of magnesium plus silica, potassium, calcium, iron, copper, zinc and lithium. For greasy hair or hair which lacks volume and thickness, you can make a simple hair mask by adding warm water to Rhassoul and applying it throughout your hair, rinse after 15 or 20 minutes, until the water runs clear. This mask will also give the hair shine.

8 oz of HAZELNUT OIL: Hazelnut oil Hazelnut Oil Corylus avellana Hazelnuts yield a pale amber oil with a pleasant aroma. Its composition is similar to almond oil for which it's often substituted. This is the only fixed nut oil with an astringent quality, making it beneficial for use on oily skin. It absorbs quickly and is useful as a base for oily or acne-prone skins. It may be useful against thread veins and has been used internally in cases of urinary stones, kidney colic and tapeworms.

1 lb of GRAPESEED OIL: Grapeseed Oil ( Vitis vinifera ) is an ecologically sound product that is made from the seeds of grapes after the wine is pressed. Grapeseed oil is high in vitamin E and contains essential fatty acid and linoleic acid (also known as Omega 6). It is low in saturated fat, contains natural chlorophyll and valuable antioxidants (known as proanthocyninidins) and has a good shelf life. This oil is very rich in vitamins and minerals. It's a light and penetrating oil for massage and is also used to create lotions, balms, creams and soap. The skin absorbs grapeseed oil easily; it has no perceptible odor. Since it is slightly astringent, it tightens and tones the skin; will not aggravate acne.
