I'm back with another Jiyubox subscription box mini review because I am a consistent blogger until I decide to get a job. Which won't be for a while if I'm being honest. SO HERE WE ARE. Should I turn being unemployed into a regular topic here on the blog? Would it work? (Pun intended.) Anyhow, getting a bit off topic here so lets go back to the subscription box.
The theme for this season is all things cozy, perfect for fall and featuring all PNW based brands!
If you haven't read my first Jiyubox review yet you can read it here. Before we delve in, please know that this box was gifted to me but all thoughts and opinions are my own! I am also under no obligation to post in exchange for product but I have always loved to share natural beauty brands.
I don't know about you, but I am a particularly sweaty human. I am someone who runs warm and I often joke that if I'm ever cold everyone else is already dead. That being said, I am not a really a smelly person (or maybe I am and no one has the heart to tell me) so I use to use whatever deodorant was on sale at the drugstore. A few years ago I made the switch to natural deodorant and as my friends can attest to, I am ridiculously passionate about convincing everyone to use natural deodorant.
Let me be the first person to say that I am no sunscreen expert. Anyone who knows me IRL will be the first to tell you that I always forget/miss a spot when it comes to applying sunscreen. I currently have a very dark tan line on my back at that spot that you can't reach on your own. I do this every summer so trust me when I say, wear sunscreen. Getting crispy and exposing your skin to harmful UV rays is not a nice feeling.
A lot of the time a lot of people think the higher the SPF, the better the sunscreen but what about the ingredients a sunscreen is made up of? Brands that are more "natural" or mineral based are generally considered less harmful however can they be as strong as chemical sunscreens? What is the difference between the two anyways?
It seems long overdue for Lululemon to introduce selfcare to their athleisure empire so when they launched 4 products last week I promptly headed to one of their locations to check it out. The collection includes a lip balm, dry shampoo, an aerosol spray deodorant and a moisturizer.
Lululemon is one of those brands people love to hate on and I will be the first to admit that I am not always drinking the Lululemonade due to controversial ownership and marketing tactics, however I didn't want to just jump on the bandwagon and assume that the products weren't worth the cost without actually trying them.
When I posted a poll on Instagram asking if people would be interested in a review I received dozens of messages that echoed sentiments of hating on Lululemon. "Destroy them" and "UGH, fuck Lululemon" are examples of messages I got. As polarizing as it may be, I had to try to try it for myself to decide. Let me preface this by saying that this line is not what I would call budget friendly at all. This review is solely to review the products and talk about the effectiveness.
Plus they're selling their products in Sephora and this is available at some fitness studios - say what you will about Lululemon, being sold at Sephora is a BFD.
First things first; body hair is natural on all genders. So if you’re here to read about me champion for getting rid of all of it or none of it you’ll have to look elsewhere. Whether you want to be hairless, hairy or somewhere in between is frankly no ones’ business other than your own and you should do whatever you prefer. Not what society, your partner, or that guy you check to see if he’s watching your Instagram stories prefers, but what you prefer.
I won’t lie, I was a little disheartened that so many female friends seemed confused to hear that I’ve never gotten a wax down there before. They were either grossed out, confused as to what I do in the summer (nothing, the answer is that I do nothing differently), or asked me what men thought of it. When it comes to men, I genuinely think they do not give two fucks to be honest. Also if you get to see my vagina and you have a problem with women having the natural condition that is body hair then you can promptly go fist yourself because my vagina is a utopia, with or without hair, and you would be BLESSED to have the pleasure of viewing.
Frankly I don’t really care if you disagree. You can write your rebuttal on your own blog. This is my blog I get to say whatever the fuck I want.
