I really like this cowash! It has nice slip, makes the curls POP and hair clean. I don’t think it cleans very well if you applied heavy butters, or simply layering heavy products (thick leave in, thick butter etc.). The texture is creamy, not too thick and not runny. Glides through the hair very well, so detangling is a breeze! The smell, hmmmm, I don’t love it but then, I don’t really hate it. I really smell chocolate and marshmallow but then this scent comes from the background like POW lol. It’s too perfumy. I can deal but I can seriously do without the perfume scent.
I have heard so much about this Naked Baby Glazed tincture that I was super happy Vicky (Victoria, owner/creator of Cream & Coco) threw this in the package. Mann, this stuff is awesome! Super light! Makes the skin feel lush and moisturized. I used this on my cuticles every now and then and it makes it look perfect. Don’t be alarmed by the things floating in the tincture, it’s pieces of oats!
I love sniffing my toddlers when I apply it on them too. It smells like baby powder in Fresh scent with some sweetness to it. Sounds like a weird thing right? Sweet smelling baby powder lol but don’t fret! It’s a combo I never thought can work. Very light scent and super yummm.
The Lemongrass Verbana is made with:
saponified oils of coconut, soybean, olive & soy butter, shea butter, fragrance, apple cider vinegar, rice flour, lemongrass, neem, spirulina.
I have tried C&C soaps before and I love the scents she comes up with for each and the way it feels on the skin! The lather in these bars are superb. Makes you squeaky clean but no dryness because of the amount of oils and butter in it.
I wish I can tell you guys about the scents but these snack sizes came in a white paper bag and my mistake was I didn’t wrap them each in saran wrap. I just left them in there. Womp city. And I did use both and the smell is non-existent but usually her soaps smell great. But that’s okay, sometimes with folks, performance usually outshine the scent.
Gooseberry Aloe Pudding is a new product on Cream & Coco website in replace of their Curls For Days Hair pudding. I have used the older hair pudding (CFD) before and to tell you the truth, they’re pretty much the same to me. The performance is the same as well as slippage (not enough of that if you ask me).
As you can see in the pictures, there’s a difference in texture and color. GAP is more off white where as CFD is also off white but a little cloudier. They’re both thick creams, if you were to hold both jars upside down with lids off, they will not budge out of the jar. But CFD is more creamier. The scents are definitely different. CFD smells like sweet vanilla and GAP smells sweeter, like candy.
I’ve mentioned earlier that the performance is the same. Very little slip so I would have to detangle my hair in order to distribute one or both products in my hair. You guys have seen what my hair looks like using the Curls For Days Pudding.
Would I Purchase?
Yes. I haven’t come across a curl pudding that weighs my hair down. I love when my curls just hang down, minimizing the shrinkage and having it sticking straight up.
And OMG it smells like: lemongrass and coconuts.. mmmmmm
I really like this product! You can use this for the hair as a refresher and on the body as a moisturizer. I love two in one products. *grins* It’s nice as a fresher. I would spritz my curls with water and refresh with Lemongrass Verbana mixed in with some oil and it would give my curls a “wet” look for most of the day. It doesn’t make my hair dry and can play up with some products I have in my stash. I really like it as a body moisturizer as well! It’s super light, doesnt clog the pores but it’s not enough to tame the ashiness from the dry weather season. My skin is so weird though. In the warmer months, I have oily skin. Moistly on my face but I never have to apply lotion. Well, only a little on the elbows and knees. Lemongrass Verbana is perfect for the warmer months. And even though it doesnt tame the ashiness, I love what it does for my cuticles. I’m a nail polish girl and I change up the colors every day or every two days. The nail polish remover does take a toll on the cuticles but after I remove the polish, I’d wash my hands with hand soap and apply LV. This cream is like a Capt’n save a Cuticle lol. *whispers* I think Vicky should create cuticle creams, seriously.
I wish I can get more of this good stuff, but sadly,this product was limited edition in one of Cream and Coco monthly hot boxes and for the holiday VIP sale. So yeah, she’s no longer selling it but you can ask Vicky if she has any products in stock that is close to or that’s in the works. Doesn’t hurt to ask, right? :]
