Vitacost Review and $25 Gift Card Giveaway – ends 5/23


Vitacost contacted me awhile ago to do a review of some of their products of my choice, in exchange for an honest review, and of course a giveaway for my readers. I jumped at the chance. I had NO idea that Vitacost sold more than just vitamins though! They sell a LOT of different products, and they have a HUGE organic selection, which is great!


Here are the products I picked and reviewed:


1- Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo 8oz – $3.97 on sale right now!
This is wheat and gluten free, 100% Vegan, and works AWESOME for dry hair. My hair is pretty much always dry. I have been using this for almost a week now and it works great!


2- Desert Essence Coconut Conditioner 8oz – $5.09 Vitacost Price
This pairs with the shampoo above and works great. I have no complaints, it makes my hair feel clean and soft with no residue.


3- Sugar Whip Cupcake Moisturizing Body Scrub by Primal Elements 10oz – $17.99 Vitacost Price
Hands down, this is my new favorite shower/bath product. This is a wonderful exfoliant for my skin and it smells incredible. It’s in a cute ice cream type container and you just use your hand to scoop out a bit. I used it on my face, arms, and legs and it made them super smooth. I wish it was edible…it sure smells like it is!


4- Vitacost Energy Formula – $14.99 for 120 capsules
This is a premium formula dietary supplement with herb extracts. It’s additive free and does not give you the jitters like most other products. Make sure you take as directed, if you don’t you will become nauseous…I speak from experience.


5- Aura Cacia Pure Essential Lavender Oil .5oz – $5.83
I got this to try as my 4 year old has been having trouble sleeping, it seems to be working. I just put a little on her wrists about an hour before bed and a little dab on her neck.  From the reviews on their site everyone seems to love it. It’s a great price too.


6- Yes to Inc Cucumber Wipes 30 pack – $5.99
Mine are almost gone already. I use a few a day on my face. They are very soothing and they are a great makeup remover. They are hypoallergenic and 98% natural. They smell great too!

I loved all the Vitacost products, they had fast shipping too. I will definitely be ordering from them again. If you click HERE you can get a coupon code for $10 off your order!
