Products I wanted to try in 2009

You may (or may not) remember that a year ago I had
a list of 12 products I wanted to try in 2009. Did I try them? More information below.

- Dollop Hair Pomade 70g $27.50 – I bought this in January or February, and still have some left. A little goes a long way!
- Holistic Hair Sea Spray 250ml $23 – This is good for spraying into hair before blow-drying to give some definition.
- SHE Australia Face Serum $24.95 (I think) – Have not tried this, and I happy with the serum I’m using at the moment (Pacifica Organics), so I probably won’t try this anytime soon.
- Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil 100ml $30 – I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m still keen to.
- SHE Australia Dusting Powder $12.95 – I haven’t tried this, but I’ve bought so many mineral eye shadows in the last year, that it might be time to stop buying them for the time being. Technically, this isn’t an eye shadow, but that’s probably what I’d use it for.
- Sparitual Nail Polish $29 – I’ve got this in Up at Noon (bright pink) and Gold Digger (gold), both very nice.
- Origins Smileage Plus Lip Tint $32 – Very nice, but unfortunately it has now been discontinued. I had it in Sugar Cane (light pink) and Off-Beet (dark browny-red).
- Natures Gate Organics Advanced Care Upper Tanagement Self-Tanning Creme $25 – I haven’t tried this, and I’m still keen to, but I can’t find it anywhere (it used to be available at Health 2000 in Lower Hutt).
- Crabtree & Evelyn Naturals Cocoa Butter & Cardamom Lip Balm - SPF 8 15g $15 – The Crabtree & Evelyn store in Wellington sold out of this pretty quickly (and they don’t have any of the Naturals range anymore – was it limited edition?), but I picked this up at David Jones in Brisbane. It's a nice bronzey colour with some subtle gold shimmer, and nice taste, although perhaps a bit too sweet.
- Primal Earth Organic Shave Gel 175ml $8.99 – Great! I have used the Extra Sensitive one, which is free from artificial colour and fragrance. It’s also available in Aloe Hydrate and Menthol Cool. It is designed for men, but there’s no reason why women can’t use it!
- Latential Latentialme Eau De Toilette $99.95 – I bought this as a Christmas present for myself with money from my parents and grandparents. I ordered it off the Viola Organics website, because Commonsense Organics no longer stock it. It’s lovely – a spicy floral that is a great scent for summer.
- Lafe’s Natural & Organic Deodorant Stick 71g $15.99 – I haven’t tried it yet, but I would still like to.
