Perfectly Posh Review


So today I'm back with another review.  This time I'm going to be reviewing a whole bunch of different products from the skincare brand, Perfectly Posh. If you've never heard of them before, don't feel bad. I had never even once heard of them either until about a month ago. Here's a bit of information to get you started: Perfectly Posh is a skincare brand that sells naturally-based pampering products. All of their products are paraben free, sulfate free, cruelty free and contain no fillers. They also have plenty of vegan products as well. Oh and if you're anything like me, you'll be happy to know that everything they sell is under $25!  So basically I found out about them while I was browsing around Instagram. I seen a post saying that their looking for people to test and review their products so of course I was up for it! I left my email and a Perfectly Posh representative named Rachel Whitman contacted me via email a few days later. She asked me a few questions such as what skin concerns do I have? What fragrance do I like/dislike etc. I told her that I wasn't picky, and that the only skin concern I have is oily/acne prone skin. She told me she'd send me some samples that specifically target my concerns as well as some other ones. Shortly after that I received my samples in the mail! Now that I've had enough time to test (almost) all of them, I'm ready to let you guys know my thoughts.

Let's get to the reviews!

All the samples I received! I was actually really surprised by how many she sent!

Little sachet she included full of mini spatulas to pick up the products.

I'm going to start the reviews with what turned out to be my favorite sample, The D-Tox Body Mud Stripper. This product,according to Perfectly Posh, is "an aggressive detoxifying deep-cleansing body mud mask". It is supposed to absorb and remove free radicals and toxins from your skin, and with continued use supports cleaner, brighter skin with fewer blackheads and blemishes. The first thing I noticed about this product is that it smells wonderful. I imagined it might have this awful mud smell or something, but it actually smells like vanilla cupcake . Dora and I tested this product out together, using it as a mud mask for our faces. Note: It is safe to use on your face, but is not recommended for people with sensitive skin. We wet our face the tiniest bit, and then applied the mud to our faces. After a couple of minutes Dora and I felt a slight burning sensation , but it wasn't that bad so well pushed through, and after about 3 or 4 minutes it was gone. We kept the mask on for 15 minutes total(the maximum time recommded) until it felt really tight and hard, like most face masks do. After that I simply rinsed it off like I was washing my face. I'll admit it does take a bit more effort though, since the mask is a bit thick. Afterwards I did not see a noticeable difference in the way my skin looked. But the way my skin felt, was incredible. My skin felt so baby soft and smooth. I just kept touching my face, it was so soft! Dora was less impressed. She has very sensitive skin and decided to ignore their warning, so even though her skin felt really soft as well afterwards she says it isn't worth the burning. Plus weirdly enough, when she rinsed it off we noticed this weird cut/burn looking mark under her eye that wasn't their before. When she touched it she said it felt like it was on fire! So there you go, evidence that this product should really not be used on sensitive skin! However if you're like me, and your skin isn't super sensitive I think it's a wonderful face mask, it makes your skin super soft, and I love that it uses natural ingredients and is completely vegan!

Next up the body butters! I received three scents: Brazilian Bombshell, Fresh, Creamy Milk, and Creamy Coconut Cocktail. Brazilian Bombshell was probably my favorite scent, it has a very bright and fruity smell, like tropical fruits. I imagined Fresh, Creamy Coconut would be my favorite because I love coconut scented stuff, however the name was very misleading, because it doesn't even smell like coconuts to me! Don't get my wrong though it still smells nice, just not very coconutty. Fresh, Creamy milk has a nice clean smell to it. It's very simple, not at all fruity like the others.Honestly none of the scents drove me wild or anything but the formula is really nice. It's not incredibly thick, the way some body butters are. It's consistency is only a little thicker than a body lotion. Once you  rub it in it sinks into your skin very quickly and does not feel oily or greasy whatsoever. I wish there had been a scent I loved because the formula is absolutely amazing!

These were some of the products I have not got a chance to test out yet so I can't give you guys a complete review yet! However I will tell you that they both smell amazing. The argan oil hair serum smells divine! I don't know how to describe the smell, but it's amazing and I want my hair to smell like it all the time. The tea tree + neem  deep clean hair and scalp mask has a very pepperminty smell. I know that's not everyone's thing, but personally I love minty scented things.I'm excited to try these products and will probably let you know what I think about them on my Instagram whenever I get the chance or just make an update right here on this post. P.S. If anyone's already tried these products, let me know in the comments!

I'm going to be honest I was a little underwhelmed by these hand creams. The formula isn't that amazing, and it's not very different from a B&BW lotion or many other lotions out on the market. They sink in quick and aren't greasy, and their moderately moisturizing. So I'm definitely not saying their bad lotions, they work just fine. Once again, as with the body butters, the scents just weren't that great. I'll start with "Down with the dirty" it smells like it should be a men's lotion so I'm a bit confused about that, great for your dad or your bf I suppose! Next "Berrly Behaving" I think this was probably the best of the bunch. It smells like berries, but not like that overwhelmingly artificial berry smell. "Sassyooma" is very citrusy smelling one. I smelled like grapefruits, oranges, and lemons when I tested this one out. It's nice but can be a little overwhelming. Lastly "Snarky", idk how to describe it guys, I just don't like it at all.  I feel like the problem just might be that a lot of these scents are aimed at women older than me. I think I'll check back in ten years an pick up a few.

I'm a huge fan of body scrubs so of course when I seen these I knew I had to try them out first! I tried "Sugar Fix" first which is a sugar based scrub (obviously) it has a light, floral smell to it which is okay. The scent doesn't linger too long anyway so I don't care if it's not exactly Chanel N°5. It's a fabulous scrub! It's a very thick scrub, which I happen to love, and the sugar crystals are quite large. I love the formula, it really feels like it's working when I use it, and my skin feels noticeably softer and smoother after I use it. I tried "The Daily Grind" next which is a sugar, salt, and coffee grounds body scrub. I can't get enough of this product, it's amazing. I love the smell of coffee brewing in the morning and whenever I use this it's like the exact same thing in my bathroom. Just like with "Sugar Fix" my skin feels great after using it. It also aides in the prevention of cellulite, so if anyone is looking for that this might be your fix.

This product called "The Caffeinator" is a moisturizing shea butter stick infused with tigntening and brightening caffeine to reduce puffiness and fade dark circles. It is also said to lighten uneven skin overtime, reduce inflammation, reduce cellulite and more. They say to apply anywhere, but of course I figured this would be perfect for under my eyes. Let me just say I failed the first time. I realize now, that the key to using this product is using the teensiest amount. The first time I used it I applied a blob of it underneath both of my eyes and they were so greasy and oily afterwards. Later on I looked at the card for this product and realized it comes in a stick form, like the tubes lip balms come in, and with that in mind I knew I had made the mistake of putting on way too much. The next time I tried it I only applied a tiny bit, like the amount you would get gliding the balm over your skin.My skin wasn't super greasy this time but I didn't see a big difference. I still had dark circles, and my eyes were still puffy. However I know that products like this take time to work, and don't just make a difference instantaneously. That being said I can't say for sure if it works or not, because I would have to try it over a longer period of time to know for sure. However I think it would be worth trying as it serves a lot of different purposes and it's pretty inexpensive. Bonus: it smells like lemonade!

"Pink Putty" is an intense repair pink peppermint hydrating foot mask. This was another product that I haven't got the chance to try out yet. The only thing I can say about it at the moment is that it smells like candycanes lol. I'll either update this post with my review whenever I try it out or share my thoughts on Instagram!

I also received two more samples, but sadly misplaced them! "Moisturize 911 " which is a moisturizer for your face and "Complexion Perfection" which is a gentle, everyday face wash. If I ever find them, I will make sure to update this post with my thoughts on them!

If you guys feel like you'd like to try out any of these products you can request some free samples from Rachel. She's really nice and will work with you to make sure you receive products that are just right for you! You can email her at if you're interested!

  1. Thank you so much for your reviews, Bianca! I can't believe you didn't like Lil Snarky!! lol People go crazy over it! ;) But that's totally why I love getting this feedback.

    I'm sorry your friend had a bad reaction to the Stripper. Sometimes a thinner application or even just over the t-zone works better. Some redness and tingling is normal, but even if you don't have sensitive skin, it's always important to moisturize after a face mask like that!

    Also -- since you liked the formula of the body butter but didn't like the fragrances I sent, let me know if you'd like testers of the others! Or hand creams, or scrubs, etc. We have sooo many options! I totally feel you. I have them all to give as samples, but I stick to only a few of the fragrances for myself! :)

    Thanks again!
