Me and The Girls Review
Me and The Girls Review
If you’re new to “cupuacu” in skincare, I hope you’ll appreciate my “Me and The Girls Review”! ME & THE GIRLS products are just that, formulas that always contain luxurious- amazonian cupuacu butter OR seed oil. When I was given the chance to try their entire line, you can bet I jumped all over it!
First though, understanding why “Me and The Girls” products work so well, also means understanding their main ingredient: CUPUACU!
Cupuacu Seed Butter is a skin superfood. Often used as a key ingredient in anti-aging products, it’s also an amazing emollient and moisturizer. Don’t worry about your skin type either, it’s great on all: oily, dry, acne prone, sensitive etc…!
Benefits of Cupuacu Seed Butter
Why would “Me and The Girls” love this butter so much (enough to base an entire line on it)?
What to Expect from “Me and The Girls”
Doing a “Me and The Girls Review” is the reason why I blog. Supporting this wild-crafted, Pennsylvania based company is something I take to heart. Their skin products go beyond industry standards- they truly understand non-toxic, anti-aging, aromatherapy beauty…
Always made with love, in small batches. 98.99% of the ingredients used by Me & The Girls is certified organic. Having it on hand was so beneficial for my entire family, not only my aging skin.
($40USD – 1oz. dropper bottle ) Trying Me & The Girls “MOON SERUM” was worth every application. First, the pretty smell… Kinda like my grandma’s delicious brown sugar oatmeal (yummy, for real!) Essentially, it’s the natural scent of cupuacu oil mixed with sweet vanilla. Secondly, it goes on skin like butter. Absorbing way faster than most serums I’ve tested.
For that reason, I love using Moon Serum on no make-up days. It leaves no oily face trace and soaks-in instantly.
Obviously, I was a lush for this stuff from the moment I opened it (FAV!)…
($42USD – 1.5oz tube) Second fav: the BAR BELEZA (a multi-use lotion in a twist-up tube.) Use it as a cleanser, a moisturizer, or night lotion- it’s the tube that just keeps giving!
For anyone who hasn’t tried a cupuacu butter product, this is a great start. You’ll get all the benefits of the butter, plus you can use it for so many different things (I also used my Bar Beleza as a hand lotion, belly butter, hair moisturizer & more…)
MOON Anti-Aging Night Facial Moisturizer
($40USD – 1oz. glass amber jar) Another gem in my Me and The Girls Review lot! Moon Anti-Aging Night Facial Moisturizer – it’s vitamin-E rich, contains pure butters, and only vanilla essential oil for scenting again (smells similar to their face lotion…) Feels like an instant moisturizing miracle (+ my skin is super dry & hard to please.)
Used it morning and night on my face/neck. Adored the little scoop it came with too. Since MOON Anti-Aging Night Facial Moisturizer is a butter-based product (shea butter, cupuacu butter & coconut oil…) it’s temperature sensitive (melts when heated, gets hard when cooled) Considering it’s pre-winter season here mine was pretty firm. But oh man, does it melt well when it hits skin- instantly, turning into – what I’d call a soft, rich, face serum.
Great on sun-damaged skin, this is the ultimate, superior moisturizer out of the Me and The Girls’ product line. Probably the richest most luxurious, high-end too.
“Me and The Girls” SCRUBS – 3 DIFFERENT SCRUBS
- Lavandula Revive Foot Scrub ($26USD – 3oz amber jar)
- Limonum Sugar Body Scrub VOTED BEST NEW BEAUTY PRODUCT! ($32USD – 8oz glass amber jar)
- Exfoliator Sugar Lip Scrub ($18USD – 20g jar)
(Sugarcane is the ingredient used to exfoliate in all 3 of these moisturizing scrubs)
SUGAR LIP SCRUB
New to “Me and The Girls” line is a Sugar Lip Scrub – it was a joy on my dry, cracked winter lips. Taste-wise, I’d compare it to a nutty/vanilla coffee. Not only does it exfoliate, it made my lips soft again.
Often we forget to pamper our pouts, using a quick sugar lip scrub only a few times a weeks works wonders. Appreciated the texture, this lip scrub is super moisturizing + instantly gratifying.
Didn’t hurt I was also given a few “Me and The Girls” chapsticks (LIP MOISTURIZER sticks $7USD) to use after the lip scrub. Vegans rejoice, this minty, reviving chapstick is beeswax free too. Candelilla wax is used instead.
REVIVE FOOT SCRUB
Wow, this foot scrub smells amazing – peppermint/spearmint! Get your freshest feet by buffing this stuff on 2 to 3 times a week.
Also appreciate the warnings from Me and The Girls (getting this stuff on surfaces makes them slippery.) Take heed, I used it just before stepping into the shower to avoid making a mess and tripping everywhere.
Revive Foot Scrub is strong and seals into skin all the rich moisture contained within. Rich in peppermint/lavender and thick with butter it’s 5 stars on feet. Quoting “Me and The Girls”… if your goal is getting “beach, flip-flop ready feet”, this is the cream for you. Found myself using this stuff on my feet after a hard day of work too, it’s a nice little “at-home-spa” touch.
Thinking of it all, “Me and The Girls” also crafted a LAVANDULA FOOT SOFTENING CREME ($26USD – 1.5oz amber jar)
SUGAR BODY SCRUB
Last but not least, the award-winning SUGAR BODY SCRUB! Yup, my TOP FAV out of the 3 scrubs! Smelling this stuff alone makes you happy, bright citrus essential oils!
Intoxicating and super creamy to apply. It instantly hydrates skin back to smooth – every time. Also, be sure to really mix the scrub before applying. My sugar and butter layer were separated (here’s a pic to make sense of it…)
(Avoid getting it on your face.) Apply it, in circular motion all over your skin and rinse-off (pat dry.)
Usually not a huge scrub fan- SUGAR BODY SCRUB alone made me a believer again. Adored the bamboo spatula for application, makes it super easy to get the thick butter scrub out.
Pure Products “Me and The Girls Review”
Trying to work with pure, organic (practically edible) skincare is a hard skill to master. Heck, making it smell good naturally alone is a real trick.
Personally, I’ve tried making lotion with cupuacu butter and failed. A pain to work with, it’s really dense, has a heavy smell and the recommended usage is 2 to 5% in DIY recipes…
Somehow, “ME & THE GIRLS” make working with cupuacu butter/oil look like a day at the beach. Including getting their products to smell amazing, naturally and toxic-free (minty, citrus’y, nutty…)
Their products last too – showing a minimum shelf life of +1 year.
Mastering Cupuacu Butter
Zeroing in on cupuacu was a clever move. Makes “MeAndTheGirls.com” standout in the skincare pack. Faced with hoards of new organic skincare companies, I prefer to zone in on the ones mastering one single ingredient (i.e: oil or butter…) Exactly what “Me and The Girls” have done with cupuacu butter.
Flexible products created for health-minded skin freaks (like myself) or anyone who’s a rich butter lush. After a few uses, you’ll understand why I’m preaching it’s a skin thrill!
With Christmas also around the corner, I’ve been eyeing this great family gift! An “8-piece” Luxury Trial Travel Set ($65USD)!
