Review - Winter Scents from the Gnarly Whale

I'm super excited to bring you this review today!  I have recently become a brand ambassador for the Gnarly Whale and have been given an opportunity to review some of their brand new winter scents! The Gnarly Whale shop provided me all of these products for testing purposes and review.  

I received three different products to try out.  The Hair Beach Waves in Sugar Plum, their brand new Makeup Remover in Natural and Green Tea Toner in Peppermint.  These are only just a few of the new scents they are offering for winter, but if the others are anything like these, I can tell you they are all awesome!

The peppermint toner is possibly my favorite of the three products.  I have been using their Tea Tree Green Tea toner for several months now and I absolutely love that.  I have read that peppermint can be really good for acne prone skin though because the peppermint can help dry up spots and is also calming for redness, so I was curious to try this one out.  I have to say, I love the way this feels on my face when I use it!  It warms up your skin and then gets cool, you can almost feel it working!  It's such a fresh feeling, I have made this part of my morning routine because it helps wake me up a bit and then I use my other toner at night.  The peppermint fragrance is fantastic too and the nice part is, it does fade quickly so you don't have to walk around smelling like a candy cane all day.  Love it!

Next up is the Hair Beach Waves in Sugar Plum.  Now I know you're all going, Beth, you have short hair, why would you use beach waves?  Well, I have found that this kind of product actually helps give me some volume.  I spray a little in my hair before I blow dry it and it kind of helps perk it up a bit.  Not to mention, it's nice to scent your hair a little bit!  The sugar plum scent is really nice, it's not too sweet which is nice.  I have used sugar plum scents from a few more commercial type places that I won't name and they can get almost cloying in their sweet smell.  This is light and lovely.  I just might want to grab this smell in a body spray too before the season is over!

Finally we have their newest product, Makeup Remover, in a natural scent.  I was pretty excited about this too, sometimes I feel when I wash my face with just soap that I don't always get all of the makeup off my face.  Enter this product.  It's very easy to use, you use it with a cotton pad and rinse with water and then cleanse with your regular soap after that.  I do feel like my face is getting more clean at night since I've been using this.  I like that there is no scent too, there's really no need for it to have any fragrance.  The only downside is that is not meant to be used as a eye makeup remover, so I still need to use something separate for removing that, but overall I really like it, you don't need much to take off your makeup either, so I think this bottle should last me quite awhile!

Overall I'm very impressed with all three of these products.  I am pretty sure I'll be grabbing some more the toner and makeup remover for sure, like I said, the beach waves really are more just for a little spritz in my hair than anything else, but I'd definitely recommend them to someone with longer hair too!
