Photo Review: Naturalista Cosmetics Juicy Leave In Conditioner

in photo review, product review

Naturalista Cosmetics had a BOGO sale in mid August and I bit the bait.  The items were purchased on Aug 19th and were received today (20 days from purchase to receipt).  I purchased two Juicy Leave in Conditioners from this newly raved about natural hair care line.

I was able to purchase these items for free using Swagbucks.  Yes, I am still surfing to earn $$ ! Click here to find out how you can earn cash too! Support your product junkie habit! 🙂

Notice one jar has slightly more product than the other. In both jars, there was room for additional product.  The jars were not completely filled in my opinion.

In the Virgin Islands we make a cake called Vienna Cake. The base of this cake is whipped egg white/meringue with additional ingredients folded in.  The texture and scent of the Juicy Leave in Conditioner is extremely similar to the batter of a Vienna Cake.

Just with body heat alone, the product melted a little.

There’s definitely room left in those jars! Cant wait to see your full review.

maybe they were filled to the top and since their whipped, they could have melted a bit a settled. Let’s give them the benefit of the doubt. there is a ring around both jars indicating that they could have once been filled to the top. If body heat melted them… then surely these hot temperatures could have too….

I have not tried the products though. this is my first time hearing about them. they look good. 🙂

Hi Juceefroot! The ring you are noticing is because the product is mobile and creamy. If you tip it over, it can pour out, so that is a simple explanation as to how there is a ring around the neck of the product. Also, I’ve seen other pictured reviews earlier in the summer where someone received a product that melted due to the heat. As a result of the melting, customers received their product in the liquid form. The product never re-solidified until placed in the refrigerator. The volume of the product remained similar to what it was after it melted. The weather on the east coat at this time is pretty cool. I don’t foresee butters melting when I consider the temperature between the time this was mailed to me and today (when I received it). Hope that helps. Thanks for commenting.

\Hey, did you buy one juicy and get on free. I was told that the BOGO sale did not include the 8oz juicies.

I did buy one 8.oz Juicy and got the other free. There actually were no other sizes available at the time I purchased.

Hi I purchased this about a month ago and mine was filled to the top. The consistancy of mine was very soild, not liquidity at all. Maybe because she was making so many of them the product changed. IDK just a thought. I have used it, and it is ok. Have you used yours yet?

westNDNbeauty September 10, 2011 at 1:10 pm

Filled to the top you say? Wow! No I haven’t used it yet. I’m still flabbergasted by the confirmation that I was jibbed!

lol… that’s not funny. I’m really just stopping by to say: thanks for turning me on to the swagbucks, girl! 🙂 i started my account today. I can’t WAIT to start winning stuff!

oh! and can you only purchase what’s at the swag store? because I didn’t see anything like natural hair products there… is that because they change the store a lot?

I purchase paypal or amazon giftcards from the swag store. Those giftcards are used to purchase other items I desire. Have you checked out my latest YouTube video? That might help you understand better.

uh oo. LOL yes! and it did not look like yours either. I tried to post a picture of mines but I could not. Visit my blog at I have the picture there.
