|8 months pregnant with little man two years ago|

Let me just say with 100% certainty that while I was provided these products free of charge for this review, that I was not compensated for this post and that my opinions are entirely my own.
I LOVE these products.
From the extremely minimal and partially recycled/recyclable packaging they arrived in to the fact that they are completely, 100% biodegradable as they wash down the drain, these are great personal care products.
Let's start with the shampoo bar. I received these products in mid September and have been using them every shower since. The bar shampoo- which looks just like a bar of soap- is not even close to being halfway used at this point. Not only is it extremely long-lasting, but the bar shampoo really gives me that lather I missed while using ACV/BS washes. After washing, J.R. Liggett's bar shampoo rinses out very cleanly and didn't seem to leave any residue on my hair. A quick comb through with a wide-toothed pick after hopping out of the shower, and I'm good to go. I typically let my hair dry overnight and it lasts for 3-4 days on one wash with no grease whatsoever. The Coconut and Argan Oil shampoo bar gets an A+ on my list.
J.R. Liggett's shaving foam was the next on my list to review.
Here comes some TMI, so plug your ears.
I'll be honest. I'm not super dedicated to shaving. I mean, I shave... sometimes... Yep.
The first time I tried the shaving foam, I was pleasantly surprised. The bottle was smaller than I expected it would be, but I found that 2 pumps of foam covered each leg completely. The foam did have a slightly manly smell to it, but I didn't notice the smell lingering after I rinsed. What I did notice was that my legs felt much more moisturized after getting out of the shower than when I didn't use the shave foam. I will say though, that because I don't shave all together that often, and I have already used the entire bottle in just around two month's time, that I'll give this a B+.
The last product I tried was the Lemon Lime Spray Body Oil. The Lemon Lime Oil contains oils like almond, jojoba, and avocado, as well as aloe vera and vitamin E. The smell is really crisp and fresh and the oil covers well with a small amount. I typically apply the oil lotion after my shower at night before bed. That way, the oil moisturizes my skin overnight and I wake up with the perfectly soft but not greasy feel to my skin. The Lemon Lime Oil gets another A+ on my list, and I've been alternating this with my forever love of straight coconut oil as a lotion.
If you haven't heard of J.R. Liggett's, I highly recommend you head on over to their website and check out their products. In addition to the products I reviewed, they also make lip gloss, body wash, and even pet shampoo! Thankfully these products have helped me get through the still-hormonally-greasy pregnancy hair and skin and come out looking fresh and smelling great!

Let's ignore the fact that I just woke up and my face is already hugely swollen in the picture on the right, but comparatively, I feel really small. And, man, do these pictures show it! At this point in my current pregnancy, I am just about as big as I was in my 25 week picture from last pregnancy.
With little man's pregnancy, as evidenced in the left picture above, I was pretty much wearing tents at that point. Nothing with any stretch fit well comfortably for very long, and comfort was key in the 8th and 9th month of pregnancy.
Now, though, I can still get away with some tops that aren't even maternity wear, if they are long enough and somewhat stretchy. And I don't even feel like I'm going to ruin them! So, so different!
And everyone told me I was going to get much bigger, much sooner with a second pregnancy.
Anyone else massively smaller with a subsequent pregnancy?
