Cynthia from Alter Ego has both a polish and a soap for the upcoming Polish Pickup. Both named Daffodils Peek Through The Leaves. Both are green, the soap is more neon with a bright yellow swirled in while the polish is a darker green with gold flakes.
Alter Ego Daffodils Peek Through The Leaves Soap Review
Daffodils Peek Through The Leaves soap is made with unrefined shea butter, kokum butter, babbassu oil, castor oil. Once it is cooked, stirred and pancake batter like, it is enriched with vitamin # oil 70,000IU. Then a quick stir to get it evenly mixed before pouring into the mold. Each piece will have a unique swirl design as they are hand swirled and end pieces have less swirling. You will be sent a random piece, but they are all the same size.
The soap is unscented and has a yellow look to the bubbles but rinses clear. It has lots of moisturizing oils and doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight like some soaps. There is a cap of 33 for the US and 5 for the UK and is priced at $4US. Available only through Polish Pickup February 7th to 10th.
Alter Ego Daffodils Peek Through The Leaves Polish Swatches
The Polish Pickup exclusive Daffodils Peek Through The Leaves is a dark green with a touch of teal. It has an almost metallic finish with gold flakes. Cynthia’s formula wears well on my nails but this lasted longer than usual. I wore it for over a week with just a small chip on my pointer on the final day.
