Cococare The Yellow Stick and Moisturising Stick

I love Shea butter moisturising stick. It’s a good moisturiser, but I use it more like a body hand lotion. It just melt under the heat of your hand. I like it. It’s meltie and makes my skin smooth. It’s also good for wrinkles, stretch marks and dry skin. 

100% Cocoa butter is a bit harder. It doesn’t really melt on your hand. The way I use these stuff is like how you use a stick glue. Cocoa butter will melt when you rub your skin. So it’s not that hard for it to melt. It’s just a bit more solid. I just think if you like the smell of cocoa, you’ll love this. It’s the same scent as the lipbalm also. This just say that it’s for stretch marks and dry skin. 

In the end cocoa butter is slightly more moisturising. I don’t mind both. But I think this is really good for anyone who are not allowed to scratch their skin, but feeling the itch. Moisturising is good for skin, so you can use the stick to so call scratch yourself. It’s gentle and good for you. Also not overly pricey. I can’t remember exactly. But it should be below $5. 

Ziaja Natural Olive Body Butter

Ziaja Natural Olive Body ButterI am always scared to try anything olive. I am just cared of the scent. This smells better than the TBS olive series though. I don’t really know what it smells like but it is alright. It is quite thick, unlike the goat milk body lotion.
It is quite easy to blend, feels quite moisturizing. It also feels nice on the hands. It sort of helps with my elbow’s dryness. But I don’t think I will purchase the full size as I am just not in love with it. There are better body butter out there.

Products I Regret Buying

Canmake Nudy Glow
I don’t like this. The packaging is just horrible. As in when you remove the brush, there’s isn’t a stopper to get rid most of the product. So there will be just too much gloss on the brush which is really bad and messy and sticky. This is no6, just the worse color possible on me.

The color looks so pretty when swatch though. The formula is sticky at first, then when it sit, it just becomes thick and quite uncomfortable on the lips. Not as sticky anymore, but you can feel that you are wearing gloss.

This looks ok, but this takes me 5 minutes to fix. And even so, the lines of my lips are so obvious. Usually it will be just gooey, that probably isn’t the right word, but it’s just that. Too much products on the lips and colors just can’t work for me.

Nip+Fab Pistachio Sundae Body Butter

I love Nip+Fab, I love pistachio. But this smells exactly like pandan. Now I get why people use pandan for cooking. It really is that strong and it throw off any scent away and replace it. I like pandan smelling food, but not for my body. And look at the green, it just really remind you of pandan.

Beauty Blender

I regret purchasing this. This cost $29.90 and I only used it once as a trial. I only used it once for half my face just to see how great it is. Oh it is fun to use. I really like how it inflate when you soak it in water. I like that the sponge is really different than makeup sponges I used. The roundness and the pointy tip is just great. It gave a really sheer coverage and can be build up without it looking cakey. So why do I hate it?

This is why. Can you see the black spots all around the sponge? After using, I put it aside. I guess it’s my fault for having such a “moist” room that spores actually grew on it. My beauty blender is covered by moulds! Have I mention I only use it once? Really heartbreaking.

Celebrity’s Choice Cellulite Treatment

Ever since I grow older and stop clubbing, my cellulite is getting worse. I know you will be questioning me, but here is why. When I club, I will wear heels and I will be on my feet to dance for a minimum of 4 hours. I love to dance, even though I don’t know how. Anyway, that helps with cellulite. Clubbing is my exercise as long as I don’t drink too much to add in to the calories intake.
I thought this will help as it is a celebrity choice. But I don’t think cellulite can ever be reduce without the help of exercise. So even though they say result is visible within 4 weeks, this is just simply a waste money.

Daiso cleansing wipes

So this is the second makeup remover wipes from Daiso that I picked up. The scent from the box smells ok. However when you take it out, it’s just so ew. It smelt so sour, and I really can’t stand the scent. I then only use this for removing swatches. Even then the scent kind of linger, so I have to wash my hand for it to disappear.
For the wipe itself, it’s rather small. 3 squares join into a rectangle. It is not too wet, doesn’t remove waterproof mascara quite well. Other than stubborn mascara, it cleans pretty well. So ya, the scent makes me regret purchasing this. Even though it’s 30 sheets for only $2.

Nip+Fab body butter in mango smoothie

20130709-203711.jpg
Even since I saw it at Watsons for $2.50, I fell in love. So not only its a body butter but it smell wonderful. However it smell more of strawberries instead of mangoes. Nevertheless it still yummy.

It’s yellow and it feels exactly like butter. Ever touch butter and feel them between your fingers? It’s exactly like that but without the grease. Plus the fact that it’s yellow just bring the image of butter in your mind. So not only it looks like butter, it feels like butter.

It’s really moisturizing. It spread on easily and get absorb by the skin really well. Non greasy and the scent kind of linger without being overpowering. I love the fact that after a while when you touch your skin, you can still feel the smoothness and moisture. It’s not sticky which is good. It’s not watery, it’s not too thick. The consistency is just right.

Really really love this body butter. Really love the feeling of the lotion. Love putting it on. It just feels really nice. For $2.50 is really inexpensive. I’ve been trying to find it all over Singapore, but I can’t find it anymore. Kind of sad bout that, but at least there is a legit reason to go into Watsons now.

Palmer’s cocoa butter

After reading Louise from Lou Lou’s beauty & fashion fix cocoa butter reviews, I really wanted to try one. I love chocolate but not a fan of cocoa smelling product. I have the H&M lip balm, which eventually the scent become too unbearable for me.

However seeing anything cocoa just make me want to try them. Sometime my brain just can’t process well. Lucky for me I managed to get samples of Palmer’s cocoa butter.

The first thing I notice when I opened the sachet is that it is sort of a pale yellow creamy lotion. The smell is not that strong which is good. It still has the cocoa product smell, but it wasn’t bad. It doesn’t smell all that great too. That just cause I don’t like the scent of cocoa.

I applied it on my legs and I am really disappointed that it is hard to lather on. I have to rub it together rather harshly for it to sink. Seeing as it is a butter, I know it is suppose to be quite thick. But I would rather have watery texture that is easy to apply. I guess seeing Louise review on this, gives me the expectation of easy blend-able lotion. Normally I wouldn’t mind so much, but I was in hurry to get out the door. That’s why I was kind of disappointed.

Anyhow, it states here that it helps to even skin tone, an excellent after tanning butter and recommended for stretch marks. So I guess it is more than just a lotion that smoothes and relieves dry skin. Wouldn’t know much bout that as I only managed to use it twice.
