The SAEM Chocopie Hand Cream


I love this. It’s just such a cute packaging. I like that the hand cream has dots of “chocolate chips”. When you use it, the chocolate kind of streak but it will blend clear. So no worry about that. This doesn’t have much scent. I love how this just sink into the skin very fast. It’s not sticky. Hands feel soft and lovely. Not exactly very moisturising, but it’s good enough. 

The thing I don’t like is that the packaging make it hard to use the product. You can easily open but there is a clear plastic that protect the cream. It’s good, but it just make you have an extra step before you can use this. Also, you can’t really throw away the plastic cause it’s the stopper. Once gone, the cream will go to the lid, and I think that will make it more messy.

Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Travel Set


It’s nice when people travel taking business class to a long distance country, and they do not want the free goodies. So it will be pass down to me instead. This one is like for 2015/2016 cause I know now Ferragamo came out with the new perfume (Signoria Eleganza) which I am happened to have a set too. 

Signorina, a lovely and chic Italian name that literally means young woman. Stylish, truly Italian, fresh and full of life.

The bright fizzy notes of currant spiced by fresh pink pepper bring their joyful, cheeky character to green notes. A generous dewy floral heart is composed of elegant jasmine, pink peony and rose. Spontaneous and delicate sweetness of pannacotta together with soft musks and intriguing woody patchouli notes offer a racy Italian elegance and an unexpected addictiveness.

I like it. It’s a nice scent. Feminine. Gentle. But the first spray is quite strong. It’s just that the scent is rather on the soft side. It’s perfect for daily and morning when you don’t have a plan. 

The hand lotion is alright. The scent is there. But I just don’t really like it. I guess it’s travel size but it’s still not small enough. Cause this is kind of chubby. The lotion also doesn’t take fast to sink in. But it’s alright especially when you are on the plane. 

The lip balm is a white balm. It’s the same as the Attimo one. I guess it’s just something you can use on the plane without drying your lips. I don’t like it and the scent wasn’t there. But I can imagine if your are up there in the cabin without a balm. You will be fine with having this. 

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream

This is so nice. It’s not plastic like the one given on SQ and this is 15ml instead of 5ml. I prefer the Rose scent as it’s quite subtle. It feels nicer on the skin. Very feminine and gentle that kind of feel. 

I like that it’s not sticky at all. It absorb into the skin almost instantly. I like that it’s small and it’s easy to use. Yah, that’s about it. The size of 100ml is about $39 I think. So it’s actually quite pricey. 

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash & Balm 

These smells really really good. It has the mandarin scent. So it’s very fresh but it has other scents too making not so fruity. It’s quite a good blend of scents. The hand wash is typical. So nothing much except I enjoy it. For the balm, a little is all you need. I find that one pump is too much. It takes time to sink in. It’s very moisturising, so I find that it’s too much for a simple hand cream. But if it’s something you use before bed time, it will be just nice. 

Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream

This smells exactly like the lip balm. It’s not a scent I like. But I’m used to it. It’s very citrusy. It’s a good hand cream. Easily absorbed and helps keep your hand rather soft. I can see why this is a favourite for a lot of people. If it is not cause of the scent, I can see that this will be a fav too. I mean it’s just light and easy to use. The cap also easily open and close. I got nothing else to say, except ya good hand cream. 

Trilogy Handbag Heroes

Got this for Christmas. It’s a very nice small trio set with a cute small makeup pouch. It’s smaller than my iPhone plus. So it has a Rosehip Oil Antioxidant, Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream and Rosehip Oil Lip Balm. 

 
The lipbalm has peppermint in it, so its quite nice. It is a clear oily rather liquid-like balm. It is 7ml, so really good decent amount. It makes your lips rather shiny. So it can be used a clear gloss I guess. It’s not bad, helps prevent chapped lips during cold weather, but it doesn’t exactly heal them if you have cracked lips. 

The oil is ulti purpose. I guess the main purpose is to actually use them as a moisturiser. Like a touch up on the go, if your face start to get dry. I don’t really like the smell. It takes time to get used to it. It is only 2.5ml, but a little goes a long way. It has like a little pump, so that’s nice too. In the end, this can only be used for cold weather. Or basically for people with dry skin. I still keep it in my bag, cause it’s just cute to have around. 

The hand cream is 20ml. It has the scent of Cethaphil with a hint of orange. A bit weird, cause I don’t like the sweet orange smell. But the “medicated” scent helps making this better. It’s a thick cream as in it seems light until you try to spread it out to your hands. It just seems to sink into the skin so quick that you have to apply more. But it’s good. It means that the product get absorb into the skin and not just grace the surface. Takes a minute to dry, then it leaves your hand feeling really soft. It’s quite good for dry hands. Just the waiting time. So, use this only when you know your hands will be free for at least a minute. 

Overall, I think the set is catered to people who lives in colder country. But still a good mini set to have handy in your bag. It’s not that cheap though. I think it’s about $40. 

VS Ravishing Love Hand and Body Cream

This is quite average thick but easily blend into the skin. It’s a very nice scent. A bit mature and sensual. A blend of blackberry and lilac. It takes sometime for it to sink into the skin. The one thing I don’t like is that it takes forever to finish the whole tub. I guess that’s good, but I just get bored by it. 

 

Harnn Oriental Rose Hand Balm with Coenzyme Q10

This is made in Thailand. 25g. Not sure if it’s a Thai brand but I love it. It’s just a tube that has to be punctured before use. So that’s a great way to ensure new product. The cream is light and it smells lovely. It is rose, but not so overpowering. I like it. I think I am really getting into the rose scent. Cause I’m now ok with the scent of roses unlike before. But I guess maybe it’s the roses that doesn’t stink as much. Anyway, the best part about this is that it sinks into skin really fast. Like magic. I’m so impress. I think it’s the best hand cream in the world so far. A lot of lotion sink into the skin but not as fast as this. And it just doesn’t leave that sticky feeling. As if I didn’t put on any cream at all. I mean there is tiger fast and then there is jaguar fast, you know why I mean. So ya. Highly recommend this.
