Dove Exfoliating Body Polish

Hey guys! Today’s post is on a sample I got from my Walmart Summer 2018 Beauty Box. Here’s my quick review on the Dove Exfoliating Body Polish.

What I love about this product? While this sample lasted me only for one shower, I feel like I have enough to share with you my thoughts on this product. I was expecting a nutty scent kinda like a coconut maybe, but it’s not quite like that. It’s most subtle, like some lightly scented baked cookie with nuts that has a hint of vanilla. It’s not strong at all to me. My husband said it reminds him of a detergent scent — not like full-on Tide but one of those various Gain scents or something. It’s pleasant. The texture of it is on the creamy side to me and I can actually just use my hands to grab a good amount and rub it over my body in a circular motion. I don’t feel like the product melts away too fast in the shower but I definitely applied it to damp skin as opposed to under running water. It’s not very exfoliating to me but it actually does the job still. It mildly exfoliates is what I would say. It left my skin feeling luxuriously soft and smooth.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all! Once I’m done going through my stock of body washes and scrubs, I’m off to purchase this! It can be purchased in many retailers for a reasonable price.

Curtain Call: NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Today’s post is on a product I got from my ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag. Here’s my thoughts on the NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop.

NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop

What I love about this product? It is described with the following on their website: “A unique oil drop texture that combines the hydrating effects of oil and moisturizing effects of an ampoule in a one-of-a-kind formula containing precious white truffle. This serum improves dark dull skin tone while giving a glow to skin. The result? You will see a hydrated, bright, and glowing looking skin. Its hypoallergenic formula is perfect for all skin type including sensitive skin.” The product itself is golden yellow in color and is clear. It has a subtle glowing effect when applied onto my face. The feeling left on my face when applied is not greasy at all. I use a generous drop (or 2!) of this and spread it all over my face with my fingers. I use this as my step 4 in the Korean 10-step skin routine I started a little while ago (my nightly routine is now up to 9 steps every night). It is so light that I keep on layering stuff onto my face with no issues on how my face feels with it. To me, there is a scent to it but it’s so light that I honestly don’t even know how to describe it. My husband sniffed it and said he can’t really smell anything, so this is a definite win in my book! I’ve used this product for at least 2 whole months and I love how light it is while making my face feel so soft and supple.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all! I am now trying another facial serum as I ran out of this a few weeks ago and let me tell you, this is so much better.

Zoya Naked Manicure Healing Dry Skin Hand & Body Cream

Hey guys! To those that play Pokemon Go, today is Community Day! I hope to be able to see and catch a Squirtle sporting some sunnies! Haha! And if you’re out yesterday like I was, I hope you managed to snag yourself a shiny Articuno! Onto blog stuff, today’s post is on something I’ve been using diligently since March. Here’s my take on the Zoya Naked Manicure Healing Dry Skin Hand & Body Cream.

Zoya Naked Manicure Healing Dry Skin Hand & Body Cream

What I love about this product? While I’m not a huge fan of the scent initially (as scent is relative to everyone), I’m okay with it now. The scent is leaning on the strong side but it dissipates over time quickly enough that it doesn’t bother me anymore. It did in the beginning though. I thought maybe it was a hint of a certain kind of vanilla but my husband doesn’t really detect vanilla. He described it as “honey flower” and I can agree with that. The product comes in a twist cap tube that a lot of body creams and lotions come in. It is white in color and the consistency is what I would expect from a lotion more than a cream BUT the leftover feel the product has on my hands is definitely like a rich lotion or cream to me. I use this on my hands the most but I can see it working nicely on anywhere on my body, except for the face as it says so on the tube in bold lettering.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing but while I like it, it doesn’t replace my holy grail hand cream from the Hand Perfection Anti-Aging Hand Care System I’ve used a while ago. And I’m not sure if it can beat the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream for winter hand problems that I’ve had.

ipsy June 2018 Glam Bag

A little late again but better late than never! Ever since I started Pokemon Go from scratch last week, all my free time has been devoted to it. I finished with the Articuno raid with my co-worker friend Lohan and a bunch of his friends. I used all raid passes and I realized I have to get used to being in raids more (I forgot to use the golden razz!!!). Anyway, here’s what I got in my ipsy June 2018 Glam Bag.

ipsy June 2018 Glam Bag

The bag I got is nice. It’s a material that will repel drops of water when it comes in contact. Very good to have those on hand. First item that caught my eye is the FORMULA 10.0.6 Three Times Sublime. I love face masks and this one is described on ipsy as “a cleanser, exfoliant, and face mask (yup, all three) that treats blemishes, removes blackheads, unclogs pores, and controls oil.” Next item that caught my eye is the MAKE UP FOR EVER STEP1 Skin Equalizer Primer. I’ll try it out to see how it smoothes out my large pores. Then we have the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Eye Repair Cream. I’ve has great experience using the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream so I have high hopes for this. Next we have the Kaleido Cosmetics Skin Blush. ipsy subscribers got this in either Prom Queen or Primadonna, which is what I got. Last up is the Estate Cosmetics Lip Icing. The shade I got is called Goodie.

Not bad again! Next month’s bag should be out in transit to me shortly and I can’t wait cause I saw what the makeup bag looks like and it looks really nice. I hope the material is nice too.
