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.
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.

Better late than never! I got this box about month ago but never got around to posting it until now. Holidays are always a busy time for me. I like how they mixed it up a little bit more with this box — I think it’s one of the more different ones from their past boxes. Still a great deal for $5 just to try these out. Here’s what I got in my Walmart Winter 2017 Beauty Box.
Overall, like I mentioned earlier I feel like they changed it up more with this box compared to the previous ones. This is mostly due to the sleeping mask and the flossers. I’m very glad they decided to switch up from the usual travel size shampoo and conditioner. I feel like they’ve done that A LOT. They have a lotion in just about every box too but at least they do change that up I think.
I’m most excited about the sleeping mask! Can’t wait to try it out.
I got my Walmart Fall 2016 Beauty Box in about 2 weeks ago. I was fairly pleased with what I got for $5 (yet again!).
The boxes vary in terms of worth to me each time but what it boils down to is it’s just $5 and looking at everything I got, that’s not a bad price for it at all.
I see a few things already here that I can use immediately. This is a great way to try some stuff out before committing to a full-sized product!
Hey guys! Today’s post is on something I got with my ipsy January 2016 Glam Bag. Here’s what I think about the Mitchell and Peach English Leaf Body Cream.
What I love about this product? As a body cream, it has the right formula in thickness and consistency. It’s not too viscous and applies very easily onto the skin. My skin absorbed it pretty quick and it keeps my skin well moisturized for hours. The scent is described as being a bright ‘green floral’ scent. To me, it’s very garden-y/green. To my co-worker sis Didi it smells earthy while to my co-worker Logan it’s a floral scent. I find that the scent changes after staying on my skin for a while. It smells a little soapy to me — but just a hint of it. I use it on my hands a lot for a while as it keeps my cuticles very moisturized.
What I don’t like about this product? The scent might be a problem for some but if I really had to be picky it would be the accessibility of this brand. I can only get it from online retailers based on where I live it seems.

Hey guys! Today’s post is on something I’ve just finished up today. Here’s my take on the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter.
At 59 ml / 2 fl oz, I got this set of 2 at Sephora a little over a year ago. I didn’t get to use it until recently.
The website describes this item with the following:
“It’s not heavy, it’s my butter—silky, intensely hydrating body butter that smells subtly yum and gives sweet relief to the driest skin. Packed with luscious oils and whipped to a feather-light texture, it sinks in instantly for velvety soft skin to create an argan oil infused body lotion in a flash. Spread the love and feel the difference.
Why I love it: No matter how many hot baths or red-eye flights I take, this stuff has my back and my front, and everywhere else. It’s hard-core enough to quench parched elbows and heels, but never greasy or sticky. And the two fresh, natural scents, vanilla apricot or sweet citrus, lightly linger on my skin like an all-day aromatherapy infusion.
What’s in it: No wonder it feels so good. My Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter is a powerhouse of more than ten plant oils and extracts, plus the star of the show, 100% Pure Argan Oil, with its restorative and antioxidant properties.
What’s not in it: I dont clutter my butter with ingredients that are toxic, or unethically tested. That means no parabens or harsh artificial fragrances. And no guinea pigs, unless you count my friends and family.”
Verdict? I love it. It is everything I have come to more or less expect from a good body butter. It is definitely light and absorbs really nice into the skin. What I will say that this isn’t a non-greasy formula. It’s light — I’ll give it that — but it has the lightest touch of greasiness that comes with oil-based body butters. It’s almost not noticeable but it’s there. And when compared to other oil-based body butters — yes, I’d say it’s not greasy at all. It lasts just as long as I expected from these little tubs — more than I can say for the Nspa Coconut Body Butter I’ve reviewed recently. Between Sweet Citrus and Vanilla Apricot, I prefer Sweet Citrus. I feel that the freshness in this scent is pleasant and it’s more true to the name of the scent than Vanilla Apricot.
At $35 for 240 ml / 8 oz, this product is available on their website. Products from this brand is also carried by other retailers such as Sephora.
