It’s that time again, the time where you sit down and cry because Monday is almost upon us. It’s also time for Sample Sundays, yay! So leggo!
Derma:B Daily Moisture Body Wash
I received this in a Memebox way back and have finally gotten around to using it. I don’t have anything too interesting to say about this product: it did its job, no more no less. Nothing outrageous but nothing upsetting either. Just a whole lot of… nothing? Perhaps this is better for those with sensitive skin as it was non-irritating, but if you’re into delicious, luxurious shower products… may I suggest looking elsewhere.
I bought the Etude House Super Collagen Cream eons ago, and at the time it came with a deluxe sample of this essence (edit: it’s still available!). Of course, being the hoarder I am, I tucked it away for a rainy day and have only just finished it. This has the exact same lemony scent as the moisturiser, and I found that this essence felt really light on my skin and not too sticky. It wasn’t anything too crazy, but it did the job nicely!
I love this whole range, and the toner is no exception. The scent is divine and it seems to work really well with my skin. I find these products quite moisturising (perfect for winter) but not too heavy or sticky. They are just perfection! I am waiting for Nature Republic to stop testing on animals so that I can buy more of these babies… delicious.
This is an oldie and I think it’s discontinued, so there’s not too much point to me reviewing it, but hey ho, here we are! I received this sample a long time ago and just buried it in a pile of bazillion samples that was cluttering my life. Since then, I have cut down my stash considerably, but a few sneaky old dogs still get through, and so I’m clamping down. This cute little bottle is one such sneaky dog, and it’s time has come. I just realised that these four lines have told you absolutely nothing about the product itself, so here is my micro review: is good, smells fresh, keeps you clean.
As y’all probably know by now, I love the Nature Republic Snail Solution line. It’s really moisturising, feels great on my skin, is non-irritating (a big one for me) – and it smells great! What more could you want? This cleanser has a similar consistency to the rest of the products – that slightly sticky viscosity which holds all of the snail goodness. I really like this, five out of five slimy snails from me.
Another winner on the scent front (as is the rest of this divine range), this cream was a nice, heavier-duty moisturiser that left my skin feeling quenched but not too heavy. I found that this cream absorbed into my skin quickly and it almost felt like it wasn’t there – which is a very good thing in my books!
Skinfood 20% Shea Butter Creamy Body Wash
A little while ago I talked about the matching body moisturiser, which came in a spray form (and which left my bathroom floor dangerously slippery). Well, this moisturiser once again has the exact same scent as its creamier counterpart, and I found that it was equally nourishing. For any of y’all that know shea butter, you know that it is a godsend, particularly in harsh, bitter winters (oh hay KorWithea). This doesn’t hold a candle to L’Occitane’s Almond Body Oil, but its a good budget competitor.
And that’s it for this week! By the way, I am going to start taking more photos of the products actually on my face (as was requested by one commenter) which makes more sense, I know. I usually write at night, when the light isn’t good and when my face isn’t good, either. But I will endeavour to take more daylight pics! So stay tuned.
Until next time (tomorrow),
