Bath time, self care time!

Special thanks to Brill Communications for sending out such an adorable little package. The package consists of 2 Me Bath bath bombs, a cute blue IKEA towel and a mermaid mask. I know how stressful it can be living life in quarantine but hang in there, friends. Remember to wear a mask, social distance and be kind. πŸ™‚

Work has been hectic as per usual so I like to indulge and treat myself to a nice warm bath from time to time. I can never have too many bath bombs because I go through them quite frequently during the colder seasons. These bath bombs from Me Bath come in a nice range of colours and scents to choose from. They are relatively a new brand so expect to see more variety added in the future. These retail for $4.99 each and are available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

The two bath bombs I received were:

Mystic Mermaid – which has a fantastic aquatic scent and adds a gorgeous aqua-blue hue to your bath water. It’s very fitting to the theme and makes the whole bath experience more fun and exciting.

Unicorn Magic has a delicious sweet, fruity scent and it gives out a nice, bright neon pink hue to your bath water.

Bath time paired with a nice beverage of your choice, a book or even streaming your favourite shows always helps you unwind and puts everything else on pause. It’s a nice little treat you can give yourself. Bath bombs can be pretty expensive and range between 6 to 10 dollars so it’s nice to see Me Bath make the effort to create an affordable option.

With bath time, you can customize and amp up the experience by adding a bubbles or even some bath salts, the options are quite endless! Be sure to not have your bath water scorching hot because you’re going to irritate and dry out your skin. And try not to stay in for too long because your fingers and toes may prune up. I think disclaimers like these can be helpful since I almost never hear anyone mention these sorts of things. It’s good to take precautions and remember to enjoy your self care time!

[REVIEW] ANGEL LOOKA SOFT WHIPPED CREAM BODY RECIPE

Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! I’ve been off the web for a while and just been posting queued posts on Instagram. I hope you all are doing well and had a wonderful holidays.

Body care is crucial, I don’t think I ever taken it seriously until recently early in 2019. My skin has significantly gotten a lot drier throughout the years so it’s best to care for it. You guys know how much I adore cute themed cosmetics and could never say no to them even if I tried. Elena from My Precious Cosmetics is the store owner for this beautiful K-beauty online boutique, she’s such a sweet person and offers incredible service. For those of you who speak Spanish, there is an option on the website to read everything in Spanish. There’s a nice range of indie K-Beauty brands to choose from Gaston, NOHJ, The Oozoo, Barangsori, Angel Looka, and Fraijour. I did a review on the Gaston Cushion a while back and honestly, it’s still one of my favourite cushion products I use. The Oozoo is another familiar brand I’ve used in the past and I really enjoyed their injection + bear aurora masks.

My thoughts

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how adorable these creams are? The details of the packaging are so fun and colourful. The lid looks like an ice cream shape appearance to it and the tube has a cute illustration of an ice cream cone. I own a lot of cute products but I don’t think I have anything like this. I have products that smell and look like dessert but this is a whole new level of cuteness. I’m really picky with body creams because I don’t like sticky consistencies or too thick because it’s hard to apply and break the product down in the skin so I prefer body products that are more water-like gel/jelly, lightweight feeling on the skin.

Overall

  • Texture: 5/5 – It has a milky whipped gel consistency and it blends so nicely into the skin, it’s almost like you don’t need to put so much effort into it applying the product in. It’s very moisturizing and does not feel sticky on the skin.Β  If you’re someone who doesn’t like body butter and thick textures, this is the perfect product for you because it’s so lightweight on the skin, you almost feel like it’s not even on your skin. There’s no pilling, residue from these and almost have a “balm-like” finish to them, which is so cool because it starts off a gel then transforms into this moisturizing balm.
  • Scent: 5/5 – The scents are really nice and light smelling, you won’t get a headache from smelling these because they’re lightly fragranced and they all smell like fruity desserts.
  • Price: 4/5 – For 150g of product, $17.66 is pretty affordable because there’s so much product in here! I think it would take me 3 months to finish one tube or maybe even longer. It’s a fun and cute product and I think it would an excellent gift for yourself or your loved ones who enjoy cute skincare products.
  • Performance: 5/5 – It works nicely and it’s definitely an effective product and doesn’t just only look nice.
  • Packaging: 5/5 – How can you say no to this? This is so cute and makes a fantastic gift for you and your loved ones. Christmas may have past, however, there are always birthdays and Β Valentine’s day is right by the corner too! Share this with your sweethearts in your life.
  • Overall: 5/5 – I really appreciate the thought and effort they put into this cream. I personally am really attracted to cute packaging and I love how they made skincare fun and exciting to look at and use. Everytime I see these on my desk, I smile because they’re adorable.
