[REVIEW] Skinfood Gummy Bear Hand Cream in Cherry Chocolate

Skinfood Gummy Bear Hand Cream – Cherry Chocolate (45ml)


Good afternoon ladies and gents, I hope we all are having a wonderful Thursday. Don’t worry, Friday is right by the corner. Today, I’m here to share my thoughts on this hand cream I got recently in the mail. It’s pretty adorable, huh? I do recall seeing this hand cream available in multiple different scents about 1-2 years ago? I thought these were completely sold out but I was lucky enough to stumble across an eBay seller who sold these. They weren’t cheap, I do recall paying about 12 Canadian dollars for it. These range from 8 Canadian dollars to 12 Canadian dollars. It really depends on where you decide to purchase these.

The scent reminds me of a Milky, Cherry creamsicle, I don’t really smell the chocolate/cocoa notes. As you can see in the photo, my hand is outrageously dry, doesn’t matter whether it’s fall, winter, spring or summer, my hands will always somehow be dry. I have been really neglecting my hand care so I should really get back into habit using hand creams when needed.

The first thing I noticed for texture was that this it’s not watery, thin nor is it too thick. It has a perfect combination of the two making it extremely easy to massage into the skin. You don’t need a lot of it to moisturize your hands and you most definitely can layer it if needed. It doesn’t give you that thick white cast on your hands when you apply too much which is nice because, at times, I tend to accidentally dispense out more hand cream than needed.

Texture: 5/5 – This is my ideal texture I would like in a hand cream. A hybrid between lightweight but not watery and not thick where it’s difficult to spread.
Price: 3/5 – A bit on the pricey side for a standard hand cream but at least the packaging is adorbs.
Packaging: 5/5 – Super adorable, compact and iconic! Who doesn’t know or love gummy bears?
Moisturizing: 3/5 – I think this is a standard hand cream, it’s most definitely not heavy duty enough for dry, cracky winter hands
Scent: 3/5 – This scent could be better, I wish it smelled more like cherry chocolate because it really reminds of a cherry milkshake, cherry creamsicle or even creme savers hard candy!

I would probably recommend this anyone who collects cosmetics and loves cute packaging. It’s definitely something you can do without but great for those who collect these sorts of things.

 

Thanks for dropping by to check out my review~ Til next time, friends.

[REVIEW] Mediheal’s Pumpkin Ade Mask

Hey hey friends,

This is my very first mask review post! I first discovered this mask on instagram and I saw various posts on it so I wanted to try it out. I was strolling around Miniso one day and came across this one along with their lime ade one so I got a few of both to try out.

My skin type: Sensitive, combination + dehydrated and acne prone

  • Long-term use can solve any allergies caused by dry skin

Ingredients – cosDNA

  • cb6ca27e85d32ec47e818cb80c7ce300.png

 

PROS

  • Delicious scent, really reminds me of the Kocostar pumpkin patches mask however it smells more like pumpkin puree with vanilla than it does for pumpkin regardless it smells amazing
  • Adorable packaging – reminds me of fall time
  • Smoothens and provides a nice cooling effect on the skin
  • SURPRISINGLY did not break out from it
  • Absorbs well, after removing it the serum was more or less gone

CONS

  • Mask is on the thicker side, I prefer thinner/gel masks!
  • Very irritating, I was very itchy after I removed off the mask – the skin around my cheeks were quite red
  • Mask did not fit my face very well and it often flare out and form random openings
  • Even though it smelled fantastic, the fragrance most likely irritated my skin
  • Not enough serum inside, I personally found the sheet mask on the “drier” side. I prefer drenched, soaked in serum masks – I always take the excess product and apply it on my neck and arms
  • Leaves a slight tackiness to the skin – I don’t like feeling sticky at all.

Verdict: 1/5

1 star for the scent, HA! This mask would probably perform fine on those who don’t have sensitive skin. My skin does not like fragrance. I can get away with products with a lower dosage of fragrance (has to be in the very bottom of the ingredient list).
