The Body Shop Candied Ginger review
I bought these few products from The Body Shop over Christmas break, at first I was unsure about the "ginger," it didn't sound nice at all until I got a whiff of the product. I don't know how to describe the scent but I figure, it smells like ginger beer! Well ginger beer doesn't smell but.. it smells like the taste of ginger beer? Make sense? If not, kinda like a lollipop scent with a hint of ginger. All you need to know is this line smells freaking good!
I hate the feeling of sticky lipglosses/lipbalms/lipsticks. Feels so yukky but with this product, it's
only slightly sticky so it doesn't irritate me to an extreme point. You will only
need a small amount to cover your lips, a little goes a long way.
This scrub is surprisingly gentle, I expected it to be similar to the previous exfoliants/scrubs I have used which felt harsh on the skin and if you scrubbed hard enough you could hurt yourself with.
Even though it's gentle it's effectiveness doesn't fall under the harsher scrubs. After using this product my skin looks somewhat brighter, has a slight glow and feels a hell lot softer!
Candied Ginger body butter ♥ The Body shop's body butters are one of the top selling
products in store. They are amazing at moisturizing skin, although they're a bite in the wallet, the effectiveness of the product is definitely worth what they're sold for. And they do last for ages! :)
The texture is very creamy and absorbs quickly on the skin + it leaves you smelling great! The smell of
the body butter lasts for atleast 4-5 hours!
up my bathroom with the "Candied ginger" scent. Mmm ;3 But honestly for the pricetag it isn't worth it.
Many body washes from the supermarket can have the same effect. Not to say this isn't
a great product, it is but many other products can offer the same benefits for a lower price tag.
end of reviewww. until next time, baibai
Gatsby moving rubber review - Spiky edge, Grunge mat, Wild shake and Loose shuffle
Tbh I was running out of post ideas so I resulted to doing a review on Gatsby Moving Rubber! :D
I'm a frequent user of Gatsby but I wouldn't say I'm one of those Gatsby fanboys "omg Gatsby omg omg omg" :/ I use a different colour for a different purpose.. they're probably not designed for the
hair purposes I use them for but they work for me so hey! ;)
I'll start off with the basic info for the Gatsby noobs, Gatsby Moving Rubber is a Japanese hair wax. It's designed for guys but I don't see why girls can't use it. :) I remember this product being all the hype in
my Bebo days. Everybody was raving about these babies saying they were the best of the best! :D I get the regular size which is 80g and this usually lasts me for 5-6 months. So it's a good deal for it's buck. The line has several different formulas, each fit with a different purpose, gloss level and hold.
The pink one's the one I use the most and is also the most popular of the Gatsby line. It has a strong hold, I never have to use hairspray after because it holds for pretty much the whole day but I find it difficult to get out of my hair, apart from that everything is *thumbs up*. I use "Spiky edge" to add volume to my limp, flat asian hair >:D I don't have to use a lot of product, my hair is half way down my back and I only need a dab of product for my whole head.
This one was my favourite before I used "Spiky edge." I use this product to define my layers. I only use this product when I have straight hair as the only purpose I have for it is to achieve a minimal "scene" hairstyle
I don't have a lot to say about this one.
I don't use this one a lot simply coz it does little to nothing for me. This product was created to give the "matte/no shine" effect and to add some texture to the hair. I use this n my very VERY lazy days where I grab some of the product and roughly distribute it in my hair. It's strength isn't strong so it doesn't make my hair go all crazy and stand on end when I roughly rub it in my hair. Grunge mat isn't sticky at all and it's great for those looking for natural looking volume in their hair or that slight "bounce."
Last but not least, I use dis orangee wun to add texture to my hair or to achieve the "bed head/messy" type look. I don't like using this product on poker straight hair as it's not flattering, for me anyways. As for the strength of the hold, it's quite weak. You'll have to fix it with hair spray if you want your hair style to last the day but that wasn't a biggie for me. The texture is a little too sticky for my liking (you have to distribute the product very quickly, as it does dry very fast. After a few moments it's hard to style with and becomes overly sticky) but this is still a great product! :)
I ALMOST FORGOT! Every single formula smells of green apples! <333
