Review: Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub

6. September 2016

Here is my promised review about the Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub which was sent to me by Wishtrend. I talked about the hair care products from this newly launched brand Jungle Botanics previously, and all in all I am very pleased with this new brand and the products I tested. Here is my impression, not about hair care, but about body care:

Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub

Jungle Botanics is a brand created by Wishtrend. According to its description it brings to you the vitality of the green jungle by combining advanced technologies  with natural ingredients. So far there are three products available from this brand: the Jungle Botanics Forest Leaves Cooling Shampoo and Warming Treatment and the Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub.

Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub

I love body scrubs! Especially, when I feel my skin is dry and I have flakes of dry skin clinging around there is nothing better than removing those unwanted flakes with a good body scrub and use a rich body moisturizer afterwards! Also, if you are using spray tan or similar a good body scrub is your best friend! Body scrubs are designed to give you smooth, glowing and healthy skin!

Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub

The ingredients of the Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub are listed below and you can check them via COSDNA, too! You can see that the scrub uses walnut shell powder for achieving a perfect and environmental friendly scrub of your skin. So no microbeads here! Yei! The scrub comes in a beautiful bronze/brown tube packaging and contains 250 ml. The product has a soft consistency with very fine walnut shell particles visible. The Walnut Shell Powder is round-cut and fine as sand and doesn’t hurt the skin. Therefore it is non irritating and suited for more sensitive skin types, too.

Ingredients: Water, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, TEA-Lauryl Sulfate, Propylene Glycol Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Fragrance, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Oleyl Alcohol, Sodium Chloride, Cocamide DEA, Triethanolamine, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Carbomer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sucrose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Mannitol, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Pentaclethra macroloba seed oil, Garcinia Indica Seed Butter, Bertholletia Excelsa Seed Oil, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Butylene Glycol, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Extract, Moringa Oleifera Leaf Extract, Malpighia Emarginata (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Crocus Sativus Flower Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Extract, Achillea Millefolium Flower Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Persica (Peach) Kernel Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Oil, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Pseudozyma Epicola/Soybean Flour/Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil Ferment Filtrate, Tin Oxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, CI 77491

The ingredients list contains cacao seed butter plus 10 other plant derived oils. Moreover it contains Pseudizyma epicola ferment filtrate. Also here, the majority of the ingredients is green-labelled, but still there are some potential irritants and triggers which should be considered before using them, especially for allergic people. There is a red-labelled ingredient, too, which I discussed in one previous review of the Wish Formula C200 Bubble Peeling Pad, the Cocamide DEA. For rinse off products it is safe to use, but also depends on the concentration. So please be sure to patch test before using it.
Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub

The Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub has a mousse texture, which comes with a bronze color (fits to the packaging) and tiny granules, which appear like sand first. They allow a very fine and soft scrub, but also melt away nicely on the wet skin and even form some foam while rinsing. The smell of the product is very nice, but hard to describe for me.

Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub

I love this body scrub and I almost used it up already. My bf uses it aswell, so it seems it will not be long-lasting. The best part is of corse that it is free from microbeads! Jungle Botanics Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub retails for 23.90 US$ from Wishtrend. If you want to check it out don’t forget to check out the Wishtrend monthly vouchers in order to save some money on your order and get freebies. I also have a list on all the products I reviewed from Wishtrend there. Also keep in mind their friend-referral program: You can receive a 5 Us$ referral coupon if you use my invitation code 17939205 upon registration and you’ll receive this voucher immediately.There will be a specific field in your registration form called “friends invitation program” where you can put the code mentioned above.

Review: Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter | TesterKorea

7. March 2016


This is round No. 2 for the 1st Realtesters from TesterKorea. I have prepared three more reviews (see my Instagram) for you which I will be sharing within the next days. I will start with the Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter. I love body butters / lotions / milk / oils. I’m using them after each and every shower…since I have dry skin and I love hot showers, which makes the skin even drier (I know…but I simply cannot stand a lukewarm shower except in hot summers).

Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter

First, some information about TesterKorea: if you know me and my blog for some time you will know that TesterKorea is my favorite online retailer for larger Kbeauty hauls. I’ve purchased products from them many times and they never failed me. Also, they are quite popular for offering many free samples and having a LARGE variety of samples for sale aswell. If you do not know a specific products and you want to test it first the place to recommend is TesterKorea. Also, they have a huge amount of different products from many brands, so you can be sure to find what you are looking for in most cases. Unlike other online retailers they do not offer free shipping, though, but their shipping is based on weight. The cheap prices of the products themselves totally balances the shipping costs in my eyes – especially for larger hauls. They even have a specific topic where you can request a product, if it is newly launched. They are also quite fast in listing the latest products from most brands. Considering the fact that I know they are a reliable retailer and have a good reputation makes me even more happy that I’m part of the 17 members of their 1st Real Tester round-up. I linked my previous reviews at the end of this post.

Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter

Nature Republic is a Korean brand founded in 2009 and using the slogan ‘journey to nature’. They are one of many Korean brands addressing natural cosmetics and their consumers. One of their most famous products is probably the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel, which comes in this huge container and is super affordable, too. I haven’t tried many products from that brand although many of their products really look interesting…somehow I decide to buy rather from Innisfree and Etude House in the end. And the moment I’m deciding to buy something from Nature Republic it is usually sold out…:D

The Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter comes in a cute jar in a peachy-pink color, showing some illustrations of peaches as well. The illustration fits nicely to the key ingredient of this body butter, which is obviously peach. The descriptions on the jar in Korean, but if you peel up the sticker on the bottom of the jar it reveals the English description. I discovered this after I made the pictures for this post. You can check the ingredients of the body butter on COSDNA. Taking a look at the list you will spot that the body butter contains kernel extract, leaf extract, fruit extract, and flower extract of peach, which have great moisturizing properties. But it also contains cocoa seed butter, which is a great moisturizer, too. Furthermore, Glycerin provides the skin with moisture. A second closer look will reveal two silicones in the ingredients as well (Cylclohexasiloxa and Cyclopentasiloxane). It is common for body products that they contain silicones, because they have the effect of making the skin smoother. The disadvantage of silicones in body creams is that they build a layer on top of your skin instead of sinking into it. This causes a peeling of the product after a while.

Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter

The texture of the Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter is thick and silky-smooth. It feels like hardened butter, but can be spread nicely on the skin, making it soft. The body butter smells amazingly of peaches. I do not like too artificial peach scent, but I liked this one. I already used it excessively on my body and it really makes the skin silky smooth (silicons), but also feels moisturizing. I had the peeling problem in areas like elbows and knees, where the product started to build crumbles after a couple of hours, especially when I rubbed with my fingers onto the skin. Apart from this I cannot say anything negative about this body milk.

Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter

Nature Republic Body & Nature Provence Peach Body Butter reminds me of the body butters by The Body Shop. I loved and still love using these, but this one from Nature Republic comes close to them as well. The scent is divine. If you like peach scent you will be in peach- heaven here. The design is cute, too. It retails on TesterKorea for 13500 Won (~11.44 US$) for 150 ml of volume.

Review: Dove DermaSpa Goodness³ Body Lotion

12. November 2015

I’m one of these persons you loves a really hot shower, and I know, it is not good for your hair or skin to shower too hot, but I simply love it! That’s also one of the reasons why my skin is usually especially dry after taking a shower. But it is also one of the reasons why I started to use body lotions or creams or oils regulary after showering. Many people skip body lotion because they are too lazy, but somehow I got acustumed to it and it doesn’t bother me anymore. Therefore, I’ve tried really many different kinds of body moisturizers in my life and I also used Dove Body Lotions before. When I received the new Dove DermaSpa Goodness³ Body Lotion (or Dove DermaSpa Intensiv Verwöhnend³ Body Lotion, as it is called in German) for reviewing I was super excited to see how the new body lotion performs.

Dove DermaSpa

Dove is a brand within the Unilever Company, one of the biggest brands worldwide with more than 400 brands in health and wellbeing. Most of you are probably familiar with the brand Dove anyways. Dove has body and skincare products within its product range and the Dove DermaSpa line is their newest addition to their bodycare line. There are two versions for the Dove DermaSpa, the Uplifted+ for a lifting and tightening effect and the Goodness³ for moisturizing, from which I’m reviewing the Body Lotion here. The name promises a super hydrating and nourishing cream, which makes your skin feel satin-like and soft. It uses a formula with omega oil together with the so called Cell-Moisturisers®, key moisturising actives compressed from natural seed oils such as sea buckthorn oil. This deep skincare formula is paired with a Home Spa experience by using fragnances from vanilla, coconut and musk. Although the packaging of the Dove DermaSpa Goodness³ Body Lotion is simple like most Dove packagings, it has some golden lettering and a light golden cap which makes it look a bit more luxurious than the other products from Dove.


Dove DermaSpa

What I found a bit dissapointing was the ingredients list though. You can find the ingredients on the official Dove web pages and I added it to COSDNA >>here<<. One of the main ingredients is Dimeticone, which is a silicone. This explains already that we will experience a super soft skin. I don’t mind silicons in my body care and in general I’m not really picky with my ingredients, but I expected more than silicons from a so called “home spa experience”. Also, considering that, the second problem with body lotions and silicons is, that they may flake, since the cream does not penetrate your skin fully but lies ontop of the skin. In my eyes, a body lotion has to penetrate completelly into the skin and if it does not or takes longer to absorb it should not flake at any time.



Dove DermaSpa

At that point, when I discovered the silicon my excitement was lowered drastically, but still, I gave the Dove DermaSpa Goodness³ Body Lotion a chance. Let’s start with the scent: a really lovely vanilla-sweet scent, but not too strong or bothering. It has the perfect amount of scent for a body products. The texture of the body lotion is a white creamy one. It spreads easily and leaves the skin as promised silky and softAND luckily: no flaking! I experienced flaking a couple of times while I used this body lotion after all :/ I was really happy about that! Nevertheless, the Dove DermaSpa Goodness³ Body Lotion doesn’t absorb completelly and leaves kind of a tacky feeling on the skin.


Dove DermaSpa

Despite the ingredients list and the tacky feeling the Dove DermaSpa Goodness³ Body Lotion leaves on the skin I do like this body lotion. EDIT: I used it up and I didn’t like that it started flaking occasionally! Definitively, it is not my HG body lotion, but it is good and useable for every day use and body care. I also do like the scent of it, to be honest. Since it is available in Germany at your local drug store for 4.95 € it is also affordable and easily accessible for me, but probably also for many other countries. If I would repurchase a Dove DermaSpa Body Lotion I would try the Uplifted+ version next time. I should prevent the signs of aging first ;D Did you try the products from the new Dove DermaSpa line already?

Review: Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda

9. July 2015

Although I’m doubtful about diet and slimming products I have a curiosity to try them out. Most of you have probably heard of these shaping gels, which heat up once applied and promise to make the skin more elastic. Too Cool For School offers another possibility with the Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda, a foam product using air bubbles to stimulate your skin. Oh, just in case you were wondering about the lack of reviews in the last days: my PC crashed and I have not figured out how to make it work again. I will send in the part which I suspect is damaged and hopefully everything is fine afterwards again…Unfortunately, I had and still have to retake all the images for the upcoming reviews :'(…

Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda

The design cosmetic brand Too Cool For School is a Korean brand, known for a unique packaging design. Their products are in the mid-pricey region and slightly more expansive than Etude House for example. The packaging design of the Too Cool For School products is always very creative and unique. I mentioned probably a thousand times how much I love their packaging design, and hands down, the design of the Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda is not only super sexy, but fits perfectly to the advertised purpose of it. As you can see it displays a female body in lingerie and she has a super skinny waist, too :D

  Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda

Of course, Too Cool For School provides us with a detailed English description as well (you can click to enlarge the image below). The Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda has 4 in 1 functions: tightening, firming, massage and soothing. The sparkling air spray is a combination of carbonated water and gel for a new bubble experience (you remember the carbonated bubble face wash I reviewed some time ago?). Moreover, the product contains patented ingredients that help to construct a body line. You can check the ingredient list on COSDNA, too. You will see a bunch of plant and fruit extracts mentioned. The packaging states that the beauty ingredients used here are “body toning patented ingredient SLIMLITE, Mate Tea Extract“. The Mate extract contains caffeine, which is the key ingredient of almost all body toning products. The patented tightening ingredient used here is called FRUCTAN, which is known to improve the elasticity. All these ingredients should help to improve cellulite and increase the firmness of the skin, but it also states in the description that the reduce of cellulite is a temporary effect and may depend on the individual. They show some reviews on Too Cool For Schools official site and you can also see some before and after images there.

Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda

As I said, this product is a sparkling air bubble spray which comes in a spraying pump in the same design as the cardboard packaging. It has a clear cap and a regular foam-spray dispenser, which might be familiar to you if you have used hair foams before.

  Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda

The bottom of the spraying bottle shows the production date of the product, which has a shelf-life of 12 months after opening. The volume is 150 ml. Before you use the Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda you have to shake it vigorously, otherwise only cold air is released. It says to shake it more than 10 times, spray it on your palms and massage it on the desired areas of your body. Since the foam contained air bubbles you have in total 30 seconds to massage it into your skin before the bubbles have disappeared. You can see in the image below how airy the foam is. It disappears quickly and a thin film of white emulsion remains, which can be massaged until fully absorbed. It also absorbs quickly, but it leaves a bit of a tacky feeling. The air bubble released out of the bottle is very cooling and the carbonated air bubbles tickle the skin, so be prepared for it in case you want to try it yourself. Did I see any changes while using the Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda? Honestly, no! I never had much of cellulite in my youth and even now it is not that bad honestly, but I didn’t feel my skin be firmer either. I loved the cooling properties of the air bubbles though and I can imagine that it has soothing properties and makes the skin feel tighter for the time of the cooling, but it is no long term effect.

Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda

I personally would not repurchase the Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda, but if you had good experience with similar products it might be worth a try. The cooling effect is definitively nice for summer time, but in winter I would prefer the heating body gels :D The air bubbles are fun to try and I can imagine that it has some massage effect due to the sparkling bubbles. Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda retails for 17000 won from the official page (~17 US$). You can also receive it from W2Beauty for 24.96 US$. The Too Cool For School Skinny Body Soda is also available on testerkorea for 13600 Won (14 US$).

Unboxing: Rossmann Schön für Mich Box June

25. June 2015

When I received the Rossmann Schön für Mich Beauty Box June I was super excited about it, since the previous Schön für Mich box in May was surprisingly good, and I started to unwrap the package eagerly! Rossmann Schön für Mich Box is a monthly beauty box by the German drugstore company Rossmann. The beauty box contains some of the Rossmann beauty brands, but also other known drugstore brands. Let’s see what I received in June:

Rossmann Schön für Mich Box June

Another beautifully designed box with purple flowers! These boxes are so pretty and definitively nothing to throw away afterwards! Inside the box the product description card with the same flower print is waiting to be opened.

Rossmann Schön für Mich Box June

The Rossmann Schön für Mich Box was pretty heavy again and filled completely with products. There were a total of ten different products inside, a mix of Rossmann beauty products and known drugstore brands. For the price of 5 € these boxes are amazing!

Rossmann Schön für Mich Box June

Again, all the items are fullsized products and apart from the product description you’ll find discount coupons for all the products, if you want to repurchase them.

Rossmann Schön für Mich Box June

Here are the products I received with the Rossmann Schön für Mich beauty box June:

Isana Dry-Shampoo

This dry shampoo is from the Rossmann brand Isana. I like dry shampoo a lot, especially in summer for camping or festivals. Or simply if you have bangs and don’t want to wash the hair every day. This one will definitively be used.

Kneipp Showering Balm Almond-Blossom

I had the almond blossom body oil from the same line and I’m addicted to the scent! I’m very happy about this shower gel and it really feels hydrating on the skin, too!

Rival de Loop Eyebrow Pencil

This is a brand by Rossmann, too. I’m not a fan of western brow products so far and this is no exception. I like the included brush, but the pencil is too pigmented in order to give a natural look.

Colgate Max White One Optic Toothpaste

I didn’t try this one yet, but I tried other Colgate toothpaste and liked using them. I guess this one will be similar..and you’ll always in need of toothpaste :D

RdeL Young Million Dollar Lips 

A lip lacquer from the Rossmann brand RdeL Young. The color is a pretty cherrypink, which is the color I would have selected from the color options available. One can never have enough lip products :D

Sun Ozon Sunmilk Sensitive SPF 25

This waterproof, fragnance-free sunmilk by Rossmann comes just in time…I’m still waiting for the weather to warm up finally (it is almost Juny and we are still below 20°C! :'( ). It contains Jojoba Oil for dry skintypes, so I’m especially curious how it will be when using it on my skin.

Nivea In-Shower Cleansing Cream and Makeup Remover

I was super excited about this one, because I hate it when my eye makeup is not removed completely why taking a shower in the evening. It is a mild cleanser and it leaves the skin not dryx after using it, but it is not the greatest makeup remover unfortunately.

Aok Daily Moisturizing Cream

This moisturizing cream contains grape extract and plant hyaluron and is supposed to be moisturizing for 24 hours. Looks like an interesting moisturizer, hopefully it will provide enough moisture for me.

Dove Compressed Deo Spray

Usually, I’m buying this deo spay when I’m out of deo, so it is great to have it in this box. The compressed size looks perfect for taking it along in the handbag and/or travelling.

For your Beauty Traceless Hair Ring

Similar to Invisibobble, Rossmann has their own traceless hair ring. They have a good quality and I’m very happy with them and use them daily :D

Rossmann Schön für Mich Box June

I can only repeat myself at this box: although the Rossmann Schön für Mich Box contains only drugstore products the price of 5 € is really great. All the products are fullsized and the box is filled up completely. The box design is pretty, too. All in all, a great value for a fair price! If you love drugstore brands, you will like the Rossmann Schön für Mich beauty boxes, too. The boxes each month are limited though and they are raffling each month to select the persons who will be able to get it. For more information check out facebook. If you are curious for any specific product from this box leave a comment and I will try to write a review.

Review & Giveaway: Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer

29. April 2015

A while ago I reviewed Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer from the company Trusted Health Products and I really did like the facial oils for my daily skincare routine. Today I’m reviewing another product distributed by this company called Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer. This Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer is made of pure botanical oils, like the facial oils I reviewed before. And like last time I have a giveaway for my readers from US, Canada, Europe and Australia at the end of the post!

Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer

Trusted Health Products is a company dedicted to offer the “Purest and most Natural Products available anywhere in the world today”. Their products are GMO-free, 100% Pure & Natural, and have No Additives of any kind. Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer is a body oil , which claims to be the ultimative dry skin solution. Since I have dry skin myself I was really curious about that claim. You’ll find a detailled description for the product >>here<<. As you might have noticed, my version of this body moisturizing oil has another label and also another packaging. They changed the name recently and replaced the dropper bottle with a spraying bottle which is a great idea in my eyes. Nevertheless, the product is still the same, so the properties of this body oil didn’t have been changed. Here is the old bottle:

Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer

The new one comes with a new name and design, which fits better to the facial moisturizer:


You will find the directions and ingredients on the label of the brown glass bottle, too.

Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer

The oil itself is an orange colored, runny oil with a great smell of orange juice. It is as if you are cutting up a fresh orange and smells great and natural and not a bit artificially. The oil is leightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t make the skin feel heavy or greasy. This is a point I would love to stress, because I love how it absorbs!

Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer

What does this Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer promise to us users? Here is a list of the benefits this body oil claims:

-it decreases the appearance of spider veins and blemishes
-it smooths the appearance of rough and scaly areas
-it reduces the appearance of age spots, discoloration and sun spots
-it firms and tones skin’s appearance
– it makes the skin feel clean and conditioned – smooth like silk
– it can use as an underarm deodorant
– it feels like it moisturizes deep down – say goodbye to dry skin
100% pure botanical oils of almond, orange, lime, lemon, olive and avocado
no preservatives, parabens, petroleum-based oils, GMOs, synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, colorings, or additives of any kind

These are a lot of promises, honestly! What I definitively can say, is that I love the short ingredient list consisting only of pure botanical oils. The scent is so natural and fruity, it makes your mouth water (if you love eating oranges at least). The fact that it has no additives is a huge plus, too. I can confirm that the skin feels smooth after using the oil and feels silky. Since the oil isn’t greasy and absorbs fast, the feeling of the skin is quickly noticeable. I say, that body oils always to a great deal in toning and firming the skin, too. I couldn’t observe any other huge changes of my skin, like decreased spider veins or blemishes, spots or discolorations, but my skin doesn’t have much of these problems anyways. The oil is nicely moisturizing, but I used additional moisturizers on super dry spots like ellbow and knee, because I didn’t have the feeling that this body oil was enough for these parts. Nevertheless, all in all, I am pretty amazed (:D) by the Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer, and giving the fact that the oil comes in a spraying bottle I love it even more. There is no better and easier way to put on body oil than with a spraying bottle! A bottle of this body oil contains 100 ml and retails for 39.97 US$.

beauty empties

Graveyard: January and February Empties 2015

28. February 2015

I tried to use up as much as possible, before I by new products in 2015, and for the first two months I did a good efford in also emptying my sample stash. Here are my product empties for January and February and a quick impression on each product. As usual, I didn’t include any sample sachets or masks.

January and February Empties 2015

Frizz Ease Shampoo & Conditioner for curly hair- Repurchase? Maybe.

I used and liked the fullsize of this in the past quite often (these are travelsized tubes), but atm I’m in love with my Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo, that I don’t want to go back to any western brands :D Within the western drug store brands these are still my favourites.

Iope Super Vital VIP kit- Repurchase? No.

I used up the complete items of this kit and I’m really proud I did without changing to another line inbetween. You can find my review of this highly nourishing and moisturizing line >>here<<.

Secret Key Snow White Cream- Repurchase? Yes.

I loved using this. It gave a nice finish to the face and it smells great! The packaging is very pretty, too! Read my review >>here<<.

Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream- Repurchase? Maybe.

I used this eyecream during daytime because I think it is not moisturizing enough to be used at nights. I like the size of this eyecream and the fact that it is really affordable and can be used up in a realistic period. I could imagine repurchasing it, but I would rather try other eye creams first :D Find my review >>here<< .

SXM I Value Body Amoule- Repurchase? No.

This was part of the MeMeBox Diet Box and I was really curious about this ampoule. You take some drops and put it to the desired regions of your body. I could feel the skin being somehow tightened while applying but it did not show any longterm effects for me.

Shiseido Benefiance NutriPerfect Day Cream- Repurchase? No…sigh

This creamy cream is rich in its consistency and hydrates skin nicely. It also contains SPF 15. I enjoyed trying out this tiny tube, but since it is an expensive brand I don’t think that I’ll be repurchasing.

Welcos Confume Argan Treatment Hair Ampoule- Repurchase? YES!

I’m in healthier-hair-heaven since I bought Confume Argan Oil and Confume Treatment Hair Ampoule! My hair has been frizzy and dry since forever, but these products are amazing! This is the first of 5 tiny bottles and I love it! This indeep hair treatment doesn’t need to be rinsed out. It is mixed by a bit water and turns milky and warmer….can be used on wet and dry hair…I will buy more definitively! and I’ll be doing a review for both the argan oil and the treatment soon!

Only you Green Tea Jasmin Moisturizing Body Lotion- Repurchase? No.

I think this was a gift and came together with a shower gel. The scent was really nice. The bodylotion took a bit longer to absorb, though.

Lancome La Vie Et Belle shower Gel- Repurchse? No.

This was a gift with an order. I like the scent, but other than that there is nothing special about this shower gel.

Kneipp Almond Blossom Oil- Repurchse? Yes.

I used up the fullsized bottle of this last year and I loved it and this tiny version is no exception. The scent is soooo nice and it makes the skin feel very soft.

L’Occitane Karite Handcream -Repurchase? I would love to.

This is a rich and nourishing hand cream with a nice scent. There is nothing negative to say about this and I would love to try more handcream from L’Occitane.

Kerasys Moringa Miracle Essence- Repurchase? Yes!

A very nice smelling and softening hair essence which I loved to use. It is not as super effective as the Confume Argan oil, but it is nice for everyday use without making your hair greasy!

Review: Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion

6. August 2014


Another product from Illi, and it is from the same MeMeBox Global No. 11 like the sheet mask I reviewed previously: Illi’s Fresh Moisture Body Lotion. As the name already says, this is a body lotion with a fresh citrus scent. I never ordered a body lotion from a korean brand, because it is much more conventient to use one from a local drugstore – and cheaper, too, but since I received it, I want to share my opinion with you.

Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion

Illi is a Korean skincare brand, part of Amore Pacific group which is known by famous brands like Laneige, Etude House, Innisfree and many more. The products known are mainly focussing on body care, like lotions and body washes. The package design of the Illi products are simple and appear very clean or medical. They have a range of different lotions, each addressing a certain skin type. The lotion can be used on body and face, but I only used it on my body. The Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion is designed for hydrating dry skin and giving it back its elasticity.

This is a deluxe size sample containing 100 ml of the product. The full size product contains 350 ml and comes in a pump bottle. The description is only written in Korean on the backside of the bottle. The material is very sturdy. This is also the reason I would have preferred a pump for this smaller bottle, too, because the plastic is hard to squeeze and a pump would be easier to work with.

The product has a light yellowish color and smells of citrus. The main ingredients according to Illi’s product site are Gingseng for vitality, Yuzu lemon for stimulating and camllia oil for the glow. The product is lightweight and absorbs quickly and leaves no stickiness or greasiness on the skin. After application the skin has a silky soft touch which is very nice. Unfortunatelly, I think it is too light for addressing very dry skin. Since it is designed for moisturing, I was a bit dissapointed about this point. Other then this I really like how the skin feels afterwards.  Again, it is not easy to find Illi products, but you can check out Jolse for this specific body lotion. The full sized product is quite expensive in my eyes and costs 20.98 US$. On W2Beauty or testerkorea you’ll find some other body lotions from Illi, but all are in the same price range.
