You Disappoint Me: The Body Shop Mango Body Butter

Do you enjoy using body butters? These products are so luxurious because they are so rich and creamy, not to mention they smell really good. 

However, one thing that I find disappointing about body butters are their greasy and sticky feel on the skin. Whenever I use one, I feel like dusts start to stick all over me. It is really uncomfortable and annoying. 

One body butter I have never tried to finish is The Body Shop Mango Body Butter.

I initially loved its ripe mango smell. I find it appealing and that mango is one of my favorite fruits. But this hype faded a few uses into it. The icky feel on the skin is simply bothering...

Therefore, I decided that no matter how I love mangoes, this body butter simply has to go. Ever Bilena's body butters were so much better but I think they discontinued it already.

Take note though that some body butters are not as thick as The Body Shop's therefore they might feel lighter on the skin.

Have a nice day everyone!

Skin Care Product On Review: Nivea Hand Age Defying Q10 Plus

Our hands are no less than prone to sun damage but unfortunately, they are often neglected when putting on sun protection on the skin. As a result, as we can see on others and maybe on ourselves, the hands show signs of sun damage in forms of sun spots, uneven skin tone, and even wrinkles. 

Wouldn't it be horrendous to see our face tight and firm while our hands look icky and wrinkled?

Therefore, we must also care for our hands as we do for the rest of our face and body. As for me, I do this by using Nivea Hand Age Defying Q10 Plus.

 It is a hand cream made to protect the skin against sun damage and early signs of skin aging. 

This product never leaves my purse so that I can replenish my hand with moisture whenever I need it.

As I only use it on my hands, this tube will last me for months.
