Is it really February already? Oh, how time flies! This year I thought I’d introduce a little series onto my blog and share with you my monthly hits and misses so I’d get a chance to talk more about the products I use on a day-to-day basis. I love trying new products and a lot of the times, I end up really liking them and repurchasing them later on. But of course, I’ve had my fair share of heartbreaks… so I thought I’d spare you the pain with these little reviews!
The Tasmanian Soap Company Goats Milk Bar Soap in No.6 Refreshing (not pictured) – I’m not usually a fan of bar soaps but I came across this company when I was in Hobart, Tasmania last June and I really wanted to try their products. No. 6 is lemongrass and lime-scented, which smells super refreshing! I loved it that the bar soap had lots of exfoliating beads that felt so good on the skin. My only issue with this soap is that it left my skin feeling a little bit dry after showers, which I read is a problem with bar soaps in general. Nothing a little bit of body butter won’t solve.
Yves Rocher Cherry Bloom Shower Gel – I got a bottle of this at a really great price on Sephora.sg and I was so glad that I liked it! Buying scented products online can be risky because you never really know how it will turn out until you receive your package in the mail. This shower gel smells wonderfully sweet, yet not overpowering. It doesn’t lather as much but feels lovely on the skin. Unfortunately, the smell doesn’t linger long, and I have to admit I prefer my Bath & Body Works shower gels over Yves Rocher ones. This was a hit for January, but I don’t think I will be repurchasing it anytime soon.
Urban Decay Naked Concealer in Medium – Behold, my new favourite concealer!! I’ll be doing a more in depth review of this later on but for now, I’d just like to profess my love for this goodness in a tube. It feels so comfortable on my skin and provides just the right amount of coverage. Definitely the biggest hit of the month!
Yves Rocher Ecolabel Radiance Shampoo – I wanted to like this one so much, especially so since it’s eco-friendly. But alas, this one’s such a big miss in my books. To be fair, it does what it’s supposed to do as shampoo, which is, well, cleaning my hair. But it leaves my hair feeling dry and lifeless, which is not something I’ve experienced with shampoo before. I’d very much want to explore more eco-friendly products, but I think I’ll do a lot more research before I make my next purchase.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Whisky – Ah, what a waste! I’ve heard so much about this product but it disappointed me on one aspect: it smudges. The one thing I thought it wouldn’t do, but it did. I have to admit, I LOVE how this looks on my eyelids – it gives my eyes just the right amount of smokyness for my daytime looks. But this will not last in the humidity in Singapore and smudges all over my eyelids. I’m running out of hope. When will I find my perfect pencil eyeliner?
