Essie Nail Polish in Find Me An Oasis - Perfect Summery Light Blue

Hi girlies! I've been in love with painting my toes in this particular shade of Essie nail polish in Find Me An Oasis. I absolutely love how fresh and clean it looks! It's different from painting your nails in white. I sometimes find that white nails kind of look like white-out... but if that's your thing, then you do you! It's just my personal opinion.

I bought this nail polish at a complete steal at the L'oreal Sale in Toronto last October when I visited. If you're interested, I blogged about it in this blog post :P
Sorry for showing my toes.... eekkkkss!! By the way, this is my new home slippers that I bought from Muji. It's oh-so-comfortable... I totally recommend it! :P

Much love.

Boots Fashion Survival Cooling Massage Foot Gel Review

Hi girlies! 

I'm all about those foot creams. I absolutely hate it when the skin on my feet becomes scaly... eeks!! I bought the Boots Fashion Survival Cooling Massage Foot Gel last time I visited Bangkok. My girlfriend recommended it and she said she loved to buy these as little souvenirs. I got tempted and picked one up for myself to try. It has 100ml. The tube is light and easy to carry. I find that the fact that it's shaped like a foot is super cute... lol. 

It states that it's "with icy menthol to revive feet and legs." It's exactly what it says it is - a cooling gel, and when applied to the skin, there's a slight cooling effect which is quick pleasure. While it provides some moisture, the effect is not long lasting. After several minutes, my feet would feel quite dry again. Maybe this product is meant to be a quick way to revive the feet after a long day of shopping in high heels or something. But I expected it to be more moisturizing and actually make my feet smoother. 

I'm also a bit disappointed that the product is already 1/3 done even though I haven't used it for too long. Now what I liked about it is the menthol scent... I find it to be super fresh!

Effectiveness: Quick way to revive your feet after a long day of shopping in high heels... but the effect is not long lasting.
Price: I remember it to be quite inexpensive
Packaging: Light and cute
Scent: Love that menthol freshness
Repurchase? Most likely not
Verdict: This product didn't impress me. I've actually used another foot cream that I absolutely love and work a lot better than this. I'll share it next time :)

Much love.

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Review

Hi girlies!

I've been using the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel since last summer... and I've been meaning to blog about it, but never got around to it. I tell you this stuff is literally a steal. You can find this selling at HKD 2x in Hong Kong. I recall buying mine at Bonjour, but you can get this at SaSa or just anywhere. I think you can even find this at a cheaper price in Korea.

What it is is just an aloe vera gel. I use this as a sleeping mask at night as added hydration. It's also useful for cooling the skin down after sunburns. Sometimes I use this on my body as well as my face. It's just so cheap that I let myself use as much as want and don't feel bad about it. 

The texture is a little sticky at first after application, but the product gets absorbed into the skin relatively quickly so it doesn't bother me. The product has a refreshing scent.

Effectiveness: Added hydration on top of my normal skincare routine. Multipurpose.
Price: Simply can't be beaten
Repurchase: Sure, why not?
Verdict: Bang for the buck!

Much love.
