This is quite a huge tub of scrub! And I am glad I bought it (sorry luggage, I know you have suffered with all the weight I put you through). The seeds are just about the right texture for a good scrub (body, too harsh for face). Passed the deo-pits test beautifully, without causing irritation to skin.

This managed to help to prevent ingrown hair too. I use this every other day - I tend to have dry skin on my legs, sometimes it gets scaly and started peeling. With regular scrub, and top with a good lotion after that, it keeps the peeling at bay.

The scent is refreshing as well, I like the woody smell. Rinses off very easily, no greasy leftovers. Does not cause sensitivity too. I have one more use before bidding it goodbye, and I find the tub pretty good for recycling. Like, keeping my cotton pads, or storing my "bedak sejuk" (rice powder).

One of my treasure finds from Boots Bangkok :) I got it because I love the smell of rosewater. And of course, it was on sale.

It didn't sting or cause redness even when I wipe it over my eyes. 150ml finished pretty quickly if used twice a day; the cotton loved this stuff!

Left my skin smelling rather sweet, but did not linger on. 

Overall it gave my skin some moisture, and with cotton pad, usually remove some traces of dirt. And skin felt silky smooth.

I must say as much as I like this, this is not a necessity for me (if only it hydrates a little more). But I wouldn't re-purchasing this if on sale again. Could do a great mid-day refresh.

The clear bottle is a good indicator of how much product is left.

So vintagey right? My eyes fell in love with the look of the bottle. And when I read the description, my brain fell in love with musk, jasmine (omg jasmine!) and bulgarian rose.

I think it would look good on my dresser, don't you think? ;)

Want Want Want, But Too Many Things Already!  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Spring cleaning remains one of the most horrifying experience for me, because I am a hoarder! I don't throw things (if they look pretty / cute); and can seriously accumulate over the years. It can get really stressful. 

I sat down and after much self debate; conclusion is that - I really do not have a lot of time to blog and write proper reviews. Work has always been top priority (pays for my living yo) and this alone eats up alot of my time. And, now that I'm married; one more chunk of time goes to family.

Hence, I finally decided to throw away those fancy packagings and empty jars / bottles. If I can squeeze in time to blog, bonus for me :) If not, then no point keeping them and eating up my space at home.

Heavy hearted, but I just chucked out bags of stuffs. I'm not very convinced that I could continue throwing though..

Okay, getting to my wardrobe now. At the same time, resisting the temptation for these brushes!

I'm finding it difficult to fork out money these days! Whatever is happening to me...
