I usually buy a lot of items at once so I wanted to share the new additions to my routine!

Quality First Special Set

First I want to share the Quality First Tokubestu Gentei Set. This one was released for the New Years season and is basically a value set the was about $10 (925 yen). It included 7 of the Moisture Quality first face masks and 7 of the Queen’s Premium Mask, a total value of about $13~15 depends on where you buy it.

Quality First Fukubukuro

It’s not the best deal but at least it saves a bit of money and contains some great masks!! A whole 2 weeks worth to help me survive the cold winter months.

Lush Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo

I usually use Lush products at the gym because there is a lush store near my gym. I love their shampoos and have been going down the line trying each one. Next on my list is their Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo! I really liked the smell at the store and can’t wait to use it.

Lush New Charity Pot

Again, this product is for when I go to the gym. I tend to use lotion right after taking a shower because I heard it improves the absorption as well as moisturizing effect of lotion! And since I’m not a huge fan of using it at home I tend to use lotion at the gym. I bought the small size to try it out first but I’m pretty sure this won’t disappoint!

Review – Weleda Skin Food

Weleda Skin FoodI randomly received this Weleda Skin Food as a gift and wasn’t sure about the brand. It’s the first time I tried a Weleda product and I was pleasantly surprised with the performance. This lotion is made with pansy, calendula and rosemary extracts. It’s also all natural which is great for anyone who is concerned with artificial ingredients. Another huge plus is it’s made without animal testing! All around the product had me interested after I researched it a bit.

My Experience

This lotion has a very dense texture and to be honest I wasn’t that happy with my first trial. I hated the texture and I am not a fan of the strong citrus smell. BUT after trying it out a few times it really began to grow on me. The fact that you can use this lotion all over your body is great as well. Their manufacturer website says the top uses are:

  • Dry hands, elbows & feet
  • Chapped lips
  • Cuticle care
  • Soothe scratches
  • Highlight cheekbones
  • Soothe skin irritations
  • Treat split ends
  • Brings world peace (just kidding)

Well… Surprisingly for the first 6 items I was extremely happy with the results. It definitely helps with dry skin during the winter (since I started using it my skin is so much better!). I believe it’s a great on the go lotion as well because of it’s versatility, I mean you can even use it as chapstick. I have yet to try the split ends and world peace part but… maybe on my second bottle 🙂

That being said, I’m still not a huge fan of the smell. I’m planning to try a few more products to see if the smell is different but regardless I would definitely buy this lotion again and have already added it to my favs list. I think it’s also a great gift if you’re not sure what to buy someone because it can work for both male and females.
