REVIEW: LUSH Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas..🎄”. Yes, 2017 is coming to a close and it has been a really good year. To get into the spirits of things I popped out my Lush shower jelly, aptly named Santa’s Belly.

While I’m progressively working through my stash, the product I have is not of the latest packaging. The newest Santa’s Belly is resembling a bit like a Pokeball, though I know it’s meant to look like Santa’s signature costume with the belt.

Did I enjoy it? Yes. Will I want more of this? Why, yes!

REVIEW: Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Moisturising (Red box)

Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Red

Today I’m going to talk about soap. Specifically, the Cow Brand Beauty Soap Kyoshinsha. The one I have is the red box, which is extra moisturising and costs a little bit more than the blue box, which is the regular formula.

In short, after using the product for about 2 months, I’m a fan. I hoarded half a dozen of this from my recent trip back to Tokyo.

Regardless, please read on if you’re interested to know what I felt about this item.  🙂
