I mentioned how many people weren’t happy about this sample. Some people thought it wouldn’t last more than 2 washes because of the Shea Butter or something. I’ve used it a couple times now and still haven’t used up half of it (I broke it in half to use). I think it’s actually a decent size to try the product out. When I was rinsing it off after I got that feeling where you know all the oils were stripped off your body. That’s something I really dislike about bar soaps. I think some people feel like that’s the “clean” feeling but I feel like it is overboard. However, I was surprised to feel that with this soap, maybe 30 seconds after or so, my skin was really soft! I think with the shea butter and goat milk it is highly moisturizing. The smell it leaves on the skin is also delicious… I keep smelling my arm LOL ::nervous::!!

Likes: the awesome scent, very moisturizing.
Dislikes: the initial feeling of natural oils stripped off your body.


Atelier Cologne // Orange Sanguine Fragrance
[[ Atelier Cologne is a niche perfume house based in Paris and New York. Each scent is intended to embody a “singular moment” of memory and experience. We present to you Orange Sanguine, “It was the kind of moment you would want to revisit. Everyone was here, gathered on the terrace for breakfast, and the scent of fresh oranges was diffusing in the yellow heat. A symphony of their laughter and waves hitting the cliffs played in the air.” — 30ml / $60.00 & 200ml / $165.00 ]]
I mentioned in the unboxing how I really love the scent. I had said that I thought the scent has a slight bitterness like the peel of the orange, but not in the bad sense. A really great scent for the summer time! If I didn’t have as many bottles of perfume as I have now I might seriously think about purchasing this. I do wish we got a bigger size for sample, but I’m glad I got to try this out though!

Likes: lovely scent if you don’t mind citrus scents.
Dislikes: none!

”I’m sorry, I can’t make it, gotta wash my hair,” is not what I would say to my friends after I use this. I thought it’d be help give some moisture to my ends because it’s a bit dead. While washing it out of my hair I thought it was helping a bit but once it was dry, so was my hair. It felt a bit brittle after use and I was not happy. I had to use Kao Essential to help put some moisture back into my hair the next day.

Likes: none.
Dislikes: made my hair probably drier than when using drugstore brands.

I received French 125 and I’m glad because I would’ve picked this colour out of the ones available! The colour is actually quite nice and it’s something I won’t mind wearing daily. The problem I had with this gloss is the glitter. They’re quite chunky and when you press your lips together you can feel it. When it dries it leaves a layer of the glitter on your lips. It’s also not one I would recommend if you have dry lips. Might have to exfoliate the lips a bit since it brings out the flakies. Because of these things it made the gloss a very average one.

Likes: a very wearable colour, lasts long enough.
Dislikes: glitter is too chunky and leaves layer on lips, a bit too sticky for my liking, shows flakies.
