A little update on you all,
What’s up fam! It’s the third week of school and I’m sorry if I don’t blog on a regular basis like before due to how hectic the work load in med school and I had to adjust on how I budget my time between school, study outs, gym and my love for blogging.
Back to the regular scheduled program
So last august 8, bath and blends ph sent me their Argan oil and green tea hand and body lotion and their natural lip balm and Although I didn’t receive it first hand (because the products were shipped at my house and I’m currently elsewhere so that’s convenient) but my mom immediately fell in love with the hand and body lotion. Last August 10 I saw it first hand and my mom was right.
It was a great timing actually since most of my days will be spent inside the classroom and as you can tell, the humidity of the air will be dry and not good with my skin and lips and I’m so excited to share this to you guys on my experiences with these products during my first week in med school
The lotion comes with a pump bottle which is pretty convenient for me since I’m always on the go and I always apply lotion whenever I’m commuting. You’ll also see the net wt and the ingredients of the product which is a plus for me because I’ll be assured that the product doesn’t have any harsh chemicals.
When it comes to the lip balm, I’m a little disappointed with it because I really don’t prefer lip balms that comes with this type of packaging. I find it very unsanitary most especially if I didn’t disinfect my hands firsthand. One thing that I do appreciate is that the packaging is made out of plastic instead of glass because I’ve had that experience one time where I broke one of my make up products because of the glass packaging.
So the lotion has that consistency which is not that runny but at the same time not too thick. Upon squirting it, I was shocked that the product wasn’t white compared to other hand and body lotions out in the market. The scent of the lotion can be compared to satsuma body butter from the body shop and I was excited and super pumped. I used the lotion every morning before class and I’ve definitely felt that my hands are very moist from 8am to 12 noon. One down side of this product is that the scent of the lotion wears off for an hour after applying the lotion which is a bummer because I really love the tangerine scent of the lotion but the rest from the packaging to the product quality, I could guarantee that I love this lotion (and my mom loves it too lol)
For the lip balm, The first thing that I’ve noticed when I’ve opened the product packaging was the strong orange scent. For the application, it was hard getting the product out and it had to come to a point where I need to scrape off the product in order to use it which is the one thing that I find unsanitary because you have to use your fingers instead of a tube packaging where you get to apply the product directly with ease. I’ve also noticed that there’s a stinging feeling upon application which is weirdly satisfying for me.
I would like to talk about the lotion first. Overall, I believe that this product is my personal favorite and I’ll get to use it a lot since It’s portable and compact, it retains moisture and it’s made from all natural ingredients. If I were to rate this product, It’ll be an 8.5 out of 10 for me.
With the lip balm, I would appreciate this product if it’s in a tube packaging. It was a little hard to get the product off the packaging and not to mention quite unsanitary. Quality wise of the balm, I did appreciate on how it moisturize my lips and somehow wish that they could do different colors on this one. I might give this product a 6 out of 10.
