I received samples from beauty box subscription Lolabox quite a while ago. I did not manage to snap a picture before finishing the whole stuff so in this post I will be using pictures I found from other blogger.
The samples I received are from different box. I have another full size bottle waiting to be used in my drawer, of different variant. The ones I am going to review today are Vanilla Softening Shower Gel and Green Tea Energizing Shower Gel. I will update the price of full size item when I review the unopened bottle.
The first one I received was Green Tea Energizing Shower Gel. The sample was enough for about a week worth of use. I found the green tea smell to be a little too synthetic, however the fragrance was not too strong so I was fine with it. Cottage seriously needs to change the Energizing part from the name because the smell is way too soft to wake me up lol. The shower gel was in the so-so department, not something I would get in near future, it’s better to stick with the good old Johnson & Johnson baby milk bath. It didn’t leave my skin dried out, it wasn’t moisturizing either.
Next is Vanilla Softening Shower Gel. Now this I totally loathed. The fragrance was too strong for my liking. Don’t get me wrong, I love vanilla scented stuff but this one totally gave me some minor headache. Vanilla should smell softer than this. On the softening aspect, it did nothing. Again, these shower gels are considered drugstore items, so after my experience with the green tea one I didn’t set the bar too high. I am not against drugstore items, in fact I’m a strong advocate to drugstore makeup, there really are some jewels I found in drugstore but these two just didn’t cut it. Would I repurchase? Definitely no. The only good thing from this shower gel is that it didn’t leave my skin scaly. The smell, oh, the smell. Urgh.
I still have a full size bottle of Cottage shower gel that I got from Lolabox anniversary box, I think it’s in Figs. I gotta check again. I hope the last one wouldn’t disappoint me like the previous two.
Anyway, I will come up with mini-reviews soon as I have been sampling a lot of stuff. My reviews will probably on the shorter side but I hope it’s informative enough.
Toodles for now 😉
