Product Review; Crystal Care Nail Polish Remover Pads

Hello,
Who else is excited about the weekend?
Weekends are probably the best times for manicures and pedicures.

Here’s a quick review of a product you might find useful for your manicure/pedicure section.

A friend gave me this lovelies, it was sent to her from either France, or UK or so(I can’t remember). I have used something similar to these some years back by a brand called Orise Avise from France too.
Anyways down to the review…

Product Description and Claim;
Non drying, regular conditioning nail polish remover pads.

My Observation;

It comes in a pack that contains 10 individually packed pieces of cotton pads, which are moist in nature. I like the way they are packaged individually, that way each cotton pads gets to retain it’s moisture. 
I must say, although the smell is quite strong, but it has a candy-like aftermath smell which i really like , as it takes off the strong alcoholic odor.

Before use

These are my nails after cleaning. I used just one one cotton pad to clean all the fingers on one hand (already started using it before I took the pictures above), and from the cotton pad you can see that it could still accommodate some more nail polish.

After use

What I like most about this product is that, unlike a normal nail polish remover I can carry it around or even on a travel without worrying about the risk of it spilling on my clothes and things.

Pros;
• It is quite handy and easy to use.
• It is portable!
If you have an impromptu outing or errand, and you don’t want go out with your nails looking unpleasant, you can just slide one or two pieces inside your bag or pocket and use it in the car or so.
• You don’t have to worry about spilling nail polish remover.
• It leaves a nice candy-like odor on your nails and hand instead of the alcoholic odor.

Cons;
1. It can be harmful to synthetic fabrics, plastics, etc just like every other nail polish remover.
There are no other cons to this product, the only problem is that I don’t know about the availability in the Nigerian market. I really hope it’s available.

(She gave me several packs, so I might be giving out a few).

Who is this product for?
Everyone.

Will I buy it again?
I did not buy this one but if I get to see it, I’ll definitely buy it. This product is truth!

What do you think of this product? Have you ever used it or something similar? Please do share your experience, I’m interested in your thoughts.

Yours sincerely,

Product Review; Forever Living Avocado Face and Body Soap.

FOREVER LIVING AVOCADO SOAP

Hey guys,

Good to have you back on here, how are you doing today?

Summer is ending and we are t close to fall/harmattan, so I left you a number of totally cute outfit ideas you can rock just before the transition, check here.

Anyways, long time no review, I guess you must have noticed this though.

So today I’ll be reviewing the Forever Living Avocado Face and Body Bar.

Unfortunately I don’t have the pictures I took since my phone is faulty you can check here. But this is what it looks like (Update: I’ve gotten my phone back so I decided to put up the pictures).

To be honest I tend to be a little bit biased towards brands that infuse nature into their skin care products maybe because nature in its raw form or products with natural ingredients are what works best for my skin with little to no side effects.

I got this soap from a forever living products distributor in my hostel for #1200 naira back then, It could be less or more.

 

Product Description and Claim;

Natural beauty starts with clean, healthy skin. And clean, healthy skin starts with nature. For over 30 years, Forever Living Products has been a leader in finding and prefecting natural sources for softer, smoother, beautiful skin. Our Avocado Face & Body Soap is a perfect example.

Made with 100% pure avocado butter, Avocado Face & Body Soap loves your skin, moisturizing as it cleans with the natural rejuvenating properties of this powerful fruit. Avocado offers relief for almost every skin type, gently clenseing oily skin with no irritation to keep pores clear and healthy. For dry, sensitive skin, it smoothes quickly and penetrates to nourish and moisturize.

And because it’s a moisturizer and a cleanser, Avocado Face and Body Soap continues working after you bathe. The fresh citrus scent is a gentle reminder that it’s helping to keep your skin soft, supple and healthy all day long.

Pros;

  1. It’s cleansing effect.

It deeply cleanses the skin, removes dirt , leaving your skin squeaky-clean and feeling very smooth. It is also very effective in removing makeup.

Often times when I use the soap, I barely see the need to make use of a facial cleanser.

  1. It is mild enough to go on your face.

Yes it is. I’m very selective with what I put on my face because it is tends to be more sensitive the other parts of my body and often times I don’t like putting soap especially bar soaps on my face because it tends to be too harsh and drying for my skin, however this soap was not harsh and I had no reactions on my face or any other part of my skin.

 

Cons;

  1. It’s quite pricey.

It’s pretty pricey compared to the average body bar soaps available.

  1. It is not available in stores.

You can only get them from one of the forever living product distributors, this means you can’t get it in stores.

However they have distributors around in most locations and you can also get it online from stores like Jumia or Konga .

Who is this product for?

Normal-Oily-Dry skin, I don’t have oily skin but I think it would be nice for oily skin due to its cleansing effects. For normal to dry skin, this is where my skin falls, and from what I observed, its cleanses your skin without necessarily drying it out.

It however also claims to be good for sensitive skin, I can’t say for sure since I don’t have sensitive skin, nevertheless if it works well for every other category, it should be mild enough for sensitive skin.

This product is unisex; for both the female and male gender alike.

Will I buy it again?

Yes, if I have some extra cash and I want to splurge on my skin, why not?

PS; I have also used their deodorant and lip balm, might put up a review on those too later.

Have you ever used this soap, or any other forever living products? What is your take on their product? I’d like to know your experience as well.

Just before you go, you can also check out my review on Eden Apricot Scrub here.
