Clean it Zero Banila Co - Review

June 22, 2016
Hi skittle biscuits,
I am back with another review! This post is for the Clean it zero makeup remover balm. After hearing so many good things about it, I decided that I should give it a go.

My skin type: Combination skin, oily t-zone and dry patches on cheeks

Anyways, on to the review. The product comes in this insanely cute pink box and the jar is a bit frosty looking with a pink metal lid and it also comes with a mini plastic scoop for you!

You will find the scoop really useful because the product is actually a solid form rather than the typical liquid cleanser. This makes it super great for traveling as well because you don't have to worry about it leaking all over your luggage! YAY!

Applying this feels on the balm-y side, try to imagine a sherbet consistency. Like most Korean beauty products, it comes scented. It is a light floral/citrus smell, so if you don't like scented products, just be aware of that.

I found that I really love to use this on my lips for those difficult matte lipsticks and also my skin. I try to steer clear of the eye area and go in with my Neautrogena eye makeup remover for that. But the thing I truly love about this cleanser is the feeling of my skin afterwards. It doesn't leave it feeling dry and tight like normal cleansers.

Oh and did I mention that it doesn't drip down your arm while you are exfoliating?

My overall score is a 9/10. I would definitely buy again after I finish my jar. The downfall is the counter real estate it takes up. But I guess that is a good thing because you get more bang for your buck!

I bought mine on memebox.com for $16. You can use my link/code for 20% off your first purchase.

Crossfit - Is it for me?

June 09, 2016

Heyyy skittle biscuits,
So lately, I have been really into fitness and health and I signed up for a free week of cross fit that my cousin introduced to me.

The site is a little slow and laggy, but just be patient. It is totally worth a free week of crossfit. The first day which was on Saturday, was super good. I kept myself at an easy pace and was still sore for 3 days after. My next session was Wednesday, this workout was definitely harder than Saturdays class. I was basically hobbling when I left. My knee and hip was in total pain from running and throwing this massive ball at the wall. It is now the next day and I am super sore. My right arm is a bit more sore, I think this is due to me catching the huge ball with my right arm more. The instructor reminded us to stretch a lot and don't be afraid to use our muscles even though we are sore. I might go for a light jog tonight.

Is it for me? I shall keep you updated!

Follow up 6/16/16.

Final decision: I won't be joining cross fit because I don't think its for me. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty fun during those two sessions. But the moves were really explosive and I am not sure if the movements are good for me. Particularly my hips and knee felt really weird. Not to mention it is pretty pricey to get membership, almost $15/class!
