Haul + First impressions: Skinstore.com (Nuxe ultra nourishing lip balm + Phyto 9 daily ultra nourishing botanical cream)

On December 12, 2013 by Michelle Ng

Hi everyone,

 

I have always loved ordering from Skinstore.com because of their never-ending (well, almost) 20% off discount! I used to get my Clarisonic brush heads from there as well. This purchase however, I had my eyes on these two items.

Nuxe ultra nourishing lip balm and Phyto 9 daily ultra nourishing botanical cream. Two “moisturizers”, one for lips and another for hair! If you could tell from my blog, I am crazy about moisturizing myself because somehow every part of my body is always dehydrated.

Nuxe ultra nourishing lip balm costs me around S$22 and Phyto 9 daily ultra nourishing botanical cream costs me around $30. Both are definitely pricey even after the 20% discount but I believe these are worth the investment, from all the raves I have heard. Let’s hope I am right!

I heard about Phyto hair nourishing cream from Lisa Eldridge’s Youtube video but hers was the Phyto 7 cream. I believe Phyto 9 cream is reacher than 7 cream.

“This unique formula, for dehydrated hair, will restructure damaged hair without leaving it oily or weighing it down. Its in-depth nourishing properties revitalize, condition and provide daily protection, leaving hair manageable and soft to the touch.”

Ingredient list:

Althaea Oficinalis Extract (Mucilage Végétal), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Arctium Majus Root Extract (Bardane), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract (Romarin), Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract (Sauge), Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Leaf Extract (Saule), Hypericum Perforatum Extract (Millepertuis), Lecithin (Soja), Sodium Dehydroacetate*, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol*, Parabens (Butyl, Ethyl)*.

Benefits:

  • Hydrates, protects, nourishes and repairs hair.
  • Helps to combat frizz and prevent split ends.
  • Recommended for hair that is medium to coarse, porous, split, and/or dehydrated.

First impressions:

All I need is a pea size of this and I run this cream all over my palms, before running my palms through my hair. I like to use this on my towel-dried, semi-damp hair. As my damp hair dries, this cream leave a beautiful sheen to my locks, making them look healthy. My hair ends are pretty dry on its own due to my previous hair dye and perming of hair. I like using this cream to make my hair looks healthy and make them feel moisturized.

First impressions:

This jelly like balm can be quite thick and hard to spread on the lips. I like to warm this between my fingers first just so to give myself less work when slapping them on the lips. Being a big fan of the lip balm stick (pictured above), I decided to opt for this balm for more moisture at night. I apply quite a lot on my lips so that I wake up to supple, well moisturized lips.While the texture is a downside, the thickness lock in the moisture on my lips when I have my good night’s sleep.

 

 

Thanks for reading ~
