Goat Milk Soaps~

Posted by snowbunnytales at 3:07 AM 0 comments
hello! Sorry I've been away for a bit. I'm Still in Asia and without a camera right now >< But I stumbled on some photos of these two brands of goats milk soaps I photographed a while back. I've been using these for a while now~

This first brand is from creamerycreek (CC). I've heard about this brand before, but I didn't really want to order online back then. ginabinawina99 made me want to try them~so I ordered a bunch to try out and I also ordered two for my grandmama. She loves a good bar of soap :) I got her Cleopatra's bath and Honey Almond Oatmeal. I wanted to try these out too, but I thought she'd like those ones the best :)


This second brand is called goatmilkstuff (GMS). This was one of the first few links on google when I googled goat milk soaps. So I looked for some reviews online and on youtube. I didn't find that many reviews, but the ones i did find were positive. So I thought I'd order a few to see how I like them and to maybe compare to creamery creek. I ordered four scents- Black Raspberry, Cider Press, Pink Sugary, and Oatmeal and Honey Scrub. I only ordered half bars and the picture below is showing half of a half bar size. I used up quite a bit already :)



Scent - CC has a lighter scent, which is very soft and nice. The blueberry smells like fresh blueberries. Red Clover tea smells nice too~ it kinda smells like bath and body works Sweat Pea to me. CC's soap base has a very light scent which smells like milk, but it doesn't bother me like GMS's soap Base. I can't really say what GMS base smells like, but it leaves a smell in my shower that I don't really like. It's a scent which I couldn't really smell on the bar of soap or while showering. (keep in mind that I got my mom's nose. we smell things that other people don't smell sometimes). I would say that GMS has a stronger scent, but not in a bad way. I really like Cider Press and Honey Almond. Both brands of soaps scents doesn't really linger on the body. For me that's a plus, because I like to use scented body lotions or perfume :)


Lather - They both lather up really well. I would say that CC's lather feels a bit creamier to me. They both wash off very clean. My skin feels clean, but not too dry. 


Packaging/shipping - If I remember correctly they both arrived within three days. So that's quick! They pack the soaps nicely in a box and both brands also gives you a hand written note~which I thought was pretty cute. I like how both soaps are designed too--GMS has that wavy textured top and I also like that they didn't have a sleeve for their soap. It's all about the beautiful colors and textures and swirls you see when you open the box :) CC has a really cute sleeve. It's not important to have one in my opinion, but its a nice added detail to the product. I think I enjoy the different designs that are pressed into their soaps more~


Samples - Both brands came with samples. At checkout on GMS, they let you select three scents you would like to smell. I say smell, because the samples I got were really small. about the size of my pinky. I still liked it tho. At least I will know if I want to order it next time. CC gave me three samples too (randomly selected). CC samples are a nice size. it lasted up to a few days use for me. I also emailed her after I ordered to ask if one of my samples can be a coconut cream. She threw in a little cute molded bar of soap for me on top of the samples. That was really nice :) wish I took a pic of it~


Overall - I like and would recommend both brands. If I had to choose only one--- I think I lean more towards Creamery Creek. That's my personal liking tho. I would purchase again, but there are so many other brands I would like to try too. I'll let you know what I try next :)

Informative Animation~

Posted by snowbunnytales at 5:48 AM 0 comments
This is nice informative animation. It is a public service announcement that is/was going on in Japan. I don't think it's really funny like the title says, but it's informing a heavy subject by using cute animation as a medium. (did i say that right?)


Still wishing Japan the best. I heard they're doing better tho.

May Favourites

Posted by snowbunnytales at 5:41 PM 0 comments
I haven't been posting that much ><
sori~! I've been traveling around. I'm back in asia now :)
Here are some of my May favs :)


Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit - I've used this pretty much everyday for the past few months. I just need the tiniest amount to pat on my lids :) I always use it with an eye primer tho, so I'm not sure if it will crease without it. I'll need to check that out ;) But it has never creased on me~



I've been going on a few one or two night trips and this Kate Brown Collection Palette has been on these trips with me. I like how theres an eyebrow duo included in this too. The eye shadows are soft and blend really well also :)


Origins Quick n Hide! Concealer - Before this concealer, I've only used Benefit boi-ing and I was just ok with that one. I really like Origin's concealer. I think this is more of a medium coverage, but it blends well, looks natural, and feels good. I haven't tried a lot of concealers so I'm not sure where to rank this, but I'm definitely loving this one and haven't had the thought to buy another brand yet~ 


I'm in love with this Fragrance! Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne - This is fairly new in my collection! I just got it less than two weeks ago, but I can't wait to put it on every morning. Jo Malone always seemed a bit expensive to me, so I always would just walk by it. This time the sales rep was so nice and informative, she even gave me a few fragrances to sample before I bought it. I was right back at her counter the next day. I think I'll be addicted! mb I'll do a more in depth post about her fragrances :)


While looking for a wallet I glance over and back onto this Kate Spade gold ring~ it's cute! I've been wanting a bow ring for awhile now. I used to want a sparkly bow ring, but this gold one looks cuter and more elegant no?

so what are your May favs?
