I think I’m gonna have this new segment on my blog called Recently Bought or this might be a one time thing. I’m not so sure. I think this might be my own version of haul posts but for this, it’s not exactly a haul since I’m just showing two items: Dream Cream by Lush and the iPhone6.
Remember my Christmas Wish List post? This is the first item on that list. I have a very sensitive skin. I have two skin disorders which are Eczema and Keratosis Pilaris, the small bumps on my skin. Sometimes it gets so bad that I just itch all day. I’ve been trying different creams now but one that really works are Cetaphil cream (not the lotion) and Physiogel cream. But I came across this product and I’ve heard nothing but good stuffs about it. I bought it online after some research cos I don’t want to buy it out of impulse cos it really is expensive but I did at the end. It’s one of Lush’s best seller products.
I was so excited to finally have it. I love the look of the packaging. The container is made out of recycled plastic so I think it’s cool. All Lush products are vegan. This Dream Cream is made out of jut natural products like oat milk, cocoa butter, rose water, lavender and other good stuffs. At first, I was a little bit disappointed cos I was expecting a thick consistency but mine is a little runny. I think they changed the formula. The smell is amazing. It smells like roses but it’s not that powering. It just smells right. I’ve been trying it for about 5 days now. It soothes my skin and it doesn’t itch that much anymore. My KP is still there and sometimes my skin have that dry feeling and I feel like I should put more but overall, this works just fine. My eczema is not the bad kind, it just have dry patches so I think this might work on those kind where it leaves your skin red. Maybe I was just expecting a lot from this product. I guess I’ll know in the long run.
Now this isn’t in my Christmas list but I’m so glad I have it. Finally had an upgrade from my iPhone4s which I have been using for years. It’s slow now and some apps doesn’t work. I think this phone looks different from the rest of the iPhones so I thought this is a great time to upgrade and I’m glad I did. This is the best phone ever! Some of my friends who are tech savvy says so themselves. I got the gold one. I like how it looks plus it’s white on the front. My old iPhone was black and my mom who used to loathe smart phones uses it now. The size is just right for me. One of the main reason why I want to have this is because of the camera. It’s so clear and it has features like slo-mo and time lapse. For a blogger like me and for someone who loves photography, this is the perfect phone for you. I got the 64 gb so I won’t be worrying about memory which was the issue for me back then cos I only had the 16 gb. I like how the size got bigger, just enough for me plus with the feature reachability, I can use it with just one hand. It’s super light despite how big it is compared to older models. I’m just in love with this phone and I think I won’t be using my DSLR anymore.
