Victoria Secret Ultra Rich Cream Wash in Coconut Milk Review





Purchased. victoria secret body wash, victoria secret body care line review, victoria secret coconut milk bodywash review, ultra rich cream wash in coconut milk review, victoria secret body care system review,

I like a lot of people love Victoria Secret, I have been wearing their bras since I was about 14/15ish from the PINK section. I have since grown out of using their Fantasy Fragrances everyday and onto using Perfume. It's a rare day when their skin care catches my eye but their new 4 step skin care system caught my eye. I just had to pick it up! 


I'm going to start off with step 2 of the system the cream body wash. I skipped out on the body scrub because I felt like it did not have enough scrubbers in it so I did not pick it up. 

What it promises: 

Description

A wash that cleans and nourishes, enriched with our natural Cotton Moisture Complex and conditioning coconut milk for ultimate moisture every day.

TIPS & TRICKS:Step two in our four-step Ultimate Moisture System for nourished, touchable skin from head to toe.

  •  Exclusive Cotton Moisture Complex for ultimate hydration
  • Replenishing rice milk and coconut oil
  • Infused with coconut milk for its soothing and moisturizing properties
  • Clinically proven formula
  • International patent-pending technology
  • Paraben free
What I found:

EDITafter using it in the colder months this can not repurchase. I am going to go back to my Olay Body wash. It works better and is cheaper. I still love the scent of this body wash though.

I like variety when it comes to body washes, I rotate between Lush, Victoria Secret fantasies, Bath and Body works and Olay. I always go back to my Olay body wash due to how moisturized it makes my skin feel. I still use body washes if they make my skin dry (Lush, Victoria Secret fantasies) I just follow up with a moisturizer.

I have to admit that the Coconut Milk cream wash not only smells heavenly it also feels heavenly on my skin. It lathers really well so a little goes a long way. My skin feels clean after I use it. Also it did not irritate me at all so it's safe for lady parts! 

My skin it not feel dry after use but I do like to follow it up with moisturizer. I like the clean, fresh scent it leaves behind on my skin. The fragrance is light enough that it does not interfere with your perfume. 


PROS:
  • Smells devine 
  • Little goes a long way
  • Easily obtainable
  • Moisturizes my skin
  • safe for all over use
CONS:
  • Pricy - picked it up for $8 but normally is 3 for $30
  • Not super moisturizing, will need to be followed up with lotion in the winter.

NOTE: I will be also reviewing the body lotion, and weightless oil in the same line, coming soon.

VERDICT: While this is definitely a luxury item with that high price tag it's only okay. EDITafter using it in the colder months this is not better than my standard Olay body wash. Skip

Did anyone else pick up any other scents from this collection?

Sephora's Beauty Before Brunch Event

I knew the Beauty Before Brunch Event was coming back in Mid-July before it was announced thanks to my favorite Sephora Employees. After hearing about it I just had to go! Who doesn't love Sephora events? They are always a good time!

You can watch my video about my experience here:




If not keep reading to find out what I picked up and what I thought about the event!

I went into this event with a same budget of only $70. I didn't want to spend too much on makeup because I am saving up for the Sephora VIB November sale along with all the Fall releases coming soon - talking about Makeup Geek Jaclyn Hill Collaboration.  Anyone else excited for the incoming fall collections?

I personally had a lot of fun during this event. I brought Joe my fiancé with me, as well as through working at the mall I made lots of friends throughout the stores. It was like a small party. I talked to a few different associates which I came to find out they will be re doing some of the Kat Von D makeup and releasing new shades soon! I can't wait.

I got to try out the Vita Liberata tanning mouse while I was there which I have to say impressed me. Did not turn me orange! Also a review of that coming soon!

I picked up 2 Kat Von D liquid lipstick during the event, then ended up ordering one from home during the 4 times the points period because they did not have the shade I wanted in the store. I am beyond impressed with the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks as this is my first experience with them.

I also picked up a thing of brush on lash glue. I just needed new lash glue since I do use fake lashes pretty often now a days.
