First impression; May Coop Raw Moisturizer

Hiya darlings!

Yes, you’re reading this correctly, we’re back, better, cooler, and super hungry for new awesome skincare products!

And as usual, we’ll be sharing all the details with you!

So today I’m gonna give you all the first impression on this raw little gem that’s gonna hydrate my dry ass skin! (At least that’s what we’re aiming for, am I right?)

Doesn’t it look pretty? So organic and fetch! (Yeah, I know, fetch will never happen, but it was worth a try!) Anyway, here are the facts!

Name: May Coop Raw Moisturizer
Product: Moisturizer
Good for: Hydrating, basically.
Description: The Raw Moisturizer is a unique formula moisturizer that contains a powerful combination of 70% maple tree sap, aloe, baobab tree and cactus extracts that easily absorb into the skin.

This is just adorable, again! Sleek and clean package design that just lures you in, thinking that the product is cleaner than a baby’s freshly wiped buttocks. (Yes, I just typed that.)
I must admit that I didn’t think to research this as much as I should have when I purchased it, and if you’re wondering why I’m even mentioning it, just check the Cosdna. Facts are always hard to swallow when you’ve been shopping at late hours!
Anyway! Let’s talk about the looks of this gem!

Packaging:
It comes in a box looking like wood, and one can tell that there is a “red line” in the packaging from start to finish. You open this little box, and inside, a bagged little thing awaits you. And after a little head scratch and a giggle you untangle the bag and find a beautiful jar, packed with skin-goodness!

It’s just a beauty, and the fact that this is loaded with maple sap, or water if you want to, really reflects in the “wood” packaging. Pretty cool right?
The container itself is made of frosted glass, is a neat size, and has a plastic wooden lid, so this gem, would probably suit most of us as a traveling companion!
(I know for a fact that I’m gonna have it with me this summer holiday, so I’ll make sure to shake the suitcase twice, and give you all a very detailed summary of how it held up compared to my other products, traveling and skin-wise!)


Texture & Smell:
You guys, this thing just smells goodness, and peace and love and everything nice!
The scent isn’t overbearing, it doesn’t just come at you, guns blazin’, and tackle your nose
into a flower frenzy! It’s pleasant, and makes you want to rub it all over your face.
In my opinion it’s subtle, yet sweet and lovable, just like those little sweet porcelain figurines your aunt Margie had when you were a kid. Until then you were told horror stories around the campfire, and from then on had sleep with one eye open, when spending the night at that cunt’s house. Cuz them figurines can’t be trusted.
Anyway, let’s just get this train back on track!
The texture of this hydration bomb is similar to others, it’s creamy and nice, but not too heavy. It has a light cloudiness to it, so it doesn’t look as intimidating as a full on “this is gonna make your face rage” face cream. Which is nice.


It soaks up really fast compared to what I had in mind, and leaves you with a smooth looking patch of skin.
What I do like about it, is that it gives you just a hint of matte-ness when dried down, I really can’t stand those creams that make you so oily that cars would crash when you walk past, because you’re so friggin shiny and blinding. We’ll leave that job to highlighters and makeup.

Anyways!
So far I’ve only gotten to test it for a couple of days, and so far so good, but anyone who’s been reading our blog for a while knows that my skin has a tendency to be one devious little motherbleeper, so fingers crossed that this is a match made in the forrest where they harvested the maple sap. Or heaven. Whichever floats yer boat.
I’ll be back with a full on review on this maple syrup, or sap, or moisturizer when it’s properly sniffed, rubbed, tubbed, loved, and all the other things one could possibly do to a face cream. Maybe it’s safe to eat? Or just.. no.

Remember, what works for me, might not work for you, YMMV.
So I’d recommend always taking a closer look at the product before purchasing. Unless you’re like me, weak for pretty packaging and cute names.
But for clarification, that almost never works out, my skin likes nice ingredients, and doesn’t really care about pink & shiny.

Have you tried this product?
Let us know!

Peace&Love

Rant Of The Week; Tom(h)ato 🍅

Hello darlings, dudelings and everyone in between!

This rant is in no shape or form sponsored. These are my words and honest opinions.

So, I’ve finally tested a product that I’ve come to resent. A lot. We’re talking pure fire out of my ears, nose and bellybutton because I loathe this thing so much.
Well, I don’t hate the product itself, but the fact that no matter how hard I try, it just doesn’t want to be besties with my face. Goddamnit!
At first it was love at first sight, this beauty of a massage mask found it’s way into my heart, and I was sure that this would be a good match, Mr.Tomato and I.

Firstly a little review just to get the idea of it all, then I’ll explain why this little red fruit had to go and live in the bin.

Name: Tomatox Magic Massage Pack from TonyMoly
Product: Face mask, Massage Type
Good for: Brightening, Detox, Removing Sebum, Lighten Dark Spots.
Manufactures description: “Massage your way to brighter, clearer skin. This massage pack stars the underrated but totally powerful Tomato. It naturally brightens skin, diminishing the appearance of blemishes and dark spots. It also detoxifies and cleans out dirt trapped inside pores, the culprit of breakouts. Other botanical and fruit extracts also work together to leave you with youthful, healthy, and glowy skin.”

Directions: “After cleansing, apply on towel-dried face and gently massage for about 1 to 2 min. After massaging, leave it on your face for 5 to 10 min. Rinse out with lukewarm water and pat with towel. Use 2 to 3 times per week or use everyday as needed.”

Texture & Smell:
This mask has a white creamy almost lotion-like consistency without being a grease mess from down under, it smells fresh and nice, spreads evenly and look the part of a nice face mask that won’t break you out or make your face burn. But don’t trust it, because this is one evil piece of cuteness!

Container:
This mask comes in an amazeballs container, typical TonyMoly with it’s sweetness and quirkiness, for that single reason I want to love the mask, but let’s be real guys, you can’t love something just for its looks.
It also comes with a spatula, so you can easy scoop up the amount you need without contaminating the entire content of the jar. Nice!

So what do I feel about it?

For some this might work, I love the promises it gives, the package and the scent! But when it comes to the whole putting on the mask and massaging, that’s where the magic stops.
I have never felt such a itchy/burning sensation before just for applying white goo in my face! All was rainbows and unicorns when I got it on, I started massaging it in, and had no clue what awfulness awaited me!
So, halfway in the massaging I noticed a burning sensation, and not the good one, I just thought it was normal and proceeded doing my thang, but when the burning didn’t fade and rationality kicked in, I decided it was best to safe my whitehead-filled face by washing this bastard of. After some wishywash & taptap drying,  I did a smexy hairflip and took a look in the mirror. HOLYFUCKBALLS, my gorgeous cherub-shaped face!
The Tomato mask just got real. Like, colored in 50 shades of red real. Okay, maybe not 50, more like 3, but still, Mr.Tomato, you were meant to be my bestie. *sadface*

I retraced my steps in the routine prior to the redness galore incident, and tried to blame the toner that I’d been using for merely a week. A week passed and I thought it was time to give the Tomatox another go.. Silly girl. Same result, but now the sorrow was replaced by anger. You dumb fruit you! We were supposed to brighten my skin, not make it match your color!

And by now you’re probably thinking; “Oh, but you’ve learned by now right? It’s time to let it go, Mocka.”
HAH. Never! They say that thirds the charm, so I gave it another week, and this time I was determined that we would get along, which we did! 2 minutes longer than the last time. I got to the whole “leaving it on my face” part before redness disaster made an appearance, and it was of quicker than you can say “Mocka, you silly nilly!” This time it only left a bright flushed color, so I would say improvement!

Today, yes.. Today! I tried it one last time just to be 100% sure that this was the root of all evil. Bad news? It still is. Good news? I just got myself a brand new tomato shaped container! Because you know.. gotta see the good in the awful red bastard.

So conclusion?
This product will probably be amazing if your skin can handle it. I have seen good reviews of it, so for some this has to work! Unfortunately me and my cuteness overload loving face is not one of them.
With that being said my rating will reflect my experience of this product, but I’ve decided to give it scores on several points, to make it more fair. Even if this product made me see red.

Packaging: 9/10
Scent: 8/10
Texture: 7/10
Performance: -10/10 (Hopefully just me)
Overall: 4,5/10

Goddamnit Tomato, why do you have to be so cute?
