Review; May Coop Raw Sauce

Hiya Darlings!

I know, this review was due yesterday, but when one lives on the countryside and there’s lightning and thunder, the internett has this funny way of saying “Nope, nothing to do here!” Which results in one helpless k-beautyblogger, to make a semi long story short.
Anyway! Thank you for your patience, let’s just dive right in to this saucy flower power wonder!

So, Jolse was so kind as to pick me as one of their 40 peeps to review this product, which makes me one lucky motherducker, seeing as I’ve been eyeballing this product pretty hard for a long time, but never really wanted to spend a lot of money on a product I was on the fence about, and I have to say, well worth the wait, and I’m kinda sorry I didn’t get it myself, so if you’re on the fence about it yourself, read on!
Anyway, I’ve tested this awesome facesauce, so I’ll just go on and tell you about it!

Name: May Coop Raw Sauce
Product: Toner, Emulsion and Essence ( A triple threat right here)
Good For: Providing moisture, protecting skin against free radicals.
Description:
The size of Acer maple water compound particles is similar to that of the human body fluid, which makes it easy for the sauce to smear deeply into the skin.
Natural fructose in Acer maple water, called ‘MSE’ by MAY COOP, prevents moisture evaporation like glycerin.
Fructan powder provides vitalizing nutrition to the skin, Nature701 Complex moisturizes the skin with various effects, and Organic G Complex strengthens the tired skin with stability. (Description from Jolse)
Price: 28$ 
Cosdna

Packaging:
It’s clean, and very well executed, just like the moisturizer I’ve tried before from May Coop you get the feeling that they want the product to speak for itself, simple lines and natural. I really like the fact that the bottle is made of glass, just to make it a tad bit more exclusive, with that being said, I’m not sure how travel friendly a long glass bottle is when it comes to traveling.
The classic box it comes in that has this wood pattern on it is funny considering that it’s 93% acer maple tree sap in this bad boy. Or maybe I just find it funny. A good sense of humor never was my strong suit.

Texture & Smell:
Is it a essence, is it a toner, is it an emulsion? No, It’s sauce!
The way I would describe it is as a thick toner, and a perfect essence/emulsion hybrid, but we’ll just go with sauce, much easier.
It spreads nice and evenly, like a sauce should!

First time I tapped out some magic from the bottle I had this immediate fear that it was gonna be a sticky smelly mess, but then again, we all love a good surprise!
It’s a bit tacky before it soaks in, but what do you expect when dealing with raw sauce?

It’s a bit on the slow side when finding it’s way deep down to your skin, but it’s worth the wait, I usually just slap it on, do a little jiggle wiggle dance and fix my hair while waiting for it to do it’s thing.
Again, a bit on the sticky side, but considering it’s not the last step of the skincare routine, it’s really not that big of a deal.
Scent wise I have to say, it’s something to get used to, It’s not one of my favorite scents, basically because I feel that my nose is being held hostage in a field of flowers, and there’s no way to escape. But if you’re into flowery scents, then this will probably be your new favourite to sniff.

Application:
Cleanse-Tone-Slap some sauce on!
Yeah I know, keeping it simple over here. I just apply it with my hands, I find it more manageable to control the amount of product this way, and disperse it evenly, but if you prefer, cotton pads will also work wonders!

My thoughts on this product?

I have to say, the first week I didn’t like it what so ever, the scent was so overbearing I just could not for the love of me enjoy the skin benefits it provided, because trust me, this sauce is golden. It really does the job when it comes to hydration, and gives the skin a dewy look. As for the whole protecting from the scary superbad damaging free-radicals I have no clue, haven’t really talked to them that much, so yeah.
But for me, this is one sweet sauce I’m not gonna burn while stirring!

Hopefully this will have given you some insight on this, so I’ll just move along to my favourite part of these posts. Yes darlings, you guessed it, it’s rating time!

Your Mileage May Vary, and we’re all different, you should always check the ingredient list and read about a product before purchasing it, but hey, no pressure!

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. Leaves skin feeling deeply hydrated and smooth. Perfect for all skin types. (Borrowed the info from Peach & Lily.)
Price: 40$

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

These are all products I’ve had my eye on for at least a month, many of them for several months.

Sometimes a product will be prioritized over another product at that perticular time. And sometimes you just already have enough of one product type sitting around. Nevertheless most of these will all get their chance to shine in my skin care routine at some point.

Stay tuned to find out which ones will be part of my next haul and why!
Have you tried any of these? 😀
