Essie Metallic Green (Crocadilly) Nails

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I found this Essie nail polish at the 99 cent Only Store and only paid $1! Only problem with this color is that I couldn’t find the name for this polish hence the vague title. I did a little research online and I believe it’s a limited edition of magnetic Essie.

It’s a pretty army green with a slight metallic color and it only took 2 layers for this look! Even if I had the magnetic top, I still wouldn’t use it.

What do you guys think?!

Gunilla of Sweden Nutrient Rich Body Lotion Review

Hey loves!

So sorry for the long wait in my posts! I just started my last semester of college and it’s already overwhelming.

I was given the Gunilla of Sweden Hydro-Organic Skin Care Nutrient Rich Body Lotion to try and review and have been playing with it for quite a long time now.  I have to admit I love it! But before I tell you why, I just want to give you guys the run down about this special product; its not like your average normal body lotion.

Lets take a look at the name brand lotion when you break apart the ingredients:

Name Brand Body Lotions

*70% is water: No nutrients, No Healing Vitamins

*10% Mineral Oil “Pore Clogging”

*5% Animal products “Lanolin”

*5% Harsh Preservatives

*10% Synthetic Fillers & Emollients

ABC-> Active Botanical Content is 0% (that can’t be good, right?)

Now lets look at the :

Gunilla’s Aloe Based Nutrient Rich Body Lotion 

*65% Organic Aloe: anti-inflammatory and proven to heal skin better than many prescription drugs

*12% Organic Pomegranate, Strawberry

*3% Natural Preservatives and Emollients

ABC-> Active Botanical Content is 77%(way higher thanthe name brand)

The sad thing is that people want to buy the high end brands because they think since they’re paying lots of money for it, that it’s the real deal. But in reality, its quite the opposite. I’m not saying that I think people shouldn’t buy high end brands, I mean we all do it, I would just say not to buy so much.

The name brand body lotions as you can see has lots of different ingredients but none are natural, they’re mostly chemicals.

My Opinion:

The packaging label is adorable in my opinion. Its an oval shaped sticker with the border being gold.

It smells like the beach to be honest. Like aloe and a little fruity. Its really soothing and makes your skin baby soft. I tried it when I had a sunburn and it felt like one of those after sun creams. It really helped with my sunburn! I was sunburned on my shoulders and put the lotion on twice a day, it was gone within a week but then it start peeling. Long story short, I used it twice a day and the peeling wasn’t all that bad from my experiences.

It’s 12.8 fl oz (380 mL) for the price of $25. Not bad at all!

Here’s a link to anyone who is interested about it.
