Review: Cellnique Paramedical Body Plush Emulsion Wash

Price: RM59 (≈ USD20)

An invigorating burst of fragrant sumptuousness and a gentle caress of velvety opulence, this body wash's spellbinding scent envelopes you in a sweet-smelling cocoon and intoxicates you with its aroma-therapeutic essential oil fragrance. Leaving the skin feeling deliciously soft and sinfully smooth.

Ingredients List:
Purified Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Decyl Glucoside, Glycerin, Cocamide DEA, Polyquaternium 39, Styrene/Acrylate Copolymer, Fragrance, Sodium Lactate, Olive (Oleo europaea) Oil, Trehalose, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Sweet Orange (Citrus aurantium dulcis) Oil, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methy-Ilsothiazolinone

My Thought:
As you can see, the texture of this shower cream is not really thick and more to a runny side. It has a very refreshing citrus-y scent and the scent is pretty long-lasting on me. It lathers well just like most of the shower creams and makes my skin feels really clean. It does moisturize my skin, but I still need to apply body lotion afterward as I feel it's not enough for just using the shower cream alone. But for a this tiny bottle of shower cream (250mL / 8.4 fl oz.), I do feel it's rather pricey.

- Moisturzing
- Cleanses well
- Pleasant scent

- Pricey

Rating: 3.5/5
 Repurchase: Yes if it's 50% off :P

LUSH Haul from Melbourne

These are the only things that I got from my Melbourne trip. When I first knew that I was going to visit Melbourne, I knew that I had to get something from LUSH. I even visited all 3 LUSH stores in Melbourne, yeah I'm crazy like that. The first time I stepped into the LUSH store, I felt like a little girl in a candy shop. I finally know why everyone loves LUSH, it's really addicting! I wanted to sniff all the stuffs and try them one by one, but of course I didn't :p. I only got a few stuffs to try and even my parents got a couple of soaps too, I'd enabled them :D.

LUSH haul!

It's the best scent ever! The sweet honey and toffee scent is really addicting and I couldn't stop smelling it. Even though I haven't tried the soap yet but I know that I'm going to love it!

It has a very refreshing citrus-y scent which I really love. The scent is so strong that it's overpowering other soaps' scents. Like HIWTK soap, I haven't had a chance to try this but it's going to be a love!

I've read some reviews for this soap that it's great for exfoliating and for dry skin, and I got it as I have really dry skin on my arms and legs area. It has a really sweet scent and I really like it. Will have to try it soon to see if it really works.

After reading some reviews about how good LUSH solid shampoos are, I decided to get one. The SA recommended this solid shampoo to me when I told her I have oily hair. I've been using this shampoo ever since I got it and I really like it! It cleans my hair really well, keeps my scalp oil-free and it also gives my hair shine! It lathers up super well with just a few swipes which really impressed me. Jumping Juniper smells really good, it has a citrus-y scent but the scent doesn't last long on me. Bottom line,  I'll definitely try more of LUSH solid shampoos!

It's the best selling cleanser from LUSH and I knew I had to get one to try. At first I thought the lavender scent was a bit too strong (I never really like lavender scent) but after a few uses, I got over the scent. After using this cleanser, my skin feels really clean and soft and I love that it also works as a gentle exfoliator. The only downside is probably that it doesn't help to control the excessive sebum secretion.

I have very oily and acne prone skin, I told the SA about my skin type and she recommended Coalface to me. As I've heard good reviews for this cleanser, I decided to try it. I've tried it and I'm sold. It cleans my skin really well and this cleanser is the only cleanser that keep my skin staying matte and oil-free for a longer time. The only thing that I don't like from this cleanser is the scent, I can't really describe it but it's definitely not a pleasant scent for me. I've tried using this soap by lathering it between my hands but it didn't work. Then I tried to use a face net which I learned from Kay of Cosmeddicted on this post, and it works really great! By using this method, it's not messy at all like what people's complained about.

Just rubbed a little bit of the soap on the face net.

And it lathers really well! Definitely love this product!

That's it for this post. Till next time!

Melbourne's Wildlife

Sorry for taking this long to post this, I was so lazy to do anything after I'm back. I didn't even transfer the pictures to my laptop until two days ago. Anyhow, here's the highlight of my Melbourne trip!

When we're in Melbourne, we took our day tours from Gray Line. I think it's a great idea to take this kind of tour if you want to do sightseeing since they have a lot of tours to choose from. As for our tour, we went to Churchill Island, Phillip Island and the Ballarat Australian Wildlife Park.

At Churchill Island, we got to see wallabies (small kangaroos). Unlike kangaroos, they're so hard to approach so I only got to take their pics from far away.

**Pic Heavy**

A ten-month-old wallaby.

Baby wallaby in the mother's pouch! It's really rare sighting so the tour guide said :D
*sorry for the blurry pics, they're too far*

This one is so camera-ready :)

Then at Phillip Island we visited Koala Conservation Centre where we could see koalas from tree top boardwalks. But when we were there, we only saw one koala that's awake, koalas are sleeping most of the time.

The only one that was 'awake'.

Koala's favorite foods: gum trees.

One of the most popular wildlife attraction at Phillip Island is the Penguin Parade. The Penguin Parade is where we could witness the Little Penguins returning from the sea each evening at dusk after spending the day up to 100km off the shore and watch as they leave the sea, cross the beach and go to their burrows. The Little Penguin is world's smallest penguin and only about 1ft tall. They're the cutest birds I've ever seen! (I hate don't like the rest of the bird species btw)

On our way to the Penguin Parade.

This is where we watched the Penguin Parade.

Waiting for the little penguin to come home, it was super cold!

Too bad we weren't allowed to take any photograph of the penguins even though I really wanted to do so :(. But I took this picture of the penguin plush toys for you all! The real little penguins were just as cute as these :D.

The next day we went to Ballarat Australian Wildlife Park. This is where I got to pet kangaroo and koala and also hand feed a kangaroo!

Wallabies are so much cuter than kangaroos IMHO.

I was hand-feeding this young kangaroo!

Most of the kangaroos had this kind of attitude when I tried to took their pictures.

A baby kangaroo in the pouch!

My mom said the one in the front looked dead, LOL.

They actually look kinda cute!
But until I saw this...
not so cute anymore :p

Feeding the devil with white rat.

Next, the koalas again!

This is the one that I petted! The koala's hair feels so soft and they smell really nice!

He tried to lure the koala with their favorite food!

Saw this mama koala with a baby!

I got a little obsessed with them and kept taking their pictures :p.

Love how she cuddled the baby!

I was wondering if this one's the papa koala :D

That's it for the Melbourne's wildlife adventure! Next, I'm going to make you drool :p.
Till next time!
