Pupa Milk Therapy Nourishing Moisturizer S.O.S. - Mini Review .... and more!

Hello Again! Today I am going to do a mini review of a moisturizer by Pupa - Milk Therapy Nourishing Moisturizer S.O.S.  I had been given this sample by a friend a long time ago and decided to finally give it a try :) You will have to look for it in your local perfumeries or else a wide search on the internet might get you to it.  I only found it on one Italian website and they are saying that it is out of stock!

My sample pouch is  not large, but I have been using it for a week now and I think there is still enough left for another week. I only apply it once every morning (I am not a big cream fan so the less the better for me)





My Experience:

This cream is supposed to nourish and moisturize dry skin, in fact it says that is it suitable for dry and dehydrated skin. I do feel my skin a little lighter and smoother but it is not exactly hydrated.  The cream is absorbed by the skin rather fast so application is quick, and it immediately feels fresh with a subtle smell of coconut.  Personally I love coconut smell, and I simply enjoy how when the wind blows in my face I smell the coconut of the moisturizer all day! For me the scent is not overwhelming, however, some people tend to find it rather irritating so this may be pose a little problem, since I do not know whether the people surrounding me like it or not. There is always the thought that someone will smell the coconut and think that I took a shower in it, at the back of my mind when I wear this cream!  The smooth feeling lasts all day but the cooling effect is rather a momentary experience. It does not feel like clogging the skin either, although sometimes I do feel my cheeks pulling a little.  It also helps my blusher stay on longer too, which is a bonus.

Overall Rating:

Pros:
  • Refreshing and cooling effect is enjoyable
  • Easily absorbed by the skin and doesn't feel tacky - fast application
  • Little amount needed to cover all the face 
  • Leaves a smooth skin
Cons:
  • Coconut smell might not be to everyone's liking
  • Hydration and Nourishment are not exactly felt. Skin may pull at times.
  • Difficult to find online and probably hard to find in stores as well.
  • Italian brand so can be slightly pricey!
 


So all in all I think that this product deserves a 3 Diamond Rating.  I will not be buying the full product because apart from the fact that it is hard to come by, I still have a stack of moisturizers and day creams to try out and this one I think that is not exactly the perfect one for me.  I will finish off the sample pouch though as I like  the smooth feeling and the coconut breeze :)

A Little Update :)

This week I decided to finally purchase a present FROM ME TO ME for being such a good girl and save up on my motor insurance :) I hopped into the W2Beauty online store and got myself all of SHINee's Be My Princess Minime perfumes!!!! I wasn't sure which one to buy and then I stumbled on an offer which said that I could have all 5 for the price of 4 and forgot all about the choosing part :) I also had a $5 coupon that I earned on sign up so I ended saving a further $5 on the whole deal which is super :)

Here is the link to the product page and if you want your $5 sign-up coupon insert this code: 2862205  when registering your account and you will be able to use it immediately :)

As if that wasn't enough, I checked out he Born Pretty Store and got myself some Holographic Nail Polish and Nail Art water stickers and embossed ones too.  As soon as I get them I will post a full haul here with pictures and links and then you are sure to see some manicures using these goodies :)  I should be receiving a parcel from another store with some Etude House polishes as well which means more manicure ideas :)

Thanks again for reading and don't forget to follow using Bloglovin whose icon is on the top right corner of this page! GFC will soon be off so it is better to migrate all your blogs.
