Top & Flop – July 2016
July is already over, it was a month full of adventures and emotions for me. I tested several products but only two of them stood out: the Etude House‘s suncreen Sunprise Dust Block and the Daniel Jouvance‘s repair balm for dry and damaged hands.
♥ Sunprise Dust Block from Etude House.
I used this sunscreen durint my entire Trip in Asia and I liked it ! It works well, I had no sunburns at all on my face, and as it is not white when you apply it, I was able to do my makeup as usual. It did not melt either, even if outside it was at almost always 33°C.
This trip in Asia was a real crash test for this sunscreen because I went to 4 countries with very hot temperatures and a lot of humidity. I had no problem with it so I can only recommend it. It is available on Kbeauty online store and Eutde House Global for 13,20 euros.
♠ Repair Balm for dry and damaged hands from Daniel Jouvance.
It is the second time that I talk about a Daniel Jouvance product on this blog. I don’t really use this brand except when someone offer me a product. As you may guess someone gave me this hand balm before my departure for Asia this summer.
This repair balm is very liquid, and the end piece isn’t made to display a small amount of product. You only can get a pat of product, but as it is very liquid it is too much for two hands. The balm is also very difficult to absorb, and I really hate to have to wait my hands up for 5 minutes.
As you can see above, a pat of balm spread on one entire end is too much and it is almost as if I had barely spread it on the back of my hand. You don’t even imagine when the end piece relases too much product and no only a pat… The product is also very greasy and that doesn’t mean that it is hydrating! I’ve only used this balm in July and my hands have never been so dry.
I do not recommend you to try this repair balm from Daniel Jouvance, but if you want you can find one that seems to be the same on their website, here. I was not able to find the exact one, maybe they changed the packaging or changed their formula…
See you next month for a new Top and a new Flop !
