Fruity Cream

I'm a sucker for cute packaging so I ended up with these thing. These cute things are hand creams! I have no idea what they're called, but they're from Japan. I got these in Hong Kong for $55HKD for 30g and they sell for 12000won here.
The fruit cap might look like it won't screw/stay on properly, but I've had it rolling around my purse without cracking open.
I think the cream has a gel like consistency without being too runny.
These aren't really worth it because there is so little hand cream so it's mainly for the cuteness. The things I like about these hand creams are the smell and how it makes my hands feel so soft!

The pear cream smells like a juicy sweet pear. I haven't opened the apple one yet, but when I took a whiff of the sample, it smelled pretty good. These hand creams also come in orange scent in a cute orange container. Although they smell really good, I'm sad to report that the scents don't linger too long.
The cream makes my hands feel very soft, but once I wash my hands, it doesn't feel as soft anymore.
These are also available in lipbalms which are also packaged in the cute fruit shapes. You can get them on Sasa.com.
Speaking of Sasa, has anyone noticed that Imomoko.com's layout looks awfully similar to Sasa's?

I was a bored bored girl this week..4/5 days were spent hanging around the office with no classes to teach. Good thing I was allowed to leave after 3 hours on Weds-Friday XD Since I was so bored, I decided to open my DIY felt thingys.
I made a bunch of cookies and a cake by using the patterns that were provided. I'm terrible at embroidery so up close, the stiches look really bad. I'm also not what I used to be at creating crafts, I think I'm too impatient for them now, but I still managed to get these made hehe.

Happy weekend everyone! =)
Oh btw, you still have about 30 hours to enter my mini giveaway XD

Fruit smell + Kawaii packaging = lemming!

the packaging is absolutely adorable. A lot of hand cream scents does not last long.

The stuffed cakes and cookies looks so yummy to eat.

Sofie said...

"I got these in Hong Kong for $55HKD for 30g and they sell for 12000won here"............miumiu, next time just translate them in one currency, i can't tell it's good price or not...haha, your embroideries are cute!

They have those fruit creams here at my local japanese market, marukai - and I've always wanted to get them.
Especially the pear one!

and I've always wanted to try the cake felting projects, i see so many pattern books on ebay, but the translation is a pain.

I would sooo buy those off you tho!

hey girly.. cute stuff!! hmm.. never noticed the similiarities of the websites.. but doesnt' bother me that much as long as my orders are fulfilled! =)

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

homemade craft looks really cute!! ive seen those lipbalms around!!

Blair said...

Ahh, I think I prefer using my hands to sew, I can't work the sewing machine for some reason!

The tiny cake looks deli, mind keeping it out of my sight, I might chomp it hahaha.

The hand creams are cute though, you can whip out an 'apple' and proceed to open it and apply your hand cream nonchalantly. Gimmicky but we like em!
