Bodycare Review: Sunday Rain Himalayan Salt Massage Ball, Acai Berry Bath Crystals, Acai Berry Bubble Bath, Acai Body Scrub, and Watermelon Exfoliating Cubes

Textures that keep the skin soft and glowing. These vegan and cruelty-free products from Sunday Rain promises soothe and rejuvenate you while taking care of your skin.

I’m a fan of quick baths especially on weekdays, but I really take my time on the weekends. I first used the Himalayan Salt Massage Ball to massage my body, especially my legs and neck. This is my first time using something like this and I am amazed as to how relaxed and calm it made me feel.

I then mix the Acai Berry Bath Crystals and the Acai Berry Bubble Bath to relax. Both may smell a bit sweet for some but the scent is relaxing for me. The bubble bath also feels creamy on the skin so I’m always soothed and smooth afterward.

To soften the skin, I use the Acai Body Scrub or the Watermelon Exfoliating Cubes. The body scrub is what I like to use on my knees and heels to soften and leave my skin feeling like silk. The exfoliating cubes contain shea butter, almond seed oil, and sunflower oil and it leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I like that they don’t feel too rough on the skin and the pink color made me smile.

I really liked how these products help my selfcare routine. These fruity scents might not be what I usually prefer but I enjoy how subtle their scents are, a complete contrast to the results it provided.

Skincare Review: Bliss What A Melon Toner, Hydrator, and Mask

I love watermelons. I’ve been eating them for as long as I can remember so my excitement from receiving the What A Melon collection of Bliss. These vegan and cruelty-free products use watermelon extract, cucumber fruit extract, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, soothe, calm, and moisturize the skin. They all smell like summer and sweetened watermelon!

Using willow bark extract, witch hazel, magnesium aspartate, and copper and zinc gluconates, the Toner ($17) promise to remove excess oil, protect the skin from free radicals, and calm, soothe, balance, and tone the complexion. This gently exfoliates the skin and feels hydrating. It’s very watery and sinks in quickly into the skin. It does balance the oiliness of my skin and makes it less oily when I use it in the mornings.

Now, I have a slight bias when it comes to jelly-textured moisturizers so I wasted no time in trying out the Hydrator ($20). It contains brazilian seawater, sea salt, and willow bark extract to hydrate, balance, and remove excess oil in the skin.

The moisturizer looks so bouncy in the tub and applies so watery to the skin, making it feel refreshing. I experience a bit of tingling the first few seconds of application but it dries beautifully on my oily skin. It’s not matte but it doesn’t sit on top of my skin either and doesn’t aggravate the oiliness of my skin the morning after use.

An overnight treatment, the Mask ($15) promises to replenish, balance, protect, and moisturize the skin using magnesium aspartate, and copper and zinc gluconates, rice bran extract, and avena sativa oat kernel extract.

Like the hydrator, this #overnightmask feels very watery to the skin. As instructed, I massaged it on my face for a minute. While doing so, I was a bit concerned that it will sit on top of my face. However, as promised, it sunk in pretty quickly and left the skin feeling plump but matte. It stung a bit, like the Hydrator but it subsides after a few minutes. By the morning, my skin looks radiant and dewy so I like using this in the middle of the week when my skin gets dull.

These products do not mattify but they do hydrate and balance the skin. I’ve been using them together for a month now and they have plumped and soften my skin without making look greasy and dull.
