You may not have noticed but I was away for a spell. But now I’m back 😉 Oh and I’m headed to Kuching for work next week so if you have recs on where to eat the best Kolo Mee in town (slurp!) Or where I can go, do feel free to let me know in the comments 😀
Speaking of Sarawak, I have to tell you about this adorable tub of Fueki Nakayoshi Body Cream. Look at that face… altogether now… Aww…. 😀
What this tub contains is a body cream that is enriched with horse oil. Yes horse oil! I used to go down to Isetan whenever the Hokkaido food fair is on, and one of the items that was very popular was horse oil creams because apparently, horse oil shares a similar lipid structure to humans. They were also very pricey so when I found out that this cream wasn’t, and that it was cute to boot, I was pleased to give it a go.
The texture of the cream isn’t very thick like a body butter, neither is it runny like a lotion. Its sort of in between but the nice thing is that it isn’t sticky. I found out it was good for very dry dehydrated skin, so I used this on my hands when they were dry and you know what? It really helps!
I was slathering on Lucas Papaw Ointment to help the dry peely skin on my hands but it was very sticky so I turned to the Fueki body cream instead which isn’t, and I was very pleased that it helped the skin stop cracking and actually helped with healing too. I’m told its also good for those with sensitive skin or eczema prone skin and for children.
I also took it with me on a long airplane flight and to a cold dry climate, and I was very pleased that it kept the scaly skin away from my legs. I was otherwise in danger of turning into a lizard 😛
So in a nutshell, I’d say, if you suffer from dry sensitive skin, give this Fueki Body Cream a go. The bright tub will make you smile in any case 🙂
Pros: Good for dry skin, Non oily, Non sticky, Non Fragranced
Cons: Hard to find, Have to dig into the tub
I’m about done with this tub and I’m going to pick one up to keep on my office desk. Its just RM35/50g or RM69/140g and I prefer unfragranced hand creams and I could do with a cute object on my desk to cheer me up throughout the day 😀
I was sent this one by Blissful Marketing from whom you can purchase it online if you are in W. Malaysia. If you are in Sarawak (aha! That’s the kolo mee connection!), you can get it from Valletta (Not sure where those stores are but if you do, please leave us a comment!) I’ve also seen it on Sasa.com for those outside of Malaysia but you know how I feel about them!
Have you come across this cute fella? Or perhaps you have tried it? 🙂 I’m sorta wanting to try the rest of the Fueki range now – they’re all so cute!
Fueki Nakayoshi Body Cream retails at RM35/50g and RM69/140g from Blissful Marketing online or Vattella shops in Sarawak
