[Review] Jollycow Choco Milk

Jollycow Chocolate milk is a new player in the market. Upon receiving the box of Jollycow, I was excited to give it a try. When breakfast came the next day, I tried a glass of chilled Jollycow choco milk, though I don’t like drinking plain milk (read Fresh milk) I must say drinking chocolate milk for me is something different for me. JollyCow’s Chocolate milk has this rich chocolate flavor, more like dark chocolate plus its not too sweet.

As for its packaging, its available in 2 sizes: 200 ml Ideal for kids baon & 1L  for sharing at home. The difference between Choco milk and choco drink is that choco milk healthier since its made from 100% pure cow’s milk, cocoa & Sugar. Its the healthier choice.

[Beauty] Human Nature All Natural Soap & Spray Sanitizer

Human Nature All Natural Soap

Size: 120g

Price:  P59.75

The Verdict:

Having tried a lot of different beauty soaps in the market, I would say that  Human Natures Soap is more gentle on my skin with less drying effect. Personally, I had a hard time finding a good soap that would give my skin more moisture since I don’t have good skin. Its a clear and unscented bar soap.  Its gentle to the skin since its made from all natural ingredients. Considering that for some who are into the scented beauty soaps, I don’t mind that its unscented as long as it gives my skin good mositure. Though its a bit expensive compared to the soap in the market. I would recommend this to people who wants to improve their blemished skin or complicated skin.

Human Natures Spray Sanitizer in Tropical Burst

Size: available in 50ml & 200ml

Price: 50ml: P67.75

200ml: P189.75

Also available in: Citrus Burst & Juicy Burst

Verdict: 

The scent was refreshing after your first few sprays. I personally love the scent, its a mix of citrus with a hint of vanilla. Once you spray it to your hand, you will be smelling the different scents. But to some of my friends, they didn’t like the scent, they said that its too citrusy and strong to their smell. As for the product, I like how it makes me feel that my hands are clean after a few sprays. It is also very convenient to bring along anywhere. I’d say, I will recommend this to everyone who are planning to try a different sanitizer and since its a 100% natural product with no harmful effect to nature.
