Box Opening: MooGoo Skincare

I was very exited to receive my parcel from MooGoo skincare today!

A couple of years ago, I sought out an aluminum-free deodorant, because of the apparent health risks associated with the aluminum. I did a quick online search and decided to give MooGoo’s roll-on a try. The deodorant I ordered online came with a sample bottle of their milk wash (cleanser), which I find very soothing to use after hair removal (especially shaving). The deodorant is nice because it isn’t very pungent, and doesn’t irritate after underarm waxing. And the bottle lasts a long time – I’m still using the same bottle of roll-on after two years!

At the time I’m writing this, the weather has been getting very hot – So that means frequent leg shaving for me – and skin irritation. So I decided to order a proper bottle of their cleanser, and a spare bottle of deodorant while I was at it, and they threw in a couple of goodies.

The contents of my MooGoo box.

Usually they include at least one free sample in their order (I oped for the moisturiser), but they had a couple of seasonal specials: SPF 40 sunscreen, and face scrub (containing coffee!?) – So yay! This company is so awesome!

Also, I like what they did with their packaging…

This way up (or I’ll churn into butter)

Overall I’m very satisfied with the quality of these products, and the prices are very reasonable! I’m also happy to be supporting a local Aussie business! I realise that there are stockists in my local area, but I only found that out after my online purchase – Plus I don’t think I can get the free goodies unless I order online.

Australian Teabag Matcha!

Notice: I’m not getting paid to write this post. I’m just really excited to find matcha at the local supermarket!

Okay, it’s not 100% matcha, it’s a sencha blend, but it still has the bitter-with-a-hint-of-sweetness taste that I love. It also makes the tea a nice green colour.

It’s Ito En Australian Green Tea!

It’s everything I love about Japanese green tea, in teabag form! I can pick it up at the local Coles supermarket, rather than having to trek out to a specialist tea shop or Japanese goods store. I also love that the tea plant is farmed in Australia (so it means Aussies get jobs!) and processed in Japan (so we know it’s authentically made!)
