AMW Reviews: Kustie Strawberry Body Butter and Body Scrub

Good morning gorgeous people!  How was the weekend?  Mine, felt like regular weekdays because I have been out most of the days and I've been busy with makeup gigs, events and of course, gatherings!  I hope yours is as exciting as mine, and of course, let's not forget to give thanks to God for giving us such a nice week ahead!  Christmas is coming, I am super excited!

Recently, I got an email from Lance of LifeStrong Marketing Inc., to give their products a test!  I am usually uneasy to try on Body Scrubs as I try to pry away from drying out my skin furthermore!  After reading the product details, I've decided to give these a try for our lovely readers out there who may find these useful!  And of course, there's a special surprise after this review for one of our readers to try the set as well (in different variant).  Scroll down to read more about my experience on FDA approved, 100% Natural body  products! 

Kustie Strawberry Body Butter and
Kustie Strawberry Body Scrub

A closer look on the Kustie Body Butter in Strawberry


Kustie Strawberry Body Butter says ---
The creamy strawberry butter is rich in natural ingredients that nourishes and moisturizes the skin.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Sealed with freshness when newly purchased.
  • Smells super good!  Best smelling strawberry scented body butter to date (in my opinion)
  • Moisturizing enough that lasts the whole day!
  • Does not feel heavy or oily on skin.
  • Gets absorbed to the skin easily.
  • Inexpensive for a good body butter.
  • Skin looks healthy after prolong usage.
Cons
  • The packaging makes it a bit difficult to carry around during travel.
  • Unhygienic as you need to dip your fingers to get some products.  A bit difficult for girls with long fingernails like myself!


Tips
  • Use a spatula to get product instead of dipping your fingers for hygiene purpose.
  • Best used after a warm shower while skin is still damp.
  • Re-apply on dry areas like your knees, elbows or heels during night time before you go to sleep.
  • Wear socks at night if you choose to apply this on your feet.
  • For better results, use both day and night after taking a shower.
  • Great to be given as gift because the "presentation" of the product looks nice.
Will I repurchase?
Yes. 

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who loves body butter!  This does not feel heavy on skin so it works to all skin types.  For strawberry scent lovers!

Where to purchase and how much?
Kustie Body Butter 200ml for Php299.00 (approx $7.00) available at Watsons Malls, SM Beauty Department Store, Ever Gotesco Department Stores and other major retail outlets.

Light pinkish color of the Kustie Strawberry Body Butter
reminded me of a whipped cream.


Texture is just right and easy to apply all over the body


Now let's proceed to their bestselling product, 
the Kustie Strawberry Body Scrub


Kustie Strawberry Body Scrub says ---

Strawberry body scrub is has natural seed granules that effectively exfoliate aging skin cells.  It has strawberry amino acids that moisturizes and smoothens skin.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Very nice packaging.  Sealed for freshness once purchased.
  • Does smoothen out my skin after shower.
  • Skin feels moisturized after shower even without following up with a lotion or body butter.
  • Skin does not dry out!
  • The strawberry seeds feels luxurious onto skin, imagine having your own expensive scrubs at the comfort of your own bathroom.
  • The seeds does not feel painful against your skin.
  • Inexpensive for a good body scrub.
Cons
  • The scent!  Has a weird plastic-y strawberry scent. 
  • Packaging, unhygienic as you need to dip your fingers again and again during shower.
Tips
  • Use a spatula to prevent water from getting in the Body Scrub when you take a shower.
  • A bit runny in texture so be careful not to waste the product while taking a shower.
  • Gently rub the product in a circular motion against your skin, never be in a hurry when using this product to prevent from rubbing too hard.
  • If you feel it dries up your skin a bit, then follow up with a "creamy soap" or "liquid soap".  
  • Do this once a week or once every 2 weeks as needed.
  • Follow with your choice of lotion or body butter after you get out of the bath.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  As this is one of the few body scrubs that does not dry out my skin.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Oily, Normal or Dry skin individuals who like to have a nice, luxurious scrub at the comfort of their own home once a week or once every 2 weeks.

Where to purchase and how much?
Kustie Body Scrub 200ml for Php349.00 (approx $ 8.10), 450 ml for Php599.00(approx $14.00) available at Watsons Malls, SM Beauty Department Store, Ever Gotesco Department Stores and other major retail outlets.




Overall, I am quite impressed with the products!  I love the fact that they are 100% made of natural ingredients and of course, they are FDA approved and the price isn't expensive so it gives people the chance to try on good products at a not so rocket-sky high price!  I love the Kustie Body Butter a lot and the Kustie Body Scrub could be a cult favorite of mine, I guess the downside is just the scent!  The strawberry scent itself is wonderful, but my nose just can't understand the "plastic" or "chemical' smell!  Could be from the packaging or some of the ingredients included I won't be able to understand.

For it's price, it's worth to give these 2 products a test!  Very luxurious indeed!   You can click photo below to enlarge to see their other product offerings and variants.


Here's a good news to Philippine readers, one reader will get the chance to win the Kustie Cucumber Body Butter and Body Scrub!  Kindly wait for instructions on my next post!  I do apologize that this is only open to local readers due to shipment restrictions!


Thanks LifeStrong Marketing Inc. for giving me the chance to test these products, and thanks for agreeing to give a set to my loyal AMW readers!
