Fruits & Passion Cucina Hand Soap Review

Fruits & Passion Cucina Hand Soap


Hello darlings, I’m back from the vortex! I’ve been so busy lately and I have to give time to my other writing activities because I had to make a concept analysis, lol. I will be posting some life updates soon. How’s the election for y’all? How’s life in general? Guess what, I’ve got some amazing hand soaps to review in this post. In fact, I have been using these soaps for more than a year now and I love them so much.

The cucina line of hand soaps from Fruits & Passion are some of the best hand soaps I’ve ever tried. I discovered the brand when I was looking for affordable hand soaps with really good quality. The whole search process was quite a challenge because there aren’t really many high-quality soaps out there that are easy on the price points. Also, I wanted a soap that is not only gentle on the hands, but also has a fabulous scent. These criteria deemed to be difficult to fulfill and my whole search took forever, that is, until, I found these gem at amazon.

The Fruits & Passion cucina hand soaps come in a convenient mini-jug type of packaging and they are definitely affordable. They come in different scents like: Sea Salt and Amalfi Lemon, Lime Zest & Cypress, Coriander and Olive Tree, etc. Each mini jug can last about two months of usage, that is, even with constant handwashing.


Fruits & Passion Cucina Hand Soap sanguinelli orange and fennel


Sanguinelli Orange and Fennel – This smells like a blend of fresh oranges and olive oil. It’s an interesting mix and totally unique to me, and probably for you too. I suggest you try this and see for yourself. Personally, this is really really good.


Fruits and passion coriander and Olive Tree hand soap


Sea Salt and Amalfi Lemon – This is my most favorite scent of the entire cucina line of hand soaps. I definitely think that this smells like Tom Ford’s ultra-fabulous Mandarino di Amalfi Eau de Parfum, which is a shock for me because I truly love that particular TF scent. I’m so glad to have found this hand soap and I use this everyday. I never got bored of the scent. Ever.


Fruits & Passion Cucina Hand Soap


Coriander and Olive Tree – This is my second favorite scent from the line and it really looks just like an olive-oil, texture-wise. The scent of this is also very good. With a mix of coriander, this will transport you to an idyllic Mediterranean island – sipping mimosa while enjoying that crema catalana, lol.

The other scent I love from line is Lime Zest and Cypress, which is quite similar to the Coriander and Olive Tree. I also love the hand creams and hand butters from this brand, and I highly recommend them because they’re so creamy and so moisturizing. Overall, I really like the organic and clean quality of these products. I also love their price tags and the scents are so luxe that you’d wonder if they are being sold at high-end stores. How fabulous!






Kaja Beauty Piña Colada Collection Review + Swatches

Kaja Pina Colada


Hello. I’m so excited to review some newness from Kaja Beauty in this post. Their latest Piña Colada collection is absolutely giving me Summer and self-care vibes even though we’re in the middle of Autumn. I can’t help but wish for more sunshine and bright warm days every time I look at these bright yellow goodies, and guess what? The scents of these are TDF. Curious much?


Kaja Beauty Balmy Bento Lip Balm+Scrub Pina Colada


Balmy Bento Lip Balm + Scrub – The upper portion of this cute product is a very moisturizing lip balm that smells like coconut. The texture is so light, non-sticky, and it keeps the lips hydrated without chapping. The bottom part is a lip scrub that smells like fresh pineapples. It is SO good and it is so exfoliating without being too harsh on the lips. The combination of coconut and pineapple in this fun balm+scrub product is so irresistible and so addicting. I highly recommend this.

Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio in Alotta Colada – This sunkissed neutral-tone eyeshadow trio with coconut scent is one of the most delightful eyeshadows I’ve ever tried. I love a good quality eyeshadow with a yummy scent but they’re usually hard to come by. The shades of this cute stackable compact are something I would definitely wear every day and even more so now in this pandemic where we’re all about “the eyes”. I find that all of the shades are so creamy and so easy to apply or blend on the lids, plus, you can layer them easily. I appreciate that the shades are in neutral tone which can definitely work for any complexion.

Kaja Beauty Mist Me Hydrating Face Mist


Mist Me Hydrating Face Mist – This face mist is making me wish for sunshine on a beach while sipping Piña Colada, lol. You can tell I badly need a vacay, but don’t we all, right? This mist is probably the next best thing to that dreamy vacay I’m wishing to have. I love the yummy scent of this, which is kinda like having a spritz of pineapple and coco juice on your face. This hydrates my face without that sticky feeling and it helps to prevent dry Autumn skin especially if you apply this regularly. I have yet to test and see if this works really well on setting my makeup. I will update y’all soon.


Kaja Beauty Piña Colada Collection review


Overall, I highly recommend these delightful collection from Kaja Beauty. I think all of the products in this collection are very well-done. I love the delicious scent and I love the quality of this makeup collection. I’m rating each of them as 5 stars, especially in terms of packaging and overall design.


*Big thanks to Kaja Beauty for sending these products. All opinions in this post are by the editor.

Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies Review

Goli supplements review


Here are some very delicious vitamin/supplement gummies I’ve been enjoying lately – the apple cider vinegar gummies from Goli. If you’re the type that likes vitamin gummies like me, well, I bet you will love these delicious red supplements. For me, not all gummies are created equal, and while there are some that certainly looks enticing on the outside, they’re certainly not very tasty inside. For that reason, I’m really quite picky about the vitamin gummies I take. These Goli gummies are definitely at the top of my list, and the ingredients are exactly what I needed.


Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies supplements


First of all, these gummies are ideal for the brain. These are loaded with Vitamins B9 (Folic Acid) and B12 (Cyanocobalamin) which are very important for red blood cell production and energy maintenance. These are so important in today’s pandemic world and all its stresses. We have to take care of ourselves and nourish our brains. Mindset is everything, so, we better feed our brain with good nutritious foods, supplements, and also good thoughts.


Goli Gummies


Second, these Goli gummies are perfect for our digestive health, because these have pectin which is a natural prebiotic that supports healthy gut and overall immune health. Also, these have natural fibers which further support good digestion.


Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies review


Lastly, these delicious gummies are ideal for improving our energy due to the amino acids in apple cider. For me, these really made a difference in terms of my alertness and focus. I also noticed that these reduced my mental fatigue. I also love that these are so delicious and are really addicting. Ideally, you should take two of these three times a day, but I feel like I could take more, lol. Also, these are perfect as mini desserts or as a post-workout snack.


Bottom line, if you need high-quality vitamin gummies, take a closer look at these Goli Apple Cider Vinegar gummy vitamins. There’s absolutely no vinegar aftertaste in these, just pure deliciousness.
