The Face Shop Peeling Day White Jewel: REVIEW

I don't know why I feel sooo much better and fresh when I'm on a holiday, I think most people also feel the same way, holiday is just fantastic isn't it Photobucket

Today's review would be the face shop's peeling day white jewel. There are actually 4 kinds of peeling gel provided, but I bought the white jewel because it smells soo good, and compared to the other one, the white jewel's benefit would fit on me better (as i always seen my face dull because of the pollution.. sigh) . the rest is honey black sugar,water in punica, and water in pomegranate.

The shopkeeper tells me that the peeling day itself was more of a cleanser. Best way to use it is before you apply mask. Any mask. Could be sheet,peel-off, or wash-off. To mantain a better absorption of the mask.
Sounds useful right?

looks like a gel isn't  it?
the exfoliated dead cells, sorry for this pic thou lol
I'm not sure if its really a dead skin, or its just build by itself. But its really gentle, i'm loving it Photobucket
White Jewel has a smell of floral-like scent. What I don't really like about this peeling gel is that, it tends to get messy, you know that dead cell exfoliation that comes out when you peel/exfoliate something, whenever I use this, the exfoliation dust is easily falls and get into my hair line. Plain messy.

But I think that's what mostly peeling stuffs did.. So I couldn't help it but to wear a hairnet.

After using this, I usually use toner, like Etude's mal:gem toner, or Hadalabo's hyaluronic acid lotion. Because even though its a peeling gel that sounds like it doesn't leave a casts, well it does. And I always need to clean up the excess. what i meant is, half of the exfoliation (that white stuff) some of it tends to dry quickly, and leaving some sorta powdery-like casts. It doesn't make my skin dry too, as it has moisturizing agent.

And finally you should put your mask on!
Happy vacation, thank you for the comments Photobucket

Etude House Color my Brows in Rich Brown: REVIEW

Ahoy, i really wanted to post this review since yesterday. i got this item (actually with another one item which i'll post here sooner, its called Golden Ratio Contour) for only $6. lol. well.. logically yes its only $6. why? becase i had this sooner after i purchased a few items in etude several weeks ago, and i dont know if this is just my luck or what, they are holding a 100% cashback. HAHAA somebody throw a pie on me pleaseee

i'm sorry the picture turns out blurred >_<
So, they hold a cashback back then on July 29th. along with a midnight sale in MKG. i bought Shinistar LipBalm, Kissfull tint chou, and also some etude stick concealer which i forgot the line name is Photobucket
and they gave this voucher-looking paper worth about $40, that could be redeemed 100% on the next purchase, until 30th August.
So basically i bought this item along with golden contour maker (which actually cost about $45 for both item) only for about $6 because of what i did back then on cashback event.
Hope this didn't confuse you.. lol

Anyway, to speed up the review.. here's the comparison. Oh this is obviously noticeable.
under tungsten light.
i'm sorry for (another) blurred shot. i don't know whats wrong with my hands its either shaking or glitching..
pardon my sleepy eyes. lol
can you tell the difference? i promise there isn't any photoshop stuffs added onto my eyebrows! it means.. this item is extremely outrageous!
So, Which side of my eyebrows that wears Color My Brows? I didn't tell which one with or without but i 'm certain that you'll notice and know which. heheee

I really really really love it so much. all this time i wanted that korean straight eyebrows look, like kim so eun. she doesn't have those super straight eyebrows, she still have those straight accent, but a little bit of curves.

..Or i could just have Tsubasa Masuwaka's eyebrows.. But if i really wanted to have Tsubasa Masuwaka's eyebrow look, i might need Lighter shade of this item, called 02 Light Brown. I bought Etude's Color my Brows in 01 Rich Brown. And to me its kinda troublesome if i had to use pencils or eyebrow powder. and this Color my Brow really helps me with that.

The appliance and the finished look really resembles a mascara. with that spoolie brush, or mascara wand and the packaging stuff etc. And after a few minutes it starts to harden and dries off. and the color turns a little bit darker too. Which makes my eyebrows more natural looking. Rad!

Aside from the cool stuffs, there's also a bit cons to it. When it comes to removal. Sadly, its hard to remove. Oil-based make-up remover should do the stuff. I used Maybelline's make-up remover, and a bit of facial wash too. and guess what? its gone, BUT still gives my eyebrows a hint of brown-ish tint. It could be removed i guess, using another Oil-based stuffs like i did.
Kinda reminds me of chocolate fondue too.. lol

So anyway, please follow and comment, etc thank you so much for your comments, i do followbacks just mention me. And if you can guess which side is with/without one, tell me via comment post.
Thanks again Photobucket

Haul Post: Lots of Masks!

I'm so delightful to undergo this holiday (Yep its already holiday here in my school) as well as posting a new post! Its the 19th day of Ramadhan, hope its going well for my moslem readers outta there Photobucket
Anyway, this is my first haul post. and its full of masks, either its sheet masks or peel-off mask. Actually i bought these around someday on July, but i posted it on August *punched* i'm sorry, its not because i'm lazy.. well.. yes i'm lazy in terms of school, but its different when it comes to blogging Photobucket

I also wanted to write a brief review for each mask i bought Photobucket

• The Face Shop Peeling Day: White Jewel (its a peeling gel, it works wonder! The smell is just perfect. I call it 'the first step toner'. Toner is usually used after a mask, so.. It means, its just like a toner, but used before applying a mask. To enhance the absorption of the mask. After this step done, I usually cleanse again with Etude skin mal:gem toner, or Etude AC clinic toner if i'm on a breakout)

• The Skin Food: Peppermint Pore Diet (a peel-off mask, already wrote the review)

• The Skin Food: GoldKiwi Mask Sheet (i got a free sample of the same line, Gold Kiwi Cream + Serum. Great for dry skin, also for brightening. Has a moisturizing effect. i'm kinda surprised of how its so thick and slightly sticky. the sheet is perfect, its not a 3D one, but fits perfectly for almost all face shapes i think.)

• The Skin Food: Rice Mask Wash-off (i only got the sample size of it, brightens face, I rarely use this if I'm tired, or if I'm too lazy to massage my face lol. Softens my skin, and also pretty impressive i think.)

• The Face Shop: Fresh Fruit Acerola Mask Sheet (has a really really delightful scent. Soothes, and brighten my face at the same time. Feel so fresh too. compared than the other mask, this impress me the most)

• The Face Shop: Mung Bean Mask (lovely scent. Soothes skin, makes my skin supple. Almost the same as the aloe vera mask)

• The Face Shop: Nature Lemon Mask (lovely fresh scent, brightens a bit. But its not really good if compared to the Acerola Mask)

• The Face Shop: Cucumber Mask (A deep mosturizing mask, didn't go very well for oily skin. Smooth and supple. No brightening effect, but more of a fresher. Dry skin would fit with this mask. Leaving skin dewy and has that healthy glow look. But the essence is just plain sticky.)

• The Face Shop: Aloe Vera Mask (Almost the same as what the Cucumber Mask do, but this is more 'fresh' and perfect for a day-off or relaxing. i think all skin types could use this, unlike the cucumber mask, which was meant for dry skin i guess.. what i love about this mask is, i got this for free lol)

The above list is the masks only, the other product as seen on the picture but not in the list, will appears on my blog as the review of it, well not all of 'em, only a few that i consider the best. So, just wait for it ok Photobucket and since its the start of my holiday, i'll be more active as possible than the usual, i'll try Photobucket

I guess the face shop's masks are meant for freshener with additional effect, like brightens, or something like it. For those products above, the winner is the Acerola Mask. i cannot wait to post about it later on..

Oh, and i'm obsessed (not actually the word i wanna use but this is the best my brain could think of lol) of Xiaxue's guide to life lately. She's amazing isn''t she? Photobucket

Oh well, i guess that's it .. Thanks for all the comments Photobucket hopes that my blog made your day!
