The latest arrivals!

Hello everyone!

Today I’m sharing with you the latest products to arrive in my post box! This time I’ve got one skin care product and four make up products. I’m just going to skim through them one after the other instead of giving you loads of easily forgotten stories about why I bought each one of them. If you’re still interested in that you can read about it here, or wait for the first impressions, which will also be loaded with dozens of juicy details!

Look at all these beauties!

So let’s get to it   ↓

The Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Foam EX
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to try this cleanser. I’ve known about it for soo long without buying it, so now that it’s actually in my hands, it’s definetely show time! In fact, I’m going to start using this tonight, so be on the lookout for a first impression very soon!   ↓


The Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
Tomorrow will be a “make up day” so I’ll be using this tomorrow before going to a dinner party. Let’s hope it makes my eyeshadow pop, not drop! This needs to add lasting power to my eyeshadow, keep it streak free and prevent it from turning into a blotchy mess to impress me. But will it do so? Fingers crossed!   ↓


The Aprilskin No Smudge Eye Doll Brush Pen Liner in black
Another product that will be tested tomorrow! There’s really not a lot more I can tell you about it until then. Maybe apart from the fact that it’s supposed to be smudge proof, which is always a good thing!   ↓


The Etude House Double Lasting Foundation in the colour Fair

Yet another make up product from Etude House that I will be wearing tomorrow. I might not know if it will break me out or not after just one day of wearing, but I’m very difficult to please when it comes to foundations, so I’ll know if I like it’s performance or not by the end of the night!   ↓


The Holika Holika Heartful Chiffon Cream Lipstick in the colour Dark Cherry Choux
I know that I love the colour and I know that I love the performace, cause I already have one of these. ‘Nuff said!   ↓

So far I love these products, BUT they haven’t past the test yet! Let’s see if my love for them will continue after a few weeks   🙂

Lots of empty shells!

There you have it; a short and sweet post about my latest arrivals. Stay tuned for more, plus first impressions on these babies, and finally full reviews after they’ve been thoroughly tested, one by one! Btw, sorry for dark-ish photos, please forgive me!

And remember; I always recommend taking a closer look at any new product before purchasing it, just in case you’re allergic or sensitve to one or more of the ingredients. Personally I always check before buying a new product, because I know my skin is of the extra vulnerable type as I do have dehydrated combination skin with acne prone areas. You can find the ingredients, what they are and what they do at CosDna


Today’s mini haul!

Hey guys!

If you’ve followed this blogg for a while you might know that I’ve been interested in trying more Korean makeup as I’m in love with their skin care. But in order to do just that, I’d have to get my hands on some more, as I don’t really have that much. So today I went mini crazy and did a mini haul. I purchased one skin care product and five make up products during today’s haul!

Let’s start off with the skin care product   ↓

The Gentle Cleansing Foam EX from Sulwhasoo
Now, I’ve been meaning to try this for quite some time now, but I just haven’t gotten around to it. I’ve been very happy with the last cleanser I bought, which is the ACNE Cleansing Foam from Tosowoong, but as that one is running pretty low I decided to try the Sulwhasoo because I’ve been wanting to for many months. Fingers crossed!

And now the make up products   ↓

April Skin No Smudge Eye Doll Brush Pen Liner

I’m in need of a new liquid eye liner pen, and I’ve heard amazing things about this one. So the choice was easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Holika Holika Heartful Chiffon Cream Lipstick in the colour Dark Cherry Choux
I already own one of these (the Almond Choux) and I love it! A review on the product will be out in the near future.

Etude House Double Lasting Foundation in the colour Fair
I’m so sick of the matte foundation I’m currently using so I want to try another. I’ve heard that this baby right here is very good. Ka-ching!

Nature Republic Shine Blossom Blusher in the colour Apricot

Again, I’ve only heard great things about this product. Let’s hope they’re true. I only have a cream stick blusher at the moment, and although I like it, I’d like to try another colour aswell as another type.

Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
The same applies to this product; heard good things about it and although I have an eye primer, I’d like to try a different one. Oh, and the price? Cheeeeaap!

So that’s it for my mini haul today! First impressions and reviews will follow after recieving the products, as usual. And if you’re interested in first impressions on the last batch of products I got in the post the other day, stay tuned, cause I’ll be starting off with the Supple Preparation Facial Toner from Klairs!


Two top Tosowoong products!

Hey guys!

Today I’m going to talk about not one, but two products that I’ve been using twice a day for a few weeks now, which I’ve come to love. They’re both from Tosowoong and they are the ACNE Cleansing Foam and the Embossing Pore Brush! In this post, and in this one I said that I would write a full review on both of them, but I’ve decided to do something a little different this time. Instead of doing a seperate review on each one, I will in this post talk about my experience when it comes to using them combined and throw in two mini reviews, one for each.
I think doing it this way is more fair to the two products in question, as I’ve only tried them together, not on their own. I didn’t – and still don’t see the point in using a pore brush by itself, cause at least half of the point with a facial wash is using a cleanser, right? And when it comes to using the cleanser on it’s own… Let’s just say that after I found out what a good pore brush feels like on my skin, I know I’m never going to cleanse my face without one ever again!

Sorry for forgetting to give the cleanser a good ol’ wipe down!

So let’s start off with taking a quick look at the Tosowoong ACNE Cleansing Foam   ↓


The basics   ↓

Product type: Foam cleanser.
Purpose: Cleanse, treat pimples and prevent further breakouts.

More details   ↓

Feeling on the skin: Lovely and luxurious.
Container: Plastic tube with a nice silver theme.
Packaging: Came without a box, but was sealed with plastic.


I must say that I really like the Tosowoong ACNE Cleansing Foam for several reasons! It smells lovely and when mixed with water it lathers up to a soft, delicious foam. I really feel like it does a very thorough job of cleansing my face without drying it out too much. Of course I expect at least some dryness after washing my face, but I can honestly say that this cleanser is the least drying out of all the cleansers I’ve tried. Score! And what’s more? My skin looks sooo healthy after using it. We’re talking squeeky clean.

As you can tell, I’ve used this a fair bit!

Moving on to the Tosowoong Embossing Pore Brush   ↓


The basics   ↓

Product type: Manual pore cleansing brush

Feeling on the face: VERY luxurious and extremely soft.
Packaging: Simple and clean designed black and white box.


I LOVE the Embossing Pore Brush from Tosowoong! I must admit that I’ve never tried any kind of facial brush before, so I can’t compare it to anything other than my hands. Honestly, I’ve never been a girl who really enjoys cleansing her face. I think it’s messy and wet and it gets in my eyes, nose and mouth, but ever since I got my hands on this pore brush, it’s become a joy. Facial cleansing is now easier, les messier, more comfortable and more effective. I love how the super soft bristles glide across my face without irritating the skin, and when I come out of the shower, my face looks super clean, fresh, pink and plump.

Sooo soft ❤

So how do these two products perform together?
Personally I think that the ACNE Cleansing Foam and the Embossing Pore Brush from Tosowoong are the perfect match. I think they work very well combined and my guess is that they are both great products on their own aswell. I’ve used this dynamic duo for a few weeks now and my skin (which began purging nearly immediatly after I introduced these products to my routine), is still purging away like there’s no tomorrow. I can really tell that a lot of the gunk that my skin was harbouring is on it’s way OUT! This has never happened to me before, and I’m literally so impressed with these two!


Now I’m not gonna lie, I’ll probably test other cleansers although I’m very happy with the Tosowoong ACNE Cleansing Foam, cause you never know, I might come across something I love even more. In that case this cleanser will be a very hard act to follow! But I know in my heart that I’ll never cleanse my face again without a pore brush, preferably this one. I can tell that it’s made a difference, and you could honestly pair this brush with any cleanser and the brush would make it even better. Result!

Mini haul: this is what I’m waiting for next
