What’s in the box?

Hey guys!

As you might have guessed from the title of this post; I recieved a package today. I’ve been waiting for it for ages and finally it’s here, past due! Hopefully one of the other packages will arrive tomorrow. Last chance before the weekend! Until then, let’s find out what’s inside this one   ↓

Can you tell what’s in the box?

Let’s get to it   ↓

The Mamonde Happy & Smart Cleansing Tissues (refill):
If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you might already know that I love these facial cleansing tissues! They’re soo convenient when you can’t be bothered to give your face a proper wash (which of course you should). However, I ONLY use these to cleanse my face when I’ve got makeup on in emergencies. Because double cleansing with a good oil cleanser and a foam – or gel cleanser is definetely the better way to go if you want to avoid those sneaky impurities! But when it comes to mornings, I personally find that these do a good enough job of cleansing my face because I never go to bed with makeup on anyway   🙂

The Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum:

I know that for many people this is a Holy Grail product, but I’m honestly not sure how much of a difference it makes for my skin. I just use it because it’s a nice extra layer of hydration, it smells AMAZING, it lasts a loooong time and most importantly; it doesn’t break me out! This is my third bottle and I will keep repurchasing it until I find a serum that I love more   🙂

The Etude House Curl Fix Long Lash Mascara:
This is the second time I’ve bought this product, and it’s a great one. I’ve tried MANY mascaras throughout the years and this one is the cheapest and the best. Hands down.

Today’s mini haul!

Hey guys!

I’ve just bought myself four new products, none of which I’ve tried before. Needless to say; I’m very excited and can’t wait to find them in my letter box! As you might be able to tell, I’m not very big on mega hauls. I prefer to shop for the products I want/need in smaller ammounts, and more frequent. Just how I like it!

Here are the products   ↓

Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream:
I bought this product because my current eye cream (Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream) is running very low, and I wanted to try a new one. I’m not unhappy with the Mizon, I’ve just heard great things about the Innisfree Orchic Eye Cream and I’ve been meaning to give that one a try for ages!

Scinic Honey All In One Ampoule:
This is another Holy Grail product for many, and that’s why I bought it. It really is as simple as that! Just like the Orchid Eye Cream from Innisfree, I’ve only heard good things about this ampoule, so when I discovered that my current ampoule is nearly empty, I naturally threw the Scinic Honey All In One Ampoule in my basket and ran for the hills! Did I mention that according to CosDna this product has very few irritants?

Etude House Pure Water Baobab Moist Cream:
I first heard about this product through Mocka, which (I think) read about it in a Holy Grail Thread on Reddit. I think…
The Pure Water Baobad Moist Cream from Etude House is from what I understand a gel type cream. I already have enough of these, and I should really focus my energy on finding an actualy creamy cream that will get along with my skin. BUT I’ve heard great things about it, and CosDna says it’s a peach! In other words: I just have to try it!

The Saem Jeju Horse Oil Soothing Gel Cream:
When it comes to this product in particular there’s really not too much to say at the moment. There’s no information about it on CosDna, and usually I wouldn’t buy a product that’s not listed on there. However, I read a few reviews on it and quite a few people seem to really like it! Yes, it’s another gel cream. BUT from what I understand, this product is a slightly heavier gel type cream. AND it’s not clear but white-ish, which could mean that this provides more moisture than the usual clear gel cream. There’s only one way to find out; I’m going to put it to the test!

What’s more?

I’m still waiting for a few packages I ordered a couple of weeks ago, but I have a feeling that at least one of them will arrive today or tomorrow! It’s past due! The product I’m taking about is Tonymoly’s The Fresh Phytoncide Pore Gel Cream   ↓

bphytonside

When it comes to this product, I wasn’t completely sure if I needed it. As I mentioned before I already own enough gel creams. However, I know my skin really loves gel type creams as opposed to the more heavy, white, creamy creams, and the one I’ve been using as a day time moisturizer for ages now (the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Water Jelly Cream) just isn’t moisturizing enough. So that’s how I came to look for another alternative, and The Fresh Phytoncide Pore Gel Cream from Tonymoly had great reviews. Plus according to CosDna, this baby has NONE irritants or acne triggers. Of course you can never be sure with any product until you’ve tried it, but I do have high hopes for this bad boy!
The rest of the products are due very soon! I’m taking about the Etude House Curl Fix Long Lash Mascara, the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum, the Mamonde Happy & Smart Cleansing Tissues and the Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel   ↓

If you want to know why I purchased these products you can read about it in this post.

So there you have it! A little update on the products I’m expecting to arrive very soon, and the ones that will arrive in a couple of weeks! Stay tuned for first impressions and reviews of these products in the near future.

Mini haul: Three oldies and one newcomer!

Hey guys! 😀

I just bought a few things that I want to share with you, and the reason why I bought each and one of them! As you probably already know from the title of this post; three of these are repurchased products. I’m talking about the Etude House Curl Fix Long Lash Mascara, the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum and the Mamonde Happy & Smart Cleansing Tissues. I love all of these for different reasons and I’ll tell you why I repurchased them in minute. First I’d like to introduce the newcomer. It’s the Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel!

20170419_174931

Let’s start with the oldies   ↓

The Etude House Curl Fix Long Lash Mascara:
I love this mascara for many different reasons. First off, it’s very affordable and it lasts a long time. The applicator is on the small side so it’s easy to get the product all over your lashes and inbetween, without getting it in your eyes. It’s waterproof like you wouldn’t believe! I’m talking; it’s still on my lashes 100 % after taking a shower or even after swimming. You definetely need an oil cleanser to get this bad boy off! And the best part? It looks great on! It contains small fibers that stick to the end of your lashes to make them look even longer. LOVE.

The Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum:
For this particular product I love it, but I also have some mixed feelings about it, if that makes sense? Allthough I’ve used this serum for over a year and this is the third time I’ve bought it, I’m still not quite sure how much of a difference it makes on my skin, but I love the consistency and I love the scent! I guess it’s soothing and it hydrates my skin a bit, but it’s like I can feel it’s not quite enough? I think I can do better but for now it’s a good serum to have in my skin care regimen and I love it for not breaking me out and for being very long lasting.

The Mamonde Happy & Smart Cleansing Tissues:
If you read my post about my morning skin care routine from yesterday, you already know how much I adore these cleansing tissues. They’re just amazingly convenient, sooo easy to use, do a great job of cleaning my face in the morning and they smell ridiculously good! This is the third time I’ve bought them and this time I got the refill packet because I’ve already got the box.

And now, the newcomer   ↓

The Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel:
I’m going to be completely honest with you; I only had one sample of this product and only tried it once before throwing it in my shopping cart. I just couldn’t help myself. I never expected to find a sun block that could replace my beloved Missha All Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk, but this mofo made my head spin. The Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel is thinner than my Missha, something I really appreciate when it comes to sun block. It felt better on my skin, looked great on my skin and OH MY GOD it smells sooooo good! Instant buy. Of course it’ll take some time finding out if it doesn’t break me out, but I doubt it will. According to CosDna it’s even a little bit kinder than my Missha, so it should be okay!

So there you have it! My report on today’s mini haul. Hope you enjoyed!

My morning skin care routine!

Hey guys! 😀

A couple of days ago I wrote a post about my night time skin care routine, and now it’s time to share with you my morning routine, which is a little different but not a lot 🙂

So let’s get to it!

The first step in my morning skin care routine is cleansing my face. Some of you may disagree with me on this one, but personally I don’t think it’s necisary to wash my face with a gel – or foam cleanser when I’ve just gotten out of bed. I never, ever go to bed with make up on, so the only thing I wake up with on my face, is product residue from the creams etc I put on the night before. I usually just wipe my face clean with a facial tissue. The ones I use are the Mamonde Happy & Smart Cleansing Tissues. Ah! So convenient!   ↓

Then I move on to tone my face. I use the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner, just like in my night time routine!  ↓

Next, I apply a serum. The one I use is the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum   ↓

20170418_212900

 

After that I apply an essence. At the moment I’m using the COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence   ↓

20170418_212910

 

Now this next step I consider optional in my morning routine; my Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule. I always use this in my night time routine, but sometimes in the morning I will skip this step. The reason being this ampoule is a little bit sticky, and on days I wear make up, I find that it’s better to avoid sticky products.   ↓

As I’m moving towards the end of my morning routine, I slap on a moisturizing cream. Since I might be putting on make up, I like to use a thinner type of cream. In this case the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Water Jelly Cream   ↓

20170418_212943

 

After all that it’s time to apply some eye cream. I use the Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream   ↓

20170418_213000

 

Last but not least, I slap some sun block on my face. After all, it’s daytime and it’s important to protect your face from the sun. The one I use is the Missha All Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk 50   ↓

20170418_214304

 

 

So there you have it; my morning skin care routine! As I said in the post about my night time routine, I’m always buying and trying new products, so my skin care regimen will change as the time flies by. I’m always curious to put new products to the test (at least the ones that are new to me) and I’m constantly looking to tweek both of my routines to perfection!
