I’m waiting for you…

Hello everyone!

Today I’ll be taking you through the products I’m waiting for at the moment. You’ve most likely heard of most of them as they’ve been mentioned in previous posts, but some of them were purchased today!  I will also mention a product that I bought ages ago, and still haven’t recieved. So beware of some bitching, cause this chick is frustrated with a big F.

ANYWAY… let’s get to it  ↓

The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
I’m gonna be honest with you guys. I just purchased this Rose Hip Seed oil from The Ordinary, without giving it much thought. Usually I do my job when it comes to researching before buying, but now and again my brain seems to lose it’s ability of doing just that, resulting in the occasional spontaneous purchase! But in my defense, I didn’t buy this product on a complete whim either. Cause Mocka hasn’t stopped raving about it since she got her hands on it, and after I read her review, I was sold. Ka-ching!

The Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Deep Essence
Now, this baby has been away from me for soo long now. We’re talking about a year! I purchased this product back in my early K-beauty days, and although I liked it, I wasn’t sure how effective it was. I guess I can’t remember what ultimately made me decide not to re-purchase it, but the other day i realised that I actually miss it. (Weird how that happens.) In other words; I’m giving it a second chance to blow my socks off, which also means that you can expect a review in the near future! Yay!

The Nature Republic Shine Blossom Blusher in the colour “Apricot”.
Another newbie that I’m waiting for is this cream blush from Nature Republic, which is a brand I’ve known about for a long time, but haven’t gotten around to trying. I’m always interested in trying products from different brands, both popular, obscure, tried and not tried, so I’m really looking forward to this. And according to my calculations this baby should be just around the corner!

The Tonymoly The Fresh Phytoncide Pore Gel Cream
Fresh Phytoncide Pore Gel Cream, you say? Who even are you? OH, THAT’S RIGHT! I ordered you AGES ago. Okay, to be fair, it’s not your fault that you haven’t arrived yet. But some person somewhere along the line during this prosess, messed up. I mean, let’s be honest. We have ships, planes, trains and quite possibly UFOs to make sure that sh*t arrives where it should, when it should. And I can accept human error. Things can happen. I can also accept that it takes a couple of weeks for products from Korea to arrive where I live, but not several months. No, just no. This product was lost on it’s way and it should have been sorted a long time ago. #Rantover
But really, they can send me a new one now if they want, but not recieving a product when you needed it, kind of defeats the purpose of the whole thing, right? That’s like recieving your shot after you got ill. And it’s actually quite disoppointing. And sure, I’ve had a few products arrive on me weeks after their estimated date, but nothing like this.

Okay, moving onto something more pleasant!   ↓

The Tosowoong ACNE Cleansing Foam
Now, this one will definetely be a familiar face for you, if you’ve followed this blog for a while. I have mentioned it in several posts and raved about it in this one! The tube I have standing in my shower at the moment, is running really low and has been for a while now. But instead of re-purchasing it right away, I decided to broaden my horizon even further and went ahead and bought a cleanser from Sulwhasoo that I’ve wanted to try for a long time. And that’s where my beloved Tosowoong comes back into the picture. I just couldn’t bare the thought of hating the Sulwhasoo and not have a backup.

The Petitfèe Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eyepatches
O.M.G. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m looking forward to plastering a pair of these babies on my under eyes. I have tried their sister patches (Black Pearl & Gold) once before, and I loooooved them. I’m hoping that these ones are just as good, AT LEAST. And I’m praying that they arrive tomorrow! #Lastchancebeforetheweekend

If you want to read Mocka’s first impression on the Black Pear & Gold eye patches, you’re welcome!

The J.One Hana Cream
Don’t even get me started on these precious little baby balls!?
I just realised two things after having said that. 1) “Baby balls”? Well, that sounds a bit gross. 2) I can’t know if these (baby)balls are precious before I’ve tried them. But they look damn precious, okay?! And I want them. Now. On my face.

But on the serious note: Have you ever seen a more fun way to apply moisturizer? I just saw these a few weeks ago and I had to buy them. I mean, who doesn’t want balls all over their face? I know I’m preaching about a product I haven’t tried yet, but I don’t care. I still think everyone should try slapping some balls on their face, at least once! That sh*t better arrive tomorrow.

So there you have it; just a little update on the products I’m currently waiting for. Please let me know if you’ve tried any of these babies, and if you enjoy/ed them! And be sure to tune back in for first impressions and reviews on these babies in the near future!

Last night’s mini haul…

Hello everyone!

Last night I went online to do some shopping, so I thought I’d make a post where I share with you the products that made it into my basket and over the finish line! This is like the title of this post suggests; a mini haul, so I only bought three products this time, but if you read this post you’ll know that I’m already waiting for a few other products aswell 🙂

So let’s get to it   ↓

The Tosowoong ACNE Cleansing Foam

If you’ve followed us for a while, you probably know that this one isn’t a newbie, but an oldie. That’s right. I have indeed purchased this cleanser before and it’s the one I’m currently using and loving. However, I’m running low on this beloved product, and although I’m waiting for a cleanser from Sulwhasoo, I just had to repurchase this baby from Tosowoong in case I don’t love the Sulwhasoo. It’s good to have a “safe” and already tried product on hand, should you be so unlucky that the newbie turns your face into an angry badger’s ass!

The Petitfèe GOLD Hydrogel Eye Patches
These guys right here I soooort of bought on a whim but not quite. Mocka bought one of the other variants (the Petitfèe Black Pearl And Gold Hydrogel Eye Patches) a few weeks ago, and since then I haven’t really given them much thought. Until yesterday when I got a visit from a friend who also happens to own the Black Pearl and Gold Eye Patches. She was kind enough to let me try a pair, and oh my god. I’m not sure how much of a visible change they made for my under eyes, but wow they felt amazing throughout the 30 minutes you’re supposed to have them on and I didn’t want to take them off! So I immediatly decided to purchase a box for myself, but instead of getting the Black Pearl And Gold, I decided to try one of the other types in the series. Fingers crossed they feel equally as amazing as the Black Pearl!

The J.ONE HANA CREAM
Need I say anything at all? I mean, have you SEEN this?! It’s a jar of cream in the shape of BALLS! The proper name for them would probably be “capsules” as it says on the jar, BUT HELLO BALLS. I’ve heard great things about these little balls and I totally have my hopes up for this sh*t. I don’t think I’ve ever said that I want to sniff little balls, touch them, crush them and smear them all over my face, but I’m saying it now! I want these little balls all over my face NOW. I mean… it’s probably a very good product. Heh.

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.

So that’s it for my latest mini haul! What do you think? And please let me know if you’ve tried any of these products, and in that case; how it went   🙂

First Impression; Petitfée Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch

Hello darlings!

I know, I know, Vicky just posted a first impression, and here I am, Mrs. Slowpants with yet another one. But don’t you just adore us for testing and sniffing, just to make both yours and our trip through the product jungle just a tad easier?

img_8054.jpg
Anyways! This came in the mail on Friday, but I haven’t gotten around to testing it before now, which means I slapped a pair of these on both yesterday and today, just to be sure that the first impression matched the second. Or maybe because I liked the luxurious sensation it gave my IKEA bags?
Also, can I just say, the name basically translates in my head to Pirate Ship & Loot, so that’s what I’m gonna call it from now on, fyi.

Name: Petitfée Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch (Pirate Ship & Loot)
Product: Eye patches
Good for: Purifying skin, moisture, nutrition, reduce visibility of sleepy eye bags
Description: Black Pearl which contains 20 kinds of mineral and amino acid for no blemish clear and gorgeous skin.
Vitality of gold keeps healthy skin tone and vital eye-skin.
Price: 9-12$ (Ebay, Amazon, Jolse)
Cosdna  (Long list, but not the worst irritants)

It does look luxurious though, and the name screams buy me, or at least it did for me, but then again, advertisers love me because I’m easy to convince.
Also I have mentioned a couple of times that I want good eye stuff. Imagine a day where you wake up after four hours of sleep, shit tired, bags all the way down to your chin, no coffee, no makeup and you’re still rocking the goddess look, with eyes so awake and bright that by passers fear they might pop out at any given second. Yeah, not gonna happen, but just imagine it! I will settle for less bags and more glow, if that’s possible.

Anyway, enough day dreaming. Let’s get down to business!
img_8057
Packaging:
The container is pretty to look at, simple, and solid plastic, which is good. I really like the box it came it, solely based on the fact that it wore the color of gold. What can I say? I’m easy to please.
It also came with it’s very own lifting single hydrogel patches – spatula, that looks like a plastic shovel, which is funny if you’re imagining you’re digging for gold, and you sort of are, considering the color of these badboys! Can I just say “Arrrrgh” or “Ho ho ho”? Either works.
img_8058
Look mama, I found gold! “Aaarrrgh, matey, such a good little pirate you are!”
No? Nothing? I lol’d.

Texture & Smell:
The Pirate Ship & Loot patches don’t really smell much. Not sure if it’s because my pirate senses aren’t really there yet, or if they actually don’t have a particular scent, but they smell like wet rubber, a little bit at least.
The container is also filled with a liquid, which I just assume is the essence, because how else are they supposed to soak in the glorious eye goodness?
Obviously they are jelly, and if you stick them between two fingers and wiggle, they will make that “slap-slap” sound on your skin. I’ve tested it for you guys, sacrificed a patch for science!
But the look of these, mygod, they’re so pretty; see through with a black/grey film and tiny pieces of gold, I could stare at these for at least three minutes!
img_8060
No wonder the imaginary pirates want a piece of this jelly treasure.
Well, my imaginary pirates that is. I have no idea what yours want.

Now, I’ve only tested these twice but I do like the effect I’m experiencing after. I feel a bit plump and hydrated, so far no difference in the shopping bags from a place nobody likes, but it might be too soon to tell. I will keep you posted on that!
So far, it gets a claw up, and three parrot “ho’s”, but I’ll of course be back with a review on this treasure, after it’s been looted some more!

I know, a lot of pirate references today. At it again with that netflixing…

Have you tried this product?
Did someone try to steal your eyes because they sparkled so much after using it?

Let me know!

Peace&Love
