The facts about the cream haven’t changed since last, but the impression on the other hand..
I only used it for a week and a half, not going to lie, and yesterday I was contemplating if this belonged in the review or rant of the week section. That’s how little we got along in the end.. Which is a shame, because there’s a certain appeal when it comes to me and fermented ingredients, they’re supposed to be these mythical creatures of awesome, dedicating their life to help fix my skin issues. That’s the picture I have in my head at least, the truth is much less colorful and funny. But the fact that fermented ingredients are good guys helping you help your skin isn’t unfunny. Imagine regular ingredients with superpowers. There has to be some truth to this, considering that western skincare brands are slowly getting on that hype train.

Anyway, for those of you that haven’t read the first impression on this proudct, here is a link. For those of you that have, yes, there is a little copy-paste here and there, but I’ve made sure to sprinkle new opinions and thoughts almost everywhere!

As I mentioned in the earlier post, this one made it’s way to me because I was bored with the eye cream I already had. It didn’t really give me any visible results, and I was having unrealistic expectations of fireworks and no bag eyes, which says a lot only having tried one AB eye cream, but then again I’ve never been much for eye creams. Not only are they white, heavy and scream of grease and milia consistensy wise, but the ones I’ve tried feel heavy when I put them on, which instantly makes me fear that they’re going to clog my pores and make me break out in dance, or in big old pimples that want to live under my eyes forever.

So yes, let’s just get down to the experience of this product, shall we?

Packaging:
Simple and boring, but then again, not all manufacturers focus their marketing towards a fancy exterior, rather than a well working product. It does actually say “Pure Natural Skin Care” on the tube, so that’s their aim, I guess. 
Grey tube with a little shine to it, and a black little top. I do like the fact that it comes in a tube, for me it’s easier to get the right amount out and it’s more hygienic than a tub or jar.

Texture & Smell:
“It doesn’t really smell that much, but I’m still full of snot and everything not so nice so my nose can’t be trusted. I have however consulted with Mrs. Mother, and she describes it as a very subtle hint of peach/apricot. So basically it doesn’t really smell that much.
The consistency I would describe as white creamy goo, like any other eye cream basically.” <- Straight from the FI.
The texture is still the same, but my nose is up and not running again, so this time I can actually smell it myself, the wonders of the world, dudettes.
She was really good at sniffing out the faint odor of apricot, but there is also an underlying hint of something else, like mushrooms or warm pool water. Not a bad scent, but a little something other than the sweetness if you get my whiff.
It doesn’t smell like death, and the scent doesn’t linger, it disappears eventually, so we’re all good!

The cream itself spreads nicely and you’re left with a slightly dewy finish once the product has absorbed properly.
So it get’s an extra point, just for not being oily overload yuckness. But it kind of stops there.
It didn’t really have any competition in the performance department, considering that the guy he was running against really didn’t do anything noticeable, so why did you fail me, you galactic mice?!
We had a good thing going the first week, it hydrated and I like to think that he helped a little with the bags under my eyes, but this was not a relationship made to last.
When we were halfway through the second week I started noticing little annoying white bumps under my eyes, goddamnit. And we all know the hassle of getting rid of those things. For me it can take up to a month before they show signs of evacuating the premises, and let me tell you, it feels like years for an impatient soul like me.

I’m used to products failing me, so it didn’t come as a shock, but I have to admit that I was a bit bummed out. This eye cream was supposed to be my ride or die bitch, but instead it rode into the sunset and left me to die! Well, at least it felt like that, but I’m over it, I swear!
But this is only my experience with this product, I’m hoping that others have better results with it, because we don’t all have to be unlucky in the search for glowing healthy under eye skin!
I can also report that I have found something else that works like a gem, and I will have a post up and running about it later this week!

Packaging: 6/10

Remember, this is my experience with this product, you might not have the same, and the product can work wonders for some, and be bad for some, Your Mileage May Vary, and we’re all different, you should always check the ingredient list and read about a product before purchasing it, but hey, no pressure!

Have you tried this product?

My updated skincare routine!

Hello darlings!

So, as time changes, so does my routine. There’s always something that has to go to make room for something new, and I love rotating products. Basically, I love when something works so well that it can replace something that didn’t work quite as well!

img_8189.jpg

Look at all those lovelies!

Anyways, my routine for now, step by step:

img_8194
We start off with the KOSE Softy Mo Facial Cleansing Oil Speedy, which once up on a time had a label, but not anymore, so I pimped it.
This really gets the job done. It takes all of my makeup off without feeling harsh or leaving an oily residue, love it!

img_8191
Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser
Ergh, where do I begin with this? I know it’s a HG for many, but for me it’s just ok. It does it’s job and all, but I just can’t stand the smell. I’m really not a fan of the tea tree scent, but I love the job it does.

img_8200
Mizon AHA&BHA Daily Clean Toner

This I really like. It feels good on the skin, smells nice and does what it’s supposed to. I also like the design of the bottle, even more when pimped.

img_8192
Cosrx Racist Galactic Mice Essence
(Whitening Galactomyces)
I really like the name Reddit has given it, and so far I enjoy it in my routine. This was handed to me by Vicky, as she bought it when she thought she needed whitening, but when that wasn’t the case, she kindly donated it to a fellow K-beauty lover, me that is.

img_8201
Skinfood Peach Sake Pore Serum
You guys already know that I’m deeply and madly in love with this serum. There is no other serum for me than this. The smell, the feel of it on my skin, the texture, and it has indeed controlled sebum and smoothened my skin after a while of using it. (I just ordered 3 more just to stock up, that’s how much I love it)!

img_8197
Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule
Honestly, I like this, but I have no idea how much of a job it does. It’s nice and sticky when applied but when it soaks in it isn’t noticeable. Neither are the effects, so far.
I’m 2/3 down in this, and have no idea if it works or not, but I’ll use it up, and look for another, just to have something to compare it to.

img_8193
Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream
I love this, I love this so much! The smell, the texture, the way it feels on my skin when I massage it in, and the fact that it’s actually helping my skin. After having used this for quite some time I noticed a positive change in my scarring, slowly but steadily.

img_8199
Etude House Moistfull Collagen Water Jelly Cream
This just smells so good. That was the first thing I noticed about this jelly when I first got it and started using it. It has this clean fresh scent. I usually use this and the Mizon Gel Cream together sometimes, like actually mix them together in the palm of my hand and slap it on my face, which seems to work for me, but YMMV.
I also love the fact that it is a gel cream, and not a heavy white one (yes, the fear of them white creams are still real).

img_8202
Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream
This.. Well, I ran out of my usual Mizon eye cream and I’m still putting this to the test, so for now it has it’s place in my routine, but I’m not totally sold on it, so I might switch it up and try another one (still waiting on that The Ordinary eye serum, fingers crossed that it’s a miracle worker).

img_8195
Missha All Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ /PA+++
Ah, this guy. It’s the MVP in my routine. My face instantly goes from shiny/dewy to matte, protected and makeup ready! It’s also awesome on those days I’m not wearing makeup and just need my face to not shine as bright as an oily diamond.
Plus for both keeping my skin breakout free, and not leaving a white cast.

So that’s the routine, but I also have my “sometimes buddies”:
img_8198
Mizon Acence Blemish Out Pink Spot,
Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
Laneige Special Care Water Sleeping Mask
Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr Honey Essence Stick

Mizon Acence Blemish Out Pink Spot.
This is the buddy that makes life with spots a little less hard. Slap it on at night and wake up with a face half as angry as the night before.
Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
Well, we’ve all heard of this one, and it does it’s job, keeping them pores at bay.
Laneige Special Care Water Sleeping Mask
Still not a fan of it… Let me rephrase that; I like it, but it’s basically the same as my beloved panda, but 3x as expensive and heavier on the skin.
Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr Honey Essence Stick
My go to when my face needs a little extra attention in the form of hydration, smells like honey heaven and delivers moisture like the little busy bee it is.

So that’s my routine for now, always changing for both better and worse!

Have you tried any of these products?
Let me know!

Peace&Love

First Impression; Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream

Hello darlings!

As always I’m testing and sniffing, and we all know that first impressions are important, from people, food to ofc, K-beauty products!
So I’ve now tested the eye cream a couple of times, and that means that it’s time for a first impression!

So this ended up in my basket after purchasing my second Mizon Snail Eye cream, which isn’t bad, but I feel it does shit-all for me, so why not try something new?
I’ve read nice things about it, it’s cheap and looks like it’s gonna last a while, only thing that’s not so nice about it is the Cosdna list, but hey, I’ve seen worse!

So let’s get on with it!

Texture & Smell:
It doesn’t really smell that much, but I’m still full of snot and everything not so nice so my nose can’t be trusted. I have however consulted with Mrs. Mother, and she describes it as a very subtle hint of peach/apricot. So basically it doesn’t really smell that much.
The consistency I would describe as white creamy goo, like any other eye cream basically.
IMG_8024

You get what I mean right? creamy cream cream!

IMG_8025
I may have squeezed out a little bit to much, but I rubbed it on both palms to get a more realistic picture, so you spread it, and it looks like this. I always fear an oily finish when it comes to white creams, but then again, I’m almost always pleasantly surprised when the product soaks in.
IMG_8026

Nicely soaked in, and no trace of oily ughness!

Surely the cream acts a little bit different when applied to the area it’s made for, but you still end up with a nice finish. BUT you guys, we all love ourselves some galactic mice, and this cream is one of those that you can use all over your face! If you want to of course, I would recommend using essences that contain galactomyces instead, but maybe that’s just me, and my fear of too many irritants in the eye cream?

Anyways!
So far so good, I don’t really feel that this eye cream has that much to live up to if I were to compare it to the one I have been using, but as always, I will have a full review up when I’ve put this one to the test, and my sniff senses are back to full speed again, which can be in 3 days or weeks, who knows?

Have you tried this product?
And did you smear it all over your face, and feel like a fabulous galactic mouse?
That would be awesome, who doesn’t want to feel like that?
I’m going to try it and let you guys know!

Peace & Love

Look at what the mailman brought!

Hello darlings!

I just got a bunch of products that I’ve been pining and longing for at least a couple of days! Then again, we all know that I’m an impatient little hauler, or as Vicky calls me “Queen of Haul”. Gotta love the ring of that name, though!

Anyways! Here are the items that arrived today;
img_7997
Pictured are:
Purebess Galactomyces 80 eye cream
A;T Fox Gyoolpy Tea gel cream
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
Laneige Lip Mask
Missha The Style 4D Mascara

This is one of the products I’ve been sniffing for a while now, there has been positive talk about it, and since the one I’m currently using doesn’t really do anything, what’s the harm in trying another one? So the choice was simple, I’ve heard good things and anything that doesn’t break me out will do, so I’m super excited to try this one!

A;T Fox Gyoolpy Tea gel cream
img_7987
Again I fell for the cuteness! I mean look at it, looooooooook!
I’ve read some decent reviews on it, and I really love a good gel/water cream, I still have this deep running fear for everything creamy, so for now I’ll settle for gel types, I have to admit that I actually forgot that I’d ordered this, so imagine my surprise when I opened the package and discovered this little gem! And now you’re thinking, how do you forget what you’ve ordered? Well, Vicky doesn’t call me the Queen Of Haul for nothing, I’m a royal goddess when it comes to forgetting my purchases. I blame the coffee.
Anyways! I can’t wait to try it, and I will of course be back with a full review on it!

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
Laneige Lip Mask

I BOUGHT IN TO THE HYPE, YOU GUYS!
These have to be the products I hear about the most (talking to you here, Vicky) The sleeping mask was one of the first things I had to poke my nose in, when visiting the other half of this blog, and boy, did it smell great or what?
I truly love sleeping masks, I’ve emptied the panda, waiting for the Cosrx rice one (and I’ve been waiting over a month for it, actually) so this came at the perfect time! This will be tested tonight!
And the lip mask, well, my lips are extremely dry. They chap up real quick no matter the season, and let’s just say that lipstick never hides the problem, it highlights it, so maybe this little berry fairy will work it’s magic for me?

Missha The Style 4D Mascara
img_7992
Lastly we have this one, what is the point of having a clean and blackhead free face, if you don’t have the correct product to highlight the whole window to your soul feature? You can’t have a mediocre mascara if you’re going to bat your long luscious lashes at strangers.
So I’m gonna put this one to the test, hopefully it works better than the old trusted drugstore one I have at the moment, I think a dust buster with charcoal would work better than what I have at the moment, so there probably is little to no doubt about which one that’s going to work better.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready to test them all!
Which one should I try first?

Peace&Love
