My skin-fix

Hello darlings!
Spring is here, and where I’m from that usually means social gatherings and family parties, which is all fun and games until you get so eager to try ERRYTHING you’ve hauled all at once, because you’re convinced your skin has superpowers and can handle it all, AT ONCE.
So right now my skin is acting up like a toddler turning two, and it ain’t pretty you guys!
Best part? Family gathering this Saturday, yay!

So obviously I would never recommend anyone ever,  to go apeshit on their skin introducing more than one product at a time, but what I do with mine, well, let’s just all take a minute and learn from my mistakes, mmmmkay?
So when I end up like this, I need to have a go to, a miracle fix to get that dewy glow just in time to look fabulous when interacting with other people. This is where I find the whole “less is more” principle to help heaps!
I basically just go back to scratch, call on the help from the snail gods, and sneak in a couple of sheet masks, this works wonders, and my skin has once again restored faith in me. At least for now.

Of course, getting healthy skin is all about patience, but as you might have picked up by now, that is a trait I’m not blessed with, but what I lack in that field, I make up for with charm and an exemplary sense of humor! Or so I’d like to think.

Anyway!
Here’s my “bulletproof back to basics saves me every time” routine

The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Light Oil (PM Routine)
This really gets the job done, I’m a sucker for 7 layers of makeup, so when the day comes to an end and all I want to do is to get it of as quickly as possible, this is my best friend, but, this f*cker stings more than a pms infused bee if you’re lucky enough to get some in your eye.

Cosrx Good Morning Low PH Gel Cleanser
I hate how he smells, but loves the way he works his magic. Yes, my cleanser is a “he”, no worries! As I’ve complained about before, the scent on this one is not for me, what so ever, but the effect of the tea tree I just love, so for those days I have a cold we get along very well, but other than that we just barely get along.

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner
This, I’m not that sure about, it does it’s job and I like the packaging, but I have been experimenting with another toner, that might just kick this one out of the routine, but for now, we’re the bestest of friends!

Skinfood Peach Pore Sake Serum (Reviewed)
I LOVE THIS! There is a slight possibility that I might just be addicted to this fruity little guy, it leaves your skin with a semi matte finish, amazing smell, and your pores look smaller, I would like to believe that this is a gift from the peach gods, created to solve all my problems while smelling amazing, but maybe I’m just imagining the effects? I will get back to you with this when I have investigated more.

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Water Jelly Cream (Vicky’s Review)
My worst fear when first starting with Korean skincare was heavy pore clogging creams, so after googling, redditing and dating CosDna this was the one I ended up with, I love the fresh feeling, the scent and how it just absorbs right into the skin, so this might be in my routine for evah evah, she said, right before she discovered a moisturizer from paradise.

Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream
My first eye cream, and I’m still sticking to it, it’s snaily and doesn’t break me out, that makes me a happy kitty!

Missha All Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk
I just love the finish on this badboy, it’s a perfect primer, doesn’t leave a white cast, smells good, and doesn’t break me out, all the things I want in a perfect sunscreen! 
sub-fu

Simple as that!
For me this does wonders, these are the products that I know my skin loves and doesn’t reject at all, so when all else fails, this is my go to!
In my everyday routine there are a few other lovelies, but when it comes to a skin detox so to speak, these are the ones I j’adore!
So that’s it from me today, I would love to hear if you have a “Zombie apocalypse” routine you use when all else fails!

Peace&Love

The packages that arrived yesterday…

Hey guys!

As promised, I’m back today with an unboxing post. If you don’t already know, four packages arrived from Korea yesterday and I’m so excited because I’ve been waiting for these products since way before Easter! I’m still missing one package, but I have a good feeling that it will turn up tomorrow. As always I will update you all when that happens. Until then; let’s get to it!

So here are the packages! Can you tell what’s inside?   ↓

As usual, I also recieved some samples which is awesome because I looove samples!   ↓

20170420_041209

To me, all of these products are new and I can’t wait to put them to the test! I’ve heard great things about them all. I just hope they live up to my expectations. As usual, first impressions and reviews will be posted, but keep in mind that I do have several products to try at the moment and I can’t try them all at once. But fear not. I do have a system and a plan!

So what do you think? Have you tried any of these?   🙂

My night time skin care routine!

 

Hey guys! 🙂
This post will be on my current night time skin care routine. Keep in mind that I’m always buying and trying new products, so my skin care regimen WILL evolve with time. This is just personally what works for me. I do like some of the products better than others. In other words; I’m still tweeking my night time routine, as I’m not completely happy with it and I know I can do better 😀

 

So let’s get to it!

Usually my first step will be cleansing my face with the COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser, as I don’t wear make up every day. IF I’m wearing make up I start with TheFaceShop’s Rice Water Bright Cleansing Oil, to be sure to melt all the make up and gunk off my face before going in with the gel cleanser  ↓

Then it’s time for a toner. I use the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner  ↓

20170416_192321

 

After this I apply my Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum  ↓

20170416_192448

 

Then I slap on my COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence  ↓

The next step is my Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule  ↓

Next up would be a moisturizer. At the moment I’m using the Earth’s Recipe Moisture Bound Cream (which I did a first impression on)  ↓

As I’m moving towards the end of my night time routine, I apply my Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream  ↓

20170416_192722

 

And last but not least; I slap on a sleeping pack. The one I use is the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. I don’t use it every night, probably twice a week ↓

20170416_192659

And that, my friends, is my current night time skin care routine! Some of these products have been in my routine longer than others, so I’m still kind of in the middle of testing the “newcomers” out, and finding out what i like – or don’t like about them. I will be back with reviews on all of the products listed in this night time routine, one by one! Also, as mentioned before, I’m waiting for more newcomers to drop into my letter box, HO-HO-HO! Which means more products being put to the test, more reviews and possibly more tweeking 😀

My daily skin care routine 🐱

So, we meet again!
Hello darlings, dudelings and everyone inbetween!

This post is in no shape or form sponsored. These are my words and honest opinions.

FullSizeRender
I earlier today Instagrammed that I would be posting my skin care routine, so here it is, keep in mind, I’m still tweaking, adding, switching, loving and hating the products, but for now, these are my go-to’s. Just wait until my haul hits the mail, then the routine will look a whole lot different, and pinker and cuter and everything nice. Because we all know I can’t control myself when it comes to cute.
In this post I just list the things I use daily, so it will not have my adored sheet masks or my exfoliators in this one because well, that’s for another day!

So for now, this is what it looks like;

FullSizeRender_1

I start off with;
The Face Shop rice water bright cleansing oil; so far I have nothing bad to say about it, it does it’s job, takes the makeup off, spreads evenly, but it does sting the eyes if you’re clever enough to accidentally get some of it in there. I continue with the Holy Mother of Gel Cleansers:
Cosrx’s Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser; I don’t want to insult this cult product in any way, but I don’t really see the hype, I mean, it cleanses well, takes all the dirt that the oily deliciousness didn’t, but I really can’t stand the scent or the tight face feeling, so I will probably switch this one out as soon as one of the three others I’ve ordered arrive.

FullSizeRender_2

After cleansing comes toner!

Etude House’s Wonder Pore Freshner; Does the job for me, I like it, and don’t really know what more there is to say, love the packaging, it really has that fresh and simple look, love it!

Next I like to switch it up all depending on if it’s the AM or PM routine, usually I incorporate Cosrx’s BHA Blackhead Power Liquid in the AM routine, and Cosrx’s AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid in the PM, I don’t use these everyday, but when I do, that is how it goes down. For those easier days (read, too lazy to do a full on super routine) I just slap on my highly praised Skinfood Peach Sake Serum and do a little happy dance before moving on to the next step. 🙂
FullSizeRender_3

I am a huge fan of the snail. Snailpower all the way! Therefore my choice of eye cream falls on the Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream: spreads nicely, no offensive scent, and soaks rather quickly into the skin, so all is well!
Then comes the moisturizer, which I just hands down adore! The idea of  heavy, thick creams still scare me, you know, mental scars from the western product days when a thick cream would break you out and make your face look like a zombiecheesepizza that just had to run it’s course..
So when I first got started I ordered a gel cream, and it does it’s job, spreads evenly, and my face feels nice and babybooty-like when it has absorbed. I am of course talking about the Moistfull Collagen Water Jelly Cream from Etude House, j’adore!

At last comes the sun screen, or sleeping pack, depending on what your next step is. You going to bed? Slap on some panda! You going to meet a lovely in the park for a picnic? Gurl, get your UV-protection on!
My protector is Missha’s All Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk. Not only does it spread evenly, soak up fast and leave a matte and gorgeous canvas to smear your makeup on, but the lid is pink! The packaging on this bad girl is just so cute, sleek, minimalistic and nice. You can tell that I adore it. I have this thing for products that work and are easy on the eyes!

So there you have it!
In-between here I also variate with sheet masks, exfoliators and this one ampoule that I’ve tried three times, but has broken me out like a motherducker, but we’ll save that for another post!

If you have any HolyMoly products that we should try out, let us know!
