[Review] Etude House Eye’s Cream Vanilla Moist

Standard

Hello! have not done a product review in a while so here i am!

I started using eye cream from last year onwards as i feel that the skin under my eyes are getting saggy and dull and fine lines (HORRORS of aging)

When i was in Korea, one of the things i must buy is eye cream. im currently using those from the tube so wanted to try another form.

Moisturizing, brightening, anti-wrinkle – just what i need!!

this is more like a eye stick and balm as it come in a white solid form and you have to turn the tube once it finishes.

i think this says you can apply on top, at the sides and under your eyes.

My thoughts:

i really like that the skin ard my eyes feel so cooling when i apply this.
also, the balm is not greasy at all and i feel very happy to apply more than 1 layer when i use it. it doesnt have any scent in my opinion which is good.
i usually apply 2-3 layers depending on the weather and when i touch my skin its in the right state, soft and moist (but yet not overly moist feeling)

i also bring it with me when i travel as it is really compact to carry around and no worries of spillage in the bag.

i have not used this for long term but i do find that its a good pdt to buy.

Korea Trip Stash!

Standard

An Yeong Haseyo!

Korea is really the land of skincare and my skincare heaven! there’s so many variety and product range is soooo extensive that by day 1 shopping i feel that all these products are just gimmicks and walking down myeong-dong is like a competition to see which skincare brand has the best marketing to draw in customers… but still i am a good tourist and i bought loads!

and all those who serve me in shops are PRC.. by default i am also a PRC to the sales assistants so i always have to correct them.

want to see what i bought from my korea winter trip? these includes things for my friends so not all is mine k

i have took photos according to brands and here’s where 90% of my shopping goes to

LANEIGE

I try to hit 30,000 won per store so that i can claim VAT refund but for etude huose and Nature republic i didnt hit.

HOLIKA HOLIKA
i also bought alot of lipsticks mini ones for friends but i gave away before the photo 😦

I wish i can buy more but i shall not go too far. i think this should be able to last me for a good year or 2. by then new pdts will be on the market so i will buy then…

i also bought a zara bottom and a fluffy sweater and food stuff for colleauges and family.

i didnt bring my credit card so no aftershock next month. think i spend SGD1,000 ++?

[Review] ETUDE HOUSE I Need You, Pearl Extract Mask Sheet

Standard

my friend gave us some Etude House mask sheet after coming back from korea. I love receiving masks!!

this is my first Etude House mask sheet.


im glad it does not contain parabens, and contains hydrolysed collegen.


there’s nothing special about the mask sheet but it fits perfectly on my face. 🙂

i removed it after 30 min and pat the rest of the essence into my skin.
and i stayed up for another hour before gg to bed. by then, my face is already sticky and greasy but i still went to bed anyway…

the next day my face is still layered with that sticky greasy film, and i think it clogged my pores. cos my existing pimples became worse.

here’s a photo with my camera ‘smooth skin’ effect.

I think its a decent mask and wouldnt mind buying again if its cheap!
