Viciada em Séruns!

Quem já leu algum dos meus posts sabe que tenho a pele louca, psicótica e oleosa e por causa disso tenho medo de tudo que promete hidratar porque se eu não hidratar corretamente a minha pele começa a tentar suicídio, literalmente. Primeiro fico com a pele tão oleosa que parece que passei frango frito na cara toda, daí meus buracos poros começam a entupir e se transformar em umas bolotas que vão ficar doendo por semanas e não liberam nada nem que eu esprema com um alicate e ameace machucar alguém da família. Por causa disso eu fujo de tudo que diz que vai me hidratar e blablabla. Mas a idade vai chegando e gravidade vai fazendo efeito então comecei a pensar qual seria a melhor solução. Comecei a usar um creme de colágeno da Shiseido que por ser em […]

Manicure!

Antes de comentar esse post não preciso nem comentar que eu adoro estar com as unhas feitas todos os dias, sem esmalte sinto que estou pelada. Sempre fui assim desde os meus 11 anos quando minha mãe me autorizou a usar esmaltes. Mas ela havia me alertado e como é de praxe não dei atenção. O alerta era sobre as cutículas! Ela sempre dizia para não tirar as cutículas pois uma vez que você começasse seria escrava do alicate! hahahahah E pra variar ela estava certa. Anos depois aqui estou eu fadada a ser escrava do maldito do alicate. No Brasil era fácil porque em cada esquina tinha um salão de beleza e eu fazia as unhas sempre que sentia necessidade, mas aqui no Japão salões de manicure não são tão comuns assim e são considerados quase como um tratamento […]

Skin, please come down! By Juanita

Skin, please come down!

Soooo, summer time… Some people love it, right? Sun, beaches, holidays, barbecue and etc. Some people wait the whole year for it. Well I do it too. I wait suffering in anticipation of my hair getting dry, my stomach not accepting food and my skin breaking out like crazy! Yeah, I’m not a summer person, I like the whole vibe but my body just don’t let me enjoy it. So every year is the same, all the work to getting my skin better during the other seasons risking to be lost because of the heat and humid during hot months. My skin is oily/combination but in the summer just seems that I instead of washing my face I’m using some kitchen oil all over! But this year I said NO! I’m tired of all this abuse! OK, too much? I […]

Korean Haul By Juanita

Did I made my love for Korean products already clear? This time I’ve decided to invest in a few products to add into my daily routine. 1 – From I’ts Skin Collagen serum and collagen eye cream. I’ve tried in the past a few samples of this brand and since I’m aging super fast why not to add definitely a serum and a eye cream. I used to use just a sample size tube here and there whenever I received one. Must say that the Bulgari’s serum Precieux and the Clinique’s Turnaround are really good but I don’t know why everything seems to lost effect after a couple of weeks.   2 – Baviphat AC sleeping mask for troubled skin. This is the limited mini size edition. So instead of the foil sample or small tube they made even the […]

Changing skin texture By Juanita

I’ve never liked to spend time trying all the samples you receive when buying Japanese and Korean skincare products because let’s faced: It is just way too much! And having a crazy skin I’m always afraid to away up the monster and get a huge breakout. But my opinion is changing since I discovered really good products after giving the samples a chance to make their jobs: Wow us! The last sample I tried was the TonyMoly Floria Activing Peeling Gel and I went from the shower to a online shop to get a full size of it. It clams: “Floria Flower Active Peeling Gel promotes youthfully radiant skin & blooming baby-face made by time reversing secrete potion of Floria. This soft textured gommage type peeling / exfoliating gel provides flower energy vitality to tired skin, clearing pores and complexion.” After […]

Primer Freak Part II By Juanita

Those are the primers I’ve bought recently.     On top is the Innisfree one and below the Baviphat. The Innisfree is pretty matte, dries in seconds and smells like plant (!) and the Baviphat is more natural, take about one minute to dry and smells like baby. The tricky part is that the Innisfree one won’t work for normal to dry skin because look at my hand! I didn’t moisturized before applying and after a couple of minutes this is the result! It worked well for me because this powder absorbed the sebum, especially at my nose and big forehead. I don’t know how it works otherwise… Both have the incredible power of leaving my skin without shine for up to 8 hours even after exercising. It is amazing that you can sweat without start to glow like the […]
