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 […]

My May Loot Crate! By Denise

I got my Loot Crate in the mail! Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service for anyone who likes to game, to collect nifty products and to fill their rooms with toys from different games and shows! I joined the Canadian pilot program and so far it has been a fun ride! The box does not take long to get to me at all. Maximum 2 weeks as compared to 3-4 weeks for beauty boxes. Well let’s get on with the box, shall we? Like many boxes, it comes with a product card and a little summary of this month’s theme. I also got a membership card with this box. Something that is pretty unique! The first items were these crazy emotions stickers and a DIY Ironman paper figurine puzzle for me to put together. I will get right to […]

Question: Why do you use so many products at once? By Juanita

Question: Why do you use so many products at once? People ask me that all the time. Yes I do use a lot at once, like once once. One on top of another! But it’s on purpose I swear! And you should try too! The thing is that here in Japan/Asia the way people do the skin care routine is different, like everywhere else, all places has their particularity. A technique called layering is very common and consists in use sometimes 5 or more steps and apply them with massages. I found this link that explain how and why do it. Check it out! http://www.skinandtonics.com/asian-skin-care-guide/#routine And an example featuring the Japanese beloved brand: HadaLabo http://www.hadalabo.com.my/en/regime-care.html   This routine doesn’t discriminate. hahahahaa Sensitive, acne-prone and oily skins can enjoy the many benefits of it.

The Search For The Perfect Cleanser! By Juanita

The search for the perfect cleanser! Well, since my interest  for cosmetics started I’ve been looking for the perfect cleanser. As I have oily skin if I leave any trace of make up in my face I’ll for sure wake up with pimples all over! So I tried a couple until now and there it goes my two favorite ones. If they were combined into one product I wouldn’t ask for anything else in this life. OK,  just a miracle primer and a foundation that could last like 20 hours… then I would be satisfied. First one is the Chifure cleansing liquid, a Japanese brand. Even with everybody saying that make up remover is better in oil I don’t like, I’m too lazy to spend time trying to rinse well and always ended up worrying about  my face being oily after. Desde […]
