Polishes -Color Club -We'll Never Be Royals

foto

I have a lot of nail polish (300+ at my last count) and about a dozen of them are colour shifting, but this is the best, most beautiful, most impressive colour shifter of the lot, and has become one of my favourite polishes ever. It's just that good.

The colours in this shift from purple to a warm wine shade to a stunningly beautiful red, and there are occasional flashes of orangey red in certain light. I have been fascinated watching the colour shifts and seeing what will show next. It's very impressive and the colour shifts are clear and all are beautiful. I love the array of colours in this! I normally change my polish after four day or so because I get bored, but I don't get bored with this one.

Smooth formula, applies like a dream, perfect coverage in two coats. Long-wearing with a good top coat.

I had to get myself a backup of this one. I love it just that much.

Toners -TonyMoly -Wonder Rice Smoothing Toner

I have tried many products that claim to reduce pores with minimal to none results but this the only one that works as promised on my skin. For reference, I have combo acne-prone skin with enlarged pores and a few dry patches here and there and this does a great job at evening things out and making my skin look smoother and healthier. I don't feel this should work on extra dry skin types but if you have a combo skin like me, I would def recommend this. Not only this, a whopping 500ml pack which last for several months costs only $12 which is a great value for your money. Definitely check this out..

Masks -The Body Shop -Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

To me this is more of a gentle exfoliate than a mask. I like the scent thought, kinda herby with a lil bit of rice smell (since it have rice in it :D). I use this mask once every 2-3 weeks, when I feel like my skin is looking dull or if I see white head. My skin does not brighten up immediately but it does look and feel cleaner. It can sting a little bit once you apply, so people with sensitive skin need to test before you purchase.

Ah and I often multi mask this in the cheek and chin area, white using TBS Green tea and charcoal mask for the T-zone.

Lip Treatments -Tarte -Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue

on 7/6/2018 4:27:00 AM

I have this in Nude, beside the smooth creamy feeling and cooling effect it has once applied onto my lip, I do not like this product at all. It doesn't rescue my lip (and that what it's supposed to to). Eventhough the packaging is very cute, it's feel quite cheap. My tube seem loose (wonder if it was just me and my defect product).

Overall? Would not repurchase.

Masks -Kiehl's -Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque

I really love this product. I have a dry and sensitive skin and the amount of clays in this product is sufficient for my skin. Moreover, it seemed like my skin looks brighter after using it.

Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand -Daylong Actinica - Spirig Pharma

I am very disappointed in this product. This was a sunscreen I wanted to try after doing a lot of research. The sun filter ingredients look terrific and all the reviews I read indicated that this product is excellent for sun protection. I am looking for a sunscreen that has both Tinosorb S and M. I am a user of tretinoin and acids so my skin is a bit dry and needs moisture. So products that are slightly heavier normally work fine.

I started using this product only on the weekends and noticed that the product felt quite greasy and gave me small pimples after a couple of days. As another user mentioned, you must tie your hair up or else it’ll be completely oiled up. I didn’t want to give up so tried several times. On my last try, I went on vacation for a week and used Daylong Actinica on my face every day and used Avene spf40 spray on my arms. I made sure to reapply twice each day (3 times total each day). I wasn’t in the sun that much and wore a hat and sunglasses. After 7 days, I now have 7 pimples on my face and my face is much darker than my arms. My face was lighter than my arms previously.

I will not be using this on my face anymore but will use it up on my arms and legs. (Can’t waste sunblock). It is too bad I bought 2 x 80g. My previous HG sunblock was Missha waterproof sun milk but the formula has changed and discontinued. My search continues. If you have a sunscreen suggestion, I’d be happy to try it out.

Cleansers -Simple -Cleansing Micellar Water

on 7/6/2018 3:13:00 AM

I honestly feel like plain old water would do the exact same thing. When I use this, a lot of makeup comes off on the cotton pad, but the same thing would happen with water on that cotton pad. I do not use waterproof eye makeup, but this micellar water barely removes my eye makeup. The whole point in using makeup remover is so that I don't have to rub my eyes/skin, and I feel that with this, I have to rub my eyes vigorously in order for it to remove anything (and not well).

Hair -Shea Moisture - Coconut and hibiscus co-wash conditioning cleanse

foto

I have type 2b-c thick, porous, hair. This made my hair feel heavy, and gross. I just felt like there was a greasy film on my hair. It's gross. I had to rewash it. It might work well for other hair types, but definitely not for me.

A lovely full coverage concealer! I prefer this for spot concealing instead of under the eyes.

Cleansers -Kose -Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil

One day after running out of my Fancl cleansing oil, I try heading to the store to stock up right when the mother of all storms hit. All the trains stopped and I couldn`t even get into the station, so instead I went to the local Matsumoto Kyoshi drugstore to pick it up there. Unfortunately, it was all sold out, my DHC as well, so instead I picked the Softymo up instead. At 579 JPY (less than 6 bucks), I wasn`t sure what to expect, but I am really happy with it. In the bottle it looks like it would be watery and thin in texture, but actually it is not. It really removes mascara and foundation quickly and well, and it doesn`t contain any fragrance, which I like. It hasn`t broken me out and I am happy with it. It works so well, that I doubt I would spend more money in the future on the more expensive DHC and Fancl cleansing oils.
