HadaLabo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion
As I finished my current toner, it is time to go back to my old favorite to prep my skin. I love how it makes my face hydrated especially when I mask, I feel like it allows me to wear the mask a little longer
Toner is one of the step I can't miss in my routine, so having a backup is always a bonus
I bought this refill on Amazon for about $10.
REVIEW: Heimish All Clean Balm
So, I made myself finish 2 entire tubs of Banila Co. Clean It Zero before I let myself purchase this much raved about cleansing balm. And....I don't think it lived up to the hype.
Claims: This sherbet style cleansing balm will dissolve even the heaviest makeup, while leaving skin hydrated. This oil-based Cleanser contains an impressive list of natural botanical ingredients suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
Notable Ingredients: Shea butter, donkey milk, coconut & other botanical extracts, the only listed acnegenic ingredient is ethychexl palmitate
Price: $15 on Amazon
My thoughts: My pros - First off the packaging is beautiful, I like the texture (not too greasy), this definitely doesn't leave as bad of a film on my contacts as the banila co Cleanser does, and I don't think it's caused any breakouts. My cons - ew I hate the smell of this ( it smells like dirt), this doesn't emulsify quite as well as the banila co, and most importantly this does not remove my eye makeup as effectively. I have to go in with micellar water or a makeup wipe both before this oil cleanse and after to make sure all of my makeup is actually removed. Like I said I do like that it doesn't ruin my contacts and doesn't cause breakouts so It's really not too bad and I will finish up the container. I'm just not as impressed as I thought I would be.
What are your favorite oil based cleansers?! Help a girl out!
The theme for Day 21 of #MaskMadness was Vegetables .
I decided to try out the Tony Moly I'm Real Broccoli (Vitality) Sheet Mask
Claims: Provides vitalizing energy to tired skin. Formulated with antioxidant rich broccoli extracts that protect skin from various environmental stressors. Fast absorbing serum provides intense hydration while conditioning skin to revitalize complexion and boost elasticity.
Notable Ingredients: No parabens, talc or alcohol. Broccoli, Cabbage, Olive, and Anise extracts.
My Thoughts: This mask was a bit too stiff and papery for my liking. If you hate tediously unfolding thin masks you might like this though! There was a decent amount of essence but because of the material it didn't want to stick down around my chin properly. I was definitely not wowed by the results of this mask but it was ok. The essence absorbed nicely and there was no irritation. My skin did feel kind of firm and plump so maybe it did do something in terms of boosting elasticity, but it was not overly moisturizing or brightening. This is my first Tony Moly I'm real Mask so I feel like I'll have a stronger opinion once I get a chance to test out some of the other flavors in this line.
Price: you can find this individually in store at Ulta or @peachandlily for $3. I got this in a 11 style variety pack on Amazon for $11 though what a steal.

Review from Owner :
Pertama beli ini deg2an juga soalnya beberapa review bilang ini cocok banget untuk jenis kulit dry-normal(mukaku lebih ke oily berjerawat). Tp stelah coba, ehhh ternyata cocok! Dan hasilnya juga lebih ke natural ya(ga matte dan ga oily). Cuma ada 1 shade, stelah aplikasi ke muka day tint ini nyesuain shade muka kita :)
Yang owner suka banget dr day tint ini, hasilnya yg naturaaaaal banget. Bkin muka halus lembut tp g kliatan pake make-up(namanya jg day-tint). Cocok banget untuk pemakaian sehari2 ditambah udah ada SPF15 nya juga Coverage nya medium ya.. jd buat yg mau kemerahan/bintik di kulit bener2 mulus ketutup ya harus pakai concealer lg

What else you need to know:
Dr. Jart presents the Ceramidin Collection, a ceramide-based moisturizing range. Ceramides are essential lipids found in the surface layer of the skin that help maintain the integrity of the skin and retain moisture. Due to aging, natural ceramide concentrations in the skin decrease over time, resulting in dry, irritated, and sensitive skin. The collection not only relieves these symptoms, but enhances and restores the skin’s inherent ability.
This @canmaketokyo face powder that I've been using applies a little bit heavy, but it's perfect once I 'melt' it with my setting spray - that's my favorite trick to a perfect, satin matte finish. Also, doesn't this packaging suit the whole #beautyandthebeast thing?
TomfoolTuesday: Routine • PM + attempt of the "7 Skin Method"
Double Cleanse: #TheFaceShop Rice Water Bright - Cleansing Light Oil --> #Clinique rinse-off foaming cleanser. So, this cleanser has been on-and-off irritating my face. I'm making an assumption here, but it probably is a basic (pH) cleanser. It burns/stings the same way another cleanser I stopped using last year b/c I found out it contained a strong base (KOH, I believe) as a major ingredient. Granted I don't have a pH kit handy, I can't check, but I am not compromising my face for a cleanser, so it's time for a timeout!
Toner: #SonandPark Beauty Water
Active: Tretinoin Cream, USP 0.025%. Q: Where's my #Curology? A: I'm out and the new one is on the way !
Before I delve into the rest of my routine tonight, I must talk about the "7 Skin Method", which has been popping up everywhere! It seemed like such an awesome idea to apply 7 layers of essence toners (one after another), to keep one's skin hydrated and well-balanced w/o the residual greasy feel one may get from layering on oil-based moisturizers. My face desperately needs a restoration to normalcy, so what better way is there for me than to try this one~?
Toner/Moisturizer: #NamerakaHonpo - Soy Milk Isofurabon Toner (2 layers) --> #HadaLabo Rhoto Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Lotion (2 layers).
Essence: #Corsx Advanced 96 Mucin Power Essence (3 layers). At this point, my face feels like a 's ! No but really, it's so plump and bouncy, I can't, even now, stop tapping my face ㅎㅎ
My last step to seal the deal is a Sleep Pack: #ClairesKorea#Guerrison 9-complex Cream. I decided to switch this to my night routine b/c my face seemed a bit oily during the day. Since it is greasier, it may seem counterintuitive, but don't worry b/c this is going on after the "7 Skin Method"!
