I freaking love this stuff. Like SO much. It's so warm and comforting... Like a big bowl of mac & cheese... Or a plate of hot hash browns that are crispy and have been browned to perfection. .
But in all seriousness, I like to keep this in my shower because it's a HOT CLEANSING GEL. Meaning, it warms up on contact, and is the most perfect treat for after a long stressful day. It's energizing, and warming and comfortable and I will probably repurchase this forever and ever and ever. In all honesty though, I have to note- I don't think it would work that great alone, as a first cleanser (which is how @imagebeautystore told me to use it), so I personally like to use this after my oil cleanser and before my second (foam) cleanser... Just as an extra little treat, to give myself that extra cleanse, if I feel like it. I looooovveee the way it smells- like fresh grapefruit juice!! It's also super gentle, low PH, and free of synthetic perfumes, parabens, animal derived materials, ethanol, colorants, mineral oil and petroleum based surfactants! I mean... What more can you really ask for?
Amazon Japan ships internationally! Yay! Not all items are available for intl shipping though, and my items of choice fall into this category. In this case, a forwading service, like Buyee, came to my rescue! You don't need to understand Japanese to use their service. Service fee is very reasonable. Many shipping options are offered. You can shop from many leading Japanese online shops, not only Amazon JP! First, you need to check if your country is among the eligible shipping destinations http://buyee.jp/help/yahoo/guide/countries . If so, then just register and follow the instructions. Good luck! #MyBuyee#japaneseskincare#asianskincare#Jbeauty#Buyee
omg time flies! Thanks for hosting the #junemaskchallenge@beautimel@miirushop and @skincarechronicles! for day 29 it's all about healing and soothing, perfect timing since I have this massive cystic bump turned creamy zit on my chin
Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask~ soothes redness, makes my skin eventoned and brighter and deeply cleansed
COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask~ light, refreshing, absorbs well and heals blemishes making my skin plump and brighter too
Skinoren gel Azelaic Acid and Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Night Gelly to treat
the irony is, ever since I began using The Ordinary's Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% my skin is now in the BEST state it's ever in~ insignificant pores, smooth AF and overall brighter and very even toned
HOWEVER I am to blame my diet when it comes to emerging explosive painful bumps and zits~ happens to me whenever I go to Singapore and indulge in delicious Hawker food~ barbecue wings/pork, satay and all the dimsum and MEE that I can shove inside my mouth~ SWEE CHOON I'M LOOKIN AT YA but now the culprit is BONCHON's korean chicken and fries which is the only different thing I have incorporated in my skincare routine last week~ SUXXX Now I have to pay for my disgusting little decadence, sorry chin!
Was lucky enough to be selected to participate in @cupidrop.official 4th generation of Beautiful Pioneers, testing out the @brtckorea Jasmine Waterful Sleeping Pack
Description: an overnight mask that hydrates & brightens your skin while you sleep. It contains Jasmine water and lavender extract that act as aromatherapy so you can get the best sleep of your life. Meant to be used as the last step in your routine, apply a generous amount all over the face when your skin is lacking moisture & needs a treatment to bring back its vitality.
Notable Ingredients: please note this does contain silicons and fragrance. It's also jam packed with botanical extracts; Jasmine, cornflower, chamomile, lavender, clary, lilac, gardenia, and violet in addition to niacinamide & sodium hyaluronate.
Price: retails for $28 at cupidrop
My Thoughts: the smell straight out of the tub is veryyy Jasmine-y. I thought it might be too overwhelming since I'm not a floral person, but once applied to the face it actually wasn't bothersome. I'm definitely a fan of gel/creams. This soaks in nicely, no tackiness, with a slightly velvety finish. This is light yet hydrating so I think it would be best for oily/combination skin. Might not pack the punch you're looking for if you have extremely dry skin though. Sometimes products with silicones make me nervous but this didn't seem to cause any breakouts. Overall I didn't see any crazy dramatic moisturizing or brightening effects, but I'm still satisfied with the performance. I think this is a great sleeping pack for summer use considering it's on the lighter/ more refreshing side.
I received this product complimentary, but all opinions are my own! #cupidrop#brtc#beautifulpioneer
Review Time// Nuca's Ultra Poreless Clay Pack
•***head to the blog to see more details on this mask***
•Key Ingredients: Bentonite, Walnut Powder, Peach, Lime, Grape, Fig, & Lemon Extract, and Coconut Oil.
•Results/Opinion: Although this mask dried to a whitish color (as seen in the picture above), the initial color was a light pink/purple with black specks of walnut shells. Scent wise, the mask had an enjoyable rosy aroma. After letting this sit on my face for 10 minutes, I found that it was difficult to remove because there were so many exfoliating fragments. Because my skin is sensitive, I took extra precaution when washing off the mask. While my skin was noticeably tighter and less oily after use, my left cheek remained red for a few hours due to the abrasion. Unfortunately, this product was just too harsh for my face, and would be better suited for those with more tolerant skin. •

It's a bee kinda week
My face has been angry lately and all the bee/honey products help with the soothing. No matter how much I love and pamper my skin, it's not enough it's worse when a breakout is due to the environment/lifestyle. When it's due to a product at least you can just cut it out of your routine
