It's skin carrot brightening mask - review

Hello, my dear readers! o((*^▽^*))o

I know, that some of you might be full enough of my E H's reviews. But, their commercial strength is so huge, I have to buy it like all the time! Good commercial => many buyers! It's Skin might not be so popular, but they tried to get customers with good looking oppas on the products. Nobody can resist handsome oppa on the product smiling on you! (✿ ♥‿♥)



Explanation? I've got another mask as a gift for entering It's Skin shop, with a handsome man in the top picture. But that's not everything. You could get a fan with a handsome man, or cotton pads with a handsome man. Actually, they have events like that almost every day. But some people couldn't catch the right moment. I am like a satellite and I scanning all the shops for various events. Well, you also need a good place. Best stop for you is Dongdaemun, there are many foreigners.


This mask had a very good price, actually 50% discount. 10 masks for ₩5,000! So, one mask was for ₩ 500.

NOTE: ₩ 500 is about 0,45 US dollar. Yes, less than a half dollar for a mask.

I chose carrot mask, for brightening effect~



How does it look like?

I like the design a lot, it's simple and cute. With a realistic drawing. Reminds me grandma's recipe or vintage packing. Yes, vintage Victorian or American 50ties?

How to use?

Classically, open a mask and put on a clean face and let it absorb for about 15-20 minutes. And then gently remove the mask.



Does it really work?

They are clearly promising brightening effect, but I can't see any difference, what is interesting. I don't want to make this mask look bad, but I took also a photo, before, during and after. You can see, that it didn't give me any brightening/whitening effect... 



BUT:

-my skin feels hydrated well.
- can feel the glowing effect. 
-skin feels fresh.
-no smell of carrot? Is it really carrot mask?
(note: sun started shinning in the "after photo" but there was glowing effect for sure)

Summary:



Design of the product: 3/5 I like it! But, you might notice the strange shape of mask, which is not covering much of my face.


Promised effect: 3/5 I would name it glowing effect refreshing mask. 



Price: 5/5 Around half US dollar is a great price!

Would you buy again? 2/5 more likely not. I will try bamboo and snail mask from it's skin, next time.


Thank you for reading. Have you tried this mask? What was your result?

Do you really need ETUDE Sweet Drinking Bottle? Event information and Review

Hello my dear readers!

Do you wanna be sweet today? This review is not so traditional, but very FRESH~~~ Because now is still ONGOING event in Etude House official website! But, do you really need it? Let's read pros and cons first, then you can decide!


So what's going on?
If you buy from the official website for over 50 US dollars, you can get this sweet drinking bottle! BUT I hate to say this, but you need to add it to your shopping card by yourself. Their system is super tricky. I didn't get Etude pen last time, because after refreshing website I accidentally clicked somewhere and I was moved to paypal and I couldn't come back to check my card, if it's there or not, card was empty. So be extra careful!


One more note, you can get free shipping, maybe even two times per month, but it's a risk to wait. During August, I grabbed free shipping for orders over 50 dollars~ so I paid only at customs office 15 dollars.


For lucky people in Japan!


A similar event was also in Japan, you could buy only any cushion and you could get Sweet drinking bottle! 




I cut the whole picture, it was much longer before! Mostly it was about types Any Cushions. I thought it's not necessary, I hope you don't mind.

This event is finished. But maybe it might appear again. ^^




How does it look like?



Packing is super cute, pink box with stripes by it's side walls. It's not as heavy as I expected.

One box contains:
-lid
-bottle, but cup is more suitable
-straw (don't worry, not one time use)






About:

Pros

Luckily, title is not printed out, but put inside of free empty space among walls.

Looks super cute!

Cons


It already has some scratches and I didn't use it yet.It's made mostly of plastics. Materials: AS, PS, PP and Rubber.


Smells very bad (like plastic) after opening. Clean before using.


It's not completely closed, so you can't really travel with it (in the bag).



You shouldn't let lid on the cup for a too long time after drinking because molds love closed spaces with water remains.

You can clean it only with a SOFT sponge.


COLD drinks only.

Can't use dishwasher, microwave, freezer, boiling water, and a stove.
Why? Plastic materials are leaving dangerous remains during warming process. And it's not even safe to drink from the plastic bottle every day, too.

Size:

Size with lid: 16,2 cm
Size without lid: 15,8 cm

Straw size: 21 cm
Capacity: 590 ml

Summary:


Design: 5/5 super sweet

Promised effect: 2/5 not healthy to use it every day

Price: 4/5 for free, but you have to spend over 50 dollars. 


So do I regret buying this? No, actually I don't, but having cold drinks in it is possible around spring. Now autumn started and the weather is changing slowly into cold, so also I am preferring hot tea in these days over cold drinks. For now, I am keeping straw unopened and Sweet drinking bottle closed back in the packing.

Thank you for reading and don't mind to comment your opinions. ^^

Milky Nails Tutorial, D.I.Y

Hello everyone!

My dear readers, because you liked, my nail tutorial from last time, I am bringing you a brand new tutorial, Milky Nails Tutorial, for last sunny days~


The last tutorial was summer inspired. But it was also looking like diamonds or ice. And it had a lot's of sparklings. This time I was thinking about some ideas and I ended up with a Milky Nails Tutorial. It was supposed to be like an ice cream tutorial, but in the end, it's a Milky tutorial. I think this theme is very cute as well. And Ice cream tutorial is too old I think and it's not really innovative. What do you think? I was looking for something new. I don't like stealing the ideas. Also, I was looking for a very low-cost tutorial, as I am still a student. I am not really going to the salons to give me nail makeovers.

For this tutorial, you don't need anything expensive. You can make it only with nail polishes. Well, it will require some creativity. As I didn't use any brush, well you can use a brush if you want. Brushes are so expensive, by the way :D

Anyway, this tutorial should look refreshing. Like a cold milkshake in the summer. Can you imagine wearing my nail tutorial on the beach? Or just outside enjoying a cooling drink? Then a handsome guy will notice your nails... well, this is too science fiction, guys really don't care about nails. Alright, let's say that other girls will see it. And they will be green from being envious and you will just smirk because you used my nail tutorial. Are you ready enough for trying my tutorial? Great! Let's start!
 


What do we need?

1. COLOR BASE: RIMMEL LONDON - RITA ORA #408 PEACHELLA - I love this color! Recently, I have enough of pink colors. This is a wonderful change!

2. MILKY BLUE: LOREAL PARIS - Color Riche #858 Ocean Porcelaine - I used this same nail polish also in the last nail tutorial. I am getting obsessed with this shade.

3. DOTS ON MILKY COLOR (OPTIONAL): ASTOR - Fashion Studio 
#131 - I like how "Vintage" this color is ^w^

4. LINES ON BASE: RIMMEL LONDON - Nail Tip Whitener

5. TOPCOAT: NYC NEW YOUR COLOR - Super Nova Sparkle Top Coat
NOTE:

Don't forget to let each layer to dry completely!

Let's start!



Thank you for reading! I will bring you a new tutorial soon! I hope you can read my handwritten tutorial.

Have a nice day and my comment boxes are waiting for your opinions! I hope you like it. See you next time!

Love or Hate? Super lasting: Holika Holika 디저트 타임 립밤 / dessert time lip balm

Hello everybody! ^^

This time, I am introducing you, first time, an item from Holika Holika! And it looks definitely very delicious~



This one is "upgraded" balm from an old collection. Designs from this cupcake edition were different. (a little bit)


How does it look like?


Absolutely yummy! No, come on, I am writing an almost professional review. 

The design is cute, indeed, but it's not so handy. At least I've got this because of its design. As a decoration it's super cute, but not for every day's travel. Item has a lot's of details, dirt can get stuck there and most importantly, there is no applicator. Or you have to use your fingers. 
The material is solid plastics fairly dyed, but on the top is used the second layer, which can become shabby, in my opinion.


The story about the evil lip balm inside. Love or Hate?

When I was choosing among the lip balms in Holika Holika's store, I didn't like the design of clear balm, so I decided to buy this cutest one. Vivid pink. I tried it when I was about to go to the bed. In the morning, I woke up with the same pinkish lips as I had before going the bed! This is not that bad. Or not?


Was it a tattoo or something?


I couldn't remove it with my make up remover. Ha ha ha, Only Perfect Whip (Cleansing foam for face) helped me. (Perfect whip review here)

Love or Hate? 

Love- when you want to look wonderful in the morning next to your boyfriend. But this is not like casual lip balm, more like lipstick or lip gloss.

Hate- when you make a mistake during applying, you have a BIG problem. It's more like tattooed on your lips. Good luck with removing.






So why I didn't read any review when I was buying it?

Because of a shopkeeper in front of Holika Holika, waving with lovely super cute butterfly pens! I fell for the pen at the first sight. Insanely, I hurried into the shop with pen in my hands and I tried to buy the cheapest thing to get the pen. Holika Holika is not the cheapest store. And I didn't really test this brand before. And this lip balm was cutest one and with a good price~



Summary:
Design of the product: 5/5 super cute!
Promised effect: 2.5/5 I am not sure if I like it or not.
Price: 5/5 around 5,000 won, less than 5 dollars.
Buying again? 3/5 maybe clear balm
