Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence-In Primer

I ordered this primer from Sasa online, back in December. It was cheaper than eBay by a couple dollars. I think this essence-in primer has been out for quite a while now, since I’ve seen this Etude House packaging here and there. I bought this because earlier in the winter months I was having really dry skin, and my makeup would almost always just dry up and become flaky. After using this though, my powder foundation stayed on longer (and looked better too!), and also, my skin was more hydrated during the day.

This primer essence is a dual product, so it hydrates like an essence would, and helps makeup stay on like a primer would. Kind of great for people with dry skin, I’d say.

Review: The FACE Shop – Brightening Cleansing Oil

IMG_4496Brightening Cleansing Oil (with Prune)

– – from the OIL SPECIALIST series

I got this cleansing oil a week ago at The FACE Shop store in Pacific Mall (Pmall). I wasn’t intending on buying anything there when I went with my friends, but I suppose I got sucked into the appeal of a whitening, brightening cleansing oil. I was looking for a whitening product of some sort, since I recently decided to try whitening my face again (to even out the skin tone). But I was also kind of eyeing cleansing oils ever since I saw the Korean beauty show with Eugene of S.E.S. where they were featuring skincare for dry skin.

Chia Seed Water 100 Series

Recently my friend, Charlene, found this new Chia Seed collection in a beauty boutique in northern K-town. She first bought the Chia Seed Toner, and then also decided to try out the Eye essence. Then a few weeks later we found that The Face Shop had a store in Pacific Mall as well. Since I was running low on moisturizer, I decided to indulge in the Watery Lotion myself.

I will slightly review three products from this line.

Dariya Palty Bubble Hair Dye – Namachoco Waffle

So I dyed my hair for the first time ever today.

I had red, pink, and lilac highlights before, but never dyed my whole head.

I knew about the brand, Palty, since I think five or six years ago, when I was into Japanese fashion and stuff. At that time Palty was the craze among fans. My gosh, I still remember, it was like the cool brand of hair dye on Soompi forums. Anyway, yeah, so I knew about it for a while now. But then since dyeing my whole head of hair went against my “principles” (aka my Beautician mother’s brainwashing/random lectures on how non-Professional beauty products are the worst evil concoctions ever created)… I never wanted to change my hair colour fully or anything. Until… well, now.

The hair dye I used was

I got taken in by her bangs in this picture, tbh. =_=. And the colour looked brown but natural-looking, but.. nice? It looks more red-toned in this picture though.
