[REVIEW] Etude House My Castle Sweet Cookie

Hands down to my favorite hand cream ever (titled above)!!!!!! It is from Etude House My Castle handcream line and I think it is their latest handcream line. There are a total of 4 My Castle handcreams and all of them looks and smells nice! What more is that each and every design of the product are unique. I would keep the packaging once it is finished. I only owned one, which is their Sweet Cookie and it is my favorite among all four. I will attach the handcream line at the end of the post. I could not align the photos properly because I am blogging through phone. The blue castle gives out a nice fresh scent (hard to describe in words), the green emits rose scent and the pink castle emits fruity scent if I am not mistaken. I have worked at Etude House before so I get smell the handcreams often. Haha. I swear that the brown one (Sweet Cookie) I have has no cons. Let me list out the pros;
- cute packaging (really adore the peeking gingerbread man)
- portable (can easily be carried any…

[REVIEW] Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion Magic Mint

I am currently blogging from work (sparing some time to write a post because I have no current task). In this post I am going to review Etude House's Magic Any Cushion Magic Mint which contains spf 34 and properties to brighten the skin and hide blemishes.
I often apply the cushion to work, and no other application such as bb cream or concealer after that (honestly because there is no one to impress at work, lol). My thoughts on this product is.....meh. What I only love about the cushion is that it works as a good sunscreen, gives a pretty highlight effect (even can be seen when taking photos), moisturizes and brightens my face. Sometimes I do not like the immediate whitening effect simply because my face appears the whitest than my neck and other exposed skin. I like it more when a whitening sunscreen comes out like a natural look (Etude House Surprise Natural Corrector is doing a good job on this). The sun protection task for the magic any cushion only lasts for half a day. I a…

First Rose Rose Shop Haul

I was deciding to change my skincare products as effects of the current skincare that I am using (The Face Shop's green tea serum and lotion) is deteriorating...it still does good job on my skin in terms of moisturizing but other promising outcome such as whitening is not doing well. Previously when I first used the serum, the results showed in about 2 weeks in terms of whitening the post-acne mark. But now, it does not do much of the task anymore.
Before I have used The Face Shop's clean face line, The Body Shop's tea tree line and Etude House's AC Clinic Line to clear up pimples. Out of three, Etude House AC Clinic Line won my heart and my skin. It decreases my pimples drastically. I do not break out much as for now, but the aftermath of pimples on my face is despairing. So I contempt to look for a product that not just ease up the pimples, but also clearing the acne scars, whitens and moisturizes the skin and also delivering proper nourishment required for my skin ty…

[REVIEW] Missha Pure Source Sheet Mask Lemon

I did not take any pictures during the application of using this product because I have forgotten and the product does bad to my skin.
The smell: Combination of lemon and bitter scent? Thing is, I do not fancy the smell.
The size: as someone who has quite a small face, it is oversized. I do not like it when a face mask appears to be shabby on my face, like too much of the mask wrinkle is showing. I like my masks neat. As much as I don't like the unfit mask, I let it stay on my face for the usual 10~15 minutes.
After the application, I pat the serum left on my face for my skin to absorb. The next day........I broke out >.< small pimples are showing around my chin area. I do not really break out on my chin area. When I used a lemon face mask from The Face Shop, I did not encounter any skin problems. TFS's one is way better than Missha because my skin brightened for a short period of days.
My verdict for Missha Pure Sheet Mask Lemon: 0 out of 5 stars. Won't be purchasing th…

[REVIEW] Etude House Bebe Foot Mask

150716: I am freaking tired right now but I am sparing some time to blog. I just arrived back home from a 3-night stay in the capital. It is only my 3rd day of working and clients already went overboard, so I finished work 30 minutes later than the actual time. Looking at the bright side, I won't be going to work for 4 days. I love my employer more now.

The front packaging. Contains a pair of foot mask inside. Here are some of the contexts from the back packaging:-
Easy and comfortable foot care sheet that makes sleek clean feet with the effect of removing keratin, relaxing the foot odor and others by wearing it."
"Directions: 1. Wash the feet cleanly and remove the moisture to wear the sheet on the feet. 2. After 1 hour ~ 1 hour 30 minutes, take off the sheet and cleanly wash off the remaining solution. 3. After 4 - 6 days, the keratin is naturally peeled off and the keratin is completely peeled off after about 2 weeks."
FYI, keratin is an intensely dried patch/part on …

Etude House Haul (for the 3rd time)

I swear Etude House should ban me from entering their store because once I stepped in, I could not help but to burn money. Their promotion is still ongoing until 19th July, if I am not mistaken. Below are the purchases from my 3rd trip since the promotion. Purchases are from Etude House Brunei Time Square branch.

3 items for $9.90 only!!!!!! (Selected item only). This consists of:- 1. A pack containing small packets of sleeping masks with different functionalities. With an additional firming eye cream from the Collagen Line as a free gift. I will add the eye cream to my usual skincare routine. Yeay! 2. Exfoliating foot mask 3. Moisturizing foot mask. Really need these feet pampers because I have a small dry patch on my right feet. No matter how many times I moisturize, the dryness won't go away. :(

There is a total of 7 sleeping masks. I will list out each of their unique properties below from left to right.
