    Beauty Haul | Althea Korea

    Happy weekend! Today, I’m going to share another beauty haul from Althea Korea. I have ordered this package last month but it took more than 2 weeks to reach me since it was processed and shipped from Korea. Anyway, my purchase is mostly skincare products to replace my current one which already finished by the time I received this package. So, without further a due, let’s get on with it!

    I love the box colour as it’s remind me of the upcoming EID celebration which will be next weekend! It’s crazy how the time flies these days.

    Althea purchase:
    1. the SAEM – Urban Eco Harakeke Toner
    2. ONSAEMEEIN – BIFIDA100% Natural Face Serum
    3. Innisfree – Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm
    4. It’s My Cushion – Cushion Puff

    This is the latest product in the market and I hardly can find any review. I just go with my instinct when I bought this and it is said that its good for those who have sensitive skin like moi. Surprisingly this product is really good and it has watery consistency instead of oily and I really love how it make my skin feel more hydrated especially during night time.
    I read a lot of good reviews for this toner and it did work well with my skins. Now, I only need to wait and see how long a bottle of this toner can last as my previous La Soul toner can last up to 3 months eventhough the price tag is on pricier side.
    Innisfree Jeju Volcanic blackhead balm is another top and popular Korean’s product in the market. I have use it only once now and I haven’t see any significant change on my most stubborn blackheads especially on my nose area. Lets cross our finger that this will work its magic and finally remove my blackheads, OK? You probably wondering why I bought the cushion puff HAHAHA It’s was only for RM3 and I need to ensure that I bought above RM99 for free shipping. Still, I do need the cushion puff to apply my foundation/CC cream or QQ cream.
    All in all, I’m very happy with my purchase. Though it took more than 2 weeks to reach me but I’m satisfied as all the products came in good condition due to good packaging method (bubble wrap is amaze-ball!). Perhaps I should write about my daily skincare routine next time?
    Till then x

    Minimalist | Daily Make up Essentials

    Blessed Sunday! I hope everyone had a great weekend so far and you are not alone – dreading for Monday to come HAHA
    So today I’m going to share my everyday “minimalist” make up essential since I only use these 6 products (sometimes even 5!) for my daily make up. Shall we?
     
     
     
    Voila! Only these 6 products that I use on daily basis. I’m a very simple person and these products helped to achieved the ‘fresh’ and ‘presentable’ looks (at least I don’t turn up at office looking super pale and look dishelvel).
    • La Soul – QQ Cream in Ultralight shade
    • Maybelline NY – Clearsmooth All in One compact powder in 03 Natural shade
    • The Face Shop Eyebrows pencil in 02 Gray Brown
    • Missha The Sytle 3D Mascara in Black
    • IN2IT Gel tint in Melon shade
    • Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in 01 Black (last because I didn’t use this almost everyday, only when I feel like I needed some extra boost and I use this to tight-lined my eyes)
    I only wear foundation once in a blue moon (on special occasions but very rare these days lol) and I usually prefer to use my absolute favorite combo of QQ Cream as my base and then go over with the powder using the big fluffy kabuki brush.
    In case you’re new here then you probably won’t understand my obsession with natural and thick brow – so a good eyebrow pencil is crucial for me. I can forgo mascara and eyeliner, as long as my brows are done – perfectly! Since removing the waterproof gel eyeliner is a pain in the ***, I only use it once in a while and most of the time I will proceed with applying mascara to both upper and bottom lashes before I use my recent favorite of Gel lip tint from local brand IN2IT 🙂 So, my whole daily make up routine only took me about 10 to 15 minutes top and I really really love how these few products make me look super fresh and ready to take on the day! 🙂 x
