October Beauty Favorites

 

It’s officially Fall here in Canada and I couldn’t be more excited since it’s one of my most favorite season of the year. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been sent several pr products which I’ve shared them on my Instagram feed and been trying them out ever since I got them. Fall weather always makes me excited to try out more skincare products that both hydrating and revitalizing for my skin.

@Laniege Dual Layer Face Oil

First up, I just want to take a few minutes to talk about this Dual Layer Face Oil by Laniege. It’s their new water bank collection line which was launched sometime last month. In case you haven’t heard of the brand, Laneige. It’s a South Korean cosmetics brand owned by Amore Pacific and the brand name comes from La Neige which means Snow in French.

I’m loving the cute funnel drip design. Look how cute it is! Clumsy as I am, a few accident happened in the past and if you’re a beauty blogger, I’m sure you can relate to this. This just helps avoid spillage from happening which I think is brilliant.

I’m obsessed with the formula. It makes my skin feels super smooth and hydrated without feeling greasy whatsoever. Absorbed to skin in an instant and seals all the moisture in.

BB Cushion Hydra Radiance in the shade¬†No. 21 Beige. I love the concept of a BB cushion and once I’ve my hands on this babe, it’s a life changing moment for me. I’m all about products that I can use and apply easily and quickly before rushing out of the door 10 minutes later. And what’s great about this Laniege BB Cushion is that it apply so effortlessly. It’s such a breeze to use this stuff.

The formula is amazing and it lasted me for a good 8 hours wear without touch up. The benefit of having an SPF 50 in this bb cream is huge. This SPF 50+ helps protect your skin from UVA rays while creating a luminous finish to the look. I’ve been using this bb cream for more than a month now and I really love the beautiful pigmentation and good coverage finishes. Try it!

The next skincare product that I’ve been loving is the Bright Renew Original Serum.¬† I love a good serum and this stuff did just that.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing my skin has been looking since I’ve been applying this serum. It’s extraordinary! My skin feels and look brighter and clearer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like to apply the serum on the tips of my fingers and gently work around my face. I then press palms into face for better absorption. A little goes a long way with this product. This is one of my favorite skincare step for self-love. I encourage you to define your own beauty!

@FreshBeauty Rose Floral Toner
#freshlove

Next¬† got Fresh Rose Floral Toner that’s a must have in everyone’s beauty arsenals in my opinion. This stuff really smell glorious! I just can’t explain them in words, you really have to get your own and you’ll know what I mean. The delicately sweet scents of roses are simply intoxicating!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can’t really confirm if it lasted for 24 hours as they claimed but all I know is that this stuff keep my skin stays hydrated by giving that extra boost to my dry skin. I notice this¬† floral scents does help with mood lifting. The fresh and clean smells is everything my body, soul and mind needs right this moment.¬†A cult classic for a reason so definitely give this a try if you haven’t already!

@Bite Lipstick

Since it’s officially fall here where I lived, it’s the perfect time to pull out a bold red lipstick and add this gorgeous shade to my collection. This is the only product I picked up at Marshalls.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The shade Gazpacio is described as a true blue red which is so pretty on the lips and on swatch. I really like the smooth and creamy texture of this formula. The formula is so comfortable and lightweight on the lips.

Last but not least is the Shiseido Ultra Sun Protection Spray with SPF50+. I’m obsessed with the cute packaging. Love the color and the spray applicator. It’s convenient to use and easy to store. All you need is squish the product and apply them all over your body.

#Shiseido sun lotion spray

Don’t ever think of putting down your sunscreen even though it’s fall weather. The sun can still do damage to your skin in cold weather. Remember to wear sunscreen with high SPFs for better protection before rushing out of the door. This is that one product that I’ll be reaching for a lot over the coming months.¬†If this brand is new to you, definitely go and check out their products <here>.

That’s it for my October Beauty Favorites and I hope you find this post helpful.

K_Beauty *PR Samples

Hey guys! So here I am finally doing a Best of K-Beauty products that I’ve received from a brand company in Korea. Shout out to Soyoung from Labstory for spoiling me with these amazing products to try on. I received these products for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

So, here we go:

Wonder Shiny Body Scrub

The first thing that I want to share with you is this big size tube of Wonder Shiny Body Scrub by Aida Cosmetics.¬† I love love the scents of this body scrub. It smells glorious I tell ya’ll!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ingredients about the product as shown on Amazon is as follows:

– Contains 20% walnut shells
– 7 types of fruit extrat
– 10 types fo natural oil
– Contains 4 types fo herb extract
– Sweet and fresh grapefruit flavor

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a close-up shot of the mini beads so that you can see the texture and stuff like that up close. As you can see, it’s not too rough or harsh on my skin whatsoever. In fact, it’s the perfect texture that I’ve been looking for. It’s save to say that it’s by far my current most reached body scrub. Leaving my skin so fragrant, soft and fresh. I’m in love with it!

Body Vital

Next is this Body Vita Show Filter in Lavender which I received to do this review. This is a product that’s really new to me at least and I wouldn’t have thought it would work at all but I was mistaken. This stuff works wonder in the shower and you don’t need a plumber to do it. It smells really good and easy to install. If I can do you, so can you!

It’s been a week now that I’ve been cleaning my body and hair with this shower filter and always comes out of the show feeling refresh and so relax. I suspect it’s the lavender that has those calming properties that’s both aroma therapeutic and relaxing for my body. I really enjoy this product and find a reason to jump in the shower every chance I can. I wouldn’t ask for anything better!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Comes in four amazing scents to choose from with a new recent fragrant in Freesia added to this line.

Main ingredient used in the process, such as:

  • Vitamin-C (Ascorbic Acid),
  • Citric Acid,
  • Mud powder,
  • Powdered skim milk, and
  • Aromatic scent

If you’re looking for a great scent that won’t leave your shower and easy to install, search no more, this shower filter is made for you!

@Dressingtable Handcream

Korea CHEONGSONG Natural Apple Moisturizer Organic Hand Cream¬†is so gentle and easy to use. Natural apples were used in the process of making this hand cream. That’s so amazing!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been using this hand cream ever since my trip to Toronto and have been loving it so much. The cream formula is rich and moist leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth. The consistency is not too thick or runny and not greasy at all. I urge you to try it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least are these Wonder Butter Lip Mask and Sugar Lip Scrub by Aida Cosmetic. It was the first time I’ve tried products from a Korean brand and I really being loving them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like the idea of a plastic container that won’t break when travelling. They’re travel friendly and convenient for you to just pop in your suitcase or into your purse. To be honest, if I’ve to choose between the two, I think my favorite has to be the sugar lip scrub, it’s seriously the best lip scrub ever and it taste delicious!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What I like about the butter lip mask and sugar lip scrub is that they’re safe to be eaten, so you don’t have to rinse off these products. Stress-free just like how I liked it!

Make sure to check on the links of all these products I mentioned above on Amazon or if you find something that catches your fancy.

That’s it for my Best of K-Beauty guys, I hope you like this post. As always, do let me know what you guys think in the comment section below. I hope you found something that you are looking forward to try!

A Peek Inside My PR Box

Welcome to my second blog post of 2018 everyone! I’ve been back to blogging for a week now and I’m so excited to be sharing with you this new series that I’ve been working on to create since last December.

I’ve been receiving many PR packages from brands that I really love and I thought it would be great for me to show you and talk beauty related stuff with you guys. I’m so overwhelmed and grateful to all the brands that have sent me such amazing products to test and try.

I like to give a trendy shoutout to Mr Kim for sending me these amazing pr samples all the way from Korea. A big thanks to you!

#Pack-Tory Mask Pack
*PR Package

When it comes to¬†K-Beauty face products, you can put any of their skincare products on my face and I’d have no complaint whatsoever. I think I’d be quite happy honesty. I’ve been obsessed with Korean skincare brands for the longest time and since I‚Äôm also a huge mask lover as it is, I thought I’d give them all a go and break them down for you. Let‚Äôs see if they make it into my face mask box!

#Pack-Tory

I really like the the box packaging and it would make a perfect gift for your friends or a gift to surprise yourself this coming Valentine. I got two packs of Moisture Hydrogel and two Anti-Aging Hydrogel Mask by Pack:Tory in this cute box. For a retail box, it comes in a pack of 8.

If you’re in the market to look for a get ready skincare that’s both hydrating and helps anti-aging for your skin these Gel Sheet Masks are made for you. If you’ve been experimenting dry patches in the winter, this mask will sort it out in no time. It’s a quick fix for the skin!

Gel Face Mask by Packtory

If you’ve dry skin like me, you need to be very choosy about which masks you put on your face. Many¬†masks that promise to purify, shrink pores and remove blackheads are¬†extremely¬†drying. Instead, look for masks that offer hydration, soothing, or added moisture and hydrogel mask is a great option for those with dry skin.

Inside each pack, you’ll find two separate gel pieces like so. The first half is for the top as shown below and the other part is the bottom half.

Testing

It feels cooling and very lightweight. I really like how hydrating and skinly smooth this product make my skin feels after. The next two days my skin still feels soft and that’s pretty amazing in my opinion.

With the Hydrogel Anti-Aging pack that I’ve tried, i ntoiced my skin has improved significantly. I would repurchase when my sepnding budget permits.

I’ll definitely make room for these masks in my stash. This stuff is amazing! Kudos Pack:Tory!¬†

#Skinae Patch

Next is¬†Skinae Acwin Plus Derm Acne Spot Pimple Absorbing Cover Patch.¬†I’ve heard many great things about this popular product among Koreans and I was so lucky to have the chance to try it out for myself.

Acne Patch by Skinae (Korea)

This product is fragrance free, alchohol free and cruelty free which means no animal testing. Product contains one sheet of patches with 20 patches.

#Skinae Instruction Patch

I get pimples occasionally so this stuff is really great help. When I see a pimple started to form I just put this patch on and leave it overnight and take it off in the morning, the pimple was gone! It works really well on zits, wounds, acne and zits, I’m quite impressed!

The dot

The thin clear hydrocolloid patch feels similar to a hydrogel sheet mask in texture, adhering your skin strongly even through showers and washing. You definitely need to give this a go! I highly recommend it.

Skinae Collagen Eye Patch

Last but not least we got Skinae Phyto Collagen Eye Patch that comes in a pack of 15 sheets. This product is nature-friendly eye patch with no animal originated ingredients.

Individual Packet by Skinae

I’ve been testing out these eye patches non-stop for the last two weeks. I can see my dark under eye circles and puffiness gone each time I use them. I need to try out this longer to see if it reduce the fine lines on the skin. This stuff is so lightweight and comfortable you wouldn’t even noticed you had them on.

Skinae made in Korea

This patch is smooth and soothing on the skin. I really enjoy this stuff.

EYe Patch testing

It’s easy to get distracted by all the different types of Korean beauty products out there, but if you’re a k-beauty lover, try visiting Amazon website to start your year off right!

I heard a lot of Soda drinks, Soda bicarbonate but Carbonate or Soda Facial Wash… Welcome to the new Korean beauty era! This cleanser is made from carbonated water and baking powder. Sounds more like a¬†science lab experiment than a cleansing product, right! Well, this Soda helps dig in deeper in your pores to clear out the dirt, oil and makeup. Truly magical!

Pig-nose Clear Blackheads – facial steam in a tube for starter! This pink clay ingredient helps to soften blackheads and absorbs excess sebum. What is sebum? Well , there is this love –¬†hate relationship with sebum. Too much sebum causes acne and not enough it makes skin dry or cracked. This lava clay product provides¬†heat and helps soften the blackheads and then rinse off with lukewarm water. And voila! For $10.00 a tube at¬†Holika & Holika.

HolyCatEyeShadow-
