Mizon Hyaluronic Ultra Suboon Cream | Review

5/13/2015





Say hello to my new daily moisturiser!
When my La Roche-Posay moisturisers started to give their last breath, I knew I had to get something else to replace them. For some reason, I didn't felt that I had to spend more than 17 euros on each of them...and I really hadn't. I mean, I don't mind spending the extra dollar or euro on skin care, but if there are cheaper options you bet that I'll grab them first for sure. 

I use this one exclusively for the day time and I usually just apply it in the mornings after cleansing and toning and before applying sunscreen/ sun block and my makeup for the day. I'll talk later about the one I'm using for the night time ( specially because I need to take photos and edit them first...oh the blogger drama). But now onto to this wonder! Say hello to the Mizon Hyaluronic Ultra Suboom Cream. 
I believe that by the name you can see why I picked this up...Hyaluronic Acid? Oh yeah! I mean, as someone who struggles with dehydrated skin on a daily basics, there's nothing like this. I shall blame my " Hyaluronic Acrid craze" on Caroline Hirons ( a.k.a. the Skin Care Queen...at least for me)
This lovely deep blue and sturdy plastic tube of 45 ml contains one of the best moisturisers I ever used. It doesn't have a creamy texture like the regular kind, it's more of a gel-like texture. It's super light, has a tiny bit of scent ( nothing too strong in my opinion, specially because as soon as you apply the product onto your face, the scent just evaporates) and a little goes a long way.
What I particularly like is how this works with makeup. Because it has Hyaluronic Acid, this moisturiser retains all the water and moisture, leaving me with a really healthy and plum skin and keeping the oil out of my face as much as possible - although it won't keep out sweet and that kind of stuff, so if you happen to run the marathon ( or trying to catch the bus), that type of fluids will show up for sure - but that quite normal right?

But the best? It's price. I've checked this guys at multiple store and it's price is never above 6$!
Overall, I'll keep repurchasing it - unless I find it's Aqua Gel "brother" better. 
If you are looking for a good moisturiser that leaves your skin ready for makeup, this is for sure a really lovely option. 

I got mine at Jolse , but you can easily find it at any online store that carries Mizon. 
Thank you for reading! Take care and have a nice day!


Another Amazing Swap with Shayne

5/11/2015












Finals season is seriously killing me. But I better not even mention it...
So, I'm really happy to share another Swap I did with the amazing Shayne from Queen Of All You See , although this time was quite different because we actually knew what we where going to send each other. Nonetheless, I'm really happy with our swap and I would repeat it again and again without thinking twice.
Now, anyone who knows me well knows that I am proud geek and specially, a proud Potterhead. You can all imagine my hapiness when I opened the packaged and saw that amazing wrapping!! I couldn't contain myself!! I had to be super carefull with the unwrapping because I wanted to have as much as possible. Thank you, Thank you Shayne!!
Shayne is one of the sweetest persons I know and I feel really blessed to call her my friend. <3 And please, be sure to visit her blog to see what she got and say hello! Her blog is amazing and deserves all the love!




Starting with something that was on top of my wishlist, the Shu Uemura Lash Curler was a must-ask. We don't have Shu Uemura here (SHAME) and as far as I know, Shiseido doesn't carry their lash curler here either (DOUBLE SHAME) and I needed a good lash curler like...ASAP. Mostly because the one I had was quite old and the shame was just wrong. With this I can curler my lashes...like all of my lashes and it doesn't just, I don't pull skin...it's just perfect!
I know that it's a bit pricey but I think it's justified. Just like brushes, a good lash curler can make a huge difference. 




Next, the Etude House Dear My Wish Lipstik in PK003. I don't know, can we ignore the gorgeous and cute packaging? I think we can't...and yes, at first that's what made me ask for this...until I tried it out and ended up buying another 3 shades online because this formula is just perfect.
It's super creamy and has a bit of glossiness to it, but with time that wears off and leaves a stain without feeling dry or uncomfortable. I dare to say that I like this more than my M.A.C. lispticks...and it's M.A.C , what can't we like about it? (except their really dry and super uncomfortable matte lipsticks like RiRi Woo and other alike)
This particular shade is just perfect. It's a really bright pink with a hint of red, which makes it just amazing for any time of the year. You can see me wearing it here  and I have to say that I am currently controlling myself to not get another 4 shades, specially their nudes. Especially when I want to get one or two of their new liquid lipsticks.
Do I need more lipsticks? Not really. Does it matter? Not really.




More Etude House? Of course! Meet the Etude House Color Lips-fit , also known as the most comfortable liquid matte lipsticks you'll probably find. I've worn these a lot, specially as tints for a gradient lips - we can use them like that too - and I even ordered another shade that surprisingly looks nice on me ( I'm sorry, but it's just strange when Orange looks good on me, well done Etude!)
PK002 Silhouette Fit Pink is a really Bright and Neon-like pink that I'll rock durinh this summer for sure. It's just one of those shades that makes me happy just by looking at it.
PK003Fantasy Fit Pink has a hint of orange in it and it's also quite bright but I don't really mind it because surprisingly looks quite good on me.
RD301 Perfect Fit Red is a classic red although not as dark as it appears. It's really classic and I think I'll for sure choose this bad boy for an upcoming event.





Have I mentioned how I've been looking for the perfect mascara and how I love the Korean formulas? After my good experience with the VMV mascara, I wanted to try something else. 
Everyone seems to love the Etude House Lash Perm All Shockcara Mascara and I decided to give it a try. I never had a mascara with such wand and so far I like it, I can actually feel my lashes being "brushed" with this mascara. 
I'm still curious about other mascaras, like the Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara or the Japanese mascaras from Majolica Majorca and Fairy Drops but so far, I really like this one. At least doesn't irritate my eyes and doesn't make me want to scratch me eyes off - looking at you maybelline. 


And lastely but not least,  Shayne sent me also a sample size of the Etude House Pearl Aura essence - I've tried it and I think it breaks me out...which is sad because I wanted to get an essence but I don't want to spend 40$ on a bottle from Missha...any recommendations? 
And the Mug cover <3 I mean...I IT'S CUTE AND IT HAS A PINK BOW !! I'm currently using it to decorate one of my cups on my vanity. It's just too pretty and I love to look at it. 

Again, thank you Shayne for all the amazing gifts! 
And guys, be sure to check Shane's post on here blog too!

Thank you very much for your time, take care!

With Love,
Diana

Missha Time Revolution Clear Toner | Review

5/02/2015





May the " let's do all the reviews I can " week start. I'll probably over-post a bit but...after so much time, what else could I do?
So, I decided to talk about one of my most recent Skin Care acquisitions , the Missh Time Revolution Clear Toner containing both BHA and AHA - can you hear the bells? I did as soon as I saw this! 
I've been trying to find a good toner with both acids in it but it was quite difficult, specially because some are either too strong or too expensive. So you guys can imagine my happiness when I saw this at Jolse.com. 

Now, this came in a really big and strong plastic-that-looks-like-glass bottle containing 250ml of toner, which is a lot. A little goes a long way with this toner.
I don't find it rash or super strong on my skin, quite the opposite actually. For instances, when ever I use the FAB pads and I pass this afterwards, my skin thanks me a lot.  
At the beginning I would feel a simple tickling - nothing strong - but nowadays I don't feel anything, besides my skin getting super soft.  
Besides that, I've been noticing that I don't get as many spots and break outs like I used too and more importantly, my scares are fading! I can't even explain how good it is to look in the mirror and see my skin without so many red and dark marks around my cheeks. Everything is currently fading. 
I've also noticing that my pores are getting more unclogged as well - they still need a bit of work but I might get something else to help me with them, although I'm more preocupied with my marks and my skin texture.

And speaking of texture, this combined with other products - like my Mizon Serum and my FAB Ultra Repair Cream - are helping my skin texture to look more even and plump. 

Overall, it's one of the best products I ever tried and I'll keep repurchasing it for sure. Currently I'm just thinking about adding an Essence to my routine...any recommendations? The Missha Essence is quite expensive but I think that the Secret Key looks similar? 

Lastely but not least, I got my bottle from Jolse for 25.98$  but I believe that you can find it wherever you prefer ( I usually go for Jolse because of the Shipping and because I always get points for buying there)

I hope that you liked this review, take care everyone!
