Review: TheFaceShop Natural Sun AQ Super White Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++

Thursday, 31 October 2013

Hello, lovelies! I just got back from my design studio (and yes, it's 5 in the morning) and before going to bed, I decided to write a review about a product that I have come to a conclusion that this product goes into my Must-Have list. It's TheFaceShop Natural Sun AQ Super White Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++.


I was discussing with my friends earlier on sun screens that we use everyday and to my surprise, only 2 out of 5 of us use sun screens! Malaysia is a country where it's hot all year around and I think it's very important to use sun screens.

But to be honest, me too, was an ignorant who didn't use any sun screen at all, until one day I went outside my house to play with my baby nephew for a few hours, and next thing I knew, I got a terrible sunburned.

Plus, since I've been using brightening products which are TheFaceShop Flebote White Crystal line for about 6 weeks, I'm desperate for protection! If I left my dorm without putting on sun screen, I feel like my face is burning! According to the beauty assistants at TheBodyShop, that's the result of using a brightening or whitening products without using sun screens. Totally didn't know about that.

Even with my BB Cream that has SPF26 PA+++ or a BB Mousse that has SPF30 PA+++, I still feel the slightly burning feeling on my facial skin so I guess there's only solution to that. That is to get a product with higher SPF i.e. a product like this one.

A quick note, "SPF" stands for “Sun Protection Factor”. The value demonstrates the effectiveness of protection against UV-B, as well as the degree of protection against UV-B when nothing is applied on skin. For example, SPF 25 means that the UV protection product is 25 times more effective on guarding against skin redness (sunburn) from the sun than when nothing is applied on skin.
"PA" stands for “Protection Grade of UV-A”. PA+ signifies the product as having “protection efficacy” with PA ++ and PA+++ indicating strong protection efficacy. In general, the higher the SPF value, the higher the PA value.
In short, UVB causes sunburn and UVA causes long term skin damage. Source

Review | TheFaceShop Face It Aura Color Control Cream

Hello, beautiful people! How’s your week so far? For me, I’m really busy with drawing lessons though I’m taking a break from drawing 10-sketches-per-week session right now. So today I’m gonna write up a review on a single product that most beauty bloggers that I’m following are raving about which is TheFaceShop Face It Aura Color Control Cream.

I believe most of you either already jumped into the CC cream bandwagon or know all about it but haven’t tried it yet but as for me, CC cream is already exist by the time I learned about Korean beauty products. The first 2 weeks of my research is all about minimising my pores but after that I’m all about brightening products. Hence, this particular CC cream.

Review: TheFaceShop Fruits Bowl Hand Cream in Lemon!

Tuesday, 29 October 2013

Hello! I'm back with another review! This time I'll be reviewing about this cute hand cream from TheFaceShop.

I bet most of you guys carry hand cream in your hand bags, school bags, college bags, even port folio bags, nah, just kidding! But for me, I love buying body lotion samples at the drugstore counters and use them as my hand lotions. I love miniatures versions of The Body Shop body butter too!


Anyway, as I was doing my surveys on the best Korean beauty products at the beauty stores in my hometown, of course I did some shopping and got myself lots of samples. It was late August and TheFaceShop was having Merdeka Sale, (In conjunction with our 56th Independence Day) so I got this cute hand cream as a freebie.

Before I thought freebies are like those things that the store can't sell, or products that come in mini version, those that you'll get if you buy a full-size version of it. Like my Nina Ricci Paradis perfume. But I never experience where I bought some products and get a freebie that actually can be bought separately. Well, now that I remember it, The Body Shop done that before where I got miniatures of body shower gels but see? Miniatures. This one comes in full size. Isn't TheFaceShop is great at things like this? You guys saw my October haul, right? Look at those freebies!

Anyway, let's get back to the aforementioned product.

Product Description:
Soften rough hands with Honey Concentrate!
Indulge your hands with sweet and fresh scent of lemon as pure Lemon Extract works with Honey Concentrate and Botanical Oil Complex to rejuvenate and soften the hands.

Product Concept:Intensified hydration and velvety texture hand cream in adorable fruit-like packaging

How to use:
Apply to clean hands as needed by gently massaging the product into your skin.

Capacity: 30ml

Active Ingredients:
Lemon : Whitening
Grape Seed oil : Cell Regeneration
Olive Oil: Intense hydration
Honey: Long-lasting nourishment.

Packaging:

I absolutely adore the packaging! Looks real! I took it out from my school bag the other day and a friend of mine a like "why do you bring lemon to class? We're learning about piping system today." LOL

Texture:


It's medium thickness and slightly milky to me and I just love that. I don't like heavy cream nor do I love those runny ones. It absorbs into my skin after few minutes and doesn't leave sticky feeling. More like matte finish.

Overall, I love this hand cream cause it moisturises my skin and plus, I do see the brightening effect. As you can see, it's gonna finish soon so yes, I'll definitely going to repurchase this. Wait, I still have those Body Chiffon cream. Oh, well. Or I should try the other cream from the same line which are Apple and Blueberry.

This hand cream is retailed at RM29.90 or you guys can order online for a mere 4,900won.

So final verdict: 4/5 minus one point cause the product inside is not that much.

How about you guys? What is your must have hand cream? Or do you prefer hand lotions more? Do tell.

Until next post,

Beauty Talk | Korean Beauty Secrets

Monday, 28 October 2013

As we all know, Korean women and men (no surprise!) are so conscious about their skin condition and hence spend a great deal of time and of course money to get the flawless skin that we all want.

Warning! Medium Song Hye Kyo photos. :D

Ain't that the ultimate praise of them all? Oh! Jo In Sung..~melting~
My favourite Korean actress, Song Hye Kyo is one of those who have admirable skin. I watched all her dramas ever since Autumn in My Heart back in 2002. I was only 12 and even until today, I’m still in love with her acting.

Then, in 2006, I started to join my friends in K-Pop fandom and discovered K-Pop boy bands like Big Bang, DBSK, Super Junior, and SS501. Then, I came to admire Kim Hyun Joong as singers and now actors. Now, you guys know why I’m into TheFaceShop products so much, huh?

Anyway, I just read an article on Korean Beauty Secrets today and would love to share my opinion about it with you guys.

October Skin Care Haul

Sunday, 27 October 2013

Hello, beautiful people! It's a beautiful Sunday morning so get up early and get a great breakfast meal!

Today I'll be sharing on stuffs that I bought throughout this month and I gotta say, compared to last month's haul, this can be called a mini haul.

What more can I say as up until August, I only have Garnier Light complete range, from its cleansing foam, scrub, charcoal cleansing foam, Light Milk toner, Day cream, Oil-Control cream, Night cream, mask sheets and peel-off masks. I actually haven't finished all of them before starting with Korean products. Can't help but feeling all excited to venture on this new beauty regime!

So, without further ado, check out this month's haul!


  • TheFaceShop Raspberry Roots Sleeping Mask Review!
I'm a batwoman, (huh?) I sleep like 3 to 4 hours a day, so I decided to grab this best seller product from TheFaceShop so I can apply it whenever, wherever I want to sleep. I'll just wash my face, and put this on for a quick 20 minutes nap in the evening. Sometimes at 4 in the morning, too. Haha :D 
  • TheFaceShop Natural Sun AQ Super White Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++ (Whitening) Review!
  • TheFaceShop Smart Capsule Color Control Cream SPF40 PA++. Review!
  • TheFaceShop Face It Aura Color Control Cream SPF30 PA+++ in Medium Beige Review!
As I started using brightening and whitening products since mid-September, of course I'm gonna need to protect my skin, hence the sun cream, and after recommendation at my favourite TheFaceShop store at KL Festival, I grabbed both Smart Capsule and Aura CC creams. 
  • TheFaceShop White Mud Nose Pack. Review!
I never tried a nose pack which is why I got myself the White Mud Nose Pack and so far it's working great at getting rid of my whiteheads. Some blackheads. I'm gonna find a replacement when I finished with this one.  
  • TheFaceShop Lovely Mix Dessert Lip Balm Orange. Review!
Comes with cute applicator. I'm sold!
  • Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. Review!
Beauty bloggers are raving about this product so I went and got myself one tub. 300ml is a HUGE tub! 8 purposes in one tub? I'm sold!
  • Skinfood Rice Wash-Off Mask Review!
I tried the Skinfood Rice Wash-Off Mask samples that were given to me last month and instantly fell in love with it. It's a great exfoliating mask and I'm using it every Monday and Friday, after a long day at studio.
  • Etude House Sun Prise Cooling Body Spray SPF50+ PA+++ Review!
I ride scooter to studio in the morning and in the evening and I have to take a big tour circling the campus in order to get back to my hostel so I'm desperate of a sun screen. This is a spray version so it's really quick to apply. 
  • Etude House Magic Bubble Peeling: Creamy Peeling Wash. Review!
Really great at removing dead skin cells. A replacement to my Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum miniature. I'll get the big one when I'm finished with this.



  • Etude House Natural Jelly Cleansing Puff. My old one is decayed. So I got myself a new one. 
  • Etude House Pink Head Band. My Skinfood headband is nowhere to be found. T____T
  • Etude House Oil Control Film. This is a face-saver. Especially at 3 p.m. onwards. 

  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Rice Mask Sheet (Brightening & Complexion Improvement) Review!
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Green Tea Mask Sheet (Hydrating & Energizing)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Acai Berry Mask Sheet (Firming)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Bamboo Mask Sheet (Hydrating & Refreshing)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Mung Bean Mask Sheet (Clarifying)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Honey Mask Sheet (Moisturising & Radiating)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Blueberry Mask Sheet (Highly Nourishing)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Lemon Mask Sheet (Brightening)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Pomegranate Mask Sheet (Skin-Radiating)
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Aloe Mask Sheet (Soothing & Hydrating)
TheFaceShop was having a Buy 5 Free 5 promotion so I went and grabbed 10 and got 10. I guess I'm good for the next 3 months? 



  • TheFaceShop Strawberry Hand & Body Chiffon Cream
  • TheFaceShop Green Grape Hand & Body Chiffon Cream
  • TheFaceShop Gold Kiwi Hand & Body Shiffon Cream
  • TheFaceShop Herb Day Cleansing Cream: Aloe
  • TheFaceShop Herb Day Cleansing Cream: Green Tea
  • TheFaceShop Herb Day Cleansing Cream: Fruit Mix
  • TheFaceShop 10th Anniversary Cotton Box 
Above are all freebies I received cause I went and grabbed few things at one time then come back the next week to grab some more. So far, I'm only using the Herb Day Cleansing Aloe cause it's smaller compared to my Rice Water Bright Cleansing Cream for travel purpose. 

The 10th Anniversary cottons are really great cause it's not your ordinary cotton pads. Get yourself some and you'll definitely want some more after that. While using it, it doesn't rip or absorb my products so much which is awesome compared to drugstore cotton pads. So a total win! I noticed that this kind of pads were given while purchasing my Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum miniature. 

So that's about it. If you guys have anything to ask or want to request reviews, feel free to drop comments and I'd like to thank my followers for constant visits to my blog. I really appreciate your time and Google+ 1's. 

I guess that's all. Au revoir!


Review: Etude House Moistfull Flower Cream

Friday, 25 October 2013

Hello, lovelies! T.G.I.F!!! Finally after a long week, it's Friday and people! I need a break!

Hence, here I am writing another review on a product that to be honest I rarely use cause as this is a moisturising cream, a super at that, I only use it at night, after having a long day at lecture halls i.e. Wednesday. The air-condition is just harsh to my skin, really!

Etude House Moistfull Flower Cream. This is one of the products from the Etude House Moistfull skin care collection that's formulated with Baobab tree extract to soothe dry skin (like all other cream from the collection) but this one is especially formulated with Cherry Blossom (Sakura) Floral Complex that's supposedly soothe even a drier skin.

Product Description:



Moistfull Flower is formulated with Baobab Tree Extract to relieve and replenish dry skin with abundant moisture and a Cherry Blossom Floral Complex to nourish, soothe, and protect the face.

Capacity: 50ml

How to use:
Apply cream to all areas of the face and neck as the final step in skin care. 

Packaging:


 

The box that the product came with.


Like other cream from the same line, it comes in frosted jar and it's in princess-y pink colour. Of course it comes with a cute spatula so you can scoop out the product and apply it to your skin.

Texture/Consistency:

Oh, I love it's texture! It's gel-like, slightly thick texture but once applied, it just absorbed into my skin, leaving my skin supple and smooth. Non-sticky, too! I don't need a lot of it, only a small amount is enough to moisturise my whole facial area. But as I have oily to normal skin, if I use this on my normal days when I don't spend 6 hours in air-conditioned lecture halls, this cream is indeed slightly rich. Even so, it doesn't make my skin look oily and greasy at all.

As for the scent, I love the floral scent! Takes me all the way to Kyoto, walking by a street under the Sakura trees, and.. Oh, well. You get the idea. So heavenly! Though it's gonna sting sensitive noses. Even after application the scent still lingers so those who doesn't like the idea of having to smell the scen for the next like 20 minutes should not be getting this. But actually, it's not that really strong to me. :D

If you're curious what's the difference between the Flower version to the other Collagen and Aloe, it would definitely be the scent.

Overall, I wouldn't say that this moisturiser is something on my everyday skin care routine. One, it's because I'm using my TheFaceShop Flebote White Crystal Brightening Emulsion (morning) and Moisture Radiance
Cream (night ) and two, again this is slightly rich than usual if I were to use this on my normal design studio days i.e. Monday and Friday. So yes, it's perfect for my purpose of buying it, though it didn't seem that way the moment when I bought it on impulse during a sale at the end of last August.

Retailed at RM129.90 at all Etude House Malaysia.

Final verdict: 5/5

So that's about it.

How about you girls? What's your must-have moisturising cream? Do tell!

Until next post,

The Body Shop Malaysia October Sale!

Thursday, 24 October 2013


Okay. Okay. I am busy with design projects and other assignments but that's why we have Online Shopping, right? Plus the local shipping is cheap! But only half of the stuffs shown here were purchased online while the other half were purchased in-store.



So I placed my order on Monday morning and everything arrived this morning! Well, it was supposed to be Next-Day Delivery but they do stated in their official website that it's gonna be a bit late as they're having a lot of orders during sale but 3 days is still super awesome! Unlike oversea orders! Ugh! 

Love the greetings and only then I noticed their Facebook and Twitter page. They put in shredded papers to secure my orders, nice! 
Anyways, feast on photos below! I didn't buy many things cause I actually have re-stocked my The Body Shop essentials last August so I just grabbed little things. 




First, the above three things that I bought because I left all of them at home and one has become my baby nephew's body sponge. Yes, it's the Soft Facial Cleansing Sponge. This is perfect for deep cleansing my skin and it's great at removing from light to medium makeup. Don't worry about the moon-craters like surface of the sponge cause it's gentle to your skin. 


To use:
First, dampen the sponge and lather up your cleansing foam.
Then put your cleansing foam on your face and use the sponge in circular motion, upwards and outwards. 
After using it, rinse thoroughly and dry naturally. 

Next, it's the Facial Buffer. 


I usually use this with my Etude House Wonder Pore Clay Clear mask. Cause After the mask dried out, it can be a difficult task to wash t off, so I use this plus this also can gently exfoliate my skin whilst washing off the mask. Gentle warning though, if you were to get this, do not use it too hard on your skin. The sponge purpose is to gently exfoliate so it does the job for you. Cause a friend did pressed a bit harder on her skin and it quite stings for awhile. 

As for this one, I was just introduced to this Deep Cleansing Face Mask Enhancer quite recently and I can't wait to try it on! This comes in a small white pouch, and you can easily fold this mask enhancer back into it and travel with it. This is great with my wash-off masks. Why? You'll find out why from how to use it. 


To use:
First is to rinse the cloth in hot (hot enough for your hands to endure) and wring out the excess water. 
Second, place the chenille side of the cloth down on your face, and it goes without saying on towel-dried, cleansed face. Put this on for about 2 to 3 minutes to open your pores. This will help the goodness of the masks to be absorbed by the skin better. 
Third, apply your favourite mask i.e. wash-off masks and as for right now, my favourite would be TheFaceShop Real Nature Apple Flesh Mask and Etude House I Need You Yogurt and Honey Wash-Off Masks. 
Fourth, rinse the cloth again in hot (hot enough for your hands to endure) and wring out the excess water. Place it back onto your face, chenille side against your skin, and leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes. Or a bit longer. ^_^
Lastly, when the time's up, turn the cloth over, and use the towelling side to  wipe off remaining mask. 

To make this cloth last longer, it's recommended to hand wash it. Instead of hot water, use cold water for Aloe Vera and Cucumber Wash-Off masks. 
Definitely not recommended for peeling mask. Duh

As for the second part of this mini haul, these all-time favourite Sakura Puree Body Lotion, Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel, and Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub. I did mentioned that I'm a sucker for anything Sakura, right? Oh, plus Vanilla. Well, honey too. Hence the blog name. 
I got these three during a quick visit to The Body Shop in Suria KLCC last Tuesday. Plus, these are sold out in Online Store, so..





Last but not least, the highlight of this mini The Body Shop haul, Extra Virgin Minerals Powder Foundation Brush. 
I bought this online cause it's not available at the store.

To be perfectly honest, I'm not really a makeup person. After skin care, I usually use my TheFaceShop Natural Sun Absolute Quality Super White Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++, TheFaceShop Aura Colour Control Cream SPF30, TheFaceShop Power Perfection BB cream or Maybelline Pure.Pact Mineral Compact Foundation, and finish off with with my Mary Kay Mineral Loose Powder. I never once tried any liquid foundation and I always use my fingers to apply my BB cream. 

My first ever foundation brush is from Mary Kay, and I do hope this one can be a replacement. If this come out as a winner, I'll get the rest of the collection. If not, I'll just go ahead get a new set of Mary Kay Mineral brush set. 

Alright, that's about it. 

How about you guys? Do you have recommendation for cleansing tools? Clarisonic Cleansing brushes are so hot right now, I know but I'm just a student. Architecture Student at that who needs at least 100 bucks per design project, so I gotta stick to small budget over here. I heard Olay Pro X Advanced Cleansing System is pretty affordable which is why I'm on waiting list on my favourite drug store which is Watsons cause apparently, all girls in Malaysia want it!

What's your favourite body scrub? Do tell. Cause all mine are from either The Body Shop or Watsons. 

How about favourite brush set? Mine is Mary Kay Mineral Brush set. But I guess I'm a little bias over here cause it's my ONLY brush set. But it's been 2 years and I need new ones. 

Anyway, until next post, take care and only one more day to weekend! Toodles!

Tried: Etude House I'm Blooming Brightening Wash-Off Gel

Wednesday, 23 October 2013

Hello, lovelies! It's 3 in the morning and I just finished sorting like 2/3 of paper works in my dad's office so I'm gonna write a review before hitting the sack tonight, err..this morning. Okay, now I'm confused. O.o

Anyway, as I received a lot of samples from Etude House beauty stores, this is one of them. In fact, I got like 10 of them. LOL That's what you get if you go to 4-5 different stores. :)


Review: Etude House I Need You, Pearl Extract! Mask Sheet

Tuesday, 22 October 2013

Hello, beautiful people! Today I'll be reviewing the first Mask Sheet I tried from Etude House which is I Need You, Pearl Extract Mask Sheet. I first tried this mask sheet I think earlier this year. Just fell in love with it.

Etude House I Need You, Pearl Extract! Mask Sheet


Pearl Extract 1000mg
Bright skin and Shiny. 

This mask contains minerals and amino acids and essence containing collagen composition that calm the skin and remain elastic while the mask comfortably rest your skin brught and light.

Review: The Body Shop White Musk Fragrances

Friday, 18 October 2013

Hello, lovelies! Here I am at the airport after spending 4 crazy days at home, catching up with my family and friends. God, I miss them already.

Anyway, I would like to share with you guys about one thing (well, among many things) that me and mom have in common. Yes, it's The Body Shop White Musk fragrances. 



We both love all kinds of perfume and while we both ventured into so many other perfumes, we always come back to this collection. Restocked again and again. I'm always a big fan of Nina Ricci but I only wear those on special occasion. But for everyday at my university, this is my go-to fragrances.


Launched in 1981, White Musk® is a world first and a landmark for the fragrance industry – the first cruelty-free musk fragrance to arrive on the market. The fragrance pioneered the use of synthetic musk in replacement of real musk which is extracted from the civet deer using cruel and painful methods. The Body Shop has given their best selling fragrance a sensational, uber-stylish makeover.

I think I saw the above poster somewhere last year. Feminine and sensual. Just love it.

Let's start with the first product I'm hooked onto, which is it's basic White Musk® Eau de Toilette.


A groundbreaking cruelty-free product. Our original, iconic White Musk® was one of the first ever fragrances to use man-made musk rather than musk taken from deer. Notes of velvety musk, floral lily and sensual ylang ylang with hints of fresh galbanum and basil - combined to create the sensual top notes, provide the initial scent of the fragrance and awaken and stimulate the senses. Notes of velvety musk, oriental jasmine, floral lily and rose - combine to create the feminine heart notes and are the dominant notes of the fragrance. 100% Vegetarian and Choose Cruelty-Free Beauty.\

Above is taken from the official website and from my point of view, I totally agreed. Jasmine, Lily and Rose. Three of my favourite flowers. In one bottle of my favourite perfume. Perfecto! As this one lasts for about 4 to 6 hours so if I have classes all day, I'll opt for the White Musk® Perfume Oil instead. 

This one is the iconic White Musk® fragrance in concentrated perfume oil. It lasts for about 8 hours and I usually put this on my wrist and behind my ears. Oh, one of the reason why I love this perfume oil above all others, it contains no alcohol. 

Ever since I'm into skin care products, I started to layer my fragrances as well. So usually after shower, I will use my White Musk® Smooth Satin Body Lotion. 



After finishing my The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion, I bought this one in 250ml  but this also comes in 400ml. Of course 400ml is too big for me to travel back and forth with from home to university. So 250ml is more than sufficient. Oh, actually it also comes in travel sizes of 60ml. Love those miniatures!

I love this body lotion so much cause it moisturizes my skin leaving it smooth and soft. The scent stays for about 2 to 4 hours without layering with perfumes. The texture is also great as it is non-sticky and but it usually took about 10 to 15 minutes for it to be absorbed into my skin. 


Another addition to my body lotion is the White Musk® Voluptuous Velvet Body Creme. Again, I have finished the big 200ml tub, so I bought this travel friendly 50ml small tub and instead of using it for my whole body, I just use this targeting areas like my elbows, ankles, knees and hands.





It has a slightly thicker consistency than the lotion which I love. Having the same scent, but more buttery way. Well, it contains Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana. This gives me 24 hours hydration, and as it hydrates my skin, it leaves my skin soft and smooth. A total go-to hydrating body cream. 

On those nights when I have to attend short tutorials and discussion with studio mates, I'll go for my White Musk® Fragrance Mist.





On it's own, it can lasts for about 2 to 3 hours. So, if I need to refresh myself instantly I'll just spray this on. It has watery light consistency. 

So, that's my White Musk® Fragrance collections. Like I said, I have so many other perfumes but I always come back to this one. Simply wonderful. 

Have you guys tried any of these fragrances before? What is your favourite perfume of all time? 
Do share your experience with me cause I would love to experiment with new perfumes like ALL the time. 

Until next post,

Review: Etude House I Need You Honey Wash-Off Mask Part 2

Tuesday, 15 October 2013

Hello, beautiful people!

To continue the previous post where I was experimented with a friend where we were trying out Etude House I Need You Honey Wash-Off Mask Ginseng (read all about it here), today I'll be reviewing the Red Ginseng one. 



Review: Etude House I Need You Honey Wash-Off Mask

Monday, 14 October 2013

Hello, beautiful people people! It's Monday but it's holiday! Well, actually I'm waiting for my flight bound to Kota Kinabalu in approximately 2 more hours. Yep, I was so excited this morning I arrived at the airport 4 hours before my flight. LOL

Anyway, today I would love to do a review on a wash-off mask that I tried on my friend last night, after a long hours in the hall, attending our driving license compulsory 5 hours lecture, and it's I Need You Honey Wash-Off Mask from Etude House.

 


This wash-off mask supplies the nourishment of Eastern medicinal herbs for skin tightening, antioxidant care and honey to soften, nourish and replenish skin.

Review: Etude House Belle Dress Body Set Lovely Look

Sunday, 13 October 2013

Hello! It's a beautiful Sunday morning and I just finished packing for my flight tomorrow. ^_______^
I'll be flying home for the mid semester break, yay!

As for today I'll be reviewing this Belle Dress Body Set in Lovely Look by Etude House.

Let's wear what we feel like to wear! Dress up!


Product Description:
It has the flower perfume complex that builds up lovely feeling as if wearing a chiffon dress freshly out of the dress room with the body perfume that sustain its scent all day long.
The set contains moisturising ingredients. 



The set comes with 300ml Body Wash and 300ml Body Lotion, plus with the extra little freebies that come in these cute packaging.
Actually, above is somewhat stated on the box. It was in totally broken English. So I tried to improvise a little bit though I failed!!

Packaging:

To be honest, I got this body set early this year, cause I fell in love with the packaging at the first sight. Though weirdly I am not really into Etoinette Princess-ey concept.





Looks so cute, right? Bell-shaped, with classic pattern, nice purple hue, with golden pumps, so elegant! It's just that it's made of plastic, but it won't be as practical if it's glass as I might broke them in the bathroom. LOL


The miniatures are in tubes, so it's easier to travel with. 

Scent:
Formulated with hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and mineral water, the flower perfume ingredients, which are Rose, Jasmine with Musk, maintain a refreshing scent all day.

To me it has a pale scent of lavender, which I like cause I only love strong scent of lavender on scented candles so this one is great. It's simple, girlish, with a slight hint of sophistication. Just elegant.

Texture:

This is the body wash. Love the light gel texture. I do need a change from my other creamy shower cream sometimes. Especially during the weekends when I don't need to go out and just stay in my dorm all day. 


As for the body lotion, I really like it as it moisturises my skin right after I went out of shower. It's not sticky and absorbed into my skin quickly. Gold star!

As I use it in the morning, it really lighten up my mood. So simple as I only have to use two things. No need to add on perfume. Personally I love lavender so this one is awesome.

When I told my friends about this, they suggested to try the shower cologne as well. Huh. Maybe I should get it on my next visit to Etude House. ^_^

Have you guys tried this before? If so, feel free to share your thoughts and drop some comments. :)

Alright, I'm all set to my driving lesson, so until next post, toodles!
