[Pink Box Apr 2013] Etude House AC Clinic Intense line


I've received March's Pink Box at the end of March actually, but I wanted to use it for awhile to write a better and more truthful review. So here it is~

It works really well! 
Well I wanna put this before & after pic at the front of my post cos I was super awed by how fast and effective it is. Even the pores around the acnes seem to be smaller!

Items in the box includes AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot & Red Spot Balm, also a bag of gifts (Fashion Queen Denim nail set, toe seperator and a Pearl mask) from the ever lovely Miss Min~

Sorry about the picture quality as I ripped it from my Instagram >.<

I have 3 or 4 new pimples clustered together on my left cheek after coming back from HK (sigh, climate change back to the humid SG) and I was too happy to receive the box. Its like they heard my trouble and sent this specially to me :')
The AC Clinic Intense Pink Spot Powder set comes with a small Pink Spot Powder water and a packet of cotton buds which has a sharp tip to precisely apply the Pink Spot Powder. Do not shake the Pink Spot Powder when using! All you need to do is to dip a cotton bud into the sediment (pink powder that settled in the water) and apply only to acne spots. It dries out the acne with its oil-absorbing qualities. Also, it contains natural salicylic acid (which kills acne bacteria) and also Hinoki Cypress, Chaga Mushroom and Saururus Chinensis extract which are the best natural ingredients to heal acne. The smaller bottle, which is the Pink Spot Powder Water, is more for use in the day (is white in colour) and can be worn over make-up. In fact, do you know that all products in Etude House AC Clinic line are non-comedogenic (doesn't clog pores)? AWESOME!! P/s. the product is really effective on acnes so it stings when you apply it. It is completely normal.

The Red Spot Balm is something really cool - it is made specially to whiten and fade acne scars! I know right, live saver this product is! Because everyone has their youth a.k.a. puberty, we are all prone to have breakouts and acne as we are growing up. Some of us may no longer have acne, but scars remain. This is the best invention ever, to lighten scars and reveal new and bright skin again~ Generally, I apply this on my acne area and massage till it absorbs. Its very hygienic cos it comes with a spatula to scoop out the cream instead of having dig your nasty fingernails into it. It feels really moisturizing too, so no worries that this product will dry out your skin. Its soft and silky and gets absorbed quickly. It comes with a mini AC Clinic Daily Acne Foam Cleanser which I loveee and will purchase the bigger one. It has a herbal smell and my skin feels squeaky clean after, and gets your skin ready for more acne clearing action.

I use it in this order: Cleanser* > Toner > Gel Lotion > Red Spot Balm* > Pink Spot Powder* and it helped A LOT. The acnes I have were hard (eew) and lumpy, not to mention really red and painful. It actually healed in like 3 days, but I got lazy and it swelled again :(((( haha I believe its best to stick to this routine till its entirely healed, and not get lazy like me cos I paid the price :( But now I've been back on track and I realize not only my acne got a lot less bumpy (a lot lesser, trust me) but my pores have shrank as well! I still have the scar there (as I get acne a lot on that particular area) so I am relying on Red Spot Balm to lighten them! Also I've not been getting new acnes (touch wood!) thanks to this awesome routine.  One thing - this routine is better for acne-prone people so if you don't have troubled skin, please stick to your initial routine as this may dry out your skin. This routine IS a bit drying, but I used the moisturizer from the series (AC Clinic Gel Lotion) and it feels okay already! ^^

Etude House AC Clinic line is something that all young girls should try as its effective and affordable. Please find out your skin type and concerns before trying out so you'd know if it is suitable for your skin! ^^

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*

It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*

It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

Buy & Sell Hello Kitty plushies!!

Hahaha okay so I received over 10 emails on whether I have an extra Macdonald's Hello Kitty to let go or not. Fact is that I didn't buy any >.< So I decided to create a blog post where you Kitty collectors can interact and hopefully get a reply from a potential buyer/seller. Simply comment on this post! :)

Begin your comment with WTB (want to buy) or WTS (want to sell) for easier reference!

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…
