Mamonde Rose Water Soothing Gel

Annyeong Haseyo 🙋
Hey guys, been away for a while. I’m back to do a review about this moisturizer gel from Korean brand called Mamonde (* mamongdeu ;))

I bought this from my friend around October last year. It cost me around 10 dollars for 300ml.
The concept is similar with the Aloe Vera Gel or Snail Gel version from other brands.

image

Pink rose, I was gonna say the meaning of it, but unfortunately I don’t know, hahaha. I only know Red Rose for love, Yellow Rose for friendship (correct me if I’m wrong).

image

The packaging is made of plastic but it’s quite sturdy, without inner lid.
I think it’s also multi purpose gel, I’m not really sure since it’s all written in Korean (I can read Hangul but I don’t speak Korean).

image

It has rose scent, not too strong and not too soft.
Texture, not too thick and not too watery, it’s moving when I tilt it.
But, one suggestion for you guys, do not put your gel type moisturizer in a hot room temperature.
I put it inside my cupboard but I don’t know why somehow the temperature inside it is as hot as my room (while I’m going out for a day). In my room at my house in different city is not like this, eventho the room’s temperature os hot, but not inside my cupboard.
The result is, the heat change the gel’s texture. Now, it’s getting more watery and smells a bit different than before.

Anyway, for the gel itself, it doesn’t feel sticky that long. It’s easy to absorb, I usually use it on my face, and around belly+chest.
For my dry skin, it’s not moisturizing enough if I use it alone. I layer this with other moisturizer to get a better hydration.

It’s also a good product for burnt skin, I mean like sunburnt or splashed by hot oil while frying, because it’s soothe the skin, reduce inflammation as a first aid.
Not bad for 10 dollars multi purpose gel.

That’s all for my quick review.
Hope you guys find it useful.

The Balm and LT Pro Liquid Lip Colour Matte

Hello. How are you guys in this May? May all the good things come to your life ☺.

Okay, now back to the topic. I haven’t reviewing any liquid lipstick/lip matte before (eventho I only have two), but anyway I want to give review about the products.

image

The first one I have is The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in shade Committed. I got this around 16-17 dollars.

The second one is a local brand LT Pro Long Lasting Matte Lip Cream in shade number 5. I got this as a birthday gift from my sister.
As I knew the price is around 9 dollars.

image

The Balm have a creamy texture and will set into a matte finish after around 15 seconds (more or less).
The scent is a sweet cookie or candy (not sure, but it is sweet).

Pigmentation is really good, I use it in a thin layer, that works better for my dry lips.
I put a first thin layer, press my lips together and then blot it with tissue, repeat the second layer, press my lips together and blot again with tissue, and then let it dry and set into a matte finish.
This will create a better and smoother surface thin layer.

Staying power is quite good if it’s dealing with water, but if it’s oily food then it might fading (remember, makeup remover usually have an oil too to remove waterproof make up, right?).

image

Sorry for the veins. I don’t why it’s that obvious (my friends said I’m quite “transparent” 😑:?)

LT Pro have more powdery texture rather than creamy. The scent is kinda sweet but not too sweet either. It set into a matte finish quite fast, less than 10 seconds I guess. It feels like a different result on lips for a liquid lip colour, I’ve tried some from other brands too (but it’s my friend’s stuff 😄), and most of them have a similar texture with the balm, while this one is more powdery, even when I touch it with my finger, it feels literally powdery but thin layers, doesn’t feel too thick or heavy.

Pigmentation is quite good, usually lighter colour have a bad pigmentation while this one is quite pigmented, it also good a base colour before putting on a bold colour.

Staying power is so so in my opinion, but we can always do touch up, right?

Overall, I love these two, both when I wear it alone or mix it with another colour or another product.
That’s all for my quick review.
Hope you guys find it useful.

Innisfree Olive Real Essential Oil EX

Hello guys… 🙋

Been a long time. I’m back with skin care review, I’ve been using this for several months, it’s been around 8 months, wow it last quite a long time for a 30ml size.

It’s Innisfree face oil. As I knew they do have some variant but I wanted to try the Olive Real Essential Oil first instead of Green Tea Seed Oil, the other face oil is Soybean Oil.

image

The packaging is a glass bottle with pipette like most of face oil or serum packaging.
It is convenient to use, but not to bring with while travelling.

image

I usually use 2-3 drops in the evening, sometimes in the morning too when my skin feels more dry than usual (I’m dry to normal skin).

Texture is quite light, easy to absorb even before putting on make up. Sometimes I mixed it with my cream moisturizer or with my foundation to get a more glowy and moisturized look.

image

image

The smell a bit annoy me and not my favourite. I don’t know what Olive’s scent should be, but this is smells like Citrus.
The smell dissapear tho after some seconds, but still, not my fave.

When I first get my hand on this , I feel like “30ml, I think I will use it up quite fast”, but apparently this is still last after 8 months of use, and I still have a quarter left.

The price around 30 dollars, if it last for 10 months then it will be like around 3 dollars a month.

I like what it did to my skin on moisturizing a little longer and makes my skin look healthier and plump in the next morning.
It also doesn’t break me out, just remember guys, do not use it too much, 2-3 drops is enough ☺👍.

I want to try the soybean face oil. It’s on my wish list now.

That’s all for my quick review, hope you guys find it useful.
Thank you for reading.

L’oreal Mat Magique BB Essence

Hello again.
I almost forgot about this product. I wonder about this product because the wand is in unique shape, but to me apparently it became a bad thing.
Here’s the look :

image

It is quite small, but made of glass so it’s heavier than BB or CC cream packaging.

image

Here’s the wand, pointy wand, but the problem is the foundation itself is very liquidy, and I can’t get enough amount if I use the wand, I ended up have to pour it anyway.

image

Shake the bottle before using it, it’s a transparent liquid at the top and the foundation underneath.
Once it set, it turn out to be powdery finish.

image

For dry skin, it’s not that moisturizing, and I have to blend it immediately before it sets on my skin.

Sheer coverage, it feels lightweight for everyday use but unfortunately it makes me got a breakout.

That’s all for my short review, hope you guys find it useful.

Foreo Luna Mini 2 Midnight.

A few months ago, I finally decided to get one of Foreo. When I check Sephora store I saw this Foreo Luna Mini 2 and black colour is available. Unfortunately this one is not on sale :(.

image

Anyway, here’s what I thought about this cleansing tool. I know this thing is not cheap, I can get a cellphone with the same price (even my phone is cheaper than my Foreo!! 😅).

This thing cost me around $200. I got a Luna Mini 2 inside a transparent plastic case. Luna mini version not include box, unlike the Luna or Luna 2.
USB Cable right underneath the Luna inside a box with manual book and guarantee card.

image

The size is medium/average, not too big like Foreo Luna and not too small like Foreo Go/Play.

Luna Mini 2 have option for the vibration, it has 8 level of vibration’s power as I remember, but I usually use the Lowest.
The previous version, Luna Mini only have on and off power button, without + and – button.

image

image

It is made of silicone including the bristles, no replacement brush head needed. Luna Mini 2 for all skin type.
Larger area with smaller bristles for all over the face, usually for dry to normal skin.
Smaller area with larger/biggest bristles at the top for around the nose or big pores.
Bigger bristles at the back for oily part of the face, or for oily skin.

image

Serial numbers at the bottom, and the USB cable. I use my cellphone adapter to charge this. When it’s charged, the LED lamp at down below the product will blinking, and it stop blinking when the battery is fully charged.

image

I put the cable inside the plastic case, I don’t want it to be “gone somewhere” just because I forgot where I put it. I don’t know where to buy the USB cable IF maybe/just in case the cable is broken, or lost, or something else. I don’t think Sephora sell it separately.

image

I usually use it twice a week, to remove the left over make up and dead skin cell without too much exfoliate the skin. I read the information from many source that Foreo is also a soft exfoliating tools.

I try my best not to push Foreo too hard on my face, I just make the Foreo have a contact with my face and then move it around all over the face.

Do it in section, I started with my right cheek first, when I feel the “sudden-quick-stop” of the vibration  (before it’s continue to vibrating again), that’s a signal to move to another section of the face.

When 3 times short vibrations is coming, it means the end of the process.
As I remember it’s divided for 4 sections. After 3 time short vibrations I turn it off, and then turn it on again because I usually haven’t work on my nose area.
Sometimes I use it on my neck too.

Around the forehead, the vibration somehow feels harder, maybe because less fat/meat there. 😄
If you have migrain or similar symptoms, be careful while doing the forehead area.

Overall I like this cleansing tools, eventhough I want the Luna 2 Purple/Lavender too which have a softer bristles for sensitive skin, but it is so PRICEY!! :'(😭

That’s all for my review, hope you guys find it useful.

Catrice Prime & Fine + Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder

Back again guys!! Now with make up named Catrice. I saw this on Guardian (again), I thought the price would be similar with Maybelline/Revlon/Wet n Wild, but apparently this is CHEAPER!! 😨😱

I tried SO HARD not to do sweepstakes, hahaha. 😄😄

image

I decided to buy primer and bronzer, I actually want to try two primers, the white and green, but the green one is sold out :twisted:.

image

I like the packaging, sleek slim tube with twist cap. Easy to bring because it’s not bulky or heavy, and it’s 30ml, not 15ml or 20ml.

Texture is like a lotion, no smell, feels moist on skin and easy to spread.

Eventhough the colour is white, but it turns into a transparent. I don’t find this primer helps control the oil, but it’s quite good keep the make up last a little longer.

image

image

Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder in Darker Skin. I choose the darker one because the lighter one looks too soft and light (Think of it, I can use that one as a face powder 😄).

This bronzer is matte, brown without too orangey or reddish or greyish. It’s warm tone.

image

Texture is not powdery, but quite pigmented, I use duo fibre brush or synthetic fluffy brush to apply.

It has smell and quite noticable, if you don’t like smell on beauty products, you might a bit bothered by this.

I like the result, it’s buildable and looks natural on skin.

image

That’s all for my review, hope you guys find it useful.

Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance Ultimate Serum

Hello again. Skin care review again. I saw this cute serum of Garnier at Guardian. I don’t even know yet wether this product suits my skin or not, I just want to buy it because the appearance is cute!
Hahaha, I know, sounds so lame 😜.

image

It has a lifting pump (?), usually the pump using straw inside, but this type is the bottom keep going up when we use it. One pump is enough for all over the face and neck.

image

The serum’s colour is sakura pink with white pearls. I prefer blend it on my fingers before apply it to my face.

Texture is very light jelly-feel-kinda-thing. It’s easy to spread, the scent also soft, I don’t know if it’s a sakura’s scent or not because I’ve never smell it before 😙.

It doesn’t break me out too.
