Etude House HA Facial Cleanser

Hello lovelies, this week I would like to share on a cleanser that I have tried and tested for like 1 or 2 months plus... This post has been sitting in my draft for quite some time.

Let's jump right in ^^

Ta-daaa

Photo credits to my big sister coz I cannot find mine at the moment.
Anyway, this is a cream type of cleanser that is easy to lather. ^^ BUT, continuing reading below to know what we think ^^

Why buy?
It was on some BUY 1 FREE 1 promotion when we walked pass the store while shopping in Palm Mall, Seremban. Plus it says Hyaluronic Acid on the packaging which means it should provide enough moisture for my slightly dry skin (only from time to time I will have dry skin, lol).

Progress on usage?
It was good for the first week when using it. Skin feels so clean and the smell is nice, slightly tight as the time progress tho. Cannot really describe it but it was refreshing and not overwhelming :)
So I have decided to continue with it.
After a month plus or two of almost continuous usage of this product, my face has become rather dry. There were bumps like thing and yes I don't understand why....it is not supposed to be dry right since there is HA in it.... ×.×

My nose, cheeks, & lips are more frequently dry and patchy.

So yeah, it is now sitting somewhere on the desk collecting dust.

Pros:
Nice refreshing smell
Easy to lather
Easy to control amount required

Cons:
Drying for my skin
Too large thus not travel friendly
It is not easily lathered when I have already dispensed a small amount into travel friendly jars. >.< or did I use too less thus I cannot lather it like how I did effortlessly when dispensing it right from the tube?

Repurchase:
No. It is not hydrating enough for my skin. Just found one facial cleanser that I have been enjoying this one month plus ^^

Suitable for who?
Maybe oily skin? I don't know. Coz' as a combination skin like mine is already drying, and my sister with dry skin..some more la terrible (This is her experience of using it, here) !! If you would like to try this product, go ahead, 'coz what don't work for our skin may work for you! Good luck dearies! ^^

Please share with me your experience when using this Etude House HA Facial Cleanser ^^

Have a good day ;)

Q10 Anti Aging Jelly Mask ANNIE’s WAY

First try of this brand that I have and still do adore very much was on 15072014.

I've tried their jelly mask as well as those sheet mask. I love them much but I cannot deny that I definitely do prefer the tub mask much much more.
About the mask, visit here if you need hydration OR here for acne control OR even here for whitening purpose. ^^
As for the jelly mask in tub, have a look at the Aloe Moisturising Jelly Mask and the Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Jelly Mask.

This is how the product look like.


My thought:
When scoop and apply the jelly on my face for the first time, I feel that it is not as “Jelly” or concentrated as the previous tubs that I have tried.
It is kinda diluted and if I have some blobs of it placed on my face, it'll drip. Wtf. So I can only apply it bit by bit.
(Not that impressed with this! >.<")


Sorry for the ugly photo. Just squeezed my forehead area as well as my nose. Love the cooling texture.

As for the effectiveness of the mask, well, brightening effect and hydration definitely played the role. Though not so impressed as the Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Jelly Mask can do equally well too...but the jelly texture of Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Jelly Mask is much thicker and better.

Basically you just need to have the mask on you for 30mins.
(For full directions, do visit this page.)
I was irritated as for the first 10mins of application, my face already felt slightly tight (prolly due to the diluted form of jelly in this tub!!).
Smells like some fruit jelly. Sweet. Not overwhelming. 
Skin is very smooth, moisturising, and brightened <3

Pros:
Fruit jelly scent, not overwhelming.
Smooth skin.
Moisturised.
Brightened.

Cons:
Slightly diluted thus drip occurred.
Slightly hard to remove when washing it off.
Sweet scent is making me hungry. Lol.
So much more expensive compared to the first time when I purchased it.

Repurchase:
No. But will buy the arbutin and HA jelly mask :)
