Etude house haul

Etude house is a south korean cosmetic company founded in 1966, based in Seoul, Korea. It has more than 200 branches all over the world, including 2 branches in the middle east, in Dubai and Kuwait. Etude means study or practice in french.

korean beauty standards have become a noted feature in the makeup industry. Korean beauty prioritizes a slim pale face, V shaped jaw line, small lips, straight eyebrows, flawless skin & larger eyes.

A big focus of korean skin care is light flawless skin, in order to achieve a perfectly even skin tone, korean women often do extensive routines including: makeup remover, double cleanser (combined oil and water based), exfoliator, toner, essence (hydrating concentrate), treatments (booster, serum, ampoules) , sheet masks, eye cream, moisturizer and sun screen.

Recent korean trends:

People in korea are moving away from flashy false lashes toward a low key natural lash look by simply curling their natural lashes and applying an even coat of mascara.

Velvety matte lips in fun vibrant colors are trendy nowadays, especially pink and coral shades.

Koreans also use corals not only as lipsticks but as eyeshadows & blush as well.

When applying blush koreans are focusing on applying it on the apple of the cheeks for a more youthful look.

 

I will share with you some of the Etude house products that i really liked and i highly recommend for you to try yourselves. these products actually does the effects it claimed, some of it comes in really cute packaging.

Summer time skin care routine

Hey beauties. I want to share with you a skin care routine that i am following since the beginning of April. I highly recommend this routine, it left my skin amazing, glowing and free from breakouts.

I start by cleaning the makeup off my face by Cetaphil gentle makeup removing wipes

IMG_0213

let me tell you a trick, for easier clean face i put some liquid makeup remover on the wipe

IMG_0211

Then i wash my face with cetaphil daily facial cleanser. Mild yet very effective cleanser. One of the best i have tried.

IMG_0212.jpg

I apply the cleanser and rub it around my face in circular motion using the Braun face cleansing brush. It is a great exfoliater. Remember to change the brush head itself very 3 months.

Finally i hydrate my face using the cetaphil moisturizing lotion for the night time,

Or the one with SPF 50 for the day time.

I got the cetaphil products from Boots Pharmacy. You can invest you money into one of these facial cleasing brushes, they are really doing the trick. I got mine as an offer when i bought the silkepil 9 epilator. i really liked it. it is suitable for daily use.

Bath and body works body nourishing oils, review

Are you having a bad day? Are you having a trouble falling asleep? Are you looking for relaxation? Need a boost of your mood or your sense of well being? Well, i have a solution for you. It is called aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy uses plant materials and aromatic plant oils for improving physical and psychological well being. There a different methods of application of essential oils: topical application, massages, inhalation, or water immersion.

In this review i will be focising on Bath and Body works nourshing body oils applied through massaging.

All of the massage oils are light weighted, quick absorbing, nourishing and softening the skin. This is so convenient, everybody appreciate hydrated nourished skin without feeling and looking greasy.

All of them have a subtle scent. This is actually perfect for me, i do not like intense aromas, specially when it comes to a product that i will be applying on my skin.

And each of them claims a certain effect and purpose.
