Review: NOW Solutions European Clay Powder + NOW Essential Oils Tea Tree Oil


The NOW Solutions European Clay Powder is 100% natural and pure. You can create a clay mask by mixing it with water, and as optional, add essential oil that suits your skin needs.

Tea tree oil is good for oily, acne and combination skin.
Jojoba oil or/and lavender oil for dry and mature skin.

It says that you should leave the mask on for 15-20minutes. But from my experience, you shouldn’t let the mask to fully dry. Wait until the clay mask is about 80-90% then go ahead and rinse off. Because if you leave it on until it has completely dry out, it’d be a nightmare to rinse off and it’d feels like your skin is cracking.

I don’t recommend using too much clay powder either. The clay powder is really, really strong. The first time I used it, I put too much clay powder and rinsed it off when it was harden and dry. I almost cry when I tried to wash it off. It was so painful and scary. I thought my skin was cracking or bleeding.


My face was hot red and sensitive afterwards, Thank Goodness it got better the next day. Lesson learned! Always put more water than clay powder – always, always, always…

The NOW Solutions European Clay Powder is a powerful facial detox. It helps draw out impurities from the pores, decreasing pore size and improve your skin tone over time. I noticed that the clay mask was also exfoliating my skin a little.

I really love this product, and it’s so affordable too, only $5.34 at iHerb.

I usually mix the clay powder with the NOW tea tree oil to create my detox mask, I like the tingling sensation that I get from it. The 6 oz. (170g) jar is plenty, I have this for almost a year now and I still have a lot left. I don’t use it as much in the winter like I’ve been using it lately. I do the clay mask 1-2 times a week.

However, I wish that it’d have a measuring spoon coming with it.

The NOW Essential Oils tea tree oil has also been great with many of my DIY masks and oil blends. It’s 100% pure and effective. I don’t have much to say about it, because I think it works like how it supposed to.

If you have oily skin or gets breakout easily, this mask will help you tackle those problems.

Review & Swatch: BareMinerals Ready SPF20 Foundation in R270


I bought the bareMinerals Ready SPF 20 Foundation mainly because it has high sun protection, I thought it’d be great for summer.

This product was challenging to work with because it took some time to blend and get it to look natural – well, somewhat natural looking.

I read that some people loved using the bareMinerals Ready foundation with a dense makeup brush. So I tried to apply it with the Real Techniques buffing brush a couple times, and my makeup never looked so thick and cakey. It looked awful.

Next, I switch to using it with my big powder brush which turned out to be the best option for the foundation. I think, if you have a stippling brush, that would work too with this type of foundation.

To be honest, this is my least favorite foundation I have ever tried. It seriously is far away from glowing and natural looking. It’s going against all my principles of how I like my makeup to look like.

Forget about dewy finish.
Forget about natural looking makeup.

Every time I applied this foundation on my face, I could see that it just sat on top of my skin. And blending was difficult and time consuming and the finish was still powdery – so yes, it has a matte finish.

After 10 hours of wearing the bareMinerals, it looked less cakey but I could still see the foundation hadn’t really blend with my skin natural oil, so it’d look natural and dewy. Nope, no such thing happened.

The shade that I got is R270 Golden Medium, which is lighter and yellower than I expected. I don’t mind the yellow undertone since I am warm-toned.

I usually wouldn’t mind if the foundation is a shade lighter, because I can always apply bronzer afterwards. But putting powder on top of another powder product is too much for me, it looked cakey and too powdery.

BareMinerals Ready SPF20 foundation is buildable, so you can go from medium to almost full coverage. The matte, black, slim compact is convenient to carry in your makeup bag but gets dirty really quickly.

Though, looking back at these photos – I have to admit that the foundation does photograph well.

Review: Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner


Another drugstore favorite!

The Thayer Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera toner is the gentlest thing – there’s that word again :D – I totally get why people love it so much.

It doesn’t matter dry or oily skin, I think it will works for you.

The big 12 oz. (355ml) lasted almost 3 months for me, I think it might sounds like not long enough. But I use a lot of toner, I love to prep my skin first with toning before applying other skin care products.

The witch hazel in the toner, wasn’t doing anything for me because my skin did breakout a little in that time, so it wasn’t able to prevent or reduce pimples.

The formula is clear colored, doesn’t leave any residue on the skin and has a soft rose and aloe vera fragrance. It’s an alcohol free toner, therefore doesn’t aggravate the skin.

At the moment, I’m testing out other toners but if my skin feels sensitive or looks red, I’d go back to this for a day or two, it’ll help calm and sooth my skin and get it back to normal. It’s a simple, and reliable product and I know my skin likes it.

Review & Swatch: Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion in No. 25



Sulwhasoo is a Korean high-end cosmetic brand that has dominated Asian beauty market for years. The idea of cushion foundation was unknown to me, yet fascinating.

Because I’m trying to be mindful with my spending right now, I only purchased the refill :P I already know that I don’t need to carry it around, so the compact isn’t a must anyway.

My experience with the Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion has been very pleasant.

The foundation feels feather light, hydrating and leaves the skin a dewy finish. It never fails to make my skin look radiant and healthy.

It has a nice, cooling effect the moment that it touches your skin but fades away quickly. I’ve never experienced anything like this before, so it was mind boggling to me. I thought that was pretty cool and from what I heard, all cushion foundations should do this.

I always apply the foundation with the puff that came with it, which works great with the foundation. I used tapping motion and then blend it out with wiping motion. I’ve find that I don’t really need to work hard to achieve the seamless look, the foundation just melts on your skin. Ah, beautiful!

The Evenfair Perfecting Cushion evens out my skin tone, has almost a medium coverage and is also long-lasting. It lasted over 10 hours on my skin, but some oiliness did come through, mainly on the t-zone. Most importantly, it kept my skin moisturized all day – no flakiness, baby. Note: finishing powder and concealer are still needed.

I don’t know how to describe the fragrance to you, but it smells very nice, sophisticated and has a slight ginseng/herbal smell to it, very settle. I think that’s part of Sulwhasoo’s signature scent.

I probably will purchase the full package, since I really enjoy using the Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion. The package should include 2 refills, 2 puffs and the compact. The compact is really pretty.

They have 4 shades and I picked up the darkest shade which is no. 25 Deep Beige, and it’s a perfect match for me at the moment. If I’m going to repurchase it again (fall/winter time), I think I need to go a shade lighter.

I think the Sulwhasoo cushion foundation is great for normal, dry and combination skin. The dewiness can be a problem for oily skin.

Review & Swatch: MAC Saint Germain Lipstick


I had my doubts before I purchased the Saint Germain lipstick. The color was honestly a bit plastic looking and too cool for my complexion. But then I thought I might get away with it, if I top it off with the Saint Germain lipglass. Hoping that it might softens the color on me. Well, I let you be the judge of this.

I had so much fun and trouble taking pictures of this lipstick! The lipstick kept changing color just from the tiniest change of lightings. From the different lighting and to how close I was holding the camera, made the world of difference. If the camera was too close, Saint Germain turned into this funky purple pink color. If the camera was too far, the color changed into this warm rosy pink, which looked more flattering on me for sure. Took a while for me to capture this beauty in it’s own true color.










Texture wise, it’s very creamy. Saint Germain went on my lips smoothly, it felt very soft. But the softness of this is why I dislike this kind of texture, because it kept settling into the creases and lines on my lips. My lips looked chapped and dry in a weird way.

For me, the Saint Germain lipstick is way too cool against my warmer skin tone. I do like it more when pairing it with the same lipglass. Overall, this isn’t my top favorite shade neither it’s lasting power impresses me.

Review: It’s Skin 잇츠스킨 Prestige D’Escargot


What happened was after receiving the long waited package from Gmarket, I started to use the products right away. The Prestige Creme Ginseng looked so pretty, I didn’t want to open it yet. So I started with the gift set and It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Effector Essence VC. I used the serum along with the Prestige Tonique D’Escargot, Lotion D’Escargot and the Prestige Creme D’Escargot.

After using the products about a week, suddenly one day my skin had a strong allergy reaction. At the time I was using too many new products, I couldn’t tell what causes the reaction. I stop using everything immediately and had to treat my skin with cortisone for a couple days. To clarify, I’m not allergic to any ingredient in skin care – well, not that I know of and never had an allergy reaction from any cosmetic or skin care products. This is my very first time and I had tried many products before.

The allergy reaction caused my skin to have tiny little red bumps all over my face, the worst were around my eye areas. My skin was also stinging and had flaky skin, especially under my eyes. My lids seemed to be puffier, heavier than usual. That morning I believed I used the Power 10 Formula Essence VC, Prestige Tonique, Prestige Lotion and a tiny bit of Prestige Creme. During the day I didn’t notice anything special on my face. After coming home from work, I cleansed my face like usual and noticed immediately that my skin wasn’t as smooth. It felt really tight and there were some tiny bumps developing around my eyes.

A couple hours later I saw the horror on my face from the mirror. From the eye areas down, my face was filled with tiny little red bumps, it was stinging to the point it was sensitive to the touch. I knew right away it was the new products that I been using.













With the help of cortisone, my skin healed quickly after a few days just using it. A week later, I went back to test the Prestige products again. This time only one by one. For my sad conclusion, all 3 products from Prestige D’Escargot were the cause of the allergy.

One thing I like to mention, that me and my mom were using Prestige products. We both agreed that Prestige did an amazing job of tightening the skin. I felt my skin tightens up every time I used the Prestige Creme D’Escargot. I didn’t got that effect with the Tonique and Lotion alone. My mom tried some samples of Prestige Creme Ginseng and totally loves it. Her skin didn’t react to it at all. After that I also gave her the Prestige Creme D’Escargot to try out. From my mom’s words, she didn’t like it as much as the Ginseng version.

The Prestige D’Escargot set did came with a BB cream which I am planning to try out. But I want to wait for my skin to fully recover and will be testing a small area on my face or some area close my face first. I’m going to be doing the same thing with the Prestige Creme Ginseng D’Escargot too. Will update you guys later!
