Pore Cleansing Day πŸ’¦
Sorry for being mia! My exams just ended so I will have a couple days until my new semester starts πŸ˜ͺ
.
I decided to do @fiddysnails blackhead routine again (I love it so much, please give it a try!) and ended my routine with my regular skincare routine. As you can see, I love brightening products and am fighting my PIH at the moment 😣 .
Skincare routine
🌸 Shiseido Perfect Gel
🌸 Cosrx BHA Power Liquid (20-30min)
🌸 Innisfree Volcanic Pore Clay Mask (10-15min.)
🌸 Muji Sensitive Oil Cleanser (leave on for 10-15min then massage a couple minutes)
🌸 Hatomugi Skin Conditioner
🌸 Melano CC Essence
🌸 Hadalabo Arbutin Rich Lotion
🌸 Hope Girl Bee Venom Cream .
So many steps haha. I'm usually following a minimalistic skincare routine. My face felt so clean and hydrated afterwards haha
New lenses ❀ I really started to like circle lenses again and @loveshoppingholics was kind enough to sponsor me two circle lens pairs of my choice and this super cute duck case. I can't be happier about it πŸ₯πŸ’•
. .
I picked the Amaze Gray and Amaze Brown lenses. They seem to lighten up your eyes super naturally. Photos will be posted soon!
.
They were also kind enough to sponsor a giveaway for my followers. I will post the details with the review, stay tuned! 😊
Currently in Amsterdam, Netherlands! πŸ‡³πŸ‡± Love all those cozy coffee shops around the canals of Amsterdam. I feel like its such a nice city to shop at if you have lots of money on your hands, they really have lots of fancy things haha.
.
I didn't buy any cosmetics but so much alpaca merchandise, can't believe how many alpaca themed things they have! πŸ˜†
.
The Mannekinpis fries place was pretty disappointing to me though. I honestly don't think it's that special except that the fries are huge and that they have some special sauces 😁
.

The fastfood wall is pretty cool! You have to throw in some coins and it will give you warm burgers or snacks. They taste pretty nice too! Definitely, give it a try if you happen to be here haha 😁
My little skincare routine now πŸ’§ I'm desperately trying to get rid of my PIH and eye bags so I recently introduced the Melano CC essence to my routine. I'm pretty impatient when it comes to PIH, only been using it for a couple days. I also heard its important to use sunscreen when using vitamin C, maybe you can't really call it β€œskincareβ€œ though haha πŸ˜‚
.
❀ Senka Perfect Gel
❀ Hada Labo Arbutin Lotion
❀ Melano CC Essence
❀ Hope Girl Bee Venom Cream
❀ Biore Aqua Rich Essence
.

Did anyone have good results with the melano cc essence? How long did it take or any other product recommendations for PIH? πŸ˜”
Canmake Glow Fleur Cheeks 🌹
Here are the swatches of both blushes! .
.
09 Burgundy Fleur
The lighter shades look a little chalky on the swatches but they aren't in rl, they have tiny little gold shimmers in it. The two darker shades have bigger gold shimmers in it, it's so pretty omg. I probably like this one more πŸ’ž
.
05 Wedding Fleur
Love this one too though haha, the swatches look chalky and matte but they are more on the shimmery side and have this really subtle glow in rl. Shimmers are not as big as in the Burgundy Fleur one though. It's so hard to capture shimmer/glitters on photos, sorry! πŸ˜” .
@ohmy_stellar @just_an_oily_girl @sparklingwineandskin @justine_cammisa ❀
I'm really into @canmaketokyo right now. I love their glow fleur cheeks blushes soso much! ❀
.
They recently released the burgundy blush as a limited edition 2018 product and I couldn't resist not getting it. I love burgundy/rose makeup so much and since I don't own a blush in that color, I feel like I just had to get it haha.
.
I might post some swatches on ig, if anyone's interested~ 😊
Happy Chinese New Year πŸŽ† I hope you all had a lovely day with your family or friends ❀ Leaving this sheet mask from @jayjuncos  and my red lucky bags here πŸ’ΈπŸ˜Š
Today's skincare routine ❀
My very minimalistic skincare routine haha πŸ˜… I'm still trying out the lotion and azelaic acid cream, I've been using the cream from @deciem only on areas with PIH and irritations to see the effects better (+ it stings my skin so much 😣)
.
Skincare routine πŸ’¦
β™‘ Hada Labo Gokujyun Cleanser
β™‘ Hada Labo Arbutin Lotion
β™‘ The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension
β™‘ Hope Girl Honey Venom Cream .
The little soap on the photo is a mangosteen from my vacation in Bangkok, the scent is so nice!!! I always have it on my makeup drawers πŸ˜πŸ’ž
I'm currently trying out the arbutin lotion from @hadalabotokyo and the Azelaic Acid Suspension from @deciem which I got a while ago from my cousin 😊
.
First impression of the Hada Labo lotion is pretty good! When I pad in a light layer, my skin feels pretty moisturized and soft but whenever I try to soak them in these thin cotton pads to use it as lotion mask for 10-15min., my skin starts to itch 😭 I didn't notice a significant brightening effect so far, the hatomugi skin conditioner brightens up my complexion much more tbh!
.
Whenever I apply the Azelaic Acid Suspension, I start to feel a tingly/ burning sensation on my skin and after some time my skin feels velvety smooth (might be because of silicon?). I hope it will help with my PIH and skin texture. Didn't notice any results yet but will continue to use it until it's empty and report back haha 😁
.
Sorry for being mia again, I realized that I'm actually running out of post ideas and need to study for my exams πŸ˜”
.
Has anyone else tried any of these products? β™₯

Good Luck to everyone!!! πŸ€
My first impression of the Last Auto Gel Liners from @bbia.official is not very good, I was honestly a little disappointedπŸ˜”
.
They didn't go on smoothly at all and felt very rough, the liner was literally dragging my eyelid and I had to hold it to get an OK line. It felt like I was fighting in a battle when I was just trying to line my eyes πŸ˜‚ At the end I just used another eyeliner. I was thinking that maybe I also got a bad batch because the chocolate mousse one was less hard than the dark brown one πŸ˜”
.
Staying power was pretty good! Stayed on my lids all day long and is waterproof. Easy to remove with an oil cleanser tho, I have nothing to complain about in that point πŸ‘
.
Has anyone else tried them and can tell me if they had similar issues with the eyeliner texture?
motd πŸ’„
