Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nails in #6 Angel's Kiss Swatch

I've been feeling so stressed out lately with my personal life that I had totally ignored myself. I forgo almost all of my beauty routines - seriously I don't even remember to put on my moisturiser :( which is really bad. Ah well I'm taking time off from everything and pamper myself today!!! First up is manicure. I decided to put on something sparkly and bling!!!!

and I chose - Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nails in #6 Angel's Kiss.


 There's 3x 4ml bottles in the packaging:

 from the left: (Middle) Angel Silver, (Base) Blingbling white and  (Top) Snow Flower Silver 

the end result:


I feel so princessy right now. Definitely a good choice to uplift my mood!!!! What do you think? This is a good colour or should I have chosen Etude House's #5 Princess Marry?

XOXO,

WILD FERNS New Zealand Conditioning Hand Creme in Manuka Honey review

Time for another hand cream review!!! Its the WILD FERNS New Zealand Conditioning Hand Creme in Manuka Honey that was given in January 2013 Wonderbox. Although its only 30ml but we'll see how long it can last ^o^. My ESSENCE 24h Hand Moisture Balm  lasted me for about 3 months. Not bad for its size coz I practically dip both my hands in hand cream to keep it hydrated.

The hand creme contains pure Active Manuka AAh 650+ (Active Antibacterial Antioxidant Honey 650+) with blended with Prosina (hydrolysed Keratin derived from New Zealand's sheeps wool), Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Sweet Almond Oil to soothe and repair rough, dry and damaged hands.

Besides that, this combination is known to improve the structure and strengthens your nails whilst improving hydration and elasticity of your cuticles + skin.

Costs: RM 69.00/ 85ml


Texture:


The cream is really thick and feels a tad bit oily when you first put it on but don't worry, it doesn't leave any oily film on your hand. Though the Manuka honey scent is really strong, to a point that I feel a bit overwhelmed by it. (I can't stand strong scents - I'd have this gagging thing going on and prolonged dizziness)

* I still think the photo on the right looks like some worm spitting on my hand. Hadn't notice it on the camera until I started editing :( *

Before and After Pics:




I just had to put the photos in extra large just to show you how dry my hands can be when I'm in an enclosed place with air-condition.

Likes:
1. Its really good and hydrating. Plus I can see instant improvements on my cuticles and skin.
2. No oily film.
3. The texture is not runny and just nice.

Dislikes:
1. There are times when I find the Manuka Honey scent too strong but thats just me. Don't get me wrong, I love the scent, its exactly like honey and its sweet!!!

Well that's my current staple in the office at the moment. What's your favourite hand cream?

Love,

Etude House Nail Polish Remover #2 Extra Power (Great for glitter nail polish)

Lately, I have been posting a lot of glitter nail polish swatches on my blog and my friends and family always ask me the same question - I love glitter nail polish but how do you remove them EFFECTIVELY without the pain and hassle!!!!

Photo source from : BlackGirlLongHair.com

Well I agree, glitter nail polish is a pain in the a***. I had always thought why would people bother to create such beautiful nail polish but doesn't develop a nail polish remover for it until I went shopping in Etude House. I found my solution with Etude House Nail Polish Remover #2 Extra Power!!!


They have 2 types of nail polish remover in the shop, just look for the one in blue @ with a No. 2 at the back of the bottle.


For the sake of people who don't know how to use nail polish remover, here's a simple tutorial just for you:

I've painted my nails in different glitter nail polishes - you can check out the swatches below:



The 3 simple steps in removing your glitter nail polish in 1 swipe ^o^ (nope i'm not exaggerating, its really EXTRA strong):

1. Wet your cotton and put it on your nail. 
2. Apply some pressure over the top of the cotton and let it soak for a while
3. Remove the nail polish by pushing it outwards and in 1 swipe your nail polish is removed!!!

Here's some before and after photos (removing with 1 swipe):




The end result:



This is currently one of the best nail polish remover that I had ever owned ^o^

* ehem just for clarification - 1 bottle costs around RM 12.90 and please don't overuse the nail polish remover. The main reason why it can remove glitter nail polish effectively is because of the acetone compound in the product itself. *

Love,

Etude House If Story Nail Kit I: #01 Halloween Witch swatch

Currently i'm still obsessed with Etude House's glitter nail polish, I just can't get enough of it and I haven't finish trying all the nail polish I had bought from my last haul!!!!

This is one of the If Story Nail Kit I that I had chosen, its a halloween themed story and each nail kit comes with 2 colours. The box is just toooo cute and you won't even feel that this witch will be causing you any harm.


Today's swatch will be on #01 Halloween Witch. Its a purple jelly based glitter nail polish with silver hexagons, orange squares and small glitters etc.


I've put 2 swatch on my nail. You can do with 1 swatch but the colour looks deeper and makes it sooo much more mysterious. It feels like i'm staring into the milky way looking for a long lost galaxy.

Don't you think it looks very similar to the Mandel's Angel Nebula (without the orange squares) ^o^ 


XOXO,

Etude House Magic Enzyme Pack Peeling (Nutrient Rich Yogurt Gommage Peel) review

Recently I've been stocking up a lot on Etude House products. There's just so many different promotions happening at the same time (buy 1 free 1, 50% for weekends etc).  Curious about what I bought? You can have a look at my previous hauls HERE and HERE.  You can also have a look at the reviews that I've posted on their various products: My Dear Jelly Lips Talk, Nail Polishes, Cleansing Foam, Wash Off Mask .

Today’s review is all about this bottle of Magic Enzyme Pack Peeling (Nutrient Rich Yogurt Gommage Peel) from Etude House. 


1 bottle of the Magic Enzyme Pack Peeling = 115ml and cost around RM 65.90. The bottle is actually made out of glass and its in my favourite colour - lilac ^o^ Maybe I should turn the bottle into a home d├ęcor item once I'm done with the product. What do you think?


The product is in liquid form. Its texture is very light, its not too runny, creamy or sticky. I'd love to say it smells like yogurt but nah - its all chemical + yogurt.
Here's the 3 simple steps to removing oil, dirt and dead skin cells effectively with Etude House Magic Enzyme Pack Peeling (Nutrient Rich Yogurt Gommage):
1. Put sufficient amount of product on your face or whichever part that you want to remove your dead skin cells.
2. When you feel the product is half dry (don't worry it only takes around 1 minute to dry if you did step 1 right), start rubbing lightly. You will have "eraser bits" forming over your skin.
3. Cleanse with water.
Ta-daa, now you have super smooth, clean and clearer skin ^o^. Use twice a week!!!

Pros:
1. It forms the rubber bits easily and removes oil, dirt and dead skin cells at the same time. You can see that my hand doesn't "shine" as much after rubbin
2. 1 bottle can really last you for very long - save on $$$$. 
3. It brightens your skin 

Cons:
Well doesn't have any unless you left the product on for too long and it dries up before you rub the dirt off. I think that is also why some people find it hard to use this particular products.

Honestly I think this product is a keeper. I'm soo in love with it at the moment. I'm even using it for my feet (Yeah, my main aim of getting this product was to remove dead skin cells from my feet because I walk a lot and well I just think that my feet needs a good scrubbin' and rubbin' to be baby smooth again ^o^).

*Shout Out* - Sha, if you want to try the product, let me know so i'll bring it to you :P

Love,
