Gosh i've been purchasing more stuff form Gmarket, my oh my!!
EMS parcel box: this time it wasn't that huge, just a small-ish haul
It is more skin care products and samples................ again! I'm so into skin care ............. sigh. What an expensive hobby.
So what do i have here today?
More sum 37!! the newly released waterfull line's gel cream!
Sum 37 Waterfull: timeless water gel cream. This is newly launched and it is a much lighter version of the earlier waterfull cream. The waterfull cream has also been upgraded but i have yet to purchase those. I'm thinking to finish this first as there are quite large sachets compared to the normal sample size sachets.
The texture is pretty light. I have yet to really fall in love with this one though. It seems it does not plump up my skin as much. But i'll give it longer try before i conclude.
Next up, i've been dying to try some korean pore care serums. So far i've used western ones like :
1. cellnique's sebum gel - it seems to be softening my blackheads but the black and white heads still persists
2. and even the exorbitantly expensive sothy's skin mattifying solution. - this is far too drying and expensive
3. Also tried estee lauder's skin refinisher. - this clogged up my pores! i think it's because of the silicone or some other ingredients. This is also expensive!
What did i purchase:
1. Hera's pore control serum (right on the pic)
2. Sum 37's pore corrector (left on the pic)
I will try these out and let you know the findings. First impressions: i like Sum 37's much better because it is a clear slightly sticky gel like texture that hydrates and plumps. Hera's really mattifies and is slightly drying. But i'm not sure of the effectiveness of each. Gotta give both more time to tell. So far i have no sensitive reaction to both.
And still on my quest for the perfect sunscreen:
1. Charmzone's albatross powder sun spf 41PA++
2. Ohui's newly released: Sun science perfect sunblock red Ex, SPF50 PA+++ waterproof
3. ohui's newly released: sun science perfect sunblock black ex, SPF50PA+++ waterproof
Look out for my post on first impressions of these sun blocks.
More Hera stuff:
Hera's aquabolic balancing water and emulsion. I figured that the aquabolic moisturising (for dry skin) is a little heavy for my combo skin so i decided to try the one for oily/combo skin.
Also, item on right in pic, Hera's white program effector. Hera's whitening line concentrated serum. Unfortunately this gave me bumps and it made my skin itch! how sad :-(
Some mixed samples and purchases:
Erm, I'm not really sure who the man is and what's in the packet. I suspect it's a man's sheet mask. This was a free gift from one of the seller's. I'll have to find a time when my man have some time in his hands to try a sheet mask on before i can rip it open.
Next to the mask, in the jewel floral encasement is history of whoo's secret court lip and cheek balm.
I also purchased history of whoo's whitening sun cream which has a creamy texture with a very light pink tint to it.
The other 4 items on the front of the pic are free samples with history of whoo's hwahyun serum and sum 37's wrinkle corrector. Does anyone know how to use the wrinkle corrector?
A more detailed view of history of whoo's secret court lip and cheek balm:
Isn't the casing simply beautiful?? it makes me feel so royal using it! It's got sparkly bejewelled-like floral gold round casing. The colour of the lip balm is simply gorgeous! i tried some on my lips and the colour is like you just ate some refreshing strawberries! it sure doesn't look like you've got any lipstick on. It looks pure natural healthy looking reddish lips. Have not tried on my cheek though.
