Review: ElishaCoy's Always Triple BB Cream

Hi, sweeties ♡

I'm back with another review. Today, I'm reviewing Alway Triple BB Cream from ElishaCoy. As always, I got a sample from Ebay to try it. a Sample of 4ml lasted me over 4 uses. So, first let's start with the package's indications:

Always Triple BBCream: This multifunctional product protects skin from the sun, improves wrinkles and whitens skin. It can be used as makeup base or foundation. Not only the product naturally tones skin but it also conceals any imperfections. Natural ingredients like royal jelly and caviar help to protect and improve skin.  Contains skin-soothing botanicals (Portulaca oleracea L. and Morus alba Linne) for sensitive skin.
✝ How to use: Apply liberally to all exposed skin at the end of your skin care routine and then gently pat to enhace absorption.
✝ Ingredients: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Titanium Dioxide, Phenyl Trimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Arbutin, Zinc Oxide, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate Hexyl Laurate CaprylicCapric Glycerides, Sorbitan Isostearate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tal, Hexyl Laurate, Butylene Glycol, Dicaprylate/Dicaprate Polysilicone-11, Silica, Beeswax, Dimethicone, Calcium Stearate, Methylparaben, Chlorphenesin, Butylparaben, Propyl-paraben, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caviar Extract Malpighia Punicifolia (Acerola) Fruit extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract Morus Alba Root Extract, Fragance Dimethicone/Methicone Copolymer, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Royal Jelly Extract, Triethoxy-caprylysilane, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499.
So, now that we have all the product's specification, let's head to the review:

▷ Texture: 1/5
I think this is one of the most downs of this BB Cream, its texture is TOO caky. When I put it into my skin, I just wanted to remove it already,. It didn't look o feel natural AT ALL. I think, the only reason why I kept using this BB Cream, was the fact that didn't have any other foundation to use at that time. So, yeah. It felt really bulky to me compared to other BB Creams. Very dissapointed.

▷ Coverage: 4/5
Always Triple BB did a good job covering my blemishes. It covered my mild to medium blemishes and some acne scars. It just doesn't work that well with new pimples, I must say. That's why I put it a 4 out of 5 and not a full score.

▷Oil Control: 4/5
Oil control was good, not the best thing ever, but good. Must say that I only used the BBCream, so the oil control can be improved with a powder or other product. It will be enough if you don't have such an oily skin as I do.

Overall: 3/5
I give this BBCream a three out of five. The fact that the texture was too unnatural is such a NO to me. Plus, the color was to grayish for my skin (as you can see in the picture above). But, I won't deny that it did cover my wrinkles, which surprised me because it should had been otherwiseits due to its caky texture. I guess, its dense texture is because of the SPF content in it (SPF30 PA++). But still, other BBcreams has sun protection and they are not as bulky as this one.

Anyway, I hope you found this review helpful. I would like to hear from you. If you have any question or experience regarding this or other BB Cream, leave it in the comment box below. I will answer them the soonest. Also, I'll be reviewing more BB Creams, so stay tuned.

Review: Elishacoy's Always Nuddy BB 24

Hi, sweeties ♡

It's been a while since my last post, like always lol I wanted to review a couple of BB Creams I recently bought, both are from Elishacoy. The first one I'm reviewing today is Always Nuddy BB 24. I got a sample from ebay, it lasted me for 4 uses. So let's first start with the description given by the package:

✝ Always Nuddy BB 24 is essential source designed to feel and look like your natural skin with a long lasting formula. Natural botanic extracts combined with minimized amount of harsh chemical ingredients to help sooth your skin. Suitable for trouble skin type. Excelent for protecting and improving the look of your skin. Gets absobed quickly without feeling greasy. Long-lasting formula protects your sensitive skin and covers any imperfections for all day long.

How to use: At the end of foundation makeup, use your fingers or a sponge to apply a small amount to your face in the order of cheeks, forehead and chin. Gently pat or blot your face to dry.
Ingredients: Sanghwang mushroom extracts, chamomile, portulas oleracea extracts, sodium hyaluroni acid, peach extracts. 
So now that we have all the products specifications. Let's head to the review:

 Texture: 5/5
The first time I tried this BB Cream, oh my god, It felt so good. Its texture is very smooth and soft. It was so nice to apply on my face. Plus, it didn't feel oily to the contact, just pure smoothness. I loved this BB Cream because of this.

Coverage: 3.5/5
Unfortunately, when the BB Cream or any foundation in general, if the feeling of it is too soft, it won't coverage that much. This BB Cream didn't cover much of my blemishes. And recently I broke out very bad, so I need full coverage, which this bbcream didn't give me. It cover some dark spots and acne scars, tho. But just the mild ones.

Oil Control: 4/5
I tend to have an oily skin so I was wondering whereas this bbcream would help me or not. It actually did. Not perfectly, but it did help me through the whole day. So if you have a combination of skin, this will suit you very well.

Overall: 4/5 
I think this BB Cream would be suitable for people who need from low to medium coverage and have a combination of skin. This BB Cream also has a long-lasting effect. I used it during my university days, so it can easily last you 8 hours (considering I only used the bbcream, not other product such as powder, etc.) I don't think I will repurchase it since I need a high coverage. Plus, I must say that this foundation doesn't count with SPF or any whitening or anti-wrinkle properties. So beware and take that in consideration when buying.

Hope this review helped. I'm gonna review the Always Triple BBCream from ElishaCoy next week, so stay tuned. If you have any question regarding this product or expierence with this bb cream you can post it in the comment box below.

Review: Elishacoy's Vita Capsule Cleanser

Hi, guys! I'm back after a long break lol. Well, today I'm gonna review a new Korean product. This time is Elishacoy's Vita Capsule Cleanser. I tried the 4ml presentation just to give it a try. It lasted me for four uses. Well, let's read the statements of this product, first:

Silky foam eliminates dirt, makeup residue, and unnecessary dead skin cells from skin and 10 different complex vitamin capsules provide nourishment for healthy and refreshed skin tone. “Vita Capsule Cleanser” to cleanse pores and to improve skin complexion. Perfect cleansing! Nourishing cleanser will provide energy and vitality for fatigued skin! 

  • 10 different vitamin complex (Vita Complex – 10) capsules break gently when using the 3D Spin Cleaner. They cleanse and provide vitamins to skin for healthy and vital skin tone. 
  • Contains soap leaf and root extract which creates foam just like soap, to develop silky foam as soft and rich as fresh cream each time the 3D Spin Cleaner rotates. Soft bubbles cover skin to gently eliminate dirt lodged in pores while exfoliating dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and beautiful. 
  • Ceramide 3 and aloe vera leaf juice that protect skin provide moisture to dull and fatigued skin so skin is soft and smooth after cleansing, without the sensation of tightness or dryness. 
  • Rich and soft bubbles like fresh cream lower skin irritation, and provide perfect cleansing even when used along with 3D spin cleaner.

How to use:
Step 1: Wet palms and create lather.
Step 2: Meticulously massage through skin and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

I used it for four times, so I think I kind of know how to use this cleanser. I followed the instruccions but it didn't remove completely my makeup (just BBcream). I still had to  take the rest of makeup with a cotton pad so I wouldn't say it's so effective. Plus it leaved my skin dry. And my skin type is oily so I wouldn't recommend it for dry skin people. But I also have to say that this is recommended to use it with 3D Spin cleaner, so maybe that's way the cleanser didn't work out that much. 

The way to apply is is very easy, and fun to do I must say. It has a little kind of scent, but nothing bothersome. It feels nice when appylying it and like 1 hour later after rinsing. Inmediately after applying it, like I said, kind of dries your skin.

So I give this product:

♔♔  /  ♔♔♔♔♔

I think I will look for some cleanser that will moisturize my face better. Plus it's not so cheap. A bottle of 80ml is 15$ on ebay and I think I can get something better for that price. Anyway, tell me if you found this review helpful or if you have tried this before and how was it. I would love to hear.

Review: Secret Key Snow White Milcky Pack


Today I'm reviewing the Secret Key's Snow White Milcky Pack. So, first let's start with the statements of this product:

 - White milky skin and Brightening Effect: if you using this milcky pack your skin will bright more and will have a moisturizer effect on it. This can be used on face and body.

- Whitening functional material: Niacinamide (whitening functional base material) keeps skin soft and clean. - Skin moisture: It provides intensive hidratation to your skin.

- Try once and get 10 hour duration!: You get 10 hour of effect when using this pack.

- Premium Material and 5 free system: Free of Benzophenoe, Mineral Oil, Phenoxy Ethanol, Parabens and pigments. So it's available for sensitive skin.

Then, how to use it? The instructions in the package are all in Korean, but here is the translation:

- Apply a generous coat over the skin.
- Wait for 2-3 minutes and then rinse with water.
- Dry with a towel with little pads.


The first time I used it, I applied a very light coat in my left hand. And I got a nice result, not that white, but still visible. The second time, I applied a more generous coat in my right hand. But, surprisingly, I got the same result. So as long as you cover your whole skin, the results will be evident.

- It does whiten and it looks normal.
- Leaves a very smooth and moisturized skin.
- Affordable price.
- Last 8 hours, as it says in the package.

- It doesn’t whiten that much. Just slightly and natural.
- Takes lot of time to apply if you want to use it over your whole body.
- It may feel oily after you rinse it.

So, I give this product:
♔♔♔ ♔♔♔♔♔

This is a product that gained lot of fame because of the wonders that it promises. So I kind of expected to get all that wonder in my hands. However, that was not the case. It did whitened my hands but it was not such an amazing result as it promised. Plus, if you you don't apply it evenly, you might get some parts of your skin darker than other. And, the idea of rinse it in every use kind of make me not want to apply it everyday. Since I'm a bussy person, I would only use it in special ocassions, not as a daily basis. And since this thing promise results only when you use it continously, I guess, I can only use it as a one-day retouch.

Hopefully, this review helped you. If you have any question about this product, you can leave it in the comment section below. And also, I would love to hear your own experiences with this cream.

Have a nice day!

Books, books and more books [PIC SPAM]

Last weekend, I attended to the 18th FIL (International Book Fair), which is held in my country every year. So I took some pictures to ilustrate this huge event. The first picture is about my university stand (lol) and the second one is about the Comic stand. There were some peruvian comic-artists selling their own work. Nice.

What kind of surprised me was the fact that there were lots of stands selling manga. Last year, there was only one that sold some Card Captor Sakura and Digimon manga, but this year there were tons of manga everywhere. From Naruto, Bleach, One Piece (the classics) to Eureka Seven, Vampire Knight, Soul Eater, etc, etc!

Wow, if this had happened back when I was 13 I would have made my dad bought me lots lol This year I didn't buy me any manga because I can read them online and because they are very expensive. The only manga I bought was CCS. I got like 10 chapters I guess. And one was signed by the actor-voice of Yukito. Someday I might talk about that.

Also, there were lots of music stands as well. Very expensive, tho. But I think it's worth it if you are a huge fan. Like my uncle who has almost all the dischography of Morrissey. He is really a fan. Anyway, I would have loved buy me some Beatle book to read more about them. I have lot of Beatle's culture because of my mom (she is a Beatlemaniac since her teens). But an original book is always welcomed.

There were also lots of kid's books' stands. I love the one above the most. So unique and the illustration was amazing. It kind of reflected on the price, tho. But I guess, it's due to its originality.

There were also lots of books for sale, like from 5 to 15 soles ($2 to $5). My dad bought lots of those. I was so absorted with the amount of books everywhere that I really couldn't find one that I would love to read. The were so many authors and books that I couldn't really choose. So I kind of focus on appreciate the whole event cause that's what it is. A whole show. Seriously, this was the first time that I got so absorbed with it.

Above you can see some fashion books and more manga. Ah~ If I were rich I would buy most of it. And the fact that these mangas were translated to Spanish was a plus.

There also were some stand for the embassy of different country, such as China, USA, Germany, etc. I went straight to the Japan one (lol). They were displaying several mangas, Japanese culture books and magazines. I stood there for like 2 hours, I guess. So amazing.

I read the magazine they had there. They were recent, by the way. I guess I should drop by the embassy library one of these days.

So yeah, it was a very nice event. There were tons of people that day. Maybe because they were taking advantage of the holiday (Independence day of Peru, July 28th). Anyway, I look forward to the next year's one. Next time, I will have a list of the books I'm looking for, so I am prepared for the colosal amount of books (lol)

Have a nice weekend!

[FAN ACCOUNT] 130622 Fanmeeting with U-kiss

Hello~ Well, today I’m sharing with you guys my experience during this year fan meeting with U-kiss. Let’s start from the top. 

The event was supposed to start at 1pm. My sister and I arrived at 1.20pm because of some inconvenient we had early that morning. So we were scared to death of missing part of the show and event our sits (Each ticket had its own sit). But, when we got to the place the event was going to be held, we saw LOTs of KissMes lining to enter and to get their tickets (lots of them bought the tickets online but couldn’t be able to go pick them days before because of lack of time). So, in the end we could enter with no problem and thank God, we still had our sits. I was in third middle row and my sister was first left row. My sit was perfect, I could clearly see everything and the girls in front of me weren’t tall at all (lucky me). And in the stage there were some huge U-kiss figures, like person-size. When I entered I thought they were U-kiss which freaked me out, but they were just pictures lol. Well, for this event I brought my Jaeseop’s uchiwa and my Hoon sign, all made by myself. I also brought my light stick and my Stop Girl CD. I was armed and ready to enjoy the show lol.

The show finally started at 1.30pm approximately, when the members appeared on stage. I was shocked. I mean, I saw them the day before during the concert but seeing them again and so close… was like a dream. I must emphasize, the only one that looks to me tall is AJ, the rest is more like normal to me.

Well, after the girls’ screams ceased, they introduced their selves. It was like after each greeting girls would just screamed like crazy lol. I didn’t scream by the way. I only waved them with my uchiwa and light stick. The greeting that cracked me up was AJ’s because he only said: “Hola…” and KissMe’s were already screaming like crazy. This by the way made him laugh. Then he just completed: “Yo soy AJ”(I’m AJ in Spanish) The only ones that introduced their selves in English were Kiseop and Eli. The rest spoke in Spanish. And Kevin was the only one who said “Buenos Días” (Good morning in Spanish) which made him look like an angel (also the clothing he had was so conservative compared to the rest, he really looked like a good kid lol).

Later, the host asked them some questions.

1) What are your thoughts after coming to Peru for the second time?

Soohyun: Peruvian KissMe are still very pretty (LOL). And we missed you guys so much and we are happy we came back to Peru.

2) What are your thoughts of the second concert in Peru?

Eli: First, the concert was so fun. I was glad to see how KissMe’s enjoyed the concert. And I had a great time MCing with Kevin yesterday and I want to know if we did a good job.


Kevin: It was so hard for us to learn Spanish but the willing of wanted to communicate with you guys made our task easier to complete.

KM: Aww (Kevin gained lots of fans that day lol)

Well, after these questions, each member chose one girl to come up to the stage to play with them. AJ picked a girl from my right and Hoon picked a girl from my left. I mean, come on! I guess it’s because I only had small signs (the girls chosen had big signs with them). But I made mine tiny because I didn’t want to disturbe someone’s view. I think that very disrespectful. Anyway, I was like seeing the girls who were chosen and I saw my sister on stage and I was like OMG OMG! And she was waving to me like I can’t believe I’m here, Andrea! I almost teared up because of joy. I mean, it didn’t bother me to not get picked but seeing my sister on stage just made my whole day. At least some of us was lucky that day and I loved it! Ok, you can read her fan account by clicking here.

U-kiss and the fans played an eye-contact game which consisted in not looking to other site besides your partner face (I wouldn’t have been able to make it. I would have gotten to embarrassed I guess). So the game began and the crowd was screaming of jealous and I was so happy in my sit seeing how my sister was so close to SooHyun (I didn’t even pay attention to the rest lol). Damn, at that time I wanted to have my camera with me so badly so I could record every second of that game. But, sadly my sister took it and left it on her sit (which was far away from mine and I couldn’t stand up at the moment I realized that I needed my camera). Well, the first one who lost was Kevin like after a couple of seconds lol (He was so shy, too bad for his fan because she wanted to play more). Then Hoon, Dongho, Eli lost. Hoon made Kiseop’s team to lose and made also my sister’s team to lose but since nobody noticed it they kept playing. Sadly, AJ’s team didn’t have the same luck. So my sister won, yay! At this moment I thought she would receive a group hug or an autographed CD since last year’s winners received that. But, she just hugged SH for the last time and returned her sit.

Then it was the second game, U-kiss chose 7 girls one more time. I wasn’t chosen this time either. But this time, Hoon noticed my little sign of him and made and approval sign with his thumb. After that he would see me from time to time to send me little hearts with his hands and to smile to me (AW).

Well, the second game started. This was a game chair and they used U-kiss’ songs to play. So the game started and omg, the fanchants were SO loud. I felt so proud. The first song was 0330 and AJ made an “I’m hearing your chants” sign with his hand and ear. Kevin, Kiseop and Hoon were the first ones to lose. So they started to dance along with the song. They played Tick Tack and we got to scream “Yeo Hoon Min” (fanchant) before they cut the song and Hoon noticed it and he was like: Me? Thanks (thumbs up to the crowd). I won’t ever forget that, it was so funny.

After the game was over, they went to rest. In the meanwhile, there was a raffle to get U-kiss’ autograph. Three friends of mine won. I was so happy for them! After it, the guys came back. This time, we had to choose the members who:

- Who is the most popular member? - Kiseop

- Who cooks the best? - Eli

- Who is the one that showers the less? - Soohyun

And each winner had to make a sexy dance after they were chosen. The funniest moment came when we had to choose the member who showers the less. All the members stood up and when they were sitting again, SH took Kevin’s chair away and he fell. We all burst in laugh. Then, Dongho did the same thing to Hoon, but to his luck almost no one noticed it. But, since Karma is a bitch. SH was picked as the member who showers the less lol. And, when he had to dance, he did quite an unique dance. Check it out in the video below, especially at min 0:07.

Later, they performed A Shared Dream (no dance, tho) and KissMe Forever (which I WAS PRAYING TO LISTEN). A Shared Dream was flawless. I really love this song so I enjoyed it the fullest. And with Pyeonsaeng, I became wild, seriously. I started dancing (with my lightstick and uchiwa) and singing like possessed. I mean, come on. That song is to party haha. So, when I was all concentrated with my movements, AJ stood up in front of me, stared at me and started clapping (min 1:23). And I was like, why is he looking at me RIGHT, NOW? When I’m all derp. But after he left, I kept dancing, trying to look cool this time, tho. So then he came back, this time Hoon joined him. AJ made some movements (min 2:32) he wanted me to follow and I did (like and obedient KM). And he laughed. Then, he just walked away again. Then the girls around me were like, he was just staring at you, didn’t he? And I: yeah ;_; Sadly, I didn’t have the camera at that moment, either. So the only prove I have it is in my mind… and in this video.

Then the guys talked about their plans to come back to Peru in the future more frequently and that they wanted us to keep supporting them. After that, they had the fan-signing with 50 lucky KissMe’s. It was very quick. Later, they just thanked us for coming and said goodbye. It was all over now.

I had a mixed of emotions by that time. I was happy because they always make me smile during this events and I had so much fun with them those 2 days. But I also was kind of sad since I wouldn’t see them again until God knows how much time. And also, because someone stole my light stick during the fan-signing :/ I went to my sister’s sit to take the camera to film something before they left, so I think that’s when it might got stolen. I’m so disappointed in the person who took it. At least it was broken and it didn’t really shine that much.

So yeah, this was my experience. Hope you liked it and didn’t get bored with too much explanation. Have a nice day!

Review: The Face Shop Volcanic Clay Nose Strip

Hello, guys! Well, today I'm back with another review of a nose strip. Lately I've been getting lots of white and blackheads so I wanted to give it a try to a nose strip I've bought long time ago and hadn't have the chance to use yet. It’s THE FACE SHOP Volcanic Clay Black Head Aloe Nose Strip. Quite a long name, isn’t it?

First, let’s see the specifications of the product:

“New Zealand Volcanica Clay cultivate a smooth, pposong, three-dimensional screen that can be imposing in the flawless doll skin project. It has strong blackhead and oily secretion absorption properties. Supported with pore minimizing ingredients, the Aloe Pore Strip will leave your skin feeling tight and smooth.”

How to use:

- Remove Strip from pouch. Twist strip to loosen and separate slits prior to use.
- After washing your face, thoroughly wet your nose. The strip won’t stick on a dry nose.
- Dry hands, peel strip off plastic liner. 
- Apply to nose area, smooth side down, pressing down to ensure good contact with skin.
- Let dry for about 10-15 minutes until stiff to the touch.
- Slowly and carefully peel off starting at edges, pulling toward center.


I must say the nose strip has a nice scent/perfume that you can feel when you put it on. Also, I let it for about 20 minutes to get a better result. And I really wouldn’t mind to let it for more minutes since I didn’t feel any burn during that time (burn that I felt when using the nose pack). Also, when I had to remove it, it wasn’t painful at all. So yay to that.

Although, on the down side, I irritated one of my pores (it made it bleed) but somehow it didn’t hurt any of my nose pimples (which I was the most afraid of happening, actually).

When it comes to results, the Volcanic Clay did remove part of my blackheads, but not completely. And it didn’t do much about my whiteheads. So I’m kind of disappointed (I wanted to get Seohyun’s perfect skin, you know? LOL)

So I give this product:

I think if you have a low amount of blackheads, you should definitely try this. But if you have a considerate amount of them plus whiteheads, you should try something else. Although the no-painful experience was great.

Repurchase?: No. There are so many other products out there that I want to try and that might work better for me.

So, hopefully this review helped you to get a better idea of this product. And keep in mind that everybody’s reaction to a product is different.

Have a nice day!

My first purchase from ebay

Hello~ I'm back after two months? I've been pretty bussy with school as always.And also with K-pop concerts lol I’m gonna upload my fan accounts of Super Show and U-kiss concert in these days. I always upload them very late OTL I guess I’m always in classes during K-pop concerts so I don’t have time to write them. And also I feel kind of depressed/melancholic after them. Can’t help it.

Well, this post is related to my first purchase from ebay (like the title says lol). I received my package like two weeks ago so it’s time to review it! But first, let me tell you I’ve always wanted to buy online. However, since it’s not very common in Peru, I couldn’t do it until now. Actually, there is a kind of fear of it. Fear of most use of the web to do transactions online, actually. But, since I have lots of friends buying from ebay I decided to give it a try.

First, I needed my ID to get a credit card. I took me like 3 months to get it because of all the paper work required and because the processing office was so far from my home. Well, once I got it, I went to the bank to get my credit card (is more like a savings card). It was very quick; I got it in like half an hour? LOL I put some money in it and I was ready to buy. YAY!

I got home so enthusiastic; I forgot I had classes later. I was like OK, Andrea, calm down and let’s do this. I entered to ebay, picked the item I wanted to buy (HOT PINK BB Cream) and follow all the procedures. Once I finished I was like, OMG I just did it. Now let’s cross fingers so it can arrive safely.

And… after three weeks my package was delivered safely~ I was lucky I was in home when the delivery guy came. I was so happy I screamed at home and partied hard with my dog lol. Then, I proceeded to check out my purchase. The package was pretty simple (a carton box), but had Korean letters all over it. I got a pair of scissors and opened it. Inside was my BB Cream, three samples, the buyer’s thanks letter and a card from the buyer’s store. My BB Cream came in perfect state, none scratch on it. I was a bit disappointed, tho. I was expecting my package to arrive within two weeks after the purchase so I could use it for the U-kiss concert. But, it arrived one week later OTL. It’s ok, since the delivery time is not always the same and the time was in the range of time expected.

I also need to say I didn’t choose my order in a moment. I did my whole research before even getting my ID. I needed to be sure that my order wouldn’t end up being a scam so I looked up for a top rated seller with the lowest price in the web (I need to think in my economy two, you know? Lol)

Well, that was my whole experience. I hope this can help you to lose your fair in online shops. But don’t get me wrong. There are lots of fake sellers and scam out there, so you need to be sure the site you are buying from is trustful. Don’t trust in words but actions :) I personally think ebay is a great web if you choose carefully.

Do you have any experience buying in ebay or other websites? I would like to hear. See ya~

Black Suede Creepers


It's me again. I've been in exams so I couldn't update anything. But, during mid-term exams I happened to see something amazing: I saw SNSD's advertisement in a very well-known avenue of my city. And this avenue happens to be near my university and home lol Is it faith? Well, I take the same bus everyday to get to university and last week, I saw this big and new advertisement of a watch and somehow I payed attention to the models and they were Yoona, Seohyun and Tiffany from GG. And I was like OMG!! I couldn't help to smile and laugh inside the bus. I didn't have a camera so I waited until this week to take a picture of it.

And well, recently I've got my black suede creepers! I've been wanting a pair of these since years and I finally have a pair :) And I love them! Main reason: they make me 4 cms taller lol. It would be perfect if they were very comfortable to use, but I must say they are somehow tough. They hurt my feet when I use them and they are my size. But, I guess it's because they are new shoes so it will take me a while to get use to them. Hopefully they will get as comfortable as sneakers soon.

Anyway, I leave you some coordinates I used recently with my creepers. I still have LOTS of ideas of coordinates for my creepers ^^ But, I also need to buy some other things to compliment my outfits. My wishlist is loooong and I don't have the enough money to cover them all :( But somehow I'm managing to get what I want with real effort :) But, K-pop concerts are really interfering lol Recently Super Junior came, now I need to get the money for U-kiss and DBSK also confirmed they were coming so... I really need to save more money.

Well, that's for today. Take a lot of care. Bye~

Review: Etude House Green Tea Nose Pack


Well, I'm here with another quick review. This time I'm reviewing Etude House Green Tea Nose pack. I bought a couple of nose patch of different brands in order to get rid of some black and white pores I have. So I decided to try this out since it's very known.

First of all, let's see what the pack says:

You open the packing and you will get this green nose patch. The darker one is the one you put facing your nose. The side showed in the picture below is the one that is visible when you stick it in your face. The patch smells nice, I must say.

So you take the patch out of the transparent paper and put it in your nose. Directions says to wait until it's dry. So I waited around 20 minutes before I took it off. It actually kind of burn my face while I was waiting. So I freaked out because I was scared It could damage my skin (I broke out few days before I tried it, so I was worried about my pimples.).

Anyway, somehow I managed to wait 20 minutes of burn and I took the patch off. It kinda hurt, but less than the burn. The look wasn't that nice, because I had some residues on my nose. Maybe I should've wait longer? Who knows. I wipe my nose with cotton and some toner and then this was the final result:

Score: 2/5

Review: I got this for $2, kind of cheap. But I really expected something else. I mean, it kind of clean some white pores. Maybe with constant use you could get better results, but the inmediate effect is basically none.

Repurchase?: No. I still have some patches I wanna try.

Well, that's it. Hope this helped in your next bought. See ya :)

Quick Outfit Update

Hey! :) It's me again. Well, today I'm just updating the outfits I used this week. Very simple coordinates cause I've been pretty busy with my studies to come up with something great. Sorry for that.

The first one is just a butterflies and ribbons pink t-shirt (Estilos), black leggings and oxfords shoes. And the thing in my head is my bunny-ear headband (Do It). I love those, if I could have the money I would buy tons of those lol 

The second one is my sister's sweater BOY (she got it from E-bay), some plain jeans, oxfords and also a headband (it used to be my mom's, not anymore lol). 

The third one is a blue flower corset, jeans and oxfords. I use my oxfords most of the time. I got no so many more shoes OTL

The fourth one is actually my favorite. It's a blue flower bustier I bought few months ago, jeans with brown belt (The City Mode), pumps (Marquis) and headband (Do it). I'm feeling more comfortable using this bustier since I could reduce my belly with gym lol

The fifth one is my black star-dotted blouse (Sybilla), with a belt (The City Mode) around my waist, jeans and oxfords.

And the last one I used it on a cold day. A sweater, belt, leggings and oxfords. Most offbrand. I hardly have something of a particular brand. I actually only buy from stores I find randomly... That's why I have no savings OTL.

Anyway, these days' weather have been pretty annoying. I really don't know what to where cause it's cool in the morning, then it becomes sunny and really hot at midday, then freaking cold at night. And I'm out the whole day, so sometimes I just have no option but to carry some jacket -_- Also, most of the pictures were taken at night, so my hair was pretty messy and I was so tired so I censored my face with a skull lol

Well, that's it for this week. I would lie if I say I would update in the week. I got so many tests this week so I won't be able to update until weekend. So see you until next Sunday :)

Review: Pond's Clarant B3

Hi! Here it's me again with another beauty review. This time I'm reviewing Pond's Clarant B3. I'm going to tell you about my long expierence with this cream since this is the second time I buy this. Well, let's start with the statements of this cream:

- Dermatologicaly tested. Hipoallergenic.

- Whitens in six weeks. With UV filter.

- Instruccions: Use daily in face, neck and body parts exposed to the sun (legs, arms, hands). Use it twice a day for better results.

- Ingredients: Water, Niacinamide, Stearic Acid, isopropyl Myristate, Mineral Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Glycerin, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Cetyl Alcohol, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Dimethicone, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Sodium PCA, Glutamic Acid, Propylparaben, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate.

My personal experience: 

The first time I bought this cream was last year, early January. I bought it because I wanted to whiten some dark spots in my face and also because I wanted to even my body skin color (my arms were too tanned in comparison with my face). So I bought this cream for around $8 in the closest supermarket. Very cheap for the whole content (100g). So I tried it out, and in order to succeed in my whitening proccess, I also used sunshade and sunblock during the whole summer. And the results were amazing! I almost recovered my natural skin color. I used this cream only in arms and face because I used jeans or leggings during summer (in order to avoid using creams in my legs too, lol).

But, this cream didn't whiten my dark spot. Instead, every new pimple I got, it left a spot. AGH! It never happened that way, even if I had touched them, they used to vanished; but after using this cream my pimples started to leave spots all over my face. So, I never used it in my face again. Plus, it doesn't work as a primer either (like it says). It makes my face more oily and makes my makeup last shorter. I have oily skin by the way.

Well, after I had a good experience with this product, my sister bought the cream, too. And it did work good on her, too. Just that she didn't get the full results because she didn't protect herself from the sun, besides using the cream.

And the pictures below is the record of my second time using this cream. The before and after. The light is not exactly the same. The first one was taken in the morning and the second one at night, but you can still notice the improvement. Plus, this second time I've been lazy to finish the whole treatment and to protect me wisely, but it still worked. I think I will buy my third dose for this winter, too. And of course, this time didn't put anything on my face, in order to avoid problems lol.

Score: 4/5

- Whitens body (to reach your natural skin tone), but you need to also use sunblock and protect from the sun exposure.
- Moisturize skin.
- Last looong time if you only use it on your face. But, even if you used it in your whole body (arms, hands, neck and legs) it will last for 6 weeks, used twice daily.

- Do not erase dark spots
- Not recommended for people with acne problems

Repurchase? Yup, this is a must have. At least for me because I want to mantain my natural skin tone.

Just some final thoughts. There is a new version of this cream. Two new types, actually: for normal to oily skin and for normal to dry skin. My sister bought these "updated" version and also worked on her. So I'm just stating that you might not find this package anymore (The baby pink one. I guess they are not producing it anymore), but you can find the other version according to your skin type. I might review that too in the future.

Thanks for reading!
