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!
