Empty review: @jonecosmetic hana cream.
A capsule cream that claims to have an anti-wrinkle effect and give appearance of lifted and firmer skin.
Let me preface this review by saying I didn't like this cream at all.
The tub is filled with around 50-60 little cream balls that you mash in your hands and spread over your face. While this had some #skintertainment value, i found it annoying after awhile. They are super slippery.
I also had to use about 5-6 balls to get the level of thickness i like for a PM cream.
And if you can ever get over the highly fragrant baby powder smell - which didn't dissipate quickly - I found the cream to function mediocre at best. I never noticed firmer skin and it doesnt moisturize my skin through the night, meaning i often woke up with parched, tight skin. I could fix that by wearing a heavier cream/occlusive on top, but that just means this product isn't enough for me.
With some botanical oils and shea butter among the top ingredients, it is thick and feels moisturizing once applied - but that's about the only good thing i have to say.
I'm really happy I got this cream on sale and an extra $25 off with my memebox points - totaling this creams cost to me a nice $12 - but I would never pay $50, or repurchase for that matter. So happy i finally finished this so i can feel less guilty using my other new moisturizers.

I am very low maintenance with my hair care. On a usual day, I will blow dry it with my hands after washing it, focus mainly on the roots and call it a day. I do not like to feel any products in my hair as I like the clean feeling of freshly washed hair. On days when I feel kinda fancy, I will put hair rollers to give it some texture but thats kinda rare occasion 😅 💖💖💖 #Panasonic Nano Hairdryer - I love Panasonic hair dryer as it is powerful so I do not need to blow dry it for a long time even with my thick and long hair. It has fancy setting for scalp and such which I have to admit I do not use 😅 I have had this for around 8 years and it is still going strong. My hair didn't get damaged as well even when I do not use any heat protecting products. Obviously, I cannot compare as I have not use a lot of brands but I am liking this 👍 💖💖💖 #T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers - I love this hot rollers, so easy to use and give me such good result in a small amount of time. I usually do 10 rollers for my whole head so its huge thick section per roller and I will start to take it out when I am done with the last one so its very quick and it gives me an effortless wave and loads of volume. I also love that my hair is very soft after using it. I save this for special nights because I am lazy like that 😝 💖💖 #T3 Rose Gold Styling Wand - This comes in a trio interchangeable head but I only use the largest wand and seem to have lost the other 2😥 This gives a more defined curl than the rollers but I have a tendency to burn my hands when I am using it so this comes out very rarely. Only when I need to go somewhere fancy like wedding or such for a long period of time. 💖💖💖 #Drybar High Tops rollers - This is my tool when I am too lazy to take out my hot rollers but my hair is super flat that day. I will put this on the crowns of my head while I do my makeup and viola!! Hair out of face and some volume to go 👍

#DYK : Raspberries work like magic on wrinkles? Not only are they simply delicious to eat, they can also be used as a natural face mask!
Raspberries can help protect the skin against sun rays. The antioxidant powers of vitamin C have the ability to reduce age spots, discoloration and wrinkles.
Face Mask Magic 🔮❤️:
Mix 1 cup of plain yogurt
2 cups of fresh raspberries
Blend the mixture until it becomes as smooth as possible. Apply to your face and keep it on for approximately 15 minutes. Wash it off with tepid water and enjoy!
Reviewing - @neutrogena deep clean blackhead eliminating cooling toner.
⭐️⭐️⭐️About the product⭐️⭐️⭐️
CTM is a very important part of skin care routine & we generally tend to ignore toning. Toning helps in cleaning the remaining dirt on the skin, any excess makeup & tightens pores. I have been using Neutrogena toner for quite some time now. Neutrogena is a dermatological - recommended skin care brand
⭐️⭐️⭐️ Price & avaliablity ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The product is avaliable on all e - commerce platforms & cosmetic stores. It retails for 399 and if often on discount. I got a blackhead eliminating scrub free on my purchase. .
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Claims ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- helps effectively eliminate blackheads from the very first use & prevent new ones from forming
- Delivers instant cooling sensation, tightens pores & soothes skin
- Blackhead fighting complex
- Non - comedogenic - Oil - free
⭐️⭐️⭐️ Consistency & Texture ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The consistency of the toner is just like water, it is runny & transparent in colour. It has a mild minty fragrance which fades within ten minutes of application. .
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Packaging ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It comes in a large White bottle with a yellow cap. It has mention of the product & brand right infront.
A flip-top cap with a screwable bottle is what makes it very easy to handle.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ My experience ⭐️⭐️⭐️
As the name suggests it's a cooling toner & claims to eliminate blackheads. I have a oily t- zone which is very prone to blackheads. The toner gives a very cooling sensation on my skin immediately also it tinkles a bit every time I use it. I can feel my skin getting cleaned, it picks up all the dirt, excess makeup &I oil from my skin after use. I have noticed that little oil comes on my skin, my t-zone becomes oily after 3-4 hours.
The toner doesn't works on shrinking pores nither does it controls pimple. The best thing about the toner is it leaves my noes shining after every use.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Pros ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- worth the price - Cleans all the traces of dirt - Gives a cooling, soothing & refreshing feeling after every use .
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ cons ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- not every light causes stinging sensation
- Contains paraben & alchol
Currently on a no buy to save money and more importantly use up some of my skincare stash. Still have a wishlist though and these are the main things on it at the moment. Just need to stay strong and not shop!!! @janescrivnerskincare cleansing balm and OO cream. Love everything I've tried by Jane so I'm sure these are fab too. @jordansamuelskin etoile with retinol. Same as before, love this brand so need to try this. Finally @lavinity dry skin facial oil. Love the sound of the lemon and ylang ylang scent and the brand sounds interesting and worth a try. Love trying small independent brands rather than the big companies. #nobuyjuly#nobuy#wishlist#skin#skincare#skincareroutine#skincarecommunity#instaskin#instabeauty#instablogger#needsomeempties#needtousemystash

Day 20 & 22 of #abmidyearstashchallenge hosted by @peepingpomenarian and @mindyourbeauty is Body,
Hand & Foot care.
Unlike my face, I am really simple with my body, hand and foot care as I suffer from very dry and sensitive skin so all those 'luxury and fancy' lotion doesn't really work as they usually contain fragrance or is too light for me. I am sticking to what my dermatologist ask me to use and it has work so far. 💖💖💖 #Cetaphil Daily Advance Lotion - Has been using this since 10 years ago and is the only one that soothe and moisturize my skin adequately. I tried Aveeno when I first arrive in US since my friend told me that's good for sensitive skin and it broke me out in rashes so I went back to this. Affordable and works for me. It doesn't really have any scent and dries down quite fast. 💖 #SoldeJaneiro Acai Body Power Cream - I have heard so much about this brand so I decided to grab the sample size at Sephora. Smells kinda fruity but leaves my skin still parched but thankfully no rashes. Not too sure what I can do with it. Maybe apply it on date night? 🤔 #SoldeJaneiro Bum Bum Cream - not opened yet so can't really say but judging from the failure of Acai Body Cream, I might have to find a new home for it 😅
Mini-haul! I jut picked up the new Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude foundation. I hadn't heard anything about it, but @gossmakeupartist says it's the best liquid foundation he has ever tried, so I had to pick it up. It does not come with a pump, but you can buy one for $10, and this pump should work on this bottle or the original Double Wear bottle. They actually had my exact color from the original DW, but the shade selection is much smaller. The color is indeitical to the color I have in original DW, so I think the colors will translate well. I always recommend getting matched though. First impressions will be posted tomorrow! FYI: THIS IS THE EXACT SAME FOUNDATION AS MAC WATERWEIGHT AND SMASHBOX BB WATER FOUNDATION. I FOUND THIS OUT AFTER I BOUGHT IT. I'm still doing the review, because the color matches me really well, whereas the MAC one I have but don't wear because the color doesn't match.
Friday 20/7/2017 Pre-Makeup Routine
💜Today was a really lovely day, I went shopping with my family and then went blueberry picking. When we got back home my parents surprised me with this @tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask! I am so grateful to them, they are so sweet! I ended up masking with my mom which was really fun, but she said that the mask stung her skin so if u have very sensitive skin u should keep that in mind! I personally didn't feel any stinging but my skin is used to mild AHAs. 💜Cleanse: @glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, 1 pump to break down spf and then I went in a second time to ensure that my face was properly cleansed. My skin didn't feel stripped at all- I am loving this cleanser so far !
💜Mask: @tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask, first time using this mask. I applied a generous layer which I let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing off with warm water (followed the directions like a good girl 😂). This has no scent at all and a lovely lavender color. It applies very smoothly and doesn't dry down hard like a clay mask. It stays at it's original consistency. My skin definitely felt a lot softer after using it and my textured areas looked and felt a lot better. I didn't notice any significant brightness but all in all this seems like a really nice mask .
💜Moisturize/Primer: @glossier Priming Moisturizer, first time using this moisturizer. I do not like the scent, it smells like sour milk. It is a very light moisturizer so I know that I personally won't be able to use this alone in the winter months. I will report back on Saturday night to let u know how my makeup held up .
💜I hope u have a great weekend !
While most moisturizers sit on the surface of the skin, the @oxygenetix Oxygenating Moisturizer provides immediate hydration and obscures any signs of procedures. An added bonus? It protects your skin from sun and environmental damage. It's a great product for anyone looking to add a youthful fullness to their skin!
