Review: Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner

Hello guys! :)

I'm back from the death hahaha ^^ Finally I'm doing another review. This time I'm going to review Etude House's Wonder Pore Freshner. I'm sorry that it's coming so late but I didn't have any time because of my exams and then I got breakouts due to the Beton product (review coming soon). So it actually ruined my mood to post a blog. But now I have more time and I'm ready to post more and frequently since we have holidays :) So let's get started! Read on!


Packaging:




It has a nice packaging with cute illustrations.  I love the color ^^ But unfortunately most of the writing is in korean :/ Well you still understand how to use it and for what :D

What it claims:

It claims to be the total pore solution. It is a 7 in 1 product and promises to:
-deep cleanse pores
-maintain ph 4.5
-control a large amount of sebum
-minimize appearance of pores
-refine skin tones
-keep the elasticity of pores
-moisture inside and outside of skin

It says it's the wonder woman for our pores. Sweet~~^^

Results:

I really have problems with enlarged pores. I mean really big, like hell. Unfortunately >. < But like this I can review this product intensively, right? I used the toner for about three months. Till now I didn't see any changes in my pores or blackheads. My skin didn't improve at all! And I also have oily combination skin but it didn't do anything in regards of sebum control. I really expected mcu of this product since it's so popular and I read may good reviews. But it didn't work out for my skin :( But still there is something I like about this toner. It moistures very nice and as a mist it's really refreshing. I lime that this product can be used in many ways. I even use it to wet my make up sponge, it makes the make up application much easier and gives you a nice healthy finish.

Contra:

-didn't do anything to my pores, blackheads
-no sebum control
-didn't do what it promised to

Pro:

-moisturising,  not drying
-nice finish after make up
-didn't make me breakout

Where I purchase it:

I've bought the 250ml product at BeautynetKorea for about $ 13.14. It's on sale right now.

Would I repurchase it:

No, I wouldn't.  It didn't do anything for my skin. But it was a nice product to try out. I'm going to use it all. Next I will purchase the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner.  Do you have any experiences with it?


What about you? How did this toner work out for you?

Thank you for reading :) Hope to see you at my next review ^.^

Review: Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream

Hey guys!
Sorry for not blogging for so long. It's so frustrating with the school. I don't have much time for my blog >.<  But you know just three weeks school and then holidaaaays *-* I'm so excited!~^^
Now, I'm back with a product review, finally hihihi Well I actually don't know how I should do it since it's my first review ever but I'll try my best!!^^

I'm going to review the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in no. 21 Light Beige. I purchased the smaller tube with 20ml to try it out. It's my first Korean BB Cream and I wasn't sure if I would like it.

Packaging:

The front side


Back side

It was really difficult to take photos of the package. You can see how I took the photo. There are more of those photos :D But here a better shot of the back side:


And now the  actual product



I really love the package. The tube comes in a red color.  It is just so elegant. But unfortunately the tube is really used. So it doesn't look that good any more. Yeah I used it quite often ^^ 

Texture:

Applied

It has a thick and creamy texture. But it isn't sticky at all. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin. I really like it, I feel that my skin still can breath. It doesn't feel like a heavy foundation.

Coverage:

Half-blended

Well,  first let me tell you something about my skin. I have acne prone skin and I have dark acne scars. Also my skin tends to be oily and because of that my make up fades away. This time it was like that too. The BB Cream has a nice coverage, but it's not strong enough to cover up my acne scars so I had to use a concealer. And the BB Cream fades away after a few hours (well after 3 hours or so) even if I set it with powder and use a primer before. It's really a pity. Besides it accentuate my dry spots so before applying you have to moisturise good. And unfortunately it also accentuated my pores (Yes, I have enlarged pores too. Troubled skin sucks ><) But it also have positive aspects. It isn't drying and I have the feeling that it slightly gives some moisturising. 

Color:

It has a grey undertone. At first I was worried that it wouldn't match my skin tone but after some waiting it adapted to my skin tone. So it wasn't a problem. But since sommer is coming and I'll get a tan I have to buy a darker colored BB Cream. 

Scent:

I really like the scent. It has a lovely flower scent. But to those who have a sensitive nose, the fragrance is maybe a little bit too strong. However I really enjoy the scent :)

What it claims:

"Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream offers a novel skincare concept with BB Cream, which lightens skin tone by healing visible and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability,  and prevents skin aging trough effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties."

Anti-wrinkle effect:
Well you know I'm not so old that my skin is full of wrinkles so I can't jugde that :D

Anti-Whitening:
I didn't see any changes maybe because I'm using it only for a month. But I also didn't expect any dramatic changes.

Anti-Blemish:
This BB Cream didn't give me any breakouts by using it the very first time. And I didn't have many pimples after using. I can confirm the anti-blemish effect. I really like this fact^^

Sun Protection:
I love the high sun protection of this product.  It has SPF 42 and PA+++. Sun Protection doesn't harm anybody :)

Where did I buy it:

You can purchase the 20ml product at BeautynetKorea for about $6.12. Not that pricey so it is affordable.  And I used it more than one month and there is still many BB Cream left. So it is also long lasting. 

Result:

All in all, it is a nice BB Cream which is perfect for sensitive skin. Maybe I will repurchase it when my  skin condition gets better since I have many dry spots which gets more obvious with applying this BB Cream.

Did you also tried out the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream?  How are your experiences? Did you like my first review? How can I improve it? Tell me in the comment section :)

And have a nice day ♥

LEDApple... Baby read to this text!

Hey guys!
Today I'm going to introduce you an awesome korean boy band! Actually at first I wanted to do a product review next, but since my package didn't arrive yet, I decided to do something else. So where should I start? Well,  yesterday I was listening to korean music  ( B.A.P.- Warrior ^.^) on YouTube and somehow I discovered the official account of LEDApple. The first song I listened was a solo of the main vocal. He covered "Wrecking Ball" from "Miley Cyrus" and wow he has an amazing voice *-* Really!
Here is a picture of the band:
So what's your first impression?  They are good-looking, aren't they? ^^

The band consists of five members

- Kyumin
Yeah this is Kyumin. He is the maknae of the band and also the rapper.

-Kwangyeon
That's him :D His part is the bass and he also does a part of the rapping.

-Hyoseok
Hyoseok is the drummer of Ledapple. I think he is like the diva of the group ^^

-Hanbyul
Hanbyul is the main vocalist and also a rapper. He is from Australia, so he also has an english name- Jason.

-Youngjun
Youngjun is the oldest one and the leader and guitarist here. He and Kwangyeon are the only two origin members left.


I love them all ♥

But guess who my bias is :D
...?

HANBYUL♥

I'm not quite sure why him but if I first listened to his solo, I loved it. Just so amazing *-* He is really cute^^

But now back to the band. Ledapple is actually kinda rock band type. Are you curious why it is LEDApple?  LED stood for "Logic Egoistic Delete" but it also refers to their role model Led Zeppelin. And the Apple represents their fresh image and music. We fans are called LEDAs :))

The band has six singles and three albums. They also have a "Music Note Project" . You can find the project on youtube. The project has 50 episodes where the band covers number one hits, not only korean one but also american. I will give you the link to the official youtube account, so you could check them out!


Here is the first song I've ever listened and which I have spoken from, at the behinning of this post. It is also a cover from the Music Note Project.
Cover of "Wrecking Ball from Miley Cyrus" by Hanbyul



A fantastic cover song!♥

And here's another one. It's from Katy Perry- Roar covered by Hanbyul:



This one is with BoA. Just give me a reason- Pink.



They did even a cover from Gentleman- PSY:



And here are some of their own songs:

Time is up


Who are you


Did you know LEDApple already? Who is your bias in LEDApple?  What do you think of them? Please let me know in the comments :)

Check them out please :)
I really recommend you Ledapple. These guys are amazing! 
Bye bye! And have a nice day!~^^
I hope next time I can do the review :D


PS: The title is a little bit weird. I just tried to change the phrase from the song Time is up "Baby listen to this song!" And result is like this hihihi
