Korean Beauty Haul from Peach and Lily! Cremorlab, Mizon, and Aromatica

Saturday, August 8, 2015

Hi there :) SO as a beauty blogger, I get sent products to try and was excited when Peach and Lily reached out to me and asked if I'd like to try some of products from their website! Of course, I was like YES. It's a win-win because not only do I get more products to review and show you guys, but I also get to interact with the people at the website, which helps me get a feel for whether I'd recommend their website to you guys!

Anyways...

Let's get to the breakdown...

Peach and Lily is actually a really interesting website. As I scrolled through the pages, I noticed that most, if not all, of their products are from high-quality brands that prioritize natural and effective ingredients. They also have a page on their website that describes the process of selecting products for their shop... which shows how much effort, detail, and consideration goes into the products. You should definitely check the page out for yourself! I'd also like to mention how easy their site is to navigate and their shipping was extremely fast!

Cremorlab Refreshing Cleansing Gel Oil
I've been wanting to try out a bunch of different oil/balm cleansers because I wanted to do a comparison video for you guys. I've heard of this brand before, but haven't gotten the opportunity to try anything from them until now! But how beautiful is this bottle? It looks so glamorous!!

Cremorlab Herb Tea Blemish Minus Calming Mask
Ah! I don't even want to open it! It looks so nice :) Excited to try some nicer sheets masks. I use sheets masks 2-3 times a week so I'm always open to try some more! Plus, this one looks fancccyyy!

 Mizon Special Care Apple Smoothie Peeling Gel
I wanted to do the same thing I'm planning with the cleansing oils/balms, so I've been gathering some peeling gels to do a comparison review for you guys! They're really fun to use and I love Mizon products, so this should be interesting!

Aromatica Rose Absolute First Serum
I'm starting to really like rose products.. the smell is just so refreshing! This product seemed really unique to me, and I can't wait to see if this works well. It's designed for dry and aging skin, so my skin will probably love it since it's SO dry!

Hope you enjoyed my Korean Beauty Haul from Peach and Lily :) I can't wait to put these items to the test!

Korean Beauty Haul From PrettylilFace! Tony Moly, Innsifree, Etude House and More!

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

It's time for a haul!! I got these products from PrettylilFace and wanted to share what I got! 
I included a lot of shipping information and other website information in the video, so be sure to watch it if you're curious!



\

I know some of you guys like to see pictures of the products, so I was sure to include it in this post!

Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream
I've been wanting to try this CC Cream to see if it gives you a nice dewy glow! We'll see how this works out and if it really does make your skin look luminious.

Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream 
This is one of those color adjusting CC Creams... at least I'm pretty sure it is. What else would color control stand for?? Anyways, I'm really into Innisfree skincare, so I want to start branching into more of their makeup. 

Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder
This is a translucent powder that is supposed to be great for those of you with oily skin. I really can't wait to put it to the test.. plus I have a feeling it's going to be somewhat similar to the ultra-famous Innisfree No Sebum Powder.
 It comes with a cute little puff of course!

Etude House V-Line Slim Maker
I don't know if you've noticed too, but contouring has become much more popular in Korean beauty. However, instead of contouring yourself a new pair of cheekbones, it seems like the trend in Korea is to use contouring to make your jaw and face look slimmer. Either way, I'm happy to see more Korean brands come up with their own contouring powder!
Look how pretty the highlight is too! Plus it comes with a nice little brush :)
AHHH the design too! I'm sadly wearing it away as I use it :(

 Skinfood Lettuce and Cucumber Watery Essence
I was looking for an essence that's a bit lighter because it's summer and I don't like apply heavy toners, serums and creams on top of each other. We'll see how I like this because it's supposed to be pretty nice!

Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream
I love peeling gels and I know this one is a super popular one. Plus, it's more of a cream than gel so I wanted to see if this worked any differently!

Tony Moly Floria Brightening Peeling Gel
HOLY GRAIL ALERT! I've tried samples of this before and fell in love immediately. It literally makes my skin glow and look so luminous. I'll have to do a review on this for you guys :) 

Innisfree Long Wear Cushion Foundation
I'm on the hunt for more cushion foundations and I heard rave reviews about this one. I've already done a first impressions on this, so definitely check out that video to how it worked for me!
 I know, I can't seem to keep these cushion puffs neat. Oh well, makeup is messy right?! :) 

Hope you enjoyed my haul! As always, don't forget to check out my youtube channel, The Beauty Breakdown, where I'll do more reviews and first impressions of these products!

[Review] Adorlee Youth Reviving and Preserving Eye Cream with Eyeliss

Hellooooo! Today I'm bringing you my review for the Adorlee Youth Reviving Eye Cream. I have both the reviving and preserving cream!

So let's get to the breakdown...

Disclaimer
I did receive these as a gift from Adorlee, however was not paid to do this review. These are my own personal and honest opinions as always :)
Packaging
Ah...packaging...packaging is definitely a big deal for me. I love looking at pretty things but let's face it; the packaging has to be functional too right?? The preserving cream (which is the pot on the left) is great! It's a good size, not too big or too small, and it's also functional. It also comes with a spatula (which isn't pictured) for hygienic use. However, this is the big downer for me. The packaging of the youth preserving cream (on the right) didn't work. I don't know if the pump of all of these are finicky or what, but mine stopped working after using it a couple times. Therefore, I only got to try this eye cream a couple times so I don't honestly feel comfortable reviewing it for you. Trust me, I tried to get this product out in every way I could. I tried shaking it, storing it upside down, pumping and shaking, EVERYTHING. It just didn't work. It does look beautiful, but what's the point if it stops working? Maybe it's the specific bottle I got...(Also, the crack happened after it stopped working)
Purpose
For the rest of this review, I'll just be referring to the Adorlee Youth Preserving Eye Cream since I wasn't able to try the other one. This cream is meant for using at night time and helps reduce puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also contains ingredients such as hyaluronate acid, coconut oil, white tea, ginseng, and aloe vera. On top of that, they have a patented combination of ingredients called Eyeliss, which is unique to their eye cream. I took this from their website: 
"Clinical tests show 70% of users experience visibly reduced under eye puffiness **20 Female volunteers, aged between 40 and 60 presenting chronic bags under the eye area. Twice daily application for 56 days of a gel containing 3% Eyeliss™"
Directions
After you've cleansed your skin in the morning, pat the cream under your eyes and avoid your tear ducts and eyes. This was where it got interesting.. I actually couldn't use this in the morning. It burned when in the sun and when I would sweat (during workouts and such!). So I actually used this at night. I also couldn't use this on my eyelids. It would burn that area too and when I emailed the company to find out more information on the burning, they let me know it was most likely caused by the retinol in the cream. 
Results
I did notice reduced puffiness and I gave my mom some to use to see if it would work on her fine lines. After she used it, she said she did notice a reduction in puffiness and she thinks it works on her fine lines a little bit. Out of curiosity to see if she actually liked it, I asked if she would buy it and what was the most she would pay for it. She said $40, which is great because the cream is $39! By the way, my mom had the same issues with burning and could only use it at night and under her eyes like me. 
Texture
The consistency of this cream is on the lighter side. I like this because it absorbs into the skin really quick and doesn't feel like it's sitting on my skin.

Overall
Keep in mind, I'm just going to give you my overall thoughts on the youth preserving eye cream since I couldn't try the other one.
