Review: Skinfood Lemon Tea Salt Mask Foam

I was sick for the latter part of last week so I didn't get much blogging done on the weekend. But after sleeping 17 hours out of a possible 24 hours (by skipping class ha ha ha...), I feel much better so here I am! I usually don't buy things I haven't tried before in full size. The reason I made this an exception was because I've had great success with Skinfood's Black Sugar Scrub Foam, and somehow I thought that since the sugar worked so well, maybe salt would work just as well if not better! Yes, it makes no sense..I know.

Review: It's Skin Power 10 Formula Propolis

This sample is apparently a limited edition of their Power 10 Formula line. I got this and It's Skin Power 10 Formula CO Effector with Phyto Collagen as samples when I bought It's Skin Prestige Creme Hand D'Escargot back when I went to Korea for the summer. The snail hand cream was a dud unfortunately but It's Skin Power 10 Formula CO Effector with Phyto Collagen was impressive enough for me to go venture into GMarket for the first time and buy the full size along with another product from the same line for sebum control (will review once I get to trying it).

Review: Etude House Collagen Moistfull Firming Eye Cream

I wonder how much money I've spent on eye cream samples so far. Probably enough to buy a jar of nice Shiseido eye cream! Nothing seems to work very well except for Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Cream, which I bought a full jar of because there were no samples. Yes, this is my attitude these days when I try new eye creams these days. I actually never thought I'd try this eye cream but I've read reviews and they haven't been that great. But I saw it on eBay for $2 including shipping so I thought, well, why not? Fortunately, this time I was pleasantly surprised.

Review: Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask with scoria and green complex

I've been wanting to try this clay mask for a long time. I've heard lots of reviews about it being great and I've always wondered how it compared to my favorite clay mask, Origins Active Charcoal Mask at clearing my pores, brightening my face and preventing breakouts. I was lucky enough to find it at a reasonable price on eBay a few months ago so I purchased it! 

Review: It's Skin Power 10 Formula CO Effector with Phyto Collagen

I got this as a sample when I bought It's Skin Prestige Creme Hand D'Escargot back when I went to Korea for the summer. The snail hand cream was a dud unfortunately but the salesperson gave me two samples of this. Since my first impression of It's Skin was damaged by the hand cream, it took me awhile before I decided to give this one a try. But good thing I did!

Review: Skinfood Gold Caviar Lifting Eye Serum (wrinkle care)

The winter weather and indoor heating are making my under eyes really dry. I've been trying eye cream samples in succession, with the most recent being IOPE V-Fit Lift Eye Cream for the fine lines under my eyes, but it wasn't moisturizing enough. So my eyes have just been getting progressively drier and drier. Even when I went back to using Skinfood Gold Caviar Collagen Eye Cream as an attempt to save my under eyes, which worked for me before in the summer, did barely nothing this time around during the winter! So I decided to give this one a try since I bought it a few months ago anyways.
