I was looking into balm type moisturizers these days and came across this product at Target. I first tried the organic face nourishing eye makeup remover b/c face super balm was sold out at there. Loved the remover, it is indeed very moisturizing and it doesn't sting your eyes, gets rid of makeup super clean. The consistency is gel- like oil that turns into white liquid when you wash off with water so it's super easy to get it off.
(I hate those removers that are so hard to get it off from your skin, what's the point of erasing makeup if you can't get the actual cleanser off? )
So after loving the product I went and got the other two products. It was quite hard to find the face balm, I had to go to 3 different Target stores to get it, and I snatched the last one at the store.
Out of the three product, I am least fond of this product. It's a Deep Clean Mousse for dry skin.
Small haulin from BBB!
I think beauty section at BBB is actually listed cheaper than many drugstores these days, especially if you use those 20% off or $5.00 off coupons you get in the mail ( they send you literally every week I think)
Starting from Left
Neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer pure sun screen SPF50
for sensitive skin.
eos shave cream in lavender jasmine
( Love the packaging, it's rubbery so it doesn't slip when you use it in the shower, love the scent)
Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy collection in
( Finally in US!!! I almost screamed when I saw this on display!)
Maybelline Dream fresh BB
( I saw this for around $10 at my local CVS recently)
Revlon Balm Stain in
Nyx lip liner
854 PALE PINK
(it looks lot more paler in person, sort of dusty rose color)
So I received a sample along with my purchase from Sephora.
The sample packet is actually a decent size, enough to try out for a week if I use it on spots, where I have freckles and dots I guess.
So far, it's been D-4 and I had no irritation or breakouts! I know I really can't expect a difference over couple of days using the product but still you never know I guess :)
I will post a review after I am done with it. ( Btw, the picture was taken before testing the product out and sorry for the scary looking eye hahaha)
I recently re organized my room and bought couple different things from IKEA. One of them was HELMER. It's $39.99 and has 6 drawers that is perfect size to store makeup for most of the people. you can get it from here. I picked up 3 dividers from IKEA also, it's called ANTONIUS. It's displayed online but you have to get in store. It's $3.00 per basket. Just for the information, I thought it would be located in the market area but they had in mattress section ( which was kind of odd, i had to go upstairs again :T) It's very easy to set up, it took me little bit more than one hour.
Lioele water drop BB SPF 27
Innisfree mineral cover BB SPF 35
Tony moly aqua aura moisturising BB SPF 30
It's in the same order from the top to bottom from the list I wrote above
As you can see three of them have different color pay offs.
if you look closely, Lioele BB cream have kind of cool formula, it forms water bubbles as you blend.
Innisfree BB cream doesn't oxidize unlike most of the BB creams. The finish color is basically the same color you see. Even though it looks bit light, it works on me the best b/c it has yellow undertone.
Tony moly BB cream is the most moisturizing one out of the three ( and most BB creams I tried before) However, it doesn't give dewy finish even though it feels moisturizing. I am thinking this will be most used during the winter when my skin is at the driest.
