Botanics face balm and cleanser

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. 
(you can order at Target website here or  Boots online here)

Out of the three product, I am least fond of this product. It's a Deep Clean Mousse for dry skin.

Bed bath and Beyond haul

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
Rose water
( 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
(it looks lot more paler in person, sort of dusty rose color)

sample testing # ONE_ dr. brandt dark spot no more

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)

Searching for a makeup vanity/storage?

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.

h&m and forever 21

Everything is from H&m except the brass color bracelet on top and the one in the middle.

bb cream review number one

 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.
