Are cute things only for children? & Review Kakao Friends Hand Cream

It comes in a cute packaging with the picture of Ryan — my favorite Kakao Friends character. It's Kakao Friends Coconut & Shea Butter Hand Cream. The best thing in Korea is that cute things are not only for children but for adults as well. I bet that a hand cream with the scent of banana milk and a picture of a cute bear is something we all need to take care of our hands — and for fun as well. After travelling in East Asia for a year I can tell that there is a huge difference in one thing compared to western countries — cute things are extremely popular and common from Korea to Taiwan. I always knew it and was familiar with the fact that East Asia has all those cute soft toys, food, characters, clothes, accessories, pets and everything you can only imagine. But the fact when I first time entered Shanghai 2016 and actually saw all the things they had was shocking. Everywhere even in the nearest convenience store, you found something adorable or cute. In Finland the only cute ch…

Korean emulsion for mature skin - Intense Care Gold 24K Snail Emulsion

I'm still young so my skin doesn't need something extremely firming and anti-aging. But many people do and I want to share reviews about products for all different skin types. So today's post is written based on older person's experiences about TonyMoly's Intense Care Gold 24K Snail Emulsion.

How does it work? This emulsion is for all the skin types but especially for mature skin due to its anti-aging properties. Emulsion is a thinner lotion which is used to seal in the other skincare products so it's applied after them.

One great fact is, that it actually contains pure gold which strengthens the vitality of skin. So you can literally apply gold on your face! How to use 1. Clean your face 2. Apply toner, serum, sheet mask etc. and the last emulsion to seal in other products 3. Take a pea-sized amount and pat ge…

You have probably heard about snail creams made of snail mucus. Cream made of those slimy creatures' mucus sounds pretty gross, right?

Especially the Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream from Missha which is made 70% of snail slime extract.

Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist TONYMOLY Review

I just wonder how can so many things be cute, beautiful or lovely in Korea? In Finland we have only Moomins and Angry birds. Yeap, they are from Finland. Sometimes I feel Korean people just know how to combine cutiness and beauty. As I have previously reviewed TonyMoly products, I would like to preview one more cutie pie on today's post! It's called Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist. What does it do? The mist is skin-balancing and makes your facial skin refreshed. It's also oil-controlling so you don't have to worry about oily face during the day. The sleek mist provides hydration for your skin and long-lasting makeup. One bottle contains 60 ml of mist. How to use it? You can you use it to set the makeup or just to add glow on your face. Just open the lid and spray 2-3 squirts onto your face 15-20 cm away from your face. Pat the skin gently after applying. The bottle is reusable and the bottle size is great for example travelling! Ingredients

As you can see, sheet masks are getting more and more popular all around the world now— though in Korea and Asia they have been part of normal skincare routine for a long time. Sheet masks came originally from South Korea, the top country of skincare and beauty products. Today I would like to share some facts about sheet masks and review of TonyMoly's great masks.
