The popular Korean primer — TONYMOLY Egg Silky Smooth Balm

TonyMoly is known from their cute animal and fruit themed packages. TonyMoly arrived to the Nordics 1st of September what gives a reason for a preview of one of their popular products: Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm which is one of the most popular Korean primers due to its cheap price and well known golden egg shaped jar. Silky smooth balm manages the excess sebum and make skin to look smoother by making pores less visible. It gives semi-matte finish which makes your skin ideal for makeup to last the whole day beautiful. It also absorbs the oiliness away so your skin looks less shiny but still natural. You can also use the product alone without applying any makeup. I love this product because it comes with super cute jar and it has lovely lemon scent. It looks like something edible (even tho it's not) and the texture is typical primer. The main ingredients are egg white and oil controlling herbal complex (Burdock, Lemon, Hop, Peppers, Sylvia, Soap Gras). The egg white removes dead ski…

The best Korean eyeliner

Everyone who uses makeup knows the feeling of an eyeliner which always gets smeary and fades out until the evening is even nearby — or the eyeliner which is impossible to apply because of the bad and too thick brush. I have experiences all those until I found the best Korean eyeliner which is pure gold: Clio Waterproof Kill Black eyeliner. Clio is a Korean brand which is known for their innovative quality and great pigments in their makeup products. I used to love to apply eyeliner almost everyday and found out that the ones with brush or pen are the most suitable for my eyelids. This pen eyeliner is great because it has deep black pigment and the pen is also thin to get beautiful and precise result. It's also waterproof and it lasts the whole day without getting smeary. This product goes well with Etude House Curl Fix Mascara
As you can see the eyeliner looks like a marker pen. There are Clio eyeliners with the pen and brush nibs. Even though the nib in the pen one is thicker tha…

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

Ok, so I primarily wanted to have this product because of the adorable name and the cute pig. But there is also a story behind why I ended up getting this one! When living in Korea last spring, I was paying and ordinary visit to a supermarket called Homeplus and I was having some free time. I wandered around at the cosmetic section and some Korean woman who was working there asked me to see some of their products. I was actually trying the lipsticks — and asked if there are any nice masks for acne scars. Without hesitating she took some bottle, opened it and put the product on my hand. I saw some thick grey stuff which started to make bubbles. WOW! Bubbles, so cool! I thought. And after rinsing it off my hands were soft as a cute little pig. It made funny bubbles so here I am with my Milky Piggy Bubble Clay Mask. Happy and confident to review this product. When you open the jar it's full of the thick grey cream I told you about. It smells like clay and it looks like — not so beau…

My acne story and how to get rid of acne scars — Rohto Melano CC

I tell you a story which affected my life and skincare routines dramatically. I have never had perfect skin but neither super bad one. But when I entered Hong Kong 2017 for model work I got my first serious acne breakout on my cheeks what made my self-esteem extremely low. I felt that when I finally got the chance of my life it was ruined right away with horrible blemishes and ugly scars. I didn't know what was going on and I tried lot of different ways to get rid of it. I tried my best to eat healthily, minimize eating meat and alcohol, wheat, dairy and greasy food — but the healthy diet helped only very very little. I also bought some special acne skincare products like benzoyl peroxide which helped only instantly making my skin super dry. I felt frustrated after trying many ways to get rid of acne so I searched more information and came to conclusion that I had hormonal acne. I got medicine for that, got rid of the acne and felt relieved — still having extremely red and ugly s…

Beautiful eyelashes with the best Korean mascara

Have you ever wondered how some people have those amazing beautiful long eyelashes? Probably they just have eyelash extensions or great genetics. Nobody decides what kind of eyelashes they get when they were born, neither me — I have probably the most light colored and thin eyelashes. But I believe that good products can turn even the thinnest and shortest eyelashes beautiful. So I gave a try to Etude House's Curl Fix Mascara which is often said to be one of the bests Korean mascaras! Let's see what kind of magic this product holds inside. The bottle is simple — stylish black with some white text. When you open it you can see the slightly curved brush. The texture of the mascara is pretty thick and the color I use is pitch black. This mascara is available also in brown and plum colors. How to use: 1. Curl your lashes with Etude House Perm Fix Curler (read the review here!) 2. Take the brush out and wipe the excessive product off 3. Start with the shorter bristles and comb the …
