Empties


1. Clinique All About Eyes rich eye cream $31-51.50
One of my favorite eye creams is Kiehl's Creamy eye treatment with avocado, but I'm open to trying other eye creams too. That's way I picked up this one from Clinique to use during the fall and winter. I was impressed with the rich formula and how well it absorbed. It claims to combat dark circles, puffiness, and under eye shadows while being very moisturizing. It's hard to say if my dark circles or shadows were diminished because of this, but they weren't exacerbated. Overall, I was happy with this purchase and would recommend this to someone who is looking for an eye cream. (However, I'd also recommend the Kiehl's one too since I keep on repurchasing that one.) 

2. Nature Republic Snail Solution 70 essence $29.98
I don't really have anything bad to say about this product, except that some people might find the texture too sticky. When using a product that contains snail mucus it's best to use it until it's empty, because otherwise you won't see the long term results. This product helped contribute to my skin's ability to regenerate and heal from some hormonal acne. There could be other products out there containing snail mucus that are better than this one- but this one was fine for my sensitive skin and for people curious about snail mucus this could be a good place to start. 

3. Innisfree Super Volcanic pore clay mask $13.14
I'm sad that I'm out of this. If you want here are some quick thoughts I had about it: click
PS. Boyfriends like using it too as long as you don't tell their friends.


4. Banila Co. It Radiant CC Cream $26
CC cream stands for color correcting cream or color control cream, and CC creams are like the younger sister to BB cream (BB standing for blemish balm or beauty balm). CC creams provide less coverage than BB creams and often contain color changing technology (they are white and then subtly adjust to your skin tone) and boast skin benefits such as tone correction, brightening, lightening, or whitening, as well as SPF. Many Koreans use CC cream alone or as a make up base. This CC cream by Banila Co. is one of the most popular CC creams out there. The product itself has a BB cream texture and could even be mistaken for a thick moisturizer. As I mentioned, the coverage is sheer and it just evens out your skin tone- but won't necessarily get rid of all redness. The finish is also quite dewy so it's important to not have any dry patches on your face, because this will bring attention to those areas. Overall, I really enjoyed this CC cream on days when I felt I didn't need much coverage and wanted some SPF protection throughout the day. I was also impressed with how long the product lasted me.
