\(♡♡)/☆ Etude House 大好き! Mini-Haul!

Ok. Today I received a parcel which I have been waiting for for agggggeeees. It's just one of the downfalls of living a long, long way away from Korea and China, where all my cosmetics come from.:(

So, here is what I got.

1. This is an AMAZING product which I was so excited about receiving  It's Etude House Pink Candy Cake perfume balm. Honestly, this is the ideal scent for me, it's fruity (not really sweet, to be honest) but it is very girly, lasts for ages and has a nice shimmer to the balm. If you like fruity, cool, sweet scents, this is a must-have item.

2. I haven't actually tried these yet, but I thought the packaging of Etude House's charcoal chin pack was so cute I just wanted to include a little picture of it. So that's that. I will talk about it after I've used it...

3. I had to include these, because they really are the most amazing products. I dn't even know where to begin when it comes to Victoria's Secret cosmetics and body care, because the amazingness of it overwhelms me. I was in heaven in the store, and I honestly took almost an hour smelling every body cream they had in stock. I knew warm & cozy was good anyway, but this warm and sweet smell is a big, big winner. I am almost scared to use it because I don't want it to run out. On another note, I have added VS's Glow eau de parfum to my Christmas list, because it's the nicest perfume I have ever smelled.

4. Ok, very important number 4. Etude House's Skin Malgem. My skin has been really problematic recently because it's really cold here in England, and also I have a stupid work load and I'm really stressed. So I bought this to see if it calmed down my skin and got rid of some stubborn spots. I am going to give it a week or so to see if it works. So that is in the pipeline.

I have another delivery of haircare products coming tomorrow so I will write about them soon and keep updating on the Malgem!

SUPER CUTE // Hyper Japan! ハイパージャパン + かわいい!

I went to Hyper Japan yesterday in London. It was really fun, and there was TOO much cute stuff for sale.

I was very careful about what I bought, and there wasn't as many cosmetic items as I would have liked.. In fact, it was a little Otaku-fest, lots of Manga, computer stuff, and ...semi-naked anime girls on bed sheets. ( o^ ^o)

I DID manage to get a Kyary Pamyu Pamyu x Mameshiba coin purse, which was kind of expensive, but worth it, as I think this item is probably quite rare in the UK, so if I keep it boxed away I could potentially have a future winner on my hands.

My eye was drawn to a cute little pink bottle next to all the Kyary stuff... It was a selection of Body Fantasies body mists. They are amazing... I mean, really, amazing. They all smell so good, the packaging is cute, and the smell lasts forever. I can still smell it on my wrist today!

I chose 'Cotton Candy', which is really sweet, just like candy, and has a slight shimmer added to it.

I would recommend this scent to anyone who loves very girly, sweet smells. It's almost like the perfume I used when I was a kid. You can buy the stuff here, and here is the Body Fantasies website.

Review - Holika Holika Bulgarian Rose Petal Skin + Emulsion

Rose petals are good for you!

Holika Holika is another of my favourite Korean brands. The Bulgarian rose line is effective as well as packaged unusually (deep purple is not the classic colour pot for a cosmetic product). So, this stuff really caught my eye.

I have heard good things about rose water, so I was nothing but hopeful about the 20% Bulgarian Rose Water and Rose Essential Oil in this product. 

On a freshly cleansed make up free face, I used Petal Skin by putting a small amount on a cotton pad and gently wiping all over my face and neck. It absorbs into the skin very quickly and creates an extremely fresh, soothed and soft feel to your face. When fully absorbed, I put a very small amount of the emulsion on my finger and gently patted it onto my entire face. It leaves the skin feeling clean, fresh and absorbs quickly.

I have seen a vast improvement in my skin quality after a few days of use. This product has a very natural smell, and soothes irritated and sensitive skin. I would recommend this product to anyone who suffers with spots, open pores and redness.

Be sure to try this product! I got mine from, a great site for Korean cosmetics.
