I started researching Korean cosmetics more and more, and one of the brands I decided to try was Missha. Today I am writing about one product of this brand that has absolutely delighted me, I will tell you that right away.
I’m talking about Missha UV Pore Blur Starter SPF50 + PA ++++, a primer that blurs the pores and mattifies the skin, it also acts like a sunscreen. It really does what it promises – it fills the pores and mattifies the face, while protecting against the harmful rays of the sun. This is the only SPF product that I have tried that it doesn’t look oily on the skin without even a slight shedding after application.
Today I’m talking about the EcoTools makeup brushes set which contains five makeup brushes and a brush holder. Each brush is very multifunctional and it’s possible to create an entire makeup look with only these five brushes.
This is an EcoTools Start The Day Beautifully set of brushes made from bamboo, recycled aluminum and plastic. All products of this brand are vegan and cruelty free and can be recycled, which is a big plus for the environment and animals. Makeup brushes come in a storage container, there’s also a card with three makeup looks that can serve as an inspiration.
-Full Powder Brush-
It’s intended for the application of powder products such as setting powder, blush and bronzer. The hairs are soft and thick, picking up the full pigmentation of the product that is applied to the face. The brush blends the product very nicely, leaving no harsh lines on the skin.
How many times have you had products in your collection that you don’t remember when you bought them or how old they are? Are you confused about the name of the ingredients and don’t know which ones are good and which to avoid? I provided a list of useful sites and apps that could benefit both men and women.
If you want to learn more about ingredients in skincare, I suggest the SkinCarisma page. You can search for a specific product there in the search bar and see all the ingredients within seconds. If a product is not available, you can find the ingredients yourself and enter them in the Cosmetic Analyzer section. In both cases, you will see all the ingredients and an explanation of what the ingredients are, how they affect the particular skin type and whether they are good or harmful. This site has helped me many times in choosing a product, it’s a real gem.
I believe that we have all at least once found ourselves in a situation where we do not remember how long we have a product and whether it is even safer to use. The CheckFresh page can check this for you. On this page, you can check the manufacturing date by batch number to determine how old a product is.
Gucci Bloom comes in a package that looks a lot like a classic perfume, but it’s a hair mist. It’s gentle and will not dry out your hair, it can be used several times throughout the day and the scent will not be overpowering. It’s best to use it on freshly washed and dried hair, because then the hair absorbs the scent best.
The fragrance consists of a combination of jasmine and tuberose to give a fresh and floral note, there is also an Indian Rangoon Creeper that gives a powdery note. At first it feels strong and sensual, but at the same time powdery and gentle. As it stays longer on the hair, the perfume turns into a floral powdery scent that simply exudes elegance.
Gucci Bloom hair mist can also be used as a body perfume, which I often tend to do. I just like this powdery scent, and the big plus is that it doesn’t dry out my hair. If I apply it on freshly washed and dried hair, I can smell a gentle scent in my hair for a long time . Five hours after application – my hair still smells after this hair mist.
The face cream I currently like to use is The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA. This is a cream with hyaluronic acid and various amino acids, it protects the skin barrier and moisturizes the skin very well. It also contains urea and glycerin, ingredients that give the skin moisture and promote skin hydration.
I like to use it in the morning, it absorbs very quickly and prepares the skin for applying makeup. It makes a really nice and non-oily base for liquid foundation, it leaves no residue on the skin and it’s completely unnoticeable. The skin looks and feels moisturized. It’s an oil-free formula, but it doesn’t mattify the skin – it leaves a light glow on the skin. The formula looks thick, but when in contact with the skin, it turns into a light and creamy, easy to apply texture.
I use face masks two to three times a week. Sometimes these are classic wash-off masks and sometimes I reach for sheet masks. It all depends on how much time I have and if I have time for the whole procedure of putting on a sheet mask, then I choose a classic mask.
A few years ago, I only used clay masks and masks that would remove excess oil from my face. Now my facial skin is no longer that oily, so most often I choose moisturizing masks. Sometimes I also need some purifying mask, during those days of the month, so it’s good to have one of those on hand as well.
You must have heard that Makeup Revolution has launched a new sister skincare brand called Revolution Skincare. They have a wide range of products, from a variety of acids and serums, to sprays and face masks. I chose two face masks for testing, and now you can read my impressions. I noticed that a lot of face masks contain alcohol, so be careful when choosing.
Women’s Day is almost here and you still don’t know what to give to you better half? You are in the right place, I have some cute gift ideas that will cheer up every woman that receives it.
Notino, as always, delights with its range of gifts, and Women’s Day is an ideal opportunity to treat someone dear to you. Cosmetics and makeup are always a good choice when it comes to gifts for women, that’s a fact. Plus, women love flowers and chocolate, you certainly won’t go wrong with these two. A gift does not have to be expensive, it’s best when it comes from the heart and it’s really thoughtful.
Using toners has been a crucial part of my skin care routine for years. I apply it with a cotton pad on a cleansed skin, then I’m sure my skin is clean and ready to apply the rest of the my skin care. I currently use a glycolic acid toner, and you can find out more about it below.
Glycolic acid is one of the AHA (alpha hydroxy) acids and provides a very gentle exfoliation of the skin, eliminating dead skin cells which results in a more radiant and cleaner complexion. It can be found in a variety of products, and it’s most commonly recommended for people with acne as it can reduce scarring and promote skin cells renewal. With the use of glycolic acid, as well as any exfoliating acid, it’s recommended to apply a sunscreen to avoid skin damage due to sun exposure.
I received a Pixi Glow Tonic as a gift and could hardly wait to start using it. I haven’t used glycolic acid so far, so initially I only used this toner 2-3 times a week. That was enough to see if I’ll have any reactions to this product, now I use it every day and mostly in the evenings. I noticed that my face was clearer and the complexion was more beautiful and even. The occurrence of small pimples has decreased and stubborn blackheads started disappearing in some places.
I’ve been practicing double cleansing for years now. That way I am sure I have removed all the makeup and impurities from my face at the end of the day. When the skin is well cleaned, all other skin care products work better and absorb into the skin with ease.
What exactly is double cleansing? The first step in double facial cleansing is to remove makeup with makeup removing products like oil balms, micellar water or milk. The second step is to wash the face with water based products which will further cleanse the face and prepare for the application of skin care. This method of facial cleansing removes all the layers of product you have on your skin, as well as the oil, dead skin cells and impurities that have accumulated on the skin throughout the day.
I have created a simple makeup look that you can create for celebrating Valentine’s Day using only a few products. I will also leave a list of all the products I used to reach this look down below.
Lately I’ve been loving these natural looks that are so simple and emphasize natural beauty. I have a minimal amount of foundation on my face, just enough to even out the complexion and make it easier to apply other products. I love the fact that the skin is visible under the foundation and that is why I always give preference to skin care because makeup always looks better on healthy and beautiful skin.
