Review: Garnier Clean Plus Sensitive Skin Makeup Removing Cleanser Lotion

Hi, Guys!
Today, I have a review on the new makeup removing product from Garnier.
I have been using Garnier Clean Plus Sensitive Skin Makeup Removing Cleanser for almost a month now. I have a pretty solid thoughts on it and I thought I'll share my view with you guys.

Pros:

  • It really is gentle as it claims. Would recommend for people with sensitive skin. 
  • It is cheap. It retails for about $6 at Walmart.com
Cons:
  • It doesn't remove eye makeup as it claims. 
  • Double cleansing necessary. It leaves the skin feeling slippery otherwise. 
Final thought: 
It's definitely a product that won't hurt your wallet to give it a try. I would definitely recommend this product to someone with a sensitive skin. I would probably repurchase this product sometime in the future.

Watch my video:

I was actually sent this product from Cosmopolitan Latina Magazine. I am not Latina (I am Korean), but I am subscribed to Cosmopolitan and they sometimes send an issue of the Cosmopolitan Latina along with the regular Cosmopolitan. I think they were collecting thoughts on the product.

Daily Bits:

  • Omg I went to Ssinnim's (씬님) meet and greet today at YouTube Space in NY. She is a Korean beauty youtuber (for those of you who are not familiar with her). She was amazing! Her channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/Hines382
  • I also met another Korean beauty youtuber there. Her name is Sunny and she looks like a doll! Her channel:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxM21Vv4bWq106MxIPvrGQw/featured
  • I also filmed a video getting ready for the meet and greet, so hopefully that will go up sometime next week. Though, I wasn't super happy with the makeup. 
  • While I was waiting for a train after the meet up, I encounter a most annoying group of tourist ever! They were talking very loudly, singing something, and making baby noises. Also, two people from the group were playing with my hair. I mean, who plays with stranger's hair?

Unboxing: Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2015

Hi, Guys!

Today, I am sharing the content of my Walmart Beauty Box for Spring 2015.
Walmart Beauty Box is a subscription box from Walmart. It is relatively new and is delivered every season (4 times a year). The box itself cost nothing, but the shipping is $5. Basically, the box is $5.
Check out the box here: https://beautybox.walmart.com/


Inside the box: 
  • Essence Ultimate Omega Repair & Moisture Shampoo (Travel Size) - I never heard or seen anything about this brand, so I was surprised to see this brand in the box. 
  • Essence Ultimate Omega Repair & Moisture Conditioner (Travel Size) 
  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser (Sample Size) - I am running very low on my current facial cleanser, so I am glad for this product. I can get at least couple of use out of it before I have time to pick up a new facial cleanser. Though, I never tried a facial cleanser from Neutrogena before. 
  • Dove Go Fresh Nutrium Moisture in Mandarin & Tiare Flower Scent (Travel Size) - This body wash smells really good. I love anything citrus scent, so I am in love with it ! 
  • Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in 001 Black (Full Size) - I haven't tried too many Rimmel mascara, so this is a good addition to the box for me. I probably won't open it for a while though, since I have way too many mascaras opened right now. 
  • Lady Gaga Fame Perfume (Sample Size) - Perfume samples are not my favorite to get in these type of boxes, because I tend to not use them. This one smells pretty nice though. 
That was it for actual products in this box. I got a different coupons for makeup and body and hair care. Some of these coupons included foil packets or texture samples. 

Overall Thoughts: 
Overall, I thought this box wasn't a bad deal for just $5. The Rimmel mascara itself probably covers the cost of the box. However, one thing that I am not happy about this service, is that so far the three boxes they delivered included a sample of shampoo and conditioner. I wish they stopped sending a sample of shampoo and conditioner and included something else. Also, I think this season's box didn't have any one thing that won me over the box. 

Daily Bits: 
  • I went for  a brain MRI yesterday. It was one of the weirdest medical exam I had so far. The noise that the machines makes is so nerve wracking. 
  • I finally got my hands on two of Rimmel Provocalips and I have been loving it! 
  • My left ring fingernail has been weird ever since the infection. I hate how it looks with a nail polish on. 
  • I am planning to dye my hair within 2 weeks. The only thing is that I am not sure what color I want.

Birchbox and Ipsy March 2015

Hi, Guys!
I wanted to share what I received from my Birchbox and Ipsy this month.
This month, both of their theme seemed to be a fit for Spring.
I am pretty happy with the products I received this month, especially Birchbox!

Birchbox and Ipsy is $10 a month beauty subscription service. Each month they send you 4-5 sample/deluxe sized, and sometimes a full sized products. It is a great way to try new or different products.

Review: Pura D'or Shampoo, Conditioner & Oil

Hi, Guys !
It's been a while since I had written any post here. I have been feeling a bit down and schoolwork has been overwhelming me these days.

Anyway, today I'll be reviewing a shampoo, conditioner and oil from a brand called Pura D'or. I had these products for about a month now, so I feel like I can really share my thoughts on these.


pura d'or Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo 

Claims: 

  • Prevents Hair Loss 
  • Strengths Hair 
  • Add Volume 
  • All Natural and Organic 
  • Vitamins for Hair Growth 
  • Paraben, SLS, and Gluten free 
  • 12 DHT Blockers  
My thoughts:
  • I did not really notice any result from this shampoo. Recently, I have been losing more hair than before, so I was hoping for some result. However, I was left disappointed. 
  • The shampoo doesn't lather up much. I like shampoo that lather up a lot, so I didn't like the fact that it barely later ups. 
  • No strong scent. 
  • Will not purchase 
pura d'or Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner, Lavender Vanilla 

Claims:
  • 99% Vegetable based ingredients 
  • Manage Frizz 
  • Enhances Shine 
  • Argan Oil Based 
  • Paraben, Sulfate, Gluten free
My Thoughts: 
  • I did not notice any change in my hair after using this product.
  • The scent of lavender vanilla lasts quite some time. I did not find the scent offensive at all. 
  • I probably will not purchase this either. 
Pure and Organic Argan Oil 

Claims: 
  • Diminishes Wrinkles 
  • Stimulate Skin Cells 
  • Reduces Appearance of Scaring and Stretch Marks
  • Creates Softer Smooth Skin 
  • Reliefs for Eczema and Psoriasis
  • Restores Nutrient Content to Skin Cells
  • Helps Repair Damaged Hair
My Thoughts: 
  • There is no noticeable scent, at least for me. 
  • It makes my face feel super smooth. It has made into my skin care routine. 
  • However, it doesn't do much for my hair. I have really damaged hair due to frequent coloring. My hair texture is very rough and tons and tons of split ends. 
I think this will be a brand and products for you if you are looking for cruelty free, all natural hair stuff. The products rage around $25-$35. They are not a horrible products. Even though, I didn't see much result with the shampoo or the conditioner, that is usually the case with any shampoo and conditioner I use. I usually just choose them based on the scent, since I usually don't see any result from any of them anyway. (Wow I feel like that sentence have way to many 'any' in it!). However, I do really like the argan oil from this brand.

My Go To Make Up!

Hi, Guys!
I fee like it's been forever since I posted on the blog for some reason.
I have been busy cleaning my room recently.
It was very messy and disorganized, but now it's starting to come along.
I still need to organize my clothing, but I think other than that, it's coming along.
My plan is to organize my clothes today and work on organizing my photos on my phone, and factory reset it. My phone has been spazzing lately, and the Verizon people told me that it should be ok once I reset it.

Anyway, I wanted to share my go to makeup look.
This is the look that I always go back to if I don't know what I want to do that day.
However, I do switch up my look time to time, and I do try some looks that I am inspired by.


I am really happy with how this video turned out.
I know that YouTube is full of really amazing and talented people, but I am still learning makeup and editing.
I hope you guys enjoyed this video!
What are your go to makeup look?
