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.


  • It really is gentle as it claims. Would recommend for people with sensitive skin. 
  • It is cheap. It retails for about $6 at
  • 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. 

Find the product here:

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:
  • I also met another Korean beauty youtuber there. Her name is Sunny and she looks like a doll! Her channel:
  • 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:

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.

Hi, Guys!

I am pretty happy with the products I received this month, especially Birchbox!

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 


  • 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 

  • 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 

  • 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.
