REVIEW: Nature Republic 92% Aloe Vera Soothing and Moisture Gel

Winter was tough on my skin so became the reason i purchased this product! This is a crazy best seller in Korea and i can see why! The giant tub goes such a long with with such a long way, definitely value for your money! The product lists 8 ways to use this product:

  1. Instant moisturiser for dry skin
  2. Makeup primer
  3. Body moisturising 
  4. Hair treatment, aloe has been scientifically to improve the condition of your hair and scalp, promoting hair growth!
  5. After shave gel
  6. Nail care essence 
  7. Face mask and gel for sun burns
  8. Relax swollen eyes and lip care
I can say the product lives up to the above 8 uses, besides the moisturiser perhaps. Well for me, winter was incredibly drying and nothing i used was moisturising enough during the time. 

I think it worked the best for sun burns! I never get sun burnt but i guess Australian summer weather can be so harsh, i received my first sun burn in years a few weeks ago. this product gives such a cooling relief and temporary sooth to the area!

I have been using this product religiously every day or so for the past few months and just over half is still left! just the tiniest amount goes a long way, i love products like this because you know you get your money's worth!

Overall 4.5/5

Will i repurchase? YESS!

REVIEW: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade and Brow Wiz

I am in love love love!!!! These two products definitely live up to the hype without too much spent!

Brow Wiz
I bought this product in ash blonde/ taupe and it is amazing! I use it to outline my eyebrows.

Dipbrow Pomade
I bought this product in blonde to match my hair right now! I use it to fill in the brows after using the brow wiz.

Both these products are:

  • VERY natural looking
  • even if you have black as hell eyebrows like mine it blends so well
  • very little goes a long way
  • extremely pigmented so once again a very light hand and the finest amount will give you angel goddess brows!
  • worth so much more than the price
These two products are definitely my holy grails! I have to do my brows every day with these now because i feel like its gives so much more structure to my face. They do say brows frame your face! Even if you wear no makeup with only Anastasia on your brows you'll feel 10000x more confident!

Overall: infinity / 5

I definitely WILL repurchase when i run out of these products. These have definitely reached the top of my beauty/ makeup collection! EVERYONE IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR BROWS YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO PURCHASE THESE, ITLL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER ^____________^ 

Just look how great my brows look from the photo above ^_^

REVIEW: Etude House Correct and Care ( CC ) Cream in Glow

I bought the cc cream in #2 glow because of its 8 in 1multi functions! These are:
  • anti-aging
  • stress relief
  • hydration
  • whitening
  • sun protection
  • tone-up
  • smooth texture
  • luminosity
I bought this to use as a primer under my foundation because the winter weather had made my skin so harsh and dry and because of its SPF 30/PA++ 

Honestly i don't like it. 

  1. Contrary to what it says, it doesn't quite adjust to your skin tone. Well it kind of does but it leaves a white cast that is really noticeable. There are tiny beads in the cream that i guess when blended out with the cream adjusts to your skin colour, but not enough for my tan. I think that was the glow effect or dewiness the product was suppose to promote. Perhaps its because i'm too tanned which is a problem for me when it comes to Korean CC and BB creams, as well as foundation. They don't have my shade. However, i could see how it could work for pale skin tones, it'll blend out really nicely and leave a nice dewy looking finish. 
  2. The product is really rough to spread around the face. you need to apply quite some pressure,            and compares nothing to how smooth a moisturiser is.
  3. Did not provide any hydration to me. It emphasised my dry patches instead!
  4. How did this provide stress relief srsly? It would be safe to say it actually gave me stress =_=
I do think its great in the aspect of neutralising red tones. It lets me feel less conscious about my flaws because it does seems to even out my skin tone.

At the end of the day, i wouldn't purchase the cream again. It didn't match up to half of my expectations.

Overall, 2/5

REVIEW: MAC Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze

My first product from MAC! This bronzer definitely sold me on why MAC products are so popular. The quality of this product is amazing.

It doesn't go on patchy or uneven but very evenly, which has been a problem for me in cheaper bronzers. Looks amazing natural and is super matte. Its perfect for my slightly tan, asian skin tone and doesn't appear orange on the skin at all.

Staying power is crazy, it lasts all day even through my end of day gym sessions when I'm sweating bullets. If it doesn't melt slip and slide around my face at all! This is probably one of two products in my makeup collection i would repurchase, which is amazing for me as i am very picky and love trying new products once I'm finished with one.

This product has definitely been added to my holy grail of makeup products.

I rate 10/10

only con: why do you have to be so expensive :'(
