I was planning to have this Pre-ordered in one of the local onlineshops:

It really caught my attention. It was LOVE at first sight. ♥_♥

Since it isn’t available in the local etude house branches, I’m actually hunting for this in the online shops who carry preorder products from Korea. :)

Until one day…

On the Spotlight►Etude House’s Happy Essential Foam in Hyaluronic Acid

Last July 2012, Etude House released a new line of cleansing foam called Happy Essential Cleansing Foam which claims to be the improved version of our first love..Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam. 

The newest line of cleansing foam comes in 5 variants namely Hyaluronic Acid (blue), Vitamin C (yellow), Collagen (pink), Witch Hazel (gray) fresh foam, and White Clay (white) fresh foam. The pink, blue and yellow variants called “Essential Foam” has 40% concentration while the gray and white ones called “Fresh Foam” contains 30% concentration. 

Each tube containing 150 ml costs Php 228.00 and is now available in any Etude House branch.

I got mine in Hyaluronic Acid.. :)

But what is Hyaluronic Acid? 

Here are some researches to help us know more about its benefits:

DEFINITION

Hyaluronic acid, also known as HA, is a natural compound found in skin that has many important functions, including holding in moisture, providing cushioning, aiding in tissue repair, holding together the skin structural components collagen and elastin, and helping create a protective barrier against microorganisms.

MOISTURIZING

Since hyaluronic acid holds moisture well—holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water—it is a commonly used component in moisturizers. In these moisturizers, it functions not only to deliver water to the skin, but also to hold it there. As a large molecule, it doesn’t permeate deep into the skin, but instead stays near the surface where it moisturizes the skin surface layers.

Hyaluronic Acid Skin Care Applications

Due to the pronounced role of Hyaluronic Acid in anti-aging therapy, HA is being used extensively for various skin care applications. Consequently, many ‘Night Repair’ and ‘Skin Rejuvenation’ formulations make use of Hyaluronic Acid.

For more than 50 years, researchers have been probing into the skin care applications of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) along with its health care applications. Because of its magical attributes, HA is sometimes referred to as the ‘key to the fountain of youth’ and the ‘next generation anti aging therapy.’ The most revolutionary finding in Hyaluronic Acid skin care has been its efficacy in hydrating the skin to alleviate wrinkles and fine lines and other signs of aging.

Ooooh! Loads of info we got there.. yeah, I’m convinced! I prolly get Hyaluronic Acid! :))

When it rains, it pours. ^_^

WARNING! ☺ WARNING! ☺ WARNING!: Photo-heavy post! :D

For the HAUL month of July ^^,

It’s been raining for the whole month of July. When it rains, it pours. As for me, it’s been raining with blessings. I haven’t been blogging so much due to my neverending teacher stuff so since the classes is suspended today, I tried to make the most out of it!

For this post, I’ll be sharing with you all the blessings (material ones :D) I received from God. This is in no way bragging about the things I have coz I’m pretty sure you have better ones, I just want to share it with you lovelies.

So let’s START! Ü

1st of July marks our 38th month so here’s a monthsary gift from him. Tony Moly’s Appletox. Been wanting to have this since I got my Tomatox, which happened to be a monthsary gift too. I love how Tony Moly wrapped it in a box with a blue ribbon together with the freebies.

Again and again, a haul is not a haul without Etude House..

For this month, here are the babies added to my collection:

Juicy Cocktail Gradation nails, Orgel light eyeliner brush, repurchased my super fave Easy Brow Pencil and Surprise Me Essence Concealer and got the Shini Metal case GWP. I also bought some online goodies from Kkochi Pida :) got the facial foams for only Php250 each.. also got the cutesy curlformers, AC clinic powder spot patch intense and my most awaited Shini Star BB lotion which is absolutely “to die for!” I love it to bits!! I want moore! Finally I’m using this everyday! :P

Charmaine of Kkochi Pida is just the most generous girl when it comes to freebies. thank you! ♥

Last week I dropped by Etude House SMF to get my prize and upon entering the store, this newbie caught my attention— Happy essential foam in Hyaluronic Acid. I just love anything with Hyaluronic Acid, I always use Tony Moly’s Natural Pulp Essence sheet mask in Hyaluronic Acid. This cleansing foam deserves a product review coz I’m really loving it for a week now.

Glitter Glamour *_*

eow phowsz! >.< LOL.

I’m back with a nail art tonight. :)

Featuring Etude House’s Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nails #05 BR301..

tadaaaaah!~

(photo credits: http://etudehouse.ph/plist.aspx?pcode=allnew)

after some serious attempts, here’s what I got.. :D

it looks so fancy.. I’m not so sure if I did it the right way but I loved the results anyway, :) 

(sorry for my brawny hands >.<)

The SA said I can use two coats of the second color but I just use one so it doesn’t stand out among the three layers.

I should’ve made the top layer (gold glitters) thinner but I just couldn’t do it coz I have short nails and it’s hard to control. 

I topped it with Etude House’s Jelly top coat.. hence, the bulky nails. :P (4 layers all in all.. I skipped the base coat already)

It took two weeks before they chipped off.. not bad for something with glitters and all the stuff. :))

How bout you? What’s your NOTW? 

XOXO,

kuRn :>

What’s Inside my Makeup Bag? ♥

Hello Philippines! and Hello World! «—- Pbb teens? XD

oh well, after an era of not having any blog post., I am finally back once again. :D

I am so confused what to blog about—my summer escapades? my skin malgeum review? my urban decay naked palette makeup tutorial? my recent hauls? my blog anniversary? my blog giveaway? and many many many more!!

So tonight, while i’m still enjoying my 38 degree-fever and my severe cough and colds, I choose to tell you a story about the petty things I keep inside my makeup bag.. definitely not one of those things mentioned above. :P

This post is influenced by Etude House Philippines recent (and I think ongoing contest: What’s Inside my makeup bag?)

What’s Inside My Make Up Bag? :))

Here it is….. :O

Some of my most favorite etude house makeup products are:

♥ Baby Skin Veiling Pact

♥ My Wish Cheek

♥ Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk lippies and Wanna Be Lipstick in So Chic Beige

♥ Surprise Me Essence Concealer

♥ Solo eye shadows

♥ Easy Drawing Pencil and Color my brows

I rarely use my BB cream.. and when I say rarely, it’s like..for special occasions such as proms, graduation ceremonies, anniversaries? and birthdays. My BB cream is not even half way its content…oh hello expiration date within the next 6 mos. :(

My everyday life has always been like a marathon in the Amazing Race reality show. I never woke up from bed without saying..”Oh my gosh,late na ko!!!”

15-20 minutes in the shower, a sip of hot milk chocolate or coffee, brush my teeth, dress up as fast as a magician..aaaand, do my makeup inside the tricycle.. aaaamazing!!!~ powder, blusher, lip balm while on my way to school.

5 minutes before I go to the classroom, I define my brows and put on lipstick. ola!

That’s the very classic me,. makeup in a rush! haha!

So, I don’t have time to put on bb creams that would take minutes to blend with my skin tone, eyeliners that would take an hour of precision (well, at least for me who’s a noob at making straight eye lines) and of course not even the basic eye makeup.. booooo!~ :((

I try to change lippies every other day, just to use them all and not to let them just die of natural death.

I cannot go on a day without defining my brows. A year ago, a don’t give a damn about my eyebrows, but now they were like my no. 1 indicator that I have good makeup. I can go without powder nor any lip product and even without combing my hair just as long as I have defined brows. lol. It’s just that I feel that having defined brows changes a lot in my face, it frames my face and gives me an “all-set” look. So whether I’m late for my class or too early for it, I always find time to wear that perfect set of brows. 

Another important thing that I always have with me is my Baby Skin Veiling powder which is like a baby powder in a pact..I loooove it to the pans! too bad it’s already phased-out :(

It’s a long list, and I have an online class already..for the reasons why I love those lippies above, kindly check my previous posts about it. hihi! 

That’s all for now lovelies! ^_^

XOXO,

kuRn :>
