Product Review: Lioele Vita Shake Pack Kiwi

LIOELE VITA SHAKE PACK KIWI

BRAND: LIOELE
Made in Korea

DESCRIPTION:
  • Dead skin cells are removed gently. Nourished, soft and bright skin is resulted.
  • The fresh fruit ingredients in the pack contain vitamins to help moisturize and give your face a clean, fresh feeling.
  • Kiwi extract control dead skin cells, and Vitamin K brightens skin tone to be fresh and young. 

Another beauty product from Korea that I have discovered: LIOELE
By the way, this is a wash-off type mask.


Korean beauty products are really known for their cute and great packaging!


You can easily tear it without using scissors to open it.


When applied ^ after opening


When spread ^ when applied on face, it will also look like this.


It is like a gel but with clear and jelly-like bits. The smell is quite annoying for me. It smells like a dried paste/glue (the one that we uses for sticking papers).


Can you see the color black one ^ it looks like a Kiwi seed.

THE RESULT?

I love how it leaves my skin so moist and firm! <3 While the mask is on, the mask is easily absorbed by my skin until it became dry. Upon rinsing of the mask, you can feel that there are lots of mask residues on your face so better wash your face thoroughly. The mask is really hydrating on skin, one thing I don't like though is the smell. It doesn't smell like a Kiwi but it smells like a paste/glue. Just don't bother the smell anymore because it will eventually fade after the mask is already spread on your face. Moisture is really very important on our skin, dryness is a super NO-NO ;)
 
HOW TO USE:

Wash your face first. Tear open pack from top slit. Squeeze and get ample amount. Apply it on your face. Wear it for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water.

*The pack is good for 1-2 application/s

Php15.00-20.00

Product Review: Etude House Peel So Good Foam Cleanser Diamond Peel

ETUDE HOUSE PEEL SO GOOD FOAM CLEANSER (DIAMOND PEEL)

Hello Guys! Alright, I know that you are wondering why did I chose to review this product because: 

a.) it's not below Php100
b.) it's not SALE or DISCOUNTED
c.) it's not bought in an auction

But, wait! Come to think of it, isn't my money is worth if I should just try this product rather than regular diamond peels that are offered in the  facial or derma salons?

I've already tried the diamond peeling in a facial salon, and guess what, it costs Php1,500 and that's only for 1 session. They said that you have to complete the 5 sessions until you will see the full results. Whoah! How much is that?! 

After 1 session, I did not return anymore. (Actually me and BF tried it) hahaha...


Glad that there is a new product from Etude House that will make diamond peeling much cheaper and much accessible to use. This is their PEEL SO GOOD FOAM CLEANSER. the difference is this is a foam cleanser unlike in the salons that they are using a machine (like a pen with diamonds in it) 


There are 3 types of their Peel So Good foam cleanser:

 1.Natural Peel(Strength of exfoliation- *) YELLOW
2.Enzyme Peel(Strength of exfoliation- ***) BLUE
3.Diamond Peel(Strength of exfoliation- *****) PINK


Diamond Peel (PINK)-has the highest exfoliator with brightening effect.
 Enzyme Peel (BLUE)-has middle exfoliation with smoothing skin efficacy.
Natural Peel (YELLOW)-has low exfoliation with soothing effect and tightens skin. 


 As usual, the packaging is so cute.. I love pastel colors!


The product is properly sealed.


This is the cap^ and it has a tiny opening.


There are tiny beads, or should I say microbeads inside. I'm not sure if those are the diamonds. The beads are clear and slight rough(unlike other beads that melt in the skin if rubbed) It's really hard to capture the beads here in the camera because they are really tiny.... but you can feel it! 


NOTE: By the way, there are also beads inside and it's color red. It can melt easily when rubbed. Will take picture the next time I'll use this. ;)



THE RESULT?
  • My face became smooth ( maybe because dead skin cells were removed) For me, there's really not much difference when it comes to skin brightening. Maybe because I don't have that much pimples/bumps in my face (knock on wood!) or maybe I need to continue using it to see effective results. ( I have only used this for 3x already)

WHAT I LIKE:
  • It's easy to use
  • Small amount is equals to wider application 
  • It's easy to wash it off
  • the rough beads! thorough exfoliation.

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
  • I hope it can stay on the face much longer.

HOW TO USE?

Apply to wet face and lather. Massage thoroughly  and rinse with warm water.

TIP: Apply moisturizer after using this, your face might get dry after using this.

Use this once-twice a week.
 
Regular Price: Php348
Where to Buy: Etude House click here for branches.
Size/Weight: 130ml

DISCLAIMER: Please test first if you are not allergic to the product. If you have a sensitive skin, consult first your dermatologist. If you experience swell, itching or irritation on skin, immediately stop using the product. Avoid contact with eyes. For external use only.

Product Review: Etude House AC Clinic Clay Pack

ETUDE HOUSE AC CLINIC CLAY PACK

Hello Guys! Bothered by your oily face? Goodbye to oiliness with this Mud Clay Pack from Etude House' AC Clinic Line. Too much oil on your face may also result to pimple/acne, so prevent them now with this once a week application.

Description: Formulated with natural Mud Clay, Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract, AC Clinic Clay Pack nourishes and cleanses facial surface with an oil-free formula by removing facial oil and residues to prevent the onset of acne.

Other AC Clinic line that I reviewed:



 I love the quality of the packaging


This is not a peel off mask, this is a wash off mask


 Koreans do really invest on skincare and cosmetics products, no wonder why they do have beautiful skin.


 Here are the ingredients ^


Most of Etude's products are sealed. I hope other products too in the market!  


 The smell is the same as the AC Clinic Red Spot Balm.


The texture is not thick. When applied to face, a small amount can spread wider. It's not heavy on face and it easily dries up.


 When applied to face ^ I can feel the tightening!


 Already dry and ready to wash it off! So excited with the result :o


~ TADAH! ~

THE RESULT?
  • I have a brighter skin (although it's not a brightening product, maybe because there's no oil in my face)
  • My face is not oily (but it only last upto 4-5 hours)
  • My face is tightened (as well as the pores)
  • My face is smooth ( I love to touch it!)

WHAT I LIKE:
  • It's easy to apply
  • I really like the tightening effect
  • I love the result! 
  • Small amount is equals to wider application 
  • It's easy to wash it off

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
  • its smell (kinda strong, I'm not really used to it)
  • It's somehow expensive if you will buy it with its regular price

HOW TO USE?
  1. After facial cleansing, apply by gently spreading across facial surface. Take care to avoid contact with the eyes and mouth.
  2. Leave on for 5 minutes
  3. Rinse off with warm water.

TIP: 
  • Avoid doing facial expressions while the mask is on, it can cause wrinkles.

Use this once a week.
 
Regular Price: Php498, but bought this in an auction for only Php 205.00
Where to Buy: Etude House click here for branches.
Size/Weight: 100ml

DISCLAIMER: Please test first if you are not allergic to the product. If you have a sensitive skin, consult first your dermatologist. If you experience swell, itching or irritation on skin, immediately stop using the product. Avoid contact with eyes. For external use only.

Product Review: Human Heart Nature Hair Mask

HUMAN HEART NATURE NATURAL HAIR MASK ~ AVOCADO & GUGO BARK (JASMINE SCENT) ~

Damaged hair because of styling and the weather? 

Give your hair a break and treat your hair and scalp with this hair mask from Human Heart Nature.

No more going to expensive salons, you can do this at the comfort of your home with less expense!

 Human Heart Nature is a 100% Filipino-made product ~Proudly Pinoy~


 Their products don't have harmful chemicals like Paraben, SLS etc. that are found in other commercial products.


The product's duration is only 12 months. Maybe because its ingredients are all Natural.


 The smell is great!


 Not that thick but creamy texture


Here is my HOW TO APPLY THIS HAIR MASK:
  1. Shampoo your hair
  2. Towel your hair but leave your hair damp
  3. Apply the hair mask (I suggest you apply it first on your scalp) Like the picture below.

 4.  Apply it to the rest of your hair
5. Massage your head/scalp

6. Use a shower cap or hot towel to cover your hair (I can't find my shower cap and I'm too lazy to use a hot towel so I just clipped my hair) I'll just do it next time, Spare Me! ;)
7. Leave on for 30 minutes or more to maximize the use

THE RESULT?

After rinse, it's easy to comb it (of course, hairfall can't be avoided). When it's already dry, my hair feels so soft and I love to touch it! My hair smells great too! Btw, while the mask is on my head, I love the cooling sensation it gives! But, inspite of that, I think, the 50g product is too expensive for a Php99 because it can only be used for 5 applications if your hair is short and 3 applications if your hair is long like mine. Maybe it's expensive because the ingredients are all natural. But, come to think of it, it is much less expensive compare to salons.

Try first if your skin is suitable to the product. Others are not used to natural products so sometimes it may cause them the other way around.


TIP: 
  • Always wash your hair with cold water. Hot water may cause hairfall.
Use this once a week.
 
Regular Price:  Php99.75
Where to Buy: dealers, online etc. Bought mine thru their site. It's www.humanheartnature.com
Size/Weight: 50g

DISCLAIMER: Please test first if you are not allergic to the product. If you have a sensitive skin, consult first your dermatologist. If you experience swell, itching or irritation on skin, immediately stop using the product. Avoid contact with eyes. For external use only.

Product Review: Etude House Love Homme Cleansing Foam for Men

ETUDE HOUSE LOVE HOMME CLEANSING FOAM FOR MEN

Who says men cannot use Etude products?

I bought this for BF last Grand Sale. It's a cleansing foam for men. Let's see if BF likes this. ;)

 Cute and sophisticated packaging


 The back view ~the texts are all in Korean~


TRIVIA: Do you know that 'HOMME" means "MAN"?


 "All you need is Love Homme" ~nice tagline~


 I hope I can understand this graph ^


 Sorry for the messy cap. BF is currently using this.


 The texture is medium thick (not as thick as the Happy Tea Time)
It's silky.


 There are tiny blue beads!


The EFFECT?

According to BF, the effect is just like other ordinary cleansers. Maybe he thought he will look like Lee Min Ho after using this, hahaha! Just kidding~  Btw, he is also using my HTT's Peach and Vitafoam Goodnight after using this. Maybe because he is not that much enjoying with this cleanser. But this cleanser really do have good smell. Maybe next time I'd rather buy him other Etude's products like Baking Powder Facial Wash or Happy Tea Time in Green Tea since he has an oily skin.

HOW TO USE?

1. Wash your face, get ample amount
2. Lather and apply to your face
3. Massage and rinse thoroughly

TIP: Wash you face with warm water.

Use this every morning and every night.
 
Regular Price: Php348, Sale Price: Php 278.4
Where to Buy: Etude House click here for branches.
Size/Weight: 150ml

DISCLAIMER: Please test first if you are not allergic to the product. If you have a sensitive skin, consult first your dermatologist. If you experience swell, itching or irritation on skin, immediately stop using the product. Avoid contact with eyes. For external use only.

Product Review: Human Heart Nature Strengthening Conditioner

HUMAN HEART NATURE STRENGTHENING CONDITIONER IN GUGO & CALAMANSI PEPPERMINT SCENT

Hi Guys! Have you read my blog post on Human Heart Nature's shampoo? If not, you can read it here

Anyway,  here is another product from Human Heart Nature. This is their strengthening conditioner. If you have hairfall or your hair easily breaks, this is the product for you! Of course, it goes hand-in-hand with the HHN shampoo for effective result :)


 All of their ingredients are 100% No Harmful Chemicals!


 The cap is quite cute though, but sometimes it's hard to open it *too tight~


 It's duration is only 12 months.


 I love the Peppermint Scent :D


 The texture is thick and creamy.

THE RESULT?
I have a soft hair after wash and it's easy to comb, but it seems I do have lots of hairfall :o I don't know if it's normal. Maybe I'll continue using it to see if it gives positive result other than making my hair smooth and smells great :D


 I like this product because:
  • They have small bottles of their products which is important in testing first the product before purchasing big bottles.
  • It's cheap for a natural product.
  • Proudly Philippine made. This product is also for export in US.
  • Handy (not bulky)
  • My hair is soft and silky; easy to comb 
  • My hair's smell is awesome :)

What I don't like (this serves as a suggestion to the product)
  • The packaging is not that cute though. I hope they change it so that they can attract more customers.
  • The 50 ml bottle is only good for less than a week use.
  • While combing it (after bath when you're about to dry your hair) I see lots of hair on the floor! Waah.
  • I hope it's also available in the market/malls for easy access.

Try first if your skin is suitable to the product. Others are not used to natural products so sometimes it may cause them the other way around.


HOW TO USE?

1. After shampoo, apply directly to hair.
2. Leave on for a whole song or two for maximum effect.
3. Rinse your hair well.

TIP: 
  • Always wash your hair with cold water. Hot water may cause hairfall.
Use this everyday.
