BNTgirl x Pure Heals Ginseng Berry Eye Lift Patch

Oh god I needed these.

Midterms just ended for me and I’m a serious victim of eye bags, not the cute aegyo eye bags, the omg what happened to sleep ones. Also, not to be confused with designer eyebags you obtain from jetsetting to foreign countries for brief amounts of time.

Today I’ll be reviewing Pure Heals Ginseng Berry Eye Lift Patch!


Eye patches are a great mini mask for the eye bags specifically because they still allow you to continue with whatever you’re doing ( in my case, studying like a mad man). So I really appreciate them because they just feel nice in general.

What’s specifically excellent about the Pure Heals one is that not only is it cooling during initial contact but for the entire extended wear of the eye patch entirely. Plus I like the fact is a clear gel, it looks a little bit more normal.


Even better bonus about the eye patches is that they work( at least for me)! I just put them on for 20-30 minutes and continuing the ritualistic studying that is engineering.

Here are some before and after pictures:

Before:

After:


The skin around my eyes definitely plumped back up and looked much healthier.

Does what it’s advertised to do, so that’s super cool.

Only bummer is that the MSRP is 53,000 Korean Won or around $53USD, so it’s quite a baller amount. But if price isn’t a issue or you need some major help ASAP, give it a try.

Still a solid though, so I’d give this a 8.5/10, minus 1.5 for the price. I’m a student, broke life.

BNTgirl x STYLENANDA 3CE Fitting Cushion Foundation

Bonjour, it’s fall, but more importantly I feel like it has been exam week every week in October and somehow my midterms continued onto November. So needlessly to say my skin has been wrecking havoc, stress does not do wonders for the skin at all.Fake it till you make it, am I right. 3ce4

I needed something to cover my face with and make it look flawless while doing so. Sometimes my prayers are answered in the form of Korean makeup.

Today I’ll be reviewing STYLENANDA 3CE Fitting Cushion Foundation in shade 21.

It’s a compact cushion but unlike my others, it has a sleek and cool finish. Though to be real everything by 3CE has a cool feel to it; lipstick: cool, mascara: cool, everything: cool. Stylenanda is my low key crush. Stylenanda has some super cool feeling designs. But my favorite thing about the cushion compact itself is the super cute air puff (sponge applicator), usually in cushion compact it has a blue base, but 3CE has a pink one (you can see the edges of pink on the applicator).

3ce2

Of course as a cushion foundation all you have to do is press gently into the cushion to get some product onto the air puff, and tap away. And what’s left is a flawless face.

3ce1

Seriously flawless skin, dewy and glowing skin. It’s easy to make it seem like I have great skin and within seconds if I apply really quickly. Fast and simple, I love cushions.

Of course as with any foundation type I have to try a stress test on it of sorts. So I decided to try it out in a day of my life as a student in university. I have classes from 8am-4pm and I go to the gym afterwards.

3ce6

8AM: Face is of course flawless because I just applied the foundation.

Skip forward like 8 hours later, and a cardio session of 45 mins.

3ce5

MY EYEBROWS RUBBED OFF(LOL)! But the 3CE cushion stayed on. Indicating that this is some real nice foundation. If I had to redo #SummerInEurope2k15, I’d definitely bring this on my trip.

On a regular day out with my friends, where we all wear the same sweater, I really stood out with my glowing skin. #nophotoshop #juststunning

3ce

Overall I found that as a cushion foundation, the Fitting cushion really fits my lifestyle. Hahaha…trying to be punny (pun+funny).

It really fits my lazy lifestyle, I can just apply it in the morning and then not worry about it for the rest of the day and I’ll still photograph well.

So if you’re in the market for a new foundation, definitely give it a try.

I’d rate this a 10/10 in my books. They gave me a refill so I’ll keep using it until I run out and I’ll have to run out and buy more.

BNTgirl x STYLENANDA 3CE LONG WEAR EYE CRAYON

Hon hon hon hon hon. Sacre-Bleu! Baguettes? C’est comme je vais retourne en France. France, I’ve returned.

Aujourd’hui (today) I’ll be reviewing STYLENANDA’s 3CE LONG WEAR EYE CRAYON in the shade “Baguette”.

I absolutely love eyeshadow sticks, c’est ma amore. They’re easy to use and completely mess and hassle free. Just put as much as you like on and smudge it out with a finger and you’re ready to go. Or use them as a base color and work off that.

The best part was this formula was completely waterproof. Yeah, baby! No smudging, or creasing or shadows gone awry. Compact and travel friendly, shadow sticks are definitely my friends forever. Honestly I was just tempted to give it a 10/10 review based solely on the fact it was a eyeshadow stick.

But you know, the waterproof and iridescent color made it de creme de la creme (da best).

Now the color itself wasn’t a color I would’ve chosen myself (I’m more of a neutral or pearly colored girl myself) but I work with what I got. Still pretty.

Ohh ahh, multiple colors, one shadow very iridescent.

Eye shadow wise, fantastic. No glittery fall out, and didn’t budge. It made the perfect base to my EOTD (eyeshadow of the day). Superb quality 3CE.

For the crease and to highlight the corners of my eyes I used the Naked 2 palette. The center was simply the eyeshadow stick. And tada, look how pretty it is!

Simple everyday look completed easily with one awesome eyeshadow stick. If this review hasn’t convinced you to buy some, I will buy everything regardless.

3CE has consistently made make up of high quality akin to the higher end spectrum of western brands. I know for sure my Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier eyeshadow sticks have some tough competition for my love against the 3CE eyeshadow stick.

So if you’re in the realm of purchasing a eyeshadow stick for everyday usage, go forth and try the 3CE Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick!

10/10. Obviously.

BNTgirl x UGARDEN PERFECT OIL MASK – Camellia

Wow, time really flies doesn’t it?

I’m feeling really busy nowadays, what feels like 30 minutes is actually two hours. Yesterday I studied for what I thought was a few hours but turned out to be 5 hours! But sometimes I like to take a breath and relax, watch the world go by. Or Netflix and chill by yourself. But really, it should be Netflix and chill AND mask.

I love multi-tasking, and when it’s a mask that takes 20 minutes, I can squeeze a episode on Netflix in quickly too. Face feels refreshed and my mind gets a little break.

Today I’ll be reviewing UGARDEN Perfect Oil Mask (in Camellia). It’s a two in one (awesome) mask that comes with oil and a mask! Time to start buffering that Netflix and mask it on.

The first step, like always, is to clean your face (or make sure it’s clean).

Ta da, clean face.

Afterwards you rip off the off the top part of the mask package, the oil, and rub your face with the oil.

You know I’ve always wondered what camellia would smell like, question answered. The smell smacked my nose silly when I inhaled too strongly to begin with, and I would not suggest to others to sniff your oil too strongly. But smelling it delicately afterwards, I appreciated the smell a lot more. It was still strong but pleasant.

After that I rested for 20 minutes of looking like this. And watching some Netflix, I’m currently watching a “Death in Paradise.” Solid murder mystery series, my favorite genre.

I was done. Ta da.

Check out that all too dewy glow. I was radiant, practically glowing even. The only downside of this mask was that you kept that dewy glow, literally forever- till the end of time. I just washed my face after three hours because I didn’t want to keep glowing and I wanted to sleep.

Overall a fine mask to add to my ever growing mask collection. The cool part was that it had a section for the neck, gotta prevent those neck wrinkles.

I’d rate it a 9/10, bit too dewy for me but still a nice mask, kept me well hydrated.

BNTgirls Review: Stylenanda 3CE CREAMY CHEEK STICK

Yoo-hoo everyone, yodeleh yee hoo!

During this past month I’ve been trying Stylenanda 3CE CREAMY CHEEK STICK from the mountains of Zakopane in Poland, to the hot and dry Madrid (Spain). I’ve been traveling a lot, and it’s safe to say I’ve tested this product thoroughly.

This product works on temperature extremes and is basically sweat proof.

I went on 6 hour trek up the mountains, the blush endured; sweat, cold temperatures and overall mountaineering. This was at 4C at the top of the mountains.

Few days later I was in Madrid, during a heat wave (40C) and the same blush stayed the same.

photo_2015-07-12_17-14-25

I had friends ask me constantly if I was flushed from the mountaineering or from the crazy heat. Either temperature extremes left my face blush-ful.

So what you basically read is that it’s extremely waterproof from sweat from activities or just from the blistering heat. It’s fantastic.

It applies easily too! Just apply two streaks across each cheek bone and blend it out with your fingers and then it’s done! All day blush, in a minute. Lazy girl in me loves this, especially since I’m traveling around Europe and I have to travel make up light.

photo_2015-07-12_17-14-13 photo_2015-07-12_17-14-10

The make up applies like a cream but has a nice natural-esque powder finish. Sort of brings a glow to your face.
After a long 10 hour day, it’s still visible!

photo_2015-07-12_17-14-04

A solid summer blush that’s easy to use! 8/10.

FORENCOS’ GREEK Mythology MASK SERIES Part 1

For anyone wondering I’m currently in Poland, more specifically Sopot.

It’s part of a tri-city network of 3 close cities together. It’s near the beach, there’s water on the beach, bugs love water…and my face.

Although I did my best to prevent skincare sadness from the plane, there was really nothing I could do to prevent bugs (mostly stupid mosquitoes) from attacking my face. Blegh.

So basically I was in (and still am a little bit) skin care hell. There’s really nothing I could do than rub on some ointment to help stop the itchyness. But the redness seemed to be a constant.

Till I tried these masks!

Today I’ll be reviewing 2 of the 7 masks in the FORENCOS GREEK Mythology MASK SERIES, and I’ll be writing a more further in dept review of my favorites shortly.

Looking so fancy blue nail, you go girl.

Okay real talk, there are basically 7 different masks one for each day of the week.

For the first mask I decided to use the tea tree oil one, because my face was dying and I needed a miracle.

Tea tree oil is suppose to help with acne and I suppose redness all together. So I figured this one would be best for my ailment.

Thursday: relax with Dryas (Tea tree oil mask)

photo_2015-06-09_15-49-45

Check out my sad face. Especially my forehead. Take notice of those HUGE bumps from mosquitoes. : (

Anyways, so I figured why not try it.

photo_2015-06-09_15-49-47

It fit like a glove. TO MY FACE. The mask itself was one of the nicer paper silk material used and it had a pattern that made it seem more breathable.

I put it on for a hour, but you may ask, oh what about the ampoule sachet on the side there? I, uh, didn’t want to use it this time because I was lazy.

But moving along, after an hour…I emerged.

photo_2015-06-09_15-49-52

The redness was slapped down by the mask!

The mask was super effective, red bumps took a critical hit!

Yeah basically it’s amazing. Don’t need to read any further really. Or you can, to read on about the volcanic ash mask.

Tuesday: detox with Hephaestus (Volcanic Ash Mask)

photo_2015-06-09_17-32-09

As you can see in the photo the redness is still there, but not as crazy as the day before.

So I decided since the Tea tree oil one was so effective the day before, I’d try another mask from the series to help continue the prevention.

But this time I did use the amouple, it as a mask base so I put it on before the mask itself. It’s really gooey, super gooey, much like a syrup. But it goes onto your face.

But the mask itself was, uh, shocking.

I’ve never experienced a brown mask, but I guess that was expected for a “ash” mask.

photo_2015-06-09_17-32-13

The mask didn’t fit on my face as well after using the ampoule, so maybe you were suppose to wash it off before putting on the mask, I’ll try again soon.

After a hour, I removed the mask, and had to wash my face because the ampoule had dried up quite a bit. So, yeah I believe you should wash off the ampoule before the mask. #sherlock

photo_2015-06-09_17-32-16

The swelling and the redness went down again! But it doesn’t seem to be as effective as the tea tree oil so far.

I’ll be writing more later.

Coreana RODIN SHO’s EGFactor Timeless Program Part 1

Brief review time.

For this review, it’ll be a bit shorter than my usual reviews. Only because I’ll have a update later (in a month.)

Today I’ll be partially reviewing Coreana’s RODIN SHO’s EGFactor Timeless Program.

I’ll be writing about the 28 day program, there’s another shorter one, I believe for 7 days, if you want to try it.

It comes as a anti wrinkle program, for the eyes and face overall.

First off let’s talk, real talk, you can already see it’s luxurious. BAM syringes, and capsules.

It’s like playing science, but with your face.

The syringes are actually eye creams for the under eye bags, the most sensitive part of your face, SENSITIVE TO TIME!

As a anti wrinkle product, it’s in one of the most sanitary containers I’ve seen so far.

As a syringe it makes sure you put on not too much product onto your face and it distributes the same amount every time.

The syringe is plastic, it feels nice against the hand though, and looks nice.

The ampoules are for the face.

They sort of finish up the treatment, by giving your face a overall hydrated feeling all day long, 24 hours.

The texture is nice and light so far and it feels almost like argan oil onto your face.

More thoughts about this product later.

Bises,

Doris

Prestige BN Gel Mask EX

Masks masks masks, they’re like my shots nowadays, but healthier.

Both go onto my face right? Haha.

Today I’ll be reviewing Prestige BN Gel Mask EX. Ohhh so fancy.

 

The packaging is cute and luxurious looking, especially the ingredients. Bird’s nest and gold combo again. Au au au (chemical symbol, haha.)

The mask is suppose to leave your skin glowing and nourished, it makes your face its baby.

The mask is made as a gel mask and split into two parts, the top half of your face and the bottom half. I suppose this method insures that the user has a better fitted mask so it does it’s job properly.

The mask has one job and that’s to make your face beautiful!

Let’s try the mask.

photo_2015-06-09_14-24-24

Sorry for the potato quality photo, I used my iPhone, which is suppose to be good, but whatever.

As you can see from the photo the mask fit my face really well. It felt nice on and au so luxurious.

Anytime I have a gel mask on my face I feel like it’s much more nicer than a paper mask anyways. Seems like they put more energy into this mask. ENERGIZE MY FACE!

Anyways, I left it on my face for a nice 30 minutes before I went to bed instead of a night cream, and it left my face feeling just as hydrated as a night cream would. But without any greasy residue!

photo_2015-06-09_14-24-29

It was a nice mask that was fairly effective in nourishing my face as it’s baby. I’d likely use their services again to help me with my face.

I’d rate this as a solid 8/10 mask. It does what I want it to do and felt nice.

You can get it here for $23.

Too cool for school EGG MOUSSE PACK & SOAP SPECIAL DUO

Aerosol cans, so hot right now. Amiright?

Late spring/early summers make people lazy and since I’m a lazy person this was great for me. SPRAY EVERYTHING! Everything is easier in a sprayable form.

I’ll be reviewing another Too Cool For School item, this time a mask and soap cleanser duo!

Double the lazy for me, you get both a cleaner and healthier face FROM A CAN!

Like usual, Too Cool For School (obviously too cool for me) provides the cutest packaging.

Everything looks like they’re made to be gifts (to yourself, of course) and the cute yellow string just brings it all together.

Moving onto the important bits though, I use the cleanser (soap) and then use the mousse afterwards.

By the way I completely enjoyed using this product, I love love love super love whipped cream from a aerosol can, and this product just just a continuous reminder of it.

The soap can be used as a cleanser or even as a shaving cream apparently (I’ll try maybe later. Also check out how I pumped out wayyyyy too much into my palm.)

The foam from the cleanser is much thicker and heavier than the mousse (which sounds light anyways), akin to a heavy whipped cream. I’ll be comparing everything in this review to a cream. CREAMY!

As a cleanser I’d say it removed my light make up fairly well. I don’t think it can remove stronger make up such as, waterproof mascara or lipstick. But as a everyday thing it does everything and more in a can!

So let’s say you start off the day lazy, bb cream and eyebrows, you can then finish the day lazy with a can! It’s fantastic, the summer heat makes me extremely lazy.

I’m off from university in the summer, and I don’t see my classmates as often, prompting me to be less likely to put on a full face of make up. Ergo, lazier Doris make up!

You can see how much noticeably thicker and harder it is to spread across my face, since it’s a thicker cream. It was almost icing (yummy) thick. Oh my god, I’m getting hungry writing this.

After setting it for a little bit, I washed it off. Feeling refreshed, nothing than cleaning your make up at the end of the day.

Just kidding, a mask at the end of the day is even better.

For the Egg Mousse Pack I used it as a light mask and after spreading it evenly on my face I left it on for 10 minutes.

For the consistency, I’d say the name is quite on point, it’s like a light mousse, or a nice fluffy whipped cream. Nice and fluffy cream.

The mask is suppose to use it’s eggy properties for good, on your face. Brightening and nourishing your face in fluffy and easily accessible can form.

Unlike the soap it spread on the face quite nicely, easily, and evenly. No rough patched here.

During the 10 minute wait before I rinsed it off, the foam quickly turned into bubbles disappearing into the sea foam it was made from.

Looking moisturized.

As a duo product I’d say it was quite easy and fun to use. If you’re looking for a easy summer product to use, I’d say why not.

Packaging is cute and it does what it does. Not bad.

I’d give this a 8/10.

BNTgirl x MediHeal’s NMF Aquaring Hydro Nude Gel Mask

Ello again! I’m back with another mask, and I’ll be reviewing a lot more masks soon!

Today for my last item in my April box I’ll be reviewing MediHeal’s NMF Aquaring Hydro Nude Gel Mask!

SAMSUNG CSC

It boasts twice as much moisture as regular masks while tightening the pores and clarifying the skin.

SAMSUNG CSC

All I did was slap it on for 20 minutes, bottom half first and then the second half.

IMG_4196

And boy does it make my skin look flawless. I went out a few times after doing the masks, not wearing any make up afterwards and got asked by a few make up counter ladies if I was wearing any make up. My skin looked fantastic. My skin looked clear, radiant, and gave me the perfect subtle glow (like a finishing powder would).

I don’t usually see to much of a difference when I used masks but for this one I did. I’ll show you below;

Before:

IMG_4195

After:

IMG_4211

I feel like I look like I have make up on my skin, bb cream or something but I don’t. It’s all 100% natural nude skin.

More recently I even discovered that you can sleep with you masks on, for perhaps a quick 30 minute power nap. All you have to do is go to Daiso and buy a face mask coverer. Ta-da making flawless skin and sleep at the same time!

IMG_4086

I’m rating this a 10/10. Fantastic face mask and it’ll be hard to top.

If you want to try out this highly recommended face mask you can buy it here for $31.
