Hello Kitty Nails

Inspired by Kandee Johnson's recent nail tutorial I decided to do my own nails in a Hello Kitty fashion.

Balea Exfoliating Treatment

I felt tonight was another good night to try another one of my Balea skin treatments. This time I went with the Cream and Honey Exfoliating Treatment.

First impression was that it smelled nice, sweet but not overly in-your-face sweet. There are tiny exfoliating beads that give a nice feel to the scrub.

The instructions say to scrub lightly then let it sit fr 10-15 minutes. Okay, no biggie.

Window Shopping

Just some items I've been dreaming of...

Coach - I'm a Coach junkie, I love Coach stuff... But rarely buy it, especially accessories, way too rich for my blood right now...

Sandy Cable Chain Necklace - I love spring turquoise trend!

Balea Face Masks

I was out at Shoppers Drug Mart last week and saw these face masks on for $1.50, I can't resist a good deal.

Tonight I'm trying out the Pore Refining Face Mask, it claims it's anti-aging, but that's not the reason I got it (although preventing aging would be fantastic!)

The instructions say:
Thoroughly cleanse face.  Apply evenly over face, avoiding delicate eye and lip areas. Leave for 10-15 minutes.  Peel off mask starting at the corners, never pull. Rinse off any residue with warm water and pat dry. For best results use weekly as part of your beauty regime.
When you squeeze it out of the  package it's really thick, like honey. It says it's "Siberian Ginseng", the ingredients also include lemongrass and kelp, and oh boy does it ever smell like ginseng. Once you smell ginseng you will recognize the smell anywhere. It also has a very slight lemongrass hint to it as well.

It gets tighter as it dries out and starts to feel funny around the 5-8 min mark.

Removing it was very simple. It came off all in 1 piece for the most part, only some super thin areas on the edges ripped away. After my skin feels very soft but not dry. You have to remember that when it comes to your pore size, there is nothing you can do to make them smaller. It's like asking for your hair to grow a different colour, it's not going to happen. Your pores are what create the oils in your skin, larger pores = more oil. On the plus side oilier skin means less fine lines and wrinkles.

I would definitely buy this product again, for $1.50 why not! It's a fun to peel the mask off. I'd definitely suggest this for younger girls looking for something fun to do at a slumber party.

Nail Polish - Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet

I've been looking for a minty green polish colour for ever! I had a colour that I loved when I was in high school and I couldn't find it again.

Finally I found something I love!! Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet! My hands are really red in this picture since I just did the dishes.

I scuffed up my index finger before it dried fully, oops!

Here's some pix, and my semi-inspiration

Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm BB Cream

What is BB Cream?! You ask? It's a beauty product commonly used in Asia that was originally designed in Europe for people with highly sensitive skin sooth, hydrate and help with hyper pigmentation.  Basically it's an all in 1 foundation, moisturizer, sunscreen, miracle makeup.

I picked this up not really knowing what I was getting into.. and I LOVE IT!

Friday, April 8, 2011


Today I hit up Metrotown and Crystal Mall to check out some products I was dying to get. Crystal Mall is an asian mall, and has all sorts of stuff that a sheltered little white girl like myself thinks is pretty cool. LOL

First I hit up MQ Cosmetics to check out BB Cream. Now BB Cream is a huge thing in Asia and parts of Europe, it's a multi-purpose product that helps correct imperfections in your skin while providing coverage and conceal imperfections. I went with a product I saw a YouTube guru by the name of BubzBeauty (yeah she's adorable!) talking about. That is Skin79 BB Cream.

End of the night... The routine

It's been a loooooooooooooooong day, time to tear 'er down and get my beauty rest. This is what I'm currently doing...

1. Remove makeup! - Baby Oil - because I'm cheep. Cotton rounds (or Rondelles as the french side of the package says).
