Products I Loved and Hated in the Second Half of 2017

It’s been 9 days into 2018, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t post about 2017 (I’m just making up excuses for posting this late). I’m sorry guys!

Anyway, I did a similar post back around July, and I am going to repeat that the products I hate meant more like products I dislike, or would not re-purchase in the future. It doesn’t mean that I fully hate them or anything. I don’t want this to be a very long post, so I’m trying my best to only pick some products, even though there’s a lot more that I would love to share.

Products I loved:

Skincare

  • COSRX Advanced Snail 95 Mucin Power Essence

This product easily became one of the products I love due to it giving my skin good results. I don’t know how, but this essence helps reduce the bumps that I have and also it quickens the fading of scars. It has this unique consistency that mimics snail mucus, but I actually think it’s more interesting that way. It’s been almost 5 months and I haven’t even use half the bottle yet. Now I know why everyone hypes about this product.

  • Acwell Aqua Clinity Cream/Double Moisture No. 4

This product is probably my favorite moisturizer so far as it is moisturizing, gentle and is quickly absorbed. I don’t have much to talk about it anymore since I’ve talked about it in my review. I’ll just let you know that towards the bottom of the tub, I used it less often because I love it so much.

  • innisfree Canola Honey Lip Balm

This product was way beyond my expectations. I wasn’t expecting much of it but I was surprised at how effective this lip balm is. I don’t need to re-apply this product as often as I do with other lip balms. Although it might feel a bit oilier, but I don’t really mind as long as my lips aren’t chapped.

  • lululun 7 days (Hydrating)

These sheet masks aren’t thin like the Etude House ones, but I think that they are really effective at delivering moisture to the skin. There is a lot of essence in the package that the sheet masks are dripping of essence. I love that these masks only require 10 minutes which is half the time it takes for other sheet masks.

Makeup

  • Peripera Peri’s Ink Velvet (Celeb Deep Rose)

I’ve only gotten this for about a month but I love the packaging and also the color. I feel like this color suits me a lot. I’m surprised by that because this color leans more towards orange and I don’t usually buy orange-ish colors so it’s cool. And it’s long-lasting so I reach for this a lot.

Hair

  • mise en sc√®ne Perfect Serum Treatment

I first tried this product from the small packet included in the hair dye box and I loved it. It made my hair feel so soft even after I just dyed my hair. So I found this big tube of it and I’ve diligently used it once a week. Especially after I bleached my hair, and it made my hair feel better.

  • Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Shampoo

I was looking for a shampoo that would moisturize my hair as it is quite dry because of the constant dyeing, heat and maybe weather. However, I was just trying Korean shampoos because I was curious and this product surprised me. Every time I use this shampoo, my hair feels so soft as if I just applied conditioner. I don’t know how it works but it makes a huge difference.

Products I hated:

Skincare

  • Innisfree Real Squeeze Mask

After using the Etude House masks, I got used to thinner masks, so I don’t really like these Innisfree ones. I don’t know why, but I also feel that they aren’t very effective. Even if sheet masks aren’t great, they should at least be moisturizing. However I don’t think that they are moisturizing enough.

Makeup

  • Bbia Last Auto Gel Liner #1 Noir

I’ve heard good things about Bbia’s eye liners. However, I am quite disappointed in this gel liner. Every time I apply it on my lids, it would smudge to my bottom lids, even if I used a primer beforehand. I still have to figure out how to prevent this from smudging.

Contact Lenses

  • Eye Deco Color Contact Lens Colors (Shiny Blue)

I don’t have much to say about this product since it’s all in my review. But, all I can say is that I was disappointed in it.

 

Thank you for checking out my post! Here’s to the upcoming best beauty products of 2018~

2018 New Year’s Resolution

As a lifestyle blogger, I want to create New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 concerning my blog. Here are a few main things that I want to try to maintain the following year:

1. Uploading at least once a week

It is sometimes hard to keep uploading once a week so I always try my best to write my blog posts in one go and post them one at a time. However, I always forget to write new ones and keep missing my supposedly scheduled time to post. I’ll try to be more consistent this year. Hopefully I’ll be able to manage my time better.

2. Post some makeup tutorials

I’ve always wanted to post makeup tutorials but I’ve never gotten the chance to because I’ve been trying to figure out how to show a step-by-step tutorial. It’ll take a while though. I might have to use half a day to take the step-by-step photos. I hope I’ll figure it out this year.

3. Post more about K-dramas

Since, I’m always watching dramas, I’m thinking of posting more about K-dramas. Maybe some recommendations, or reviews. I started a post last year but I didn’t really continued it so it was pretty disappointing. I hope I’ll post more about them this year.

 

I hope that I’ll become a better blogger this year, learn more from other bloggers, and interact with my followers. Happy New Year, everyone!
