Review: Etude House "Happy Teatime Peach Tea Cleansing Foam", "Sleeping Facial Pack", & Skin Food "Honey Black Tea Bubble Foam".

Alright.. So I haven't been updating anything here for almost a month!!! And I am really sorry about it. Since I came home from Japan I haven't really felt any inspiration for writing. Didn't really know what to write about. But I will start updating about my everyday life.. even though it is most of the time boring as h*ll, lol!

Today I will write a review of 3 products that I use on a daily basis. They are from the korean brands "Skin Food", and "Etude House". Some of you might have heard of these brands before, or even tried 'em out. And for some of you, this might be the first time hearing about them. I personally love Skin Food.. and I actually like Etude house much. I'd like to say that they have got a lot of good beauty products, for a small price. That's always a good thing, right? ;)

From left to right: Etude House Sleeping Pack, 
Etude House Cleansing Foam, And Skin Food Cleansing Bubble Foam.

The Sleeping Pack's texture is quite loose (runny), and as you might see 
it's a bit transparent. 

The Cleansing Foam's texture is very creamy, thick, and firm.

The Cleansing Bubble Foam is,
 as you can see very foamy, bubbly.

Etude House Sleeping Pack: I really like this one. As I tend to have dry skin in bad weather conditions, I'm happy there's a pack like this. There are 3 different type of sleeping packs. I'm using the moist&firm one. Apply it after you've washed your face, go to bed, and rinse it off in the morning. It won't get easier than this. The sleeping pack has got a mild scent. A positive thing is that you only need to apply little, thanks to it's texture. I do think that it keeps your skin quite moist. I do NOT recommend this to people with very sensitive skin, as your skin might react badly to this product!

Etude House Cleansing Foam: This is a very good facial wash. I'm not sure, but it feels like a mild product. The smell is divine (peach tea). It is ridiculously easy to apply onto your face (thanks to it's creamy texture, it feels very smooth to apply). And rinsing off has never been easier. On the pack it says that the cleansing foam is nourishing and brightening. The bad point however (in my opinion) is that I feel like I need to apply a moisturizing product right after, or else my skin feels a bit dry. But still, it cleanses very well, which is very important for me.

Skin Food Cleansing Bubble Foam: I LVE this cleansing foam. From when I first bought it, til now, I'm still in love with it. lol!! It's moisturizing your skin, and also removes keratin + provides elasticity to your skin (according to what is written on the bottle). I bought this together with the honey and black tea daily cream. Unfortunately I've run out of it!! But it is also a great product.
I love the honey smell. And the bubbly, foamy foam is really nice. Easy to apply. Rinses off easy, and leaves your skin fresh.

I recommend all of these three products. And one more thing that's very nice about 'em are the packaging. Really cute!!
If you have a possibility to, you should try them. I've personally bought all of them in Japan. But I think you can order it from Ebay, Amazon (?) etc. If you have the possibility to, you should visit their shops :)

I'll try to write a new update soon again!!
Hope that you're all having a good week.

Love from Amanda (^o^)/

Dinner In Koreatown

Pictures as promised :)

This isn't all the food we ordered though. But I was too interested in the food so totally forgot to snap more photos.
It was a nice dinner, and had a great time anyway.

Sanrio Puroland

Went to Sanrio Puroland last sunday. Was actually a bit excited. But I've got to be completely honest.. as much as I love Hello Kitty, and Sugarbunnies, it was a big disappointment going to there. Unless you have got the mentality of an 5 year old, I don't see any reason to go there. DON'T waste your money. And if you still do, I'm sorry to say "I told you so". I'd recommend Disneyland anytime over Puroland really. 

Then, what was so disappointing about Sanrio Puroland?
Well.. at first it seems quite nice, and the whole place is literally bright, and sweet as sugar. But after a short time, you will get bored. They don't have any interesting attractions. And what's left except for the attractions? Shops. The shops are actually quite nice. But honestly, who is going to there with the shops on their minds? It's supposed to be an amusement park, not a "shop park", right? 

Me and my BF rode one attraction. Some sort of boat thing. I got so dissy, as well as him. You get to see a lot of cute characters during the ride, and high pitched, over-cute voices are talking (or screaming?) loudly. Ughhh.. I'm too old for this.. -.-" 

Sanrios Puroland is simply not for adults, or even teenagers? This is an amusement park that will bring joy to the smallest. It's a very "happy, and safe" place for the kids I believe. 

Another BIG disappointment for me was that the shops didn't have a single item of Sugarbunnies. Even thought they have the characters everywhere. But in the shops, not at all. I was really looking forward to purchase some plushy or other cute item of Sugarbunnies. Looked everywhere,
but it was nowhere to be found. Oh well, guess it can't be helped. I did however purchase some other stuff. 

Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures from sunday's adventure.
(I didn't take any pics of the characters almost.. sorry for that. But at least you get to see some of Puroland).

Outside of Sanrio Puroland.

A Hello Kitty car :)

Me and BF bought some donuts,
 and a sub after we were done with puroland.
Went to a  nearby park to eat.

Bought Hello Kitty almond cookies..

...And manju!

This bag is so cute!! It came with some strawberry cakes that I bought.

Well.. If you'd still feel tempted to go to Sanrio Puroland. You should. Perhaps it's just me who isn't childish enough anymore. This is just my opinion. 
Puroland gets 2/5 from me.

Now I have to get back to my studies.
Have a good day.
