Baviphat O2 Slimming Peeling Spray

250 mL, 8900 won

I am not exactly sure why I will think there's any relationship between peeling and slimming...
why would a peeling product help slim your body??
You basically spray this on your body (dry surface)
It comes out as a transparent liquid, gently rub on your skin in circles until you see eraser bits
They help remove your dead skin.

Ingredients include sea water which provides hydration and softness
I already have something similar for the face
I was looking for an excuse to get this, so I got it for my body...

After shower, dry your body. Spray this product on your skin and rub in circles gently until you see eraser bits. Keep rubbing gently for ~1 min. Rinse with water.

Shiseido Rosarium Rose Hair Pack

220 g, ~1200 yen

I bought this in Japan. 
After trying the Rose Body Lotion, I decided to try their hair pack
I can smell the elegant rose scent as soon as I opened the lid!! The smell is strong !!
However, once you applied it on your hair, the smell gets absorbed and will be lightened...
What is left on my hair is lighter than what I first smelled, which is ok...
I don't think I wanna smell very "rosy" anyways... ha ha

The color is light pink, texture is half opague
Since I am a lazy person, I use this like how I use a conditioner, but just leave it on longer... ~10 mins, these 10 mins are just enough for me to shower ~~

Normally you would wash your hair, dry it and apply the hair pack on damp hair, wrap with a towel and wait ~15 mins, this gives your hair enough time to absorb the nutrients in the hair pack, then wash off with warm water.

My hair feels so soft and smooth!!!
I've tried both moisturising and refreshing hair mask
I wouldn't say this one is moisturising.. cause it wouldn't do a lot for people with damaged or dry hair
For normal to oily hair, this would be ok... since it was made for normal to oily hair anyways

Shiseido Rose Body Milk

200 mL, ~1200 yen

I bought this from Tokyo, regular price is 1500 yen, but I guess most cosmetic stores have a discount.. so I got it for only 1200 yen !!

The entire Rose series include:

- shampoo
- conditioner
- water mist
- hair pack
- hand cream
- eau de toilette
- essence soap
- body soap
- body milk

The most popular product is the Rose Hand Cream~~

I didn't buy this, cause I am more into Milk hand cream than Rose hand cream....

The body milk has a light rose scent, not strong at all, very attractive!!  The series consist of 6 kinds of rose:  

Ingredients also include Hyaluronic Acid (hydration) and natural plant oilTexture is light and runny, easy to absorb, non-greasy and feels cleanThis is one thing I always like about body milk, since I tend to stay away from thick and oily cream!!

I like using this after shower, the light rose scent that comes out from my body makes me feel very elegant!!  My skin is smooth and soft!!

Etude House Moistfull Massage Mask 3 in 1

180 mL, 7000 won

The above pic was from Google, I have two 30 mL size tubes, so didn't buy a full size

This was from the Cream + Massage mask set I bought for $9 USD  

Light pink gel, water based and thick in texture
Contains Baobab extract which provides lots of hydration, so you skin looks smooth and soft
It also has calming and soothing effects for sun tanned skin...

This 3 in 1 mask has 3 function:
1. massage
2. hydration mask

3. sleeping mask

1. Massage Gel
wash your face then dry, take a suitable amount, massage on your face for 2-3 mins then wash

you will feel fully hydrated and fresh! massaging onto your face helps your skin to absorb the water moisture better 

2. Hydration mask
wash your face then dry, apply a thick later onto your skin, wash after 10-15 mins
as a hydration mask, this does provide lots of hydration, but it will dry fast... skin feels sticky... I suggest using it as a sleeping mask

3. Sleeping mask
wash your face then dry, apply a thick later onto your skin, go to sleep, wash it off the next morning
good things about it is that the next day, your make up foundation goes on super easy and any pressed powder or dry powder will not be flaky at all

This 3 in 1 mask is highly interesting!!
I combined 1. and 3. together.. massaging only my face and leave on as a sleeping mask
It really feels sooo good!!!
Hydration is very important, if your skin is dry, wrinkles are easy to form!!

Etude House Moistfull Cream

This is such a good deal!!
Regular price is 13000 won, I saw it in the Incheon airport for $9!!
Plus there is a free 30mL Massage Mask 30mL !!
I really can't resist ~~

Ingredients include Baobab extracts (contact Vitamin A, D, E, F, provides moisture)

The pink line has 2 kinds of Moistfull cream...
1. Whitening + Wrinkle
2. Moisture plus 

Texture is a bit thick than other water based gels I have tried...
Not easy to evaporate, easy to absorb
Suitable for dry skin

I have combination oily skin and I still like it, it really does bring lots of hydration to my skin... 
However, there's still quite a bit of oil on my face and whitening effect isn't obvious
I don't have deep wrinkles, so I can't judge rather it has good wrinkle effects
But for such a good price, I wouldn't expect it does a great job with wrinkles
Scent is a bit strong...
I suggest people with sensitive skin to first try out the tester or samples before buying
For those with dry skin, this cream is definitely a good choice!

- regular (pink line)
- aloe (green line)
- collagen (orange line)
-whitening (white line)

I am desperate to try the whitening line since whitening have been my main main concern ~~

The weather is getting try, hydration is definitely something we need!!
The Moistfull series have been a long lasting product of Etude House!!
Soothing, gentle and cool

My skin is getting dry lately and it sucks the water moisture like a sponge!!

I love the pink packaging!!

There's 3 ways you can use this:

2. use as sheet mask, get a piece of clean sheet mask and soak it with ~15 mL of toner
3. mix it with mask powder to create a soft mask

Etude House Moistfull Peeling Wash

120 mL, 8000 won

It's funny they call it a peeling wash.. the name sounds confusing.. so is it a face wash or a peeling??

Texture is a light clear gel

I tried adding water to foam it up but it doesn't foam... and doesn't clean... 
so I tried using it as a peeling on DRY skin

Now it makes more sense!!
This is a peeling and NOT a wash!!
You have to apply this on DRY SKIN, then rub it gently on your skin for at least 30 secs
Eraser bits will form and help remove dead skin cells as you rub
If your skin is dirty, or if you live in a polluted area in Asia, you will see eraser bits turning gray/ black..
After using it, my skin feels soft, hydrated and clean.
I wouldn't recommend using it every day, although the product name has "wash" on it...
Use it 2-3x a week

Skinfood Moisture Egg Hair Pack

200 g, 6000 won

Skinfood has 2 kinds of hair pack
one is for dry or damaged hair
the other is for oily hair which is more refreshing

My hair is.... between the 2...
I have oily hair, but since I do a lot of hair straightening and perming, the ends get dry...
I have a lot of split ends too!! so my hair is damaged.... yet it's still oily on the top... 

The Skinfood Moisture Egg Hair Pack looks and smells like pudding!!
It's a light yellow color, creamy texture (also feels like pudding)
very moisturizing for my hair
after using it, my hair becomes so smooth!!!

Except the packaging which I find a bit old fashioned.. I like everything about this hair mask... 
I am lazy, so I just use this as a conditioner and leave on my hair for ~5 mins while I do the rest of my shower... 
But the proper way to use a hair pack/mask is...
wash your hair, apply the hair pack on damp hair, wrap it with a towel, wait 10-15 mins for the essence to absorb into your hair, then wash with warm water.

Next time I go to Korea, I will stock up on this one !!

H2O Sea Salt Foaming Body Polish

H2O had this product after they had the Sea Salt Smoother ~~

This is the 1st generation of the H2O Sea Salt Smoother, I reviewed it in my previous post right before this one ~

The Sea Salt Smoother consists of rough salts, if you have gentle skin, you can't scrub too hard, otherwise it hurts.... it also contains massage oil, super soothing and the scent is unique and relaxing!!! You will get a very good sleep after using this product! The only bad thing is that it makes a mess on the bath tub, quite slippery...

The 2nd generation is the H2O Sea Salt Foaming Body Polish.
Packaging is in a tube which is clean and convenient!
The mixture isn't messy at all.. it doesn't contain massage oil, beads are finer but the unique scent is still here. 

I prefer this one over the 1st generation Sea Salt Smoother ~
It does a pretty good job relaxing, exfoliating and smoothing the skin
Somehow the Sea Salt Smoother is a bit too rich for me... 
For some reason, H2O just discontinued this product...

H2O Sea Salt Smoother SPA

680 g ($27 USD, $37 CDN)

This is one of my favourite products!!
It combines massage oil with sea salt as scrub!!
I use it as a spa treatment after shower ~
But since the salt is kind of rough, you can't scrub it fast!! 
You must scrub your skin s..l..o..w..l..y..

The scent is just awesome!!
After a day at work, everyone feels tired!!
Try massaging the sea salt mixture onto your skin, the unique scent totally takes your tiredness away and you'll definitely have a good sleep!! 

It's more suitable for people with dry skin or those who live in drier areas... 
Since it contains oil, try to stay away from it during the summer.. or if you live in hot countries...
Otherwise you'll feel oily and greasy... 

The only thing I don't like about it, is that it makes a mess in the bath tub... 
It's kind of slippery too....

H2O Sea Salt Body Wash

370 mL, $21.50 CAD

This is one of my favourite body wash!!
I feel in love at the first "sniff". 
The smell is unique and relaxing!!  
I can imagine myself doing a spa.

This is a light yellow thick shower gel, but not easy to lather up.
Ingredients include Red Marine Algae, Japanese Green Tea and Provitamin B.
These strong anti-oxidants protect and repair skin cells from environmental damages.

The price is rather high... but they also have travel sizes 60mL for $6-7 USD
The only thing I like about this is the smell and relaxing feelings it gaves me...

Skinfood Vita Juice Hand Essence

50mL, 3700 won, $65 HKD

It smells like gummy bears or Orange Creamsicles =P
The main ingredient is Vitamin E, which has strong anti-oxidizing and anti-aging effect
The name of the product is rather confusing....
For skincare, you would follow with a moisturizer after using an essence
But for hands... it doesn't seem necessary...

Ffeeee creamy texture, not thick, absorbs fast

A lot of hand creams will moisturizes at the surface, meaning after you wash your hands, they will get dry AGAIN... 
but for this one it actually absorbs right into your hands
It feels soft and clean! 
This is not super moisturising, but just enough moisture to keep my hands in good shape!! 
Although I have dry hands, I would stay away from hand creams that are too rich or too greasy.. it just causes a big mess on my keyboard and things I touch...

Tony Moly Milk Hand Cream

70 mL, 4000 won

Milk products are always my favourite!!!
Whenever I see milk products I think of baby, soft, pure and clean
I can't resist getting this one to try!!

Lotte Duty Free only sells it for $3 USD!!!

My hands are the driest areas on my body!
Hand cream is definitely one of my demanding products.
This milk hand cream contains a light baby powder scent, pure and attractive!
It moisturises pretty well, but if you need to write with a pen, your hands will feel a bit greasy..
However, it still makes my hands soft.
