February was a short month full of wonderful weather and really interesting products ! I guess February is a charming month to me since it's also my birthday month too haha . I didn't do much for my birthday, but I did buy and enjoy quite a few things from this month haha . So here goes, my favourites for 2017 !
ETUDE HOUSE AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot 15ml (x)
After years and years of living in a dry country, my Skin suddenly turned into the oily skin type, and ever since then I really had to overhaul my current skin routine . While searching for a new skin care routine I found that spot acne treatment is a saviour among saviours, and is probably a must have for anyone with oily skin . At first my go-to treatment was the COSRX pimple patch and while I definitely like it for treating acne that's already popped, I found that the AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot was excellent for preventing acne or pimples to begin with . When it comes to preventing pimples, calming pimples, getting rid of blemishes or red spots, this pink powder is amazing at doing the job . (Oh yeah, and it's ridiculously cheap too, bless the good quality and cheap prices of the Korean beauty market)
サボリーノ朝マスク・SABORINO Morning Mask 31 sheets (x)
Admittedly, I knew nothing about this product until I bought it because I saw the blazing COSME #1 sticker . It's not that all cosme no. 1's impress me...but most of them do . And this is no exception . I know this isn't the 2016 cosme mask of the year (that went to one of the LUSH masks), but it is so impressive and so different from other masks that I've heard of that I just had to chuck it in here . Essentially it's a face cleaner, moisturiser and makeup primer all in one for the morning . What makes it more impressive is that it works - amazingly . I'm suspecting that because of the cleaning agent, it kind of feels like you're putting mint or diluted toothpaste on your face though . But apart from that weird 1 minute moment when you leave the mask on to do its thing, the effectiveness of its job and how cheap it is has instantly made it one of my favourites .
SHISEIDO Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Day Cream (x)
This was actually part of the COSME haul that I got in January, but I found that it started to really work its charm during the month of February . I did a lot of research on this product and I already found it impressive that it's an anti-wrinkle cream for the daytime, that also has SPF in it . Even though they say that it's recommended for people with dry skin, it actually works pretty well for oily skin just as long as you put a really minuscule amount on . I don't want to encourage putting next to nothing on, but let's just say I put a thin layer on my face whenever I use it . Anyway, I like the fact that it's a good and safe day cream for sensitive skin and definitely helps on reducing wrinkles (my smile lines) . It also makes your skin feel super soft once you apply it too, which is weird, but I lowkey enjoy it a lot LOL .
and now for products ! But it's only one thing, really . And that's-
The DAISO Kawaii Line
I'm not too sure if DAISO has reached America, but I know it's reached Australia . DAISO is basically a $1 store (or a $2.65 store, looking at you Australia haha), and sells various amounts of random goods or home goods . This month DAISO launched the Kawaii line which basically plays on the Harajuku culture that Japan is well-known for . I bought a pencil case, post-it note, plastic bowl, two water bottles and a cap from this line . I'm suspecting that it might be available outside of Japan since the cap that I bought says 'TOKYO' on it, and it kind of seems targeted to foreigners . Or I might be completely wrong and its merchandise specific to Japan only . Regardless, try and find it at your local DAISO store because not only is it really cheap, but it's also really damn cute and fun as well . It's cheap so it's not the best quality, but I certainly don't think it's bad quality either. I was actually super impressed with the water bottle because it doesn't leak, looks hella cute, is pretty sturdy, and is 108 yen (which is basically $1 USD) .
|Doesn't it just ooze of kawaii ?|
Now the music picks . I don't want to go into like an annotated description of each of these because it's music, I just want to let you guys listen to it haha . Of course BTS is going to be in there (their new album was released on February 13th), but the other two songs have an indie retro dance vibe that I'm a closet fan of haha . I definitely recommend you check these songs out if you're into super catchy beats !
- BTS - A Supplementary Story: You Never Walk Alone
- BTS - OUTRO: Wings (YNWA version)
- Great Good Fine Ok - Everything To Me
- Joan - Take Me On
So yeah, those are my February favourites ! A good mix of little things, which I think is a good reflection of my February as well haha . :) Do you guys have February favourites ? If so let me know !
