[Haul] Jolse Korean Skincare & Makeup

Hello everyone!

It feels like forever ago since I last made a post. But school assignments have been taking most of my time. Good news if that I got a raise at work! And you know what that means?! More money to spend :x It looks a lot, but I promise most are free gifts!
I typically only purchase skincare products, because I don't really wear that much makeup. However, I already did most of my skincare haul back in November, and with all the holiday sales from Christmas, I decided to purchase from Jolse again earlier this month. This time, picking up some makeup products as well.

I will be doing reviews on most of these products, so stay tuned. If there's a particular item you want me to do a review on first, let me know! Please also share your experience if you've tried anything out.

[Review] Princess Pinky Eclipse Pink Circle Lens

I think these lenses make me look ridiculously different! Also, please excuse: I have been staying away from eyebrow pencils right now.

I actually purchased a different set of lenses back during Pinky Paradise's 50% off Black Friday Sale, but due to some custom problems with Fed Ex, my order got sent back to the company and they were unable to resend out a new one due to the lenses I initially ordered being out of stock. So I went ahead and chose the Princess Pinky Eclipse Pink Circle Lenses ($28.90). I only ended up paying $9.95 for these lenses because that's what the previous lenses cost me, and due to the mishap, the company did not charge me extra.

[Review] Laneige Snow BB Cream SPF 41/PA++ Review


Happy New Year, all! I'm back with a review for a BB cream I recently purchased, the Laneige Snow BB Cream SPF 41/PA ++, $32.90
Laneige Snow BB Cream SPF 41/PA ++ combines the effect of makeup base and foundation, even out your skin tone while covers up facial imperfection. It also removes excessive shine. With the high UV protection (SPF 41/PA++), it protects skin from harmful environmental factors and restoring the skin healthy glow. 
Liquid Crystal Essence has similar structure to the skin surface lipid which works as a natural skin moisturizing film seal on your skin, keeping skin hydrated all day. This BB Cream is also enriched with Snow Crystal Powder which has light diffusing effect, to give a natural lift for your face contour, at the same time concealing skin flaws. It also prevents skin discoloration and maintains neat and colorful makeup.
This BB cream comes in two shades:
  1. Shimmer Brightening BB Cream - Provides coverage with slight shimmer. Skin looks brighter and more radiant
  2. Natural BB Cream - For that perfectly natural look. Skin looks healthy and flawless.

Since I have oily/combination skin, I purchased shade No. 2 Natural BB.

Before starting the review, I want to first mention my skin problems. I have large pores and even larger acne scars due to years of suffering with acne (since I was 9). Unfortunately for me, I didn't really start thinking about taking care of my skin until recently. I used to have a bad habit of picking on my acne, therefore the scars.
