I bought this essence this morning for $6 at The Body Shop. I needed to buy a toner so I was lucky enough to get this. It has vitamin C in it for all skin types. What I like about The Body Shop is they don't do animal testing. It's so awesome. I hope it works for me. It says eye area should be avoided.
I finished using China Glaze Orange Cuticle Oil today. I won't buy this item again because it wasn't enough for my nails to get hydrated even thought it smells good. That's why I bought Avoplex Replenishing Oil. I used to use Essie Cuticle Oil, but I didn't like the apricot smell. I'll never buy the Essie one, either.
I got these today; Avoplex cuticle replenishing oil, and Definity illuminating eye treatment. I'll start using these tonight. I'm excited :) The cuticle replenishing oil was $7.45, and the illuminating eye treatment was $9.99. They were pretty good prices. I'm happy about that. I've just tried to smell the cuticle oil and it smells really good! Awesome ;)

I like their smells, but unfortunately they don't give me enough hydration to my hands, although I like what they do as anti-bacterial hand lotion. Usually anti-bacterial gel will dry out my skin.
What I recommend as a hand lotion is Johnson's soft lotion. It will soften my skin and my hands will be smooth. The right one is a Victoria's Secret hand cream. I haven't tried it yet, but it smells really good. It was 40% off yesterday. I'm quite happy about that. I was going to buy a body lotion, but I don't want my body to smell spicee apple though I like the smell. I thought my hands to be smell it was enough.

These are things I never buy again; Victoria's secret Very Sexy mascara, and Maybelline Mineral Power. Speaking of the mascara, it comes off easily. It'll always give me dark circles. The package is really cute though. As for the mineral power, my skin gets itchy, and if I touch my cheek, the pigment sticks to my fingers and everything. I didn't like the brush, either.

I finished using these. They weren't bad, but I don't feel like buying them again especially Touki Mask Jelly. Many people say the jelly works well your pours, but I don't think it has done anything for me. Salicylic Face Milk was good. It contains salicylic acid and oil-free. It was light enough for summer. I think I'll get one next spring. It's not good for winter.

Speaking of tea leaves, I have Iced Wine Tea from Canada, Hougi tea, Maccha Powder Tea, Hatomugi tea (Coix Seeds), and Oolong Tea. I needed to have tea leaves for my health to heal PMS. I already tried both of the tastes, and I really liked them. I hope to feel better :)

Look at those! How cute they are~
I got a hand cream for free using a coupon at Bath & Body Works again,and brown sugar and fig room spray. A friend of mine took me to Target and I bought a nail polish, which was Revlon Really Rose. I think I want to get Touch of Mauve next time, because the color was good on me when I tried it.
This Holiday Season version, Twisted Peppermint smells really good. This is one of my favorite scent. This hand soap was $3. I love to use this creamy hand soap because I care about dryness on my hand. I need to exfoliate my knees elbows, and heals, so I got a body scrub for free using a coupon. Brown Sugar and Fig hand lotion is also one of my favorite lotion. It was also $3. I wouldn't buy these if they were retail price.
↓ I have found a good web-site to buy holiday collection.
-So Sexy conditioner for dry hair
-Brilliant Hair Mist
I went to Victoria's Secret this Saturday, and I bought those so sexy hair products. It was 3 for $24. So far I've used the detangler, and really love it. It gives my hair really soft and smooth. Since it gets cold, my hair tends to have static electricity,which means that my hair is damaged or dry. But it's gone! I love it :) Also it smells really good.
I also bought this a couple weeks ago. I needed a case for my pens. I'm using this as a pen case.
I had never used Love Spell lotions, but now I have cute tiny those three. I love those travel size.
What's more, I got a hair essence and a scrub for blackhead. I've been using this Elseve essence since high school. I've just used this scrub once, and I realized that blackhead around my nose went smaller already. But I'll see.
Here is my wish list below↓
I'll definitely buy this weekend when I'm done with my homework for this week because I have 3 paper to be done. I can't wait!

I got a mini bottle of Dove proage body cream from free-cycle.
It sounds pretty odd that I like this. But it gives my skin really really smooth and soft.
It doesn't contain mineral oil. Perfect.

-Biore Triple Action Astringernt -$5.69
-Johnsons Baby Lotion ----------$2.69
-Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm -$1.00
-Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme -$0.99
According to some articles like above, Carmex lip balm has a bad reputation. I should've known that. But I wanted to try them. I want lip balms to contain menthol because I like to feel the soothing. I was using Burt's Bees lip balm, but my lips got irritated when I used this lip balm. I had to buy something new for my lips to heal them.
I bought Nivea Soft Trial Size because I need something for my hands to carry with me in my cosmetic case. I hope it'll help. I haven't used it yet.
I bought Johnson's Baby Lotion because I need something that has light scent. I have a body and hand lotion but it smells chocolate. It's ew for summer.
And I like Biore's package a lot. I bought this because I need a lotion for my decollete and neck areas. I didn't like Theyer's lotion. Actually I want to use Kiehl's Herb Lotion for my breakouts, but you know, it's expensive a bit. Biore Astringent is just an alternative lotion.
Everything I bought today was cheap enough. I'm happy about it :D

I went to Bath&BodyWorks. Then I found theses cute tiny hand gels. They're good for carrying. I put one into my cosmetic bag that I always carry with me <33 Pretty. I like these two scents, but not others.
-DHC Salicylic Face Milk
I use these in case by case. If I feel dryness, I use Annemarie Borlind Purifying Care. In other case, DHC Salicylic Face Milk can be used. Both were a little bit expensive for me. I bought the Annemarie Cream for $22, and the DHC milk for $19. When my skin condition is not good, the Annemarie Cream tends to stay white and a bit solid. When it is fairly good, the cream can be absorbed well into my skin. I like both goods. But if I compare, I like the DHC Milk better than the Cream becasuse I like its liquid-like texture.

Over-Night Biological Peel -Kiehl's-
When I went to Nordstorm the other day, a lady at Kiehl's recomended this product to me. Since then, I'm so interested in using this. They didn't have samples that day, so I didn't get a chance to try this. I definitely have nasty pores on my nose. So anyway I've got to try this! She said this peel would take out all my pores eventually if I use this once or twice a week before I go to bed. I want to believe her because I want to get really clear and fine skin in the future.
Here is a review from a girl. Her pores vanished according to her post. I really want to try this. It costs $42. I can't buy one now but later :D

I use Thayers witch hazel with aloe vera formula for my neck and decollete areas to wipe off dirt. It helps me to prevent breakouts around those areas. However, I don't use it on my face because it gives my face too much moisture. After I'm done this lotion, I won't buy it any more. I used to use Thayers witch hazel rose petal also. But I didn't like it, either. After washing my face, I apply AHA BP Lotion and wipe off any dirt from my face. Then, I apply DHC Balancing Lotion and Voige Skin Lotion. I like DHC Balancing Lotion because it hydrates my skin without greasing it. I'm not allelgic to alcohol at all, but it's alcohol free formula. It balances pH on your skin and equilibrates it. My skin really needs to be balanced and equilibrated, so this lotion is for me.

I'm scared that fall semester gets started soon. BUT, I'm so excited about this Manish Arora collection :D They look really pretty. I want a blush, and a lip glass. I might want to buy a blush as Devil ( Bright iridescent coral orange) this time instead of pink one. And I'm interested in a lip glass as Shine Manish (Frosty bright orange with multi-dimensional pearlized pigments). I love pink though. But I already have a pink lip glass and a blush.

Here is my favorite a tooth paste and a floss. I like mint flavor. To be honest, I should avoid this kind of stuff containing sodium lauryl sulfate because it breaks down the surface of your skin and causes some bad ingredients into your body. But every time I use this tooth paste, my teeth get really smooth and clean. I just can't stop using this. As for the floss, it takes some dirt between your teeth. This is clean-burst flavor. I feel really good. I've heard that a floss stimulates your gum and makes it healthier. I use this in order to take off dental plaque. I didn't this before like a year ago. I know it sounds pretty nasty because my family doesn't care about our dental health that much. I've just notice that how much your teeth health affected your first impression. At least I want to care about them, so I decided to use them. It feels good :)

-Biore warming anti-blackhead cream cleanser (2/week)
-Cleansing Research wash cleansing (2/week)
-HABA oil cleansing (1/week)
-KIEHL'S blue herbal gel cleanser (every night)
-ORIGINS checks and balances (2/day)
Here is my skin routine.
I use biore warming anti-blackhead cream cleanser, wash cleansing, or oil cleansing for T-zone such as a nose. Warming anti-blackhead cream cleanser cost about $4.50. It was on sale. This is really good. It has no oil but salicylic acid. It becomes warm when you apply on your skin. I bought wash cleansing in Japan for about 900 Yen with a small lotion bottle. It smells good like apples. It has some enzymes in it to break down dirt on your face. You also can form this as a face wash. Oil cleansing from HABA is a really strong cleanser. I have very strong pores on my chin (beneath my lips) and nose. I use this once a week to cleanse off those nasty pores. You can get this at www.habaus.com. I apply this on my nose and chin areas in dry condition. And gently touch my skin and make circle movement. Next I apply a small amount of water, and emulsify water and oil. Make sure rinse off everything. As you may know, surfactant may be contained this oil cleanser. It is not good for your skin. But I use this beacause my pores are really stubborn. KIEHL'S gel cleanser is my favorite one so far. I bought this last week when my friends took me to Nordstrom. I didn't know my city had KIEHL'S. It smells really good. It has sodium laureth sulfate in it, but I ignore it. I try to care about the sulfate. But if I care it, my pores won't go away, I guess. It doesn't stimulate my skin so far. So it has to be good for me. After cleansing off make-up, I use checks and balances from ORIGINS. I form it a lot and apply it on my skin. An advisor at ORIGINS store told me this was for conbination skin. It almost done. I don't know if I get this again. I didn't feel any advantage from it. I use this morning and night, twice a day.

I went to WalMart today, and I bought some beauty stuff; a nail buffer, a blush for my eyebrow, a mineral foundation, and a bath towel. The bath towel was on sale. It was $5. The original price was $10. A big deal. I wanted to try a mineral foundation for a long time. So I got that of Maybelline. It cost $7.98. I used to use a nail cutter, but it definitely bad for your nails. So I bought a rough nail buffer. It works really well. (I already used it.) My eyebrows are tick and dark, so I don't need to write them. I just need to comb them, so I got a blush. It was about $1. The quality of hairs is not good, but it's OK because I probably buy one again due to sanitization.
