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.

I'm really bad at arranging my hair. So I'm practicing it. My hair is dark and partially light brown because of UV ray. I have to be careful about the ray. It gives my hair serious damage. Umm ... it doesn't look sophisticated. It seems like I'm wearing Kimono and ready to go to shrine or something. It's summer though :( I want it to be more fashionable and fancy.
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.
