Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener which has done so much for my skin (you can read the details of what I mean by clicking on my review here). I've also tried Skinfood Fresh Apple Sparkling Toner, which was a bit too heavy on the alcohol because I felt like it was stripping moisture off my face.
Skinfood Egg White Pore Foam in the morning and then Skinfood Black Sugar Scrub Foam at night. I've been satisfied with those two products and have already ordered another one of both. But it never hurts to try new products and I always like to believe that there's something better out there.

Another post on my never ending quest to find a suitable eye cream. Previously, the top concern for my eyes were my under eye circles, which Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Cream has helped a lot and is continuing to help. However, I'm going to be 25 years old next year and I can already see fine lines under my eyes. So I thought it was time to put an anti-wrinkle eye cream into my regimen. I've previously tried Skinfood Royal Honey Eye Cream, which did nothing for me, Skinfood Gold Caviar Double Collagen Eye Serum, which was so-so for the fine lines under my eyes but pretty good for the firming of my under eye area, and Skinfood Platinum Grape Cell Eye Cream, which was so-so for the fine lines also but didn't firm my under eye area.
The reason why I use primers even though I don't wear foundation is because my face becomes an oil mine throughout the day. And since I leave home at 7am and don't get back until 5pm, there's lots of oil (especially when I'm busy and forget to use my oil wipes), which clogs up my pores and I've seen those little red bumps from where my large pores are grow to becoming new red and inflamed pimples.. I've tried to use pore refining serums before like the Skinfood Fresh Apple Sparkling Pore Serum, but it would end up caking with my day cream because the consistency of these pore serums are so matte and powdery. I've tried the Skinfood Fresh Apple Smooth Pore Cream which also acts as a primer. It helped control my oil by halving its production but I wanted to see if other products could do more. After reading some reviews, I decided on trying this one.

Skinfood Avocado Leave-In Fluid which wasn't too helpful, Skinfood Argan Oil Silk Hair Essence which was helpful but not enough and made my hair really thick =\, and Skinfood Extra Virgin Olive Essence which does wonders for my hair but I need 8-9 pumps every time so I'll use up one bottle in 1.5 months. I bought this mist with the Etude House Silk Scarf Repair Hair Essence, which was similar to the Skinfood Extra Virgin Olive Essence but not as good.
I actually got these samples by mistake. I ordered Skinfood Gold Caviar Eye Cream and ended up getting the collagen cream. The eBay seller was kind enough to say they will refund my item as well as the shipping fee it costs for me to send it back...but I was too lazy. So I just decided to keep it since I wanted to try it out anyways.
I'm going to be 25 soon and I already see fine lines on my forehead so I thought it's time to do implement some anti-aging skincare regimen..especially since it takes time to find the right product for me.

I've always wanted to try the Etude House collagen line and luckily this was a complimentary sample that came along with the Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil that I bought on eBay. I'm going to be 25 soon so I want to incorporate an anti-aging/anti-wrinkle prevention product into my skincare regimen.
One of my very few makeup posts. I used to use Clarins retractable eye brow liner in lightest brown. I only like retractable ones because I'm too lazy to sharpen. I'm almost out and I decided to browse the Clarins site only to find that the retractable eye brow liner isn't available anymore. Plus, I wanted to give Korea brands a try, since they were so much cheaper.

I've previously tried Skinfood Royal Honey Eye Cream and Skinfood Gold Caviar Double Collagen Eye Serum, but since they were the only two anti-wrinkle eye creams that I tried, I decided to try out other products too to compare.
[Edit Oct 22 2012]: I have since written a review for Skinfood Black Raspberry Eye Cream that you can check out as well.
I bought this after trying out a sample. Apparently you need to start including anti-wrinkle products in your skincare regimen when you're 25 because prevention is easier than cure. Well I'm getting there soon so I thought I'd start now. However, I do have combination skin so I used a sample first just to make sure I wasn't allergic or broke out the next morning.

Class has been so tiring...8am classes really do take a toll on me..especially when I'm not a morning person. But it's finally Friday and it's the LONG weekend! YAY!
Anyway, back on topic. I got this sample from one of my Skinfood purchases back in Korea. I actually ended up using this while I was in Korea and totally forgot about it until I was looking back at my photos.
