And of course you know they’d have a clearance section! This is their closeout section. You get extra savings on these products because they won’t be carrying them anymore. They have a note up to assure you there is nothing wrong with the products, so you don’t have to worry about anything being expired or tampered with.

Product pages
The product pages have lots of info for you. There’s a quick overview that gives you a brief rundown on the product. There’s an options dropdown where you can see what purchasing options you have for that product, the quantity you want and the add cart, add review and wishlist buttons. If you scroll down more you’ll find lots of more goodies. There’s a features area that gives you a much better description of the product you are looking at. They even have an area that shows what they recommend the product for. So if you have dark spots or large pores, it’ll let you know if you should try that product or not. Then they have an area for how to use the product, and more product info and ingredients! Many of the listings have ingredients listed, but some do not. But I have noticed that ingredients are hard to get for Korean products.

She likes them!

Just the kiddos!

Just a few pictures of the kiddos from the other night. Sascha was not bothered by me getting some pictures for once. XD And I trimmed Fumiko’s bangs back again, they were getting too long. She likes her “bang bangs” to be very precise. She likes them cut one way and one way only. XD

I have a very bad ear ache. T.T My right ear is killing me and the headache is not helping. To top it off I feel like I have the flu from hell and keep getting sick to my stomach. Boo. I really wanted to swatch today, but the sun didn’t come out. It’s been raining, which I love, just not when I need to swatch. XD Hopefully the sun comes out tomorrow. I hope everyone is enjoying Autumn so far, when it’s not hot anyways.

Acne Control Body Wash & Face Wash samples

Review: Dial® Acne Control Face Wash & Body Wash

sponsored

Hello Minks! So I received some samples of Dial’s® Acne Control Face Wash and Body Wash from Dial thanks to BzzAgent. I tried them out for a little while and this is what I think!

Official description
Face Wash
Enjoy clearer looking skin in just three days. This oil-free face wash is formulated with maximum strength salicylic acid, to help clear and prevent breakouts while caring for skin.

Body Wash
Treat acne beyond the face with this oil-free body wash. Formulated with maximum-strength salicylic acid, it is developed with dermatologists and clinically proven to help give you clearer looking skin in three days.

Where to buy
Face Wash
From Walmart – 7.5 fluid ounces for $4.47 USD. Comes in a pump style bottle.

Body Wash
From Walmart – 12 fluid ounces for $5.47 USD. Comes in a flip top lid bottle.

Use the store finder to find it locally. It’s not widely available online.

Directions
Face Wash
Cleanse twice a day. Wet face. Apply to hands, add water And work into a lather. Massage face gently. Rinse thoroughly.

Body Wash
Use daily in shower or bath. For maximum lather, massage over wet skin with a wash cloth or body proof, concentrating on areas prone to breakouts. Rinse well.

Packaging
I received samples. They were foil packets on one sheet, separated by perforated lines. Each had a body wash sample and a face wash sample and a coupon attached. The packets are white with blue lettering and accents and pictures of the face wash and body wash bottles. The back side of the packets have the product information.

Scent and formula
Both products have a light fresh citrusy smell. Both formulas are a thick, slightly tinted clear gel. They both lather up quite well.

Ingredients
Face Wash
Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 2% Inactive Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Juice, Citrus Paradisis (grapefruit) Juice, Passiflora Edulis Fruit Juice, Cocamidopropyl Pg-dimonium Chloride, Fragrance, Isostearamidopropyl Morpholine Lactate, Polyquaternium-10, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Peg-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, Tetrasodium Edta, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Chloride, Yellow 5, Red 4.

Body Wash
Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 2% Inactive Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Fragrance, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Juice, Citrus Paradisis (grapefruit) Juice, Passiflora Edulis Fruit Juice, Cocamidopropyl Pg-dimonium Chloride, Isostearamidopropyl Morpholine Lactate, Polyquaternium-10, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Peg-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, Tetrasodium Edta, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Chloride, Yellow 5, Red 4.

I used the body wash for about 5 days and the face wash for just over a week. I really liked the smell of these. It’s light and fresh and not overpowering. The scent doesn’t linger after you rinse your face or body. The first day I used these I had no reactions and my skin felt fresh, however after continued use they dried my skin out. The body wash dried my skin out a lot. I found myself having to use moisturizer after each shower, which I haven’t had to do in awhile. I don’t have body acne normally. Occasionally I’ll get a zit on my chest, but that only happens a few times a year. So I can’t tell you how this works with body acne. I have dry skin in general and usually use some kind of soap/body wash/whipped soap that is moisturizing. So that’s probably why this dried my skin out so much. Here is the CosDNA report.

The face wash didn’t dry my face out as bad as the body wash did to my body. Nonetheless it did dry it out. I found that in the time it took me to get out of the shower, dry off and go to my bedroom to start my skin routine my face was dry and tight. I had to use my spray mist more than usual as well. I have combination skin, my cheeks get super dry while my nose and forehead get oily. Since it’s getting cooler my nose and forehead are not getting as oily as usual. I don’t get a lot of acne on my face. It’s usually a zit here or there a few times a month. I really only breakout when I try a new product and it irritates my skin. So while this cleansed well, I don’t know how it works with acne. So the bottom line is, I liked the scent of these, but they just don’t work for my skin. Here is the CosDNA report.

Weekly Poll

Weekly Poll: No.2 Do You Contour?

Yay it’s a new poll! So this weeks question is “Do you contour?”. Well do you? Why or why not? I have seen some insane contouring, that I don’t think I could ever be that dedicated to.

My answer
I do. When I remember to. It’s not all that important to me so I tend to forget. I do like it when I remember though.

What's your favorite type of lip product to wear?

AH HE HAS NO FACE

The Pumpkin Patch 2014

Fumiko’s dad took the kiddos to the pumpkin patch yesterday. I forgot to charge my camera battery and it was dead. So these are from his cell phone. They got to go through the haunted maze and try to find clues to solve the farmer’s murder. Unfortunately they got tired after finding half the clues, so they didn’t get to find out who murdered him, but they had fun. They each got to pick a pumpkin and picked out nice big pumpkins to carve. I’m thinking this coming Saturday we’ll dig into them. They both woke up really sick this morning with high fevers. They’re both feeling better so to school they go in the morning. I’ll be giving them some more medicine in the morning before school, which will make them super happy. >.>

They also got to pick out costumes before we went to the pumpkin patch. Sascha picked out a skull ninja costume with ninja swords and Fumiko got a Draculaura costume from Monster High and a cute skull bag for trick or treating. Though I think she plans on wearing the witch costume I got for her. I found a really cute witch dress and a sparkly bat witch hat at the thrift store. Found out after we got home that it lights up. So she’s all happy about that. I had a migraine for part of this week, which turned into a headache, which now feels like it’s getting worse again. Boo. Anyways. Pictures.

Oh also. You may have noticed my blog was going batshit crazy today. D: I’m not sure when it started. It was fine after I made my last blog post on Saturday, but this morning it was just… blank. So I sent in a help ticket. Which didn’t go so well. At first they couldn’t figure it out, then added some script to some file, which made WordPress show up kind of… It was showing posts that were years old and the whole page was a jumbled mess. They finally figured out that a plugin was causing the error. Turns out it was one I updated on Saturday, that apparently got updated again between the time that I updated it and my blog went down because it was causing an error.

It was a very stressful day waiting to see what happened, and then seeing files getting removed was even scarier. But they ended up restoring files and I had to go through and enable plugins one by one to see which one was causing the issue, they messaged me AFTER I was mostly done to let know which two they thought it was. But all is well now, I hope. *knocks on wood* I had planned on doing round 3 of my Aromaleigh swatches, but the blog went cuckoo and the sun didn’t come out to play at all, and well I need Mr. Sun to come out so I can do them. So hopefully tomorrow is a better day for swatches! Also hopefully headache doesn’t turn into migraine.

Unboxing: Memebox Global #15

purchased by me affiliate links

So back in June when they were giving you 15 points for signing up and had some 15 point coupons running around I was able to get a box! I chose the Global #15 box. It didn’t ship until the end of September and just arrived today. Hooray! I am really happy with what I got. :D

Mise en scene Perfect Repair Treatment Pack 180mL
Product description
Fullsize product. $16 value. A 2-step hair care – shampoo and rinse – isn’t enough as the weather becomes chillier and drier. Twice a week, use this nourishing Perfect Repair Treatment Pack to deliver deep nutrition and repair and protect damaged hair ends.

How to use
After shampooing, apply the treatment pack throughout your hair and rinse off after 2-3 minutes.

I was excited to receive this. My poor hair is dry and damaged from bleaching it and I’ve needed something for it badly. I’m not too keep on the smell. It’s perfumey, like, old person perfume perfumey. I’m hoping the scent won’t linger after use.

Ingredients
I can’t find the ingredients in english.


Mise en scene Perfect Serum 70mL
Product description
Full size product. $9 value. This highly-concentrated Perfect Serum is to be used before and/or after blow drying to give your hair the silky, well-nourished finish. It’s enriched with 7 different neutral oils – argan, camellia, olive, jojoba, coconut, apricot and marula – and its oil-like formula quickly absorb into the hair without making it sticky or greasy.

How to use
After towel-drying, take a dime-side amount of the serum on your palm and massage it in throughout your hair. It can be used multiple times a day.

This has the exact same scent as the Repair Treatment Pack.

Ingredients
I can’t find any ingredients in english.


Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Foam
Product description
Full size product. $8 value. Abundant, cream-like foam bubbles penetrate deep into your pores, cleansing away any makeup residues, skin impurities, blackheads and dead skin cells piled up and leaving your skin freshly cleaned, moist and brighter overall.

How to use
Take an adequate amount on your hands, lather it well and gently massage onto your face. Rinse off with warm water.

It has a lemon-lime and slightly herbal scent. I quite like the smell. Hopefully this foams up well. I don’t know what the pH is. A friend is sending me some strips so I can start testing things though, so I will edit this later when I find out! I will be trying this tonight!

Ingredients
Glycerin, acid pre-Stick, Water, Butylene Glycol, Potassium cocoyl glycidyl carbonate, potassium hydroxide, stearic acid, cocamidopropyl betaine, Rick Lau acid, sodium methyl cocoyl Tau rate, blood’s -40 stearate, glyceryl stearate, stearate -100’s blood, the living tree fruit extract, chamomile flower / leaf extract, rosemary extract, pine extract, bear, sanseberiah Leaf Extract, Bergamot fruit oil, lemon peel oil, eucalyptus leaf oil, sunflower seed oil, Europe pine leaf oil, lime oil, orange peel oil, tocopheryl acetate, sodium tree this itty, mineral water, oxygen, phenoxyethanol.


TonyMoly BCDation All Master SPF30 PA++ 20g
Product description
Deluxe sample. $24 value. TonyMoly‘s all-new BCDation marks a break-through in the world of BB creams, CC creams and foundations by combining all 3 into one smart -multi-player that offers all the benefits of its predecessors – natural-looking makeup, high coverage, moisturizing and light texture, whitening effect, anti-wrinkle care, long-lasting skin radiance.

How to use
Apply an adequate amount of the BCDation evenly over your face and gently pat it inusing your fingers to enhance it’s adherence. Apply another layer over areas in need of more coverage.

This looks interesting. When I applied it on my hand it was a little too dark and when it set it showed all the lines and looked cakey or something. Hopefully it works better on the face. It has that usual light/fresh/floral scent that a lot of bb creams have.


miss.age Snail Anti Wrinkle Serum
Product description
Full size product. $53 value. Containing over 5500mg of snail mucus extracts, this Snail Anti Wrinkle Serum revives damaged skin with abundant moisture and nutrition while treating signs of aging by tightening and lifting up sagging skin and improving skin elasticity.

How to use
Apply the serum evenly over your face and pat it in for full absorbance.

Ah this is so awesome. I’m excited to try it. I love me some snail. <3 This smells very similar to the BCDation. It’s a really light fresh/floral almost fruity scent. You have to pretty much snort it to get a good whiff.


Tosowoong Makeon Lip Manicure 30 Seconds 5.5g
Product description
Full size product. $12 value. Made from naturally-derived essential oils, the Makeon Lip Manicure 30 Seconds is gentle to skin and offers a long-lasting color radiance that will never smudge or wear away. All you ever need is a quick 30 seconds to create the perfectly vibrant, supple lips!

How to use
Using the lip manicure tip, apply it thinly over your lip as if coating a layer of manicure and do not close your mouth for at least 30 to 60 seconds.

I was so happy to see that I got Sweet Raspberry! That’s the one I wanted. :D The colors are randomly selected from Cynical Plum, Rouge Coral, Pure Peach, Sweet Raspberry and Real Red. This is a liquid lipstick. Once it’s set, it stays on pretty well. I only had a little transfer while drinking tea. After a little bit it wore off around the inner area of my lips. The color is gorgeous though and it lasts a lot longer than regular lipsticks!

Ingredients
I can’t find any ingredients


Shara Shara I Wanna Pencil Gel Liner
Product information
Full size product. $8 value. Auto-type, long-lasting, waterproof and ultra-smooth in texture, Shara Shara’s I wanna Pencil Gel Liner softly spreads along your lash lines for a non-smudging, matte finish. It also includes a mini sharpener to be used conveniently.

How to use
Apply the gel eyeliner according to preference.

I received the Dark Brown shade. It also comes in Deep Black. I swatched this on the back of my hand. It went on very smooth and once set it didn’t budge when I tried to smudge it and rub it off. I don’t usually wear brown eyeliner, but this is a dark enough brown that I might like it. Either way I shall give it a try.

Ingredients
I can’t find any.

Overall I am very happy with this box! I will make use of most of the products for sure. Memebox is addicting. It’s probably a good thing I am penniless. XD
