Etude House Blackhead Gommage Review

This is probably the post that some of you have been waiting for. I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, fellas.. I bought this blackhead gommage because I got annoyed by my nose that keeps lots of black and whiteheads. I want to get rid all of them!

I had been keeping my curiosity about this EH product and one day I decided that I should get one(: (This was also because I wanted to fulfill the minimum payment to become EH member xp)

*Note: I warn you, this post contains lots of nosy pics, I mean... nose.

I can't read this. Anyone?

The directions

It looks like mud. It's not too thick and not too watery. I also feel that the scrub beads are not too grainy.

Usually after I clean my face with facial foam, I'll dry my nose and the area around it then start using the gommage. 
Rub and massage it gently and the 'mud like' will transform like the pic above. After few seconds or a minute, I wash it off with warm water.

Before using


My Opinion:

I like how it feels to my skin after wash off the residue. My nose feels so smooth and slippery. hoho..
I think the more you use it regularly, the more you could see the difference before and after. That's all our skin care do, right? the results only happen for real if we continue to use the products xp

I can't really say that I'm into this product because I used to have scrub soap that much much cheaper and has greater performance than this gommage. The bad thing is, the scrub soap was easily shrink and I could only get it from hair salon.

So, what do you think about this product and the result? tell me!(:

My Beauty Diary Mask Review

I finally have a chance to try My Beauty Diary Mask. I have wanted to try this mask brand since the first time I saw it at Eki's blog post. Then I noticed that many beauty bloggers have tried also and they made such great reviews.

The bad news is, MBD is so hard to get in Indo and I don't have credit card, so I can't buy it from overseas online shop like sasa or amazon etc. 

After tried to find local importer and I got it from facebook. For Indonesian who wants to try MBD. I recommend you to go here. The range selections are not to many, but it's a good start for beginner like me. 

How To Use My Beauty Diary Mask:

1. Cleanse face thoroughly before applying mask 
2. Excess essence from the packaging may be applied on the neck by massage 
3. After 20 minutes, remove mask and gently massage face to assist absorption 
4. Rinsing is not required 
5. You may apply toner, moisturizer etc. after application
6. Use daily for maximum effect

I love the mask. Very unique scent combination. But it was a little disappointing. I expected to smell more ice cream scent..

Here few pics of me wearing the masks. Please ignore my 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' faces.

Happy, healthy and refresh face after used the mask. 

The conclusion is:
The masks are moisturizing, RICH of essence, refresh and soothes the exhausted skin, nice scents and also affordable. 

I can't pick my favorite because actually, I couldn't distinguish the difference between each mask because I only used them once. But I will repurchase few of them (because I don't really love black cherry choco and red wine) and the other types to see more improvement to skin.

I highly recommend this brand! (just like everyone who has tried it)

Experience yourself guys! You won't regret it! ^^
