My Favourite Things is a precursor to TC’s Treasures. Starting in November 2016, all My Favourite Things posts will be known as TC’s Treasures.
First Tuesday of the month means it’s time to do Raisa and Eirene’s wonderful link-up, My Favourite Things. Like February, March had me trying out several new beauty products! I’m especially obsessed with one of them and cannot stop using it! I also learned something about oil cleansers this month, too, and experienced some breakouts, but I quickly figured out the issue on that. I learn new things all the time, apparently. With that said, here are my favourites!
Missha’s Speedy Solution Firming Eye Patch
I’ve been wanting to try under-eye patches for a while. Eddy and I stopped by Missha because he was going to buy something, and I saw that these were 50% off! I bought two packs of 10 for 10,000 won ($9.00 USD), and I’ve tried them three times now, and so far they seem to be decent. I like how they’re easy to stick on; they don’t slide off, so yay for that! I hope to see some improvement with regular usage. They do make me look like a raccoon, though!
Skinfood’s Argan Oil Silk+ Hair Mask Pack
I was talking to Eddy about how I don’t really like to use conditioner in my hair because every time I rinse it off, it always feels greasy, as if the conditioner isn’t rinsing out no matter what I do. He suggested to try this hair mask pack for 9,000 won ($8.00 USD), which is like a conditioner, but better. I love how it leaves my hair silky and soft. I leave it on for about 10-15 minutes, and when I rinse it off, it doesn’t feel like greasy like the conditioner! I’ve been using this about once a week so far, and my hair seems far healthier than before.
Skinfood’s Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil
Since Innisfree decided to be typical and discontinue my favourite gel cleanser that I use to double-cleanse, I decided to try an oil cleanser to clean my face at night, to remove all the sunscreen and grime that I’ve accumulated on my face. I bought Skinfood’s oil cleanser when it was on sale for 30%. It normally costs 16,000 won ($15.00 USD), but I bought it for 11,200 won ($10.50 USD). This smells exactly like the brand’s black sugar mask. The one thing I learnt about using the oil cleanser is that I cannot combine it with the cleanser below . . .
Lush’s Angels on Bare Skin
I love this cleanser, though it is pricey at 22,000 won ($21.00 USD), but it’s not meant to be combined with the oil cleanser above! I started breaking out! The oil residue wasn’t being washed away with this clay-based cleanser, hence the breakouts. Instead, I’ve switched up my routine to use this in the morning when I don’t use the oil cleanser, and that’s been working out a lot better. I really do like this cleanser — it has no surfactants and preservatives, and its lavender scent is amazing. Plus, it leaves my face feeling nice and soft!
Lush’s Dirty Body Spray
Lastly, this body spray is my life! It’s priced at a whopping 41,500 won ($40.00 USD), but it’s worth it for me. I haven’t been crazy about body spray in a long time, but this scent completely owns me. Eddy wears it regularly, and he told me that the scent is unisexual. I tried it once and never looked back. It’s minty and has a spicy undertone that I just love. Seriously, I cannot stop using it. I truly wish for an endless supply of this spray!
