Hello my lovelies,

How have you been lately? I'm good at the fact that I don't have as much pain as I had in the beginning :) I think it -whatever it is- starts to heal..? Of course I am still mostly tied to my bed but at least I feel a bit more comfy now.

Today I'll be giving you short reviews on some really raved about products from Etude House! I just love that brand, they have the most cute package design ever *__* Unfortunately I wasn't able to buy anything when I was in Japan but I definitely will next year when I'll be studying in Korea ♥  But so long I am really happy that there is still Ebay to our service.

I bought the items with my own money and as always the reviews are 100% my own opinion :) I don't remember the exact store where I bought them but if you search for "Etude House" on Ebay you should get quite some results. I was able to find any product I wanted off of Ebay, yayz! Prices were also very reasonable (but I don't know about the original prices in Korea, so..)


This has the most amazing package design ever made in my opinion! :D To be honest with you: I only bought it because of the packaging, I mean, LOOK AT THE PANDA <3 Aw, I just love this little thing. There are other designs such like penguins but I liked this most plus peach scent was just fine for me.

As for the price, I paid 5€ in total with shipping. Item arrived safely wrapped and in good condition after two weeks at my doorstep. So how is this? Honestly, this hand cream is amazing. As a barista, my hands are almost always dry when I'm at work and I can't stand the feeling of dry hands >_<" This cream, however is the perfect solution: It has a very light formula which means it dries very(!) fast on the hands and it doesn't leave you with that sticky feeling afterwards you often get. I also love the scent, it's a subtle peach, not overwhelmingly, but sweet enough to notice. Plus, I love to carry this around in my bag.

Would I buy this procuct again? Yes, yes and YES! One of the best hand creams I owned and not only design-wise :)


This is the sample size of the famous and internet-raved-about pore cleanser(?) Wonder Pore. I wanted to try this because a looooot of bloggers said how amazing it was and well, I just couldn't resist. Since my skin is super picky and breaks out easily, I decided to buy a sample size kit where this one was also included. Turned out to be the best idea.

What do I think of this? Well. When I tried it out for the first or second time, the bottle fell down and almost half of the thing went straight into the sink =__= I was like "Nooooooooooooooo" my precious Wonderporethingy..... I then tried it out for a week or so and have to say, I am not even sure if there's anything inside there despite water. I didn't see ANY effect. Anything at all. I don't know if it's me or the product but I was really disappointed since it did nothing good for me. I am really happy that I've chosen the sample size :) So one and all, one hit and one miss in this post.

This is the sample size kit I've bought but I still need to try out the other products. Since my skin condition is so difficult I can only try out one skin product once at a time because otherwise, I wouldn't know which product would cause which effect :) Anything you are curious about? I still have to try out the Real Art Cleansing Oil, a moisturizer which name I don't remember, a BB Cream and something I have yet to find out what its used for (an illuminizer, maybe?). I really look forward to try out all the neat products once I've arrived in Korea. Depending on their new line, I might as well jump to Ebay as a help if I can't wait...

Hope this was somehow useful, wish you all an awesome day! ♥ 

Lots of love & Talk to you all soon,

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
