Etude House CC Cream 01 Silky

Etude House CC Cream 01 Silky Review

Etude House CC Cream 01 Silky Review for you~

Guys. Seriously. I’m dying. Because I ate too much chocolate and junk food today. Really. I never knew this could happen, but it did. I actually have to study my… off because I have 3 exams tomorrow. But I feel so stuffed, that I cannot concentrate properly. Students tend to get fat. It’s true. All these people buying pizza, cookies and energy drinks. they’re all students getting fat. Or maybe they don’t because they’re one of these “always-eating-never-gaining” kind of humans. but I am not. so I will see this food on my body in a few days. Even so, my skin it getting really dry and itchy since I started eating chocolate again.

And well, here is the product I am using during the stressful time to hide redness and skin troubles without looking like wearing makeup: The Etude House CC Cream 01 Silky!

 

I bought it at TokkiHaus.de.

This pose, so fab lol.

The CC Cream comes in a kind of tube with pump applicator. This is what the cream looks like taking one pump:

You can see, first it’s some white cream with some darker crumbs in it and if you spread it over your skin, it gets a light beige color, that matches to your skin color. The texture is very light and silky.

Sorry for the big difference in lightening, it somehow falsifies the result a bit actually. But I think you can see that it is not covering my freckles completely. The redness near my nose is gone without looking like I am wearing any makeup. It really looks like I just used some moisturizing day cream. If you wonder, why my skin looks so even on the first pic – I used powder after the CC Cream because that day I needed more coverage.

Etude House CC Cream 01 Silky Review:

What I love:

  • the Coverage – light, reducing redness but looking naturally at the same time, perfect for lazy days! also, if you just don’t need makeup but want to hide red areas
  • the Feeling – you almost don’t feel like using anything but daycream
  • the Price – is okay, I think as most of their products, best value for money. I purchased more expensive CC Creams and of course they’re better, but as I said, more expensive. For everyday use, this price is absolutely affordable.
  • the Color – finally a cream, that fits my skin tone. most of the bb and cc creams in germany (I still wonder if I am the only one) a way too dark and look cakey on my skin.

What I hate:

  • not long lasting – after a day at university, I came home looking like I just stood up – the CC Cream was gone. Without a base this is really not a problem at all, but my skin also was a bit dry. I guess my skin condition is the reason for that, but actually the description promised that the cream is moisturizing the skin for a healthy look. so I am thinking so so about this point.

All in all I have to say, I love this product so far. even though I had dry skin, I will continue using it, because I really don’t know if it is because I have about 2 exams every day and it’s just the stress, that causes the dry skin, that even the cream can’t help. The cream fits my skin tone perfectly, what is really one of the reasons, I never purchased any CC cream in germany. they’re all too dark in the end. I just purchased one BB Cream in a local drug store and.. never again because too expensive for about 5 minutes lasting cream. at  THE BODYSHOP I was trying the CC Creams and the lightest shade was about two tones darker and more yellow than mine… I don’t know what are others doing with lighter skin than me?? That’s why I like the Etude House CC Cream so much ^-^

In this picture I am wearing the CC Cream as a base and used powder to mattify my skin a bit. It still looks very natural in my opinion.

It’s already midnight in germany, and I have 3 important exams tomorrow so I should say goodbye for now and study.. Sleep well and hopefully see you here next time! XOXO

TokkiHaus – Korean Beauty Online Shop!

Shop Review: TokkiHaus.de!

TokkiHaus.de – Korean Beauty Online Shop!

Hey guys! Today I have something interesting for german readers: Korean cosmetics from Germany!

Because I love korean cosmetics, I decided to order something at cute beauty shop TokkiHaus.de!

TokkiHaus.de

even the company logo is cute!

TokkiHaus.de is a German online shop that sells korean beauty products. Their shop site is easy to navigate and the design is very cute, not too bold but gentle pink and just right my style. Haha. The main brands they sell are TonyMoly and Etude House. Perfect, I don’t need anything more haha. I was looking for the TonyMoly Handcream for such a long time but all I found in the internet was too expensive (some offers were about 20€ – crazy!) and when I saw the panda looking at me I almost cried. Cuteness Overload!ヽ(;▽;)ノ

Even if you want to buy another korean beauty product that they don’t sell, the shop offers to manage to get it for you. I think that is a really nice option.

The most important: How much is it? I love korean cosmetics because mostly the price is affordable and the quality is good. But if you order for example from Amazon, you will notice the extremely high prices, because of shipping fees and taxes and suddenly the price is not worth the product anymore. In my opinion, TokkiHaus’ offers are the best. Their prices are unbeatable and you receive it in two or three days without paying taxes. Even though the products are from Korea, I didn’t pay much and received so many products.

I paid around 4,90 € for shipping, but if you order something for 50€ you don’t need to pay the shipping!

I ordered right before christmas, when many shops struggle with delivering the packages in time. Actually I ordered the products for myself and wasn’t expecting the package to arrive before christmas. I ordered spontaneously on sunday evening and received the package at tuesday morning!! Very fast! I was really surprised o(^▽^)o

Now let’s see what I ordered:

 TokkiHausEverything arrived safely thanks to the soft packaging

Inside:

  • TonyMoly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch x2
  • TonyMoly Panda’s Dream Whitening Hand Cream
  • Etude House Drawing Show Brush Liner in Black
  • Etude House XOXO Minnie Nail Color #03
  • Etude House Dear Girls Cute Eyes Maker
  • TonyMoly Delight Circle Lens Mascara

Two free samples came with my order! ー( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

TokkiHaus

I was so happy when I saw all the cute products ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

All in all this is the best shop I have ordered at this year! I will definitely order again! If you love korean beauty products you have to visit TokkiHaus.de (click to go to their Facebook Page)!

This is the Etude House XOXO Minnie Nail Color #03!

not so fresh anymore xD

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in Cherry Peach:

What I love:

  • The Color – Nice and gentle applied once, little bolder with double application. My mum immediately said it looks very natural and gentle.
  • The Consistence – Smooth and not sticky!
  • The Quality – Longlasting and and not dry, really good for daily use!
  • The Price – Fair! Good Quality, but not available in germany..

What I hate:

  • The Taste – like disinfection spray..

But if you drink or eat, you cannot taste it. Somehow just right after you apply it. All in all, I LOVE IT. most cutest and best lip tint I ever used. I will definitely spend my money on another one – another shade.

Hope you like my little Etude House Fresh Tint Review and come over again!

Stay healthy!~
