Tony Moly Egg Pore Tightening Cooling Pack*

Hiya! I just washed off a strip of this stuff off my nose + a bit of my cheek area. It’s the Tony Moly Egg Pore Tightening Cooling Pack*, which is a most welcome source of relief from the heat and sweaty summer. Product Description The enhanced ice corset pore pack tightens open and loose pores seamlessly with a cooling effect that covers the pore. I’ve always been skeptical of pore packs (pores don’t “open” or “close”) but there are certain masks and products that reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and this is one such product. It’s water-based and has kaolin clay as the second ingredient. Kaolin clay, even by itself, is widely used as a face mask since it absorbs oil. White Kaolin also has an astringent effect, removing impurities from the skin.

Long time, no see. I don’t know if you remember me (haha), but hi! I haven’t been around because… I haven’t been buying new stuff and I guess I went through (am going through?) a few crises at the moment that don’t leave me much time for beauty pursuits. I’m making an effort again, though. Because it turns out that I actually really like doing this. So, hi! Again. So, I guess I wanted to say that yes, I’ve been wearing makeup still though not as much as I used to, and no, I haven’t been taking care of my skin as well as I ought to, maybe. I’m working on it, though, do not judge. I’ve been wearing a few staples lately, though, namely the Urban Decay Naked 3 and the shu uemura ME medium brown 885 mainly, for eyeshadow. I’ve also been going to town with winged liner. I like it! For this look, I wore my OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Lydia, but I took this after I got home from dinner …
