Yay or Nay: Pond's Cold Cleansing Cream

Hi, Guys!

I watched Magic Mike XXL today!
I mostly went to see Channing Tatum's body and it did not disappoint :)
Also, the move theater had such comfortable seats, which is great!
One weird thing was that there were a lot more guys, especially middle aged man, watching the movie.

Anyway, today I decided to do a review of a Pond's Cold Cleansing Cream.

It is a very affordable product.
It retails for about $5 at Target. (Check it out here)

However, to cut to the chase, I would not recommend this product.
It does a decent job at removing my face makeup, but doesn't really remove my mascaras. I used a similar product by Nature Republic and that did remove my mascara, so I wasn't impressed by this product. Also, the total deal breaker for me is that I pick up a hair chemical scent from this product. However, the weird thing is that my mom and my sister doesn't pick up any scent from this product, even though they are using it too. However, the scent is way too strong for me to keep using this product.

You can watch my review for more detail:

Have you guys considered using this product? Did you guys like it?

I hope you found this review helpful!

New Hair & June 2015 Favorites!

Hi, Guys!
So guess what?
I cut my hair today !
My hair length was till my boob.
Now it's a little past my shoulder and I am super happy with how it turned out.

I also did something else to my hair after I filmed my June Favorites Video.
However, I am not going to say what it is yet, because I want to explain the backstory behind it first.

Anyway, I want to talk about my June Favorites.
I just can't believe half of 2015 is gone already.
June wasn't a great or terrible month. It was a month of relaxation for me.
How was your June?

Here's a list of my June Favorites:

Song Favorites: 
Selena Gomez - Good For You 
Sam Hunt - Take Your Time 
Jana Kramer - Love 
                   I Got The Boy 

Watch my video for details of each products: 
What was your favorites for June? What do you think of my June favorites? Have you tried any of the products I mentioned? 

Daily Bits: 
  • I am going to go watch Magic Mike XXL tomorrow! I watched the first one before, and I wasn't super into the story. However, I love Channing Tatum so I have to go see this one too!
  • I think I have found a place to go to for soondae (Korean sausage)! There just wasn't a good place to go to for a while, ever since my favorite place closed down. However, I tried a new place today and it was sooooooo good! Even my sister liked it, and she doesn't even like soondae. 
  • While, I was removing my makeup today, I found a little bump on my eyeball. That sounds weird and I have no idea why I have a bump there. I am not sure if I should go to the eye doctor about it. What do you guys think?

IT Cosmetics Contest & Birchbox June 2015

Hi Guys!
Happy July!

Today, I found out that I didn't make it to the second round of It Cosmetics #VoteITGirl contest (I forgot to make a blog post about my entry). I honestly wasn't expecting to make it to the second round but wanted to enter for fun. However, I would still love it if you can check out my entry video. I loved the glamorized smokey look that I did in the video!

You can check out It Cosmetic YouTube page to see who made the top 20! (or you can click here). I am so happy for everyone who made it to Top 20!

Serein Wu from DressYourSelfHappy made it to Top 20.
She is one of my favorite youtuber and I am so happy for her!
I have been watching her channel for a little over a year and am very proud of her accomplishments and growth.
She is one of my inspiration and I hope I can meet her one day.
Check out her channel:

Aside from that, I wanted to share my June Birchbox with you guys today! 
I know it's already the first day of July, but better late than never, right?

Ipsy June 2015!

Hi, Guys!
How have you guys been?
NYC has been having some rain these days.
It has been very humid and disgusting.
How is the weather like in your area?

Anyway, I have decided that I am no longer going to be sharing Ipsy and Birchbox together.
Instead, I'll be sharing them separately.
And today, I am finally sharing what I received in Ipsy this month.
(Curious about Birchbox? Don't worry! That post will be up early next week!)

For those of you who don't know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service. It is $10 a month and each month they sent 4-5 deluxe or full size products. It is a great way to try new and different products!


Here is a picture of my June Ipsy bag:

Products I received:

  • Jules & Ester Vitamin C Serum 
  • Smashbox Cosmetics Photofinish Foundation Primer 
  • Key West Aloe Mango Moisturizing Lotion 
  • SheaMoisture Shea Butter Lip Crayon in Sarah 
  • tre'stiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Kona Coffee 
For more detail thoughts and look into the bag: 

Overall, this month's bag was good mix of makeup and skincare items. However, there were nothing that stood out to me. Likewise, none of the products were terrible. I can definitely see myself using these products. But, I am just not excited to be trying them. 

What did you thing of Ipsy this month? What was your favorite item? What was your least favorite item?
