Magazine Freebie & Simple Review of Etude House Cleansing Foam

Cleo August issue comes with a free Nuxe Aroma-Perfection Purifying Cleansing Gel.
Lady Gaga was on the cover
200ml bottle with a pump nozzle

It is suitable for combination and oily skin (that's my type of skin!)
I've used this for a couple of times and the result is ok. Not too fantastic as my face does get oily after awhile, albeit not as oily as usual.

Just wanted to do a simple review on the below cleanser as well.
Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Foam in Green Tea
After using this cleanser for a couple of weeks, i find that it really helps to control my skin's oil and sebum production. Eventhough it is not a high end brand, the result is really good. It smells great, something like a lemon-y type of smell, instead of green tea. It foams easily when lathered with water. After washing, my face feels clean and not too dry. If comparing this with the Clarins Cleansing Foam with Cottonseed, i would say this is the better choice. Another plus is that it is not too pricey. I think it is below SGD20.
Anyway, for the past week, my face feels smoother. I was thinking that it might be the effect of using the 2 below samples from Clarins:
Clarins Multi-Active Day (Early wrinkle correction cream-gel)

Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum

I'm not sure what are the retail prices but i'm guessing it can be around SGD100? Still considering if i should get one of it..hmmm...

Thanks for reading!

Paul & Joe Haul

My first official haul from Paul & Joe!
Lip Gloss N with Eye Color

Closer look

Eye Color in 10, a pink base with shimmers. Taken with flash.

Eye Color in 11, a yellow base. Taken with flash.

Swatches under flash.

Swatches under natural sun light. Pink eyeshadow on the left and yellow on the right. Lip gloss is a clear gloss with pink shimmers.

Top up with a Protective Dual Powder Foundation UV for the freebies =)
I love the casing. It's so pretty!

It has SPF 20 PA++ and the SA recommended color 20 for me. Oops, i forgot to swatch it.

Freebies! Clockwise from top left: Deep Cleansing Milk samples, a mini bottle of Cleansing Milk N, Creamy Compact Powder Foundation and Moisturising Foundation Primer samples. Not forgetting 2 pouches with the Summer Collection prints.

This sample looks interesting. It's a creamy foundation that turns to powder upon application.
I was a little worried it might clog my pores but the SA assured me it wouldn't.

The sample came with a mini sponge. Lovely!
