Epielle Makeup Wipes

Please don't forget to enter the $75 gift card to SkinCareRx (click here to enter)! It ends July 4th at 11:59 pm PST.




Around October/November of last year, 2009, I bought three makeup wipes from Epielle (click here to see the other things I bought or received at the Korean Festival). It's not a popular brand but you will see this often in a lot of stores or at least I have... hehe~ I think I will review these since I'm on my third wipes. :)





Product Review: Epielle Cleansing Tissues in Green Tea, Aloe Vera, and Cucumber
Where can you purchase this: smaller stores but I got mine at a festival
Price: $1-2 but I got mine for 3 for $5 I believe

Made in Korea

Information on the back: Before I start, I don't have the package for the Green Tea one. I threw that one away but I believe it's the same one as the Aloe Vera.

Make-up Remover Cleansing Tissues have special dirt-trapping fibers that gently cleanse away dirt, oil, make-up, and even the toughest waterproof mascara. With the convenience of pre-moistened cloths, they work in seconds to leave you feeling smooth, fresh and completely clean-anytime, anywhere!

The cucumber one had different information.

Epielle Cucumber Cleansing Tissues have special dirt-trapping fibers that gently cleanse away dirt, oil make-up and even the toughest waterproof mascara. With the addition of Cucumber extract, the convenient pre-moistened tissues not only provide exceptional cleaning, but also leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. Freshen up without water-anytime, anywhere!

All of them have...

* Hypoallergenic
* Won't clog pores & moisturizes skin
* Safe for contact lens wearers
* Oil Free
* Refreshing

Direction on the back: Gently wipe face, using both side of cloth to deep clean and refresh, leaving no residue. Best if used within 45 days, after opening. Keep package tightly close, and store in a cool, dry place when not in use. After use, dispose of cloth in a trash receptacle. (do not flush)

Ingredients: There's a slight difference between the Green Tea/Aloe Vera and Cucumber. I will post both. This one is Green Tea/Aloe Vera.
This is for Cucumber.






My thoughts: When I first used the Green Tea, I liked it but towards the end of using the wipes I wasn't happy. For some odd reason, towards the end the wipes were dried. It was tough on my skin and it tugged. That doesn't help my wrinkle faced... lol~ :P I was kind of skeptical when it came to using the other two I have left, Aloe Vera and Cucumber. I was wrong!... lol~ The Aloe Vera one didn't dried out towards the end. Either I didn't close the Green Tea one well or I just had a bad bunch. I would like to think it's the second... lol~ :X I also noticed the wipes of the Cucumber one is different from the other two. I'm not too sure why but the Cucumber is more softer. It's also more flexible. In all, I think they're good wipes. They remove the makeup well! :)

Pros:
* Cheap.
* Made from Korea (being biased here... lol~).
* Removes the makeup well.
* Easy to carry around.
* Cucumber has softer wipes.
* Cucumber one smells like cucumber.

Cons:
* Green Tea dried out towards the end.
* Some have strong scent.

Would I buy this again? Yes.

I will talk a little about the different wipes... hehe~

Green Tea:
* It felt nice in the beginning.
* Dried out towards the end.
* It had a scent but I wasn't too keen on it.

Aloe Vera:
* It felt nice to the skin.
* It didn't dry out.
* The scent wasn't strong.

Cucumber:
* The wipes are the softest of the bunch.
* The wipes are made different than the other bunch.
* The wipes are flexible/stretchable.
* Smells like cucumber.
* The scent can get strong at times.


I'm going to end with couple of nail polishes I got in the past few months.
This is Nicole by OPI in Fresh Squeezed! I've been into peachy/coral colors... hehe~ I think the color is hot and do I need more in this color. Nope!... lol~ :X I got this free through the Seventeen magazine. They had a special towards the end of May for a free Nicole by OPI nail polish at Ulta. I believe it's over. Sorry my bad I should have posted this earlier!!!

I received two Etude House nail polishes from a friend.
This one is in #PK006. It's a metallic, pastel pink color.
This one is in #PK008. It's a light pink with glitters.

Thank you friend for these!!! :)

Empty Products of the Month of May

It's kind of strange coming back to post. :/ I don't know why though... lol~ I feel like so much has happened in my life that I shouldn't be writing this. :X Okay, I'm weird... lol~ :P


Anyways, I'm kind of late but it's still good. I'm going to talk about my "Empty Products of the Month of May."
L'oreal Volume Shocking Mascara


I did a review of this (click here to read it) and I still stand with that opinion. I was actually glad to finish this. Okay, I didn't finish it but got rid of it since I used it for three months... hehe~


Would I buy this again? I doubt it. :X


Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion


I received this sample size and was glad to use it! Since I'm allergic to oxybenzone, this is a good sunblock for me. If you're looking for sunscreen that doesn't give a white sheen, then this isn't for you... hehe~ :P I'm happy with this but I think they changed the product unfortunately. I actually like this better than the new formula. :X


Would I buy this again? I would have if I could find it... hehe~


Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


My makeup buddy gave me this (click here to read the post), and it took like a year and half to finish it. This was the only top coat I used and loved it!!! I'm really impatient when it comes to painting my nails. I cannot just sit there and let it dry. Since this dries within couple of minutes, it was perfect for me. Towards the end of using this, I needed a nail polish thinner. I still think it's worth it even though the consistency can get thick!... hehe~ :) I didn't get a back up because I'm trying to get rid of the other top coats I have *sigh*.


Would I buy this again? Of course!!!


Healing Garden Relax Therapy Green Tea


I got this from a friend. It came in a set and actually liked it. I thought I wouldn't like the smell but it wasn't bad!... hehe~ I love body wash that gives me foamy texture. It feels like I'm actually being clean for some odd reason. It's me more than anything... lol~ :P


Would I buy this again? Yes.


That's the only thing for me, but Tobey wanted to chip in with the "Empty Products of the Month" for May... lol~
Before:
After:
He definitely got a good use with that doll... lol~ :P




I going to end with a video. I hope it cheers you guys up as much as it does me!... hehe~

I saw this ice cream for dogs beginning of this year (click here to read a post about this) and decided to get Tobey one. I didn't know what to expect, therefore, I video taped it. He loved it a lot!!!... lol~ :)

Gift Certificate to CSN Stores Giveaway Winner

I apologize for not announcing the winner right away! I will tell you later on in this post if you are interested in reading. Now to what you probably came for *drum roll*...
I had 70 people who entered. Thank you for entering!!! :) The winner is
screw ball :)


Congrats screw ball :) and you have 48 hours to contact me with your e-mail address. My e-mail is aly_4realz (at) hotmail (dot) com. If you don't contact me within 48 hours, I will announce a new winner.


Thank you CSN Stores for sponsoring this giveaway!!! :)




For the people who read that I was away, probably thought I had a flu or something in that line. To be honest, I wish I had a flu!!! Unfortunately, I ended up getting into a car accident.
It doesn't look that bad in this picture, but it is. My car doesn't drive at all!!! :( I try to do a nice thing by helping an emotional friend and in the end, bad things happened to me *sigh*. My car was the one ruined that doesn't run. One of the person in the other car acted like she had a heart attack. I was the one injured! When it happened, I didn't notice any pain. Several hours later when everything stunk in, I started feeling pain around my elbow. I noticed several layers of my skin weren't there and I saw fresh, pink skin. The next day there was swelling around my elbow and it was blue/black around it. The worst part was I couldn't move my elbow. As days went by, I'm able to move my elbow and the bruise is slowly going away. I know I know I keep hearing this and yes, I will see a doctor tomorrow. I hope you guys will understand why I haven't updated, as well as, announced the winner right away!
