So here's my review for the product with the longest name everrrr: the Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel. This was also part of my Sasa haul from last month (yes, still reviewing stuff from that haul -_-). I got this from Sasa for $21.10.
Sasa describes this product as a
"hypo-allergenic peeling gel that gently polishes skin for a smooth complexion with mannan and strengthens the skin barrier with the fermented yogurt.Did you read all that? ...Cause I sure as hell didn't HAHA
Natural Konjac (Mannan) beads gently exfoliate dead skin cells and impurities with short time of massage.
Sogurty, a specialized fermented yogurt, has anti-inflammatory effects to soothe skin from skin troubles.
Multi berry complex (various berry extracts from raspberries, blueberries, wolfberries, cranberries, and strawberries) delivers abundant nutrition and antioxidants to eliminate harmful free radicals, leaving skin more translucent and bright."
Basically it's a gentle exfoliating gel. It has very fine micro-beads. I could barely feel it exfoliating my skin.
|It does look like yogurt though...|
So...what did I think? The perfect word would be "Ehh" followed with a shrug. I don't hate it but I don't feel like it really did anything to my skin. I prefer my exfoliating products to do just that, exfoliate the hell out of my skin. I want it to get rid of all my dead stuff and make my skin shiny and new. This Laneige Peeling Gel was too gentle for me and I don't feel it really did any "peeling."
My skin didn't really feel all that soft and refreshed after. I'll still use it since it was kind of expensive and since it smells good ^.^ It'll be good to use in between my mega-exfoliating days. I like to exfoliate really really well like 2-3 days a wk, depending on the condition of my skin & whether I remember to or not XD
If you're looking for a super gentle peeling gel or exfoliator, I'd give this a try.
But for me, I'll stick to my St. Ives Apricot Scrub to do all my thorough exfoliating. This stuff works so well! Plus it's so damn cheap, around $3-$4 US, and can be easily found at Target, etc.

Now...for random pictures I took last week ^^
I tried Five Guys Burgers and Fries for the first time last week. I was wondering if I'd like it better than In-n-Out, which is an amaaazing burger place in California. I didn't. In-n-Out won by far ^o^ I know that most people prefer one or the other. And it makes sense. The two places are pretty different.
This is a crappy picture, but I was starving. The toppings are all free so...I just loaded a bunch of crap on there. Mushrooms, grilled onions, mayo...ok it wasn't that much stuff. The quality was good, but it was just "Ehh" (wow...that's like my reaction to a lot of things in this post >.<) It was just pretty....average. Like something a friend would be able to make me at a barbeque.
My friend recently got an ice cream maker so I went over to eat (that's all I ever seem to do...) hahahaha!! She made mango ice cream but used coconut milk instead of regular heavy cream. OMG it was soooo good! The coconut milk made a huge difference. It was so fragrant. Yum yum yum!
The bottom layer was strawberry frozen yogurt she made with Greek yogurt. Everything was made fresh with real fruit.
I'm gonna have to limit my visits to her place from now on or I'll get fat! >o<
ANDDDD...just when I thought I was almost done with my mask reviews, my aunt pays me a visit from Taiwan and gave me this...
Ahhh I ♥ her!! I told her only a couple boxes would be enough since these are so heavy to transport, but of course she wouldn't listen. And she managed to find me a box of the MBD Earl Grey Tea Masks!!!! The lovely Blair blogged about it and made me obsess over them. I LOVE THEM!! ^o^
Side note: Blair's also doing this great Thank You Giveaway so everyone go join!!! You have till July 30th, 2011, 11:59 MST.
So happy my aunt also got me more mascaras. I was on my last Fairy Drops mascara & starting to freak out lol!
Expect mask reviews to go on...forever. I don't think I'll ever finish SMH
To those in the US, have a Happy July 4th and enjoy the long weekend!!!!
And...while talking to Miss Queenie and another friend from Canada on Twitter yesterday, I realized Canada Day is July 1st. HAHAHA Leave it to me to be super American and completely disregard other countries' holidays. Sorry sorry!!!
Hope those in Canada have a great Canada Day!!!!
Oh, and I haven't posted anything KPop related in too long (for me at least XD) so here's 2NE1's sick ass new videoooo!
