Etude House Missing U Lip Balm Review

Etude House Missing U Lip Balm 8

I have a thing for cute beauty products, obviously right? Etude House introduced a range of hand creams and lip balms several months ago in a baby animal theme which instantly had me at that “awww OMG so cute!” stage.

I’m such a wimp for kawaii makeup.

There are four animals featured on the packaging in the form of a baby penguin, seal, panda, and dolphin. After hauling all four of them I went through the secondary stage, this is the stage after the “awww OMG so cute!” stage as reality sinks in and I sit and wonder why I need four tins of lip balm….and I remember oh yeah, because there cute.

It’s a sickness people.

In the end I ended up keeping two and gifting the others away! See? Sometimes I’m smart.

Here’s my thoughts!

Holika Holika Blackhead Sponge Magic Patch Review

Holika Holika Blackhead Sponge Magic Patch 1

I don’t get blackheads anywhere on my face but the tip and sides of my nose are their playground. Nose strips help but I have two pesky ones that make a permanent home on the tip of my nose. Those suckers are so deeply embedded I need a pick and a shovel to dig ‘em out!

Dude, I have tried any and all products in the Asian market to remove them. I’ve come to the conclusion that Asia is more obsessed with nose blackheads than we are because they have all sorts of crazy ass stuff to remove ‘em! My favorite? The Black Head Off Stick which is shaped like a chapstick and you literally sit and rub it on your nose like a balm, yeah, I totally tried that shiz and it convinced myself it worked (CLICK!).

Holika Holika Blackhead Sponge Magic Patch is a complete gimmick so I decided, “hey, a new blackhead gimmick, let me try it!”

Does it work?
