Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam Review

Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam 1

I do wonder, is it too taboo to talk about TP on my makeup blog? You know, toilet paper.

Oh Muse why are you bringing up such an intimate thing like toilet paper?

Well…it took me a very long time but I finally figured out what Etude House Eye and Lip Remover smells like. It smells like toilet paper! Um ok step back for a second and let me explain it smells like unused toilet paper, don’t want anyone getting the wrong idea here. You know I think Charmin is the TP that has that cloying powdery floral cheap scent going on…am I making sense?

I absolutely loved the Etude House Eye and Lip Remover but the scent totally murdered me. It was cheap, it was powdery, and it had a whole lot of floral going on. No likey. It took ages to finally pinpoint the scent and finally a light bulb went off and I realized, “hey this smells like toilet paper!”

Oh..I got long winded there for a second. I’m telling you this because it’s generally made me scared to try skin care bits and bobs from Etude House as a few items sport this same scent.

I took the plunge and gave in to purchase Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam and yes you guessed it, it smells like toilet paper.

Le sigh!

Wants ‘Em: Tony Moly Tomatox Brightening Mask And Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream

Tony Moly Masks

The Muse was busy having a little brood this morning about the new Tony Moly Skin Peek Masks.

Ok, actually, I admit, I was searching on youTube for Kim Hyung Joong videos and watching his Tony Moly commercials. What? They are SO much classier than Lee Min Ho Etude House commercials.

Scary cat on the shoulder!

Freaking love this spoof! (keep your volume turned down)

And than we have Hyung Joong looking all kinds of hot in the Tony Moly ads.

See? Corny but still Hyung Joong trumps that pink leisure suit any day of the week!

Wait..what was I talking about anyway?

Oh yes! The new Tony Moly Skin Peel Masks!

Check ‘em!

Beauty Battle: The Skin Food Wash Off Masks Versus Lush Skincare Masks

beauty battle

Let me tell you a story…..hopefully you like these long stories I get into. Ok, so I’m a big Lush skin care fan but lately I’ve been cheating with Korean brand, the Skin Food. This stuff is really great for my skin and I’ve been using it’s super power human strength to make my skin glow.

One thing I’ve never been too big a fan with when it comes to Lush is their face masks. I love some of the interesting promises that the masks make but I’ve never actually experienced the benefits for myself after using them. They are nice to have items but I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing incredible, awe aspiring results from ‘em!

I discovered The Skin Food Face Masks and I swear I can’t live without this good stuff! Now we’re talking results!

I’ve pitted The Skin Food Wash Off Masks against Lush Face Masks in a Beauty Battle. It’s easy enough to see who’ll win this battle but take the jump to find out for yourself!
