samples review : etude house baking powder crunch pore scrub & holika holika sleeping pack

i looove trying samples. specially when the product is interesting and the packaging is cute. now i have 2 cute samples, which is etude house crunch pore scrub and holika holika sleeping pack. both comes with similah cute packaging.enough to use 2 times or 3 times if you only apply a little and trying to use it as many time as possible.

etude house baking powder crunch pore scrub
it is a scrub version from etude house baking powder line. i tried the facial wash one and i liked it. if that facial wash can be used everyday, this one is only for 1-2 times a week. if you buy the full size, it will come in a box contain 24x7gr cute triangle like this :

my review:
i know the direction said one puch per application, but when i squeezed out the product, i thought half or even 1/3 is enough, so i didn't use all the product.. the texture:

the texture is creamy, with soft scrub particle, gentle enough for my skin. and it smells just like the real baking powder to bake! well, with a little hint of fragrance. but not as good smell as the facial wash.after scrubbing, i felt my face soo soft and firm! i like it!
so overall, i like it and i think it is another good stuff from etude house.

holika holika honey sleeping pack
i am a little bit confuse with this one. why? because holika holika honey sleeping pack comes with 3 varians; blueberry, acerola, canola. i don't know which one i got because there is no information about that. it's all in korean. so i have no idea which one is this.
anyway, if you buy the full size bottle you will get this cute jar :

my review :
it smells soooo nice ad lovely.. smells like honey with a hint of other nice fragrance, but i don't know what it is, and even after i smell the product i don't know which variant it is. but absolutely not acerola because from i saw from the review on the net acerola is a light red colour. the one i have is brown-yellowish honey colour.
the texture :

the texture is light-creamy gel, it absorbs faster than etude house sleeping pack, and after awhile i could feel my face sooo nicely moisturised. like, like, like!
i will check the price on the net if the price is good i might buy this one for my next sleeping pack!

kulitku normal-combi, sedikit berminyak with pores (komedo2 rese) di hidung dan dagu. sebetulnya ga masalah sih krn ini kan sleeping pack, klo pun muka jadi berminyak kan dipakenya pas tidur bukan keluar rumah.. hehe :)

Tikka said...

iya ni paling benci pori2 yang bisa bikin komedo >.< apalagi kalau yang ada item2 huwaa, bingung cara ilanginnya >.<

Kalau yang baking powder bisa untuk bersihin komedo item ga sis??

galleryibu said...

yang baking powder, dibilang untuk bersihin komedo item, bersihin dalam hal apa nih? mengangkat tuntas komedo? ya ngga lah ya,,,(oh i wish) tapi bantu meminimalisasi pori2 aja, mungkin untuk maksimalnya habis pake etude baking powder trus pake nose pack kaya yang biore gitu kali ya..
