What's New This Week?

So much to talk about, so little time! 
I recently  stayed more than 2 hours inside the Etude House store and guess what I realized?  It wasn't a good idea when you think you're working but you're actually shopping at the back of your head!  Anyone can relate to that?

So when you check out their website ( and their physical stores, you'll definitely spot what's in and hot as of the moment!

Why does this line reminds me so much of the Wonder Girls?

There are a total of 5 products (or 5 steps) + Mask and I got Steps 3 to 5 and a mask!  Keep in mind that I don't need this product FOR NOW as I don't have obvious pores and I obviously need more anti-ageing products than Pore minimizing!  But who cares?  They are cute, I'm keeping these because I will test this out to my willing victims ( sister-in-law and Mr. AMW!)

Wonder Pore Tightening Essence
 After applying emulsion, dispense a certain amount and spread gently onto face. 

I will actually take this with me on gigs just in case my client is into Korean products.  I love how "handy" this bottle is and how simple yet catchy the color is!

Wonder Pore Clearing Emulsion
This is a pore emulsion that organizes pores with its fresh texture and light finish.

I can imagine this as a wonderful makeup base!  I am seriously itching myself NOT to try this myself but I may actually try this on my t-zone area!  Because I am seriously intrigued with this product!
Etude House Wonder Pore Clearing Emulsion Review

Wonder Pore Balancing Cream
with a formula that evens out the pore’s oil and moisture balance for smooth pores.

This will be perfect for my sister-in-law who's complaining how dry her skin was!  I gave her a couple of moisturizers but she just can't seem to use them because she finds them extremely oily for her skin!  I can't wait for her to try this!

Wonder Pore Black Mask Sheet
An additional on your once a week routine!  I can really see the difference of using facial masks at least once a week!  Don't forget to pick a mask that covers the needs of your skin!

Then obviously, if oiliness is not your issue and you won't something more of the hydrating, brightening and lifting properties, go for Leaders Insolution masks!  They are amazing!  I've tried them and the masks fit like a glove!  And the best part? I don't have any negative skin reactions while using these.

Just when I thought I've already drowned myself with face moisturizers to try!  I am definitely wrong ! Because there's MORE out there!  More that I wished I have more faces (nah, just joking!)  But the Tony Moly Goat Milk Moisture Essence will definitely go through my "testing phase" because I've always been a user of Goat's Milk products, way back during those Beauty Bar days when they still have it!  I'm not sure if they still do?  I forgot the name but I used to buy there!

So Tony Moly made one and so far, I've got nothing but positive reactions on their skin care line, so I"m definitely trying this out! 

Any present users out there, please share to us your experience!

Tony Moly Goat Milk Moisture Essence

And since we're still talking about Tony Moly, whenever you go into any of their branches and ask them about their bestselling skincare product, you'll definitely be recommended this!  I actually got 1 tub for myself during a shopping trip and got another one from the brand!  Am I happy to have 2 ?  Certainly! Remember my post on Scholl Electric Foot File?  Well, I've been using moisturizers on my feet like CRAZY!  So I recently gave this a test, I know this is meant for the body but I tried it on my feet and woke up with extremely smooth heels!  I can't wait to try this on the rest of my body!

Pure Eco Snail Moisture Gel

Now let's talk about what recently landed on my desk, like literally!  I've been a body wash user for quite some time and haven't been back to using soap until this!  Palmolive has always been a "girly" soap, with powder fresh scent and pastel bars, I am quite surprised to see a hardcore black packaging that says Flawless Clean with Charcoal Powder.  Now we all know Charcoal in beauty products are meant to CLEAN, so this soap is quite intriguing because it is hardcore yet feminine at the same time with the powdery scent!  Can't wait to try this out!

And can you guess who their latest endorser is?  *whispers* Angel Locsin!  For more information visit I took a peek and saw it there!

Then, I just want to share if you are on a budget and wants to take care of your feet, the local brand Caronia has always been a dependable brand!  I've tried and used their Revitalizing Soak & Wash , Renewing Scrub and Nourishing Creme and they may not give you IMMEDIATE results but they do the job!  

You may find these at Watson's and drugstores nationwide!  I got mine at Watson's.

and before I end this post, I just want to thank SkinWhite family for sending me a personalized bag!  I love personalized anything and seeing my initials made me smile!  I will definitely use this weekender bag for my hotel stay this weekend!  You may know I'm not really a fan of whitening products but I've used their Soap in particular and I'm happy to announce that it didn't dry out my skin as expected!  The lotion smells amazing but I will be sharing it to my friends instead because I big whitening products goodbye since I turned into a mom!  I may go back trying them when my son is bigger or when he stops being too clingy to mommy AMW! (Which I pray won't happen anytime sooner!)

Whew!  Exciting things ahead right?
I love my discoveries this week!  I hope you share to me some discoveries you wanted me to look into!  So I can help share my thoughts on them too!

Have a wonderful Saturday!  I'm off to a hotel for a family Staycation!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. EH products are still expensive in stores unlike if you buy it online po.. for example yung wonder pore toner 1k+ yung 500 ml. online it's 750 only po.. but of course mas masaya po kasing mag shopping physically.. it makes you want to grab everything that you see! hahaha...

    1. talaga ? I think their pricing is alright since very close sa Korea!

  2. When I was in collegre, I've tried a compact from Etude House which didn't worked well for me. Since then, di na ko nagtry ulit ng ibang products from them. Pat pat lang pala kasi mag-apply nun. Haha. :) This wonder pore line sounds promising lalo na sa naghehello kong pores especially sa nose and around the nose area. :D Thanks for sharing, Miss Nikki!

    1. I know what you mean, my first Etude product was bought online via Ebay and it didn't work for me too! I'm glad now the products works even better on me! Must be the formulation or they changed something.

      If you hav large pores, wonder pore maybe for you!

  3. Hi Nikki, just wondering which should be applied first - the clearing emulsion then the tightening essence? If so, when should the balancing cream be applied? Thanks a lot!

    1. facial cleanser, Toner, essence and emulsion. :)

    2. Thanks, Nikki! There's this new product - the balancing cream - would you know where in the equation would it fit? I'm thinking, emulsion for day use then the cream at night? Thanks again!


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
