Bioderma Sensibio H2O (Make up remover) -~$20 CDN
This make up remover is by far the best face make up remover I've encountered! This is better than all of those make up remover wipes that I've used. The formula is very gentle on the skin and all you need is a squirt of this onto a cotton pad and you're good to go! This is not only good for make up, it's also great for removing dirt and oil off your skin without stripping all of your natural oil off. I've used a few face wipes that make my skin super dry after using it but Bioderma does the job and does it well!
This in my opinion isn't as good for hard to take off makeup like waterproof mascara. I still stand by my Lancome Bi-Facil Eye makeup remover!
The product can be purchased in Canada, I've only see the 250ml version, and priced steeply at around $20 CDN at Shoppers Drug Mart. If anyone knows where to get this in Canada for cheaper please let me know! I believe this product isn't available in the states but please leave a comment below if they are sold in the states :)
Makeup Forever HD Foundation and Primer ~$30-$40 each
If you have dry skin then this is the best product that I've tried so far. My skin is super dry to a point where it peels... like fish scale even...
The products work well together. I haven't tried using the foundation with another primer but I'm assuming it would work if your primer is silicone based. Usually this can be identified in makeup products with the ingredient "Cyclopentasiloxane". I'm using the shade 120 which is great for asian skin tones. As for the primer I'm using the shade "pink" which gives my face a slight glow to it to make it more "healthy" looking. These shades were recommended by a Sephora staff :) Over the seasons, my skin color changes.... do you ever find it annoying to match shades almost every 4-6 months?
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear ~$4 CDN
This is yes, a clear mascara but I don't use it for my eyelashes, I use it for my eyebrows. Typically, people use brow pencils and I personally hate brow pencils mainly because it looks too defined and too fake so all I really do is apply a brown eye shadow with an angled brush and fill them in. After that I brush my clear mascara to lock it in and also to keep the shape. This I found to be the best way to fix up your eye brows and still having it look natural :) For it being only $4, you really can't go wrong and one tube will probably last you for a year or more.
Japanese Rabbit Keychain: Help please!
Recently, I bought this little Rabbit Keychain kit from Daiso ($2 Japanese store) and for the longest time I have no idea what step 1 is. What do I do with the the shred of cotton and that pin like thing?! If anyone can read the instructions or have made this before, PLEASE let me know how to get this started. I've looked at the picture... and much like Ikea instructions... it's not always easy to interpret...
