Rina-chan's Thoughts On: Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam

Finally! Got my Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam. This one's in Milk Tea. I just love milk tea!

Moisturizing and smoothing formula with Milk Tea extract
Aww... All in Korean. I don't understand a thing, heehee...
sealed for protection
the product


Price: Php148 / 120mL - purchased at Etude House SM Megamall




I like... 
     ...its cleansing power! Leaves my skin feeling soft and clean, not dry.
     ...the scent. Although it reminds me more of lotions and creams rather than milk tea. Ehehehe...
     ...that it foams well, even with just a pea-size amount. I like pampering my face with the soft foam.
     ...the price and quantity of product. C'mon! 120mL for Php148? It will take me months to finish a tube!



I don't like...
     ...that it's almost always out of stock...



Either way, I'll most likely repurchase. That is, when I finish this tube which I doubt will be soon!

Ja ne!

J-Rock Sunday: Split by Suneohair


I came across this beautiful song while watching Honey & Clover II, as its ending theme. This is also the second track on the 2007 album Skirt by Suneohair.

Sometimes, I wonder how songs that have upbeat music and fast tempo could have sad and melancholic lyrics. Like this one... Tonikaku, I still love it!

As for the music, I like the bass part. Too bad I can't find any tabs for this...

Romaji:
Arifureteiru kimochi nante sa
Nanimo iwazu ni isso
Kiete shimaeba raku ni nareru no ni

Mitsume atteta kimi no hitomi ni
Utsuru jibun ga yureteru
Toboketa you ni kuchi wo aketa mama

Sorezore no michi wo yuku
Sono wakaremichi
Mou nidoto au koto no nai
Deai wa kanashi sugiru

Tarinai kimochi wo mochiyotte
Atatameta saki kara hieteitte
Sonna hazunaitte shinjiteru
Ittai itsumade onaji kotoba wo
Kakae kondenda kakae kondenda

Mitsume tsuzukeru kimi no hitomi ni
Utsuru keshiki ga kawatta
Boku no shiranai atarashii HIKARI

Sorezore ni michi wo yuku
Ima wakaremichi
Mou nidoto furikaeranai
Kimochi ga hashiri sugiru

Kiesou na yoru ni dakiatte
Hiekitta karada de motsuretatte
Nanika tarinaitte kanjiteru
Ittai itsu kara uso mo tameiki mo
Kakae kondanda sasae kirenai hodo

Tarinai kimochi wo mochiyotte
Atatameta saki kara hieteitte
Konna hazunaitte shinjiteru
Ittai itsumade onaji kotoba wo
Kakae kondenda kakae kondenda


Translation:
If these dull emotions could just
Disappear sooner without a word
It would have been easier

When I gazed at you
I saw myself trembling in your eyes
I opened my mouth as though I had a blank expression

We went on our separate paths
At that crossroad
It pains me so much that
We may never meet again

Gathering emotions which are lacking
Things that were warmed just a while ago have grown cold
I couldn’t believe something like that
Just how long am I going to hold on to the same words?
How long am I going to hold on…

When I continue to gaze at you
The seasons changed in your eyes
My new light which I’ve not known before

We will walk our separate paths
Now, at that crossroad
I can never look back again
My feelings are too overwhelming

You embrace me in the night that is about to disappear
Entangling me with your body which has grown cold
I feel that something is lacking
Just how long have I been holding on to
Lies and sighs to the point of falling apart?

Gathering emotions which are lacking
Things that were warmed just a while ago have grown cold
I couldn’t believe something like this
Just how long am I going to hold on to the same words?
How long am I going to hold on…

It's a Bear-y Lovely Day! ~






And although I can't say the same for the most of my time at work, today's 'theme' of sorts made it more bear-able... Meheheheheh!


What I wore for work today. "Hugs for Life" panda shirt from American Blvd.

And...

Hmm... Wonder what's inside the paper bag?

Love the funky and colorful design!


Tadah! Super-kawaii items I purchased from Gift Factory at Robinsons Galleria!

Waaiii! Watashi wa Rilakkuma to Korilakkuma ga daisuki desu!

Korilakkuma...

...happily hanging on my, what else? Rilakkuma bag!


Aww... Totemo kawaii desshou?





Have a bear-y good night! Ja ne!

Rina-chan's Thoughts On: Etude House Pink Tonic Lip Glass

It's a tint! It's a gloss! It's Pink Tonic Lip Glass! (LOLZ! Please forgive that non-sense...)


Nowadays, I prefer to use glosses than lipsticks because they make my lips look and feel more moisturized and youthful. And this product from Etude House does just exactly that!

Pink Tonic #01 Rosy Pink


doe-foot applicator


on my lips

arm swatch

 with Color Me Nude underneath

color stays even after wiping my lips!



Price: Php328 / 4.5g - at Etude House SM Megamall


I like...
     ...the pink color of course! And the nice glossy finish it gives!
     ...that it never dries out my lips!
     ...its decent staying power. Color stays put and survives light eating and drinking. (Survive??? What a term. LOLZ!)
     ...that the quality and the quantity of the product is worth the price.


I don't like...
     ...nothing!


To sum it up, I love this lip gloss to bits! And I'll definitely repurchase! Demo, I'm also considering trying other EH glosses and tints. Any suggestions?
