My favorites for the 2nd half of the year plus the products I’ve used up for the whole year!
I couldn’t believe we’re already in the 2nd half of December. The year is almost ending and it’s time for me to list down the things I loved for the 2nd half of the year.
Makeup, Skincare & Fragrance
• Etude House B.B Deep Cleansing Foam
I just love how this cleansing foam gets to clean up all the makeup residue, keeping my face squeaky clean.
• Etude House AC Clean Up Cleansing Water
One thing why I love this cleansing product is because even when I’m too lazy to do a double cleanse, this is able to clean without leaving any trace of makeup and dirt on my face, plus it’s perfect for those with sensitive skin.
• Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water
This is a fan favorite and I don’t wonder why as this keeps my skin hydrated during those very warm and even during the very cold weather.
• COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Kit (not in the photo)
This is what I bring during my travels since it already has 3 products in 1 and it’s not a hassle to bring. You can keep your skin clean and moisturized when you’re away from home with just this 1 product.
• Mizon Snail Repair Blemish Balm
The miracles of snail in a blemish balm is just enough for you to love this. Also, I used this again since the shade perfectly fits my skin tone now.
• Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer
This drugstore moisturizer is my go-to moisturizer even when I’m having really bad break outs and allergic reactions.
• Etude House Easy Brow Pencil
I’ve been using this brow pencil for several years now and it just never fails me.
• Etude House Big Cover Concealer
This has really great coverage and lasting power without needing any touch ups up to 12 hours!
• Victoria’s Secret Aqua Kiss Lace Fragrance Mist
I love how this scent don’t irritate the nose, even my sister who has a really sensitive nose likes it.
Clothes & Accessories
• Denim Jacket
This is a steal I got from a thrift shop which looks similar to my Guess denim jacket. I’ve been using this during rainy days and it can even put an edge to any outfit.
• Blue Sweet Storm One Shoulder Dress
The one shoulder trend made a comeback this year so I gave it a try and apparently, this piece made me love it.
• Jansport Backpack
I’ve been using this bag during all my short travels and it makes my travel a lot easier.
• Aldo Hand Bag
This has been my go-to bag during special occasions and I just love the color too.
• MetroSunnies Pink Glasses
One big change this year was discovering that I have left astigmatism and things are a blur with my right eye but thanks to this girl, wearing glasses isn’t a bother as it is very light to wear plus it looks really cute.
• Calbee Honey Butter Potato Chips
This is a Korean inspired snack that I’ve been munching on since I discovered it 4 months ago. It isn’t salty like any other potato chips but instead, it is sweet.
• The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Coffee Ready 3 in 1 Hazelnut mix
I started drinking coffee again this year and this would definitely be my favorite instant coffee mix as it is sweet like hazelnut but gives the right kick to keep me awake the whole day even after doing an all-nighter.
• Matcha Au Lait mix
If you’ve been following my café series, then you know how much I love my matcha. To satisfy my matcha cravings, I asked a cousin of mine who is based in Japan to get me a lot of matcha ready mixes whenever she goes back home. One cup instantly lifts my mood up.
I haven’t been very experimental with the beauty products I used this year, both makeup and skincare, since I wanted my skin to heal first. I’ve been constantly using those products that I thought were helping my skin get better. Here are my product empties for the year. These aren’t complete since I may have used more than one bottle of each product.
Be pretty, be happy, be you! H~
