or maybe adding some to your daily moisturiser if you want a lighter texture.

After a little bit help on the make-up coverage ladies. My problem, if I'm warm or nervous, my face tends to resemble the Tony Moly apple! I've tried various concealers (including the coloured ones) but my face then just seems to erupt in spots so usually I wear the bare minimum of make-up products and attempt a "natural" look.

 

However, I'm now at the age where its not cutting it for work. I've just bought the iope air cushion and am using the Tony Moly panda that was in one of the recent boxes but my face now looks "shiny". Can anyone suggest a very simple and quick solution (the less steps the better in the morning as I have to get daughter ready for nursery - main priority) then drive 50 miles to the office?

 

Not expecting miracles but something to hide the redness in my cheeks but without 15 layers and won't bring me out in spots...

 

Would be much appreciated...

 

(after being off work for 4 months, I'm now looking after me. Had my hair done today with over 6" chopped off the ends and intend to spend some "me" time every week)

You may want to try all the whitening creams and emulsions that we get quite often in some of the boxes. I really like Secret Key Snow White Cream. It evens out and brightens the skintone and makes it visibly whiter but it also feels nice as a treatment. It's moisturizing and gives some glow but it doesn't break me out and even mattifies a bit (and I have oily skin).

I've ordered the mint coloured iope cushion (tester size) from ebay but will have at look at the Snow White cream. Thing is, being Scottish I have a very pale white complexion most of the year anyway (hence when I do go red, its very noticeable!). So don't want to look like a morgue victim when I'm not red - if that makes sense! Perhaps a paper bag might be cheaper lol!!

I get red cheeks and nose which stand out a lot with my pale skin. Lioele BB cream actually does a REALLY good job at covering it and evening out the color. I always go over it with rimmel stay matte powder because I have oily skin and most korean products (like the bb cream I use) will give you a dewy/shiny finish. I haven't experimented much yet as far as skincare goes, korean products don't focus much on redness. Whitening products I don't know much about, sounds very hit or miss. I am dying to try some though!

 

ETA: A lot of people like the etude house mint baby choux. It's a green makeup base for redness. I have been meaning to get samples, but haven't gotten around to it. Might be worth trying.

Thanks for all the suggestions - I'll give them a go. Unfortunately, its something I've inherited from my Mum (cheers for that). She wears Boots no. 7 green corrector but that's far too heavy for my face and results in instant face eruption even when I combine with some moisturiser.

I hope they don't switch to UPS, at least not for Canadian packages (ours don't come DHL, so maybe it wouldn't make a difference). That would probably be the end of memebox for me if they came UPS.

I have pale skin and redness all on my cheeks and around my nose. I use a whitening cream and it really doesn't have the intense payoff that the photos would have you think. The one I use right now is the Nella Fantasia Oneday Whitener that I received in a Global box awhile ago. It comes out VERY thin and is easily blended. I'd say if you layered the stuff on 3-4 times you might get a pasty-white complexion, however I apply it once over my face and all it really does is brighten up the skin tone, and dull down the redness. After that I apply a light creamy concealer and blend it out and/or I will use a BB cream or foundation with a light coverage and as matte of a finish as possible. It's important to set your face makeup too in order to keep it looking good all day, so I use a translucent powder. Powders do settle into lines and tend to make you look older IF you don't set them as well. I use a makeup setting spray, but I've also used a facial mist of any kind. You just want to SLIGHTLY mist your face after apply powder, and then tap it dry (very lightly) with your hand. That will remove any powdery look from your face, but also keep your makeup in place for a long time. :)

The lioele beyond the solution (if thats the one youre using) is my HG bb cream! I love it to death.. I use it with the baby choux base in mint under and it works wonders for covering up some of my redness. Have very red cheeks myself. I'm on my 4th tube of it already!

Just a heads up, I received 2 of those $10 off $50 coupons, and they were identical. So it could just be that everyone is getting the same one repeatedly.

 

Here's hoping we can still use it on Friday. I was thrilled to be able to use it to grab two Neogen!  :D

 

@@Saffyra Thank you, I really couldn't put my finger on what the scent was. I'll definitely be giving it a chance now, you ladies have convinced me.

Thanks again ladies for all the suggestions. I'll give the Etude House mint air cushion a go first and if I need a bit more coverage, I'll try the CHoux one as I've got about 3 dollars worth of points for the etude house website from other orders so that will go towards the shipping now that promotion has passed. I've found the lIoele BB cream as well so will give that a go if the Iope cushion is just too light but at least I now have a few things to try and find the ideal combo so much appreciated :)

I had actually ordered an extra one for my Mum as I thought it was a cute box and good intro but think I might keep it for myself (well, she's getting an Etude House castle hand cream from my daughter anyway lol!). I actually really like the box considering the negative comments and am glad I ordered it. :)

Honestly, I thought it had a good balance of skincare/makeup/cutiepiestuff while still maintaining a certain level of quality. The whole thing was fun, right down to the packaging.

Guess I'm not just a lone crazy for liking this. I'd order a second if I could justify it ... There are a few more on my wish list to buy before I can start doing repeats. I totally support you having two though! : )

I think my $10 coupon says it expires on th 16th. I want to use it on Friday's boxes if there is a value set that I want.

 

Now I want that Neogen product too. It looks very interesting

@@LoveSkinCare (Enabler alert!) I think everyone here has been forced to listen to my love of Neogen, but their peeling serum and gauze kits are by far their most well known item, and they are REALLY expensive. This gold and caviar version is even more expensive than the lemon and green tea ones (which are usually sold out on KoreaDepart). $27 is a great deal with even without free shipping, but the shipping charges for that item tend to be really high since the serum is like 250ml.

 

But yeah....Great deal. I Don't expect to ever see it again. And 2 for basically $20 each? How can I resist.  :blush:

 

The 16th? Oh, perfect! So we will get a chance to use it on Friday, I didn't even think to check for an expiration. Thank you!!! Here's hoping for some great value sets on Friday.  :D

yes, those coupons are only good for one time use and they are the same.  I've noticed that as I did a few purchases one week and all of my coupons were exactly the same and I could only use it once.

Can other people use the same code? Or is it a one time use code only?

I do not know - I bet it works the same way the affiliate codes work.  Doesn't matter what the code number is, if you've used one already, you've used them all.

@@yunii I sent you the code I have, I assume it will work if you haven't used one yet.

 

@@biancardi Thanks, that is a shame we can only use it once. ...Per account.

 

@@TooMuchElectric I love peeling pads and those peeling treatments have done wonders for my skin, without irritating the heck out of it and damaging it like more professional treatments. I really just disregard the "luxury" ingredients in Korean skincare, whether it's caviar, gold, black pearl, or whatnot. I have heard they all work miracles on the skin, but I just don't believe all the hype. 

 

However, I can honestly say my excitement over the product has nothing to do with the gold or caviar extracts. :)

Excellent job with the sale, you picked a great products that go really well together. Makes me wish they did a "buy the entire routine!" set.

Aww thank you so much!! I'm still trying to work out a few bugs with the sale, but other than that it went pretty smoothly! :D <3

 

Now I need a nap and a cup of coffee! ;)

    • Yet whilst more and more land-based casinos are being closed down, online casinos are thriving. The advantages of playing casino games online are numerous. The bonuses at casinobonusesfinder.com are just an example. If you have only ever played in a brick and mortar casino, the advantages of playing online will soon become very clear to you. The first thing is the bonuses obviously. I feel that you have way more options online.
