Review: Cettua Silky and Clear Nose Strip & How to use Nose Strip

 Cettua Silky & Clear Nose Strip with Hazel 

(korean brand)

$2.40 ~ £1.50

Comes with a pack of 6. 

How to use:

1. Wash your face and thoroughly wet the nose area.
2. Apply Strip to nose with the smooth side down, pressing down to ensure good contact with skin.
3. Let it dry for 15-20mins.
4. Strip should feel stiff as it dries.
5. After the strip is dried, carefully peel off the strip starting at edges, pulling toward center.

my lovely nose :D
(ew, i know.)

first thing I noticed, it didn't fit on my nose nicely :(
my nose is on the average side btw. :D

so after about 15 mins, I took it off. 
It dried for the first 5 mins still I waited 10 mins more.

As you can see there will be residue after taking it off.
so wash it off with cold water.
(cold water to close your pores)
(still ew, i know.)


It is cheap. But not worth the money. I tried this because of the reviews i've read.
Kind of dissapointted. 
The camera isn't picking it up but it was still there.
I love nose strips but not this one.

'will never buy this again.'
'I do not recommend this to anyone.'

(1 star)
*based on my experience. these are just my opinion.
this may work for you but definitely not on me.

Hope you find this helpful guys. :)

Blog#1: Thoughts about the controversy of T-ara Bullying Hwayoung


(Left to Right - Hwayoung, Hyomin, Qri, Boram, Soyeon, Jiyeon, Eunjung and new member Ahreum)
Pretty Hwayoung (Twitter)
1st of all I was shocked about Hwayoung leaving T-ara.
2nd, the Bullying starts spreading out all over internet; Hwayoung being bullied.

I am not a fan of T-ara but I do LOVE them and their songs.
I've learned to love Hyomin because of Invincible Youth Season 1
I've liked Jiyeon because of Dream High 2
and Eunjung for We Got Married
and to hear this makes me sad, upset and kind of angry.
to be honest, at first, I was so shocked that I didn't believe what I've read about this.
but the Netizens dig up some evidence of this Bullying. and this saddens me.
Hyomin, Jiyeon, Eunjung, Boram and Soyeon were the ones who mistreats Hwayoung. Thankfully Qri is not one of them. From what i've seen Jiyeon is the 'baddest'.

Hwayoung will leave T-ara:

Blogs I've read: T-ara mistreating Hwayoung/Bullied:




These are just some of them; there's more.

I am not a fan. but what about the fans of T-ara? must be so upset.
Im worried about their next comeback/promotions in August.
hoping that this ends and the TRUTH will be revealed soon.

for now.. I am not happy for T-ara.
I will never support who is/are Bully.

GLOSSYBOX: July 2012

Looking for reviews for Glossybox July 2012?
Still waiting? well.. here it is! :)
visit! : www.glossybox.co.uk
these are just my opinion guys. :)

The usual Glossybox Box :)

The usual 'whats inside the box' paper. :)

Anddd here it is :) 


Londoner Urban Fragrance
♥ Thanks to glossybox I have sooo many sample fragrance just like this. wonder if they would really give us the full size next time.
♥  Not really fond of the smell it has a musk-y smell. all I can say. :D
♥ goshh. the full size is expensive! £81.00/100ml

Awapuhi Moisture Mist 100ml
♥ It says you could use it for your hair & skin to give moisture and helps you feel refreshed all day long.
♥ well.. I dont use anything or any brand that I dont know and just slap it on my face. no way. so I just tried it on my hair. 
♥ and I thinkk... it was okay(?) the smell.. well there was no smell or anything. 
♥ the consistency is water/watery like. no gel no oil.
♥ did it soften/smooth the hair? no.
guess it just hydrates. nothing else. guess thats why they call it moisture mist :D
♥ Price: £9.35/300ml

Lip Frosting 15ml
♥ Says that it is a multifunctional cream gloss that you can use it as a gloss for lips for a tint of colour or cheeks for a luminous glow.
♥ as you can see from the picture below I applied it on my hands first just to know what it will look like before applying it anywhere.
first I thought 'oooh pigmented' but after I blended it out fortunately I was like 'nvm' :D
♥ so it is sticky. but not too sticky.
tried it on my lips and didnt like it. didnt gave any moisture instead it just sits there.
♥ although the smeeeell is heavenly! love the smell.
♥ ohh and no way im applying it on my cheeks! 
♥ Price: £10.00/15ml - ooh I got the full size!

can you see, can you see? no?

Huile Prodigieuse (whatever that means. I think its a good thing. :)
♥ Again it says you can apply this dry oil to your face, body and hair. and again, no im not putting this on my face T_T
♥ Its all written in french. (cant read french. sorry :D)
♥ It says that it nourishes, repairs and softens! - what I definitely need for my hair! guess thats good! 
♥ oooh the smell is heavenly aswell!
♥ the consistency is not thick. its a dry oil so I guess thats why its watery like :)
♥ I love using oils for my hair; this is good! :)
♥ Price: £17.50/50ml

Night Renewal Complex 20ml
♥ It claims that it has a rich complex of actives to help smooth and firm the skin whilst you sleep.
♥ This is the second Monu product that I have and both came from Glossybox. 1st one was a Day Cream and I thought it was okay.
♥ I definitely needed to change my moisturizer at night and this is good.
♥ as for consistency, just like the day cream one. it is thick but once you work it on the skin, its vey smooth and easy to apply. It absorbs into the skin very well shown below.
♥ the smell is again just like the other Monu I have. Light smell; good for those who doesnt like strong smell with their products.
♥ I have yet to try this so thats all for now.
♥ Price: £36.95/50ml


There you go!

one more thing. Glossybox is so nice to give a BONUS PRODUCT! yay!
Elizabeth Arden's Visible Skin Balancing line
♥ works to skin looking revitalized and healthy. 
♥ it has cleanser, serum and a balancing lotion SPF15 :D
and also if you bring the 'whats inside the box' paper to any Debenhams Elizabeth Arden counter you recieve a FREE DELUXE SAMPLE! niceee!
better get that tomorrow! :)

Thank you for visiting my Blog!!
Until next time!
