SECRET KEY Snow White Milky Lotion

Hi ladies! It's me again after a while of disappearing somewhere. How's your day? I hope you all had a great week and wish everyone a very happy Valentine's Day! I have been having a bit of a blogging break recently not for any reason, just because I'm not very good at manage my blog but I do try to add a couple of posts when I have free time. I'm so gonna blog about this before I gone for my short getaway, can't wait to meet my fiance today and off for our short trip. YAY!

As you know every women are generally obsessed with bright, glowing, and healthy skin, I'm not an exception though! My review today is on a product that I have just tried this in the past one month. I got interested in trying some brightening products to lighten some dark spots on skin, so I bought the Secret Key Snow White Milky Lotion­ (시크릿 키 스노우 화이트 밀키 로션), the price quite reasonable for me to have a try on it and finally I decided to grabbed it home. This is actually my first time trying out Secret Key product but I'm really excited to try it out! I know, I am a bit late with this post because I was not sure if it would be any good or if I would like it but my skin is so dry that I figured it couldn't hurt. I was pleasantly surprised with the result of the product and have been using it ever since. Well, enough with my babbling let's move on to the review, shall we?

Secret Key wrote in the description of this product that "It will brighten your complexion, provide moisture to keep skin soft and that your skin will look natural and brilliant, making you look more beautiful". Well, that certainly sounds promising doesn't it? Do read below to know how I feel about it!

Here is the ingredient list for the Secret Key Snow White Milky Lotion!
Secret Key Snow White Milky Lotion has niacinamide, which is an amide of vitamin B3 which will help brighten my overall complexion and making my skin look healthier.

- Instant brightening effect / No need to wash off.
- Moisturizing lotion texture for fast penetration.
- Brightening face, elbow, knee, neck, breasts, arm pit and anywhere it is needed.

How to use:
After basic skin care, release appropriate amount on the skin and smooth over it. Pat gently several tiems for better penetration.

Now I'll begin by talking about the packaging!

As you can see, the lotion comes in 120g quantity and is packed in a white plastic squeeze tube type bottle with a flip cap which is good for dispensing the proper amount and the design of the bottle is very simple yet pretty.

You can typically find the manufactured date or the expiration date on the packaging.

Check out how it looks like when they're applied on my hand below.

The texture of the product is thick and creamy. It may look heavy but in fact, it is lightweight and watery that quite easy to absorb into the skin in a few minutes after application. It does leave a mild sticky residue but it is not greasy, and you need to use the tips of your finger to gently pat and spread it to places that you want to make it white.

This is a swatch of the snow white milky lotion on my hand!
As you can see, the product is white and has a scent that smells like baby powder with a hint of floral I must say, but I didn't mind the smell at all though!

Here I am before and after I applied Snow White Milky Lotion!

Can you spot the difference? I have to say when I applying this product for the first time, I'm kinda happy with the result! As you can seen from the before and after photo, my skin was originally kinda yellowish but after applied the Snow White Milky Lotion, my skin become more brighter, clean, smoother and shiny. I also feel that it's also giving me radiant and moisture at the same time. I have never tried a product that would give its effect very quickly without so much effort.

I use this Snow White Milky Lotion when I'm going to mall with my fiance and just having a casual day when I just want a glowing face and bright face. How do I look? If you have dry, normal or oily skin, I recommend you to try SECRET KEY Snow White Milky Lotion which has dewy finish. This lotion did not make me break out, and it's really great for dry and dehydrated skin who prefers non-sticky lotion that can offer deep hydration. Overall, I'm agree that it kinda giver you a brighter skin tone but I disagree about it making you look more beautiful LOL.

What do you think? Do you want to purchase this product? Have you tried the Secret Key Snow White Milky Lotion? Did you notice any results? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below!

That's all for this review. I hope you enjoy this review and it helps you decide whether you want to try it or not. Thank you for reading  and see you in my next post!

TONY MOLY Magic Food Banana Hand Milk

Hello everyone! 새해 복 많이 받으세요 (Happy Chinese New Year 2016 to all those who celebrate)! It's that time of year again for the Koreans, Chinese and anybody else who celebrates the new lunar year. I know I know, you guys probably think I'm such a terribly lazy and pathetic person for not blogging these days, I'm so sorry! Anyway, I'm back with another review and today I will be doing a review on TONY MOLY Magic Food Banana Hand Milk. Are you guys excited? I'm always feel excited whenever comes to skin care because I like to try new things, and this product is super duper cute. Well, enough with my babbling let's move on to the review, shall we? It will be a quite short post since this is only a hand cream. So sit back and enjoy!

The TONY MOLY Magic Food Banana Hand Milk comes in a transparent plastic box. When I first take a look at the product, first thing that come in my mind is how this hand cream looks like a toy. LOL

Product Description:
Banana hand milk that focuses on rich moisturization and supplying nutrition.

Contains 10,185 ppm banana extract.
Water, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (shea) butter, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Cocos Nucifera (coconut) oil, Butylene Glycol, Macadamia Integrifolia seed oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Musa Sapientum (banana) fruit extract, Milk Protein Extract, Urea, Pentylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Tromethamine, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, CI 19140, CI 15985

How to use:
After washing your hands or when your hands feel dry, apply an appropriate amount of crea to your hands and gently massage your hands to enhance absorption.

All informations found on the packaging of Magic Food Banana Hand Milk were written in Korean words.

Looking at these pictures, I can imagine you girls screaming inside your heart. How can you resist such a cute products? The packaging of these products are the cutest hand cream packaging I've seen!

Look at the cute way of designing a hand cream! These adorable packaging designs will draw you to these products even though you don't need them. I wont lie, although this hand cream is quite expensive than other hand cream, but I still bought it because it was so damned cute packaging. LOL

The date on the bottom is the date that it is made, not the expiration date!

The plastic tube is shaped like a banana and the color is a typical banana yellow with a small opening to squeeze and dispense out the hand cream, which makes it easy to use and very suitable for travel use. The squeeze tube allows for a controlled amount of product to come out. 

The tube holds 45 ml of product which is quite little if you used it for daily basis.

Check out how it looks like when they're applied using fingers!
The cream has medium thickness, yet it feels lightweight on skin, creamy but non-tacky, and is white in color.

Hand creams are must haves for everyone, they always wants to have the smooth and soft hands in every way possible, but I am not a hand cream person because I am super lazy person and I don't like the sticky feeling on my hand. But this product has performed beyond my expectations!

It smells heavenly and you need only a tiny bit. It has a sweet banana scent and the scent isn't too overwhelming, and it's very lovely. I highly recommend anyone who likes bananas scents to try this!

The swatch on my hand!
It is very easy to blends and this product absorbs fairly quickly, and once absorbed by your skin, it is not greasy or sticky feeling. It leaves my skin feeling supple, smooth and soft to the touch and moisturized, but he only thing I don't like about TONY MOLY Magic Food Banana Hand Milk is that the moisturizing effects are quite nice at first, but I find my hands get dry again after a few hours, so the moisturizing effects are not long lasting.

Here's my hand only wearing the TONY MOLY Magic Food Banana Hand Milk! 
Tony Moly Banana Hand Milk gives your skin a delicious banana milk scent. Although texture is thick and creamy but it almost feels like you didn't put anything on! The first 15 minutes, I felt like bananas are surrounding me, but the smell permanently disappear after 20-30 minutes.

Overall, I will not purchase this product when I've run out, and I'll probably go with a different hand cream next time! =D
What do you think of this product? Do you want to purchase this product? If there's some product you want me to review, please leave a comment below! I would love to hear your suggestion and feel free to share your thoughts!

Well, anyway that's it! It's almost 10.30 AM in the morning and I need to get some sleep since I didn't sleep well last night! Oh and by the way, I might not be able to post anything for the next 1 week because I have to go out of town, I'm so sorry! I hope you enjoy this blog post and I promise I will blog more so please be patient! See you in the next blog post!
