[JOLSE] JUICYFUL Vitalizer Tone-Up Cream 100ml Review


You can get this cream on Jolse's website, clicking here

I'm pretty pale so I never thought about getting a whitening cream, but after using this product for a couple weeks I really see how it helped me. This is a moisturizer by the Korean brand Juicyful. I only trust k-brands when it comes to my skincare routine, so I was excited to try something new. 

First the positive things. As I am very pale my biggest concern is redness, especially around my cheeks and I definitely saw that the cream helped with reducing and controlling that area quite a lot.
I did breakout on the first day using the cream, but for the rest of the two weeks nothing else appeared. And the cream did help to reduce the redness of the scarring area.
Because the cream is super opaque and literally white you need to blend it sooo(...) well, but if you're pale and don't like full coverage, it kinda covers your imperfections and acts as a thin layer of foundation. It was perfect because I usually just like to wear concealer.

I was disappointed with one big thing though. It says on the package "Intense Moisturizer" but didn't act like one for me. I have dry skin, and the area around my forehead and nose are the worst compared to the rest of my face so I need a really good moisturizer, but I didn't see much differentce when I was only using this product. If you want the whitening effect and the moisturizing effect you need to use this with an essence or serum to reforce your driest areas.

Overall • I think is great for fair skin and you want to even out the skin tone • I love the packaging and the squeezing tube as it's more higienic • I wouldn't recommend it for people with dry skin, only if you follow it with something else • Great if you don't like to wear foundation as you kinda get some coverage.

Thank you Jolse for giving me the opportunity to review this product. I actually order a lot of my korean beauty from there as they have free shipping and never got a problem with them, so I definitely recommend!

CHECKED

Top* - Zaful // Trousers - Bershka // Shoes - Lidl // Sunnies* - Rosegal

I've been obsessed with this top since I received it from Zaful, I love the pattern and the details both on the sleeves and the back. It also looks fantastic with these yellow glasses from Rosegal. You can look at more pilot sunglasses on their website. I love this look as it looks very retro I think!

Use the code "IGPT2017" to get $5 OFF on Zaful!

AS IF IT’S YOUR LAST

T-Shirt* - Romwe // Trousers - Bershka // Necklace* - Zaful // Shoes - Lidl

I made myself very busy this summer that I didn't even had time to post these pictures that are over a month old. Took these in the same day I dyed my hair this orange-brown color, which I'm obsessed and might keep it for a while. The t-shirt is from Romwe and I love the lace details, it makes it so interesting. Black trousers all year long, and my trusty "birkenstocks". Hope you like it

[PHOTO DIARY] MY TRIP TO FLORENCE

JUNE 22


I recently went to Florence in Italy where I stayed for 6 days, 2 of which were spent on the planeand one was spent in Rome. I took a lot of pictures so I decided to share some with you to show what I did and what I ate, pretty much.

JUNE 23

Santa Maria del Fiore - "The Duomo"

 My little outfit of the day. The dress is from Forever 21.

For lunch we ate at a small place called "Buongustai". I shared with my cousin so we had ravioli and tagliatelle for 6€ each! So delicious, I'm still craving it...

The beautiful sunset in the "piazzale michelangelo." #nofilterneeded

 We ended the day with pizza from "Gusta Pizza", does not look good but it tastes delicious, best pizza I ever had! 

 JUNE 24

 Morning spent at the "Galleria degli Uffizi". I got a postcard of this last painting. Iconic.

Lunch (and dinner) was at this famous place called "All'Antico Vinaio." Huge freaking sandwiches for only 5€. I had the vegetarian one which they put in everything except for the meat.

Randomly parade that we happened to see. Really cool outfits.

At night there were some fireworks, which was related to the parade and some kind of game that is part of a tradition in Florence.

JUNE 26

When we arrived from Rome we had a delicious gelato past midnight.


We went to "Trattoria Zà Zà" for lunch and I tried the "gnocchi" which is pretty much potatoes and my cousin ordered a margarita which I also tried and it was both delicious.


Last meal in Italy was, of course, pizza from a place called Fo'Caccia la Notte.

I really fell in love with Florence. From the food to the beautiful culture, everything amazed me.
