100 Days of Makeup – Day 3 (Skincare only: QYOQYO, Farmacy, Etude House, Eclado)

Alongside my participation in the #100DaysofMakeup comes another challenge – 100 days of blogging. My goal for this project is to be able to think outside-the-box in terms of what an “everyday” look can be, as well as pump out tons of reviews for you guys. Let’s do this!

It’s Day 3 and I’m not wearing makeup. Still, I have 4 skincare products to review.

Skincare is everything is creating a flawless base for your additional makeup, so it’s still useful to discuss (obvi!)

 

DAY 3

I had no time to get ready, so I opted for products that would get the job done so I could run out the door. Also, I was excited to try the Eclado Sun Cream; I’ve heard so many lovely things about it! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it won a blind test on Get It Beauty. 

No selfie for today – let’s get straight into the reviews!

 

Cleanser – FARMACY Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm

I was putting a lot on this because I half-assed my cleansing the night before (just some micellar water and sleep. DON’T JUDGE ME PLEASE). Still, it had a nice, soft consistency and got the job done.

I still use the classic Banila Co. Clean It Zero, but this one may be better for me. I immediately noticed the lack of scent, which is something I absolutely deplore in the Banila Co. version. You know when a smell is so strong, you can taste it? That’s Clean It Zero for me. While it’s still my holy grail balm because it literally cleans off everything, I may have to put Farmacy’s to the test on a heavier makeup.

 

TONER/ESSENCE/CREAM (WOAH!) – QYOQYO TANGERINE BRIGHT + MOIST ALL IN-1 CREAM

This brand is so interesting to me! I discovered it at KCON this year and was instantly intrigued. I really never ventured into tangerine as skincare, but considering I use snail, bee venom, and everything else under the sun, tangerine can’t be too crazy to give a shot. Besides, I’ve yet to find a skincare line from KCON that didn’t impress me – I first found Moksha last year and they’ve come to be my one of my favorite brands for sheet masks.

This, essentially, is an all-in-one product. I’ve seen tons of these on the market – in fact, my uber-picky, multi-step-regimen dad is obsessed with Skinfood’s Beer One Shot for Men. After getting samples of this (I bought the line’s toner), I figured they’d be great for moments where I don’t wanna lug around product, or woke up at noon on accident… anyone else? No? ONTO THE REVIEW.

I enjoyed this a lot! I wasn’t expecting to at all just because I like to layer my hydration rather than slab one thing on. I have to take LA’s 100-degree, humid-ass weather into consideration, but I didn’t feel any dry patches peek through and only had to mist once after being in an air-conditioned room all day. A lot of different factors to consider, but it worked, so I’m happy.

I wasn’t a terribly huge fan of the toner’s ingredients, which left me curious about the all-in-one. There isn’t much information on this brand other than eBay, which gives me the idea that this is a private-labelled company. Interesting!

Anyway, for those who are curious, the ingredients are as follows:

First ingredient is water. Second ingredient is glycerin.

Regardless, I’ll save the lil’ packets for whenever I’m extremely lazy. And it smells yummy.

 

SPF: ECLADO Oil Free Sun Cream SPF40 PA+++

Oooooooh, this is SOOOOOO NIIIIIIIIIICCCCEEEE! Aside from its obvious sun protection, it gives such a pretty glow to the skin & brightened my tired complexion really nicely.

Hyaluronic Acid made this really moisturizing, which also could’ve accounted for my all-day hydration. It’s no Biore Watery Essence, but it’s a lovely product I can get behind when I’m feeling sallow or dull.

 

Mist: ETUDE HOUSE Coconut Hydrating Serum Mist

Oh. hell. yeah. THIS IS THE MIST!!! I love this stuff, my friend who I bought this for loves this stuff (hey, Katniss!), you will love this stuff. It’s proper magic in a bottle – soothing, hydrating, quick-absorbing? Yes. Layers well under and over makeup? Yes. Multi-use? Yes.

HELLO I LOVE U

 

I wrote a much more detailed review about this mist for W2Beauty, so I definitely recommend checking that out if you want more deets.

 

Day 3 down! See you for the next 97 days!
