[K-Beauty] Missha Total Repairing Hand Cream

I have been trying this Missha Total Repairing Hand Cream for a while now and finally have an opinion about it.

I actually got a few of these and gave them as presents because when I sampled it in store, it seemed like it would be nice and my hands felt soft after trying it.

It's also a perfect size to keep in your purse.

It's not too greasy, which is nice. It's not very thick, which is kind of nice if you don't want something heavy.

What I didn't notice in the store is the fragrance...because I was inundated with other scents from the store at the time. It's kind of strong and isn't a smell I like...not at all a scent I like. It smells like a strange combination of fake baby powder, clean linen scent, and some sort of fruit (?).

Even with the strange scent, I decided to go through with using the entire tube. I thought maybe it would help my hands, lighten them, smooth them out, and generally de-age them.

It did make them slightly smoother, at first. However, it was maybe just an effect of using hand cream. It was not a long-lasting change. It also didn't make my skin lighter as was advertised.

Overall, I probably would not repurchase because of the scent. There are plenty of other small hand creams I can keep in my purse, like all of the Innisfree hand creams (Amazon link), with much better scents.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
