On my radar: 2ndskin, the jojoba company serums, + new giveaway

these two serums I am absolutely in love with :)
remember this review post of the jojoba company's oil and day/night creams?
now I am more addicted to these natural beauties
as I am amazed by the lightweight serums

they are:
jojoba absolute serum & antioxidant serum
(that urban space pouch is so useful for vacations
two pockets are detachable
and I can put in all my brushes, travel size kits,
and other necessary items all in one placement)

(thank you @Urban_Space)

photos credit to: the jojoba company
(30mL for Korea 98,000 won)

(30mL for 88,000 won)
I put a link on both serums so check it out to see how much it is in your country

the package looks the same
easy to grab in glass
the difference is with the liquid
the above absolute serum is clearer while antioxidant is milkier
in appearance

Jojoba Absolute Serum works best for you
if you want to use anti-ageing product
this is a firming serum (plump and lifting effect) to prevent face shape's ruin
from extravagant diets and as a natural ageing process
& also the wrinkles reducer I believe

you can use small amount of pump

Antioxidant Serum is perfect for all normal and oily skin tones
I am under the oily category by the way
this is for hydrating purpose best works for those days
when the moisture gotten away from sun exposure & outdoor activities
this is a product of very soothing one
(for dry skin I recommend you using this serum + the overnight renewal cream
at night: this night cream is extra extra moisturizing and rich in cream)

as you may already know
the jojoba company is free from all the bad chemicals you might be aware of
feel natural, breezy, soothing effect by using the jojoba company's products!

dress H&M
leggings 2NDSKIN
sunglasses BVLGARI
ring ALAND


do you love my cut-out leggings?
they are from 2ndskin
it's a Korean brand with an American twist/style

or simply think of it as Korean version of American Apparel ;)

I purchased my leggings about two years ago from ALAND
(or maybe 1 and a half can't remember exactly when)
but I wore it new today

it's quite sad that you realize you bought so much trendy items
but happened to find them under other dresses and jeans
(stuck in there somehow for some reason...)
and feels like you've just won a treasure hunt?
that felt like it today

more of my favorite finds at 2ndskin store

love the zipper back for slimmer look
15,900 Korean won (or think of it as $15.90)

I love the apple green!
$13.90 each



I want just about every basic long skirts and leggings
that way I can make just about hundred different looks worn with
other tops, accessories and shoes for changes :)

images credit to and shop available at

now let's welcome the new giveaway :)

do you want to look chic even when you workout/exercise?
do you worry about bra exposure when you wear loose tanks
and low neck dresses?
no worries

this bandeau/tank is perfect for solution
the solid one costs $33 and the leopard costs $37
now one of you readers can win the tank of your own! :)
thanks to Chickies & Diamond Girl Media
