7 days, 7 inspirations

1) Re:NK
Let me introduce Re:NK
it is one of the rising brands in Korean cosmetic/beauty industry
I received 3 sets of trial kits including 5 mL of perfect day serum
and 5mL of perfect day cream for research purposes for SURE magazine in Korea

it is quite a lot of amount for free
(5 * 3 = 15 mL)
because the original size they sell for perfect day serum is 40mL for 130,000 Korean won
which is about $130
that means it's about $48.75 worth of serum (serum only, not including the cream)

i love it :)

let's talk about the effects now
first impression: love the smell
it is the typical type of Korean cosmetic smell
meaning that it smells very feminine more like a body cream/perfume like scent
this way it makes you convinced that this product is MADE for women,
is that much works for senstivie types and LIGHTWEIGHTED

serum was clear colored in sight
it was like a water drop so I felt very moisturized applying it all over my face
after using the toner to cleanse my face

notice the "RE" in Re:NK?
re stands for
1) remove (dead skin cells)
2) repair (getting back to your skin's original strength of power
meaning that it wants to make your skin more firmed I guess)
3) recovery (helps to get back to your youth more quickly,
anti-aging much?)

how to use: 2-3 drops are enough and apply it all over your face lightly
to be moisturized

so far the serum was great
it wasn't like some of the other products
that are too strong for me (I heard that some anti-aging products
don't work for below 30s of age)
the cream that followed with it was also very light
as its name suggests, perfect to be used in the morning and day
as it makes your skin feels like you have a protective moisturized layer
from all the damages and dusts you receive from daily routines of works

2) grape juice (100% juice, nothing added)
my mom uses Hurom juice maker which costs about a little less $400 in Korea
(300 something I forgot how much it actually was)
and it is great for those who loves fresh juice like I drink every morning
it is a great routine to start off a day feeling refreshed and fully vitaminized
normally we drink tomato juice
but today my mom made it with grapes (had to put in about 2 full grapes to make about a grande/venti size)

how do I like it? love it of course
it feels unbelievable drinking the 100% juice coming from the fruits themselves only
no sugar, syrups or any other ingredients added

3) forget me not

forget me not scarves are all produced in Italy (Como)
(using a very fine digital print mode)

the illustrations had been featured in collaborations with other brands in the industry
from fashion to beauty

available for purchases in 10 countries all around the world
such as shops in Barney's, Harvey Nichols, Colette, and Harrods

designer Coco is French illustrator and art director who works with
a well known clients Evian, Longchamp and Karl Lagerfeld

4) National Breast Cancer Month: pink fashion?

these pretty bracelets cost $18 each
the bracelets can be shipped free from shopping online
& the portion of the sales goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation

help out the survivors and those who fight with the cancer
& look pretty in pink, green, blue, and or orange-ish shades all :)
