Iron girl

On Tuesday I spent most of my day studying, as I wrote in my previous post, in two weeks from now I will have a very important test in a course that I failed twice !!! So this time I’m investing everything to get past it and move on.
The last days are insanely hot days, days in which it is impossible to leave home because the heavy heat. We decided to chill the kids a bit and took them out to the pool / fountain in the afternoon and the kids ran in between the streams and cooled down. I live in Ashdod, a city that I think is one of the most beautiful in the country, and here’s another beautiful piece from the city I’ve lived in since 1993.

On Wednesday morning, I went to visit my sister and my mother, and as always, we sat and eat a cake and drink a cup of coffee in the balcony in front of the day. And of course my sister didn’t let me go empty-handed, my sister bought me a stunning black swimsuit from American Eagle, the swimsuit is just perfect! In addition to it, she gave me two stunning dresses she stopped wearing, so thank you my sister.

Later I went looking for a good sunscreen on drugstore and I bought a transparent facial sunscreen with 50 SPF. After smearing it at home, I felt it was slightly oily, a fact that upset me. In addition to sunscreen, I also purchased a Vitamin C Enriched Facial Serum, which helps slow down the aging process. And again, after I got home, I tried it and found out that it has a shimmery shade, if I know it before I bought it I don’t really know if I had go for it. Anyway, after applying the serum my skin felt nice and soft. The product is somewhat reminiscent of the glam glow shimmering face cream.

On Thursday morning, after six months, I decided that I had to go to a nurse at my health fund and remove an earring that was stuck in my right ear for a half year now. Six months ago I had an ear infection and it swelled so much that the earring was swallowed by the earlobe. And the hole closed with the time and I was left with an earring that stuck in my ear. So the nurse sent me to a surgeon and after he laughed at me he pulled the earring out of my ear with one pull and no anesthesia. This is what it looks like:

because I was such a good and brave girl, I rewarded myself and purchased some “candies”. This is an Israeli cosmetics company that launched a tint that is very reminiscent of Benefit’s famous tint. I love the tint to create a natural tan look to the cheeks and it is really nice for the lips if I like to go for a childish and natural look.

And today, I decided to become the Iron Girl.

I’ll update later.

Korean ‘So.ko’ Products – first impression

The products of the Korean so.ko company recently arrived at the drug store near me and started to catch my attention. The packaging of the products is amazing in my opinion, this gorgeous light pink combined with gold, omg I love it!

I purchased several products to get to know the brand and its qualities. I purchased hydrogel eye patches, daily masks and glow serum. Here is my opinion on the products after one use:

Eye patches:

it is silicone patches with tiny gold particles. The patches are enriched with 24 karat gold, caffeine, collagen and hyaluronic acid. it is written that the patches helps to give a fresh look and help to soothe the skin. After putting the patches under my eyes for 15 minutes, I did feel that the patches were refreshing and moisturizing the skin. After removing them, I felt that the skin was more elastic. In general, the experience was very pleasant and the skin feels more fresh and essential.

Morning glow – daily masks:

There is no way to look good in these fabric masks but the goal is worth it, I hope. The first sensation that comes after putting on the mask is an immediate chill and that is the feeling that accompanied me to every 15 minutes that the mask was on me. The mask has an amazing flower fragrance and it contains hyaluronic acid and blue floral extracts. The mask is designed to soothe the skin and provide moisture and shine. After removing the mask, I felt that the skin got the amount of moisture it needed and the skin felt more tense. I was very excited about this product. It is highly recommended.

Glow serum:

The serum is enriched with 24-carat gold particles and hyaluronic acid. After placing the serum, the little gold sparkels does appear on the facial skin, not everyone will like it, but the serum does revive the facial skin and makes it look glowing. The serum comes with a dropper, which I love very much and find it useful. In general, it’s a cute gimmick. I didn’t fall for it.

In conclusion, I was pleasantly impressed by the brand so.ko. Their prices are relatively low compared to the big brands and the products give results.
