Facial Foam and Eye Roll-on

Han Hyo-ju and Mun Chae-won are so cute.  Brilliant Legacy is one of my favourite series

I have an unhealthy obsession with Korean Dramas.

Like very unhealthy.

So much that I'm upset at my parents for not making me Korean.


The thing is, I went for almost a year without watching Koreans.  Then I bought two K-drama series for my parents in KL.  I wanted to spend time watching these with them but I ended up being super hooked instead!  

And when I get hooked, I get hooked bad!  Late nights, neglicting house work - I've even neglected my PS3!

The late nights are especially bad because I feel tired and lethargic the next day.  And don't even mention the bags!  The puffy dark circles around my eyes - they are my testament to late night K-drama and gaming! 

Thankfully I bought some Men's facial products when we were in KL.  I'm not really a big fan of cosmetic stuff (especially for men), but these products had me wanting to try it out.

The facial cream I wanted to try out because its got whitening!  I don't think they sell this Australia because eryone here is trying to tan themselves instead lolz. 

But the thought of being white enough to be Korean did cross my mind when I bought this.

And eye roll-on I wanted to try if helps with my raccoon eyes.

After a few weeks of using them, it felt like both products were working, but I wasn't entirely sure.  I thought I'd better get evidence before I start proclaiming their wonders.

So I used both diligently for two weeks.  Applying both in the morning and both in the evening.  Then I compared before and after photos for myself.

And the results? 

Well..  I'm not really sure if the skin whitening worked.  The photos didn't turn any conclusive evidence because taking photos a week after changed a lot of settings.  

I'll continue to use the skin whitening foam until the tube runs out.  When someone mistakes me for Korean it's definitely working  (although someone did tell my fianc√© that she looked pale and she's using a similar product so maybe it is working).

What I will attest to is the eye roll-on.  You can see the before and after shots after a week of use.
I stayed up watching Koreans for this experiment! Left photo the result of a few sleepless nights.  Right is a week later after using the eye roll on.  The dark lines are still there but the puffiness is gone. Its in black and white so i could match the photo contrasts better.

But then I thought, what if my puffy eyes disappeared just because I slept better that week?  

Hmmm. Good point.

So I improved my experiement and applied it only to one eye!!!

Anh begged me to stop the experiment because she didn't want to marry me with one funny eye (she doesn't see the sacrifice I do for science?) 

But anyhows I agreed to her request and only tried the one-eyed experiment for a few days.

I also agreed not to do the skin whitening test on only one half of my face.

Slight fold on my left eye which I didn't use the roll on.  Why are my eyes so sleepy? And how come my eyelids are not symmetrical? Lolz

Anyways that ends my product review.  Quite good I reckon.  I need to do more extensive studies so I'll get more of these roll on things.  They're like $15 here in Australia but only about half the price in KL.
