Now that I think about it, it is sort of true.
Can't have enough. ♥
Anyways, two parcels finally arrived yesterday! I was on the way out of my house and I saw these two long boxes jutting out of the mail box and nearly cried wtf. I was sooo happy and excited to see my packages when I realised... I can't open them.
Da da da da da~ I'm lovin' it. ♥
Holika Holika 3 Seconds Starter Vita Complex ♥
Super vibrant packaging~ ♥
Looks like a droplet! ♥
Super comfortable to hold. ♥
Super love the nozzle! ♥
|Michelle-proof packaging hehehe. ♥|
One thing I love about the 3 Seconds Starter is that the bottle is sturdy and doesn't leak, meaning it's great to take along travelling. Being the total klutz I am, I accidentally dropped the bottle around ten times today and thankfully it didn't break and spill everywhere. This gets an A+ for durability and explode-proof-ness! I hate it when things explode in your bag wtf - especially shampoo and moisturiser.
|The emulsion feels like water! ♥|
Do you like the amazing GIF I made? It's fabulous right? From this you can see how the 3 Seconds Starter is similar to water but not as liquid-y if that makes sense hehehe. The consistency is slightly thicker than water and is sort of jelly-ish at the same time~ I guess you could say it's like a watery gel!
The 3 Seconds Starter feels really nice and cooling. You're supposed to apply this clear emulsion and let it absorb into your skin before you use toner and moisturiser so it's somewhat like a primer for your other skincare products! This step must be incredibly popular in Asia as I've seen so many different emulsions from Korean brands yet never seen an European brand sell it. Maybe we'll see it in stores soon - like the BB cream trend which has just hit Western countries!
|You can see how my skin is absorbing the emulsion! ♥|
This emulsion is incredibly hydrating and makes my skin feel nice and moist after I apply it. ♥ I love using this because the gel is light and is easily absorbed by my skin. My face must be incredibly thirsty wtf.
|This photo was incredibly hard to take. I had to use my foot hehehe. ♥|
After applying the 3 Seconds Starter, my moisturiser feels a lot more rich and heavier than usual, meaning I have to apply less than I normally use. I actually quite like this fact because it means I can get more uses out of each product! But remember, this doesn't mean you can skip using your lotion or cream or gel - the emulsion is like an essence that locks the moisture in. This particular one (the Vita Complex) is supposed to make you skin brighter and silkier, while keeping your skin moisturised and healthy. I find that while it does make your skin slightly less dull, it's not really noticeable and the effect fades away after a while.
On the downside, one thing that absolutely puts me off this product is the scent. To me, this emulsion smells absolutely horrible like a sickly artificial orange scent - similar to the smell of orange cough syrup. It also smells like aeroplanes and detergent wtf. Makes me somewhat dizzy and want to puke. *Cries* But thankfully, the scent is unnoticeable when you apply it on your face. Yay~ ♥
But other than the fragrance, I absolutely love this emulsion because it's nice and cooling as well as hydrating! When it runs out, I'll probably try using another "flavour" of this line - perhaps the collagen one? Hehehehe it's pink and you can never go wrong with pink. ♥
Lots of Love,
