Garnier Oil Clear Pore Tightening and Anti-Shine Astringent

Obviously, I failed the ten-post challenge. ^^;;; I even prepared photos of products for review, yet I couldn’t blog in the past week because I was very busy and exhausted. But that doesn’t mean I won’t do it anymore. 馃槢

Anyway, I’ll be reviewing now this cheap but effective toner:

Garnier OilClear 001v2
Garnier Oil Clear Pore Tightening and Anti-Shine Astringent

I got interested in Garnier after I tried their Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream. Thanks to Netbooster Asia and Garnier, I got more Garnier products to try including the Oil Clear Astringent. 馃檪 I was very happy when I received this as I need anything that would control the oiliness of my t-zone.

Hauls since January 2012 and the Glam Love ladies on Instax

I don’t haul like mad. I only get what suits me or what I really need. Because, honestly, it’s hard to have other _expensive_ interests such as gaming and toys. Budget is a must for me! For all of us actually. 馃槢 But I admit I sometimes buy cosmetics on impulse. Lately I have been into buying lipsticks and blushes. The thought of summer made me want some corals although I keep getting drawn away by pretty pinks, reds, and plums that I find. ^^;

Below are what I’ve acquired so far since January this year.

FOTD 2012 February 11

I found out not too long ago that my brother changed the settings of my camera that’s why most of my FOTDs and FOTNs were either grainy or blurry. Lesson learned — Double-check settings of camera before taking pictures. Stupid of me not to think of that when I wondered all the time why the quality of the pictures didn’t look too well. Oh, since I browsed through previous FOTDs and FOTNs, I realized how I _slightly_ got better in makeup application.

Moving on to the point of this post…

Testing the Skin Food Agave Cactus Toner

Skin Food Cactus Agave Toner

This sample of Skin Food Cactus Agave Toner came with my purchase of Urban Decay Ammo from a local seller. I only got to use it the other day. It’s the first time I’ve used a toner. Honestly, I’m unsure what a toner does and what it is for. I found out, after a little research, that it minimizes the appearance of pores and not ideal for very dry skin. In spite of knowing it may make my skin drier, I skipped application of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I just applied a BB cream after the toner.

What’s New on Joiz’s Desk

While my friends, Shabby and Karen have been regularly delivering more-than-awesome posts here, this will be my first. I won’t be talking a lot about make up and rather concentrate on other beauty/fitness-related products and topics but since it is my first post, I’ll be mimicking the two other ladies by introducing you to a few of my own make up. I don’t wear a lot of make up on a regular basis so I don’t have a lot either. Anyway, let me introduce you to my more-than-usual messy desk.
