Tips On Thursdays #4 - How To Clean Your Ears

Everyone has EARWAX! No need to be ashamed...unless people can see them tryna escape your ear

To keep your ears clean, you can use several tools.
I don't know if it's because I'm Korean but we get our hands on ear cleaning tools that look like ity bity spoons [ you can see some in the youtube video or down below in the links]
You can have someone [you trust XP] use the tool on you or you can try to do it by yourself.
BUT! BE CAREFUL! You don't want it to get stuck in ear and give you ear damage!

So...with that said, I suggest another option.
Use QTips! Some of you may be already doing this.
It works better right after you shower.

This Tip is similar to my Bellybutton Cleaning Tip Video.

So that's pretty much it for this Tip =]

If you have any topics for Tips On Thursday that you would like me to do please let me know #RoyaltyGuruTOT =]

Please Please Please be careful!! whether you are using the ear wax tools and/or the Qtips!

My Opinion:

I like the variety of products and believe that IPSY is getting better. The two products that I didn't really care for was the Pacifica and Pixi products. Pacifica's BB Cream had no coverage and had glitter instead [they should've just called it a highlighter]. Pixi's mascara had no WOW factor. But overall, the size of the sample products overall were pretty good.

Overall Score:

Birchbox August 2013

What: Birchbox August 2013 [Finishing School]
Where: Birchbox

Item Details:

*If you want a more detailed review about the products, leave comments on here or youtube video, tweet me, facebook me, or email me~ you know the drill ;P

My Opinion: 
I think they should have picked a more general? theme because the topic 'finishing school' is more appropriate for college students and older, so high school students who are subscribed might not have the use for it as much. With that said, Anne Taylor is also more appealing for the older ages. I would probably suggest a sunscreen or a BB or CC cream instead of the foot wipes and/or the fashion tape. Or, going with their theme, maybe a translucent powder to 'finish' off your look. More items I might have suggested are: any item that may have sunscreen, shoes inserts or insoles. But I like the fact that because of Birchbox I get to try new brands and new items.

Overall Score:

Product Review: Dasani Drops [Influenster]

Product Review: Dasani Drops [Influenster]

What: Dasani Drops [Influenster]
Flavor: Pink Lemonade & Cherry Pomegranate
Price: ~$4 
Where: Supermarket (Shop Rite / Kroger / Publix / WalMart / Super Target)
Nutrition Facts: 

  • Healthier than soda
  • 0 Calories 
  • Grab and Go 
  • No spoons 
  • No mess

  • Pricey

My Opinion: 
Anything with cherry usually taste like kids' medicine to me so I am not a huge fan of the Cherry Pomegranate flavor but I think most people will like it and it is not too strong of the 'medicine feel'. As for Pink Lemonade...I <3 it. Just the right amount of flavor. I really want to try the strawberry kiwi one and I will probably use the coupon that came with the sample since it is a little pricey in my opinion and share one coupon with a friend. 
Anywayz....I think it'll be awesome to bring it around in your bag and use it at restaurants. I am sensitive in what water I drink because...long story..but sometimes water tastes funny and this REALLY helps! and it is cheaper and healthier than carbonated drinks!
I don't know if this review helps THAT much because I haven't tried other brands but all I can say is that I like the sample I received :D
Thanks Influenster for another great experience with a product!

Overall Score: 

BTW! Try this to cool your heat! ;p

Product Review: CoverGirl LineBlast 24 HR Felt Tip Eyeliner


What: CoverGirl LineBlast 24 HR Felt Tip Eyeliner
Color: 800 Enduring Black
How Much Product: 6M
Price: $3-5
Where: Drugstores (Ulta / Target / Walgreens / CVS / RiteAid / WalMart)
Waterproof: NO


  • Stays on all day
  • Doesn't crease
  • Price is decent
  • Shake it for more product to come out


  • Not waterproof

My Opinion:
Been LOVING this eyeliner...I never buy non-waterproof eyeliners but this one stays put even in the humid and hot weather. It glides on pretty nicely as well. The tip is pointy for those cat eye looks but you can thicken up the line and darken it as well.
I wore it from 9AM to 9PM and not even a slight hint of smudging or transfer to other parts of my eye.

Overall Score:

Only downfall is that it is NOT waterproof but still good none the less ;]

Well..I hope that helps you at least a lil ;]
Until next time~~
