Too Cool For School The Coolest Holiday Egg Recipe Set

K-beauty became a huge trend all over the world, but one of the first brands in the Western market was Too Cool For School. I found this brand at Sephora a few years ago, and I fell in love with two of their products. There are few products from Too Cool For School that are trending online like Pumpkin Mask, Dinoplatz series for its unique packaging or Art class makeup series. Today I want to introduce you to Too Cool For School and their products. 

About the brand Too Cool For School

Too Cool For School is a K-beauty brand focused on creativity. I'm pretty sure lots of young people love this brand since they have creative, colourful designs. It doesn't mean that TCFS products are lacking in terms of formulation - it's a brand with many interesting skincare, body care and makeup products. The brand was founded in 2009, but it became popular all around the world quite quickly. 

We won't get through all the ingredients one by one, but we will focus on some of the most important information about products. 

Products sponsored by the brand are signified with (*) next to the product name 

Too Cool For School The Coolest Holiday Egg Recipe Set*

This set contains four different products, and one of them is my favourite body butters.

It's my favourite TCFS product of all the times. I'm not a fan of body care, because finding a product that works well with my skin problems is not that easy. Let's grab a look what's inside: 

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter has a wide range of use - people use it to prepare dishes, in medicine, but also cosmetics. It's an emollient which all skin types should love, but oily skin might have a tiny problem with it. It has a mild UV protection (around SPF 3) so it shouldn't be used as a sunscreen. It's great for dry skin and during the winter to protect the skin since it leaves a film on the surface of the skin. It's also a source of vitamins such as Vitamin E and Vitamin A. Vitellaria Paradoxa trees aka shea butter trees can be found in Africa that's why it is so important to use shea butter from brands with Fairtrade certification. Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil is one of the most common oils in skincare. This emollient is full in oleic and palmitoleic acid. This oil is great for body care and hair care, every skin type should enjoy it. Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil is an emollient, full of oleic and linoleic acid. Sensitive and dry skin should enjoy it. Panthenol is nothing else than Pro-vitamin B5, a soothing moisturizer with positive meaning to the skin barrier. It speeds up the healing process. Next ingredient we have to focus on is the main star of this product - Egg Yolk Extract. I wouldn't expect a lot from it. Tocopheryl Acetate is a form of Vitamin E. It's an antioxidant with some moisturizing properties. It protects your skin from free radical damage. It supports UVB protection, but Vitamin E in the form of Tocopheryl Acetate is not as helpful as Tocopherol. Centella Asiatica Extract is an ingredient that stays in skincare trend. Lots of ingredients used in skincare have a long history of use in medicine. This ingredient isn't different because Centella is a part of Ayurveda, a traditional (or if you prefer - alternative) medicine used by people for ages. Nowadays we associate it with India. Centella is a herb primarily applied in skincare for its healing properties. It speeds up the healing process, and that's why acne-prone skin loves it. If you're pregnant or you plan pregnancy, then try to find body care products with Centella Asiatica because it can have a valuable meaning on skin elasticity as well as stretch marks. Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract is quite common in skincare, but what does it do? It supposed to be an antioxidant, but I know it as a sun-sensitive ingredient which you should use before light therapy. It can help with inflammation and moisture. Portulaca Oleracea is a succulent, and a plant used in Korean traditional medicine. It's a source of vitamin A, C and E, omega-3 acids and calcium. Portulaca Oleracea Extract is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. It can help speed up the wound healing that's why people with acne-prone skin, sensitive skin and PIE should look up to this ingredient in products. 

Pueraria Thunbergiana Root Extract or Kudzu Extract. This ingredient has roots in traditional medicine, and it is supposed to keep your skin looking young. Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract is an ingredient which sounds a bit off. Have you ever tried Licorice candy? It was one of the worst nightmares from my childhood, but after many years I can't imagine my life without Licorice, but in skincare. Since I was taught British English, I usually go with word Liquorice and in this version, it sounds like a great name for rice alcohol. It's a source of flavonoids, Galabridin and Glycyrrhizin. Liquorice is a herb with a long tradition of use in herbal medicine. People believe Liquorice has antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract in skincare can help you with pigmentation, and that's why I started to love Licorice. Is there anything better than brightening effect? Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract is an ingredient for traditional medicine, it works as a humectant. Albumen Extract is an emollient, it derivates from the egg. Some people believe that collagen in skincare product will automatically boost the amount of collagen in your skin. It's usually fish collagen and it won't boost collagen in your skin, but it's still a good ingredient. Soluble Collagen makes a film barrier on your skin, this barrier makes your skin look smooth, but at the same time, this ingredient is a great moisturizer. Squalane is an ingredient which I believe everyone should enjoy. In nature, Squalane occurs in human sebum, and it protects the skin from dehydration. Sadly, with age, the amount of Squalane in sebum decreases. Usually, Squalane in your skincare products comes from olives or sugar cane. It's a light, stable oil with a single bond (squalENE has double bonds, and both these ingredients shouldn't be mistaken). It has no colour and scent. It's perfect for sensitive skin and dehydrated skin since it strengths the lipid barrier. It speeds up the healing process, and it won't clog your skin. 

Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil is nothing else than Argan Oil, I remember when a few years ago Argan Oil was super trendy. It's a source of oleic acid, Argan Oil comes from Morocco and it's a good emollient for dry skin, I would be careful if you have acne-prone skin since it might be a source of new pimples. I use Argan Oil on my hair, and I enjoy it even if I could easily name a few other oils better than argan oil for hair & skin. Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil or Baobab Seed Oil is a source of oleic and linoleic acids. It's also a source of many nutritious substances such as Vitamin E or Vitamin A. It's a great emollient, and even acne-prone skin should enjoy it. Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil or Sweet Almond Oil, is an emollient, and a source of oleic acid - not the best news for acne-prone skin, but it's one of two of my favourite hair oils. Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil is an emollient, and it's no surprise - a source of oleic acid. Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil is not an oil but a wax ester. It's an emollient and it is very similar to human sebum which makes it a great ingredient for the skin. Sodium Hyaluronate is a salt form of a popular Natural Moisturizing Factor - Hyaluronic Acid. Ceramide NP or Ceramide 3 is an ingredient which we want to see in our products. Ceramides naturally occur in human skin, and they have a dominant role. You can find them in the lipid barrier of the skin along with cholesterol and fatty acids. Ceramide is like a cement of the skin. It makes sure that your skin won't get dehydrated. 

Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream & Body Butter is a product which I tried as a first K-beauty body care product. The reason why I bought full-size version is easy - the scent got me, but soon enough I found out that this formula is helping me keep my skin nourished and I have fewer problems with irritation after using it. The scent is sweet, but I would say it's on a powder side than heavy, floral scent. I don't think that it reminds me of eggs, maybe the colour reminds me of eggs a bit (or unbaked cake). 

Too Cool For School The Coolest Holiday Egg Recipe Set

Too Cool For School Egg-zyme Whipped Foam*

Glycerin, Myristic Acid, Methylpropanediol, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Water, Potassium Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauric Acid, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Peg-40 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Egg Yolk Extract, Lysozyme, Bromelain, Papain, Albumen Extract, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Polyquaternium-39, Fragrance, Tocopheryl Acetate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Algae Extract, Eclipta Prostrata Leaf Extract, Dipropylene Glycol, Peg-14m, Trisodium Edta, Hydrogenated Lecithin, 1,2-hexanediol, Fructooligosaccharides, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Butylene Glycol, Beta-glucan, Lecithin, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide Np, Folic Acid, Cholesterol, Raffinose, Alcohol, Tromethamine, Panthenol, Sodium Benzoate, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Phenoxyethanol, Mannitol 

Bromelain is an enzyme, it derivates from pineapple, and in skincare, we mostly use it as an enzyme exfoliant. It's ideal for sensitive skin. Papain is very similar to Bromelain if it comes to function - both are enzyme exfoliants, but it derives from papaya. Centella Asiatica Extract is an ingredient that stays in skincare trend. Lots of ingredients used in skincare have a long history of use in medicine. This ingredient isn't different because Centella is a part of Ayurveda, a traditional (or if you prefer - alternative) medicine used by people for ages. Nowadays we associate it with India. Centella is a herb primarily applied in skincare for its healing properties. It speeds up the healing process, and that's why acne-prone skin loves it. If you're pregnant or you plan pregnancy, then try to find body care products with Centella Asiatica because it can have a valuable meaning on skin elasticity as well as stretch marks. Algae Extract is an emollient with moisturizing and anti-aging properties. It derivates from different types of algae. 

Beta-glucan derives from yeast, mushroom (like Chaga or shiitake), seaweed or cereals (oat, wheat, barley). I don't know why, but Beta-Glucan to me smells like wine. Beta-glucan is a stunning humectant with soothing properties. It's great for sensitive skin. Ceramide NP or Ceramide 3 is an ingredient which we want to see in our products. Ceramides naturally occur in human skin, and they have a dominant role. You can find them in the lipid barrier of the skin along with cholesterol and fatty acids. Ceramide is like a cement of the skin. It makes sure that your skin won't get dehydrated. Cholesterol is an ingredient which we associate with health. We talk a lot about good and bad cholesterol, but do you know that cholesterol has a vast meaning for your skin? It's a lipid which you can find in the skin barrier. It makes skin barrier stronger and prevents your skin from irritation and dehydration. In a product, it's an emollient. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 or Matrixyl. It helps with wrinkles and fine lines. It might be an impressive substitute for retinol with fewer side effects. 

I use retinoids that's why I don't use enzyme peels on my face - my skin became too sensitive so if I use any additional peel then I got for ultrasound peel once in a while, but if you plan to buy a scrub, I would be more likely to get Too Cool For School Egg-zyme Whipped Foam than fine-grain scrub, because enzymes are delicate, and this product is more like a cleansing foam, so you get a scrub with a foam - sensitive skin and dry skin will enjoy it, oily skin might need something stronger. 

Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask

Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, PEG-32, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Niacinamide, Glycereth-26, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Polysorbate 60, Cetearyl Alcohol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Arginine, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Albumen Extract, Egg Yolk Extract, Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Xanthan Gum, Dextrin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Linoleic Acid, Ceramide NP, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance 

Niacinamide is a miracle ingredient. It does lots of great work. Do you have problems with dark spots? Try Niacinamide! Acne? Niacinamide will be an ideal pick for you too! Maybe you've got issues with skin barrier? Solve it with Niacinamide! Wrinkles? You might want to try Niacinamide as well. Sensitive skin might find Niacinamide bit problematic when it's mixed with Vitamin C or used in the same routine as Vitamin C. I can't deny Niacinamide is a skincare treasure! Arginine is an amino acid, a moisturizer with antioxidant properties. Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water is probably less common than Coconut Oil in beauty products, but it's a lightweight humectant. 

This mask blew my mind! I'm not a fan of sharing my opinion on sheet mask after using it once, but this one is different. My experiences with sheet masks lately are mixed, but Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask was probably my best skincare experience lately. I used it during Tonic15 New Year Pamper Party, and this mask is not your typical cellulose mask! It's solid white, and it reminds me of gypsum face mask, but the fabric is soft and full of essence. The essence stays in the mask well, so you can wear it even when you're at your job in front of the computer. My skin was hydrated, and after few minutes redness from the skin went away, my skin was glowing and felt so good. 

Too Cool For School All-In-One Egg Mellow Cream

Water, Isohexadecane, Glycerin, Egg Yolk Extract/Extrait De Jaune D'oeuf, Triethylhexanoin, Sorbitan Stearate, Stearic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl Alcohol, Niacinamide, Sorbitan Oleate, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, Piper Methysticum Leaf/Root/Stem Extract, Dimethicone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Arctium Lappa Root Extract, Phellinus Linteus Extract, Soluble Collagen, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Phenoxyethanol, Sucrose Cocoate, Fragrance/Parfum, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Pueraria Thunbergiana Root Extract, Cnidium Officinale Root Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Paeonia Lactiflora Root Extract, Carbomer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Polyquaternium-51, Albumen Extract, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Glycosyl Trehalose, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Squalane, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Alcohol, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Raffinose, Adenosine, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Disodium Edta, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Isononyl Isononanoate, Polyglyceryl-10 Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cetearyl Alcohol, Lecithin, Polyglyceryl-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Polysorbate 60, Tromethamine, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Inulin Lauryl Carb Amate, Folic Acid, Ceramide Np, Cholesterol, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Pullulan, Panthenol, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985) 

Cetyl Alcohol is good alcohol and while writing that I reminded myself of an old joke about two drunk men drinking methanol and one said to the other one - we should drink faster, it's getting dark here - obviously, it's dark humour, because you are not supposed to drink methanol, so in this case, ethanol is also good alcohol. Cetyl alcohol is an oily emollient and emulsifier. It locks the water in your skin and prevents it from dehydration. Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract also known as Japanese Mountain Yam, this extract is told to be moisturizing and brightening antioxidant with a positive effect on wrinkles. Some people believe that collagen in skincare product will automatically boost the amount of collagen in your skin. It's usually fish collagen and it won't boost collagen in your skin, but it's still a good ingredient. Soluble Collagen makes a film barrier on your skin, this barrier makes your skin look smooth, but at the same time, this ingredient is a great moisturizer. 

Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract is an ingredient which sounds a bit off. Have you ever tried Licorice candy? It was one of the worst nightmares from my childhood, but after many years I can't imagine my life without Licorice, but in skincare. Since I was taught British English, I usually go with word Liquorice and in this version, it sounds like a great name for rice alcohol. It's a source of flavonoids, Galabridin and Glycyrrhizin. Liquorice is a herb with a long tradition of use in herbal medicine. People believe Liquorice has antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract in skincare can help you with pigmentation, and that's why I started to love Licorice. Is there anything better than brightening effect? Squalane is an ingredient which I believe everyone should enjoy. In nature, Squalane occurs in human sebum, and it protects the skin from dehydration. Sadly, with age, the amount of Squalane in sebum decreases. Usually, Squalane in your skincare products comes from olives or sugar cane. It's a light, stable oil with a single bond (squalENE has double bonds, and both these ingredients shouldn't be mistaken). It has no colour and scent. It's perfect for sensitive skin and dehydrated skin since it strengths the lipid barrier. It speeds up the healing process, and it won't clog your skin. Adenosine is another elegant ingredient. It speeds up the healing process and repairs the skin barrier. It's ideal for inflamed skin, and it might have a positive effect on skin elasticity. Hydrolyzed Collagen is a smaller version of collagen. In general, collagen works as film ingredient, because its molecules are too big to get through the skin layers, that's why we use Vitamin C & other ingredients to boost collagen production. Both - regular & hydrolyzed versions are great moisturizers. 

It's a lightweight moisturizer which even oily skin should enjoy. I do not believe in all 5-in-one effect, but it does make your skin moist and looking fresh. The scent is quite weird, and not everyone will like it, but personally - I'm a fan of TCFS products and their unique scents. 

Too Cool For School Egg Soothing Gel Patch Set

Too Cool For School Egg Soothing Gel Patch Set

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Egg Yolk Extract, Niacinamide, Albumen Extract, Glycereth-26, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Chloropenesin, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Sodium Polyacrylate, Adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water, Melaleuca Asiatica Leaf Extract, Arginine, Fragrance, Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract, Disodium EDTA, Dextrin, Sorbitan Isostearate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopherol 

Too Cool For School Egg Soothing Gel Patch Set

This set is phenomenal! The patches are super thin, it feels like 2nd skin. They are soaked in essence. Too Cool For School Egg Soothing Gel Patch is free of essential oils and that's amazing! They help me a lot lately, I have huge problems with skin dryness after Aklief, and it's one of a few products which I can use. It should work well for sensitive skin, but every skin if different. 

Too Cool For School Water Flip Tinted Balm


Too Cool For School Water Flip Tinted Balm

Water, Hydrogenated Poly(C6-14 Olefin), Butylene Glycol, Microcrystalline, Synthetic Wax, Polyethylene, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/Hexastearate/Hexarosinate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Squalane, CI 77491, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sorbitan Isostearate, Dimethicone, CI 15850, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, CI 15985, CI 77499, CI 17200, Fragrance, Sodium Phytate, CI 45410, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Citrus Unshiu Fruit Extract, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin 

Too Cool For School Water Flip Tinted Balm

I'm pretty sure I had colour #05. I have mixed feelings about it. I tested before Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Palazzo Vitti - entire series, and I found there some of my favourite colours, I even used to carry one - #06 plum purfle - with me in a bag. It wasn't an ideal series, but the application was easier even if Too Cool For School Water Flip Tinted Balm has better, more natural finishing. It blends well, but I had issues with packaging malfunction - you have to put it back with your finger - maybe I just had an issue with it and other products from this series work fine. 

Too Cool For School Artclass Tracage Silk Fit Lipstick

Too Cool For School Artclass Tracage Silk Fit Lipstick

Dimethicone, Diisostearyl Malate, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Microcrystalline, Silica, Titanium Dioxide, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isononyl Isononanoate, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Synthetic Wax, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Polybutene, CI 77491, Ethylene/Propylene Copolymer, CI 15985, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Polyglyceryl-2 Diisostearate, Polyethylene, Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Fragrance, Limonene, Citronellol, Geraniol, CI 77492, CI 15850, CI 17200, CI 77499, CI 42090 

Too Cool For School Artclass Tracage Silk Fit Lipstick

Just look at this luxurious packaging! The design of this lipstick got me, plus the formula that doesn't make my lips stick is a huge benefit. I got shade 705 which is more like a nude/dirty pink shade. I like intensive colours that's why personally I wouldn't choose this shade, but I'm sure many women will love it. 

Too Cool For School Milky Body Scrub

Too Cool For School Milky Body Scrub*

Water/Aqua/Eau, Kaolin, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Oleyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol Laurate, Sodium Chloride, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Citric Acid, Fragrance/Parfum, Carbomer, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Shell Powder, Hydrated Silica, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Silica, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Sucrose, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate 

Kaolin is an ingredient which you probably know well because it's nothing else than clay! It's a great absorber, especially good for oily skin. Citric Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) - a chemical exfoliant. It's derived from fruits like lemon. It's a weak acid and usually weaker AHA acids act like moisturizers. In this case, Citric Acid helps with the pH level of the formula. Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil - my feelings about this ingredient are mixed. Lots of people use Coconut Oil to remove makeup, but for some skin types, Coconut Oil can trigger your acne. It's an emollient and it can be great for dry skin or hair. Silica is a thickener with magical properties for acne-prone and oily skin. It absorbs sebum, but at the same time, it can reflect the light to make your skin looking healthy. 

Too Cool For School Milky Body Scrub was a huge surprise for me since I didn't know TCFS has such product. It smells quite natural - like almonds and coconut together. It's not an exfoliator which I would recommend to use on face, but as a part of your body care routine is fine. It's not a very harsh scrub, using it twice a week should be enough to remove dead cells from your skin. 

Too Cool For School Egg Collagen Melting Ampoule, Too Cool For School Milky Body Scrub, Too Cool For School Coconut Milky Oil Lotion, Too Cool For School Egg-zyme Whipped Foam

Too Cool For School Egg Collagen Melting Ampoule*

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Methyl Gluceth-10, Methylpropanediol, Pentylene Glycol, Panthenol, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Tromethamine, Caprylyl Glycol, Adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Disodium EDTA, Dextrin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Boswellia Carterii Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Rose Flower Oil, Vetiveria Zizanoides Root Oil, Amyris, Balsamifera Bark Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Albumen Extract, Egg Yolk Extract 

Saccharum Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract has moisturizing properties. Saccharum Officinarum is used to produce sugar and this species is typical for New Guinea. It has other property which you might like, I know Sugar Cane mostly as a brightening ingredient. Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil or Rose Geranium Flower Essential Oil is an essential oil, which means it might be sensitizing for your skin. Pelargonium graveolens is a flower typical for South Africa. You can usually find it in perfumes, aromatherapy or skincare, as a scent ingredient. Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil - you probably know Tea Tree as an essential oil ingredient. EO's are controversial because they are not as safe as people think. Essential oils are similar to Alcohol, some are positive and some are negative because they can cause allergic reactions and be phototoxic or photosensitive. Tea Tree Oil is a good guy, it's super helpful in curing acne. It shouldn't be used straight on your skin, it needs to be diluted. It has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is probably one of the most amusing ingredients in this product. You might know it as Syn-Coll, a patented synthetic tripeptide. It's an ingredient that helps with ageing, it doesn't only protect collagen from degradation, but it boosts collagen production. Products contain up to 3% of Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, and the difference in skin texture is visible after four weeks. 

I haven't tried this sample yet, but I'm aware that my skin won't enjoy it due to the number of essential oils, but I wanted to show you that product like this exists. 

Too Cool For School Milky Coconut Oil Lotion*

Water/Eau, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Poly(C6-14 Olefin), Propanediol, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Dipropylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl-6 Stearate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylic/Capric/Succinic Triglyceride, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, Polyglyceryl-6 Behenate, Fructooligosaccharides, Saccharide Hydrolysate, Fragrance (Parfum), Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Pullulan, Disodium EDTA, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Ceramide NP, Phytosphingosine, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Milk Protein Extract 

Houttuynia Cordata Extract is an ingredient which some people with acne-prone skin loves while for me, my experience was not bad but still all hail Centella! Houttuynia Cordata is a plant, which we still use in Traditional Chinese and Japanese Medicine, it's also known as Heart Leaf or Chinese lizard tail. Funny fact about Houttuynia - it's also called Fish Wort, Fish Leaf, etc. because it's an edible plant and it usually leaves the fishy aftertaste. I eat fish a lot, but I'm not a fan of the fishy taste of low-quality matcha (yep, I'm a tea & fish snob) so I don't think I would enjoy it, I'll stay with enjoying Houttuynia magic in skincare. Houttuynia is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. 

I'm not a fan of body products because they usually have a strong scent or they make me stick to my sheets. Too Cool For School Milky Coconut Oil Lotion has a strong smell, but it's a coconut scent! Too Cool For School is the best when it goes to coconut products. The formula itself feels bit oily but lightweight. It's non-sticky, and I need to buy the full size of this product since usually, I skip body balms during the morning routine so my clothes won't feel sticky.

Sea Water, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Glycerin, Polyquaternium-51, Water, Litsea Cubeba Fruit Oil, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Cynara Scolymus (Artichoke) Leaf Extract, Pteris Multifida Extract, Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Moringa Oleifera Seed Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil, Sea Salt, Canarium Luzonicum Gum Nonvolatiles, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Oil, Cyanocobalamin, Methylpropanediol, Butylene Glycol, Beta-glucan, 1,2-hexanediol, Ectoin, Maltodextrin 

Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract is an ingredient with a long history, you can find it in Chinese Traditional Medicine. Amur Cork Tree Bark Extract has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract is a source of Vitamin B1, B2, B5 and beta-glucan. It's an antioxidant with soothing properties. Acne-prone skin and sensitive skin love this ingredient. Pteris Multifida Extract might sounds unknown to you. The other name of this herb is Feng Wei Cao and as you expect - it's a herb from Chinese Traditional Medicine. It's an antioxidant, and it should calm your skin. Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil is an essential oil. It gives a pleasant scent to the product. 

I haven't used this foam, because of the essential oils, but the name itself reminds me of Neogen Dermalogy Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser. This was a huge surprise for me, I haven't heard about this pink salt series before. 

Too Cool For School Salon De Eyes #1 Boutique Ginger


Too Cool For School Salon De Eyes #1 Boutique Ginger

Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, Talc, Diisostearyl Malate, Titanium Dioxide, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil Isostearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyethylene, Nylon-12, CI 77492, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Mica, CI 16035, Glyceryl Caprylate 

This palette reminds me of affordable makeup palettes which you can find at Rossmann, but the quality is better. The brush that comes inside the palette is not the best, but still useful. It's a delicate palette for everyday use, don't expect incredible pigmentation - it's not a pro makeup palette, but makeup which you can easily buy for a younger sister or use it for work if your dress code is strict, and makeup is a huge problem at your work. This palette has also second version #02 Boutique Rose, I'm a fan of corals that's why the majority of shades in Ginger palette fits me well. Shade 01 is a glitter gold shade, it looks quite intensive on the skin, shade 02 reminds me of roasted nuts with some peach, it's a base shade to cover your entire eyelid. Shade 03 is a bit darker, but still, it looks quite natural and neutral. Shade 04 is a shimmery, deeper gold colour. Shade 05 is a dark peach shade, and shade 06 is a dark brown with tiny bits of glitter, it reminds me of wood, but it's not that obvious colour, it has some reds and gold in it, it's a warm colour and since my skin is cold, it's quite hard for me to make it good on my skin, but it's possible to make it work. I have some feelings for this palette, it's cute and design is 10/10 - Too Cool For School is creative with the design, but their product photos are also well-made. 

Too Cool For School Coconut Milky Mist 

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, PEG-32, Phenoxyethanol, Water, Propanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Water, Octyldodeceth-16, Dimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Diphenyl Dimethicone, Fragrance, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Triethylhexanoin, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Milk Protein Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polyglutamic Acid 

I bought this mist during the sale at Sephora, and I wish Sephora would sell Too Cool For School once again! It's a delicate, coconut mist which you can easily use with makeup. It might be a bit too tall to fit in a bag, but it's quite handy. The bottle contains 80ml of product, so it's not a huge amount, but worth its price. 

Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Body Oil

Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Body Oil 

Water, Mineral Oil, Tetrafluoropropene, Butylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Trehalose, Pentylene Glycol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter/Beurre, Egg Yolk Extract/Extrait De Jaune D'oeuf, Albumen Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil, Honey Extract, Milk Protein Extract, Polysorbate 60, Triethanolamine, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Caprylyl Glycol, Peg-100 Stearate, Acrylates/c10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Cetearyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Fragrance 

Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil is an avocado oil - a source of oleic, palmitic and linoleic acid, Vitamin A, D, and Vitamin E. It's great for skin, hair and nails. Olea Europaea is an olive tree, the literal name means European Olive, and the name fits it well since it's a plant which you can find in the Mediterranean region of Europe, but there are other places where Olive can be found. Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil is a source of oleic acid (around 83%), linoleic acid and palmitic acid. It's a liquid oil with a long tradition. In skincare, it is used as antioxidant and emollient, it's a good moisturizer, but it can be a bit comedogenic. Still, it's an individual thing if an ingredient breaks you out or not - it can but it doesn't mean it will. 

The foam solution is amazing, especially during the summer this mousse is the best thing that can happen to your skin - it's making your skin hydrated, soft, and it doesn't make you stick to your clothes or sheets. It has one problem for me, at first I loved the scent, but lately, my sheets smell so intensive because of this mousse, that I had to change it and start using something different. Even Cerave SA which is not the best smelling product on this planet is less annoying if it comes to scent. It has a powder scent, but I got enough of it. Maybe some of you will like it after all this product is not the worst.

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Broadway Show Duet G01 Starlight City

What about glitter eyeliner and eyeshadow in one product? Yes, this product has two different applicators one-in-one. I'm a fan of glitter - you can never go wrong with it, but this product is a masterpiece. Sadly, I didn't write down the ingredients, and I couldn't show it on my skin, but the one I tried is like a pure glitter, two other versions are more like a shimmer eyeshadow than glitter eyeshadow. It's good to brighten or add an accent onto your eyelid.
