[Review] Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Conditioner

Tsubaki Damage Care Conditioner Review

Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Conditioner Review:

Having delved into Asian skincare/cosmetics for more than a year now, it was inevitable that I’d try my hand at Asian haircare as well. And surely enough, as I found myself running out of my usual Western-brand conditioner, I decided to pick up a conditioner from a brand I’d been eyeing a few weeks prior as it seemed a safe choice coming from a relatively reputable Japanese company.

[Review] Innisfree Bija Trouble Cleansing Gel

Innisfree Bija Trouble Cleansing Gel Review

Innisfree Bija Trouble Cleansing Gel Review:

In my initial search online for low pH second cleansers, I found this particular product from Innisfree to be recommended quite a few times, especially for those with sensitive skin. With reviews of mentioning how gentle and non-irritating it was (despite containing salicylic acid!), I definitely had high hopes for it. Thus, after having it on my wishlist for awhile, I finally caved. So the question is: did it live up to my lofty expectations?

[Review] Innisfree Broccoli Clearing Toner

Innisfree Broccoli Clearing Toner Review

Innisfree Broccoli Clearing Toner Review:

I got this product first as a membership kit (I think over 1 year ago) and I ignored it, neglected it, didn’t even open it. Until one day I went to a store and actually read the package, saying that it specializes in sebum and pores. So I had a “a-ha” moment and decided to start using it! I have been using it ever since, which gives me a margin to make a proper review.

It’s part of the Superfood collection, which focuses on, well, superfoods, and this collection has products to tackle every skin worry. This is my third product from this line, simply because it’s affordable and the design is simple and beautiful!

Are you curious about this toner that looks exactly like water? I wonder if it smells like broccoli…

[Review] Etude House AC Clean Up Daily Cleansing Foam

Etude House AC Clean Up Daily Cleansing Foam Review

Etude House AC Clean Up Daily Cleansing Foam Review:

The cleansing part of everyone’s skincare is one of the most flexible ones. Chances are, all of us are more likely to repurchase a certain serum or essence than a cleanser. That’s why you get to try a large variety of cleansers throughout your life. What does all that mean?

The more products you try the more chances there are that one of them will break you out. This cleanser is here to change that as it is non-comedogenic. That means that your skin won’t react in a bad way to it! This cleanser also contains Salicylic Acid, which is a great exfoliator for acne skin, glycerin, that works great as a moisturizer against acne and betaine, an amino acid that gives hydration to the skin.

All that and a couple of other people that I saw raving about this product, led me to purchasing it.

[Review] Mediheal Aqua Chip Circle Point Mask Sheet

Mediheal Aqua Chip Circle Point Mask Sheet Review

Mediheal Aqua Chip Circle Point Mask Sheet was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When Cosmeperks contacted me and sent me a photo of the mask I honestly didn’t notice anything about it. It was not until I got in the store and grabbed it that I noticed it had circles, it had pressure points, I didn’t notice how special it was until I had it in my hand. And I admit, at the time I really had to control myself not to buy one of each from the same collection!

Please read the review because I promise you won’t see many masks with pressure points. Could it be your own Oriental medicine aesthetic clinic at home?

[Review] Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask

Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask Review

Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask Sheet Review:

Tea tree is an excellent natural antiseptic that also has powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that can treat most skin infections and diseases. This special oil can also soothe skin redness and even eczema and psoriasis including dermatitis. Troubled and congested skin will also benefit from tea tree as this oil can deeply cleanse pores and treat skin even the most sensitive types.

I have been a fan of Naruko’s Tea Tree line where I use their night gelly as spot treatment and clear lotion as a daily toner to keep spots and excess oil at bay especially during humid weather. So I was equally curious about Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask which is also a black active carbon mask that claims to soothe skin, control oils and treat spots and blemishes.
