[REVIEW] Missha Near Skin Phyto Azulen Cream

Missha Near Skin Phyto Azulen Cream Review

Missha Near Skin Phyto Azulen Cream Review:

I tested these products (this cream and it’s two sisters) in the store as soon as they came out and by that one touch I could tell right away they are all highly moisturizing creams. They also all have different focuses, and this one focuses in long term (day long) reducing of the skin temperature while being appropriate for sensitive and dry skin, or skin that needs special care.

But what is Near Skin? It’s one of the Missha collections, however it’s almost like a sub-brand of Missha since Missha’s name doesn’t even appear on the packagings of these products. Near Skin focuses on derma cosmetics, so if you would like to try Missha products to deal with specific skin troubles this is the collection you should be looking at.

[Review] Missha Super Aqua Oil Clear Gel Cream

Missha Super Aqua Oil Clear Gel Cream Review

Missha Super Aqua Oil Clear Gel Cream Review:

I first found out about this product through Missha’s email subscription. It just sounded like the perfect product for me due to its largest claim to be the go-to product for oily skin types. Finding the right cream for us oily-skinned people can be difficult. Find one that is too light and it will not moisturize at all; find one that is too heavy and it will only make your skin appear more oily/shiny. It can be hard to find something that has a perfect balance between hydration and moisturization without being too rich. So, the question is: just how good is this product in reality? Read on.

[Review] Etude House Pink Vital Water Eye Serum

Etude House Pink Vital Water Eye Serum Review

Etude House Pink Vital Water Eye Serum Review:

Cute stuff and free samples make me happy. Have you ever been in an Etude House store? Their store is always pink and cutesy and has a princess theme. I had been thinking about getting an eye cream for a while now because I have serious dark eye rings. No matter how much I sleep, my eye rings still look like a panda’s and thus I decided I should really do something about it before I turn into a full-fledged panda.

Etude House may not have the most awesome products but I like it because they tend to give out free samples such as toners and sheet masks (teehee). I decided to give their Pink Vital Water Eye Serum a try because it looked promising and because it comes in my favourite colour!

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

Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Lotion Review

Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Lotion Review:

Tea tree is a powerful, natural antiseptic with potent antibacterial properties that can reduce and heal acne and other skin irritations and inflammations. Naruko’s Tea Tree night gelly is my favorite spot treatment that instantly heals any emerging bumps or pimples plus, leaving my skin refreshed, soothed and calmer.

I was searching for a tea tree toner that wouldn’t dry out my skin so I went ahead and tried Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Lotion which acts like a very light emulsion or a thick, hydrating toner with an addicting herbal scent.

[Review] Milky Dress The White Platinum Cream | Anti-wrinkle & Whitening

Milky Dress The White Platinum Cream Review

Milky Dress The White Platinum Cream Review:

For my whole life, I’ve been dealing with discoloration on my face. Probably because I didn’t care about my face the least bit as a kid and my skin is pretty sensitive. Ever since 4 years ago that I started getting acne issues, it has gotten worse and easily noticeable. There’s a wide variety of treatments to do and things to put on your face to treat it or cover it, since it’s quite a common problem within the population. I chose to try whitening products in the past without observing any huge difference.

I did not give up. I once was watching a drama on television when a telemarketing commercial about this product came up. In the commercial, a woman put some of this cream on her arm and it completely changed color immediately! I was so amazed, I knew I had to look it up. With a quick research, I found out that it contains ground cherry fruit extract, which prevents skin dullness that is caused by sun exposure and it reduces melanin color buildup( aka what makes your skin darker). I thought this might work so I decided to buy it and see how it goes!

Cosrx Oil Free Ultra-moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap Review

Cosrx Oil Free Ultra-moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap Review:

COSRX as already globally well known brand with strong appearance on social network media lives up to their promise to deliver results with as they claim:

“Maximized effect, Minimized skin trouble
Maximized cost of ingredient, Minimized cost of container
Maximized product capacity, Minimized price
Maximized communication with customers, Minimized promotion
Maximized list of products, Minimized distribution structure.”

(Source: official COSRX web site, cosrx.kr)

More or less, their philosophy sublimed in these five lines. I always have fun navigating through their product list as it always results in purchasing something new to my cosme stash. This time it’s all about Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion (with birch sap). My skin felt thirsty at the time.

Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream Review

Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream Review:

What is Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream? –is my exact thought as I was getting deluxe samples from Sulwhasoo. Honestly, I don’t intend getting this product had it not been included in Sulwhasoo mask set that I am buying. Apparently, it is a massage cream that helps revitalize and harmonize skin to restore vibrancy and deliver nutrition to tired skin. Do I even need this? I fear not. But let’s see if my experience with Sulwhasoo Benecircle Massage Cream could change my mind.  ☺

[Review] Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream

Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream Review

Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream Review:

Having sensitive skin, yet dry in certain areas made me difficult to find a suitable cream. Recently I discovered Pyunkang Yul, a skincare brand that originated from Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic. I must admit that I was first interested in this product for its short list of ingredients because I believe that less is more.

I live in a humid country, where I get sweat easily, thus it is a hustle to use a cream especially during daytime.

[Review] IOPE Bio Eye Cream Youth Complete

IOPE Bio Eye Cream Youth Complete Review

IOPE Bio Eye Cream Youth Complete Review:

I got this eye cream after trying a few samples for the length of a week. At the time my eyelashes had fallen out because of another eye cream (I’ll give more details below) and I had eyelash gaps, it was really unattractive but mainly it made me sad. So, I got my hands on a few samples of this and decided to try it because being Iope there is always some quality you expect, as a higher end brand. After the samples I got the cream and this is what happened.
