[REVIEW] J.ONE Jelly Pack

[REVIEW] J.ONE Jelly Pack

J.one Jelly Pack Review:

I kept seeing this J.one jelly pack coming up in K-beauty reviews, but it never quite caught my attention sufficiently to read the reviews because of its very plain packaging. Neither do the name of “jelly pack” help because I have no idea what it is for.

Then I saw it on the highly popular Korean beauty show “Get it Beauty”. The J.one jelly pack is developed by a popular Korean actress Ha Ji-won, to meet the needs of busy on-the-good women like her. I was enticed by its multi-functions claim of being hydrating, pore-smoothing and especially the tagline used by Ha Ji-won is that it is a “corset for your face” ie. firming and lifting. In addition, the jelly pack is free of ingredients that are generally frowned upon – parabens, mineral oils, sulfates and phthalates. Doesn’t that sounds just like what I need for my complicated skin type?

[REVIEW] Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel Review:

As being a Korean skincare aficionado, and having skin this handful, looking up Benton’s window is pretty much inevitable. “It’s only logical” as would Spock say. Also browsing their website and seeing description of a product like this:

ALOE PROPOLIS SOOTHING GEL is for all types of skin including sensitive and troubled skin. The product contains Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, rich in polysaccharides and Propolis Extract, well known for its soothing properties. This soothing gel prevents skin damage, leaving skin refreshed and hydrated.   

Aaaand I was sold.

[REVIEW] A’pieu Waterful Bamboo Soothing Gel

A’pieu Waterful Bamboo Soothing Gel Review:

The world of soothing gels is fit for any taste and any skin type. I first thought that this would be just a copy of the famous Aloe gels, but I found out that each type of gel has its own abilities and utilities and I know that this one can match an Aloe gel in some. I also know that it is less good at some things, but better at others.

Since soothing gels tend to be an affordable product, they are a staple in most people’s beauty cabinets, and definitely a staple in mine. If you haven’t used a Bamboo soothing gel, I’m sure you will get to know some cool stuff about it if you keep reading.

[REVIEW] Etude House 98% Watermelon Soothing Gel

[REVIEW] Etude House 98% Watermelon Soothing Gel

Etude House 98% Watermelon Soothing Gel Review:

As a person who lives in tropical country, heated skin is usually being a terrible problem especially in summer. If you are Korean skincare lovers, you probably know that aloe vera soothing gel is very popular since last year and I thought that soothing gel is the best product to solve heated skin problem. But for my oily-combination skin, I felt that most of aloe vera soothing gel products were too moist, some of them even made my skin feel sticky and greasy especially on my T-zone. So I browsed through online shops and found this product. It is soothing gel type too but made from different main ingredient. Instead of aloe extract, it is made from watermelon extract. Yes, I am talking about 98% Watermelon Soothing Gel from Etude House!

I’ve ever read that watermelon is a great ingredient for acne prone skin. The extract of watermelon helps to heal acnes, smooth the skin texture and give a fresh skin without feeling greasy since it has powerful antioxidant rich in Vitamin A & C and Lycopene which are good to regenerate skin too.

Etude claimed that this soothing gel is made with 98% watermelon extract from Yangpyeong. I don’t know where Yangpyeong is. Usually I notice that most of Korean skincare made with natural ingredients from Jeju island, LOL. However, I have a high expectation with this product. Now let’s check how 98% Watermelon Soothing Gel works on my skin!

[Review] The Saem Fresh Bamboo Soothing Gel 99%

The Saem Fresh Bamboo Soothing Gel 99% Review:

After trying The Saem’s 99% Fresh Jeju Aloe Soothing Gel, I saw this product and wanted to give it a try. After all, I do love a good soothing product because I experience acne rather often. Ultimately, seeing that it had “natural salicylic acid” is what got me interested in this product (plus, it was cheap considering the large amount of product available).

[Review] The Saem 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Soothing Gel

The Saem 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Soothing Gel Review:

After spending hours online in search of a good aloe product, I settled on this one because of its alleged “99% aloe” ingredient as opposed to the more often 95% or even 92% aloe products I have seen on the market. I just wanted something that was as much aloe-based as I could get because my skin was irritated, dry, and sensitive at the time that I needed it.

[Review] I’m From Vitamin Tree Water Gel

I’m From Vitamin Tree Water Gel Review:

Having dry skin, I have always used a moisturizer diligently. But I have yet to find one that I could crown as my Holy Grail moisturizer though I have tried quite a number from Western to Asian brands, as well as from high-end to drug store brands. Therefore I am constantly on the hunt.

I live in a country that is hot and humid pretty much all year around, so I prefer to use a gel moisturizer during the day and a cream moisturizer at night. I was on the search for a day moisturizer when I decided to give I’m From Vitamin Tree Water Gel a shot.

[Review] Nature Republic Cactus 92% Soothing Gel

Nature Republic Cactus 92% Soothing Gel Review:

As you might have noticed if you read my reviews, I am an Aloe Gel enthusiast. So when the ladies here at Cosmeperks told me a cactus gel could be more hydrating I jumped right on it! It is more expensive than aloe, but hydration is important for aging skin, and for combination or oily skin. And I have both of them.

Not to mention the novelty of having cactus on your skin, who doesn’t want to try that?

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Review:

I have been using Aloe Vera gels for many years now, and for many purposes. I find Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel works best for me for a decent price here in the world of Korean Beauty. There are ones with higher percentage, good for other stuff, but the ones between 90 and 95% I find work the best for me. And since Nature Republic is quite affordable, this gel has been a good option for the past few months. Now that the warm weather is arriving to Korea, I decided to review this and let you know all of the good things that come with this gel!
