[REVIEW] Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask

Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask Review

Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask Review:

I love Korean face masks. Mainly because there is a huge variety. There are masks for every type of skin and every skin concern or problem one can imagine. This diversity is simply astonishing. By now I have tried my fair share of face masks and now I feel I can compare them without bias.

I got this Etude House mask when my skin was acting up with the hope of calming my skin down. That particular period was awful because my skin had begun breaking out like crazy and I had no idea why. I am not quite sure if it was because of the mask or because of the complex skincare routine but my face started to slowly get better.

[Review] Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Tea Tree Mask

Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Tea Tree Mask Review

Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Tea Tree Mask Review:

Tea tree is something I would definitely recommend to every pimply girl out there. I swear by tea tree sheet masks, and the Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask is still the best amongst all the others I’ve tried. While tea tree oil may be too harsh on the skin, tea tree sheet masks are a good way to deliver adequate moisture while soothing those vengeful pimples.

Etude House sheet masks were previously featuring the ‘I Need You’ series, which I thought looked quite amateur. I tried the green tea one and was disappointed. Thus I decided that my resources should be channelled to better formulas out there. Recently, I stumbled upon the ‘0.2mm Therapy Air’ series, which looks promising. I feel that the first line of marketing for sheet masks is usually their visual representation, and Etude House has finally gotten it right. I bought a few to try. Let’s see if this tea tree sheet mask will be able to avenge my skin and get rid of those annoying pimples.

Most of my life I have been blessed with good skin.  A pimple spot here and there do pops out, but their numbers have always been countable using one hand. So when the pimples started popping out more frequently and more numerous, I freaked out and started my zealous hunt for a cure.

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?

Acne is an ever-persistent problem that many (if not all) of us have. Whether it is hormonal, product-related, recurring or occasional, pimples are pesky issues that leave us feeling self-conscious. Worst of all, the war is not over when the breakout has calmed down—it leaves behind a battle scar in the form of hyperpigmentation that takes months to eliminate. Thus, we are always in constant search of a preventative measures or quick fixes for acne-related woes.

I picked up the Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol (or just A-Sol for short) with the same problem in mind. I’ve been struggling with breakouts for some years now, mostly due to stress and product reactions. Because of this, I’m constantly on the lookout for products to calm down acne and eliminate them in the fastest way possible.
