Re:NK Cell to Cell Essence Review

Re:NK Cell to Cell Essence Review:

I once applied for a free treatment at the Re:NK “beauty center” and fell in love with it. From there I walked out with the most expensive beauty product I had ever owned, but on the bright side that made sure I used it to the very last drop. The product is “just an essence” but for the price and after the treatment I received it better be a damn good essence. I used it at first only as a night essence, but when I visited the beauty center they told me to use it in every skin care. And so I did, and this is my 1 million cell review.

[REVIEW] KLAIRS Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop

KLAIRS Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop Review

KLAIRS Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop Review:

As I am hitting this certain age milestone, I am more and more intrigued with the use of the peptides in cosmetics. So, peptides are partial chains of amino acids that create proteins. There are so many of peptides that are very popular as skin care ingredients with dramatic claims of stopping aging processes as the whole, to plump skin, to prevent and to erase wrinkles and so on and on. I am aware of the fact that the elixir of the everlasting youth is still yet to come to this world, but nevertheless, I am amused by the trial (and errors) of the cosmetics in my life. So, peptides are good. Ergo, why not?

Dear, Klairs is the brand of Wish Company Inc. Korea, that owns Wishtrend (web shop), Wishtrade (worldwide distribution of Korean skin care brands) , Wish TV (Youtube channel) and Wishtrend Glam (blog). It targets the market of those with sensitive, troubled, aging skin types. Exactly my kind of group.
This product, Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop is the first anti-aging product of Dear, Klairs.

[REVIEW] Benton Fermentation Eye Cream

Benton Fermentation Eye Cream Review

Benton Fermentation Eye Cream Review:

I first tried this product in samples. Benton is always very generous with the samples, so after receiving my new member sample kit, the 2 products they sent me to review, and the 2 other packages I received by purchasing them myself I had somewhere between 20 and 24 samples of this cream. I don’t know how much product is in each sample, but each sample is enough for me to use 4 times! So I tried it a lot, and then I purchased it.

I wasn’t going to purchase it, honestly, because I can just keep receiving the samples, but my previous eye cream finished and after the incident I had where my eyelashes fell out I didn’t want to risk something new. And let’s face it, Benton is natural, generally good, and is very affordable! So I bought two packs of this, and these are my thoughts after almost finishing the first one!

[REVIEW] New 2017 Missha All-around Safe Block Velvet Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA++++

Missha All-around Safe Block Velvet Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

Missha All-around Safe Block Velvet Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

Skipping sunscreen is probably the worst you could do to your face, or at least next to sleeping with your make up on. I have to say, with much regret, that I am one of those girls who don’t really wear sunscreen. I’ve always wanted to but I just couldn’t find the one just yet. Since I live in a country where it’s practically summer all year round, wearing sunscreen is a must! Unfortunately for me, I always end up buying something that’s a little thick, a little greasy and leaves white cast.

Needless to say, my experience with sunscreens aren’t that good so I end up depending on the spf provided by bb creams or cushion foundations, and you know they aren’t enough! Incorporating acids to my routine forced me to use a decent sunscreen. Missha’s series of sunscreen are highly praised in the AB community; apparently, you could never go wrong with this brand so I grabbed Missha All-around Safe Block Velvet Finish Sun Milk (SPF 50+ PA++++) without hesitation!

[REVIEW] Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream SPF38 PA+++

Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream SPF38 PA+++ Review

Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream SPF38 PA+++ Review:

I debated whether to write a review about this product or not. Lots of you have already read the reviews for this cream, and many of you have tried it, since Benton is a relatively big name in the AB community. But since I had more information on this sun cream (because at this point Benton didn’t release only this sun cream but also another, stronger one) I thought I should still review it. Note that this is a review for the Papaya-D sun cream, D stands for Daily. So, honestly the low SPF and PA didn’t really surprise me, and I purchased the product anyway.

[REVIEW] Albion Skin Conditioner Essential

Albion Skin Conditioner Essential Review

Albion Skin Conditioner Essential Review:

I must admit, I’m not as well versed in Japanese skincare as I am in Korean. I follow a Taiwanese Youtuber who swears by Albion products, so when I was in Taipei I went to an Albion counter and did some damage. It’s by no means a cheap product, at around $100USD/$126CAD for the 330ml bottle, but I justify it in my mind that it’s still cheaper than SK-II.

I love the service at department stores in Asia, they treat you like royalty even if you’re buying a piece of lint from them. Combine the good service plus the things I’ve heard about it, I decided to buy 2 bottles and a box of the sheet masks. They were having an event where when you buy the big bottle (330ml), you get a tester kit. The tester kit is very generous, with a bottle of the lotion, two 27ml bottles of the skin conditioner, and a nozzle spray so you can use it on the go.

[REVIEW] SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Review

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Review:

When talking about first treatment essence, the brand SK-II would definitely come to mind as it was one of the earlier skincare brands to carry FTE under its wings. SK-II is a luxury brand and there are a lot of glowing (pun intended) reviews about its Facial Treatment Essence (some even call it ‘Miracle Water’ or ‘Miracle Potion’), that claims to have more than 90% Pitera™. If you don’t already know, Pitera™ is SK-II’s signature natural bio-ingredient that is packed with vitamins, amino acids and minerals that will aid in transforming your skin to crystal clear, as well as boosting skin’s texture, radiance and firmness.

I first got this FTE from the SK-II Pitera™ Welcome Set, which also includes a mini size of SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream. It is a great value for money trial set for those who wants to get a taste of the SK-II world, but not quite yet ready to splurge on their full-sized products.
