[Review] Naruko NRK Collagen Booster Firming Mask

Naruko NRK Collagen Booster Firming Mask Review

Naruko NRK Collagen Booster Firming Mask Review:

I’ve only heard about Naruko a few months ago, but it seems to be quite a popular brand and can be found at any local Watsons or Guardians outlet in Singapore and Malaysia. As previously mentioned, I am a huge fan of the Taiwanese sheet mask brand My Beauty Diary. It seems like Naruko originates from Taiwan as well and I wanted to see how it would fare as compared to MBD. Not to mention, that packaging is so adorable and pretty! Hence, I bought a box of Naruko’s collagen masks as well as other loose flavours such as tea tree, rose and narcissus.

Collagen is essential for healthy and elastic skin. It can also minimise scars and improve the skin tone. Let’s check out how this one fared

[Review] From Nature Age Instense Treatment Essence

From Nature Age Instense Treatment Essence Review

From Nature Age Instense Treatment Essence Review:

Talking about first essences and fermented cosmetics in Asian market there are so many great and less great products that one possibly could write a scholar essay upon that subject.

Well, talking about great first essences this one is certainly the first on my list of favourites of all times: From Nature Age Intense Treatment Essence. My obsession with this product originated in fact that this was my first first essence ever bought. At first, when it finally came to me and I unboxed it, it just stood there in my skin care cabinet because I was so afraid of the reaction of my skin to fermented product yet I was so eager to try it. I postponed it so long and then I took the leap of faith. Boy, oh boy! Did I love it! I do own other first essences in my stash, but this one is somehow first to grab in routine.

From Nature is a Korean brand well positioned on “green brand” part of the market. Not so overhyped in the West, but nevertheless great and effective. Their efromnature website is nicely organized and seems informative, but unfortunately only in Korean language.

[Review] Catrin Natural 100 Mineral Sunkill RX SPF46 PA+++ Puff Type

Catrin Natural 100 Mineral Sunkill RX SPF46 PA+++ Puff Type Review

Catrin Natural 100 Mineral Sunkill RX SPF46 PA+++ Puff Type Review:

I have a feeling that the search of the Holy Grail is easier than that of a good sunscreen. Once I got it through my thick head how important sunscreen really is my quest begun. Finding one that can go over makeup proved to be especially difficult. After all, most sunscreens are designed to be worn under makeup. Or maybe it is my skin, it just doesn’t do well with a lot of products on it. Well after I came to that conclusion I figured that a powder type sunscreen was the way to go and after some reviews and 2-3 weeks shipping time here we are.

[Review] Naruko Narcissus DNA Repairing Mask

Naruko Narcissus DNA Repairing Mask Review

Naruko Narcissus DNA Repairing Mask Review:

I have to be honest. Ever since becoming a mother, I hardly include sheet masks into my skincare routine. Because lets face it, having 20 minutes to just chill back and enjoy sheet masking is quite a rare luxury when you have small kids demanding for your attention 24/7.

But I do keep a small stash of sheet masks for those rare moments when I actually do have time to use them, and one of the masks that I have in the stash is my all time favourite Naruko Narcissus Repairing Mask.

[Review] L’Herboflore Marine Collagen Resilience Lift Mask

L’Herboflore Marine Collagen Resilience Lift Mask Sheet Review

L’Herboflore Marine Collagen Resilience Lift Mask Review:

Collagen remains a popular ingredient amongst supplements and cosmetic products that promises youthful glow despite the abundance of this protein in human body. While there’s plenty of resource to choose from, fish tops the list for it offers the best absorption. Fish collagen or sometimes referred to as marine collagen is known for its ability in maintaining the strength and elasticity of the skin thus making it a stellar anti-aging ingredient. I’ve always been curious about collagen; in fact, I have tried taking Meiji Collagen Powder before but it tasted nasty so I’ll probably stick with collagen-containing product. So it goes without saying that I have to try a collagen mask from one of my favorite brand –L’ Herboflore.

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ Review

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ Review:

I’ve used up two tubes of the Missha Essence Sun when I ran out, only to find that they came out with more products within their sunscreen line. So being the curious cat that I am I bought the Missha Essence Sun Milk on a whim. I love the original Essence Sun so I know it’s going to be just as good if not more.

Missha recently changed the packaging of their old sunscreens and added more, so now there are a total of 5 different kinds of sunscreens for everybody out there. There is the Essence Sun SPF 45+ / PA+++, Aqua Sun Gel SPF 50+ / PA++++, Soft Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ / PA+++, Waterproof Sun Milk SPF 50+ / PA++++, and finally the star of this review: Essence Sun Milk.

Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

I have never really liked sunscreen before but since my dermatologist made it perfectly clear it’s a must, I embarked on my quest to find the perfect sunscreen. I have tried a few dozen Western ones and they were all either too greasy, or too white, or too patchy, or too cakey. So after all the good things I have heard and read about Korean sunscreens I decided to give them a shot. After a lot of research, one of the first I ordered was Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel and I am very happy I did.

[Review] Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask Pack

Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask Pack Review

Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask Pack Review:

I like sheet masks. Using them is fun and if it’s a really good mask the result often calls for ‘WOW effect’. Although that effect is temporary, it’s always fun looking at your face in the mirror after taking off the sheet of your face and touching that ‘chok chok’ skin of yours. Isn’t it?

Or maybe I am just a little bit goofy. Nope! Still loving my sheet masks.

So this one in particular caught my attention. This is bio-cellulose mask dipped in mix of Nobel prize winning ingredient, precious metal, amino acids and herbs. Claims that mention skin barrier recovery, collagen boosting, nourishing skin, increasing skin elasticity. All the magic words are there. What else than to quickly click “Buy now”.  Also doesn’t hurt that the brand itself has the reputation of very effective and with wide array of products of proven results.

Son Reve Daily Sun Protection SPF 43 PA+++ Review:

I was lucky enough to receive a lucky box with this item in it! Well, it’s a relatively new product, it’s from a brand that I absolutely love, and it’s season appropriate! So imagine how happy I was. But it came with a surprise, it wasn’t a “normal” sun cream – I guess that’s why they don’t call it a sun cream at all! If you don’t know this brand you should read this to be introduced to it, and if you know of the brand… well, then you probably already want to read this!
