[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?

Aritaum Baby Face Ampoule Collagen Review:

The best thing about promotions is when you buy something not really knowing what to expect and it turns out to be a surprise. I think most people who do this end up having bad surprises, but the good ones make it worth it. This one was definitely a good surprise!

Yes, sure it only lasts for 6 days but 1) that’s perfect for vacation 2) usually ampoules are meant to be used one (however much the amount of the package is) all at once as a one round of treatment and that’s how I used this one! One in the morning, one at night, without any mistake! I think that, for such a short treatment the results were quite good!

The Face Shop x MARVEL Anti-Darkening Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ | V203 Natural Beige Review:

I came across this compact while shopping the K-Beauty section of an online Asian fashion and beauty site. Because the lid of the cushion was themed to Captain America’s shield, I thought it was clever and a fun design. Originally I purchased it on the site I was perusing but they were unable to fulfill my order, resulting in a long search to locate an online retailer who still stocked the cushion for a fair price. Eventually I located one on a US site and bought it right away.

[REVIEW] Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion | #23 Natural Beige

[REVIEW] Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion | #23 Natural Beige

Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Lately COSRX is being very much popular and most raved in Korean beauty products. Personally, their acne treatment products have won my heart since they worked well and effectively on my blemished skin. And also it’s like that COSRX was the first brand which brought me to the Centella Asiatica Extract hype. You know, this ingredient is very good for acne prone skin as its benefits to care inflammation and soothes skin.

Getting more and more popular, and like they know that skincare is not enough, COSRX is coming back with their new product. Now it’s time for their makeup line. It is COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion. This cushion was only available on Style Korean at first, but then it was launched in Korea about weeks ago (I think it should be the first week of this month, cmiiw). And finally I got my baby after waiting more than a week due to accidentally shipping issue.

I was really attracted with the claims this cushion not only works as makeup with its great coverage but also skincare with effective formula for acne prone skin. It contains trendy ingredients like Centella Asiatica Extract, tea tree oil and niacinamide, and also SPF 47 UVB/UVA sunscreen. These things are enough to make my acne prone skin hungry. So, let’s feed my skin and see the result of COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion. Ah, by the way, I got mine in shade #23 – Natural Beige.

[REVIEW] Femmue The Botanist Chamomile Mask – Calming/Hydrating

[REVIEW] Femmue The Botanist Chamomile Mask – Calming/Hydrating

Femmue The Botanist Chamomile Mask Calming/Hydrating Review:

I have loved flower scented products for as long as I can remember. I think it’s because I always had pot pourri in my bedroom when I was little. Or maybe I had it because I liked the flowers? Regardless, of course in skin care I favor flower scents!

And Femmue is a flower based brand that has surprised me a lot. As I see them growing in popularity, especially their mask sheets, I thought I should review one of the masks I keep reaching out for.

The ingredient list is short, the brand is a personal favorite, and they do write in all their products “We put a love here” so I am hoping to feel their love each time I open something new.

[REVIEW] Missha Signature Essence Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ | #21 Light Beige

Missha Signature Essence Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ | #21 Light Beige Review:

Before cushion foundation, I was crazy about blemish balms or simply, bb creams. They provide decent coverage without that suffocating feeling on skin! I have tried a lot then but I always come back to Missha’s M Perfect Cover BB Cream, it was a little gray on me but it was one of the best back then!

Instinctively, I have to get Missha cushion foundations out in the market. I already own the M Magic one, and it’s a really good product. In fact, I have repurchased it thrice already. But when I found about their Missha Signature Essence Cushion I just have to try it!

Etude House Big Cover Concealer Kit Review:

My eyes had been a saving grace to my very problematic skin and I hardly paid attention to eye products. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Fine lines and dark circles have announced their presence in recent years. So while I am still trying to find a competent skincare product for these, my best bet for now would be on concealer.
But just as with foundation, there is always the challenge of finding the correct shade to provide the needed coverage. I was therefore delighted when I came across the Etude House Big Cover Concealer Kit, thinking it should save me the hassle of having to search for the right one. So let’s see if I have enjoyed playing make-up with this Concealer Kit.

[REVIEW] NEW 2017 Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Green Tea

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Green Tea Review:

So, I didn’t even know they had done a new version of this mask until I saw the review of the Cucumber one here on CP! And the next time I went to the store I grabbed the remake of one of my favorites – the green tea mask!

Other than the design being completely different, the mask sheet itself is different, and I wondered if the essences were also different – and just how different were they. They are a little more expensive than the previous version (boooo!) but supposedly they are also better!
