[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.

[REVIEW] The Saem Healing Tea Garden Rooibos Tea Cleansing Foam

The Saem Healing Tea Garden Rooibos Tea Cleansing Foam Review

The Saem Healing Tea Garden Rooibos Tea Cleansing Foam Review:

I was introduced to this product by a friend of mine who claimed that it ”cleared her acne”. Now, I’m a simple person, I hear ”cleared” and ”acne” in the same sentence, I purchased. In the end, it’s just a cleanser! It can’t go that bad. On top of that, it contains Rooibos which is my favorite kind of tea and is also well known for its anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antimutagenic qualities aka, it can actually reduce irritation and help with clearing up your skin. It is a very affordable cleanser so I bought it right away, without expecting it to have miraculous abilities but just to be a nice cleanser that gets the job done without breaking me out.

[REVIEW] New 2017 Dr.Jart+ Shake & Shot Shaking Rubber Luminous Shot Mask

Dr.Jart+ Shake & Shot Shaking Rubber Luminous Shot Mask Review

Dr.Jart+ Shake & Shot Shaking Rubber Luminous Shot Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Dr.Jart has been becoming bigger, and even though it is considered a relatively expensive brand most people swear by its quality and they still do have a bunch of affordable products. Their newest product is a modeling mask that comes in the cutest container shaped like a smoothie cup!

It comes in four flavors that have four different colors. Since I always choose hydration I decided to go for the one that seemed to have the least of that, just for a change! I got the Luminous shot (as you probably already read in the title) and so other than pretty skin I have no expectations to begin my review with!

[REVIEW] A’Pieu Madecassoside Fluid

A’Pieu Madecassoside Fluid Review

A’Pieu Madecassoside Fluid Review:

Interestingly enough, I first discovered this product through one of the lists Cosmeperks produced in the earlier stages of the website. Specific link here. As I’m sensitive to high concentrations of hyaluronic acid in skincare, I was looking specifically for toners which omitted the ingredient completely – just to see if it’d make any difference to my usually flushed skin. And as the product also contained centella and madecassoside which have been made famous for their skin soothing properties, I was even more intrigued.

[REVIEW] Disney PIXAR X The Saem Finding Nemo Collaboration Saemmul Oil Control Cushion in Shade Light Beige

Disney PIXAR X The Saem Finding Nemo Collaboration Saemmul Oil Control Cushion Review

Disney PIXAR X The Saem Finding Nemo Collaboration Saemmul Oil Control Cushion Review:

I don’t think I have to introduce the movie ”Finding Nemo” or its long awaited sequel, ”Finding Dory”. For me, it has been a personal favorite ever since I was a little kid so as soon as I found out that The Saem had collaborated with Disney to release this line I ordered this cushion and a couple more items. The truth is that I expected this cushion to be awful because I previously tried The Saem’s Eco Soul Essence Cushion and wasn’t particularly pleased. On top of that, I wanted to get the other design on the case (even though this one is great too), but the other shade is too dark for me. I was ready however, for any level of badness with this cushion since it had nemo on the cover. So far it sounds like I signed myself up for a donation to The Saem, let’s see how this cushion really is.

[REVIEW] Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel Review

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] Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Sebum Clear Pact Gudetama Lazy & Easy Edition

Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Sebum Clear Pact Gudetama Lazy & Easy Edition Review

Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Sebum Clear Pact Gudetama Lazy & Easy Edition Review:

Whenever I list stuff that I am good at, I sometimes consider how efficient I am at producing sebum. My T-zone is incredibly good if we talk about oil production, and then, it gets even better with humidity. Oil blotting paper has always been a staple, at least until I’ve discovered these oil blotting pacts. I have loved Innisfree No Sebum Powder so much but it was a little messy to use around. I was actually considering getting the compact one but then Gudetama happened so I ended up purchasing Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Sebum Clear Pact (Gudetama Lazy & Easy Edition).

[REVIEW] Etude House 98% Watermelon Soothing Gel

Etude House 98% Watermelon Soothing Gel Review

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] Tosowoong Enzyme Powder Wash

Tosowoong Enzyme Powder Wash Review

Tosowoong Enzyme Powder Wash Review:

A few months ago, every forum, every chat board or social network were buzzing about this Tosowoong Enzyme Powder Wash. After reading ingredients list, I said NO. “There’s no way in he…I would put SLS or denatured alcohol on my face. Heck NO! But after I had read some trusted reviews about really convenient pH of 5.5 of this cleanser, I decided to give it a try. After all, it’s the cost of less than 10$ so it wouldn’t move the Earth towards black hole if it didn’t work. So, here we go.
