[REVIEW] A’pieu Wonder Tension Pact Madecassoside SPF30 PA++ | Shade 23

A’pieu Wonder Tension Pact Madecassoside SPF30 PA++ | Shade 23 Review:

A’pieu is a Korean cosmetic brand that is affordable but has amazing products. I follow a few Korean youtubers and a while back they all seemed to rave about the wonder tension pact from A’pieu, but I never had the urge to try it because I still had some cushions I was testing out.

I’ve gone through multiple tubes of A’pieu’s moisture concealer so when I visited Seoul I decided to test out quite a collection of their products ranging from makeup to skincare and see if I can find more gems. This review will be dedicated to their Wonder Tension Pact Madecassoside. Centella extract has been all the rage in Korean skincare, it’s almost like when snail extract first became popular- every brand has a range.

[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] New 2017 MISSHA All-around Safe Block Fresh Sun Stick SPF50+ PA+++

[REVIEW] New 2017 MISSHA All-around Safe Block Fresh Sun Stick SPF50+ PA+++

MISSHA All-around Safe Block Fresh Sun Stick SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

Have you ever wished applying and re-applying sunscreen would be (even) simpler? Our fingers are one if not the dirtiest place on our body. With most sunblocks, we have to use our fingers to apply the product on our face. That usually isn’t as big of a problem but what if you’ve been outside of your house for 3 hours already, you have used the bus, your phone, multiple door handles etc..?

The more things you touch, the more germs and dirt your hands have. That means, the more chances you have to get a new pimple surprise on your beautiful face. There are couple of solutions for that, but I don’t want to be anxious all the time about finding a place to wash my hands, use antiseptic AND redo my makeup. And then I found this sun stick. It covers my needs of (kind of) hygienic sun protection so I thought I’d give it a try.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Cleansing Foam Review:

One of the luxury Asian beauty brands that have been on my radar for quite some time now is none other than the famous Sulwhasoo. There are a few products that I am interested to try, but before I splurge on the full size I decided to get some trial sizes first. And I started with the Snowise EX Cleansing Foam.

[REVIEW] Skinfood Pore Control Fresh Apple Cream

Skinfood Pore control Fresh Apple Cream Review:

I got this cream a few months back, what happened was I was desperate to get rid of my sebum, and my pores were crazily enlarged. But my skin is combination and I wouldn’t just jump like crazy to some random cream, since risking dry skin is not something I would want (I had it while I was a teen and had acne and oil everywhere, my face was frying potatoes and snowing at the same time). So I nonchalantly walked into the store and told the lady “I’m looking for something that will help me with my sebum and pores, but that will keep my skin moist throughout the day” and I got two products! This was one of them.

[REVIEW] G9SKIN Grapefruit Vita Peeling Pad

[REVIEW] G9SKIN Grapefruit Vita Peeling Pad

G9SKIN Grapefruit Vita Peeling Pad Review:

Peeling pad has been a trend since early 2017 among skincare brands. Most of the products are claiming that it is a convenient way to save up time as it works as a cleansing, toner and peeling pad at the same time. One of the brand that joining the trend is G9 Skin. This brand is a sister brand of Berrisom that is started around 2016.

This brand pursuing a concept of anti-city pollution skincare where their products contain extracts of 9 good ingredients that will improve skin health which are lotus, ivy, pine sprout, eucalyptus, oregano leaf, linseed, hibiscus petal, chia seed, and green tea. Wow! I believe you come across a product which contain one of the ingredients I mentioned above at least once, right?

As a skin care enthusiast, I always love to try different brands. So, this is my first time using G9 Skin product. I heard several of their products being reviewed and mentioned by beauty bloggers such as the whitening milk cream. But then, this peeling pad appeal to me the most. So let’s jump to review the product!

[REVIEW] CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42 PA+++

CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42 PA+++ Review:

Skincare regime is a complex thing, I would say. I am a beauty junkie and like checking out the many products and purposes. Even I occasionally get a headache from scouring through them.  So for the minimalists out there who prefer a less cluttered life, my (non-representative) suggestion is to have at least the basics; cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen.

Admittedly, sunscreen would not have been on my list years back.  I became aware of sunscreen only in my early 30s (do I hear some gasps of shock?)! I periodically made purchases of sunscreen, exploring both drugstore and luxury brands.  But I quickly moved from one brand to another because of either the sticky feeling, the whitecast or the breakouts they caused. I was on the verge of giving up, but pigmentations start to show up more obviously on my skin and I decided it is time I take sun protection seriously. Better late than never.
