[REVIEW] New 2017 Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask

Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask Review

Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I do love me some sleeping masks. They protect and nurture the skin during the night, and that is especially important in Korea during the winter, since the weather is cold and extremely dry. However, after getting used to them in the winter… I didn’t want to drop them in the summer! So I was really happy when I tried the Mamonde Calendula Sleeping Mask that is ideal for my skin during the summer. This mask, however, not only did I get to try it during the summer and during “this weather” (almost like Autumn), but also it’s a denser mask which also hydrates! So, after reading all the specs of this mask, can this be my year-round mask?

[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] Benton Aloe Bha Skin Toner

Benton Aloe Bha Skin Toner Review

Benton Aloe Bha Skin Toner Review:

I am a bit toners and FTEs junkie. I mean, yes, I am skin care junkie from head to toe, but there is something about these liquid wonders that make my wallet itch. I have all sorts of them: pH adjusting, hydrating, with or without snail mucin, all types of fermented everything… Well, you get the picture. This one in particular is with aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, snail secretion filtrate, and very interesting BHA – salicylic acid.

[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] A’pieu Waterful Bamboo Soothing Gel

A’pieu Waterful Bamboo Soothing Gel Review

A’pieu Waterful Bamboo Soothing Gel Review:

The world of soothing gels is fit for any taste and any skin type. I first thought that this would be just a copy of the famous Aloe gels, but I found out that each type of gel has its own abilities and utilities and I know that this one can match an Aloe gel in some. I also know that it is less good at some things, but better at others.

Since soothing gels tend to be an affordable product, they are a staple in most people’s beauty cabinets, and definitely a staple in mine. If you haven’t used a Bamboo soothing gel, I’m sure you will get to know some cool stuff about it if you keep reading.

[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] Scinic First Treatment Essence

Scinic First Treatment Essence Review

Scinic First Treatment Essence Review:

First treatment essences are an essential in every multi step Korean inspired skincare routine. Today the market is flooded with first treatment essence from different brands all promise to have more than ninety percent galactomyces ferment filtrate extract. I have the Missha first treatment essence and I have also tried the SK2 first treatment essence, so when I saw that Scinic has a first treatment essence for an unbeatable price I had to try it out.

[REVIEW] Scinic Honey All in One Ampoule

Scinic Honey All in One Ampoule Review

Scinic Honey All in One Ampoule Review:

Early on in my “skincare journey”, the Scinic Honey All in One Ampoule definitely piqued my interest when I first heard of it. As I was sorely missing a good hydrating/moisturising step in my quest of rebuilding my skincare regime, the claims of being an “all in one” product was too good to pass up. So despite the huge size of possible disappointment, I decided to just go for it. But with great power (claims), comes great responsibility (to deliver)…

[REVIEW] Dr.Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Brightening Solution Sheet Mask

Dr.Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Brightening Solution Sheet Mask Review

Dr.Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Brightening Solution Sheet Mask Review:

I recently had a beauty swap with a fellow beauty enthusiast over at Instagram although we didn’t do it in conventional manner of swapping. Shipping alone costs a lot so we decided that we get each other something off a website and send a “surprise gift” instead and it was so fun! One of the stuff she chose for me is the Dr.Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Brightening Solution and I was so happy about it.

1. It is Dr. Jart, I’ve been meaning to try products from the said brand but they aren’t locally available and 2. It is a brightening mask! ☺ Dr. Jart masks are on the pricier side but I hear really good things about the brand. Let’s see if it’s worth all the hype, shall we?
