[REVIEW] ARITAUM Aloe No Wash Cleansing Water

ARITAUM Aloe No Wash Cleansing Water Review:

Never had any thoughts of using any cleansing water products before, although I’d heard so much about the importance of double-cleansing. Especially for Korean people, whose skincare routines are the one that I adopt everyday. Besides, I’ve already using a konjac sponge, so I think my face had been clean enough. In other words, the main reason why I decided to try a cleansing water product is because of the curiousity and I just wanna try something new. Turns out my decision was totally right!

[REVIEW] Graymelin Pure 100% Beta-Glucan

[REVIEW] Graymelin Pure 100% Beta-Glucan

Graymelin Pure 100% Beta-glucan Review:

For all of you my fellow rosaceans, you know how the fight is tough and constant. We are in everlasting quest for some immuno-boosters and any kind of skin shields. Thus, when someone offers you pure beta-glucan for your skin, you will not pass on it, I am sure. So neither did I.

Graymelin is Korean indie skin care brand praised by many popular bloggers. Graymelin call themselves Skin’s Beauty Natural Cosmetics Brand and they tend to deliver. Apothecary chic as someone named them, or “the next big thing”. This product is around for at least couple of years, but always fresh and intriguing to write about.

[REVIEW] Albion Skin Conditioner Essential

[REVIEW] Albion Skin Conditioner Essential

Albion Skin Conditioner Essential Review:

I must admit, I’m not as well versed in Japanese skincare as I am in Korean. I follow a Taiwanese Youtuber who swears by Albion products, so when I was in Taipei I went to an Albion counter and did some damage. It’s by no means a cheap product, at around $100USD/$126CAD for the 330ml bottle, but I justify it in my mind that it’s still cheaper than SK-II.

I love the service at department stores in Asia, they treat you like royalty even if you’re buying a piece of lint from them. Combine the good service plus the things I’ve heard about it, I decided to buy 2 bottles and a box of the sheet masks. They were having an event where when you buy the big bottle (330ml), you get a tester kit. The tester kit is very generous, with a bottle of the lotion, two 27ml bottles of the skin conditioner, and a nozzle spray so you can use it on the go.

[REVIEW] SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

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.

Hada Labo Gokujyun Cleansing Oil Review:

Boasting a short ingredients list and a hefty amount of product at a relatively affordable price, I was quite intrigued with this cleansing oil. So when there was a sale, I immediately decided to pick it up as I generally have had no issues with olive oil-based first cleansers in the past. So, how did it fare?

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] New 2017 Missha Homemade Moisturizing Mungbean Modeling Mask

[REVIEW] New 2017 Missha Homemade Moisturizing Mungbean Modeling Mask

Missha Homemade Moisturizing Mungbean Modeling Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I want to say here in this section that if you have seen this product on Missha’s webpage you might have been deceived by the photo into thinking the size of this mask’s pack was bigger! I know I was! However I hope my photo was a little more enlightening than theirs. More on this later.

This mask is a jelly-type modeling mask that comes in three flavors, with three completely different effects. Of course being summer I chose the moisturizing mask (maybe even not in summer I would choose it). The gel part of this mask (or essence) is common in all three flavors, then the powder is the different agent, which I found cute and practical. I know modeling masks are very popular among foreigners, but in Korea they are actually just starting to kick off, and it’s an expected-to-be trend for the end of this season. I urge you to find out how Korean products are “discovering” these masks!
