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.

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] 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.

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.

[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?

[REVIEW] My Beauty Diary Alps Edelweiss Ultra Repairing Mask

My Beauty Diary Alps Edelweiss Ultra Repairing Mask Review

My Beauty Diary Alps Edelweiss Ultra Repairing Mask Review:

I am such an avid fan of My Beauty Diary. No words can describe how much I adore this brand. I was out in the sweltering heat for the entire day in sunny Singapore and was afraid of the damage it would do to my skin. Although I applied sunblock (SPF50+ PA+++), I did not want to take any chances. I decided to use this mask to hopefully neutralise the damage to my sun-soaked skin.

I got this in a box of 8 at my local Guardian because I was attracted to its romantic packaging and its pastel purple tones. It looks so sweet and when it comes to sheet masks, the more the merrier!

[REVIEW] April Skin Mummy Mud Mask

April Skin Mummy Mud Mask Review

April Skin Mummy Mud Mask Review:

If you’re gaga over cushions, it would be impossible not get acquainted with April Skin; this brand is very popular for their snow fixing cushions with outstanding coverage. I was curious about their overly hyped cushion but when I was able to swatch it, I thought, “Uh-oh, too much coverage, my skin won’t be able to breathe” so I didn’t buy it. But I bought the April Skin Mummy Mud Mask just because I wanted to experience the brand. After all, my Innisfree mud mask’s effects on my skin seem to have reached its saturation point so I’m on the lookout for a good substitute!
