[REVIEW] Graymelin Propolis 80 Energy Ampoule

[REVIEW] Graymelin Propolis 80 Energy Ampoule

Graymelin Propolis 80 Energy Ampoule Review:

One of those fashionable ingredients with enough hype to cope with is definitely propolis. Beeswax, bee saliva, and herbal sap mixed by bees to build and repair home of theirs, hives. Not so romantic to analyse it like that so I’ll skip to skin care use of it. Skin soothing, with anti-oxidative power ingredient. Nothing super powerful, but very alluring mixed in hanbang manner.

I already mentioned Korean niche brand Graymelin as the next big thing. Honestly, I was firstly lurking other popular propolis ampoules, but this one definitely prevailed as the ingredients list is way closer to my liking than any other.

[REVIEW] Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel

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] Scinic Honey All in One Ampoule

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] Papa Recipe Bombee Black Honey Mask Sheet

[Review] Papa Recipe Bombee Black Honey Mask Sheet

Papa Recipe Bombee Black Honey Mask Sheet Review:

I got myself couple of Papa Recipe masks, one of which is the Papa Recipe Bombee Black Honey Mask. Now that I think about it, I don’t think I have used any Korean black mask in the past. While my experience with black masks are mostly good, my range is limited to Taiwanese and Japanese brands so I guess it’s high time to try one from Korean brand. I’ve previously used Bombee Rose Gold Honey Mask and it definitely set the standards high for Papa Recipe. The question is will this variant be able to meet the bar?

[Review] Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Review:

Acne is an ever-persistent problem that many (if not all) of us have. Whether it is hormonal, product-related, recurring or occasional, pimples are pesky issues that leave us feeling self-conscious. Worst of all, the war is not over when the breakout has calmed down—it leaves behind a battle scar in the form of hyperpigmentation that takes months to eliminate. Thus, we are always in constant search of a preventative measures or quick fixes for acne-related woes.

I picked up the Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol (or just A-Sol for short) with the same problem in mind. I’ve been struggling with breakouts for some years now, mostly due to stress and product reactions. Because of this, I’m constantly on the lookout for products to calm down acne and eliminate them in the fastest way possible. I learned about the A-Sol upon research and found that is has been mightily raved about by skincare aficionados. I immediately put it on my “To buy” list because of its promising ingredient list, ready availability, cheap price and established brand.

I’m From Honey Mask | Review

I’m From Honey Mask | Review

I first discovered this I’m From Honey Mask after an epically lazy day that consisted of eating and binge watching YouTube beauty reviews. I came across Gothamista’s YouTube Channel and saw she had posted a video called “Honey Masks Smack Down. Farmacy Honey Potion and I’m From Honey Mask.”

Well, I gravitate towards honey in my skincare products like Winnie the Pooh. I also own and LOVE the Farmacy Honey Potion mask but my supply of it was dwindling so I was on the hunt for something more affordable but just as effective. “I’m From” is a Korean skincare brand that I was already familiar with because I am a slave to their honey sheet masks. According to Wishtrend’s website, the “I’m From Honey Mask” uses almost 40% pure honey from Mount Jiri in South Korea.
