[REVIEW] Mizon Black Snail All in One Cream

Mizon Black Snail All in One Cream Review

Mizon Black Snail All in One Cream Review:

This is another cream I got at the beginning of summer. I needed a night cream which would help me target my skin troubles. Namely, problem skin, acne, acne marks, blemishes and so on. I was conflicted between this Black snail one and the regular All in One Snail Repair Cream, but in the end, I decided on this because I thought it would be more suitable for my skin troubles and needs.

[REVIEW] Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask

Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask Review

Femmue Flower Infused Fine Mask Review:

On my visit to the Femmue show room I purchased a few things. I mean, natural ingredients, flowers, no animal testing – it all sounds attractive just by writing it, imagine when I tested it on the store. So I walked out with it! But I paid of course.

Anyway, this mask I was told works as a wash off mask, but also as a light sleeping mask. Of course I was intrigued. Do you remember when I wrote that you can also use the Mamonde Calendula sleeping mask as a wash off mask? This mask was actually the inspiration for me trying that! So, I decided to use it many many days in a row and in many many different ways, and I think you should read this. If not for the mask then for the new stuff you might find out!

[Review] SEP Lipstick X Confused Red

SEP Lipstick X Confused Red Review

SEP Lipstick X Confused Red Review:

I am a sucker for makeup, and lipsticks always get the best of me. Also, I like a lot of lesser known brands, and I like being the first to know them and review them when they’re good. I also like spreading the news when they’re bad, but that’s a different case. This lipstick is from a relatively new collection, and it’s a thing they call semi moisture, it’s something between semi matte and moisture. Which got me intrigued of course! I have used this lipstick a few times and I am prepared to spread the news! Is that a good news or bad news though?

[Review] Nature Republic Rose Mousse Cleanser

Nature Republic Rose Mousse Cleanser Review

Nature Republic Rose Mousse Cleanser Review:

Of course I was attracted to this product from the start. Flower scent, mousse (sensitive skin here), peculiar and different product… And it’s a shameless copy of the Evita rose cleanser when it comes to design, but when it comes to making the shape of a rose there are actually many others. And, also of course, even though I love J-beauty (and all others), K-beauty is the one in my heart. And even though those other brands are relatively cheap (I’m sure online they end up being the same price as this one) since I’m in Korea this one is fairly cheaper for me!

With all honesty, I applied for at least 2 lucky draws and 1 contest for this foam, and I didn’t win. Luckily me not winning coincided with the end of a short no-buy I did so guess who got her hands on one!

[Review] New 2017 Laneige Fresh Calming Morning Mask

Laneige Fresh Calming Morning Mask Review

Laneige Fresh Calming Morning Mask Review:

I purchased this product as soon as it came out due to, first, being a morning mask! How unusual is that! And then also as important, it focuses on combination skin, even though all skin types can use it. And truth be told, I didn’t pay much attention to the pictures at the time and the mask type surprised me when I got it. I guess I was waiting for a pot with a cream, like the sleeping mask? After using it for over a month I think I can tell you everything I found out about this mask.

[Review] Missha M BB Boomer

Missha M BB Boomer Review

Missha M BB Boomer Review:

When I dove into the makeup world of Asian beauty products and bought my first BB cream from Missha, I came across this product soon after. It was a highly recommended product due to its ability to “boost” BB creams applied on top of it – it could make any undertone of a BB cream look less yellow, gray, etc. In other words, it would make your skin tone appear more lively! It sounded like such an interesting product that I just had to try it.

[Review] Tosowoong Essence Cushion Vitalizing Perfect Cover SPF 50+ PA+++

Tosowoong Essence Cushion Vitalizing Perfect Cover SPF 50+ PA+++ Review

Tosowoong Essence Cushion Vitalizing Perfect Cover SPF 50+ PA+++ Review:

Dry, cold wind from the North once again tormented my sensitive dehydrated skin. This sentence sounds like I am a mountain climber or some adventurous creature. Oh God, no! I am talking this sitting at my dressing table trying to apply my foundation and cursing my skin barrier. There must be better way than this – said to myself looking at my dry patches and red papules in the mirror. As I was just looking into Asian skin care, I started my quest for something that would cover my blemishes, always flushed cheeks and of course with some ‘If I do say myself so’ not-drying-my-rosacean-face-like-rain-thirsty-land effect. Of course, let us make this game more interesting: also with non-sensitizing ingredients that would not by any chance aggravate my already angry skin.

After long hours surfing and eliminating one product after another after reading ingredients list, my eye caught something very, very interesting: ESSENCE CUSHION SPF 50+/PA+++, Vitalizing Perfect Cover by Tosowoong. Hm, cover with essence, sounds interesting!

[Review] New 2017 Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Seaweed Mask Sheet

Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Seaweed Mask Sheet Review

Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Seaweed Mask Sheet Review:

After I tried the Hyaluronic Acid mask from the same collection, I literally chose the next closest color to continue my adventure! And that turned out to be seaweed, an ingredient known everywhere to revitalize your skin. Literally, my mom doesn’t even sea bathe, but she always asks me to bring some seaweeds from the sand so she can put them on her skin – and it works.
So, knowing this, I expect my face to look glorious afterwards. Will it?

[Review] Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream

Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream Review

Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream Review:

Snail slime can be found in many Asian skincare creams or products and there’s very good reason why. Snail mucin is rich in elastin, proteins and peptides that makes skin healthy including hyaluronic acid that makes skin appear more soft and youthful. Snail mucin also possesses powerful anti-microbial properties that can prevent bacteria from developing. This is my first eye cream and since I have had great results with snail creams and other snail skincare, I decided to give this a shot.
