[REVIEW] CNP Laboratory Daily Peeling Foam

CNP Laboratory Daily Peeling Foam Review:

After falling in love with the CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun, I started to pay more interest to products by this brand. The background of starting as a dermatology clinic and its philosophy of producing high quality skincare products lend me confidence that CNP products should hit the right note with my skin. What next caught my eye is the CNP Laboratory Daily Peeling Foam.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Cleansing Foam Review:

One of the luxury Asian beauty brands that have been on my radar for quite some time now is none other than the famous Sulwhasoo. There are a few products that I am interested to try, but before I splurge on the full size I decided to get some trial sizes first. And I started with the Snowise EX Cleansing Foam.

[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] New COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser | 2017 Version

[REVIEW] New COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser | 2017 Version

COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser Review:

If you’re someone with oily and acne-prone skin, you would probably be well acquainted with Salicylic Acid. But for the sake of those who are new to it, it is a powerful peeling agent. It is a form of beta hydroxyl acid thus making it a perfect component for deep cleansing and exfoliation!

I have long used salicylic acid infused cleansers, naturally, COSRX Salicylic Acid Cleanser peak my curiosity but I skipped it because I’ve read that it is too drying. Recently, however, they have released a reformulated cleanser. It is now milder, apparently so mild that you can use it every day. I don’t know about you but every bits of grease in me is tingling with joy and excitement!

[Review] Hada Labo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Foaming Wash | 2016 Version

[Review] Hada Labo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Foaming Wash | 2016 Version

Hada Labo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Foaming Wash Review:

The Japanese brand Hada Labo needs no introduction. Every Asian beauty enthusiasts would know of this brand. It is highly popular and well loved by everyone across the globe, namely for its lotions(also known as toners) and facial cleansers.

Hada Labo boasts to use only the purest ingredients that are beneficial to the skin, with no unnecessary additives and manufactured under strict pharmaceutical standards.

Hada Labo had a number of skincare range to combat different skin issues. And the product I am going to review today is from the Gokujyun line (for moisturizing), and it is the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Foaming Wash (wow, that’s a mouthful!).

[Review] Nature Republic Rose Mousse Cleanser

[Review] Nature Republic Rose Mousse Cleanser

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] Bifesta Brightening Cleansing Lotion

[Review] Bifesta Brightening Cleansing Lotion

Bifesta Brightening Cleansing Lotion Review:

I had once tried a deluxe sample of this without  knowing it was this product. It is one of the most famous cleansing waters around (although it’s called a lotion it’s really not very lotion-like). Without knowing I had already tried this once, I got my hands on the Hello Kitty version of it!

I wasn’t originally a big Hello Kitty fan but when I went to a place called Hello Kitty Island (think of it as a Hello Kitty museum) I started valuing her for all that she has done for women. I mean, I already liked her friend Cinnamoroll, so it’s not that I disliked the cat! I just didn’t care much about the cat itself.

Regardless, this Hello Kitty version is exclusive to Korea (for some reason) but the product inside is the classic Bifesta “blue bottle” brightening cleansing lotion of the same name (also known as bright up cleansing lotion).

[Review] Innisfree Apple Seed Deep Cleansing Foam

[Review] Innisfree Apple Seed Deep Cleansing Foam

Innisfree Apple Seed Deep Cleansing Foam Review:

An apple a day keeps the blemishes away! Did you know that the seeds of apples contain monounsaturated fatty acids which are immensely beneficial for the skin? It can stimulate collagen synthesis so that skin looks youthful, is rich in antioxidants, can rejuvenate the skin and is able to cleanse the skin from the inside to soothe acne!

I was suffering from a sudden bout of acne flareup but did not change my routine because I thought it was PMS. I received a travel sized bottle of the IF Apple Seed Foam and decided to use it during my 8 days in Taiwan and my skin started clearing up after the second night of using it. I was previously using The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser which, in retrospect, I was dumb enough to not have suspected was the culprit behind the redness. Urgh.

After I returned from Taiwan, I decided to purchase a bottle of the cleansing foam. Let’s check out how the product fared!

Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Conditioner Review:

Having delved into Asian skincare/cosmetics for more than a year now, it was inevitable that I’d try my hand at Asian haircare as well. And surely enough, as I found myself running out of my usual Western-brand conditioner, I decided to pick up a conditioner from a brand I’d been eyeing a few weeks prior as it seemed a safe choice coming from a relatively reputable Japanese company.
