[REVIEW] A’pieu Milky U Oil Serum

A'pieu Milky U Oil Serum Review

A’pieu Milky U Oil Serum was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When Nigama showed me this Milky U serum from A’pieu, I found its simplicity attractive, since I still have the ”teenager” skin. That means that my skin isn’t in need of many fancy ingredients that most products have (and yes, I know, I’ve been totally abusing the fancy ingredients). Lately I’ve noticed how all the products I buy usually contain ingredients that can be to harsh for the skin or are known for their effectiveness.

Of course that’s usually good but I really feel like I’m giving my skin way to much to handle. The truth is that my only problem is acne and the things that can cause it are countless. That’s why I decided to simplify my routine and let my skin breathe for a second.

[REVIEW] LaFORLAB Blackhead Vacuum Cleaner 3 Step Care

LaFORLAB Blackhead Vacuum Cleaner 3 Step Care Review

LaFORLAB Blackhead Vacuum Cleaner 3 Step Care Review:

Once I got Red Spot Repair Cream as a free product from this brand, and then I liked it so much I bought it again. And I bought two more products with it. This was one of the other two products I bought! I’m not crazy about pore strips but for some reason I keep using them.

LaFORLAB specializes in sensitive skins so I thought this product would not work but that at least it wouldn’t harm my skin. Right? Wrong! It did not harm my skin, as I expected, but it did have some results. So I’m happy to talk about it!

[REVIEW] The Face Shop Oil Specialist Brightening Cleansing Oil with Prune

The Face Shop Oil Specialist Brightening Cleansing Oil with Prune Review

The Face Shop Oil Specialist Brightening Cleansing Oil with Prune Review:

This is the first ever cleansing oil of my life and I got it without checking the reviews or ingredient list whatsoever. I still remember that evening when I got into The Face Shop showroom to get me a decent moisturiser. After getting me a moisturiser, I wandered around and the saleslady introduced the cleansing oil to me.

I believe every girl would understand that situation when you just intended to buy 1 and you ended up buy more than 3. I mean, I believe I am not alone. *feeling guilty to my wallet*There were 3 different kinds of cleansing oils at the time: Pore clean, Deep firming and Brightening. As I needed to brighten my skin tone a bit, I chose the Brightening one.

[REVIEW] Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Pouch Pack Bamboo Charcoal | Peeling Gel

Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Pouch Pack Bamboo Charcoal Peeling Gel Review

Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Pouch Pack Bamboo Charcoal | Peeling Gel Review:

I generally love Aritaum (as a brand) since they do have a decent standard products for inexpensive prices. So after trying the Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Pouch Collagen sleeping mask last time, I grabbed the Peeling mask from the same collection that focused on flakey skin.

Now, I don’t currently have flakey skin, but that’s because I do light exfoliation once a week. Still, if this is a gel-type of peeling mask it counts and gentle if I do it right, and it can be a really practical product to take on vacation. I mean, you buy in in “sample size” for “sample price” and in a pouch that lets you use it more than one time. Practical. So I got this one and decided to try it too!

[REVIEW] Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Fluid

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Fluid Review

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Fluid Review:

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Fluid is a product containing baby mugwort that claims to soothe skin irritations from lack of hydration and moisture. Although the product is watery and light, it works very well to hydrate the skin, especially in a Korean skincare routine when you layer different products of lighter to thicker texture.

Since my skin is easily dehydrated, I was looking for a hydrating product that works well in my skincare routine which involves layering different products to keep my skin moisturized for longer. What I learned from my Korean friends is that it is really helpful to first put on light yet hydrating products before a rich cream to seal in all the moisture. When I saw and tested the Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Fluid at the store, I knew it is the perfect product for replenishing hydration back to the skin during drier weather.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Review

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Review:

I’ve had permanent dark circles under my eyes ever since I can remember. Even in older photos I find from when I was 2 years old, you can still see the circles. It mostly happens because of my bone structure but my skin also has some issues, otherwise, it would’ve been pretty pointless to try anything to reduce dark circles.

I’ve tried multiple vitamins and stuff but I didn’t manage to get rid of the problem. When I first discovered The Ordinary, I just browsed on their website and randomly found this. I had already heard of the difference caffeine solution can make to dark circles and the antioxidant power of EGCG so I found it promising.

[REVIEW] A’pieu Olive Facial Oil Moisture Care

Apieu Olive Facial Oil Moisture Care Review

A’pieu Olive Facial Oil Moisture Care Review:

I have been using facial oils recently. I find they are a nice way of, mainly, turning a normal cream into a night cream. Also, they allow me to use less moisturizing creams that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to use in the winter – and would eventually go to waste because silly me had already opened them. I also use facial oils as a quick fix when out of the house, and as a sole moisturizer in some cases. And if you’re worried that facial oils aren’t for you just because you have oily skin: that is not necessarily the case. In fact, some oils can be more beneficial than creams!

But we are here to talk about this specific oil. Which I bought firstly because it was inexpensive – and I really wanted to see how good an inexpensive oil can be. And secondly because it was olive oil and I’m Mediterranean so try making me resist that.

[REVIEW] Etude House Sunprise Mild Perfect Relief SPF30 PA++

Etude House Sunprise Mild Perfect Relief SPF30 PA++ Review

Etude House Sunprise Mild Perfect Relief SPF30 PA++ Review:

Etude House has been one of my favorite Korean skin care brands for a long time, and also the first one that I tried. Admittedly I first bought their products not for their effectiveness but rather because SHINee were their advertising models. Not the best of reasons, but that’s okay, because I actually do like quite a few of their products.

Anyway, I picked up this sunscreen in Korea, when they were having a sale and the sunscreen I wanted to buy was out of stock. It seemed to be a new product and so I looked up the info and decided to try it since I was low on sunscreen anyway. What attracted this sunscreen to me was the fact that it uses physical filters and was in a cream rather than a liquid type of sunscreen.

[REVIEW] Hylamide HA Blur

Hylamide HA Blur Review

Hylamide HA Blur Review:

I got pretty curious about DECIEM and its products after coming across many reviews of products from its economical range The Ordinary.

DECIEM is a Canadian company, interestingly also known as “The Abnormal Beauty Company”.  It started as a modest company in year 2013 with only 1 brand and 1 product but has since grown to carry 10 brands under its umbrella with an array of products ranging from skincare to hair care. The Ordinary is one of its better known brand, raved for the product efficacy and the attractive price point.

And having tried the Niacinamide 10% + Zince PCA 1% myself, I am sold that their products are worth a second look. So I went on to check out its other skincare brands and products. Hylamide is its mid-range skincare brand which was in fact launched before The Ordinary though I do not come across it as much on google search. Probably lesser hype because the prices are about double that of The Ordinary, akin to many other mid-range brands in the market. So what other differences are there?  The Ordinary have the ingredients in separate serum, so in a way, it is very targeted. Hylamide combines the ingredients to address various skincare concerns and offers the complete range of products including sun protection and primer which The Ordinary does not have. Not to mention the packaging for Hylamide is more colorful.
