A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel Review

A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel Review:

As I constantly struggle with hormonal cystic acne, I try not to use heavy creams that are oil based, especially in the summer time. Now that it’s getting warmer in Canada, I am starting to breakout more. I was eagerly looking for a gel cream to not only hydrate but heal my skin, and I came across the A’pieu Madecassoside Cica Gel.

A’pieu is really famous for their Madecassoside line. They have a massive skincare range from toners and ampoules to creams and cleansing foams. I am an avid user of the Madecassoside sun cream and I absolutely adore it, but I’ll save that for another review.

The gel comes in a tub and a tube that are both 50ml. I chose the tube version for sanitary purposes as I don’t like the idea of dipping my fingers in.

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I was always on the hunt for a good physical sunscreen, until now. It’s difficult to find one that doesn’t give a white cast and applies smoothly. Sadly, there isn’t a lot of options especially in the Korean beauty industry.

The ones I have tried in the American beauty industry either has too much white cast, is very thick, and is too expensive. While I was scrolling and doing my research on sunscreen, I came across this product. It is known to have Centella Asiatica and is physical sunscreen. So, I thought it would be a good candidate to try!

Romand See Through Matte Tint 03 Through Coral Review

Romand See Through Matte Tint 03 Through Coral Review:

After the Juicy Lasting Tint, once again I decided to spend my money on the latest tint from Romand, the See Through Matte Tint. It’s been so well-advertised on Instagram and I also heard about them from Korean beauty influencers on Youtube. Most of them were saying that the tints have good qualities, not drying, and pigmented so me, as a girl who is easy to persuade, finally bought it to try.

If compared to the Zero Velvet Tint, I think it’s pretty obvious that these 2 have different formula but most of the time Korean version of velvet and matte are not that different. If you saw some reviews on both products then you will notice that both finishes are looking very similar. The Zero Velvet Tint is not my favorite so I hope the See Through Matte Tint will perform better and longer on my lips.

These days I saw most Korean online shops who did worldwide shipping are selling Romand products including this tint so it’s easy to find if you want to try it too. The price is pretty affordable so it’s still budget-friendly.

3CE Smoothing Lip Tint Have a Blast Review

3CE Smoothing Lip Tint Have a Blast Review:

Finally 3 Concept Eyes is back with a new lip tint!

Since they released the Velvet tint (which is a huge hit and one of my favorite lip tint), I’m curious to see if they will make another one with better quality. About a month ago when I was browsing my favorite online shop, I’ve seen the new Smoothing Lip Tint and I was so excited I bought it right away.

I love how 3CE really showcases their lip tints, they really want to show the customers on how to make a makeup style to match the tint colors, so I always find these information are very helpful. You can also check on their website to see the full information about the tint along with the ingredient list.

They only have 5 shades and all of them are on the bold side. I think the shades are perfect for summer but as a fan of natural lip color, I hope they can make more shades in the future. If you love bold and bright lip color, then you will this collection fun and interesting.

[REVIEW] JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black

JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black Review

JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black Review:

Compared to the sheet masks from other brands, JM Solution’s are relatively higher in price, especially in my country that has no JM Solution official stores yet. So don’t be surprised to find that the price is two-times higher than Nature Republic, The Face Shop, or Etude House.

JM Solution’s actually a short for ‘Journey to Miracle Solution’ – which is a good way to advertise its claim. I’ve found mask sheets from JM Solution quite attractive since it has a minimalist, classy design on the packaging which suits my personal preference. Moreover, JM Solution also provides a lot of varieties with their own unique main ingredients! It took me quite some time to decide among Lacto Saccharomyces Golden Mask, Centella Madecca Capsule Mask, Water Luminous S.O.S Ringer Mask and more, but finally made up my mind to buy JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black. More because the cocoon component; so please don’t disappoint me!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] A’PIEU Personal Tone Foundation W01 Porcelain

A'PIEU Personal Tone Foundation W01 Porcelain Review

A’PIEU Personal Tone Foundation W01 Porcelain Review:

I think the Personal Tone Foundation is one of the most well-known foundations from A’Pieu, it even beats its ancestor, the Triple Wear Foundation (which I really dislike). The Personal Tone Foundation is a foundation made specifically for fitting every skin tone with different undertones. A’Pieu ensures that everyone will at least find their matching tone because in total, they have 12 shades.

I didn’t plan to get this foundation but after saw that it was on sale, I bought it immediately and lucky me, my shade, W01 Porcelain was in stock. If you notice, the shades have 3 different numerations start from C for cool, W for warm, and N for neutral. Actually I should get the neutral shade but it was sold out at that moment so the warm one is my choice.

Honestly, I think 12 shades is nothing if compared to other foundations from the west that have up to 60 shades but for a Korean drugstore brand, I really appreciate how they decide to make a foundation line with these shades selection. If you are a foreigner who lives in Korea and having a hard time in finding base makeup for your skin tone, I think this one can be your best friend.

[REVIEW] Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spot Serum

Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spot Serum Review

Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spot Serum Review:

I needed a good Vitamin C serum that would help me with my hyperpigmentation. I usually use Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop, but it seemed like it wasn’t doing much for me. I wanted to make sure that it was a serum type that was easy to use.

I didn’t want the hassle of worrying about the discoloration and having to put it into the refrigerator. When I saw this product online, I was aware of the hype. Many people talked endlessly about how great and effective this product was. Which brought me to the question, is it worth the hype?

Romand Juicy Lasting Tint 06 FigFig Review

Romand Juicy Lasting Tint 06 FigFig Review:

December last year, I got the opportunity to try the famous Romand Zero Velvet Tint and even though it has good qualities, I find it a tad bit too drying for my lips. Months after, I saw that Romand has renewed their Juicy Lasting Tint. I’m not too sure if they reformulate it as well or just placed it in a new packaging, but I still curious and finally got the chance to try it.

From the Juicy Lasting Tint, I expected to see a shiny tint with plumping effect to make a juicy lips look. The reviews I read before were divided, some love it while the others weren’t too fond of the tint. I don’t like glosses but I do like shiny lip tint because they make my lips look plumper and they also doesn’t make my lips feel dry hence I really want to try this tint since long ago.

I don’t expect the tint to last very long since it’s more on the shiny side so I won’t judge it by the long lasting-ness but I hope it will perform well and look good on the lips. If you saw the official swatch pictures, they are really pretty so let’s see if it will live to my expectation or not.
