[REVIEW] Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum

Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum Review

Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum Review:

Pyunkang Yul is a skincare brand launched from the renowned Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic in Korea, which primarily treats atopic skin disorders. Aiming to revolutionize how you approach skincare, the brand advises to not just consider your skin type, but to also consider your body and environment when choosing products.

Thus, the birth of a line of products targeting a healthy oil-moisture skin balance in conjunction with traditional Chinese medicine – a very interesting idea in the sea of trendy ingredients and advertising in the oversaturated K-Beauty market.

So, although I am a bit late to the PKY party (to the point that they’ve now launched a new ACNE line), I wanted to give a well-thought out review after a decent duration of time. With naturally heaty facial skin and doomed to a humid climate day in and day out, did the Moisture Serum work out well for me?

[REVIEW] Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review:

Purito is a Korean brand that’s been making waves recently, mostly online in the Instagram beauty community, at least from what I’ve seen. Touting itself as brand with “safe and honest ingredients that everyone – friends, family, and even babies – can have faith in”, I have to say that they’ve set some pretty high standards for themselves.

So while I can see that the ingredients used in their products seem promising, you can never know how a product would work for you unless you try it for yourselves. Which is why when I received this as a gift from a friend for my birthday, I was delighted and intrigued. But does this cleanser live up to Purito’s claim of being mild and sensitive-skin friendly?

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review:

Moonshot is a brand I’ve always been interested in due to its chic, sleek and often minimalist aesthetic. If I remember correctly, I first heard of the brand due to its popular Jelly Pots, which were raved about by various beauty bloggers a few years back. However, due to scarcity in local stores (I often prefer to swatch makeup products beforehand) and their products’ often mid-high price tag, I eventually just shrugged the urge off.

However, when a flagship Moonshot store opened up locally and later held a number of products on sale, I decided to give in and ended up getting myself one of their cushions as I was coincidentally running out of base makeup. So, how did the Microfit Cushion – or also known as the “GD/G-Dragon Cushion” hold up in humid climate?

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review:

Admittedly, I always tend to stray away from most hyped up things in fear of being disappointed and/or underwhelmed. Hence, the main reason why I’m only now offering up a review for one of The Ordinary’s various skincare products; this in particular being a destashed item from my friend as she found it to not work for her (allergic reactions, irritation, etc). Thinking that it’d be worth a try considering my penchant for anything targeting pigmentation issues (arbutin is a well-known skin brightening agent!), I decided to put it to the test. Would the YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) rule ring true?

[REVIEW] Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask

Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask Review

Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask Review:

Polatam is a brand I’ve frequently seen around and heard about, but due to the price tag, have always been wondering about from afar. Claimed to be created by Park Tam Hee, an acclaimed Korean actress with a keen knowledge of beauty and skincare, the Polatam skincare range definitely caught my eye more due to its chic packaging more than anything.

Overall very clean and classy, with interesting notable ingredients thrown about, I was definitely excited when I was gifted a couple of masks from this range to try out. But the question remains: does the quality/experience reflect its price tag?

9wishes Perfect Ampule Serum Calm Review

9wishes Perfect Ampule Serum Calm Review:

9wishes isn’t a brand I’m wholly familiar with, and from their brand, I’ve only really seen this particular line around – I bought mine in a physical Watsons during my Bangkok trip last year – and maybe a few other products like their Vanishing Balm which apparently works well as a tone-up cream. But after consulting a friend who’s tried the Oxygen type from this line and having encouraging results, I decided to snag myself one to try.

[REVIEW] Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+/PA+++

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+PA+++ Review

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+/PA+++ Review:

To be honest, I’ve always been quite intrigued with Yadah’s skincare line. It’s not the most raved about brand, I think, but it does pride itself on being “natural” and sensitive skin-friendly, so that certainly got my attention. However, since I try not to spend impulsively in general (although I do have strong urges… don’t we all?) I couldn’t really find a reason to purchase anything from the brand because I had other products to use up first. So when I received this in a gift exchange among friends last year, I was very excited.

[REVIEW] Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner Super Keep 02 Bitter Brown

Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner Super Keep 02 Bitter Brown Review

Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner Super Keep 02 Bitter Brown Review:

For the most part, I’m more of a mascara person, so I never was one for the whole strong jet black cat eye look as more often than not, it’d obscure the rest of my eye makeup and make my lashes look less prominent. However, I found a compromise for when I did want some eye makeup exaggeration: brown eyeliner.

Less intense, less prone to visually blocking out my naturally black lashes, and definitely more suitable for “soft looks” or standalone wear without coming off “too strong”. And well, since I trust Heroine Make with my mascara needs, I decided, why not give their eyeliner a go, too?

[REVIEW] New 2018 OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50+/PA++++

OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA Review

OMI Menturm Japan Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50+/PA++++ was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When it comes to sunscreens, I admit that I’m quite partial to Japanese formulations. Due to their high SPF/PA ratings to block out harmful UV rays, cosmetic elegance, double function as makeup primers and availability in local stores, it’s no wonder that I always end up picking out one or two to try when I’m low on sun protection.

Hence, when I was approached by Cosmeperks to try out a recently launched sunscreen from Menturm, I was intrigued right off the bat and agreed almost instantaneously. Putting honesty at the forefront of all my reviews, did this sunscreen manage to flirt its way into my “forever repurchase” list?
