Tonymoly Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Tonymoly Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion Review:

I will be perfectly honest and admit that I bought Tonymoly Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion solely for the package, without even testing it. The reason for that is, if the foundation cream is not to my liking I will simply clean all of it and replace it with some other foundation cream I enjoy more.

So, I went on this journey without testing nor expectations. I love the package, to me that is enough reason to buy this, as the price is quite friendly! Regardless, with this Pokemon collection you can have everything: from basic skin care to a body lotion, and full face makeup! So, at least a part of it is worth taking a shot at, right?

Itibiti Yogurt Mask Pack Review:

I bought Itibiti Yogurt Mask Pack because I see yogurt mask packs everywhere, and I love the yogurt they claim to copy, so I want to try all of them. Now, some of them are super expensive and some of them are super affordable. Like this one, for example, you can buy it in the convenience store one for 1000 KRW (under 1$) and a pack of five for 5000 KRW (under 5$). So, I got myself a pack of five, and indulge myself in yogurt.

Tonymoly Pikachu Moisture Mask Sheet Review

This mask was the first thing I wanted to try as soon as I saw the Pokemon collection in Tony Moly, but I didn’t buy it. Why didn’t I buy it? Because the Pikachu mask (not the other characters’) you can get as a present when you buy any of the other products! Tonymoly Pikachu Moisture Mask Sheet looks different from the one in the collection (this one is rectangular, the other one actually is Pikachu shaped) because they wanted to differentiate the ones you buy from the ones you receive as an extra(gift). This one, the squared one, is the one you receive as an extra. But I should let you know – both masks are the same, the same formula, smell, same everything except package!

So, as soon as I got it I tried it. And kept using it. And now I decided to write about it! I’m sure most of you like this mask, because Pikachu is so cute, even if you don’t care for Pokemon itself.

Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack Review

Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack Review:

I’ve been an avid anime fan since Heidi first played on Portuguese television, and was aware of what Japanese animation was. That was so many years ago! Of course, as a fan, I also fell for Pokemon when the time came. And for someone who fell for Asian beauty (and this part I’m sure you understand) I saw the new collection and simply had to have it! I bought all the products I wanted as they came out, but for some reason I missed this one!

I just happened to be walking by on some-day-afternoon and saw this Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack (imagine how shocked I was), of course I bought it on impulse. At first look it seems like the black masks going around the internet, the ones who peel off your black pores. And reading the description it clearly says it cleans the pores. So yay! I got it and let’s start! This was literally the first time I used a peel off pack, so I’ll walk you through it.

Nature Republic AQUA Max Watery Toner & Emulsion Review

Nature Republic AQUA Max Watery Toner & Emulsion Review:

As you can imagine just by reading my skin type, it is a very troublesome skin. I started having acne at age 9, then, while still having it, my skin became allergic, sensitive, mixed oily and dry, and all before I even had my period! As times passed and I started finding out what is good and bad on my skin and it became more controllable and now most people can’t even imagine any of those things by looking at my skin. Which is a good thing!

My first trick is to always, at any given time, have emergency lotion in the house. A lotion focused on hydrating, without making my skin oilier, something nice and calming, and with a nice smell. Something I can use on the worst skin days.
I have tried and been satisfied with two Korean products when it comes to that, and this one is the only I still use.

Now, let me tell you, Nature Republic is like Tony Moly – usually you love some stuff and hate others, but they are cheap so you can always give them a try.

I have heard bad reviews, or disappointed reviews regarding the cream on this Aqua max line(but also lots of good reviews). But never regarding the Nature Republic Aqua Max Watery Toner & Emulsion that we are seeing here today.

Laneige All day Anti-pollution Defensor SPF 30 PA++ | Review

Laneige All day Anti-pollution Defensor SPF 30 PA++ Review

First of all – this is a product that not even many Koreans know about! So, why did I buy an anti-pollution defensor? In Korea there is a lot of pollution. I don’t only mean the trash on the street, visual pollution, sound pollution, light pollution, AIR pollution as most big cities have. Those who live in south east Asia know for a fact the real enemy is the thin powder, the Chinese dust, yellow dust, red dust, it comes with a lot of names. Coming from a clean country with clean air, and living by the sea on which I dived several times and gave me a sodium cleansing, when I arrived to Korea right away I felt the damages of this pollution type. I got asthma, skin irritation and later skin allergies. When the fine dust is severe I don’t even need to check the reports, I can just look in the mirror and I will have a bunch of infected, swollen ‘pimples’ 3 times the size of a normal acne pimple, which hurt and are red as if I had just scratched them. And so there are two things one must do: proper cleansing and proper prevention. This is, by my experience, the best prevention one can take against pollution. And it really works even just as a pore protector, even when I went back home for the summer! So, with all these characteristics I just had to try this. Oh, did I mention it also has SPF 30 PA++? It’s not enough for the summer but during the winter it does the trick.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask & Clay Mousse Mask | Original | Review

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask & Clay Mousse Mask Original Review

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask & Clay Mousse Mask Original Review:

Back in Europe, even when my skincare routine was as basic as 3 steps – foam cleanser, water mist, and cream, every other day I did a clay mask. Literally, I had powdered purified clay to which I would add water and make a paste, and then apply it to my face. The reason is that clay cleans and gently removes the dead skin.

So, of course when it comes to Korean skin care I also find it important to have a good clay mask, right? There are several good ones out there, but to me the one that takes the prize is the Innisfree Jeju volcanic clay mask in original. The collection has several different types, this one, the super version – for a stronger effect, and a pack for localized treatment, and of course a cleanser, a toner, a lotion, the list goes on.

Nature Republic Olive Real Nature Cream | Review

Nature Republic Olive Real Nature Cream Review

The real nature collection is an affordable line of mainly natural products, and they have a lot of different scents, or base products. They extend from Rose to Argan, and of course Olive, among others. The products also have different prices, depending on the star ingredient, and as a Mediterranean girl I really wanted to try something from the Olive part of the collection. So I chose Nature Republic Olive Real Nature Cream.

Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence Review

Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence Review:

So, I have been in a struggle for a few months, trying to get rid of my blemishes and trying to normalize my pores’ shapes (they’re supposed to be round, but mine have all sorts of shapes). According to an examination I did in the Innisfree store, where they measure your skin everything-levels, my blemishes and pores could be solved with one of two essences. This one, or the one from the orchid collection. So, for starters I chose Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence.

Just to break the suspense, it did work, but I will still try the other one, in case it works better for my specific case. Below I will analyze the essence independently of my skin goal, and focusing solely on the feeling and sensation, also the effects of this essence!
