Heart Made Bless of Gaia Flax & Herb Nourishing Skincare Oil Review

Heart Made Bless of Gaia Flax & Herb Nourishing Skincare Oil Review:

Recently I’ve been quite interested in facial oils and so I’ve been on the hunt to find some different oils that would help my dry skin out. When I finished the oil that I was using at night, I was looking for a replacement when I stumbled across a local website selling this Heart Made facial oil. It was made by a company I’d never heard of before so I was curious about it. Because it was a brand I had never heard of before I did try to find some reviews (and failed) and also looked into the company to decide whether to buy it or not.

According to Heart Made’s website, their products are vegan and they focus on using natural ingredients with plant extracts and oils. Their products also seem to have very few ingredients in them. When I read the description on their website about the oil it sounded as though it was good for rosacea (which I have mildly), and minimising skin irritation too. In the end I decided to just try it out, after all what was the worst that could happen?

[REVIEW] Etude House Precious Mineral Compact Vanilla

Etude House Precious Mineral Compact Vanilla Review

Etude House Precious Mineral Compact Vanilla Review:

When Etude House released this new powder compact, I was hopeful that it would be like the previous Precious Mineral compact which I could use instead of bb cream on lazy days. The old one was almost too dark for me, so when I saw this one came in more shades than the previous ones I was really happy and hopeful about this compact.

I truthfully didn’t do much research about this compact, instead looking at the 5 different shades and hoping that it would be better than the previous one. I wasn’t sure which color to get because the Etude House website swatches all look quite similar so it is a bit deceiving. I went with the lightest color because almost every powder I’ve tried has been way too pigmented or the undertone is completely wrong for me.

[REVIEW] It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector with Licorice

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector Review

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector Review:

Once I heard about these essences I was curious about them, especially since there are so many varieties and different types. I spent a lot of time researching different ones deciding which one to try. Of course, in the end I decided to pick the LI effector – which contains liquorice. Why liquorice? Well because it’s meant to be good at reducing redness which sounds perfect to me. After all I’m sick of looking like Rudolph the red nosed reindeer or like a tomato all year round.

The LI effector also had the best reviews, it seemed like it helped a lot of people’s redness. So, I was hopeful that maybe it would work for me. Despite the triethanolamine, I thought it also has a pretty good ingredient list with a good percentage of liquorice too.

[REVIEW] Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla Review

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla Review:

Despite the disappointing experience I had with the moist version of this bb cream, I still found myself becoming curious about how the matte bb cream would perform. After all I always trust Etude House products and their bb cream was the first one I ever used. Plus, I’ve never been a fan of dewy finishes, so it wasn’t surprising that I didn’t like the moist one.

I also read some reviews where people said the matte wasn’t too drying and it was just less dewy which sounded perfect to me. However, I was concerned the formula of the bb cream wouldn’t be any better than the moist version. But how could I ever know if the formula was as bad if I never tested it myself? It seems wrong to decide something must be bad without actually trying it out, which was why I decided to try the matte version instead of turning my back on it.

[REVIEW] CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient

CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient Review

Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Because my skin is dry and dehydrated, I’ve long known that I need some kind of emulsion or emollient in my routine. Honestly, every thing I’ve tried until now hasn’t really done that much for my skin. Which is why I haven’t tried any for a while especially since because I didn’t think I needed one during summer. However, now that it’s autumn I thought it’s a perfect time to start looking for one to use during winter.

At first glance I thought this Dermatory emollient didn’t look any different from any other emulsion I’ve used before and I wondered if it was very similar to the Dr. Jart one, if it was just Clio trying to create a dupe or something similar. However, once I looked at the Dermatory website and saw how it was free of 20 harmful ingredients and that it contained shea butter, allantoin and ceramides I became interested to see how it well it works. According to Dermatory it also should be soothing and help to repair the moisture barrier, well I’ve read that from many products before and few actually seem to live up to that claim. So, from the start I was skeptical and unsure if I could believe those claims yet hopeful, so read on to see if I was disappointed or happy in the end.

[REVIEW] Etude House Be My Universe Pinky Galaxy Universe Multi Palette

Etude House Be My Universe Pinky Galaxy Universe Multi Palette Review

Etude House Be My Universe Pinky Galaxy Universe Multi Palette Review:

Truthfully, I’m not one to wear much make-up, other than bb cream and occasionally mascara. But for a while I’ve been wanting to wear more make-up and wanting to buy some eyeshadow, but usually I haven’t found the shades I wanted until Etude House came out with these multi palettes. Or… maybe it was the design that won me over?

I mean who could resist the shimmering planet designs of the palettes? Not me. I loved the design for the golden galaxy, the black case looked utterly gorgeous, but realistically I knew the colors wouldn’t match my skin, and I loved the pink, blue and purplish case of the other design too. Plus, the colors inside looked like they would match my skin better, or at least I hoped so.

[REVIEW] Neulii Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum

Neulii Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum Review

Neulii Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum Review:

Neulii is a Korean skin care brand launched by the online shop RoseRoseShop, and when they first launched the brand they were kind enough to send out free samples to people. However, that wasn’t the reason I became interested in this serum, but rather the fact that it had so few ingredients and the fact that RoseRoseShop were so transparent about the percentages of actives and ingredients in their products. I liked the fact that they produced a simple serum with few ingredients and their openness about the products details.

When I saw they had a snail bee serum I was curious to try one and see if it would work for me, since so many people seem to have great success with snail products. It also contains propolis which is an ingredient that I also like in skin care, I’ve long been a fan of Cosrx Honey overnight sleeping mask which also has propolis in it. The simple clean design of the product appealed to me, and the low price so of course I couldn’t resist buying it.

[REVIEW] Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream

Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream Review

Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream Review:

When I first started using Korean skin care products, snail seemed to be the most amazing thing ever. I loved the first snail cream that I used, finding the texture and feel of it to be great, since then I’ve used a number of different products with snail and honestly, I’ve been a bit disappointed with them. However, I am still always willing to try another snail product because you never know when you will find the perfect snail product, or at least, that was what I hoped!

Mizon’s snail cream attracted me because it has such a high percentage of snail in it, the ones I used previously I later realized only contained minute traces of snail mucin. So, I figured this repair cream must be more effective than the snail creams I had tried before. The fact that it also comes in a tube appealed to me because I think tubes are more hygienic.

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Moist SPF50+PA+++ Vanilla Review

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Moist SPF50+ PA+++ Vanilla Review:

When Etude House came out with a new range of BB creams in different shades than their usual ones, I just knew that I had try to them. Especially when I saw that they had ones with a pink base rather than just the usual yellow one. The previous BB creams from Etude House worked out well for me, only the undertone and shade didn’t match, but they lasted well on my skin. So, I finally thought that I would find the perfect BB cream when Etude House launched these.

This line of BB creams comes in 5 different shades which have some pink based, yellow based and even neutral based colors, so that they should work better for more people’s skin tones, hopefully.
