The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask Review:

I’ll admit that I’ve been totally obsessed with wash off masks this year! And strangely, I’ve been wanting to try floral and rose related ones, because they just sound good? Earlier in the year, I was looking for a new wash off mask and I came across this one. There weren’t many reviews about it, but the fact that it said “daily” and also “moisturizing” made me want it. After all I want a wash off mask that can be used daily, and is also easy to wash off. Of course, it needs to be moisturizing as well!

You can say it was a purchase without any research or planning (I always seem to do this, oops!). I was simply looking for a basic wash off mask that I could use every day. One that wouldn’t cost a lot, or one that wouldn’t be too hard to wash off. Plus when I looked up the mask ingredients, it seemed to have so few ingredients which was another reason I decided to buy it. Read on to see if I regret my latest purchase, or if in the end I liked it.

[REVIEW] Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Coconut

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Coconut Review

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Coconut Review:

I don’t think I need to introduce Innisfree, because I think they are a well-known brand that everyone has at least heard of, right? I actually haven’t used too many of their products, but when I’m visiting Seoul, I still like to look around their stores. Their packaging and products look incredibly beautiful, and I’m always tempted to buy and try many things. Anyway, at the end of the year I visited an Innisfree store, wanting to buy sheet masks!

I was especially looking for masks that are different from the varieties I could get from Etude House. Etude House sheet masks are my favorite, if I’m honest. But they don’t have all the varieties and flavors, so as soon as I saw these coconut masks at Innisfree, I had to buy it. After all, I’m a huge fan of coconut – the scent, as a food/drink, etc.

I’ll admit it was a purchase I made without knowing a thing about the ingredients, or anything like that. I did read it was good for dry skin, so I bought two of them to try. Coconut for me is also really nostalgic and makes me think of my childhood, so I really can’t help but fall for coconut related things! I was really hoping this would have a delicious coconut scent/smell, and that I would instantly love it… read on to see what I thought about it.

[REVIEW] Village 11 Factory Snail Eye Cream

Village 11 Factory Snail Eye Cream Review

Village 11 Factory Snail Eye Cream Review:

I’d never heard of Village 11 Factory before but when this eye cream popped up on a shopping site, something about the packaging intrigued me. I tried to google the company, but had the name wrong (I had 11 first) and so I didn’t find anything about it. I was still curious about the eye cream and brand since it was one I didn’t know, so I kept looking into it. Despite not knowing anything about the brand, my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to give it a go. The fact that it contains 59% snail mucin, shea butter, niacinamide, adenosine, ferments and peptides did help me decide to buy it. It seems to have a lot of amazing sounding ingredients in it, and so of course I had to buy it to see how well it would work.

After I ordered it I found out that Village 11 Factory has a shop in Garosugil, and was started by a “mad” scientist, I guess that was the distinctive guy on the front of the snail eye cream packaging. To say that I was intrigued by this brand/company is something of an understatement, and so I had no regrets in ordering this eye cream, but whether it will live up to my expectations is another question entirely. I actually started to write this review almost a year ago! Why? Because I finished the first tube and I was unsure how I felt about it, but the second tube took so long to arrive that I didn’t use it for some months. And now it’s 2019, and I’ve almost finished the second tube of this eye cream, and well this review is long overdue.

[REVIEW] Etude House 3 Minutes Care Pack in Shower

Etude House 3 Minutes Care Pack in Shower Review

Etude House 3 Minutes Care Pack in Shower Review:

Etude House actually released this 3-minute line last year!! It’s based on the famous Ottogi 3-minute food series/range, which is a really cool and cute idea in my opinion. They came out with a range of 3 min sheet masks (30 in a pack), this wash off mask and two types of sheet masks. One of the sheet masks – the 3 minutes Turmeric one was reviewed by Ana B.

I was especially interested in the wash off mask because well I haven’t tried too many wash off masks and they seem like a great idea for the shower. The fact that it’s “3 minutes” means it should be easy to wash off and great for lazy people like me. It also contains calendula flower petals and turmeric, but more importantly to me was the fact that it was designed to be used in the shower. Since I have dry skin – I really avoid getting my face wet in the shower, until near the end because otherwise my skin gets irritated and dry. So, to me this mask looked really appealing and I hoped it would be one that washed off easily, as well as providing the boost of much needed moisture for my skin. Shall we see how well this wash off mask worked for me?

[REVIEW] CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Toner

CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Toner Review

CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Toner Review:

I guess it is kind of obvious that I’m a fan of Dermatory products, considering this is the third product from them that I’m reviewing! Well I didn’t like the Dermatory sunscreen, but the emollient (emulsion) was great, and so I wanted to try the toner too. With dry and dehydrated skin, I’m always on the look out for hydrating watery toners. Dermatory markets this one as being good for sensitive skin and as being soothing. I wondered if it would be something similar to Etude House’s Soon Jung toner (which is great), as in ideal for when your skin is irritated.

It also has a short ingredient list and contains many interesting things – such as Ceramide NP, allantoin and a lot of extracts including centella, fig, honey and damask rose flower water. So, it sounded like another watery, hydrating toner with the added benefits of centella and ceramide! It also contains panthenol, like Etude House’s Soon Jung. Read on if you’re curious to see how hydrating and soothing this toner is!

Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream Review

Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream Review:

I first heard of Purito on an online forum, and at first the cute name sparked my interest but I didn’t think too much more about the brand. It was only when I was on the hunt for a new eye cream that I came across Purito again. It’s my habit to look up a bunch of products and then look at the ingredients and to see if there are any reviews about them too. I noticed that all the reviews I found raved about this eye cream and most people seemed to find it worked really well for them.

Naturally I wanted to try it as well, but it was only when I realized it had peptides and 49% centella asiatica that I finally decided to order it. It seemed to work well for other people at moisturizing their undereye area and I hoped it would work well for me too. Often, I find my sunscreen dries out the undereye area and causes fine lines (they only appear with some sunscreens) so I really want to find an eye cream that can combat this problem. Of course, it’s not something that can be resolved so quickly, but now that I’ve almost finished the tube I should be able to see some kind of result, right?

[REVIEW] Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream

Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream Review

Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Lately Cosrx seems to be on fire and releasing a lot of new products! Which honestly is quite exciting, because well I’ve always been a fan of their products. So, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to try this new product of theirs, I was instantly curious. Why was I instantly curious, you might wonder, well because of the name! Is it a toner or a cream? A mix of the two? Something like an emulsion? Well, these kinds of questions were going through my head, and honestly, I do like to try new products, especially those that I am curious about.

First of all, I wanted to find out what kind of product it was. The name is confusing to me, and well I wasn’t sure if I was getting a toner, emulsion or a cream. Apparently, this can be used as either a toner or a cream, depending on your skin type. To me that sounds bizarre, I mean how can a product really be either a cream or a toner? But I guess what Cosrx means is that if you have dry or dehydrated skin, you can use this product as a toner. But those with combination or oily skin can use it as a cream. Honestly though, I still must admit I am sceptical about how a product can be either a toner or a cream.

[REVIEW] Etude House Therapy Air White Flowers Sheet Mask

Etude House Therapy Air White Flowers Sheet Mask Review

Etude House Therapy Air White Flowers Sheet Mask Review:

When I first heard that Etude House had discontinued their old Etude House masks, I was quite disappointed because there were so many sheet masks I liked a lot (ginseng and rice). Because I was quite disappointed, I didn’t try the new air therapy masks for some time. When I did try them I must admit that I did like the way they felt and the effects of them. But because I still had many old masks, I wasn’t tempted to buy any until I saw they had new varieties – I’ll admit it was the cherry blossom that first interested me.

The new sheet masks came in a set of three varieties – cherry blossom, white flowers and madecassoside. The madecassoside mask has already been reviewed by Ana B. At first, I wasn’t at all interested in the white flowers mask, until I saw that it contains extracts from five different flowers and also contains niacinamide and liquorice extracts. Both are good for skin brightening. You could say that this mask was the one that I didn’t really notice or care about, until I actually looked closer at it. After all a sheet mask designed to brighten and moisturize sound really good to me.

[REVIEW] Mamonde Day Relief BB Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ Light Beige

Mamonde Day Relief BB Cream SPF 50 PA Light Beige Review

Mamonde Day Relief BB Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ Light Beige Review:

Mamonde is actually a brand that I don’t know much about, of course I’ve heard their name a lot but I still didn’t know much about them. I always think of their products having lots of floral components and concepts. I’ve also seen their name or products advertised in dramas, but usually when I’m watching a drama I don’t pay much attention to the products advertised. Lately I’ve been quite curious about their products and was debating which one to try until I saw that they had released a new line of BB creams.

They actually came out with three new BB creams, but I chose this one because according to Mamonde it is best suited for dry skin. Mamonde actually released these several months ago, but I was unsure if I should try this one or one of the other types. The fact that it comes in one shade – light beige, made me unsure too.

But the fact that it should be pink toned made me curious. All of the previous bb creams I’ve tried that are meant to have a pink undertone have been various shades of orange and yellow on me at least. So, you could say I partly tried this to see what kind of undertone it had and to see if it was also yellow/orange on me too. I was hopeful that Mamonde would prove me wrong and that I might even find a decent bb cream out of this experiment.
