[REVIEW] NIOD Flavanone Mud

NIOD Flavanone Mud Review

NIOD Flavanone Mud Review:

I was on the lookout for a mud mask that is strong but at the same time wont dry out my skin. I had my share of coming across mud masks that sucked the moisture out of my skin, and that was not pleasant at all. Some are gentle enough, but didn’t really get the job done.

I kept seeing NIOD Flavanone Mud popping up on Instagram, which definitely has piqued my interest. NIOD (which stands for Non Invasive Options in Dermal Science) is a brand that is under Deceim, the same parent company as The Ordinary. However NIOD’s price range is higher than The Ordinary. So I started reading up online reviews about Flavanone Mud and decided that this mask definitely fit the bill of what I was looking for.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension + 2% HA Spheres

The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension + 2% HA Spheres Review

The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension + 2% HA Spheres Review:

When talking about anti-aging skincare ingredients, vitamin C is definitely one of the most popular and effective ingredients that we can incorporate in our routine. It is packed with antioxidant, helps with skin ageing, aids in lightening pigmentations as well as overall brightening of the skin complexion.

My first ever vitamin C product was the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop. The reason I chose this product is because I wanted a gentle vitamin C formula to introduce to my skin. After 6 months of using it, I felt like I was ready to move on to a stronger and more potent formula to tackle some pigmentation. And after reading lots of reviews, I decided to choose The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension for its stable formula and the unbeatable price point.

But a lot of people complained aboout the product’s texture and strong stinging sensation they get from this. Some even reacted badly towards this! So lets see if my experience and opinion as others are the same or not.

[REVIEW] Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner

Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner Review

Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner Review:

One of the skincare steps that I feel has made a lot of difference for my dry skin is definitely the hydrating toner step. And I love using Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner for that purpose.

But of course being a skincare junkie, I couldn’t help but felt intrigued to try out Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner after looking at the short and clean ingredients list (only 8 ingredients!), reading positive reviews all over Instagram, and even the skincare guru Gothamista raved highly about it. And with that gorgeous packaging that is such an eye candy just made me weak in the knee, I simply could not resist getting the toner!

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution Review

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution Review:

The Ordinary brand has made a huge wave in the skincare industry for its super affordable products, and every skincare addict would own at least one The Ordinary item. I wanted to jump on The Ordinary bandwagon as well (don’t want to miss out on the hype, now do we?), but I was overwhelmed with all of the products! I didn’t even know where to start looking. I did not want to go with the cult favourite just because of the rave.

I wanted to get something that I really need in my routine. So I started evaluating my skin concerns and it seems like I already have the products to address those issues, except for a spot treatment that I have yet to find one that actually works. I don’t exactly have acne problem but of course I do get occassional clogged pores and hormonal breakouts when it is the time of the month. Therefore I decided to jump on The Ordinary bandwagon starting with the Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, which also happens to be my first ever BHA product.

[REVIEW] Pixi Peel & Polish

Pixi Peel & Polish Review

Pixi Peel & Polish Review:

After dipping my toe into the world of Pixi Beauty, starting with the cult favourite Pixi Glow Tonic, I became very much interested in trying out more of their products. And the next product that caught my eye was the Pixi Peel & Polish.

Pixi Peel & Polish is a resurfacing concentrate mask, which contains 6% lactic acid, papaya fruit extract and sugar cane extract. It also has tiny granules in it that can act as a gentle physical exfoliator. I’ve stopped using physical exfoliants for a long time, but I was very much interested to incorporate lactic acid into my skincare routine (I have tried glycolic and mandelic acid previously), and this product seems gentle and intriguing enough for me to not to give it a try.

So, do I end up loving this Pixi Peel & Polish, or otherwise? Lets find out.

After trying one of Cremorlab’s masks previously, which was the Herb Tea Pure Calming Mask, I was left quite a disappointed. And that made me a little hesitant to try another mask from them.
