Tiam My Signature C Source Review:

I have, for nearly 2 years now, been incorporating a vitamin C serum in both my daily and nightly skincare routine. However, the serum(s) that I used only contained a 5% maximum concentration of vitamin C and it was quite expensive for a small amount. I did more research in the blogosphere and finally decided to give this much talked about serum a shot. This baby here contains a 20% concentration of vitamin C and was much cheaper! You don’t have to tell me twice. On the day it arrived, I started using it and have been very happy with the results.

This product used to be known as the O.S.T. C20 serum and Tiam (the company that produces the serum) is part of the Cosrx family. Now, I have a lot of faith in the entire Cosrx products line and so unsurprisingly, this blind faith extended to Tiam as well. I was not disappointed. This faint citrus scented serum has become my favourite part of my skincare routine, not only because I love the smell of oranges but mainly because it has actually helped lighten some of the scarring I had from blemishes around my chin area (the result of being a woman and suffering through hormonal blemishes during that time of the month).

Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Wrinkle Up Spot Review:

When I was in Seoul during the summer, I must have spent all my life savings in Myeongdong on K-beauty products (kidding….or am I?). I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and try some brands that I normally would not have even thought of purchasing. Nature Republic was one of those brands, mainly because they were everywhere and also because the salesperson was handing out sample sheet masks outside the store….I am a major sucker for freebies. I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and try some brands that I normally would not have even thought of purchasing.

One of their bestsellers was the Ginseng Royal Silk range. I bought a few products from that range but the one I started using first was the Wrinkle Up Spot. The saleslady told me that this product was good for removing wrinkles especially under the eyes and smile lines around the mouth. The main ingredient in this product is gold (99%) which promotes blood circulation and has a brightening effect. Perfect for dark circles! This product also contains ginseng for revitalization of the skin, silk compounds for cell regeneration and royal jelly which again, has brightening properties as well as helps to keep the skin firm and supple. “Sold!” – I thought to myself. Give me a tube of that golden ginseng goodness!

Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb Review:

This was a cream I have been wanting to try for ages as I have read a lot of flattering reviews of Belif and my friend has been swearing up and down that Belif is the reason for her blemish-free complexion. This cream is more of a lightweight gel moisturiser and great for those with oily / combination skin.

Belif claims to have re-created a formula whereby this cream acts like an explosion of a water bomb to relieve the skin from modern age daily pollutants. As it is of a gel consistency, it dries relatively quickly on the skin – good for those mornings when you are in a rush to get out of the house and need to apply your makeup at breakneck speed.

Leejiham LJH Vita Propolis Ampoule Review:

This teeny bottle of golden nectar has fast become a must-have in my daily routine. It contains 50% propolis extract to help achieve the “dewy glow”. If you watch as many K-dramas as I do, you will know the look I am referring to *cough* Jun Ji Hyun. It also contains multi vitamins (B3, B5, C), Centella Asiatica, Sea Buckthorn and Witch Hazel extract to help calm irritation / redness, minimise the appearance of pores and delay anti-aging. This little bottle just keeps on giving!

I was surprised to discover that LJH actually operates a chain of professional dermatology clinics in Korea (suddenly their “Beauty is Clever” tagline makes more sense) and the Vita Propolis range is one of the 6 product ranges of cosmeceuticals on their website.

Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum Review:

As I have enlarged pores dotting my nose (urgh!), I am constantly on the lookout for any product that claims to tighten pores / shrink pores / refine pores / make pores less visible….you get the gist. So I was quite excited when I read about this serum which in my mind would function exactly as how a corset would and tighten my unsightly pores.
