MIZON Water Volume EX First Essence Hydra Tox Review

MIZON Water Volume EX First Essence Hydra Tox Review:

A quite long product name, isn’t it? Well, the long name clearly states this product’s focus on moisturizing while having watery texture. Personally, I didn’t pay any attention to this product’s full name before buying it. Since this MIZON Water Volume EX First Essence Hydra Tox was on sale while I was window-online-shopping and I ran out of my previous first essence, Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence, I decided to buy this without thinking twice. Typically a woman, really. Tee-hee. It was only after the first usage that I read this product’s claim, which indirectly targets the dry-skin bearers. Oops, did I just make a wrong choice?

[REVIEW] Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Review

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Review:

If I could associate a single word to Blithe Cosmetics, it would be INNOVATION. This brand does not carry the typical skin care products most people are familiar with. In fact, when I first encountered the brand and their products, I was utterly clueless. Blithe is a brand that caters to people living a busy lifestyle in an urban setting. Hence, most of their products aim to address skin concerns brought about by pollution, such as fine dust, in a manner that is both efficient and enjoyable.

Honestly speaking, I haven’t tried a lot of their products because they are a bit on the pricier spectrum. The one and only product I have from them is the one I’m reviewing today – the Blithe Patting Splash Mask in the variant Energy Yellow Citrus and Honey. I got this patting mask as a part of a curated box from an Asian Beauty website which is basically a set of products from different brands sold at a much cheaper price than their retail value.

It actually took months before I opened this up because, as I’ve mentioned earlier, I was clueless as to what it is and what it does. After doing a bit of research and finding out what an amazing product this actually is, I immediately dived in for a splash (get it?) and never looked back.

I’m already halfway into using up this bottle so I think I can now share my honest opinion on this.

[REVIEW] Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum Review

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum Review:

SOME BY MI was really a hit in 2018. Their 30 Days Miracle Line was very popular due to the amazing claim of repairing skin condition in 30 days. The 30 Days Miracle Line consists of bar soap, toner, serum, and cream. I didn’t give any serious attention to the brand until I almost ran out of my The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. I was looking for an affordable serum, with safe ingredients, which can help with the appearance of my pores. My nose and cheek pores are wide open, with some visible blackheads T_T

I did my searching online and found that one way to reduce the pores’ appearance is by using AHA or BHA to clear whiteheads and blackheads. Thus, SOME BY MI AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum grabbed my attention since it contains AHA, BHA, PHA as chemical exfoliator and Tea Tree & Centella Asiatica Extract to help soothing the skin and taming acne.

[REVIEW] Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask

Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask Review

Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask Review:

I will come right out and say it: I’m not sure I buy this whole priming mask thing. But I am very intrigued by it being a quick mask that is done in up to five minutes, and that is an enough selling point for me! Of course I will be judging it also regarding the priming abilities and it better surprise me because if it has priming in the name I expect it to do as much of a good job as my priming sun cream. At least.

[REVIEW] PINK BY PURE BEAUTY So Smooth Pudding Cream

PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream Review

PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream Review:

Well, an unfamiliar product name and brand, isn’t it? I don’t know if you ever heard about this product, but I never knew ‘PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream’ was sold by my usual Korean products’ sellers. Despite its label of ‘Made in Korea’, I found it widely promoted in Watsons Malaysia.

It comes with a big family of PINK BY PURE BEAUTY; pink pore toner, pore perfection peeling pads, pink pore foam cleanser, pink skin so glow essence, and many more. They caught my attention due to their soft pink-and-black packaging and various range of products, so I decided to give ‘PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream’ a try after spreading the tester on the back of my hand.

Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad Review

Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad Review:

This review has been a long time coming since I first bought it when it first launched in Seoul earlier this year. Unfortunately, as this tub is quite bulky and I couldn’t bring it with me on some trips, it led to inconsistent use, so I allowed ample time for me to use it consistently before I decided to finally sit down and offer my thoughts on this raved about product. I’m not one to give in to much hype, but when I was caught up in the “cica craze”, this product seemed like a total must have product, what with its claims and nice ingredients list. But, did it live up to my expectations?

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review:

Ah, I remember I was still a newbie in skincare when I first purchased this product. After ditching those pesky physical scrubs, strengthening my basic routine and used (and also got bored of) konjac sponge, I decided to jump into the world of chemical exfoliations.

Of course, before jumping in, I read a lot of stuff. I wanted to try AHA first to get rid of my acne scars and to brighten my complexion and all the other stuff AHA is supposed to do. After reading and researching a lot about AHA, I decided to try mandelic acid as it is considered suitable for a newbie like me. And after further research, I found this product, AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% and it is easy to get at the nearby drugstore in my area. I kinda don’t want to wait which is why I decided not to buy it online, haha.

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review:

Admittedly, I always tend to stray away from most hyped up things in fear of being disappointed and/or underwhelmed. Hence, the main reason why I’m only now offering up a review for one of The Ordinary’s various skincare products; this in particular being a destashed item from my friend as she found it to not work for her (allergic reactions, irritation, etc). Thinking that it’d be worth a try considering my penchant for anything targeting pigmentation issues (arbutin is a well-known skin brightening agent!), I decided to put it to the test. Would the YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) rule ring true?

Nature Republic Real Comforting Mask Sheet AHA BHA Review

Nature Republic Real Comforting Mask Sheet AHA/BHA Review:

I bought a couple of this collection’s masks literally because the packages look so simple and pretty. And then I read each of the available types (hyaluronic acid, aha/bha, madecassoside, vitamin E, vitamin C, ceramide, tea tree, pantenol, allantoin, collagen) and regret not buying one of each. I mean, they sure do sound wonderful, right?

I used a BHA toner once, and loved it and keep wanting to insert it back into my routine, so I thought of using this mask first. Will it be up to standard? Yes. Yes it will!
