[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!

[REVIEW] 2019 NEW Missha Time Revolution Night Repair PROBIO Ampoule

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule Review

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This ampoule and I have a history! I was a part of the test group for those percentages you see on advertisements, but it was a blind testing and we didn’t even know the brand. As soon as I received it, just by smelling, I knew it was a Missha ampoule. Maybe I used a lot of them already?

They didn’t tell us it was a night ampoule, so I used it during the day too. Eventually the product was released, and they revealed the name of the blind product. Of course I was so excited to be a part of it, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to review it I didn’t hesitate (I didn’t even check the price) because I was already so in love with it.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla

Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla Review

Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla was purchased by Cosmeperks.

We all know that Korea makes some of the best cushions, whether it’s a sponge cushion, mesh cushion, or even a pact type of cushion. Even some luxury brand like YSL and Lancome make their cushion foundations in Korea. Until these days, cushion is still really popular because of its practicality and most of them have dewy finish which make our skin looks twice healthier and better in real life.

I’m not a huge fan of sponge cushion because somehow that type of cushion often break apart on my oily-combination skin faster than any other foundations but I do love mesh and pact cushion! They usually stay longer on me and they don’t emphasis my skin texture.

One day, Nigama offered me to try the newest cushion from Etude, the Skin Glow Essence Cushion and I’m pretty excited to see that it has a mesh type. It also contains essence and I really love base product with skincare in it (until now the Double Lasting Serum Foundation is still in list of my favorite foundations).

It’s a new product from Etude so you may have a bit difficulty in finding this product but no worry, there are some well-known online stores who ship internationally or you can get it directly from Etude House global official website.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer 03 Cola Pop Review

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer 03 Cola Pop Review:

I’m a big fan of bold lip colors, but am not a fan of the extremely cracked lips that they often leave me with. Clinique’s Pop collection has been receiving a lot of love from their Cheek Pop blushers (especially in South Korea!) to these Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipsticks. The lipsticks come in an impressive range of shades from bright pinks to moody nudes to deep burgundies – you will definitely find (at least) one that tickles your fancy. But are they worth the hype?

AHC Ultimate Real Eye Cream for Face Review

AHC Ultimate Real Eye Cream for Face Review:

Even though I live in Korea, I actually got this product in Macau when I “decided” to go there without eye cream or eye cream samples. They have amazing beauty stores there, most of them with both Korean and Japanese beauty not at local prices but still at really good prices.

My friend recommended this to me and of course I grabbed it, it was tiny and a well-known brand so it felt perfect. I won’t tell you everything I feel about it right now, but I will tell you I definitely want to try their other stuff.

[REVIEW] Nature Republic Snail Solution Skin Booster

Nature Republic Snail Solution Skin Booster Review

Nature Republic Snail Solution Skin Booster Review:

I must admit I am one of Nature Republic’s loyal customers because of EXO (apparently, they endorsed Nature Republic products) and while I was curiously scanning their store as to what products they offer, I stumbled across this gem. I am already familiar with the benefits of Snail Secrete and how it is widely used as a remedy for tons of common skin problems. And as one with a stubbornly oily and acne prone skin, I was very hopeful with this product.

[REVIEW] Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream

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] SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream

SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review

SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review:

I’ve never thought that using an eye cream is crucial before. For me, it’s just a secondary, even tertiary needs. I personally thought that having enough sleep is the best cure for tired, puffy eyes with dark circles. It’s the same with eye wrinkles – no one could stop your aging skin, including the usage of eye creams. However, those ‘immature’ thoughts were when I still had no problems with my around-eyes skin. I’ve always had dark circles due to sleeping habits since high school era, so it didn’t bother me. But approximately earlier this year, I found some fine eye wrinkles and I panicked! I was only mid 20s and I’m having wrinkles? Uh, a big no!

I realized and decided that I should treat my around-eye skin better. Of course I should repair my sleeping habits, but I guess using outside treatment is gonna help too. Then, I decided to try SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream.

Why SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream out of many eye creams? First, I’ve tried the SECRET KEY Starting Treatment line before (Starting Treatment Essence and Starting Treatment Cream) and both of them worked very well on me. I believe their galactomyces content is somehow works compatible with my skin.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++  was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I was very excited to first hear of a sun cream specific for winter, and even more so when I saw it had a super high SPF. Everyone, and that includes “skin care gods” like Koreans, thinks they are safe in the winter, that the sun will not get them. Here in Korea it’s especially difficult to recognize the difference between a cloudy day or a polluted day – unless you are sensitive, asthmatic, or have an app that gives you air notifications.

So whereas I accept that in cloudy days people may be deceived into thinking the sun “is okay”, here we have more polluted days than cloudy ones. And in the dry winter how can I use the anti-sebum sun creams I use in the summer?

So with a sun cream for this especially difficult season, of course it spiked my interest. Weirdly enough it isn’t as popular here as I thought it would be!
