The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review

The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review:

I’ve been using The Saem’s Pink sun cream for almost a year now, and you can say that while I’ve grown bored of it, it’s still the one sunscreen that I always reach for. Earlier this year when I went to order it, I noticed that The Saem had a couple of different sunscreens, ones that I had never seen before, namely this green sun cream. Naturally, I looked it up and found that the ingredients looked very similar to the pink one.

Because I find the pink one a bit drying in winter, I wondered whether the green version would be more moisturizing and better for winter than the pink version. I decided to try the green version out after noticing that titanium dioxide was higher up in the ingredients list than in the pink version. Mostly I just decided to try it out because I was feeling bored with the pink version of the sunscreen.

JAYJUN Real Water Brightening Black Cream Review:

I came upon this cream while browsing on Yestyle, and decided to give it a try since it was on sale. I’ve had a good history with Jayjun’s sheet masks so I was curious as to whether their skincare line was just as good.

[REVIEW] Guerisson 9 Complex Moisture Balancing Cream

Guerisson 9 Complex Moisture Balancing Cream Review

Guerisson 9 Complex Moisture Balancing Cream Review:

Horse oil was one of the ingredients that I never wished to ever use on my skin. However, after using a routine with multiple steps that never seemed to help my skin, I got to the point where I decided to just try horse oil and see if it would help my skin. It felt like I could never find a moisturizer that was heavy enough for my skin, or a routine that actually did something.

So almost a year ago, I decided to reset my routine and so I cut everything out of it except my sunscreen and the Guerisson 9 Complex cream. It was risky, considering I never had tried the cream before and I was replacing a ten-step routine with two items. I expected my skin to look even worse that before, but what surprised me was that my skin looked no worse (and no better) but considering I was only use two items it was still surprising to me.

After that I slowly introduced a few new products, and what I found was that the Guerisson 9 Complex cream was the best cream I had ever used (despite me not wanting to use horse oil… heh). It was actually heavy enough for my skin and perfect, and my skin looked the best it had looked in years. Anyway, so that was the original 9 complex cream. When I was using my second jar of it I looked at the Guerisson website and found out that they had reformulated and the cream and added a new cream to the line-up. I was honestly a bit upset, but also curious to find out about the new cream.

The new Guerisson 9 Complex cream is the one in this review – the Moisture Balancing cream. The other two creams (the original one and the ginseng one) had the formula’s changed slightly although I’m not sure what has been changed. I never intended to try the moisture balancing cream, but as I said I was curious about it, so I looked up to see what was different from the regular one. Well it turned out that instead of just horse oil this one contains five types of ceramides! If that doesn’t sound like heaven for dry and dehydrated skin, I don’t know what would. Plus, I found out this one was designed for dehydrated skin, so honestly it sounded so perfect that I just had to try it out.

Missha Flash Up Sun SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Missha Flash Up Sun SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

My skin has recently been the driest it’s ever been, and luckily enough it happened just around the time that Missha launched their Flash Up Sun line. All the other sunscreens I own became too drying and matte for me, and the Flash Up Sun sunscreen was marketed as a glowy finish, so naturally I had to pick it up (and not to mention the packaging is super pretty too!)

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review:

Moonshot is a brand I’ve always been interested in due to its chic, sleek and often minimalist aesthetic. If I remember correctly, I first heard of the brand due to its popular Jelly Pots, which were raved about by various beauty bloggers a few years back. However, due to scarcity in local stores (I often prefer to swatch makeup products beforehand) and their products’ often mid-high price tag, I eventually just shrugged the urge off.

However, when a flagship Moonshot store opened up locally and later held a number of products on sale, I decided to give in and ended up getting myself one of their cushions as I was coincidentally running out of base makeup. So, how did the Microfit Cushion – or also known as the “GD/G-Dragon Cushion” hold up in humid climate?

[REVIEW] Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

The summer season in Hong Kong means extreme heat and humidity — not the best conditions for my oily and acne-prone skin. It also makes skincare and makeup application a bit of a challenge — it’s always a race to put my “face” on before I start sweating it off. When I found out that Moonshot was coming out with a primer that claimed to not only make makeup last longer but also provide strong UV protection, I knew I had to give it a go.

I have tried a few Moonshot makeup products in the past and haven’t been disappointed, so I had high hopes for their newly-released Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF 50+ PA+++.

[REVIEW] Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review:

Scinic is well known for their Honey all in one ampoule, and it’s an ampoule that many people enjoy using, so naturally when Scinic came out with three new ampoules I was curious to see how they would compare to the old ones. They actually came out in 2017 so they aren’t that new (oops) but it seems that not many people have tried them or written about them. The new (ceramide, centella and vitamin c) ampoules are larger (300ml) than the honey, aqua and snail ones, and also come with a pump which makes them more convenient to use.

I couldn’t resist buying (and trying) this ceramide ampoule when I found out it also contained shea butter. I’ve always been looking for products that contain both of these things because I think it sounds like a good combination. The fact that there were no reviews made me a bit nervous but in the end I just decided to try it out, even if it was a bit of a risky purchase. Read on to see if my risky purchase was a good or bad idea.

Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask Review

Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask Review:

Polatam is a brand I’ve frequently seen around and heard about, but due to the price tag, have always been wondering about from afar. Claimed to be created by Park Tam Hee, an acclaimed Korean actress with a keen knowledge of beauty and skincare, the Polatam skincare range definitely caught my eye more due to its chic packaging more than anything.

Overall very clean and classy, with interesting notable ingredients thrown about, I was definitely excited when I was gifted a couple of masks from this range to try out. But the question remains: does the quality/experience reflect its price tag?

Kikumasamune Sake Skin Lotion High Moist Review

Kikumasamune Sake Skin Lotion High Moist Review:

It is said that in the past, Geisha used the leftover sake of their clients as a beauty product, to soften and brighten their skin tone.

The company that produces this lotion is the Kiku-Masamune Sake Brewing Co., Ltd., a very popular sake company in Japan founded in 1659. According to the company, sake has beneficial effects for the skin, giving the skin luster and preventing aging. This lotion, released in 2013 contains not only sake, but a pretty impressive list of ingredients.

After I found out about this product, I knew I had to have it.

Sake? On my skin? Let’s see how it went.
