[REVIEW] SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review:

Beauty trends may revolve and changes every now and then, including the star ingredients in beauty products. There were times when almost all brands suddenly developed products with snail mucin, aloe vera, galactomyces, etc. Looking back in 2018, I think centella asiatica is the star ingredient! So many beauty brands invented new products with centella asiatica in their formulation and it became one of the selling points. No wonder, centella asiatica (also known as tiger grass or ‘pegagan’) has been famous for generations as medication that soothes skin damages, hydrates, and reduces uneven skin tones.

With all the hype marketing, of course I fell into Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream when it was launched! I couldn’t find many reviews on this moisturizer because Skin1004 is more famous for its Madagascar Cenetella Asiatica ampoule and whenever I Googled, reviews for the ampoule popped up. From the few reviews I found, they said Skin1004 Cream is lightweight and non-sticky, so as a normal-to-oily skin bearer, I chose to go with it. A week later, Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream arrived to my house.

[REVIEW] BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I was always on the hunt for a good physical sunscreen, until now. It’s difficult to find one that doesn’t give a white cast and applies smoothly. Sadly, there isn’t a lot of options especially in the Korean beauty industry.

The ones I have tried in the American beauty industry either has too much white cast, is very thick, and is too expensive. While I was scrolling and doing my research on sunscreen, I came across this product. It is known to have Centella Asiatica and is physical sunscreen. So, I thought it would be a good candidate to try!

Goodal Quince Infused Honey Mild Sheet Mask Review:

I was not familiar with Goodal brand before, neither had I ever heard of it. I was shopping to fill my sheet masks stocks when suddenly came across this Goodal Quince Infused Honey Mild Sheet Mask, and decided to try one after seeing the affordable price. And, what is a ‘quince’ actually?

[REVIEW] HELLOSKIN JUMISO Water Splash Mask

HELLOSKIN JUMISO Water Splash Mask Review

HELLOSKIN JUMISO Water Splash Mask Review:

HELLOSKIN Jumiso itself has proclaimed quite a nice meaning toward the brand. In Korean, ‘ju’ (주다) means to give while ‘miso’ means smile, so literally ‘jumiso’ means to give smile. Or to make us smile, maybe? On the official website, HELLOSKIN Jumiso advertisement is like this : “Change your daily mask pack to our HELLOSKIN and put a big smile on your face. HELLOSKIN concentrates on the small things to create a big effect.”

Let’s be honest since the beginning. I’ve been eyeing the Jumiso sheet masks from quite a long time ago, but I had to restrain the desire to buy one. This brand has relatively higher price compared to we-all-know brands like Etude House, Nature Republic, The Face Shop, and so on. While I’m pretty satisfied with Etude House Air Therapy mask sheet, why should I buy other (more expensive) brands?

However, people say that “never let go of the things you can’t stop thinking about”. So I finally decided to buy two variants of Jumiso sheet masks; Jumiso Water-splash Sheet Mask and Jumiso First Skin-Lightening Sheet Mask. Besides these two, there are also Jumiso Rich Nourishment Sheet Mask, Jumiso Whoa Whoa Soothing Mask, and Jumiso Chewy Elasticity Sheet Mask that were launched together.

Cosrx Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream Review

Cosrx Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream Review:

I needed a new product as a moisturizer, since the one I was using was too heavy and made my skin very oily towards the end of the day. Coincidentally, I came across Morgan Stewart’s video where she talked about this product. Since I always trust her recommendations, I decided to place this item into the cart (with bunch of other items).

[REVIEW] KEEP COOL Ocean Intensive Hydrating Mask

KEEP COOL Ocean Intensive Hydrating Mask Review

KEEP COOL Ocean Intensive Hydrating Mask Review:

KEEP COOL is a Korean brand under Samsung Medicos, Co. Ltd. that might not be popular among the world. Well, at least I haven’t heard this brand before, until I accidentally found its account on Instagram. KEEP COOL managed to catch my eyes since it has soft, pastel-dominated colors and safe ingredients claims. Actually this ‘KEEP COOL and Ocean’ is one of their three skincare lines beside ‘KEEP COOL and Shine’ and ‘KEEP COOL and Soothe’. While I personally would rather try the ‘KEEP COOL and Shine’ line due to its target (for dull skin and brightening result), I only had the chance to try ‘KEEP COOL and Ocean’ line (whose target is for dry skin and moisturizing result). Not that I’m complaining, though, since KEEP COOL isn’t sold widely outside South Korea and I realize I might not have any chances to try their products again in the future. So, let’s check the review out!

KEEP COOL and Ocean Mask accentuates to have ‘Super-Thin Second Skin Sheet’ and contain ‘Nature Happiness Recipe’ (Seawater, Spirulina, Chlorella, Glasswort, and Green Confertii from deep coastal water). Thus, you might wonder what’s behind the brand, why ‘KEEP COOL’? Turns out one notable highlight is to be the ‘cool keeper’, since KEEP COOL always adds Scutellaria Baicalensis, Lonicerae Flos, and Forsythia Fruit that are well-known to have natural fever reducing effect that cools down skin and maintain best skin condition.

[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.
