The History of Whoo Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation #21 Review

The History of Whoo Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation #21 Review:

Normally I look at limited edition cushions and wonder why people would buy them. Until of course I saw pictures of this spring limited edition cushion. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the design at the first sight, yup it’s official I go crazy over cherry blossom (sakura) designs. Oops. At first, I resisted the urge to buy this, because it is certainly a luxury item and very pricey! It sat in my cart for a week while I decided whether to buy it or not.

In the end the design won me over, but also the fact that it came with a refill, and a loose powder sample made me decide to just buy it. I wouldn’t usually buy something this expensive and luxurious, but luckily, that week I got a bonus from my job so I was feeling rich enough to buy this. The fact that I got the bonus made me feel like it was a sign to buy this cushion. (Is it obvious I was looking for any excuse to buy this? Heh.) If you’re curious to see whether it is was worth it to buy this luxury limited edition cushion, keep reading…

[REVIEW] Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion SPF 40 / PA++

Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion SPF 40 PA++ Review

Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion SPF 40 / PA++ Review:

I have tried some other products from Klairs, (like the Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop & the Supple Preparation Facial Toner) and I am very satisfied with those. Klairs is a well known brand for sensitive skins, which already has my attention, and the luxurious ingredients in this formula totally made me give it a go.

[REVIEW] Nature Republic Provence Intensive Ampoule Foundation 01 Light Beige

Nature Republic Provence Intensive Ampoule Foundation 01 Light Beige Review

Nature Republic Provence Intensive Ampoule Foundation 01 Light Beige Review:

I went to Nature Republic near my place weeks ago and I saw this foundation. I never tried any of Nature Republic base product so I was kinda curious and wanted to try one. They have several type of foundations but the name of this foundation itself caught my attention.

From its name, seems the foundation contains ampoule which I believe is very beneficial for the skin. I love when base makeups used skin care ingredients so it’s like I got 2 benefits in one product. It also contain red ginseng, royal jelly, and propolis which is good for moisturizing and firming the skin.

The price is a little bit ‘up there’ but I think it’s fair that it costs more than their other foundations since it has good ingredients. Unfortunately, the shade range is very disappointing. It has only 2 shades option and both shades are so light. I think only very fair to light skinned people can use this foundation.

[REVIEW] Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Lip Balm

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Lip Balm Review

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Lip Balm Review:

I am a lip balm addict. Not because I love the look or anything, but because my lips are really dry and really sensitive – so I must always have something between my lips and the horrible pollution here in Seoul. Before I came here I just used lip balm to keep my lips moisturized, so anything would do really, but after coming here the pollution and the extremely dry winter weather really took a toll on my lips and allergies. Regardless, this cream has ceramide aaaaaand ato in the name! Of course my expectations are over 9000! But is it as good as it promises?

[REVIEW] Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask Review

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask was purchased by Cosme Perks.

It is my first mask from this luxury brand, Sulwhasoo. Well, who doesn’t know Sulwhasoo? This Korean premium brand is well known for its high performance skincare products using all natural ginseng and herbal ingredients. Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask itself is very popular on some beauty forums in my country (the First Care Activating Serum is also said to be a best-selling product from this brand). Almost all (or maybe all) of the reviewers give this mask a high rating. And I was so lucky to get a chance to test it by myself. Curiously, why a lot of people like this mask, I was so excited to give it a try.

The interesting claim from this Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask is about the JAUM Balancing Complex™, which is designed to improve skin balance. I guess I need to try this formula since I have an oily-combi skin. I have very dry patches on cheek area but my T-zone is very oily. Yes, I need to balance it, right? They also claim the essence of this mask was made by precious Korean herbal ingredients, and we all know that mostly Korean herbal products work very very well. But, is that true? Do not waste our time and let’s find out if I agree with those reviewers who give it a high score, or otherwise?

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence Review

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence Review:

I was searching for a first treatment essence to add in my routine and I stumbled upon this. I compared this to both SKII Treatment Essence and Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence and both are much more expensive for a newbie. So, I picked Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence thinking that if this is good for my routine, I can always upgrade.

[REVIEW] Soo Nature Spirulina Repair Eye Cream

Soo Nature Spirulina Repair Eye Cream Review

Soo Nature Spirulina Repair Eye Cream Review:

Spirulina! That weird thing even Miranda Kerr drinks. This product is the pride and joy of Soo Nature, they advertise it as if they were the only brand in the world to use it! And, honestly, they have a good reason to do that since in Korean Skincare there’s almost nothing out there that includes spirulina.

When it comes to Korean skincare, that is. I mean, French people do brag about how good it is, so why wouldn’t this brand? After using this cream for a long while, I have to say I understand why they do it. Did you try spirulina yet?

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Review

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Review:

I love chemical exfoliation. It truly has been a skincare routine game changer for me (I even rarely do physical exfoliation previously). This step has helped to even my skin tone, tackle pimples and pigmentations, gives a brighter complexion and smoother skin.

After discovering the wonderful world of chemical exfoliation, I began searching for more to try. I already have an AHA treatment in my routine, so I wanted to add in an exfoliating toner to be used in rotation with the treatment. And of course, I could not help but seeing people raving about The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution almost everywhere on Instagram. With the very affordable price tag, big size and low pH formula, of course I was so intrigued to give it go!

[REVIEW] Ryo Jayangyunmo Anti-hair Loss Shampoo (For Oily Scalp)

Ryo Jayangyunmo Anti-hair Loss Shampoo (For Oily Scalp) Review

Ryo Jayangyunmo Anti-hair Loss Shampoo (For Oily Scalp) Review:

I have been using Ryo Jayangyunmo Anti-hair Loss Shampoo from almost two months and I think I am good enough to write this review. If you remember my review of Ryo Jayangyunmo Anti Hair Loss Nutritive Treatment, then this is another product from the same line, it is Ryo Jayangyunmo Anti Hair Loss Shampoo. I bought this as a bundle when I repurchased the conditioner, and it was a good deal from the seller.

Ryo has some variants of Jayangyunmo Anti Hair Loss Shampoo to treat different scalp type; Normal-Dry Scalp, Oily Scalp and Sensitive Scalp. I was confused whether I should pick the oily or the sensitive one, but I ended up with the oily scalp shampoo..hhaha. As I get very good result from the conditioner, I expected this product would give a good result as well. Maybe when both of these products work together, they will give better result, right? Well, let’s see!
