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] Scinic Intensive Dual Mask Snail Solution

Scinic Intensive Dual Mask Snail Solution Review

Scinic Intensive Dual Mask Snail Solution Review:

To be honest, besides theirco famous Honey All in One Ampoule, Scinic never quite stayed on my personal radar. But after decent results with that product, when I got this sheet mask, it caught my interest as being a product formulated without the inclusion of hyaluronic acid/sodium hyaluronate and drying alcohols.

When I first started out in my skincare journey, I was personally wary of these two ingredients (particularly if they’re high up in the ingredients list), so seeing a sheet mask without them was intriguing. Adding in that this is a two-piece mask also adds to the intrigue, to be honest!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] VT Cosmetics BTS Collagen Pact BLACK 21

VT Cosmetics BTS Collagen Pact BLACK 21 Review

VT Cosmetics BTS Collagen Pact BLACK 21 Review:

It is not a new product but still be a best seller item on VT’s website. Hence, I guess it’s not too late to write this review now (though VT had just released other makeup collections last month, hehe). I think you already knew this product too. Yess, VT X BTS Collagen Pact (Black). A product that became crazily popular because it collaborated with BTS (Bangtan Boys), a South Korean boy band.

I didn’t notice this product because I was not familiar with VT Cosmetics (and I’m not an ARMY too). Moreover, in my country, this product is famous with its nickname ‘BTS Cushion’ (ha?!). I’m not sure what you call it in your country, but most of my friends call it BTS Cushion. Thus, I thought it’s just an usual bb cushion. But once I, accidentally, watched a video on YouTube and found out that it is a COLLAGEN pact, I immediately hunted it! Because I love collagen!

[REVIEW] The History of Whoo Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation #21

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…

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.

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.

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.
