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!

JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black Review

JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black Review:

Compared to the sheet masks from other brands, JM Solution’s are relatively higher in price, especially in my country that has no JM Solution official stores yet. So don’t be surprised to find that the price is two-times higher than Nature Republic, The Face Shop, or Etude House.

JM Solution’s actually a short for ‘Journey to Miracle Solution’ – which is a good way to advertise its claim. I’ve found mask sheets from JM Solution quite attractive since it has a minimalist, classy design on the packaging which suits my personal preference. Moreover, JM Solution also provides a lot of varieties with their own unique main ingredients! It took me quite some time to decide among Lacto Saccharomyces Golden Mask, Centella Madecca Capsule Mask, Water Luminous S.O.S Ringer Mask and more, but finally made up my mind to buy JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black. More because the cocoon component; so please don’t disappoint me!

[REVIEW] Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spot Serum

Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spot Serum Review

Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spot Serum Review:

I needed a good Vitamin C serum that would help me with my hyperpigmentation. I usually use Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop, but it seemed like it wasn’t doing much for me. I wanted to make sure that it was a serum type that was easy to use.

I didn’t want the hassle of worrying about the discoloration and having to put it into the refrigerator. When I saw this product online, I was aware of the hype. Many people talked endlessly about how great and effective this product was. Which brought me to the question, is it worth the hype?

Naturie Hatomugi Skin Conditioner Toner Review:

I’ve been wanting to try this product for so long! It’s one of the products in my wishlist. So when it’s on sale (and just so you know, my current toner is almost finishing), I purchased it.

My first thought after receiving this toner was “Wow, this bottle is so big! But so cheap!” It is cheap, and bigger than any other toners that I have tried before.

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 2 Step Mask Review

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 2 Step Mask Review:

With the centella/cica hype booming so suddenly the past couple of years, I started to see this brand everywhere, with the centella ampoule as its main breakout star. But while I’ve not had the chance to try that product from Skin1004, I think this 2-step mask would be a decent gauge of how this product line would work for me. So, let’s see, shall we?

IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream Review

IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream Review:

Wow, finally this IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream arrived to my hands! Honestly I’d been eyeing this product for quite some time before decided to buy this at the end. While the first IUNIK products I heard was the serum (Black Snail Restore Serum, Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum, Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum, and Tea Tree Relief Serum), unfortunately I had to turn a blind eye to it since I still had a stack of serum stocks, even when I thought that their claims were pretty interesting. In the other hand, I was running out of my daily moisturizer so I eventually braced myself to buy a moisturizer from IUNIK instead.

I was in serious contemplation since the product name is IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream. I always preferred to use light skincare products due to my normal-to-oily skin type, but a lot of reviews praised IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream ability to perfectly moisturize and give nutrition to the skin. Moreover, the fact I have to work in a room with heavy blow of air conditioner everyday also one of my considerations. I doubt this product, as a gel cream, would give the perfect moisture to my skin. In due course, my curiosity won and I took the liberty to have a go at IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream.

IUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum Review

IUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum Review:

Snail Mucin is one of the most popular ingredients in Korean cosmetics. On its basis, cosmetic brands produce gels, creams, masks, serums and etc. For myself, to get acquainted with this magical ingredient, I chose a serum from the brand iUNIK.

The brand’s philosophy is to produce products that are ideal for the skin using natural ingredients. Agree, it sounds very tempting) The brand does not have a large number of products in its lineup. That is why I want to believe that all their products will be well formulated and will help in the fight for beautiful skin.

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45PA+++ Review

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45/PA+++ Review:

If I’m not mistaken, in 2018, Missha repackaged their sunscreen line, giving them a more minimalist face lift. And while I’m not entirely sure if some of them were reformulated, I’ve checked the ingredients for this one, only to spot no difference – or none too drastic, at least. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this review, shall we?
