[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.

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] VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige

VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review

VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review:

If you read my review about VT X BTS Black Collagen Pact, you probably know how much I love the product. Simply, since I’ve tried that foundation, I started to be a big fan of VT Cosmetics. I was attracted to try more, especially their base makeup. And one product that I kept eyeing was their Cica Redness Cover Cushion (seriously, I was like seeing my bias photo everytime I saw this product on my IG’s feeds, lol). And I finally got my cushion about a month ago, so I think I am good enough to write this review for you. They have 3 shades and I purchased the darkest one, number 23 (Natural Beige). The others are number 13 (Vanilla Beige) and 21 (Light Beige).

Ah, in case you haven’t known yet, VT Cosmetics launched Cica X Care line in the middle of 2018. This line consists of skincare and makeup products that have Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica) as their main ingredients. You know, this ingredient got very popular recently as it is able to treat acne and sensitive skin very well.

Aside from the main ingredient that would be perfect for my sensitive and acne prone skin, there was also another thing that intrigued me to try this cushion. A thing that makes this cushion looks very unique. What’s that? Mmm, keep reading please!

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?

[REVIEW] A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule

A'pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review

A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review:

It starts with the name. It’s as simple as it is. We like cool and creative names but, let’s face it, it’s more practical to call a product by what it is! For example, you wouldn’t say “Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack” all the time, you would just say “Benton Centella Mask” or something.

With this name there is no going wrong. I also like the design, which matches the collection completely. And the simple promise of skin protection. But does the A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule perform as well as it sells?

COSRX AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild Review

COSRX AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild Review:

Recently COSRX released a new range of skincare products called the AC Collection for acne-prone skin and this seem pretty good to be true. As someone who has always been combating with acne-prone skin, this seem like a godsend. With a name like “Calming Liquid Mild”, this particular product stood out to me from the Cosrx AC Collection.

Not only that, since I was also looking to replace my previous toner that is COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner. I was searching for something that would be more moisturizing. Before purchasing, I usually do some online research to find out more about the ingredients and check if it is appropriate for my skin type. Did this product live up to my expectations? Here is my review on the Calming Liquid Mild toner.

It's Skin Tiger Cica Calming Serum Review

It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming Serum Review:

Rated quite highly on Hwahae (currently 4.43/5 stars) and not seeing it as readily available locally as the brand’s other lines at the time, I was excited to get my hands on the It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming Serum when I traveled to Seoul early last year. And despite some initial hesitation, the sales assistant managed to convince me enough to warrant a buy (also helps that this specific line was on sale!); but, did it live up to my expectations?

COSRX AC Collection Calming Foam Cleanser Review

COSRX AC Collection Calming Foam Cleanser Review:

Cosrx is a cult favorite. Of course no exceptions, I’ve been converted into a fan of Cosrx for a while ever since I switched over to the brand. Their products has really helped to heal my breakout that I was suffering from due to stress and all. Not only that it’s quite affordable!

Recently, I ran out of cleanser and was looking to replace my Good Morning Low ph Gel cleanser. While searching, I saw that Cosrx released a new AC Collection targeting acne-prone skin.Since, I was in need of a new cleanser so I decided to get it.

Is this going to top the most-raved about Good Morning Low ph Gel cleanser as the next HG? I researched online but couldn’t find much reviews on it. But since it is a line that targets acne-prone skin it should be good right?

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum Review

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum Review:

SOME BY MI was really a hit in 2018. Their 30 Days Miracle Line was very popular due to the amazing claim of repairing skin condition in 30 days. The 30 Days Miracle Line consists of bar soap, toner, serum, and cream. I didn’t give any serious attention to the brand until I almost ran out of my The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. I was looking for an affordable serum, with safe ingredients, which can help with the appearance of my pores. My nose and cheek pores are wide open, with some visible blackheads T_T

I did my searching online and found that one way to reduce the pores’ appearance is by using AHA or BHA to clear whiteheads and blackheads. Thus, SOME BY MI AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum grabbed my attention since it contains AHA, BHA, PHA as chemical exfoliator and Tea Tree & Centella Asiatica Extract to help soothing the skin and taming acne.
