Hada Labo Koi-Gokujyun UV White Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ | Review

Hada Labo Koi-Gokujyun UV White Gel Review:

Hada Labo is the first skincare line that I purchased when I started my Asian Beauty (AB) journey. At that time, I was looking for something that moisturizes and hydrates, and Hada Labo instantly pops up as they are well-known for their Super Hyaluronic Acid. I ended up buying their cleanser, their famous hydrating lotion, a moisturizer and also this UV White Gel.

Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask Shea Butter Review

I have been a fan of Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze sheet masks but this ingredient was so different for me, in a sense that, would I want shea butter on my face too besides slathering it all over my body?! Let’s see how this extremely nourishing sheet mask went on my skin!

Itibiti Yogurt Mask Pack review

Itibiti Yogurt Mask Pack Review:

I bought Itibiti Yogurt Mask Pack because I see yogurt mask packs everywhere, and I love the yogurt they claim to copy, so I want to try all of them. Now, some of them are super expensive and some of them are super affordable. Like this one, for example, you can buy it in the convenience store one for 1000 KRW (under 1$) and a pack of five for 5000 KRW (under 5$). So, I got myself a pack of five, and indulge myself in yogurt.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Review

Snail mucus and bee venom are known for their anti-bacterial and healing properties. Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask works wonderfully well for acne prone and troubled skin. The two main ingredients may sound exotic and bit scary but this sheet mask is gentle and does not sting in any way!

Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack | Review

Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack Review

Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack Review:

I’ve been an avid anime fan since Heidi first played on Portuguese television, and was aware of what Japanese animation was. That was so many years ago! Of course, as a fan, I also fell for Pokemon when the time came. And for someone who fell for Asian beauty (and this part I’m sure you understand) I saw the new collection and simply had to have it! I bought all the products I wanted as they came out, but for some reason I missed this one!

I just happened to be walking by on some-day-afternoon and saw this Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack (imagine how shocked I was), of course I bought it on impulse. At first look it seems like the black masks going around the internet, the ones who peel off your black pores. And reading the description it clearly says it cleans the pores. So yay! I got it and let’s start! This was literally the first time I used a peel off pack, so I’ll walk you through it.

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream | Review

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream Review

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream Review:

Nature Republic is a brand that is close to my heart. I’ve considered it as safe-buy brand for I’ve never experienced breakout with any of their products I’ve tried so far. I also think that their price range is decent although some line could be very expensive but generally prices are okay, not too cheap that you would doubt efficacy.

I first encountered Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream few years ago when I was looking for something to give my mom after my trip to Korea. She was crazy about moisturizers so I bought couple of jars to gift her and she really liked it. I didn’t get one for myself because I honestly don’t find the need of moisturizing. It is only recently that felt the need to take care of my skin better because… okay, I’m not getting any younger. Let’s see the verdict.

Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon | Review

Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon Review

During puberty, I was lucky enough to have an acne-free face. I do, however, suffer from having a very dull skin. My face may be blemish free yet I feel that something is really wrong with it. A friend once suggested me to use astringent to remove the dead skin but I was really hesitant because I feel that it is way too harsh on skin. 10 years later and I still wear this dull-looking face; still have this negative perception towards peeling. To address this issue, I am in constant search for products that could alleviate my skin condition in a gentle yet effective way. From sugar scrubs to peeling gels –where some are effective and most are just meh; now I am giving this Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon a shot, because why not?

Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence Review

Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence Review:

I remember it well when I first encountered essence –it was in the summer of 2013 that I went to South Korea to spend my Holy Week vacation. My best friend and I were shopping for BB Creams (Yes, it was the talk of the town around that time!) and you know how Koreans are so generous, they take their GWP’s very seriously. I ended up coming home with a bunch of essence samples! Initially, I thought essence is pretty much like moisturizer.

I had to do some research to understand the art of Korean skincare and it sure did take some time for me to embrace THE CONCEPT. Admittedly, I’ve been using one on and off since then. It is only recently that I am being obsessed to achieve that chok chok skin. I want my essence to have a brightening effect not simply moisturizing. I was in search for one but I don’t really want to spend that much for a product, hey I can be frugal sometimes. COSRX is a brand that I can get my hands on easily and definitely won’t burn my pocket so I tried their Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence.

Nature Republic Rose Real Nature Ampoule | Review

Nature Republic Rose Real Nature Ampoule Review

Nature Republic Rose Real Nature Ampoule Review:

Nature Republic, to me, is a surprising company since you can find good quality products for every type of skin, for a very appealing price! Not to mention, their discounts are very friendly. As an online member living in Korea I have the chance to participate every month in the Shake Box event, where you can buy a box of, basically, way cheaper products (even though they literally have the same boxes every month, it’s still a pretty good deal). So, I was not aiming for this particular item, but since I got it I decided to try it. I mean, it is made out of rose, if that doesn’t appeal to you… then you’re probably not European 😀 But I do love me some rose products. Now, you should know there are two real nature ampoules for every scent, one with oil and one without – this one is  without oil so think of it as a rich essence.
Did I mention it comes in a glass bottle? It’s lovely just looking at it.
