[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.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Green Tea Lip Sleeping Mask

Innisfree Green Tea Lip Sleeping Mask Review

Innisfree Green Tea Lip Sleeping Mask Review:

Sheet mask, foot mask, hair mask, hand mask…in the world of k-beauty, there is literally a mask for every body part! But for this review, I’ll be writing about the lip sleeping mask, in particular, the Innisfree Lip Sleeping Mask with Green Tea (the other variant they have is Canola Oil Lip Sleeping Mask).

So what exactly is a lip sleeping mask? To me, it’s a thicker version of a lip balm that you apply before going to bed and wipe off the next morning which would leave you with super moisturized soft luscious lips. This product wasn’t a part of my routine up until a year ago when I first tried the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (probably considered as a Holy Grail product for most people). As someone with flaky dry lips who adores wearing lip tints daily, a lip sleeping mask has been a total game changer for me.

After I finished the sample size I have of the Laneige one, I contemplated if I’ll be willing to splurge on the full size. In the end, I decided to hunt for a cheaper alternative instead. After all, I’m someone who thrives on finding dupes for expensive products. Innisfree is a brand I’ve always trusted when it comes to skin care. I’m a fan of their Green Tea Seed line so when they launched a lip sleeping mask in the green tea variant, I decided to take my chances. I bought mine for 580php (~$11) which is still quite expensive for a lip product in my opinion.

This lip sleeping mask has been my go-to lip sleeping mask ever since I got it a few months ago and I must say, I’m pretty pleased with my purchase. Why? I’ll tell you in a bit, but before that, here are some details you might want to know about the product.

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?

Moonshot Multi Protection Tinted Moisture SPF30 PA ++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection Tinted Moisture SPF30 PA ++ Review:

Moonshot is “the YG brand” so it’s no surprise we expect quality from it, a slightly higher price, and satisfaction too. Of course often the models are also from YG, and the one for this product is Lisa! She couldn’t be more appropriate as she (like many of us) has slight pigmentation marks in some spots, and yet she is so pretty. I got this product thinking it was just a makeup base, but it ended up being more than that.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Review

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Review:

Having a combination skin wasn’t really a worry for me when choosing for the best cream/ moisturizer, however, I have a combination PLUS sensitive skin so the latter part was pretty much the problem. I have heard tons of positive reviews (including celebrities) about the brand Kiehl’s, especially about this Ultra Facial Cream. When I had the chance to do some last minute shopping in Hawaii before heading back to our island, I didn’t hesitate to grab 2 of these and wondered if this would be a permanent for me.

[REVIEW] Missha Time Revolution Night Repair PROBIO Ampoule

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule Review

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This ampoule and I have a history! I was a part of the test group for those percentages you see on advertisements, but it was a blind testing and we didn’t even know the brand. As soon as I received it, just by smelling, I knew it was a Missha ampoule. Maybe I used a lot of them already?

They didn’t tell us it was a night ampoule, so I used it during the day too. Eventually the product was released, and they revealed the name of the blind product. Of course I was so excited to be a part of it, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to review it I didn’t hesitate (I didn’t even check the price) because I was already so in love with it.

[REVIEW] Dr. MORITA Egg Shell Membrane & Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask

Dr MORITA Egg Shell Membrane Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask Review

Dr. MORITA Egg Shell Membrane & Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask Review:

Honestly, Dr. Morita mask had already caught my attention by the first time I entered every Taiwan drugstore. Dr. Morita really does a good job providing the mask sheet enthusiasts, as there are soooo many ranges and variants of Dr. Morita masks. And, as if the various ranges aren’t interesting enough, they also come in eye-catching packaging.

While at first Dr. Morita’s constant paraben content makes me in doubt whether I should try the products or not, I finally decided to give this a try : Dr. Morita Egg Shell Membrane & Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask. Why this one? Well, this variant has a bright yellow cover which is very appealing, and the main component – egg shell membrane – is quite unique for me. So, it’s mask sheet time!

Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream Review:

Okay, so this is not a new product. But it is a classic from the permanent and most famous collection of Laneige. And I can’t believe it took me 4 years to try this! I am disappointed in myself and so surprised with this cream, if you don’t have dry skin I would definitely suggest you at least pay attention to this cream if given a chance to try it.

[REVIEW] FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink

FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink Review

FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink Review:

Winter is coming, and with that brings cold and dry weather — the worst possible combination that is guaranteed to wreak havoc on my already constantly-dry lips.

During these months, I put away almost all my lip makeup — there’s no point in wearing lipstick when it’s only going to come off in patches of dry lip skin (ew!) by midday. Don’t even get me started on re-application; there’s no way that will go smoothly (both literally and figuratively).

The FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment has been highly raved about as an effective treatment that also doubles as a tinted gloss to give a bit of oomph to the lips. It has an interesting concept — basing its entire line of these lip products on temperature as well as focusing on bacteria on the skin to enhance lip color.

How did it fare?
