[REVIEW] 2018 NEW Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel

Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel Review

Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Ever since I learned about oil cleansing and double cleansing I’ve faithfully been using oil cleansers at night, but there are times when I got totally sick of using them. In those times I tried some Western micellar waters, but somehow, I found them more drying than the oil cleansers and they didn’t remove my sunscreen that well. So, even though I was completely sick of using an oil cleanser I felt as though there wasn’t another option. I had heard of cleansing milks as well but the ones I heard about seemed unable to remove sunscreen so I never bothered to try them either, but I always was curious about cleansing milks.

So naturally when I heard Cosrx was coming out with a first cleanser – and a milk type one of course I was interested in it and eager to try it. Even more so when I read that it removes sunscreen as well as base make up, because that is pretty much what I look for in a first cleanser, something to remove sunscreen and light make up. That alone made me want to buy it but also the fact that it’s made by Cosrx was the other deciding factor for me. After all, Cosrx is well known and loved internationally for their clean ingredient lists, no frills packaging and for being effective skin care products which are also reasonably priced.

You might wonder what a cleansing milk is, after all they don’t seem to be as well known as oil cleansing or as easy to find. They are designed to be more moisturizing and less stripping than other cleansers and are good for dry skin. Milk cleansers usually have a mix emollients and oils so they can remove make up as well as sunscreen. Since it is winter right now, I wanted to try something that would be gentler and less drying for my skin, so I hoped that this cleansing milk would be the perfect solution.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser (New Packaging)

Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser Review

Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser Review:

Innisfree is slowly renewing all of its superfood lines. I thought at first they were literally renewing (like, updating the products) but let me tell you beforehand when it comes to the Blueberry line nothing changed except for the design! I have two products from this line so I decided to check the ingredients, and at first in this cleanser the new version’s website ingredients were different!

So after a long messy week I came to know the ingredients on the website were for a future (unreleased) big version of this product. And no, the big version isn’t different, but since it’s big it has “more” blueberry and glycerin and etc, because they are measured by physical amount and not percentage.

With that out of the way, when I first started using this cleanser (actually even when I bought it) I was expecting it to be like a less good version of the Krave Matcha Hemp Hydrating cleanser. I expected it to be “just a foam” that stripped the moisture a little, but with a low pH would be less harmful for the skin. Well, I must say it did surprise me and it’s way better than I thought!

Shiseido Senka Perfect White Clay Cleansing Foam Review

Shiseido Senka Perfect White Clay Cleansing Foam Review:

Well, this brand SENKA is very popular these days! I’ve seen a lot of people opened pre-order SENKA from Malaysia, Japan, and Singapore. However, you may notice that the variant I’m using is not THAT famous SENKA variant.

I use SENKA Perfect White Clay while the popular one is SENKA Perfect Whip. SENKA Perfect Whip is said to be very effective and does its claim very well despite the economical price. So, will SENKA Perfect White Clay just be a dead duck compared to its sibling or not?

[REVIEW] Tosowoong Natural Pure Apricot Seed Oil Cleansing Oil

Tosowoong Natural Pure Apricot Seed Oil Cleansing Oil Review

Tosowoong Natural Pure Apricot Seed Oil Cleansing Oil Review:

I’d been using the same oil cleanser for almost a year, and sure it worked perfectly adequately but I couldn’t help but get sick of it. Without really meaning to, I found myself looking around for other oil cleansers, and something different than what I was currently using. I came across this apricot seed oil, and as a fan of apricots I must admit that this cleansing oil looked really appealing.

My Etude House Real Art Moisture Cleansing Oil also contained apricot seed oil, so I thought this might be even better since the apricot seed oil was meant to be 40% of this cleanser. I didn’t see many reviews about this oil, but I decided to give it a try anyway, figuring that with the small and clean ingredient list it would probably be a really lovely cleansing oil to use. Plus, I just really needed a break from my current oil cleanser, sure there was nothing majorly wrong with it, but I wanted to try something different.

[REVIEW] New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum | Essence in Lotion | Skin | Cream | Cleanser | Sleeping Mask

New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum + Essence in Lotion + Skin + Cream + Cleanser + Sleeping Mask Review

New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum Special Set was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I met this amazing serum for the first time in 2013. I really LOVE how it worked on my skin since the first time I tried it. I think I already spent 1, 2, 3… ah, I lost my count how many bottles I’ve bought. Right, it’s Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum (the first Korean green tea skincare I’ve tried)!

This green tea serum is the world’s best seller product from Innisfree, even it’s awarded globally as best moist serum for 19 times! (well, I do know why it is). The good news, Innisfree just upgraded the formula of this lovely serum! As far as I know, they already upgraded it 3 times. In 2014, 2016 and now, the newest upgraded version in 2018!

Actually, Innisfree not only upgraded their Green Tea Seed line but also added a new product, Innisfree Green Tea Seed Essence-in-Lotion. And I extremely wanted to try everything in this line. Thankfully, they had a special set to introduce their newest formula for us. Here is New Green Tea Seed Serum Special Set which comes in a thick green box, consists of 6 products (the full size of Green Tea Seed Serum and the minis of Green Tea Seed Skin, Essence-in-Lotion, Cream, Morning Cleanser, and Sleeping Mask). Okay, get your coffee or snacks and please sit tight, it’s gonna be a long post, but I guess you are as excited as I am to try this NEW Green Tea Seed line, aren’t you?

[REVIEW] Innisfree Derma Formula Micellar Cleansing Water Fresh

Innisfree Derma Formula Micellar Cleansing Water Fresh Review

Innisfree Derma Formula Micellar Cleansing Water Fresh Review:

I have had the habit of double cleansing since years back, after I switched from a make-up removal cleanser to using micellar cleansing water. I started using micellar cleansing water because I like how gentle it is to the skin. However, it does not seem to address my other skincare needs for oily skin which is why I have a separate cleanser for this.
I was only aware of a particular brand of micellar water all these while and had been using it faithfully. It was only in the recent couple of years or so when I start to learn more keenly about Korean skincare that I realised their skincare regime recommends double cleansing.

So Koreans probably make pretty good micellar water, won’t they? And when I subsequently came across a Youtuber comparing the brand of micellar cleansing water I use against a Korean brand, with the latter containing less chemical ingredients, I made a mental note that I should try out one.

And came this day when I was browsing the shelves in Innisfree when I saw this micellar cleansing water that says “with hyaluronic acid” and “for oily & combination skin”. So although this is not the one that I saw recommended in the Youtube video I mentioned, I decided it may be worth a try based on its label. This derma line was released by Innisfree some time around the 4th quarter of 2017. It has another variant “Moist” that is meant for dry skin.

Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil Review

Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil Review:

Curious about other cleansing oils, when a friend brought this up last year, I was surprised, considering Simple isn’t an Asian brand. But looking at the relatively clean and minimal ingredients list, it left me very intrigued. So when I caught it on sale at a local pharmacy/drugstore, I gave in almost immediately. Read on to see how a British cleansing oil fares in terms of makeup removal!

MizuMi Extra Mild Facial Cleanser Review:

While on a trip to Bangkok, I remember just walking through aisles of cosmetics at the drugstore and finding brands I’ve never heard of before, which, as you might’ve guessed, included this brand. Being a natural sceptic, I took note of it but didn’t buy it immediately.

However, when I couldn’t find much reviews online in English (Google Translate can only help so much), I ended up going for it anyway (whatever I could read seemed promising) and purchasing a bottle right before I flew back home the next day. But how did it fare?

Cremorlab Spa et Cremor Thalasso Foam Cleanser Review

Cremorlab Spa et Cremor Thalasso Foam Cleanser Review:

I got this product as soon as it came out, wrote a post of first thoughts, and then went on vacation to Russia. This was in the summer. I totally forgot about it until I finished a few other cleansers, then I remembered how much I enjoyed the smell of this cleansing foam – how much it reminded me of home and grabbed it right away.

I used it for 3 weeks last month, then I had to stop, and now I decided to write my opinion on this, and why I had to stop using it. I feel it’s important to share the good, the bad, and the indifferent.
