Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review:

Huxley is a pretty niche brand that is actually picking up some steam in South Korea as well as in the rest of the world. It features prickly pear seed oil from the Sahara Desert in all of its products to promote a healthy and glowing complexion.

I was recommended the Brightly Ever After Essence for brightening and hydrating effects by a close friend, and decided to give it a go.

So, does it live up to its hype?

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review:

Admittedly, I always tend to stray away from most hyped up things in fear of being disappointed and/or underwhelmed. Hence, the main reason why I’m only now offering up a review for one of The Ordinary’s various skincare products; this in particular being a destashed item from my friend as she found it to not work for her (allergic reactions, irritation, etc). Thinking that it’d be worth a try considering my penchant for anything targeting pigmentation issues (arbutin is a well-known skin brightening agent!), I decided to put it to the test. Would the YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) rule ring true?

[REVIEW] Bonajour Extreme Spot Serum

Bonajour Extreme Spot Serum Review

Bonajour Extreme Spot Serum Review:

When I first got this serum and started using it I thought it was just a good serum to plump sensitive skin. But then I moved houses and in two days of stress and dust my skin went back 10 years and I got infected stress pimples that, believe me, really hurt. For those two days all I could think is when would I get to unpack this serum – it was my last hope. I find that Bonajour products are simple, healthy and yet effective. So of course I bet my whole skin recovery on this.

[REVIEW] Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review:

Scinic is well known for their Honey all in one ampoule, and it’s an ampoule that many people enjoy using, so naturally when Scinic came out with three new ampoules I was curious to see how they would compare to the old ones. They actually came out in 2017 so they aren’t that new (oops) but it seems that not many people have tried them or written about them. The new (ceramide, centella and vitamin c) ampoules are larger (300ml) than the honey, aqua and snail ones, and also come with a pump which makes them more convenient to use.

I couldn’t resist buying (and trying) this ceramide ampoule when I found out it also contained shea butter. I’ve always been looking for products that contain both of these things because I think it sounds like a good combination. The fact that there were no reviews made me a bit nervous but in the end I just decided to try it out, even if it was a bit of a risky purchase. Read on to see if my risky purchase was a good or bad idea.

[REVIEW] Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid Serum 97%

Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid Serum 97% Review

Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid Serum 97% Review:

There are a good number of Korean skincare and cosmetics products that adopt cutesy designs to attract female consumers. There is a part of me that goes “wooh” and “wah” over these too. But there is just one brand that I think was meant to achieve this, but somehow I did not take to it – Elizavecca.    

Reading up on the brand story of Elizavecca, it was said to be established by a “Korean student who studied traditional Chinese medicine” in Year 2011. The brand prides itself on offering its products at affordable prices to allow more people to enjoy beautiful skin. It uses picture of a pig and many of its products has the word “piggy” on their name. I do not find the pig cute and in fact felt that the whole feel of its range of products feel unprofessional and unconvincing.

But as I was searching for hyaluronic product to alleviate my dehydrated skin, this Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid 97% which garnered many raved reviews kept coming up on the search results.  So I decided I should cast aside my biasness and give it a try.

[REVIEW] Skinmiso Spot Repairing Serum

Skinmiso Spot Repairing Serum Review

Skinmiso Spot Repairing Serum Review:

Many Korean products that are meant for people with acne, use before and after photos of people who supposedly used their products. It’s impossible to not stumble upon one of these. I personally always react like “eyy there’s no way that’s real” and then I proceed to read more about the product and get mesmerized by the photos.. until I finally use it and realize it’s a complete let-down.

This serum was one of these cases however, knowing that many people love and swear by Skinmiso’s products, I really felt a “this is the one” vibe. I truly had a feeling that this product will make my scars fade away right away- or will it; Read the rest of the review and see for yourself!

9wishes Perfect Ampule Serum Calm Review

9wishes Perfect Ampule Serum Calm Review:

9wishes isn’t a brand I’m wholly familiar with, and from their brand, I’ve only really seen this particular line around – I bought mine in a physical Watsons during my Bangkok trip last year – and maybe a few other products like their Vanishing Balm which apparently works well as a tone-up cream. But after consulting a friend who’s tried the Oxygen type from this line and having encouraging results, I decided to snag myself one to try.

Mamonde First Energy Essence Honeysuckle Review

Mamonde First Energy Essence Honeysuckle Review:

Mamonde has been a brand that is enjoying increasing popularity lately and I have been loving this brand ever since I tried their famous Rose Water Toner which I have gone through three bottles and I am still currently using it. This First Energy Essence was introduced after the toner and is another product that has been highly raved by many. Since Mamonde is a skincare brand which I have high expectations for, I decided to give it a try as I have yet to incorporate any first essences into my skincare routine.

[REVIEW] TIAM My Little Pore Fix Source

TIAM My Little Pore Fix Source Review

TIAM My Little Pore Fix Source was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I was teased by a lot of good reviews of this serum on some beauty forums. Yes, Tiam My Little Pore Fix Source became popular lately, well at least in my country. Even I met this lovely blue baby like everywhere when I did online window shopping. And now, I am delighted to share my review as I got a chance to try this serum.

By the way, aside from many good reviews over there, I was also interested with the key ingredients of this serum. Tannin, Sesaflash, Centella Asiatica (oh, I love this!), and Conalbumin. If you haven’t yet known about the benefits of these ingredients, read below. They sound very promising! And since I have issue with large pores (also oily T-zone and blemishes) thus I put a big expectation on this serum. Let’s see what kind of result it gives!
