iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum Review

iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum Review:

It is a constant struggle to find something for my dehydrated yet oily skin. Since I loved the COSRX ultimate moisturizing honey mask so much, I decided to search online for propolis related serums or moisturizers. That is when I found the iUNIK propolis serum! I was impressed by their high percentage of propolis extract at 70% for their affordable price at 22SGD (US16) dollars, and decided to take the plunge and purchase it for myself!

[REVIEW] Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum

Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum Review

Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum Review:

Pyunkang Yul is a skincare brand launched from the renowned Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic in Korea, which primarily treats atopic skin disorders. Aiming to revolutionize how you approach skincare, the brand advises to not just consider your skin type, but to also consider your body and environment when choosing products.

Thus, the birth of a line of products targeting a healthy oil-moisture skin balance in conjunction with traditional Chinese medicine – a very interesting idea in the sea of trendy ingredients and advertising in the oversaturated K-Beauty market.

So, although I am a bit late to the PKY party (to the point that they’ve now launched a new ACNE line), I wanted to give a well-thought out review after a decent duration of time. With naturally heaty facial skin and doomed to a humid climate day in and day out, did the Moisture Serum work out well for me?

[REVIEW] Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence

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.
