Rohto Mentholatum Melano CC Intensive Anti Spot Essence Review:

I have been battling with acne since my childhood, and on top of having to deal with annoying, painful, unsightly blemishes, I also have to deal with the dreaded aftermath: Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, also known as PIH. After I discovered vitamin C products and their abilities to fight PIH I decided to incorporate them permanently in my routine. So how does this little tube perform against that dreaded PIH? Let’s find out.

[Review] Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Essence and Watery Cream

Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Essence and Watery Cream Review

Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Essence and Watery Cream Review:

Nature Republic is one of the first Korean Brands that I’ve delved into so I’ve always have a soft spot for it. Nature Republic to me, however, has been a hit-and-miss and sadly, I haven’t found something from them that has been exemplary to my skin.

Don’t get me wrong, most of their products deliver, I just feel that they lack in the oomph department. Nevertheless, I am open (will always be) to try Nature Republic products whenever I can so when I was gifted few products from the Ginseng Royal Silk line, I got really excited. I mean why not? You can consider this as luxury line given its price tag!

[Review] MISSHA Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule

MISSHA Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule Review

MISSHA Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule Review:

Many of you know that a very important part of the Korean skincare regimen is the serum or the ampoule, because that is the active part of the skincare regimen that provides targeted results for specific skin concerns. This step is my personal favorite part of my skincare regimen because I can customize my serum for my immediate concern. As usual, anti-aging and prevention of fine lines/wrinkles is always at the top of my list. I like to switch things up in my routine, because using the same product can be a little boring for me. That’s when I came across the MISSHA Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule. Although the name is long and sounds complicated, the results are simple! The MISSHA Time Revolution Ampoule claims to reduce the signs of aging and increase the skin’s elasticity. The key ingredient for this claim is a fermented yeast known as Bifida Ferment Lysate. I decided to try out this product because I had not yet tried any skincare product with this fermented yeast ingredient, and I was curious to see how it would suit my skin. The yeast is key for anti-aging because not only does it address wrinkles and decreased skin elasticity, it also protects and repairs the skin overnight. MISSHA is a well known brand with cult favorite products, so I had faith in this ampoule. Let’s see how this ampoule lived up to its name.

[Review] Innisfree Orchid Enriched Essence

Innisfree Orchid Enriched Essence Review

Innisfree Orchid Enriched Essence Review:

On my struggle to get rid of my blemishes (hey, I’m almost 30, it’s starting to worry me), the lady at Innisfree store advised me two essences. One is the previously reviewed Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence, the other one is Innisfree Orchid Enriched Essence. How are they different, which one is better? Does this one do everything it claims? Most people love the Orchid collection, but gladly I am not biased on anything other than the smell of a product, so let’s go and analyze this, shall we?

[Review] Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2x Essential

Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2x Essential Review

Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2x Essential Review:

Skinfood is one of the popular brands in the Korean Beauty industry. While some of their products could be a hit and miss for some, their Black Sugar line is quite impressive and very famous among K-beauty fans. My sister was one of those who had no luck with some of their products, but a friend of mine kept on praising Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2x Essential, claiming that it was always sold out at the store. Well, after a lot of convincing, eventually I caved in!

NEW 2016 IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning | Review

IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning Review

I bought IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning a while ago, when my skin was in need of deep help and this was advised to me by one of the store workers, since it matched well with the line of products I was using at the time. I must say, the price set a knife through my heart, since I got it as soon as it came out I paid full price. And at first I did not see any difference, but after using it for a little over three full months I am finally ready to comment on this item.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence | Review

Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence Review

Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence Review:

Korean beauty is pretty much flooded with snail containing products. Being the amateur kbeauty fan that I am then, I just grab whatever is main stream. Mass production means high demand, after all.

Now, I don’t know about you but I am honestly not grossed out by the thought of putting snail goo all over my face so when the snail train passed by, I jumped instantly. Luckily, my skin doesn’t have any negative reactions with snail products so I just grab them whenever one piques my curiosity. Naturally, my inquisitive eyes did not miss Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence.

Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence | Review

Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence Review

Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence Review:

So, I have been in a struggle for a few months, trying to get rid of my blemishes and trying to normalize my pores’ shapes (they’re supposed to be round, but mine have all sorts of shapes). According to an examination I did in the Innisfree store, where they measure your skin everything-levels, my blemishes and pores could be solved with one of two essences. This one, or the one from the orchid collection. So, for starters I chose Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence.

Just to break the suspense, it did work, but I will still try the other one, in case it works better for my specific case. Below I will analyze the essence independently of my skin goal, and focusing solely on the feeling and sensation, also the effects of this essence!
