[REVIEW] TIAM My Signature C Source

Tiam My Signature C Source Review:

I have, for nearly 2 years now, been incorporating a vitamin C serum in both my daily and nightly skincare routine. However, the serum(s) that I used only contained a 5% maximum concentration of vitamin C and it was quite expensive for a small amount. I did more research in the blogosphere and finally decided to give this much talked about serum a shot. This baby here contains a 20% concentration of vitamin C and was much cheaper! You don’t have to tell me twice. On the day it arrived, I started using it and have been very happy with the results.

This product used to be known as the O.S.T. C20 serum and Tiam (the company that produces the serum) is part of the Cosrx family. Now, I have a lot of faith in the entire Cosrx products line and so unsurprisingly, this blind faith extended to Tiam as well. I was not disappointed. This faint citrus scented serum has become my favourite part of my skincare routine, not only because I love the smell of oranges but mainly because it has actually helped lighten some of the scarring I had from blemishes around my chin area (the result of being a woman and suffering through hormonal blemishes during that time of the month).

Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Mask Sheet Review:

On the journey to better skin I noticed my skin likes honey a lot, and consequently propolis should be one of the best things to happen to my skin. So, among the many products I started using that have honey or propolis, I decided to take a leap on this new version of the Skinfood Propolis mask! I can not contain my excitement on trying this!

Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Wrinkle Up Spot Review:

When I was in Seoul during the summer, I must have spent all my life savings in Myeongdong on K-beauty products (kidding….or am I?). I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and try some brands that I normally would not have even thought of purchasing. Nature Republic was one of those brands, mainly because they were everywhere and also because the salesperson was handing out sample sheet masks outside the store….I am a major sucker for freebies. I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and try some brands that I normally would not have even thought of purchasing.

One of their bestsellers was the Ginseng Royal Silk range. I bought a few products from that range but the one I started using first was the Wrinkle Up Spot. The saleslady told me that this product was good for removing wrinkles especially under the eyes and smile lines around the mouth. The main ingredient in this product is gold (99%) which promotes blood circulation and has a brightening effect. Perfect for dark circles! This product also contains ginseng for revitalization of the skin, silk compounds for cell regeneration and royal jelly which again, has brightening properties as well as helps to keep the skin firm and supple. “Sold!” – I thought to myself. Give me a tube of that golden ginseng goodness!

[REVIEW] J.One Black Jelly Pack

J.One Black Jelly Pack Review:

I admit I had prejudices about this brand and its products. Too much hype makes counter effect on my first opinion while contemplating about the power of good marketing strategy. Alas, I took the bait. And I am glad I did. This product is (I don’t know where to begin from) a moisturizer/sleeping pack/all in one skin enhancer. All I can say is it does its job.

I must however mention its white twin brother J.One Jelly Pack that is also all in one moisturizer but primarily it’s a primer proving it by its sticky texture in purpose of almost impregnating skin before applying any SPF or makeup. That is (besides the ingredients list) the most significant difference between them.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Soybean Energy Neck Cream

Innisfree Soybean Energy Neck Cream Review:

We constantly strive to care for our face because this is what people notice at first sight. But we overlook its nearest neighbor, the neck. Other than the crow feet and wrinkles on the face, another tell-tale sign of one’s age is neck. The skin on the neck will also lose its elasticity over time and that is when vertical ridges (more pronounced when you speak) or horizontal neck lines make their appearances. And in today’s world of smart gadgets, where we often lower our heads gazing at our phones and tablets, wrinkled necks seem inescapable.

Skin on the face and neck differ, in that the latter has less hair follicles and oil glands. It is also less likely to be sensitive as compared to the face. Most of the time, people do not splurge on neck creams separately. They either overlook the application of skincare products on their neck, or they use the same face cream on it. I am one of these “most people”. I do not really give neck care much thoughts despite being aware that it does need attention too. So when I chanced upon the Innisfree Soybean Energy Neck Cream, which I feel is at a very affordable price for such a big jar, I decided to make a purchase to ease the guilt.

[REVIEW] New 2017 Laneige Two Tone Sheet Mask | Moisturizing and Lifting

[REVIEW] New 2017 Laneige Two Tone Sheet Mask | Moisturizing and Lifting

Laneige Two Tone Sheet Mask Moisturizing and Lifting was purchased by Cosmeperks

Laneige masks are considered to be “affordable high end” masks here in Korea, it’s what most people turn to when they look for something above average but not above average price. This new collection of masks seems very promising as they target two different problems at once! Well, better yet it would have been to let you choose a top and a bottom, separately, for your own taste, but I guess they didn’t think that far.

Regardless, I really like moisturizing masks, and good lifting masks are also great for tightening the skin, so I chose the mask that seemed to please me most when it came to its functions (even though honestly it’s the ugliest from the collection).

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Review:

The Ordinary is a relatively new brand that has been creating huge buzz in terms of beauty. If you must know, it is not an Asian brand but is actually Canadian. It is from the Deciem aka The Abnormal Beauty Company. They are known to produce effective products at a very friendly price range.

I don’t know about you but cheap yet effective gets me, every single time. I bought few stuff from the Ordinary and one of which is the Niacinamide 10% + Zince 1% since I realize that I do not own any sebum controlling product apart from oil blotting paper and powder. I’m sure a lot of people is curious about this one, after all, it is one of the products I always get inquiries about!

Leejiham LJH Vita Propolis Ampoule Review:

This teeny bottle of golden nectar has fast become a must-have in my daily routine. It contains 50% propolis extract to help achieve the “dewy glow”. If you watch as many K-dramas as I do, you will know the look I am referring to *cough* Jun Ji Hyun. It also contains multi vitamins (B3, B5, C), Centella Asiatica, Sea Buckthorn and Witch Hazel extract to help calm irritation / redness, minimise the appearance of pores and delay anti-aging. This little bottle just keeps on giving!

I was surprised to discover that LJH actually operates a chain of professional dermatology clinics in Korea (suddenly their “Beauty is Clever” tagline makes more sense) and the Vita Propolis range is one of the 6 product ranges of cosmeceuticals on their website.
