Verite Real Power Shine Up Mask Review

Verite Real Power Shine Up Mask Review:

It’s my first Verite product (yay!) and since I didn’t know the brand until this moment it was all very exciting and new. As a brand that’s part of Amore Pacific I have nothing but high expectations for it, especially since most of their brands haven’t failed me thus far! Of all the masks they have I was stuck between this one and a double step “one for morning one for night” mask, but I chose this one (I know you must all be disappointed) because I read a review on that one and I didn’t find much on these ones.

ACWELL Traditional Grain Syrup Mugwort Mask Review:

Having had a pleasant experience with the Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner in the past, when I saw a deal on this range of sheet masks from ACWELL, I immediately looked up the ingredients before eagerly deciding to purchase them through a friend.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension + 2% HA Spheres

The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension + 2% HA Spheres Review

The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension + 2% HA Spheres Review:

When talking about anti-aging skincare ingredients, vitamin C is definitely one of the most popular and effective ingredients that we can incorporate in our routine. It is packed with antioxidant, helps with skin ageing, aids in lightening pigmentations as well as overall brightening of the skin complexion.

My first ever vitamin C product was the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop. The reason I chose this product is because I wanted a gentle vitamin C formula to introduce to my skin. After 6 months of using it, I felt like I was ready to move on to a stronger and more potent formula to tackle some pigmentation. And after reading lots of reviews, I decided to choose The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% Suspension for its stable formula and the unbeatable price point.

But a lot of people complained aboout the product’s texture and strong stinging sensation they get from this. Some even reacted badly towards this! So lets see if my experience and opinion as others are the same or not.

[REVIEW] TIAM My Signature C Source

Tiam My Signature C Source Review

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).

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

Laneige Two Tone Sheet Mask Moisturizing and Lifting Review

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).

[REVIEW] Banobagi Vita Genic Lifting Jelly Mask

Banobagi Vita Genic Lifting Jelly Mask Review

Banobagi Vita Genic Lifting Jelly Mask Review:

Facial sheet masks have been gaining so much popularity and there are so many to choose from with very wide ranging prices. Sheet masks are yet to be a regular in my skincare routine. I use it to pamper myself occasionally or when a perk-me-up is needed. I would rather spend the similar amount on a bottle of, say, moisturiser than a box of 10 masks. Some converts however do swear by the wonders that regular use of sheet masks have done for their skin.

I have never hear of Banobagi before, and soon discovered it is the name of a well-reviewed South Korean aesthetic clinic in Gangnam. So the sucker in me was thrilled to find another cosmeceutical brand to try out! The highlight of this mask is liposome, which allows effective absorption of the ingredients by the skin. It comes in 4 types – Hydrating, Lifting, Whitening and Brightening. I will be reviewing the lifting mask today.

Skinfood Pore control Fresh Apple Cream Review

Skinfood Pore control Fresh Apple Cream Review:

I got this cream a few months back, what happened was I was desperate to get rid of my sebum, and my pores were crazily enlarged. But my skin is combination and I wouldn’t just jump like crazy to some random cream, since risking dry skin is not something I would want (I had it while I was a teen and had acne and oil everywhere, my face was frying potatoes and snowing at the same time). So I nonchalantly walked into the store and told the lady “I’m looking for something that will help me with my sebum and pores, but that will keep my skin moist throughout the day” and I got two products! This was one of them.

[REVIEW] Skin79 Vita Glow BB Master

Skin79 Vita Glow BB Master Review

Skin79 Vita Glow BB Master Review:

I was watching the StyleCast trend report segment on Arirang channel and this Skin79 Vital Glow BB Master was being introduced. I have heard about the brand Skin79 and its highly raved BB creams but had never gotten down to try any. The BB Master is touted as a new concept product that blends ampoule with BB Cream, thus providing skincare and coverage at the same time.

It just sounded so good, I quickly googled to see how to get my hands on this. I think it was a relatively new product then (in Apr 2017) and I had a hard time finding it online. Even up till now, I also do not see it selling on the more common platforms such as Amazon and Ebay. Being the non-conformist, I am always game to try out the lesser known products. It can be rather exciting and satisfying to find a hidden gem out there.

Naruko NRK Bitter Melon Anti-Shine Purifying Mask Sheet Review

Naruko NRK Bitter Melon Anti-Shine Purifying Mask Sheet Review:

Hailing from Taiwan, Naruko has a fairly wide range of products to target specific skin care concerns. With Niu Er spear heading the brand – the so-called “Beauty King” in his home country – it’s no wonder that the brand even has various sub-brands with an even more extensive list of products, with NRK being one of them. Hence, let’s take a look at one of the sub-brand’s sheet masks, shall we?
