Looking for a mild toner to use post-cleansing to ensure minimal residue (from makeup, sunscreen, etc) is left, I was recommended Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner by a friend. And upon finding out how gentle and mild the ingredients were, while also being free of my usual skincare triggers, I decided to take a leap of faith. So, how did it fair for my sensitive, redness-prone skin?
Missha The Original Tension Pact Intense Moisture Review:
Missha is one of my all time favourite beauty brands and even though its more on the pricier side – at least for me, a young student – I’m more than willing to give them all my money in exchange for their beauty products.
Nevertheless, in the following, I’d like to give you my brutal, absolute honest opinion one of their Tension Pact. I started of with their “Magic Cushion Moisture” and now I am here with “Missha The Original Tension Pact Intense Moisture No.21”. And what can I say: I use it everyday. And I am in love with it!
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Review:
I heard about this product from multiple Instagrammers in the Asian beauty community a few months ago. I was in the market for a new sunscreen as the EltaMD UV clear SPF that I had picked up from my dermatologist’s office seemed to emphasize my skin’s texture and dry patches.
I had heard through the Asian beauty community grape vine and my own research that Asian sunscreens were superior to US sunscreens in both appearance/finish and UV protection. So, it was time for me to change up my SPF game and bought Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence.
Hada Labo Koi-Gokujyun UV White Gel Review:
Hada Labo is the first skincare line that I purchased when I started my Asian Beauty (AB) journey. At that time, I was looking for something that moisturizes and hydrates, and Hada Labo instantly pops up as they are well-known for their Super Hyaluronic Acid. I ended up buying their cleanser, their famous hydrating lotion, a moisturizer and also this UV White Gel.
Innisfree Lip Sleeping Pack Canola Honey was purchased by Cosmeperks for review purposes.
Innisfree Lip Sleeping Pack is a brand new product, and this is one of the first reviews online, so I hope you’re as excited as I am!
Labiotte Wine Lip Tint Review:
Hi, my name is Jui and I am addicted to lipstick… mattes, to be specific. I have been hooked for years now. I honestly think that matte is the best formula ever but my lips say otherwise. While color payoff is super gorge, they are really bad for my lips; I always end up with very chapped, cracked lips. Truth be told, I’ve been okay with this. Still cool even though sometimes my lips get tinge of blood and gets a bit painful whenever I put on a smile. Naturally, my issues didn’t stop me from hoarding more ultra-matte lipstick. I don’t know what happened but one day I just found myself on google looking for “long lasting lip tints”.
I’ve seen a lot of brands, alright. From Western to Asian brands. It was kind of easy for me to narrow my options since I’m more inclined to Asian Beauty. Now I was torn between these beautiful packaging; if you’re into Korean Beauty you would understand that sometimes, you really end up buying stuff just because they were housed in a cute packaging –and that’s exactly how this cutesy thing ended up in my grabby hands.
I have been a fan of Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze sheet masks but this ingredient was so different for me, in a sense that, would I want shea butter on my face too besides slathering it all over my body?! Let’s see how this extremely nourishing sheet mask went on my skin!
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.
Tonymoly Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion Review:
I will be perfectly honest and admit that I bought Tonymoly Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion solely for the package, without even testing it. The reason for that is, if the foundation cream is not to my liking I will simply clean all of it and replace it with some other foundation cream I enjoy more.
So, I went on this journey without testing nor expectations. I love the package, to me that is enough reason to buy this, as the price is quite friendly! Regardless, with this Pokemon collection you can have everything: from basic skin care to a body lotion, and full face makeup! So, at least a part of it is worth taking a shot at, right?
