Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Oily Acne-prone Skin Review:

When something is causing a hype, we readily jump into the bandwagon and that’s how it’s been for who knows how long. Basically, we take the words of other people on something. If the majority claims that a product is HG-worthy, then it must be. If everybody’s yapping about something, you instantly wanna try it too! Sadly for skincare, it’s never predictable. What may be astounding to others may not make sense to you. Sometimes you want to agree with the crowd but you just can’t because you don’t get the hype at all.

If there’s one thing though, that I entirely embrace and truly thank for, aside from wearing sunscreen, is the advice of double cleansing. I am never without double cleansing since I realize how good it is for the skin! Needless to say, I always have something for double cleansing and recently, I got Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water because I’ve been seeing it on other people’s feed.

[REVIEW] New 2017 Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Sleeping Pack

[REVIEW] New 2017 Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Sleeping Pack

Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Sleeping Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

At the exact time when the weather started becoming colder and drier, and my skin started aging, I got lucky enough that Skinfood released this new product for their honey propolis collection! My skin particularly likes honey based products, and winter in Korea is terribly dry. It was just a bunch of happy coincidences when it came to the release of this product. So whereas Skinfood products are usually a hit or miss with my skin, I have now been using it for 1 month without rest and hope my review answers any question you might have!

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).

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Double Dare Review:

A month ago, I remembered that a few Kat Von D products were recently launched in my country (Italy), so I decided to check them out briefly. I already knew Kat Von D products, especially lipsticks and eyeshadows palettes, but I always considered them a bit expensive, so I avoided ordering stuff from the official site for that reason.

There were plenty of testers there of different colors (Vampira, Santa Sangre, Lolita etc) and I tried them all. The shades were amazing and at that point, I thought it was worth it to give it a try at least. I bought Double Dare because it was a neutral color that kinda fits every look and that I was probably going to use A LOT more than bright colors.

Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack Review:

When talking about skin problems, it must be endless. When I am done with annoying pimples then other problems come. Whitehead and blackhead. Oh dear! But I am not a kind of girl who gives up easily, I am a fighter (well, actually a lazy fighter, LOL). I am only interested with easy and simple treatment to remove comedo from my nose area, hence I like using nose pack once or twice a week. This way is quite effective as far as I use it regularly. My favorite product was Biore Pore Pack until another brand teased me with their new collection. That’s Tonymoly Tako Pore series that had just launched in July, 2017.

Tonymoly Tako Pore series are created to resolve annoying blackheads and excess sebum problems. Tonymoly released some products in this line and the first one that catched my attention was its Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack. No other reason, I was truly attracted with the wide and unique shape of the strip. Besides, when I read the ingredients list I found this nose pack has great combination of Marine Plant extracts and Madagascar Mud. Those are great to absorb excess sebum and a pore-tightening effect. Let’s see how it works!

PhytoTree Get It Bean Mask Moisturizing Review:

I got this mask after receiving one of the brand’s hand cream for reviewing. The results were decent, the price was mid-range, but the package is on top with the cuteness! So I decided to try a mask. Why? Wouldn’t you love it if your friends gave you good presents with a cute packaging? Well, I know my friends like that kind of stuff – and since I’m a sucker for cuteness myself I tried it for myself too! And yes, to me beans are cute.

The Saem Saemmul Under Eye Maker | 01 Light Brown + Plumping White Review:

Honestly this is just one of those things that I got when I walked in the store to get something else. I didn’t get it to get myself an “aegyo sal” (or cute puff under my eye) but because the brown color is my favorite color for my eyebrows and this ashy brown color is really difficult to come across here in Korea. So, the right color with a cute highlighter included! Count me in, especially for this price. But of course I did try it also as an under eye maker hehe.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

[REVIEW] The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Review:

What happens when you combine science, environmentalism and effective marketing? Boom, The Ordinary, a name that immediately became household even to people that don’t really care about skincare. That happened not only because their prices are the cheapest on the market but because they make products that actually work. No, The Ordinary didn’t invent new technologies that do magic on your skin. If you quickly google it you will find that there’s other brands with similar products. That’s not the main point though. The point is that The Ordinary made as effective products- if not more effective, for a tiny fraction of the price. In my opinion they are making a revolution. They are proving that skincare can be for everyone. If one brand is really doing a lot to make people’s skin better, that is The Ordinary.

Now jumping to this peel, out of all the actives I’d say AHA and vitamin C are the most well-known. About a year ago, I went through an ”I need actives to function properly” faze. I’m not really proud about it, but as soon as I saw 30% AHA it must’ve taken me less than 2 minutes to buy this peel. The reason is that AHA and BHA (which by the way actually works better on my skin), are known to be effective deep exfoliants that help with fighting acne and for improve the skin’s look.

[REVIEW]  The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% Review:

I have always wanted to incorporate acid into my skincare routine but I always hesitate because I fear that it may end up causing skin damage instead of improving it. There are way too many precautions when using it that I thought to myself, is it even worth the plunge? But then, my other self won’t stop nagging: you wouldn’t know unless you try!

It goes without telling that in the end, my guts won, otherwise, I wouldn’t be here talking about acid. Truth be told, The Ordinary Lactic Acid is not the first active that I have tried, it’s my second actually. I bought this because I was looking for a milder alternative since I am a little overwhelmed by its bold sister –The Ordinary AHA 30%  BHA 2% Peeling Solution but hey, that’s another story!
