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!

Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb Review:

This was a cream I have been wanting to try for ages as I have read a lot of flattering reviews of Belif and my friend has been swearing up and down that Belif is the reason for her blemish-free complexion. This cream is more of a lightweight gel moisturiser and great for those with oily / combination skin.

Belif claims to have re-created a formula whereby this cream acts like an explosion of a water bomb to relieve the skin from modern age daily pollutants. As it is of a gel consistency, it dries relatively quickly on the skin – good for those mornings when you are in a rush to get out of the house and need to apply your makeup at breakneck speed.

The Face Shop Yehwadam Revitalizing Moisturizing Cream Review:

I like buying products from Korean brands because they are generous with samples. It is a smart marketing strategy, because this helps to introduce the products to potential customers and increases the chances of customers buying full-size products later on.

I was browsing the shelves at The Face Shop one day, contemplating whether to get a full-size moisturizer after having tried out some sample sachets some time back. As usual, the ever-friendly sales staff came over and asked if I needed help. Noting my skin concern, she sailed me to another line – Yehwadam instead of the original one I was looking at. There are two types under the Yehwadam line – Revitalizing Moisturising (blue in colour) and Revitalizing (pink in colour). She recommended the former to me, which is more suited for oily skin while still addressing anti-aging needs. The highlight of course is the one plus one promotion that was going on. It is hard to resist a one plus one offer, isn’t it? And so I succumbed to her sales pitch. But I have no regrets for this.

Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream Review:

Yes, this was a purchase made in hype. Every single AB message board or social network was buzzing about this cream. So many raving reviews, so many times mentioned as holy grail cream. It was even claimed to be discontinued (in panic) just to reappear like a Fenix. Who could possibly resist that? Not even a normal person, let alone me, skin care junkie. Every possible description of this cream had been written in kudos and I simply wanted to test it. Seems legit. Right? No? Ok then, it’s me.

So, let’s see how did this little hanbang wonder cream do on my needy, hard to please skin.

By Wishtrend Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream Review:

The first thing ever I started using for my skincare was a moisturizer. I have tried so many moisturizers and can never settle with one, it is my ultimate weakness! And when I saw Wishtrend was having a promotion for the By Wishtrend Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream where it was free and we only had to pay for 9USD shipping, I did not think twice and immediately got it! Lets see how my skin got along with this cream.

Secret Key MaYu Healing Facial Cream Review:

Today’s review is about one of my first Korean creams that I ever bought. And fell in love with the Asian skin care at all. Secret Key is Korean brand that started business in 2006. They claim to be in pursuit of healthy beauty with the reasonable price and natural and environmental friendly ingredients.

In addition, the horse oil as the cosmetics ingredient was pretty much exotic to me. So to speak. And so promising for my skin concerns.

Steblanc Aqua Fresh Gel Cream Review:

I was in need of a moisturizing cream to use at the end of my routine and seal all the previously used products in. I went online, I searched, I found one with a great discount, I bought. I wish this method had a happy ending for everyone but sadly it usually ends as a waste of money (trust me I’ve wasted a lot of money on random products because they had a discount… maybe I should check that..).

Thankfully this time it had a happy ending. All I knew about this brand was that it is somehow related to Mizon and I love Mizon so I had nothing to lose. Buying this cream was like I bought a lucky bag that gave me my money back.

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.
