[REVIEW] Etude House Honey Cera Wrapping Mask

Etude House Honey Cera Wrapping Mask Review

Etude House Honey Cera Wrapping Mask Review:

I’ve faithfully been using the Cosrx honey sleeping mask for a long time, when one day I saw that Etude House had one in their Honey Cera line. I became curious to see how I would like the Etude House mask, since I’ve been a fan of the Cosrx one for a long time. I wasn’t expecting them to be similar at all, but the honey and ceramides drew me to try the Etude House.

I had not heard anything about this mask, so I wanted to try it just because it comes in a larger size and I needed a change from the usual sleeping pack that I use.  What I failed to realize until I had ordered it – was that this mask was actually a wash off mask and not a sleeping pack, unlike the Cosrx one. So can it be used as a sleeping pack or is it purely only a wash off mask, read on to see…

[REVIEW] Mamonde Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask Evening Primrose

Mamonde Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask Evening Primrose Review

Mamonde Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask Evening Primrose was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This is the last mask that came out with this collection. I waited this long (since mid 2017) to write this review not because I didn’t try it then, I did, but it didn’t match my skin at the time. So I thought it better to wait. I’ll get on details a little later.

Anyway, this mask was probably the one that thrilled me the most (among Calendula Sleeping Mask, Eoseong Cho Mask and Rose Bubble Mask). And I may sound like a nerd but I’ll still tell you why: Primrose Everdeen! Well, come on up! (It’s the Hunger Games, in case you never paid attention to the name of Katniss’ sister).

[REVIEW] New 2017 Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack – Panthensoside 5

Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack - Panthensoside 5 Review

Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack – Panthensoside 5 was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This is the most recent product from the Soon Jung collection by Etude House. Yes, some of you may think “oh but this isn’t new, it’s like two months old” – correct! I got it not long after it came out, and have been using it every every day.

I honestly didn’t know what to count on considering that part of the collection was amazing, one product was just okay, and another one actually wasn’t the nicest on my skin. Regardless, the part that was amazing was so amazing that I still had high hopes and expectations for this baby!

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

Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Sleeping Mask Review

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!

[REVIEW] J.One Black Jelly Pack

J.One Black Jelly Pack Review

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] J.ONE Jelly Pack

J.one Jelly Pack Review

J.one Jelly Pack Review:

I kept seeing this J.one jelly pack coming up in K-beauty reviews, but it never quite caught my attention sufficiently to read the reviews because of its very plain packaging. Neither do the name of “jelly pack” help because I have no idea what it is for.

Then I saw it on the highly popular Korean beauty show “Get it Beauty”. The J.one jelly pack is developed by a popular Korean actress Ha Ji-won, to meet the needs of busy on-the-good women like her. I was enticed by its multi-functions claim of being hydrating, pore-smoothing and especially the tagline used by Ha Ji-won is that it is a “corset for your face” ie. firming and lifting. In addition, the jelly pack is free of ingredients that are generally frowned upon – parabens, mineral oils, sulfates and phthalates. Doesn’t that sounds just like what I need for my complicated skin type?

[REVIEW] Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask

Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask Review

Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask Review:

On a lazy day, what is one make-up item that you will put on your face for a quick perk-me-up? It is likely lip colours. Ironically, the lips are the most neglected part of our face when it comes to skincare routine. We diligently remove traces of make-up on our face, but it is easy to overlook removing our lip colours. After all, when the colours fade from our lips at the end of the day, it is easy to forget.

And so I bear the consequences. I have lost count of how many lip balms I had bought in my attempts to recover my dry chapped lips. It was embarrassing whenever I talked to someone and felt them gazing at my lips, which I am sure it was not because the lips were full and lustrous but instead because they looked disastrous.

I was curious when I came across the Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask as lip balm was the only lip product that I knew off besides lip colours then. Aritaum is by Amore Pacific, whose more popular brands include the better known Innisfree, Etude House, Laneige, Iope, Sulwhasoo etc. In comparison, Aritaum products are at the lower end of the price spectrum. But it is by no means an inferior brand to its more sophisticated cousins.

[REVIEW] A’pieu Mashed Potato Pack

A'pieu Mashed Potato Pack Review

A’pieu Mashed Potato Pack was purchased by Cosmeperks.

The wonders of potatoes. Did you know you can literally grate a raw potato and put it on your face and it’ll be awesome for you skin? So when I saw this pack I didn’t know what it was (here in Korea they don’t always advertise the products for their utilities but for their special points – potatoes in this case) but I knew I would love to try it. A’pieu usually has hit or miss products, but they never once damaged my skin and the good ones are really really good – especially for the price.

So, not knowing what this baby was (which of course you know, because you read the title) I jumped to the store and have been using it ever since!

[REVIEW] New 2017 Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask

Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask Review

Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I do love me some sleeping masks. They protect and nurture the skin during the night, and that is especially important in Korea during the winter, since the weather is cold and extremely dry. However, after getting used to them in the winter… I didn’t want to drop them in the summer! So I was really happy when I tried the Mamonde Calendula Sleeping Mask that is ideal for my skin during the summer. This mask, however, not only did I get to try it during the summer and during “this weather” (almost like Autumn), but also it’s a denser mask which also hydrates! So, after reading all the specs of this mask, can this be my year-round mask?
