Neogence N3 Mandelic Acid Refining Mask Review

Neogence N3 Mandelic Acid Refining Mask Review:

I’ve been intrigued by Neogence as a brand for awhile now, but as they’re not the most affordable skincare range, I became pretty good at ignoring them whenever I chanced upon them in local stores, haha. However, when I saw their masks on sale, I really couldn’t resist getting my hands on at least a few variants to satisfy the nagging curiosity. So, did the results measure up to my expectations?

[REVIEW] Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch | Before & After Pics

Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch Review

Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch Review:

When I ran out of my favorite acne patch and it was also sold out everywhere, finally I had to move forward to another brand. I actually did not search any reviews on internet though I’m not that experienced with acne patch products. Just by seeing this product was ready on my favorite online shop, I immediately ordered it.

I chose Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch because it contains tea tree leaf oil which I believe, is a good ingredient to beat blemishes effectively as it contains strong antibacterial and antifungal components. I rarely use Skinfood skincare products, I usually buy only their makeup line, but since this brand is well-known for their natural and great formula, so I expected this product would give a good result for my acne prone skin.

[REVIEW] Forencos Volcanic Ash Detox Sheet Mask

Forencos Volcanic Ash Detox Sheet Mask Review

Forencos Volcanic Ash Detox Sheet Mask Review:

I bought this mask because its ingredients really appealed to me. I keep using the masks from welcos that contain volcanic ash from Jeju and they’re my holy grail sheet masks so I was really curious to see if I’d like this one as much.
To shortly sum it up, volcanic ash can be found anywhere near a volcano and people have been using it for cosmetic purposes since the prehistoric eras. It has many benefits for the skin as it can help healing rashes, blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, psoriasis, and even stretch acne.

[REVIEW] By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water

By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water Review

By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water Review:

When talking about exfoliating toners, Pixi Glow Tonic would first come to mind, as it is one of the earlier ones to emerge and quickly became a cult favourite. Then came The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, at a fraction of Pixi Glow Tonic price and with a bigger volume. What these two have in common is that both contain glycolic acid, which has the smallest acid molecule and can be irritating to sensitive skin folks.

By Wishtrend then has came up their own gentle exfoliating toner targeted for sensitive skin, which is the By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water. Mandelic acid has the largest molecule structure therefore it is the least to cause irritation because it penetrates the skin more slowly than glycolic acid. It also has anti-bacterial properties, which can help with inflammatory acnes.

I have tried both Pixi Glow Tonic and The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution. I really enjoy the one from The Ordinary, but not so much with Pixi Glow Tonic. I like having an exfoliating toner in my routine, so when I saw By Wishtrend launched this product I thought of trying it to see how it compares to the previous two that I have used.

Duft & Doft beVERYclear Peeling Gel Review

Duft & Doft beVERYclear Peeling Gel Review:

My favorite part of skincare is exfoliating. It’s fun but also very important. Exfoliating takes away a lot of things that shouldn’t be on the skin. In my opinion, it is a vital part on everyone’s routine. I remember reading an interview of the group kard on allure (yeah I know, it doesn’t really add up), and the members said the one step they can’t go without is exfoliating. If I can trust someone’s advice, that’s people with flawless skin.

I’ve been wanting to try this type of peel for years since it is less harsh on the skin than normal (not chemical) peels and it’s veeery satisfying to see more and more gunk coming out of the skin. I was in between this one and the secret key lemon peel but I decided on this one since it contains AHA, an ingredient that’s very famous for working well against acne.

Mamonde AC Balance Emulsion Review

Mamonde AC Balance Emulsion Review:

I bought this emulsion mostly because I wanted to try something from Mamonde, since I keep seeing products of theirs but have no idea how they really are. This emulsion and collection attracted me because it contains BHA, Salicilyc Acid (my fav ingredient), this ingredient is known to work effectively against acne and breakouts. It’s basically an exfoliant but not harsh. You have no idea it’s working until you see it on your face!

Bonajour Eggplant Daily BHA Toner Review:

I wanted to try this product as soon as I heard about it for two reasons. One is that Bonajour is a surprisingly good brand that keeps amazing me, and they do use lots of natural ingredients. The other one is… it’s an Eggplant toner, come on. And it’s purple! Wouldn’t you want to try that?

Comparison Review: Cosrx Clear Fit Master Patch Vs Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch

Comparison Review Cosrx Clear Fit Master Patch Vs Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch

Comparison Review: Cosrx Clear Fit Master Patch Vs Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch

Easily one of the most popular Korean skincare products, the CosRX Acne pimple patch, is one of my most purchased products. It’s not miraculous as many websites like buzzfeed and allure describe it- to be precise it simply does what it’s supposed to effectively (for me). I wouldn’t usually repurchase anything that does almost nothing however, out of all the patches I’ve tried so far, it’s the best.

One thing is for sure, my pimples don’t get worse after using a patch. I mostly use pimple patches to prevent large, active pimples from interacting too much with the air and get worse. Therefore, I mostly use them when I’m going out of my house. Because you can notice a weird circle on the skin when you wear this outside, CosRX created the new patches to wear outside (and with makeup!!). To me that sounds very appealing and to top that, the price is the exact same with the older ones! I have nothing but high expectations for CosRX so as soon as these were released, I ordered a piece.

The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% Review

The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% MAP Review:

Just as any typical Asian girl, I’ve always tried to brighten up my skin tone and keep the hyperpigmentations stay away as fast as possible. To meet the demand, vitamin C serum is produced. Vitamin C has been proven to offer numerous benefits, not only does it help improve your skin tone but it also do well in enhancing your skin natural barrier.

My first ever vitamin C serum is the L-Ascorbic Acid derivative, which is known for its quick effect on your skin and many requirements in terms of keeping it because of the unstability to the normal environment. After using it for a while, I realized that no matter how well I keep it in the fridge and try to use it up as fast as possible, it always oxidized when there was plenty left in the bottle and I had to throw it all away. What I need now is some kind of vitamin C derivatives that is stable in structure, easy to store and yet proves good efficacy. The Ordinary comes up and offers this baby, which completes all my requirements.
