[REVIEW] Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam

Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam Review

Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam Review:

I was very much excited for September to come because it’s my birthday month, only to be left distressed. It had been an emotionally challenging month, to say the least. Unfortunately for me, all the stress, sleepless nights and binge eating have taken its toll and it shows all over my face. I had a massive breakout (yay for the breakout of the year) and it’s starting to sadden me. Instinctively, I went on to a skincare diet. I discontinued using acids and putting new stuff on my face to avoid (acne) triggers and just let my skin breathe.

I focused on hydration/moisturization to help my skin heal but even with outmost effort to battle acne, it seems that I am losing. Another day, another acne; that’s how it’s been for weeks and I was starting to get overly sad about it. I looked for a potent ingredient that fights acne and tee tree caught my attention.

Since my skin reacted well with Naruko mask (green) when I last broke out, I considered getting my hands on anything tea tree. And since I am almost done with my Cosrx Low pH cleanser (I’m not entirely impressed, plus I hate the smell), I thought I should replace it with another tea tree cleanser and that’s how I ended buying Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam!

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution Review

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution Review:

The Ordinary brand has made a huge wave in the skincare industry for its super affordable products, and every skincare addict would own at least one The Ordinary item. I wanted to jump on The Ordinary bandwagon as well (don’t want to miss out on the hype, now do we?), but I was overwhelmed with all of the products! I didn’t even know where to start looking. I did not want to go with the cult favourite just because of the rave.

I wanted to get something that I really need in my routine. So I started evaluating my skin concerns and it seems like I already have the products to address those issues, except for a spot treatment that I have yet to find one that actually works. I don’t exactly have acne problem but of course I do get occassional clogged pores and hormonal breakouts when it is the time of the month. Therefore I decided to jump on The Ordinary bandwagon starting with the Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, which also happens to be my first ever BHA product.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Review

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Review:

The Ordinary is a relatively new brand that has been creating huge buzz in terms of beauty. If you must know, it is not an Asian brand but is actually Canadian. It is from the Deciem aka The Abnormal Beauty Company. They are known to produce effective products at a very friendly price range.

I don’t know about you but cheap yet effective gets me, every single time. I bought few stuff from the Ordinary and one of which is the Niacinamide 10% + Zince 1% since I realize that I do not own any sebum controlling product apart from oil blotting paper and powder. I’m sure a lot of people is curious about this one, after all, it is one of the products I always get inquiries about!

[REVIEW] Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion | #23 Natural Beige

Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review

Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Lately COSRX is being very much popular and most raved in Korean beauty products. Personally, their acne treatment products have won my heart since they worked well and effectively on my blemished skin. And also it’s like that COSRX was the first brand which brought me to the Centella Asiatica Extract hype. You know, this ingredient is very good for acne prone skin as its benefits to care inflammation and soothes skin.

Getting more and more popular, and like they know that skincare is not enough, COSRX is coming back with their new product. Now it’s time for their makeup line. It is COSRX Clear Fit Blemish Cushion. This cushion was only available on Style Korean at first, but then it was launched in Korea about weeks ago (I think it should be the first week of this month, cmiiw). And finally I got my baby after waiting more than a week due to accidentally shipping issue.

[REVIEW] Mizon Acence Mark-X Blemish After Cream

Mizon Acence Mark-X Blemish After Cream Review

Mizon Acence Mark-X Blemish After Cream Review:

I have been battling acne for about 3-4 years now. So far I have managed to come on top but as you can imagine now I have to deal with the aftermath of acne. If you yourself have had acne you know that after you have “cured” it, you are left with lovely blemishes, scars and even hyperpigmentation.

So of course I needed a product to help me deal with these consequences of acne. That is how I stumbled across the Mizon Acence Mark-X Blemish After Cream. All the promises this cream made seemed just too good to be true so naturally I had to try it out for myself.

Etude House AC Clean Up Mask Sheet Review

Etude House AC Clean Up Mask Sheet Review:

Despite the fact that I’m crazy over brightening masks, I see to it that I have one or two that helps clear up for when I’m having skin emergency. Unfortunately for me, my skin doesn’t seem to react with tea tree unlike most people so I have to find something else. I have missed my usual skincare routine over the weekend because some relatives visited. It’s crazy how I feel my pores so clogged up by missing just about two days of skincare! So I finally had the chance to use Etude House AC Clean Up Mask Sheet.

[REVIEW] Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask

Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask Review

Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask Review:

I love Korean face masks. Mainly because there is a huge variety. There are masks for every type of skin and every skin concern or problem one can imagine. This diversity is simply astonishing. By now I have tried my fair share of face masks and now I feel I can compare them without bias.

I got this Etude House mask when my skin was acting up with the hope of calming my skin down. That particular period was awful because my skin had begun breaking out like crazy and I had no idea why. I am not quite sure if it was because of the mask or because of the complex skincare routine but my face started to slowly get better.

[Review] Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Tea Tree Mask

Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Tea Tree Mask Review

Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Tea Tree Mask Review:

Tea tree is something I would definitely recommend to every pimply girl out there. I swear by tea tree sheet masks, and the Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask is still the best amongst all the others I’ve tried. While tea tree oil may be too harsh on the skin, tea tree sheet masks are a good way to deliver adequate moisture while soothing those vengeful pimples.

Etude House sheet masks were previously featuring the ‘I Need You’ series, which I thought looked quite amateur. I tried the green tea one and was disappointed. Thus I decided that my resources should be channelled to better formulas out there. Recently, I stumbled upon the ‘0.2mm Therapy Air’ series, which looks promising. I feel that the first line of marketing for sheet masks is usually their visual representation, and Etude House has finally gotten it right. I bought a few to try. Let’s see if this tea tree sheet mask will be able to avenge my skin and get rid of those annoying pimples.

Mizon Acence Blemish Out Pink Spot Review

Mizon Acence Blemish Out Pink Spot Review:

Most of my life I have been blessed with good skin.  A pimple spot here and there do pops out, but their numbers have always been countable using one hand. So when the pimples started popping out more frequently and more numerous, I freaked out and started my zealous hunt for a cure.

I googled and lurked online beauty forums, also reading old threads, in the hopes of finding the perfect remedy, and I came across reviews of Mizon Acence Blemish Out Pink Spot.  It is not the first time that I have heard of Mizon and I have already used some of their products such as their snail eye cream and liked it. Since the Mizon Acence Blemish Out Pink Spot was recommended in the AB community, I decided to go and try it, for which I am so delighted I did.
