[REVIEW] Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review:

Purito is a Korean brand that’s been making waves recently, mostly online in the Instagram beauty community, at least from what I’ve seen. Touting itself as brand with “safe and honest ingredients that everyone – friends, family, and even babies – can have faith in”, I have to say that they’ve set some pretty high standards for themselves.

So while I can see that the ingredients used in their products seem promising, you can never know how a product would work for you unless you try it for yourselves. Which is why when I received this as a gift from a friend for my birthday, I was delighted and intrigued. But does this cleanser live up to Purito’s claim of being mild and sensitive-skin friendly?

[REVIEW+ALL SWATCHES] Etude House SHINE Chic Lip Lacquer PK001 Magenta Z & PK002 Muse On

Etude House Shine Chic Lip Lacquer PK001 Magenta Z & PK002 Muse On Review

Etude House SHINE Chic Lip Lacquer PK001 Magenta Z & PK002 Muse On was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Last time Etude House released the Matte Chic Lip Lacquers which were a tremendous success. Are they the best quality matte lipstick – no, but they definitely are affordable and the most long lasting ones I have ever tried. This time, Etude House released ones that promise to give you shine yet long lasting lip looks without smudge. Personally given my dehydrated (and often dry) lips, these ones appeal to me more than the last ones. So, without further ado, I present thee two colors!

[REVIEW] Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream

Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream Review

Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream Review:

Klavuu is such an underrated brand in the sea of Korean beauty brands. It’s the nation’s first beauty company that features pearls in all their products. The benefits of pearl include hydration and brightening, ultimately creating a radiant and glowy complexion.

Around Christmas time last year, I was searching for the perfect makeup base, and stumbled into the huge Klavuu store in Myeongdong. There, I found out about their White Pearlisation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream (what a mouthful!), which is actually the brand’s best-selling product.

So, does it hold its own?

[REVIEW] Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet Basil

Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet Basil Review

Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet Basil Review:

When I heard Skinfood launched this Vege Garden line, I was intrigued to give it a chance, especially for their mask sheet. The Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet seems to be very interesting as it consists of fresh vegetable ingredients (you know, typically Skinfood products) and some of them are never found from other brands. Skinfood have 10 kinds of vegetables and the mask sheet itself is made in Water, Essence and Cream essence type.

As I said, some variants of this Vege Garden Mask Sheet are quite unique and rare, at least for me. Kidney Bean, Basil, Peanut, and Mugwort. I think I’ve never tried any skincare consisting those ingredients. So I gave my first try to Basil mask sheet. Aside from my curiosity, I was attracted since this mask promises to purify pores with its refreshing water-type Basil essence. It would be a good treatment to my big pores (I hope so).

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review:

Ah, I remember I was still a newbie in skincare when I first purchased this product. After ditching those pesky physical scrubs, strengthening my basic routine and used (and also got bored of) konjac sponge, I decided to jump into the world of chemical exfoliations.

Of course, before jumping in, I read a lot of stuff. I wanted to try AHA first to get rid of my acne scars and to brighten my complexion and all the other stuff AHA is supposed to do. After reading and researching a lot about AHA, I decided to try mandelic acid as it is considered suitable for a newbie like me. And after further research, I found this product, AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% and it is easy to get at the nearby drugstore in my area. I kinda don’t want to wait which is why I decided not to buy it online, haha.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2018 Etude House Double Lasting SERUM Foundation SPF25/PA++ N02 Pure

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation SPF25PA N02 Pure Review

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation was purchased by Cosmeperks.

About 2 years ago, Etude House released a foundation called Double Lasting Foundation which became really popular both in Korea and overseas. Etude must have noticed how popular their foundation was and finally change the entire shade range and adding several new shades in the collection for their international customers. I bought it as well and I have to say that it maybe the best foundation Etude House has ever made so I’m pretty excited to see finally they came with a new version!

From Etude House global website, I can see that the Double Lasting Serum Foundation has similar shade range to the original one. Both have 12 shades in 3 different undertones. I really appreciate how Etude House starts to make more shades so most of their customers can try and enjoy their product too.

The hype for the new Double Lasting Serum Foundation is really huge but it’s hard for me to find because there’s no seller has it on stock and Nigama so nice for letting me to join a pre-order for this foundation. I thought it’ll take 7 to 10 days but I only have to wait for 4 days! Kudos for that seller for sending the package really fast.

[REVIEW] Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review:

Ceramides are something that always interest me, so I tend to be interested in products that mention or contain ceramides. I had never tried anything from Holika Holika either, but when I saw that they had this ceramide emulsion I became curious and had many questions. In the past I totally ignored emulsions because I never found one that worked well for me, that was until I tried the Dermatory Hypoallergenic Emollient. After having such a great experience with that emulsion, I was curious to see if another ceramide emulsion would work as well for me as the Dermatory one had.

Holika Holika had another version of this ceramide emulsion in the past, and then they reformulated it. But the previous version seemed to have great reviews and I noticed that this emulsion had three types of ceramides which made me instantly want to try it. I’ve been using this emulsion since May, and the other day I noticed that I had almost finished it, so it felt like the right time to do a review of it.

The Saem Saemmul Yum Yum Lip Syrup Peach Review

The Saem Saemmul Yum Yum Lip Syrup Peach Review:

The cute packaging was the only reason I immediately bought it without thinking twice. The tube looks very cute (even it’s not like a lip product but tomato sauce or my Mom’s syrup essence, haha). For your information, this lip product was launched by The Saem about two months ago. Please, say ‘hi’ to Saemmul Yum Yum Lip Syrup!

Honestly, if they didn’t make this extremely cute packaging, I wouldn’t buy this product, hehe because this Yum Yum Lip Syrup has only 4 color options; Chocolate, Cherry, Strawberry and Peach. The shades are very basic (you know, red, pink and orange) and kinda boring for me.

I was interested to try the Chocolate lip syrup but ended up with the Peach one (since the tube looks prettier with its pastel color, lol). I know, I was like buying the cute package only, but from the deepest of my heart (ha!) I actually wanted to get a good quality tint as well. Ah, okay let’s see!

[REVIEW] My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review:

MY SCHEMING should be a familiar name for any mask sheet fans, although it’s originated from Taiwan not South Korea. However, don’t underestimate Taiwan sheet masks since they have their own superiorities compared to Korean sheet masks. I personally haven’t tried a lot of Taiwan sheet masks brand, especially because they aren’t very popular in my country so that finding a local seller is very very difficult. Nevertheless, I frequently heard that MY SCHEMING is one of the popular brands beside My Beauty Diary, Dr. Morita, LOVEMORE, etc.

I finally had the opportunity to buy MY SCHEMING sheet masks during my holiday trip to Taiwan two weeks ago. And, my goodness, Taiwanese is just like Korean when it’s related to sheet masks; there are so many brands with various ranges and variants plus different discounts and promotions too! Fortunately I found a store that sells MY SCHEMING masks, allows me to buy three different variants which one of them is MY SCHEMING L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask.
