A’Pieu Glycolic Acid Cream Review

A’Pieu Glycolic Acid Cream Review:

I am somewhat of a control freak when it comes to choosing skincare products. This includes spending countless hours googling relevant reviews before purchasing even something as trivial as a lip balm. This time however was an exception. My previous experiences with A’Pieu products so far have been mostly positive, so when I first stumbled onto A’Pieu Glycolic Acid Cream in my local Asian beauty store, I decided to give it a shot and bought it right away. I was a bit surprised when I didn’t find a lot of reviews for this cream, considering how popular this brand seems to be. This also was my first introduction to a product containing AHA (alpha hydroxy acid). So, how did it go?

I am a huge fan of Laneige products so when they came out with the improved version of the Clear C line, in its pretty pink packaging and promises to deliver a more radiant and glowy skin, I was sold.

Innisfree Whitening Pore Synergy Serum Review:

After returning from a trip with my skin badly sunburnt, I was looking for a product that would help to even out my skin tone.

[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.

Farm Stay Tomato Moisture Soothing Gel Review

Farm Stay Tomato Moisture Soothing Gel Review:

The recent increase in hype with soothing gels in the beauty market nudged me to get one and try it myself. I have been using soothing gels since the end of last year but I always stick with aloe vera soothing gels. In this year, I am feeling quite adventurous so I thought that maybe I should try another variant of soothing gel instead. I searched for it on the internet and the results showed a lot of Korean brands that produce different kinds of soothing gel but what snatched my attention the most is the Farm Stay Tomato Moisture Soothing Gel.

So Farm Stay is a Korean skincare and cosmetic brand which uses natural ingredients on their products. There are three kinds of soothing gels that Farmstay offers – aloe vera, snail and tomato gel. I decided to get the tomato soothing gel because its claims look so promising to me. But does it really do what it says? We’ll see about that!

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!

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence Review:

I was searching for a first treatment essence to add in my routine and I stumbled upon this. I compared this to both SKII Treatment Essence and Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence and both are much more expensive for a newbie. So, I picked Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence thinking that if this is good for my routine, I can always upgrade.
