Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence Review:

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.

Cosrx Mela 14 White Ampule Review

Cosrx Mela 14 White Ampule Review:

I am suffering from an acne prone skin that leads to acne scaring. If I get a pimple, I will get panic and use every product that I know to help treating my acne, from the very first step of my skincare routine I always clean my face thoroughly and keeping my face hydrated while treating my acne. After my acne is treated, there’s a chance that I will get an acne scar even when I don’t pick the pimples, from a zit, pustule acne, or a cysts(this type bother me A LOT) there’s a chance from leaving me an acne scars.

So I want to try this ampoule from COSRX from what I read is targeted to lighten any hyperpigmentation or acne scars. COSRX is a popular brand among k-beauty bloggers, their products are always on a hot topic, raved by everyone who suffered from skin problems and sensitivenes. COSRX always bring their products to minimum usage of ingredients, and only use the ingredients that is actually needed to heal skin problems without adding unnecessary things in their product, keeping it minimalist in ingredients.

I am also the one who is suffered from skin problems, so I need to try one of their product to help fixing my skin. I bought this ampoule for around $20 on local online shop, not so expensive I think as there are lot of ampoules that more expensive than this.

[REVIEW] Skin Watchers Galactomyces Whitening Essence

Skin Watchers Galactomyces Whitening Essence Review

Skin Watchers Galactomyces Whitening Essence Review:

Skin Watchers is a brand I remember seeing many people talking about however, after I started learning more about it, I feel like not many people know about it. I’ve wanted to try a product with galactomyces for so long so I just impulsively bought this because it said galactomyces and it was a good deal.

Oh little did I know.. This product actually has a pH of 4-5 (which sounds amazing to me since I have acne aka my skin’s pH is somewhere around 7.5 to 8 so it needs to get lower. Also, it contains A LOT of amazing ingredients and my beloved aronia which I have no idea what it can actually do BUT it tastes great in tea (I’m kidding it’s in the berries with the highest amount of antioxidants aka what makes the skin clear, but it does taste GREAT).

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Review

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Review:

I love chemical exfoliation. It truly has been a skincare routine game changer for me (I even rarely do physical exfoliation previously). This step has helped to even my skin tone, tackle pimples and pigmentations, gives a brighter complexion and smoother skin.

After discovering the wonderful world of chemical exfoliation, I began searching for more to try. I already have an AHA treatment in my routine, so I wanted to add in an exfoliating toner to be used in rotation with the treatment. And of course, I could not help but seeing people raving about The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution almost everywhere on Instagram. With the very affordable price tag, big size and low pH formula, of course I was so intrigued to give it go!

[REVIEW] Etude House Sun Blind Cushion SPF50+ PA+++

Etude House Sun Blind Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Etude House Sun Blind Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for Etude House products, and they remain (as previously mentioned) one of my favourite Korean brands. I know a lot of people dislike their products, but for me their products tend to be inexpensive ones that don’t irritate my skin and generally work out okay. Last summer I was on the hunt for a way to reapply sun screen during the day, because I live in a country with extreme UV rays (all year round) where it’s possible to get sunburnt in ten minutes. Because I am unable to tan, and also have mild rosacea which means I should use sun screen every day and avoid the sun. These issues or factors made me want to have some way to reapply sunscreen over bb cream during the bright sunny summer days. But even people who can tan, should avoid some sun exposure because the UV rays can cause both skin cancer and age our skin.

So, when Etude House released this sun screen cushion designed to be applied over make up, I found myself unable to resist ordering one. While it has different sun screen filters than I usually prefer, I felt that was okay because it’s designed to go over a bb cream or foundation and it won’t be directly in contact with my skin. For once I didn’t buy this for the packaging either, because to be honest I’m not a huge fan of the striped design, but the design doesn’t matter for sunscreen, after all.

[REVIEW] Natural Pacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence

Natural Pacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence Review

Natural Pacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence Review:

Hello guys! So this holiday I’m trying various product to ‘fix’ my skin due to stress from the exams PLUS that time of the month that I got at early December, and my option fall to this Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence from Natural Pacific because my skin got so bad like the texture was so bumpy, dehydrated and many acne scars remained on my skin. Then I thought it might be good to fix my dehydrated skin first. So the first step is I decided to buy an essence or an ampoule or a serum that will fill up and fix my skin with moisture. I always think that your face will always get better IF you always maintain the moisture. Another factor is this product also claims to lighten acne scars. So I thought it was like killing two birds with one stone!

Then I saw at an online website that held about 40% discount I just didn’t think twice, I must bought it-it was such a good deal though..haha. So I got this around $14, such a good deal right? Natural Pacific is a brand that claims to use natural ingredients to all of their product. Another product that is also trending is the Fresh Herb Serum. But I don’t have so much money to buy all of the essence, so lets try it one by one and prove it in a month whether it works on my skin or not.

Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

One of the key factor to successfully protect your natural skin barrier is to protect the skin from UV rays. Yes, I am talking about sun-protector products. My journey to find the sunscreen of my life has never ended. Now I have to admit my skin is the “super acne-prone” kind of skin. If it does not like a product, it will tell me without any delays. I’ve been through the time that I’ve bought a full size sunscreen after taking good looks at the ingredient list, just to realize that my skin cannot handle it. Of course, I’ve wasted quite an amount of money to learn a lesson that what my skin likes and what it does not.

To sum up, I understand the feeling that people always tell you to put sunscreen on to protect your skin but there are TONS (literally) of products which guarantee to do you good. Where to start now? Well, I am writing this review and hope that it will give you one insight into a skin-friendly sun cream. Having learnt a lesson from the buy-a-full-size-product thing, I decided that I will start with the trial size first. I purchased the mini size 20ml of Innisfree Perfect UV protection cream triple care SPF50+ PA+++ because it was the only kind of product that has mini size available. Don’t you worry. For sure, I carefully checked the ingredient list before buying it. 😉

Innisfree offers a variety of sunscreens, mostly physical sunscreen, so that every skin type, even the most sensitive will have a chance to grab on their products.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%

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.
