[REVIEW] Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++  was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I was very excited to first hear of a sun cream specific for winter, and even more so when I saw it had a super high SPF. Everyone, and that includes “skin care gods” like Koreans, thinks they are safe in the winter, that the sun will not get them. Here in Korea it’s especially difficult to recognize the difference between a cloudy day or a polluted day – unless you are sensitive, asthmatic, or have an app that gives you air notifications.

So whereas I accept that in cloudy days people may be deceived into thinking the sun “is okay”, here we have more polluted days than cloudy ones. And in the dry winter how can I use the anti-sebum sun creams I use in the summer?

So with a sun cream for this especially difficult season, of course it spiked my interest. Weirdly enough it isn’t as popular here as I thought it would be!

[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?

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.

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.

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review:

Huxley is a pretty niche brand that is actually picking up some steam in South Korea as well as in the rest of the world. It features prickly pear seed oil from the Sahara Desert in all of its products to promote a healthy and glowing complexion.

I was recommended the Brightly Ever After Essence for brightening and hydrating effects by a close friend, and decided to give it a go.

So, does it live up to its hype?

[REVIEW] COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review:

Having really oily skin and big pores, and also being in a humid climate like Singapore, has caused my skin to be peppered with blackheads and tiny clogged pores. To solve this problem, I have searched high and low for a suitable product that would provide oil control and not dry out my skin at the same time. I came across the COSRX blackhead power liquid, which is a chemical exfoliator.

[REVIEW] Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++

Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

I didn’t notice when Etude House posted their UV Double Cut series on their social media account until I watched Law Of The Jungle where Red Velvet’s Seulgi using this product and, yes, I wanted to try it out too. Perfect timing since I needed to buy a new sunscreen at the moment.

So, Etude House UV Double Cut line consists of 3 products which are Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++, Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid SPF 48 PA+++ and Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++. All of them are interesting, though. The Fresh Sun Gel is well marked as the best seller and winner of Marie Claire’s Smart Beauty Award. The Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid has extra function to brighten up skin tone. And the Clear Sun Stick looks very easy and quick to use.

To be honest, I eliminated the Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid once I read it highly contains Titanium Dioxide (it tends to, or absolutely will, leave whitecast and I want to avoid that). I did the same for Fresh Sun Gel since it has alcohol in its ingredients list. I know, I sound too picky but I really want a friendly product for my sensitive skin without any whitecast effect, so yeah, the Clear Sun Stick seemed to be the best choice.

The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review

The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review:

I’ve been using The Saem’s Pink sun cream for almost a year now, and you can say that while I’ve grown bored of it, it’s still the one sunscreen that I always reach for. Earlier this year when I went to order it, I noticed that The Saem had a couple of different sunscreens, ones that I had never seen before, namely this green sun cream. Naturally, I looked it up and found that the ingredients looked very similar to the pink one.

Because I find the pink one a bit drying in winter, I wondered whether the green version would be more moisturizing and better for winter than the pink version. I decided to try the green version out after noticing that titanium dioxide was higher up in the ingredients list than in the pink version. Mostly I just decided to try it out because I was feeling bored with the pink version of the sunscreen.

Missha Flash Up Sun SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Missha Flash Up Sun SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

My skin has recently been the driest it’s ever been, and luckily enough it happened just around the time that Missha launched their Flash Up Sun line. All the other sunscreens I own became too drying and matte for me, and the Flash Up Sun sunscreen was marketed as a glowy finish, so naturally I had to pick it up (and not to mention the packaging is super pretty too!)
