[REVIEW] Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner

Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner Review

Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner Review:

These days, Isntree has been booming in the Asian Beauty community with their simple no-frills skincare products. They first garnered popularity with their famous Hyaluronic acid toner which I also thoroughly enjoyed, resulting in me falling in love with the brand.

Isntree’s Green Tea Fresh Toner on the other hand, appealed to me due to it being a light watery toner which I find more ideal for daytime use for combo or oily-skinned folks, especially those living in countries with high humidity all year long.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] BANILA Co Covericious Power Fit Foundation 19 Cream

BANILA Co Covericious Power Fit Foundation 19 Cream Review

BANILA Co Covericious Power Fit Foundation 19 Cream Review:

I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for a really long time. If I’m not mistaken, this was released back in March or April this year but at that time I wasn’t aware of the foundation, not until I saw the reviews a month ago. I only saw some (I think it was less than 5) reviews about it in English and it’s surprising because BANILA Co is a pretty famous Korean beauty brand internationally, but there are tons of videos and blogs talking about it in Korean because it was so hyped and popular there.

BANILA CO is one of the ‘up-there’ road shop Korean brands, means they have more expensive price compared to other road shop brands like Etude, Skinfood, The Saem etc yet doesn’t belong to the luxurious brands either. In my country BANILA CO is pretty expensive so the only way I can afford the foundation is by buying it directly from Korea to get more affordable price.

BANILA CO advertised it as a ‘full coverage’ foundation with lightweight feeling and stay up to 36 hours of wearing with Hydrolyzed Collagen that will help with skin elasticity. After I read the claim I was so intrigued! As a woman who almost being 30, any product containing collagen is a must try so let’s see if the foundation will do wonders on my skin or not.

[REVIEW] OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Essence SPF50+ PA++++

OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Essence SPF50+ PA++++ Review

OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Essence SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

If you like Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence, you will probably love this sunscreen too. To me, this is all the goodness of Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence minus the alcohol and fragrance. So you won’t have to suffer from the hideous smell of alcohol in disguise of very heavy citrusy fragrance and it won’t irritate your sensitive skin too. Honestly, after testing it out, I keep wondering why people don’t talk about it because it truly deserves the love.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo

Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review

Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review:

I guess I was so late in discovering this concealer because when I was browsing to find a good Korean concealer to replace my beloved A’Pieu moist creamy concealer, this showed up with the most good reviews. Everyone was talking and did review on it and I wonder how I didn’t hear anything about it before. Even Morgan from TheBeautyBreakdown, my favorite Youtuber, said that this concealer is pretty good and didn’t crease on her. I was sold once I saw her review about it.

The price is very affordable for a product from Missha and I’m happy to see that they have more than 2 shades available. I always had a hard time in finding the perfect concealer shade for me since I need a lighter shade than my skin tone because I used concealer to highlight my under eyes area. That’s why I’m excited to see they have a shade light enough!

If I’m not mistaken, they also have the pot/cream version of this concealer but in my experience, cream concealer never worked on me so I picked the liquid version. Just for information, a cream concealer usually has more coverage than a liquid one so if you like this concealer but need a better coverage, maybe you can try the pot version.

[REVIEW] SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review:

Beauty trends may revolve and changes every now and then, including the star ingredients in beauty products. There were times when almost all brands suddenly developed products with snail mucin, aloe vera, galactomyces, etc. Looking back in 2018, I think centella asiatica is the star ingredient! So many beauty brands invented new products with centella asiatica in their formulation and it became one of the selling points. No wonder, centella asiatica (also known as tiger grass or ‘pegagan’) has been famous for generations as medication that soothes skin damages, hydrates, and reduces uneven skin tones.

With all the hype marketing, of course I fell into Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream when it was launched! I couldn’t find many reviews on this moisturizer because Skin1004 is more famous for its Madagascar Cenetella Asiatica ampoule and whenever I Googled, reviews for the ampoule popped up. From the few reviews I found, they said Skin1004 Cream is lightweight and non-sticky, so as a normal-to-oily skin bearer, I chose to go with it. A week later, Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream arrived to my house.

Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I thought this product would be a nice replacement for my Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence in the sense that it provides gentle correction to even out the complexion, so I can save time by skipping CC cream. I have heard people raving about the original Tone Up Essence in lavender purple hue. So when Rohto released the mint green version this summer for redness-prone skin, I decided to give it a try to justify the hype.

[REVIEW] A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel

A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel Review

A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel Review:

As I constantly struggle with hormonal cystic acne, I try not to use heavy creams that are oil based, especially in the summer time. Now that it’s getting warmer in Canada, I am starting to breakout more. I was eagerly looking for a gel cream to not only hydrate but heal my skin, and I came across the A’pieu Madecassoside Cica Gel.

A’pieu is really famous for their Madecassoside line. They have a massive skincare range from toners and ampoules to creams and cleansing foams. I am an avid user of the Madecassoside sun cream and I absolutely adore it, but I’ll save that for another review.

The gel comes in a tub and a tube that are both 50ml. I chose the tube version for sanitary purposes as I don’t like the idea of dipping my fingers in.

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I was always on the hunt for a good physical sunscreen, until now. It’s difficult to find one that doesn’t give a white cast and applies smoothly. Sadly, there isn’t a lot of options especially in the Korean beauty industry.

The ones I have tried in the American beauty industry either has too much white cast, is very thick, and is too expensive. While I was scrolling and doing my research on sunscreen, I came across this product. It is known to have Centella Asiatica and is physical sunscreen. So, I thought it would be a good candidate to try!

I was not familiar with Goodal brand before, neither had I ever heard of it. I was shopping to fill my sheet masks stocks when suddenly came across this Goodal Quince Infused Honey Mild Sheet Mask, and decided to try one after seeing the affordable price. And, what is a ‘quince’ actually?
