Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie Review

Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie Review:

As a girl with a very oily T-zone, to set that area with a powder is a must. My cheeks area has dry patches so mainly I use powder only on the T-zone, chin, a little bit on the outer part of my cheek (just to set the foundation so blush, bronzer, and highlighter can be applied more smoothly), and under eyes area to set my concealer.

I had tried so many powders, from compact powder to loose powder but so far I found that my skin hates loose powder. It’s too drying and emphasis my textures while for compact powder, they are too cakey and I found only one powder that looks good on my skin but unfortunately it’s too expensive and I can’t keep purchasing it.

When I was searching for a good Korean powder (since it’s more affordable and easy to get), I saw Clio has a ‘Moist Powder’ as part of their Nudism collection. I knew Nudism cushion is really popular but I never saw anyone talking about this powder but based on their website, the powder seems to have a moist effect and won’t make skin looks dry. They claim this powder will suit every skin type, even dry skin because it contains essence that gives moisture while it mattifies the skin at the same time. I was really excited to find a powder with a skincare benefit!

They only have 3 shades and from the picture, I’m pretty sure the shades are good for fair to light-medium skin tones. Not rare for a Korean brand but usually Clio has wider shade range so it’s a bit unexpected for them to have 3 shades only.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review:

Admittedly, I always tend to stray away from most hyped up things in fear of being disappointed and/or underwhelmed. Hence, the main reason why I’m only now offering up a review for one of The Ordinary’s various skincare products; this in particular being a destashed item from my friend as she found it to not work for her (allergic reactions, irritation, etc). Thinking that it’d be worth a try considering my penchant for anything targeting pigmentation issues (arbutin is a well-known skin brightening agent!), I decided to put it to the test. Would the YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) rule ring true?

[REVIEW] Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

The summer season in Hong Kong means extreme heat and humidity — not the best conditions for my oily and acne-prone skin. It also makes skincare and makeup application a bit of a challenge — it’s always a race to put my “face” on before I start sweating it off. When I found out that Moonshot was coming out with a primer that claimed to not only make makeup last longer but also provide strong UV protection, I knew I had to give it a go.

I have tried a few Moonshot makeup products in the past and haven’t been disappointed, so I had high hopes for their newly-released Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF 50+ PA+++.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser (New Packaging)

Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser Review

Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser Review:

Innisfree is slowly renewing all of its superfood lines. I thought at first they were literally renewing (like, updating the products) but let me tell you beforehand when it comes to the Blueberry line nothing changed except for the design! I have two products from this line so I decided to check the ingredients, and at first in this cleanser the new version’s website ingredients were different!

So after a long messy week I came to know the ingredients on the website were for a future (unreleased) big version of this product. And no, the big version isn’t different, but since it’s big it has “more” blueberry and glycerin and etc, because they are measured by physical amount and not percentage.

With that out of the way, when I first started using this cleanser (actually even when I bought it) I was expecting it to be like a less good version of the Krave Matcha Hemp Hydrating cleanser. I expected it to be “just a foam” that stripped the moisture a little, but with a low pH would be less harmful for the skin. Well, I must say it did surprise me and it’s way better than I thought!

[REVIEW] Shiseido Senka Perfect White Clay Cleansing Foam

Shiseido Senka Perfect White Clay Cleansing Foam Review

Shiseido Senka Perfect White Clay Cleansing Foam Review:

Well, this brand SENKA is very popular these days! I’ve seen a lot of people opened pre-order SENKA from Malaysia, Japan, and Singapore. However, you may notice that the variant I’m using is not THAT famous SENKA variant.

I use SENKA Perfect White Clay while the popular one is SENKA Perfect Whip. SENKA Perfect Whip is said to be very effective and does its claim very well despite the economical price. So, will SENKA Perfect White Clay just be a dead duck compared to its sibling or not?

[REVIEW] Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige

Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige Review

Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige Review:

With the satisfying result of the Etude’s Active Proof Shield Wear Color Tint, it makes this foundation listed on my ‘next-to-try’ list. I’ve been trying to find it everywhere but the only way I can get it is by get it directly from Korea and it takes 4 to 6 weeks so I decide to wait until someone stock it and I’m so happy that finally my local seller has it on stock!

So Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base is a part of their latest summer collection, the Active Proof line. Consists of various products, this collection is perfect for summer season since it’s waterproof, lightweight, and stay all day. I don’t know exactly what this product is since Etude House didn’t explain if it’s a foundation, BB cream, or just a skin tint.

The ‘waterproof and stay all day part’ sounds too good to be true but the lip tint performs exactly as they said so I believed them and decide to try the foundation. If it’s truly stay all day, it’d be a good news for everyone with oily skin.

But unfortunately, they only make it in 2 different shades. There are definitely more than 2 skin tones in this world but as usual from a Korean brand, you can’t expect them to have wide range of shades selection. I got the lightest shade but somehow I found it’s not exactly my perfect shade so the shade range really disappoints me.

[REVIEW] 2018 NEW Benton Aloe Soothing Mask Pack

Benton Aloe Soothing Mask Pack Review

Benton Aloe Soothing Mask Pack Review:

Truth be told I first got this mask for testing from Benton. But then I liked it so much I bought it for myself again. I think it’s one of those products I’ll probably add to my shopping cart, at least one, whenever I order from Benton.

Benton is a cruelty free brand that truly tries to do what’s best for the skin, especially younger and developing skins can benefit from this brand and from their Aloe collection. I also have the same collection toner and soothing gel and let me tell you that if you like them you definitely want to try this mask too!

[REVIEW] Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review:

Scinic is well known for their Honey all in one ampoule, and it’s an ampoule that many people enjoy using, so naturally when Scinic came out with three new ampoules I was curious to see how they would compare to the old ones. They actually came out in 2017 so they aren’t that new (oops) but it seems that not many people have tried them or written about them. The new (ceramide, centella and vitamin c) ampoules are larger (300ml) than the honey, aqua and snail ones, and also come with a pump which makes them more convenient to use.

I couldn’t resist buying (and trying) this ceramide ampoule when I found out it also contained shea butter. I’ve always been looking for products that contain both of these things because I think it sounds like a good combination. The fact that there were no reviews made me a bit nervous but in the end I just decided to try it out, even if it was a bit of a risky purchase. Read on to see if my risky purchase was a good or bad idea.

Etude House 3 Minutes Care Mask Turmeric Review

Etude House 3 Minutes Care Mask Turmeric Review:

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for this collection! It copies the Ottogi (famous food brand) design. It includes “copies” of their mayo (in shower pack), curry (this mask) and jajjang (brown mask), with also some Ottogi inspired morning mask sheets. I chose curry for my first one because it’s the best food in the world!
