[REVIEW] Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla Review

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla Review:

Despite the disappointing experience I had with the moist version of this bb cream, I still found myself becoming curious about how the matte bb cream would perform. After all I always trust Etude House products and their bb cream was the first one I ever used. Plus, I’ve never been a fan of dewy finishes, so it wasn’t surprising that I didn’t like the moist one.

I also read some reviews where people said the matte wasn’t too drying and it was just less dewy which sounded perfect to me. However, I was concerned the formula of the bb cream wouldn’t be any better than the moist version. But how could I ever know if the formula was as bad if I never tested it myself? It seems wrong to decide something must be bad without actually trying it out, which was why I decided to try the matte version instead of turning my back on it.

[REVIEW] Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch | Before & After Pics

Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch Review

Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch Review:

When I ran out of my favorite acne patch and it was also sold out everywhere, finally I had to move forward to another brand. I actually did not search any reviews on internet though I’m not that experienced with acne patch products. Just by seeing this product was ready on my favorite online shop, I immediately ordered it.

I chose Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch because it contains tea tree leaf oil which I believe, is a good ingredient to beat blemishes effectively as it contains strong antibacterial and antifungal components. I rarely use Skinfood skincare products, I usually buy only their makeup line, but since this brand is well-known for their natural and great formula, so I expected this product would give a good result for my acne prone skin.

[REVIEW] CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient

CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient Review

Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Because my skin is dry and dehydrated, I’ve long known that I need some kind of emulsion or emollient in my routine. Honestly, every thing I’ve tried until now hasn’t really done that much for my skin. Which is why I haven’t tried any for a while especially since because I didn’t think I needed one during summer. However, now that it’s autumn I thought it’s a perfect time to start looking for one to use during winter.

At first glance I thought this Dermatory emollient didn’t look any different from any other emulsion I’ve used before and I wondered if it was very similar to the Dr. Jart one, if it was just Clio trying to create a dupe or something similar. However, once I looked at the Dermatory website and saw how it was free of 20 harmful ingredients and that it contained shea butter, allantoin and ceramides I became interested to see how it well it works. According to Dermatory it also should be soothing and help to repair the moisture barrier, well I’ve read that from many products before and few actually seem to live up to that claim. So, from the start I was skeptical and unsure if I could believe those claims yet hopeful, so read on to see if I was disappointed or happy in the end.

[REVIEW] Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum

Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum Review

Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum Review:

Sometimes I wonder if it is me or if is human nature to be self-contradictory.  On one hand we look for value for money, but on the other hand when products seem too inexpensive compared to similar in the range, there are doubts over its efficacy and authenticity.

I chanced upon the brand Iunik and liked its packaging simplicity as well as the reasonable price point.  But really, what brand is this? And for the product claims, the pricing seemed too good to be true. After googling on it, alas with limited information found, I decided to take the plunge anyway.

So this is what I found for sharing – Iunik is from South Korea and a newbie to the (I would say) very saturated skincare industry, having entered only in November 2016.  Its name actually stands for Ideal, Unique, Natural, Ingredients, Know-how.  Although the brand is new, the company apparently has more than 10 years of experience in skin care and cosmetics products, mainly exporting out of South Korea.

It offers quite a number of products and I decided on the Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum because my dehydrated skin really needs help.

[REVIEW] Leaders Clinic Insolution Vaseline Moisturizing Mask

Leaders Clinic Insolution Vaseline Moisturizing Mask Review

Leaders Clinic Insolution Vaseline Moisturizing Mask Review:

This is the second of the new Vaseline masks from Leaders. I enjoyed the red (nourishing) version enough and gladly when I bought it I also bought this one. This one is moisturizing, and it’s blue (which is less pretty but more accurately similar to Vaseline itself). I use Vaseline literally every day for its repairing abilities. I can tell you right away this mask feels more like Vaseline because of the moisture and skin-repairing part (you’ll see my pores later), and there is not much difference between the two masks. But they are different!

LEADERS Clinic Step Solution Shining Effect Brightening Ex Black Pearl Mask Review:

Leaders is one of the first brands I discovered when I got into Asian beauty. Everyone seems to looove the brand. This is the first mask I’ve tried from them so I’m pretty excited hehe. Of course, I’ve got my hopes very high because of that and fingers crossed, it’ll be great.. I specifically chose this one because it looks fun, not because of the ingredients.

[REVIEW] Trader Joe’s Rose Facial Oil

Trader Joe’s Rose Facial Oil Review

Trader Joe’s Rose Facial Oil Review:

Luxury facial oils are having a big moment in Western skin care, and a lot of those oils come with premium price points. It’s easy to be tempted by the lovely textures, delicious fragrances and beautifully-designed packaging. I was teetering on the edge of forking over lots of cash for one of these oils, but before I did, I ran to Trader Joe’s for chocolate and as I rounded the aisle my eye landed on this little bottle; I didn’t hesitate a single second before grabbing it up.

At the price I paid, I knew I could use it up for the ends of my hair or my cuticles if my face didn’t like it, but I’m glad to say that my face really, really likes it, and I get to enjoy a little almost-luxury-oil moment every evening when I do my skin care.
