[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] Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream

Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream Review

Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Lately Cosrx seems to be on fire and releasing a lot of new products! Which honestly is quite exciting, because well I’ve always been a fan of their products. So, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to try this new product of theirs, I was instantly curious. Why was I instantly curious, you might wonder, well because of the name! Is it a toner or a cream? A mix of the two? Something like an emulsion? Well, these kinds of questions were going through my head, and honestly, I do like to try new products, especially those that I am curious about.

First of all, I wanted to find out what kind of product it was. The name is confusing to me, and well I wasn’t sure if I was getting a toner, emulsion or a cream. Apparently, this can be used as either a toner or a cream, depending on your skin type. To me that sounds bizarre, I mean how can a product really be either a cream or a toner? But I guess what Cosrx means is that if you have dry or dehydrated skin, you can use this product as a toner. But those with combination or oily skin can use it as a cream. Honestly though, I still must admit I am sceptical about how a product can be either a toner or a cream.

[REVIEW] Heimish Low pH Hydrating Mask Sheet

Heimish Low pH Hydrating Mask Sheet Review

Heimish Low pH Hydrating Mask Sheet Review:

Doesn’t this product name make you curious? As a matter of fact, it does to me. Heimish Low pH Hydrating Mask Sheet emphasizes to have pH level of 5.5 (±0.5) that even the cover is full of number 5 and 5 linked, not the brand or product name like other sheet masks.

Moreover, I had no experience with Heimish products before. So I got attracted to (1) Heimish brand, and (2) how it claims to make skin healthy by giving the dream skin which pH level is 5 – 6.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Skin

Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Skin Review

Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Skin Review:

As far as I know, the Jeju Lava Seawater line makes up a portion of Innisfree’s skincare range targeted towards anti-aging and intensive moisture. Clearly, being in my early twenties and having more of a combination-to-oily skin type, I’m not necessarily their target market.

However, when we were having a meet up and my friend was gushing about the Jeju Lava Seawater Deep Essence, I found myself really intrigued. And so, with having some generous friends within the skincare community, at one point, I ended up with a trial set of the Jeju Lava Seawater line. The rest, I guess you could say, is history… or is it?

[REVIEW] Scinic Intensive Dual Mask Snail Solution

Scinic Intensive Dual Mask Snail Solution Review

Scinic Intensive Dual Mask Snail Solution Review:

To be honest, besides theirco famous Honey All in One Ampoule, Scinic never quite stayed on my personal radar. But after decent results with that product, when I got this sheet mask, it caught my interest as being a product formulated without the inclusion of hyaluronic acid/sodium hyaluronate and drying alcohols.

When I first started out in my skincare journey, I was personally wary of these two ingredients (particularly if they’re high up in the ingredients list), so seeing a sheet mask without them was intriguing. Adding in that this is a two-piece mask also adds to the intrigue, to be honest!

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2 B5 Review

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Review:

Who has never heard The Ordinary brand before? Well, I’m sure everybody ever heard at least once. The Ordinary is such a hype; there’re many reasons for it, though. Maybe because of its economical price, or its specific claim for only particular problem of your skin, or because of its after-usage effect. That’s why I decided to give it a try.

The Face Shop Fresh Jeju Lotus Soothing Gel Review

The Face Shop Fresh Jeju Lotus Soothing Gel Review:

I use soothing gels often, and with the (really good) soothing gels I have used recently I felt they were a waste of gel when used on the body, given to their amount and price. This gel is to me something that is not wasteful, and it looks like a pretty flower as well as it smells like one! It’s not a perfect product but it is worth every penny.

[REVIEW] Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder

Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder Review

Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder Review:

Developed by the pharmaceutical company, Daiichi Sankyo Healthcare, the Minon Amino Moist product line is a skincare brand targeted towards those with dry and/or sensitive skin. To be completely honest, this brand wasn’t on my radar at all until I was searching for powder cleansers to travel with and found it for cheap on a local reselling platform.

Looking up the product and thus brand guide, it was intriguing to find out that the brand focuses on developing skincare focused on amino acids to aid in improving the skin’s moisture barrier overtime. However, I must say that the little @cosme sticker on this product’s image thumbnails while googling definitely helped in sealing the quick purchase (though, I’m still not so sure in which year it got into the highly esteemed rankings).
