Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack Review

Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack Review:

I’ve been an avid anime fan since Heidi first played on Portuguese television, and was aware of what Japanese animation was. That was so many years ago! Of course, as a fan, I also fell for Pokemon when the time came. And for someone who fell for Asian beauty (and this part I’m sure you understand) I saw the new collection and simply had to have it! I bought all the products I wanted as they came out, but for some reason I missed this one!

I just happened to be walking by on some-day-afternoon and saw this Tonymoly Buried Digda Peel Off Pack (imagine how shocked I was), of course I bought it on impulse. At first look it seems like the black masks going around the internet, the ones who peel off your black pores. And reading the description it clearly says it cleans the pores. So yay! I got it and let’s start! This was literally the first time I used a peel off pack, so I’ll walk you through it.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review:

Gone are the cold morning airs. It’s been very hot these past few days from where I live which means that summer has officially started. You see, I have issues with summer. First, I find the humid air pesky because it literally slaps me in the face whenever I go out. Secondly, the weather seems to draw out the oiliest in me. Can you imagine how icky that is? It’s as if the universe assisted me in prepping my face with oil so that it could attract all the dirt and dust outside.

Super gross, I know! You’d probably nod incessantly and yell go girl! If I say that I seriously need deep cleansing. We all know that impurities means breakout, right? So before things get worse, I decided to find something that could help me prevent major skin catastrophe.

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream Review:

Nature Republic is a brand that is close to my heart. I’ve considered it as safe-buy brand for I’ve never experienced breakout with any of their products I’ve tried so far. I also think that their price range is decent although some line could be very expensive but generally prices are okay, not too cheap that you would doubt efficacy.

I first encountered Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream few years ago when I was looking for something to give my mom after my trip to Korea. She was crazy about moisturizers so I bought couple of jars to gift her and she really liked it. I didn’t get one for myself because I honestly don’t find the need of moisturizing. It is only recently that felt the need to take care of my skin better because… okay, I’m not getting any younger. Let’s see the verdict.

Nature Republic AQUA Max Watery Toner & Emulsion Review:

As you can imagine just by reading my skin type, it is a very troublesome skin. I started having acne at age 9, then, while still having it, my skin became allergic, sensitive, mixed oily and dry, and all before I even had my period! As times passed and I started finding out what is good and bad on my skin and it became more controllable and now most people can’t even imagine any of those things by looking at my skin. Which is a good thing!

My first trick is to always, at any given time, have emergency lotion in the house. A lotion focused on hydrating, without making my skin oilier, something nice and calming, and with a nice smell. Something I can use on the worst skin days.
I have tried and been satisfied with two Korean products when it comes to that, and this one is the only I still use.

Now, let me tell you, Nature Republic is like Tony Moly – usually you love some stuff and hate others, but they are cheap so you can always give them a try.

I have heard bad reviews, or disappointed reviews regarding the cream on this Aqua max line(but also lots of good reviews). But never regarding the Nature Republic Aqua Max Watery Toner & Emulsion that we are seeing here today.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask & Clay Mousse Mask | Original | Review

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask & Clay Mousse Mask Original Review

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask & Clay Mousse Mask Original Review:

Back in Europe, even when my skincare routine was as basic as 3 steps – foam cleanser, water mist, and cream, every other day I did a clay mask. Literally, I had powdered purified clay to which I would add water and make a paste, and then apply it to my face. The reason is that clay cleans and gently removes the dead skin.

So, of course when it comes to Korean skin care I also find it important to have a good clay mask, right? There are several good ones out there, but to me the one that takes the prize is the Innisfree Jeju volcanic clay mask in original. The collection has several different types, this one, the super version – for a stronger effect, and a pack for localized treatment, and of course a cleanser, a toner, a lotion, the list goes on.

Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon Review

During puberty, I was lucky enough to have an acne-free face. I do, however, suffer from having a very dull skin. My face may be blemish free yet I feel that something is really wrong with it. A friend once suggested me to use astringent to remove the dead skin but I was really hesitant because I feel that it is way too harsh on skin. 10 years later and I still wear this dull-looking face; still have this negative perception towards peeling. To address this issue, I am in constant search for products that could alleviate my skin condition in a gentle yet effective way. From sugar scrubs to peeling gels –where some are effective and most are just meh; now I am giving this Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon a shot, because why not?

Nature Republic Rose Real Nature Ampoule Review

Nature Republic Rose Real Nature Ampoule Review:

Nature Republic, to me, is a surprising company since you can find good quality products for every type of skin, for a very appealing price! Not to mention, their discounts are very friendly. As an online member living in Korea I have the chance to participate every month in the Shake Box event, where you can buy a box of, basically, way cheaper products (even though they literally have the same boxes every month, it’s still a pretty good deal). So, I was not aiming for this particular item, but since I got it I decided to try it. I mean, it is made out of rose, if that doesn’t appeal to you… then you’re probably not European 😀 But I do love me some rose products. Now, you should know there are two real nature ampoules for every scent, one with oil and one without – this one is  without oil so think of it as a rich essence.
Did I mention it comes in a glass bottle? It’s lovely just looking at it.

Innisfree Bija Cica Balm Review:

As an avid Innisfree fan of course I wanted to try this product as soon as it was announced. Of course I took the opportunity and applied for a tester set of 5 days. Innisfree Bija Cica Balm was released with the same base idea of the previous True Care Cica Intensive balm, and everyone in Korea went crazy as soon as it came out. It doesn’t retail for a particularly cheap price, 22000 KRW, but also not expensive enough that it would stop people from trying it. Continue reading if it really worth the hype or not.
