[REVIEW] 2019 NEW COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner Review

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When Nigama contacted me to do a sponsored review and offered COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner, I was very interested seeing this product’s advertisement. First, I had no experience trying COSRX products before (yes I know I was outdated for not joining the hype); and second, COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner hadn’t been sold in my country yet. Aaanndd, it has such fascinating ingredients list I expect quite a lot! After rambling around the product details on the internet (which was very very rare), I found out that COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner was a product of COSRX x SYDNEY collaboration. That SYDNEY name didn’t ring a bell to me, but it might sound familiar for some of you.

To be honest, my previous SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner hadn’t ran out yet, but on the bright side, I could do the exact comparison between COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner and it. A little flashback, I had to remind how satisfied I was with the latter and I’m quite curious to see whether COSRX could beat the SOME BY MI result. So, in order to make it more evident, I decided to use them parallel to both sides of my face.

[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.

Cosrx Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream Review

Cosrx Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream Review:

I needed a new product as a moisturizer, since the one I was using was too heavy and made my skin very oily towards the end of the day. Coincidentally, I came across Morgan Stewart’s video where she talked about this product. Since I always trust her recommendations, I decided to place this item into the cart (with bunch of other items).

[REVIEW] Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Review

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Review:

If I could associate a single word to Blithe Cosmetics, it would be INNOVATION. This brand does not carry the typical skin care products most people are familiar with. In fact, when I first encountered the brand and their products, I was utterly clueless. Blithe is a brand that caters to people living a busy lifestyle in an urban setting. Hence, most of their products aim to address skin concerns brought about by pollution, such as fine dust, in a manner that is both efficient and enjoyable.

Honestly speaking, I haven’t tried a lot of their products because they are a bit on the pricier spectrum. The one and only product I have from them is the one I’m reviewing today – the Blithe Patting Splash Mask in the variant Energy Yellow Citrus and Honey. I got this patting mask as a part of a curated box from an Asian Beauty website which is basically a set of products from different brands sold at a much cheaper price than their retail value.

It actually took months before I opened this up because, as I’ve mentioned earlier, I was clueless as to what it is and what it does. After doing a bit of research and finding out what an amazing product this actually is, I immediately dived in for a splash (get it?) and never looked back.

I’m already halfway into using up this bottle so I think I can now share my honest opinion on this.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Innisfree Jelly Cheek 01 Apricot

Innisfree Jelly Cheek 01 Apricot Review

Innisfree Jelly Cheek 01 Apricot Review:

The Jelly cheek from Innisfree actually is not new. They already released it back then along with their spring collection last year if I’m not mistaken. I remember seeing it everyday on my Instagram feed but when I want to get it, the product already discontinued. I thought Innisfree launched it only for the spring special but I’m surprised to see that they decided to make it as a part of their permanent line!

I’m not quite sure if they shade selection is the same with the previous edition but both have 3 shades only and all of them are in the ‘safe’ type of shade such as orange, coral, and pink. They also have different design where the new one is more on the plain side but overall they have exactly the same packaging.

I’m not a huge cream blusher fan but with the packaging and the claim, I was intrigued and decided to try at least one shade. They said it is cream to powder blush so I thought it would be more oily skin friendly and based on what I saw on Instagram, the application is really easy and won’t take too much time.

Innisfree Skinny Microcara Zero 02 Brown Review:

I’ve heard many great things about Innisfree’s Skinny Microcara, particularly on how well it works for those with short, sparse lashes, so when I saw this new release which claims to be an upgraded version of that mascara, I was intrigued. Of course, I do also prefer this version’s sleek packaging compared to its predecessor, so why not, right? Let’s see how it fares.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Green Tea Lip Sleeping Mask

Innisfree Green Tea Lip Sleeping Mask Review

Innisfree Green Tea Lip Sleeping Mask Review:

Sheet mask, foot mask, hair mask, hand mask…in the world of k-beauty, there is literally a mask for every body part! But for this review, I’ll be writing about the lip sleeping mask, in particular, the Innisfree Lip Sleeping Mask with Green Tea (the other variant they have is Canola Oil Lip Sleeping Mask).

So what exactly is a lip sleeping mask? To me, it’s a thicker version of a lip balm that you apply before going to bed and wipe off the next morning which would leave you with super moisturized soft luscious lips. This product wasn’t a part of my routine up until a year ago when I first tried the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (probably considered as a Holy Grail product for most people). As someone with flaky dry lips who adores wearing lip tints daily, a lip sleeping mask has been a total game changer for me.

After I finished the sample size I have of the Laneige one, I contemplated if I’ll be willing to splurge on the full size. In the end, I decided to hunt for a cheaper alternative instead. After all, I’m someone who thrives on finding dupes for expensive products. Innisfree is a brand I’ve always trusted when it comes to skin care. I’m a fan of their Green Tea Seed line so when they launched a lip sleeping mask in the green tea variant, I decided to take my chances. I bought mine for 580php (~$11) which is still quite expensive for a lip product in my opinion.

This lip sleeping mask has been my go-to lip sleeping mask ever since I got it a few months ago and I must say, I’m pretty pleased with my purchase. Why? I’ll tell you in a bit, but before that, here are some details you might want to know about the product.

[REVIEW] iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil

iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil Review

iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil Review:

If you are into k-beauty, then you might be familiar with double cleansing. This two-step cleansing technique consists of using an oil-based cleanser to get rid of dirt, makeup, and sunscreen residue before using a water-based cleanser. For someone who only wears light makeup (or no makeup at all) daily, I didn’t think I needed to do both to fully clean my face. Boy was I wrong! Ever since I added an oil-based cleanser as the first step in my skincare routine, I noticed a huge improvement. Particularly, I saw a decrease in the number of blackheads and whiteheads on my nose.

Once I realized the importance of double cleansing, I made it a goal to find the perfect oil-based cleanser for me. Most k-beauty enthusiasts prefer to use cleansing balms such as the Banila Co. Clean It Zero or the Heimish All Clean Balm. I’ve tried samples of both and I found them effective but also inconvenient. To me, the idea of using a product which comes in a tub (with a lid that you’d have to twist open and a spatula to scoop out the product), is just too bothersome so I decided to get an oil cleanser in liquid form instead.

The brand iUNIK was fairly new to me when I got this product. I had read great reviews about the brand from a lot of Instagram influencers so I got intrigued. So when a Shopee store carrying iUNIK products went on a 50% off sale for Black Friday last year, I immediately got it. If I remember correctly, I scored this for only $12 which is a decent price for a cleansing oil.

I’ve been using this product for about three months now so I think my opinion about this is now pretty solid. You what that means right? It’s time for a review! But before that, here are some things you might want to know…
