Snail mucus and bee venom are known for their anti-bacterial and healing properties. Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask works wonderfully well for acne prone and troubled skin. The two main ingredients may sound exotic and bit scary but this sheet mask is gentle and does not sting in any way!
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.

Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence Review:
I remember it well when I first encountered essence –it was in the summer of 2013 that I went to South Korea to spend my Holy Week vacation. My best friend and I were shopping for BB Creams (Yes, it was the talk of the town around that time!) and you know how Koreans are so generous, they take their GWP’s very seriously. I ended up coming home with a bunch of essence samples! Initially, I thought essence is pretty much like moisturizer.
I had to do some research to understand the art of Korean skincare and it sure did take some time for me to embrace THE CONCEPT. Admittedly, I’ve been using one on and off since then. It is only recently that I am being obsessed to achieve that chok chok skin. I want my essence to have a brightening effect not simply moisturizing. I was in search for one but I don’t really want to spend that much for a product, hey I can be frugal sometimes. COSRX is a brand that I can get my hands on easily and definitely won’t burn my pocket so I tried their Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence.
Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner Review:
I’ve been hooked up with Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner since the first time I saw Wishtrend’s youtube video. The introduction to this product looked so promising and I was in need of new toner at that time. The toner is targeted for those who want to add moisture to the skin that might be stripped away during the cleansing process.
I chose hydrating toner over exfoliating toner because at this moment, I want to treat my dehydrated skin condition and I think to use exfoliating toner every day may be too harsh for my skin. So, I need to suck in all the moisture as much as I can. Read more to find how this toner fared me.
Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Night Gelly EX Review:
Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Night Gelly EX provides overnight skin hydrating that keeps skin moist and tender all day. This night gelly can also kick the dryness and aging out. This is also formulated with a unique cocktail of essential oils of Bulgarian Rose, Palmrosa, Rose Wood and Green Citrus that can hydrate effectively, preventing moisture loss and repair damaged skin.
So my skin is extremely acne prone and I hate the irritation that pimples leave. I always tend to pop them, which is painful and bad for the skin, but it also doesn’t get the job done. The pimples seem to reinflate themselves with nastiness and the process just repeats.
After stumbling across a pimple patch review by Tina Yong on YouTube and getting the recommendation to try Cosrx from a friends (plus the affordability of these patches) I thought, why not give this a try, it can’t hurt anything. So I picked up a pack of 4 sheets off Jolse.
COSRX Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser Review:
I have been on the lookout for a good cleanser to add to my skincare routine. I decided to test out this chemically exfoliating salicylic acid cleanser for troubled skin. COSRX is very famous for their acne fighting products, and this particular cleanser has great reviews and ratings on all retail websites that I could find.
I’m a little skeptical when buying new acne fighting products because 9 out of 10 of them does not work at all, and the cheapest drugstore counterpart usually outdoes them. Though after all the praising reviews I have read, I have high hopes for this product!
