[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla

Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla Review

Etude House Skin Glow Essence Cushion N03 Neutral Vanilla was purchased by Cosmeperks.

We all know that Korea makes some of the best cushions, whether it’s a sponge cushion, mesh cushion, or even a pact type of cushion. Even some luxury brand like YSL and Lancome make their cushion foundations in Korea. Until these days, cushion is still really popular because of its practicality and most of them have dewy finish which make our skin looks twice healthier and better in real life.

I’m not a huge fan of sponge cushion because somehow that type of cushion often break apart on my oily-combination skin faster than any other foundations but I do love mesh and pact cushion! They usually stay longer on me and they don’t emphasis my skin texture.

One day, Nigama offered me to try the newest cushion from Etude, the Skin Glow Essence Cushion and I’m pretty excited to see that it has a mesh type. It also contains essence and I really love base product with skincare in it (until now the Double Lasting Serum Foundation is still in list of my favorite foundations).

It’s a new product from Etude so you may have a bit difficulty in finding this product but no worry, there are some well-known online stores who ship internationally or you can get it directly from Etude House global official website.

[REVIEW] It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming Serum

It's Skin Tiger Cica Calming Serum Review

It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming Serum Review:

Rated quite highly on Hwahae (currently 4.43/5 stars) and not seeing it as readily available locally as the brand’s other lines at the time, I was excited to get my hands on the It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming Serum when I traveled to Seoul early last year. And despite some initial hesitation, the sales assistant managed to convince me enough to warrant a buy (also helps that this specific line was on sale!); but, did it live up to my expectations?

[REVIEW] HuangJiSoo Floral Relief Chamomile Toner

Huangjisoo Floral Relief Chamomile Toner Review

Huangjisoo Floral Relief Chamomile Toner Review:

This is a product that, honestly, attracted me because of the flowers and plants in it. Not only chamomile, but camellia and centella asiatica! The first time I used it I was disappointed because there was no scent (I hadn’t read the package) but that became a very small problem after I saw the results!

[REVIEW] ELIZAVECCA CF-Nest 97% B-Jo Serum

ELIZAVECCA CF-Nest 97% B-Jo Serum Review

ELIZAVECCA CF-Nest 97% B-Jo Serum Review:

Serum product from Elizavecca might be unfamiliar in most people’s ears, since their famous ones are Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack or Elizavecca Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask. I personally tried the collagen pack first, around a year ago, and I quite like the effect. So when I heard Elizavecca also has a serum product, which is Elizavecca CF-Nest 97% B-jo Serum, I’m keen to give this one a try.

[REVIEW] 3W CLINIC Aloe Full Water Activating Skin Toner

3W CLINIC Aloe Full Water Activating Skin Toner Review

3W CLINIC Aloe Full Water Activating Skin Toner Review:

It is not my first time to come across the brand 3W Clinic despite it being a brand with no flagship product that brings out the brand name to skincare junkies. 3W Clinic primarily makes inexpensive cosmetics distributed online or to small retailers—even cheaper than roadshop brands like Etude or A’Pieu. From my knowledge, they are under Samsung and they do not have any physical store in Korea.

I had a trip in Seoul last year where I went to a shop that retails skincare products in Ewha Woman’s University area area called “Baviphat”, where there was a 3W Clinic Aloe Full Water Activating skin care set for a very cheap price (which I can’t remember the exact price but it was definitely under $20) that made me snag the set without thinking twice.

[REVIEW] Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask

Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask Review

Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask Review:

I will come right out and say it: I’m not sure I buy this whole priming mask thing. But I am very intrigued by it being a quick mask that is done in up to five minutes, and that is an enough selling point for me! Of course I will be judging it also regarding the priming abilities and it better surprise me because if it has priming in the name I expect it to do as much of a good job as my priming sun cream. At least.

[REVIEW] PINK BY PURE BEAUTY So Smooth Pudding Cream

PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream Review

PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream Review:

Well, an unfamiliar product name and brand, isn’t it? I don’t know if you ever heard about this product, but I never knew ‘PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream’ was sold by my usual Korean products’ sellers. Despite its label of ‘Made in Korea’, I found it widely promoted in Watsons Malaysia.

It comes with a big family of PINK BY PURE BEAUTY; pink pore toner, pore perfection peeling pads, pink pore foam cleanser, pink skin so glow essence, and many more. They caught my attention due to their soft pink-and-black packaging and various range of products, so I decided to give ‘PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream’ a try after spreading the tester on the back of my hand.

[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!
