Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Review:

I’ve been flirting with this essence since January 2014 when it was first released, however for this product to reach the shelves of EU it took a while, as essences are usually promoted and developed mostly for the Asian markets. I finally managed to get a bottle on March 2018 from Notino for 60.90 euro and I’ve been using it twice a day since.

[REVIEW] Mizon Skin Power Original First Essence

Mizon Skin Power Original First Essence Review

Mizon Skin Power Original First Essence Review:

First treatment essences (FTE/s) sounded like miracle workers, at least from other people’s reviews. So, I really wanted to try one, and because there were so many I decided to try one from Mizon. Why Mizon? Because it had a high percentage of the galactomyces ferment filtrate and the price seemed reasonable too. I hadn’t tried many FTEs before this one, so I didn’t really know how to judge it from the ingredient list. The fact that it didn’t contain triethanolamine was also another reason I decided to choose this FTE over some others.

Since I hadn’t yet had the chance to try many products from Mizon, this seemed to be a good time to try out some Mizon products, so I could get an idea of whether I liked their products or not. Also Mizon seemed to be a brand that a lot of people liked, and so seemed like a trustworthy brand to try out.

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence Review:

I was searching for a first treatment essence to add in my routine and I stumbled upon this. I compared this to both SKII Treatment Essence and Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence and both are much more expensive for a newbie. So, I picked Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence thinking that if this is good for my routine, I can always upgrade.

[REVIEW] Goodal Waterest Lasting Water Oil

Goodal Waterest Lasting Water Oil Review

Goodal Waterest Lasting Water Oil Review:

Because my skin is so horribly dehydrated I spent quite a lot of time online reading reviews and searching for some kind of magical product to fix my dehydrated skin. Over the course of a year, I realized no one product was going to do that, but that didn’t stop me from reading about products that sounded like they would at least help. That was how I first heard of this Goodal water oil, with its unusual name.

Despite the confusing name, it seemed as if this product worked miracles for other people’s dehydrated skin which made me very curious to see whether it’s magic would work on me as well. I later found out that it had been reformulated a few times, and so I was unsure if it was as good as the original water oil, but that was half the fun – testing it out for myself to see whether this was going to be a miracle product for me or not.

[REVIEW] Skin Watchers Galactomyces Whitening Essence

Skin Watchers Galactomyces Whitening Essence Review

Skin Watchers Galactomyces Whitening Essence Review:

Skin Watchers is a brand I remember seeing many people talking about however, after I started learning more about it, I feel like not many people know about it. I’ve wanted to try a product with galactomyces for so long so I just impulsively bought this because it said galactomyces and it was a good deal.

Oh little did I know.. This product actually has a pH of 4-5 (which sounds amazing to me since I have acne aka my skin’s pH is somewhere around 7.5 to 8 so it needs to get lower. Also, it contains A LOT of amazing ingredients and my beloved aronia which I have no idea what it can actually do BUT it tastes great in tea (I’m kidding it’s in the berries with the highest amount of antioxidants aka what makes the skin clear, but it does taste GREAT).

[REVIEW] SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream

SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream Review

SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream Review:

As I have entered my thirties, I find that light moisturizers are no longer enough for me during the night. I live in a humid climate so I tend to shy away from heavier moisturizers. Some of the ones I tried felt too thick and suffocating, does not absorb properly into my skin making it feeling sticky, and some even clogged my pores.

So when I got the SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream as a part of the SK-II Pitera™ Welcome Set, I was a bit hesitant to try it. Especially when it is an anti-aging cream, it obviously will be quite heavy. But the cream has received so many glowing reviews, of course I was curious to try it for myself and see how it fares.

[REVIEW] Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream

Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream Review

Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream Review:

A lot of people see an eye cream as something that is unnecessary, and I used to think that way in the past as well. However, when I started to use a face cream that I couldn’t use around my eyes I realized that an eye cream was essential. Also the skin around the eyes is very delicate and thin, and so I started to think that applying a normal face cream might be too heavy or irritating to the eyes. Which is why I started to look into different eye creams and I found this Purebess eye cream.

I had never heard of the Purebess brand before and since it had some good reviews I decided that I needed to try a new brand and a new product. The fact that it contains galactomyces which is a ferment, also attracted me to this eye cream. Galactomyces is meant to be good for wrinkles and fine lines which makes it sound excellent for an eye cream!

Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence EX Review

Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence EX Review:

I have always been in love with Innisfree. My first foray into the world of Korean skincare products started with Innisfree mainly because I was intrigued with the ingredients they incorporated into their skincare: orchid, green tea, volcanic clusters, seawater, soybean, rice, broccoli, olives…you get the idea. Prior to this, I was a Dermalogica super fan and so a skincare range using natural and everyday “in-my-larder” ingredients was very alien to me.

As Innisfree is definitely cheaper than Dermalogica, I decided to give my wallet a break and opted for this (at that time) very strange concept of “essence” which apparently I was supposed to incorporate into a recommended gazillion step skincare routine.
