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!

[REVIEW] Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence EX

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.

[REVIEW] Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence

Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence Review

Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Knowing that green tea plays quite well with my skin, I was keen in incorporating the Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence into my routine. While not necessarily a hyped up ingredient, green tea is pretty reliable for its rich source of antioxidants. However, this essence does not only pride itself on just green tea – it also claims to be chock full of enticing ferments! Which, in theory, should be a good thing, right?

[REVIEW] Benton Fermentation Eye Cream

Benton Fermentation Eye Cream Review

Benton Fermentation Eye Cream Review:

I first tried this product in samples. Benton is always very generous with the samples, so after receiving my new member sample kit, the 2 products they sent me to review, and the 2 other packages I received by purchasing them myself I had somewhere between 20 and 24 samples of this cream. I don’t know how much product is in each sample, but each sample is enough for me to use 4 times! So I tried it a lot, and then I purchased it.

I wasn’t going to purchase it, honestly, because I can just keep receiving the samples, but my previous eye cream finished and after the incident I had where my eyelashes fell out I didn’t want to risk something new. And let’s face it, Benton is natural, generally good, and is very affordable! So I bought two packs of this, and these are my thoughts after almost finishing the first one!

Chica Y Chico Skin Texture Toner Review:

Interestingly, I would never have come across this toner if it weren’t for my friend who graciously decided to pass this on as she was looking to de-stash her products. And for that, I thank her because spoiler alert: I ended up really liking this toner. Also just a quick note that you can really see how the YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary: whatever works for me may not work for you, and vice versa) rule really comes into play here as we had different opinions on the same product.

[REVIEW] SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Review

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Review:

When talking about first treatment essence, the brand SK-II would definitely come to mind as it was one of the earlier skincare brands to carry FTE under its wings. SK-II is a luxury brand and there are a lot of glowing (pun intended) reviews about its Facial Treatment Essence (some even call it ‘Miracle Water’ or ‘Miracle Potion’), that claims to have more than 90% Pitera™. If you don’t already know, Pitera™ is SK-II’s signature natural bio-ingredient that is packed with vitamins, amino acids and minerals that will aid in transforming your skin to crystal clear, as well as boosting skin’s texture, radiance and firmness.

I first got this FTE from the SK-II Pitera™ Welcome Set, which also includes a mini size of SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream. It is a great value for money trial set for those who wants to get a taste of the SK-II world, but not quite yet ready to splurge on their full-sized products.

First treatment essences are an essential in every multi step Korean inspired skincare routine. Today the market is flooded with first treatment essence from different brands all promise to have more than ninety percent galactomyces ferment filtrate extract.
