LG On The Body x Kakao Friends Neo Collagen Sheet Mask Review

LG On: The Body x Kakao Friends Neo Collagen Sheet Mask Review:

I actually got this mask as part of a monthly challenge on Instagram. Since I don’t have a big diversity when it comes to masks (because I always stick to the few I already know and like) I end up buying a few masks when I join a challenge. So anyway, I had to get a cat mask because of reasons and first I went to Holika Holika but they only sell offline at packs of 10 and I wasn’t going to do that for a mask I don’t know (I’m very committed to the ones I like), so I looked for another one. I ended up only finding this one! So I got it.

I wasn’t disappointed at my choice since I love Neo and it is pomegranate, which usually has a nice scent! So I took it and used it. I’m writing this review because I was really surprised at the result. You can see I didn’t even take the main photo before using the mask, I wasn’t going to write a review – it was that unexpected.

[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] New 2017 Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Sleeping Pack

Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Sleeping Mask Review

Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Sleeping Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

At the exact time when the weather started becoming colder and drier, and my skin started aging, I got lucky enough that Skinfood released this new product for their honey propolis collection! My skin particularly likes honey based products, and winter in Korea is terribly dry. It was just a bunch of happy coincidences when it came to the release of this product. So whereas Skinfood products are usually a hit or miss with my skin, I have now been using it for 1 month without rest and hope my review answers any question you might have!

[REVIEW] TIAM My Signature C Source

Tiam My Signature C Source Review

Tiam My Signature C Source Review:

I have, for nearly 2 years now, been incorporating a vitamin C serum in both my daily and nightly skincare routine. However, the serum(s) that I used only contained a 5% maximum concentration of vitamin C and it was quite expensive for a small amount. I did more research in the blogosphere and finally decided to give this much talked about serum a shot. This baby here contains a 20% concentration of vitamin C and was much cheaper! You don’t have to tell me twice. On the day it arrived, I started using it and have been very happy with the results.

This product used to be known as the O.S.T. C20 serum and Tiam (the company that produces the serum) is part of the Cosrx family. Now, I have a lot of faith in the entire Cosrx products line and so unsurprisingly, this blind faith extended to Tiam as well. I was not disappointed. This faint citrus scented serum has become my favourite part of my skincare routine, not only because I love the smell of oranges but mainly because it has actually helped lighten some of the scarring I had from blemishes around my chin area (the result of being a woman and suffering through hormonal blemishes during that time of the month).

[REVIEW] Innisfree Soybean Energy Neck Cream

Innisfree Soybean Energy Neck Cream Review

Innisfree Soybean Energy Neck Cream Review:

We constantly strive to care for our face because this is what people notice at first sight. But we overlook its nearest neighbor, the neck. Other than the crow feet and wrinkles on the face, another tell-tale sign of one’s age is neck. The skin on the neck will also lose its elasticity over time and that is when vertical ridges (more pronounced when you speak) or horizontal neck lines make their appearances. And in today’s world of smart gadgets, where we often lower our heads gazing at our phones and tablets, wrinkled necks seem inescapable.

Skin on the face and neck differ, in that the latter has less hair follicles and oil glands. It is also less likely to be sensitive as compared to the face. Most of the time, people do not splurge on neck creams separately. They either overlook the application of skincare products on their neck, or they use the same face cream on it. I am one of these “most people”. I do not really give neck care much thoughts despite being aware that it does need attention too. So when I chanced upon the Innisfree Soybean Energy Neck Cream, which I feel is at a very affordable price for such a big jar, I decided to make a purchase to ease the guilt.

[REVIEW] New 2017 Laneige Two Tone Sheet Mask | Moisturizing and Lifting

Laneige Two Tone Sheet Mask Moisturizing and Lifting Review

Laneige Two Tone Sheet Mask Moisturizing and Lifting was purchased by Cosmeperks

Laneige masks are considered to be “affordable high end” masks here in Korea, it’s what most people turn to when they look for something above average but not above average price. This new collection of masks seems very promising as they target two different problems at once! Well, better yet it would have been to let you choose a top and a bottom, separately, for your own taste, but I guess they didn’t think that far.

Regardless, I really like moisturizing masks, and good lifting masks are also great for tightening the skin, so I chose the mask that seemed to please me most when it came to its functions (even though honestly it’s the ugliest from the collection).

[REVIEW] Aritaum Baby Face Ampoule Collagen

Aritaum Baby Face Ampoule Collagen Review

Aritaum Baby Face Ampoule Collagen Review:

The best thing about promotions is when you buy something not really knowing what to expect and it turns out to be a surprise. I think most people who do this end up having bad surprises, but the good ones make it worth it. This one was definitely a good surprise!

Yes, sure it only lasts for 6 days but 1) that’s perfect for vacation 2) usually ampoules are meant to be used one (however much the amount of the package is) all at once as a one round of treatment and that’s how I used this one! One in the morning, one at night, without any mistake! I think that, for such a short treatment the results were quite good!

[REVIEW] Banobagi Vita Genic Lifting Jelly Mask

Banobagi Vita Genic Lifting Jelly Mask Review

Banobagi Vita Genic Lifting Jelly Mask Review:

Facial sheet masks have been gaining so much popularity and there are so many to choose from with very wide ranging prices. Sheet masks are yet to be a regular in my skincare routine. I use it to pamper myself occasionally or when a perk-me-up is needed. I would rather spend the similar amount on a bottle of, say, moisturiser than a box of 10 masks. Some converts however do swear by the wonders that regular use of sheet masks have done for their skin.

I have never hear of Banobagi before, and soon discovered it is the name of a well-reviewed South Korean aesthetic clinic in Gangnam. So the sucker in me was thrilled to find another cosmeceutical brand to try out! The highlight of this mask is liposome, which allows effective absorption of the ingredients by the skin. It comes in 4 types – Hydrating, Lifting, Whitening and Brightening. I will be reviewing the lifting mask today.

Re:NK Cell to Cell Essence Review

Re:NK Cell to Cell Essence Review:

I once applied for a free treatment at the Re:NK “beauty center” and fell in love with it. From there I walked out with the most expensive beauty product I had ever owned, but on the bright side that made sure I used it to the very last drop. The product is “just an essence” but for the price and after the treatment I received it better be a damn good essence. I used it at first only as a night essence, but when I visited the beauty center they told me to use it in every skin care. And so I did, and this is my 1 million cell review.
