[REVIEW] Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review:

Purito is a Korean brand that’s been making waves recently, mostly online in the Instagram beauty community, at least from what I’ve seen. Touting itself as brand with “safe and honest ingredients that everyone – friends, family, and even babies – can have faith in”, I have to say that they’ve set some pretty high standards for themselves.

So while I can see that the ingredients used in their products seem promising, you can never know how a product would work for you unless you try it for yourselves. Which is why when I received this as a gift from a friend for my birthday, I was delighted and intrigued. But does this cleanser live up to Purito’s claim of being mild and sensitive-skin friendly?

[REVIEW] Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review:

Ceramides are something that always interest me, so I tend to be interested in products that mention or contain ceramides. I had never tried anything from Holika Holika either, but when I saw that they had this ceramide emulsion I became curious and had many questions. In the past I totally ignored emulsions because I never found one that worked well for me, that was until I tried the Dermatory Hypoallergenic Emollient. After having such a great experience with that emulsion, I was curious to see if another ceramide emulsion would work as well for me as the Dermatory one had.

Holika Holika had another version of this ceramide emulsion in the past, and then they reformulated it. But the previous version seemed to have great reviews and I noticed that this emulsion had three types of ceramides which made me instantly want to try it. I’ve been using this emulsion since May, and the other day I noticed that I had almost finished it, so it felt like the right time to do a review of it.

[REVIEW] COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review:

Having really oily skin and big pores, and also being in a humid climate like Singapore, has caused my skin to be peppered with blackheads and tiny clogged pores. To solve this problem, I have searched high and low for a suitable product that would provide oil control and not dry out my skin at the same time. I came across the COSRX blackhead power liquid, which is a chemical exfoliator.

[REVIEW] 2018 NEW Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel

Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel Review

Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Ever since I learned about oil cleansing and double cleansing I’ve faithfully been using oil cleansers at night, but there are times when I got totally sick of using them. In those times I tried some Western micellar waters, but somehow, I found them more drying than the oil cleansers and they didn’t remove my sunscreen that well. So, even though I was completely sick of using an oil cleanser I felt as though there wasn’t another option. I had heard of cleansing milks as well but the ones I heard about seemed unable to remove sunscreen so I never bothered to try them either, but I always was curious about cleansing milks.

So naturally when I heard Cosrx was coming out with a first cleanser – and a milk type one of course I was interested in it and eager to try it. Even more so when I read that it removes sunscreen as well as base make up, because that is pretty much what I look for in a first cleanser, something to remove sunscreen and light make up. That alone made me want to buy it but also the fact that it’s made by Cosrx was the other deciding factor for me. After all, Cosrx is well known and loved internationally for their clean ingredient lists, no frills packaging and for being effective skin care products which are also reasonably priced.

You might wonder what a cleansing milk is, after all they don’t seem to be as well known as oil cleansing or as easy to find. They are designed to be more moisturizing and less stripping than other cleansers and are good for dry skin. Milk cleansers usually have a mix emollients and oils so they can remove make up as well as sunscreen. Since it is winter right now, I wanted to try something that would be gentler and less drying for my skin, so I hoped that this cleansing milk would be the perfect solution.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser (New Packaging)

Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser Review

Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser Review:

Innisfree is slowly renewing all of its superfood lines. I thought at first they were literally renewing (like, updating the products) but let me tell you beforehand when it comes to the Blueberry line nothing changed except for the design! I have two products from this line so I decided to check the ingredients, and at first in this cleanser the new version’s website ingredients were different!

So after a long messy week I came to know the ingredients on the website were for a future (unreleased) big version of this product. And no, the big version isn’t different, but since it’s big it has “more” blueberry and glycerin and etc, because they are measured by physical amount and not percentage.

With that out of the way, when I first started using this cleanser (actually even when I bought it) I was expecting it to be like a less good version of the Krave Matcha Hemp Hydrating cleanser. I expected it to be “just a foam” that stripped the moisture a little, but with a low pH would be less harmful for the skin. Well, I must say it did surprise me and it’s way better than I thought!

[REVIEW] Scinic The Simple Calming Toner pH 5.5

Scinic The Simple Calming Toner Review

Scinic The Simple Calming Toner pH 5.5 was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This is a new product from a brand that honestly receives less love than it should. And after using it I can tell you this toner also receives an underwhelming amount of love, it definitely deserves more!

Scinic isn’t a brand that gets enough recognition, but I hope you will read this and maybe give the brand a shot. It truly is a simple toner and I am more surprised with this toner than I have been with others.

MizuMi Extra Mild Facial Cleanser Review

MizuMi Extra Mild Facial Cleanser Review:

While on a trip to Bangkok, I remember just walking through aisles of cosmetics at the drugstore and finding brands I’ve never heard of before, which, as you might’ve guessed, included this brand. Being a natural sceptic, I took note of it but didn’t buy it immediately.

However, when I couldn’t find much reviews online in English (Google Translate can only help so much), I ended up going for it anyway (whatever I could read seemed promising) and purchasing a bottle right before I flew back home the next day. But how did it fare?

[REVIEW] Huxley Secret of Sahara Toner; Extract It

Huxley Secret of Sahara Toner; Extract It Review

Huxley Secret of Sahara Toner; Extract It Review:

I have to admit this… I am all about aesthetics. If there is a product with excellent reviews but comes in an unattractive packaging, I would give it an immediate pass. I need my skincare family to work for my skin as well as look pretty on my skincare shelf.

So having said this, I got myself sucked into the Huxley hype because lets face it, their packaging is everything. The design is minimal yet luxe, so I convinced myself that I needed another hydrating toner (I didn’t need another toner obviously, but that is besides the point). I was actually pretty wary about the strong Huxley signature scent that everyone kept talking about; it is either they love it or they feel it is overpowering. Now, I would normally avoid strong scented products, but I succumbed to the beautiful packaging and just went for it!

Bonajour Eggplant Daily BHA Toner Review

Bonajour Eggplant Daily BHA Toner Review:

I wanted to try this product as soon as I heard about it for two reasons. One is that Bonajour is a surprisingly good brand that keeps amazing me, and they do use lots of natural ingredients. The other one is… it’s an Eggplant toner, come on. And it’s purple! Wouldn’t you want to try that?
