[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?

[REVIEW] Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser

Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser Review

Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I will be completely honest and admit I hadn’t heard about Krave nor the blogger Liah Yoo until (almost at the same time) two different people told me about it. I was even attracted to the product before I went and investigated the blogger! When I did finally watch her video on the product I didn’t flinch on my wish to try it. Why?

It’s not only the claims of the product (which I’m sure most of you have heard of by now) but mainly because the introductory video starts with “Are you familiar with the words squeaky clean? Well, that’s one thing your skin doesn’t deserve” – and I thank you so much. I know lots of people who have been into skin care know that, but a lot of starters or people who don’t care that much think that squeaky clean is equal to true cleanness. And also her honesty when she said that it doesn’t really smell good… because they didn’t want to add stuff for that. In the end, scent isn’t important if the product is good and the scent isn’t bad, right?

[REVIEW] Dewytree 7 Cut Clean Healthy Cleansing Foam

Dewytree 7 Cut Clean Healthy Cleansing Foam Review

Dewytree 7 Cut Clean Healthy Cleansing Foam Review:

I have recently fallen into like with more natural and flowery brands, so then I thought I should take a break and go back to my dermatological brands for a while. Because in my case the dermatological and natural skin care work the best when used hand in hand.

And since I’m using a lot of herbal stuff lately, I thought my cleanser (since it’s one of my favorite skin care steps) should go back to dermatological. I had used The Clean Lab AC DEW FOAM Cleanser from this brand and loved it, and since I already had it at home I thought it was about time for a skin-premiere. Especially since Dewytree 7 cut is becoming gradually more popular!
