[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] Gaondodam Pure All In One Moisturizer

Gaondodam Pure All In One Moisturizer Review

Gaondodam Pure All In One Moisturizer Review:

I got this product last year and it has a surprising amount of product (for a facial cream) and so it took me forever to finish. However, I am writing this review after finishing the whole pot, so you know right away that I liked it “at least enough”. But this brand isn’t that well known nor that appreciated, so even if it’s for general knowledge I think it deserves a review!

[REVIEW] Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid Serum 97%

Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid Serum 97% Review

Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid Serum 97% Review:

There are a good number of Korean skincare and cosmetics products that adopt cutesy designs to attract female consumers. There is a part of me that goes “wooh” and “wah” over these too. But there is just one brand that I think was meant to achieve this, but somehow I did not take to it – Elizavecca.    

Reading up on the brand story of Elizavecca, it was said to be established by a “Korean student who studied traditional Chinese medicine” in Year 2011. The brand prides itself on offering its products at affordable prices to allow more people to enjoy beautiful skin. It uses picture of a pig and many of its products has the word “piggy” on their name. I do not find the pig cute and in fact felt that the whole feel of its range of products feel unprofessional and unconvincing.

But as I was searching for hyaluronic product to alleviate my dehydrated skin, this Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid 97% which garnered many raved reviews kept coming up on the search results.  So I decided I should cast aside my biasness and give it a try.

[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.

[REVIEW] New 2018 Innisfree Ato Soothing Gel | For Very Dry & Sensitive Skin

Innisfree Ato Soothing Gel Review

Innisfree Ato Soothing Gel was purchased my Cosmeperks.

I was so excited when they released this new collection! I was intrigued by the collection’s Soothing Cream and this soothing gel (I use Nature Republic’s Aloe Soothing Gel and Cactus Soothing Gel religiously – and they happened to finish coincidentally when this came out so yay opportunity!), and when Nigama suggested I try one I jumped right into this one.

I have been using it religiously on my night routine, to soothe from the aggressions of the day, and sometimes in the morning. How is it different than a normal Aloe soothing gel? You may want to check this if you use soothing gel on your face.

[REVIEW] Heart Made Bless of Gaia Flax & Herb Nourishing Skincare Oil

Heart Made Bless of Gaia Flax & Herb Nourishing Skincare Oil Review

Heart Made Bless of Gaia Flax & Herb Nourishing Skincare Oil Review:

Recently I’ve been quite interested in facial oils and so I’ve been on the hunt to find some different oils that would help my dry skin out. When I finished the oil that I was using at night, I was looking for a replacement when I stumbled across a local website selling this Heart Made facial oil. It was made by a company I’d never heard of before so I was curious about it. Because it was a brand I had never heard of before I did try to find some reviews (and failed) and also looked into the company to decide whether to buy it or not.

According to Heart Made’s website, their products are vegan and they focus on using natural ingredients with plant extracts and oils. Their products also seem to have very few ingredients in them. When I read the description on their website about the oil it sounded as though it was good for rosacea (which I have mildly), and minimising skin irritation too. In the end I decided to just try it out, after all what was the worst that could happen?

[REVIEW] It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector with Licorice

Its Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector Review

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector Review:

Once I heard about these essences I was curious about them, especially since there are so many varieties and different types. I spent a lot of time researching different ones deciding which one to try. Of course, in the end I decided to pick the LI effector – which contains liquorice. Why liquorice? Well because it’s meant to be good at reducing redness which sounds perfect to me. After all I’m sick of looking like Rudolph the red nosed reindeer or like a tomato all year round.

The LI effector also had the best reviews, it seemed like it helped a lot of people’s redness. So, I was hopeful that maybe it would work for me. Despite the triethanolamine, I thought it also has a pretty good ingredient list with a good percentage of liquorice too.

[REVIEW] Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil

Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil Review

Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil Review:

Curious about other cleansing oils, when a friend brought this up last year, I was surprised, considering Simple isn’t an Asian brand. But looking at the relatively clean and minimal ingredients list, it left me very intrigued. So when I caught it on sale at a local pharmacy/drugstore, I gave in almost immediately. Read on to see how a British cleansing oil fares in terms of makeup removal!

[REVIEW] Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum

Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum Review

Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum Review:

Sometimes I wonder if it is me or if is human nature to be self-contradictory.  On one hand we look for value for money, but on the other hand when products seem too inexpensive compared to similar in the range, there are doubts over its efficacy and authenticity.

I chanced upon the brand Iunik and liked its packaging simplicity as well as the reasonable price point.  But really, what brand is this? And for the product claims, the pricing seemed too good to be true. After googling on it, alas with limited information found, I decided to take the plunge anyway.

So this is what I found for sharing – Iunik is from South Korea and a newbie to the (I would say) very saturated skincare industry, having entered only in November 2016.  Its name actually stands for Ideal, Unique, Natural, Ingredients, Know-how.  Although the brand is new, the company apparently has more than 10 years of experience in skin care and cosmetics products, mainly exporting out of South Korea.

It offers quite a number of products and I decided on the Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum because my dehydrated skin really needs help.
