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

It’s 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.

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.

[REVIEW] Neulii Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum

Neulii Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum Review

Neulii Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum Review:

Neulii is a Korean skin care brand launched by the online shop RoseRoseShop, and when they first launched the brand they were kind enough to send out free samples to people. However, that wasn’t the reason I became interested in this serum, but rather the fact that it had so few ingredients and the fact that RoseRoseShop were so transparent about the percentages of actives and ingredients in their products. I liked the fact that they produced a simple serum with few ingredients and their openness about the products details.

When I saw they had a snail bee serum I was curious to try one and see if it would work for me, since so many people seem to have great success with snail products. It also contains propolis which is an ingredient that I also like in skin care, I’ve long been a fan of Cosrx Honey overnight sleeping mask which also has propolis in it. The simple clean design of the product appealed to me, and the low price so of course I couldn’t resist buying it.

[REVIEW] La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare Review

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare Review:

La Roche-Posay is a famous drugstore brand from France. Their products are claimed by dermatologists and are tested on sensitive skins. And that’s the reason why I gave this one a try.

There was one time that I got a horrible breakout because of cosmetic allergy (poor me) and I decided to go to a dermatologist. She gave me an antibiotic liquid and warned that it would dry my skin. And you know, my skin was really really sensitive at that time, so she recommended me to use the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare to gently moisturize my skin. The name of this products may seem really weird to be honest however it does describe itself pretty exactly. We will get to that!

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 100 Ampoule Review

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 100 Ampoule Review:

The weather where I live has been shifting dramatically from morning to evening. It can get quite cold and dry in early morning, then in the afternoon, the temperature goes up to over 30 degree Celsius, which is not good for your skin. Moreover, I have just been through a major acne period due to my stress from work. Therefore, I am in good need of some products that can help soothe my skin and improve pigmentation. I searched for ingredients that aid in healing your skin and found Centella Asiatica. Originated and developed by Skin1004 in Korea.

Skin1004 claims to use mainly (and sometimes “only”) raw materials that the skin crave for. Each and every ingredient presented in the products offered by Skin1004 has been selected for being the most gentle and safe for skin. All of the ingredients that merely for texture or scent are left out. At first the brand was well-known for its Zombie Pack, a wash-off mask. Recently, there is a trend of Centella Asiatica ampoule in my country. Everybody is talking about its impressive ingredient list and “magic” efficacy. Being a new skincare junkie, I knew that I could not stay out of this craze. After some research on the website, I decided to buy a bottle and ready for experience.

[REVIEW] Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Oily Acne-prone Skin

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Oily Acne-prone Skin Review

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Oily Acne-prone Skin Review:

When something is causing a hype, we readily jump into the bandwagon and that’s how it’s been for who knows how long. Basically, we take the words of other people on something. If the majority claims that a product is HG-worthy, then it must be. If everybody’s yapping about something, you instantly wanna try it too! Sadly for skincare, it’s never predictable. What may be astounding to others may not make sense to you. Sometimes you want to agree with the crowd but you just can’t because you don’t get the hype at all.

If there’s one thing though, that I entirely embrace and truly thank for, aside from wearing sunscreen, is the advice of double cleansing. I am never without double cleansing since I realize how good it is for the skin! Needless to say, I always have something for double cleansing and recently, I got Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water because I’ve been seeing it on other people’s feed.

Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner Review

Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner Review:

One of the skincare steps that I feel has made a lot of difference for my dry skin is definitely the hydrating toner step. And I love using Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner for that purpose.

But of course being a skincare junkie, I couldn’t help but felt intrigued to try out Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner after looking at the short and clean ingredients list (only 8 ingredients!), reading positive reviews all over Instagram, and even the skincare guru Gothamista raved highly about it. And with that gorgeous packaging that is such an eye candy just made me weak in the knee, I simply could not resist getting the toner!
