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] Innisfree Seaweed Soothing Mask Sheet Moist Soothing Sargassaceae

Innisfree Seaweed Soothing Mask Sheet Moist Soothing Sargassaceae Review

Innisfree Seaweed Soothing Mask Sheet Moist Soothing Sargassaceae Review:

Lately I have been using a lot of masks made out of seaweed, since it’s a fashion currently in Korea. I must say beforehand this mask has nothing to do with the Mamonde Seaweed Dustcut mask! I mean, maybe a little, after all it’s seaweed, but there are other masks this is more similar to. Seaweed should be good for the summer, and Jeju is the place in Korea with the most (and the best) natural resources – so Innisfree being a Jeju brand it’s no use they used Jeju seaweed. Although you may be surprised with the other ingredients in the mask, and their origins.

[REVIEW] Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review

Scinic Ceramide 100 All in One Ampoule Review:

Scinic is well known for their Honey all in one ampoule, and it’s an ampoule that many people enjoy using, so naturally when Scinic came out with three new ampoules I was curious to see how they would compare to the old ones. They actually came out in 2017 so they aren’t that new (oops) but it seems that not many people have tried them or written about them. The new (ceramide, centella and vitamin c) ampoules are larger (300ml) than the honey, aqua and snail ones, and also come with a pump which makes them more convenient to use.

I couldn’t resist buying (and trying) this ceramide ampoule when I found out it also contained shea butter. I’ve always been looking for products that contain both of these things because I think it sounds like a good combination. The fact that there were no reviews made me a bit nervous but in the end I just decided to try it out, even if it was a bit of a risky purchase. Read on to see if my risky purchase was a good or bad idea.

[REVIEW] Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask

Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask Review

Polatam Pure Cream Firming Radiance Mask Review:

Polatam is a brand I’ve frequently seen around and heard about, but due to the price tag, have always been wondering about from afar. Claimed to be created by Park Tam Hee, an acclaimed Korean actress with a keen knowledge of beauty and skincare, the Polatam skincare range definitely caught my eye more due to its chic packaging more than anything.

Overall very clean and classy, with interesting notable ingredients thrown about, I was definitely excited when I was gifted a couple of masks from this range to try out. But the question remains: does the quality/experience reflect its price tag?

[REVIEW] Secret Key Thanakha Mild Sun Cream SPF47 PA+++

Secret Key Thanakha Mild Sun Cream SPF47 PA+++ Review

Secret Key Thanakha Mild Sun Cream SPF47 PA+++ Review:

The sun is something that is both amazing and scary – in the way that it brightens and lightens our days and yet too much sun exposure can give us skin cancer. I guess it isn’t something that bothers or worries everyone, but as someone who lives in a place with extremely high skin cancer rates it does bother me. Because of this I’m always researching for new or different sunscreens because I never know when one will be discontinued, or whether I’ll find one that I like using more. I usually have a bunch of sunscreens on my radar that I plan to try at some stage or another and I found this sunscreen the last time I was looking for one.

I often choose sunscreens after looking at the sunscreen filters, I don’t generally care too much about the other ingredients which may or not be a bad thing. But what I look for is a sunscreen that protects against both types of UVA rays (and UVB rays too). Some sunscreens only partially protect against all of the range of UVA rays, which automatically rules them out for me. It’s another reason I like mineral sunscreens because the mineral filters protect against all the types of UV rays (UVA1, UVA2 and UVB) so it’s easy (for a lazy person like me) to check if it protects well against UVA rays. Phew I wrote a lot of boring stuff, right? Unsurprisingly I mostly chose this sunscreen because it was a mineral sunscreen and I had good experience with the last Secret Key sunscreen. Not the most exciting reason, but somehow this sunscreen appealed more than any of the others I had been researching, so read on if you’re curious to see how well it performed.

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+PA+++ Review

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+/PA+++ Review:

To be honest, I’ve always been quite intrigued with Yadah’s skincare line. It’s not the most raved about brand, I think, but it does pride itself on being “natural” and sensitive skin-friendly, so that certainly got my attention. However, since I try not to spend impulsively in general (although I do have strong urges… don’t we all?) I couldn’t really find a reason to purchase anything from the brand because I had other products to use up first. So when I received this in a gift exchange among friends last year, I was very excited.

[REVIEW] New Innisfree Pocket Shake Modeling Mask Vitalizing + Cooling Rose

Innisfree Pocket Shake Modeling Mask Vitalizing + Cooling Rose Review

Innisfree Pocket Shake Modeling Mask Vitalizing + Cooling Rose was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I was soooo excited when they first released this a few days ago! I don’t have a big experience with modeling masks because they tend to be pricey, but I do enjoy applying them. So far, I enjoy applying them even when the results are disappointing, so whereas they are expensive it’s this small pleasure I always enjoy. Besides, I love Innisfree!

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Lip Balm Review

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Lip Balm Review:

I am a lip balm addict. Not because I love the look or anything, but because my lips are really dry and really sensitive – so I must always have something between my lips and the horrible pollution here in Seoul. Before I came here I just used lip balm to keep my lips moisturized, so anything would do really, but after coming here the pollution and the extremely dry winter weather really took a toll on my lips and allergies. Regardless, this cream has ceramide aaaaaand ato in the name! Of course my expectations are over 9000! But is it as good as it promises?

[REVIEW] New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum | Essence in Lotion | Skin | Cream | Cleanser | Sleeping Mask

New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum + Essence in Lotion + Skin + Cream + Cleanser + Sleeping Mask Review

New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum Special Set was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I met this amazing serum for the first time in 2013. I really LOVE how it worked on my skin since the first time I tried it. I think I already spent 1, 2, 3… ah, I lost my count how many bottles I’ve bought. Right, it’s Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum (the first Korean green tea skincare I’ve tried)!

This green tea serum is the world’s best seller product from Innisfree, even it’s awarded globally as best moist serum for 19 times! (well, I do know why it is). The good news, Innisfree just upgraded the formula of this lovely serum! As far as I know, they already upgraded it 3 times. In 2014, 2016 and now, the newest upgraded version in 2018!

Actually, Innisfree not only upgraded their Green Tea Seed line but also added a new product, Innisfree Green Tea Seed Essence-in-Lotion. And I extremely wanted to try everything in this line. Thankfully, they had a special set to introduce their newest formula for us. Here is New Green Tea Seed Serum Special Set which comes in a thick green box, consists of 6 products (the full size of Green Tea Seed Serum and the minis of Green Tea Seed Skin, Essence-in-Lotion, Cream, Morning Cleanser, and Sleeping Mask). Okay, get your coffee or snacks and please sit tight, it’s gonna be a long post, but I guess you are as excited as I am to try this NEW Green Tea Seed line, aren’t you?
