Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream Review

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream Review:

Have you ever used a product for the first time and thought, “Yup, this is the one.”? As a beauty enthusiast, I always want to try new things so I don’t typically stick to using the same products over and over again (even if they worked well for my skin). And it doesn’t help that there is seemingly an infinite number of newer and better products to try out there.

But once in a while, you fall in love with a product so much that the fear of missing out on newer products suddenly disappears. That’s what I happened when I first used this Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate.

Why? I’ll tell you the reasons in a bit but for now let’s learn more about the brand and some details about the product.
I’ve been seeing products from Illiyoon every now and again but they didn’t really catch my attention enough to buy them. Perhaps that can be attributed to their boring packaging (there are just so many adorable or chic looking products out there!).

Anyway, it was when I saw Kelly Driscoll’s youtube videos where she discussed how much she loves this cream that I decided to try it out for myself. Fortunately, I saw a smaller size on sale in shopee. I got mine for only $2 for a 70ml tube which is such a steal!

According to what I’ve read, Illiyoon is a part of Amore Pacific which is one of the biggest beauty companies in Korea (also owns Mamonde, Laneige, Innisfree, etc). The brand aims to deliver gentle but deeply nourishing products perfect for those which sensitive skin types. In fact, their products can also be used for babies. Since I have a one year old baby, this is a plus point for me.

Goodal Quince Infused Honey Mild Sheet Mask Review:

I was not familiar with Goodal brand before, neither had I ever heard of it. I was shopping to fill my sheet masks stocks when suddenly came across this Goodal Quince Infused Honey Mild Sheet Mask, and decided to try one after seeing the affordable price. And, what is a ‘quince’ actually?

Cosrx Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream Review

Cosrx Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream Review:

I needed a new product as a moisturizer, since the one I was using was too heavy and made my skin very oily towards the end of the day. Coincidentally, I came across Morgan Stewart’s video where she talked about this product. Since I always trust her recommendations, I decided to place this item into the cart (with bunch of other items).

The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask Review

The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask Review:

I’ll admit that I’ve been totally obsessed with wash off masks this year! And strangely, I’ve been wanting to try floral and rose related ones, because they just sound good? Earlier in the year, I was looking for a new wash off mask and I came across this one. There weren’t many reviews about it, but the fact that it said “daily” and also “moisturizing” made me want it. After all I want a wash off mask that can be used daily, and is also easy to wash off. Of course, it needs to be moisturizing as well!

You can say it was a purchase without any research or planning (I always seem to do this, oops!). I was simply looking for a basic wash off mask that I could use every day. One that wouldn’t cost a lot, or one that wouldn’t be too hard to wash off. Plus when I looked up the mask ingredients, it seemed to have so few ingredients which was another reason I decided to buy it. Read on to see if I regret my latest purchase, or if in the end I liked it.

[REVIEW] NEOGENCE N3 Tea Tree Purifying Mask Sheet

NEOGENCE N3 Tea Tree Purifying Mask Sheet Review

NEOGENCE N3 Tea Tree Purifying Mask Sheet Review:

Neogence proclaims itself as one of the top derma skincare brands from Taiwan, which was founded by experts in dermatology, biotechnology, and pharmaceutics. Despite my unfamiliarity with this Neogence brand, I was quite interested to try since it states clearly about these features: MI/MCI free, heavy metals free, fragrance free, dye free, paraben free, and no animal testing.

Moreover, I found many positive reviews about this brand as well as the popularity. Looks like Neogence itself is quite popular among Taiwanese, since Taiwan is where this brand comes from. Then I decided to buy two variants at once; NEOGENCE N3 Marigold Soothing Mask and NEOGENCE N3 Tea Tree Purifying Mask.

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Coconut Review:

I don’t think I need to introduce Innisfree, because I think they are a well-known brand that everyone has at least heard of, right? I actually haven’t used too many of their products, but when I’m visiting Seoul, I still like to look around their stores. Their packaging and products look incredibly beautiful, and I’m always tempted to buy and try many things. Anyway, at the end of the year I visited an Innisfree store, wanting to buy sheet masks!

I was especially looking for masks that are different from the varieties I could get from Etude House. Etude House sheet masks are my favorite, if I’m honest. But they don’t have all the varieties and flavors, so as soon as I saw these coconut masks at Innisfree, I had to buy it. After all, I’m a huge fan of coconut – the scent, as a food/drink, etc.

I’ll admit it was a purchase I made without knowing a thing about the ingredients, or anything like that. I did read it was good for dry skin, so I bought two of them to try. Coconut for me is also really nostalgic and makes me think of my childhood, so I really can’t help but fall for coconut related things! I was really hoping this would have a delicious coconut scent/smell, and that I would instantly love it… read on to see what I thought about it.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Ginger Honey Ampoule Skin

Innisfree Ginger Honey Ampoule Skin Review

Innisfree Ginger Honey Ampoule Skin Review:

Innisfree is one of those Korean brands that everyone trusts to have amazing products. Their philosophy is to create products using naturally derived ingredients from the island of Jeju. The brand is famous for their Green Tea and Orchid lines of products (both of which I have tried and love). So when they released their Ginger Honey line, I immediately wanted to get my hands on them.

The one that caught my eye the most is the Innisfree Ginger Honey Ampoule Skin. For those who are not yet familiar with Korean skincare terminologies, an ampoule is a more concentrated version of a serum while skin is another term used for toner.

Being categorized as an ampoule skin, this product serves dual purpose. Unlike a few years ago when the 10-step Korean skincare routine was all the rage, a more simplified routine comprising of multi-purpose products is preferred nowadays. As someone who is obsessed with skincare, I was intrigued to see if this product can help me reduce the number of steps in my routine.

[REVIEW] 2019 NEW Cosrx Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF50+ PA+++

Cosrx Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Cosrx Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF50+ PA+++ was purchased by Cosmeperks.

As mentioned in my previous review of Cosrx Green Comfort Sun Cream, this is the second part to my thoughts on Cosrx’s latest sunscreen duo! This time around, it’s a formula that’s claimed to be geared towards those with drier skin types, or those who prefer their sunscreens with a more moisturizing finish. Now, while I don’t have super dry skin, I do face dehydration issues, so let’s see how it fares with that.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Review

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Review:

Having a combination skin wasn’t really a worry for me when choosing for the best cream/ moisturizer, however, I have a combination PLUS sensitive skin so the latter part was pretty much the problem. I have heard tons of positive reviews (including celebrities) about the brand Kiehl’s, especially about this Ultra Facial Cream. When I had the chance to do some last minute shopping in Hawaii before heading back to our island, I didn’t hesitate to grab 2 of these and wondered if this would be a permanent for me.
