During puberty, I was lucky enough to have an acne-free face. I do, however, suffer from having a very dull skin. My face may be blemish free yet I feel that something is really wrong with it. A friend once suggested me to use astringent to remove the dead skin but I was really hesitant because I feel that it is way too harsh on skin. 10 years later and I still wear this dull-looking face; still have this negative perception towards peeling. To address this issue, I am in constant search for products that could alleviate my skin condition in a gentle yet effective way. From sugar scrubs to peeling gels –where some are effective and most are just meh; now I am giving this Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon a shot, because why not?
Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence Review:
So, I have been in a struggle for a few months, trying to get rid of my blemishes and trying to normalize my pores’ shapes (they’re supposed to be round, but mine have all sorts of shapes). According to an examination I did in the Innisfree store, where they measure your skin everything-levels, my blemishes and pores could be solved with one of two essences. This one, or the one from the orchid collection. So, for starters I chose Innisfree Jeju Lava Sea Water Deep Essence.
Just to break the suspense, it did work, but I will still try the other one, in case it works better for my specific case. Below I will analyze the essence independently of my skin goal, and focusing solely on the feeling and sensation, also the effects of this essence!
Innisfree Bija Cica Balm Review:
As an avid Innisfree fan of course I wanted to try this product as soon as it was announced. Of course I took the opportunity and applied for a tester set of 5 days. Innisfree Bija Cica Balm was released with the same base idea of the previous True Care Cica Intensive balm, and everyone in Korea went crazy as soon as it came out. It doesn’t retail for a particularly cheap price, 22000 KRW, but also not expensive enough that it would stop people from trying it. Continue reading if it really worth the hype or not.
COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad Review:
Poring through countless pages on chemical exfoliation which ties into my interest in Asian skincare, it was only a matter of time before I came across the ever popular COSRX brand. And while their BHA Blackhead Power Liquid seems more fitting of the chemical exfoliation title, I was wary of the relatively high percentage of BHA (being a beginner and all), so I sought alternatives, and found this instead.
Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Recovery Gel Cream Review:
“Have I heard right? 74 % of snail secretion filtrate aka snail slime? That’s awesome! I must try that!” That is what I was thinking when I was first introduced to this product. 45 ml of snail slime (and other ingredients as well, but still, SNAIL SLIME!?) and everybody talking about it, was enough for me to order it straight away — for less than 5$ it would be a shame for not trying it, because I just love trying out the products that have unique ingredients.
