[REVIEW] SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review:

Beauty trends may revolve and changes every now and then, including the star ingredients in beauty products. There were times when almost all brands suddenly developed products with snail mucin, aloe vera, galactomyces, etc. Looking back in 2018, I think centella asiatica is the star ingredient! So many beauty brands invented new products with centella asiatica in their formulation and it became one of the selling points. No wonder, centella asiatica (also known as tiger grass or ‘pegagan’) has been famous for generations as medication that soothes skin damages, hydrates, and reduces uneven skin tones.

With all the hype marketing, of course I fell into Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream when it was launched! I couldn’t find many reviews on this moisturizer because Skin1004 is more famous for its Madagascar Cenetella Asiatica ampoule and whenever I Googled, reviews for the ampoule popped up. From the few reviews I found, they said Skin1004 Cream is lightweight and non-sticky, so as a normal-to-oily skin bearer, I chose to go with it. A week later, Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream arrived to my house.

[REVIEW] JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black

JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black Review

JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black Review:

Compared to the sheet masks from other brands, JM Solution’s are relatively higher in price, especially in my country that has no JM Solution official stores yet. So don’t be surprised to find that the price is two-times higher than Nature Republic, The Face Shop, or Etude House.

JM Solution’s actually a short for ‘Journey to Miracle Solution’ – which is a good way to advertise its claim. I’ve found mask sheets from JM Solution quite attractive since it has a minimalist, classy design on the packaging which suits my personal preference. Moreover, JM Solution also provides a lot of varieties with their own unique main ingredients! It took me quite some time to decide among Lacto Saccharomyces Golden Mask, Centella Madecca Capsule Mask, Water Luminous S.O.S Ringer Mask and more, but finally made up my mind to buy JM Solution Water Luminous Silky Cocoon Mask Black. More because the cocoon component; so please don’t disappoint me!

[REVIEW] HELLOSKIN JUMISO Water Splash Mask

HELLOSKIN JUMISO Water Splash Mask Review

HELLOSKIN JUMISO Water Splash Mask Review:

HELLOSKIN Jumiso itself has proclaimed quite a nice meaning toward the brand. In Korean, ‘ju’ (주다) means to give while ‘miso’ means smile, so literally ‘jumiso’ means to give smile. Or to make us smile, maybe? On the official website, HELLOSKIN Jumiso advertisement is like this : “Change your daily mask pack to our HELLOSKIN and put a big smile on your face. HELLOSKIN concentrates on the small things to create a big effect.”

Let’s be honest since the beginning. I’ve been eyeing the Jumiso sheet masks from quite a long time ago, but I had to restrain the desire to buy one. This brand has relatively higher price compared to we-all-know brands like Etude House, Nature Republic, The Face Shop, and so on. While I’m pretty satisfied with Etude House Air Therapy mask sheet, why should I buy other (more expensive) brands?

However, people say that “never let go of the things you can’t stop thinking about”. So I finally decided to buy two variants of Jumiso sheet masks; Jumiso Water-splash Sheet Mask and Jumiso First Skin-Lightening Sheet Mask. Besides these two, there are also Jumiso Rich Nourishment Sheet Mask, Jumiso Whoa Whoa Soothing Mask, and Jumiso Chewy Elasticity Sheet Mask that were launched together.

[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.

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.

[REVIEW] A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule

A'pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review

A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review:

It starts with the name. It’s as simple as it is. We like cool and creative names but, let’s face it, it’s more practical to call a product by what it is! For example, you wouldn’t say “Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack” all the time, you would just say “Benton Centella Mask” or something.

With this name there is no going wrong. I also like the design, which matches the collection completely. And the simple promise of skin protection. But does the A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule perform as well as it sells?

[REVIEW] ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++

ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

Choosing a sunscreen product is always a tricky matter for me. As far as I know, Korean brands don’t develop sunscreen products range as vary as they do toward serums, essences, or toners. Thus, I personally have my own limitations and provisos for my options, such as paraben-free, no white cast, minimalist greasiness, etc.

While I was eyeing some options, one of them was ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++. I was slightly confused because the review of this product was very scant (maybe because this product was still pretty new), but I finally decided to give this a try due to the convincing claims and advertisement of this product.

[REVIEW] SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner

SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner Review

SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner was purchased by Cosmeperks.

To my ears, SOME BY MI is a pretty new brand. It’s well-known to most people for the 30-days Miracle line, while the brand proclaim itself to have relatively safe and beneficial ingredients. It also prints the brand’s logo beside this tagline : “SOME BY MI’S MIND : Remarkable skin transformation from natural ingredients’. Fascinating, right?

Although I have relatively normal skin, I always think that uneven skin tone is the one unresolved problem for me. I’ve been rambling around many skincare products yet I found no treatment to make my complexion more even. So when I was given the rare chance to do a sponsored review from Nigama (Cosmeperks), I gladly accepted the option of SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner. This product was newly-launched and the advertisement is quite captivating too (must be one of the reasons why it was on the list), so had to go with this!

However, before we move out, I’m gonna warn you that this review could be a little bit long, seeing that this toner contains vitamin C as one of its star ingredients. Personally, I have very scant experience with this component, so I’ll include some research to support my review.

[REVIEW] Dr. MORITA Egg Shell Membrane & Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask

Dr MORITA Egg Shell Membrane Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask Review

Dr. MORITA Egg Shell Membrane & Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask Review:

Honestly, Dr. Morita mask had already caught my attention by the first time I entered every Taiwan drugstore. Dr. Morita really does a good job providing the mask sheet enthusiasts, as there are soooo many ranges and variants of Dr. Morita masks. And, as if the various ranges aren’t interesting enough, they also come in eye-catching packaging.

While at first Dr. Morita’s constant paraben content makes me in doubt whether I should try the products or not, I finally decided to give this a try : Dr. Morita Egg Shell Membrane & Sake Yeast Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask. Why this one? Well, this variant has a bright yellow cover which is very appealing, and the main component – egg shell membrane – is quite unique for me. So, it’s mask sheet time!
