[REVIEW] Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review

Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser Review:

Purito is a Korean brand that’s been making waves recently, mostly online in the Instagram beauty community, at least from what I’ve seen. Touting itself as brand with “safe and honest ingredients that everyone – friends, family, and even babies – can have faith in”, I have to say that they’ve set some pretty high standards for themselves.

So while I can see that the ingredients used in their products seem promising, you can never know how a product would work for you unless you try it for yourselves. Which is why when I received this as a gift from a friend for my birthday, I was delighted and intrigued. But does this cleanser live up to Purito’s claim of being mild and sensitive-skin friendly?

[REVIEW] Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet Basil

Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet Basil Review

Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet Basil Review:

When I heard Skinfood launched this Vege Garden line, I was intrigued to give it a chance, especially for their mask sheet. The Skinfood Vege Garden Mask Sheet seems to be very interesting as it consists of fresh vegetable ingredients (you know, typically Skinfood products) and some of them are never found from other brands. Skinfood have 10 kinds of vegetables and the mask sheet itself is made in Water, Essence and Cream essence type.

As I said, some variants of this Vege Garden Mask Sheet are quite unique and rare, at least for me. Kidney Bean, Basil, Peanut, and Mugwort. I think I’ve never tried any skincare consisting those ingredients. So I gave my first try to Basil mask sheet. Aside from my curiosity, I was attracted since this mask promises to purify pores with its refreshing water-type Basil essence. It would be a good treatment to my big pores (I hope so).

[REVIEW] Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review:

Ceramides are something that always interest me, so I tend to be interested in products that mention or contain ceramides. I had never tried anything from Holika Holika either, but when I saw that they had this ceramide emulsion I became curious and had many questions. In the past I totally ignored emulsions because I never found one that worked well for me, that was until I tried the Dermatory Hypoallergenic Emollient. After having such a great experience with that emulsion, I was curious to see if another ceramide emulsion would work as well for me as the Dermatory one had.

Holika Holika had another version of this ceramide emulsion in the past, and then they reformulated it. But the previous version seemed to have great reviews and I noticed that this emulsion had three types of ceramides which made me instantly want to try it. I’ve been using this emulsion since May, and the other day I noticed that I had almost finished it, so it felt like the right time to do a review of it.

[REVIEW] My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review:

MY SCHEMING should be a familiar name for any mask sheet fans, although it’s originated from Taiwan not South Korea. However, don’t underestimate Taiwan sheet masks since they have their own superiorities compared to Korean sheet masks. I personally haven’t tried a lot of Taiwan sheet masks brand, especially because they aren’t very popular in my country so that finding a local seller is very very difficult. Nevertheless, I frequently heard that MY SCHEMING is one of the popular brands beside My Beauty Diary, Dr. Morita, LOVEMORE, etc.

I finally had the opportunity to buy MY SCHEMING sheet masks during my holiday trip to Taiwan two weeks ago. And, my goodness, Taiwanese is just like Korean when it’s related to sheet masks; there are so many brands with various ranges and variants plus different discounts and promotions too! Fortunately I found a store that sells MY SCHEMING masks, allows me to buy three different variants which one of them is MY SCHEMING L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask.

[REVIEW] Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla

Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla Review

Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla Review:

This year Etude House finally came out with a brand new concealer called Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro. This concealer is actually an extended line from Etude earlier collection, the Big Cover line. To be honest the concealers on the Big Cover line aren’t impressive for me because the shade selections are so poor so I was excited to see Etude finally make this new concealer in 9 shades!

In those 9 shades, there are 2 corrector shades (Peach for dark circles and Mint for redness) and 7 skin shades range from fair to tan. There’s no dark shade deep enough for people with deep skin tone but I think it’s a good progress that they start making deeper shades. I’m hoping for the next release, Etude will come out with more shades for everyone.

I think this concealer is hyped in Korea because I saw so many Korean beauty Youtubers were reviewing it and most of them said they had a good experience with this concealer. It makes me really want to try it and finally after waiting for almost a month to get the concealer arrive on my place, finally it’s here and I can’t wait to try it!

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review:

Having really oily skin and big pores, and also being in a humid climate like Singapore, has caused my skin to be peppered with blackheads and tiny clogged pores. To solve this problem, I have searched high and low for a suitable product that would provide oil control and not dry out my skin at the same time. I came across the COSRX blackhead power liquid, which is a chemical exfoliator.

[REVIEW] The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++

The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review

The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review:

I’ve been using The Saem’s Pink sun cream for almost a year now, and you can say that while I’ve grown bored of it, it’s still the one sunscreen that I always reach for. Earlier this year when I went to order it, I noticed that The Saem had a couple of different sunscreens, ones that I had never seen before, namely this green sun cream. Naturally, I looked it up and found that the ingredients looked very similar to the pink one.

Because I find the pink one a bit drying in winter, I wondered whether the green version would be more moisturizing and better for winter than the pink version. I decided to try the green version out after noticing that titanium dioxide was higher up in the ingredients list than in the pink version. Mostly I just decided to try it out because I was feeling bored with the pink version of the sunscreen.

[REVIEW] Celderma Crystal Skin Mask

Celderma Crystal Skin Mask Review

Celderma Crystal Skin Mask Review:

Do you know who is the queen advertising these masks? Song Jihyo from Running Man! I’m a huge fan (of her as an actress, I’m just aware she’s more famous for Running Man), and I thought her skin was so much better when Banila Co made her a project and had her have no makeup but proper skin care. From then on I thought if Song Jihyo swears by a product it may actually be effective.

Anyway, that’s what drove me to try Celderma, which is the brand she endorses now. This specific mask promotes Glass Skin, and let’s face it, that’s one thing Jihyo had far ahead of her time! I want to try glass skin too.

[REVIEW] Guerisson 9 Complex Moisture Balancing Cream

Guerisson 9 Complex Moisture Balancing Cream Review

Guerisson 9 Complex Moisture Balancing Cream Review:

Horse oil was one of the ingredients that I never wished to ever use on my skin. However, after using a routine with multiple steps that never seemed to help my skin, I got to the point where I decided to just try horse oil and see if it would help my skin. It felt like I could never find a moisturizer that was heavy enough for my skin, or a routine that actually did something.

So almost a year ago, I decided to reset my routine and so I cut everything out of it except my sunscreen and the Guerisson 9 Complex cream. It was risky, considering I never had tried the cream before and I was replacing a ten-step routine with two items. I expected my skin to look even worse that before, but what surprised me was that my skin looked no worse (and no better) but considering I was only use two items it was still surprising to me.

After that I slowly introduced a few new products, and what I found was that the Guerisson 9 Complex cream was the best cream I had ever used (despite me not wanting to use horse oil… heh). It was actually heavy enough for my skin and perfect, and my skin looked the best it had looked in years. Anyway, so that was the original 9 complex cream. When I was using my second jar of it I looked at the Guerisson website and found out that they had reformulated and the cream and added a new cream to the line-up. I was honestly a bit upset, but also curious to find out about the new cream.

The new Guerisson 9 Complex cream is the one in this review – the Moisture Balancing cream. The other two creams (the original one and the ginseng one) had the formula’s changed slightly although I’m not sure what has been changed. I never intended to try the moisture balancing cream, but as I said I was curious about it, so I looked up to see what was different from the regular one. Well it turned out that instead of just horse oil this one contains five types of ceramides! If that doesn’t sound like heaven for dry and dehydrated skin, I don’t know what would. Plus, I found out this one was designed for dehydrated skin, so honestly it sounded so perfect that I just had to try it out.
