Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla Review

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Matte #Vanilla Review:

Despite the disappointing experience I had with the moist version of this bb cream, I still found myself becoming curious about how the matte bb cream would perform. After all I always trust Etude House products and their bb cream was the first one I ever used. Plus, I’ve never been a fan of dewy finishes, so it wasn’t surprising that I didn’t like the moist one.

I also read some reviews where people said the matte wasn’t too drying and it was just less dewy which sounded perfect to me. However, I was concerned the formula of the bb cream wouldn’t be any better than the moist version. But how could I ever know if the formula was as bad if I never tested it myself? It seems wrong to decide something must be bad without actually trying it out, which was why I decided to try the matte version instead of turning my back on it.

[REVIEW] Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch | Before & After Pics

Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch Review

Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch Review:

When I ran out of my favorite acne patch and it was also sold out everywhere, finally I had to move forward to another brand. I actually did not search any reviews on internet though I’m not that experienced with acne patch products. Just by seeing this product was ready on my favorite online shop, I immediately ordered it.

I chose Skinfood Tea Tree Secret Spot Patch because it contains tea tree leaf oil which I believe, is a good ingredient to beat blemishes effectively as it contains strong antibacterial and antifungal components. I rarely use Skinfood skincare products, I usually buy only their makeup line, but since this brand is well-known for their natural and great formula, so I expected this product would give a good result for my acne prone skin.

Nature Republic Hawaiian Fresh Clear Serum Review:

I was looking for a light serum to be used in the morning that time, since my previous morning serum had depleted. And, tara! Nature Republic Hawaiian Fresh line had just been released! I’ve never used any Nature Republic products before except for their mask sheet, but the claim of its serum actually caught my attention. It’s said to be suitable for oily skin; well I have oily skin and I exactly don’t want my face looks greasy for the entire day. Plus, it claims to treat pore-clogging, too; it has all my skin wants!

[REVIEW] Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum

Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum Review

Iunik Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum Review:

Sometimes I wonder if it is me or if is human nature to be self-contradictory.  On one hand we look for value for money, but on the other hand when products seem too inexpensive compared to similar in the range, there are doubts over its efficacy and authenticity.

I chanced upon the brand Iunik and liked its packaging simplicity as well as the reasonable price point.  But really, what brand is this? And for the product claims, the pricing seemed too good to be true. After googling on it, alas with limited information found, I decided to take the plunge anyway.

So this is what I found for sharing – Iunik is from South Korea and a newbie to the (I would say) very saturated skincare industry, having entered only in November 2016.  Its name actually stands for Ideal, Unique, Natural, Ingredients, Know-how.  Although the brand is new, the company apparently has more than 10 years of experience in skin care and cosmetics products, mainly exporting out of South Korea.

It offers quite a number of products and I decided on the Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum because my dehydrated skin really needs help.

Forencos Volcanic Ash Detox Sheet Mask Review

Forencos Volcanic Ash Detox Sheet Mask Review:

I bought this mask because its ingredients really appealed to me. I keep using the masks from welcos that contain volcanic ash from Jeju and they’re my holy grail sheet masks so I was really curious to see if I’d like this one as much.
To shortly sum it up, volcanic ash can be found anywhere near a volcano and people have been using it for cosmetic purposes since the prehistoric eras. It has many benefits for the skin as it can help healing rashes, blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, psoriasis, and even stretch acne.

Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF35 PA+++ Review

Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF35 PA+++ Review:

Sunscreen is the most vital part of a skincare routine, isn’t it? Not only it is one of the most effective methods of anti-aging, it also prevents the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Innisfree is a popular brand that I personally like a lot. I have previously tried several of their products before and not only they are inexpensive, they’re also effective.

They released a while ago a new line of sunscreens, hoping they would be as good as the previous ones I’ve tried from the brand, I bought the No Sebum version. No Sebum, you say? We’ll see that.

[REVIEW] belif Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner

belif Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner Review

belif Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner Review:

My experience with the belif The True Crème Aqua Bomb moisturizer was pleasant and I was interested in learning more about belif’s other products. I saw a major beauty store was offering a reward that featured travel and tester sizes of belif products that could be used to do a full K-beauty skincare routine, which I bought. The toner was included as the second step in the process. Prior to trying the set, I never used toner, thinking it was an extraneous product that skincare companies used to get people to buy and use more products in their routines. Out of all the other items, I really liked the scent of this product and did notice a difference after using many times. When I ran out of the tester size, I purchased the full sized product.

For those who are new to the brand, belif is a mid-price skincare brand from Korea, best known for their face moisturizers. Belif products are described as being inspired by 19th Century apothecary processes, using the purest ingredients, combined with modern skin science.

[REVIEW] Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque

Kiehl's Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque Review

Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque Review:

First, let’s get a bit of our knowledge on the history of the brand.
Kiehl’s is one of the most prestagious brand name when it comes to high-end skincare products.
In 1951, there was a store founded to serve patrons in East Village, Manhattan. Until 1894, John Kiehl purchased the store and renamed it Kiehl Pharmacy. In 1921, Irving Morse – apprentice to Kiehl bought the pharmacy. This marks another remarkable developing stage of the brand. During the 70s, Kiehl’s gained great popularity as a luxurious cosmetics brand with safe ingredients and especially, the launch of the renown Calendula Herbal extract Alcohol-free toner. The distinct marketing method of Kiehl’s during this time is based on word-of-mouth and giving free samples to customers. Later, Kiehl’s is purchased by L’oreal Group and now, Kiehl’s has more than 250 stores and showrooms all over the world. Until now, Kiehl’s has gained the reputation for their wide range of products: haircare, skincare, fragrance, bodycare and men’s grooming. All of the products from Kiehl’s are well-known for their natural-based and safe ingredients offered via sophisticated formulations.

To celebrate my bachelor graduation, I decided to get something a bit fancy and Kiehl’s masks came first in my mind. Moreover, the Spring weather in Vietnam is getting so hot and humid. Everyday in the period from early January to March, the temperature would rocket from 28oC to as high as 34-35oC at noon and then “calm down” back to 27-28oC in the evening. Usually, my skin would lose immense amount of hydration and produce a lot of sebum if left unattended.

Combining all of the conditions, I would opt for something that offers refreshing sensation, helps control my sebum production and clears up my congested pores. Up till this point, you may know what I was about to get: yes, you can tell by the title already haha. It’s the Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque. My summary review for this product is: I love it x 10 times.

[REVIEW] Duft & Doft beVERYclear Peeling Gel

Duft & Doft beVERYclear Peeling Gel Review

Duft & Doft beVERYclear Peeling Gel Review:

My favorite part of skincare is exfoliating. It’s fun but also very important. Exfoliating takes away a lot of things that shouldn’t be on the skin. In my opinion, it is a vital part on everyone’s routine. I remember reading an interview of the group kard on allure (yeah I know, it doesn’t really add up), and the members said the one step they can’t go without is exfoliating. If I can trust someone’s advice, that’s people with flawless skin.

I’ve been wanting to try this type of peel for years since it is less harsh on the skin than normal (not chemical) peels and it’s veeery satisfying to see more and more gunk coming out of the skin. I was in between this one and the secret key lemon peel but I decided on this one since it contains AHA, an ingredient that’s very famous for working well against acne.
