The Saem Urban Eco Harakeke Toner Review:

Even though I hadn’t read many good reviews about the Saem, I was still curious to try some of their products and so when I needed a new toner I decided to try this one out. My reasons for picking this toner aren’t that great – I wanted to try it because of “harakeke” which is a unique flax from New Zealand. It was the first time I’d seen a product with this particular plant, that and the green bottle looked so fresh, simple and well just appealing to me.

I’ll admit it’s not the best reason to try something out, but I suppose thinking the product looks good or has unique ingredients often attracts people to them, right? Or maybe it’s just me who falls for things like that?

ACWELL Traditional Grain Syrup Mugwort Mask Review:

Having had a pleasant experience with the Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner in the past, when I saw a deal on this range of sheet masks from ACWELL, I immediately looked up the ingredients before eagerly deciding to purchase them through a friend.

LaFORLAB Red Spot Repair Cream Review:

I tried this product once for free and then I liked the product so much that I went on and bought it myself. At the time I used it a bit on-and-off since I wanted to try several stuff. Then when I bought it I tried it until I finished the whole pack, and I think I might want it again? What sorcery is this?? I have to say right of the hook that it’s not a cheap product for its size, but I also have to say it’s everything I expected of the Skinfood Fresh Apple cream, and more!

It’s a brand that specializes in sensitive skin, and this is part of a collection that specializes in acne skin. This collection has natural botanical extracts and focuses on red spots – the bar was set really high.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Oily Acne-prone Skin Review:

When something is causing a hype, we readily jump into the bandwagon and that’s how it’s been for who knows how long. Basically, we take the words of other people on something. If the majority claims that a product is HG-worthy, then it must be. If everybody’s yapping about something, you instantly wanna try it too! Sadly for skincare, it’s never predictable. What may be astounding to others may not make sense to you. Sometimes you want to agree with the crowd but you just can’t because you don’t get the hype at all.

If there’s one thing though, that I entirely embrace and truly thank for, aside from wearing sunscreen, is the advice of double cleansing. I am never without double cleansing since I realize how good it is for the skin! Needless to say, I always have something for double cleansing and recently, I got Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water because I’ve been seeing it on other people’s feed.

[REVIEW] TIAM My Signature C Source

Tiam My Signature C Source Review:

I have, for nearly 2 years now, been incorporating a vitamin C serum in both my daily and nightly skincare routine. However, the serum(s) that I used only contained a 5% maximum concentration of vitamin C and it was quite expensive for a small amount. I did more research in the blogosphere and finally decided to give this much talked about serum a shot. This baby here contains a 20% concentration of vitamin C and was much cheaper! You don’t have to tell me twice. On the day it arrived, I started using it and have been very happy with the results.

This product used to be known as the O.S.T. C20 serum and Tiam (the company that produces the serum) is part of the Cosrx family. Now, I have a lot of faith in the entire Cosrx products line and so unsurprisingly, this blind faith extended to Tiam as well. I was not disappointed. This faint citrus scented serum has become my favourite part of my skincare routine, not only because I love the smell of oranges but mainly because it has actually helped lighten some of the scarring I had from blemishes around my chin area (the result of being a woman and suffering through hormonal blemishes during that time of the month).

Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack Review:

When talking about skin problems, it must be endless. When I am done with annoying pimples then other problems come. Whitehead and blackhead. Oh dear! But I am not a kind of girl who gives up easily, I am a fighter (well, actually a lazy fighter, LOL). I am only interested with easy and simple treatment to remove comedo from my nose area, hence I like using nose pack once or twice a week. This way is quite effective as far as I use it regularly. My favorite product was Biore Pore Pack until another brand teased me with their new collection. That’s Tonymoly Tako Pore series that had just launched in July, 2017.

Tonymoly Tako Pore series are created to resolve annoying blackheads and excess sebum problems. Tonymoly released some products in this line and the first one that catched my attention was its Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack. No other reason, I was truly attracted with the wide and unique shape of the strip. Besides, when I read the ingredients list I found this nose pack has great combination of Marine Plant extracts and Madagascar Mud. Those are great to absorb excess sebum and a pore-tightening effect. Let’s see how it works!

PhytoTree Get It Bean Mask Moisturizing Review:

I got this mask after receiving one of the brand’s hand cream for reviewing. The results were decent, the price was mid-range, but the package is on top with the cuteness! So I decided to try a mask. Why? Wouldn’t you love it if your friends gave you good presents with a cute packaging? Well, I know my friends like that kind of stuff – and since I’m a sucker for cuteness myself I tried it for myself too! And yes, to me beans are cute.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

[REVIEW] The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Review:

What happens when you combine science, environmentalism and effective marketing? Boom, The Ordinary, a name that immediately became household even to people that don’t really care about skincare. That happened not only because their prices are the cheapest on the market but because they make products that actually work. No, The Ordinary didn’t invent new technologies that do magic on your skin. If you quickly google it you will find that there’s other brands with similar products. That’s not the main point though. The point is that The Ordinary made as effective products- if not more effective, for a tiny fraction of the price. In my opinion they are making a revolution. They are proving that skincare can be for everyone. If one brand is really doing a lot to make people’s skin better, that is The Ordinary.

Now jumping to this peel, out of all the actives I’d say AHA and vitamin C are the most well-known. About a year ago, I went through an ”I need actives to function properly” faze. I’m not really proud about it, but as soon as I saw 30% AHA it must’ve taken me less than 2 minutes to buy this peel. The reason is that AHA and BHA (which by the way actually works better on my skin), are known to be effective deep exfoliants that help with fighting acne and for improve the skin’s look.

[REVIEW]  The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% Review:

I have always wanted to incorporate acid into my skincare routine but I always hesitate because I fear that it may end up causing skin damage instead of improving it. There are way too many precautions when using it that I thought to myself, is it even worth the plunge? But then, my other self won’t stop nagging: you wouldn’t know unless you try!

It goes without telling that in the end, my guts won, otherwise, I wouldn’t be here talking about acid. Truth be told, The Ordinary Lactic Acid is not the first active that I have tried, it’s my second actually. I bought this because I was looking for a milder alternative since I am a little overwhelmed by its bold sister –The Ordinary AHA 30%  BHA 2% Peeling Solution but hey, that’s another story!
