[REVIEW] NIOD Flavanone Mud

NIOD Flavanone Mud Review

NIOD Flavanone Mud Review:

I was on the lookout for a mud mask that is strong but at the same time wont dry out my skin. I had my share of coming across mud masks that sucked the moisture out of my skin, and that was not pleasant at all. Some are gentle enough, but didn’t really get the job done.

I kept seeing NIOD Flavanone Mud popping up on Instagram, which definitely has piqued my interest. NIOD (which stands for Non Invasive Options in Dermal Science) is a brand that is under Deceim, the same parent company as The Ordinary. However NIOD’s price range is higher than The Ordinary. So I started reading up online reviews about Flavanone Mud and decided that this mask definitely fit the bill of what I was looking for.

[REVIEW] The Face Shop Bubble Bubble Deep Foaming Cleanser

The Face Shop Bubble Bubble Deep Foaming Cleanser Review

The Face Shop Bubble Bubble Deep Foaming Cleanser Review:

When I was a kid, I used to watch my mother washed her face in the morning with the brewed black tea. She said it’s good for the skin and I believe that. Though I don’t do the same habit of washing face with the actual tea now, I almost always use tea-containing facial foam, say: Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Foam or Missha Frui-Tea Cleansing Foam.

So, when The Face Shop released facial foam line with tea extract, I decided to give it a try. The Bubble Bubble Foaming Cleanser was a new product of The Face Shop (maybe around the mid-2017) and was on 50% sale as promotional price when I bought it. Price is 5000 KRW in Korean stores for 100mL tube. The Bubble Bubble line comes with three different types for different purposes. Pink: the deep cleanser; Green: the mild cleanser gel; and Blue as the moisturizing cleanser. My skin has visible large pores around nose and easily stuck with the blackheads, so I chose the pink one, deep cleanser for my pores.

[REVIEW] New 2017 A’PIEU Fruit Vinegar Sheet Mask Pomegranate

A’PIEU Fruit Vinegar Sheet Mask Pomegranate Review

A’PIEU Fruit Vinegar Sheet Mask Pomegranate was purchased by Cosmeperks.

There are two new additions to the A’pieu sheet mask family. They are tasty looking and smell delicious, they are something I would buy if they came in a juice bottle! Their mask sheets are affordable and have never disappointed me, so this is a new adventure of course I am looking forward to. There are two options: lemon and pomegranate. The first is for softening and brightening, the second for softening and moisturizing – so of course in the dry winter I went for the moisturizing one. Let’s see how it goes!

[REVIEW] The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Tea Tree Cleansing Water

The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Tea Tree Cleansing Water Review

The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Tea Tree Cleansing Water Review:

When I ran out of my makeup remover, I was at loss on what to actually buy. There are a lot of cleansing creams and lotions, and even tissues, to choose from! What drew me to The SAEM’s Cleansing Water was the promise of removing even the most stubborn makeup and the claim that you can go straight to bed afterwards. I’ve never been loyal to a cleansing product ever, since I find that they all do their jobs equally well, but then this cleansing water might have changed my mind!

[REVIEW] Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence EX

Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence EX Review

Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence EX Review:

I have always been in love with Innisfree. My first foray into the world of Korean skincare products started with Innisfree mainly because I was intrigued with the ingredients they incorporated into their skincare: orchid, green tea, volcanic clusters, seawater, soybean, rice, broccoli, olives…you get the idea. Prior to this, I was a Dermalogica super fan and so a skincare range using natural and everyday “in-my-larder” ingredients was very alien to me.

As Innisfree is definitely cheaper than Dermalogica, I decided to give my wallet a break and opted for this (at that time) very strange concept of “essence” which apparently I was supposed to incorporate into a recommended gazillion step skincare routine.

[REVIEW] Peripera Pearly Night Inklasting Pink Cushion 2 Pink Beige SPF50+ PA+++

Peripera Pearly Night Inklasting Pink Cushion 2 Pink Beige Review

Peripera Pearly Night Inklasting Pink Cushion 2 Pink Beige Review:

I laughed like a devil when I got this cute pinky baby on my doorstep. Hhaha! This product sold like hotcakes. I saw some online sellers in my country brought it on their shop at night and wanted to make my order in the next morning, but it was sold out everywhere and very fast, oh my God! Lucky me, I finally got mine from a seller (but at a bit higher price). Well, it doesn’t matter because I am HAPPY!!!

So, Inklasting Pink Cushion is not a new product from Peripera. But a special thing from this cushion is it’s in Pearly Night edition, special and limited edition for holiday 2017. Peripera Pearly Night collection consists of Inklasting Cushion (pink and lavender), 4 shades of Peri’s Ink Velvet, highlighters, lip gloss, liquid shadows and hand creams. They are all housed in glittery packages (cute makeup alert!). And this cushion looks like a sparkly snow globe. This is why I really really wanted it! Now, let’s find out more about this cutie pinky baby! Here we go…

[REVIEW] A by BOM Supersense A All in One Mask Pack

A by BOM Supersense A All in One Mask Pack Review

A by BOM Supersense A All in One Mask Pack Review:

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe A. by BOM is a relatively new cosmetic brand; apparently, it is a beauty salon located in South Korea who styles Sandara Park, Boa and many other Korean star. Despite its being a new comer, it sure is taking all over social media. A. by BOM is one of those brands who are all over Instagram, or at least, the people that I follow. This brand’s commitment is to use only natural ingredients like grains, vegetable oil and flowers. As much as I am curious about their products, they are a little hard to source out so I was very happy when a friend gifted me the A. by BOM Supersense A. All in One Mask Pack!

Dr.Wu Renewal Serum With Mandelic Acid 18% Review

Dr.Wu Renewal Serum With Mandelic Acid 18% Review:

About a month before purchasing this serum, my friend and I were discussing how our complexion had greatly improved with the incorporation of acids into our daily skincare routine. She then mentioned how she briefly came across the term ‘mandelic acid’ but did not bother doing much research into it.

Being a naturally nosy person, I thought I should maybe educate myself on this new acid lest I miss out on a star ingredient that could give me flawless skin….wishful thinking but hey, what is life without hope amirite?

[REVIEW] The Saem Urban Eco Harakeke Toner

The Saem Urban Eco Harakeke Toner Review

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?
