iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil Review:

If you are into k-beauty, then you might be familiar with double cleansing. This two-step cleansing technique consists of using an oil-based cleanser to get rid of dirt, makeup, and sunscreen residue before using a water-based cleanser. For someone who only wears light makeup (or no makeup at all) daily, I didn’t think I needed to do both to fully clean my face. Boy was I wrong! Ever since I added an oil-based cleanser as the first step in my skincare routine, I noticed a huge improvement. Particularly, I saw a decrease in the number of blackheads and whiteheads on my nose.

Once I realized the importance of double cleansing, I made it a goal to find the perfect oil-based cleanser for me. Most k-beauty enthusiasts prefer to use cleansing balms such as the Banila Co. Clean It Zero or the Heimish All Clean Balm. I’ve tried samples of both and I found them effective but also inconvenient. To me, the idea of using a product which comes in a tub (with a lid that you’d have to twist open and a spatula to scoop out the product), is just too bothersome so I decided to get an oil cleanser in liquid form instead.

The brand iUNIK was fairly new to me when I got this product. I had read great reviews about the brand from a lot of Instagram influencers so I got intrigued. So when a Shopee store carrying iUNIK products went on a 50% off sale for Black Friday last year, I immediately got it. If I remember correctly, I scored this for only $12 which is a decent price for a cleansing oil.

I’ve been using this product for about three months now so I think my opinion about this is now pretty solid. You what that means right? It’s time for a review! But before that, here are some things you might want to know…

[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.

[REVIEW] Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun

Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun Review

Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun Review:

Purito is a brand that I probably wouldn’t have encountered if it wasn’t for Instagram’s Asian beauty community. Unlike famous brands like Innisfree, Etude House, Tony Moly etc. which have both physical and online stores, I believe Purito products are only available online. Nonetheless, this didn’t stop them from being one of the most loved brands in the community.

Their philosophy is to use clean ingredients to restore the skin barrier. While this is mostly the case for Korean brands, Purito definitely takes this motto by heart. My favorite products from them are from the Green Level line in which all the products have ingredients with an EWG rating of 1-2 (green, hence the name). Basically, these low values of EWG rating means that the ingredients used are non-irritating. This makes the products from this line ideal for sensitive skin types.

Ever since Purito released this sunscreen, I’ve always been intrigued to find out how incredible it is since everyone raves about all the other products from this line. I’ve been using this for a few weeks now so I’m finally ready to drop my verdict.

Naturie Hatomugi Skin Conditioner Toner Review:

I’ve been wanting to try this product for so long! It’s one of the products in my wishlist. So when it’s on sale (and just so you know, my current toner is almost finishing), I purchased it.

My first thought after receiving this toner was “Wow, this bottle is so big! But so cheap!” It is cheap, and bigger than any other toners that I have tried before.

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 2 Step Mask Review

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 2 Step Mask Review:

With the centella/cica hype booming so suddenly the past couple of years, I started to see this brand everywhere, with the centella ampoule as its main breakout star. But while I’ve not had the chance to try that product from Skin1004, I think this 2-step mask would be a decent gauge of how this product line would work for me. So, let’s see, shall we?

IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream Review

IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream Review:

Wow, finally this IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream arrived to my hands! Honestly I’d been eyeing this product for quite some time before decided to buy this at the end. While the first IUNIK products I heard was the serum (Black Snail Restore Serum, Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum, Beta Glucan Power Moisture Serum, and Tea Tree Relief Serum), unfortunately I had to turn a blind eye to it since I still had a stack of serum stocks, even when I thought that their claims were pretty interesting. In the other hand, I was running out of my daily moisturizer so I eventually braced myself to buy a moisturizer from IUNIK instead.

I was in serious contemplation since the product name is IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream. I always preferred to use light skincare products due to my normal-to-oily skin type, but a lot of reviews praised IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream ability to perfectly moisturize and give nutrition to the skin. Moreover, the fact I have to work in a room with heavy blow of air conditioner everyday also one of my considerations. I doubt this product, as a gel cream, would give the perfect moisture to my skin. In due course, my curiosity won and I took the liberty to have a go at IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream.

[REVIEW] 2019 NEW Cosrx Shield Fit All Green Comfort Sun SPF50+/PA++++

Cosrx Shield Fit All Green Comfort Sun SPF50+PA+++ Review

Cosrx Shield Fit All Green Comfort Sun SPF50+/PA++++ was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Cosrx has been releasing some interesting new products lately, and suffice to say, I’ve been feeling pretty left out from all the hype as I’ve only had experience using their older stuff. So when Nigama offered this review opportunity shortly after the release of the new Cosrx sunscreens, I immediately jumped to chance.

And as there were 1+1 launch offers, this is just the first half of my reviews for the sleek-looking sun products from Cosrx – the Snail Essence Sun (Moisture) coming up soon! So, without further ado, here’s my take on this new sunscreen aimed towards fellow sensitive-skinned folks.

Swanicoco Bitamin C Calm Down Skintoner Review

Swanicoco Bitamin C Calm Down Skintoner Review:

I first got this product as a part of the brand’s supporters event “Swans 2”. But I used it all up, and I loved it, and so did my boyfriend, we ended up getting a second one. Now I already finished it and since winter is almost gone I probably won’t get another one… until October.

It was my second Vitamin C product but as a toner I didn’t expect that much of it, except that obviously I was pleasantly surprised!

It’s not the cheapest toner but obviously it’s inexpensive and good or I wouldn’t be going back to it over and over.

[REVIEW] CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Toner

CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Toner Review

CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Toner Review:

I guess it is kind of obvious that I’m a fan of Dermatory products, considering this is the third product from them that I’m reviewing! Well I didn’t like the Dermatory sunscreen, but the emollient (emulsion) was great, and so I wanted to try the toner too. With dry and dehydrated skin, I’m always on the look out for hydrating watery toners. Dermatory markets this one as being good for sensitive skin and as being soothing. I wondered if it would be something similar to Etude House’s Soon Jung toner (which is great), as in ideal for when your skin is irritated.

It also has a short ingredient list and contains many interesting things – such as Ceramide NP, allantoin and a lot of extracts including centella, fig, honey and damask rose flower water. So, it sounded like another watery, hydrating toner with the added benefits of centella and ceramide! It also contains panthenol, like Etude House’s Soon Jung. Read on if you’re curious to see how hydrating and soothing this toner is!
