Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask Madecassoside Review

Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask Madecassoside Review:

The first time I laid eyes on this mask was when I first got into the madecassoside/centella asiatica hype and one of my friends included it in my gift exchange parcel back in April last year.

Safe to say, I liked it enough to order a few more when the official Innisfree website was having a sale, so it’s about time I wrote a proper review on it here to share my views as someone with reactive skin.

[REVIEW] CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient

CLIO Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient Review

Dermatory Allantoin Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Emollient was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Because my skin is dry and dehydrated, I’ve long known that I need some kind of emulsion or emollient in my routine. Honestly, every thing I’ve tried until now hasn’t really done that much for my skin. Which is why I haven’t tried any for a while especially since because I didn’t think I needed one during summer. However, now that it’s autumn I thought it’s a perfect time to start looking for one to use during winter.

At first glance I thought this Dermatory emollient didn’t look any different from any other emulsion I’ve used before and I wondered if it was very similar to the Dr. Jart one, if it was just Clio trying to create a dupe or something similar. However, once I looked at the Dermatory website and saw how it was free of 20 harmful ingredients and that it contained shea butter, allantoin and ceramides I became interested to see how it well it works. According to Dermatory it also should be soothing and help to repair the moisture barrier, well I’ve read that from many products before and few actually seem to live up to that claim. So, from the start I was skeptical and unsure if I could believe those claims yet hopeful, so read on to see if I was disappointed or happy in the end.

[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.

[REVIEW] Skinfood Beauty in a Food Mask Sheet Centella Asiatica

Skinfood Beauty in a Food Mask Sheet Centella Asiatica Review

Skinfood Beauty in a Food Mask Sheet Centella Asiatica Review:

This sheet mask came as a beauty sample with my order when I restocked on some K-Beauty favorites. Previously I had tried Skinfood’s Wash Off Rice Mask and was neutral about it – while it was easy to use, it was hard to tell if it made a difference in my skin or not. My previous experience aside, I was curious about what this sheet mask had to offer.

For those new to the brand, Skinfood is known for its skincare and beauty products that boast creating healthy-looking skin using natural ingredients. Centella Asiatica is an ingredient found in Asia that is used to treat and help troubled skin with soothing properties. Apparently the ingredient is attributed to clearing acne-prone skin, which is appealing for someone like me who experiences the occasional breakout.

[REVIEW] La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare Review

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare Review:

La Roche-Posay is a famous drugstore brand from France. Their products are claimed by dermatologists and are tested on sensitive skins. And that’s the reason why I gave this one a try.

There was one time that I got a horrible breakout because of cosmetic allergy (poor me) and I decided to go to a dermatologist. She gave me an antibiotic liquid and warned that it would dry my skin. And you know, my skin was really really sensitive at that time, so she recommended me to use the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare to gently moisturize my skin. The name of this products may seem really weird to be honest however it does describe itself pretty exactly. We will get to that!

[REVIEW] Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream

Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream Review

Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream Review:

When I first started using Korean skin care products, snail seemed to be the most amazing thing ever. I loved the first snail cream that I used, finding the texture and feel of it to be great, since then I’ve used a number of different products with snail and honestly, I’ve been a bit disappointed with them. However, I am still always willing to try another snail product because you never know when you will find the perfect snail product, or at least, that was what I hoped!

Mizon’s snail cream attracted me because it has such a high percentage of snail in it, the ones I used previously I later realized only contained minute traces of snail mucin. So, I figured this repair cream must be more effective than the snail creams I had tried before. The fact that it also comes in a tube appealed to me because I think tubes are more hygienic.

[REVIEW] Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask Review

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask was purchased by Cosme Perks.

It is my first mask from this luxury brand, Sulwhasoo. Well, who doesn’t know Sulwhasoo? This Korean premium brand is well known for its high performance skincare products using all natural ginseng and herbal ingredients. Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask itself is very popular on some beauty forums in my country (the First Care Activating Serum is also said to be a best-selling product from this brand). Almost all (or maybe all) of the reviewers give this mask a high rating. And I was so lucky to get a chance to test it by myself. Curiously, why a lot of people like this mask, I was so excited to give it a try.

The interesting claim from this Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask is about the JAUM Balancing Complex™, which is designed to improve skin balance. I guess I need to try this formula since I have an oily-combi skin. I have very dry patches on cheek area but my T-zone is very oily. Yes, I need to balance it, right? They also claim the essence of this mask was made by precious Korean herbal ingredients, and we all know that mostly Korean herbal products work very very well. But, is that true? Do not waste our time and let’s find out if I agree with those reviewers who give it a high score, or otherwise?

[REVIEW] Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Moist SPF50+ PA+++ Vanilla

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Moist SPF50+PA+++ Vanilla Review

Etude House Precious Mineral Beautifying Block Cream Moist SPF50+ PA+++ Vanilla Review:

When Etude House came out with a new range of BB creams in different shades than their usual ones, I just knew that I had try to them. Especially when I saw that they had ones with a pink base rather than just the usual yellow one. The previous BB creams from Etude House worked out well for me, only the undertone and shade didn’t match, but they lasted well on my skin. So, I finally thought that I would find the perfect BB cream when Etude House launched these.

This line of BB creams comes in 5 different shades which have some pink based, yellow based and even neutral based colors, so that they should work better for more people’s skin tones, hopefully.
