[REVIEW] Scinic The Simple Calming Toner pH 5.5

Scinic The Simple Calming Toner Review

Scinic The Simple Calming Toner pH 5.5 was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This is a new product from a brand that honestly receives less love than it should. And after using it I can tell you this toner also receives an underwhelming amount of love, it definitely deserves more!

Scinic isn’t a brand that gets enough recognition, but I hope you will read this and maybe give the brand a shot. It truly is a simple toner and I am more surprised with this toner than I have been with others.

[REVIEW] New Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Madecassoside Mask | Soothing & Defense

Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Madecassoside Mask Review

Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Madecassoside Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Etude House recently added few more masks to their signature mask collection. It took me a good 20 minutes in the store to choose which one I wanted, and since I couldn’t decide I ended up choosing the one most people would probably be more curious about – Madecassoside. Now, I have tried my share of madecassoside or soothing and repairing masks for sensitive skin, so I have a high standard. And very high hopes actually! The other newly released variants are Cherry Blossom, White Flower, and Artemisia.

[REVIEW] New 2018 Innisfree Ato Soothing Gel | For Very Dry & Sensitive Skin

Innisfree Ato Soothing Gel Review

Innisfree Ato Soothing Gel was purchased my Cosmeperks.

I was so excited when they released this new collection! I was intrigued by the collection’s Soothing Cream and this soothing gel (I use Nature Republic’s Aloe Soothing Gel and Cactus Soothing Gel religiously – and they happened to finish coincidentally when this came out so yay opportunity!), and when Nigama suggested I try one I jumped right into this one.

I have been using it religiously on my night routine, to soothe from the aggressions of the day, and sometimes in the morning. How is it different than a normal Aloe soothing gel? You may want to check this if you use soothing gel on your face.

[REVIEW] It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector with Licorice

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector Review

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector Review:

Once I heard about these essences I was curious about them, especially since there are so many varieties and different types. I spent a lot of time researching different ones deciding which one to try. Of course, in the end I decided to pick the LI effector – which contains liquorice. Why liquorice? Well because it’s meant to be good at reducing redness which sounds perfect to me. After all I’m sick of looking like Rudolph the red nosed reindeer or like a tomato all year round.

The LI effector also had the best reviews, it seemed like it helped a lot of people’s redness. So, I was hopeful that maybe it would work for me. Despite the triethanolamine, I thought it also has a pretty good ingredient list with a good percentage of liquorice too.

[REVIEW] New 2018 Aritaum Seaweed Dust Cut Moisturizing Mask

Aritaum Seaweed Dust Cut Moisturizing Mask Review

Aritaum Seaweed Dust Cut Moisturizing Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

The pollution in Korea is crazy. To the point I got asthma and skin allergies because of it! If you check the news, the pollution level here is God-knows-how-many-times worse than European levels. With such conditions it’s not unusual that lots of Korean brands have whole lines dedicated to fixing the problems pollution gives to our skins.

This line consists of 4 masks, and I chose my first one to be the Moisturizing one (in Korean they call it hydrating, not moisturizing, which is why I chose it). Because my skin needs hydration and moisture (which this blue mask promises), elasticity (which the whole line promises) and anti-pollution care (literally the whole point of this line). I have high expectations for this baby.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask Madecassoside

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.
