VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review

VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review:

If you read my review about VT X BTS Black Collagen Pact, you probably know how much I love the product. Simply, since I’ve tried that foundation, I started to be a big fan of VT Cosmetics. I was attracted to try more, especially their base makeup. And one product that I kept eyeing was their Cica Redness Cover Cushion (seriously, I was like seeing my bias photo everytime I saw this product on my IG’s feeds, lol). And I finally got my cushion about a month ago, so I think I am good enough to write this review for you. They have 3 shades and I purchased the darkest one, number 23 (Natural Beige). The others are number 13 (Vanilla Beige) and 21 (Light Beige).

Ah, in case you haven’t known yet, VT Cosmetics launched Cica X Care line in the middle of 2018. This line consists of skincare and makeup products that have Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica) as their main ingredients. You know, this ingredient got very popular recently as it is able to treat acne and sensitive skin very well.

Aside from the main ingredient that would be perfect for my sensitive and acne prone skin, there was also another thing that intrigued me to try this cushion. A thing that makes this cushion looks very unique. What’s that? Mmm, keep reading please!

[REVIEW] IUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream

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.

IUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum Review

IUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum Review:

Snail Mucin is one of the most popular ingredients in Korean cosmetics. On its basis, cosmetic brands produce gels, creams, masks, serums and etc. For myself, to get acquainted with this magical ingredient, I chose a serum from the brand iUNIK.

The brand’s philosophy is to produce products that are ideal for the skin using natural ingredients. Agree, it sounds very tempting) The brand does not have a large number of products in its lineup. That is why I want to believe that all their products will be well formulated and will help in the fight for beautiful skin.

[REVIEW] COSRX AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild

COSRX AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild Review

COSRX AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild Review:

Recently COSRX released a new range of skincare products called the AC Collection for acne-prone skin and this seem pretty good to be true. As someone who has always been combating with acne-prone skin, this seem like a godsend. With a name like “Calming Liquid Mild”, this particular product stood out to me from the Cosrx AC Collection.

Not only that, since I was also looking to replace my previous toner that is COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner. I was searching for something that would be more moisturizing. Before purchasing, I usually do some online research to find out more about the ingredients and check if it is appropriate for my skin type. Did this product live up to my expectations? Here is my review on the Calming Liquid Mild toner.

[REVIEW] Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream

Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream Review

Cosrx Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Lately Cosrx seems to be on fire and releasing a lot of new products! Which honestly is quite exciting, because well I’ve always been a fan of their products. So, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to try this new product of theirs, I was instantly curious. Why was I instantly curious, you might wonder, well because of the name! Is it a toner or a cream? A mix of the two? Something like an emulsion? Well, these kinds of questions were going through my head, and honestly, I do like to try new products, especially those that I am curious about.

First of all, I wanted to find out what kind of product it was. The name is confusing to me, and well I wasn’t sure if I was getting a toner, emulsion or a cream. Apparently, this can be used as either a toner or a cream, depending on your skin type. To me that sounds bizarre, I mean how can a product really be either a cream or a toner? But I guess what Cosrx means is that if you have dry or dehydrated skin, you can use this product as a toner. But those with combination or oily skin can use it as a cream. Honestly though, I still must admit I am sceptical about how a product can be either a toner or a cream.

[REVIEW] Mamonde Day Relief BB Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ Light Beige

Mamonde Day Relief BB Cream SPF 50 PA Light Beige Review

Mamonde Day Relief BB Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ Light Beige Review:

Mamonde is actually a brand that I don’t know much about, of course I’ve heard their name a lot but I still didn’t know much about them. I always think of their products having lots of floral components and concepts. I’ve also seen their name or products advertised in dramas, but usually when I’m watching a drama I don’t pay much attention to the products advertised. Lately I’ve been quite curious about their products and was debating which one to try until I saw that they had released a new line of BB creams.

They actually came out with three new BB creams, but I chose this one because according to Mamonde it is best suited for dry skin. Mamonde actually released these several months ago, but I was unsure if I should try this one or one of the other types. The fact that it comes in one shade – light beige, made me unsure too.

But the fact that it should be pink toned made me curious. All of the previous bb creams I’ve tried that are meant to have a pink undertone have been various shades of orange and yellow on me at least. So, you could say I partly tried this to see what kind of undertone it had and to see if it was also yellow/orange on me too. I was hopeful that Mamonde would prove me wrong and that I might even find a decent bb cream out of this experiment.

[REVIEW] COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review:

Having really oily skin and big pores, and also being in a humid climate like Singapore, has caused my skin to be peppered with blackheads and tiny clogged pores. To solve this problem, I have searched high and low for a suitable product that would provide oil control and not dry out my skin at the same time. I came across the COSRX blackhead power liquid, which is a chemical exfoliator.

[REVIEW] CLIO Dermatory Hypoallergenic Sun Fluid Tinted SPF50+ PA++++

CLIO Dermatory Hypoallergenic Sun Fluid Tinted Review

CLIO Dermatory Hypoallergenic Sun Fluid Tinted Review:

After trying Dermatory’s hypoallergenic emollient (emulsion) I became curious about their other products and when I saw that they had released two new sunscreens with mineral filters I decided to try the tinted out one. As I’ve probably mentioned many times before (oops hehe) I usually prefer mineral filters because the chemical ones make my skin sting/burn and often they somehow seem really oily to me.

Naturally, the problem with mineral ones are that they are so white and make people look like ghosts. Helpfully, Dermatory released two mineral sunscreens – a tinted one and a non-tinted one. Since I haven’t tried a tinted sunscreen before I decided to try the tinted version, I also noticed the ingredient lists are slightly different, with the tinted one having the titanium dioxide slightly higher than the non-tinted one.

Of course, I was worried that the tinted one might be way too dark for me or look odd but I figured it wouldn’t look worse than any bb cream that was too dark for me. Coincidentally, after I ordered this sunscreen I realised it also contained “Thanakha” which is a plant extract from Myanmar used as a sunscreen, it was also in the Secret Key sunscreen I reviewed. I guess Thanakha is an ingredient which is now gaining attention in Korea? Although I don’t think there is much scientific research into it, but it’s still an interesting ingredient to have in the sunscreen.

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review:

Admittedly, I always tend to stray away from most hyped up things in fear of being disappointed and/or underwhelmed. Hence, the main reason why I’m only now offering up a review for one of The Ordinary’s various skincare products; this in particular being a destashed item from my friend as she found it to not work for her (allergic reactions, irritation, etc). Thinking that it’d be worth a try considering my penchant for anything targeting pigmentation issues (arbutin is a well-known skin brightening agent!), I decided to put it to the test. Would the YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) rule ring true?
