Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream Review

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream Review:

Have you ever used a product for the first time and thought, “Yup, this is the one.”? As a beauty enthusiast, I always want to try new things so I don’t typically stick to using the same products over and over again (even if they worked well for my skin). And it doesn’t help that there is seemingly an infinite number of newer and better products to try out there.

But once in a while, you fall in love with a product so much that the fear of missing out on newer products suddenly disappears. That’s what I happened when I first used this Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate.

Why? I’ll tell you the reasons in a bit but for now let’s learn more about the brand and some details about the product.
I’ve been seeing products from Illiyoon every now and again but they didn’t really catch my attention enough to buy them. Perhaps that can be attributed to their boring packaging (there are just so many adorable or chic looking products out there!).

Anyway, it was when I saw Kelly Driscoll’s youtube videos where she discussed how much she loves this cream that I decided to try it out for myself. Fortunately, I saw a smaller size on sale in shopee. I got mine for only $2 for a 70ml tube which is such a steal!

According to what I’ve read, Illiyoon is a part of Amore Pacific which is one of the biggest beauty companies in Korea (also owns Mamonde, Laneige, Innisfree, etc). The brand aims to deliver gentle but deeply nourishing products perfect for those which sensitive skin types. In fact, their products can also be used for babies. Since I have a one year old baby, this is a plus point for me.

Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner Review:

These days, Isntree has been booming in the Asian Beauty community with their simple no-frills skincare products. They first garnered popularity with their famous Hyaluronic acid toner which I also thoroughly enjoyed, resulting in me falling in love with the brand.

Isntree’s Green Tea Fresh Toner on the other hand, appealed to me due to it being a light watery toner which I find more ideal for daytime use for combo or oily-skinned folks, especially those living in countries with high humidity all year long.

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review:

Beauty trends may revolve and changes every now and then, including the star ingredients in beauty products. There were times when almost all brands suddenly developed products with snail mucin, aloe vera, galactomyces, etc. Looking back in 2018, I think centella asiatica is the star ingredient! So many beauty brands invented new products with centella asiatica in their formulation and it became one of the selling points. No wonder, centella asiatica (also known as tiger grass or ‘pegagan’) has been famous for generations as medication that soothes skin damages, hydrates, and reduces uneven skin tones.

With all the hype marketing, of course I fell into Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream when it was launched! I couldn’t find many reviews on this moisturizer because Skin1004 is more famous for its Madagascar Cenetella Asiatica ampoule and whenever I Googled, reviews for the ampoule popped up. From the few reviews I found, they said Skin1004 Cream is lightweight and non-sticky, so as a normal-to-oily skin bearer, I chose to go with it. A week later, Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream arrived to my house.

Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I thought this product would be a nice replacement for my Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence in the sense that it provides gentle correction to even out the complexion, so I can save time by skipping CC cream. I have heard people raving about the original Tone Up Essence in lavender purple hue. So when Rohto released the mint green version this summer for redness-prone skin, I decided to give it a try to justify the hype.

CLIO Big Aurora Glowing Cushion 02 Lingerie Review:

I’m not a cushion-person so I rarely use cushion foundation for my daily makeup because I find most of cushions don’t last on my oily-combination skin. I do have several cushions that I really love but it is very hard to find one that won’t make my skin looks like a mess.

I notice that usually cushion with skincare suit me the most then CLIO released their new cushion called Big Aurora Glowing Cushion and I can’t help but want to try it so bad since their claim is too good to pass on. CLIO describes it as a cushion that fills wrinkle and pores, makes voluminous skin, and contain Peptide Volume Essence in it. I’m not sure what is Peptide Volume Essence but as long as it has essence in it, then I need to try it.

For the shade range, it’s quite disappointing because they only has 3 shades to choose from. Usually CLIO has more than 3 shades so I’m not sure why they decided to only make this cushion in 3 shades only. There’s almost no deep and fair shade as the lightest shade is a tad darker than my skin tone and the deepest shade is not dark enough for deep skin tone.

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!

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.

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.
