[REVIEW] FROM NATURE Bio System Cleansing Water

From Nature Bio System Cleansing Water Review

From Nature Bio System Cleansing Water Review:

FROM NATURE is a Korean skincare brands that manufacture products with life force of nature using natural plant ingredients. They emphasize to provide nutrition and moisture to skin and healthy beauty found in nature as well as nutrition, energy, and vitality of nature. It is manufactured under Daehwa C&F Co., Ltd that’s specialized in cosmetic distribution

To my ears, FROM NATURE is not that familiar. I’ve never come through this brand before until one day, I saw an online shop sold various products from FROM NATURE that consisted of cleansing water, cleansing oil, first essence, cream, eye cream, and so on. After rambling around Google, I found that the From Nature first essence was quite popular and the effect was almost as good as the popular Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence. The first essence caught my attention at first, but realizing that what I needed at that time was a cleansing product, I decided to click the ‘buy’ button on FROM NATURE Bio System Cleansing Water page.

[REVIEW] iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil

iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil Review

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] 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.

[REVIEW] VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige

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!

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.

[REVIEW] HEIMISH All Clean Green Foam pH 5.5

HEIMISH All Clean Green Foam pH 5.5 Review

HEIMISH All Clean Green Foam pH 5.5 Review:

I personally prefer a cleansing product that has minimal chemical components, but of course with pocket-friendly price. Finding a cleansing foam that meets this requirement is quite problematic, since an affordable one tends to be a bit harsh for skin due to its all-chemical ingredients.

Then I found this HEIMISH pH 5.5 All Clean Green Foam, whose sheet mask (HEIMISH Low pH Hydrating Mask Sheet) I tried before and fell in love with. I assume this product is still newly launched since there are only few sellers sell this. Since the mask sheet was a holy grail to me and the price was quite decent too, I dared myself to have a go.

[REVIEW] Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Review

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Review:

Having a combination skin wasn’t really a worry for me when choosing for the best cream/ moisturizer, however, I have a combination PLUS sensitive skin so the latter part was pretty much the problem. I have heard tons of positive reviews (including celebrities) about the brand Kiehl’s, especially about this Ultra Facial Cream. When I had the chance to do some last minute shopping in Hawaii before heading back to our island, I didn’t hesitate to grab 2 of these and wondered if this would be a permanent for me.
