PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream Review

PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream Review:

PURITO might not be a newcomer in the Korean skincare industry, and its motto to be a safe product somehow enhances people’s curiosity toward them. Note well that the brand PURITO comes from ‘purify’ (to purify natural ingredients to create safe and clean products) and ‘to’ (to go back to basic in order to strengthen and repair collapsed skin barriers). The brand itself had been quite popular since 2018, but I didn’t feel any desires to try it due to some personal preferences.

However, I was quite intrigued to try PURITO products due to its popularity as well as my concern to use products which main ingredient is anything but water. My first experience with PURITO was its Snail Repair Advanced Serum which I bought only a month before I unexpectedly ran out of my daily moisturizer too.

There were two options I considered; PURITO Deep Sea Water Cream and PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream. No particular reason why I choose PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream, so I still contemplate to buy the other one after this product ran out. I sincerely hoped this one wouldn’t be a flash in the pan, or else I wouldn’t try any PURITO products again considering my experience with PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum.

PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum Review

PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum Review:

PURITO brand has been quite a hype nowadays, isn’t it? It proclaims the products to be nature-friendly and safe, as well as the concepts. I’ve been contemplating to try some products of PURITO’s since both my moisturizer and morning serum were running out, but finally decided to buy PURITO serum first since my previous ELIZAVECCA CF-Nest 97% B-jo Serum diminished faster than I thought.

Besides PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum, I also considered PURITO Hyaluronic Acid Serum and PURITO Green Level Buffet Serum. This one finally prevailed because (1) its main ingredient is Snail Secretion Filtrate instead of water (like in PURITO Green Level Buffet Serum); and (2) its concern toward repairment which I really need while battling with pollution.

[REVIEW] 2019 NEW COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner Review

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When Nigama contacted me to do a sponsored review and offered COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner, I was very interested seeing this product’s advertisement. First, I had no experience trying COSRX products before (yes I know I was outdated for not joining the hype); and second, COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner hadn’t been sold in my country yet. Aaanndd, it has such fascinating ingredients list I expect quite a lot! After rambling around the product details on the internet (which was very very rare), I found out that COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner was a product of COSRX x SYDNEY collaboration. That SYDNEY name didn’t ring a bell to me, but it might sound familiar for some of you.

To be honest, my previous SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner hadn’t ran out yet, but on the bright side, I could do the exact comparison between COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner and it. A little flashback, I had to remind how satisfied I was with the latter and I’m quite curious to see whether COSRX could beat the SOME BY MI result. So, in order to make it more evident, I decided to use them parallel to both sides of my face.

[REVIEW] Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream

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

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.

[REVIEW] SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream

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.

[REVIEW] A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel

A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel Review

A’PIEU Madecassoside Cica Gel Review:

As I constantly struggle with hormonal cystic acne, I try not to use heavy creams that are oil based, especially in the summer time. Now that it’s getting warmer in Canada, I am starting to breakout more. I was eagerly looking for a gel cream to not only hydrate but heal my skin, and I came across the A’pieu Madecassoside Cica Gel.

A’pieu is really famous for their Madecassoside line. They have a massive skincare range from toners and ampoules to creams and cleansing foams. I am an avid user of the Madecassoside sun cream and I absolutely adore it, but I’ll save that for another review.

The gel comes in a tub and a tube that are both 50ml. I chose the tube version for sanitary purposes as I don’t like the idea of dipping my fingers in.

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review

BLACKROUGE Cica Green Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I was always on the hunt for a good physical sunscreen, until now. It’s difficult to find one that doesn’t give a white cast and applies smoothly. Sadly, there isn’t a lot of options especially in the Korean beauty industry.

The ones I have tried in the American beauty industry either has too much white cast, is very thick, and is too expensive. While I was scrolling and doing my research on sunscreen, I came across this product. It is known to have Centella Asiatica and is physical sunscreen. So, I thought it would be a good candidate to try!

The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask Review

The Saem Natural Daily Original Rose Mask Review:

I’ll admit that I’ve been totally obsessed with wash off masks this year! And strangely, I’ve been wanting to try floral and rose related ones, because they just sound good? Earlier in the year, I was looking for a new wash off mask and I came across this one. There weren’t many reviews about it, but the fact that it said “daily” and also “moisturizing” made me want it. After all I want a wash off mask that can be used daily, and is also easy to wash off. Of course, it needs to be moisturizing as well!

You can say it was a purchase without any research or planning (I always seem to do this, oops!). I was simply looking for a basic wash off mask that I could use every day. One that wouldn’t cost a lot, or one that wouldn’t be too hard to wash off. Plus when I looked up the mask ingredients, it seemed to have so few ingredients which was another reason I decided to buy it. Read on to see if I regret my latest purchase, or if in the end I liked it.
