Cosrx Aha/Bha Clarifying Treatment Toner Review

  On one of my skincare research days, I read about how one could get better results while using actives like AHA, BHA, etc if clarifying toners are used first. Due to my experience with the Cosrx snail cream and Cosrx BHA power liquid, I decided to try the Cosrx Aha/Bha clarifying treatment toner.   Furthermore, I read in another article that it’s best to use vitamin c on bare skin after cleansing before using any other product because of its highly unstable nature. If you remember I use Ost vitamin C serum, the only active I currently use. I wasn’t …

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask Review

  Elizavecca milky piggy carbonated bubble clay mask is one mask I’ve known since i started my Korean skincare journey in 2014 but just never tried it till now. I read about the bubble effect on the face from other Korean skincare and beauty bloggers and only wondered what they meant.   I decided to skip my holy grail mask again after testing the skinfood rice mask to try the Elizavecca milky piggy carbonated bubble clay mask as they were same sale price. The name is so funny as with other ridiculous Korean beauty product names. Who names a product milky piggy carbonated bubble …

Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream Review

  I used the Cosrx advanced snail 92 all in one cream for the first time at the end of spring 2016. The weather was just getting warmer then and i needed a lightweight moisturizer for my combination skin. After the success of my Cosrx ultimate nourishing rice overnight spa mask and my experience with snail filtrate starting from my Benton snail bee high content essence, i knew my skin loved snails. Since i was already in love with Cosrx and looking for a suitable day moisturizer, i decided to try their advanced snail 92 all in one cream.   This snail …

Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch Review

  I thought of posting this Cosrx acne pimple master patch review earlier and somehow forgot about it. Have you ever used a patch on your pimples before? Me neither….till i discovered the Cosrx acne pimple patches. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a pimple patch. Over the years I struggled with keeping my acne under control. This wouldn’t be new to you if you are a regular reader of my blog. Acne is most likely the top skin concern of many young people.   If you’ve ever had an event you’ve been looking forward to, only to …

OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum Review

  If you haven’t heard about Vitamin C serums or benefits of Vitamin C on skin, then you must be living under a rock. One of the most popular vitamin C serums for face is the OST original pure vitamin C20 serum. It’s more popular among Korean skincare users as it’s one of the most popular and widely used vitamin C serums.   There are a lot of vitamin C serums for face made by other brands besides the Korean versions. Some popular ones non-Korean skincare enthusiasts use are Paula’s Choice Resist C15 Super Booster, Kiehl’s powerful-strength line-reducing concentrate, Algenist genuis ultimate …

Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid Review

  The Cosrx BHA blackhead power liquid was part of my updated 2016 Korean skincare products. I read so many reviews about this korean blackhead product but because some of them were mixed, i decided to try it out myself. I don’t suffer from noticeable blackheads but i wanted other effects of BHA.   Cosrx is one Korean skincare brand i noticed out of the blues. As at the time i started this Korean skincare journey, i never saw or heard about any cosrx product. Fast-forward to 2016, Cosrx is on every Korean beauty enthusiast’s lips and even available on Urban Outfitters and …

Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask Review

  This cosrx ultimate nourishing rice overnight spa mask from my 2016 updated face care routine is currently the best Korean sleeping mask I’ve used in the 2 years that I’ve been using Korean skincare products (I haven’t used a lot of sleeping masks though, just about 5). It’s the first sleeping mask I’ll be reviewing on the blog because of how much i like using it.  The previous ones I used weren’t completely bad, they just weren’t a fit for my skin that’s all. They were either too light or they were only moisturizing enough for just a few hours …

Missha Near Skin Smart All In One Cream Review

  This Missha near skin smart all in one cream review is the first facial cream review I’ve done on the blog so far. The reason for this is because i haven’t been lucky with facial creams. They’re all usually just “Ok”, break me out or not moisturizing enough. There’s always something missing, forcing me to continue my search.   If you remember, this Missha near skin all in one cream was one of the items in my recently updated skincare routine for oily skin. I chose it after reading from different sources that gel and aqua-based creams were best for oily …

Skinfood Rice Mask Wash Off Review

  This Skinfood rice mask review feels a bit premature but I think 3 weeks is enough to review it properly after casually mentioning it in my first impressions post. I’ve been using it twice a week since then and the effect i initially noticed has been the same so i’ll be sharing what i think so far. Read: my first rice skincare product.    Before continuing this skinfood rice mask review, i’ll like to point out a few facts and uses of rice on skin, in case you didn’t know that there was more to rice than eating it (hello #jollofrice lovers!). …

First Impressions: New In Korean Skincare Products For Oily Skin

  These Korean skincare products for oily skin are the latest products I’ve added to my routine since this updated routine post. While i was sick and undergoing treatments few months ago, i had a bad reaction to some of the drugs i was prescribed and my face that i worked so hard to clear up these past 2 years was filled with spots and rashes all over again.   I had to stick to baby shower gel and baby lotion for the duration of my treatments to avoid irritating my skin further. Luckily, the mighty rashes cleared up within a month …
