Blog about Korean cosmetics, reviews and articles
The calendar summer is coming to an end, which can’t be said about our real summer. But it’s time to gather products to fight pigmentation. For this purpose, I will go over my last winter and my experiences in that matter. So, winter came and brought with her the cold and the heating units. The main problem became overdried combination skin, suffering from dehydration. After 4 months of symbiosis with certain products, I had to completely re-think my multistep skin care. (more…)
NOT4U Real Skin Patch is a liquid patch for inflammation care and a film makeup base for troubled skin.
Legends about this product by a Korean brand with a weird name NOT4U are circulating the web. Only very lazy video bloggers still haven’t made a video about it. And while American beauty gurus prance around the skin, entertaining the masses taking off “second skin” and collect millions of likes and “Eeew!” comments, Korean women have quietly and humbly made it into one of their favorite makeup bag products. And you and I will calmly figure out what it is, like adults. (more…)
Playing house or experimenting on the kid.
And so my and the kid’s experiment has concluded. The main goal for the mom was to “cover up with the concealer” the fact that she didn’t teach her own offspring how to take proper care of the face. For the kid the goal was to receive a whole set of skincare products, which is also occasionally restocked with new items.
For one month, Alisa used the regimen of multi-step Korean skincare that I had selected for her. (more…)
I have a favorite peeling gel from Korean brand The Face Shop with papaya enzymes. Smart Peeling Milk Papaya Peeling cleanses the skin very gently, without causing any irritation or bad reactions. It smells very nice. A fruity fresh scent with a sour note. (more…)
I finished off two of my Japanese serums – with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid – and immediately found a replacement, several times cheaper, but with no sacrifices in quality.
I have tested samples of these serums a long time ago and was so pleased that I decided to buy the full sizes. (more…)
There’s a time and place for everything. The time to cleanse and remove makeup, and the time to transform.
Today is a story about eyebrow pencil, lash lengthener and mascara. A very easy and natural makeup. It’s as if it weren’t there, and yet it’s there. (more…)
I’m currently using three products with BHA from Korean manufacturers. I thought that’s not a bad reason to talk about this wonderful ingredient.
So, what is it? It’s an acid (surprise surprise) which can reach deep into the pores and regulate sebum production. (more…)
And then I realized that I’m a maniac 🙂
I’ve been planning to post about my morning and evening routines for a long time.
I hope that my attempt to systematize all of my korean tricks will be successful and I’ll piece this puzzle together 🙂 (more…)
These are patented nasolabial patches from the famous Korean brand Dr.Jart+.
I’ve heard good quality praising reviews about this brand’s patches for a long time, but haven’t used them until recently.
Too bad. This is the second type of nasolabial patches (out of a huge variety) that work well for my skin. I’ll post a separate review about the first type.
This line has lifting patches for:
– Double chin
– Nasolabial folds
This line also has blackhead removal patches. (more…)
Skin Republic is a Korean brand that is already well known in European countries. I buy their sheet masks at a pharmacy in the middle of nowhere in Finland. Ok, it’s not Europe, but not exactly Asia either.
Skin Republic combines the latest technological advances in the skincare field with natural regenerating ingredients. It provides great sheet masks for face, eyes, neck and decolletage, and also hands and feet. (more…)
