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…)
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…)
It all started with a sample, as usual. Curse the samples!
￼Before that, bb creams were just another mystery to me. I haven’t used foundation in years – I didn’t like the stuff I tried as a teenager, and by the time my teenage breakouts cleared, powder was sufficient. But, as the saying goes, there is no limit to perfection. (more…)
I am 28, have combination skin, freckles, and one forehead wrinkle (yes, one).
I bought this cleanser for two important reasons – a pretty packaging and a good discount on eopenmarket.com (but their shipping isn’t free). You can buy this on eBay or Amazon.
I must have been craving summer and watermelons. (more…)
Today, let’s talk about hydration. The subject is, of course, very broad, but we will not ramble on.
Let’s start with the fact that water enters skin from within. Because the skin is well protected by its outer layer and lipid barrier, it is quite difficult to penetrate it with moisture from the outside. Our skin loses moisture under the effects of the environment.
In a healthy, young person, up to ⅓ of the epidermis is made up of water. This level of hydration results in great appearance of skin, quick healing of any injuries, and absence of hypersensitivity. (more…)
So, Korean tricksters, did you think that the summer is ending so it’s time to put away all the sunscreen tubes until next summer?
First of all, there are ladies who live in the countries where winter is as far as the Chinese border.
Second of all, fall and winter are important seasons for skin rejuvenation. Because RETINOL. And without sun protection, we will all look like a herd of cute and smooth, but very spotted giraffes. (more…)
I have a combination skin with oily t-zone, which loves to shine by lunchtime. My nose could get so dry that it flakes, or shine like an oily skillet. I’m (almost) 28, have freckles, and very fair skin. Naturally, I have pores, but without any big issues.
Recently I have started to experiment with tubed and cushioned BB creams, and they pretty much require a primer, otherwise they fall into the pores.
Ladies, this cream by Korean brand Innisfree is a real miracle. (more…)
I don’t like the saying comparing women to berries. Let’s imagine how quickly berries wilt and shrivel. But the ginseng root doesn’t shrivel. It doesn’t really change much, maintaining its healing properties.
Especially if the ginseng is fermented, with gold and a whole “army” of skin-rejuvenating components. (more…)
In this article I will attempt to tell you about the most popular lines by The Saem brand.
The company was founded in 2010. Initially, the products were known only in the domestic Korean market, but they slowly gained recognition and trust around the world. The full name of the brand – Saem of Wise and Beauty – the Source of Wisdom and Beauty. (more…)
