I ordered a spot treatment cream hoping to lighten pigmentation spots, but sadly couldn’t use it.
The manufacturer promised that the cream will lighten troubled areas (pigmentation spots, post acne marks, etc), give the skin a healthy glow and even out the skin tone. Another selling point was that the cream could be used not only as a spot treatment but also as an eye cream and as a normal face cream. (more…)
Our summer is here and despite tons of sunscreen, my freckles are coming and coming 🙂 I stashed retinol and acids into the far corner of the cabinet and got out this whitening essence by Korean brand Ciracle. The essence is based on whitening mediterranean seaweed extracts. It will make the skin glow, get rid of dull coloring and will provide intense hydration. A so called safe alternative to cosmetics with synthetic whitening components. (more…)
One time I decided that I haven’t had a minty mask in a white and got puzzled. At one point I had a mint mask, I can’t remember the brand anymore, but I remember that the mask left an amazing feeling of freshness so the hamster and I went searching. (more…)
A review about Korean modeling mask with snail mucin and spirulina SHANGPREE Premium Modeling Mask. Shangpree – a Korean brand with a very interesting history and goals. Now considered a luxury brand, Shangpree started with a tiny spa-room in Seoul in 1990. Now it’s the most famous (and one of the most expensive) beauty salons in Seoul, which is constantly visited by stars and celebrities. Every cosmetologist who comes to work in Shangpree, even with 20 years of experience, has to go through three years of training before he/she is allowed to work with clients. […]
I’ve been getting ready to write this review for awhile, and have promised myself to do that many times, but it was hard to get my thoughts together and make it maximally useful and not too long.
Today we will compare two similar tubes, one of which is basically out. (more…)
This comparative review of Korean vitamin C serums has been brewing for some time. To the point that everything in the pictures is a repeat purchase except for the It’s Skin serum. A bit about myself: combination, sensitive skin prone to breakouts and pigmentation. Light coperouse veins on the nostrils. (more…)
I’ve been wanting to write a comparative review of these two products that became irreplaceable in my daily skincare routine. So, let’s talk about powdered spot treatments. These products are multifunctional. They can be used as a spot treatment or mixed into serums, creams, and masks. (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…)
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…)
