Review: Flawless Pore Pact & Shading Presso (Son & Park)

Son & Park Flawless Pore Pact Shading Presso BB Cosmetic Kbeauty

I had these photos and this post drafted for so long that I was beginning to forget that I hadn’t written the review yet! These are two products that I recently received from BB Cosmetic to review and I have been using them almost daily. Some people may know that I’ve tried out a few Son & Park products in the past and they have generally always left a good impression on me, so I had pretty high hopes for these products.

The first product that I chose was the Flawless Pore Pact, which is a pressed translucent powder, as I’ve been wanting to try a few more of these products. I’ve also been looking for something that would be easy to carry around for touch ups. The second product that I checked out is the Shading Presso, which is a three toned pressed contour palette – and I was pretty keen to try this out as I recently started to hit pan on my favourite Artclass by Rodin Shading and I wanted to try some new ones before I repurchased anything.

I’ve been testing out these products for quite a while so read on for my full review and, if you’d like to get your hands on them yourself, you can go to BB Cosmetic – and don’t forget to use my code for 8% off. I don’t make any money from it, but you do save a bit, which is always nice: QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Review: Milky Piggy Water Lock Hydrogel Melting Mask (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Kbeauty Review Kangsi Pack EGF Retinol Cream Masks

I’ve been trying to get more active on my blog again but it’s proving more difficult than it should be because of work. I have also been having some trouble with my health that I haven’t been talking about much, but I am taking care of myself and trying to get back to my full spirits. Hopefully, things get a little bit easier but – in the mean time – you can keep following me on Instagram and also check out my Youtube Channel! For now though, let’s jump right into a review. As with most of my sheet mask reviews, I’m going to keep it fairly short and sweet.

This is the Milky Piggy Water Lock Hydrogel Melting Mask that I recieved from Elizavecca to review. They had actually sent me a package of things to test but it’s been taking me a while to get through them. However, everything I have tested so far has been great and I actually really enjoyed this mask! This is (as you can tell) a hydrogel mask, meaning that it doesn’t use a cotton sheet but rather a gel material that is cooling, clings well to the skin and actually helps to hydrate better. These masks are usually considered a premium product and cost more than your normal sheets, but I love them a lot and I tend to save them for special days.

The packaging has a super cute pig illustration and, as usual, I had to take the time out the admire it. The milkypiggy has on a clear hydrogel mask too and I love the colours. It has a quirky look to it that would make it a fun gift – or just to collect yourself. Overall, the packaging design is quite normal, but it’s cute!

On the Elizavecca website, you can buy this as a pack of five for 38,000 won or – if you are after an english website – they also sell on many other online stores and platforms too.

Haul: Miniso Australia

I’m so sorry for my general absence on everything except for Instagram lately – work has been dragging me through life! That being said, I did take the time to post a haul video on the fun products that Miniso Australia gifted me to review – check below for the haul video. There is also a make up tutorial for my look in the video, using all of these products (all of which you can get for under $8) – that will be coming up in the next week or two, depending on when I get an entire day to myself to edit.

Check it out and remember to subscribe, comment, like – all of the good stuff!

Review: Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence (Missha)

Missha The First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist StyleKorean Review

I can’t figure out why this photo looks blurry… someone please halp.

When it comes to skincare products, I like to take my time with writing the review. After all, you can never knew the effects of something after only a few uses and it’s good to try things in different conditions too. The weather has been getting really cold in Sydney lately and, because of it, I am in at middle period where I am deciding the best way to change up my skincare routine. My skin has been fairly uneven, with some very dry areas and my T-zone still becoming oily by late midday, so I did change up my routine a few times while trying out this product.

This is a cult beauty item from MISSHA, Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence. My aunt actually uses bottles of this almost religiously and I know a lot of beauty bloggers swear by it as a much more affordable dupe of SKII, which effects that as just as good – so I’ve been looking to trying this out for a long time. This product is used at the beginning of your skincare routine – it helps to cleanse, hydrate and prep your skin for the absorption of other products, so you can see why it is such an important step. It claims to also restore, rejuvenate and give you a glowing complexion.

As it is similar to a toner, I was actually very confused about this at first but I have since learned (I think) that the FTE is to be used after a toner, and is actually a different product. It is a unique step in the Asian skincare routine and is usually fermented with an active yeast ferment ingredient (read from here). Some people do use a FTE instead of a toner though and, for this, I recommend to trust your own judgement and how your skin feels after cleansing.

I got this product sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. You can get yours on their website for USD$36.03, a discounted price from USD$42.39, and a significantly lower price than the SKII essence that this is the dupe for. The Intensive Moist version of this, which is the one I am reviewing, is also the new, upgraded version of this product for enhanced hydration purposes.

Review: Kangsi Pack (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Kbeauty Review Kangsi Pack EGF Retinol Cream Masks

I am finally writing this review! I’ve started a lot of posts and have had to stop lately because I’ve been so inundated with work and it’s really stressing me out mentally and physically. I’m working five days a week, which is pretty standard for most people, but trying to also add in blogging, daily social media updates (which is, yes, a necessity), as well as photoshoots and trying to get back into music… it can really drain a girl down. That being said, I do have a lot of content planned and the photography is done to be shared and posted – so hopefully I can keep the ball rolling.

I’m going to try and keep my posts a little more concise starting from now – especially the reviews. This is mostly because i’m not convinced that people like to read about me rambling on and because short points are probably easier to help people draw their conclusions. Please let me know in the comments below if you prefer shorter, more frequent posts or more lengthy, less frequent posts?

And back on track! Today, I’ll be giving you my thoughts on the Kangsi Pack from Elizavecca. They recently sent me a second package of different masks and goodies to test out for you guys and, so far, I’m really happy with their products. You can read my glowing review of their retinol cream here (no pun intended) and I have a few more sheet masks to review as well. The below product is one of their really popular wash off mask packs, which contains 24K gold and looks like a glittering dream. That is, until it dries.

Review: ColorRulez Tint & Gloss (16Brand)

16Brand Chosungah22 Colorrulez Lipgloss Stylekorean Review

I first saw this lip tint/gloss from 16Brand on Instagram (shout out to my friend mabub.sonyeo for sending me a photo of her one and showing me how the colour mixed), and I was ridiculously keen to get my hands on it. I’ve always been a fan of 16Brand products because of their super cute packaging and concepts, although the formulations of their fingerpens turned out to be a hit or miss for me. Either way, I was really keen to try out this lip product because of the packaging (lets not lie) and the fact that the swatches really do look great online!

These lip tints are layers with three different colours to create a beautiful colour on your lips that you can (hypothetically) darken by redipping into the top layer and reapplying – though this seems a little excess. This tint gloss also contains hydrolyzed collagen which, to be honest, I’m not sure if it makes a cosmetic difference but it’s good to know.

StyleKorean sent me a few of these lip tint glosses to try out and I’ve been testing them out for a while – finally ready to write about it! Read on for my thoughts!

Brand Spotlight: Bio Oil

Bio Oil Review Australia Beauty Blogger

There are some skincare products that are so effective and so simple that they become essentials in our day-to-day life: Bio Oil is very easily one of them. I used this magical oil back in my college years, after having read online about it’s benefits of healing scars (and stretch marks, but those were a happy discovery later on). I talked on Instagram about my previous experiences with this product but also stated that I didn’t want to go into personal details here on my blog, as I do believe in keeping this a happy space and letting the past be bygone, so I hope you’ll forgive me for not being too explicit! Regardless, I will do my best to discuss with you my experiences and opinions on this great product.

I was approached to do a brand spotlight write up about Bio Oil and I was really happy to do this, since this is something that I’ve used for quite a while and really believe in. I have also gotten my sister and her family onto using this oil for various needs too, so you can definitely believe that I’m not just writing this because I can.

So this product claims to improve the appearance of scarring, stretch marks and uneven skintone. It has won 27 skincare awards and has become the number one selling scar and stretch mark product in eleven countries since it was launched globally in 2002. I have personally never used it as regular skincare (such as for skin tone, anti-aging etc) so I can’t vouch for those properties, but I can say that this product was great for minimising scarring and in helping to lighten stretch marks.

All of what I write has to do with my personal experience with the product, but I have noticed online that there have been some mixed reviews and concerns. Some, such as myself, saw great results from using the product while others question many of the ingredients included in it. I have put in an external link at the end of the post for people who want to look into that.

Review: Red Concealer (Medicube)

Oh My Stellar Kbeauty Review Medicube Red Concealer Early Picker Review

I honestly thought that I had already posted this review (especially since I’d been using this concealer so much) so I was surprised to find this still in my drafts! This is the Red Concealer by Medicube, which has been really popular online along with the Red Cushion (you can also check out my review of that) which went absolutely viral with their video. As per the rest of their line, these products – skincare and cosmetic – are targeted for sensitive and acne prone skin. They are non-comedogenic, so they will not clog pores, and they also boast a super high coverage that will help you cover up any of your insecurities so you are free to be your beautiful self.

Writing this review, I just want to take the chance to remind everyone that there is nothing wrong with acne, acne scarring or just having sensitive skin in general – it’s a part of life and, whether it is hormonal or you just genetically have more acne prone skin, it’s just a part of you and no one should have to feel that they need to cover up or hide themselves. Unfortunately though, I’m absolutely aware that it can make you feel very insecure and uncomfortable – because I had the same experiences in high school – so I’m personally really glad that companies like Medicube are focusing their attention on products that are not only effective, but also protective of our skin when it is in its more vulnerable state.

So I recieved this product to review from Earlypicker and I tested it together with the Red Cushion, as well as alone, and I actually like this concealer more than the cushion – although I didn’t dislike it either. I think that the coverage of this product is really great and it also wears well through the day too. If you’re interested in getting this product, or anything else from Medicube, check out the entire range available on their store!

Now, onto the review.

Review: Milky Piggy EGF Elastic Retinol Cream (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Kbeauty Review Kangsi Pack EGF Retinol Cream Masks

A few weeks ago, Elizavecca sent me another package of goodies to try out and review for the blog – and I was pretty crazily ecstatic. One of the products that I was most excited to try out – but also the most nervous about – but this EGF Elastic Retinol Cream. It cleans to be a product used by entertainers (specifically actresses) to achieve their flawless skin complexion. Now, I’m not sure if I believe that these famous kdrama actresses are actually using Elizavecca, but the idea that they’re using a retinol cream for this is actually not much of a stretch.

Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A (also called a retinoid) and is primarily used for wrinkle care and anti-aging to give a more youthful complexion – it has been used in skin care since the 70’s, so it isn’t a new discovery at all. This is an ingredient that is actually backed by dermatologists and you can get both over-the-counter and prescription retinoids (which will be pure retinoid) to used. Retinoids increase cell turnover, so that it is helping to get rid of old and damaged cells. It also thins the top layer of skin while thickening the smoother, second layer to make the skin look more luminous and firm. It also helps to boost collagen production and prevent its break down when it is penetrating deeper into the skin, as well as clearing pores and decreasing oil production (as stated by Real Simple). All in all, retinoids really sound like a magic product!

In addition to this magic, star ingredient, this cream also contains CF-Nest Extract of 80% (which is a very popular product for Asian beauty, helping with moisture balance) and EGF (which is suitable for dry weather and helps to strengthen skin nutrition). Unfortunately, I can’t find information on the % of the retinol ingredient in this, but I jumped right in anyway!

Before trying out this product though, please read all instructions – or at least finish up this review – because retinol is a product that you have to slowly progress your skin into. It’s not okay to just slather your face with it because you will likely not get good results.
