Review: Artemisia Treatment Essence Mist & Calming Point Masks (Missha)

Time Revolution Artemisia Collection Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

The Missha Time Revolution range is easily one of their cult favourites – in fact, their original First Treatment Essence has been much raved about as an affordable alternative to the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (and honestly, I don’t know what higher compliment a brand could possibly receive). Since then, they have also released their Artemisia Treatment Essence. Both of these branch away from the FTE formula to prove that Missha’s skincare stands strong, not just as a ‘high end dupe’ but as an original product.

The two products that I’ll be reviewing today are part of the Artemesia line – the Artemisia Treatment Essence (Mist Type) and the Calming Point Masks.

If you’re keen to shop these, head on over to StyleKorean where you can shop the entire Artemisia collection, including:

Review: nomakenolife (Japanese & Korean Beauty Box)

NMNL No Make No Life Beauty Subscription Box January Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

If you’ve followed me for a while, you might have noticed that I don’t review subscriptions boxes very often – it’s really just because I have a lot of products so find it hard to review. However, one box that has had my attention for literally years is the nomakenolife (or NMNL) box – they launched back in 2016 with a focus on super cute Korean and Japanese beauty products.

I was in particular interested in Japanese products- I adore J-Beauty but find it really hard to purchase overseas, and even harder to actually find out what I’m buying as there’s very little English information online. Because of this, I find it very helpful to have them selected and sourced for me to try out. The team from NMNL is actually Tokyo based too, so they’ve got their thumb on the latest trends and best selling products.

They also have special perks for subscribers – you gain points for every consecutive month that you’re signed up and can exchange them for exclusive items, get discounts or even shop on JapanHaul – and there’s some really cute stuff.

If you want to take a peek, head on over to the nomakenolife website. But before you do, let’s jump into this box!

Review: Cica Care Collection (VT Cosmetics)

VT Cosmetics Cica Skincare Line Kbeauty Review StyleKorean - Cica Skin, Cica Cream, Soothing Mask, Sleeping Mask

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

If you’re a fan of Centella Asiatica, then you’ll be very excited about the Cica Care Collection from VT Cosmetics! I was first introduced to the brand via their makeup but it didn’t exactly blow me away. I’ve been looking to give them a second chance though and I’m pleasantly surprised this time! This collection is all about Centella (also known as Cica) – it’s one of my favourite soothing skincare ingredients and I’m always working it into my routine.

The Cica Care Collection is actually quite extensive but I’ll be reviewing four products: the Cica Daily Soothing Mask, Cica Cream, Cica Skin and the VT Cica Sleeping Mask. All of these are available on the StyleKorean website but I would actually recommend checking out the main VT Cosmetics page instead – they are so many other products ranging from masks to sun care.

I’ve been using these products since December last year, so it’s been a decent amount of time now. Let’s get into this review!

Brand Spotlight & Review: Huxley

Huxley StyleKorean Try me Review Me Kbeauty Skincare Review

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

For people that follow me regularly (here or on Instagram), you will know that I do a lot of collaborations with StyleKorean – who are easily one of my favourite kbeauty stores to work with. They do a blogger program called the Try Me Review Me, which lets people trial and review different brands every month. If you’re a beauty lover or content creator, make sure that you’re following them on Instagram, which is where they typically announce these.

As soon as Huxley was announced, I jumped right onto this – I’m just so excited to dive back into their products. They left a great impression on me in the past and, even though it’s been at least a year since I tried something new from them, I was confident that they would do it again.

For this review, I’ll be reviewing the Oil Essence & Sahara Mask Set – this is available on StyleKorean for a limited time! All of the products are also available for purchase individually too but this set is a great gifting option for Christmas.

Jump onto StyleKorean if you’d like to check it out but, before that, let’s get into this review!

Review: Intensive Moist/Firming/Radiance Sauce Modeling Mascream (Neogen SUR.MEDIC+)

Neogen Surmedic Modeling Mascream Skincare Review

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

I’m a big fan of modeling masks and the ones that I’ll be sharing with you today are actually from a brand that is both new and familiar to me! SUR.MEDIC+ is a brand developed by Neogenlab, so you will often see their products listed under the Neogen brand too. They are a “personal skin concierge,” using the concept of skincare first aid to develop products that are effective, easy to use and accessible anywhere. Their products cater to a variety of skin concerns too, so there’s a lot of choose from!

The masks that I will be trying out today are called the Intensive Moist/Firming/Radiance Sauce Modeling Mascream – as you can tell from that awkward name, there are three different variants to target moisture, firming or radiance. I have been gradually testing these out but haven’t used all of them yet, so will put in product information and then add in individual reviews as I go.

These were gifted to me by StyleKorean to review, so pop over there if you want to check them out. They’re under the Neogen brand and are currently on sale for USD$8.80 (usually USD$11).

And now, let’s get into this review!

First Impressions: K-Beauty Haul (Stylevana)

Stylevana KBeauty Review Jigott Real Ampoule Mask, Frudia Blueberry Hydration Mask, Labiotte Wine Lip Tint, Logically Skin Aquatide Resurface Serum, Chica Y Chico One Shot Eye Palette

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that there is an affiliate code advertised.

New products and deliveries are always so exciting for me – so yes, I was super keen when this package from Stylevana arrived. I was starting to feel overwhelmed for a while but since pulling back on my spending and on some PR in the past few months, it’s given me more of a chance to enjoy what I do (and work at my own pace).

This haul is a new collaboration for me! Stylevana is an online store that specialises in Asian beauty – they carry products from Korea, Japan and even Taiwan. The latter two are less talked about because they’re harder to access online, so I’m glad that there’s a new source for them! Aside from the big range of products, Stylevana also offers free shipping for orders over USD$55.

From now until the end of November, you can also get 10-15% off your order with my code INF10STELLAR (excluding weekend deals and instant offers since they are already on sale).

So, read on if you’re keen to see what I received! I’ll be putting my initial thoughts into this post rather that full on reviews (especially for the Logically, Skin Serum) since I think that I’ll need to use that much more extensively to give proper insight. Here goes!

Review: Neogen

Neogen StyleKorean Try me Review Me Kbeauty Skincare

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

When it comes to Korean skincare, I definitely think that Neogen is one of the top household names. The company has a number of brands under their umbrella but Neogen Dermalogy seems to be the main one that’s attributed to them. They consider themselves a “beauty innovator with the latest dermaceutical research and innovations,” carrying a number of different lines to cater for various skin concerns.

I would say that they are best known for their Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Pads, which is a product that went absolutely viral a few years ago. I’ve also used their Real Fresh Foam Cleanser quite a few times and often recommend it to people! Overall, my experience with the brand is largely positive, with only a few products that were a pass for me.

For this brand spotlight, I’m going to be highlighting a small selection from their range: the Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser, Real Fresh Cleansing Stick, Real Ferment Micro Essence, Real Ferment Micro Serum and the A-Clear Soothing Spot Patch. Most of these products aren’t absolutely new to me (I’ve usually used something from the range before or tested it out a few years ago) so I had high expectations for everything!

Everything in this review is available at StyleKorean so check them out if you’re looking to get anything from Neogen – they carry a pretty large variety of their products. I would especially recommend the Peeling Pads and the Foam Cleanser, as they are my personal favourites.

So, let’s get into this!

Review: Blithe

Blithe StyleKorean Try me Review Me Kbeauty Skincare

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

It’s been a hot minute since I tried something new from Blithe, but I had such a great experience with their Energy Citrus and Honey Patting Splash Mask that when the opportunity came up – I had to take it. The products in this brand spotlight/review post were sent to me by StyleKorean as part of their Try Me Review Me program – this is a monthly open collaboration where they select a generous handful of beauty content creators to test out specifically curated beauty boxes.

If you’d like to join in next time, make sure to follow their Instagram because that’s where it all gets announced! For now though, let’s chat about what’s in this box.

This is the Blithe Try Me Review Me box and features four of their most popular (and unique) products: there is the Patting Splash Mask in Soothing & Healing Green Tea, Pressed Serum in Tundra Chaga, Inbetween Makeup Prep Essence and the Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans. All of these are actually new to me (though I have used a different Splash mask before) so I think that I’ll need much more extensive testing to write a full review! However, I do want to share my initial thoughts and observations.

If you’d like to pick up any of these, or check out the Blithe line in general, head on over to the StyleKorean website – they’ve got an extensive range! Otherwise, let’s just right into this!

Review: Vitis Vinifera Rejuvenating & Age Revitalizing Face Defence Mask (Enbacci)

Enbacci Sheet Mask Skincare Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

How often do you find yourself sheet masking? A lot of people in Korea use these almost religiously and there was even a trend a while ago of masking multiple times a day. That’s a bit excessive for me (and wouldn’t fit into most people’s daily routines) but I’m working on incorporating these into my evening routine at least every 2-3 days.

Most of the masks that I’ve used in the past have been Korean but this time I’m trying out an Australian brand! This is Enbacci, a skincare brand that launched back in 2013. As of right now their product lines range from face care, body care, even candles and diffusers – my focus today will be on their sheet masks though.

I was given the opportunity to test out the Vitis Vinifera Rejuvenating Mask and the Age Revitalizing Face Defence Mask. I actually had no obligation to be reviewing them on my blog (as I don’t often do so for sheet masks) but I really wanted to write about these!

The prices for both masks slightly differ but start at AUD$20. You can buy them in either single units or a box of five on their official website (free shipping on all orders for Australia or flat rate international shipping) or by visiting their flagship store in Melbourne.

And now – onto this review!

New Release: Fig Collection (I’m From)

I'm From Fig Boosting Essence Cleansing Balm and Scrub Mask Review

When it comes to skincare, using fruit as the key ingredient isn’t anything new – especially within kbeauty. Sometimes it’s more to do with the scent but, most of the time, it has a lot to do with that fruits’ natural chemicals and benefits. A great example, and the most well known, would be with citrus and Vitamin C. In the end, all fruits are different and you can find a plethora of different skin concerns that can be treated with these formulations.

This new release from I’m From uses Fig, which I’ve never actually eaten before let alone seen in skincare. Because of this, I went into testing without any specific expectations but I was pleasantly surprised! The collection includes the Fig Boosting Essence, Fig Cleansing Balm and the Fig Scrub Mask. It’s available on the Wishtrend website with prices ranging from USD$30-$35.

Since these are a new release, I’ve only used them for about a week or two so the below are mostly my initial thoughts on the products. However, I definitely have my favourites already! At the moment, this range is on sale for an introductory 10% off (limited time only), as well as my code for a special discount: STELLA15 (until May 31st CST)

If you’d like to pick up any of these or explore the I’m From brand, hop on over to the Wishtrend website. Before that though – lets check out the new Fig Collection!
