It’d been a while since I tried out some new Korean skincare (as I’ve mostly been sticking with what works to try and re-balance my skin breakouts) but I’ve been using products from Soroci since I had them sent to me and, finally, I feel like I’m ready to write this post! I’ll be doing a quick review on all three of these new releases but, since they are also a relatively new indie brand, I wanted to write this as an introduction.
This brand launched at Style Story earlier this year and they sent the products to me a few weeks ago to get my impressions and honest opinion. As I was testing these products, I worked them into my current skincare routine (which is highly simplified because of my use of acids) and also used them according to the recommendations.
Essentially, I used their toner daily, and then either cream depending on the time of the day and my skin needs. Most of my skincare routine had been replaced with Soroci these past weeks and, while they don’t have dramatic results, I find that their products are really nice and gentle. They also combined well with my acids (mostly the Alpha-H Liquid Gold), which is definitely a plus.
So, I’ll be showing you three products from their Morning Drizzle line – the Morning Drizzle Bucket Mist, Morning Drizzle Waterdrop Cream and the Morning Drizzle Calming Cream. So, let’s jump right into it!
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.
KLAVUU is one of those brands that I’ve been curious about (I was actually first introduced to them at the BONIIK event) but I haven’t tried anything from, mostly because their products can run a bit expensive (in relation to other Korean skincare). However, I’ve heard really good things about their brand especially in the areas of complexion brightening – which people will know is one of my main skin concerns. So when I saw on instagram that StyleKorean was recruiting people for a KLAVUU try me; review me – I applied right away!
I haven’t tried out all of these products yet, as I am currently recovering from a skin allergy from last week, so I thought I would instead write about these products to share the KLAVUU range before doing in-depth reviews later on. I don’t have everything from them (of course), but I was sent a selection of items to review – the Personal Care Aurora Pearl Eye Mask, Pure Pearlsation Revitalizing Facial Cleansing Foam, Pure Pearlsation Divine Pearl Cleansing Oil and the White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream.
So, if you want to know more about KLAVUU or if you’re curious about any of these products, read on!
This product was provided to me by Purito for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.
I was recently approached by a Korean skincare brand called Purito to test out some of their products and, with the experience that I had with them, I was more than happy to. They showed me their English website which talked about their natural and ‘honest’ approach to skincare, focusing on safe and pure ingredients.
I’ll go into that a little further down but basically they asked me to choose a few products and to test them out for at least 2 weeks (and I liked that they seem genuine in wanting to demonstrate the effectiveness of their products). I’ll be starting off with their Centella Green Level Buffet Serum – which is one of their hero products. This is sort of an ‘all in one’ product, meaning that it has a buffet of essential ingredients to help target multiple skin needs at once. This seems really great as a daily serum and you can definitely boost it with a second serum depending on the seasons.
I think that Purito products would be well suited for people with sensitive skin or those who just prefer to use natural products in their routine. So, if that’s you (or if you’ll read what I write regardless), let’s get on with the review!
I had been eying some of these Smith & Cult products since I first saw them online – and now they’re finally stocked at Sephora and much more easily accessible, so I just had to write a post about them. This brand is founded by the same woman who did Hard Candy (Dineh Mohajer launched it in the 90s) so you know that they have plenty of experience and knowledge in all things nails and beauty. Similarly, Smith & Cult started out with their nail products first and have now branched out into cosmetics, and I really couldn’t be happier about the quality of their products!
These were sent to me as samples from PR, but I had actually contacted them myself about reviewing the brand because I was personally so impressed by the quality of what I had seen at Sephora! Of course, I did want to get more information about them as well, as I feel like they have been a bit under-represented outside of Instagram (where their unique nail polish bottles are a blogger’s haven), so it was really good to get an insight into their brand values and their range too.
So Smith & Cult is, according to the website, all about the duality of personalities – represented by bold, sharp colours and cosmetic looks. In a way, their concept is a bit similar to Urban Decay (another favourite of mine); feminine, edgy and unique. It’s easy to see why I’m such a fan, since they embody all of the values that I hold so dear to me. All of that said, today I’ll be discussing three products from their line and giving you my thoughts on them – The Tainted Lip Stained, Lash Dance Mascara and a selection of their Signature Nail Polishes.
Ready? Lets go!
PACKage is a fairly new brand where it comes to Korean sheet masks (and masks in general), but they’re definitely getting some attention online – most famously for their ‘mask bundle’ which I will be reviewing for you today! When BB Cosmetic sent me some products to test out, they were also super generous and sent me some extras of the masks and I’m now trying to decide if I’ll be sharing them out to my family or saving them for a give away – or hoarding them because they’re super cute!
There isn’t a lot of information that I can find about this brand, so my introduction here will be short, but read on to see a box set of their masks – perfect for the skincare fanatic and gifting – as well as reviews on the individual products! The masks for available for purchase on BB Cosmetic and you can buy the separately (Everyday Bouncy Sheet Mask, Melt Me Softly Blackhead Nose Strip Pack, or the Monthly New Feet Foot Peeling Liquid Mask) or in the box set, Float Mask Bundle Set Hapoom Collaboration, which includes 17 masks in total. They have free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ
