Review: Hyal Reyouth Ampoule (Dr Ceuracle)

Dr Ceuracle Hyal Reyouth Ampoule BB Cosmetics Kbeauty Review

Have you used anything from Dr Ceuracle before? The original company (Leegeeham) was launched back in 2000, but they changed their name and visual identity last year – it’s been well received and a lot of people have been complimenting the refreshed design too. Regardless of the change though, the brand has maintained its focus on professional, dermatologist tested skincare and are actually still carrying their most famous Tea Tree Essence!

I was looking through BB Cosmetic‘s inventory a while ago and noticed that they carried a lot of their products – I hadn’t tried anything from the brand before and I just knew it was time. The Hyal Reyouth Ampoule caught my eye partly because of the gorgeously simple packaging, and also because I’m a big fan of Hyaluronic Acid in general. I have combination-oily skin, so I find that most HA formulas suit me well.

If you’d like to check out this product, it’s available on BB Cosmetic for USD$27.20 (use my code QAL3F6ZA8YZ for 5% off). There is also a Hyal Reyouth Toner and Hyal Reyouth Night Cream within the same range.

Before you jump onto the website though, let’s get into this review!

Review: Youthful Glow Sugar Mask (Klairs)

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me 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 have tried out a handful of Klairs products since getting into kbeauty and I really like their simple approach to their brand and formulations. Of course, not everything is going to work for everyone – it all comes down to skin type and personal preference really. However, I trust the brand a lot so I’m always down to try something new from them.

One of the products that had been catching my eye on Instagram is the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask. I have actually been eying since the first launch but it was not yet available on the main Wishtrend website – it’s here now though and I’m so glad that I can finally satisfy my sugary curiosity! Although it is described as a sugar mask, it is actually multi-purpose and can also be used as a scrub.

It is marketed as being suitable for all skin types but reviews seem to say this is more targeted for dry to normal skin. Since I lean more to the oily side, I was more limited with how I can use the product. However, I have been trying it out for a while and I’m really confident that I can give this a thorough review!

So, if you want to check out the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask then pop onto Wishtrend (where it’s selling for USD$24). Otherwise, here’s the review!

Review: AC Collection (COSRX)

COSRX AC Collection Full Review Kbeauty Stylekorean Try Me Review Me

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 keeping my break outs at bay, there is nothing that I trust more than the COSRX AC Collection! I’ve used quite a few products from their brand before but I have to say that I think this line is their best yet – or at the very least, it’s the one that works the best for my skin. In the past, I have used their Calming Liquid Mild and Blemish Spot Clearing Serum with great results and I was really excited to now have the chance to test out (almost) the entire line!

This was sent to me by StyleKorean as part of their Try Me Review Me series. So far, I have only tested out the products for approximately a week (except the two that I’ve already used) so the below are some initial thoughts on the products. I will update this post more as I start to finish them – from my past experience, the AC Collection formulas generally start to show maximum results after three or so weeks.

So, if you want to pick up anything from COSRX or the AC Collection in general, then definitely jump on over to StyleKorean. Otherwise, let’s get into this review!

Interview: Behind the Scenes with Yuni Beauty

Yuni Beauty Interview

Yuni Beauty is a brand that I’ve worked with a few times since being introduced to them last year. I actually met a member of their team at a Sephora Showcase and they quickly won me over with their passion for sustainability and also creating beauty products for active (and fast paced) lifestyles. I’ve used a good handful of their products already and I’ve definitely had some great experiences.

Recently, I had the opportunity to ask a few questions to their co-founder, Emmanuel Ray, both about the brand and some of the amazing things that they release. Read on for my interview with him where he discusses the history of Yuni Beauty, the story behind one of their most famous products and what new goodies are in store.

After this, you can also shop their range at either their main website (Yuni Beauty) or, if you’re in Australia, they’re stocked at Sephora Australia! I would personally be recommending their Rose & Cucumber Shower Sheets, the Count to Zen Rejuvenating Hand and Body Creme (which is my go-to product for my RetinA side-effect dry skin) and their Chillax Muscle Recovery Gel!

Review: Dotom Lip Plus Plumper (Keybo)

Keybo Dotom Lip Plus BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review Lip Plumper

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

Lip plumpers can be a very dividing product – people either love them or can’t stand them at all. Personally, I like the look of fuller lips but don’t like when they’re overdramatic, so these will generally give me the subtle effect that I’m after. I’ve tried quite a few of them already and they can really vary in level of intensity and effectiveness.

The one that I’m reviewing today is from Keybo, a kbeauty brand that’s completely new to me! The packaging for this actually caught my eye first but I wanted to try this out because I’ve been enjoying glosses on my ‘lazy’ make up days, and felt like this would be a good way to kill two birds with one stone (i.e. be both lazy and have nice lips). In the end, I think that this is a pretty good lip plumper, though it isn’t one that I reach for all the time – for reasons that I will discuss below!

The Dotom Lip Plus Plumper is available on BB Cosmetic for USD$11.40 and is also available in five shades. You can also use my code for 5% off (QAL3F6ZA8YZ)!

For now though, let’s get into this review.

Review: Glitter Jelly Mask Pack (Elleybear)

Dazzling Face Party Elleybear Purple Space Glitter Jelly Mask Review BBCosmetic

Sheet masks are a kbeauty staple but, if you’re looking for something just a little bit fancier, then hydrogel masks are the way to go! This type of material tends to adhere better and, while they usually contain less essence, the hydrogel actually holds hydration in for longer so I find that the effectiveness of these masks are far superior. I’ve used a lot of these in the past and definitely turn to them for my ‘special’ days.

Recently, I got my hands on the Glitter Jelly Mask Pack from Elleybear – these come in three colour variants targeting either anti-wrinkle, whitening or soothing. In retrospect, I probably should have went for either whitening or soothing (the pink or green variant respectively) but the truth is that I’m a sucker for anything purple and so I’m now using anti-wrinkle masks haha! Well, it’s never too early?

The Glitter Jelly Mask Pack, which comes in a pack of five, is available on BB Cosmetic for USD$29.95. I have to say though, these are pretty expensive for hydrogel and, in my opinion, there are better masks out there with a better price point. If you do want to grab it though, or any other masks from BB Cosmetic, you can always get an easy 5% off with my code (QAL3F6ZA8YZ).

Now, let’s get into this review because I have some thoughts!

Review: Cream Skin Refiner (Laneige)

Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Toner & Moisturiser Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

As someone who has combination skin, it can be pretty difficult to balance the oil production on my skin. My t-zone tends to get very oily whilst the rest of my face is fairly normal. Because of this, I gravitate towards lightweight textures and formulas, but struggle to find something that is still going to hydrate properly during drier seasons.

Of course, who else would answer my needs but Laneige!

They are one of my favourite skincare brands and I use a lot of their products religiously. A few months ago (some time last year), they released their Cream Skin Refiner which was incredibly popular and has since developed into a complete line! I was fairly late to this bandwagon because it took a while for the product to finally reach Australia, but here it is!

Rebranded for the Australian market as the Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer, this is essentially the Skin Refiner with a new name (which makes more sense for the Western market). It is currently available at Sephora Australia for AUD$41 or, of course, you can also search which ever stockist is relevant to your country (and, if you’re lucky, then you might have access to even more from the Cream Skin line).

Before you do though, let’s get into this review because I have been testing this out very thoroughly and have some great things to say!

Review: Blemish Spot Clearing Serum (COSRX)

COSRX AC Collection Blemish Spot Clearing Serum Kbeauty BB Cosmetic Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

If you have been following my hormonal acne adventures, then you’ll know that I’ve tried a lot of different formulations. Some have done nothing for me at all, and most only gave me mild relief from my breakouts. However, there has been one brand that has given me some of the best results.

This is COSRX, arguably one of the most popular indie kbeauty brands of the past few years. I used their Calming Liquid Mild and, with extended use, it actually completely stopped my monthly break outs. I’m definitely going to be repurchasing that but, for the sake of wanting to try something new, I got a different product from their AC Collection first.

I’ve been testing out the Blemish Spot Clearing Serum, which is a multifunction serum for acne care and skin recovery. Going into this review, I had very high hopes for this line and saw good short term results (which I will be discussing). From experience though, their products work best when they’re used for an extended time period so I will likely update my thoughts on this more once I finish the bottle.

This Blemish Spot Clearing Serum is available on BB Cosmetic for USD$18.99 – and you can also use my code for 5% off (QAL3F6ZA8YZ).

Before anything, let’s get into this review!

Review: Bio-Water B9 Hydration, CicaPepta Repair & Peony Acmella Serum (Neulii)

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

If you subscribe to me on Youtube, then you may have seen the Neulii haul that I posted last year. It’s taken me a long time to actually get into using and reviewing these products (mostly because I have so many skincare products lined up for reviews), but it also means that I am definitely taking my time to thoroughly test every single product.

For this post, I want to discuss the three serums that are currently available in the range. Personal experiences will be added to this post as I go through them but, in the meantime, let’s discuss what the three are too!

At the time of writing, I have only tested out the CicaPepta Repair Serum (to really wonderful results) so the Bio-Water B9 Hydration Serum and Peony Acmella Antioxidant Serum will be to follow. If you’d like to get your hands on these and try them out yourself, then check out the Neulii brand at RoseRoseShop.

And now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream (COSRX)

COSRX Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream Kbeauty BB Cosmetic Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

There are a couple of brands that I always trust and COSRX is easily one of them – they’re one of the best indie brands in kbeauty and are dominating the industry, especially for their anti-acne formulations. I recently got a bunch of their products to try out and, funnily enough, this first one isn’t target problem skin at all!

This is the Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream, which is something that I saw on Instagram before and was super curious about. The reason I found this so intriguing is because it claims to be both a toner and cream, so it can be used for either or both purposes. I love lightweight and easy to use products, especially for my morning routine (which isn’t so much as a routine but rather two rushed steps before I do make up).

The Toner to Cream is currently available for USD$16.45 from BB Cosmetic, or you can check out the rest of their COSRX offerings too. In general, this is a brand that I stand by and they’ve given me great results without fail, so I always recommend their stuff. You can also use my code on BB Cosmetic for 5% off – QAL3F6ZA8YZ – it isn’t much but it’s something.

Now, let’s get into this review!
