With the new year coming really, really close, it seems like it’s time for me to finish up my list of top skincare products for the year too! Skincare is an absolutely essential part of a beauty regime and it took spending quite a while in Korea for me to really jump on board of this. Let’s get real here: make up gives you instant results. With the right skills, you can completely transform your look, hide your flaws, in a matter of minutes. There is a reason I tend to review make up more than skincare – it’s faster and I’m impatient.
However, it is important to keep in mind that skincare is not an overnight thing. It is a dedicated regime that improves and protects your complexion continuously. After all, good skin doesn’t wipe off with a baby wipe.
Keeping that in mind, you can actually argue that skincare is more important that make up – and most people believe that. I’m not here to debate though and, instead, I’m going to be showing you the products I’ve used with dedication through this year. These are all things that I love, will be taking with me to 2017 and hope will help you too when you go to check them out. Read on!
I had been waiting for so long to try this thing so out, please, excuse my excitement! This is the first product that I’ve tried from SU:M37 and it’s been raved about by so many other bloggers. I cleanse my face rather religiously because I do wear make up at least five days a week, so I want to make sure that my skin is well cleaned at the end of the day (because no one likes clogged pores or break outs). Generally, my skin is on the dry side and is easily stripped by cleansers, so I look for something that cleans well but still leaves my skin soft and fresh – not irritated.
I would usually do a two step cleanse (with my Etude House sherbet cleanser to begin with) but I have been testing this one by itself as well, just to see how it works. Overall, I’m pretty impressed and I can see why people love this so much.
This was sent to me for review by StyleKorean, who have been so generous with their endless support for me! Remember to check them out if you’re wanting to buy this or anything else – they’ve got an amazing range.
And with that, on with the review!
This was a strange product to me and, honestly, I didn’t expect that it’d be strange because… it’s a foam cleanser. I really didn’t expect anything all that different but let me tell you that this one definitely baffled me for a while. This product is from Petitfee and is called the D-Off Phyto Foam Cleanser (which, to me, sort of sounds like it’s swearing but it means dust off), a cleanser made of natural mint leaf and seven herbal ingredients – the foaming aspect is also meant to be fermented nutrient rice foam. It’s purpose is to penetrate pores, cleanse and moisturise.
To be honest, the overall description of this product was quite confusing to me. Perhaps it’s because I don’t approach natural products in such a in depth manner usually, but I still went into testing this product with an open mind! When I basically took from the description is that the foam cleanser uses natural ingredients in order to both cleanse and hydrate your skin – sounds pretty good to me.
I was sent this to review by RoseRoseShop, where you can get a bottle for $4.16 USD (full price is $11.71). It’s a good price for a good sized bottle so, provided that it works, I think it’ll be great for those more conscious about the ingredients in the products they’re using. Read on for my full review!
Just to clarify, I had really high hopes for this product so even though I say that I’m kind of disappointed, it isn’t because it’s a terrible product. It works, just not how I wanted it to.
I had never used anything from Tosowoong before but had heard really great things about the brand so, when I came across this on My Korean Makeup, I decided that I had to try it. The product is a pore cleanser with a gel product and an attached brush, making usage fast and simple. I had actually searched it up online as well and hadn’t found any other reviews for it, so I was hoping that I would discover a new, wonderful product for you guys to use but… unfortunately, not.
Read on for my experience and thoughts about this Tosowoong product. I received this product to review from My Korean Makeup and you can check out their website to purchase this (or anything else).
Everyone has been obsessed with double cleansing and, admittedly, I’m pretty late on the bandwagon but I’m here now! Today, I’ll be reviewing a product that was very kindly sent me to be Beautynetkorea, who were the ones who actually suggested this to me. This is the O-Le-Mong sherbet cleanser by Etude House, which is scented with three different fruits – orange, lemon and grapefruit! The packaging is pretty cute, in my opinion, though the bright yellow a little different from Etude House’ usual.
The first time that this product was sent to me, the product had unfortunately leaked and ruined the beauty of the packaging, s oBeautynetkorea were sweet enough to send me another one (and even extra bubble wrapped it to make sure it wouldn’t happen again).
