Review: Clear Skin Shield Patch & Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule (By Wishtrend)

By Wishtrend Kbeauty Review Clear Skin Shield Patch and Polyphenols in Propolis 10% Ampoule

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.

There are a few brands out there that are consistently bringing out great quality (and affordable) products and By Wishtrend is definitely one of them! Everything that I’ve tried from them has been really good and I love that a lot of their formulations are also designed to be suitable for many skin types – although they aren’t a ‘for sensitive skin’ brand, they often work towards having more gentle products with minimal irritants.

That all being said, it had been a while since I used anything from By Wishtrend but I was really happy to get into these two products that they sent over to me! Since I have been having some skin troubles lately and exploring different products to ‘perfect’ it (especially since my skin has been changing so much lately), I was extra keen to get into it.

Here is the Clear Skin Shield Patch (which I got into as soon as I got this package), a set of hydrocolloid patches which essentially help to drain out pimples! I love these products but have only used one brand (Nexcare) in the past so I’m happy to be branching out. I also got their Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule, which will be the first propolis product that I’ve tried out.

So, since I’ll be talking about two products in this post, expect that this will be a bit long. Let’s get into it!

Review: Calming Liquid Mild (COSRX)

COSRX AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild Lets Face It Kbeauty Review

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

I love trying out new products but I have to admit that I get a bit overwhelmed at times – there are always so many new, interesting releases but I often get confused about what is actually suitable for me. This is especially the case when it comes to skincare so when Let’s Face It reached out to me about collaborating a while ago, I was so happy for them to recommend me products! I answered some questions about my skin type and my current skin concerns, and they introduced to me a new release from COSRX.

I have been having issues with break outs in the past few months so have been focusing most of my skincare towards rebalancing my skin and, of course, kicking these annoying pimples right to the curb! To add to my current routine, this is the Calming Liquid Mild, which is from the new AC Collection – a special skincare line that targets sensitive and/or acne-prone skin. This is the toner-type product and I have been using it once or twice daily at the beginning of my skincare routine.

This works well to soothe and keep my skin feeling balanced. It hasn’t completely stopped me from breaking out, but did control and calm that one (little) pimple, so I quite like it. You can get the Calming Liquid Mild from Let’s Face It for AUD$36.95, or also shop the rest of the COSRX offerings – most of which are very well suited for any oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin.

But, before you do that, let’s get right into this review!

Review: Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask (Belif)

BONIIK Kbeauty Review Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask

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

There are some brands out there that you hear about a lot but, somehow, never end up trying any of their products – whether it is because of the price or sometimes just because you never really have a chance to. For me, Belif falls into both of these categories. Although they are an independent brand, their price points can be a little bit expensive – not exorbitantly but just a little. In addition, I do have some of my favourite products, so I was never sure if I should be splurging a bit to test this out.

With my recent collaboration with BONIIK, I decided to pick up a tub of this Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask to try out. I did go a little bit over budget (from the store credit they gave me) so I guess this product is partly gifted (hmm). Belif’s most famous product is the True Cream Aqua Bomb, which is their original cult favourite, but I chose to try out something different from the same range instead – the Sleeping Mask. I did try out a lot of other products from BONIIK too and chose this exact product (as well as the Hanyul Watery Calming Gel) because I loved the texture of it and how it felt on my skin.

And I have to say that I have no regrets. I had a really great time testing out this product so I can say immediately that this is going to be a positive review. This is a really great quality product that delivers on their claims so I would definitely recommend checking this out – although they are more expensive than an average mid-tier road shop brand (like Laneige), it is definitely worth it if you are wanting to splurge a bit!

This product is currently selling for AUD$69 and, if you’d like to get your hands on this product, then check out the BONIIK website. If you are a Sydney-sider like myself, you can also drop into their stores at Westfield Sydney or World Square (Sydney CBD).

Review: Face Fixer & Gel Mist (VT Cosmetics – Part II)

VT Cosmetics BTS Kbeauty Review BB Cosmetics

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.

Sit yourself down and take a (comfy) seat because this is going to be a long post! I was originally planning on write this as two seperate posts but, after trying out both of these products from VT Cosmetics found that my thoughts on the two products are so different – because I love one of them so much that it’s my new HG, and then dislike the other one so much that I don’t think I will be finishing it up at all.

If you read my Part I post, you will note that I found products from this brand to be very hit-or-miss, so today I want to share with you a product that I would recommend you rush to buy and another one that really doesn’t live up to expectations.

I received the Super Tempting Face Fixer and the Born Natural Gel Mist from BB Cosmetic to review for you – and obviously, everything that I write is 100% honest. If you’d like to get these products or want to check out more from the VT Cosmetics line, then check out their website!

Review: Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Gel (Hanyul)

BONIIK Kbeauty Review Hanyul Pure Artemisa Watery Calming Gel

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

If you haven’t heard of Hanyul before, then I need you to drop everything because I recently tried out my first product from the brand and I am actually in love. Yes – in love. I’ve been raving about this for quite a while on Instagram and I’m not sure if people understand how much I enjoy this product, so I knew that I had to write this review to talk about.

I received the Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Gel from BONIIK to try out but, actually, it was one that I chose myself after a skin consultation and testing out a bunch of different products. I told them about my combination skin that liked to get oily during the afternoon, and also about how rushed I am for time in the morning. They recommended for me to try out a more lightweight gel-type moisturiser and, after testing out a lot of products, this is the one that I was really keen to take home!

This product is currently selling for AUD$49 and, if you’d like to get your hands on this product, then check out the BONIIK website. If you are a Sydney-sider like myself, you can also drop into their stores at Westfield Sydney or World Square (Sydney CBD).

Review: Cellus Skincare Range (Lagom)

Lagom Kbeauty BB Cosmetics 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.

When BB Cosmetic approached me to collaborate again, I asked them about any new brands that they might be bringing in and wanting me to try out. They were quick to recommend Lagom, which is actually a very new name to me – in fact, I hadn’t even heard about them before this. They are a relatively new addition to the BB Cosmetic offerings and, from what I can see, are an indie kbeauty brand that focuses a lot on whitening/brightening skincare products – which are totally down my alley.

The brand was launched by Kowon, a very experienced celebrity make up artist from Korea. Although her expertise is in cosmetics, her work in the industry made her realise that the most important thing is to have healthy, hydrated and radiant skin. She worked together with a team of scientists to formulate this brand. All of Lagom products are formulated with their hero ingredient, DermaFlux, which is clinically proven to delivery hydration deep into the skin cells (rather than just the outmost skin barrier).

For me to test out of some their range, BB Cosmetic was generous enough to send through a selection of products (which I felt would work best in my routine) for me to try out and I have to say that I’ve been loving these products! They’re effective but simple to use, and I have essentially replaced a chunk of my routine with Lagom. My skin is absolutely loving it, so let me talk to you about all of these products!

In this review, I’ll be talking about the Cellus Mist Toner, Cellus Mild Moisture Cream and the Cellus White Moisture Cream. I’ve been using all three of these products daily so I’ll go in depth into the product, my experiences and my personal recommendations for when I work this into your routine.

Diary: BONIIK – Your K-beauty Destination

BONIIK Sydney Kbeauty Shopping

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post and I do not make any profits from the discount code advertised. Affiliate links are not used.

I first collaborated with BONIIK last year when they were a relatively new store in Australia, and wanted to introduce their brand to a bunch of us beauty bloggers. I’m really happy to say that I will be working with them again in the year of 2019 and, just before I left for Vietnam, I was invited to visit their new store at World Square (Sydney CBD) where I discussed with them my ambitions as a beauty content creator, my skin type and also got recommendations of new products to try out.

So, in this post, I’m going to be writing about the in-store experience for BONIIK. They have two stores in Sydney where you can visit yourself to talk with their store assistants for skin recommendations, or you can also shop them online at BONIIK.com

Best of all though, is that they’ve actually give me a discount code to share with everyone! Until the end of March, you can get 15% off all purchases at both their physical stores or online just by showing my code – OHMYSTELLAR15

So, lets get into this post! I can’t wait to show you all of the photos I took of their store because it’s actual eye candy to see all of these walls of glorious kbeauty.

Review: Hydrogel Very Simple Pack (Cosrx)

COSRX Hydrogel Very Simple Pack BB Cosmetics 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.

I personally love hydrogel masks but the problem is that they tend to be a lot more expensive than a standard sheet mask so I can only save them for special occasions. However, when I came across this product I knew that COSRX has found that gap in our market and found a perfect way to fill it – this is the Hydrogel Very Simple Pack. It comes in a tub of 60, which makes it a much more affordable option in comparison to individual masks.

COSRX is a very popular kbeauty brand, though I find that most of their hype is within the actual beauty community (they don’t have any stand alone stores in Korea but rather sell inside of Watsons – the drug store). They are very well known for their acne care products, in particular their acne pads, patches and pore clearing toner. I have used a handful of their products in the past and enjoyed them but hadn’t been fully blown away yet. However, this is fast becoming a recent favourite of mine!

I also believe that this was developed in collaboration with kbeauty blogger Hanbyul but there isn’t too much information about this (I used to be an avid watcher of her videos but not so much anymore, so I’m not up to date).

I recieved this from BB Cosmetic to review and this tub is selling for USD$17.65 (discounted from USD$26) – and they also offer free shipping worldwide with no minimum purchase. Check out their website if you’re keen to get this. You can also use my affiliate code for 5% off: QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Review: Vita Duo Cream (Neogen)

Neogen Vita Duo Cream

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

There are only a handful of kbeauty youtubers that I watch now but I have actually watched a couple of videos from Joan Kim (@JoanKeem) in the past – She is actually the one who introduced me to the Neogen brand! It seems so appropriate that she is now collaborating with them.

This is the Neogen Vita Duo Cream, which she also helped to develop and design (packaging wise). Since I’m not a massive fan of hers, my review of this product is purely based on the formula and it’s role in my skincare routine – and I genuinely love this product! I love the concept of the dual cream, which makes it perfect for travel, and the formulation of it also works really nicely with my skin type. This is a product designed to give your complexion the necessary hydration throughout the day, as well as to provide brightening and soothing benefits (depending on which you use).

This product is currently available on NudieGlow for AUD$52 (down from AUD$55) or on StyleKorean for USD$32 – so you can see which store works best with your home currency. Alternatively, you can shop it directly from Neogen’s Amazon store.

I’ve been testing this out twice a day since I got it, and it’s safe to say that I’m very confident with this write up now. So, let’s get right into this review.

Review & Spotlight: Soroci (Available at Style Story)

Sorochi Morning Drizzle Mist Calming and Waterdrop Cream Kbeauty Review Style Story Australia

These products were provided to me by Style Story for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

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 MistMorning Drizzle Waterdrop Cream and the Morning Drizzle Calming Cream. So, let’s jump right into it!
