Review: Centella Green Level Buffet Serum (Purito)

Purito Kbeauty Skincare Review Centella Green Level Buffet Serum

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!

Review: Mist Toner (Pyunkang Yul)

pyunkangyul mist toner skincare stylekorean 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.

I have so many bottles of mists at home (some new and some half way through) but I love them so much that I’m always keen to try out new ones – and when I saw this Pyunkang Yul Mist Toner, I knew that this would be perfect for me! This is a skin toner and I’m all for putting any water type product into a spray bottle.

StyleKorean sent me this to review and, so far, I’ve used it for just over a week at a minimum of twice a day. The bottle that I have is a 100mL bottle (which you can buy for USD$14.40) – this is the smaller size which is great if you just want to test it out first or if you’re after a travel size. Otherwise, there is also a 200mL bottle which is a better deal at USD$21.60 and would be best to keep at home.

So this review is going to be fairly straight forward but I do want to do a proper introduction to the Pyunkang Yul brand so… read on and get yourself ready!

Review: Red Serum (Medicube)

Oh My Stellar Kbeauty Review Medicube Red Serum Early Picker Review

It has actually been so long since I received this product to try out and I’ve been putting off writing this review simply because it wasn’t terrible, but it also didn’t give me any marked results. I was planning on scrapping this review completely until I recently used the Red Serum again because of a massive break out that I was having after my Vietnam holiday – and, clearly, the results were enough to inspire me to write this.

This product is part of Medicube’s super hyped and popular Red Line – which is a specialised collection for acne prone skin. To be honest, I didn’t expect to see many results from their skin products only because I don’t usually have issues with acne. This situation was a rare care where I spent a few weeks in completely foreign weather conditions and only armed with my most basic skincare. The result was a really bad break out on my chin that stayed for weeks on end. I tried so many things to fix it but nothing did until this.

For a few days, I used this in conjunction with By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream and already saw remarkable results. Another week or two and my break out (which I had struggled with for over a month) was virtually gone.

Review: AHA Scaling Cream (Nakeup Face)

StyleKorean Nakeup Face 10& 5% Glycolic Acid AHA Scaling Cream 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.

I was seeing this cream from Nakeup Face all over my Facebook feed and I was so curious to test it out, but the title Scaling Cream felt really intimidating – not to mention that I had no idea what it even was. However, I did keep it at the back of my mind and I recently checked out the StyleKorean website to find out what it is.

It turns out that this product is a AHA Scaling Cream – it is essentially a chemical exfoliator in the form of a night cream. It helps to remove dead skin cells, keratin and sebum (which block pores) and to help with skin balance and tone. It comes in two concentrations, 5% and 10%, both of which StyleKorean had generously sent me to review in order to determine what sort of routine and system best worked for my skin type. As reference, I have combination skin which can be both dry and oily in different areas or times. The cream is currently selling for USD$21.03–24.30 on their website, so definitely go and check it out while they are also having sales and special coupons available.

All of that said, let’s go right into the review!

Review: Carbonic Sebum Kill Mist (So Natural)

StyleKorean So Natural Pore Tensing Carbonic Sebum Kill Mist 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.

I am one of those people who absolutely lives by mist products. Whether it is for hydrating or if they’re setting sprays, I have a bunch of them sitting on my vanity, more back ups on my shelf… and I’m also always carrying one or two smaller ones in my bag. It’s safe to say that I love these products and, when I saw this on the StyleKorean website I was super excited. This is the Carbonic Sebum Kill Mist from So Natural – one of the newer brands that they started selling at the end of 2017.

According to the website, So Natural is a brand that is centred around a naturalistic philosophy where products are formulated to strength skin’c natural properties – it is ‘informed by nature and formulated with science’. Personally, I think that this is a really great approach to take when it comes to skincare so I’m keen to try a few different things from them.

This product is a sebum controlling fact mist that claims to also tighten up pores. I tried it out alone, underneath my make up and on top of it – I definitely took my time with experimenting this the uses of this product. This product is available on the StyleKorean website for USD$15.79 and they also have a wide range from So Natural to check out.

And, without further ado, let’s get right into it!

Review: Bubble Bubble Lip Mask (Rire)

Rire Bubble Bubble Lip Mask BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review

I use matte lip sticks and lip stains a lot, so it makes sense that my lips are pretty dry a lot of the time. To counteract that, I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask almost every night (which I previously reviewed for BB Cosmetic) but I have also been after a quick, daily treatment that I could use in the mornings if I forget my lip mask the night before. And into the picture comes Rire! If you’ve been reading then you’ll know that I have a bit of a hit or miss relationship with their brand – some of their products have been interesting but, overall, most of them haven’t really impressed me. In general, they seem to have very innovative and different product concepts, but often fall a bit flat when it comes to the effectiveness of their formulas.

For that reason, I admit that I went into this review fairly hesitant. However, after trying out this Bubble Bubble Lip Mask, I think that have finally found a Rire product that I actually – kind of – like!

This was sent to me for review by BB Cosmetic and it sells on their website for USD$8.50 which is a decent price – it isn’t the cheapest lip scrub, but this is a pretty unique product so I think that it’s worth it. So you can check it out on their website; they also 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

Well, let’s jump into it!

Product Launch: TECA 1% Barrier Cream (By Wishtrend)

Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me by Wishtrend 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.

As someone who didn’t suffer from too much acne back in my teenage years and, to this day, generally only gets a few pimples now and then, I really didn’t think that break outs would be an issue for me – not so suddenly! However, since returning from my trip to Vietnam, I had an area of really badly damaged skin (pimples, scarring). My skin hadn’t agreed with the weather there and, while cleansing my skin with the Wishtrend Green Tea Enzyme Powder Wash did help, I wasn’t using it frequently enough to completely prevent break outs.

What great timing it is that Wishtrend came out with another product for me to try and – I swear – they are tracking my lifestyle! This time, they have released the TECA 1% Barrier Cream which is targeted to post-acne recover and weakened skin (i.e. me).

This product will be launching on their website on December 12th but, while I usually aim to have these reviews tested and ready by the launch date to tell everyone about it, I decided to take my time giving this a real test.

Let’s go onto the review!

Review: All Kill Black Peeling Pad (Rire)

BB Cosmetic Rire All Kill Black Peeling Pad Kbeauty Review

After the failure that was the Rire lip powders, I’ve been waiting to give them another shot but none of their products had really caught my eye. However, I recently received two things from their brand to review so I figured that now would be a better time than ever to relook into the brand. This is their All Kill Black Peeling Pad and it reminds me a lot of the Neogen Peeling Pads. The main difference, aside from the ingredients, is that these come in individual packages.

These were sent to me by BB Cosmetic but, of course, I’ll always be giving my full honest opinion on these. They are selling on the website for USD$15.60, which is a bit pricey considering that you only get 10 in a pack, and the Neogen have 30 pads for under USD$20. I also wish that they were sold individually for people to test out.

Anyway, please remember to check out BB Cosmetic. 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

Review: Glow Awakening Cream (Huxley)

Huxley Glow Awakening Cream kbeauty stylekorean 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.

After trying out the Huxley Oil & Extract Mask (which I talked about in my YouTube video and will most likely write a review for it later too) I got really into the brand! Their sheet mask did some incredible things for my skin, so I wanted to try out some other products from their line. I checked out the range that StyleKorean had on their website and, although they aren’t a cheap brand, I found that they’re also decently priced for the quality and effect of it.

Since I’m really into brightening products, I decided to try out the Glow Awakening Cream (I was also looking at the Brightly Ever After Essence which I think I will try at a later date too) and I have to say – very boldly – that this is legitimately the best tone up/whitening cream that I have ever used! Since I started getting into kbeauty, I’d been trying out a lot of different tone up creams to brighten and even out my complexion.

Since most of them leave a very obvious white cast on my skin, I end up using them on my neck (to even out colour) since it makes my foundation look too pale without giving me a brightened glow. This product, however, is the exact opposite and it has some great skincare ingredients too – hence why I use it twice a day.

It is selling for USD$32.71 on StyleKorean – which I know isn’t cheap for a kbeauty skincare product but the added cost is definitely worth it. So read on for my full review on this product and rest assured that this is one I am recommending to you!

Product Launch: Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask (Klairs)

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask Review Wishtrend

This product was sent to me by Wishtrend 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 am so excited that I seriously don’t know how to begin this post. Recently, I was contacted by Wishtrend to test and review a new product that was launching from Klairs on September 22nd. Now, this isn’t just a product that was new in store – no, it is actually the first time that I have received a product to trial pre launch! I am so happy to be given this opportunity and, in return, I now endeavour to give the most detailed and helpful review that I can.

So this new product is a Vitamin E Mask from Klairs, which stand by their motto of Simple but enough. It is a sister product to their Vitamin Drop serum (which I haven’t had the chance to try yet – hint hint) and had hydrating and anti-aging effects, as well as a brightening effect when it is used in conjunction with Vitamin C products. It is a multifunctional product that can be used as a mask, a sleeping pack or a daily moisturiser – although I personally wouldn’t use it as the latter since I’m very conscious of what I put underneath my make up.
