Review: Hell-Pore Clean Up Mask (Elizavecca)

Stylekorean Kbeauty Review Hell Pore Clean Up Mask Elizavecca

I’ll be honest, the reason I wanted to try this is because I watched Tati’s video and seeing her tear up trying to peel this off sort of made me laugh. I’ve had experience using peel off masks before (along with nose strips) and they generally don’t hurt me much. They also don’t usually remove blackheads from my pores either, so I mostly use them for a bit of fun and just general pore cleaning.

For Elizavecca’s Hell Pore Clean Up Mask though, the product had been hyped so much and there are so many (way overly faked) screaming videos of people peeling it off, that I just had to try it out for myself. For this review, please keep in mind that different skin types and sensitivities will react differently – my own is generally not very sensitive (aside from allergies) so what doesn’t irritate my skin might do yours.

I received this product from StyleKorean for reviewing purposes, so remember to click onto their page to check it out (as well as all the other pretties that they carry – just in time for Christmas shopping). On with the review!

Review: Vivian Blue (Klenspop)

Klenspop Vivian Blue review

This review is definitely a long time coming! I received this package while I was in Korea so had to wait until I was back in Sydney to photograph them and then, of course, took a while to get to finishing the photos (and wearing them out a bit more to get a good idea of my thoughts). That being said, let’s proceed!

This is another pair of lenses that I received from Klenspop which I absolutely love. I’ve worn them on a few occasions and I think they’re best suited for a more heavy make up look – it’s definitely not a casual, every day lens. Read on for my review and more photos!

Review: Collagen Modeling Cup Pack (Inoface)

Skin18 Collagen Modeling Cup Pack Review

I was planning on waiting at least another two days before doing this review but, to be honest, I am sitting down right after trying this mask because I am so disappointed in it. Out of the whole set that I had received from Skin18, I was actually the most excited to try this one – it was a concept that I hadn’t tried before and, well, it’s collagen. I feel like collagen and vitamin C are the super essentials in my skin care.

So tonight, I went and prepped my face with some toner, serum and essence (as I had read on their website that these masks are often used over skin care to seal in the product) and I was preparing myself for a nice night of super glowing skin and hydration but then… well, disaster struck.

I had even taken an additional photo and planned on taking two more, but I am so disappointed in this that I don’t even see the point in editing an extra image.

Review: Packs and Patches (Luke and Purederm)

Skin18 Luke Mugwort Nose Strip Review

I just finished my review for the following three patches! I know that my reviews have been a little slow of the late, but it has been a pretty busy week or so, but I promise that they will be picking up soon. I have more sponsored reviews that I need to finish photographing (and editing), as well as a bunch of more products to do write ups with – both sponsored and my own. There’s lots of content to come your way!

So the following is the second part of my second sponsored package from Skin18! Hope you enjoy reading about these packs and patches.

Review: Snail Essence Mask (Luke)

Skin18 Luke Snail Essence Mask Review

This is my second time receiving a blogger’s package from Skin18 so it’s really nice to take my time, sit back and relax with these sheet masks and packs. Some of these were more exciting to test than others but I’m sure that you will noticed that throughout the posts. The first one I decided to try (well, the one I’m posting about first) is a Snail Essence Mask by the brand LUKE. I’ve used a lot of snail masks in the past and my favourite has been from Hanskin, so I was interested to see how this would compare.

According to the website, this mask protects elasticity and to repair skin from the aging process. It provides a concentrated burst of nutrition and hydrates the skin. The latter is what I tend to focus on most, as I have very minimal need for anti-aging properties at the moment. The website also says that this has whitening functions but… I’m unsure about that.

Review: White in Whipping Cream (G9 Skin)

G9 Skin Berrisom White in Whipping Cream Review BB Cosmetic

When I came back from Korea, I’d brought back so much that I knew my blog would be back logged for ages – and I’m right because I just finished drafting around thirty five new review posts, and that isn’t even everything yet. It’s a bit daunting to look at that number, but I figured that there’s no better to time kick back in so here I am!

The first review I’ll be doing is for a product that I was actually gifted by BB Cosmetic. I met up with one of their managers, Elle, while I was in Seoul and she was so, so sweet. We had some trouble finding each other in Hongdae because I didn’t have a phone to properly contact her, but we finally met, had dinner and just chatted in general. She gave me a few products from the company to review, so I’m really happy that I got to test this.

I actually didn’t come across G9 Skin in Korea, most likely because they are very new. The brand is a sister brand (I think) of Berrisom, both of which aren’t exactly road shop brands so you need to find a stockist for them. Luckily for us though, they are very easily accessible online.

Review: Dailism Serum Rogue (Heimish)

Heimish StyleKorean Review Kbeauty Dailism Serum Rogue

Everything that I have tried from Heimish so far has totally blown me away, so I’m pretty happy to finish off this series of reviews with two of their serum rogue lipsticks. Though their products aren’t cheap, they are far from expensive (and are actually pretty affordable), have excellent pigmentation and very pretty packaging – which is often a deal breaker for me.

Heimish as a brand has a modern and chic style, focusing on make up styles that are simple and easy to use for all. The attention is on the wearer (you), instead of the actual product. Their ‘No More Normal’ mantra is about makes you stand out – not them. In this sense, I think that Heimish has a very unique approach to make up and it definitely reflects in their range.

The following lipsticks were sent to me for review by StyleKorean. From memory, not many stores are stocking Heimish yet (as they are not a roadshop brand) so definitely check them out if you’re interested in any of this. You can also check out my previous review of their eyeshadow palette and waterdrop tint.

Review: Pink Nail Treatment Pack (Koelf)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare Petitfee

This is (for now) the last in my series of Koelf masks so, first off, I want to thank RoseRoseShop for sending all of these over for me to test. Previous to this, I’ve never actually used anything from Koelf before. Their products definitely have their pro and cons, but it’s great to see them for myself!

Recently, I’ve tested heel patches (on my mother), elbow patches (on myself) and cleaners and creams from their sister brand Petitfee. To finish us off, I’m going to go back to the Koelf brand with their pink nail treatment pack. I expect this to be very similar to the previous hydrogel packs, though I don’t think I’ve used anything similar for my nails before.

Before using this, I thought that my nails were in a pretty good condition but – let me tell you – you have no idea how dry they are until after they are hydrated! Lets give this a shot. On with the review!

Review: Dailism Waterdrop Tint (Heimish)

Heimish StyleKorean Review Kbeauty Dailism Waterdrop Tint

I love this lip tint. I honestly don’t even know how else to begin this review except for that. I’ve been carrying it in my bag almost religiously so I’ve been using it almost every day – it’s pretty much replaced the old (and now scratched) lip tint that I have from The Face Shop. I brought this to Korea with me, as I did the eyeshadow palette, and I have this one to thank for saving me every time my lips went dry – which was often.

This one is also from Heimish’s Dailism collection and is called their waterdrop tint – most likely a reference to the droplet shaped applicator. It is a lip stain and, in accordance to the Heimish brand, is meant to be easy to use, wearable and also distinctive. The formula is a bit creamy (like a gel) and is said to contain rose hip seed oil extract – keep lips soft and hydrated too.

Read on for my review! This, along with the other Heimish pretties that I’ve been reviewing, have been sent to me for review by StyleKorean and is available for USD$11.77 (full price is USD$13.08) so remember to check them out!

Review: D-Off Phyto Foam Cleanser (Petitfee)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare Petitfee

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!
