Review: Jeju Cherry Blossom Collection (Innisfree)

Innisfree Cherry Blossom Collection Kbeauty Review

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

Cute collections always make me smile and, of course, Innisfree has succeeded again with their 2020 Jeju Color Picker Collection – this year inspired by cherry blossoms! It is perfectly timed with the season in Korea and was available from March to the end of April, but availability has been extended due to recent events. Instead, they will sell the remaining stock once they reopen stores too!

All of these products take inspiration from the blossoms, so you can expect gorgeous packaging and a lot of pink! This collection includes a Nail Set, Matte Mineral Setting Powder, Luminizer, Lip Tinted Sticks (available in 3 shades) and – of course – the Cherry Blossom Eyeshadow Palette. I was lucky enough to get my hands on most of this collection and I am in love! It’s actually rare that I like every single thing in a collection, but I couldn’t find a way to dislike anything. I’ll say it now that this is definitely highly recommended from me.

That being said, Innifree stores in Australia are currently closed due to COVID19 so they are only selling from their official stockist (AdoreBeauty), as well as other unofficial stores. I noticed that AdoreBeauty only carry their skincare so if you’d like to get anything from this collection, you may need to wait until stores reopen here in Australia. It’s worth the wait though!

And now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Jeju Cherry Blossom Jelly & Tone Up Cream (Innisfree)

Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone Up and Jelly Cream Kbeauty Review

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

I first came across the Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom range when I was in Shanghai – it was totally new at the time and, after trying it in store briefly, I was pretty keen to try it out myself. However, the exchange rate meant that it cost an exorbitant amount more than it should have so I have waiting for it to come to Australia.

And yes, finally it’s here! Innisfree Australia launched the Cherry Blossom Collection a few weeks ago and I was invited to the pop-event event too. I had a great morning with all of the creative little features that the team set up (and you can find my post about it on Instagram too), but the best thing that came out of that was that they actually gifted me two of the products from this line – and they’re exactly the two that I wanted to get!

I received the Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone-Up Cream and the Jeju Cherry Blossom Jelly Cream, which are really the heroes of this release. Both of them are available with Innisfree Australia for AUD$36 each either online or at one of their brick-and-mortar stores.

Before you get shopping though, let’s get into this review!

New Release: AKOCO and their Flawless Sets

Akoco Kbeauty Flawless Set 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.

The kbeauty industry is massive and it seems like every day that a new innovation in skincare is being launched, so it can be really hard to keep up. The great thing is that there are experts out there and they have put their time and effort into curating only the best of the best for you. The relatively new online store AKOCO has just launched with their boxed sets and – seriously – they are so well done. At this point in time, they have also released a number of different sets to target different skin concerns but the original is the Flawless Set.

To celebrate their launch, they sent me their Flawless Set and you would have seen me posting about this on Instagram – I just love the products that they’ve included in here. I only just noticed that I hadn’t written up an unboxing though (and this post is a good three months late for which I am so sorry). I was originally holding out to try everything first but realised that that’s going to take much too long so I’ll be sharing with you this anyway!

Although the Flawless Set is now out of stock, they do have their new Flawless Flaw-less set in stock (which targets acne prone skin) or, of course, you can always shop their products individually.

So – let’s get into it!

Review: Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack (Innisfree)

Innisfree Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack Review BB Cosmetic Kbeauty

It’s time for some skincare talk! I mostly review make up and cosmetics on my blog (because I have a really short attention span and like to play with colours every day) but I do like to make some room for a bit of skincare – especially because that’s what kbeauty is best known for.

Lately, I have noticed that I developed a few sunspots on my face (even with my regular sunscreen and SPF application) – this can either be genetic, which is highly likely, or because of the super harsh sun here in Australia. For that reason, I’ve been on the look out for whitening products to work on lightening pigmentation on my skin. I have used Vitamin C serums before and seen it work on my mother, but it was at the expense of really thinning out her skin, so I decided to try something else.

Instead, BB Cosmetic sent me a sleeping pack from Innisfree – the Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack. According to the description, this product helps to improve skin tone, dark spots and work towards a ‘transparent’ skin texture. So, I tested this out at night for a pretty long time before going to write this and – while it did improve my skin in some ways – it also didn’t target my dark spots as I wanted it to do.

Remember to check out BB Cosmetic to get your hands on these (or any other products from Innisfree). 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: Ampoule Moisture Cushion (Innisfree)

Innisfree Ampoule Moisture Cushion N21 Review

This Innisfree Ampoule Moisture Cushion was, in a way, one of the fastest purchases of my life. However, it also took the longest because I ended up in store for another hour or so shopping and buying everything else (and I bought a lot there… which I completely blame on Sophia and her bad influence). For this reason, I’m actually somewhat surprised that it took me to long to write this review. It has been sitting in my drafts since last year October and, while I had already made up my mind and gathered my thoughts about this product, it seemed that I was a bit lazy about getting it all down in post form. Well, what else is new? Haha.

Anyway! So this is a BB cushion that Sophia recommended to me while I was in Korea. This is the product that I used alongside my IOPE for the entire time was I was in Korea – it was cold, windy and my skin was drying out like a desert. I was in serious need for something really hydrating and, being a big fan of the dewy finish, I naturally gravitated to this cushion. All it took was one swatch on my hand and I told the store assistant to gather it up for me.

Review: Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack (Innisfree)

Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack

Honestly, I did not walk into Innisfree with the intention of buying much and yet, the longer I spent in the store, the more and more I found I wanted to try new products. I start off thinking that I would buy a large size of the volcanic clay mask (which I did) and ended up with an entire basket full – in fact, I think I still ended up spending the most out of three of us and I didn’t usually use many of Innisfree products. In the end, I realised that I’m simply a sucker for anything that feels hydrating and smells good. I’m easily bought over.

This one is a sleeping pack that was recommended to me by a sales lady in Edae (she was the best, to be honest). Initially, I wasn’t planning on buying it because I felt that the wine scent was too strong but, after around ten minutes, I realised that I was addicted to smelling it. I ended up purchasing both the sleeping pack and the peeling gel; they were very affordable too.

After some (very fun) testing, I’m now ready to do the review! So read on to find out my thoughts.
