Review: Blemish Spot Clearing Serum (COSRX)

COSRX AC Collection Blemish Spot Clearing Serum Kbeauty BB Cosmetic Review

If you have been following my hormonal acne adventures, then you’ll know that I’ve tried a lot of different formulations. Some have done nothing for me at all, and most only gave me mild relief from my breakouts. However, there has been one brand that has given me some of the best results.

This is COSRX, arguably one of the most popular indie kbeauty brands of the past few years. I used their Calming Liquid Mild and, with extended use, it actually completely stopped my monthly break outs. I’m definitely going to be repurchasing that but, for the sake of wanting to try something new, I got a different product from their AC Collection first.

I’ve been testing out the Blemish Spot Clearing Serum, which is a multifunction serum for acne care and skin recovery. Going into this review, I had very high hopes for this line and saw good short term results (which I will be discussing). From experience though, their products work best when they’re used for an extended time period so I will likely update my thoughts on this more once I finish the bottle.

This Blemish Spot Clearing Serum is available on BB Cosmetic for USD$18.99 – and you can also use my code for 5% off (QAL3F6ZA8YZ).

Before anything, let’s get into this review!

Review: Bio-Water B9 Hydration, CicaPepta Repair & Peony Acmella Serum (Neulii)

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

If you subscribe to me on Youtube, then you may have seen the Neulii haul that I posted last year. It’s taken me a long time to actually get into using and reviewing these products (mostly because I have so many skincare products lined up for reviews), but it also means that I am definitely taking my time to thoroughly test every single product.

For this post, I want to discuss the three serums that are currently available in the range. Personal experiences will be added to this post as I go through them but, in the meantime, let’s discuss what the three are too!

At the time of writing, I have only tested out the CicaPepta Repair Serum (to really wonderful results) so the Bio-Water B9 Hydration Serum and Peony Acmella Antioxidant Serum will be to follow. If you’d like to get your hands on these and try them out yourself, then check out the Neulii brand at RoseRoseShop.

And now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream (COSRX)

COSRX Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream Kbeauty BB Cosmetic 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.

There are a couple of brands that I always trust and COSRX is easily one of them – they’re one of the best indie brands in kbeauty and are dominating the industry, especially for their anti-acne formulations. I recently got a bunch of their products to try out and, funnily enough, this first one isn’t target problem skin at all!

This is the Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream, which is something that I saw on Instagram before and was super curious about. The reason I found this so intriguing is because it claims to be both a toner and cream, so it can be used for either or both purposes. I love lightweight and easy to use products, especially for my morning routine (which isn’t so much as a routine but rather two rushed steps before I do make up).

The Toner to Cream is currently available for USD$16.45 from BB Cosmetic, or you can check out the rest of their COSRX offerings too. In general, this is a brand that I stand by and they’ve given me great results without fail, so I always recommend their stuff. You can also use my code on BB Cosmetic for 5% off – QAL3F6ZA8YZ – it isn’t much but it’s something.

Now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Premium Moisturising Ampoule Mask (APLB)

Style Story APLB Kbeauty Review Premium Moisturizing Ampoule Mask

This product was gifted to me as an event competition prize. I was not paid for this review and affiliate links are not used in this post.

How often do you sheet mask? I have a massive collection of them but I’m usually pretty lazy with it. Lately though, I’ve been trying to work through my stash before it all expires so I’ve been masking almost every night. It gives me the opportunity to just close my eyes and chill for a moment, which is pretty important for me and my high anxiety personality.

One of the masks that I’ve been really enjoying is the Premium Moisturising Ampoule Mask from APLB, which comes in a set of five. You can get it in three different colour variations (Blue, Yellow and Pink) which are all targeted for different skin concerns.

This is actually my last APLB review (for now) out of the package that StyleStory had sent to me. In general, I have had mixed opinions with this brand – although they are all good, their formulas are generally targeted for sensitive skin so some were too gentle for me. My personal favourite would be their Blackout Perfect Cleansing Oil (which I also wrote about here) and these sheet masks would fall a close second!

If you’d like to check this out, this is available on StyleStory for AUD$29.95 or is currently on sale for AUD$24.95! Before you jump onto their website though, let’s kick into this review.

Review: Centella Complex Mist Toner (APLB)

Style Story APLB Kbeauty Review Centella Complex Mist Toner

This product was gifted to me as an event competition prize. I was not paid for this review and affiliate links are not used in this post.

I have been meaning to write this review for a really long time but, for some reason, other things just kept coming up and my to-do list just got busier and busier! Finally though, I’m starting it (just as I am possibly finishing off my bottle of this toner haha)!

This is the Centella Complex Mist Toner from APLB. This is an all-in-one mist that is specially targeted for troubled or sensitive skin. It is suitable for both face and body too – which is pretty unique. I personally love using mist toners so I was pretty excited about this. I used it alone for a while and, even now that I’ve switched to a different toner (for my hormonal break outs), I still turn to this one during the day for quick and effective application.

You can get this at StyleStory for AUD$27.95 (currently on sale from AUD$34.95) so pop onto their website to check this out and everything else from APLB too! I especially recommend their Blackout Cleansing Oil which I also reviewed here and absolutely adore.

Without any more waffling from me though, let’s kick into this review!

Review: Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule (Swanicoco)

Swanicoco Bitamin C Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule 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.

Have you guys heard of a brand called Swanicoco? I was introduced to them by StyleKorean who, at the time that I received this product, had just brought them to their store. However, I’ve actually seen their stuff around on Instagram before! To be honest, I can’t say that I am that familiar with them though, but I was still interested to try them out.

Swanicoco is a brand that focuses on the use of natural ingredients – in fact, the founder started out by making natural skincare for her family’s sensitive and atopic skin conditions. All products from the brand use 90% to 100% natural ingredients and are free from animal testing. In addition, the brand excludes any harmful ingredients from their formulations (pigments, synthetic perfumes, chemical preservatives, alcohol, mineral oil, paraben and benzophenone) so they are also suitable for sensitive skin.

I decided to start off with their Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule. I love brightening products and, since my skin has been quite irritated with all of my break outs lately, it seemed like I needed a new and more gentle formula.

This is currently available on the StyleKorean website for USD$24.20 so definitely jump on there if you want to check it out.

Otherwise, let’s get into this review!

Review: Patting Splash Mask (Blithe)

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey 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.

So I first decided to try out the Blithe Patting Splash Mask because it was so unique – I used masks all of the time and I’ve tried some pretty wild things (hello foot peeling mask) but I have never come across a ‘splash’ mask. To be honest, I didn’t really understand what it was either but, now that I’ve tried it, I have zero regrets. In fact, if I had actually searched up some reviews about this before hand, I wouldn’t have hesitated either – I’m definitely not the only one who loves this.

This is a liquid mask solution that is known to give pretty much instant results. The application of it can be a bit messy and there’s a learning curve to it but, once you get it, it’s pretty enjoyable. I first tested this out by using it every day for around 4 days, which was fine on my skin, but I read some (pretty reliable) reviews online that recommended to use it every second or third day instead, so I switched it up. Since this can be a bit pricey, I think that it’s better to be able to use it less often too anyway.

So this mask is currently selling on StyleKorean for USD$35.91 for a 200mL bottle – which is enough for approximately 30 uses – or USD$29 for a 150mL bottle. It comes in three different variants too but the one that I have is the Energy Citrus and Honey. Jump onto their website if you want to pick it up too but otherwise, let’s get into this review!

Review: Veil Tint Dewy (CLIO)

CLIO Veil Tint Dewy 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.

CLIO is one of those k-beauty brands that I trust when it comes to make up. Of course, it’s natural that not all of their products suit my skin type (for example, those very popular dewy cushion foundations look ridiculous on me), they are still very consistent with their quality and brand values. I’ve been in love with them since back when I was studying in Korea and my friend got me into their Kill Brow and Kill Black lines, and those are still products that I recommend to this day!

The CLIO brand is all about bringing professional artistry quality makeup to an affordable, road shop setting. When you go into their stores, you’ll find that everything is somewhat nightlife and club inspired (hence they call themselves Club CLIO) so you can expect high pigmentation, long wearing and life-proof formulations.

StyleKorean just sent me through three of the Veil Tint Dewy (which I have been eying because of the gorgeous monochromatic packaging). I chose three shades from different colour families – Maroon Blood, Rose Milk Tea and Taro Rose – as I wanted to give a wholistic overview on how these perform.

If you want to get your hands on them, they are selling for USD$9.60 each (on sale from USD$19.20) at StyleKorean. But before that, lets get into this review!

Review: Blackout Perfect Cleansing Oil (APLB)

Style Story APLB Kbeauty Review Blackout Perfect Cleansing Oil

This product was gifted to me as an event competition prize. I was not paid for this review and affiliate links are not used in this post.

I used to be really bad with cleansing but I have been rather religious with it since I got into k-beauty (thank goodness). I usually shift between cleansing balms or cleansing oils, mostly just dependent on what I’m testing out at the time; I don’t really have a formula preference but I do want something that is super effective on waterproof make up and also quick to use in the shower.

Lately, I’ve been using the Blackout Perfect Cleansing Oil from APLB. This was one of the products that StyleStory had sent for me to review and – seriously – it’s so good! I have been using this every day since receiving it and I think this has set a new standard for cleansing oils for me. Previously, I’ve enjoyed the Banila Co Clean it Zero Balm and Neogen Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil but even they pale (if only just a little) in comparison.

The Blackout Perfect Cleansing Oil is available on the StyleStory website for AUD$32.95 and, of course, they do free shipping for all Australian orders over AUD$60 too. Pop onto their website to check this out (I highly recommend it) but, before you do…

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!
