Review: White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream (KLAVUU)

Klavuu Pure Pearlsation Kbeauty Review StyleKorean

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 really excited to try out the KLAVUU products that StyleKorean had sent over to me and, because I am still using up a bunch of other cleansers, I decided to start out with the White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream. This is a product that I originally mistook as a sunscreen, and then figured it was a tone-up cream and then realised that it is actually both. It is a product that can be used underneath make up or alone too.

Unfortunately, this is a product that didn’t suit my skin very well and made me break out – although this is likely to be different individual-to-individual. So, I’m going to be giving you some information on this product, as well as my personal experiences with using it.

This product is selling on the StyleKorean website for USD$34.24, which is relatively expensive – as many KLAVUU products are. There are definitely other tone up creams that are more affordable and have a more lightweight formula.

So, here’s the review!

Review: Moist Cushion (Huxley)

Huxley Secret of Sahara Moist Cushion Kbeauty Review StyleKorean

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.

One of my favourite kbeauty brands at the moment has got to be Huxley – I was introduced to them not too long ago by the StyleKorean Beauty Guru Competition (where I got the opportunity to try out their sheet masks). Since then, I have used a few other skincare products from them and they have been exceptionally great for my skin. I’m also a really big fan of their signature scent, which is really fresh and light.

That all being said, I haven’t tried out any makeup from their brand (though I have a feeling that this is their first cosmetic product) so I was pretty eager to try out their Moist Cushion – which has been really kindly sent to me by StyleKorean to review. I haven’t been really into dewy finishes lately so, to be honest, I tried out this product thinking that I wouldn’t like it but it is surprisingly nice and works well for my skin type.

In addition, I really just live for this scent and I want to bathe my soul in it.

So, let’s get right into this review so I can tell you about one of the most fancy (but classy) cushion cases that I own.

Review: Real Ferment Micro Serum (Neogen)

Neogen Real Ferment Micro Serum Kbeauty Review

This product was provided to me by Neogen for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

When I look into products for my skincare routine, I will generally be focusing on hydration and brightening properties – since they are my main skin concerns. I first came across this Real Ferment Micro Serum from Neogen on Instagram, and I was first interested because the packaging looked really sleek and compact. So, I was pretty excited when it showed up at my place in a PR package and I put it to the test that very evening.

From when I first started to use this, I saw immediate results and I’ve been using it once or twice a day since then (except for a few days break when I was having skin allergies from hayfever). This product feels great on my skin and gives me an instant boost of hydration, as well as helping to brighten and (gradually) diminish my acne scarring. The effects that I’ve seen from incorporating this into my skincare routine have been really good, so I’m keen to share this.

This product is selling on either the official Neogen website or their international stockist Sokoglam for USD$38 – on the pricier side, but worth it for the the effectiveness; especially considering that there are many more expensive products.

So, read on for my full detailed review on this!

Review: Back to Baby Mask – Nourishing Special (3CE)

3CE Back to Baby Mask Nourishing Special Kbeauty Review StyleKorean

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 had my eye on these sheet masks since they first came out, because I just love the packaging, but it’s taken me quite a while to actually get my hands on them. These are the 3CE Back to Baby Mask (in the Nourishing Special version), which come in a box set of three. They’re currently on sale at StyleKorean for USD$11.70, which is a great price because they usually sell for USD$19.50 which is pretty expensive but makes sense since this isn’t just a traditional sheet mask.

I’m a fan of the 3CE brand but, generally, have been more of a fan of their colour cosmetics – some of their base make up leaves a little to be desired, and they have only released limited skincare products. In addition to their white milk collection (which I liked the cream from but don’t really use anything else), they have now expanded on their Back to Baby line with these sheet masks!

I received these to review from StyleKorean and I was planning on waiting for a while longer, since I had some skin allergies last week, but I tried this mask on yesterday and my skin is feeling instantly better! So, click through to read my full review and if you want to check out the product, follow this link to the Baby to Baby Mask product page.

Review: Flat Velvet and Glossy Lipstick (The Face Shop)

The Face Shop Flat Velvet and Glossy Lipstick Kbeauty Review Boniik

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

Quite a while ago, I was invited to a blogger event and they gifted me a whole range of products that I actually hauled on my YouTube and here. It’s taken be quite a while to try out and review everything, and as a matter of fact I haven’t even used all of the masks that they’ve gifted me, but I finally feel like I’m ready to write about this massive box!

This is the full collection of flat lipsticks that The Face Shop carries, in both the velvet and glossy variations. They were generous enough not only to gift us bloggers the full range, but also to create a special PR box to house it all in. It just looks so impressive to see all of the products laid out like that – I actually still have the book case even though I’ve (obviously) taken the lipsticks out to use. That being said, this box is only available for PR and they are actually sold individually, which is probably best as I can’t imagine why anyone would need the whole set (including myself).

For this review, I’m going to be discussing both of these product types as well as showing you lip swatches of all of the colours.

So, without all of this rambling from me, let’s get right into it!

Review: Soft Lip Lacquer (3CE)

StyleKorean Stylenanda 3CE Soft Lip Lacquer Midnight Bottle Perk Up 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.

When I think of lip lacquers, I usually think of opaque glosses – though I’m not even sure if it’s correct. However, these from 3CE were really so different to what I expected; but in a good way. In fact, they are exactly everything I wanted the Velvet Lip Tints to be and I’m a big fan of these!

This review is on the 3CE Soft Lip Lacquer that released a while ago. I eyed them for a while but mostly wrote them off because I thought they would be similar to the velvets – which are nice but too soft in pigment for my own preference. However, when I was looking through the StyleKorean website, I decided that I did want to give these a go. They sent me two shades in this – Perk Up and Midnight Bottle; two of the darker shades in the range. I generally gravitate towards these colours because I’m not a fan of how most nudes or pinks look on me.

These are currently selling for USD$11.70 on StyleKorean (on sale from the full price of USD19.50) which is a pretty decent price – on par with the Velvet Lip Tint, and cheaper than the normal lip sticks. If you like soft looks, then the Velvet is the formula for you but if you are like me and you prefer your lip make up to be bolder and matter – then this is going to be perfect!

Here’s the review!

New Release: Real Fresh Skin Detoxer (Althea)

Althea Angels Welcome Gift Kbeauty

This product was provided to me by Althea for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

Hands up if you want to take good care of your skin but never have the time for daily masks – night time or day?

I feel like if I put that up as a poll, most people that I know would absolutely agree. Especially for those who live busy city lives, it can be really difficult to find that me time so Althea Korea created this product especially for us. This is the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer and it is a totally new release from the brand. They collaborated with Get it Beauty TV – a Korean beauty show that, inside from introducing new beauty trends, also features educational information with beauty professionals (dermatologists, skin care specialists, pharmacists and etc); and the resulting product is one that is truly unique!

This product is a 10 second, 2-in-1 (both a cleanser and a mask) to provide your skin with the extra care that it needs without holding you back from your busy schedule. I tried this out for the past two weeks or so and I’ve found really great results from using this! Of course, the product also has its flaws which I will be discussing too.

And, onto this review/new releases feature! It’s a bit of both.

Spotlight: Althea Angels Program

Althea Angels Welcome Gift Kbeauty

If you follow me on Instagram (and you totally should), you may be aware that I was recently accepted into Althea Angels – a beauty blogging community that was recently started by Althea. I have purchased from them before (see my previous haul here) and I’m really, really happy with their service so I was more than happy to be recommending them to my readers. Being part of this group is really exciting because the company is now actively giving special offers and opportunities for us writers and reviewers. Without any pressure at all to speak positively about their products, they are simply supporting the industry and I think that that’s a really great thing!

So, as part of this, I recieved a package maybe a week or two ago as part of my ‘acceptance’ – this is the Althea Angels welcome gift! I will be posting this at the same time as my Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Review, so this is just a brief one to show off everything that I recieved.

Before I get into this post, I also want to wish Althea a special Happy Birthday! They have just celebrated their third birthday and I really want to congratulate them for not only establishing an amazing online store and service, but also being able to have such a great global reach. Yay!

Review: Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil & Foam (Neogen)

Neogen Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam and Oil Kbeauty Review

This product was provided to me by Neogen for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

You might remember that I did a review of Neogen’s Real Cica Pad a while back and really enjoyed the product. For today, I’ll be returning to that line and writing about their Micellar Cleansing Oil and the Micellar Cleansing Foam. Both of these cleansers are part of their Real Cica line, which targets both hydration and soothing for problem or sensitive skin – I’ve had good results from using Centella Asiatica products (and Cica is a version of it) so I’m pretty excited for this.

People who follow me on Instagram (or know me IRL) will know that I wear a lot of waterproof make up almost every day. It may not necessarily be heavy on my skin, but because of my allergies and being out for long hours, I will generally stick to long lasting products – foundation, eyeshadows, mascara, liner and even super heavy duty lip tints (on special days). For this reason, double cleansing is an essential part of my skincare routine and I can’t go a day without using at least an oil cleanser.

It’s perfect, because these products that Neogen sent me had essentially completed my two step cleansing routine. I’ll discuss both of the products (and packaging) below, before delving into my own opinions on them individually. And, let’s go!

Review: Micro Settingfit Cushion (Moonshot)

StyleKorean Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 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 used to have a really big hoarding issue with cushions and, while my collection is still rather substantial, I feel like I haven’t been reviewing them as much lately (only one so far this year). However, when I saw this new release (the Micro Settingfit Cushion) from Moonshot come up as a pre-order on the StyleKorean website, I was really keen to try it. Their Microfit Cushion is one that I really adore and use often for touch ups, and I’ve been a fan of their brand since I first came across them. This is advertised with BlackPink’s Lisa as the ‘face’ of the product (and is called the Lisa Cushion, just like the Microfit cushion was GD) and was initially available for pre-order on StyleKorean.

The Micro Settingfit Cushion is now available for purchase on the website for USD$22.99, discounted from the full price of USD$33.60 and is available in two shades – 101 (Ivory) and 201 (Beige). I got the lighter shade, as I typically wear a shade 21 in most Korean cushions, but from my experience with the other Moonshot cushion, I think that the 201 would have been the most natural fit actually. However, I usually like to use a brighter tone anyway.

So, if you’re interested in buying this product, check out the StyleKorean website but otherwise, here’s my review!
