Personally, I think that sunscreen is one of the most underdone steps in our skincare routine. Everyone knows how important it is, but we are often mistaken about how much we are actually doing. There’s a misconception that our foundations, which mostly contain some level of SPF now, is sufficient sun protection – but it’s really not. Whether you are going to the beach or just staying indoors with your computer, you should be using specialised sun care.
Admittedly, I didn’t use sunscreen at all when I was a teenager. I had an allergic reaction once so figured that was it – but I was absolutely wrong, The issue that I had in the past was that many would be heavy on my skin, clogging pores and causing break outs – so the question is: What’s a good sunscreen? Where should you start?
Today, I’m going to be looking at six different Korean sunscreens and discussing the pro’s and con’s for all of them. Of course, this review will be written purely in my own perspective and with my skin type in mind, so I would recommend doing some research yourself too!
All of these were kindly gifted to me by Stylevana – and they’re all available on their website. If you’ve found something you like, hop over there to make an order. Valid until the end of November, you can also get 10-15% off your order with my code INF10STELLAR (excluding weekend deals and instant offers).
And… let’s get into it!
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.
New products and deliveries are always so exciting for me – so yes, I was super keen when this package from Stylevana arrived. I was starting to feel overwhelmed for a while but since pulling back on my spending and on some PR in the past few months, it’s given me more of a chance to enjoy what I do (and work at my own pace).
This haul is a new collaboration for me! Stylevana is an online store that specialises in Asian beauty – they carry products from Korea, Japan and even Taiwan. The latter two are less talked about because they’re harder to access online, so I’m glad that there’s a new source for them! Aside from the big range of products, Stylevana also offers free shipping for orders over USD$55.
From now until the end of November, you can also get 10-15% off your order with my code INF10STELLAR (excluding weekend deals and instant offers since they are already on sale).
So, read on if you’re keen to see what I received! I’ll be putting my initial thoughts into this post rather that full on reviews (especially for the Logically, Skin Serum) since I think that I’ll need to use that much more extensively to give proper insight. Here goes!
We all love eyeshadow. Well, correction: I love eyeshadow. I personally own quite a lot of different formulas, colours and finishes. My palettes are stacked up and my single shadows (those which haven’t been depotted) have a serious need for some sorting. When I first started getting into make up, I was more into buying single shadows than anything because I felt that I didn’t need all of the colours in a palette. However, will time going by, I’ve found that these sets are a lot easier to keep around and – in addition – one should contain a well considered and varied selection that can create a good range of looks. At the moment, these are the characteristics that I look for when I’m using a palette:
- Flexible colour/formula range
- Soft and blend-able formula
- Strong pigmentation
- No creasing or fading
Since I do wear eyeshadow so often, there have been a few that I’ve really loved but also many that I don’t vote so well. For this current one, the Wine Eyeshadow Palette with Labiotte – a Korean brand that has gotten really popular recently for their wine themed packaging and formulas, I went into testing with the above points in mind and found that they have both strengths and weaknesses which would make it most suitable for those who like soft, Asian inspired make up looks.
