This product was sent to me for review purposes.
It has been a while since I last tried something from G9Skin! They were still a relatively new brand back then and, from what I could see, searching for their footing in the kbeauty industry. Recently though, I think that they’ve been doing a bit of a rebranding and also pushing some new products. Just a few days ago, they sent me their new Self Aesthetics Magazine, which is a collection of their masks – they are also available for purchase individually, but this set is a good way to try everything out.
There is a lot in this set so I wanted to write a bit of an unboxing post (which I haven’t done much recently). Although this is technically just one product, I’ll be taking you through each individual mask in detail so you can decide whether buying the Self Aesthetics Magazine is worth it for you, or if it’s better to get some individual pieces.
The full kit is available on YesStyle for AUD$43.65 or you can also buy them in individual packs of 5 (which I will also link down below).
So, let’s get right into it!
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!
So you made have heard me yapping about this recently but I’ve joined a Korean beauty guru competition and it’s currently round 1!
For this, we had to post up a ‘haul’ video of some products that the company had sent to us and it would mean the world to me if you gave my video a watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xKlYNB8sqc
The judging system is 40% voters, 30% view count and 30% external content judges.
That being said, please help me out by voting for me on the website! You can vote up to 5 times a day and voting for round one is open from today (15th) until the 19th for this round. Here’s the link: http://kbeauty.stylekorean.com/…/…/gurus/gurus_2017/vote.php
If you vote 5 times a day for 5 days (I.e. 15th – 19th) then the company will also give you $10 store credit to use and I think there are more prizes up for grabs too!
I’m back with the second part of my Early Picker haul! Finally. Actually, I received this package not long after I published my first one (and you’ve likely seen a post on my Instagram about this incredibly sample pouch that they have) but I’ve been spreading things out but trying to get super active with posting again. Now, with this post, the main thing that I really wanted to show everyone was their sample pouch (which you can see below) but I figured that I should touch briefly on these products that they sent me too!
These are the April Skin Turn Up Color Treatment; it is essentially like a temporary hair colour or toner, which adds a gloss to either prelightened (recommended) or natural hair. These are actually fairly common here in Australia, but I find that not many Korean brands actually have these sorts of colours – which is strange because I think a lot of people in Asia like to experiment with fashion trends! The main difference between this and the usual hair toner that I use is that it’s actually a treatment for you hair, so it leaves your locks feeling especially soft and healthy after use as well.
I currently have the orange colour in my hair and I’m waiting for it to wash out to test others – so I will be posting a review on that soon! Early Picker was wonderful enough to send me ten boxes of these; two of each colour variant, so I’ll be testing them all out and also experimenting with some colour mixing too!
As a blogger, I feel like I am so lucky to be able to work with people who also love what I love – Asian beauty products and quality service. For this upcoming post, I have been sent a package from BB Cosmetic of some of their top selling products to review. While I will be leaving the real, in-depth information for the individual posts, this is going to be a review of my experience with BB Cosmetic in general (as well as showing you the goodies that I was sent).

I found BB Cosmetic through another blogger’s instagram posts and, after checking their website, was immediately drawn to the wide variety of brands that they carry. Of course, once again, they don’t have everything in every brand, but I find that they seem to carry a lot of trendier brands or even smaller brands that are not as easily accessible internationally (more expensive brands like VDL come to mind, as well as Laniege). When I emailed them, I spoke to Chloe who was very polite and helpful with great English skills too! After talking to her, I expressed my interest in products from 3CE, Too Cool For School and VDL – brands which I saw often in Korea but not so much now that I am back in Sydney.
I’m so excited because, after talking to them, Chloe said that they would be sending out these products for me to test!
So aside from these really exciting things that they’ve sent me, let’s talk about their website and services (the product reviews can come later).
