Review: White in Whipping Cream (G9 Skin)

G9 Skin Berrisom White in Whipping Cream Review BB Cosmetic

When I came back from Korea, I’d brought back so much that I knew my blog would be back logged for ages – and I’m right because I just finished drafting around thirty five new review posts, and that isn’t even everything yet. It’s a bit daunting to look at that number, but I figured that there’s no better to time kick back in so here I am!

The first review I’ll be doing is for a product that I was actually gifted by BB Cosmetic. I met up with one of their managers, Elle, while I was in Seoul and she was so, so sweet. We had some trouble finding each other in Hongdae because I didn’t have a phone to properly contact her, but we finally met, had dinner and just chatted in general. She gave me a few products from the company to review, so I’m really happy that I got to test this.

I actually didn’t come across G9 Skin in Korea, most likely because they are very new. The brand is a sister brand (I think) of Berrisom, both of which aren’t exactly road shop brands so you need to find a stockist for them. Luckily for us though, they are very easily accessible online.

Review: Pink Nail Treatment Pack (Koelf)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare Petitfee

This is (for now) the last in my series of Koelf masks so, first off, I want to thank RoseRoseShop for sending all of these over for me to test. Previous to this, I’ve never actually used anything from Koelf before. Their products definitely have their pro and cons, but it’s great to see them for myself!

Recently, I’ve tested heel patches (on my mother), elbow patches (on myself) and cleaners and creams from their sister brand Petitfee. To finish us off, I’m going to go back to the Koelf brand with their pink nail treatment pack. I expect this to be very similar to the previous hydrogel packs, though I don’t think I’ve used anything similar for my nails before.

Before using this, I thought that my nails were in a pretty good condition but – let me tell you – you have no idea how dry they are until after they are hydrated! Lets give this a shot. On with the review!

Review: D-Off Phyto Foam Cleanser (Petitfee)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare Petitfee

This was a strange product to me and, honestly, I didn’t expect that it’d be strange because… it’s a foam cleanser. I really didn’t expect anything all that different but let me tell you that this one definitely baffled me for a while. This product is from Petitfee and is called the D-Off Phyto Foam Cleanser (which, to me, sort of sounds like it’s swearing but it means dust off), a cleanser made of natural mint leaf and seven herbal ingredients – the foaming aspect is also meant to be fermented nutrient rice foam. It’s purpose is to penetrate pores, cleanse and moisturise.

To be honest, the overall description of this product was quite confusing to me. Perhaps it’s because I don’t approach natural products in such a in depth manner usually, but I still went into testing this product with an open mind! When I basically took from the description is that the foam cleanser uses natural ingredients in order to both cleanse and hydrate your skin – sounds pretty good to me.

I was sent this to review by RoseRoseShop, where you can get a bottle for $4.16 USD (full price is $11.71). It’s a good price for a good sized bottle so, provided that it works, I think it’ll be great for those more conscious about the ingredients in the products they’re using. Read on for my full review!

Review: Beauty Moisturizer EX (VDL)

bb cosmetic review kbeauty korean makeup skincare vdl beauty moisturizer moisturiser ex

And so started my mini love affair with VDL. Prior to this, the only VDL product I had used was their shading liquid – this one hadn’t impressed me very much as both the colour and thin fluid didn’t allow me much control. However, I was contacted by BB Cosmetic recently and they sent me a sample of the Beauty Moisturizer. I gladly accepted, as I was really wanting to given VDL another chance and, goodness, I am glad I did.

I started testing this one before I left for Korea and actually made up my mind about it really quickly – it was very convincing. I actually purchased a bunch of other products from VDL while I was over there too, so there will be more reviews from this brand to come.

For now, read on for my thoughts on this product. You can pick yours up from BB Cosmetic, and don’t forget to use my code for 8% off your purchase: QAL3F6ZA8YZ

With that, it’s on with the review!

Review: Heating Gel Pore Brush (Tosowoong)

My Korean Makeup Kbeauty Review Tosowoong Heating Gel Pore Brush

Just to clarify, I had really high hopes for this product so even though I say that I’m kind of disappointed, it isn’t because it’s a terrible product. It works, just not how I wanted it to.

I had never used anything from Tosowoong before but had heard really great things about the brand so, when I came across this on My Korean Makeup, I decided that I had to try it. The product is a pore cleanser with a gel product and an attached brush, making usage fast and simple. I had actually searched it up online as well and hadn’t found any other reviews for it, so I was hoping that I would discover a new, wonderful product for you guys to use but… unfortunately, not.

Read on for my experience and thoughts about this Tosowoong product. I received this product to review from My Korean Makeup and you can check out their website to purchase this (or anything else).
