For those who are passionate about sustainability (and vegan, cruelty-free skincare), then this kbeauty brand will be right up your alley! Toun28 is a relatively new brand, having launched back in 2016, and take a fully sustainable approach to their packaging. They even teamed up with StyleKorean for the Ugly Soap Project (a Green Week special) where they have made their ‘soap scraps’, or less than perfectly shaped ‘seconds’, available for just under a dollar – cutting down waste and saving you money.

Toun28 is now available at StyleKorean, and their prices are pretty good too. Today I’ll be reviewing their pH Balancing Toner, Lip Balm L2 (Unscented), Trouble Care for Sensitive Skin and Trouble Care for Dehydrated-Oily Skin. I had a bit of a mixed experience with these products, which I’ll discuss in depth, but I am still very impressed by Toun28 as a whole – and, of course, love their brand values.

Keen to try them out? Then let’s just right into this review!

Review: Cicapair Cream (Dr Jart+) vs Cica Cream (VT Cosmetics) Comparison

Kbeauty Skincare Comparison Review - Dr Jart+ Cicapair and VT Cosmetics Cica Cream

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.

Centella Asiatica, also known as Cica or Tiger Grass, is one of my all time favourite skincare ingredients – it’s pretty much a god send for sensitized or acne prone skin as it helps to calm and heal at the same time. I’ve used a lot of products formulated with Cica but, to be honest, I can never have enough! For this review, I will be doing something a little bit different and actually comparing two very popular Cica creams – the VT Cosmetics Cica Cream (which I have previously reviewed here but will discuss again) and the Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Cream.

Both of these products are currently available on StyleKorean, with the VT Cosmetics Cica Cream at USD$14.30 (on sale from USD$28.60) and the Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Cream at USD$25 (on sale from USD$42). Aside from the different price points, I also think that both of these have very different formulas that would be better for contrasting skin types – I have my personal preferences, of course, but you need to decide what’s best for you too!

So, before you make any decision on what to get – let’s get right into this review!

Review: Lip Bokki Edition (Romand)

Romand Dokbeokki Collection

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 know what you’re thinking – another Romand review? Honestly, I just couldn’t help it. As I had mentioned in the past, I’m a huge fan of the brand and I try to get their limited edition releases; and this Lip Bokki Edition set was just too cute to pass up! Rather than a full collection, this is a stand-alone set of mini lip products. It’s a good option for those who just want to try out the different formulas or as a cute gift (and would be especially great for people who love make up and Korean street food)!

This is going to be a fairly short review, as I mostly want to go through what is actually in this kit, but I wanted to get this up soon because – I believe – this collaboration is now discontinued. It is still available on StyleKorean but is likely not going to be restocked.

If you’re keen to pick this up, head on over there – the Lip Bokki Edition set is just USD$25.20 (on sale from USD$36), and is still available in either green or red packaging. And, lets get into this review!

Review: Better Than Palette in Pampas Garden and Mahogany Garden (Romand)

Romand Better Than Palette Kbeauty Makeup Review - Pampas Garden and Mahogany Garden

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’m actually consciously trying to spread out my Romand reviews but, to be honest, I’ve just completely fallen in love with this brand. Every time they release something new, it’s on my radar right away and I can’t relax until I’d gotten my hands on them. That’s exactly what happened with this one! I saw the Better Than Palette being teased on Instagram a week or do before the launch, so I’d been waiting for it – and now it’s here!

All of these are now available at StyleKorean for USD$23.10 (on sale from USD$33) so absolutely jump onto there if you want to pick these up! If the full 10 shade palette is a bit much for you, Romand also do wonderful quads (currently USD$14.40 and on sale from USD$18) called the Better Than Eyes.

I’ll be reviewing and sharing some swatches from the Pampas Garden and Mahogany Garden palette today so if they’re the ones you’re keen on… let’s get into it!

Review: Beach Muse Multi Eye Colour Palette (3CE)

StyleKorean 3CE Beach Muse Eye Palette 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.

Eyeshadow palettes are a personal weakness of mine and, when it comes to kbeauty make up, I really can’t pass up on 3CE! Created by the fashion brand Stylenanda, 3CE is especially well known for their colour cosmetics – their style is quite experimental so they often have very glittery or bright formulas which are harder to find in other brands. I’ve been a fan of their eyeshadows ever since I discovered their One Colour Eyeshadows, where they have pretty much the best matte orange that I have ever found in Korea, so I have a lot of confidence in their formulas.

The main criticism that I’ve had in the past has been the price point – however, this is much improved! The Beach Muse Multi Eye Colour Palette (which I will be reviewing today) is selling at StyleKorean for USD$31.90 (discounted from USD$45.60). It’s still more expensive than other Korean roadshop brands but, with a great formula, solid colour scheme and a strong brand image, I think that the premium price point makes sense.

If you want to get your hands on this palette, or anything else from 3CE really, pop on over to StyleKorean! But before all of that, lets get into this review.

Review: Be Original Edition – Hanbok Pt II (Romand)

Romand Hanbok Collection - See Through Melting Cheek and See Through Matte Tint - StyleKorean 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.

It’s no longer a secret that I’m a huge fan of Romand and have this urge to collect pretty much everything they release. In my last review of their Be Original Edition, I looked at their See Through Veilighter and Glasting Water Tints (which I still use and love on the regular). I was once again blown away by their concept execution and formulations, so I wanted to get a few more things from the collection… so here’s part two!

This time, I’ll be reviewing the See Through Melting Cheek and the See Through Matte Tint – the blushers are a whole new formula for the brand whilst the matte tints are pre-existing, but still new to me. In addition to this, there is also the Be Original Clear Cover Cushion and the Better Than Eyes.

These are all still available at StyleKorean but for a very limited time only – I’m not 100% sure on this but I think that the collaboration is finished now (or finishing soon) so it’s just while stocks last. In a big fan of Romand in general so… I would always be recommending these!

Review: Cica Care Collection (VT Cosmetics)

VT Cosmetics Cica Skincare Line Kbeauty Review StyleKorean - Cica Skin, Cica Cream, Soothing Mask, Sleeping Mask

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.

If you’re a fan of Centella Asiatica, then you’ll be very excited about the Cica Care Collection from VT Cosmetics! I was first introduced to the brand via their makeup but it didn’t exactly blow me away. I’ve been looking to give them a second chance though and I’m pleasantly surprised this time! This collection is all about Centella (also known as Cica) – it’s one of my favourite soothing skincare ingredients and I’m always working it into my routine.

The Cica Care Collection is actually quite extensive but I’ll be reviewing four products: the Cica Daily Soothing Mask, Cica Cream, Cica Skin and the VT Cica Sleeping Mask. All of these are available on the StyleKorean website but I would actually recommend checking out the main VT Cosmetics page instead – they are so many other products ranging from masks to sun care.

I’ve been using these products since December last year, so it’s been a decent amount of time now. Let’s get into this review!

Review: Be Original Edition – Hanbok (Romand)

Romand Hanbok Collection - Glasting Lip Tint and Highlighter - StyleKorean 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.

2020 was the year that I fell head over heels in love with Romand. I first tried them out in 2018 but they totally blew me away last year when they collaborated with one of my favourite Korean brands Neonmoon – you can check out my raving review of it here.

Of course they continued from strength-to-strength and, not long after that, I was completely taken by the Be Original Edition (also known as the Hanbok Collection)! This was a collaboration with the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation (K-Heritage), and is inspired by the beautiful textiles and elegance of the Hanbok. I’m a bit of a geek and I adore traditional Asian garments, so I loved the aesthetics and style of this. The design actually reminded me a lot of the Jeonju Hanok Village, where I visited quite a few years ago!

That being said, I did get onto this collection a bit late so I don’t have everything here. More products are available on the StyleKorean website though. For today, I’ll be reviewing the See Through Veilighter and the Glasting Water Tints. You can also find the See Through Melting Cheek, See Through Matte Tint and the Clear Cover Cushion (the blush has been quite raved out and I definitely want to check it out).

Make sure to check out the StyleKorean website to pick these up, but let’s get into this review first!

Brand Spotlight & Review: Huxley

Huxley StyleKorean Try me Review Me Kbeauty Skincare 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.

For people that follow me regularly (here or on Instagram), you will know that I do a lot of collaborations with StyleKorean – who are easily one of my favourite kbeauty stores to work with. They do a blogger program called the Try Me Review Me, which lets people trial and review different brands every month. If you’re a beauty lover or content creator, make sure that you’re following them on Instagram, which is where they typically announce these.

As soon as Huxley was announced, I jumped right onto this – I’m just so excited to dive back into their products. They left a great impression on me in the past and, even though it’s been at least a year since I tried something new from them, I was confident that they would do it again.

For this review, I’ll be reviewing the Oil Essence & Sahara Mask Set – this is available on StyleKorean for a limited time! All of the products are also available for purchase individually too but this set is a great gifting option for Christmas.

Jump onto StyleKorean if you’d like to check it out but, before that, let’s get into this review!

Review: Intensive Moist/Firming/Radiance Sauce Modeling Mascream (Neogen SUR.MEDIC+)

Neogen Surmedic Modeling Mascream Skincare 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’m a big fan of modeling masks and the ones that I’ll be sharing with you today are actually from a brand that is both new and familiar to me! SUR.MEDIC+ is a brand developed by Neogenlab, so you will often see their products listed under the Neogen brand too. They are a “personal skin concierge,” using the concept of skincare first aid to develop products that are effective, easy to use and accessible anywhere. Their products cater to a variety of skin concerns too, so there’s a lot of choose from!

The masks that I will be trying out today are called the Intensive Moist/Firming/Radiance Sauce Modeling Mascream – as you can tell from that awkward name, there are three different variants to target moisture, firming or radiance. I have been gradually testing these out but haven’t used all of them yet, so will put in product information and then add in individual reviews as I go.

These were gifted to me by StyleKorean to review, so pop over there if you want to check them out. They’re under the Neogen brand and are currently on sale for USD$8.80 (usually USD$11).

And now, let’s get into this review!
