First impression review

I received this sunscreen as a gift and wasn't expecting much. Boy was I wrong. The texture was divine! Like whipped cream that glided onto face into a satiny finish while giving my skin a slightly brighter natural tint. It was slightly dewy at first like a moisturizer but that faded into a matte look minutes later. It felt like moisturizer, and half an hour …

As far as broad spectrum light skin feel cheap sunscreen goes, this is one of the best ones available. One of my favorite bloggers mywomenstuff liked how long lasting the uv protection feels on her face so I purchased it, unlike Biore and the cheap Shiseido Senka. I got it for around 10 USD for 80g outside the US.

Application
.Looks like a cream but spreads into an oil free …

Sunscreen - Paula's Choice - CALM Redness Relief SPF30 Mineral Moisturizer N/O

The highlight of this sunscreen out of all the other sunscreens I've tried is how soothing it feels. It contains a mix of good plant extracts like tea, licorice, chamomile and algae that provide an antioxidant, hydrating and soothing boost to skin. It is both watery and creamy when it comes out of the tube but once you rub it in, it doesn't feel greasy. You don't feel like you are …Read more

First impression review

I found this in a shop in HK and became awestruck at its ingredients. Out of all the non-exfoliating body lotion, this is one of the best body lotion that can even double as a very good face moisturizer. This is a better version of Cerave PM. It contains niacinamide, tranexemic acid, boswellia, licorice, ceramide complex - same as the one in cerave, protein …

This is my HG lip balm. I use the German original. I heard lanolin was great for dry lips so I got this which contains lanolin alcohol (not alcohol, mainly cholesterol) and Lansinoh lanolin to compare. I considered Aquaphor but it's more expensive where I live so I got Nivea instead.

Application
-Both are easy to apply on lips. They are thick but just a quick rub will get …

First impression review

Context
Finally I've gotten my hands on the much-hyped K-beauty essence, and I love it! The reason I got this is astragalus, the main ingredient in this essence toner, is a nutritious herb that hydrates (due to its polysaccharides), protects cells from free radicals and delays cellular death, and nourishes skin (due to its variety of minerals …

I found this peeling gel during my small shop hunt. Since it's so cheap, and I have never used a peeling gel, and it's a Cosme winning product, and my face could use some additional exfoliation, I bought it. I'm no expecting a miracle product, just to test how well this helps to remove dry flakes on my skin.

Application
-Translucent gel
-When I rub it into my …

Pros

7 months ago

Pros
-Removes blackheads.
-pH 5.5

-Also includes a couple of plant extracts including tea tree oil. Not a must for my cleanser since everything goes down the drain in the end. Not sure how much anti oxidants it contain though. They might help neutralize free radicals in tap water.
-Cheap for a facial cleanser

Cons
-If you apply it …

I ran out of Laneige skin refiner moisture and I want to try a different toner/essence so I got this as a toner to be used before actives to increase absorption. I am drawn to its simple but effective list of ingredients.

From various sources, ingredients that stand out to me:
-betaine: humectant that helps cells retain water even in a dry environment. solvent for certain …
