Review: Secret Key Rose Starting Treatment Essence

Product: Secret Key Rose Starting Treatment Essence

What I like about it:

Amazing amazing product! The glass bottle is heavy and luxurious. The essence is wonderful, it really refines your skin texture and makes you glow! It is also moisturizing so if you have oily skin, two layers of this might be enough for daytime.

The rose edition is an extra nice touch! I first heard about this product from Gothamista on Youtube and she also recommends the rose version.

I love this product so much that dare I say it's almost an alternative to SKII.

It is a great layering product, truly a first step "starting essence", it pairs well with any moisturizer. I also use it on my body sometimes, providing lightweight hydration and it also works well to soothe your skin after shaving.

What I dislike about it:

You do have to be careful with this glass bottle. But it's really an amazing product, and the huge bottle will last you months!

Review: Manyo Factory Galactomy Niacin Essence

Product: Manyo Factory Galactomy Niacin Essence

What I like about it:

Dropper and solid packaging. The formula is thin and watery and goes on easily on the skin.

Well-formulated product with galactomy niacin essence which does what it advertises, improves kin texture and brightening.

A really good product and its good size that can last you awhile. Quite a fan of Manyo Factory products, and their face washes are amazing as well! They have a deep pore cleansing foam that is incredible at deep cleaning yet gentle at the same time.

What I dislike about it:

Can't say anything negative about the product, except you do need an additional moisturizer with it. The product itself is very lightweight so it's easy to layer under a moisturizer and makeup. A great skin product for an affordable price, plus you can get it on Amazon here.

Review: Leegeehaam Grow Vita Propolis Ampoule

Product: Leegeehaam Grow Vita Propolis Ampoule

What I like about it:

Propolis extract and Centella extract are the key active ingredients. Propolis nourishes dull and tired skin and Centella soothes the skin. 

The dropper packaging works well and the smooth silky formula feels amazing on the skin.

What I dislike about it:

The size is tiny!! It's 15ml, about the size of your finger! This was a bit of a surprise to me when I received my online order. The good point is that it's great for travel.

The formula feels luxurious on the skin, and the yellow liquid feels like gold in a bottle, and while the product is moderately moisturizing and soothing, I would say overall the product is only delivers average results.

Review: Neogen Super Shiny Aqua Capsule Mask

Product: Neogen Super Shiny Aqua Capsule Mask

What I like about it:

This is such an innovative product, you break the capsule and it releases its contents into the sheet mask which you then use like a regular mask. This is to ensure the 'freshness' of the product.

The mask works great, it is hydrating & brightening.

What I dislike about it:

It is slightly gimmicky but the entire brand is really interesting with fun ingredients like truffle and their knit masks are also really unique.

Overall, a super fun mask that I would definitely recommend as a gift. The hydrating properties are great as well, and the Neogen line is a very good skincare line with brilliant masks.

Review: L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser x3 Serum

Image result for loreal x 3 serum'
Product: L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser x3 Serum

What I like about it:

The packaging is amazing, hygienic, compact and luxurious feeling.

The serum has the consistency of a cream, it is very hydrating. There is some slight glitter in the cream which makes you look more glowy, this works well with makeup, but is something I don't like with my skincare.

What I dislike about it:

I would say that this is a hydrating serum but the anti-aging effects are average.

The price point is good for a serum.

Review: Etude House 0.2mm Air Therapy Mask

Product: Etude House 0.2mm Air Therapy Mask

What I like about it:

Absolutely amazing mask, the extra thin and soft mask "0.2mm" really works to help the product penetrate your skin.

The mask is affordable and address all sorts of skin concerns with the different flavours.

Unique variations include Damask Rose, Lotus, Ceramide, Snail and Collagen.

What I dislike about it:

Easily available, very affordable and works well.

I personally like and enjoy Etude House products, however if you have tried their skincare products and don't find them suitable for you, another brand's masks may be more suitable.

Review: Kohaku Hada Toner

Product: Kohaku Hada Toner

What I like about it:

I like the consistency, watery, which makes it easy to layer. The amber extracts also really intrigue me. Kohaku is also a great brand for sensitive skin, free of parabens, fragrance etc.

What I dislike about it:

This is useful as an extra step (or for those who are fans of the Korean 7 skin step method) but I don't find it particularly hydrating and there is a slightly sticky finish.

Perhaps a better option is Hada Labo if you are looking for something more hydrating, or Pyunkang Yul Essence toner for something equally gentle and nourishing.
