Hey K Beauties!
Today I want to share my quick, short reviews on 8 different products that I’ve used for the past 4 months. I bought the products at StyleKorean back in January – check out this post for details on my shopping experience at the site.
Illiyoon Fresh Moisture Lip and Eye Remover
I will definitely buy this product again. It works great to thoroughly cleanse eye and lip makeup, not being greasy. Price is a huge plus. You can easily get a 100ml bottle at $5~6, and a 300ml one at $15, with promotions. Shop at Olive Young.
Innisfree Skinny Microcara Zero #01 Black
To its name, it has super skinny applicator which enables controlling the amount of mascara you want to apply. However, it feels too thin and maybe too subtle for me. I end up using the applicator multiple times and I guess I’m too lazy to repeat that. But you know what? It is PERFECT for using on under eyelashes! Shop at Stylevana.
Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner
I’m always hunting for exfoliants of any type from liquids to masks. I had seen some compelling reviews on this product so I had a high hope. Maybe too high. I believe it mildly helped to reduce the whiteheads on my nose area, but not as dramatic as I read from those reviews. Anyone knows the best product to remove whiteheads? Shop at Olive Young.
Missha Glow Tension SPF50+ PA+++ #21 Vanilla
I would say this product is neither outstanding nor bad. It’s just in the middle, average. It was more matte than I expected from its name. But it definitely didn’t dry out my skin. Shop at Stylevana.
Rovectin Cica Care Balm
Since now I’m more used to the skincare products with no fragrance, first I was surprised by its strong, rather artificial scent. This gave me a bad first impression, to be honest. It’s baby pink color wasn’t a good signal either. However, I found out that there’s no fragrant nor coloring agent at all. Its ingredient list looks really nice, in fact.
It is not as thick as I expected from its name (since it includes the word ‘balm’) so I enjoy mixing it with my everyday moisturizer (illiyoon Ceramide Ato Lotion). This combination has worked pretty well in soothing and moisturizing. I could especially see the result on the days I used exfoliants or when I did face massage with Guasha. It helped mitigate redness, heat, or any type of skin irritation. I’ll probably buy this again. Shop at Olive Young.
Clio Sharp So Simple Waterproof Pencil Liner #01 Black
There was a reason for its fame. I really love this pencil liner! The thickness of the pencil is just right – not too think, not too thin – the color is clean and clear. And it lasts until the moment you apply the eye makeup remover. It doesn’t smudge at all. The only downside is that it runs out so fast! I finished using this product only in a couple of months with the daily usage. This is the only reason I took out one star. Besides that, it became my top 3 eyeliner! Shop at Olive Young
Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil #Espresso Brown
This product is easy to apply and smooth. Good to color or fill the brow naturally. Nice quality considering its price! (~$3) Shop at Stylevana.
Ample:n, VCShot Oxygen Peel
I’ve never heard about this product before so was a little bit hesitant to try it. But the price was so appealing – it was under $1 with the promotion (per sheet) and I always love trying new exfoliating products. So I bought two sheets. Wow. It really worked in removing the whiteheads and in overall face exfoliation. It tingled a little bit after use, so I put a thick layer of illiyoon Ceramide Ato Lotion afterwards. The next day? My face was GLOWING. My sister asked me what I did to my face when we face-timed! The only caveat is that like all the other exfoliants, it doesn’t last long – about a week or so for me. I think still a week is great and will definitely re-purchase this. Shop at StyleKorean.
Rom&nd, Best Tint Edition #2 Cool Tone Pick
I had such a high expectation on this tint set as it was my first Rom&nd product, and I knew that it has a solid reputation around the makeup products, especially for the ones who have cool skin tones – I consider myself as one of them. I’ve been using these for about 4 months and honestly think they’re so so. Color’s actually not impressive, just normal. And it doesn’t last that long than I expected. MAC matte lipsticks remain the favorite lip products for me. Shop at Stylevana.
