Kanebo Allie Extra UV Facial Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

This sunscreen is not the most cosmetically elegant product out there; there are certainly better options available.

Let me tell you upfront that… Read More Kanebo Allie Extra UV Facial Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

Paula’s Choice C15 Super Booster – Review

This vitamin C serum, like many others on the market, is inspired by SkinCeuticals’ CE Ferulic Serum. However, as this is PC’s product, the formula is alcohol-& fragrance-free and loaded with skin-benefiting ingredients. The main ingredients of this serum are: ascorbic acid (15%), ferulic acid, and vitamin E. Other, noteworthy components include hyaluronic acid, bisabolol,… Read More Paula’s Choice C15 Super Booster – Review

Avon Anew Vitamin C Radiance Maximising Serum – Review

This product is Avon’s response to the hype for vitamin C serums, which started a few years ago. In short, it’s not that exciting.  This vitamin C serum includes the most potent form of vitamin C, namely ascorbic acid, at the concentration of 10%. It’s problematic to stabilise ascorbic acid and keep it from oxidising… Read More Avon Anew Vitamin C Radiance Maximising Serum – Review

Lancôme UV Expert Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA++++ (2019 Version) – Review

This sunscreen is the 2019 version of the UV Expert Aqua Gel. I’ve picked up the gel version, as I’d thought a gel sunscreen would be light and more suitable for hot, summery weather. Similarly to the Lancôme UV Expert Milky Bright, which I reviewed a few months ago, this product provides high protection against… Read More Lancôme UV Expert Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA++++ (2019 Version) – Review

Etude House Soon Jung Panthensoside 5 Cica Sleeping Pack – Review

This mask was released during the period when Korean brands were introducing cica lines. Just like most of the other products, this one also contains cantella asiatica – the ingredient that we all love and look out for.  This product has a thick and creamy, gel-like consistency, but it absorbs pretty well. A little goes… Read More Etude House Soon Jung Panthensoside 5 Cica Sleeping Pack – Review

I like this mask – it does what it says on the box, and it’s relatively affordable. I have gone through a few jars of this mask since its launch.

TARGET PRO BY WATSONS Essential Hot Cleansing Gel – Review

This cleanser is from Watsons’ Target Pro line, which is supposed to be a clinical/pro one with a lot of eye-catching ingredients. The products are meant to treat the skin and strengthen its barrier – that’s the general concept of the line. There are three ingredients written on the tube ‘Diamond Sirt, Ceramide and Thermal… Read More TARGET PRO BY WATSONS Essential Hot Cleansing Gel – Review

Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF 35 PA+++ – Review

I think this is one of the oldest Korean sunscreens; I had been postponing buying this sunscreen for years, as I knew it would be just like many other mineral-only sunscreens – drying and ashy.  This sunscreen contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, not micronised, as well as iron oxides that help to protect from… Read More Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF 35 PA+++ – Review
