Vichy IDEAL SOLEIL Pocket Ultra Light SPF 50 – Review

I don’t know what is going on at L’Oréal’s laboratories, but it seems like nothing good. Here’s a review of another light sunscreen, this time by Vichy.  The product contains exclusively chemical filters, as all L’Oréal sunscreens, it’s formulated with Mexoryls. It also has alcohol and fragrance, the latter in a tiny amount.  European sunscreens… Read More Vichy IDEAL SOLEIL Pocket Ultra Light SPF 50 – Review

CosRx Light Fit Real Water Toner To Cream – Review

When I first saw this product, it reminded me of the Bio-Essence Hydra Tri-Action Mask, which was quite popular a few years ago. Mainly it was because both products have an exciting dew-creating gimmick. Technically, when you apply either of the two products, water droplets are supposed to create on the surface of your skin,… Read More CosRx Light Fit Real Water Toner To Cream – Review

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.

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

Avon Anew Clinical Defend & Repair Advanced Hydration Overnight Mask – 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.

Here’s what Avon say about it: The unique gel formula is… Read More Avon Anew Clinical Defend & Repair Advanced Hydration Overnight Mask – Review

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
