Abbazia di San Miniato al Monte Crema Mani / Hand Cream – Review

Florence is known for its antique pharmacies offering various goods from perfumes to skincare. This hand cream comes from the gift shop of the Abbey of St. Minias on the Mountain (it. Abbazia di San Miniato al Monte), which is home to one of the oldest temples in Florence the Basilica of St. Minias on… Read More Abbazia di San Miniato al Monte Crema Mani / Hand Cream – 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. Despite that, I like this sunscreen, and I am willing to repurchase it next year and let me tell you why.  This sunscreen contains a mixture of chemical filters and zinc oxide. Let me tell you upfront that… Read More Kanebo Allie Extra UV Facial Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ – 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. By the way, in some markets, it’s also called Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask. Here’s what Avon say about it: The unique gel formula is… Read More Avon Anew Clinical Defend & Repair Advanced Hydration Overnight Mask – 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

Estee Lauder Nutritious Micro-Algae Pore Minimizing Hydra Lotion – Review

I usually don’t shop from Estee Lauder, they don’t carry many products that catch my attention, but this one is amazing. I notice quite a lot of inspiration from Asian beauty in this product, and let me explain to you why. Estee Lauder’s description of the product: Sheer fresh moisture without excess shine. Supercharges skin… Read More Estee Lauder Nutritious Micro-Algae Pore Minimizing Hydra Lotion – Review

COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask – Review

This is another forgotten review — the super popular CosRX’s honey mask.  It’s a hydrating mask that is also supposed to brighten and soothe the skin. It’s not overloaded with ingredients; the two main elements are propolis extract and natural beeswax, there’s no actual honey in the product. It contains glycerine, dimethicone, and hyaluronic acid.… Read More COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask – Review
