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.

Etude House Soon Jung Panthensoside 5 Cica Sleeping Pack – Review

This mask was released during the period when Korean brands were introducing cica lines.

A little goes… Read More Etude House Soon Jung Panthensoside 5 Cica Sleeping Pack – 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.

Rohto Mentholatum Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

This sunscreen makes me very happy, especially after two recent failures, because it does what it says on the box. Let me start by saying that this product has been repackaged. It’s the same formula but in a sky-blue bottle instead of a yellow one. Don’t confuse it with a new sunscreen in a pink… Read More Rohto Mentholatum Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

SVR SUN SECURE Multi-Resistant Ultra-Matt Gel SPF 50+ – Review

Well, SVR released a new sunscreen aimed at oily skin types this year – SVR Sun Secure Multi-resistant Ultra-Matt Gel SPF 50+ (that’s a long name).

Cure Natural Aqua Gel & Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream – Review

Cure’s Natural Aqua Gel is one of the most known products amongst Asian beauty lovers. I think it’s the product that initiated the cult of peeling gels. If you haven’t heard about it yet, soon you will. The other one, Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream was a complete novelty for me, I’d had no idea… Read More Cure Natural Aqua Gel & Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream – Review
