Review – isoi Blemish Care Serum II | Does this top selling serum deserve its top spot?

isoi (pronounced like eye-so-eye) is a brand that I have reviewed before. I also used to buy and even repurchase their Blemish Care Serum again and again in my twenties as I felt that it helped improve my adult acne at the time. Recently, I repurchased it again after not having used it for several … Continue reading Review – isoi Blemish Care Serum II | Does this top selling serum deserve its top spot?

Quick Brand Overview: Dr Jart+ | Vital Hydra Solution (essence, sheet mask, moisturiser, gel moisturiser, sleeping pack)

Last year, Olive Young was having frequent sales, like pretty much any brand that is considered 'non-essential', I guess. Especially when it comes to more premium-priced brands like Dr Jart+, I am guessing that consumers are more sensitive to pricing nowadays. In a way, it's good for consumers I guess. We get to try more … Continue reading Quick Brand Overview: Dr Jart+ | Vital Hydra Solution (essence, sheet mask, moisturiser, gel moisturiser, sleeping pack)

Sleeping Pack and Wash Off Mask Empties (2020 Edition)

There are very few wash off or sleeping packs / overnight mask packs that capture my attention and my wallet. I'm from Honey (reviewed here) as well as Cell Fusion C's gimmicky yet effective bubble mask sachets (reviewed here) were outliers. None of today's masks bowled me over, though they were... nice, for the most … Continue reading Sleeping Pack and Wash Off Mask Empties (2020 Edition)

Review: Dr Jart+ Dermakeup Rejuvenating Beauty Balm in 001 Light (Silver Label)

So much ❤ for this BB! While I have reviewed Dr Jart's Dis-a-Pore Balm in the past - review right here - the review for their rejuvenating BB cream has been a long time coming. In part, this is due to me using less face makeup when the 'rona first started making its rounds; however, … Continue reading Review: Dr Jart+ Dermakeup Rejuvenating Beauty Balm in 001 Light (Silver Label)

Review: Dr Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution – Biome Essence | Microbiome Skincare – Hype or the Real Deal?

Review: Dr Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution (sheet mask)

Dr Jart has had a few duds for me in store as of late especially when it comes to sunscreen and mist products, however they are killing it at the sheet mask game still, even after all these years. For reference: previous Dr Jart sheet mask reviews: - Dr Jart+ Dermask- Dr Jart Ceramidin And … Continue reading Review: Dr Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution (sheet mask)

Review: Dr Jart+ Cicapair Serum + a Book Rec for Parents, Trainers and Teachers Alike

If you have been in Korea for a while, you will know how much Dr Jart+ is pushing their advertisements over here. In-store advertising and pop up counters, social media advertising, billboards, signs on buses and bus stops... they go hard! Some of my Korean friends have in fact commented on how they find their … Continue reading Review: Dr Jart+ Cicapair Serum + a Book Rec for Parents, Trainers and Teachers Alike

Review: isoi – 1st class Bulgarian Rose MoisturiZIP Intensive Skin Healer | Coming Up Roses?

isoi (Korean: 아이소이, pronounced like eye-soh-ee) is a brand that I have reviewed several times already - be it their mask, toner or serum. Generally speaking, in the past, I loved the brand for what it did for my skin; the only drawback is the pricing, which is definitely up there in the drugstore range … Continue reading Review: isoi – 1st class Bulgarian Rose MoisturiZIP Intensive Skin Healer | Coming Up Roses?

Review: A'Pieu – Mulberry Blemish Clearing Ampoule & Cream (set) | Does Hydration clear Blemishes? Plus, a Mini Rant & a Book Recommendation

In my never ending quest to heal that dreadful adult acne I talked about at length recently, I got this set on a whim as I was browsing the aisles at Lalavla, where the Barbie pink packaging of A'Pieu's (어퓨, pronounced <eoh--pyoo>) Blemish Clearing Ampoule and Cream (산뽕나무 잡티 앰플; 산뽕나무 잡티 크림) caught my … Continue reading Review: A'Pieu – Mulberry Blemish Clearing Ampoule & Cream (set) | Does Hydration clear Blemishes?

Review: Illiyoon – Ceramide Ato Lotion & Concentrate Cream (Gift Set) | Korean Skincare Products that Work

As detailed in my previous post about my current struggles with adult acne and the ensuing doctor's visit, my skin has been on freakout mode for quite some time now.
