Okay so here’s the thing it was not love at first try lol ๐Ÿ˜… coz it’s my first time trying a mask that warms and it made me feel a bit uncomfortable. I’m a bit afraid at first that it’ll burn my face. ๐Ÿคฃ But as I’m constantly using this for quite some time now I get used to it, in fact it’s my fave mask to date. I love the feeling of the luxurious experience you get at the comfort of your own home. I reach for this whenever my skin feels dull and tired and this gave me a really nice glow. Tho I don’t think it’s hydrating enough for my skin I love the fact that it made my skin smooth and plump looking. However as I much as I want to get the full size it’s just too pricey for me and its way beyond my budget. But then again I’m glad I’m able to try this, good thing I got this on a steal price when I bought the Sweet green set.

Ceramides – help reinforce our skinโ€™s barrier and increase hydration giving us plumper, smoother, firmer-feeling skin with fewer visible lines and wrinkles too.

What ceramides do?

Think of ceramides as the mortar between bricks if the bricks are your skin cells. Ceramides help hold skin together by forming a protective layer that limits moisture loss and protects against visible damage from pollution and other environmental stressors. In addition, Ceramides even more than retinol, niacinamide, and peptides are one of the anti-aging โ€œpowerhousesโ€ responsible for supporting skinโ€™s dynamic nature. Two particular ceramide precursors phytosphingosine and sphingolipids actually help skin make more ceramides.

REVIEW:
I’ve been using this Ceramide cream for a month now and I’m ready to share my thoughts on this product. Okay so here’s the thing it was not love at first try coz I really find this very thick at first. When you apply the cream you can see the little capsules but you can’t feel it on your skin, at first it was too tricky for me to use it in my everyday morning routine. But as I’m eagerly wanting to love this product I found the best way on how it’ll work on my skin. What I do is get a small amount of the product and warm up it on my hands and gently apply it on my face and neck. And yes it does the job, I find my skin more plump and moisturized. It doesn’t feel heavy, greasy and tacky too. I think this cream is really suited for dry or combination skintype and best to use during colder days as this give you enough hydration that your skin needs. Overall I did enjoy using this and glad that I didn’t experience any irritation on this product.

Brand Highlight Coxir

COXIR a new beauty brand, made by NOKSIBCHO which has maintained strict principle of Quality First for the last 30 years.

Brand Slogan
Good. Simple. Trendy

COXIR [kosiหr]- mainly made of pure vegetable ingredients that are less stimulated to the skin, keeping the skin healthy and balanced.

I’ll be reviewing two out of three products that I’m currently using from Coxir. It’s the Coxir Black Snail Collagen Toner and Black Snail Collagen Eye Cream (products won from a giveaway last year

BLACK SNAIL COLLAGEN TONER – containing the ingredients ofย snail, collagenย andย black foods
for protecting skin from dryness by maintaining moisture level and providing luminance to skin.

Notable Ingredients
Snail mucin – gives skin elasticity to help improve and manage aging skin
Collagen – provides moisture to help moisturize the skin
Adenosine – it has an ingredient that helps improve wrinkles
Black Soybean Extract – contain antioxidants that promoteย skin glow.

Review – This toner comes in a plastic packaging and has 150ml of the product. I appreciate the simple packaging, tho I love a toner that comes in glass packaging but I find this travel friendly as its not prone to breakage. It has a very watery consistency with a subtle scent. I like doing 2-3skins and it absorbs pretty good IMO. This gave me a nice glow and made my skin soft and supple too. So far I’m liking it and will continue using this up to the last drop.

BLACK SNAIL COLLAGEN EYE CREAM – formulated withย black bean, snailย andย collagen to bring more youthful and luminous appearance to delicate eye area.

Notable Ingredients: same as for the toner – Snail Mucin, Collagen, Adenosine, Black Soybean Extract plus the Niacinamide

Review – This eye cream comes in a simple tube type packaging with 30ml. of the product. It has a very stringy consistency similar to a regular snail skincare product that you’ve seen around. Same as the toner it has a subtle scent also. I’m not quite fond of this eye cream coz I find it a bit heavy for my eyes plus it takes time too absorbed and has a tacky finish IMO. Haven’t seen any brigthening effect too even though it has niacinamide. And too bad this gave me milia seeds after using this for quite a while, so its a pass for me.

2ndesign First Cleansing Oil Pure and Fresh

Features:
โœ”๏ธMild and Refreshing cleansing oil which keeps your skin moisturized and vitalized
โœ”๏ธAll contents EWG Green grade, does not contain 20 harmful substances
โœ”๏ธOne step cleansing oil offers you comfortable cleansing
Source: http://m.jolse.com/product/2ndesign-first-cleansing-oil-pure-fresh-200ml/17526/#none

Notable Ingredients:
Sunflower oil – helps retain moisture; it’s high in Vitamin E, A, C and D as well. Apply directlyย to the skin as an antioxidantย facial oil
Jojoba seed oil – is naturally gentle and non-irritating, making it perfect for basically everyย skin type; it balances oilyย skin, soothes sensitiveย skin, hydrates dryย skinย and helps can even be used on acne and breakouts.
Macademia seed oil – is light, non-greasy and easily absorbed, which makes it suitable for use on acne-prone skin as it won’t clog pores.
Rosehip oil – help fight against age spots and wrinkles.
Bergamot oil – ย is a natural cleanser. It’s particularly goodย forย oilyย skin , helping to unclog pores and balance sebum levels.ย 

Packaging – Simple yet sturdy, see through plastic pump bottle with safety lock making it spill proof. A bit bulky coz this bottle has 200ml of the product.
Scent – has faint earthy scent, if you know what I mean. (not a fan of the scent but I got use to it as I am using it every night)
Texture – a very watery cleansing oil

Review:
It’s my first time trying a cleansing oil, tho cleansing oil is not my thing coz I’m a cleansing balm fan. I appreciate this one because it’s effective and easy to use. I use this daily at my night routine as my first cleanser, 1-2pumps is enoughfor my face and neck. Though I’m not a fan of the consistency coz it’s too watery for my liking I like the fact that it effectively removes light make up and sunscreen off my face. I like that its lightweight, emulsifies well when added with water, leaves no oily residue and doesn’t make my face dry too. Plus I like the fact that’s EWG grade and safe for sensitive skin also. Overall I did enjoy using this and will continue until I emptied this bottle.

The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review

Hyaluronic Acid/HA – is critical in maintaining skin hydration. Topically applied, it helps to hydrate the skin and maintain this hydration as a humectant.
Humectant – (hyoo/meck/tant): a substance used to reduce the loss of moisture.

Source: https://www.elle.com/uk/beauty/skin/a35378/what-is-hyaluronic-acid-and-how-does-it-work

Why is good for our skin?

1. If skin is sufficiently hydrated, it feels super-soft, plump and pillowy
and looks so much more radiant.
2. When skin is hydrated, lines and wrinkles (even the deeper ones) appear diminished, so it is a great ingredient for those with ageing skin who are desperate to cling on to their youthful perkiness.
3. It works wonders on everyone. ‘Hyaluronic Acid works for any skin type even sensitive or breakout-prone skin, as well as those with an oily complexion.
4. Recent research suggests that Hyaluronic Acid also has antioxidant properties, which means it can act like a shield against free radicals we aren’t in control of, like pollution and other aggressors.

Texture – Slightly viscous in consistency
Scent – unscented
Packaging – simple plastic packaging with 30ml of the product

Review – Its the second product I’ve tried from @theinkeylist and I must say it was loved at first use. I like that its very easy to apply, no pilling or residue, absorbs pretty well and no tackiness as for my experience. I immediately applied this after my toner and before my moisturizer usually in my daily morning routine. Its best partened with my current fave Ceramide cream from @illiyoon_official I love that’s its the perfect combo, why? Coz ceramides help reinforce our skinโ€™s barrier and increase hydration giving usย  plumper, smoother, firmer-feeling skin with fewer visible lines and wrinkles too. I must say that this HA serum made my skin instantly hydrated, soft and looks glowy too.
I’m down to the last few use and I’mย  considering to repurchase this soon also. Have you tried this also, do you love it too? I wanna know your thoughts also.

Pyunkang Yul Acne line Set

Today I’ll be reviewing four out of six products that I’ve been using from Pyunkang Yuls’ Acne line set which I won from a giveaway hosted by Go Bloom and Glow.

A little overview about the products:

Pyunkang Yul Acne Facial Cleanser is designed to address blackheads, pores, breakouts, and excess oil, revealing incredibly smooth and radiant results.

Pyunkang Yul Acne Toner Formulated with Willow Bark Extract, it gently exfoliates and rid skin of dead cells. It helps in unclogging pores and targeting the most stubborn pimples caused by bacteria and dead skin for a smoother, healthier-looking complexion. Itโ€™s packed with Tiger Lily extract to provide anti-bacterial properties and to flush out acne-bacteria from clogged pores. The formula is further enriched with Madecassoside and Niacinamide to soothe and regenerate the skin. The toner also controls excess sebum production to prevent breakouts.

Pyunkang Yul Acne Cream – a lightweight, oil-free gel cream that soothes acne-prone skin. It delivers rich hydration, conditions damaged skin, soothes and helps improve the look of the overall skin complexion.

Pyunkang Yul Acne Spot Cream provides relief from breakouts effectively. Powered by copper tripeptide and licorice extract, this fast-acting cream calms inflammation and visibly reduces redness for a clearer complexion.

Review:
I’ve been using the Acne Set during the time I’m having some zits due to my monthly period. The cleanser comes in a watery gel type (if you know what I mean) and has little to no scent at all. It cleanses pretty well, love that its non drying but I find it a little mild for my preference. The Acne Toner on the hand is a watery type toner and has a little to scent also. I like that its alcohol free and my skin feels a lot calmer while using this. The Acne cream comes in a gel type form, almost unscented also. I love that its non greasy and absorbs pretty well too. Helps calm my zit and helps prevent potential irritation. Down to the last product I’ve tried the Acne Spot Cream comes in a slender tube type packaging and its colour white, stings a bit when applied on my zit. Maybe that’s how spot cream works, it’s my first time using one coz acne patch is my thing for combating those pesky zits. I find this okay as it helps me calm down my pimple tho I prefer using acne patch better. Overall I did enjoy using these four products I’ve tried from the Acne line and will continue to use it when I’m having acne troubles again. By the way, I have combination skintype but I’m happy that this line worked for me. Of course YMMV. ๐Ÿ˜Š

โ›” Not a con but since it feels very lightweight I think it’s not hydrating enough for dry skintype but since I have combination skintype it doesn’t bother me at all
Overall I did enjoy using this cream and will continue using this until the last drop.
