The therapy oil blending formula cream
THE FACE SHOP The Therapy Oil Blending Formula Cream
This product promises anti-aging, anti-dry and ultra nourishing effects. I was given a sample by my online korean cosmetic store to try. I used this product after showering. I blended the sample after dispensing and applied the product all over my face. Anti-aging, I can't say much because I'm trying out a sample, so I leave that up to people who actually use this to tell us. This product is anti-dry and ultra nourishing for sure. It felt thick on my face and after leaving it on for a couple of hours, the product felt like it didn't even evaporate. Yeah, my face was so moist, I had difficulty sleeping because it was thick as hell. I went to wash the product off and the next day, I had breakouts all over my T-Zone.

ETUDE HOUSE Wonder Pore Freshner Toner
This is my first Korean Toner and I have already emptied one bottle of this one last year. This toner claims to calm down your skin which had suffered from the harsh environment; remove any impurities which remain even after cleansing; plus, rebalance the pH level of your skin as it is slightly acidic (pH 5.5), for a healthy and youthful skin. I apply it after cleansing my face and it really does refresh it. It returns the moisture and I can slightly feel the tightening of the pores on my cheek area. I haven't seen a drastic amount of change yet but it works, I guess. Let's now go deeper to my review of this product. PACKAGING: The packaging for this product comes in a blue, transparent plastic bottle that has a cute label on it. I got the 250mL variant and I think the package is adorable. CONTENT: This toner comes with 250mL of product and it's plenty enough to last you for about 3 months if you use it day and night, which is what I do in my case. It's a good amount for the price that you are going to pay if you plan to buy it. TEXTURE: The product is very watery and you will need to use a cotton pad to apply it. It's not like the Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Toner that I talked about in my previous Beauty Empties Series. SMELL: This toner smells fresh and minty. I don't know how to describe it thoroughly, just really fresh, hehe. APPLICATION: This product feels refreshing and just like water when you apply it to your face. But once it dries up, I felt the tightening of my pores and as what its name says, "wonder pore", I think that is mainly what this product is all about. It's generally for pore care and I think this product will be great for those who want their pores to shrink. EFFECTIVITY: For all the 3-4 months of using this product, I can't exactly say that it made a change in my skin. Yes, it kind of makes my pores shrink but it didn't really do anything else. Or maybe it did? I don't know, maybe I just needed to use it more consistently. PRICE: This is priced at ₱540 and I think it is a good deal because you are getting 250mL of product. The Verdict: This Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Toner is a decent toner over all. Its price point is a good deal with the amount of product you are getting, it didn't give me any bad reactions, and it smells nice. I'm going to rate it a 4 out of 5 stars just because I really didn't see its effects on me.
Jumiso whoa whoa soothing mask
Hello Skin Jumiso Whoa Whoa Soothing Mask
These Hello Skin Jumiso Masks are one of my favorites especially the Whoa, Whoa Soothing Mask variety. I loved its instant brightening effect, I love how it soothed the redness of my skin, I love how rich and moisturizing the essence is, I love it's smell, and most of all, I love how thin the mask itself is and how it perfectly adheres and fits my face. Honestly, I could go on and on about how great this mask is, because it really is! Maybe the only con I can think about it is its price. Each mask retails for PHP110 and while it's on the higher end and not that affordable, the effects I get after wearing the mask make the price reasonable. 👌 This mask is definitely an extravagance but it's an extravagance I'm willing to pay for as I'm getting visible results from it immediately.
Etude house 0 2 therapy air mask snail
ETUDE HOUSE 0.2 Therapy Air Mask - Snail
This is one of my favorite masks of all time! This product contains a lot of essence and the mask is well-soaked with all the goodness. Compared to other varieties of the same brand, this Snail variety is my favorite one because it didn't irritate my skin and just really made my face moist, soft, and soothed. Its essence is very rich and moisturizing, it's mask is thin and adheres well to the skin, and it just leaves my face hydrated and well-moisturized after use. I highly, highly recommend this product to those who are looking for a mask with rich essence that will deeply moisturize their skin. Snail is already a known ingredient in the KBeauty community as it claims to have skin-repairing effects and can just give a dry skin's moisture need. I really love it!
Hyseac fluide spf50
Uriage Hyseac Fluide SPF50+
For reference, I have combination skin (oily t-zone and normal cheek area). The **texture**, as the name indicates, is very fluid and, as so, very easy to apply. However, it peels off almost immediately. Seconds after I've applied on a layer, if I want to put some more on a certain area for better protection or even if I want to blend it in better, the sunscreen will start to peel off. Because of this reason I don't think it would play well under makeup, but I can't tell since I don't use it. I also felt like my skin got greasier than usual through out the day. As for **white-cast**, whenever I put it I thought it left some on me but I couldn't tell if it was just me imagining things or if it just needed more time to dry down. I'm also fairly white so maybe it didn't make a big difference on me. But, I do know that on two occasions there was a white cast since a friend of mine pointed it out. I recommend trying the product out first before buying it if you can. I also don't recommend to put this on over exfoliated skin or on dry areas that result from products that dry the skin put (e.g. spot treatments) because it will burn a little in the beginning. In summary, I don't really recommend it and I won't be buying it again.
Aura manuka honey treatment mask
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Treatment Mask
I've been using this for a few weeks now and although it hasn't been revolutionary in changing my skin, it has given it a massive boost in hydration and a decent reduction in redness. It's great to slather on after a long day when my skin feels extra dry. Definitely would buy again.
Anthelios xl spf 50 fluid ultra light
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Fluid Ultra-Light
This product works very well on my combination skin. I use it after a vit C serum and before my makeup during the spring and summer months. It provides the protection I need (my skin is fair) without feeling greasy or heavy. It leaves a hydrated sensation, the consistency is liquid and it's very easy to apply. Remember to mix it first!
Ylangylang and green tea botanical conditioner
Healing Bird YlangYlang and Green Tea Botanical Conditioner
I got this along with the shampoo mainly for my partner who suffers from reactions to most shampoo. He gets a chronic red flaky scalp from his psoriasis. I also tend to get a very dry scalp in winter. This conditioner is very hydrating. My scalp hasn't had any flaking and his seems to be improving. On the downside for me despite having a very dry scalp somehow I also get oily roots so this conditioner is almost too heavy for me. My hair feels amazing though and I might just be used to shampoos and conditioners that really strip your natural oils away. I'm personally trying to focus the conditioner on the ends for this reason and that seems to be working. It appears to be great for people with sensitive dry scalps and okay for people with combination skin like mine.
