Review : Save Skincare Smoothing Eye Cream

Is eye cream part of your routine? Always in mine. I kinda find it more satisfying to use a separate eye cream than use my regular moisturizer. It’s one of those items that transforms my routine to be more extra & spa like! Just the way I like it!

Here’s what I’ve been using for more than 2 weeks now. It’s the Save Smoothing Eye cream.

This contains Duo-Biotic complex, this helps preserve the natural defensive barrier of the skin, reduces inflammation too. With Bakuchiol-natural alternative to Retinol! (1st time to use an item with this)ย  Said to help boost collagen & elastin production, making skin stay firm! Who would not want that?!

Other ingredients – Shea butter, Trehalose (good moisturizing agent) Cetearyl alcohol(fatty alcohol), Alpha Glucan(reduces flaking & cracking)

Spreads like a dream, so lightweight!

Texture is different from the other eye cream that I have tried. This has an emulsion type consistency making it very lightweight, so easy to spread & tap hence no tugging on the delicate eye area! This is also ophthalmologically tested making it safe for those with sensitive eyes.

I like their airless pump container too-its perfect for their natural formula which helps preserve them, no contaminants!
I just need a pea size for both eye area.
I love how soothing it is! I do store this in the fridge adding the cool sensation & de puffing as I apply it for both routine!

It hydrates & moisturized the eye area so well without making it feel heavy or sticky! And as I use it every single day, I noticed some firming & brightening effect! In love with this eye cream! ๐Ÿฅฐ As with the lines, I know with continued use I will reap more benefits.

Save Skincare is Vegan, Cruelty Free, No Fragrance, Pregnancy safe, recyclable packaging, No EO’s, no parabens, no colorant. Tick all the boxes for sensitive skin!

Review : I’m From Mugwort Essence from Wishtrend

Who does not know this essence?!
The Skincare world especially the #kbeautylovers surely knows!

Mugwort is one ingredient that has taken this world by storm last year & is still going strong! And my ‘Mugwort experience’ won’t be complete if I don’t get to try this!
I know this is already an HG for a lot of people, but is it mine too?

Mugwort in Korea is considered as a healing herb that is great for its anti-bacterial, anti fungal & skin protective properties. With its soothing & anti-inflammatory properties, it is an easy favorite if you have dry, irritated, red skin.

This essence contains only 1 ingredient,
๐Ÿ’ฏ % Mugwort Essence! Using the slow release extraction method to maximize the nutrients in the concentrate.

This became one of the most sought after essence especially with all the mask wearing! Simply because it calms the skin after a long day with the mask. I know because this is what I reach for together with the mask & cream whenever I come back with an itchy, hot, irritated skin! The soothing effect is just so amazing!

A watery essence that is easily absorbed & very lightweight, hydrating & moisturizing too! This can also be used as a facial & feminine mist(though I haven’t tried it yet) The light herbal scent is relaxing for me too. My skin is just happy whenever I have this, calmed, supple & plump! As long as we are going to wear the mask, this will be a staple for me! Is it an HG? You betcha!

Review : SkinRx Lab MadeCera Cream Double Toner and MadeCera Cream

Pretty in Pink!! ๐Ÿ’•

๐Ÿ’“MadeCera Cream Double Essence Toner
Key Ingredients :
– Ceramide: Skin barrier improvement and Moisturizing
– Beta-glucan: Provide skin radiance, Re-texturizing on skin
– Milk protein: Forming moisture layer, Re-texturizing on skin
– Madecassoside & Centella Asiatica extract: Skin calming and protecting

Known as the ‘Strawberry milk’ toner(it’s a bi-phase formula, so need to shake it before use) this is a hydrating & moisturizing one! With a light sweet scent, my dry skin drinks this up in no time! I apply 2-3 layers & it turns my skin soft, supple & velvety! No tackiness too! Since it’s a toner & cream hybrid, I thought it will be heavy or suffocating but it is lightweight. On lazy days, I love layering up to 4, apply just 1 serum, cream & I’m good. Great for both am & pm routines.

โœ…Formulated without artificial colors, parabens, silicone and mineral oil. This product is cruelty-free. Dermatologist-tested to be safe for sensitive skin
I get it why this is Soko Glam’s award winner for Best of K beauty for 2020! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’–

Love how nourishing it is!

๐Ÿ’—MadeCera Cream
Key Ingredients :
– Ceramide ferment complex: Skin barrier improvement and Moisturizing
– High purity TECA & Madecassoside: Helps prompt soothing
– Patent Technology Pre-Lipid: Helps Ceramide reach the skin deeply.

The cream texture feels lightweight, spreads & sinks well without tackiness too. The scent is more pronounced here than the toner, sweet like candy. Not bothered by it. Although my skin barrier is A-OK for now, having a Ceramide-based moisturizer is great because you’ll never know when you over-exfoliate & having a strong skin barrier protects the skin from irritations & breakouts. I alternate this with my other moisturizer, using according. to my skin needs. I wake up with calm & still moisturized skin!

I thought it would be heavy but is lightweight!

Overall, these Pink Duo is a joy in my routine! Hydrating, Nourishing and Moisturizing! ๐Ÿ’•

Review : Eraclea Purifying Gel Cleanser and Intensive Repair Vitamin C

Some time ago I was sent these 4  products from @eracleaskincare through @exitonesolutions. I was made to choose(it was not easy, as they all sound so good!๐Ÿ˜) from their beautiful array of the luxurious line of nourishing and rejuvenating items.

Their products contain HylaFusion, a specially crafted combination of Hyaluronic Acid sponges with various molecular weights. All Eraclea formulations contain this proprietary ingredient, scientifically designed to maintain the hydration that helps retain the youthful appearance of the skin.

โ–ช๏ธPurifying Gel Cleanser – I’m in love with this! Right from the first use, I knew it is so good! It foams just right & is soothing! HylaFusion, Aloe V. Leaf Juice, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Green Tea, watermelon extract are the key ingredients. I use this for both Am & Pm and it leaves my skin clean, refresh & the best part is, it feels hydrated! Yup, no dry feelings afterward! Have not experienced any irritations too. YMMV

The foam is just right!

โ–ช๏ธIntensive Repair Protect serum/Vitamin C.
Claims: intensive treatment for skin with signs of aging. HylaFusionยฎ works synergistically with the antioxidant vitamin C, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, to protect against cell damage, accelerate cell renewal, improve tone, texture, firmness, and brightness, and guard against wrinkles.
Contains Tripeptide 5-year for this! (helps with lines & wrinkles), Argireline(tones, firms & increase skin elasticity)
As you can see it’s an anti-aging powerhouse! I love the sleek, pump packaging!

*I have to stop using all my other C’s whenever I test a new one.
I’ve been using this for almost 3 weeks & I would say it helped my skin stay brightened, evens out my skin tone & I do feel a firming effect! Absorption is so good too, feels lightweight & the scent is light citrusy. It is also easy to layer with my other items. As for the lines & wrinkles, I have not seen any additional ones so all good! I would continue to use this of course as I feel the formula suits my skin so well. No irritations noticed! YMMV

I love how it sinks well!

Overall, these 2 are impressive! Enjoyed having them in my routine! โค๏ธ

Review : Jumiso All Day Vitamin Nourishing Mask

Do you like wash off mask? My fave is having it as part of my Am routine! It sets off my mood, right away!
Here’s one mask that’s setting my ‘Good Morning, Have a great day’ mood!

Formulated with 15 Vitamin complex  that provides deep hydration while Recharging dull skin! That’s what I call a ‘wake up call’!!

This has an transparent orange-y texture with tiny bits of of lemon peel that helps gently exfoliate. (Similar to orange marmalade! ๐ŸŠ) No, the peel is not harsh or hard. This has a rich citrus aroma which for me feels refreshing! I love Citrusy scent!
I have this for 10-15 minutes tops & it doesn’t dry at all. Has a nice cooling effect even if not sited in the fridge. ( I bet this will be awesome for hot,summer weather!) I savor that orange marmalade scent while having it.( I want some toast!) I did not experienced any stinging nor irritations after.

Texture Video

Washing it off since it’s gel texture can be a bit tricky. I prefer to use my soft face sponge to take it off, finishing it with a  quick wash with water when all the masks are  gone. I know others don’t like this part with wash off masks , that’s why I have my handy dandy sponge! Easy peasy!

The skin feels fresh, clean and yes revitalized! A slight brightening effect is also visible as well as the feeling of hydrated skin. I think with continued use this can really help with a more brightened skin! I have only used this a couple of times as recommended use is only 2-3x /week.

Overall a good mask that delivers what it claims! And yes a you can have it it anytime of the day to recharge your tired, dull skin! YMMV

Review : Velyvely Makeup

Here’s my take on a couple of makeup that I am using.

Starting off with the Primer Supreme Moist Fit in the shade Pink peaches. A water-gel primer that has a light blurring effect & it does feel moist! (good for those dry skin type) This can function as your moisturizer too & with the addition of Spf 30 PA++ (though personally I still apply a separate Sunscreen)This has ‘jewelry complex’ & VitaskinE composed of amethyst, pearl, tourmaline, and Ruby powder! I love using this when I’m in a hurry! Moisturizer & blurring effect, oh yeah!

When I have more time, I will use the Velyvely Aura Honey Glow Cushion(23 Natural)for the nice dewy, glowy effect! This is my go-to cushion nowadays. The shade though not perfect for me but still workable. This contains 31% pure Belgian hot spring water & a special Honey Glow propolis! With SPF50 PA+++! Yes to makeup with skincare! This has medium coverage which I prefer! I still want my natural skin to show, no heavy coverage for this Mama! I love the slightly pointy shape of the puff, perfect for those areas in my eyes & nose.

Next, I will use the Giant Volume Mascara in the shade of Mega Black for some dramatic, fuller eyelashes! With the C-curve brush for easy application, a few swipe & eyelashes are fuller without clumping!
Of course, it won’t be complete without the Velyvely Lippies which I have reviewed.(a few posts back, do check them out!) My fave is the Glamorous shade!

Makeup are mood boosters! I don’t see why you can’t wear some even when you are just roaming around the house, watching Netflix, or just browsing through Instagram! What do you think?

Review : Dr. Althea Amino Acid Gentle Bubble Cleanser

This is a low ph, gentle cleanser recommended for all skin type especially sensitive skin. This contains 17(oh yes!!) Amino acid that removes impurities effectively. The nano size foam (UFD 200nm)means it can penetrate deeply for a thorough cleansing. This also helps in the water barrier around the skin thus it doesn’t feel dry after washing.

My Experience :
I’ve been using this for more than 3 weeks now and I must say I am in love! ๏ฅฐ The soft, silky, dense foam is a sensorial experience every wash. I mainly use this in the Am but also reached out in the Pm whenever my skin feels sensitive. A pump is enough but I love using it so much, 2 pumps  for me. Swipe for video!

The soft foam feels sooo good! As I wash it off, I was shookt the 1st time as my skin feels so hydrated, moist & clean!! Woah, blown away I must say! Yes, it does not feel stripping at all!

No wonder this is recommended for sensitive skin & probably good if you have painful cystic pimples as it is gentle & soothing.

Even before the double cleansing thing happened, face wash imo should be pleasing to our senses. It gives us something to look forward each time we cleanse. It should be enjoyable! And this cleanser certainly does that!! The cute smiling emoji in the packaging is the perfect emoticon because I feel that way as I touch my skin after each wash! Yup, a fave cleanser! 5๐ŸŒŸ/5 YMMV

I always have an essence in my routine, my dry skin is dependent on this to step up my hydration. It made a huge difference! Others think it’s not necessary but hey you know your skin better than anyone else!
This essence has made my skin feel hydrated & moisturized and there is certainly a difference from the other essences I’ve used. It’s actually very similar to my 1st essence โžก๏ธMissha’S FTE, which got me hooked on essences ! The ingredients are more geared towards anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and the fermented extracts are rich in antioxidants! So it naturally soothes & calms irritated skin. I’m not acne prone so I cannot comment on that. But I do get irritations especially now when I wear face mask & I’ve noticed there’s hardly any or it subsides faster! This doesn’t have any scent, watery with a tiny slip.

I apply 2-3 skins, usually this comes 1st before my toner.(if my toner is viscous than this)
And yes I do love it! Does it boost my serums?… probably does! All I know is my skin is supple, smooth & plump as soon as I apply this! I want a bigger bottle!!

Review : Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping Mask

Here’s my experience with one of my fave brand discoveries this year! I have tried their HA toner, Essence & testing the Rose Calming mask. As you know hydration is my jam! Hyaluronic Acid, I can’t seem to get enough of it! Anyone with dry skin can relate for sure. Here’s one product that packs a punch when it comes to hydration!

Review: @isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping mask

๐Ÿ’งThis mask is to replenish the moisture lost during the day.
๐Ÿ’งInclude 5 types of Hyaluronic Acid, with Betaine and Ceramide NP to help prevent moisture loss, locking it in!
๐Ÿ’งComes is a 100ml. tube with a transparent gel texture. Fragrance, alcohol & EO FREE!

I keep this in the fridge and it sure is refreshing! I apply this on slightly damp skin, misting with Evian first. It is not sticky or tacky at all and is absorbed well. It feels lightweight too. I like to apply a thick one because AC tends to dry my skin more & even with a thick layer it does not feel ‘suffocating’ if you know what I mean. Of course, it plumps my skin! I wake up with hydrated skin still, so it does supply the moisture & holds it in.
Although it is a sleeping mask, I love using this in the daytime especially when it’s too hot. The gel texture is absolutely perfect for that weather/temperature! Have not experienced any irritations whatsoever!

When it comes to Hyaluronic Acid, @isntree_official is one of the brands I really trust and love! Their formula is so good and my skin is very happy about it! Dry skin gals, this is for us!
5๐ŸŒŸ/5 YMMV #purchasedbyJonette

What’s your fave Hyaluronic Acid-based product? Or have you tried any from this line?

Review : Ghost Democracy’s Transparent Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

After weeks of using the @ghostdemocracy Transparent Gentle Exfoliating Daily Cleanser, I can finally share my experience!
Let me just say that I really appreciate how transparent the brand with the percentage of actives/ingredients in all of their products.
As with this cleanser, you can easily see them on the box & tube!

The 1st week that I have started to use this(pm routine), 2x was enough for my skin, since then I have adjusted and can now use it every other day without experiencing any bad reactions.
It’s a gel type that lathers enough, no crazy foam. I always lather my cleansers on my palms 1st instead on the face, less friction. The scent is something I can’t describe(sorry)there is no artifical fragrance so I guess the mixture of all the ingredients makes up for this, a bit on the chemically side but not off putting.
PH of 4 to 5, based my ph strip test.
A mixture of Glycolic, Mandelic & Willow Bark Extract, all helping to gently exfoliate & address those dead skin cells. The addition of Niacinamide is a plus! Helps to soothe & aid in the moisture barrier.

True to its name, it is indeed gentle, even with the combination of the 3 exfoliant! Of course I only massage this gently for a max of 1 minute. No drying or stripping feeling. Just fresh, clean skin! This helped with my clog prone skin at bay. No cons!
