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.

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!

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!

Blue Theme Skincare Routine

Was inspired to do an all blue Am routine, luckily I was able to pull it off with all of these items! Focusing on hydration too!

Quick Impressions in order of my usage:
๐Ÿ”นwater cleanse
๐Ÿ”น@innisfreeofficial Hydrating clay mask- Love this in the am as it is quick- just 5-10minutes, enough to remove some oils & sebums. Reviewed!

๐Ÿ”น@keepcool_global Ocean Mist spray – perfect after masking! My 1st layer of hydration for today. Will review soon!

๐Ÿ”น@wishtrend @rovectin_global Activating Treatment Lotion- love at first pat! I love toners that are so hydrating, whether it’s watery or viscous. I feel my skin plumping even with just 1 skin!

๐Ÿ”น@ghostdemocracy Hyaluronic Acid – while skin is still damp from the toner, this goes next! Yet extra plump skin! Reviewed

๐Ÿ”น@urangnatural – soothing, calming and yes adds nourishment! Reviewed!

๐Ÿ”น@isntree_official HA sleeping mask- a sleeping mask in the morning? Hahaha Yes! I love using my sleeping mask in the Am routine! Especially if it’s gel type like this, refreshing(straight from the fridge!!) & lightweight. Reviewing soon too.

๐Ÿ”นBiore UV Aqua rich spf- last time to use this today. I loved this spf but I must say the alcohol scent is getting onto me.๐Ÿ™ I now appreciate the Korean sunscreen better. So won’t be repurchasing this anymore.

๐Ÿ”น@elleybearofficial Hand soothing gel-the scent of alcohol & sanitizer is something I am not enjoying anymore.๐Ÿ˜ญ This one smells like lavender which is so relaxing & does not dry my hands! This is part of the Beat the Blues project by @kbeautycollective !

Can’t believe it’s just 3 months before Christmas!๐ŸŽ„Hope you are staying safe and no #mondayblues๐Ÿ’™

Review : Velyvely Mild Physical UV Defense sunscreen SPF45 PA+++

*physical or mineral sunscreen stays on top of our skin to block and scatter UV rays, it’s either zinc or titanium oxides, both are safe

What makes this Sunscreen special?
๐Ÿ”นEssence like consistency, creamy but lightweight, leaves a nice, slightly dewy finish.
๐Ÿ”นMinimal white cast to None at all!
๐Ÿ”นContains amazing ingredients like Ceramides, plant-derived squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Grape Fruit extract & Raspberry leaf extract(helps with soothing & retains moisture)
๐Ÿ”นCan’t detect any scent!

Took this Sunscreen to the beach!!

Korean Sunscreens are killing it! The texture alone is impressive! It dispenses easily from the 50ml. tube packaging. It feels like I’m applying a lightweight moisturizer, spreads easily, no tugging! Nonsticky at all easily absorbs and leaves a nice healthy dewy finish. Not the oily or too shiny! Just right based on my experience. Goes well under makeup too. I have tested this both with and without moisturizer and on both times it’s still good! Having dry/dehydrated skin, this supplies enough hydration & moisture that lasted hours. My skin didn’t feel dry at all! I am totally enjoying this sunscreen! Have not experienced any irritation too.

Overall this is one of my fave sunscreens to date! I would say it’s an ‘elegant and impressive’ sunscreen!

Review : Instanatural Vitamin C Cleanser

All fresh and bright from the weekend?!โœจSpeaking of which here’s my thoughts about the @instanatural_beauty Vitamin C cleanser!

Vitamin C has certainly helped transformed my skin from dull to a glowy & healthy state!

Aside from Vitamin C (SAP), this contains green tea extract, Aloe Vera, Coconut water, Cica, Rosemary leaf extract & cucumber extract.

๐ŸŠMy Experience :
๐Ÿ”ธIt’s a gel type cleanser with a PH of 6 based on my ph strip tester.
๐Ÿ”ธA light orangey scent that is refreshing after each use.*Supposedly for my Pm routine but been reaching for it even in the Am as it is refreshing!
๐Ÿ”ธIt does not lather so much which I appreciate, a pump or 2 is definitely enough!
๐Ÿ”ธWas actually a bit worried as Vitamin C has the tendency to be drying but boy was I wrong! It leaves my skin clean, brightened & is not dry or tight at all!๏ŠMy Experience :

Overall an easy favorite cleanser because it does a good job of cleansing, the skin is soft, noticed some brightening effect after each use & is refreshing! It’s $20 for a whooping 200ml! They are also Cruelty & Vegan! This is my 2nd item from them and is really impressed by the quality!

Review : Ghost Democracy Floodgates Hyaluronic Acid Serum

The Good Stuff!
๐Ÿ’ง2.1% Pure Hyaluronic Acid in different molecular sizes–low, medium & high that replenished hydration deep within.
๐Ÿ’ง4.0% Niacinamide – another great ingredient to strengthen skin moisture barrier, minimize appearance of pores & brightens skin too!
๐Ÿ’ง1.6% Linden flower Extract-great water binding properties & anti-inflammatory
๐Ÿ’ง1.3% white tea extract- rich in antioxidants
I love how they disclose the % of the ingredients! No more guessing! Appreciate more brands that are so truthful with their formulas!

Open the Floodgate of Hydration!!๐Ÿ’ง
Hyaluronic Acid made a big difference on my dry /dehydrated skin! Always a staple in my routine! Here’s my go-to HA serum nowadays!

Like any HA serum this is best apply on a damp skin. It’s a Humectant hence it needs water or moisture to work effectively.
I pair this with my Evian face water, half a dropper for face and neck!
It feels soothing as soon as I apply it! A few pat and hello plump skin! This is easily absorbed even with a face mist. Lightweight! If I layer with other serums it has a light tackiness but is easily resolved with my moisturizer.

See how well it is absorbed!

Truly happy I get to try this! Can’t think of any cons! My skin loves this. Absolutely worth the try!

No fragrance, Silicone-free, Eo’s, parabens, PEG & other nasties!
