, an authentic beauty magazine with personality and looks
I have been a phototherapy convert with my LED mask for a very long time! It's an effective technology for me, which helps me to maintain a nice glow and a clearer skin texture. But are all LED masks the same? After being loyal to my LG Pra.L mask for years, I tested the one that the brand CurrentBody Skin sent me about 4 months ago. I'm now ready to give you my thoughts!
I don't know about you, but when I hear "skin barrier repair product", I always think of something rich, rather emollient and that I would have trouble using in the morning without looking like a disco ball...
Well, I have good news! The Korean skincare brand By Wishtrend has just launched a product that is ideal for people with sensitive skin who prefer lightweight textures! Let me introduce you to the By Wishtrend Pro-Biome Balance Cream!
Both times I went to Korea, this famous "green ampoule serum" as they call it there, caught my eye but as I couldn't find much information available about the brand, I just looked at it from afar. And then, a few months ago, I finally decided to try it! Let me introduce you to one of the bestsellers for aging skin in Korea, the O Hui Prime Advancer Ampoule Serum!
I can see it when I look at my stats on this website, anti-aging devices fascinate you as much as me (my two articles on the topic are in my top 10 most read articles 😆). I started testing a couple of them a few years ago, first with an LED mask, and then I continued with a facial toning device using an electric micro-current, the Trinity from NuFACE. This is the same technique that we're going to focus on today with my test of the micro and nano-current based anti-aging device, the ZIIP OX!
Did you see, there was another star/influencer/celebrity beauty brand launched today…
I wrote this sentence last week; I know it's still relevant this week too! Every time I see a new launch (every other day, that is), I can't help but wonder if all these celebrity brands will still be around in 10 years? That's what I'll talk about in this week's Memo!
I know, I know, I rarely do cleanser reviews on here. I'll admit it, they are not the most fascinating category of products for me. But when I find one cleansing product that does the job, and that is also great to use, I feel like I have to dedicate a review to it! So today, let me introduce you to the super delicious Aqua Bomb Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm from the Korean skincare brand Belif…
Dr.G R.E.D. Blemish Clear Soothing Cream is a true phenomenon in South Korea. Already a bestseller for several years, when Covid hit and especially when the obligation to wear a mask became commonplace, this soothing treatment cream has become Korea's favorite SOS cream! I had to try it to see for myself if it lived up to its reputation :)
"Wait, what? There's a review of a certified organic product on BTY ALY? Ah phew, it's Korean, I thought you were unwell!" Admit it, if you recognized the My First Essener essence/toner from the skincare brand Sioris, that's what you thought! Well yes, this week I am indeed reviewing an organic product, and even crazier, I have to admit I like it a lot 😜
