, an authentic beauty magazine with personality and looks
If you are a skincare addict, especially if you are into the luxury kind, you must have already come across the British brand 111skin. I have, but I never had the urge to "invest". I guess my "skincare intuition" was well sharpened, you'll see… I would like to introduce their hydrating serum, the Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Booster and give you my detailed thoughts about this small 20ml bottle that costs $135! (yes, you read that right)
Recently, in my stories on my Instagram account, I did a little teasing by mentioning a Korean product that, in my opinion, was a better and more complete version than the well known and beloved Cicaplast Balm by La Roche Posay. Since that story, I've literally been bombarded with messages every day asking me to reveal the secret and finally disclose which product it is! With such a great demand, I have to tell you about this Korean hidden gem (at least in the West), the Centellian24 Madeca Cream Power Boosting Formula!
I've been wanting to try this essence for years (if nothing else, just for the packaging)(yes, I know, that's not the most important thing but LOOK AT IT 🤩). As soon as it was within my reach for ordering, I literally jumped on it! Today, I'm introducing you to the fabulous K-Beauty inspired 'The Giving Essence' from the American brand, Then I Met You!
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…
