Since retinoids have become a major part of my skincare routine, I've had to adapt the routine considerably. I've actually added products that repair the skin's barrier, so that I don't have to suffer the sometimes drying effect so severely. Products such as this wonderful repair serum from Niche Beauty Lab Theramid Ceramide Treatment, for example. Let me introduce you to it!
Before summer really comes to an end, let me tell you about my favorite night moisturiser for the season! Your skin is sensitive and overheated, and you don't like heavy or overly rich textures? Look no further than Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Cream from the Korean skincare brand Hanyul! You're gonna love it!
I'm carrying on with my review of the CALM line from Paula's Choice. The products in this range were designed specifically for sensitive skin, yet they are not overly simple or boring. Quite the opposite! I've recently talked about the Rescue & Repair Weightless Moisturizer and I'm following up today with the one that is the star of the range in my humble opinion: the Paula's Choice CALM Nourishing Milky Toner!
The brand SACHI States Of Skin has been on my mind since it launched, a couple of years ago. I was waiting impatiently for a product that would fit my needs. My wish was granted a few months ago, with their new multi-tasking Pro Resilience Serum. This product is truly a Swiss Army knife of cosmetics! If you're attracted to minimalist routines, you'll likely be intrigued…👀
"An acne cleansing cream, Bonnie? But aren't you a little past your teenage years? 😅" That's sort of what I thought when I opened a press sample shipment last summer with a selection of products to try, and which contained this purifying cleansing cream. Then I looked at the list of ingredients and thought that it was probably worth overcoming my biases and testing it. Well, let's just say that the Aestura Theracne 365 Clear Deep Cleansing Foam is now one of my go-to cleansers. Let me tell you why!
Ah, this new CALM collection from Paula's Choice... I was waiting for it so eagerly. Yes, I'm aware, it's mostly for reactive skin, and I don't really have sensitive skin usually. But if you thought that was going to stop me from trying all those pretty mint green bottles, you're wrong! 😆 And today, we begin with the Rescue & Repair Weightless Moisturizer, a perfect moisturizer for the season if you have combination skin like me or if you enjoy lightweight textures.
In 2022, the company behind the brand Missha decided to separate their hanbang line and make it a brand of its own: Chogongjin. Just a heads up, I'm so into this brand that I plan on testing half of their catalog for reviews! I hope you're ready!😆 We're starting today with their nourishing Geumsul Jin Toner essence, which, as you'll see, is perfect for the season…
A richer version of the famous soothing cream from the Korean skincare brand Dr.G? I'm in! Today I'm introducing you to the Dr.G R.E.D. Blemish Clear Moisture Cream, which has just been released in Korea! Did it convince me more than the first version, the most famous one, which wasn't my favorite? Let me tell you all about it!
Does your skin feel drier because of the upcoming winter? Have you introduced retinol into your routine recently and your skin feels tighter than usual? Do you find the word "ceramide" appealing? The AMPLE:N Ceramide Shot Ampoule will no doubt pique your interest! Let me tell you all about my extensive test of this oh-so effective treatment with an unbeatable price/ quantity ratio!
This post is long overdue… I should have reviewed the Prebiotics & Niacinamide Pore Refining Booster serum from the Singapore-based skincare brand, Allies Of Skin, a long time ago. This ultra comprehensive, multi-tasking product has become one of my favorite niacinamide serums, and I'll tell you why in this review!
This summer, my skin struggled. Heat and humidity that prohibit the use of textures that are too rich, paired with drying air conditioning = the combo of hell for my skin. So I started looking for the perfect product for this extreme climate, and fortunately, I can always count on K-Beauty to save the day! Meet the skincare gem that kept my skin alive, the Aestura Atobarrier 365 Hydro Soothing Cream!
I'm a big fan of tea, even (especially?) in my skincare! An antioxidant action combined with a thirst-quenching effect, what's not to love? In the last few months, I have been testing the Innisfree Black Tea Youth Enhancing Treatment Essence which, besides tea, also includes peptides for a boosted anti-aging effect! Let me introduce you to it 🙂.
