Beauty Review: Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

Happy first day of May everyone! Let’s begin this month with a beauty review on everyone’s all-time favorite soothing gel.

It is summer from where I live: the sun has been pretty unforgiving since the summer began and for the past two months of summer, the city has been roasting in the sweltering heat of the day.  To adapt to this scorching season, I switched some of my skincare products and went for those that would best suit the summer weather.

Beauty Review: Innisfree Apple Juicy Deep Cleansing Foam

I like to switch my skincare depending on the season. And when it comes to cleansing foams, I like something light and fresh that’s perfect for the summer weather.

Currently, I have three cleansing foams in rotation: one is the Piolang 4D Pore Balance Foam & Pack which takes me forever to use up, the other is the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Cleansing Foam which is my all-time favorite cleanser and finally, the Innisfree Apple Juicy Deep Cleansing Foam which I am currently loving these days.

Beauty Review: My Sunscreen Essentials

Summer is just around the corner and for most people, it is that time of the year to scout the shelves for effective sunscreens.

But while it is important to be extra mindful in keeping our face and body safe from the sun this summer, every skincare manual stresses the equally important task of using sunscreen all year round.

Studies suggest that daily use of sunscreen not only lessens the chance of acquiring sunburn but reduces other potentially harmful sun damage as well.

Beauty Review: Top 5 K-Beauty Must-Haves for Oily Skin

Nothing can be completely frustrating than having a face so oily and greasy, it makes you look like a walking frying pan. And what can be more annoying than seeing your makeup melt just after a few minutes of putting it on? Everyone with oily skin knows the struggle.

I used to have excessively oily skin too, and this was the primary reason why I was attracted to K-Beauty. I was over my head trying to look for ways to combat grease and to prevent breakouts. In my search, I stumbled upon a lot of great K-Beauty products which work well for oily skin.

Beauty Review: Y.E.T Don’t Worry Mask Sheet

Hello everyone! Today’s beauty review is all about these cute and adorable sheet masks from a young Korean beauty brand named Y.E.T (Yes! Enjoy Time). This brand carries a decent range of cosmetics and skincare products at budget-friendly prices.

Aside from their cutesy packaging, the thing that caught me most about these sheet masks was the price. At Althea Korea, these sheet masks retail for only 24 pesos!

I knew I had to get some of these because for a sheet mask newbie such as myself, I am still not prepared to spend a fortune over these highly-raved Korean skincare staple known as sheet masks without first exploring my cheaper options. Thank heavens there are plenty of affordable sheet masks around.

Beauty Review: Onsaemeein Yogurt Peeling Gel

Exfoliation is a very important part of the skincare routine. We cannot deny the awful truth that dirt and dead skin cells remain on the surface of our skin even after cleansing, so it is of great importance that we include exfoliation in our skincare regimen.

Exfoliation also aids and improves the skin’s capacity to absorb all the other skincare products (i.e. toner, serum, essence) that we slather on our skin. It is recommended to exfoliate once or twice a week.

Today’s beauty review is all about Onsaemeein Yogurt Peeling Gel. I purchased this peeling gel during Althea Korea’s Year-End Giveaway Sale last December. You can check my haul here.

I’ve been using this product since the New Year began (about three weeks now), and finally here are my thoughts on this cute and affordable peeling gel.

Beauty Review: Skinfood Premium Tomato Whitening Sleeping Pack

Red is the color of the holiday season, and today’s review features another Korean skin care product which connects to that motif. It’s round, it’s bouncy and it’s red. Any guesses yet? That’s right—I’m talking about tomatoes, and today’s review features the Skinfood Premium Tomato Whitening Sleeping Pack.

In my previous post, I wrote a review of the rice wash off mask from Skinfood. I decided to follow up again with another review from Skinfood just because I really love this brand.

Since the holiday is just around the corner, I thought about reviewing a skincare product which may help our skin cope with dryness and dullness brought about by the cold season, as well as pamper our skin after weeks of rat racing with year-end deadlines.
