leegeeham – Vita Propolis Ampoule and Cream Review

Hey everyone!

This is a review on the leegeeham Vita Propolis Ampoule and Cream. To read the Hyal B5 Ampoule and Toner review then click here! Also, these were sent to me in exchange for reviews, but rest assured my opinions are my own.

Leegeeham started and was known in the Korean cosmetic and skincare community for it’s sucessful dermatology clinic. Then over the years they started to develop their own brand of skincare. The leegeeham Grow line is one of 4 different lines they carry, but they do have also products outside of these four categories. The grow line also includes a Hyal5 face cream and cica serum and cream.

Ingredients

The main ingredients in both are 50% propolis, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract, and  Ethyl Ascorbyl Ether. Propolis revitalizes and nourishes the dull and tired skin. Portulaca Oleracea Extract soothes the skin. Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract or otherwise known as sea buckthorn and Ethyl Ascorbyl Ether are vitamins rich ingredients that brighten up the skin.

Ampoule

The ampoule is very small! It’s 15ml and comes in a small glass container with a dropper. However a little goes a long way. A few drops of the slightly viscous fluid spreads all over the face. This ampoule also contains Centella Asiatica which helps repair skin even further. The finish is not sticky, absorbs very quickly and leaves the skin super soft. I love propolis so when I read that this contained 50% I was over the moon! It costs 25,900KRW and I would highly recommend incorporating propolis to your skincare routine because it really makes your skin glow within. I love it!

Cream

The cream comes in yellow honey glass jar. Inside there is butter colored cream. The texture is more of a thick lotion. It’s slightly runny and spreads nicely without tugging and absorbs quickly. The finish is not sticky at all and my skin is left super soft. It has no greasy sheen and just leaves a subtle glow. For 50ml it costs 38,900KRW.

Last Thoughts

I absolutely would give this a two thumbs up. Great for all skin types. Having used the Hyal B5 and the Vita Propolis together it made my skin GLOW. I have tons of other skincare to review, but these products really made it hard for me to take a break after using them consistently for 3 weeks. I can’t wait to get back on it!

leegeehaam – Grow Hyal B5 Toner and Ampoule Review

Hey everyone!

This is a review on the leegeeham Grow Hyal B5 Toner and Ampoule. To read the Vita Propolis Ampoule and Cream review then click here! Also these were sent to me in exchange for reviews.

Leegeeham started and was known in the Korean cosmetic and skincare community for it’s successful dermatology clinic. Then over the years they started to develop their own brand of skincare. The leegeeham Grow line is one of 4 different lines they carry, but they do have also products outside of these four categories. The grow line also includes a Hyal5 face cream and cica serum and cream.

Ingredients

The main ingredients they use in this line are 5 kinds of hyaluronic acids, pro vitamin B (panthenol), and glyceryl glucoside, which they aptly call ‘Hyal B5’. The five hyaluronic acids are hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, sodium acetylated hyaluronate, ascorbyl propyl hyaluronate, Hydroxypropyl trimonium hyaluronate, and sodium hyaluronate. This hyaluronic acid cocktail delivers moisture deep down into the skin, refines skin texture, treats dryness, and helps stimulate collagen production making your skin looking plumper and younger. Added to this is the Pro Vitamin B5 also known as Panthenol which helps lock in the moisture from evaporating. Glyceryl glucoside helps skin elasticity and stimulates aquaporins, water channels in cells.

Toner

The toner comes in a clear heavy plastic packaging with a pump and a top cover. The liquid inside is a viscous formula, but when you rub it in it becomes a thinner liquid. It has a very faint herbal scent. The extracts that are in this toner are Ginseng fruit extract, vanilla fruit extract, Centella Asiatica extract, kava extract, burdock extract, and mushroom extract, and yam extract. It also contains oils, olive oil, white yam leaf oil, nutmeg kernel oil, carrot seed oil, cowpea seed oil, white chamois flower oil. 

I love thicker toners like this one, so I instantly fell in love with it. It does have a very slight sticky feeling, but because I have very dry skin my skin loves it! I don’t mind it because it’s the first step in my skincare routine. it absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t irritate my skin or eczema patches. I would recommend this if you like the Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Toner, personally I like the leegeeham one a little better because it’s suited more for drier skin types. For 120ml is costs 26,000KRW.

Ampoule

This ampoule comes in the same style of packaging as the toner but with a dropper. The liquid is a thicker than the toner and the ingredients are pretty much identical as the toner with the exception of a handful of ingredients. So This is a bottle of a more concentrated level of the toner which is great since the toner is so good! However, the stickiness of the product is also increased. It spreads easily on the skin and absorbs quickly. The immediate finish is a bit sticky, but as it dries it lessens. Also because I will put on cream afterwards the stickiness is not much of a problem, it’s actually feels quite nice as it feels like it’s sealing in the moisture. For 30ml it costs 28,000KRW.

Last Thoughts

I would highly recommend this line to dry skin types and anyone who has seasonal dryness. The toner and ampoule are two items that can easily be added into your skincare routine. Having used the Hyal B5 and the Vita Propolis together it made my skin GLOW. I have tons of other skincare to review, but these products really made it hard for me to take a break after using them consistently for 3 weeks. I can’t wait to get back on it!

Bonus mask review!

The Hyal B5 Moisture Mask is also a great product. It doesn’t have all of the 5 Hyaluronic acid but still contains Sodium hyaluronate. It also has Ceremide NP, Centella Asiatica extract, and panthenol. The sheet mask is so soft and adheres well on the skin. The fit is nice and the effects are nothing short of great! Love the mask.

Troiareuke In Depth Product Review- ‘Pimples Be Gone!’ ACSEN Selemix Serum

Hey Guys!

This is going to be a lengthy and detailed review on three Troiareuke products. I separated each product into 3 post because all together it was too long. So at the bottom there are links to the other two products! I hope that will be helpful for you guys to read and navigate.

This brand is a branch from a bigger company called MK Universal. They have other spa brand products and spa services including Troipeel. I was gifted the Acsen Oil Cut Cleansing, Acsen Selemix Serum, and the Skin Complex Formula (H+ Cocktail Anti-Trouble Formula Ampoule) from the brand. I was first introduced to the brand at the Seoul Blogger Brunch that I attended in September this year. I knew that they were a spa brand and many of their clients go to treat acne and different skin problems. I was also gifted the Acsen UV Protector Essence, but I haven’t tried it yet since I have so many sunscreens open right now. Anyway, let’s get on with the review.

What’s with the name and what’s this brand about?

Troi-are-uke is a mouthful to say at first but after a while it rolls off the tongue. On their website they explain that -areuke means beginning in Greek, and with that they came up with ‘Troiareuke’ -the beginning with of prescription skincare cosmetics. They are proud of their 1:1 skincare prescription. I actually did a small survey and was matched with the Selemix Serum when they contacted me. They also take a holistic approach to skincare taking into consideration chromatherapy and aromatherapy.

ACSEN

Acsen is one of the Troiareuke skincare lines. It is a combination of two skin concerns, acne and sensitive. The main ingredient in this line is Centella Asiatica which is a great skin ingredient for skin recovery and regeneration. Another main ingredient is a combination of beansprout and magnolia tree bark which they call ‘Selemix An’, which is good for skin protection, recovery, and inflammation.

ACSEN Selemix Serum

This serum was sent to me for me to write a review some months after the Seoul Blogger Brunch. I was going to review this by itself, but I thought why not kill ‘troi’ birds with one stone! You get it? “Troi” is 3 in French and also it’s how the beginning of how Troiareuke is spelled… you know.. but since I have three products instead of 2.. birds.. yeah… ok. Anyway, I was a little confused when they sent me this serum since I told them I had very dry skin. I was a bit worried at first because whenever I think of ‘acne’ products that it was going to be drying. However, I had nothing to worry about! It claims to minimize skin trouble and reduce scars.

This is serum contains the Selemix An (beansprout, magnolia tree bark) , sciadopitys verticillata extract (Japanese Umbrella Pine), Chamomile extract, Salicylic Acid, Centella Asiatica, and essential oils. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial ingredients are great for acne and sensitive skin types. This serum looks exactly like the Acsen Oil Cut Cleansing. The texture is very light and 2 pumps is how much I use each time to get a generous coating on my skin. It absorbs quickly without any sticky feeling. I get a nice hydrated feeling and it doesn’t irritate my ezcema patches either which is a major plus.

I noticed that with this serum that any pimples I got went away much quicker than if I didn’t include it in my skincare routine. Especially when I use it before I start my period, when I get hormonal pimples here and there, it does a good job of controlling not only the amount of pimples I get but also the longevity of them, even if I’ve been bad and squeezed the crap out of it. I really think this is a really awesome product. The only down is the price. It is hella expensive… its 156,000KRW for 100ml, but they did come out with a smaller 40ml size for 62,000KRW. Would I buy this for myself though? I don’t think I would, and the only reason is that even though I think it’s a great product I don’t think my skin needs it that much for that amount of money. If you are having problems with acne and sensitivity and can afford it, do buy it! I don’t have anything bad to say about this serum.

Bonus Mini Review: AGT Hydro Essence & Cell Energy Cream

With the Selemix Serum they sent some samples of the AGT Hydro Essence and Cell Energy Cream. The essence is a clear gel that helps with skin moisture levels and soothes the skin with 7 different oriental herbs and rooibos. This was also a nice treat. I can’t give you any significant results other than it was hydrating. The full size is 52,000KRW for 100ml.
The Cell Energy Cream was also a nice sample. The cream is lightweight and is formulated with Galactomyces ferment and Bifida ferment to help with skin elasticity. It also has Hyaluronic Acid and Lactobacillus to moisturize the skin. I liked the cream a lot so I used up the sample pretty quickly. It absorbs nicely and gives your skin a light glowy coating. My skin felt very bouncy and filled up, I would love to try the full size for a longer length of time. The full size is 130,000KRW for 250ml.

They have a shop in Myeongdong across from exit 1 inside SkyPark Hotel and they have a Korean online shop.

Troiareuke In Depth Product Review – ‘Trouble & Redness Be Gone!’ Healing Cocktail Mist

Hey Guys!

This is going to be a lengthy and detailed review on three Troiareuke products. I separated each product into 3 post because all together it was too long. So at the bottom there are links to the other two products! I hope that will be helpful for you guys to read and navigate.

This brand is a branch from a bigger company called MK Universal. They have other spa brand products and spa services including Troipeel.

I was also gifted the Acsen UV Protector Essence, but I haven’t tried it yet since I have so many sunscreens open right now. Anyway, let’s get on with the review.

Skin Complex Formula + Anti-Trouble Ampoule = Healing Cocktail

This was another gift I got from the Seoul Blogger Brunch. Funny story, I accidentally drank one of the ampoules because I thought it was a skincare drink! I think I drank the Cell Repair one… I didn’t feel sick afterwards, so that just goes to show that their ingredients are totally safe, even if you intend to one-shot it down your throat. Hahaha! I will always remember this experience.

 

 

The base liquid in which you add your desired ampoule is the Skin Complex Formula. This clear liquid is formulated with Pycnogenol which is an antioxidant that can be found in French Pine Bark, Pomegranate Extract, and Kava Extract. Pomegranate is a great antioxidant and Kava is a soothing plant ingredient. Each ampoule is a different color and have different effects. Green for calming, red for skin elasticity, yellow for brightening, and blue to help soothe and disinfect.

So I got the green Anti-Trouble Ampoule to mix in my mist. The process is quite fun, it’s really like making a cocktail! The spray is not very fine, at first it was a bit alarming because of how much liquid it sprayed! It was a decent dousing on my face. The mist is SO GOOD. I really, really like it. My skin is immediately hydrated, I can use it with makeup on and it won’t disturb it, and when my eczema is flared up I spritz a couple times and it is immediately calmed.

The mist is sold in two sizes, 60ml or 180ml and each ampoule is 10ml. The 180ml bottle can fill up to 2x10ml ampoules. I’m not sure if you can mix different ampoules or not. The 70ml option is (60ml+10ml) is 48,000KRW and the 200ml option is (180ml+10mlx2) is 100,000KRW.

Troiareuke In Depth Product Review – ‘Makeup Be Gone!’ ACSEN Oil Cut Cleansing

Hey Guys!

This is going to be a lengthy and detailed review on three Troiareuke products. I separated each product into 3 post because all together it was too long. So at the bottom there are links to the other two products! I hope that will be helpful for you guys to read and navigate.

Another main ingredient is a combination of beansprout and magnolia tree bark which they call ‘Selemix An’, which is good for skin protection, recovery, and inflammation.

ACSEN Oil Cut Cleansing

This was the first product I used, since I wear a whole lotta makeup everyday, so I am super into cleansing products. My first impression just reading the packaging was that it was gonna be weak sauce! I love oil cleansers and it’s my preferred method of removing makeup. So when I saw that it was oil-free, my expectation was low, boy was I wrong! This is seriously SO GREAT. I love this cleanser so much! Before I go on let me just go over the general info.

The bottle contains 120ml, they do have a 300ml one as well, but I don’t think they sell the big one. The main ingredients are Papaya which is a natural exfoliant, Aloe Vera which calms and moisturizes, and Usnea extract (lichen) that is an anti-bacterial ingredient. It has a runny gel consistency and spreads easily over the face without any sticky or oily feeling. It uses a micro-emulsion technique that removes oil and dirt without irritating the skin.

This is a great cleanser for everyone, especially those of you who want the makeup removing power of an oil cleanser but without the oily feeling. I squeeze a coin size amount into my hands I rub it in to my skin for a minute and wash it off with warm water. I don’t have to second cleanse, because it takes everything off. I was so surprised and amazed when I used it the first time. It was so gentle and not drying or irritating. I would totally buy this with my own money and I would recommend this one to anyone. The 120ml one costs 38,000KRW, it’s pricy but if you’re not having to double cleanse then in a way you’re saving money on buying another cleansing product and you’ll be saving time as well.

Mineral House for Troubled, Sensitive, and Inflamed Skin- One Brand Skincare Review

Hello everyone!

Thanks for joining me on another skincare review. Today I will be writing about one K beauty brand that specializes skincare for troubled, sensitive, and easily inflamed skin like eczema and photosensitivity. This brand is called Dr.Deep -Mineral House! I was really excited to try out their product when I received them in my K-Beauty Expo editor’s box. I have eczema on my forehead and neck and I’ve tried so many things to keep it under control. Some have worked, others made it worse. I’ve use it for over 3 three weeks and I’m ready to tell you all about it!

So before I start talking about the products I want to talk about the brand a little bit. Dr Deep is a natural mineral cosmetic that helps strengthen skin barrier by moisturizing and nourishing skin. It contains 30 kinds of minerals such as calcium. It helps to improve skin troubles such as atopic dermatitis, acne, psoriasis and water warts on children. The natural herbal ingredients they use helps soothe and moisturize sensitive skin. The formulate their products  without parabens, chemical surfactants, steroids, artificial flavors, and artificial preservatives

Aloe Soothing Gel

This was to me the the most mundane product out of the 4. Aloe to me is always a boring ingredient, but after reading the ingredient list I saw that it did have other ingredients as well. It contains 45% aloe juice from Jeju Island what moisturizes and relieves the skin. Fermented grain extracts (rice, soy, and millet) that are rich vitamins. It also contains fermented potato extract, ginseng extract, lavender and chamomile extract that relieves sensitive skin. Last notable ingredient was ceramide NP which helps builds skin moisture barrier.

I can’t say anything bad about this product, it does what it does. It’s not sticky and has no added fragrance. You could use as a gel toner or as very quick and light pre-moisturizer. You can use this for face, hands, and body. You can smooth over a thick layer of the gel as a face pack. As a stand alone product it’s not enough for dry skin, so follow up with a thicker moisturizer. For 120ml it’s 16,000KRW.

ACPA Cleansing Foam

This was another product that didn’t stand out since it was an acne product. I do get pimples here and there, but nothing too serious. I always find acne cleansers very drying and irritating on my eczema patches. However this one is specifically made for sensitive skin types. So if you do have acne and sensitive skin you might want to consider this purchase. It has a low percentage of salicylic acid of 0.3%. It contains Aloe extract, green tea extract, chamomile extract, and calendula extract.

The packaging is a foam pump type so it’s super fast and easy to use. The foam that comes out is nice and frothy. This one doesn’t give your skin that squeaky feeling, but it still feels clean after rinsing! It has a pH level of 4.5-6.5. I wouldn’t use it to take makeup off but as a second cleanser. Afterwards my skin doesn’t pull or feel super tight. This cleanser is a good preventative and during time when I do breakout I can use it without worrying about how dry my skin will feel afterwards. You get 150ml/5.28 oz of product for 25,000KRW.

Acer Mono Sap Essential Skin

This next product is a toner. It comes in a frosted glass bottle with a screw-off top. It is made with Acer Mono tree (maple tree) sap. Acer Mono Sap is rich in Ca, Mg, amino acid, and vitamin A, C. Natural mineral water is a strong skin barrier. It also has Beta-glucan and sodium hyaluronate  improves skin elasticity and aloe vera extract and baobab seed extract help condition and moisturize the skin. There is no added fragrance and it was a watery texture. It very gentle so it will be great for sensitive skin types. It’s hydrating and soothing as well. I quite like it and I’m almost done with the bottle. This in’t a product that will give you drastic results, but it’s a very nice toner! For 120ml/4.22 fl oz it’s 36,000 KRW.

Propolis Synergy Serum

The last product is the Propolis Synergy Serum. The packaging when I first saw it was a little disappointing, but they did changed the packaging! I think it looks much better. 70 percent of the Serum is Propolis extract! Propolis extract prevents and improves skin damage by strengthening the skin barrier. It is also formulated with natural ingredients like lactobacillus, white willow bark extract, oregano leaf extract, sea buckthorn, female ginseng, and others that are rich in ingredients of Omega-3, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The texture is a watery gel with no sticky after feeling. It absorbs fast and has no noticeable scent. Skin feels lightly hydrated. I can’t feel a difference in my skin even after few weeks, but I don’t think it’s a bad thing. It hasn’t made my skin worse from using it. I like it because it is very gentle and soothing. For 100ml/3.52 fl.oz it is 42,000KRW.

Last Thoughts

If you have sensitive skin, this is a great brand to try out. If you already have great skin and not very sensitive skin you might want to pass because you will not notice a huge difference. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s not effective, but usually with skincare people want to see big results. This brand is quite subtle and will require more effort than other chemically formed skincare and cosmetics. You can check out more of their products  at www.minehouse.co.kr. Also, they have international shipping through Amazon.

 

The Best Way to Get #Sheetfaced – Updated products

Hey guys

I wrote this blog post as a guest post over at another blog over a year ago and I never posted it on mine. It was left as a draft and I decided to look over it again, and I realized that some of my opinions have changed about some of the products I’ve recommended in the past. Not saying they are bad products, but since I have tried a lot more skincare over the last year or so I think I have become a sort of skincare snob, hahaha! Also, I want to let you know the products that I enjoy using now. Well anyway, read on for my sheet masking tips!

Eunogo – Hydrogen Toning Experience

Hi guys!

This is post is going to be about a skin treatment that I got through Eunogo about 2 weeks ago. I won a giveaway at the Seoul Blogger Brunch 2017, so I got another opportunity to partner with Eunogo. Eunogo is an award-winning Korean medical care concierge service and you can easily ‘shop’ for services on the website. They have very strict regulations with clinics and doctors they work with, so you can be assured that you’ll get the best service and outcome possible. They also have translators available so you won’t be in any confusion when you see the doctors and nurses.  Last time I got the Aqua Shine Injection and I was prepared for another intense skin treatment, but I was suggested a trendy skincare treatment called hydrogen toning.

What is hydrogen toning?

Hydrogen toning is an non-invasive toning skin care treatment that will give you more radiant, toned skin and youthful look, treating your fine wrinkles. So, if most of you paid attention in science class you know that hydrogen is essentially water. You might also wonder then how ‘hydrogen’ can make your skin more radiant and treat wrinkles. There has been research concerning that water pumped with extra hydrogen has the ability to reduce free radicals that damage living cells and tissues. Like most things in life it is debatable. In any case this hydrogen toning facial pumps this miracle water into the skin thus improving the look and texture of the skin. Keep reading if you want to know my experience.

Clinic and Service

The hydrogen treatment was done at a clinic in Gangnam called Urban Beauty. It is in one of the nicest building I’ve been in, it was very modern, artsy, and high-tech. The inside of the clinic was amazing! It had these pretty lights and modern furniture, and an outside terrace. As soon as I got there I was greeted by my coordinator and she helped me with signing in. I waited not too long and then I was escorted to the skincare offices on the other side of floor. Two aestheticians  were there and greeted me and gave me a robe to put on. The room was actually quite smaller than I expected but it had a cozy feeling and the the aestheticians made me feel very welcome and comfortable.

Cleansing & The Procedure 

So, I had a lot of makeup on that day, as usual, and it took a while to get my mascara off and stuff. I should have gone with no makeup on actually, but anyway they got most of it off. The aesthetician explained a bit about the hydrogen pumping machine called, Hydro Impact, before and during the procedure. She put some hydrating cream on my face for that it would be easier to glide the pump over my skin. The machine starts with a full cylindrical tank of hydrogen toning water and it is pumped to a pen nozzle that directly touches the skin. The hydrogen goes in deeply up to 1.2PPM. You can feel the pulsing of the water on your skin and sometimes it can drip out of the pen on weird angles of your face, but it’s just water so no biggie. Also, it doesn’t hurt at all. When it was done you can see the used water in a separate tank. It was a little gross seeing the murky water next to the clear hydrogen water tank.

Next it was time for the rubber mask! After she had put that on she put a dome cover over my face with red light. The Hydrocare machine pumps out 2 parts H2 (Hydrogen gas) and 1 part oxygen and the inhalation helps fight free radicals in the body and skin. It’s a clear dome so you won’t feel too claustrophobic.

After Treatment

After the treatment I felt refreshed and my skin looked brightened, but it only looked that way because she put a tone up whitening cream on after. At first I didn’t really notice anything different. I think I still had makeup residue on my face and I also had to go to another meeting afterwards so I didn’t have time right after to observe. After getting home and washing up. I did notice that my skin did look brighter. The next few days I could really tell a difference. The eczema patches on my forehead and neck seemed to be calmed down and just the overall appearance of my skin looked more radiant and even. The effects of the hydrogen toning is only for a few days in my opinion. The aesthetician did say that it is a series of treatments to see really big noticeable changes.

Final Thoughts and Costs

Eunogo did a great job of communicating and guiding me along the way as usual! I enjoyed the hydrogen skincare treatment. It was an interesting concept and I would like to try a few more sessions to see the full effect. Eunogo shop offers this procedure at $300, which is a 25% discounted and exclusive deal. You can find out more about the hydrogen toning by clicking here and other procedures at the Eunogo Shop. If you have the Kakao Talk app you can directly ask questions to them at their ID ‘eunogo’.

Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Cream Review

Hey everyone!

It’s going to be fall very soon and I know some of you might be looking for a fall/winter face cream and I have a recommendation and review for you! It is the Thank You farmer Miracle Age Repair cream. This rich cream is the perfect companion as weather becomes dry and colder. I’ve actually been using this cream since mid July and my dry skin loves it!

Packaging and Texture

The Miracle Age line consists of a toner, emulsion, serum, eye cream, and face cream. The cream comes in a frosted wine colored plastic jar. The cream holds 50ml/ 1.75 of the product. The rich cream inside has a faint floral scent. The cream is rich, but not greasy. The texture is very silky and as you apply it to the face it coats the face with a creamy hydration.

Formula

It is a brightening and an anti-wrinkle line. They claim to be a pre-antiaging line so, I would think this line is a good line for mid twenties to mid thirties. The cream is formulated with argan tree kernel oil, bisabolol, sanghwang mushroom, and other natural extracts. Argan oil nourishes, bisalolol has skin-healing properties, and the sanghwang mushroom has lots of vitamin C which is good for brightening and has lots of antioxidants. It also has ‘olive-crystal emulsions’ that gives the skin extra hydration. Also it has niacinamide, adenosine, panthenol, ceramide, betaine, collagen, squalene. It does contain fragrance and PEG, so just be aware if you are allergic or easily irritated by them.

My Review

I love this cream! Like I said before it coats the skin and it absorbs quickly while leaving your skin with nice nourished glow. I don’t think that this cream had brightening effects that I could notice, but I do use a lot of brightening products. I would totally recommend this to anyone.

The Thank You Farmer products are sold in Ulta and Cult Beauty. They have an online shop in Korean at www.tyfmall.co.kr and the cream costs 45,000KRW.

These products were sent to me from the K-Beauty Expo for review purposes. My opinions are my own and 100% honest!

Complexion Enhancer – 9 Wishes Ultimate Vanishing Balm

Poof!

Hey guys! I have a new review for you, it’s the 9 Wishes Vanishing Balm. This is a tone up cream. The tone up cream has been a popular beauty product in Korea. This kind of cream provides instant whitening of the skin. Not like a BB or CC cream, but just a plain white color. I’ve tried other tone up creams and I’ve hated them! They gave me an awful white cast ad it clung to all my dry patches. It was a total flop for me. So when the K-Beauty Expo sent this product in the review bag I already had my opinions about it. Let’s get on with the review!

Packaging and Texture/Finish

The packaging is a white plastic tube with a pump attached. It contains 50ml/1.75fl oz of product. The texture is like watery cream. When you go to rub it turns into a milky liquid. It absorbs quickly and the white pigment sticks to the skin well. It moisturizes without any sticky or greasy feeling. The skin looks lighter, ‘toned up’, and the skin looks like it has a soft focus. A slightly powdered appearance.

Formulation

The cream does have a brightening and anti-wrinkle effects. It is formulated with a skin brightening complex, Botaniceutical Plus-10. A mix of natural extracts used in Korean Herbal medicine. It does contain titanium dioxide, so it is a sun protectant too. It also uses sea water which is rich in minerals. The Niacinamide and glutathione helps with whitening and brightening of the skin. There is no added fragrance so that is great!

My Review

I was actually quite impressed by this cream compared to the other tone up creams I’ve tried. It applies nicely and the white cast isn’t terrible. It’s good for those days I don’t want to wear makeup. I like the blurring effect as well, it makes it look like my skin. I’m not sure how it will look on darker skins though. I wouldn’t purchase this with my own money, I just don’t use it enough. I’m just not a big fan of these tone up creams. I will end my review saying that if you want to try a tone up cream I would recommend this one. They do have an original and glow versions. This is 44,000KRW (pricy!) and you can get this on the online mall, http://9wishes.co.kr.

This was sent to me by the K-Beauty Expo for review purposes, everything I’ve written was my own opinion.
