Hello lovely people!
As promised in my last post here follows part 2 of my big Korean Skincare Haul 🙂 I’m suuper excited about all the products and I can’t stop admiring them on the bathroom shelf. I’m just in the process of trying each one of them, which has been making my daily skincare routine so much more fun. I’m also so spoiled for choice that I sometimes can’t decide what to use, a situation I’ve never had before and probably means I won’t be shopping for more skincare products anytime soon lah *wink*.
Ok, scroll down if you’re curious to see what I’ve got this time…!
Selena 5-layer Cotton Pads
Well, there’s not that much to say about them…they’re cotton pads. The only difference is that these cotton pads are square and large and can be peeled into multiple layers so you can have the desired thickness you’re looking for. I got these mainly because I thought they will be perfect for essence-masks, as shown on the box!
Skin Food Black Sugar Mask
Skin Food is a very well known Korean skincare brand with a wide selection of face masks. I chose the black sugar mask because I wanted to incorporate a scrub into my skincare routine for every now and then. I’ve seen a lot of good reviews about it and for £7.30 I think the price is more than reasonable. The Brazilian black sugar in this mask is supposed to be rich in vitamins, enzymes and contains glycolic acid to gently remove dead skin. Different from normal scrubs, you’re supposed to first massage this on damp skin and then leave it like a mask for about 5-10 minutes before washing it off so the other ingredients can work.
Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Pack
With an intruiging name like this, I felt like I just have to try it. As the name and the picture on the pot suggests, the main component in this mask is sourced from…well, pigs. According to Elizaveccas description, it contains more than 50’000 mg of pork collagen to firm and moisturise the skin. It also has macadamia seed oil, fermented soybean extract and cacao seed oil. I’m quite impressed and definitely pleased that the mask does not contain any parabens, ethanol, mineral oil, artificial dyes, benzophenone or mineral oil!
Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream
Once you get over the fact that they contain snail slime, you’ll discover why these creams are aaall the rage these days! This cream contains a whopping 92% of snail mucus. That’s the most concentrated snail cream I’ve seen so far! This cream is moisturising, reduces wrinkles and can even fade acne scarring. The last point was particularly important to me because I’ve been looking for something to get rid of some post break out hyperpigmentation along my jawline. Honestly, I’ve got some pretty high expectation on this one and will definitely let you know if this works!
Cremorlab Snowfalls Melting Cream
Last but not least, another moisturising cream! Apparently Michelle Phan is a big fan of this Korean brand. I’ve been looking for a nice, rich moisturising cream that I can use as the last step of my skincare routine to really lock in all the previous products I’ve used. I’m a sucker for cute packaging and alluring names and just couldn’t look away when I found this cream on sasa’s website. Their key ingredient is the healing and vitalizing T.E.N water, which is a special thermal water abundant in minerals, calcium, magnesium, potassium and more to penetrate and benefit the skin. The texture of this cream imitates and even looks like snow and is meant to be moisturising throughout the day while increasing elasticity. According to Cremorlab, this cream can lock in moisture for up to 72 hours!
…and these are all the products from haul nr. 2.
Some of these products are very popular right now and I’m very curious to find out if they’re all worth the hype. I’ll be testing and experimenting with them and make sure to write detailed reviews in due time. Let me know if there is anything you’re particularly interested in so I can prioritise 😉
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
