I noticed my skin looks more translucent and radiant lately. I actually changed my entire skincare products because the previous sets finished already and so i got new ones in October. Got new toners (Mamonde) , serums (Nature Republic and CNP) , ampoules ( CNP ) , emulsions (Mamonde) , moisturisers (Nature Republic and Real Barrier) and essences (Hanskin).
Here are some of the few i just got recently and started using. The rest are still nicely kept in my stock up corner lol,
Hanskin Hyaluron Skin Essence.
Price : KRW 30,000 (but i got it at 50%off for KRW 15,000 during Watsons storewide sales).
Texture : Feels abit like liquid serum. Not very watery and easy to glide and absorbed into the skin.
This feels really good and easy to apply. I really like this because of the texture and how easy it is to glide onto the skin. It is very moisturising and smells good too. After applying it and absorption , i can see that my skin looks more hydrated and radiant.
It is very hard to find Hanskin stuff. I got this at Watsons though.
Nature Republic Shea Butter Steam Cream
Price : KRW 30,000 ( But i bought it during Korea Sale Fiesta at 50% off KRW 15,000 )
Texture : Feels like the soya bean pudding ( ya , i know right , what a description ! ). This is actually a popular product because of the moisturizing effect. It comes in 3 different types : Fresh , Moist and Ultra. I got the Moist one.
It promises 48hrs of hydration. I use this as a night cream/sleeping pack because it is very moisturising. Will be too moisturising to be used a moisturiser. It really hydrates my skin overnight when i sleep in air conditioned room. I really love this. It also hydrates my skin when i was in Korea during autumn.
I think this bottom can be used very long. Because of our humid weather , i do not need to apply that much.
I bought this as wedding favours for my Korean wedding too.
After 2 weeks of use , still got so much left. If you are looking for something hydrating and affordable , this is one product you should get.
CNP Invisible Peeling Cleansing Gel.
Price : KRW 18,000 ( Got it at a discount during Korea Sale Fiesta too ! )
Texture : Watery Gel like and easy to foam up. I like the smell of the foam. Smells like those aesthetic clinic used cleansers. It is not very drying also. It promises to remove dead skin cells also. My skin looks brighter and clearer these days. So not sure if this is the product or the one below and all above that is contributing to it.
Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream
Price : KRW 66,000
Somehow i feel that this maybe the one ? I use this as night cream because it is quite oily and rich despite being a “watery cream”. It is very hydrating and i like the smell. Feels very luxurious also. But ..the bottle is very big and chunky. Super mafan to open the cap. I apply abit only because it is abit oily. I would recommend this as a day moisturiser. Because
Transparent gel like “watery cream” with gold flakes.
I apply this on alternate days and find improvement in my skin tone.
I bought the serum too. Review later !
Nature Republic Aloe Vera Cooling Eye Serum
Price : KRW 10,900
Not much of a cooling effect as it stated but quite moisturising.
Texture : Abit sticky.
Ehh.. this one not really a MUST BUY product. Unless you are looking for eye gel at the moment , this can be one of your choices.
I use that to gently massage my eyebags . I usually keep all the emptied tubes and just use the rollers to massage my eyebags.
That’s all for today ! Lots more to review after i opened and used them for a week !
