HanSkin Moolbalm (Pink) #Kbeauty

20180628_150621

Wanted to review this quite a while back after i loaded onto my instastory and dayre but did not have a chance to because i was caught up with work and trying out new cooking recipes! Not really recipes i think..more like hmmm experiencing new dishes and cooking styles.

This is my favourite tone up balm (colour correcting) which i bought it when i was in Korea in Oct 2017.

It is supposed to help to brighten and even out your skin tone before you apply your Bb cushion or foundations. Some people use this alone like a bb balm but i use it as a primer before i pat on my bb cushion. It is abit matt so i don’t use it alone and coverage is not there. I apply this and then my DPC cushion.

HanSkin Moolbalm (Pink).

Hanskin is the first brand to develop BB cream and their BB cream really sold out.

Their concealer is very good too! It is called the Blemish Cover Concealer which comes in 3 tones. I reviewed before 1 or 2 yrs back. Now they changed packaging and came with free concealer brush at ₩7,900. The concealer was sold out in the colour “Bright” after some famous Korean make up youtubers raved about it. This colour is damn hard to get. Everytime i want to buy but cannot find because out of stock.

You can buy HanSkin products in Korea’s Olive Young stores.

I like how it brightens and tone up my skin before i apply my Bb cushion.

Because the tone is pinkish, not many people will suit this balm. Some people will end up with greyish skin tone. Just like how i cannot use Sulwhasoo’s cushion cos the cushion makes my skin looks yellow lol.

This balm comes in 2 tone – Shimmer and Pink. The one im using is Pink. Shimmer one is in cushion form and works more like a whole face high lighter.

I cannot remember how much i bought it but it should be around ₩15,000 .

If you are looking for a tone up balm, you can give this a shot but before you buy, try the sample first. You can buy from Olive Young in Korea.

If you are keen to get online, GlobalHmall in Gmarket does sell this. I blogged about the list of shops and departmental stores that ship to Sg few posts back. GlobalHmall is where i get my stuff too. Sometimes the deal there is cheaper than i get from store because there sre discount coupons. So i even get from there and ship it to my Mil house in Korea. Just that if i ship to her house i get free shipping lo. And i bring back home everything when i go Korea.

Cannot wait for next trip leh. I need stock up my skincare. 3 more mths to the trip and i already finished up my stock ups which i bought last year. Heng ah..Guardian got 30% off skincare products from 28th June to 1st July. I went to grab some from CNP Laboratory brand first to last me till end Sept.

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 !
