Used up my Pyungkang Yul set in June and got my housemate to help me buy this set when she went back in June.
I started to love this series after i bought and used the moisturier last year when i went to Korea in Oct.
I bought the Toner and Fluid which i apply after my serum.
So my steps are Cleansing -> Toner -> Essence -> Serum -> Fluid -> Moisturiser.
Ehh..when i first used the moisturiser , i am not used to the scent. Because all the while i have been using Hera and other brands which gives a more derma or perfumed scent. Whereas for this Hanyul artemisia series, it smells abit like freshly cut grass lol. But it is very mild and i find it quite pleasant actually ! Smells very light and refreshing. The texture of the toner and fluid is also smooth and does not leave sticky feeling so it is easy to apply make up after that. It is very moisturising and i really like it. So this coming Sept when i go to Korea to fulfil my daughter-in-law duties during Chuseok , im going to stock up this and another series (Rice series which is pink bottle).
I love how this moisturiser and calm my skin without feeling sticky. It is also refreshing. Packaging also looks atas and the bottle is actually quite heavy. It absorbs into my skin quite fast too. I really love this!!! Suitable for Sg weather.
If you prefer something not so creamy and light in texture , the artemesia series from Hanyul will suit you ! You can get from any Aritaum stores in Korea. If i remember correct (how much i paid back to my housemate) , the toner + fluid set costs less than SGD 40.
New mask review from KR !
I thought i was unable to head to KR in Sept so i asked a friend to help me buy from Olive Young (KRW 35,000) .
This mask is very hard to find because very fast out of stock ! I was contemplating between the Honey , Ginseng or Vitamin Tree one. Decided to get the Honey mask because it is the more popular choice. There must be a reason why it is the more popular choice right.
How to Use ?
Unlike your usual sleeping mask where you can apply and go to sleep , it is better to use this mask during shower because you need to wash it off. So what i do is that , i will cleanse my face , towel dry and then apply this mask before i wash it off after about 15mins.
The texture is very sticky and ermm…sounds disgusting but when you apply on your face , it is like smearing jam on your whole face. Very sticky and all. I think if you were to leave it overnight , all the ants will come and stick onto your face leh !
I was taken back by effect and how it makes my skin soft and smooth after that. Now wonder this mask was quite popular. Skin also looks brighter. Worth buying and trying.
What i don’t like about it ?
The smell and it is really damn sticky (because of the honey ingredients). The mask got onto my hair and i need to shampoo my fringe and side burns again. So now smart liao..i will wear a headband and hide all my hair behind so it will not get to my hair.
The whole mask’s texture is just like strawberry jam + peanut butter. It smells like very thick and pure honey. This brand is known to be organic so i guess that’s why.
Besides the smell and the stickiness, i think everything is okay and i really like it ! If only it comes in leave on mask version.
Buy or not ?
YES ! If you don’t mind the hassle and the thick organic honey smell.
