[BENTON] - Cacao Moist and Mild Serum

I like Benton and they been introducing quite a bit of new products lately. I was slightly beating myself up for getting the Cacao Moist and Mild Serum because I got the toner and cream. I was just one away from the complete collection! So imagine my surprise when I got the serum in my goodies bag from Skinvestment! Thank you!! 💓

[107 ONEOSEVEN] - Feminine Body Soap + α

After the success with the OneOSeven Rose Vinegar Water, I was really intrigued by the other OneOSeven product I received from Be Mused Korea during the Skinvestment Beauty Date x MTL event back in May.

It is the OneOSeven (I am just gonna go 107 from now on) Feminine Body Soap + α, which is a body soap with fermented mugort vinegar and is designed for you private. It is to help balance healthy menstrual cycle of your body and will create a moisture barrier and lock in the moisture.

[SOYBIO+] - Fermented Mist

The other SoyBio+ product I received from the Beauty Date x MTL event hosted by Skinvestment was the Fermented Mist.

[SOYBIO+] - Fermented Shampoo

One of the more interesting products I received from Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL event was the SoyBio+ Fermented Shampoo! I haven't tried much Korean shampoos before but it sounded very interesting after Daint/Carmen's review of it!

[APOTERRA] - Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud with Rosehip + Acai

I received multiple samples from Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL event back in May and Apoterra left quite an impression on me! The card they sent to each of us were all handwritten! It's a a small gesture but it's so thoughtful to send handwritten notes with samples. I really appreciate it!

Now, let's get into the product they sent. Which is the Hisbiscus Exfoliating Mud with Rosehip _ Acai.

[FRUTOSE] - Face Care Fruit Oils

Another Canadian brand I was introduced to at the Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL event was Frutose. This is a new brand that started in Toronto recently and their focus is that all of their products contains ingredients that are either derived from or is present in fruits! What was explained to us at the event was that if fruits are good for our body through ingestion, then it could be good for our skin through absorption as well.

[WOODLOT] - Nourishing Facial Oil

I was lucky to attend Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL event in Montreal back in May. I was even more lucky that this year's event was focused on green skincare! I am always up for some skincare products to try! Today's review is the Woodlot Nourishing Facial Oil.

[B.LIV] - Immerse Me Utmost Moisture Hydrating Mask

Today's review is on B.liv Immerse Me Utmost Moisture Hydrating Mask. Which was provided to me by the brand at the Skinvestment Beauty Date x MTL event held back in May.

[ROUTINE] - Superstar Deodorant

Hey peeps, I am back with another review of a product I received from the Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL event back in May. This time, this item is a little special to me because they are from my hometown!! <3 That makes me kind of excited to see a product made from Cowtown!

The product is Superstar, a natural deodorant made by Routine. This is a natural deodorant that contains activated charcoal to detoxify, magnesium to reduce the stress sweats, prebiotics to keep the skin healthy, and a touch of baking soda for additional deodorizing. This is a cream deodorant that is usable by even the most sensitive skin.

[107 ONEOSEVEN] - Rose Vinegar Water

I love roses! I think I say it multiple times now, but I really do love them! Any skincare products that says roses on them instantly has my attention!! So I was really excited to hear 107 OneOSeven coming out with a Rose Vinegar Water last year.

[BENTON] - Cacao Moist and Mild Toner

I was fortunate to be selected as one of the testers for Benton's newest product, the Cacao Moist and Mild toner. I was so excited, as I got the cream as well. I also received the serum from the Skinvestment event last weekend, so I have the entire line to test. However, life got the best of me and I haven't used the toner enough times to warrant a full review. So, instead, this will be a first impressions post.

[LACVERT] -Aloe Moisture Soothing Mask

TesterKorea, one of the websites I like to use, had a mystery mask for $1 a while ago. I was doing a mask haul so I added one to it. It turned out to be the Lacvert Aloe Moisture Soothing Mask. I have no idea what it is supposed to do besides it has aloe in it and it is supposed to be moisturizing and soothing. So I am basically going in blind. Let's see how it goes for me.

[SECRET KEY] - Syn-ake Wrinkle Mask Pack

I think I received the Secret Key Syn-ake Wrinkle Mask Pack from a mystery box from Secret Key a couple years ago. I never really paid attention to it as anti-aging wasn't much of a concern to me. But given how I am getting older and the expiration date is coming up, I decided it is worth a try.

[JOLSE] SKIN&LAB Barrierderm Intensive Cream 50ml

I had reviewed a few products from Jolse and always ended up loving them! Today's review is the Skin & Lab Barrierderm Intensive Cream. I am so excited to try this as it seems to be designed for my dehydrated skin living in a dry environment. But this will only be a first impression instead of a full review. I will explain why further on.

[SKINFOOD] - Mint Sparking Foot Peeling Socks

I love peeling feet masks, they are so satisfying to use when big chunks of skin peel off! My favourite is the Tonymoly Shiny Foot Super Peeling Liquid, but I wasn't a big fan of how it left a chemical taste in my mouth so I went looking for a new one. I was disappointed with a couple of masks I tried before I stumbled upon the Skinfood Mint Sparkling Foot Peeling Socks. Let's see how it performs eh.

[SOC SENSE OF CARE] - 3 Step AC Dressing Mask

Multi-step mask provides a convenience for those who are travelling. I haven't traveled much in recent year so the SOC 3 Step AC Dressing Mask in my stash has not been used. I decided to just try it and see how it performs. So let's see.

[THE FACE SHOP] Real Nature Lotus Face Mask

I love flowers, I gravitate toward anything that has flowers on their packaging, especially flowers that I like. And this is exactly how The Face Shop got me! I haven't had the best experience with their masks in the past, and I been avoiding them. But when I needed some cheap padding product to maximize the shipping weight, I thought the  Real Nature Lotus Face Mask would be perfect!

[STYLEKOREAN] - Pink In Blossom Box

[BLOSSOM JEJU] - Pink Camellia Soombi Blooming Flower Cream

I been lusting over Blossom Jeju ever since I saw Fanserviced's review on its serum.

I decided to treat myself when Take Good Care had a sale on the brand last year. They were really kind to answer my questions about the brand and its products. They recommended that I try the Pink Camellia Soombi Blooming Flower Cream as I live in a very dry and cold environment. They felt that the cream would be best in keeping my skin moisturized during the cold winters. So I bought the cream and savoured it. I saved it and resisted the temptation to open it until winter has hit Cowtown. I haven been using it the past winter and just finished it. So I am ready to post my review on it.

[MEDIHEAL] - Pumpkinade Mask

I went a little crazy at Daiso Vancouver a couple years ago, and I was surprised they carried Mediheal masks! I picked up the Pumpkinade Mask. Fast forward to current day, and these masks are all available at Superstores/Loblaws in Canada. It is now around $1.5 instead of $2 per mask. Let's see how I like it.

[LOVEMORE] - Pearl Barley and Milk Smoothing Mask Sheet

You know, I eaten enough pearl barley in my life that I actually grown to really like the taste of it. I know in Taiwan, they have the barley water that is supposed to be good for your body. And I actually quite like the taste of it. So I wasn't too surprised to see that barley is one of the flavours for Lovemore. The mask to be reviewed is the Pearl Barley and Milk Smoothing Mask sheet and let's see how it performs.

[LOVEMORE] - Bamboo Liquid Moisturizing Mask Sheet

My skin has been dry and flaky as I haven't been really taking are of it. So I needed a pick me up to get back into the game. The Lovemore Bamboo Liquid Moisturizing Mask Sheet is recommended for dehydrated or dry skin (hey that's me!) as it is supposed to be really moisturizing with the water from bamboo. So let's see how it performs.

[LOVEMORE] - Herbal Saussurea Involucraga Revival Mask Sheet

Another day, another Lovemore mask to review. I am actually surprised at how much Lovemore masks I still had on hand. I really thought I had used most of it, but nope. I still got tons. 

Today's mask is the Herbal Saussurea Involucrata Revival Mask sheet. That's a mouthful eh? I am not sure what that plant is but it sounds like it's very Traditional Chinese Medicine.

[LOVEMORE] - Red Pearl Barley Whitening Mask Sheet

Today's mask is the Lovemore Red Pearl Barley Whitening Mask Sheet.

I like red barley, it taste good and I grew up eating it in my soups. But whitening.. I am sorry, But I am TERRIBLE in telling a difference. So I am already expecting to not like this mask. Though I will try my best to keep an open mind.

Saturday, 14 April 2018

[LOVEMORE] - Rosa Hybrida Whitening Mask Sheet

I feel like this is going to turn into a series of Lovemore mask reviews. Hope that's ok!

Today's mask is Lovemore's Rosa Hybrida Whitening Mask sheet, which is suppose to be very hydrating. This is due to the organic Taiwanese roses used, which penetrate deeper into the skin and provide nutrition for a brighter skin. It also contain deep sea water that contains smaller particles that allows it to penetrate deeper and provide  deeper hydration.

Battle of the Peripera Ink Series - Part 1

Oh my gosh, are you guys ready for this??? I have been planning this for a while now, and I can't wait to share it with you guys!! EEK!!O(≧▽≦)O

I noticed that most of the visits to my blog is to the post regarding the Peripera Ink Velvet and the Airy Ink Velvet. I know some people quite like the wear time comparison and thought I should prepare a post for all of the Ink series that's available. It had been sitting in the back of my head for a while. It didn't come to fruition until I inadvertently gathered all of the Ink series.

[INSTITUT ESTHEDERM] - Cellular Concentrate Fundamental Serum

The last product from the Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL is the Institut Esthederm's Cellular Concentrate Fundamental Serum. This is my last product to review! I can't believe how long it has taken me to get to it. But I wanted to take my time to use this product and review it. So let's get on with the review shall we?

Friday, 6 April 2018

[L'AFFAIR ANIMAL] - Whitening Panda Mask

The last in the L'affair Animal series is the Whitening Panda Mask. I been saving this as pandas are special to me. (If you don't know, my dog's name is Panda. My fondness for panda grew from my love for my dog. ^_^). The other two animal masks has been meh at best for me, so I am hoping this will do better. 

Thursday, 5 April 2018

[LUNA NECTAR] - Moon Boost Serum

I received the Luna Nectar Moon Boost Serum from Skinvestment x MTL even back in November 2017. It took me a while to try this and now I am finally ready to post my review! But first, let's discuss the brand a little.

[L'AFFAIR ANIMAL] - Aqua Blue Sheep Mask

Hmmm I didn't have the best experience with the first L'Affair animal mask. It was super cute but the scent was terrible and left me unhappy. I decided to try the Aqua Blue Sheet Mask and see how it goes.

[L'AFFAIR ANIMAL] - Soothing Monkey

Can you believe it? I never tried a character mask before~! I tend to avoid them for some unknown reason but chose these from Skin18 a couple years ago. I picked a series of them, and today's mask is the L'Affair Animal Soothing Monkey as my skin was quite upset with blemishes everywhere. So it's perfect timing to try and see how it does, seeing how it is one of the rare occasions my skin is so upset.

[SWEET LEILANI] -Pressed Powder

I was introduced to quite a few Canadian cosmetics brands by Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL. One of them was Sweet Lelani Vegan CosmeticsThis is a vegan cosmetic brand from Langley BC. 

I received their pressed powder for review and this will also be a first impression as I don't use makeup too often. But as always, all opinions expressed are my own.

[A'PIEU] - Cocorico x A'Pieu Silk Blanket Mask Silver

I don't know how to introduce this mask! I honestly bought the A'Pieu x Cocorico Silk Blanket Mask Silver to make up for the weight. I didn't have much high hopes for it, just thought it's gimmicky. I finally decided to try it and here's what I thought of it. 

Friday, 2 March 2018

[ELATE COSMETICS] - Universal Creme

One of the products I received from Skinvestment's Beauty Date MTL was Elate Clean Cosmetic's universal creme in Love! I am going to do a first impression post on the product as I don't use it often enough to warrant a full review. It may take months or years, so let's just settle on a first impression shall we?

[BENTON] - Tea Tree Cleansing Water

I finished using/dumping out my cleansing water and had been looking to buy a new bottle. I was recommended Bioderma and managed to snag one while on sale. But when Benton started to recruit reviewers for their new Tea Tree Cleansing Water, I just couldn't resist applying. Cleansing/micellar water is like the perfect tool for a lazy bum like me. So you can imagine that I was pretty excited to hear that I was selected! Yay! So read on for my review on the Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water.

[HEALAVIE] - Brightening Serum Mask

One of the masks I received from the Skinvestment's Beauty Date x MTL back in November is the Healavie Brightening Serum Mask. I was excited to try it as I love its minimalist design, and loved their sun gel. (But this was nearly impossible to photograph well because the lettering blends into the background. 😑😒)

[ANNIE'S WAY] - Calendula + Chamomile Softening Jelly Mask

I first heard of the Annie's Way jelly masks from my friend, whom introduced me to AB, years ago. We were looking at Hyaluronic Acid mask and how it had received rave reviews online. However, it was a pain to get it from online as the only source available for shipping to Canada was YesStyles and they were well marked up.

[HEALAVIE] - Soft Cover Waterdrop Sun Gel

I must admit, I really don't like using sunscreen. I am lazy, and the usage of sunscreen requires a double, sometimes triple, cleanse. If I am not careful in removing everything, I end up with large painful breakouts all over my face. It is just a pain in the ass for me and not worth the trouble. But as I learn more about skincare, I have been educated over and over again about how important sun protection is. So I have set out to find a lightweight sunscreen that doesn't leave a whitecast (Seriously, I am pale enough as it is, I don't need to look like a ghost!).

[URANG] - True Rose Repair Essence

My love for roses is not a secret at this point so it shouldn't a surprise that I gravitate toward rose products. The product I want to talk about is the Urang True Rose Repair Essence and I received it from Skinvestment's Beauty Date Montreal!!

Sense of Care - Syn-ake Mask

I got a whole bunch of free masks from Skin 18 a while back for free but only paid for shipping. I haven't heard of most of the brands and have been putting off on using them. But time has come that I need to use them up, so expect a lot of mask reviews from the different brands in the upcoming year. The first one I have tried is the Sense of Care Syn-ake Mask, which is marked as Soc 3D Beauty Serum Face Mask (syn-ake) on Skin 18.
