COSRX Two In One Poreless Power Liquid



Hi Everyone!

After several days of working in this review, I am here ready for you. For me the skincare is is indispensable now in my daily life, because I discovered that it doesn´t matter how much time or effort you spend in your makeup If your skin is not in a good condition nothing else matters so now I take my skincare seriously. I have a specific routine and obviously, I starting being this as trial and error because I found I didn´t know so much about my skin type. I started with my skin being like oily skin, and now, in fact, my skin is sensitive combination and I guess I have good days and bad days. The skin is a body organ that works so much and everything involved respect to my skin.

I received this essence with my COSRX Set and If someone knows I really love this brand because makes me understand a little more about my skincare and my skin type and that I don´t need 10 products for making my skin look good and the reason is that that the skincare is a combination of everything. In this set of COSRX, I received this essence that the website claims to be in the middle to be the essence and a toner. I use this product like an essence after my toner and I´ve used this product around two months and this is a great complement in my skincare routine. So to start with this review. 

Ingredients

Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water, Butylene Glycol, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Water, Pentylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Betaine Salicylate, Arginine, Betaine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Allantoin, Panthenol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Menthyl Lactate, Mentha Haplocalix Extract

The expiration date is 12 months after open the essence

I am not a chemistry I am physiician but thanks to a little of research I want to talk about some ingredients of this essence:

Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water: This contains in a natural form salicylic acid but in a natural form so is different from the salicylic acid itself and has anti-inflammatory properties too so this particular and the first ingredient helps to soothe the skin.

Of course, this is an extract similar to salicylic acid (similar not equal) and that has to be subjected to a chemical process to be effective.

Betaine Salicylate: This is one of my favorite ingredients because it is gentle with my sensitive skin and helps exfoliate but from the inside of the skin because it is, in fact, a BHA. If you want to read more about BHA Click HERE

Allantoin: This ingredient is used in most cases like moisturizer and calm skin irritations for me this is a great ingredient If you suffer from sensitive skin because of this calm my skin a lot.

Menthyl Lactate: Provides a cooling and calming effect. I know that this is used too like a fragrance because is a derivated of menthol and If you don´t like or your skin not tolerate the menthol probably is not the best for you. But this for me calms down my skin a lot.

COSRX Two In One Poreless Power Liquid 


Tannin and BHA ingredients effectively care your skin pore and sebum.
Two in one product that contains salicylic acid (natural BHA) extracted from white willow barks and tannin which helps your skin pore to shrink.
Plants base weak acidic products assures safe to use even for sensitive skin users.
Can be used as cleansing toner in the morning and balancing toner at night.
The Corn-mint extract instantly cools and hydrates your skin to help your pore to shrink.

Directions & Caution

After Spread the small quantity

Before and After

I want invite you to watch my video review

PROs and CONs

PROs
- Affordable price
- Good quantity 
- Cooling Effect
- Tghtening pores effect
- Moisturizing
- Luminous effect
- Helps to reduce the redness

CONs
- In many countries you only can buy this product online.

Conclusions

I started this essence around two months y I started to feel the effect since the first usage. When I started this product my skin was through a process of redness, super sensitive and breakouts. I was super stressed I didn´t know idea what to do with my life (I don´t know what to do with my life yet) but my skin It was super sensitive and it was a pimple after another every day.

So I decided to change my skincare routine and have fewer products and new products so I changed my cleanser and I changed my essence to this one even I decided to use only this product for around 5 days on the night after my cleanser I noticed great results. First I noticed my skin calmed and It was and at the same time moisturized.

The first I noticed was my pores were tighter and less noticeable especially on my cheeks zone (the photo is of my cheeks). By the way, that is the first immediate effect, the cooling and refreshing.

Now the long-lasting effect is not tightening because this is only temporal, I could say that this tightening effect only last few hours. But the long-lasting effect is that this helps to heal faster the pimples and helps to pops ups the disgusting mix of serum blood and all the content that has a pimple naturally without too much trouble.

I have sensitive combination skin and I guess this is amazing for me because calms my skin reduces the size or at least the look of my pores. And I did not have any allergic reaction and  I am very happy with all the benefits. I want to recommend this product If you are looking for a product for your routine that helps you to calm down your skin.

9th Birthday of my Blog

Hi Everyone!

We are celebrating the 9th year of this blog! For me the odd numbers are special. And this is the ninth anniversary of this blog I feel so happy. Tonight I was tired and I was remembering how just like yesterday nine years ago I published the first post here in my blog. This blog is my passion I work a lot of every day here because I am happy to do this. This for me beyond to be only a place where I can share my opinions about the products that I try this is one place that It has been so wonderful. I want to say thanks to all the people that follow me and I know that I have some followers that are been with me in this road and I feel super happy by all the support.ヽ(*・Ο‰・)οΎ‰


I know that I am not the best but I am always trying to give the best quality all the time. For me, quality is over the quantity. Wow I was remembering It is almost a decade (⌒▽⌒)♡ since I started and for me, this is a way to live. Sometimes is difficult because I want to publish more frequently. Like just yesterday that I wanted to publish this but I was super tired. I hope to keep growing my blog and improving my content.

This year I learned a lot of new stuff and now is my time for growing like a person. Obviously, I am still working at that point in managing my time but I know that the hard work will be always recompensed. ・(/Ο‰\)・゚゚・. I can not see my life without blogging for me this is an important part of my life.

I feel relaxed because to this point in my life like a blogger I am a physician and want I started this blog, I had not started college yet. Now I want to make postgraduate specialization and that is amazing because when I started I was just a teenager and now I am a grown woman.

And yeah at some point I wanted to stop, not only with this blog with everything in my life. And in someway the blog gave me a purpose(。T Ο‰ T。) By the way that quote is one of the best books that I´ve read during this year and I feel that way too.

By the way, I keep working in new reviews. I am excited to share upcoming reviews about new products that I really enjoyed the past days. ♡\( ̄▽ ̄)/♡ Well to this point I guess is not possible to reach my reading goal but I am happy with the books that I have read during this year.  Sincerely I can not think about what is gonna be of me or what are my plans. With my blog, I hope to publish all my delayed posts soon. 

Happy Blog Anniversary ♡Οƒ(≧Ξ΅≦Οƒ) ♡

BBIA Last Concealer


Hi Everyone!


It has been some days since I was planning to publish this post but the reason because I did not published this few days ago is ebcause I was barely at home for sleep and because sincerely I´ve been so tired. But now I am here with a new review about a product that I´ve been using since few months ago BBIA Last Concealer this will be a short review because I´ve talking just a little about this concealer. This product is not sponsored by this brand or any webstore.

The reason because I picked this brand of concealer It was because this brand offer goood products with affordable price which is good because I am always in a tight budget. Well move on to this review.

Betails in Box

This shade is #01 Light Beige

BBIA Last Concealer 6.2g 

Features

Flawless cover like skin correction.
Dense powder adheres evenly to the skin, covering skin trouble, flush, and pores, transforming into porcelain-like clean skin. Light finish like my own skin.
Super light-weight texture has been applied to the skin, presenting comfortable texture.
Darkening ZERO! Clear all day. Expresses the skin bright as if the make-ups have just been applied.


Expiration Date

Swatch

After blending the product

Before and After

PROs & CONs
PROs
- Affordable price
- Easy application
- Good quantity
- Natural finish
- Long-lasting effect
- Sheer coverage

CONs
- In many countries you only can buy this product online.

Conclusions

I usually apply the concealer after the BB Cream or foundation and I found after my first application It was that this product blends pretty well with my foundation or BB Cream. This concealer provides a matte effect so I recommend always maintain the under eye area moisturized before applying this concealer. This concealer provides a light beige color with sheer coverage. If you really want to conceal so scars or pimples I don´t recommend this concealer because the coverage is sheer for me this works a little like a highlighter.

I like because this provides a little that blur effect because it blends so good with my foundation or BB Cream that provides a natural and not cakey effect. Something that is a positive point is that this product is not cakey. So I really like this product, and the cost is around $6 which is a good deal too. Only that If you are looking for high coverage this is not the option that I could recommend for you. But has a good price, good effect, and long-lasting effect so I definitely going to repurchase this product.

RATING
★★

MISSHA Radiance Velvet Foundation SPF30 PA++


Hi Everyone!


I can´t believe that we are so to few days of the blog anniversary and to the Christmas time. I am here with a new review about a product that I have been using for some time and I wanted show you because I have several things to say respect to this product. Like I had some timwe using BB Creams and Cc Creams I decided go back to the foundations trying this foundation by the Korean brand Missha that is the MISSHA Radiance Velvet Foundation SPF30 PA++ and I picked the more neutral shade that I dound for my skin tone Vanilla #21 that was just in the middle.

Like I mentioned before I wanted to try a foundation because I has been very stick to my BB Creams. I don´t know what I decide go to back to the foundation because rarely I found one that I really like. This BB Cream has some strong points a ohter that are really weak. So move on with this review.

Back Side Box

Ingredients ✨

MISSHA Radiance Velvet Foundation SPF30 PA++ Vanila #21

MISSHA Radiance Velvet Foundation

Under this sticker says that the expiration is after 12 months of opened

✲゚ Packaging: The product the bottle is made of glass and I found that is not so friendly for carry on my makeup bag but the bottle even when is simple has this luxury finish that looks very nice. Simple but chic for me is the way for describe this packaging that makes the product look like a high brand.

The texture is 100% liquid

After spread the drop

Before and After

PROs & CONs

✲゚PROs 
- Nice packaging
- Liquid texture easy to blend
- Matte effect
- Medium coverage
- Long lasting effect
- Good price

✲゚CONs
- Powdery finish
- Dries the skin
- In many countries you only can buy this product online
-The application is not easy

Conclusions

Sincerely I am happy to write this review I had my doubts about to record or not a video but I decided that better is not to publish a video review about this product because for the end is not going to be a positive one. I had good expectations about this foundation I need to start saying the texture is a liquid one so I thought I should apply this product with brush but applying this with brush I noticed that the finish was so messy and you need to apply so quickly and the most important fact you need a very moisturizing primer or base If you want to apply this foundation. Why? The reason for a super moisturizing primer is because this formula dries the skin. This dries so quick that when you try to apply in another section of your face looks messy and dry.

Now my skin is sensitive combination so in some part of my face the skin is dry especially on my cheekbones and my chin is dry and even when I use a moisturizing toner and cream this is frequent so this foundation with the powdery finish only makes my skin looks more dry and unhealthy. And dry patches appear after a few hours and how lately I had a bad breakout due to sensitive and bad alimentation (another thing for another post) It has been so difficult to use this foundation. 

The positive about this product is the good coverage this offers medium coverage with s long-lasting effect which is good. The only way that I can use this product is to mix this product to a radio of 2:1 with moisturizing cream. I don´t recommend this foundation If you don´t like (like me) the powdery effect. Sincerely for me, this was an annoying product, I was no expecting comment this but I picked the Vanilla shade #21 that It was a shade that was just in the middle of the range of colors but It was a mistake because too much lighter than my skin tone. I would like to be able to say that this foundation is very good and that I recommend it but it really isn't.

It's Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow


Hi Everyone!

Wow, It is already December, wow the last month of the year is already here. I can´t believe how this 2019 was so quick and in a few days, the year is gonna end. Well, I have several reviews before finish this year and I wanted to share this good product It's Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow It has been a while since I write about the Korean brand Its Skin. I bought this automatic pencil because I wanted to try something different from the usual MISSHA Smudge Proof Wood Brow which I repurchased several times due the good has been that product for me.

The expiration after opened the product

Shade #04 Gray Brown


Gray Brown Swatch 

This is looks like It's Skin Babyface Natural Eyebrow  Gray Brown

PROs and CONs

PROs
- Good pigmentation
- Hard Texture
- Long-lasting effect
- Waterproof
- Smudgeproof
- Easy application

CONs
- In many countries you only can buy this product online.

Conclusions

I bought this item thinking in a good product for everyday and that was exactly what I found. This gray brown is perfect for that people that has a dark shade of hair but doesn´t want a hard look on the eyebrows simple you want to look pretty but you don´t want hard eyebrows so this is definitely the eprfect product for you. The application is easy and is only time to find the right shape for you because the texture of this pencil is dry and hard but the thing is to put the enough pressure.

I love it the fact that this only cost me around $6 USD and in fact I bought two per one at eBay (of coursr a retailer seller) and this last around 7 months to me wich is great because the expiration is after 12 month of opened. This is an affordable product and for me definitely I am going to repurchase more eyebrows products from the brand It's Skin because the relation between price and quality is good. I love it the natural effect that offers this color and of course the long-lasting effect.

THE SAEM Eco Soul Contour Palette


Hi Everyone!

I am here with a new review aboput a product that I´ve using for a while now. Today is the turn for THE SAEM Eco Soul Contour Palette a palette designed for contour. Sincerely I bought this palette because I like the neutral colors for the eyes and the most of korean palettes doesn´t have neutral colors without any glitter or is not so frequently.So even when I use this palette ofr my face too I prefer using this palette for contouring my eyes.

The Saem has become one of my favorite brands witht he time and iIt was in the time were I bought this one. One the few that has a contouring palette with an affordable price too so I decided to buy this one, moving with this review. By the way while I am writing this post I have a cold and I am not feeling pretty well but I want to keep my blog updated.


How to Use

THE SAEM Eco Soul Contour Palette

The colors~


⋏ Packaging + Price: When I bought this palette the cost It was arounf $11 for me the price was really affordable. The packaging is simple like the most of products of The Saem but with a good finish and the plastic doesn´t look cheap which is good.

Using different shades~

THE SAEM Eco Soul Contour Palette Swatches

The color on my eyes~


PROs and CONs

PROs
Affordable price
Nice and simple packaging
Medium pigmentation
Soft Texture
Easy Application
Multiuse product

CONs
In many countries you only can buy this product online.

Conclusions

When I bought this product It was a more like specie of experiment because sincerely Iw as looking for neutral eyeshadows. Some websites says this product contains 1 highlighter and 3 brozers. For me the other threee colors that are matte are not necesarilly a bronzer are more like other skin colors shades which is great. Each color prvides a medium pigmentation but I love it that because the colors are pretty natural. For example on my brow bone I applied the highlighter color and the effect is so subtle and I like that because provides that makeup effect in which you are with makeup but look so natural that doesn´t look like you have makeup.

I like the quantity of the four shades and I like the fact that I can use too for contouring my face too. But My contouring is super simple I only contour my v-line and my cheek bones. Probably I am gonna share about that in another post because today I am not feeling enough good and like I said my contouring is the most simple and what I show you on my eyes is how I frequently I use this product. I highly recommed this product because is a good investment.
