Oily/Sensitive

I recently bought Cosrx'sย Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essenceย & Advanced Snail 92 All in One Creamย and I am loving them so far. They are lightweight and leave my face soft along with a glowyย complexion. Unlike face oils, they provide a glow without the wet greasy look. The essence is serum-like and slightly slimy (but not really...it's hard to describe).ย  ๐ŸŒ The essence contains 96.3% secretion filtrate + hydrating sodium hyaluronate and vitamin B5. The cream contains similar ingredients with 92% snail mucin.ย  ๐ŸŒ Snail mucin is excretion from a snail and naturally containsย substances such as hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid,ย copper peptides, antimicrobial peptides, iron and zinc. ๐ŸŒ Claims:ย Nourishes & plumpsย โ€ขย Anti-aging, Repairs damaged skinย โ€ขย Long lasting hydration. Targets red, irritated skin โ€ข Dull & rough skin โ€ข Dark spots & scars โ€ข Dehydrated skin.

๐ŸŒผ๐’ฆโ„ฏ๐“Ž ๐’พ๐“ƒโ„Š๐“‡โ„ฏ๐’น๐’พโ„ฏ๐“ƒ๐“‰๐“ˆ: This got a whopping 77.78% Gaomi (rice) extract. It also has niacinamide and rice bran extract. Rice extract is known for its rich antioxidant compounds, including Vit E, ferulic acid and oryzanol. The bran on the other hand contains moisturizing polysaccharides, omega fatty acids, and a lot of nutrients. All of these work synergistically to brighten your complexion, make it look more radiant, supple and younger looking. ๐ŸŒผโ„ฑโ„ด๐“‡๐“‚๐“Š๐“๐’ถ๐“‰๐’พโ„ด๐“ƒ: What caught my attention was its 2 distinct product densities. The first layer is watery, the other layer is more of like an emulsion. So you need to shake it first before using. ๐ŸŒผ๐’œ๐“…๐“…๐“๐’พ๐’ธ๐’ถ๐“‰๐’พโ„ด๐“ƒ: After cleansing, I take a few drops at the palm of my hand and massage them well across my face. This has a very watery milk consistency. Very lightweight and easily absorbed by my skin. ๐ŸŒผ๐’žโ„ด๐’พ๐“ƒ: Php1200 for 150ml, which is perhaps a little pricey compared to other k-beauty toners. But if you have a room in your budget, I would say it's a worthwhile product. ๐ŸŒผ๐’ฑโ„ฏ๐“‡๐’น๐’พ๐’ธ๐“‰: I think I've found the one. This is so perfect for my oily-combo skin! I have been using this consistently for ~3weeks, day & night. What I love about this is I can layer it bec it's very lightweight and fast absorbing (I love layering my toners & essences) it didn't make my skin feel greasy at all. And you can already see the instant glow right after application! I haven't seen any significant improvement on my pimple marks though (need to use it more to see), but the overall complexion of your skin will really improve. So if you're after the instant brightening effect and you have the budget, go for it!

Oily/Sensitive

[Review of SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule by Destina Wahyuni] Honestly, I already have this Ampoule with the largest size, but it still contains half left because I use it every day. Luckily I got another one from Picky with this 55ml content. Thank you so much Picky, you understand me so much๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘€First impressions: This ampoule is packaged in a clear colored glass bottle and the applicator is very sturdy and long. I could say, it pulls out the ampoule very well. On the inside of the bottle there is a picture of the island of Madagascar which is really nice to look at according to the brand concept that Centella is the main ingredient taken from Madagascar. ๐ŸƒTexture and ingredients: The texture is very watery, mild and easy to absorb quickly into the layers of the skin. Even though it is easily absorbed, the ampoule really moisturizes the entire face and itโ€™s gentle on the skin and itโ€™s good for sensitive skin. The hero ingredient contained is ๐ŸŒฟCentella Asiatica extract which is the main ingredient of this Ampoule. โœจSkin results: Because Centella Asiatica is believed to be able to soothe and moisturize sensitive skin. I said yes for this Ampoule. Because I have Redness, PIE, PIH, Hyperpigmentation, my skin problems are solved thanks to this Ampoule. Redness and PIE are reduced. In addition, the Ampoule is able to strengthen the skin barrier! I really noticed that my previous skin barrier wasn't as good as it is now, so it's getting better and made my skincare routine work really well on my skin. I highly recommend this Ampoule to anyone with sensitive and acne-prone skin, it will suit your skin. Because this ampoule can also be a savior when my skin is inflamed due to acne or stubborn acne, just drop this for a few days, the progress will be seen quickly, the pimple becomes flat and doesn't leave a mark. I really like this, it's even my HOLY GRAIL which I must have this year. Good job SKIN1004!!!โค๏ธ *Disclaimer: results may vary according to your skin type, because I have sensitive skin which tends to be acne prone. Rate: 5 of 5 scaleโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ Price: $19.98/55ml ๐Ÿ“Œ@go.picky @pickyrewardsย @skin1004official #pickyreviewย #gopickyย #SKIN1004picky

Meet MISSHA Cicadin Rescue Water Sunscreen Stick SPF50+ PA++++. This sun stick contains 38% centella asiatica (cica) which is soothing and has been used for centuries in traditional Asian medicine. It is referred to as an "herbal cure-all" and is used in popular Western skincare brands as well. I love that this is the first ingredient listed ๐Ÿ’› There were a lot of K-Beauty options for sun sticks but I chose this one because of it's ingredients plus I wanted a dewy finish and I also wanted to try a MISSHA product since they have been around for over 20 years and are a popular skincare brand in Korea. Highlights: โ˜€๏ธSPF50+ PA++++ โ˜€๏ธInfused with 6 kinds of centella asiatica extract โ˜€๏ธEasily glides on skin โ˜€๏ธLeaves a dewy glowy finish โ˜€๏ธZero stickiness โ˜€๏ธMoisturizing โ˜€๏ธCompact and easily fits into my purse I would definitely repurchase this sun stick. It's a keeper! ๐Ÿ“ท: At the Toronto Blue Jays baseball game yesterday. I brought the sun stick but the roof was closed so it wasn't necessary. I used it anyway for dewy glowy skin! #MISSHA #MISSHAkbeauty

SCMemoir


Oily/Sensitive

Iโ€™m a big fan of cosrx products, not gonna lie. ______ Iโ€™ve been using the COSRX PROPOLIS SYNERGY TONER๐Ÿ since roughly September 2020, so for a while now, though not consistently every day (so many toners to try out!). ______ What initially surprised me about this toner is its consistency. It is far less viscous than expected, given that propolis-containing products tend to be on the richer and thicker side. It feels a bit sticky when you run it through your fingers though, so it isnโ€™t quite as water-like as a first treatment essence. ______ The Propolis Synergy Toner๐ŸŒป is alcohol-, essential oil- and fragrance-free, which will make many of you very happy to hear. ______ I tend to use this toner in the mornings due to its light feel on the skin and the fact that it so smoothly glides onto the skin, playing well with any skincare or makeup products that follow in the routine. ______ ๐Ÿ”†To sum up This is a great, gentle toner for a variety of skin types, from dehydrated to acne-prone and oily, since it delivers hydration without overpowering the skin. . The propolis and honey๐Ÿ extract can support a damaged skin barrier, plus help with redness and potentially even scarring from healed breakouts.
