Vita B5 Toner

I like to layer this if I have the time

Dry/Sensitive

Let's review the Tia'm Vita B5 Toner 💧 I had purchased this some time ago and have finally started using it a few weeks ago and it has become a stable in my routines. It comes in a generous 180ml bottle, the old & new design only differentiate in the packaging and the ingredient list hasn't changed. The toner has no scent to it and has a watery, slightly viscous texture, so it's not as runny as others and doesn't spill everywhere while getting the product out of the bottle.💙 I love the ingredient list and that this toner hydrates my skin without any stickiness or irritations. If I use an essence in a routine, one layer works very well with my products. 💧Sometimes I like to apply two or more for extra hydration, with it being fall and winter approaching, I can imagine layering could really help my skin getting through the colder temperatures here in Germany. Update: I am on my second bottle and have noticed that it only works for me by layering several times. Otherwise it just feels like fancy water if applied less than 4 times; I usually either pair it with another toner and layer both a few times or use 5+ layers of the B5 Toner

C-Niacin Toning Ampoule

ISNTREE C-Niacin Toning Ampoule A nourishing ampoule containing Hippophae Rhamnoides fruit extract helps to improve skin tone and give a vital look to the skin. Contains 2% of niacinamide for brightening. Alcohol, Fragrance, Essential oil free ✔️ Rate: 5/5 Price: Php840 for 50ml Texture: Liquid syrupy texture My experience: I would always use a vitamin c serum every morning for my face but I was in the process of transitioning my products to be alcohol free, fragrance free and essential oil free so I was looking for a gentle vitamin c alternative, and I discovered this product so I gave it a try. It does its job well. It has lots of antioxidants that goes well with any sunscreen. The only downside was that it was too gentle and not as potent as pure vitamin c but it does brighten my dull skin tone. Recommend for: All skin types especially for those who have sensitive skin Will I repurchase? Definitely!

Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

Dry/Sensitive

Rich in moisture, nutrients and vitamins, snail secretion filtrate is said to be a great moisturizer and help repair damaged skin, improve skin texture and reduce hyperpigmentation and fine lines. I have purchased it twice in the full-size and have received a small 30ml travel size from a Yesstyle giveaway. The texture is viscous and I like that it isn't too slippery. Just the right amount before feeling weird. It's not tacky after application and gives a glowy complexion immediately after. Makes me want to try the Cosrx Snail Cream too. It sinks in very well and faster than the Bean Essence I had tried from Mixsoon which took a longer amount of time. The essence has no scent to it which I'm glad about! It hydrates my dry skin, although I feel like it might benefit combination, oily and less-dry skin types a little better. Made free of harmful chemicals such as parabens, ethanol, synthetic fragrances, synthetic surfactants and artificial colorants. Pairs well with other products

Ceramide Deep Moisture Creme

Seals in the moisture!

Dry/Sensitive

I purchased this as an alternative to the Cerave Moisturizing Cream and because of its size. The tub contains 400ml of cream to hold for quite some time. The product is scentless and doesn't contain any fragrances. Contains 10% of plant glycerin, squalane and ceramides. It is made for both face and body which I liked about the Cerave one too. Compared to that one the Mixa cream has a slightly more lightweight texture and is not as thick. It has a creamy rich texture and you don't need a lot to cover the face and neck. I like to apply two layers of cream in my PM routine and now in fall and upcoming winter, I know this wouldn't work otherwise. It has a thicker texture than some other moisturizers I've tried so far but still works well to layer. I like using it on my body too and it sinks in fast! The ingredients are simple and the list is not very long which I also love!

UV Super Moisture Gel SPF50+ PA++++

Dry/Sensitive

I had been on the lookout for a sunscreen that's bigger than the usual 50ml and on my search I found this 110g one for a great price! If I remember correctly it was 9€ when I purchased it. This was my first Japanese sunscreen to try and I'm not disappointed. It has a watery lightweight texture that rubs in easily. Despite its white color it blends in immediately without leaving a whitecast. Reapplication is also no problem. There is a distinct alcohol scent to it but I've also had worse experiences with one or two other spfs It leaves a natural finish, leaning on matte which makes me think that it would suit oily and combo skin types well too. The clips are immediately after application so there's a slight dewy look still but that dries down to more matte on my face. It's also not the most hydrating/thick spf which makes it suitable for hot summer days The bottle is very practical despite its size and I can see myself repurchasing. My sister has also tried it and ordered herself 3 bottles
