Gentle Black Fresh Cleansing Oil

Keep it gentle and simple with that first cleanse

Gentle Black Fresh Cleansing Oil product review

GlowingforJesus


Dry/Sensitive

Unlike its predecessor (the Klairs Black Deep Cleansing Oil), this one is fragrance-free and lighter in consistency. But unlike my other oil cleansers which have clear textures, this look like pale yellow cooking oil in my opinion, and the viscousity is quite thicker, almost like honey, but when applied on the skin, it feels comfy and light and emulsifies very well. I guess it's just me, but it smells slightly like honey, too. It doesn't sting my eyes even when I massage it over my eyelids. It does a great job in cleansing away all the nasties from the day, and it doesn't leave an oily film or dryness to my skin after washing it off with water.

Oily/Sensitive

Personal Experience Review: PR package from @yesstyle & @isntree It's a good product that might be helpful to those who have dry skin because of it's moisturising ingredients. It appears to be a white creamy liquid type of a cleanser but then it became almost watery once applied on face. This cleanser can not remove heavy makeup or waterproof makeup, might as well start with a cleansing balm or oil then use it after. If you do simple and light makeup this will definitely do it's job.

Beta Glucan 100% Power Moisture Serum

If hyaluronic acid is drying in your damaged, dehydrated skin, go for an alternative

Beta Glucan 100% Power Moisture Serum product review
profile

therealchelsea


Oily/Resilient

Reading the ingredients, all I can say is WOW! This moisturizing serumโ€™s formula is both potent and simple. Out of six ingredients, three are highly beneficial to the skin. The other three ingredients are necessary for the serum formula. Two ingredients have slight active capacities and the third is water. Suffice it to say Iโ€™m impressed! Active ingredients: Butylene Glycol - a humectant, slipping agent, and penetration enhancer. This is a multipurpose solvent that Iโ€™m always happy to see in my skincare products. Not only does that slippage feel fantastic, the water attracting properties help to keep skin soft and supple. Beta-Glucan - an intensive skin repairing active that heals wounds, soothes skin, moisturizes, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles in concentrations as low as 0.1%! Interestingly, as a food, it also has benefits: it works to assist diabetes, lowers cholesterol levels, and even helps to fight cancer. I donโ€™t know if I want a plate to eat or a bowl to immerse my face! Sodium PCA (Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid) is a skin-identical ingredient found naturally in the skin. Itโ€™s an amino acid (proline) that comprises up to 12% of the skinโ€™s natural moisturizing factors. When used in concentrations of 2% or more in skincare, itโ€™s a great moisturizer that helps the skin to hold onto water and stay nicely hydrated, with both immediate and therapeutic benefits. What I love about this serum is its simplicity. It can be used/layered with virtually any other skincare products, and its benefits sun still be realized.

I'm obsessed with this. I got the delux mini size to try it, as I had heard mixed reviews, ands it's pretty expensive. And let me tell you, I'm so glad I got it. I've already ordered a full size. This watery/milky toner is literally a 1 step skincare routine for oily skin people. In the morning, I just rinse my face with water, glide over this silky Moisturizing toner and top off with sunscreen before I go out. I don't need another moisturizer. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, moisturizer and soft. It's really worth the price tag, considering it does the job of a toner, serum and moisturizer in one.

This brand was my first K-beauty purchase as I fell in love with the aesthetic packaging but, overtime, I realized it wasnโ€™t just a pretty product. This moisturizer is perfect for combination, oily and sensitive skin that is not too dry. It will provide plenty of hydration without the weight, plus it will also tone down any redness or irritation due to its soothing composition.

Lovely rich ceramide cream. This is a dream when I've damaged my skin barrier and during the cold months. Helped with flaking skin. Thicker creamier texture than the CosRX balancium (which was my HG) and less oily than the Dr Jart Ceramidin balm. Haven't tried under makeup but sits well under my sunscreen.

**I received this product for free from Picky and Purito in exchange for my honest review.** The dermide balancing barrier balm feels luxurious on my face, my skin can't get enough of it! It's of a thick, luxurious texture and no scent. For me, as I have dry skin, this is perfect for both AM and PM; however, that being said I can tell it will be too heavy for the AM routine for some skin types. Despite it being of a thicker consistency, the balm melts into my skin beautifully and doesnโ€™t feel sticky or unpleasant. It doesn't feel greasy, in fact I can't even tell it's on my face. It certainly doesn't feel heavy! It has no scent as the product is fragrance free, which is a bonus for people with easily irritated skin. This would be an excellent winter cream when my skin is usually at its driest! I love using this on a night and it completes my routine very well! UPDATE: After using this for a few weeks, I have already noticed a visible reduction in redness in my cheeks. I have roseaca in both cheeks so it's an absolute delight to see my redness go down!

I love how the mask fit nicely on my face shape. Even the nose area was perfectly cut. The thin and flexible feature of the sheet mask allows it to comfortably adhere onto curvatures of the face which allows the essence to absorb better. I'm obsessed with this mask. I would highly recommend this

vinci


Oily/Resilient

๐ŸŒพ A creamy organic sunscreen containing 30% rice extract and grain fermented extracts that provide moisture and nourishment to the skin as the brand claims. SPF- and PA-tested. ๐Ÿ“ฆ Packaging. In a screw cap tube similar to most toothpaste packaging. Easily dispensed. Note: Packaging could get smeary with residue of the product in hands as you replace the cap. ๐Ÿงด Key Ingredients & Benefits. Rice & grain fermented extracts that are rich in vitamins B, C, E, amino acids, and minerals to help moisturize dry skin. ๐Ÿ’งForm & Fragrance. White cream with moderate consistency, without fragrance but with a mild scent. (Tested in a tropical, hot, humid region) ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝ Experience. Many have this as their HG. First tried this when I asked for some from my sibling who truly likes and repurchases this product. My initial impression was that since it has rice ingredient in it, it would feel or leave a powdery effect because thatโ€™s how rice grains are to touch. With actual use, this is rather the opposite, itโ€™s moist. Does not leave white cast, does not clump, does not sting the eyes, isnโ€™t sweatproof or waterproof, a moisturizing sunscreen. ๐Ÿ’ฒ Price. โ‚ฑ598 ($10.80~) per 50mL tube in Lazada PH. Buy during double day or pay day sales for discounted price or rebates. (Not a sponsored post. Bought it from my personal pocket.)

Klairs Fresh Cleansing oil is my holy grail for a gentle cleanse that doesn't clog my pores. Beauty of Joseon cleansing balm is what I use for a deep clean. Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser is an excellent option for gentle cleansing that is well suited for sensitive skin. I haven't tried it yet because I'm waiting for my delivery, but I have high hopes for Some By MI Beta Panthenol Repair Gel Cleanser. I'm very acne prone so I was quite unsure about trying the Isntree Yam Root cleanser due to the Ethylhexyl Palmate, but somehow it worked quite well for me, I use it on damp skin as my second cleanser - I find it works a lot better this way. It's usually an ingredient I avoid so just be mindful that the Isntree one does contain that
