Oily/Resilient

Ok so I'm about to share not only a review but kind of a hack, because I've found that this toner not only works a treat when being used on the face, but also, and even better, when used in the body. More specifically it's a great solution for bacne! Those pesky blackheads and pimples that plague the back of us oily skinned divas don't stand a chance against this. The hack is to put it on a spray bottle, or you can just add a spray cap on the original bottle if you have one that fits. Then after shower, or before bed, spray it on your back and let it dry for a couple minutes before putting clothes on. I normally do that at night because that's when I like to shower, whenever I feel my back is in need of it. If you want to do it on your morning routine, just be sure to cover it with SPF because AHA sensitizes the skin to UV rays. And this solution has plenty of it, with 7% Glycolic Acid. I've found that if I use it everyday on my face it can be a bit drying, soap few times a week is ideal. But on my back I can use it daily during summer and it really helps keep my pores under control on the scorching Australian heat. And it's a steal for the price. The brand claims that "Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This 7% toning solution offers mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. The formula is further supported with inclusion of ginseng root and aloe vera for both visible radiance and skin soothing benefits." Which I found to be pretty much true! Highly recommend.

I received this product for free from Picky and Numbuzin in exchange for my honest review. I have combination skin and the serum is super great for helping lighten my red spots. Full disclosure I did see it contained shea butter so if you have oily skin you might want to patch test it. For my combination leaning dry skin it did such a fabulous job. I always need vitamin C to help me out in evening skin tone. Absorbs quickly and leaves no residue behind. Nice soak in. Overall a great vitamin C. #pickyreview #gopicky #numbuzinpicky

Fragrance: Has a strong smell which is really bothering for me since i have a sensitive skin. Thoughts/Experiences: A good product for whitening the skin. However when i used it on my body, it dried my skin badly, to the point that my skin peels. During that time I also want to remove my hyperpigmentation so i decided to use another kojie san soap on my face. After 2 days of using it, i noticed that some close comedones/milia started to form under my eyes. I just shrug it and continued using the product for almost a week, but it only got worse. Now im struggling to remove the milia under my eyes because of this product. Not recommended for people with sensitive skin. Would not repurchase.

One more niacinamide product to try from a bunch out there. ๐Ÿงด ๐Š๐ž๐ฒ ๐ˆ๐ง๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐๐ข๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ฌ. 60% propolis extract (which, interestingly, is an ingredient collected by bees from tree buds to seal and varnish honeycomb) to address visibly large pores and inflamed skin; 2% niacinamide to keep the skin moist and to help control sebum secretion; and I did not expect it also has is 0.5% BHA, a very mild exfoliant to help clean pores. โ–ซ๏ธ๐…๐จ๐ซ๐ฆ & ๐…๐ซ๐š๐ ๐ซ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž. Out of the bottle from the dropper the consistency is pretty thick it bubbles up as you dispense it. No detectable scent which is one less risk of irritating the skin. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝ ๐„๐ฑ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐ข๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž. Got hold of this first Beauty of Joseon product I tried out of heeding attractive user reviews. I wanted to address skin dullness. Applying it leaves the skin moist to slightly sticky as it dries up. In the duration of my usage, it did not irritate me. ๐Ÿ’ฒ ๐๐ซ๐ข๐œ๐ž. I time my skincare purchases during sale events so I was able to get this Korean product for โ‚ฑ425 = $8 on Shopee, originally $17.
