Giveaway Stays Here
These are products I won from Picky’s Giveaways that open the new horizons of my skincare routine. They made the way to my stash that when I finished them, I surprisingly felt sad.
Aqua Hyaluronic Essence
I was lucky to won this twice, this is the only HA product that captured me since I’m not a big fan of HA.
I received this product for free from @go.picky @pickyrewards and @rovectin_global in exchange for my honest review. This is the new face of Rovectin Skin Essentials Activating Treatment Lotion with the same formula. This essence is probably the most favorite of all Rovectin’s products that I grew to love even though I’m not a big fan of HA. It gives me the moisture at the right amount, great lifting and plumping properties and very soothing when my skin was irritated. It absorbs beautifully into the skin and a great companion after my retinAl. A little goes a long way, you really don’t need that much, this bottle of 180ml/6.08oz is gonna last you a good long time.
The texture feels a lot like snail mucin, I went through this like a race car. It’s also great at repairing damaged skin barrier.
I was gifted this product from Picky and mixsoon for the exchange of my humble honest opinion. This will be my second time reviewing this essence by Mixsoon. For those with dehydrated skin, this is probably quickest fix to that in my experience. It gives the skin the right amount of glow that I liked. My skin loves this essence and they’ve been good friends since the very first time using it. TEXTURE is slimy snail mucin like, thick but easily spreadable on contact. I use this on damp skin, it’s the best way to use it in my opinion. I’m not very keen on its exfoliating properties as it requires too much of rubbing the skin and very minimal exfoliation for such amount of product dispensed for this purpose. The hydrating properties is way more superior than using this essence as an exfoliant, but some people may find otherwise. Key INGREDIENTS are all fermented products of soy bean, barley, Korean pear and pomegranate which are antioxidants and high in vitamin C and E. The ingredients list on its packaging is different from the one on Picky’s database that only listed 4 of its main fermented i ingredients while on the box list is: Aqua, Propanediol, Glycerin, Soybean ferment extract, Pomegranate fruit ferment extract, Barley ferment extract, Pear juice ferment extract. Claims and how I feel about it: - Hydrating 5/5 - Exfoliating 2.5/5 - Strengthen skin 4/5 - Moisturizing 4/5 - Revitalizes skin tone Unsure - Sebum control 4/5 Honorable mention: 💧Vegan 💧Cruelty free 💧Alcohol free 💧Fragrance free
Natural Vitamin 21.5% Enhancing Sheet Mask
I never knew a sheet mask can boost skin instantly. The brightening effect is visible, it’s perfect before going to a big occasion.
I received this mask as a gift from By Wishtrend on Picky’s giveaways. 🎈The packaging comes in solid red aluminum-like bag which I think is to protect the light sensitive serum in it. 🎈It has key ingredients of 10% vitamin C+ 11,5% vitamin E which are printed on the packaging in Korean (I had to search on internet for that lol) other than that it also contains Panthenol (vit B5), Sea Buckthorn water, green tea (antioxidant) and Sodium hyaluronate which are hydrating ingredients. 🎈The serum is thicker than other sheet masks I’ve ever used. The consistency is almost like my snail mucin serum. 🎈The mask fit pretty good on my face, once it touches my skin it feels cool till the next 20 min recomended use, I really enjoy it the whole time. It doesn’t go dry after that long and I still feel moist on my skin and very soothing. I didn’t expect much from the mask as sheet masks I used before didn’t wow me that much but boy I was wrong! ❤️After 20 min using this, peel it off my face, look in the mirror....I fall in love with my skin!! It looks brighter and plumped, I’m loving it as I’m writing this review. This is the first time ever I have such a beautiful experience with a sheet mask! It does all it claims: aintioxidation(from all the vitamins), skin tone, calming and moisturizing. I wil definitely purchase this in the future.
Jericho Rose Crème Nutrition
I didn’t give this 5🎖for a face cream, it clogged my pores due to coconut oil but this is a great hand cream, so good I actually squeeze the life of it to the last bit.
🌷Abib Jericho Rose Creme Nutrition Tube🌷 🌷Key Ingredients: True rose of Jericho extract, Mushroom extract, Coconut oil, Shea butter, Lactobacillus ferment, Tocopherol, Adenosine, Jojoba esters and Glycerin. 🌷PAO: 12M 🌷When I checked Picky’s (EWG) rating on this, it’s categorized risky for my skin type and I can see why. But I was giving it a chance to see if other ingredients that my skin loves would do sth good. I have combo oily skin, more on the oilier side. Oily T zone and less oily on the U zone. So..... it’s only been 6 days using this and unfortunately I had to stop. On the 4th day I started to see more comedones in my nose and butterfly area BUT not in my U zone and forehead. My U zone actually kinda love this cream. If it’s not because of the comedones this product gave me I would happily continue using it, cuz it locks moisture really good, it gives me supple soft skin in the morning. It has very thick texture, I can’t even say it’s creamy but once I rub it on my skin it kinda melt and easy to blend. This is an excellent occlusive though and fragrance free! Oily skinned folks might want to avoid this in summer, I would say it’s better choice for winter months. 🌷Recommended for: dry to very dry skin.
Green Tea Moisture Sunblock SPF 50+ PA++++
Oh how do I describe this one….you know the feeling when you have a wishful thinking that the product would magically refill itself? I had that with this suncream.
I received this product for free from Picky and ASIS-TOBE in exchange for my honest review. This sunscreen is one of a kind imo. Texture looks thick but once applied it feels like it melted into the skin, it almost feels like the melting feeling when you use a cleansing balm. It gives a dewy finish but not oily without white cast, the dewyness settles after couple hours and looks good on my oily skin in the summer. I can see this easily becomes favorite ss for all skin types. It doesn’t have fragrance but it smells like a mix of apple and pear kinda scent. I can’t say how it plays under makeup as I don’t wear makeup but judging from how much moisture it provides, it’s more likely to pair good under makeup.
ZOMBIE BEAUTY by SKIN1004 Zombie Pack
Saggy skin needs this, seriously.
I received this product for free from Picky and Skin1004 in exchange for my honest review. This product came in 8 separate powder packs along with its 8 packs of liquid activator AND a cute yet good quality mask brush. Mixing is easy, the amount I get is just enough for my face and neck. The fun starts immediately once I apply it. The texture is rather runny but not as thick. It gets dry pretty quickly and I can feel it gets REALLY THIGHT in that short amount of time. This reminds me of when my younger self playing with diy egg white mask, difference is I don’t slather salmonella on my face anymore, good lesson to learn 😂 Washing off is easy and my skin feels way softer afterwards, I can see the kick of glow after moisturizing and pores looks better too. This would be a quick skin boost if you have a special occasion to attend. As of any mask, the effect is only temporary.
Super Glutathione 100Tm Bright Ampoule
This product made me feel like a doctor with a syringe 💉 ready to inject the skin with antioxidants, moisture and brightening agents.
SUR.MEDIC Super Glutathione 100Tm Bright Ampoule I received this product for free from Picky and SUR.MEDIC in exchange for my honest review. This ampoule surprised me to the core. I have to admit the brightening effect is true to what it claims on the packaging. First time using it on my night routine I noticed brighter skin just couple minutes after application and this is the only new product I used at the time. I’ve always believe skincare takes time but this ampoule says otherwise. I even went ahead to their site and order the essence (145ml bottle)from the same line. Looking at the ingredient list, it is no surprise how this ampoule is an outstanding product for those who’re looking to get rid of dull skin. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and brightening agent. It also has vit C in its pure form (Ascorbic acid)+ niacinamide and almost all kind of extracts that made quite long list of ingredients. TEXTURE is serum like, absorbed almost immediately to the skin. Smells rather pleasant, I like it. I’ve already used this for about 8 days now, one syringe lasts me 2-3 uses depends on how my skin feels that day. Do not use this with your vit C, you’re gonna overwhelm your skin with too much vit C and it stings too! I pair this with my retinol and didn’t have any problem with it. My retinol is on lower %, if yours is higher and/or on tretinoin, I would say avoid it or use it on different regimen. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for mature skin, dull skin, all skin type except sensitive skin.
Brightening Coconut Gel Sheet Mask
These two from Mask Moments are the best fit masks from all giveaways so good that I kinda wish they do another giveaway lol, yeah it’s pricey.
⭐️ Mask Moments Brightening Coconut Gel Sheet Mask ⭐️ ⭐️ Pack of 22 ml/ 0.74 fl oz ⭐️ First stop, how this mask fits and hugs my skin is just beautiful, the picture tells it all. This mask claims to tighten pores and with coconut gel as the sheet is a brilliant idea. I first heard that the coconut gel is degradable, not with the plastic packaging though. The serum in it is a good amount, texture is runny with slight citrus scent. It’s tucked in between two cover sheets that you have to remove the first, apply then remove the second one. 20 mins after I can definitely see my face 100% brightened, a small area on my forehead where doesn’t get covered by the mask is actually appears darker compare to those covered by the mask, that’s how good it brightens skin!! ⭐️ Recommended for all skin type exclude sensitive skin. ⭐️ Hydrating : 3/5 Brightening: 6 out of 5 stars! ⭐️ Packed with: Fig extract, Pomegranate extract, Ginkgo Biloba, Beta glucan, Niacinamide.
Calming Coconut Gel Sheet Mask
☂️ Mask Moments Calming Coconut Gel Sheet Mask☂️ ☂️So...it’s weekend, mask moment for me and thank you to Mask Moments and Picky for trusting me to review this product. As the other mask I reviewed from the same brand, this mask is made of same ingredient for the sheet (I don’t want to call it fabric, cuz it’s not) which is coconut gel that fits my face in an extreme level, it actually hugs and sticks to my face real good except that it’s a lil challenging to take off the second netted protective sheet. I rub the two sheets on my neck, arms and legs before it goes to the trash can, nothing is wasted with me 😄 First pull it out, I can smell the herbal scent which is pleasant to me. I had exfoliating routine one day before using this mask, so I got a slight redness in my cheeks, it’s not there 20 mins after using the mask which proves its claim to soothes and relieves redness. I didn’t have any breakout while using this so I can’t confirm the calming inflammation and healing claim. I am liking this mask for its incredible fit. ☂️ My favorite ingredients: Glycerin, Beta glucan, Ceramide, Licorice root extract. ☂️ Also has: silicones(dimethicones), Lavender oil, Bergamot oil and Mint. ☂️Pack of 22ml/ 0.74 fl oz of clear runny serum.
