This week in K-beauty Blog, new weekly schedule!

Hope you’re all good as this autumn is strolling by? I really look forward to Halloween with some lovely pumpkins and candles!

Thank each and every one of you who joined this weekend’s GIVEAWAY in collaboration with Tokkitokki. I will of course continue to test & review all the products from last week’s haul. For example the PureHeal’s Propolis 90 Ampoule serum which I know several of you are very curious about. Don’t forgett about the tokkitokki.se 15% discount code “kbeautyeurope” which is still valid until nov 7th 2017.

I know that many of you are celebrating Halloween this weekend, and I wanted to do a little something for you guys.. But I’ve been trying to get hold of the Too Cool For School Pumpkin sheet mask all over town for the last 3 weeks now, and it’s unfortunately sold out everywhere (even online). Halloween is actually next week on October 31st. So I’ll see if I can manage to put something together for you guys then instead …

This week in the K-beauty blog, I’ll update the blog schedule a bit. I feel I can’t keep up blogging every day between my job, Instagram and Youtube videos. I want to share good quality content in this blog, and I hope I can continue to do so. Therefore, I’ll post Saturday’s review on Fridays from now on to shorten my week by one day. I’m thinking maybe 4 posts a week, plus a lot of fun on Instagram as usual!

This week in the K-beauty Blog, we’ll talk about primers! I have some great tips on some of Korea’s best and most affordable primers for every skin type. This Friday I’ll also share my review on one of the very best primers which I absolutely love. Don’t miss that. There will also be a review on PureHeal’s Propolis 90 Ampoule serum which is packed with 90% propolis. Hope you want to hang out with me!

Have a great week everyone!

FIRST IMPRESSION: A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask

Let’s review the A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask! A Korean strawberry sheet mask made out of beautiful soft quality!

A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask contains, among other things, strawberries, milk extracts and pearl extracts. This Korean sheet mask promises new radiance for tired dull skin. A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask is deeply hydrating and making the skin soft, smooth and fresh looking.

I just love the packaging and the sweet scent of strawberry milkshake! Those are my first thoughts when opening the A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask sheet mask. It doesn’t smell very natural and fresh, but more sweet and artificial. Maybe not for everyone, but I just love it! It’s a cozy soft sheet mask, perhaps primarily targeted towards a younger audience I feel?

First impression review A'PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask sheet mask is a white, very soft cotton-like sheet mask. The sheet mask is completely soaked in lovely essence, almost dripping. A wonderful scent of strawberry milkshake. The essence is kinda translucent / whiteish which I love. In other words not a completely transparent essence.

A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask sheet mask feels hydrating, moisturizing and softening, just delicious! There’s something soft and pleasing over this sheet mask. The soft material, the milky essence and the sweet scent. A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask sheet mask doesn’t feel as cooling as many other sheet masks do. Imagine a more soft cream type feel. Good fit except for the nose part which was too short for my nose. You feel the mask starting to dry after about 20 minutes (I have dry skin). So you should probably stick to the instructions on the packaging 15-20 min. After application the skin feels really fresh, soft and cared for, but not at all oily or shiny. All the essence kinda disappeared into my skin. A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask will not make your skin “white” as this sheet mask is “whitening”. It’s more a matter of improved radiance.

First impression review A'PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

I think the A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask is suitable for most skin types except perhaps for the most oily skin. Considering the cheap price, this mask is only 1.50 euros / pc with free shipping from Korea, it’s definitely very cheap and affordable and absolutely worth buying. Perfect for tired, dull skin that needs some extra nourishment.

If you like strawberries, then don’t miss A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask sheet mask. I love it!

Plus for the wonderful pink packaging that realy makes you wanna use this sheet mask. I’m really excited to try the other kinds in the A’PIEU Milk One Pack Mask line. That, if something, is a good trait. Nice job A’pieau!

Product: A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask
Price: from 1.50 euros / pc
Formula: Contains strawberries, milk extract and pearl extract. A’PIEU Strawberry Milk One Pack Mask promises new radiance to tired dull skin.
Skin type: ALL. Dry, combination & tired dull skin.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle

Let’s test this sheet mask from a Korean brand which I personally never tried before. I’m talking about Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle.

Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle is a Korean sheet mask with anti-aging properties against wrinkles and lines. Restoring, healing, deeply hydrating and improving the skin’s vitality. Contains, among other things, healing snail secretion filtrate, adenosine and vitamin E. Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle is ecologically certified by USDA. This sheet mask contains 11 ecologically certified ingredients which together account for more than 95% of the content. The Belleza Castillo masks in this line are free from phenoxyethanol, silicone, triethanolamine, urea, sulfate, benzophenone, talc and mineral oil.

The packaging of Korean sheet mask Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle is too cute! I love it. The sheet mask itself looks like a little tiger with prints on it. Typically Korean to make skin care products fun!

First impression review Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Europe

My first reaction to the Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask is that the material feels kinda “stiff”. At least that side of the print. The sheet mask is made out of an eco-friendly material called tencel which consists of cellulose fibers derived from cultured Eucalyptus. The material feels almost like a fabric. The sheet mask feels a bit “rougher” on the print side so make sure to put the soft side against your skin (the unprinted side). It’s a good sheet mask, no doubt about that. It’s not that it’s any thicker than usual, just a tiny bit more “stiff” and “rough” feeling if I’m going to try to describe it. Very subtile though.

Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle is completely drenched in lovely translucent gel like essence. Feels great on the skin! You really have to unfold the sheet mask and press it gently against the skin to shape it around your face. But once I got the sheet mask on, it sat tight during the entire treatment period. Good fit, nothing strange there.

First impression review Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Europe

The essence of Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask feels kinda gel-like when I applied the product on my throat. This is a proper hydrating essence I feel. I just love the subtle fresh scent. SO nice! Incredibly refreshing sheet mask I have to say. Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle really feels like 100% pure moisture. Therefore, I think this sheet mask is suitable for most skin types.

With Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask on, you basically look like a tiger. The print is great fun, but I wish the print was a little bit more prominent. The price takes off the ratings a bit as this sheet mask costs 6-7 euros / pc which is slightly higher compared many other good quality sheet masks from Korea. And I’m not entirely 100% sold on the material itself. But this sheet mask really does the job and hydrates the skin deeply and thoroughly, and I just love the subtle scent! Big plus for the formula and that it’s eco friendly!

After using the Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask, my skin was completely and thoroughly hydrated in depth, feeling and looking all fresh and healthy. Somewhat sticky feel, nothing that bothered me however. Good job Belleza Castillo!

Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask is a fun cute sheet mask that is thoroughly hydrating the skin. Perfect for a K-beauty get-together with your friends.

Product: Belleza Castillo Edge Cutimal Mask Tiger Anti-wrinkle sheet mask
Price: 6 euros
Formula: Anti aging sheet mask against wrinkles and lines. Contains, among other things, healing snail secretion filtrate, adenosine and vitamin E. Deeply hydrating and improving the skin’s vitality.
Skin type: ALL but especially mature skin

FIRST IMPRESSION: Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner

Let’s put Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner to the test. A really affordable long-lasting eye liner from Korea.

Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner is a versatile, long-lasting and very creamy eyeliner that is easy to apply. Can be used as an eye shadow as well. Waterproof and smudge-free formula that holds in place all day long. This eye liner pen is retractable. Twist at the bottom of the pen to get more/less eyeliner. Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner also comes with a handy built-in mini pencil sharpener on one side for sharpening the very tip of the pen.

I did some resaerch online before I decided to buy Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner. These eye pencils are very popular and loved in Korea. I bought 3 different shades #3 Gold Kakhi, #8 Chick Navy and #15 Bloody Devil. They all have a glittery metallic finish them, very pretty!

Review Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner eye liner from Korea Korean makeup K-beauty Blog Europe

Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner is an easy-to-use eye liner pen. There is also a mini sharpener in one end to sharpen the tip. However, the pencil sharpener is so very small and only sharpens the very tip of the pen. I think it’s difficult to sharpen this pen because of the pigment being so soft & creamy. That’s a minus. Perhaps putting the pen in the fridge to harden before sharpening would help. As you twist up Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner by hand, you don’t really need to sharpen it much any way (if you don’t want a super pointy tip that is).

Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner comes in a variety of colors and shades. Some are glittery / metallic others are not. The formula is very soft and creamy and it’s really easy to apply this product. The color is intense and highly pigmented and works great for smudging. Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner sits in place all day and is also water resistant.

Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner has a long-lasting formula and stays in place all day until you wash your face. When I cleans my face, I do a so-called Korean double cleansing. First I use an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based foaming cleanser. This way you easily remove Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner without any problems at all.

Review Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner eye liner from Korea Korean makeup K-beauty Blog Europe

I think Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner is awesome for the cheap price of 5-7 euros / pc with free shipping from Korea. I use these eye pencils inside the water line and to frame my eyelashes. And they are also good for smudging and using as an eye shadow as well. I have previously tried the Mac eye liners that cost 20 euros / pc. I feel Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner is just as good, just creamier in texture though! Thumbs up from me and I’m guaranteed to some buy more of these lovely eye liners from Clio!

Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner is great! Highly pigmented, creamy formula, long-lasting and very cheap! A really good & affordable Korean eye liner pen in my opinion!

Product: Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner
Price: 5.50 euros / pcs
Formula: Eye liner with a waterproof long-lasting formula that stays in place all day. Creamy, soft and highly pigmented eye liners that are easy to apply. Comes with a mini sharpener in one end.
Skin type: ALL
