FIRST IMPRESSION: Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink

Let’s test a crazy popular Korean BB cream of good quality. This is Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink. Here’s my review.

Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions is a Korean BB cream and the perfect mix between skin care and makeup. Contains Damask Rose Flower Water and Acerola Extract. This BB cream comes in several different shades like “Pink”, “Orange”, “Purple”, “Green” and “Gold”. All of them however, are quite light. Pink is the brightest shade I’m testing today. This BB cream is brightening, smoothes out the skin, protecting the skin, moisturizes and conceals an uneven skin tone. Anti-aging against wrinkles and lines. Protects against UV light with SPF 30 PA ++. Sebum control. The formula balances water and oil in the skin and dries to a soft, powdery smooth finish that looks fresh throughout the day. Apply after your skin care and finish with a setting powder.

Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink packaging looks absolutely amazing. This Korean BB cream comes in a hot pink bottle with gold details. (The different shades have different colored bottles, see img below). Handy pump at the top of the bottle. The packaging feels luxurious and looks very pretty on the bathroom shelf. This is the first product I’m testing from Korean brand Skin79. I had no expectations of this product.

Review Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink BB cream from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe Korean makeup

Oops, I applied way too much product was my first reaction when I tested the Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink for the very first time. You only need a small amount of BB cream to cover the entire face, a little goes a long way. One single pump or less is enough I feel. Creamy and soft yet very concentrated thick texture. Almost a “wax” type feeling. Light skin care type scent.

Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions is a very popular top seller and I’ve seen this BB cream sold out in several webshops from time to time. Although the product is thick and concentrated in texture, the feeling on the skin is still light and not at all heavy. Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions provide a good amount of coverage depending on how much BB cream you use. I would definitely say at least medium coverage. Gives a warm very nice tone to the skin. Pretty matte finish but still not flat and “dead”, but more of a natural and very nice looking finish actually. After a while, the skin has a natural glow, and it looks like skin just SO much better. I’m pleasantly surprised.

Seriously, if Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions suits your skin type, then this will be the best BB cream you ever tried!

Review Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink BB cream from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe Korean makeup

It’s possible to use quite a good amount of product without the finish looking all heavy and smeared. Somewhat buildable and really good coverage for being a BB cream I feel. The product could easily have been a foundation in my opinion. The finish looks really nice I have to say. It looks natural and at the same time you get a good amount of coverage. Super great!

Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink looks like skin, but SO much better. Really good quality, natural smooth and even finish!

I would primarily recommend Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions for normal skin without any major skin concerns. Could also work for combination skin, mature skin, tired dull skin and possibly, somewhat dry skin types. And perfect for those who want a BB cream with good coverage. If you have an oilier skin type then you definitely need to use setting powder. My sister with young combination acne prone skin became quite shiny after a few hours. And the finish didn’t hold for long in her T-zone. Looked great on her skin right after application though.

Works well both for day and night makeup I feel. Also suitable for mature skin, as it doesn’t emphasize wrinkles or lines too much. But use a small amount of product on mature skin, as always. This BB cream provides nice fresh even smooth skin, that doesn’t look or feel like it’s smeared with heavy makeup. Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions is a high quality BB cream in my opinion. Below used on bare skin, and I didn’t even need to use concealer.

Review Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink BB cream from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe Korean makeup

However, Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions is not suitable for neither oily skin nor very dry skin. Oily skin becomes shiny during the day and the BB cream doesn’t hold at all. Dryness and dry flaky areas will be emphasized unfortunately. This BB cream also have a small tendency to gather up into large pores, but not too much of a problem anyway. Use a primer. Other than that, this is a top quality BB cream in my opinion. I have dry mature skin and this BB cream lookes really nice and even on my skin. I don’t have any dry flaky areas though.

Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink holds nicely for about 4-6 hours without using a primer. After a full 8h day, the BB cream has started to fade around my nose area, but most of the product still remains and everything looks okay! Use a primer, setting powder and setting spray to hold the finish for longer. Minus for the poor range of bright shades only, and that it kinda clings into pores and dry areas, otherwise top-notch! I have found a new favorite. This is an awesome good quality BB cream I feel. For just 12 euros with free shipping from Korea, it’s a steal you guys. High ratings from me, I’m in love with this one!

Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink provides good coverage, but at the same time a natural finish that doesn’t look too heavy. Awesome!

Product: Skin79 BB Super + Beblesh Balm Triple Functions Pink
Price: 40gr / 12 euros
Formula: Contains Damask Rose Flower Water and Acerola Extract. A perfect blend between skin care and makeup. Brightening, smooths out the skin, protects the skin, moisturizes and conceals uneven skin. Anti-aging against wrinkles and lines. Protects against UV light SPF 30 PA ++. Sebum control. Balances water and oils in the skin.
Skin type: Normal skin without any major skin concerns. Maybe also for combination skin, mature skin and dull skin that needs new life and radiance.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone

Let’s test Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone from Korea. A deeply hydrating sheet mask packed with marine collagen. Here’s my review!

Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone is a Korean sheet mask packed with marine extract from the Jeju Islands. This sheet mask is all about intense hydration. “Abalone” meaning mineral complex, amino acids, proteins and fatty acids. Along with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides and marine collagen, this sheet mask is strengthening, stimulating collagen production, helps skin elasticity, treating wrinkles and lines. For an overall improved appearance and healthy looking skin. The sheet mask itself is made out of 100% bamboo fiber and is soft and gentle without irritating the skin. This sheet mask contains an entire 25gr essence.

This is the very first product I try from Korean brand Blithe. I had no expectations what so ever but to try this sheet mask with an open mind. The packaging is kinda special, looks almost like a small poster or a book. Exciting!

First Impression Review Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

As soon as I opened the packaging of Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone, I felt the incredibly refreshing scent. I was immediately excited to apply this sheet mask to my face. A kind of marine scent with a hint of purifying citrus. Mild, fresh and “clean” scent, not too heavy just perfect. If you are sensitive to fragrances though, then maybe this sheet mask is not for you. The essence is very thin, translucent & wonderfully fresh.

Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone sheet mask was easy to unwrap and the mask was completely soaked in lovely fresh hydrating essence. Actually an entire 25gr of essence. This sheet mask doesn’t drip unbelievably enough, but it’s just a lot of essence going on. Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone has a good fit to the face with several small cuts around the edges. It’s easy to get the sheet mask to sit tight around the entire face. The mask is made out of 100% bamboo fiber and is soft and comfortable to wear.

First Impression Review Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

I just love Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone sheet mask! So incredibly refreshing and cooling feeling on the skin, really nice! Both the essence and the very scent feels very clean and fresh.

The application time for this sheet mask is 15-20 minutes, but I kept the sheet mask on my face for a little bit longer than that. When I removed the sheet mask, my skin was completely moist and fully and thoroughly hydrated from the inside out. So good you guys! I patted in the remaining essence which was absorbed in a few minutes. Not very sticky feeling at all, and the skin felt really cool and fresh. After 5-10 minutes when all the essence was completely absorbed, the face felt nourished, and almost an oily kind of feel, but in a good way. A great surprise and so nice. I feel that Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone really makes a difference in my skin which is absolutely great!

First Impression Review Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone is a very good quality Korean sheet mask. Great in every way, I’m completely 100% sold!

I would say that Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone is mainly suitable for dry skin types, combination skin and mature skin that needs nutrition, moisture and glow. Might be too much for oily skin types due to the somewhat “smeared” feeling afterwards. The sheet mask is also suitable for sensitive skin which is great. I think this sheet mask works best in the evening. You don’t really feel like putting on makeup after this lovely softening mask! You don’t even need face cream at all actually. The skin feels similar to after having a treatment at the SPA. Not for those who doesn’t like to feel a bit “smeared”. This mask lives up to its promises! Costs from about 4 euros / pc with free shipping from Korea, and often sold in pack of 8-10pcs. And it’s SO worth it you guys!

I have nothing to complain about actually. Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone is a really good and fresh Korean sheet mask that moisturises and hydrates the skin thoroughly and deeply without feeling greasy or sticky. Top ratings from me. I can’t see anyone who wouldn’t appreciate this Korean sheet mask. I love it and I’m 100% sold!

Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone sheet mask is an intensive treatment that moisturises and boosts the skin in every way. This is like luxury home SPA my friends.

Product: Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Abalone
Price: from 4 euros / pc
Formula: Ingredients like mineral complex, amino acids, protein, fatty acids, hyaluronic acid, peptides and marine collagen. Strengthening the skin, stimulates collagen production, improves skin elasticity, treating wrinkles and lines. Improve the skin’s surface and overall appearance.
AlSkin type: All but oily skin. Also for sensitive skin.

FIRST IMPRESSION: SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick

SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is an innovative water-based foaming cleansing product in stick format. Here is my review.

SU:M37 is a Korean high-end brand producing high quality skin care products. SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is an innovative water-based foaming cleanser in stick format. Much like a solid soap that you twist up by turning the bottom of the tube. Contains fermented rose petals that gently massages the skin without irritating or causing redness. SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick has a very gentle formula leaving the skin clean, soft and clear. Doesn’t dry out the skin and also suitalbe for sensitive skin.

My expectations on SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick were very high. This product is hyped in social media and everyone seems to love this cleansing stick. SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is supposedly handy when travelling etc. My first thoughts were, how do I use this product? Should I use my hands or apply directly on my face? How about makeup then? Will the stick become dirty? Should your skin be wet or dry  when applying? There are instructions on the packaging, pju! It sais to apply the product on damp skin directly to your face.

First impression review SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick water-based cleanser from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

The packaging feels luxurious and very nice with gold details. I’m using the SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick after my oil-based cleanser to remove most of my makeup. I don’t feel like messing around with the stick directly on my skin wearing 3 layers of foundation if you know what I mean. Then the stick would be dirty and unsanitary I feel. This leaves me with some questions about SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick. Is this stick only made for either 1. People who don’t use foundation? or 2. People who double cleans?

SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is an innovative product, no doubt about that. The product is much like a solid soap in stick format which you twist up from the bottom. The soap itself is beige with small pieces of fermented rose petals. SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick has a mild scent of roses and soap, nothing spectacular. The product does the job, and it is an exciting and fun product to try. The skin becomes clean, fresh, smooth and soft. However, I can’t say that the rose petals inside the cleansing stick really exfoliates the skin that much? It’s certainly not a matter of a scrub type cleanser, that’s for sure.

First impression review SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick water-based cleanser from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

First impression review SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick water-based cleanser from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

I admit, I have some problems with the SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick to be honest. I have tested this product both on dry and damp skin to be clear. On dry skin you get more product because the stick clings onto the skin when applying. I like that much better! But then you have to be quite clean and dry from the start not wearing foundation I feel. If you don’t want the stick to get dirty that is. On moist skin, the stick slides around and you get less product and a wet stick. When you massage your face, it’s easy to make a creamy foam though. The stick will become messy with time I feel, a clear disadvantage. A little goes a long way though, and a small amount of product us enough for making foam.

If you don’t use a lot of makeup then SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is very nice and gentle, not irritating the skin.

It might take a while to get used to the SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick? I like the product, it’s a nice good quality facial cleanser. But I don’t love it so far. It does the job well, but do you really want to apply the stick directly to skin wearing makeup? Should you then rinse off the stick after application? Or do you have to use an oil-based cleanser before using this product?

SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick costs about 22 euros with free shipping from Korea, a totally fair price I feel. But the product isn’t better than any other Korean foaming face wash in a tub in my opinion. Not top ratings from me unfortunately, but definitely over avarage ratings any way! It does clean your skin effectively but gentle enough not irritating the skin. Big plus since this product is also suitable for sensitive skin as well.

SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is an innovative exciting product, but I’m not fully 100% sold on this one unfortunately.

I would recommend SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick for all skin types, from dry to combination and mature skin. Also suitable for sensitive skin. If you don’t use makeup, then SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is awesome! If you are used to double cleansing and use a lot of makeup, I would rather choose a regular foaming cleanser in a tub … I don’t think I fully get SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick just yet!

Product: SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick
Price: 22 euros / 80gr
Formula: Water-based foaming cleansing, which includes fermented rose petals that gently massages the skin without irritating.
Skin type: ALL. From mature to combination and dry skin. Also suitable for sensitive skin.

Banila Co Clean It Zero VS Heimish All Clean Balm

Let’s compare Banila Co Clean It Zero and Heimish All Clean Balm. 2 of Korea’s best oil-based cleansing products in solid balm type texture.

Banila Co Clean It Zero is the original and first! Very unique cleansing product in solid form when it was first launched in Korea some years ago. A brand new type of oil-based cleanser with a balm type texture. Heimish All Clean Balm is the new version, and said to be even more gentle to the skin and the eyes when reading reviews. Let’s put these products to the test and compare them side by side. Which one is actually the best and most effective?

Heimish
All Clean Balm

Packaging

Banila Co Clean It Zero comes in a white plastic jar with a pink screw on lid. Inside there’s a soft plastic inner lid, holding a transparent plastic spatula.

Packaging

Heimish All Clean Balm comes in a solid white plastic jar. Nice looking packaging with graphic patterns and golden details. Sleek! Inside there’s a sturdy plastic inner lid holding a white plastic spatula.

Formula

Banila Co Clean It Zero resembles white stearin in the jar. The feeling when scooping up product using the spatula is roughly like stiff honey. The product melts on the skin and turns into an oily vaseline like texture that effectively melts away all makeup and impurities.

Formula

Heimish All Clean Balm resembles white stiff stearin in the jar. The same sense of solid honey when scooping up product using the spatula. Somewhat more “matte” and a bit less greasy texture than Banila Co. Melts on the skin to an oily texture. Still a bit less oily and shiny than Banila Co. Heimish is also hypoallergenic and free from parabens & dyes.

Scent

I just love the fruity fresh scent of Banila Co Clean It Zero. It’s lovely!

Scent

Heimish All Clean Balm has a more “grown up” scent. I would describe the fragrance as fresh herbs and pine tree kinda scent.

Ingredients

Mineral Oil, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, PEG-10 Isostearate, Polyethylene, Butylene Glycol, Water, Rubus Suavissimus (Raspberry) Leaf Extract, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract, Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Leaf Extract, Angelica Polymorpha Sinesis Root Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Malpighia Glabra (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Epilobium Angustifolium Leaf Extract, BHT, Butylparaben, CI 16255, CI 15985, Fragrance

Price

Banila Co Clean It Zero costs:
100ml / 15 euros
180ml / 21 euros

 

Price

Heimish All Clean Balm costs:
120ml / 16 euros

 

Overall feel

The product is applied to dry skin. The feeling on the skin during application is very similar to petroleum jelly or vaseline. Like massaging the face with a greasy oil. The product dissolves makeup and impurities with ease.

Overall feel

The product is applied to dry skin. Heimish All Clean Balm melts on the skin and turns into a fatty greasy balm/oil. Somewhat more “matte” and less greasy than Banila Co. Easily dissolves makeup and impurities without rubbing a whole lot.

Conclusion

Banila Co is slightly oilier and softer in texture, while Heimish is somewhat firmer and more “matte”. Heimish has a solid white color while Banila is a tiny bit white/pinkish. Banila Co feels a bit “fatter” and oilier when applied, more like vaseline. Heimish feels a bit more “matte” like a balm when applied. Both products become oily in contact with the skin. Both products smell nice and fresh. Banila Co has a more fruity scent and Heimish a more “grown up” scent of pine and herbs.

Heimish has a so-called hypoallergenic formula and is free from parabens and dyes. The product is therefore suitalbe for the most sensitive skin which is a big plus. Banila Co contains mineral oil, worth mentioning if you want to avoid that.

Banila Co Clean It Zero VS Heimish All Clean Balm. Best cleansing balm from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Banila Co Clean It Zero VS Heimish All Clean Balm. Best cleansing balm from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

I would recommend Heimish if you have sensitive skin or an oily skin type and like more “adult” scents. I would recommend Banila Co if you like fruity scents.

As far as the packaging goes, Heimish takes the prize because the jar feels more sturdy and expensive. Stylish design and graphic patterns with shiny golden details. Banila Co’s packaging feels more plastic and cheap to be honest. The extra inner lid inside the jar is made of translucent soft plastic in the Banila Co jar. The inner lid in the Heimish jar is made out of more sturdy white plastic, and therefore of better quality. I would recommend Heimish if you have very sensitive skin, or an oily skin type and like more “grown up” scents. I would recommend Banila Co if you like fruity scents.

When it comes to removing makeup, dirt and impurities, both products are basically equal and just as good as the other. Both melts away mascara, eyeliner, foundation and impurities with ease. Perhaps Heimish is a tiny bit more effective, and Heimish is also supposed to be more gentle to the eyes and skin. For my part, I think both products are equally effective and gentle to my skin, and none of them irritate my eyes in any way. Both products are great I feel!

Banila Co Clean It Zero VS Heimish All Clean Balm. Best cleansing balm from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Heimish wins on packaging & formula while Banila Co has a nicer scent in my opinion. Both products are basically equal when removing makeup & impurities.

WINNER: Heimish because it’s hypoallergenic

FIRST IMPRESSION: A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple

Let’s test the A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple, a Korean sheet mask containing yogurt & lactobacillus.

A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle is a line of Korean sheet masks that all contain yogurt and lactobacillus. They remove dead skin cells, strengthening the skin’s protective barrier and makes the skin hydrated, fresh and healthy looking. This line of sheet masks comes in many lovely varieties such as Plain, Apple, Strawberry, Blueberry and Mango. Today I’m testing the A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask with green apples.

A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple has a rather boring packaging to be honest. Could definitely have been a bit more fun and vibrant looking. But I don’t judge a book by its cover. Let’s see what A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple brings to the table, here’s my review.

Review A'PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Oh, what a different sheet mask was my first thought when I opened the packaging. The sheet mask itself is attached to another mask of paper / plastic material. I had to read the instructions on the packaging to find out how to do apply the A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple. The plastic mask adds some extra support for the actual sheet mask and should simply be removed before applying the sheet mask. SO, unfold the mask, remove the very thin sheet mask from the protective plastic film, and apply the sheet mask over the face as usual.

A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple has an absolutely wonderful scent of sweet green apples. I just love this fresh fragrance, mild and really nice. The scent feels fresh and not at all too artificial as could be in some cases. A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask is so thin you guys, I mean super -thin-! The support mask definitely helps when folding this sheet mask. And when fully unfolded, there’s no problem to remove the actual sheet mask from the plastic film and apply the sheet mask on your skin.

Review A'PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask is just sooo cooling and refreshing on the skin. Because the material is so thin, the sheet mask sits perfectly tight against every part of the face. Even around eyes and nose where most  sheet masks often come loose. Perfect fit and remains tight to the skin for the entire treatment period. This is top notch in my opinion!

A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple is a deeply hydrating refreshing Korean sheet mask with a lovely scent of green apple. A bit of an AHA moment actually. I love it!

A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask feels incredibly cooling and deeply hydrating the skin. I just love this sheet mask! There could be a small misconception because this sheet mask is called “Yogurt”, so you might expect a white creamy type essence. But the essence is thin and translucent, but oh so nice and fresh. Suitable for everyone and anyone I feel! I can’t see anyone who wouldn’t appreciate A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask. Even though the mask itself is so thin, it keeps moisture well without drying too much during application.

I’ve seen A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask online for as cheap as 1.50 euros / pc. Also available in packs of 3 for about 5 euros and worth every penny in my opinion! A sheet mask completely in my taste. A bit of an AHA moment really. Although! – If I’m going to complain about something, then the support mask kinda wastes some of that lovely essence, so make sure you take advantage of every single drop. I applied the essence on my neck, the decolletage and the top of my hands. Afterwards, the skin was completely and thoroughly moisturized & deeply hydrated. I patted in the rest of the essence using my hands, and when everything was fully absorbed, the skin was fresh but definitely not shiny or oily in any way. This is a pure moisture injection I feel. I just found myself a new K-beauty favorite!

A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple sheet mask is a super thin Korean sheet mask that sits very tight to the skin and doesn’t dry out during application. Awesome!

New autumn week in K-beauty blog. More Korean skin care!

Hope you’ve all had a nice and restful weekend guys? I’m starting to panic over Christmas gifts, crazy right!?

I might be crazy thinking of Christmas gifts already, I know. But if you’re planning on buying skin care and makeup from Korea for Christmas, then it’s time to place your orders to ensure delivery in time. True? Shipping from Korea takes approximately 2-4 weeks, but sometimes you have to wait even longer than that. You never know is what I’m trying to say!

We have an exciting week ahead of us in K-beauty Blog. I’m working on some really cool collaborations, soon to be presented in this blog. I’m SO EXCITED you guys but I wont reveal anything just yet! Perhaps you’ve already seen the new “recent comments” feed I just lunched this weekend? Visible in the left meny / full screen and inside the mobile menu / phones and devices. Now it’s easier to find and read the latest comments in the blog. Thank you Karin for your feedback and suggestion about the comments, it turned out great!

This week, I’ll share two very exciting K-beauty reviews. One is a super-hyped luxury item, the SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick which I ordered a while ago. I’ll also review the A’PIEU Real Big Yogurt One Bottle Apple Sheet Mask from my latest Tokkitokki haul! Let me just say that one product was a hit while the other was kinda blaha! You can never guess! Don’t miss my K-beauty reviews this week guys!

If there’s time I’ll also share my big test comparing Banila Co Clean It Zero and Heimish All Clean Balm! Which cleansing balm is actually the best? Are they completely equivalent? Any differences? And which is my personal favorite? I’ll share all my thought this very week!

I would also like to thank @mirandaluxskincare who sent me these lovely sheet masks after her trip to Singapore, thank you so so much Mira! I’m so excited to try these and I’ll share my reviews later on in the blog of course.

FIRST IMPRESSION: PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule

Here’s my review on PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule. A Korean serum packed with 90% Centella extract. A healing & well-proven medicinal herb.

PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule serum contains a whole 90% Centella extracts and ceramides which heals, soothes and strengthens the skin. The bottle sais “whitening” and “anti-wrinkle”. Also suitable for sensitive skin. Heals and strengthens damaged skin. Anti-aging against wrinkles and lines. Gives new glow and an even skin tone. Helps elasticity and makes the skin firm and resilient. Strengthens the skin’s protective barrier. Free from parabens, alcohol, perfume and dyes. Could it get any better?

PureHeal’s is a fairly new Korean brand to me. I have previously tested their PureHeal’s Propolis 90 Ampoule which I liked. I find that PureHeal’s products are very “pure” in formula and contain natural ingredients and no unnecessary additives. That’s really great!

PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule serum is a quite thick gel like serum that comes in a glass bottle with a glass pipette dropper. The product is completely transparent and viscous. The serum melts on the touch of your skin and becomes very thin, fresh and super moist. Much like a mini moisture injection. A very faint scent of green plants and healing herbs.

PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule serum is healing, calming and soothing, which makes this serum perfect for sensitive skin, acne prone skin and troubled skin. Helps irritated skin and reducing redness. Anti-aging against wrinkles and lines, which also makes it great for mature skin. As this serum is very light and fresh, and absorbs quickly by the skin, doesn’t clog the pores. It’s also great for oily and combination skin types. Can be used by anyone really.

PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule feels very moist and fresh. And as I mentioned before, the formula is pure and natural without unnecessary additives. Can be used day and night by any skin type. This serum really gives the feeling of pure “wet” moisture from plants. Much like morning dew from the greenest forest. No stickiness, no fuss, just pure moist. I like this ampoule a lot, although I personally usually prefer a bit richer serums for my dry skin! Minus for the price that is somewhere from 25 euros and upwards. More expensive than many other good quality serums from Korea. But definitely worth trying, especially if you have acne prone skin or troubled irritated skin. Give this serum a week and you’ll learn to love it. I found myself a new favourite!

If you’re looking for a light & hydrating serum with healing and soothing properties, then PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule is absolutely perfect. No additives!

Product: PureHeal’s Centella 90 Ampoule
Price: 25 euros / 30ml
Formula: Contains a whole 90% Centella extracts and ceramides which are healing, soothing and strengthening the skin. New glow, better elasticity and treating wrinkles and lines.
Skin type: ALL. Perfect for mature skin, sensitive skin, acne prone skin & troubled irritated skin & redness.
