Best Korean sheet mask favourites autumn 2019

Today I’m sharing the best Korean sheet masks I’ve tested in the months of September and October. These masks are highly recommended by me!

Here they are, my top selection and favorite sheet masks of this fall which I highly recommend! You may already have seen some of them on my instagram and in my mini reviews / insta-stories? The theme goes in blue / green colors and there’s really something for every skin type. Some of these sheet masks are all about hard core deep care while others are incredibly cooling and refreshing. Some are anti-inflammatory and soothing while others are nourishing and softening the skin. The prices range goes from 2€ / pc when you buy multi-pack from Korea. But several of these sheet masks are also available in European stores.

FG Jelly Me Mask Pack

Best sheet masks from Korea recommended favourite FG Jelly Me Mask Pack sheet mask Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

This is the first sheet mask I’ve ever tried from Korean brand FG Beauty. I had no expectations for this sheet mask what so ever, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a so-called “Jelly Pack” sheet mask with lovely transparent “slimy” slippery and somewhat thicker gel like essence. The sheet mask is packed with deeply hydrating cactus extract. The material is quite thin, soft and cotton-like. The scent is absolutely delightful and goes towards floral, sweet, refreshing orange flavored candy and maybe white jelly bears? OK fit and good adherence. Wonderful cooling feeling on the skin. Afterwards, the skin is extremely sticky and almost greasy, so this sheet mask may not be for everyone. The FG Jelly Me Mask Pack is primarily a sheet mask for dry skin types as the skin is properly moisturized and deeply nourished. The skin looks saturated, healthy, smooth and nice with a healthy glow. And the amazing scent is absolutely divine. The FG Jelly Me Mask Pack can be difficult to get hold of, but if you see this mask, buy it! Highly recommended for dry and very dry skin types.

Leaders Step Solution Aloe Soothing Mask

Best sheet mask from Korea recommended favorite Leaders Step Solution Aloe Soothing Mask sheet mask Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

To be honest, I’ve never ever been disappointed with sheet masks from the Leaders brand. They always seem to hold a very nice quality. And the Leaders Step Solution Aloe Soothing Mask is no exception. A soothing Aloe Vera sheet mask that’s calming redness and irritation, deeply hydrating the skin and it’s suitable even for sensitive skin types. The material of the sheet mask is thin and soft and looks like a white mesh type fabric. The sheet mask is packed with a lot of wonderful refreshing translucent serum like essence. Very generous amount of essence indeed! And the scent is lovely, mild and fresh towards nature and “pure” healthy skin care. The sheet mask has a good fit and very nice adherence. An incredibly comfortable sheet mask and a truly cooling and refreshing feeling on the skin throughout the whole treatment period. This sheet mask holds moisture incredibly well despite being thin. I could even squeeze out leftover essence after the treatment to the point the mask was actually dripping! After treatment, the essence feels almost like an aloe vera gel on the skin. The skin is very sticky, properly moisturized and deeply nourished. The skin looks fresh and nice with a healthy glow, but without being excessively shiny. I would mainly recommend the Leaders Step Solution Aloe Soothing Mask for normal, dry, combination and sensitive skin types and especially for the night. A great, high quality sheet mask that really has a profound effect on the skin. I love this one!

Missha Real Solution Tencel Sheet Mask AHA / BHA

Best sheet mask from Korea recommended favorite Missha Real Solution Tencel Sheet Mask AHA / BHA Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Missha Real Solution Tencel Sheet Mask AHA / BHA is a “pore control” mask targeting enlarged pores. This sheet mask contains AHA / BHA acids that gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and smoothing out the skin surface. The sheet mask also contains eucalyptus, seaweed and lotus root. The material is thin and quite soft, almost like a mixture of a fabric and a paper tea bag. The sheet mask has the most wonderful scent of sweet fruity skin care. The mask is soaked in lovely translucent whitish essence that’s dripping, super fresh indeed! OK fit, nice adherence. The feeling on the skin is incredibly cooling and refreshing. And after treatment it feels like you’ve just dived into a cool pool. Count on fresh peachy skin. Sticky feeling that’s soon passing. The skin looks healthy and fresh with improved radiance after treatment. This is one of the better sheet masks from this affordable line I think. Suitable for all skin types except maybe for sensitive skin. Especially good for targeting enlarged pores, acne scars and uneven skin. And perfect if you want something super refreshing and cooling. A very nice sheet mask indeed!

Missha Phytochemical Skin Supplement Sheet Mask Chlorophyll / AC Care

Best sheet mask from Korea recommended favorite Missha Phytochemical Skin Supplement Sheet Mask Chlorophyll / AC Care Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

This is a colorful and exciting Korean sheet mask that I highly recommend for acne, acne prone skin, troubled skin or sensitive skin types that sometimes gets break outs. Missha Phytochemical Skin Supplement Sheet Mask Chlorophyll / AC Care is a super refreshing sheet mask packed with chlorophyll, including broccoli, kale and spinach. The sheet mask is soothing and calming the skin preventing irritation and inflammation. The sheet mask itself is turquoise and looks like a soft cotton fabric. OK fit and excellent adherence. This sheet mask is basically hugging every little part of the skin throughout the whole treatment period. Generous amount of essence that is light flowing, transparent and incredibly fresh. The sheet mask has this clean and refreshing minty pine kinda scent. The feeling on the skin from the first moment and throughout the whole treatment period is cooling and super fresh. Somewhat sticky when you pat in the remaining essence. The skin feels cooled off, hydrated and very fresh with improved radiance after treatment. Like after diving in to a cool pool. Suitable for most skin types from normal to combination and oily skin. But it’s ideal for sensitive skin types, acne prone skin and troubled skin. Don’t forget to use all of the remaining essence from the packaging. Enough for at least 4 extra applications. A really nice sheet mask that costs from about 2-2.50€ / pc. It’s the best!

Holika Holika Skin Rescuer Mask Sheet Madecassoside

Best sheet mask from Korea recommended favorite Holika Holika Skin Rescuer Mask Sheet Madecassoside Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Last but not least I present to you Holika Holika Skin Rescuer Mask Sheet Madecassoside! This lovely hard core deeply nourishing sheet mask contains ingredients line centella, chamomile and lavender. A soothing, hydrating, moisturizing and deeply nourishing and anti-inflammatory sheet mask providing a new healthy glow. Holika Holika Skin Rescuer Mask Sheet Madecassoside has this lovely rich milky essence that looks like a white creamy lotion. The scent is fresh, mild and very nice towards lovely skin care. The material is incredibly soft and somewhat elastic, similar to the softest gauze baby cotton fabric. Good adherence and OK fit. There are 2 strange extra pieces at the top of this mask for “easy application”, see image above. These can be removed and they are really completely unnecessary in my opinion. Lovely cooling and soothing feeling on the skin. Afterwards, the skin is extremely sticky for a little while. Almost an oily feel and a bit “greasy” like from applying shea butter. The skin feels properly moisturized and supple, deeply nourished and saturated with moisture. This is a hard core deep care sheet mask that I would highly recommend for dry, very dry and extremely dry skin types, and especially for the night. This sheet mask is also ideal for irritated, rebellious and troubled skin and acne prone skin as it’s soothing and calming inflammation. The “oily” type feel after treatment may not suit everyone, but my dry skin just loves this sheet mask. It’s also incredibly affordable from 2€ / pc when buying multi-packs. A really nice budget friendly Korean sheet mask!

Korean skin care in fun packaging

Something that’s constantly recurring in Korean skin care, is the playful fun and colorful packaging. Korean brand Tonymoly definitely takes the lead.

When I first started using Korean skin care some years ago, I really didn’t understand the fun and almost childish packaging. I thought that the products looked like toys from MacDonalds to be honest. This made me extremely doubtful about the quality. But that’s exactly what K-beauty is all about you guys. Fun packaging or not, Korean skin care always seem to keep a good quality I feel! And the innovative fun looking jars only makes the skin care routine more joyful, what’s not to love?

Tonymoly is a well-known Korean brand that is constantly coming up with innovative, fun and very colorful packaging. Tonymoly offers hand creams, sleeping masks and lip balms looking like delicious fruits, berries and cute animals. The quality is still there, and at the same time these products are very joyful and fun to use. Other Korean brands such as It’s Skin, Etude House and Holika Holika also embraces this lovely K-beauty trend. What do you think, weird or fun?

K-beauty,
good quality skin care in fun packaging!

These are sleeping masks, various facial masks, lip balms and hand creams etc. OMG so cute I love it! Sure, it’s not a question about high-end products, but these products really do work well, and the price range is very budget friendly.

OMG! How cute are these you guys !! Who doesn’t like sweet irresistible packaging any way? These are also great for fun gifts. I can’t get enough of Korean lip balms as they often cost around 3-6€ / pc. They come in an endless variety of lovely packaging looking like sweets, pastries, ice creams, fruits, animals and much more. Some of my favorite lippies are shown in the image above. It’s Skin Macaron lip balm is transparent and has the most wonderful scent of grapes. Tonymoly Cherry Lip Balm provides more coverage and a summer fresh coral / peach tone to the lips. The small pink rabbit is Tonymoly Bunny Petit Gloss Bar and comes in a whole range of lovely colors, and is both softening and moisturizing giving a nice color to the lips. Not to mention the super cute Holika Holika Dessert Lip Balm in the form of small desserts. Sheer youthful “natural” color on the lips that can be built up. I mean how cute are these!

FIRST IMPRESSION: Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum

Let’s test a really affordable vitamin C serum from Korea which is also hydrating the skin. Here’s my review of Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum.

Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum is a Korean Vitamin C serum containing 10% Vitamin C and 84% Hyaluronic Acid. Ingredients also include niacinamide, red ginseng, various fruit, flower and plant extracts and hydrolyzed collagen. Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum is made of 99% natural ingredients. This product has an anti-age formula targeting wrinkles and lines, and brightening the skin for a more even complexion. Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum also reduces sun damaged skin and smoothing out acne scars, removing dark circles and making the skin more even and firm looking.

Review Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum from Korea Acne Wrinkles Mature skin Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

This is my first full size product that I’ve tried and tested from the Korean brand Purito. But if you have ordered Korean skin care recently, you’ve surely, just like me, received various Purito samples? In the Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum samples, the serum might have become orange or quite dark towards red. The product is still supposed to be good for use even though the serum has darkened. But I’m pretty sure it’s the vitamin C that has oxidized, making the serum much less effective. A fresh bottle of Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum should contain a light yellow serum. Good to know.

Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum comes in a dark brown frosted plastic bottle that feels nice and solid. Classic pump applicator at the top. Handy packaging and nothing strange there. The serum itself is light-flowing and translucent with a yellow hue. I think of liquid gold. 1 pump is perfect for one application I feel. The product is easy to apply on the skin and the texture is moist, smooth and almost like a light “oil”? Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum is extremely sticky on the skin, but the stickiness goes away as soon as you apply the next product. The serum has good absorption in my opinion. And the stickiness is soon passing anyway. After a while it hardly feels like you’ve applied anything at all and the skin looks healthy without being oily or shiny. In other words, the formula is light and fresh. Very faint vitamin type scent. Nothing heavy or bothering at all.

Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum is an incredibly affordable Korean vitamin C serum with a full 99% natural ingredients. 1 pump is just enough!

Review Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum from Korea Acne Wrinkles Mature skin Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

I’ve noticed from the first moment that Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum felt more gentle on the skin than many other Vitamin C Serums I have tried and tested in the past (eg Wishtrend or Tiam / OST). That’s because Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum “only” contains 10% vitamin C and a full 84% hydrating hyaluronic acid. Because I have dry skin, my skin often feels dehydrated, tight and red after using vitamin C serums. At least if I use the concentrated ones with up to 20-30% vitamin C. Vitamin C products can sometimes be too strong and harsh for the skin, so use them with caution. One can often feel that tingling or burning sensation on the skin. But using 1 pump of Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum I don’t feel any discomfort. No stinging, burning or redness. I really like the formula, and that you do get both hydration and vitamin C in one easy step. I also find that Purito’s serum feels less “tacky”, smells better and feels more fresh than many other vitamin C serums I’ve used in the past. Really nice indeed!

If the serum changes color to dark orange, that means that the vitamin C has oxidized and lost its effect. It’s not dangerous to continue to use the serum despite the darkening color. However, I prefer to use fresh vitamin C serums and I throw them away them as soon as they are oxidized. The shelf life is usually about 6 months.

Vitamin C oxidizes over time. Therefore, keep Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum in a dark and cool place for storage. For example in the fridge.

The effect on the skin is nice. After a few weeks use, my skin looks fresh and even in the morning. Much like when you’ve had a good night’s sleep. The long-lasting effect is supposed to reduce wrinkles, pigmentation and age spots making the skin even, firm and youthful looking. I would recommend Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum to most skin types actually. From normal, dry, mature and combination skin to oily skin types. Also good for acne prone skin. The serum is fresh and light, has good absorption and can be added to any skin care routine in my opinion. However, this product still contains 10% Vitamin C which is a powerful ingredient in skin care. Be careful if you have sensitive skin, irritated troubled skin or redness.

My sister with sensitive acne prone and combination skin likes Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum very much and she’s already using her second bottle. She mainly uses vitamin C to target pimples and acne, and to keep her skin even, fresh and bright looking. She has tested most of the well known Korean vitamin C serums including Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum, Tiam My Signature Red C Serum and Tiam C20 My Signature C-Source Serum (previously named OST C20 Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum). So the fact that she chooses to continue with Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum actually says a lot!

Plus because Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum has a pure formula with a full 99% natural ingredients. Plus for a neat and handy packaging. Plus for the price which is around 15€ with free shipping from Korea, and you do get a full 60ml of product which is very generous. I like the pure formula that contains a lot of vitamin C, but at the same time it’s packed with hydrating hyaluronic acid. No tightening, burning or stinging the skin. Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum is an effective but at the same time gentle vitamin C serum in my opinion. Very nice and highly recommended by me. The only thing I might miss is maybe an even nicer scent? Other than that, high ratings from me!

If you often feel that burning, stinging or tightening sensation after using vitamin C serums, then go for Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum. It has a gentle and hydrating formula!

Product: Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum
Price: 15€ / 60ml
Formula: Contains 10% Vitamin C and 84% Hyaluronic Acid. Ingredients also includes niacinamide, red ginseng, various fruits, flowers and plant extracts and hydrolyzed collagen. The serum reduces wrinkles, pigmentation and acne scars, providing a smoother and firmer skin. Skin type: ALL. Dry, combination and oily skin types, mature skin and acne prone skin.

JOLSE Mega haul: 5kg Korean skin care 250€!

Last week I received this huge order from Jolse with a full 5kg of Korean skin care. Today I’m sharing this amazing K-beauty haul YEY!

In my instagram stories, you amazing readers voted for a sneak peek of this huge JOLSE package I received in the mail last week. And today I’m sharing the full order! We’re talking 5kg of Korean skin care worth 250€! Here comes the full post with all the products listed as well as more info about shipping and customs. I’ve said it before, JOLSE aka iamlove-shop on Ebay is one of my favorite sellers from Korea. Always free shipping and the delivery time is about 3 weeks to Europe. And you always get free samples with every order, and sometimes even sheet masks and full size products. Customs to Sweden is usually about SEK 200-300 (20-30€) for packages of this size and value. This package was 25€ in customs. I always order together with friends and then we share customs. Prices in Korea are usually 50-60% cheaper than in Europe, so there is a lot of money to be saved despite customs fees. Make sure to check out the customs in your country before ordering products from Korea.

You know that feeling when you have a large Korea package in front of you and you don’t fully remember exactly what you’ve ordered. I love it!

FIRST IMPRESSION: Huxley Secret of Sahara skin care line

I have tested 4 well-chosen products from Korean brand Huxley and the Secret of Sahara line. Here’s my first impression review.

The key ingredient in Huxley’s skin care line is Prickly Pear Seed Oil. Prickly Pear is a cactus in the Sahara desert. A strong, sustainable plant that survives in the most harsh and hostile desert climates. These products are rich in antioxidants that protect the skin from stress, aging, external impact and pollutions.

Review Huxley Secrets of Sahara Skin Care Line from Korea Deeply hydrating Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Most of Huxley’s products come in sturdy glass bottles and jars, some in plastic tubes. The line looks incredibly nice with its minimalist design. The Huxley brand really breathes lux premium quality products. I have tested several products from the Huxley Secret of Sahara line. Including the toner, a facial mask, the oil essence and a face cream. I’ll share my thoughts on all of these products in my review today.

Huxley Secret of Sahara Extract It Toner

Review Huxley Extract It Toner Moisturizing Facial toner from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe
Review Huxley Extract It Toner Moisturizing Facial toner from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Huxley Secret of Sahara Extract It Toner is a hydrating toner rich in antioxidants. The key ingredient is cactus water, cactus extract and seed oil from the Prickly Pear cactus. The toner also contains pink centifolia and Crape Myrtle Extract which soothes the skin and improves the skin’s texture. Huxley Extract It Toner contains a full 90% natural ingredients. This toner helps to balance the skin’s pH level as well as hydrating the skin. The result is fresh, clear and supple skin.

Huxley Secret of Sahara Extract It Toner has the most lovely scent of flowers. Something like lilies, jasmine and lily of the valley. The product looks very similar to water. It’s completely transparent and light flowing. The skin is immediately hydrated and refreshed. Really sticky feeling right after application if you pat in the toner using your hands. But the stickiness goes away shortly. Good absorption. This toner feels moist and light, and not at all heavy. And the skin doesn’t become shiny or oily after application.

I would recommend this toner for most skin types really. From normal to combination and oily skin. This toner should also be suitable for sensitive skin. On dry skin, one can layer the toner for maximum hydration. I prefer to pat in hydrating toners into the skin using my hands. Huxley Extract It Toner is one of Huxley’s best selling products, and I really do understand why. This is a nice toner. However, I think this product is way too heavily scented for my taste. Even though the scent is very nice. The toner is the most scented product out of all of Huxley’s products. And for that very reason, the toner was the product I liked the least unfortunately. It helps if you apply this toner using a cotton pad instead of using your hands. And the formula is very good indeed! But the smell is simply too strong. I would therefore rate this toner something like 3.5/5

Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence

Review Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence Serum from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe
Review Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence Serum from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is a light and optimized blend of oil and essence that stimulates and revitalizes the skin. This award winning oil essence contains 61% Prickly Pear Seed Oil and it’s rich in vitamin E and antioxidants. Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence provides lasting hydration and nourishment to the skin. The product also contains Yerba Mate Leaf, Acai Berry, Camu Camu and Quinoa, strengthening and moisturizing the skin. Packed with antioxidants this oil essence also protects skin from external stress, pollution and aging. Free from synthetic dyes and mineral oils. Apply the oil essence before or instead of a serum.

The Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is a unique product of its kind. This oil essence feels like a mixture between a serum and a very light facial oil I would say. If you don’t think of it as an oil essence, then you would probably use it as a regular serum. Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is translucent towards white and the product looks much like a glossy gel, similar to a classic serum. Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is definitely not a heavy or greasy product, but definitely a little more moisturizing and softening than most moist essences.

The oil essence has same lovely floral scent towards jasmine and lilies. Sticky feeling when applied. Good absorption and the skin immediately feels properly moisturized, but without being greasy or shiny. If you feel that facial oils are too heavy, then Huxley the Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is the perfect light version. I mainly use this product as the first “serum” directly after toner. I would recommend Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence for normal, dry and combination skin types. One of my favorite products from Huxley and highly recommended, although the scent is quite strong with this one too. I’d rate the Oil Essence at 4.4/5

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity

Review Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity anti age face cream from Korea wrinkles K-beauty Blog Europe

The Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity is a firming face cream targeting wrinkles and signs of aging. Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity is strengthening and moisturizing the skin, creating a protective barrier. This face cream contains a full 51% Organic Sahara Cactus Oil, from a cactus that survives in the most hostile and harsh desert climates. The face cream is also packed with antioxidants that protect the skin from external stress, pollutions and free radicals. The formula is very concentrated and dense. It’s also hypoallergenic and free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils and synthetic dyes.

The Huxley brand offers 3 different face creams, from light hydration to deep nourishment. Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity is the “heaviest” and richest of them all and it’s perfect for normal to dry skin types, and mainly as a night cream. The formula is incredibly smooth and creamy but at the same time it’s very concentrated with a solid dense texture to it. The product looks much like a creamy clay mask or body butter inside the jar. I’m thinking of shea butter. The result on the skin is very nice. This cream is properly moisturizing, softening and deeply nourishing the skin. And despite this face cream being really thick and rich, it still has good absorption. You do feel that this cream contains oils, but in a good way. The skin becomes incredibly supple and soft and the cream is easy to apply and massage into the skin. A wonderful relief for dry skin types for sure.

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity has the same nice floral scent of lilies and jasmine as the other products from this line. But in the cream, the scent is just right and not overwhelmingly strong. The skin feels properly moisturized and slightly “oily” after application but without being sticky or greasy. The absorption is still good. I feel that this face cream is gentle to the skin without irritating. I would mainly recommend Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity to normal skin, dry skin, mature skin, and possibly combination skin, mainly as a night cream. For dry and really dry skin types, this cream do wonders both as a day cream and a night cream. An incredibly nice and concentrated face cream with that lux premium feel. Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity might as well have cost 70€ or more, but it’s only like 20€. Really good quality and highly recommended by me. My absolute favorite from Huxley and I rate this cream at 5/5.

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask: Keep Calm

Review Huxley Healing Mask Keep Calm Facial Mask Sensitive Skin Redness Rosacea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm is a soothing and anti-inflammatory facial mask that provides nourishment and moisture to depleted, dehydrated and dull lifeless skin. This face mask has a jelly texture and calms the skin providing extra moisture while the mask renews and soothes the skin. The face mask is packed with antioxidants providing a hydrating effect, relieving redness and irritation while improving the skin tone, and it’s also anti-inflammatory. Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm is ideal to use after sun exposure, ie the perfect after sun mask. The key ingredients are cactus water and Prickly Pear cactus seed oil, Centella, Hyaluronic acid, Citrus and U-active® P8.

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm looks like a really thick green gel with small fragments in it. I spontaneously think of rich sticky Aloe Vera Gel. The mask has the same amazing floral scent of lily of the valley and jasmine, and the scent is quite pleasant. Spread the face mask on clean dry skin and leave it to work for 10 minutes. Then rinse your face. Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm feels incredibly gentle and cooling on the skin. I usually take a good amount of product and spread it evenly on my skin. Very soothing and a much needed relief for dry rough skin and irritated, red, flushed and warm skin, like rosacea. When the face mask dries, it goes from a moist and cooling gel to becoming properly sticky. The face mask is easy to rinse off and the skin feels fresh and nice after use.

I would mainly recommend Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm to sensitive skin types. To soothe and calm redness and irritation and to hydrate and restore sun damaged skin. This face mask is suitable for normal, dry and combination skin and it’s ideal as an after sun mask. An incredibly gentle facial mask that feels cooling on the skin. I’d rate the Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm at 4.6/5, a really nice facial mask in my opinion!

Huxley’s products has the most wonderful scent of jasmine, lily of the valley and lilies. However, some of the products are too heavily scented, especially the toner.

Overall, I like Huxley’s skin care line! These products come in sturdy bottles and jars of glass with minimalist stylish design. My personal favorite is above all the amazing face cream Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity. Huxley’s products feel modern and has that premium feel. Plus for the high quality of Huxley’s skin care products and the formula with natural ingredients. Plus for the cheap price range for this quality as these products cost about €15-20 / pc with free shipping from Korea. Both plus and minus for the floral scent which is lovely but way too strong on several of these products in my opinion. If you dislike scented of skin care then this skin care line may not be for you. Overall really good and affordable products. Huxley is absolutely recommended by me, especially the face cream which is absolutely divine! I also love the facial mask which is incredibly gentle and suitable even for sensitive skin.

I especially recommend the face cream Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity, it is absolutely divine!

Product: Huxley Toner, Oil-essence, Cream Anti-gravity & Keep Calm Mask
Price: €15-20 / product
Formula: The key ingredient is Prickly Pear Seed Oil that deeply hydrates and moisturizes the skin. These products are rich in antioxidants which protect the skin from external stress, aging and pollutions.
Skin type: Normal, dry, combination and mature skin. The toner is also suitable for oily skin. The facial mask is suitable for sensitive skin & redness.

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula affordable serums!

Today we’re gonna take a closer look at It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Serums which comes in a huge variety in all the colors of the rainbow.

Seriously, how nice are these colorful serums from Korean brand It’s Skin! I bargained a few of these myself at H&M SALE this summer for 10€ / pc. It’s Skin Skin Power 10 Formula comes in 13 different kinds targeting different skin concerns and treatment areas. There’s truly something for every skin type. It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Serum is also incredibly easy to get hold of in stores around Europe and online. These serums come in 3 different sizes: 10ml, 30ml and 60ml. If you order directly from Korea, these serums cost about 10€ / 30ml and the price in European stores for the same size is about 20-25€ / pc, still very affordable in my opinion.

It's Skin Power 10 Formula Korean serum. Affordable high quality Korean skin care | K-beauty Europe

What I really like about It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Serums is that you can mix and match to treat any skin concerns you might have. Apply in layers, thinnest first. These serums has good absorption and nice scents. My personal favorites are the yellow one VC Effector (Vitamin C) and the blue one GF Effector (Hydration). I’ve also heard that the Syn-Ake should be very nice indeed, which is the next one on my wish list for sure. The Syn-Ake serum actually mimics snake venom to relax the muscles, and thereby reducing wrinkles and lines. Sounds like botox in a serum for 10€ only. It’s gonna be hard to find any cheaper skin care targeting wrinkles for sure.

Hanyul sleeping masks with yuja & brown pine leaves

Today I’m going to talk some more about Hanyul’s wonderful sleeping masks with brown pine leaves and refreshing yuja. Yummy!

I really do think that Hanyul Sleeping Masks are absolutely wonderful and a joy to use. These Korean sleeping masks hold a good quality in my opinion. A sense of luxury in everyday life. And they are providing that little extra something your skin might need as the weather is getting colder. I would recommend the Hanyul Brown Pine Leaves Sleeping Mask to normal, dry and combination skin types, mature skin and rough skin that needs something nourishing, moisturizing and softening. I would recommend Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Mask to normal and combination skin types, acne prone skin, and tired dull skin that has lost its natural glow and if you like vitamin C products. Let’s take a closer look at these very nice Korean facial masks and why I recommend them!

Hanyul Brown Pine Leaves Sleeping Mask

Hanyul Brown Pine Leaves Sleeping Mask Facial Mask from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

This wonderful sleeping mask looks like lovely moist caramel fudge inside the jar. The texture is smooth, creamy and moist, and it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all. An embracing gentle sleeping mask with a mild green scent. This lovely mask is nourishing, hydrating, moisturizing and softening the skin. It’s also anti-age preventing wrinkles and lines. This mask is kinda low-key but it grows on you over time and it’s absolutely amazing if you ask me! Hanyul Brown Pine Leaves Sleeping Mask is highly recommended if you want a nourishing, gentle and embracing sleeping mask. My personal favorite of these two actually. Read my full review here. If you have a dry skin type or mature skin, then go for the Brown Pine mask. It’s lovely!

Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Mask

Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Mask facial mask from Korea Korean skincare K-beauty Blog Europe

While the Brown Pine mask is more low-key, the Yuja mask is colorful and exciting in every way. This sleeping mask has the most divine scent of lemon, or yuja which is the key ingredient. And it’s really a natural and fresh lemon scent that truly wakes up the skin. It contains vitamin C complex improving the skin elasticity with a brightening effect. Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Mask looks similar to a yellow glossy fairly firm gel cream with small yellow pieces of yuja inside. The thoughts immediately goes to lemon curd. Good absorption and the skin instantly feels awakened, refreshed and hydrated. If you have normal or combination skin, an oilier skin type, or tired dull skin with no radiance, then go for the yuja mask, yummy!

Hanyul’s sleeping masks hold a good quality within a nice price range in my opinion. Highly recommended!

These 2 Korean facial masks are totally different from each other, but they do have one thing in common. They are both good quality masks and suitable in any evening routine. When your skin needs that little extra something, then sleeping masks are absolutely perfect to add to your night routine. Apply as the last step in your skin care routine in the evening, and let the mask work overnight. Wash your face as usual the next morning. Choose the sleeping mask that is most suitable for your skin type and needs.

Hanyul Brown Pine Leaves Sleeping Mask is one of my absolute favorite sleeping masks of all time actually. But it seems that this particular product has stopped from manufacturing? My friend in Korea can’t find it anywhere anymore, but it can still be ordered online from a couple of different Korean web shops as well as sites like Ebay and Amazon. Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Mask, on the other hand, is much easier to get hold of! At least for now. These sleeping masks should cost about 18-25€ / pc so don’t over pay. When the demand is greater than the supply, prices can easily go up I’ve noticed.

Have you tried and tested any sleeping masks from Korean brand Hanyul? What did you think? Feel free to share in the comments.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask

Let’s put Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask to the test. This is a luxurious Korean hydro-gel sheet mask! Here’s my review.

Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask is a premium quality Korean sheet mask. Ingredients include gold snail secretion filtrate, white ginseng and pearl extract. Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask is brightening, deeply hydrating and improving the skin elasticity. The sheet mask is a so-called hydro-gel mask and it’s made of this plastic-like organic material that holds moisture incredibly well. Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask is a “water-glow” mask enhancing the skin’s overall appearance with increased vitality and deep hydration. The sheet mask responds to body temperature as the ingredients melt into the skin for maximum effect.

This is the first product I’ve ever tried from Korean brand Goodal and I had no expectations whatsoever about this product. The packaging is large and very nice looking with shiny silver details. Minimalist design with a nice pattern. The sheet mask feels lux judging from the packaging.

Review Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask sheet mask from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask is a two-piece sheet mask made of this soft and compliant plastic-like material called hydrogel. There is one sheet mask for the upper part of the face and one for the lower part. The sheet mask is well protected between four support masks, two white ones and two transparent plastic films. To be honest, the sheet mask is a little tricky to unfold because of all the protective films and the slippery gel-like essence. But it’s worth it in the end, trust me!

Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask has this amazing mild skin care scent that I love. The essence is similar to a translucent serum and the packaging is packed. Very generous indeed. The essence that remains in the packaging after use is enough for at least 2-3 extra applications, for example in the night routine. Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask really has that premium feel. Since it’s a two-piece mask, the fit is very nice indeed. Excellent adherence. Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask sits tightly to the skin without moving or sliding and it’s possible to move around and do things during the treatment period. This sheet mask holds moisture incredibly well because of the hydrogel material.

Review Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask sheet mask from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

The feeling on the skin is cooling and hydrating. Very nice and de-stressing, and absolutely perfect after a hard week’s work at the office. This mask reminds me of one of my absolute favorite sheet masks from Korea, the Tonymoly Age-Defying Snail Hydro-Gel Face Mask Sheet. And I have to say that Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask is just as good! Both sheet masks have high contents of healing, restoring and revitalizing snail secretion filtrate.

Let Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask work for 20 minutes and then remove the sheet mask. Gently pat in the remaining essence using your hands for maximum absorption. Really sticky feeling on the skin when the last bits of essence is absorbed. The skin feels fresh, healthy, nourished and deeply moisturized but without being shiny or oily. I don’t see any great results on wrinkles unfortunately, but the skin does feel firmer and almost “lifted” from the inside in some strange way. I like that!

The skin feels firmer and almost “lifted” from the inside in some strange way. I love this sheet mask!

I simply love the Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask! This is a high quality premium sheet mask in my opinion. Plus because the sheet mask has an excellent fit and very good adherence. The mask sits close to the skin throughout the treatment period without moving. Plus because the hydrogel material holds moisture incredibly well. Plus for the price range that goes from 15€ / 5 masks which can be considered affordable as this is a hydrogel mask. The only negative is that Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask might be a little tricky to unfold because of all the protective masks and the slippery essence. But once the sheet mask is placed on the skin, it’s absolutely amazing!

Review Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask sheet mask from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

I would recommend Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask to anyone who wants to pamper themselves with a really awesome Korean sheet mask of high premium quality. Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask doesn’t feel heavy or oily at all, but deeply nourishing and hydrating and it’s therefore suitable for most skin types. From normal and dry skin to combination skin. This sheet mask is absolutely perfect for mature skin, tired dull skin and for sagging aged skin that needs increased elasticity. If you find a pack of 5 masks for like 15€ then go for it I say! Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask is worth every penny. This is a sheet mask out of the ordinary and it’s highly recommended by me. Great job Goodal!

Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask is a high quality hydrogel mask and it’s highly recommended by me!

Product: Goodal Premium Snail Tone-up Hydro Gel Mask

It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Toner is one of my absolute favorite toners that I have ever tested actually. This is a slightly thicker and deeply hydrating toner that is patted into the skin using your hands. Apply the toner immediately after cleansing. This toner really makes a difference to the skin and I highly recommend it for dry skin types. The product looks almost like a very light flowing translucent thin serum. The skin immediately feels soothed, hydrated and refreshed after application. Suitable for normal, dry and combination skin. For oily skin types, the toner might even be used as a light and refreshing moisturizer. Also works well for sensitive skin types. I highly recommend this toner.

It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Serum

It's Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Serum from Korea Dry Skin Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Because I have dry skin, It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Serum is one of my personal favorites from this skin care line. This serum is white and milky and deeply moisturizing the skin. It looks like a white glossy lotion but although the texture is quite airy and soft, this serum is rich and sturdy in every way. The skin becomes soft, supple and deeply nourished, and the skin feels properly moisturized almost like after using a face cream. Good absorption. The serum is mainly recommended for dry and very dry skin types in need of deep care. The serum can also be used on its own as a single moisturizer for normal skin, combination skin and oily skin types as this product is very rich. Works well for sensitive skin types as well. A hard core moisturizing and nourishing serum that is incredibly affordable and very nice indeed! I love it and I’m already used 2 bottles.

It’s Skin Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Emulsion

Review It's Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Emulsion from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

The emulsion is like a light, airy and moist white glossy lotion that melts on the skin. The same amazing flowery scent. If you have dry and very dry skin, then apply the emulsion as a supplement before your face cream for maximum hydration. If you have normal, combination or oily skin then It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Emulsion can be used on it’s own as a light and fresh moisturizer, especially for daytime use. Also suitable for sensitive skin types. The texture is light with good absorption and a little amount of product goes a long way. The bottle is huge at 150ml and costs only 10€ .

It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream

Review It's Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

I was expecting a creamy and rich face cream as this line is targeting dry skin types. But surprisingly, It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream is a gel cream, well almost a gel. A glossy, translucent and whitish gel cream with good absorption. Lovely floral lilac scent. And although this cream is really fresh and not at all heavy or thick, it really makes a difference on the skin. The skin instantly feels soft, supple, hydrated and moisturized without being oily. If you have dry skin, then It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream will probably not be nourishing enough on its own, especially at night.

Very nice hydration without the cream ever feeling heavy or fatty on the skin. An incredibly fresh and crazy affordable Korean face cream suitable for many skin types including sensitive skin. This face cream is highly recommended by me. A full size jar 50ml is about 10€ WOW!

FIRST IMPRESSION: Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack

Today we’re gonna take a closer look at Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack. Cute mini masks that come in 10 different kinds targeting specific skin concerns. Here’s my review.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack are small cute mini masks targeting different skin concerns and skin types. Some are rich and creamy and some are light transparent gels. Some are peeling gels and peel off masks while others are wash off masks, but most of these masks are sleeping masks. A sleeping mask is applied last in the skin care routine at night to maximize the effect over night. These facial masks come in super cute squeezy packs of 10ml. The masks are packed with natural ingredients like shea butter, lotus, green tea, aloe vera and pomegranate to name a few. Each mask is sufficient for about 2-4 applications and the packaging is resealable with a screw cap.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack comes in 10 different kinds. All super cute mini-masks with colorful prints on them. There’s something for every skin type targeting different skin concerns. You immediately feel curious to try and test every single one of them. The packaging is pretty cute, but maybe not the most environmentally friendly. One pack is enough for about 2-4 applications. And Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack is absolutely perfect for traveling as well. These facial masks come with a handy screw cap and they are reclosable, very nice! I have tried the Lotus, the Green Tea and the Shea Butter mask.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower

Review Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower Peel Off Face Mask Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe
Review Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower Peel Off Face Mask Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower is a peel off mask. Apply the face mask on cleansed skin. Allow the mask to dry for 15-20 minutes. Then gently peel off the mask from the skin. Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower contains lotus flower and is a refreshing purifying and hydrating mask that exfoliates the skin removing dead skin cells. For clear, smooth and healthy looking skin.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower is a transparent facial mask that has this sticky viscous gel texture. It’s more light fluid than other masks in this line. This face mask smells like a mix of flowers and glue. Not the best scent unfortunately. Cooling feeling when applying the mask on the skin. I would recommend using at least half the tube just because it’s a peel off mask. Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower is really sticky at first, it basically feels like glue. But the mask soon dries down to this glossy smooth surface that is completely dry and non sticky. After 10-15 minutes you can start to peel off the mask starting from the the edges. The mask holds together pretty well and it’s quite easy to peel off. However, it does hurt to remove the mask from the nose and the cheeks. The skin might actually become slightly red after treatment. The skin feels clean and exfoliated but a bit “shocked”. Unfortunately not the best face mask in this line because of the glue scent and the slight redness after treatment. If you like peel off masks though, you might like Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Lotus Flower. Not for sensitive skin types though. The mask is sufficient for 1-2 applications. It is a cheap peel off mask and it works, so I’ll give this mask 3/5 in ratings.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Shea Butter

Review Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Shea Butter Nourishing Face Mask Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Shea Butter is a deeply nourishing and moisturizing sleeping mask packed with shea butter. Apply the face mask last in your skin care routine at night, and let the mask work overnight. Wash your face as usual in the morning. Creamy rich formula that is properly moisturizing, softening and deeply caring. Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Shea Butter creates a protective barrier, keeping the skin deeply hydrated and moisturized.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Shea Butter is a rich, deeply nourishing and sturdy face mask. The texture is similar to a thick white creamy lotion. Lovely mild nut scent and my thoughts goes to Hawaiian Tropic. This sleeping mask feels really creamy and moisturizing on the skin and almost a bit oily. The skin immediately feels soft, supple and nourished after application. A nice relief for dry skin types. I like Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Shea Butter because this face mask feels gentle and kind to the skin, and because it really makes a difference. In the morning, the skin is soft smooth and supple. I highly recommend this sleeping mask for dry and very dry skin types in need of deep care. Customize the amount of product to your skin type. The mask also works well for normal and combination skin as a deeply nourishing boost. The moisturized “oily” shea butter feel may not be for everyone. The mask is sufficient for about 4-5 applications. I rate the Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Shea Butter to 4.5 / 5. A favorite of mine from this line.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Green Tea

Review Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Green Tea hydrating Face Mask Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Green Tea is a soothing and hydrating sleeping mask packed with green tea. Apply the face mask last in your skin care routine at night, and let the mask work overnight. Wash your face as usual in the morning. The green tea sleeping mask is a soothing gel mask that makes the skin hydrated and relaxed.

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Green Tea looks like a somewhat yellow / green translucent thick quite firm gel. Very nice cooling feeling on the skin at application and you immediately feel de-stressed and relaxed. This sleeping mask feels sticky for a few minutes but the stickiness is soon passing. Mild green tea scent, something like ice tea in the summer. The skin instantly feels refreshed and hydrated but without the mask being oily or heavy. Good absorption. Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Green Tea is mainly recommended for normal and combination skin. Also good for soothing and hydrating acne prone skin. In the morning, the skin feels fresh and healthy. A nice lightweight and refreshing sleeping mask in gel form. Adjust the amount of product as needed. A thin layer is enough for oily skin types. Sufficient for about 4-5 applications. I would rate Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack Green Tea at 4.5 / 5

Missha Pure Source Pocket Pack is a line of cute and exciting facial masks costing like 1-1.50€ / pc. Absolutely perfect for traveling.

New Missha Night Repair Probio Ampoule VS Original Missha Borabit Ampoule

Let’s take a closer look at the new improved Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019.

The Missha Time Revolution line is one of Missha’s absolute best and most popular best-selling serums, and a cult classic in Korea, the U.S. and in Europe by now. With a full 10 million serums sold worldwide and no wonder. Initially, Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule was actually launched as a more affordable dupe for the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. The exact same key ingredients at a fraction of the price. Since then, Missha’s serum is one of the most well-known anti-age serums both inside and outside of Korea. And now the 4th generation is finally here, Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule. The new formula 2019 is more concentrated than ever. So, what’s the difference compared to earlier serums?

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019 VS Missha Borabit Ampoule Anti Age Serum Wrinkles Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

I admit, I’ve bought more than one bottle of this Korean anti-age serum over the years. And when I was 38, I actually lost a wrinkle when using the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule. See authentic before and after images here. In the image above, Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule about 4 years back until today. The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019 is seen on the right.

It’s said that the new improved Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule is even more concentrated, and more effective targeting wrinkles and lines than the original serum. With probiotic ingredients 10 times stronger, and a highly concentrated anti-age formula, the new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule is truly groundbreaking. This powerful serum works even better against wrinkles, it provides firmer skin and improves skin elasticity. The key ingredient is, just as before, fermented yeast that helps cell renewal, counteracts wrinkles, and brightening the skin providing new healthy radiance. The serum is also targeting pigmentation and age spots. I have compared the new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule with Missha’s previous serum, and here’s the result.

New Missha Probio Ampoule VS Missha Original Ampoule

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019 VS Missha Borabit Ampoule Anti Age Serum Against Wrinkles Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Missha has really outdone themselfes with this new formula 2019. The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule contains more than 50% bifida ferment lysate, which is 10 times more than the previous Night Repair Borabit Ampoule serum which only had 5%. The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule is also produced by Missha’s unique fermentation process Pro Ferment α ™. A so-called “Hot & Cold Double Fermentation Process”. This helps to maximize the absorption of the product deep into the skin where the concentrated skin care ingredients become as effective as possible. The 10 different Lactobacillus components also target damaged areas of the skin.

Both of these serums come in glass bottles with pipette droppers. The size and the proportions of the bottles are very much identical. The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019 has a gradient going from purple to beige gold and the bottle just feels so stylish and luxurious. The lid is in dark purple metal (seen to the right in the image). The original serum Missha Borabit Ampoule came in a bottle with a purple / pink gradient with gold details (to the left in the image).

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019 VS Missha Borabit Ampoule Anti Age Serum Against Wrinkles Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

If we look more closely at the product itself, there are some minor differences, although these serums are still very similar. The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule is slightly brighter and paler in color than the original. A light brownish color. The original serum Missha Borabit Ampoule is slightly darker in color and more golden. The texture is also different. The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule is a little bit thicker than the original. The new serum is somewhat firmer and more “gel-like”, while the old serum is slightly more fluid. And the scent? I personally find that the old Missha Borabit Ampoule serum smells a bit like rubber, while the new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule has this very faint scent of citrus if I try to explain. The new serum therefore feels more fresh.

The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019 has very good absorption, just like the original. The skin feels hydrated, slightly moisturized and sticky after application. I would describe the new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule as a medium-thick serum, it’s neither light nor heavy. A nice serum suitable for most skin types. Especially mature skin targeting wrinkles, lines and signs of aging. I think this affordable anti-age serum is simply awesome!

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule 2019 Anti-Age Serum Targeting Wrinkles Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

The new serum is slightly thicker in texture, more “gel-like” and the scent is nicer. The new Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule simply feels more lux. The original serum is a little bit more fluid and has a slightly more golden tone. Over all, the new serum feels fresher and nicer I think. And given the super improved formula, it’s not a difficult choice. Both serums cost about the same, 20€ with free shipping from Korea and worth every penny if you ask me.

Mizon Black Snail All In One Cream comes in a sturdy jar made of glass. It’s black with shiny silver prints on it. Nice packaging that doesn’t feel cheap at all, even though the price is only 15€ for an entire 75ml of product. Incredibly cheap and affordable for this kind of quality I think. Mizon Black Snail All In One Cream may not make a huge impact at first use, but this cream will grow on you over time.

The cream itself is white and glossy and basically looks like any ordinary face cream inside the jar. A tiny bit “gluey” texture, but not at all gross or slimy that one might expect with such high contents of snail secretion filtrate. Mizon Black Snail All in One Cream is a very nice facial cream in every way I think. The cream feels relatively light and airy, but at the same time it hydrates the skin well. Good absorption. Sticky feeling after application but the stickiness goes away shortly. The skin feels supple and hydrated without being oily or shiny.
