I’m very much pregnant in the middle of the Corona crisis!

Hi guys. I hope you stay healthy during this extreme Corona virus spread around the globe! I’m sending an extra big hug to all of you who are feeling scared and anxious in this moment of crisis.

As you’ve probably already noticed, I haven’t posted anything in the blog nor on Instagram in the recent past weeks. And that has its natural reasons as you can imagine. I have decided to take a break from the blog at the moment as my situation, like many others, is a bit out of the ordinary at the moment.

Any how, I would really like to share some good news with you guys, a small glimmer of light in this “time of crisis”. I am very much pregnant and I expect my second child in April. And I also have contact with some of you pregnant readers who are in the same situation as me. Maybe not the best timing to give birth, but one need to keep going and hope for the best. At the moment, we’re keeping our daughter home from pre-school to avoid the Corona virus. At least until I give birth in April. In Stockholm, we pretty much stay home, go for short walks, play and of course treat ourselves with lovely Korean skin care, sheet masks and long hot baths. With that said, I am taking a break from the blog for now, just for a while. But some stories may pop up on my Instagram in the near future. And you can still of course search for products in this blog, get lovely K-beauty inspo and read my previous reviews, recommendations and tips. I’ll keep the links in the web shop updated. And you are more than welcome to comment, send me pm or ask if you have questions about something…

Are you just like me pregnant? Or maybe worried, scared or anxious about the virus? Protect yourself and take care of each other. Although this is indeed a “world crisis” at the moment, it will pass eventually. Stay positive and hang in there you guys!

FULL REVIEW Rating 5/5

I have tested and used Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream. A luxurious and deeply moisturizing Korean anti-age eye cream within an astonishingly cheap price range. Here’s my review!

I can hardly find words for this luxurious Korean anti-age eye cream actually! Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream keeps an incredibly high quality, but at the same time it costs as little as 2 coffees down town. Pretty crazy right? If you’re looking for a creamy and rich eye cream with good absorption that properly moisturizes, softens and hydrates the skin without feeling overly oily or heavy, and which is also anti-age targeting wrinkles and lines. Then Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream is absolutely perfect. I have already bought several jars of this amazing Korean eye cream both for me, my friends and my family. And everyone who tried it agrees that it’s an incredibly nice and affordable anti-age eye cream well worth buying and trying, regardless of age or skin type!

Review Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream anti-age wrinkles lines mature skin Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream comes in this incredibly fine and luxurious looking glass jar with a golden lid. The jar has a nice gradient from dark purple at the top to pretty much white at the bottom. Fine golden prints on the jar that doesn’t wear off over time. The packaging certainly doesn’t feel cheap or plastic at all, rather expensive actually. A lux eye cream that looks incredibly posh sitting on the bathroom shelf. Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream looks like it costs at least 70€ or more. However, the shape of the jar makes you wanna dig your fingers under the inside edges of the jar to access all of the product. A minor detail that might irritate a few, and worth mentioning.

Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream is highly recommended for most skin types. A better anti-age eye cream in this price range just doesn’t exist!

Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream is a creamy and quite rich and properly moisturizing eye cream, but at the same time it isn’t too heavy or fatty on the sensitive skin around the eye area. The product looks much like a classic white face cream towards a slightly richer and creamier texture. A little goes a long way, and a small amount of product is enough for both eyes. The skin is immediately hydrated, nourished, soft and supple after application. Mild skin care scent towards sweet grapes. Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream has good absorption and is suitable for most skin types in my opition. A creamy medium thick anti-age eye cream towards the slightly richer end.

I would recommend Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream to most skin types actually. From normal and combination skin, to mature and dry skin types. In addition, this eye cream feels very gentle in its formula without irritating the skin or causing redness. And therefore it should be suitable for sensitive skin types as well. I can’t say that Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream removed my wrinkles. But the skin is absolutely properly moisturized, nourished, soft and supple with this wonderful eye cream. The fact that it only costs 7 for a full 50ml of product is completely crazy to me. Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream lasts a very long time as a little goes a long way. This cream might be a little too creamy and rich for oily skin types though, or if you prefer light eye creams.

Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream is a wonderfully creamy and rich eye cream in a luxurious looking packaging. The price is ridiculously cheap for this high quality in my opinion!

Great Korean skin care routine acne prone skin & pimples

Today I’m sharing a great Korean mini start routine suitable for acne, pimples and acne prone skin.

I get a lot of questions about Korean skin care suitable for acne, acne prone skin and pimples. Which products do you actually need to focus on? Today, I’m sharing a Korean mini start routine especially targeting acne, pimples, blemishes and troubled skin that is out of balance. If you suffer from acne prone skin all together, then this post is for you. We’re talking daily deep cleansing which I think is the most important step in any skin care routine really. But especially if you suffer from breakouts and clogged pores. Also, a great gentle face cream that is hydrating, healing and calming the skin with no irritation or clogging the pores. And for emergencies, a spot treatment or quick fix for targeting unwanted pimples and blemishes.

Cleansing is the most important step in any skin care routine I feel. If the skin is dirty with old makeup residue, clogged pores and full of dead skin cells, then it’s quite obvious that the skin cannot absorb and benefit from skin care very well. Not to mention that it’s rather disgusting to apply products on top of dirty skin. Well, these 4 Korean products combined would be a nice start routine especially suitable for acne, pimples and acne prone skin. Add a toner, an exfoliating face mask and a bunch of hydrating sheet masks to further boost your skin. If you have sensitive skin, troubled skin or if you suffer from acne then it’s a good idea to start slowly with a few products, and then add products gradually. Otherwise, the skin may strike back with breakouts and what not. Here are my top 4 best K-beauty products suitable for acne and pimples. A Korean mini start routine to gradually build on.

Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream is marketed as a high quality Korean eye cream within a super cheap price range.

Review Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream from Korea anti-age wrinkles mature skin Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

So what’s the thing about Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream besides being a crazy cheap Korean eye cream in a giant tube? Hmm I’m not sure, but I kinda like this product! Let me tell you why. First of all, Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream comes in a large gray plastic tube of a full 50ml. And that’s a lot of product for being an eye cream! This means that Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream will probably last you a year if you only use this product as an eye cream. The tube is hygienic and handy without having to put dirty fingers inside some jar. The eye cream petty much looks like a regular white moisturizer. The texture is medium thick and quite creamy, not too rich and not too light. A small amount of product is enough for treating the entire under eye area. But this product can also be used for spot treatment on wrinkles throughout the whole face. For example targeting the angry wrinkle between the eyebrows, or the smile lines by the mouth.

Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream is not too rich and not to light. And I really like the soft, moisturized supple feel on the skin after application.

The skin immediately feels soft and moisturized after application. Once on the skin, the product actually feels somehow richer and creamier than it looks at first glance. The skin is absolutely softened and nourished! This eye cream has good absorption. Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream is not too light and not too rich I feel. A medium thick airy moisturizing eye cream that works for most skin types in my opinion. I really like the feel after application as the skin immediately becomes supple, soft and resilient. I can’t say that Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream removed my wrinkles. But my skin is definitely nourished and deeply moisturized with improved elasticity using this eye cream. I would recommend Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream to anyone who wants a cheap and affordable Korean anti-age eye cream that is targeting wrinkles and dark under eye circles. From normal, combination and dry skin types, to mature skin and probably sensitive skin as well as the formula is very gentle.

There’s really only one thing I don’t like about the Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream, and that’s the scent. This eye cream doesn’t seem to have any added perfume, but the scent could still be much improved I feel. Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream pretty much smells like rubber and glue. It’s fortunately not a stinging scent and you can definitely live with it, but it doesn’t smell very good. Worth mentioning!

Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream is undeniably an incredibly cheap Korean anti-age eye cream for targeting wrinkles, lines and dark circles!

Plus because Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream is truly one of the most affordable Korean eye creams available considering the amount of product that you get for the cheap price of 6,50€. Plus for the handy hygienic tube packaging. Plus as this eye cream makes the skin soft, supple and moisturized. Plus for the medium thick formula with good absorption. Plus as this product contains a full 80% Galactomyces ferment filtrate targeting wrinkles and lines. Plus as this cream can also be used for spot treatment on wrinkles and lines throughout the whole face. Big minus for the smell that goes towards glue although it’s not too strong. Overall an incredibly cheap Korean anti-age eye cream for targeting wrinkles, which can also be used on the face. Not the very best eye cream I’ve ever used, but definitely an affordable option when you are on a budget. Absolutely approved and worth trying out in my opinion.

If it’s Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate you’re looking for then Purebess Galacto Myces 80 Eye Cream is a great choice as it contains a full 80%.

Ingredients
Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (80%), Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Canola Oil, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Beeswax, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Plantain Extract, Diospyros Kaki (Japanese Persimmon) Leaf Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Ulmus Campestris (Elm) Extract, Equisetum Giganteum (Southern Giant Horsetail) Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Carbomer, Arginine, Zanthoxylum Piperitum (Japanese Pepper) Fruit Extract, Pasque Flower, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Disodium EDTA.

Best from Tonymoly Magic Food Banana skin care line!

The Tonymoly Magic Food Banana line is a loved and very popular best-selling Korean skin care line both in Korea and in Europe.

Check out the Tonymoly Magic Food Banana line. OMG how cute are these banana products! The Tonymoly Magic Food Banana line is truly irresistible with the cute packaging and the whole concept I feel. And the sweet banana scent of these products is absolutely amazing, I love it. This line includes hand milk, lip balm, sleeping mask, peeling cream and cleanser. But are these products any good? Do they work? Are they worth buying or is this just a fun Korean thing? Today I’ll tell you more about 3 very popular and loved products from the Tonymoly Magic Food Banana line namely the sleeping pack, the hand milk and the lip balm!

All products from the Tonymoly Magic Food Banana line are rich, creamy and deeply nourishing. And the banana scent is absolutely delightful .

Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk

Review Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk hand cream from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk is the product I was least impressed with from the Tonymoly Banana line. Firstly, I wouldn’t even call this product “hand milk”, it’s rather a rich hand cream. The texture is thick, concentrated and very lubricating and creamy. Well, almost fatty actually. Secondly, the texture is kind of “grainy” and not at all smooth as I had expected. It’s unclear to me why the texture is like this? With that said, Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk has this wonderful scent of banana milkshake. The product is deeply and thoroughly moisturizing the hands, and the skin is immediately soft, resilient and supple. The product is dense and properly thick and rich, and a bit “fatty” actually. But at the same time, it has good absorption. The hands are left soft and moisturized without being greasy. Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk is best suitable for dry hands in need of something lubricating. Don’t expect a light hand milk as the name might suggest. I had wished for a smoother texture, but It’s still a very nice and fun product that absolutely works. Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk costs about 5€ with free shipping from Korea, and that’s very cheap and affordable for this product I feel.

The Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Sleeping pack is a wonderful sleeping mask in many ways. A favorite from the banana line. The product is wonderfully thick, rich and creamy. The scent of sweet bananas is absolutely amazing. Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Sleeping pack truly nourishes, softens and deeply moisturizes the skin while you sleep. Apply the product as the last step in your evening routine and let it work overnight. The skin is immediately moisturized, soft and supple. Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Sleeping pack is my absolute favorite product out of the Tonymoly Banana line. I really understand why this sleeping mask is a Korean bestseller and loved by many as the skin is properly and deeply nourished in a comforting way. Recommended for normal and dry skin types as this product is rich, thick and creamy. Use a smaller amount of product if you have normal or combination skin. Very nice for dry, really dry and flaky rough skin in need of nutrition! Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Sleeping pack costs about 8€ / 80ml with free shipping from Korea. And this product is well worth buying and trying in my opinion!

It’s hard to find a cuter lip balm than this, right! Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Lip Balm looks like a mini-banana with a strap in one end. Attach it to our purse, jacket or keys as a small “mascot” for easy access. Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Lip Balm is a dense, sturdy and fatty lip balm for treating really dry lips. The texture is similar to thick concentrated petroleum jelly or vaseline. The product is quite firm and white and a bit “transparent”. The feel on the lips is properly moisturizing and fatty. I like Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Lip Balm a lot. It’s a sturdy and lubricating lip balm that really helps dry lips. And the smooth squeezy tube provides perfect application without having to use your fingers. The sweet banana scent is absolutely amazing. Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Lip Balm costs about 6€ / 7gr with free shipping from Korea. Incredibly cheap and affordable in my opinion, and definitely worth buying this product!

I have tested and used the Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence. A Korean anti-age essence with a lifting effect.

I can’t believe that Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence only costs 13€ for a full 150ml of product! The bottle is made in solid glass and incredibly luxurious looking with fine golden details. The essence itself is lovely golden yellow with gold flakes and small bubbles inside.

Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence looks lovely golden yellow inside the bottle with a slightly viscous texture. In other words this product is not at all thin like water, but more serum-like I would say. The formula is light, fresh and moist with good absorption. The essence pretty much looks like a light translucent serum. Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence has this nice mild scent of skin care towards masculine. The product melts into the skin with a moist feel to it. The skin gets sticky for a minute but the stickiness goes away pretty quickly. The product is light and moist and definitely not heavy, oily or greasy. But at the same time this essence still have a nice hydrating effect. I also find that Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence relieves and soothes redness and irritation.

What I love the most about Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence is the formula. The product is hydrating enough to pretty much be used as a serum. And at the same time, the formula is light and moist with good absorption. I really love how gentle this essence feels on my skin. My take is that this product soothes, calms and relieves redness and irritation with a healing effect. I like to apply Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence in 2-3 layers for maximum hydration, especially in my evening routine. And especially if my skin feels irritated, red, dry, rough or flaky.

Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence is hydrating and nourishing as well as soothing, calming and healing the skin.

I would recommend Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence to most skin types actually. Ideal for mature skin, but also for normal, dry and combination skin types. Because the formula is very gentle, it should also work well for sensitive skin types. This product might also work for oilier skin as the essence is fresh and moist and not at all heavy on the skin.

A big plus for the luxurious packaging with fine gold details. Plus as the formula feels gentle and nice to the skin without irritating or causing redness. Plus for good absorption while the product still hydrates the skin well. Big plus for the price which is somewhere from 13€ with free shipping from Korea. The bottle is huge at a full 150ml and lasts a long time. I really have nothing negative to say about Farmstay Gold Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence. This is a hidden gem and a really cheap bargain in my opinion. Simply an incredibly affordable Korean essence and highly recommended by me!

And also much cheaper than buying the exact same products in regular European stores. On 1 occasion only in 15 years, my product went missing without being refunded, and the seller just disappeared. In some cases I got the wrong item or a broken item and I was always fully refunded plus keeping the item. Most Ebay purchases run smoothly with no interruption. However, there are some details to keep in mind to secure your purchases and make sure that your products are genuine goods. Are you curious to buy affordable products on Ebay? Do you feel a bit unsure about Ebay? Here’s my complete guide to safe K-beauty shopping on Ebay.

FULL REVIEW Rating 4.6 / 5

I have been using the G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel for a couple of months now, finally sharing my full review on this Korean Peeling Gel.

G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel is a peeling mask that dissolves dead skin cells and impurities without any sharp tearing or grains what so ever. A revitalizing exfoliating gel that is restoring the skin’s natural radiance and removing dead skin in a gentle matter. G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel contains grapefruit extract, AHA and BHA which helps cell renewal, hydrates the skin and has a soothing effect. The product works great both for the face and body, including rough skin on the elbows and knees.

G9SKIN Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel AHA BHA face mask from Korea Remove dead skin cells & sebum Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel comes in this giant plastic tube of a full 150ml. Very handy and hygienic, and pretty straight forward. Colorful prints with orange-pink grapefruits on the packaging. The peeling gel can be used on both the face and the entire body. For example on dry elbows or knees. The product itself is quite light and airy in its texture, looking much like a soft white glossy gel cream.

If you want a deep cleanse and exfoliation without any sharp grains or tearing, then G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel is a very good option.

Because G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel has this light texture, it makes the product very easy to apply, spread and massage into the skin smoothly. I usually use a generous amount of product, like the size of a 2-3 peas for my face. Apply G9Skin Grapefruit White Peeling Gel on dry skin and massage the skin in circular motions for a minute. Avoid the most sensitive skin in the eye and mouth area. Soon the face mask has fully dissolved dead skin and impurities. And small white grains and pieces of residue are starting to form. I’m not sure if it’s actually skin residue or something in the cream. I usually massage some extra where the skin needs it the most, for example around the nose area. Then rinse your face with lukewarm water.

Review G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel Exfoliating face mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel exfoliates and deeply cleanses the skin without tearing or sharp grains. After application, the skin feels soft, clean and super smooth to the touch. However, it might tighten on dry skin, so make sure to use hydrating products immediately after application.

It feels like skin care is more easily absorbed by the skin after using the G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel. That’s great!

From what I understand, the acids from grapefruit, AHA and BHA dissolves impurities and dead skin cells on the skin surface, without any sharp grains. But it’s unclear to me if the white bits and pieces that are formed are really dead skin cells, or something in the cream? Well, one thing is for sure, the skin feels fresh and deeply cleansed after application. And it definitely feels like the skin can absorb skin care much better after using this exfoliating mask. The peeling gel is gentle without tearing and the G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel leaves no oily film or residue on the skin after use.

Review G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel Exfoliating face mask from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

I would mainly recommend the G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel to those who want a deep cleanse and a gentle yet effective exfoliation without tearing or sharp grains. This peeling gel is ideal for normal, combination and oily skin types, enlarged pores, blackheads and “unclean” skin. Also good for mature and sensitive skin types that can’t take any sharp grains or tearing. G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel can also work well on slightly drier skin types. However, your skin may feel tight and dehydrated after application if you have dry skin. Therefore, make sure to moisturize properly after use.

Plus because the G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel comes in a large tube within an incredibly cheap price range. 10€ for this generous amount of product is incredibly affordable I must say. Plus as the skin feels exfoliated and deeply cleansed after application. And skin care is easier absorbed after using this face mask. Minus for the scent which is the worst thing about this product in my opinion. The scent could definitely use some improvements as it goes towards glue and rubber mixed with grapefruit. Overall, still an amazing and affordable gentle exfoliating peeling gel that really do work. I very much like the effect on the skin!

G9Skin Grapefruit Vita Peeling Gel really do work, but the scent could have been nicer in my opinion.

6 x Korean lip balms

Today I’ll tell you more about 6 Korean lip balms that I’m using and testing right now. They are from brands Tonymoly, Laneige, Etude House and It’s Skin!

If there’s anything that really sets Korean products apart from the rest of the world, then it’s their super cute and fun packaging. Today I’m going to share 6 different Korean lip sleeping masks and lip balms that I’m using and testing right now. Some are more emollient and deeply moisturizing, while others are super cheap and affordable if you are on a budget, perfect to throw in your purse. I mean wow, how cute are all of these!

Korean Lip Sleeping Masks

I’m curently using two products that are so called lip sleeping masks, Korean classic Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask which I have in “Berry” and Etude House Melting Chocolat Lip Sleeping mask. Lip sleeping masks are applied on the lips in the evening routine. Then let the lip mask work overnight. Lip sleeping masks are more intense than regular lip balms, providing deep care while you sleep.

First impression review Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Lip mask from Korea Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a cult classic by now, both in Korea and in Europe. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is the most expensive out of all these lip products but also the one that feels the most “premium”. It comes in a very nice packaging including a super cute little mini spatula. Costing about 11€ and still quite affordable in my opinion. This product is different from the other lip balms and feels more like a deeply nourishing lip mask, while the others are more similar to classic lip balms. I use Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask for the evening routine, but also during the day. I love how emollient and properly moisturized my lips feel and the product provides this lovely light pink shine to the lips. The lips look very healthy and youthful. The product is wonderfully creamy and soft inside the jar, and moisturizes the lips very well without feeling excessively oily or fatty. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in “Berry” has this sweet scent of red berries and it’s absolutely wonderful. Although the product costs 11€ it’s still very affordable as it lasts for at least 6 months. The jar is a full 20gr. Highly recommended by me and one of my absolute favorites!

Etude House Melting Chocolat Lip Sleeping Mask White Chocolate from Korea Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Etude House Melting Chocolat Lip Sleeping Mask comes in a nice sturdy glass jar and has the most delicious scent of white chocolate. Quite an oily and glossy texture in the jar but still in a solid form. The product pretty much looks like a classic lip balm. Somewhat more concentrated and sturdy than your every day lip balm I would say. The lips stay moisturized for a long time and I just love the amazing chocolate scent. I like to use Etude House Melting Chocolat Lip Sleeping Mask both at night and during the day. A premium quality lip balm if I were to describe this product. Etude House Melting Chocolat Lip Sleeping Mask lasts for several months and the product costs about 9€ / 15gr.

All of these Korean lip balms are pretty much translucent and made for moisturizing, nourishing and softening dry flaky lips.

Classic Korean Lip Balms

Moving on to It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm, Tonymoly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm and Tonymoly Magic Food Mini Lip Balm in Banana and Peach. All of these are more traditional classic lip balms that come in incredibly cute and fun packaging. How about lips in pink chrome, fruits and pastries. I love it, looks so jummy!

Review Tonymoly Magic Food Mini Lip Balm Banana fruit lip balm Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Tonymoly Magic Food Mini Lip Balm Banana is the fattest most lubricating lip balm out of all of these lip balms. And the little cute banana is a squeeze tube for handy and smooth application. The product is firm and concentrated. The lips feel super emollient, fatty and properly smeared after application, in a good way! I just love the sweet banana scent and the packaging is totally irresistible. 7gr costs 6€ and I would have liked a larger amount of product inside the tube, although the price is very cheap. This balm is definitely the fattest of them all and it will probably run out the fastest too. Not a high-end balm, but the Tonymoly Magic Food Mini Lip Balm Banana does the job and it’s easy to carry in your pocket. Plus for not having to use dirty fingers inside the product. Also, I love the fatty feeling on my lips.

Review Tonymoly Magic Food Mini Lip Balm Peach fruit lip balm peach from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe

Tonymoly Magic Food Mini Lip Balm Peach looks like the cutest little mini peach. The product comes in this plastic packaging with a screw cap, nothing weird there. Pretty solid firm texture inside the jar and the product becomes incredibly glossy and shiny as soon as you stick your finger into it. A slightly more firm and “thin” glossy lip balm that applies easily on the lips. It’s softening and lubricating providing nice moisturization. Some kind of mild sweet peachy scent. I like that this balm is pretty firm and solid inside the jar, as these types of balms can sometimes become too soft and messy. This one doesn’t. No high-end product, but it works nicely for everyday use, and it’s very cute indeed. I like to carry this one with me in my purse. If you want a handy and slightly more firm, “thin” and glossy lip balm that’s not as soft and messy, then this one works very well. Tonymoly Magic Food Mini Lip Balm Peach costs about 5€ and contains 7.2gr product which will last you a long time.

Review Tonymoly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm Blueberry Kiss kiss lip balm from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe

The Tonymoly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm clearly has the most startling packaging out of the bunch. How about these luscious lips in bright pink chrome. The packaging is completely irresistible and I love having this lip balm in my purse. Especially on Friday nights when I’m out and about with my girls. I have Tonymoly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm in Blueberry but I can’t really say that the scent is 100% blueberries. More of an artificial sweet and fruity scent towards blueberries and maybe cherries, although the scent is still OK. Tonymoly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm feels softer and more “bouncy” inside the jar than many other lip balms. A somewhat creamier fattier texture more similar to vaseline or solid rich honey. The product is wonderfully creamy and lubricating. I really like the feel on my lips at application as the lips are properly smeared and fatty, softened and super kissable. I don’t really know if there’s a difference between the Tonymoly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm and their Kiss Kiss lip balm in similar packaging? But 7.2gr of product costs from about 5€. Super affordable although you will go through a jar pretty quickly. I still like this one and the packaging is super cute indeed!

Review It's Skin Macaron Lip Balm 03 grape korean lip balm K-beauty Blog Europe

It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm comes in the cutest little macaron packaging and it’s available in several different kinds and colors. I have It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm in #3 grape which has the most wonderful sweet scent of grapes. I would probably say that It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm is the most moderate and traditional lip balm in the bunch. Just as one would expect a classic lip balm to be. It’s solid yet soft, creamy, a little bit fatty and just the right amount of lubricating. I like to carry It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm with me in my everyday purse and I use it as soon as my lips feel dry and flaky. The product lasts for pretty long and works well without a fuss. 9gr of product costs about 5€ and this one’s really nice in my opinion. If you love macarons then you’ll love this lip balm, it’s too cute!

FIRST IMPRESSION: The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask

I have tried and tested 2 different sheet masks called The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheet. Good quality Korean sheet masks in 2 separate steps. Here’s my review.

The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheet is a line of Korean sheet masks made in 2 separate steps. Step 1 cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates and prepares the skin for the actual sheet mask. Step 2 is the sheet mask itself, which includes extracts from plants, fruits and flowers. These sheet masks are made from a natural rayon fabric that is soaked in red camellia oil. This makes the actual material in these sheet masks soothing and hydrating the skin with perfect adherence throughout the treatment period. Both sheet masks are deeply hydrating the skin, and anti-age targeting wrinkles and lines.

The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheet come in nice premium packaging that looks a bit like thick paper. Hand painted prints on the packaging with beautiful lotus flowers. These sheet masks feel luxurious and inviting I think.

The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheets are made in 2 separate steps. At the top of each mask in the little pink / blue section there’s a “starter pad” that’s preparing and cleansing the skin before applying the actual sheet mask. The pad has one rough tearing side and one patterned soft side. Step 1 exfoliates and cleanses the skin to insure the best absorption of the essence in the actual sheet mask in step 2. The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheet feels luxurious and I really like that extra step with the starter pad.

The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheet is all about both exfoliation and deep hydration. A powerful 2-step mask that really works!

Step 1. Starter pad

Step 1 is a small two-sided pad that’s exfoliating, cleansing and preparing the skin before applying the actual sheet mask. One side is stiff and harsh like a gauze fabric, while the other side is patterned and much softer similar to cotton. Use the side that’s best suitable for your skin, or start with the gauze side and finish off with the soft cotton side. Incredibly fresh feeling when exfoliating the skin with the pad and it’s really tearing and deeply cleansing the skin. The pad is soaked in translucent light flowing essence with the most refreshing and clean scent on both sheet masks. The skin is actually hydrated while exfoliating. I like that the pad has 2 sides which makes you able to adjust the tear perfectly to suit your skin’s needs. After the starting pad, the skin is clean and wonderfully hydrated and refreshed with a dewy fresh glow.

The pads really cleanses the skin thoroughly and you do get rid of a lot of dirt and impurities indeed (see image above). The pad is not dehydrating or tightening the skin. The skin actually feels hydrated and refreshed with a healthy glow after exfoliation.

Step 2. Sheet mask

Review The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask sheet mask from Korea soothing brightening wrinkle treatment anti-age K-beauty Blog Europe

The sheet masks are made of this fiber rich natural rayon material that is very soft like baby cotton. These are good quality premium sheet masks in my opinion. Both masks are made of the exact same soft pink material. But the milky creamy essence in the pink wrinkle treatment mask makes that one feel a bit sturdier than the blue brightening mask which have a lighter gel-like essence. It’s actually the essence of these sheet masks that sets them apart the most. Both sheet masks have this pure clean green scent towards lotus. The lotus scent is more prominent in the pink wrinkle treatment sheet mask. The blue brightening mask has a more fresh scent with a hint of lemon. Both sheet masks hold moisture well for about 20 minutes. And both sheet masks are anti-age targeting wrinkles while having a smoothing effect to even out the complexion.

The skin becomes visibly smoother and more even looking using The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheets. I simply love both of these sheet masks!

The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Wrinkle Treatment

The pink mask, The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Wrinkle Treatment include ingredients like antioxidants, green tea, vitamin C and several different extracts from plants, fruits and flowers for example lavender, centella, chamomile, rosemary, eucalyptus, lime and lemon oil. The sheet mask is anti-age targeting wrinkles and has a lifting effect. The mask is also soothing and smoothing out the skin making the skin even, plump and fresh looking. The sheet mask is deeply moisturizing and nourishing the skin with its lovely creamy essence, but without feeling too thick or heavy.

The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Wrinkle Treatment is perfectly soaked in lovely thick white and creamy essence. Nice, clean and fresh scent towards plants and lotus. The material of the sheet mask is light pink and incredibly soft. The fit and the adherence is pure perfection! This sheet mask hugs every part of the skin without moving or slipping. Incredibly nice, deeply hydrating and a cooling effect on the skin. Although the essence is rich, thick and creamy, it still doesn’t feel oily or heavy on the skin. After treatment, the skin is sticky for a little while. The skin feels properly hydrated and moisturized after use, looking even, smooth and healthy without being particularly shiny or glossy. I can’t say that The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Wrinkle Treatment removed my wrinkles, but I definitely saw a lifting smoothing effect on my skin. You feel rested, healthy and refreshed after using this anti-wrinkle sheet mask. This sheet mask really does something to the skin. Very nice indeed, and I would recommended it mainly for normal, dry and mature skin types.

The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Soothing & Brightening

Review The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Soothing & Brightening sheet mask from Korea anti-age wrinkles K-beauty Blog Europe

The blue mask, The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Soothing & Brightening is a cooling and soothing sheet mask that calms irritated skin and makes the skin even, clear and fresh looking. This sheet mask is targeting pigmentation and dark under eye circles. It brightens the skin improving radiance and it’s also anti-age against wrinkles and lines. For clear, healthy and even looking skin. The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Soothing & Brightening includes lotus, fruit extracts and botanical ingredients such as green tea, lavender oil, lemon oil, orange oil and geranium flower oil. The essence is wonderfully refreshing and looks like a transparent gel.

The material of the sheet mask itself is also pink and feels a bit thinner than the wrinkle treatment mask. However, that’s only because the essence is lighter and more gel-like in this mask. Nice fit and perfect adherence. The essence looks like a translucent gel and the mask has this pure clean and fresh scent towards green plants with a hint of citrus. The Blue Mask, The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Soothing & Brightening feels incredibly cooling, soothing and refreshing. It’s deeply hydrating the skin and it’s very comfortable to wear. The skin is immediately de-stressed and relaxed. Sticky feeling when you tap in the remaining essence but the stickiness soon goes away. The skin feels hydrated, healthy, fresh and even looking with a healthy radiance, but without the skin being oily or excessively shiny. A very nice sheet mask that freshens up and smooths out the skin complexion. However, I was expecting a blue mask inside the packaging as the other mask was pink, a small rather unimportant detail. The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Soothing & Brightening is a really good sheet mask in my opinion and it’s highly recommended by me. Especially for those with irritated skin, redness, pigmentation, dark spots or dark circles. Ideal for normal, dry and combination skin types.

The fit and the adherence is pure perfection. The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Sheet line are good-quality Korean sheet masks and highly recommended by me!

A big plus for the premium feel of these sheet masks. Nice packaging and high quality masks. Plus as you get an extra starter pad that effectively prepares, exfoliates and cleanses the skin before application. The pad leaves the skin cleansed, dewy and hydrated. The fit and the adherence of both sheet masks is amazing as these masks hug every little part of the skin without slipping or moving. A big plus for the premium feel and effect on the skin. These are high quality sheet masks in my opinion. Plus for the mild refreshing green scents. A little minus because the paper packaging itself made it difficult to tear it open and remove the masks. One tip is to cut step 1 and step 2 apart before starting. Minus also for the price which is quite high around 5-7€ / pc. Other than that, top quality sheet masks in my opinion. The Pure Lotus Leaf Masks are great Korean sheet masks and highly recommended by me, perfect for pampering your skin with that extra something!

Product: The Pure Lotus Leaf Mask Wrinkle Treatment / Soothing & Brightening
Price: about 5-7€ / pc
Formula: Soft rayon fabric sheet masks containing a variety of botanical extracts and plant based ingredients from fruits and flowers such as lotus, lemon, lime, orange, lavender, centella, chamomile, geranium and rosemary.

Dermaheal, high-tech skin care with peptides made in Korea

Today I’m gonna tell you more about the luxury salon brand Dermaheal that specializes in advanced technology with peptides. The products are developed and manufactured in Korea.

Dermaheal is a brand under the Caregen concern where they do research on the skin’s stem cells. Dermaheal’s skin care is innovative and high-tech, and based on a variety of biomimetic peptides. Caregen / Dermaheal holds several patents on their research with peptides around the world. The products are developed and manufactured in Korea and contain several types of peptides that are strengthening and growing new skin from the inside. The Dermaheal Vitalizing line is an anti-age line that’s targeting wrinkles and lines using various biomimetic peptides. The products are deeply nourishing and helping the skin’s cell renewal. The products also increase the skin’s elasticity and resilience. The Dermaheal Anti-wrinkle line is targeting wrinkles and aged skin with the focus on growth. The products reduce and prevent wrinkles from forming by generating new skin cells and increasing skin elasticity. The key ingredients of this line are powerful patented peptides, collagen, elastin, fibronectin and hyaluronic acid.

Dermaheal Caregen korean skin care based on patented peptides K-Beauty Blog Europe

I have tried and tested both skin care, hair care and eyelash and brow products from Caregen and Dermaheal. Caregen specializes in peptides and also develops a range of products targeting hair loss and improving hair growth. Today however, I will focus mainly on skin care, which I think holds an incredibly high quality. Let’s take a closer look at the Dermaheal brand.

The Dermaheal Vitalizing line and the Dermaheal Anti-wrinkle line are very similar to each other regarding the deeply nourishing properties, the rich texture and the feel at application.

Dermaheal Anti-wrinkle line

Caregen Dermaheal Cosmeceutical anti-wrinkle cream & serum mature skin wrinkles Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

If you are looking for skin care targeting wrinkles then go for the Dermaheal Anti-wrinkle line. This is highly advanced skin care at a cellular level!

The Dermaheal Anti-wrinkle line is targeting mature skin, aged skin and signs of aging such as wrinkles and lines. The key ingredients of this line are several types of peptides and the so-called “growth factors” helping the growth of new cells. These products also contain collagen, elastin, fibronectin and hyaluronic acid. The products in the anti-wrinkle line are rich, creamy and deeply nourishing the skin. They are moisturizing, softening and improving the skin’s elasticity. I would therefore mainly recommend the Dermaheal Anti-wrinkle line to normal, dry and mature skin types 40+ and 50+. The packaging looks expensive and goes in red / dark brown colors with luxurious gold details.

Dermaheal Foaming Cleanser

Dermaheal Foaming Cleanser Facial cleansing Caregen Korean skin care from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe

Dermaheal Foaming Cleanser is a pretty much straight forward classic foam cleanser with no fuzz. The product comes in this large handy plastic tube of 150ml. Dermaheal Foaming Cleanser has a concentrated formula, and a small amount of product is enough for the entire face. The cleanser is creamy and white with that classic “soap pearl sheen” to it. The product has a nice soapy skin care scent. Add water to work up a creamy foam. Wash your face and rinse. The skin feels properly cleansed and fresh as the product effectively removes makeup and impurities without any problems. Dermaheal Foaming Cleanser is an uncomplicated foam cleanser that is suitable for most skin types I feel. The cleanser works great together with the other products from the Dermaheal Cosmeceutical Anti-wrinkle line. The foam cleanser was the least luxurious product in this line I feel. Much because of the plastic tube even though it’s functional.

Dermaheal Cosmeceutical Anti-wrinkle Serum

Caregen Dermaheal Cosmeceutical anti-wrinkle serum anti-age targeting wrinkles mature skin Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Dermaheal Cosmeceutical Anti-wrinkle Serum looks similar to a glossy whitish gel cream. Pretty firm texture that melts into the skin with ease. The serum has a fresh marine type skin care scent. The scent is nice and not too heavy. The skin is immediately hydrated and nourished with a sticky feel. The skin feels moisturized, supple and soft. Dermaheal Cosmeceutical Anti-wrinkle Serum is a great serum that really goes deep into the skin. The feel of Dermaheal Cosmeceutical Anti-wrinkle Serum is pure luxury.

Dermaheal Cosmeceutical Anti-wrinkle Cream is a sturdy, rich and deeply caring face cream that really nourishes the skin thoroughly. The product is white, creamy and pretty thick.

Dermaheal Cosmeceutical Anti-wrinkle Cream is primarily a night cream as the formula is very rich and creamy.

The face cream is white and properly creamy, thick and rich, but without being oily or fatty.

Fresh marine skin care scent that brings the brand Biotherm to mind. The face cream is absorbed well and the skin immediately feels deeply moisturized, soft, nourished and resilient. The skin may become slightly shiny after application depending on your skin type. I would mainly recommend Dermaheal Vitalizing Cream to normal skin, dry skin, mature skin and possibly combination skin as a night cream.

Dermaheal Exfoliating Scrub Cleanser

The Dermaheal Exfoliating Scrub Cleanser is like a facial scrub and a foam cleanser all in one. The product is white, thick and concentrated with lots of small grains in it. Fresh skin care scent towards detergents. The grains are quite small and sharp. Add less water if you want a lot of tearing. Add more water and foam the product in your hands before applying for daily cleansing and more of a gentle exfoliation. The skin is immediately cleansed and incredibly soft after application. I mainly use the Dermaheal Exfoliating Scrub Cleanser twice a week as a regular facial scrub. Apply the product in circular motions, rinse the face as usual. I like that the product feels concentrated with lots of small grains. Dermaheal Exfoliating Scrub Cleanser doesn’t feel excessively drying or stripping, which is positive.

Dermaheal Face filler sheet mask

Dermaheal sheet masks are absolutely amazing. Very luxurious and stylish packaging with nice purple, blue and gold prints on them. This is premium quality masks in my opinion. The sheet masks are sturdy and made of this quite thick material. But at the same time they are incredibly soft as the finest baby-cotton fabric. The fit is good and the adherence is absolutely perfect. These sheet masks feels embracing huging every part of the skin like a lovely soft cocoon. Mild luxurious skin care scent. Afterwards, the skin feels nourished, deeply moisturized, supple and soft with this lovely healthy looking glow. Dermaheal Face filler sheet mask is highly recommended for most skin types. Especially for normal, dry, combination and mature skin. Very nice high quality sheet masks in my opinion!

Dermaheal skin care products

Dermaheal Caregen high tech advanced Korean skin care with peptides anti-age wrinkle care K-Beauty Blog Europe

Dermaheal’s products feel very lux in general, and I immediately think of luxury brands like Estee Lauder. The packaging goes in turquoise and brown with silver / gold details and feels expensive and lux. I really love the pump inside the face creams, keeping away dirty fingers from the product. Very hygienic and innovative, really nice indeed! The foam cleanser comes in a handy plastic tube. The serums come in huge luxurious pump bottles and the sheet masks look incredibly stylish and hold the best quality. I would describe Dermaheal as a luxury salon brand for home use. The formula of the products in both lines are very similar to each other regarding the texture, scent and feel on the skin. Maybe the Anti-wrinkle line is a tiny bit richer. Dermaheal skin care is all about deeply nourishing products. Mainly suitable for normal, combination, dry and mature skin types. A creamy and rich anti-age skin care routine perfect for night time use. Nothing for oily skin as these products are way too rich, especially the face creams.

Dermaheal skin care holds a very high quality in my opinion. I’m thinking European high-end skin care made in Korea. The best out of two worlds. If you are curious about Korean skin care but want a proper deep care salon brand with anti-age effect that is well established in Europe, then Dermaheal skin care is absolutely perfect.

I love the luxurious packaging of the Dermaheal skin care products and the products are incredibly rich in their formula. Both the Dermaheal Vitalizing line and the Anti-wrinkle line hold a very high quality in my opinion. My only minus is actually the prices which are around 100€ / pc for the cream and the serum. Pricing is therefore more European oriented. Another thing, you can’t see how much product is left inside the bottles, but I’ll survive that. Other than that, really good quality skin care in my opinion. These skin care products are absolutely comparable to any expensive European high-end brand I feel. Good job Dermaheal. I’m actually impressed! For more info, please email Caregen at [email protected]  

Dermaheal skin care keeps a high quality in my opinion. The products reminds me of high-end brands like Estee Lauder!

FULL REWIEW Rating 4.5 / 5

I’ve tested & used the Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream. A truly unique Korean face cream and like nothing I have ever tried before. Here’s my review.

Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream comes in a lovely large jar made of brown glass. Screw cap in silver and nothing weird about this product which looks like any ordinary face cream at first glance. But this is in fact a very unique product of its kind, and probably not like any other face cream you’ve ever tried before. It might even take a while to understand and get used to Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream to be honest. The texture is truly unique and almost glue-like. And I don’t even know if I want to call this product a cream, it’s rather a liquid balm…

If you dream of smearing your skin with creamy smooth honey then Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is the perfect cream for you.

The first thing I noticed was the glue-like viscous texture inside the jar. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream looks similar to creamy caramel sauce at first glance. Light brown / beige color in the jar. Really thick but still viscous and the product might easily run out of the jar if you tilt it. The face cream has this lovely scent towards adult chocolate pralines, the ones with liqueur inside. The scent is very unique and really gives that premium feel to the product. However, the scent is quite strong, actually a bit too heavy for my taste. Nothing for those who dislike the scented skin care. But one thing is for sure, Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is unlike any other cream I’ve ever used before!

Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is definitely not an everyday cream for beginners. This face cream is very unique indeed, with its fluid texture and sticky feel.

The feeling on the skin at application is absolutely amazing and very special. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream melts into the skin like the sweetest honey balm. My dry skin just loves this cream and soaks it right up. I would say good absorption even though the skin becomes extremely sticky immediately after application. It takes a while before most of the stickiness has disappeared and the product has been 100% fully absorbed. Nothing that bothers me though, but maybe not a face cream for skin care newbies. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream feels like honey for your soul, and the skin is thoroughly moisturized absorbing this lovely nurturing balm. Incredibly satisfying for dry skin types I must say. I would mainly describe Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream as a liquid balm, rather than a cream.

Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream has an incredibly rich and deeply nourishing formula that looks like creamy caramel sauce inside the jar.

Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is primarily a night cream that is suitable for dry and very dry flaky skin as the formula is incredibly rich and moisturizing. It literally feels like smearing your face with liquid honey, for real! Extremely sticky feel, but lovely at the same time. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is also suitable for sensitive skin types as the formula is calming, gentle and embracing without irritating the skin. However, the product is quite heavily scented.

Review Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream face cream night cream from Korea anti-age wrinkles mature skin K-beauty Blog Europe

A big plus for this incredibly satisfying and unique face cream that really makes a difference for dry and really dry flaky skin. Plus for the wonderful silky balm feel on the skin and the unique scent of adult chocolates. Plus for the results as the skin immediately feels deeply nourished, moisturized, smooth, soft and supple. Plus for the gentle and calming formula. The skin becomes silky smooth as velvet using the Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream. Plus also for the price range which is around 20€ / 50ml. Very affordable for this quality in my opinion. Minus as the scent is a bit too strong and overwhelming, especially if you’re sensitive to scented skin care. Minus as the cream can easily get messy in the jar with its sticky glue-like texture. However, this product is also available in a handy tube with a pump. Overall an incredibly nice face cream that really makes a difference to dry, really dry and sensitive skin. The smooth embracing feel is absolutely wonderful! My skin simply loves Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream. However, I would have rated this face cream even higher if it wasn’t this heavily scented!

Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is primarily a deeply nourishing and softening night cream for dry skin, very dry flaky skin and sensitive skin types.
