News from Tonymoly, Huxley & Kocostar 2020

Today we’ll take a closer look at some new products from Tonymoly, Huxley and Kocostar. These are some well-chosen K-beauty treats from my last beauty event!

If you follow me on instagram here: @k_beauty_europe I shared this fun beauty event a few weeks ago. You may also have seen when I picked up the incredibly generous goodie bag from Nordic Beauty Import last week? @nordicbeautyimport organized this digital beauty event for the Nordic countries 2020. Very successful indeed. Nordic Beauty Import distributes brands like Tangle Teezer, Konjac Sponge, Beauty Blender, Tonymoly, Huxley and Kocostar to name a few. All different brands had like “digital rooms” where they presented their products while all visitors could chat and ask questions live. The main event was a long and very entertaining live show with a DJ, fun performances and shorter sections presenting the various brands. I had so much fun!

Tip! The Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon line

Today, I’m gonna tell you all about the Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon skin care line. A wonderfully creamy and rich anti-age line that is targeting dry skin types.

Today I’m gonna tell you all about the wonderfully creamy and rich Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon line. We’re talking deeply hydrating and moisturizing skin care products with a long-lasting effect. The Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon skin care line is focusing on deeply nourishing products that are protecting and strengthening the skin. The products are also anti-age targeting wrinkles and lines, as well as providing a more even skin tone. Among the ingredients we’ll find ginseng, mushrooms and pine to name a few. I highly recommend the Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon line to dry skin types and mature skin in need of deep care, especially at night. This skin care line is often translated as “Misa Yei Hyeon Jin-bon” or “Misa Yei Hyun” or “Misa Yehyun Jinbon”, but they are all the same products. Let’s take a closer look!

The products in the Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon line comes in luxurious packaging with incredibly nice and posh details. The creams themselves are silky smooth, rich and creamy with a warm beige tone to them. Despite the expensive feel, this is an unexpectedly affordable and cheap Korean skin care line. Both the face cream and the eye cream cost about 15€ / pc and that’s a really good price for this kind of quality I think. However, the products are scented and smell like grandma mixed with skin care and soap. A mild nice scent, but if you are sensitive to scented skin care, then keep this in mind. I have tested both the face cream and the eye cream and I really like these products, especially for the winter season. Read more about each cream below.

The Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon line offers good quality and luxurious skin care within a cheap price range. This is exactly what Korean skin care is all about, at least for me!

Review Missha Ye Hyeon Jinbon Cream nourishing face cream dry mature skin Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon Cream has this wonderfully silky smooth, creamy and rich formula that glides on the skin like a dream. A deeply nourishing and moisturizing facial cream with a shea butter feel to it. The skin feels properly moisturized and embraced by this cream, and the skin is left incredibly smooth, supple and soft. This is a deep care type face cream towards the thicker and richer end. Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon Cream is highly recommended for dry skin types, and this product is mainly a night cream in my opinion. Also good for mature skin targeting wrinkles and lines and for treating uneven skin. The face cream is a full 50ml and costs about 15€.

The eye cream works great together with the face cream in my opinion. Missha Misa Yehyun Jinbon Eye Cream has a smooth and creamy formula and a little goes a long way. A small amount of product is enough for the whole area around the eyes. I like to use the eye cream night and day, and also under makeup. Medium-thick texture towards the slightly creamier end, but not at all too heavy or oily on the sensitive skin around the eye area. Read my full review of the eye cream here. Good absorption. The eye cream is actually suitable for most skin types in my opinion. From normal to dry skin, combination skin and mature skin. The jar is also generous at a full 30ml and costs about 15€.

FULL REVIEW: Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream

After 4+ months of use

Product: Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream.
Type of product: Oil-based cleansing cream.
Price: 230ml / 15€.
Texture: Loose viscous smooth cream.
Color: Beige.
Scent: Sweet scent of lemon & sugar sponge cake.
Skin type: All, but especially dry skin.
How to use: Apply the cleansing cream on dry skin in circular motions. Dissolve makeup and impurities. Add a little water and massage some more so that the product emulsifies. Rinse your face thoroughly.
Formula: The product includes the key ingredient organic black sugar from Brazil. The product also contains refined rice wine, botanicals and it’s enriched with minerals and vitamins that hydrates and nourishes the skin.
Good: Wonderful sweet scent. The cream dissolves impurities and makeup without stinging the eyes or causing irritation. Also removes waterproof makeup. Lovely creamy formula. Cheap price and the jar is huge. You get a great amount of product for your money.
Bad: The cream is loose and viscous so the jar gets messy. You must stick your fingers directly inside the jar which is not hygienic at all. The product cleanses the skin nicely but it doesn’t completely remove heavy eye-makeup on its own. The product requires a second foaming cleanser as it leaves an oily film on the skin after use.
Results on the skin: The skin becomes clean without being stripped, dry or tight. But the product leaves an oily film on the skin.
Buy again: No.

FULL REVIEW Rating 2.7 / 5

I had high hopes for the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream, but this product is messy and annoying to use! Here’s my review.

Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream comes in a large and generous jar of a full 230ml! The jar is made of brown plastic with a black screw cap, nothing strange there. I like the design and the feel of the whole Skinfood Black Sugar line. However, I was expecting more from the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream. For starters, I thought the product would be much firmer and more similar to a stiff cleansing balm or something. This product is instead loose like a viscous smooth cream that is flowing around inside the jar. I would definitely have preferred a different type of packaging for such a loose “liquid” product, perhaps a handy pump bottle. The packaging eventually becomes very messy as you have to stick your fingers inside the jar all the time. And the packaging is not hygienic whatsoever! Let’s take a closer look at Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream.

Review Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream dry skin cleanser from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe
Review Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream dry skin cleanser from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe


Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream is a viscous smooth cleansing cream that is equivalent to an oil-based cleanser. Use the product as the first step in your cleansing routine. Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream looks like delicious loose and airy caramel fudge inside the jar and the product actually looks pretty jummy. Unexpectedly loose texture at first glance. I had expected a firmer cleansing balm as the product comes in such a huge open jar. But Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream flows around so keep the jar straight or the product will fall out. The cleansing cream has this wonderful sweet scent towards lemon sponge cake, just like the other products from the Skinfood Black Sugar line. I just love the scent of this skin care line altogether!

Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream dissolves makeup and impurities without itching or stinging the eyes and no irritating the skin. However, it doesn’t quite get rid of heavy makeup on its own.

So how do you use Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream? Well, you pretty much stick your fingers straight into the jar and try to scoop up the right amount of product. Not the easiest task, and it gets quite messy in the long run. It feels like sticking your fingers into fluffy lightly whipped cream actually. Because the jar is so large and generous at a full 230ml, I have a tendency to overdose and use quite a lot of product. Apply Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream directly on dry skin to dissolve makeup and impurities. Massage the skin in circular motions until all makeup has dissolved. Add a little water and massage further to let the product emulsify and turn white. Then rinse your face thoroughly. I like cleansing creams in general because they cleanse the skin in a gentle matter without drying, stripping out or tightening. This is also the case with Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream. But, I’m still not completely sold on this Korean cleanser unfortunately, there is a lot to be improved I feel.

Review Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream dry skin cleanser from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe

Unfortunately, I have to say that I was a little disappointed with Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream. I really wanted to love this cleanser and my expectations were high. Both the Korean classic Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off and the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil from the same line are included in my skin care favorites. But the cleansing cream falls a bit flat unfortunately. Well yes, Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream absolutely dissolves makeup in a desirable way, even waterproof makeup actually. And the product really has the most wonderful scent. But I have big issues with the texture and the packaging. It’s incredibly unhygienic and annoying to stick your fingers straight into the jar all the time. Some may like that, but for me it gets messy due to the loose viscous formula. Also, if you use heavy makeup including layers of mascara and eyeliner in your waterline, there will be a lot of residue left under the eyes. You do need to go in with the cleansing cream on a cotton pad to remove heavy eye makeup. And the product unfortunately leaves a greasy oily film on the skin after use, even after rinsing I feel. A foam cleanser is therefore necessary as the second step.

Because you have to stick your fingers inside the jar, Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream is both unhygienic, messy and annoying to use.

No, I would actually not recommend the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream to anyone really. Instead, go for the classic cleansing oil from the same line, it’s so much better. The cleansing cream would have been nicer and easier to use with a pump bottle instead! With the jar, it gets messy and greasy everywhere. The product absolutely works OK as a cleanser, but it’s cumbersome and annoying to use. And a foam cleanser is required afterwards to get rid of the oily feel that the cream leaves behind. In addition, the cleansing cream doesn’t really remove all heavy eye makeup which tends to remain under the eyes.

Plus because Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream dissolves makeup and impurities without itching or stinging the eyes nor irritating the skin. It also removes waterproof makeup. Plus because the product doesn’t strip, dry out or tighten the skin after cleansing. Plus for the wonderful sweet scent of sugar sponge cake and lemon. Plus for the incredibly generous jar of a full 230ml. Plus for the price which is around 15€ with free shipping from Korea. Minus for the packaging which is unhygienic, messy and cumbersome. Minus because the skin still feels oily after cleansing and the product doesn’t completely remove heavy eye-makeup on its own. Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream is barely approved by me. It falls a bit flat in my opinion, too bad as I had high hopes for this cleansing cream!

Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Cream has a wonderful sweet scent, but unfortunately it’s not a new favorite for me. This product is not recommended!

K-beauty special: 3 empties and 3 newbies!

Today I’ll tell you more about 6 Korean products from my skin care routine, 3 empties and 3 new newbies. Best & worst!

It’s with mixed feelings that I’ve just ended 3 K-beauty products and introduced 3 new ones in my Korean skin care routine. Some of these products are spot on while others makes me wonder. Today I’ll tell you more about my 3 latest K-beauty empties and my 3 newest newbies! We’re talking K-beauty from Korean brands like iUNIK, Huxley, Neogen and Nature Republic. Have you tried any of these before?

Korean skin care empties and newbies from Huxley Neogen Nature Republic iUNIK K-beauty Blog Europe

Let’s take a closer look at these Korean skin care products. Three empties and three newbies from my personal Korean skincare routine at this moment.

Empty: Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser
Newby: Neogen Dermalogy Real Fresh Foam Blueberry

Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser Neogen Dermalogy Real Fresh Foam Blueberry Korean Skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Empty: I really like this foam cleanser! Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser is the green one in the back of the image. Large handy tube, and this is such an incredibly cheap Korean foam cleanser costing like 6.50€ / 150ml! The product is gentle with no irritation. It foams easily and doesn’t strip or dry out the skin. Sweet mild aloe vera scent that is not too strong. An effective yet gentle foaming cleanser that is suitable for sensitive skin types as well. Highly recommended by me for just about any skin type. A really nice one, read my full review here!

Newbie: Neogen Dermalogy Real Fresh Foam Blueberry in the front of the image comes in an innovative pump bottle that foams the product automatically with one push. Super handy and you get just the right amount of foam in 1 pump. The product is supposed to be hydrating and and targeting pores. The foam is creamy and cleanses the skin effectively. The scent is basically like soap with a hint of blueberries. I’m not very impressed at a first test. I don’t really like the smell of soap and I feel like this bottle would run out faster than a traditional creamy foam cleanser. I had high expectations for the Neogen Dermalogy Real Fresh Foam Blueberry, but no wow-feeling yet unfortunately. The product is available in several different kinds including blueberries, green tea, cereal / rice and cranberry.

Huxley Extract It Toner iUNIK Rose Galactomyces Essential Toner Toner from Korea K-beauty Blog Europe

Empty: Huxley Secret Of Sahara Extract It Toner on the left in the image balances PH and hydrates the skin with a full 90% natural ingredients including Sahara Cactus extract. I really like this toner a lot, and dislike it at the same time! The formula is nice and my skin responses well to this product. But the strong floral scent towards jasmine and lilies is just too much for my personal taste. It almost feels like using perfume directly on your face. I was so close to giving away this toner due to the scent, but ended up using the whole bottle any way. And I’m glad I finally did. Apparently, this toner is also suitable for sensitive skin types, but I would only recommend it if you really like scented skin care. Huxley Extract It Toner is good, but the scent is very strong. Read my full review on the Huxley brand and the toner here.

Newbie: iUNIK Rose Galactomyces Essential Toner is a balancing Korean toner. The key ingredient is a full 70% damask rose water and 10% galactomyces. The product has a calming effect and balances the skin. It’s also hydrating, has an anti-aging effect targeting wrinkles and enlarged pores. Use the iUNIK Rose Galactomyces Essential Toner for cleansing purposes on a cotton pad right after your regular foam cleanser. Or pat the product into the skin using your hands for a hydrating effect. The texture of the toner feels just like water and the skin becomes fresh and hydrated after application. No stickiness at all. And no alcohol that tightens or dries out the skin. Good absorption. I like the iUnik toner even though this is a bit too strongly scented in my opinion. But if you do love rose water or rose scents, then this toner is absolutely perfect. Suitable for virtually any skin type from normal to dry skin, mature skin, combination skin and oily skin.

Empty: Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is the turquoise one on the left in the image. This Korean facial cream is really the perfect one for combination skin. It’s refreshing and has a lighter gel cream texture, but the product is still surprisingly hydrating and moisturizing. The key ingredients are Sapporo water and seaweed extract. The cream also contains hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and extracts from plants. The formula revitalizes, hydrates and balances the skin’s oils and moisture levels. Nice fresh sporty marine skin care scent. The amount of product can easily be adapted to skin type and needs. I have mature dry skin, and I’ve used this face cream all summer day and night without any problems. I simply love the Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream and I highly recommend this product, especially for combination skin! Read my full review of the cream here.

Newbie: Huxley More Than Moist Cream is a sturdy, creamy and incredibly concentrated and rich Korean face cream. Deeply nourishing and moisturizing with a high contents of Prickly Pear Seed Oil / Sahara Cactus. Anti-age targeting wrinkles and lines. The texture is really thick and firm inside the jar and looks similar to white shea butter. The feeling on the skin is super moisturizing and lubricating as this is mainly a face cream for dry skin types. The skin becomes deeply moisturized, soft and supple. Lovely floral scent towards lilies and lilacs. Huxley More Than Moist Cream is very similar to their Anti-gravity cream which I really love too. However, “Anti-gravity Cream” might be a slight bit heavier and “fatter” in the formula, while “More Than Moist” is a hint lighter but still has that rich and “oily” shea butter feel to it. Huxley’s creams awesome in my opinion, and I just love More Than Moist Cream which is absolutely perfect especially for dry and very dry skin types. Or as a properly rich, heavy and moisturizing night cream for normal, dry or mature skin types during the winter season. Huxley’s facial cream is highly recommended by me!

FULL REVIEW Rating 4.8 / 5

I have used a whole jar of the Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream. Here is my review.

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is a Korean gel cream that is especially targeting combination skin. If your skin have different needs in different zones of the face, this is the cream for you. Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is rich in minerals and contains marine extracts such as Sapporo Water and seaweed. The face cream hydrates the skin effectively and at the same time it balances oils and moisture levels in the skin. The gel cream also forms a moisture barrier that protects the skin from external stress. Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is deeply hydrating and making the skin supple and soft with a natural glow and radiance.

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream comes in this incredibly nice looking and inviting turquoise jar with a fancy “drop” shape in the lid. The jar is made of glass and feels solid and lux despite the cheap price. You also get a generous amount of product for the money as the jar is a full 80ml. WOW! The name of the face cream “Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream” made me expect that the cream would be thinner, lighter and more like a wet gel. But this cream is actually quite “sturdy” and richer and creamier than expected, even though it is still quite light. Let’s take a closer look.

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is a so-called gel cream, ie just in between a gel and a face cream. Inside the jar, the cream looks wonderfully glossy with a light turquoise color to it. You do feel the urge to try it right away. The formula is airy and moist yet still creamy and thick in some weird way. Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is a gel cream that is easy to apply and spread onto the skin. A small amount of product goes a long way. A more generous layer gives a “thick”, rich and creamy feeling on the skin. This face cream can easily be adapted to your needs and skin type by the thickness it’s applied in. However, Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is specially targeting combination skin. The face cream is nicely absorbed by the skin, and a little amount of product is enough for the entire face, especially if you have an oily skin type.

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is not too light, and not too heavy. Just the right “in between” formula for every day use.

I liked Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream pretty much from the first use. The gel cream is super fresh and provides this wonderfully cooling feeling on the skin at application. The face cream has good absorption and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy at all. Just hydrating and refreshing. The skin feels moisturized and immediately becomes soft and supple after application. If you have oily skin, then use a tiny bit of product. A generous amount works well even for drier skin types as the product becomes creamy and almost “thick” on the skin. Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream can easily be adapted to skin type or the different needs and zones of the face I think. I myself have dry mature skin, and I used the Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream both as a day cream and a night cream during the summer months. And it worked out just fine. My skin was happy, supple and soft. When using a generous amount of product, the cream feels more solid, creamier and “thicker” on the skin than expected. You can also add a sleeping mask if needed in the night routine.

I would mainly recommend Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream for combination skin. The face cream would also work very well for normal skin that wants the perfect amount of moisture. This cream is basically a great moisturizer between the age of 20-30 I would say. The product hydrates the skin well and you only need a small amount. Use a generous layer on dry areas. A thin layer is more than enough for oily skin types. The face cream is suitable for both day and night and works well under makeup as well. The skin doesn’t become shiny or sticky as the cream is absorbed quickly by the skin in a few minutes. We’re talking simple and fast hydration with no fuzz!

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream hydrates the skin well with it’s fresh and moist formula. Leaving the skin soft and supple!

Plus because Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is a really nice Korean face cream that is suitable for several different skin types. It’s not too heavy, and not too light. Plus for the nice and luxurious glass jar, very pretty details indeed. Plus because this gel cream truly hydrates and moisturizes the skin well even though the formula is still light & moist. The skin becomes soft and supple. Plus for the cheap price of 12€ as you get a full 80ml of product for your money. Plus for the cooling, refreshing feeling on the skin and good absorption. Plus because the cream can be used day and night, and also under makeup. Plus for a nice refreshing scent. I really like Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream a lot. Maybe the cream contains a bit too much silicones, other than that this is top quality in my opinion. Definitely worth 12€ with free shipping from Korea. Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is highly recommended by me when you want that perfectly hydrating facial cream that is neither too thin nor too thick. And it’s ideal for combination skin types!

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is both hydrating, cooling and refreshing the skin. And it can be used day and night.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Sioris skin care line

I have tested 4 products from Korean brand Sioris. Gentle skin care with no additives or harmful chemicals. Perfect for sensitive skin types. Here’s my review.

Review Sioris skin care line no additives sensitive skin redness rosacea irritated dry skin Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Sioris truly feels like a gentle skin care brand as their products includes carefully selected ingredients and no unnecessary additives or harmful ingredients. I really like the concept of pure and natural skin care. Minimalist nice looking white / beige packaging, and easy to use hygienic pump bottles. I would especially recommend the brand Sioris for sensitive skin types, troubled skin, irritated skin, rosacea and redness. I really like the formula of these products and the fact that there’s no added perfume, no dyes, no parabens or harmful chemicals. In addition, these products are cruelty free. Sioris is all about gentle and natural skin care indeed. I’ve tested a mini sample kit including the milk cleanser, the cleansing gel, the day cream and the night cream. Read more about each product below.

Sioris skin care line is perfectly suitable for sensitive skin types in need of natural skin care with no additives or harmful chemicals.

Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser

Review Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser Cleansing milk sensitive skin Rosacea redness Korean skin Care K-beauty Blog Europe

Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser has a low PH and contains 100% natural ingredients, of which 61% is organic. This cleansing milk includes organic green plum water, citric water, macadamia seed oil, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Broccoli Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract and Licorice Extract. The cleansing milk is rich in vitamins B, C and Calcium. Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser cleanses the skin without stripping och drying, and the product can be used on dry or damp skin. The full size product comes in a handy pump bottle.

Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser is a creamy cleansing milk that looks like a white lotion. A milky rich yet not too heavy formula that is easy to apply on the skin. I really like the creamy moisturizing feeling on the skin at application. Mild and “unscented” type scent towards wood mixed with detergent. No irritation. If you use a lot of makeup then you do need to use a generous amount of product to dissolve everything. I usually apply this cleanser on dry skin and massage until all impurities are dissolved. Then I add water and massage some more. Then I rinse my face thoroughly. If you use heavy layered makeup, then add an oil cleanser before, or a foam cleanser after using Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser. Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser is an ideal cleanser for dry and sensitive skin types, or red irritated skin if you use moderate amounts of makeup. This cleanser feels moisturizing and so incredibly gentle to the skin. No dryness, tightening or irritation during or after use. The skin just feels cleansed and cared for. I really like the Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser and this was my personal favorite from the Sioris brand. I would give the cleansing milk a rating of 4.7/5!

Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel

Review Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel foam cleanser  sensitive skin redness rosacea Korean skin care K-beauty blog Europe

Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel is a revitalizing foam cleanser with a gentle formula that is based on fresh organic ingredients from plants and greens. This cleansing gel contains ingredients like wood tuynia cordata extract, Jeju citrus peel extract and Black Willow bark extract. Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel soothes the skin and balances sebum, gently exfoliating, brightening and keeping the skin hydrated. This product helps to maintain a good balance of moisture and oil in the skin while cleansing your skin without drying out or irritating the skin. The full size product comes in a handy pump bottle.

Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel is a foam cleanser that looks like a translucent yellowish light-flowing gel. Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel has this clean and refreshing scent towards detergents and cleaning supplies. The formula feels gentle on the skin without irritating or causing redness. However, the scent is quite strong in my opinion. Add some water and foam the product before applying it to your face. The product doesn’t foam as easily as I would like to unfortunately. If you use a lot of heavy lmakeup, then Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel probably won’t remove everything on its own. In that case, add a cleansing oil or use this product after using the Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser to achieve a more thorough cleansing. If you have sensitive skin though, and use none or a minimal amount of makeup, then Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel will probably work just fine. For my needs, I had wished for this product to have a more firm and dense formula, and to foam easier. The texture is way too loose and fluid for my taste, and the scent is a bit too strong as well. Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel was the product I liked the least from the Sioris skin care line. However, the cleansing gel still have a gentle and non-irritating formula, and it does work as long as you don’t wear heavy layered makeup. I would rate the Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel at 3.5/5!

Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream

Review Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream moisturizer sensitive skin redness rosacea irritated skin Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

The face cream Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream is ideal for sensitive and hyper-sensitive skin types, dry skin, redness and irritated skin. The day cream includes ingredients like Omija fruit, Jeju calendula extract, white willow bark extract, squalane and ceramides. Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream is hydrating, nourishing and soothing the skin. The cream is also moisturizing, repairing and healing the skin, protecting the skin’s natural barrier. Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream is rich in amino acids and vitamins. The full size product comes in a handy pump bottle.

Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream has this “medium” classic face cream texture that is neither too thick nor too light. The product is bright white and easy to spread across the face. The face cream looks a bit moist, smooth and somewhat “glossy”. Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream is surprisingly moisturizing, nourishing and softening despite not having a thick or heavy texture. You know that feel after applying a sun milk! Good absorption. Mild natural slightly woody scent towards plants. The cream basically smells like unscented skin care. The skin is instantly moisturized, resilient, soft and supple after application. Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream is mainly suitable for normal to dry skin types, but also good for mature and combination skin towards the dry end. If you like light day creams though, then this one might be too heavy for your skin! Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream is a nice moisturizing day cream with good absorption that is both gentle and pleasant to use. A really good day cream for sensitive and dry skin types in my opinion! I would rate Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream at 4.5/5!

Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream

Review Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream sensitive skin rosacea redness Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream contains freshly harvested ingredients such as 64% organic fruit water (green plum, yuja), Tamanu Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Green Tea Extract and Centella Asiatica. Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream is a creamy and nutritious night cream full of antioxidants and minerals. The night cream is deeply nourishing as well as soothing and calming the skin. Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream is especially suitable for dry and sensitive skin types, hyper-sensitive skin, redness and irritated skin. The full size product comes in a handy pump bottle.

The night cream has a slightly richer, creamier and thicker texture than the day cream. Still, it’s not at all dense or heavy. The product is just in between, not to light and not too thick. A classic “medium” face cream I would say. The skin is hydrated, moisturized and softened. The product looks like a classic vanilla-white face cream that is moist, smooth and airy but at the same time it’s creamy in some way as well. Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream makes the skin soft and moisturized without feeling heavy. The night cream has this distinct scent towards damp wood from Tamanu oil, which may not suit everyone. No artificial perfume added. The night cream has good absorption and makes the skin soft, resilient and supple. Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream can be used both day and night if you have normal to dry skin in my opinion. The night cream is basically suitable for most skin types from normal, dry and combination skin to mature skin. The formula is also incredibly gentle and good for irritated skin, troubled skin, sensitive and super sensitive skin as well. I really like the “medium” feel of this night cream even though the woody scent is very distinct. The perfect softening night cream or face cream for sensitive skin types that is not too light and not too heavy. I would rate Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream at 4.5/5!

Sioris offers pure and natural skin care products that you can really rely on. Fresh ingredients and no unnecessary or harmful additives.

Review Sioris skin care line no additives sensitive skin redness rosacea irritated dry skin Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

I would mainly recommend Sioris skin care line for sensitive skin types, irritated skin, troubled skin and for those suffering from rosacea and redness. These products are perfect for normal and dry skin types, as well as combination skin I would say. I would recommend the Sioris cleansing products for those who use none or a minimal amount of makeup. The cleansing milk and the cleansing gel work well together as “double cleansing”. But if you use a lot of heavy makeup then you have to apply a generous amount of product to remove everything. I would prefer an additional cleansing oil to remove multiple layers of makeup instead.

A big plus for the pure formula of Sioris skin care line as these products contain natural and organic ingredients, and they are free from unnecessary and harmful additives and chemicals. Plus, because Sioris skin care line is suitable even for the most sensitive skin types and rosacea. These products do not irritate the skin and they don’t cause redness. Plus because the products are cruelty-free as well. Minus as the cleansing products don’t really remove all of the makeup on their own. I had wished that Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel would foam easier, it’s just too runny and loose in the texture. My favorite product from Sioris is above all the cleansing milk Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser. I also liked the face creams which are deeply moisturizing and softening the skin without being too thick or heavy.

The day cream is surprisingly moisturizing and softening even though it’s not particularly thick or heavy.

Product: Sioris Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser, Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel, Sioris You Look So Young Night Cream & Sioris Stay With Me Day Cream.
Price: 15-30€ / pc
Formula: Gentle non-irritating formula with natural and organic ingredients. No parabens, additives, dyes, perfumes or harmful chemicals. Cruelty-free.
Skin type: Sensitive & hyper sensitive skin. Irritated skin, rosacea and redness. Dry skin types.

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula GF Mask Sheet
The first sheet mask in the bunch was the It’s Skin Power 10 Formula GF Mask Sheet. A hydrating sheet mask targeting dry and dehydrated skin. The sheet mask is sturdy and thick and made of this incredibly soft cotton-like material. The essence looks like transparent gel and is slippery and a somewhat “slimy” on top of the soft material. OK fit and awesome adherence as the sheet mask really hugs every small part of the skin like a soft cocoon. Clean and refreshing scent similar to detergent. If you like thick solid sheet masks then this one is really for you! The skin is left moisturized and fresh but without being sticky or oily. Recommended for most skin types.

Pretty thin sheet mask made of standard material that is barely visible on the skin. Absolutely OK fit and adherence. The sheet mask smells like lemon mixed with soap and rubber.

Too Cool For School Coconut Ceramide Mask
This sheet mask is one of my personal favorites since long, and an absolute must for coconut lovers! The sheet mask itself is incredibly thin and it’s attached to a plastic support mask.

A’pieu Soft Foot 30 Minute Peeling Socks sheet mask for feet Korean skin care K-beauty Blog Europe

A’pieu Soft Foot 30 Minute Peeling Socks
The last mask in the bunch is the A’pieu Soft Foot 30 Minute Peeling Socks. Not really a regular sheet mask but a foot peeling mask. The 2 foot masks are attached together looking like a giant butterfly with a liquid essence inside. When you cut apart the masks they magically turns into a pair of plastic socks. Pull them over your feet and seal with the tape strip. The essence smells very much like alcohol and I had really wished for a nicer scent. It pretty much feels like walking around with a couple of alcohol-filled plastic bags on your feet. And it’s quite slippery, so I would recommend sitting down during the treatment time. Let A’pieu Soft Foot 30 Minute Peeling Socks work for 30 minutes and then rinse your feet with fresh water. Immediately after treatment, the feet are somewhat cleaner, but no huge difference. However, after 4-5 days the feet literally starts to peel and shed skin. Rough areas and old skin is falling off and the feet are left baby soft and smooth. The treatment is very brutal and a shock the first time you try it. But the mask provides guaranteed results for sure! However, this is no mask for sensitive skin, redness or irritated skin types.

Huge delivery from JOLSE, €400 of Korean skin care !

Do you remember my huge mega order from Jolse a couple of weeks ago? Well, the package has arrived. Check out which Korean products I bought for €400!

I must say that JOLSE never fails but has this incredibly nice K-beauty range, cheap prices, fast delivery and they are always generous with free samples with every order. This package which I ordered along with my friends was very large and very heavy. About 7-8kg if not more. But the shipping was still no more than about €20. In addition, the package was shipped with DHL express with no customs fees, and delivered directly to my doorstep. Very handy and I believe the express shipping is standard with JOLSE during the Corona crisis, not sure! Unfortunately, I wasn’t home at the time of delivery, but I was able to pick up my parcel at my local post service the very same evening. I ordered these products on the 29th of july, and I received the products on the 14th of august. The shipping was 2 weeks and 2 days from ordering at JOLSE Korea to my doorstep in Sweden. That’s good service if you ask me! I have been shopping a lot from JOLSE over the past years, both from their Ebay account iamlove-shop and from their official website jolse.com

If you follow me on Instagram you might have already seen a sneak peek of this mega package from Jolse. Check out my crazy behind the scenes photos, and the finished unboxing video below. And yes, I am extremely organized when filming -not. How do you like my very professional studio hahaha?

And yes, I was breaking a sweat when unboxing this huge mega package from JOLSE Korea. I have to say that there was an unnecessary amount of bubble wrap around almost every product considering the environment. However, all products arrived without a single scratch. And there were a very large number of free samples with this order, more the ever before actually…

All the free samples from this order in the image above.

I ordered many of the same products. For example, 5 tubes of the Tonymoly Shea Butter Chok Chok Face & Body Cream, 4 bottles of Farmstay Escargot Noblesse Intensive Lifting Essence and 3 tubes of Missha Super Aqua Ultra Hyaluron Cleansing Foam. I feel the need to stock up as I don’t order as often. In addition, me and several of my friends have already found some must have K-beauty favorites, for example the 3 products mentioned above. Tip!

Unfortunately, 2 of the products I ordered were out of stock at JOLSE. It was the Tonymoly Delight Circle Lens Mascara and A’pieu Coffee Lip Scrub Amelipcano. JOLSE immediately wrote a message to inform me and refunded the money for the 2 products directly to my Paypal account, without me having to do anything myself.

Do you usually buy K-beauty online directly from Korea or do you prefer European stores such as Sephora? Please share in the comments below.

Mega order from JOLSE. 400€ worth of K-beauty !

How are you doing guys? Do you just like me, wonder from where to order K-beauty cheapest nowadays, during the corona crisis?

Many long months have passed since the Corona virus broke out, and I haven’t ordered Korean skin care from Korea since the fall of 2019! Guess if mine and my friends’ skin care shelves has been more or less empty for a while now. Everyone is pretty much desperate for K-beauty at this point. We need lots of facial creams, serums, masks and cleansers. After some research on Ebay, I’ve noticed that almost all of my favorite Korean sellers are either charging a high shipping cost, no longer ships to Europe or simply stopped their shops for the moment. In addition, I’ve been wondering if the shipping from Korea will still go smoothly during the Corona crisis…

Eventually I had enough and I finally took my chances and placed an order from Korea. We’re talking a lot of K-beauty for the price of €400. Yesterday I finally placed a huge mega order from the Korean web shop JOLSE! JOLSE offers a good range of products and brands, nice prices and there’s always a lot of discounts on their website. They’re usually fast and shipping is like 2-3 weeks to Europe. They are also generous with free products and samples with every order. We’ll see how things work out this time. Me and my friends ordered together and we always share customs. The shipping cost was relatively low and ended up at about €20 if I remember correctly. I suspect that this order is at least 6-7kg of Korean skin care or more… I’ll keep you updated and I’m very excited indeed hihi!

Mega order from JOLSE Korea

Above all Korean products I’ve ordered from JOLSE Korea. I have ordered many of the same products, for example the Tonymoly Shea Butter Face & Body. I actually order 5 tubes on that one. It’s probably best to buy bulk during Corona times, do you agree? €400 poorer and now one just have to keep the fingers crossed that the delivery will arrive safely in Sweden as soon as possible. I’ll keep you posted for sure! By the way, do you see any Korean products that you’re extra curious about? And can you spot the one japanese product in the bunch hihi?

Have any of you ordered K-beauty from Korea in the past six months? How fast was the shipping to Europe? Feel free to share in the comments.

Baby fun in K-beauty Blog!

Hi guys, how are you doing? Here comes a small update from my life at the moment having a brand new baby…

I know, it’s been several weeks since I last posted in the blog but it has its natural explanation. In the middle of April I gave birth to a brand new baby boy. He has just turned 3 months and I thought I would be able to write K-beauty posts but between 2 kids including a new born baby there’s not much time left to be honest. Not to mention the poor sleep, don’t even get me started!

I also want to mention what’s been happening to the blog in the recent past couple of weeks. If you’ve been visiting some, you may have noticed that the blog was suspended on and off, and occasionally didn’t work as expected. To make a long story short, I have actually moved the entire blog to a new server as my old web host suddenly raised the price with several hundreds of euros. However, everything should be working fine again.

I proudly present “baby brother”

Baby brother is helping with the blogging. I am SO happy to share this post with you guys. Well, he has no name yet, we actually call him “baby brother” at the moment. My husband and I cannot agree on the name. We’ll have to submit the papers of his name asap or the government will probably name him “Sven” or something haha. My suggestions for names include names like Emilio, Calvin, Collin, Angelo and Marlon. My husband’s suggestions include names like Nexus, Cosmos, Codi, Click and Pixel. Yes, there’s a slight difference in our preferences, who knew. What should we do? I’ve tried to meet him half way coming up with the name Calvin Cosmos, we shall see if my husband agrees…

Tip! The baby is playing with the Tonymoly Magic Food Banana Sleeping Pack which I’m using at the moment. It’s an absolutely wonderful, very creamy, rich and nourishing Korean sleeping mask perfect for dry skin types. If you love banana then you just have to try this amazing mask. It has the most heavenly scent of sweet banana. Apply over your regular skin care at night and leave the mask to work over night. The skin is deeply hydrated, moisturized and nourished becoming soft and supple while you sleep. If you find the Tonymoly banana mask at about 10€, then buy it! It’s so worth the money you guys.

In the meantime, I hope you are well and having a fairly normal summer despite the Corona virus. We have stayed in Stockholm city pretty much the whole time and we don’t plan any trips ahead. Having 10 minutes left for a sheet mask is luxury between a screaming baby and a grumpy 6-year-old! An occasional trip to the nearest beach is pretty much what I will be up to this summer, and I am very happy with that at the moment...

I wish all of you guys a mega nice summer vacation. Don’t forget to use SPF and stay away from strong sunlight which is the number one cause to premature aging. All the best!
