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?
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
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 6.50โฌ / 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.

Empty: Huxley Extract It Toner
Newby: iUNIK Rose Galactomyces Essential Toner
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.

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
Newby: Huxley More Than A Moist Moisturizing Cream
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!
