[Review] COSRX Galactomyces Whitening Power Essence

I have been a fan of COSRX since they produced products that mostly create possitive effects on my skin with an affordable price. I have tried their snail essence, oil free ultra moistirizing lotion, and low pH good morning gel cleanser.

I have been using their snail essence and very happy with the result, so I continue with this Galactomyces essence. Whether this product is a hit or miss please check the full review below.

PACKAGING

As we talk about the packaging, like any other COSRX product, they are being consistent with the white simple box and I like it. I find it clean and simple. While the essence itself packed in a clear plastic bottle with pump, so it is safe for me as a mother of an active kids.

TEXTURE & SCENT

The texture watery but not as liquid as MISSHA First Treatment Essence or SK-II FTE. I have to pump twice to get a proper amount to cover all of my face and neck. It also does not have any fragrance and it is a double plus point for me.

WHAT IT CLAIMS

Anti aging, reduce wrinkles, hydrates skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, make a glow and radiant skin, whitening effect, lighten acne scars.

MY OPINION

Honestly after using it more than a month, I still not see a significant result. For hydrating effect, I do feel it once I put it on my face, but it does not stay long. As for any other claims, I also did not feel it in my skin.

The plus points are how they absorb quickly into my skin and how it does not contain any fragrance. While the plastic bottle also considered to be a plus point for me.

RATING

🌟🌟🌟 (3/5)

REPURCHASE?

I will try another essence or back to COSRX snail essence.

[Review] SKINFOOD Bitter Green Clay to Foam

Today I’m going to review one of the best cleanser I’ve been using : Skinfood Bitter Green Clay to Foam. For me my best ranking cleanser should be at first does not stripped my face. That is the most important for me.

So let’s get started.

PACKAGING

I’m in love with the color of their packaging once I saw it online and make a rush decision to give it a try. The green color feels relaxing for me. It reflects the ingredients of the foam, which is contains of 5 main ingredients : wheat sprout, kale, celery, broccoli, and cabbage as mentioned on their packaging.

I bought this online from a local online shop and get a IDR 150.000 price (USD 11.5).

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

As I search on the internet, SKINFOOD’S Bitter Green Clay to Foam contains Amazonian clay to absorb pore-clogging impurities. It said to be quicker than a mask and more thorough than a foaming cleanser. 

TEXTURE & SCENT

The texture more like a clay mask. But it turns into bubbles after we put some water.

I like how it smell so refreshing with a proper amount of scent so it doesn’t bother me as an unscented skincare lover.

MY OPINION

There are several possitive points I give to this product. I like how Korean product (including this one) could provide you a good quality with a very affordable price. This cleanser clearly does no strip my face and I give a very high point for this. Even though there’s a slight scent it does not bother at all. As a second cleanser after a cleansing oil, I feel that this product have a good cleansing task. My skin feels very soft after I apply this product. It feels lightweight, non greasy and soothing. 

I try to search for the cons or the negative point but I could not find one. So I’m going to skip.

RATING

🌟🌟🌟🌟 (4.5/5)

REPURCHASE?

Yes definitely. 

[Review] MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence

I always want to try this product since a looong time but never been decided to buy since the pros and cons from every review I have read. But then I decided to give it a try and here I am making a review about Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence after use almost half of the bottle.

PACKAGING

The packaging comes with a frosted glass bottle in the silver box. I like the silver box and the frosted glass bottle itself because it makes the product look exclusive and expensive. The only problem is that it made of glass. I just could not imagine if I put it on the edge of the table and slip, then the whole product only become memory. So, I think it will be better if they don’t put it in a glass bottle.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

This product full of 80% fermented yeast concentrate which could absorbs into skin instantly and energize the skin. It claimed to be improving fine lines and skin tone.

This is the first step in the skin care routine after cleansing. Use your palm and absorb gently and evenly onto your face.

TEXTURE & SCENT

The texture is watery almost the same with SK-II FTE but the color is more clear compare to SK-II which is more yellowish. I am so happy because it is an unscented product. 

MY OPINION

I use this after cleansing and apply toner so it is not practically my first step of skin care routine after cleansing for me. From their claim of the product’s effect, I feel the my skin tone more even now. Besides that this product surely hydrated and yet it feels so light also. You also could use this as a mask by pouring it to the square cotton pad then put the cotton pad in your face and leave it for 15-20 minutes.

From what I feel after use half of the bottle, I feel this product have been fulfill most of their promises. Now I know why this product been very popular. You will feel more great result if you combine this with the MISSHA Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule. I will review this product soon.

Almost all of it is a hit, the only miss is the glass bottle. I really hope that Missha will think about it and come up with a non glass bottle. Maybe they could use the SK-II FTE packaging for reference.

RATINGS

🌟🌟🌟🌟 (4.5/5)

REPURCHASE?

Yes definitely I’m going for my second bottle right after I finish this.

My Daily Skin Care Routine

I’m going to share my daily skin care routine. I’m not a beauty expert, so what I’m going to do is just sharing and hope the post could help you.
I am one of those people who believe that maintain your skin since early age is very important.
I tend to be so loyal to one brand if I do really find the significant result in my skin using that product. I have been using Clinique since my first step to enter college (around year 2000) because it could make my acne prone skin turn into a very fine skin 😘, Β and I continued to use it for 10 years. But after that I feel like my skin is getting used to it and didn’t get any great impact anymore, even my skin tend to dry and cracks. I do some research online and some people wrote that you couldn’t use the same skin care for a very long time.
Then I started to search for another skin care brand and nothing matched my skin. Either I had a red rash or just dry and cracked skin. One day, my good friend recommend me to try Laneige. Since I live in a full day aircon environment (office, car, house) then I gave it a try for the Laneige Water Bank Series and I loved it. So I continue to use it up until now (but I stil use some other brand that I already find matches my skin really well)
Here are my daily skin care routine :
Morning skin care routine :
  1. I wash my face with Laneige Foam Cleanser Moisture
  2. I continue to use Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner. The texture is quite similar with toner for those whose more familiar with western skin care.
  3. Laneige Water Bank Essence_EX
  4. Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream_EX. Laneige also having the gel variant but since my skin tend to be drier, so i choose the cream type.
  5. Shiseido SPF 30 Sun Block
Β 
For night skin routine is almost the same with the morning one, but I only take the sunblock out and add the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX to the list, apply it after cream.
Well, those are the basic skin care I daily put on my skin. Every skin is different so the skin care product also varies due to your skin type. I have a normal to dry skin but oily in my T-Zone.
Here is the snap of the skin care product I have mentioned above.
