Review - Bioglo Skin Gel

I'm quite interesting to try exfoliating products. And I found this product on a web, but you should know it's hard to find this product.

It comes inside a squeeze tub, so I think it's quite hygiene. And the gel can be easily spread out from the tube. The net wieght is 50 gr.
 

This is an exfoliating gel for facial use. I'm afraid for using hard scrub to exfoliate my face since it could harsh my face. It contains AHA, BHA, Aloe Vera extract, Geranium, Royal Jelly, Hyaluronic Acid, Lactic Acid, and Ginseng Extract. It comes into cool transparent gel with sparkles inside. Just put a little gel on your finger, apply around your face just like applying base make-up on your face, and then massage it in rounded direction. After that dead skin cells will come out soon.


 I use it around 2-3 time a week, and quite satisfy with how it works. It helps me reduce some whitehead but not my deepen blackheads. =( But I still use it weekly to prevent any dirt and dead skin cells on my face. It's quite good and affordable product with affordable price.

I give it 3.5 of 5.. =) If you wanna try any exfoliating product, you can try this one.

Review - SkinFood Buckwheat Loose Powder

^___^ today I'm gonna write about my favorite loose powder from The Skin Food.. Well this is also my first loose powder. Since it has a good review on the net, so here I come.

The Skin Food Buckwheat Loose powder has four different shades :
#10 Transparent 
#21 Light Beige
#23 Natural Beige 
#40 Lavender
I choose shade #21, because my face tone is a little bit darker from my skin tone.

It comes in  23gr net weight with a cute SkinFood sign on the packaging. It is quite bulky, so it's hard to bring inside your bag. It contains a fluffy puff inside and also a shifter between the powder and the puff. And this loose powder has a fragrance of classic which I like very much. For those who didn't like fragrance in their make up might pass this one. The coverage is sheer, but could stay for a long time. The powder itself are so soft so I'm feeling like wear nothing after applying this loose powder on my face.If I'm in not going for outdoor activity, it could last for 4-5 hours and stay matte. I always use this after I used my Skinfood BB Cream Aloe. Seems both of them are perfect combination for me. 

I never compare both of shade #21 and #23.. but I think there might be little difference only. Because shade #21 could fit my skintone well.And the most important part, it didn't break me out! I'm afraid of using loose powder, because I'd used my mother loose powder before, and the next day it breaks me out! So I prefer to use my transparent compact. But since I read that compact powder isn't good because it clog your pores more than loose powder, I prefer to use loose powder.

It's not expensive too. =) so I think it's worth to try, because I love this a lot.

For this product I give it 4 of 5. Why? In fact I love its cute packaging, but it's quite bulky and hard to bring.

I thought I'm gonna purchase one of things above.. >_< I wish if I could go to Korea and buy all of these Pucca stuffs... It' hard to find Pucca in here. Not as easy as years before.And now it appears when I start to know about make up things and so on.... I wanna own all that things...

Review - Baviphat Apple AC Therapy Sleeping Pack

I wanna share a review about Baviphat products, since there's less reviews about Baviphat. Actually I bought this sample because of curiosity. I got some Baviphat mask samples from my last PreOrder's package, and when I tried, I'm interested a little bit. So I ordered the other kinds of Baviphat mask sample.

Now, I'm going to review the Apple AC Therapy Sleeping Pack.I will review other products in the next post.

I LOVE IT! Really.. since the first time I use it, I do really love it. Beside the fullsize jar has a really cute packaging.  >.< (see the picture above) It smells very nice, like fresh apple. This is the reason I like from Baviphat product. Especially their fruit mask. It has natural fragrance of the origin fruit it contains. I didn't smell any weird chemical stings that usually appears from skincare products. It feels like aromatherapy somehow, but it smells SUPER nice.

Here is the picture of the sample. The sample's packaging is cute  x3

I never wear any sleeping pack before, so I didn't know that sleeping pack has similarity with night cream. Just apply it all over your face like using a cream and the next morning rinse it with lukewarm water. 

See, the texture is watery and not greasy at all. After few minutes I feel really fresh like wearing nothing on my face.

It is said the Apple AC Therapy Sleeping Mask is good for nourishment and trouble relief. It contains fruits acid to remove old skins (exfoliation). I'm interested for its moisturizing and exfoliation part. Because it's hard for me to find a suitable moisturizer for my face. Every morning after I used this mask in the night before, I found out my face turn fresh and moisturized well. For those who have oily skin, it might be getting oily a little bit  in the morning after using this mask. It didn't break me out. It helps me to calm my acne. So I thought I will purchase the full size jar.

I feel that this mask really works eventhough it can't works like magic to turn your dull and tired face into smooth clear skin. 

Unfortunately, Baviphat official website are all in Korean, so it's hard for me and other who didn't understand Korean to read it. All products instruction, ingredients, etc are also written in Korean.

I give it 5 of 5.. Great function. Fruity fragrance. Cute packaging. And also affordable price for 100gr jar. What are you waiting for? ;) I do really LOVE this product.

Review - Yoko Yogurt Spa Milk Salt

Hellow everyone... I'm still enjoying my long holiday and doing a lot of observation for my beauty and skincare routine.. there will be lots of review around this week. ^o^  hope you enjoy reading my posts.

Today I'm gonna review about Yoko Yogurt Spa Milk Salt. The first time I know about this product, I'm not interested at all with 'whitening scrub'. Sounds not promising at all. But after reading so many reviews and find out it is not expensive, I thought it might worth to give it a try...So here it is.

It contains 300 gr nett weight. It has four different fragrance, Milk, Yogurt, Sakura, and Lavender. I tried the Yogurt variants because many reviews said it has a good fragrance. See, the texture is similar with salt. And guess what, it tastes like salt! (I tasted it incidentally)

Unfortunately, the zipper packaging is not good, when the scrub go through between the zipper, the zipper can't be used anymore. So I put it inside a glass jar.

Unlike other scrub that mixed with cream, this scrub can't be used when your skin is dry. Apply this scrub after finishing your bath. Wait about 4-5 minutes before you apply it. If you apply it when your body is totally wet, the scrub will disappeared immediately. And after that you can start to massage your body with the scrub with circular movements. This scrub is pretty hard for those who usually use soft scrub. But after 3-4 usage, I thought it's not as hard as the first time I use it. Moreover, I prefer this one than the other I ever used before.

After that, rinse your body... and voillaa... a super SMOOTH skin... its fragrance last for a long time too.. I love this product so much. =) And after used it every week, I feel that my skin is softer than before and a little bit brigthen. I'm thinking about using the body butter and soap bar from Yoko.

I give it 4.5  of 5. Excellent ^_^ and I love this. Repurchase? Of Course !!!

Review - Skinfood BB Cream Aloe#1

Happy New Year all ^^ .. although there's something special for me in this year...Let's face our day with full spirit and hope!! I wish this year can be fulfilled with many good things for all of us...

Today I'm gonna review my Skinfood BB Cream Aloe. First Time I know about BB cream, I was very confused to decide which one will suit me. Since there's so many variants of BB cream outside there.. I'm kinda interested with Missha Perfect Cover and Baviphat beside Skinfood Aloe. But, Missha PC is a little bit pricey for me if I buy it as my first BB cream, and in the same time it's hard to find Baviphat BB cream sample. So I decided to try Skinfood.

 I bought both Skinfood Aloe and Mushroom samples to see which one fits me better. It's said that Aloe is recommended for those who have oily skin and mushroom for those who have normal skin.   And Skinfood Aloe has stolen my heart.. ^^ I love its scent, fresh aloe. So finally I decide to buy the fullsize. Mushroom gets oily faster on my face. But, it doesn't mean I won't buy Mushroom in future...



See.. it match my skin perfectly.. Although my face's skin tone is a little bit darker than my hand.. but using this BB cream won't make me seems dull anymore.

I usually use a single layer of this BB Cream and then cover with Buckwheat Loose Powder on it.. If there's any special occasion, I might apply it about 2-3 layers more than before. Natural and fresh look for everyday....

But remember to clean your face til there's no BB cream left on your face.. It will cause breakout in the next day so be careful. =)

The coverage of this BB cream is medium, beside I don't want to use a thick coverage for daily use, so I'm fine with its coverage.. for those who wants more coverage, I might not recommend you to buy this one.

I give it 4 of 5 .. Like its coverage, its oil control too.. but it isn't waterproof and left some browns on my tissues when I wipe off my sweat..
