Review: Missha Super Aqua Oxygen Micro Essence Peeling Gel

Finally got a sample of this! Ever since I bought Missha Super Aqua Detox Peeling Gel, I've been meaning to try this one to compare. At first I was planning to buy some samples to try but luckily I got one for free.

Review: Etude House Silk Scarf Shampoo and Conditioner

I've been wanting to try the Etude House Silk Scarf shampoo and conditioner ever since I bought and tried the Etude House Silk Scarf Moist Hair Mist and Etude House Silk Scarf Repair Hair Essence with pretty good results. A new seller popped up on eBay selling these so I decided to buy them. Lucky me because the seller increased them in price soon after!

Review: Skinfood Citron Scalp Care Shampoo

Yes, after I try all the Skinfood hair essence/oil products, naturally I should move on to trying their shampoo! There were some other products like a shampoo that helps prevent hair loss and thinning hair, but my hair right now is thick as ever in terms of amount and each strand. So I decided to try this shampoo after reading some good reviews.

Review: Etude House Lip and Eye Remover (makeup remover)

Is it just me, or does this look like Lancome's Bi-Facil makeup remover? They even share the same blue/clear colors! I've used Lancome's Bi-Facil before with good results, but it was a bit expensive at $27 for 125ml. After that, I decided to try Skinfood Milk Shake Point Make-up Remover, a cheaper alternative. That one was as effective at removing my eye makeup as Lancome, except it gave me blurry vision (since it's not clear, so whatever goes in is like milk going into your eyes). So I decided to try this one out.

Review: IOPE Retinol TX Intensive Wrinkle Care

I am starting to see some fine lines on my forehead and have been trying to find something that will help. I read hope-inablog blog's post about IOPE Retinol Tx and how it sold like crazy when it was first released in 1997 and is still a best-seller today.

Review: Missha All Around Safe-Block Mild Essence Sun Milk SPF45 PA+++ (sunscreen)

School has been getting busier since finals are coming up and since I've decided to enroll myself in all sorts of extra-curriculars because I just love to torture myself ha ha... Anyways, this is a sample I got from one of my internet purchases. [Update Jult 7 2013: Also bought the full version]. The only other UV/sunscreen "Milk" that I've tried is the Hadalabo Shirojyun Arbutin Whitening UV Milk SPF20 which didn't really live up to its "milk" name because it was pretty greasy and made my face pretty oily after several hours! Let's see how this fares

Review: Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule

What's with Missha and their crazy long names! My last Missha review was for their Near Skin Firming Peptide Intensive Lifting Cream which also has a long product name but at least it has "firming" and "lifting" so I know what the product does. This product's name doesn't even tell me what it does! What's night repair? Science activator? Time Revolution?

Review: The Saem Chaga Fermentation Liposome Good Sleep Cream

I got these samples when I bought The Saem's Cell ReNew Anti-Wrinkle E.G.F Snail Complex Syn-Ake Mask and The Saem Chaga White Liposome Biocellulose Whitening Mask while I was vacationing in Korea. I've been using Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Sleeping Mask at night for the past few months with great effects but I went on vacation this weekend and I thought, what a better time to bring a sample sleeping mask I've been meaning to try and save luggage space at the same time!

Review: Missha Near Skin Firming Peptide Intensive Lifting Cream

I actually didn't know about this product until I got this as a complimentary sample. But it basically hits what I need now: firming and anti-wrinkle serum. So I was pretty happy to try this out because I've been using Skinfood Gold Caviar Collagen Serum which hasn't done much for the fine lines on my forehead. Same with the cream version.

Review: Skin79 SUE Hydrating Fluid (essence/emulsion))

I got this as a complimentary sample in one of my many Korean cosmetic purchases on eBay. This is something that I would never buy myself because my troubled skin needs a lot more help from a moisturizer than hydration. But since it was a sample given I decided to give it a try during the weekend, when I wouldn't be facing too many people.
