Review: Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

I ran into this mask when I went to Korea last summer. I was only familiar with the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask as it was the original product. I didn't do any further research to find out that it has a counterpart because I didn't really like the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. I found it too weak. It didn't brighten my face and it didn't tighten my pores. It didn't really seem to suck much of the impurities that clay masks are known to do. So when I saw these two clay masks side by side, I asked an Innisfree store attendant what the differences were and he told me that Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask was for drier skin whereas the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask was for oilier skin types who needed more pore refinement. So I took the plunge and bought one to try!

Review: Belif Hungarian Water Essence and Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb

First post in a long time. I apologize for the long absence. It's been a tough few months. My face can be full proof of that as it's been out of control lately. I've experienced problems on my face that I never expected to see. One of them is dry spots. I've always been a combination type skin, and if I had to choose between oily or dry, I was definitely the oily type.

When I got my 2 dry spots on both my lower cheeks during my cold a few months ago, I thought it was going to go away once I felt better and was more hydrated. Well, be it stress or ageing, those two 5cm diameter spots never went away. So when I bought the full sized version of Belif Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist from Sephora and needed to stack more things for free shipping, I decided to try Belif's two famous hydrating creams. I got a sample of the Belif Aqua Bomb shown here on the right (the other, more powerful Belif Moisturizing Bomb, I will review later). I also happened to get the Belif Hungarian Water Essence sample back when I was in Korea. Since they were both for hydration, I decided to use them together.
