[REVIEW] Mizon Water Volume EX Cream & A'PIEU Nonco Tea Tree Spot Patch 어퓨난고 티트리 스팟 패치

Hi, it's Finn!
How's everyone's Lunar New Year celebration and how much angpao did you guys get so far?
During Chinese New Year, I only went to one Chinese family house. Regretfully, I did not get to eat their delicious catering because I've already eaten before going and my tummy was feeling full. What a bummer!

In this post, I am going to do a review on the very last items I've gotten from my second Roseroseshop haul. If you haven't read about the haul, do check out by clicking the link below;
Second Roseroseshop Haul

Mizon Water Volume EX Cream Sample

This was one of the samples that I received from my purchase.
I tested the product last month. I tried to remember bits and pieces of my experience with the product.....this is the result of writing an overdue post, I do not remember much about the experience, thats why I need to write a post faster sometimes. But....if I am unable to write a post quickly, means that I am occupied with real life and have a couple of pending posts that needs to be published. Oh well, thats the perk of being an independent blogger.
Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy blogging.

So back to the topic, the cream has a thick consistency, has a bit of perfumey water scent(does water even have scent??) and with cloudy color. The scent dissolves as soon as the cream is being massaged. The cream will definitely suit people with dry skin, I thought. The cream does moisturizes the skin, but I think that it is too much for people with an oily skin like me. As a result, the cream does not fully absorbed into the skin properly. I think the result will differ when the cream is worked on people with dry to normal skin types.
As a conclusion, the cream is moisturizing! So if you are experiencing cold weather or having a dry skin, check out this Water Volume EX Cream by Mizon! I will definitely not going to purchase the original packaging, because it does not suit my skin condition.

A'PIEU Nonco Tea Tree Spot Patch

I wanted to try out a new acne patch as an alternative option to my all time favorite acne patch, which is The Face Shop Intensive Spot Patch. I reviewed about it HERE. The extract on the front packaging says,
"Containing pure herbal extracts from nature, NonCo series makes your skin clear and healthy while preventing skin problems"
There are actually other products from A'PIEU's Nonco Tea Tree range, such as their bubble foam, emulsion, tea tree oil, tea tree pink powder spot cream, sheet mask, night care acne patches, stick concealer, toner and many more.

The sheet contains 6 small patches and 6 big patches, totaling of 12 patches for acne-treatment. The product costs USD0.27 (₩300)
The back packaging is fully written in Korean.
The patches are so thin. It sticks well on the skin and the clear color makes it less obvious looking. There is no tea tree scent detected in the patches.

My experience
I've already used up all of the small patches. I usually cut the big patches into half because the size is too big for a pimple. I have no problem with sticking the patch onto the spot area, I am liking the patch since it does not look obvious on the face, unless someone really look whats on your face. But I have problem with pulling out the patch on my skin after using it for throughout the day and night. The adhesive strength is strong with the patches, I kind of have to put more pressure in pulling it out. The process of pulling it out is not gentle overall.

Does the patch heals acne?
No, I don't think so. I feel like it does nothing to my skin. The process is kind of slow. I feel that it does not soothe the pimple too. For a better healing process using an acne patch, definitely try out The Face Shop Intensive Spot Patch!

Will I repurchase?
Nope, this product is a dud(nothing)!!!!

Photos are all taken by me using my phone camera, Samsung S4. The A'PIEU spot patch were bought using my own money and the Mizon EX Cream was a sample given by Roseroseshop. My thoughts and experience are all true and honest.

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now.

Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that?
