[REVIEW] NEULII Cosmetics by Roseroseshop Review

Sunday, April 17, 2016

Neulii was launched on 14th March 2016. It was an achievement for a Korean beauty onlineshop to develop their own cosmetics brand. Congratulations, Roseroseshop.

From their website;
"Neulii will keep your skin as young and beautiful as a baby's everytime, all the time"

Roseroseshop was(or still) holding an event where they send Neulii samples to any requester. I requested for mine because who does not love to try out skincare samples?

I received 5 samples of Neulii Tea Tree BHA Blemish Control Serum and 5 samples of Neulii AHA Vita Brightening Serum. I've finished testing out a couple of samples so I am going to share my thoughts about them here.

Neulii Tea Tree BHA Blemish Control Serum Review

"A Serum containing natural BHA and tea tree ingredient, arranging sebum control and dead skin cells to prevent skin trouble."

Water, Salix Alba(Willow) Bark Water, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Water, Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Lactate , PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Lactic Acid , Hydroxyethylcellulose ,Betaine Salicylate(0.2%) ,  Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Panthenol, Allantoin, Sodium Hyaluronate,  Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil.

I am a lazy girl so Imma just copy paste my review of the tea tree from my Instagram to here;

The serum has a transparent watery serumy texture with a light tea tree scent mixed with a bit of alcohol. I am okay with the smell.

The experience: it was a mild experience, product does not do any harm on my skin eventhough I had negative experiences with tea tree products. The effects however are visible such as it does control the blemishes to not make it any worser since the first use. I noticed that my pimples became smaller and heals faster too while using this. When my pimples completely healed, there were no traces of blemishes at all. I have to agree that it prevents development of pimples too. It takes time for the effect to show but I think this serum is a good one for preventive measures. Not sure about sebum control but I do not notice any major oiliness on my face. Recommended to people with troubled skin. Would love to get the bottle packaging^^

Seriously speaking, Neulii Tea Tree BHA serum is a potential holy grail of mine. It does a really great job in keeping pimples at bay. I am getting the deluxe size so I am excited that I have an acne-control product!

Neulii AHA Vita Brightening Serum

"Brightening Serum that makes skin vigorous and glossy with ideal amount of natural AHA, exfoliating ingredient and Vitamin C.

Water, Pyrus Malus(Apple) Fruit Water, Hippophae Rhamnoides Water, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glycolic Acid, Betaine, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate , Hydroxyethylcellulose , Sodium Hydroxide,  Xanthan Gum, Ascorbic Acid."

The Experience: this too has a watery texture, has a faint metal smell (or is it just me). While I was using this, I noticed that my complexion has brightened and it also gives some glow to the face. I love it. I would get the deluxe size but getting a brightened complexion is not what I really aim for now, I currently aim for skin clearing first.

I am recommending this if you'd like to add some natural glow to your face^^

I received the tea tree and brightening serum from my 4th Roseroseshop haul where you guys can read about it HERE

 These are what I've gotten from my Neulii samples request. I gave away the Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle to my mom so I cannot share my reviews about it. My mom said her skin feels nice while using it, I am sure it will feel nice on other mature skin too :) here are the details for the Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum from Neulii's official website;

"A Serum containing snail slime and propolis extracts to assist anti-aging and wrinkle care.

Water, Butylene Glycol, Snail Secretion Filtrate, Propolis Extract, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Allantoin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Carbomer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol,  Arginine, Adenosine."

Neulii Aloe BHA Soothing Serum

"Gel-type serum that helps in recovering roughened and sensitive skin, contains natural BHA and aloe, excellent for calming skin.

Water, Salix Alba(Willow) Bark Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol , Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Betaine Salicylate(0.05%), Sodium Polyacrylate,  Sodium Hyaluronate"

The Experience: the consistency of this one is thicker than the tea tree and brightening serums, texture is almost mucus-like. It does not really have a scent to it. It moisturizes my skin due to its thicker consistency but I do not notice any soothing capabilities with this one, sadly. Aloe Vera gels' do a better soothing job for my skin to date. But anyway who knows that this one might work for you :)

I did not request samples from Roseroseshop twice but I just happened to get another mail that contains Neulii samples because I registered for a new account at their website. Roseroseshop was giving away samples for newly registered customers too by that time. Thank you again, RRS ^.^

Neulii Green Tea Pore Tightening Serum

"Highly enriched serum containing concentrated green tea and natural BHA extracts; removes pore expansion caused by excessive sebum, and helps maintain pore contraction.

Water, Salix Alba(Willow) Bark Water, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Arginine, Allantoin, Carbomer,  Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil , Menthyl Lactate, Mentha Haplocalix Extract."

The Experience: I did not get to take photo of its serum because I am a forgetful girl but the consistency is very serum-like, clear and does not have any scent. I wished it had green tea scent though. While I was using this, I noticed my skin has gotten tighter and made my skin a bit dry. Due to this, I know the pore tightening serum is working. I am the most excited to try out this one because I have pore concerns. I am looking forward to its long term effects. I am getting myself the big bottle :)

My skin does not break out throughout using 4 different Neulii samples. It is suitable for all skin types and I like the fact that the serums are clear.

My favorite has to be the tea tree blemish control serum, the reasons are stated above. My least favorite is the aloe soothing serum since it does not provide soothing capability to my skin. I hope Neulii can improve on the scent that is found in the brightening serum.
Do you have any Neulii serums that you like and would love to try?

Check out Neulii official website at neulii.com or get your choice of Neulii serums at roseroseshop.com 
Jolse caters them too at affordable prices as well.

Photos are all mine. Products were provided by Roseroseshop. This is not a paid post. I just wanted to share the Neulii goodness to you guys. I am proud of Roseroseshop for launching their own cosmetics brand because I've hauled from them many times and their services to me are just brilliant to date.

[REVIEW] Mizon Special Solution Good Night White Sleeping Mask

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

I just finished with my IT Security Management and wanting to submit it to Turnitin. While waiting for the result, sparing some time for blogging it is!

MIZON Special Solution Good Night White Sleeping Mask Review

I got this from my previous 4th Roseroseshop haul where you guys can read about it HERE

"White as the snow comes onto your skin. Your ultimate skin, and the purest skin will come true"

The reason I bought this is because it might help to even out my skin tone and lighten my blemishes. I have an uneven skin tone where my nose appears darkest among other parts of my face due to a terrible sun burn few years ago. Since then, my journey to finding an effective whitening product is never ending. I read a couple of good reviews about this item that it evens out users' skin tone, so I just had to get this whitening sleeping mask.

Product's description, directions and ingredients are on top. I am curious of what type of placenta is being used in most Korean cosmetics. I would comfortably use if it contains plant placenta, but when it comes to animal placenta, I will be disgusted.

Since mulberry has been working well on my skin for whitening properties, I am happy when I found out Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask contains mulberry.

The opening is sealed when product is new

I have no problem with the dispenser size

The sleeping mask has a gel-like consistency, cast-y white in color and has a slight shower gel scent

The gel dries semi-matte on my skin and absorbs well. It can be a bit dewy sometimes and gives my face a healthy glowy look. The moisturizing capability and hydration are enough for my skin. I use this as the last step of my evening skincare routine after applying one or two serums.

The next morning, I always wake up to an even skin tone, brighter, lighter and whiter complexion whenever I am using this sleeping mask. I am soooo loving the results! I always enjoy looking at the mirror in the morning, especially under the natural lighting. My face look flawless and my blemishes are lightened a bit. Product does not give me break outs.

Unfortunately, the effect only lasts for awhile. After washing my face in the morning, my skin tone turn back to normal, which is upsetting. Good things sometimes don't last forever, haha.

Pros +
♢ Moisturizing (won't be enough for dry skin but you can layer with as much moisturizers as you want before using this as the last skincare step)
♢ Whitened and brightened complexion in the morning
♢ Lightens blemishes
♢ Skin tone becomes even in the morning

Cons -
♢Whitening effect only lasts a short time
♢ Does not help with lightening hyperpigmentation

My rating:
4/5. I just wish the result is long term. Its a not bad product.

Will I repurchase?
Maybe no. I am looking for a whitening product that gives long term or permanent result

Will I recommend?
If you are looking for a long term whitening effects like me, then I am not recommending this.

MARCH 2016 Kbeauty Empties (Secret Key, 3W Clinic & Innisfree)

Wednesday, April 6, 2016

Hi! Hows everyone's April so far? I haven't blogged for more than a week now.
Its the end of first week of April and finally I am posting about my March Kbeauty product empties. Been occupied with hella assignments so it is really hard for me to spare some time for blogging. I am quite active on my Instagram though, I post about short product reviews almost daily. So keep up with me by following me on Instagram @fnn_w
Without further due, lets go straight ahead to the list of products!

From left to right;
1) 3W Clinic Snail Foam Cleansing (REVIEWED)
2) Secret Key Aloe Soothing Moist Toner (REVIEWED)
3) (top) Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm (REVIEWED)
4) (bottom) 3W Clinic Snail Mucus Sleeping Pack (REVIEWED)

They are actually 2 other beauty products that I emptied, which are Tracia Whitening Body Lotion and Amway's Hair Repairing Serum. I did not include them in the picture because I try to keep my post centered towards Kbeauty products. But I will add in all the products that I've emptied during the month in the future as an improvement.

I am just going to quickly conclude my thoughts about what I think of the products above.

3W Clinic Snail Foam Cleansing

This cleanser is great, it cleanse the face thoroughly without leaving any residues, as proven on the toner stage, there were no makeup residues at all. I enjoyed using this cleanser, it leaves my face feeling moisturized rather than feeling tight and dry. Since it has whitening properties, I noticed that sometimes my face is brighter and healthier. The downside is that it only bubbles well when you squeeze bigger than pea size of the cleanser, so the cleanser can ran out quickly. Other than that, no cons! I personally think that the cleanser will suit all skin types since it is gentle. I actually planned to repurchase the cleanser but as for now, I am concentrating on getting a cleanser for troubled/acne skin as I still get acne and pimples from time to time.

Secret Key Aloe Soothing Moist Toner

Since this toner mainly contains aloe, it is really soothing. It soothes my irritated skin and redness well. The toner is calming and cooling too. The toner is gentle and does not sting. Surely gonna repurchase and use it whenever my skin is irritated! It suits all skin types, especially perfect for sensitive skin.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm

At first, I was a bit impressed since it eliminates a few of my whiteheads, thought it would work long term but nah. I observed that this product will work more efficiently when you include blackhead care/removing products in your skincare routine. One time I added Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid to my skincare routine. Later on, one of my stubborn blackheads found its way out from my face while I was massaging my face with the blackhead out balm. It was pretty impressive that time. When I ran out of the blackhead power liquid, the balm turned back into a normal non-effective balm. The balm, however, cleanse leftover makeup residues and dirt that my makeup remover did not pick up. The balm makes my face extra cleaner (despite the greasiness of the balm) before actually moving on to the cleansing step. Overall it is just a fine product to me, not really impressive unless it partners with additional blackhead care products. Won't repurchase.

3W Clinic Snail Mucus Sleeping Pack

Since snail mucus claims to repair the skin and vanish acne scars, ofcourse at first I was excited to try out this one. But then later, it somehow disappoints me. This snail mucus sleeping pack is not really centered towards skin repair, but it is for restoring the skin's elasticity and giving a healthy skin. My skin does feel healthy throughout the use. Did not see much changes on the elasticity side, maybe it will work better on a mature skin. What I like about this sleeping pack is that it has a light gel consistency and it really penetrates into the skin even after applying it twice (I do this because I want to finish the product early and find a replacement). The gel dries matte. It is moisturizing enough for people with oily skin like me but I think the moisture provided is not enough for dry to normal skin types, you guys definitely need more moisture for the night and throughout the night. This is not a bad product overall, it just does not give the result that I wanted.

So thats all for now! Do you guys have any interest to try any of the products above?^^

Surely I won't be blogging often because of assignments. I hope I can finish them on time :/

Have a bless-full April, everyone! ♥
