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. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that?
Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushion because their advertisements amazed me. I finally get to own the cushion and experience its realness on my own thanks to BB Cosmetic.


One of the promotional photos from April Skin. As an acne prone person, who isn't captivated by this?? Photo courtesy of Lelong My.

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion features a Black and White ver. where Black is suitable for normal to oily skin and provide more coverage than the White, White is suitable for dry skin and for cold whether. This post will solely focusing on the Black ver, I haven't gotten the white version yet so I cannot do a real comparison.


Brief info and claims of the Magic Snow Cushion. Photo taken from BB Cosmetic.


Lets start with unboxing it first~ I like the look of the box, black and elegant, has April Skin Snow Cushion wording as the layout


I like the matte black feel of the casing, it has a radius size of 4cm (please, I measured with a ruler).


I got mine in shade #23 natural beige, which I think is the darkest shade available.


Opening the cushion~ the mirror is sealed with a thin plastic film that can be removed.



I love a fresh clean cushion puff~ it has a soft fabric spongey feel.


Cushion is sealed with a sticker when it is new


The cushion looked pale as if no foundation is being poured inside. I thought there was a little content.


But then after I pressed the cushion with my finger, the foundation rises up~ the consistency is liquidy. Photo above is focusing on the cushion.


Photo above is focusing on the foundation that is being picked up.


Swatch of April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in natural beige #23. I don't know but the cushion has some kind of a new furniture scent.


Picking up the cushion with its puff~ the puff gabs the foundation well. make sure not to push the cushion too much or else the foundation will spill annoyingly on the puff.


Comparison on my hand with and without the cushion. it really whitened my complexion. I thought that the natural beige appeared whiter than usual.


Another comparison. The difference is distinguishable. Even so, the cushion sits nicely on my hand that has a nice surface. Now, lets test out its realness on the face.

Just wanna keep you in mind that my skin is purging due to an incompatible reaction with Aritaum Charcoal Bamboo Mud Pack (story here). It happened 3 days ago, my skin was almost clear after battling with hormonal acne and its blemishes, I actually wanted to do reviews on this April Skin Magic Snow Cushion by that time but unfortunate things happen so it got delayed a bit. I was not feeling confident to do a face makeup review due to the purging.

Only yesterday, I thought that this purging is an opportunity to show the effectiveness and coverage of the cushion, whether it can cover imperfections well or not. So I built up my courage to carry on with doing a real review that involves a real face, real skin concern and real process. Theres always an opportunity behind every difficulty, ain't it? Haha.

Viewer's discretion is advised for the following photos. Im not sure if it will look gross to you but it looked gross to me. My poor skin hasn't been through this kind of purging lately. When it happened, it is always caused by incompatible reaction to new products. Keep in mind that below is my first impression review of the product, I am still testing the product in any ways possible.


Here is my right cheek for you guys


and here is my left cheek for you guys, this side is not as affected as the right side.


My full face with the cushion~ Now I am going to talk about the results in relating to its claims;

Flawless Coverage
Picture tells a thousand words, well maybe a few hundreds when I am out of words. As you can see, it took me 3 layers for the imperfections to be covered satisfyingly. When I first applied it, I thought that the shade goes on very white on my skin, the tone is distinguishable between my face and neck, it looks unnatural. First layer doesn't really cover the acne, blemishes and acne scars well, it was a light coverage. I was not satisfied so I carried on with two, and then three, which is my limit. I did try out with a 4th layer but it doesn't cover up so much anymore. A 'full flawless' coverage is achieved with atleast 3 layers. 3 FREAKIN layers. I felt so cakey. Do I want to go out with 3 layers of foundation on my face? Answered below.

Excellent Spreadability
It does spreads well since it provides moisture at the same time. The foundation being liquidy makes it easy to spread throughout the face. face does feel moisturized and hydrated throughout the use. The finish becomes dewy due to the moisture. I have an oily skin but I think it was alright, just don't moisturize the face too much during your skincare routine since this foundation will give extra moisture.

Easily Absorbs
Eventhough the finish is dewy, the foundation not smudgeable. It doesn't smudge when I swipe my face with my finger. The moisture capability is assisted by an island glacier water that claims to cover spots perfectly with only a small amount ----- less reddened spots, yes but spots that are too red, nah.

Beautiful Two Tones
Claims to deliver clear and transparency on an Asian's skin. This will only work for people with a clear skin (I envy those guys). Anyway, it evened out my skin tone too much.

Blocks UV Rays
Blocks 50+/PA+++ UV rays at the same time providing whitening and anti-aging properties. I understood why it appears soo white on my face. Not sure about how well it blocks the sun rays because I haven't been out for long while wearing this cushion, will do an update. I also need to update about its longevity.

Pros +
- Moisturizing
- Has sun block, whitening and anti-aging properties
- Easy to spread
- Doesn't smudge
- Buildable coverage
- Evens out skin tone
- No white casts
- No irritation

Cons -
- Colour is too white on me
- Doesn't provide enough coverage and doesn't cover much imperfections with one layer
- Only a few shades available, Natural Beige being the darkest

My rating
3/5. Its too bad that this product is one of the products that I am most excited to own, yet it doesn't really lives up to the type for me. It was an overreaction.

Will I purchase?
I don't like wearing too much makeup, looking cakey and wearing layers of foundation and also since the colour is a mismatch so the answer is no. HOWEVER, I will test it out again when my skin is almost clear, wondering if I will like it on the second time. I am also hoping that the light colour can be adjusted with coloured powdering. I will also see how my skin will look like if I only applied a layer and finish it off with a concealer. I still have hopes for this cushion to be honest. If it can't be saved then I might just give it away to my mom who have always wanted this cushion too and she is fairer than me, so it might just suit her better.

Will I recommend? Read the counter measurements below;

Finish
For those who likes a dewy finish, you can give this cushion a try. For those who don't and prefer matte finish, then pass this on~

Skin Types
Definitely recommend for dry skin people since this cushion provides moisture. I think that it suits all skin types, providing if you are not sensitive to its ingredients (haven't found its ingredients list yet).

Acne Skin
From my observation, one layer is not enough to cover acne and acne scars, you can see it on my photos above. But if you are alright with putting on layers of foundation then why not~

Where to buy
USD18.50 at BB Cosmetic(direct product link) with free shipping. Use code R0Z1XF6901HN for 10% off.


It was an exciting experience overall, despite the purging. Its always nice to get to try out products that invaded the social media. I also get to learn on how to rescue and try to love this cushion when I failed to fall inlove with it at the first sight. This is just my first impression, I will keep on testing out the product in any ways possible just to fall inlove with it. If you guys want me do an update on my ways on perfecting the cushion or comparison between Laneige Pore Control BB Cushion then let me know~^^

THANK YOU BB COSMETIC♥♥♥

******27th June 2016 UPDATE: my breakouts have calmed since I started using Biore Acne Foam Wash. This time the colour blended well with my skin and do not appear too white since the weather outside is gloomy. I tried to apply the cushion with just one layer this morning. it did cover the light blemishes well, however it already appears cakey with only one layer. I think Imma just give to my mom....

*******27th July 2016 UPDATE: So I gave away the April Skin cushion to my mom last time. This morning I snatched the cushion from her makeup touch and tried it on my face light handedly. Note that at this time my face is clear from stubborn big acne. It appears on my face nicely without being cakey. I also did not press alot of the foundation, a little amount does provide a nice natural looking coverage. Now that my skin is clear, the April Skin cushion looks and feels nicer on a clear skin compared to acne skin where I need alot more coverage than usual. And also, the glow provided looks much better since the texture of my face is clear. I am considering of purchasing this cushion and ONLY use it when my skin is clear, acne-free so it won't look cakey. in conclusion, a little goes a long way if you don't wanna look cakey. Sorry for the inconsistency of the review, it is a first impression review anyway at the above. I like this cushion now! ^^

I also found out that the April Skin Cushion isn't refillable, the cushion in the casing cannot be detached at all.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Friday, June 24, 2016

Just wanted to let my readers know that my skin is currently purging, Aritaum's Bamboo Charcoal Mud Pack's fault(read about the story on my Instagram - link) ㅠㅠ The product that I am going to review happened before the purging, I used the Innisfree pore clay mask a few weeks before using the Aritaum, so my skin looked happy at that time.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review


Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask takes care of 6 kinds of pore concerns;
1. Tighten pores
2. Removes sebum
3. Exfoliates dead skin cells
4. Offers deep cleansing
5. Enhances skin tone
6. Provides cooling effects

It is one of Innisfree's bestselling products and being loved by many since it is featured in their Best Loved Collection along with the Green Tea Seed Serum and Orchid Enriched Cream.


"What it is
6-in-1 Pore care: 
Shrinks pores + Controls sebum + Exfoliates + Deeply cleanses + Brightens tone + Cools 

Winner of 22 Global Beauty Awards 

1. What is the Super volcanic pore mask?

Jeju volcanic clay is made from minerals released by volcanic explosions in Jeju. It's categorized as a preserved alkaline resource and is effective in removing sebum and other impurities. 
(Contains 6,020 mg of Jeju volcanic clay) 

2. Strong removal of sebum thanks to the Super volcanic capsules 
As the capsule bursts, the mask exfoliates and removes dead skin cells. The AHA ingredient chemically exfoliates and smoothes out skin.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask on mah face.

Texture: has a thick cream texture that is not hard to spread.
Scent: no scent.

During application
I applied the mask on my whole face, it dried into a darker grey colour within 10 minutes~ my face does feel tightened but not too much. No irritation during application but it can get itchy as it dries. I did feel a bit of cooling sensation too. No great amount of sebum was detected. It was easy to wash off, I still felt a bit of cooling sensation after wash off.

Results
My pores doesn't look tightened but I remembered my face being clean and sebum-free. I do not notice any difference in it toning my skin tone, but probably after a couple of uses. No breakouts the next day. I'd say that I am pleased with this product since it doesn't give me break outs and leaves my skin feeling clean, though it doesn't do much on tightening the pores. I think that the cooling sensation is perfect for those who are living in a hot temperate country like me. I have an unopened 15ml tub of this one which I've gotten from their Best Loved Collection, I'll be using that up and conclude about my experience with this product in a separate post.

Tip
I saw a comment somewhere that a person is using this clay mask as an overnight treatment for spots. I have an acne prone skin and I am curious to see how it will work! I will be trying that out tonight and share about the results on my Instagram.

My rating
4/5. Hope it would tighten my pores after using it several times!

Will I recommend?
Yes, unless if your skin is sensitive to dryness or the ingredients.

Will I purchase?
Maybe, I will have to finish the small tub of it first then I can decide whether to get them or not.

[REVIEW] My First Skin18 Reviewer's Package

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Skin18 is a US and Hong Kong based Kbeauty onlineshop that is popular with their wide choices of Korean face masks. They carry sheets, characters, steps, hydrogels masks and even face masks boxes to choose according to your interest. Not only that, they are selling Korean skincare products such as essences, serums, moisturizers, sun creams, eye treatments, ampoules and many more and they ship worldwide! Have I mentioned that their character masks are cute?? and amazing thing is that they offer masks freebies that only required you to pay for shipping! Check them out quickly at Skin18.com, you will love whats in from them! Orders above $40 will be entitled to free shipping!


Skin18 were recruiting bloggers from March 2016 to review their reviewers package. Since I love skincare, ofcourse I'd love to contribute in skincare related things. I signed up for the programme and glad to be given the opportunity to try out their products and share my reviews. Different bloggers will get a different package, I am glad that Skin18 is doing this technique because it helps to spread the words about the variety of products that they are bringing. Good job, Skin18!

 I received my first reviewer's package 2 weeks ago which consists of;
Top from left to right;
1. SOC Animal Cutie Mask Pack Anti Wrinkle Collagen (Tiger)
2. Mirum Fresh Fruit Aloe Real Nature Mask Pack

Bottom from left to right;
3. Lomi Lomi Ginkgo 7 Skin Scheduler Tuesday Anti-Wrinkle Mask
4. Luke Collagen Hydrogel Eye Patch (Green)
5. Ben & Sera 15 Days Anti-Wrinkle Taeng Taeng Serum

Skin18 is really considerative for my skin's being, I received 3 anti-wrinkle products to prevent wrinkles hahaha.

Ben & Sera 15 Days Anti-Wrinkle Taeng Taeng Serum Review


This injection looking serum contains 3ml syringe for a 15-days anti-wrinkle project. It is recommended for people above the age of 40 for lifting properties. It is also recommended for people at all ages with concerns over loss of skin elasticity, has lots of dead skin cells, dry skin, sensitive skin and for those who are afraid of dermatologist treatments side effects. This serum claims to retain moisture, restore elasticity and promote skin regeneration with EGF.

My thoughts
Heres what, I was planning to use for it 15-days and wanted to see if there will be any changes on my skin's appearance, though I don't have any wrinkles yet. When I first opened the serum's cap and about to pump the syringe, the serum came out ALL at once, thus immediately emptied the product. I read many other users are having the same problem too.

It annoyed me a bit because it came out alot and I feel wasted. I applied all of it on my face and neck, it took some time for it fully to absorb because its ALOT. The consistency is really serum-like, a bit runny, clear and has no scent. The amount of serum can last me about 3 days of usage, 3ml = 1ml x a day.

I did feel my face being moisturized and hydrated throughout the whole day, I was worried if it would product oil but it didn't. Due to my one-time experience, I can't really comment how it work to improve wrinkles. I won't purchase, I hope the syringe application will be fixed and the amount will be enough to fulfill the 15 days anti-wrinkle project.

Luke Collagen Hydrogel Eye Patch (Green) Review


I did a review of this product on my Instagram. I am just going to copy and paste my review here.

"Haven't been sleeping well for 2 nights now. Eyes were feeling heavy last night, forced myself to remain awake to do exam revision with the help of Luke Collagen Hydrogel Eye Patch that I received from @skin18com its main targets are to firm, hydrate, moisturize the eyes, reduce dark circles and puffiness.

💚 contains Vitamins A, E, C and green tea extract. it definitely smelt like green tea, I kept on for about 20mins and my under eye areas felt softer, refreshed and moisturized right after application. Patches adhered well.

💚 It reduced puffiness a little, but my eyes will still remain puffy no matter what. I rarely/never had any dark circles - so I did not observe any whitening difference. Theres a slight firming sensation after application but there was no drastic firming result.

💚 Its a good moisturizing eye patch overall. The green tea scent is bonus. Would love to use this again! Thanks @skin18com 😘

Mirum Fresh Fruit Aloe Real Nature Mask Pack Review


The functions of this mask is to moisturize skin, provides skin calming, makes skin smooth, fresh and vital. It is recommended for people with dry and tired skin. The mask doesn't contain mineral oil and harmful ingredients.

My thoughts
It has a familiar pleasant aloe scent, mask was wet out of packet but not drippy and there was no remaining essence in the packet. The consistency is essence-like and clear. Its material is an almost thin cotton sheet and adhered well on my skin for about 20mins~

My skin became moisturized and hydrated. I think it calmed my break out. It makes my skin become soft, plump and healthy looking skin, dries a bit dewy. No break outs after using the mask. It is just an okay mask overall. I like the aloe scent and a calming mask so I will purchase in the future!

Direct product link:

Lomi Lomi Ginkgo 7 Skin Scheduler Tuesday Anti-Wrinkle Mask


This mask by Lomi Lomi is a concept mask where you sheetmask with their Skin Scheduler masks according to the day of the week. This mask is enriched with Ginkgo Leaf Extract and skin activators ingredients and nutritional contents in the mask gives excellent skin adhesion and absorption. It carries oil and moisture, blocks toxic substances and gives skin moisture and elasticity. It is suitable for all skin types.

My thoughts
Mask was wet out of packet but not drippy, has somekind of herbally scent, which must be coming from the ginkgo leaf extract. Remaining milky essence in the packet was enough for my arms. Mask has a thin material and looks almost invisible! The fitting is perfect for me though it is small on the nose (which didn't bother me). Due to its thin state, it adhered well, sticks and folds well too. I love thin masks. Scent still lingered while putting on, so if you don't like herbally scent then I'm not recommending this. The scent is okay to me.

My skin became moisturized, hydrated, brightened and it gives a glowy and dewy effect. Cheeks feel softer and elastic too. It took a couple of minutes for the essence to fully sink in, but I'm alright since I like the results. I will purchase this!

Direct product link:

SOC Animal Cutie Mask Pack (Anti Wrinkle Collagen - Tiger)

I was excited about this mask the most due to the cute packaging. CAN it stop to have its cute innocent eyes staring at me?? I am weak for cute baby tiger packaging and also I don't get to sheetmask with character masks often!


Claims and ingredients of the tiger mask. Forgot to put my credit on this photo.


My thoughts
Photo above is taken after application.
When I first took out the mask, it has a papery material which I thought, "shit, this isn't going to adhere well". The fitting looks small but it fits fine for my face. It doesn't stick well on my skin due to its material. Papery masks doesn't adhere well!!! Whats worser is that it has a plastic scent. The clear watery essence in the packet was however generous enough to slap onto my whole body, there was tonsssss and tonssss of it. I didn't keep on the mask for long, no more than 15mins if I remembered.

Noted effects? Moisturized, hydrated, soft and elastic skin, atleast the effects are good so I'm forgiving this mask, haha. Thank godness I have no breakouts the next day. It is a deceiving mask for me, the looks of it is cute, but it turned out meh. I won't purchase because I hate papery mask material in general.

Mask selfie with tiger character mask~ look at how it doesn't stick well on the skin.

[REVIEW] Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream + GIVEAWAY

Monday, June 20, 2016

*GIVEAWAY details is at end of post! Do keep on reading!^^


Taken from Wishtrend

Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream Review


I purchased this eye cream around April 2016, so I've been using this product for 2 months now. HERE is the link to my haul that came along with this eye cream. The tube size is 15ml while the tub size is 25ml. I bought it for only USD4.14 at Roseroseshop.


Ingredients list and direction of use. Click to enlarge image.


Packaging features a squeezable tube and a twist cap.


I squeezed out a pea-size amount for both of my eyes. The consistency is white, has a light lotion feel and doesn't have any scent.


It absorbed fully and quickly with 'windshield method' massage and doesn't leave any white subsidiaries. When I first used it, it felt moisturizing, but after 2 months of usage, I feel that it does not do anything to my eye areas.

Here are the effetcs on me in-relating to its claims;

1. Natural Glowing Effect by 80% Filtered Snail Mucus - I don't feel my eye areas are glowing, which I hope it would.

2. EGF (Epithelial Cell Growing Factor) for Tight and White eye skin - nah, I don't feel any tightening nor whitening. I rarely have cases of dark circles so I cannot comment on this. However, I think it prevents/controls formation of dark circles? Been using it for 2 months and haven't had any dark circles until now, haha.

3. Adenosine for wrinkle improvement - I don't have wrinkles so I have no say about this. Similar to above statement, I've been using this product for 2 months and haven't had any wrinkles development until now, so maybe it prevents/controls it.

4. Whitening Care with Niacinamide - nah.

5. Minimize stimulus on skin - not sure what it meant by this.

6. Provides moisture & form a moist protective layer - I don't feel it being moisturized nor having a moisture barrier.

7. Fast absorption with tight texture - Yes, it absorbs easily.

Overall, it only achieves 1 out of its 7 promised claims. The eye cream feels like a dud, but thank godness it doesn't give any irritation to my eye areas. I am just going to finish up the eye cream as for now.

My rating
2/5

Will I recommend?
Yes, I might work on other individuals

Will I repurchase?
No. In fact, I just ordered Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream from Beautynetkorea. I hope it does better than this eye cream.

Where to purchase
USD4.14(15ml)/USD10.83(25ml) with free shipping at Roseroseshop
USD14.27(25ml size) with free shipping at W2beauty

[REVIEW] Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist & Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch

Saturday, June 18, 2016

*Products below are provided to me by Q-depot.com


Q-depot is a Hong Kong based Kbeauty onlineshop that offers over 30+ Korean brands such as Banilla Co., Mizon, Tony Moly, The Face Shop, Dr. Jart, SNP, Hera, Iope, Innisfree & many more. Whats great about them is that they offer free shipping with orders above $49 and often have sales for up to 50% OFF on featured brands!

The intended product that was given to me is the Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Mist, the Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch comes as an extra gift, who doesn't love to receive extras?

The Pocket Bunny actually already leaked while I was unwrapping its bubble wrap, I think the lid was not shut tightly. I was left with half of its content, it is alright as I can still manage to do reviews on it, however I feel a bit upset because of the wasted amount :(

Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist Review



Packaging:
It is made out of plastic overall. I love pink color, the font, the blushing bunny, the head and body of this packaging..everything about this Bunny Mist is just CUTE and ADORABLE.



Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Chok Chok Mist
The product will expire 12 months after opening. The bottle holds 60ml of the product. I am left with approx 30ml due to leaking.



Product was manufactured in 26th Dec 2014. I get a little 'eeky' when products' MFG date was dated 2 years ago...but thank Godness it doesn't break me out.



The head is the cap where you take it off to reveal the spray mist.
headless bunny

DESCRIPTION
Cute as a bunny, but as strong as an ox, this moisturizing finishing spray does so much more than just set makeup in place. Ideal for balancing dry and combination skin, this wonder bunny neutralizes dry spots with a moisture blast, boosts elasticity with natural fruit extracts, and sooths irritated skin with aloe vera. This lightly scented mist adds an instant healthy glow with just a quick spritz, and is as mild and gentle as you would expect from its cottontail namesake.

HOW TO USE

I have no problem with spraying out the mist.It sprays well and on the above picture, I sprayed once on my hand.

Scent
Smells fruity! The scent is light and not overwhelming. I love the scent, I can even use it as a body mist hahahaha.



Results
The mist absorbs fully onto the skin with massage. It dries matte and immediately left my skin feeling smooth, soft and moisturized. The scent lingered but I think it won't be for long. Since it made my skin softer, I think that it improves elasticity of my skin too. I am not sure if it is soothing but it doesn't break me out the next day.

I haven't tested out how well it can set makeup. My makeup is usually long lasting with Laneige BB Cushion foundation, haha.

Pros +
- Moisutirizing
- Portable
- Makes skin softer, silky and smoother
- Improves skin elasticity
- Nice fruity scent
- No breakouts
- CUTE packaging

Cons -

Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch Review



The packaging of this too is FREAKIN CUTE! The ducks are cute! The duck cartoons seem to be telling that your lips will become dull to red and luscious after using the lip patch, haha.



Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch claims to make your lips smooth, soft and kissable. Ingredients and directions of use are stated in the photo above. This too was manufactured in 2014.



The lip patch above is taken after the application. The lip patch has a slight alcohol + rubber-ish scent, has a hydrogel consistency which didn't adhere well on my lips, it doesn't stick well on my skin either. It slips off easily, the application will be made easier if I laid down. I am not sure how long I had it on, I think it was no more than 10 minutes, I stopped because it dropped on my feet (I was sitting down during the application), its just disgusting to put it back on, hahaha.

Results
My lips did feel smoother and soft. It was moisturizing as well, but not sure if became kissable though, haha. I also felt a bit of plumping effect, I think it can also be used as a lip primer before applying lip makeup. There was no irritation around my lips-to-mouth areas after application. The results are nice but I don't really like the scent and its non-adhesive being.

Pros +
- Lips turned soft and smoother
- Moisturizing

Cons -
- Smelt alcohol-ish
- Doesn't stick well on lips

My rating
2/5

Will I recommend?
Yes, just make sure to lie down during application

Will I purchase?
No
