COSRX has stayed a bit under the radar on this blog and unrightfully so. I’ve been using this Korean brand religiously since early 2016 and it’s safe to say I’ve tried about 80% of the products they have launched since. You could say I’m a big fan of this minimal brand so it was about time for a review! One of their products that intrigued me from day one was their Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, which contains a whopping 96% of snail secretion! If the thought of snail mucin repulses you, hear me out…
On my wish list for the longest time and finally ready to review: the Benton Snail Bee High Content line. If the thought of snail secretion sounds disgusting, I’m here to break it to you: this ingredient changed my life for the better and I couldn’t imagine my skin care routine without it! The Snail Bee lines comes in a handful of products and I’ll be reviewing 3 of them today.
It’s been 5 years since Garnier released their Micellar Water that would forever erase my need to cross the border and stock up on the og Bioderma micellar cleansing water. At a fraction of the price, this easy-to-get-ahold-of cleansing water from Garnier would forever change the makeup removing routine of many.
Today, Garnier has released a lot of similar products and I will be investigating if any of them are worth the purchase or just me-too products. (Fyi: this is an actual marketing term, not to be confused with #metoo)
3 Times I’ve been to Japan. 3 Times I’ve stood at the duty free counter with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence in my hands and ended up leaving without it. Priced at € 150 for 150 ml, it’s just so expensive and I just couldn’t flash the cash after already buying a ton of stuff during each trip. Luckily there’s Missha to save the day with their own dupe that is three times less expensive; the Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Intensive (150 ml).
Not sure if I’ve shared this information before, but I’m a bit of a chocoholic. Not a day goes by without me stuffing my face with this sweet cocoa goodness. L’Oréal thought it might be a good idea to create a chocolate-inspired product that even smells like chocolate, minus the calories. Meet the L’Oréal Les Chocolats Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick!
