Innisfree Green Tea Pure Body Lotion

이니스프리 그린티 퓨어 바디로션

300 mL, 12000 won

This is one of my favourite body lotions!!
It's suitable for any time of the year since it provides hydration.
Lots of people only use skincare on the face and totally forgot about the body
The body is as important as the face!!
The body has wrinkles too! Esp the belly area...

The Innisfree Green Tea Pure Body Lotion is just FANTASTIC!!
I usually apply it after shower
it has a cooling effect!

Light green runny gel that's absorb easily and feels refreshing
My legs are quite dry, after I apply this on, the fine lines became invisible
green tea also has anti-oxidant effects
consists of 92% natural ingredients such as green tea, aloe vera extracts
it doesn't smell like green tea at all, it smells like a men's cologne

I usually use it 3-4 days in a row and my legs feel completed hydrated

It contains mint & green tea which gives my scalp a fresh feeling

This is to be used as a treatment, I treat it like a hair mask
Leave it on for 5-7 mins then rinse

As soon as I am done showering, I rinse it off
Compared to other economic brands, the quality of this treatment is way better!!

Innisfree Mint Green Tea Shampoo

300mL, 6000 won

This is my favourite favourite shampoo!!
The previous size was 400 mL, 5000 won
Now the size decreased by 100mL and cost went up by 1000 won

The first time I used it.. 
OMG... the mint gives me a super relaxing feeling and my scalp immediately becomes softened and relaxed!! 

This is an anti-danfruff shampoo...
It contains mint & green tea which refreshes your scalp
My hair has always been oily and contains dandruff....
Finding a good shampoo has always been a problem...
I have tried Head & Shoulder, Herbal Essence Anti-dandruf Shampoo which helps a bit...
But the Innisfree Mint Green Tea Shampoo did reduced my dandruffs significantly  
If I hadn't listened to the salesperson, I would regret for sure!!!

2 pumps is good enough if you had long and lots of hair

Mioggi HexAqua Plus Luminous Hydrator & Mioggi Hex Idealist Smoothing Cover BB Cream

I purchased this set from HK for $398 HKD.

Mioggi HexAqua Plus Luminous Hydrator can be used as a primer or a light moisturizer to give your skin hydration. If you pat it, you will see water drops. 
Using a light gel or hydrator helps your make up stay on longer.
You will use this after your have applied your UV protector.
However, I find that this is the same stuff as my favourite hand cream, Organic Olive Water Drop Essence Hand Cream
Considering it's similar stuff, this is quite expensive....

The Mioggi Hex Idealist Smoothing Cover BB Cream gives a natural (light coverage).
If you have dark eye circles, dark spots or acne scars, please use a concealer
This BB cream can only cover ~30%

Color is a bit grey
It doesn't have oil control and my T-zone shines after a few hours.


I recommend following with a loose powder
Somehow this BB cream doesn't last too long on the face... maybe because coverage is so light?

Overall, I am not too happy with this set.

It's Skin Collagen Eye Mask

1000 won/pack

The eye mask is stored in a plastic shell with 2 pieces. 
There's a paper layer and plastic layer, you put the PAPER layer on your eyes.
The first time I tried it, for some reason I put the plastic layer on and.... ha ha
You put it under your eye in the eye bag area.
Some people like to cut it in half and put the top half on the upper eye area, lower half on the lower eye area.

Collagen is an ingredient that is supposed to provide elasticity to the skin. However, studies have shown that since collagen molecules are so big, they cannot penetrate to the bottom layer of the skin. There has been no evidence to suggest that using collagen in cosmetics have direct influence on the production of collagen in skin.

Therefore.... what does it tell you?
Besides providing hydration, this mask doesn't do anything else....

Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream

Usually eye creams are ~15mL in size, but this one is 25g.
I bought it in THE FACE SHOP in Canada for $7 CAD!!
That was on Boxing Day =)

The Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream helps to whiten, brighten and reduce wrinkles in the eye area.

There are a few major ingredients that provides the effects...
Snail secretion filtrate - contains antioxidants and proteins which aid in wound healing and acne scars
Hyaluronic acid - hydrates and maintains water in your skin
Niacinamide - lightens hyperpigmentation
Meadowfoam seed oil - moisturizes and strengthens the skin barrier

The texture is a bit sticky, this applies to all "Snail" products...
but when you apply it on your skin, it absorbs fast.
Take a dab and pat it on the upper and lower part of your eyes
Do not put anything around 0.5cm of the eye area
After using this eye cream for ~6 weeks, I start to see fine lines disappearing
For major wrinkles, please don't expect this eye cream can make them go away

My eye area also brightened up a bit, it seems to have more.. radiance! 
To keep seeing the effect, you have to use it on a daily basis

The problem with this eye cream is that once you started using it, you must use it till it's finished...
I was about half done, then I went to try something else... 
after several weeks, I came back to this product and it starts to get dried up
texture was thicker than before...
at the end it got to a point that I had to throw it away...
