I purchased these products several months ago before leaving Japan to return to my country during the winter break. I got it through an Amazon seller based in Korea. At that time I was getting more sucked in into the skincare world (specifically Korea’s) and found out more about different brands. This road-shop brand particularly intrigued me and made me purchase several things that were very popular in the skincare world.
This review is just a short mini one because I believe more in-depth and detailed reviews are out there. This post is about how the product works and what I think about it. Different people may have different results with these products.
Well, this is not a skincare product. But this loose setting powder has the functionality of controlling your skin sebum. It will give you a matte finish if applied on the top of your makeup, which is something that I aim for. I love the cute little puff it came with. So soft. This powder can maintain your skin from producing excess sebum for several hours. In my case, it held off for around 4~5 hours. After that my T-zone will start to get oily again and I’ll have to reapply it.
I’m guessing most of the skincare lovers know this product since everyone loves it. Despite being a clay mask, it doesn’t get dry enough when you leave it on so it’s really easy to rinse off. This product is targeted to fix your pore concerns. I notice that it kinda minimizes the appearance of the pores on my nose (I have gigantic pores), so I guess I could understand why it was a cult favorite. I came to fall in love with this product after several uses. 😀
I wasn’t originally going to purchase this product because it was quite on the pricier side. However, winter in Japan has somehow dried my skin and I watched several youtube videos that stated this was nice for hydrating your skin as well, so I gave it a try. I didn’t realize it contained alcohol in the first place, but thankfully my skin is OK with this product after several uses. It reacts a bit on the first few applications, making my skin a bit red, but afterward, it’s fine.
This serum absorbs really fast to your skin because of the alcohol, but it doesn’t dry my skin either. Applying moisturizer afterward works to keep my skin moisturized for the rest of the day.
Another non-skincare product, but I came to love it because it works so much better than my old primer. My old one was Tony Moly’s Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm (long name, I know), which dried my skin really bad to the point of making my cheek area look really flaky. Thankfully, this one from Innisfree does not accentuate my flaky skin. It keeps my makeup for a longer time as well (this depends on what you use) and makes my skin surface smooth.
