Review: Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

17. September 2018


I’m always very attracted towards skincare products containing milk, probably due to the picture in my head of the famous ancient Cleopatra bathing in milk for her beautifying rituals. The Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule was very interesting in several points: first of all, I haven’t used any products from this Korean beauty brand yet, second because of the milk protein ingredient, and lastly, because it is a sleeping mask and I love using sleeping masks! Thanks to for providing me with this product for reviewing.

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

Cellnco is a Korean brand which might be very new and unknown to many people. The concept of the brand is tackling pollution-related premature aging of the skin. The brand produced products for famous brands like Estée Lauder, Lancôme, and Skyn Iceland for 15 years before they started their own cosmetics brand. The brand is also one of the brands focussing on botanical extracts and being free from harmful chemicals. 

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

The Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule is one of five antioxidant-rich ampoules of their skincare range. It’s a sleeping mask ampoule promoting skin repair during night-time featuring milk protein as the key ingredient. As we all know, our skin is most active during sleeping and the body and also our skin is regenerating during this time. Any skincare applied on our skin during sleeping will be absorbed more thoroughly and be more beneficial.

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

Milk Protein in Skincare

Milk protein is the key ingredient of the Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule as the name already suggests. Hydrolyzed milk protein, which is usually used in skincare, has a complete amino acid content and is therefore very nourishing. Also, it is very low in toxins, which makes it perfect for dry and sensitive skin types. The protein has healing, repairing, and restructuring properties for body and hair.

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule is a sleeping mask and thus it is used best for your night-time skincare regimen. The product is paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, silicon-free, and EU-allergen-free. The full ingredients are listed on SkinCarisma and you can check for them >>here<<.

Water, Milk Protein, 1,2-Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Polyacrylate-13, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Polysorbate 80, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Xanthan Gum, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Acorus Calamus Root Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Morus Alba Leaf Extract, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Cornus Officinalis Fruit Extract, Lycium Chinense Fruit Extract, Polygonatum Odoratum Extract, Ganoderma Lucidum (Mushroom) Stem Extract, Zea Mays (Corn) Kernel Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Monarda Didyma Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower/Leaf Extract, Honey Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

You can already spot all the botanical extracts in the list, eg. ginseng, chamomille, rice, lavender, rosemary, camellia… but also moisturizing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin, and even honey extract!

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

The Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule has a firm gel texture and white color. you only need a little for your face as it melts and distributes nicely upon application. Despite the firm gel texture it is very lightweight once applied and leaves a refreshing and moist feeling. Also, this sleeping mask ampoule is not sticky or heavy like other sleeping masks. It’s no problem to use another night cream on top of it.

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

This Sleeping Mask Ampoule absorbs very quickly and leaves really no trace, simply a very pleasant and refreshing scent. I can imagine that people who do not like heaviness or films, especially not during nights, will love this sleeping mask ampoule because it doesn’t leave your skin with a trace. I have this ampoule at my bed-side and usually, on lazy nights when I only manage to take of makeup this is the only product I use additionally.

Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule

The Cellnco Anti Pollution Refreshing Milk Sleeping Mask Ampoule retails for 28 US$ on Beautytap. You can use the code berries15 for 15% off non-sale items!

Review: Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

19. January 2018


By now it is no news that I love the brand Klairs. And of course, I’m always excited to test and review new products from the brand. Today I have a review for one of the newer products from the brand, the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask. I received this product from Wishtrend for reviewing purpose. This mask targets brightening the complexion and has anti-aging benefits and can be used during day or night.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

Klairs is a Korean brand which is eco-friendly, producing products which are animal-testing-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, artificial-color-free and recently they are vegan, too. Their products address people with sensitive skin and people who want to moisturize their skin. I reviewed some of their products before, like the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum (repurchased that one 3 times already!) or the Klairs Midnight Blue Cream, which both convinced me in their effects. I also love the Klairs Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner, which has been updated and improved by now, too. Their saying “Simple but Enough” really nails it and I think that many people will agree in that point with me.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

Why Vitamin E?

Vitamin E, with the chemical name Tocopherol, has a lot of benefits for our body. But apart from the benefits it has when digested, it also is of good use when applied on our skin. Tocopherol is skin conditioning, has anti-oxidant properties, and reduced the skin’s water loss… probably, there are even more effects. Another advantage of Tocopherol is, that it protects other ingredients from oxidizing, and thus is a perfect combination to be used with oils to keep them from going bad. It is also great in combination with Vitamin C, since the two vitamins enhance each others properties, and Vitamin C stays stable for a longer time.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

Getting back to the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask: First of all, I love the holographic packaging design, which fits to the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum. The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask comes in a jar, and of course includes a spatula for taking out the product from the jar. The jar has a volume of 90 ml. The cardboard box contains all the necessary information in Korean and English and also a full ingredients list:

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carrageenan, Gellan Gum, Betaine, Algin, Mannan, Ceramide NP, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Chlorphenesin, Arginine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Centella Asiatica Extract, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Salicornia Herbacea Extract, Phragmites Communis Extract, Adenosine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil

If you are interested in the benefits of the single ingredients, I can recommend you to check out SkinCarisma. They really have a great cosmetics analysis tool, and I started to prefer this over COSDNA (but COSDNA is still great for quick use). There are several ingredients to point out: Niacinamide has brightening properties, but it also has anti-aging benefits. Also Adenosine and Ceramides have anti-aging properties, and are great in combination with Niacinamide. Cenetlla Asiatica Extract promotes wound healing and can be spotted as well. Additionally, you will find a bunch of other plant-based ingredients and oils. The plant-based oils are a critical point for sensitive skintypes though, so if you know that you react to any of these oils make sure to patch test the product before using it on your face.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

Maybe you are wondering, why I haven’t talk about the Vitamin E yet. If you look at the ingredients list again, you see that one of the first ingredients mentioned is Tocopheryl Acetate. Tocopherol is Vitamin E, that makes Tocopheryl Acetate a derivate. When a vitamin derivate is delivered inside our body it will be transformed to the vitamin. Many cosmetics products use Tocopheryl Acetate, because Tocopherol is not stable, but the derivate is and thus has a longer shelf-life. It also has the same skin conditioning properties as Tocopherol, but it doesn’t have the anti-oxidative properties. In order to have anti-oxidative properties it has to be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin. In watery solutions 50% of the Tocopheryl Acetate absorbs into the skin, in oily solutions it is probably only 5%. The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask is rich in oily ingredients and also in the description of the product on Wishtrend is says that the Vitamin E is coated in oil. That would mean that the amount of Tocopheryl Acetate that is delivered inside the skin and can be transformed into Tocopherol and acts anti-oxidative is only very low.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

However, the consistency of the mask is really interesting. It has the so-called “shape-memory” properties. Once you spoon out a bit of the jelly, or pudding-like cream the surface of the cream will go back to a smooth and even surface after few minutes. The white cream really reminds me of custard-cream or jello. Once you start rubbing it emulsifies into a gel-like consistency, feeling moist and cooling. Once rubbed into the skin you will see the oils of the product leaving a nice glow. Also, a little of the product goes a long way, so start out with fewer and add some more if you feel necessary.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

I used the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask as sleeping mask mainly. It feels nice when applied and I love the consistency of the “shape-memory” cream. I could observe the brightening effects that the cream has, due to the niacinamide. It also feels really moisturizing and makes the skin feel nice and smooth on the next morning.

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

My final verdict for this cream is, that I love the application and feeling of the cream. I can see some positive effects of the cream, like brighteining and moisturizing. I’m not convinced fully about the Tocopheryl Acetate, to be honest. It has of course benefits for the skin, like skin conditioning, but I doubt that a lot of the derivate will be incorporated into the skin to be turned into Vitamin E and show its anti-oxidative properties. Of course, I’m not a cosmetics expert, and if you know any more information on that point, I’d be glad to hear about it.

If you are curious about the product yourself you can get it for 27.00 US$ from Wishtrend. Keep in mind the friend-referral program from Wishtrend: You can receive a 5 Us$ referral coupon if you use my invitation code 17939205 upon registration and you’ll receive this voucher immediately. There will be a specific field in your registration form called “friends invitation program” where you can put the code mentioned above.

You can additionally use the coupon WISHJAN05 for 5% off in January. The coupon code is stackable, by the way!

Review: Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

6. April 2017

Okay, I admit at that point that I LOVE the Kicho Sheep Oil Cream I reviewed previously and since then I’ve wanted to lay my hand on this Kicho Camellia Sleeping Pack. Can you imagine how I freaked out when I saw that I would receive the sleeping pack from BNTnews  for reviewing purpose?! Oh yes, that big smile on my face the whole day! Expectations were high so let’s see if the sleeping pack hold up to them:

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

Kicho cosmetics is a Korean brand and has the saying “We provide pure nature greatness to your skin”. I read so many reviews on their products, especially about the sheep oil cream, and I was not dissapointed. First of all, I love the design of the packaging of the Kicho products. It was already unbelieveably pretty for the cream and here we go again with this breathtaking packaging design! It looks elegant and feminine on the same time with a beautiful flower printing. The cardboard box looks like a present and it is not only pretty from the outside, but even inside the box the beauty continues:

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

Inside you will find the tube of the sleeping pack and a brush. The tube has the same flower illustration as the cardboard box, and all of these flowers are combined with golden colors which makes everything even prettier. Inside the lid you will find the product description, which is written in Korean and at least with English ingredients list. The Kicho Camellia Sleeping Pack is an overnight mask containing Lanolin (“sheep oil”), rose water, fermented black ginseng extract and Camellia Japonica oil (1000mg) as main ingredients. It is also worth to mention that the sleeping pack contains Shea Butter and Hyaluronic Acid, and thus seems to be a great moisturizer already from the ingredients. You can check the full ingredients via COSDNA: Most of the ingredients are green labelled but there are a few potential irritants, too, but nothing really worth to mention.

Water, Glycerin, Lanolin Oil, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Dimenthicone, Petrolatum, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Sodium Hyaluronate, Camellia Japonica Seed OIl (1,000mg), Dimenthicone/Vinyl Dimenthicone Crosspolymer, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sorbitan Stearate, Panaz Ginseng Root Extract, Zea Mays (Corn) Kernel Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Ammonium Acryloyldimethylataurate/VP Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolyer, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Allantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Totarol, Decylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Parfum, Disodium EDTA, Magnolia Kobus Bark Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Propolis Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower/Leaf Extract, Thujopsis Dolabrata Branch Extract, BHT, CI 19140, CI 15985, CI 16185, CI 42090.

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

I want to let you know some more about Lanolin at this point, which is a superb ingredient for dry skintypes:


Lanolin is also called wool wax and is produced by the sebaceous glands of sheep to protect their wool from getting wet and protects the sheep from climate and weather. Actually, it is obtained by cleaning the obtained freshly shorn wool from sheep, so you do not need to fear that animals are harmed for obtaining lanolin and the name sheep oil is a bit misleading here because one thinks of horse oil directly. Also, as you might have thought first, Lanolin is not a new fancy ingredient but has been used for more than hundred years and cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. Also, thinking of Lanolin as fat is also not correct, because it lacks glycerides, but contains of sterol esters instead. By hydrolizing lanolin you will obtain lanolin alcohols, which are rich in cholesterol, and lanolin acids. 40 % of the lanolin acids are AHA’s (alpha hydroxy acids)! Also, studies have shown that Lanolin has chemical and physical similarities to human stratum corneum (the skin layer you actually see when looking at your skin) lipids. These lipids regulate the hydration state of your skin. So lanolin is great to protect your skin from water-loss and it also is a great skin softener. Also, since it has semiocclusive properties your skin can still breath. And on top of that the healing properties of lanolin are great and it helps to recover rough and dry, itching and cracking skin better than glycerin or petroleum. Nevertheless, it still might be that you react allergic to lanolin, so be sure to patch test products before using them.

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

The Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack is an overnight mask that has to be applied before going to bed. In the next morning you wash your face with lukewarm water and will be able to see the results. The Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack comes in a large tube containing 100 ml. This is quite a size and I guess it will last for a long time, until it is used up. If the product comes in a value set like here, it comes together with a brush to apply the pack on your face. I’m simply in love with the design of the tube already *_*

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

The brush is very soft and has the perfect size to use it for covering your face. I love the golden handle of the brush and how it seems to be a good quality brush. It makes it easy to apply a thin layer on the face, and since the bristles are so soft they won’t irritate your skin.

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

The sleeping pack itself is a thick yellow-ish colored cream with a flowery, rosy scent. It spreads nicely and builds a moist and glowy layer on the skin leaving the skin nourished. You will feel almost nothing of the cream because it is super light, despite containing so many nourishing ingredients.

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

The Kicho Camellia Sleeping Pack is designed to moistzurize, sooth and protect the skin from toxins. After applying it on my skin I discovered that my skin looked calm and smooth the next morning. What I love especially is, that the texture is not sticky. So it is super comfortable to sleep with. Also, it is surprising that a thin layer already does a super great job. It seems even though using a small amount there are plenty of nutrients inside this pack.

Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack

I’m SO happy that the Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack is exactly how I imagined it to be: moisturizing, calming, nourishing…with a luxurious scent and beautiful packaging! Definitely recommend you to give it a try! You can get it as value pack like here, together with a brush, or only the pack. It retails for 53 US$ or 35 US$, respectively from the official Kicho web page. But it is also available on amazon here (it is also the official store from Kicho). Did you try any products from Kicho already? Do you use Lanolin containing skincare products?

This product was provided to me by BNTnews for reviewing. Don’t forget to visit the other BNTGirls and check out their reviews for the March BNT Beauty Box. You can find my previous reviews for BNTnews >>here<<. And visit BNTnews for the latest Korean news and trends:

Review: From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack

31. August 2015

I’m really happy about writing this review, because I really like the From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack. This product was kindly sponsored by Beauteque, online retailer of Asian cosmetics. Some of you might have seen the bunch of products I selected from them for reviewing on my Instagram account :) I really like using sleeping mask, since I love the feeling of my skin on the next day after using these kind of masks. Usually sleeping masks or packs boost your skin over night with extra moisture or nutrition. Since the skin absorbs and works more efficiently during night such products are always a great idea.

From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack

From Nature‘s motto is “messanger from nature’s power”, and therefore this Korean brand uses natural ingredients in their cosmetic products. eChoice is a line by From Nature, and the From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack is what I’m reviewing here today. According to the description, this sleeping mask “infused with jasmine, rose, chamomile, green tea, and white tea extracts, boosts its oriental tea complex that works to deliver deep nutrition, moisture, and soothing effect overnight.” The From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack “creates moisturizing, transparent, illuminating, and water-based  bright, resilient, luminous skin.” This sounds really promising for a sleeping pack.

From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack

The sleeping pack line from From Nature eChoice comes in two choices: the From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack and the From Nature eChoice Fermented Beans Sleeping Pack. Beauteque is currently only offering the From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack. The packaging of the plastic tube containing 70 g is simple, but it shows the image of herbs and a bowl of tea (probably). The description on the tube of the From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack is in Korean only, but you find the instructions and the short description on Beautque, too. The ingredients of this sleeping mask are listed on COSDNA, and the list is neither long, nor harmful. Most of the ingredients are plant extracts from jasmine, rose, green tea, white tea, and chamomile. If you know about reacting to any of these ingredients you should be careful when using this sleeping mask though. apart from these the key ingredient here is the Lactobacillus Ferment, which was the main reason for me to try this sleeping msk. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial activity when applied in concentrations of 5% or more. It has skin coditioning properties, too. So this fermented oriental tea complex from the plant extracts mentioned above has a concetration of 100ppm, as stated on the packaging.

From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack

The From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack has a light and almost transparent gel texture. The scent is very pleasant and lingers on the skin. It reminds me of the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack in its structure and scent and feel on the skin. It is very waterful/moisturizing when blended on the skin, too. In order to use it you apply a proper amount to your face as last step of your skincare before you go to sleep. Next morning, you wash it off with lukewarm water. After using this the skin feels very soft and nice.

From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack

In my opinion, the From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack is a great option for those who find the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack too expensive. The From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Mask does a good job in moisturizing and smoothening the skin over night and costs only 12.00 US$ at Beauteque. It has a very relaxing scent, too! Also, if you like fermented ingredients the From Nature eChoice Fermented Tea Sleeping Pack is a really recommendable product to try.

Review: Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit

3. July 2014


I received this Innisfree’s Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit a while back during a giveaway and I was very happy about it. Innisfree’s Green Tea line is often talked about within the blogger communitiy and since green tea is a very beneficial ingredient I was especially curious how this would work, especially as a mini version of the complete skincare line, including toner, emulsion, cream, essence and sleeping pack. These kits are always a great way to test a special line if it works with your skin or doesn’t. Here is my impression on these products:

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit 1

Innisfree is an eco-friendly korean skincare and makeup brand focusing on natural ingredients and recycle packaging. The design of their products is simply and neat and nicely reflects the ideology of the brand. The Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit is a 4-free product, that means that it is free of 4 commonly used ingredients, which are not beneficial, most likely parabens, etc. I couldn’t find any english ingredients list, so I don’t have the exact information for you, unfortunately.

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit 2

Nevertheless, the key ingredient in this line is Jeju Green Tea. On Innisfree’s official web page you’ll find the following description:

“Green Tea Pure Line with the clean and clear moisture of 100% Jeju Organic Green Tea Water: The vitality and condensed moisture of green tea grown on the organic green tea field of the pure island of Jeju, refine the skin for clarity and suppleness.”

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit 3

As I stated above, the kit constists of the Innisfree Green Tea Pure Skin (toner), Innisfree Green Tea Pure lotion (emulsion), Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cream, Innisfree Green Tea Pure Sleeping Pack and Innisfree Green Tea Pure Seed Serum. I used the items for my daily routine as this: toner, emulsion, cream. During my night routine I used: toner, serum, emulsion, sleeping pack. Of course it depends on your skintype how your routine works best. It may be, that cream and emulsion are to much for oily skin for example. My skin is rather dry, so I used emulsion and cream together.

Let’s start with the toner and the emulsion.

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit 5

These two items come in two miniature plastic bottles, as do also the full size products. The plastic appears sturdy. The Innisfree Green Tea Pure Skin is a gel-type clear toner. It contains tiny particles which disolve while applying onto the skin. This makes it feel grainy during the application first. But the toner absorbs quickly and since the grains dissolve the only thing which lingers is the scent of green-tea mixed with some fruity/flowery scent. It is a nice scent, but if you don’t like scents at all, I wouldn’t recommend you this line at all. In principle all the products have this scent.

The Innisfree Green Tea Pure Lotion is a milky emulsion, which absorbs really fast into the skin. It is not sticky and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling. The skin feels instantly smooth and firmer. It has the same scent as the toner.

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cream:

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit 6

The Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cream also contains some grains, but in contrast to the grains in the toner, you don’t feel these on your skin. This cream is a good moisturizer and feels very refreshing. In contrast to the emulsion, the cream takes a bit more to absorb, but once it is absorbed, it isn’t sticky either. The cream gives you really that glow you get after being well moisturized. The deluxe sample comes in a mini jar, which is really nice.

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Seed Serum

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit 4

The Green Tea Pure Seed Serum is a geltype serum, which is lightly milky. The consistency is thicker than of the toner. After it absorbs it is not sticky at all. It feels like adding some moisture, but not a lot (so this might be good for combination/oily skin?). Again, it has the same green-tea scent of the other products. The set included 6 of these ampoules. Each ampoule was for one usage only. The other products of the kit are more often usable, so it would have been nice, if the set included also more of these serum ampoules. The fullsize product comes in a pump bottle.


The last product is the Innisfree Green Tea Pure Sleeping Pack

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit 7

The sleeping pack in this kit comes in a tube (the fullsize product comes in a jar). Also here, we have tiny beads. The beads dissolve while massaging the pack into your skin. The sleeping pack doesn’t absorb quickly, but it takes some time, but since you put it on before sleeping it doesn’t matter after all. The skin feels a bit sticky, too, but this is also a minor problem for a sleeping mask. On the next day the skin feels soft and refreshed. Also here, I really like the green tea scent, especially before going to bed. It is so relaxing.

My total impression about Innisfree Green Tea Pure Line is quite positive. My favourite products are the sleeping pack and surprisingly the emulsion. I’m rarely using emulsion during my skincare routine, only if I’m testing a specific skincare line as a whole like now. This emulsion made my skin so soft and firm, I really enjoyed using it ♥ The scent is also nice if you like green-tea scents. That’s why I like the sleeping pack aswell. It is so relaxing to use. Most important, none of the products gave me any breakouts or irritations :)

Also, Innisfree refreshed their Green Tea Line. The line is now divided into Green Tea Fresh (oily skin), Green Tea Balancing (normal/combination skin) and Green Tea Moisture (dry skin), which is a good idea. I think the former line will resemble most likely the  new balancing line. I would suggest you to browse through W2Beauty for all the products




Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Pack

26. March 2013
Hello ♥
As you might have read, I purchased a sample-sized jar of  Laneige Water Sleeping Pack with my previous ebay haul. I’m still looking for a good night cream and until now I just used the same moisturizing creams I used during daytime in the night. I have the feeling that I should change this habit soon and put on some more nourishing creams during the night.
Now, I tested  Laneige Water Sleeping Pack, a gel-cream to use one to two times a week during night.

Here is the description from the official site of Laneige:

Light gel-type texture provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation.
Product benefits: 
Night time skin transmission (permeability) shows higher rate than the one in the day time.
Applying it right before sleep time, the best state for the skin transmission according to the skin circadian rhythm, maximizes the efficiency of overnight water supply.
The function of skin remarkably declines in the night time. Enriched with Beta-glucan, Water Sleeping Pack_EX deeply hydrates fatigue and dry skin while Ceramide SLN formula strengthens the skin barrier.
With containing the Snow Water, it helps to keep your skin look more crystal clear and vitalized.
– Antioxidant effect of Hunza Apricot Extracts helps brighten skin tone evenly by removing harmful oxygen and purifying skin.
– Recovering from Chestnuts promotes turnovers of horny layers to remove dead cells away for vigorous water supply and sleek skin texture. 
– An aromatic essence compound exclusively developed by AMOREPACIFIC, Sleepscent™(Patent application No. 10-2009-0043726), helps to relax your mind and body and derive for a good sleep. A good sleep effect allowing sufficient relaxation eventually reinforces skin restoration for healthier skin condition. Essential oils from Orange Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood etc. are contained in the Sleepscent™. 
– Light gel-type texture without stickiness but moisture leaves you a comfortable sleep.
How to use:
1. In the evening, follow the face relaxing massage after applying skin refiner and emulsion after face wash.
2. After taking appropriate amount(2.5cm in diameter recommended), mark on nose tip,cheeks,forehead, and chin areas, and feel the scent for about 3 seconds. * Relax your body and mind through the Sleepscent™.
3. Gently spread over the face from inner part to outer part along the skin texture. 

4. Go to sleep after absorption without rinsing off. (Wash face in the next morning)* Use once or twice a week.
* Apply more than recommended amount when your skin is particularly dry.
* Open the cap and breathe in the scent of Water Sleeping Pac_EX about 5 seconds before use when you feel a heavy stress.
* Apply to neck area for neck care.
Beta-Glusan, Hunza Apricot Extracts, Chestnuts Seed Extract, Sleepscent™, Himalaya Snow Water
Everybody sensitive to scents can stop reading here, because this pack has a noticable scent. Laneige calls it “Sleepscent”. It’s a flowery, calming scent that I personally like a lot. I got used to the fresh scent of Missha Super Aqua Marine Stem Cell Cream that I use day and night, but I like Laneige’s scent a lot better. The gel-cream structure of the pack cools the skin while applied and absorbs quickly into the skin without making it greasy or oily. That’s quite important for me, if I consider to use it during night, since I don’t want to have a greasy pillow next morning :D
Honestly, I’m not sure if the “Sleepscent” is the reason why I fell asleep soon, or it was just me being so tired XD but for me this scent is kind of calming. Nevertheless, I couldn’t see any skin brightening effects, just my skin felt moisturized and soft the next day. All together I would say it is a nice alternative in the night care routine. Anybody interested should consider buying a sample-sized jar containing 20 ml for about 5 to 6 US$. The full-sized jar contains 80 ml and costs US$26.99 at cosmetic-love for example.

I joined several blogger networking sites recently. Since GFC seems to end soon, I hope I provided enough alternatives for everybody interested in following my blog. Just have a look at my sidebars :) Or if you know any important networks I missed don’t hesitate and write a comment ♥
