Review: Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream

9. January 2017

I have heard from the brand Yadah during the times MeMeBox was still shipping internationally and I remember that I had two sample sized creams from this brand. I never ended up reviewing them, so I’m even more happy to show you another product from this brand today, the Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream. This product was offered to me for reviewing purpose by  BBCOSMETIC.

Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream

Yadah’s saying is “born to protect the pure and clear skin” and therefore this Korean brand isdedicated to use natural, low-chemical ingredients for their products. On the brand site they state that “Yada” is Hebrew and means “Wisdom”. Th ekey ingredient characteristic for their product is organic eastern prickly pear extract (opuntia humifusa). Their products are natural, hypoallergenic and mild with no artificial coloring, fragrance or preservatives and low chemicals.

Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream

What caught my attention about this brand was the characteristic illustrations on the product’s packaging, which is a red-haired girl. It makes the product look young and somehow modern/trendy to me. Yadah Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream is a spot concentration treatment that helps to sooth red spots. The treatment is based on 7 patented natural ingredients that are illustrated on the cardboard box of the product.

Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream

This mixture of plant extracts is called BSASM™ complex and contains Centella Asiatica (Centella) Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum (Asian knotweed) Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis (Baikal skullcap) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis (“tea flower”) Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, and Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract. This complex has strong soothing, anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties.

Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream

The full ingredients list is listed on the cardboard box in English and has been added to COSDNA as well. The best part of the ingredients list is that all the ingredients are green-labelled and the potential irritants are so few as well. Apart from the plant extract from the BSASM™ complex there are even more plant extracts included. Moreover you will find ingredients like niacinamide, plant based oils, hyaluronic acid, astaxanthin and many more.

Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream

The Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream comes in an interesting pen-shaped tube. The tip of the tube acts as applicator as well. By pushing down the nudge you will get a pea-size amount of product on that applicator and you can apply it on your red spot. The best part is that you can simply sanitize the applicator afterwards and use it next time, keeping it as hygienic as possible without using your fingers. Actually, I really love that applicator and how easy it makes it to use this product. The spot cream has a regular cream-type consitency, and it also blends in nicely and absorbs after a while. I even could use it below my makeup without any troubles. I used it on one or two pimples I had in the past weeks and the cream was cooling upon application and helped to calm down the redness. Since I do not have troubled skin it is hard to say how the cream will work on acne or severe skin troubles.

Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream

I’m not someone who has troubled and irritated skin often. I  have occasionally a pimple or two, but nothing too bad actually. It was nice to use this spot treatment on the pimples because of it cooling and soothing effect, so I guess if you have more of that kind a spot treatment like the Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream will be great for you! I love how plant based extracts are used and the brands philosophy is to keep the chemicals low. You can get the Yadah Anti-T Red Zone Spot Cream from BBCOSMETIC for 16.98 US$ and from for 16 US$ What do you think? Do you use red spot treatments?

Graveyard: March and April empties 2015

19. May 2015

Here are my product empties for March and April and a quick impression on each product. I’m a bit late for the post, but hopefully you like it anyways :) As usual, I didn’t include any sample sachets or sheet masks masks, because it is too messy to keep these.

Graveyard: March and April empties 2015

1. Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser. Repurchase? Maybe someday. I have to many cleansers right now.

You can read my review on this foaming cleanser >>here<<. I love the packaging and it had a nice scent. The foam was thick and soft and the cleanser contained rose petals.

2. Happy Bath Rose Essence. Repurchase? I would love to!

This bath and shower cream had the most lingering and nicest rose scent! If you are a lover you will love this…but I remember it was marked quite expensive, sadly.

3. Shib Jang Ceng Chun Ji Heang Hand Cream. Repurchase? Yes, please.

This moisturizing and nourishing hand cream has a long name, but nevertheless it does a great job as hand cream. It contains ginseng extracts, shea butter and olive oil and was not sticky, not greasy and I loved using it!

4. Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly. Repurchase? No.

I like the idea of shower jelly and it was quite fun. Nevertheless, this specific product scent was nbot my favourite, but I could imagine getting other versions of it.

5. Kerastase Elixir Ultime. Repurchase? Maybe.

I received this hair oil trial the last time I was giving my hair a cut. It is a nice and lightweight oil and I could imagine to try it again. Unfortunately, Kerastase products are quite expansive.

6. Boutique Bebe Hair Salon Concentrate Protein. Repurchse? Maybe.

You can read my review >>here<<. I enjoyed using these two hair treatments and I can imagine that I would repurchase them again from time to time.

7. Mise en scène Perfect Repair Treatment Pack. Repurchase? Yes!

This treatment was georgeous. It made the hair super soft and easy to comb after an instant. Although labelled for twice a week use I was using it almost every second day because I loved the effect. I would like to repurchase this again. Although I read in some that they think the scent is old-women scent, but I got used to it and even liked it after all. I still have the Mise en scène Perfect Serum and I’m planning to write a comparative post between a couple of hair oils.

8.Dewytree Real Collagen nutrition serum. Repurchase? Maybe.

There is still an upcoming review for this :D I enjoyed this serum and I love the pump bottle it has and the subtle rose/flower scent.

9. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream. Repurchase? Maybe.

a hydrating cream which contains hyaluronic acid and is very nice on the skin. You can read my review >>here<<.

10. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum. Repurchase? Maybe.

Another hydrating product from the Klairs Rich Moist soothing line. I was enjoying all the products, especially in winter. Read my review >>here<<.

11. Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil. Repurchase? Yes! As soon as I’ve finished my other cleansers.

This is the best cleansing oil I have tried so far and I can recommend you to try it! Read my review >>here<<. I love the scent, I love how it cleanses. A great product!

12. Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. Repurchase? Yes!

Suprisingly, I fell in love with that toner, although I thought it will be my least favourite of the Klairs products. It has a nice pH of 5 and is really a good preparation facial toner. Read my review >>here<<.

13. Hanskin Bio Origin BB creams. Repruchase? Maybe the ampoule BB.

I wrote a comparison review on these two BB creams >>here<<. I liked the ampoule BB better than the other one, but both are descent products.

14. COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol. Repurchase? A good product to have in case of emergency!

I received this selfmade trial version of COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol in a giveaway by Sam Murakami from ColorCrush (check out her blog/videos). Thanks again for the lovely giveaway, dear ♥ I must say I had a positive impression on this product and I would love to try it for a longer time, if I have some more skin troubles (hopefully not). This treatment contains propolis, AHA/BHA and works great on troubled skin. It has an acid pH of 4 and should be used after a pH lowering toner and before your other moisturizing steps (including moisturizing toner/essences/serums/creams/ampoules etc). It is on sale at Wishtrend atm!

15. Yadah Vita-Whitening Aqua Gel and Puregreen Moisturizing Cream. Repurchase?No.

These two sample sized creams were a dissapointment. First: the lids were not closing properly, so I assume that some of the product either leaked out or evaporated/dried up after a while, although I didn’t open it before. Due to this my skin didn’t like the creams. One was to heavy balmtype and the other didn’t absorb either.

16. Tonymoly Eggpore Nose Pack Package. Repurchase? These, or other nosepacks.

I like to use nosepacks occasionally, although they say they are not good. But I love the feeling of seeing some dead skincells and dirt and babyhair pulled of by these kind of patches, although it is quite gross, especially when my bf does use these :D

Unboxing: MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No. 4

17. December 2014

When I received and reviewed the MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No. 1 I ordered MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No.3 and 4 shortly afterwards. I was a bit dissapointed with No. 3, although it really contained some products which I use and like, but it simply didn’t give me the impression of being a “cute” box. Now, it’s time to show you the content of the most recent MeMebox My Cute Wishlist No.4, although it arrived some weeks ago:

Unboxing: MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No. 4

MeMeBox is a box service company, offering a wide amount of different beauty boxes. Unlike most western beauty boxes which have to be subscribed for on a monthly basis, MeMeBoxes can be preordered but that doesn’t force you to buy more than the desired box. They ship to many countries and the products they send in their boxes are mainly Korean. Apart from their monthly Global Boxes, they also have a huge amount of themed boxes, MiniBoxes, Boxes where you know what is inside, so called Superboxes with a higher value and so on (check out the links at the end of the post)…just check out their online store and you’ll find a huge selection of different boxes. Since they have become very popular within the blogger community they sell out pretty fast, but they bring up new beauty boxes so fast, that you cannot keep up with them anyways. That was at least my experience during this year. At the moment they seem to be focusing on their own brand and some collaborations with well-known blogger in the asian beauty blogger community. At the end of this post I will make a list of all the discounts they offer at the moment, too.

Unboxing: MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No. 4

“We bring you, the latest edition of our Meme-fans’ most favorite series, My Cute Wishlist #4!

For endless days and nights, we scoured through the entire country searching for the cutest, most lovable beauty products in the world! We went through a deluge of beauty product wonders and carefully selected only the best to bring you a box packed with whimsical – and effective- beauty products that will once again make the My Cute Wishlist series a Memebox fan favorite!

Loaded with some seriously adorable and hard-to-find beauty loot—straight from the hotbed of cute beauty products – this My Cute Wishlist #4 will make you ridiculously giddy with excitement!

Who else does cute like we do?”

According to the description, this MeMebox should contain a huge amount of super adorable products, which are partially not well known to the Korean beauty lovers. A first peek inside the box reveals that this box is far more fit for the My Cute Wishlist theme than the previous one- yet the amount of unknown products is kept at bay because surprisingly it contains some of the well known brands like Tonymoly, Holika Holika and even Etude House. Two other brands in this box are at least a name to the frequent MeMeBox buyers like ddung and the japanese brand Pure Smile. The only brand I didn’t know about is Yadah.

Unboxing: MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No. 4

According to the product card, which comes with each box,  the MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist contains 8 fullsized products. I did some research on the Yadag creams, which have a fun design and I liked them from the first glance and I discovered that the creams are availbale in 50 ml jars. I don’t think that these two 5 ml jars are fullsize products, but rather deluxe samples. Anyways…let’s take a closer look at the content:

1 & 2. Yadah Vita-Whitening Aqua Gel and Puregreen Moisturizing Cream (fullsized product, each 5ml for US24)

I was happy when I saw these cute jars with the fun design. Since I didn’t know the brand I was curious to test them right away and both creams seem nice and feel moisturizing when tested on the back of my hand. I will make a more in-depth review once I tried them properly. Although described as fullsized items they are not. You can find the fullsized jars of the cream on the official brand page for 21000 Won (50 ml), which is around 21 US$. The two tiny sample jars here are worth 3000 Won (~3 US$)!

3. Tonymoly Apple Red Tox Honey Cream (fullsized product, 80ml for 12 US$)

This product from Tonymoly has a lovely design. I really adore the apple shaped container! This cream smells so nice of sweet apples and is not comparable to artificial apple scent. Also the structure of this yellow gel cream reminds me of apple purée…just it is more fluid :D It comes with a spoon and I love to use it over night as sleeping mask. I have no complaint about this one so far ♥

4. Etude House Sweet Recipe Candy Stick (fullsized product, 2g for 5US$)

Unfortunately, I received one of these already with the MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No.1. At least it is not the same, but another shade called seedless strawberry candy. I didn’t open it because I have a lot of lip balms at the moment. It fits for the Christmas season at least.

5. Pure Smile Snail Hand Cream Milk (fullsized product, 60g for 5US$)

This hand cream has a cute design and it contains snail mucus. So I like it although I only tested it once so far. I will use up my other hand creams before I start with this one, but at the moment I’m using hand creams often because it is so cold here. It is good to have a tube in backup. :D

6. Tonymoly Egg Pore Nose Pack (fullsize product, 7ea for 4US$)

Since the moment Tonymoly renewed their packaging of the Egg Pore line I wanted to try a product from it. I think the design is very pretty although simple and the egg makes it somehow even cute. ♥ It is great that they included a whole box of these containing 7 pieces :)

7. ddung Liquid Eye Liner (fullsized product, 5ml for for 15 US$)

I use eye liner daily and it is great to have one in this box, especially since this box is mainly focused on skincare. I will use this for sure although the packaging design is nothing I would buy personally.

8. Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Blackhead Steam Starter (fullsized product, 30ml for 6 US$)

I love this packaging! I don’t have a lot of Holika Holika products either, which makes me even more happy to receive one with a MeMeBox. The pink tube with the dots and the pig snout looks really cute and I’m looking forward to try it :) ♥

9. Pure Smile Choosey Lip Pack Milk (fullsized product, 1ea for 1US$)

I received one of these lip maks in an earlier box and it was fun to try. Also, this time the essence is milk type so I’m curious how the two versions compare. Maybe I make a review on both, too :)

Below you’ll see all the products of the box:

Unboxing: MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No. 4

All in all, this box is a nice one, although probably not the best one I received so far. MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No.4 has its focus on skincare mainly. The variety is nice, too! The products selected fit to the topic of the My Cute Wishlist and it contains products from some brands which are well known for their cute packaging design like Holika Holika, Etude House and Tonymoly. From the description of the box I would have expected some unknown brands, too, but the only real unknown treassure I found is the Yadah creams, which come in sample size jars -although claimed to be fullsized products by MeMeBox. I think this box would have a much more possitive feedback if they would have included a real fullsized product from this new Korean natural cosmetics brand. By the way, the brand name stands for “Young Adults with Determination to Achieve Happiness”. I’d like to see more products of this brand in future boxes…

What do you think of this box? Any product you love?
