My comments: As I was running low on my beloved low pH toner Ifactory SomeByMi Aha-Bha-Pha 30 Days Miracle Toner, I decided to order Nightingale Daily Derma Eraser Toner. I don’t know how I even lived without such toners! This toner is truly amazing! If your skin can’t exist without acids than this toner with low acids concentration will be your savior for summer time (please do not forget about sunscreens). Toner has amazing ginger scent and is very thin, like water. It adsorbs fast, doesn’t sting and cleans the face in a very gentle way. The volume is huge. I’m using it during my evening routine: I’m wetting the cotton pad with the toner and wiping my skin gently. This toner is really moisturizing and makes skin smooth and shiny without stripping it. You can choose between several types: Mild (suitable for all skin types), Aroma Rose (to hydrate and glow), Lemon Tea Tree (treats troubled skin), Fresh Peach (pore tightening), Yuja & Ginger (to revitalize and brighten).

A’PIEU Madecassoside Fluid-review

Madecassoside fluid derived from nature strengthens skin barrier by providing protective film to the skin. Contains 40mg of madecassoside, and 30% of centella asiatica leaf water.

Link to Cosdna.

  • Centella Asiatica: Rich in amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids and phytochemicals which in turn provides anti-aging benefits due to its ability to protect the skin from degradation. Also ideal for acne sufferers as it speeds healing, which lessens the possibility of scarring and future blemishes, as well as providing skin soothing properties.
  • Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3. Helps to boost collagen production and in turn strengthens the skin’s natural lipid barrier. Over time, may also assist in brightening, anti-aging and reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.
  • Madecassoside: Derived from the Centella Asiatica plant. Has strong anti-inflammatory effects, and stimulates fibroblasts which create collagen, hence strengthening the skin’s structure. Also contributes to anti-aging as it is an effective antioxidant. * Adenosine: Beneficial in combating wrinkles, especially crow’s feet and frown lines. Also aids in smoothening out the texture of the skin.
  • Beta-Glucan: A polysaccharide sugar derived from yeast or oats. Possesses antioxidant properties and also helps to improve the appearance of redness and other signs of skin sensitivity.

Sulwhasoo Essential Balancing Water EX–review

Sulwhasoo’s essential water soothes and hydrates, leaving your skin supple. The water containing Matrimony Vine and Purslane provides hydration, leaving your skin with a delicate veil of moisture. Spreads smoothly and absorbs quickly, providing long-lasting hydration, soothing the skin, and leaving a clean finish.

My comments: I need to confess – as much as I love this brand, I haven’t bought this toner till now. But the small cute bottles are just so ideal for traveling with hand luggage. Therefore I finally bought it:) It is not really water-y although the name states it. This hydrating toner is thicker, and is more of a gel-type. And a little goes long way. It has a gorgeous light, herb-flowery scent as all the Sulwasoo products. I think I will pass buying the full size version as there is plenty of toner in this small bottle.

Ifactory SomeByMi Aha-Bha-Pha 30 Days Miracle Toner–review

Ifactory SomeByMi Aha-Bha-Pha 30 Days Miracle Toner It is a miracle toner which will get you a baby soft skin in just 30 days!

This toner is formulated to be used 7 days per week (morning and night) during 30 days leading to dramatic improvement due to mild irritation-free exfoliation. It combats blackheads, excess sebum production, gets rid of dead skin cells, reduces irritation and improves the skin tone. There are three types of acids present: AHA (Citric acid), BHA (Salicylic acid), PHA (Lactobionic acid) as well as papaya fruit extract for sebum control and skin soothing. It also contains 10,000 ppm of natural tea tree extracts famous for its great anti-inflammatory and disinfection qualities. Among other beneficial ingredients are witch hazel extract, lentil seed extract, swift-let nest extract. Hyaluronic acid and allantoin are providing great hydration, niacinamid (2%) is responsible for brightening and has anti-inflammatory properties and adenosin will give you a potent anti-wrinkle effect. The toner is slightly acidic (pH 5.5) which makes it skin friendly. You will not find any skin irritating or harmful ingredients in this toner (they are all EWG safety-rated). But what you can find is two patented ingredients: first one is for sebum control – P-REFINYL , and second one is for moisturization – FRUCTAN.

My comments: When my skin became unhappy without any acid treatment I bought this toner. It has three kinds of acids in it with low percentage. That is why I use it during summer without any back thoughts. This toner has a pleasant refreshing smell, absorbs quickly into my skin, doesn’t dry it out and really helps keeping blemishes at bay. My skin feels just very clean and calm. All skin types will benefit from using this toner. You can pat this toner on or if there are any dry patches you can leave the cotton pads soaked with the toner on these areas for 1-2 min.

I consider buying Miracle toner one of my best blind purchases as there are few to no reviews on it yet. So, if you are looking for a very delicate acid exfoliation then this toner is a winner! Noticeable improvement of my skin tone and reducing of the amount and intensity of blemishes were seen after a week of toner usage during my evening routine. And do not forget to apply sunscreen while using toner with acids!

Skin dryness, that was caused by central heating, disappeared after short use. The oil has a very gentle and pleasant texture, due to the mineral water that is a part of the product components. I would recommend giving this oil a try. Just swap your regular night cream with this product, for 3 times a week, and see the difference. Testers comes in small bottles, but they will last you for a long time.

PETITFEE Black Pearl Gold Hydrogel Mask Pack Sheet-review

The PETITFEE Black Pearl Hydrogel Mask Pack is rich in nutrients derived from marine algae, combined with valuable mineral extracts such as Black Pearl, 24k gold, B-glucan, Peat Water, Fucoidan-v.

  • Relaxing hydrogel texture
  • Mask in 2 pieces for an optimal application

My comments: My face appreciates the hydrogel masks more than the regular sheet ones. Even though the hydrogel masks are more expensive, I do buy them from time to time, just to give myself the pleasure of using them. This mask comes in 2 pieces, that allows an optimal and easy application. While on the face, it “gives away” all of its serum to the skin, and gradually dries up on the face. I usually keep the mask on my skin for the prescribed 20 minutes. After this time, I even do not use additional moisturizing cream, because my skin feels sufficiently moist. The bag in which the mask comes in, is full of working serum, so I use the remains on my neck, chest area and hands. Due to the frequent usage of sheet masks, I almost don’t use a hand cream. Here to that!

Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream–review

My favorite brand Purito launched a new eye cream with Centella Asiatica!

I felt in love with this brand about three years ago when I got a sample of their Vitamin C serum. And it was love from the first sight I should admit. You know, I have always an immediate feeling about a new product if it suits me. My skin kind of tells me that this cream or serum will be beneficial for it. It was always the case with almost every Purito product in a positive way. Yes, almost everything from their products became a HG for me. And this concerns a new eye cream as well! I got samples of this eye cream with my another regular orders of Purito items. There is still not much information concerning Purito first eye cream as it is a super newby! So here is what I could find. Continue reading Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream–review

Wish Formula The Mask With Centella Honey Fermented Serum–review

Contains Centella Asiatica extract, honey ferment extract, beta-glucan, panthenol, allantoin, hyaluronic acid and more natural ferment extract to provide intensive moisturizing, nourishing and soothing effect. It visibly brightens the complexion while also providing superior hydration for that radiant, dewy glow! This is also perfect for soothing sensitive skin because bee honey has natural anti-inflammatory properties that calm the skin.

* Centella Asiatica boost collagens and develop protective skin barrier.

* Premium Bee Honey, rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids calms the skin and is very nourishing on the skin.

Does not contain: Parabens, Synthetic Dyes & Mineral Oils.

My comments: It is a rare occasion to find such a “pure” ingredient list with attractive fermented extracts. The essence is watery and almost scent-less, with a tiny hint of herbal scent. And there is a lot of essence in the packet. The fitting is pretty decent. It felt actually very hydrating and left my skin plump and firm. I used this mask on “bare” face and I did not feel any need to apply any other moisturizer after I removed the mask. I recommend this mask to all people with sensitive skin as it will most probably become your HG mask.
