It’s been 9 days into 2018, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t post about 2017 (I’m just making up excuses for posting this late). I’m sorry guys!
Anyway, I did a similar post back around July, and I am going to repeat that the products I hate meant more like products I dislike, or would not re-purchase in the future. It doesn’t mean that I fully hate them or anything. I don’t want this to be a very long post, so I’m trying my best to only pick some products, even though there’s a lot more that I would love to share.
Products I loved:
- COSRX Advanced Snail 95 Mucin Power Essence
This product easily became one of the products I love due to it giving my skin good results. I don’t know how, but this essence helps reduce the bumps that I have and also it quickens the fading of scars. It has this unique consistency that mimics snail mucus, but I actually think it’s more interesting that way. It’s been almost 5 months and I haven’t even use half the bottle yet. Now I know why everyone hypes about this product.
- Acwell Aqua Clinity Cream/Double Moisture No. 4
This product is probably my favorite moisturizer so far as it is moisturizing, gentle and is quickly absorbed. I don’t have much to talk about it anymore since I’ve talked about it in my review. I’ll just let you know that towards the bottom of the tub, I used it less often because I love it so much.
- innisfree Canola Honey Lip Balm
This product was way beyond my expectations. I wasn’t expecting much of it but I was surprised at how effective this lip balm is. I don’t need to re-apply this product as often as I do with other lip balms. Although it might feel a bit oilier, but I don’t really mind as long as my lips aren’t chapped.
- lululun 7 days (Hydrating)
These sheet masks aren’t thin like the Etude House ones, but I think that they are really effective at delivering moisture to the skin. There is a lot of essence in the package that the sheet masks are dripping of essence. I love that these masks only require 10 minutes which is half the time it takes for other sheet masks.
- Peripera Peri’s Ink Velvet (Celeb Deep Rose)
I’ve only gotten this for about a month but I love the packaging and also the color. I feel like this color suits me a lot. I’m surprised by that because this color leans more towards orange and I don’t usually buy orange-ish colors so it’s cool. And it’s long-lasting so I reach for this a lot.
- mise en scène Perfect Serum Treatment
I first tried this product from the small packet included in the hair dye box and I loved it. It made my hair feel so soft even after I just dyed my hair. So I found this big tube of it and I’ve diligently used it once a week. Especially after I bleached my hair, and it made my hair feel better.
- Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Shampoo
I was looking for a shampoo that would moisturize my hair as it is quite dry because of the constant dyeing, heat and maybe weather. However, I was just trying Korean shampoos because I was curious and this product surprised me. Every time I use this shampoo, my hair feels so soft as if I just applied conditioner. I don’t know how it works but it makes a huge difference.
Products I hated:
- Innisfree Real Squeeze Mask
After using the Etude House masks, I got used to thinner masks, so I don’t really like these Innisfree ones. I don’t know why, but I also feel that they aren’t very effective. Even if sheet masks aren’t great, they should at least be moisturizing. However I don’t think that they are moisturizing enough.
- Bbia Last Auto Gel Liner #1 Noir
I’ve heard good things about Bbia’s eye liners. However, I am quite disappointed in this gel liner. Every time I apply it on my lids, it would smudge to my bottom lids, even if I used a primer beforehand. I still have to figure out how to prevent this from smudging.
- Eye Deco Color Contact Lens Colors (Shiny Blue)
I don’t have much to say about this product since it’s all in my review. But, all I can say is that I was disappointed in it.
Thank you for checking out my post! Here’s to the upcoming best beauty products of 2018~
