Highly concentrated with vitamins such as A, B, C, D, E and K… don’t worry no more letters haha. A thick, non-sticky facial serum is easily absorbed into the skin, with benefits such as increased skin nourishment, brightening and a more balanced skin throughout the day! Due to its thickness and non-water consistency, the serum is not easily spread however, it is easily absorbed.
For me there has not been a dramatic change to my skin, however there is slight changes to the brightness of my skin and its elasticity. Frequent and consistent use of this serum is required, to see the results.
Packed with vegan-friendly ingredients, seaweed as its main, the cream provides a powerful, moisturising layer during the night. I found the texture quite interesting, it felt silky, non-greasy and soft! I noticed after a few days of using the cream, during the day my skin retained the natural glow and youthful bounce. There’s a slight scent to it and don’t worry, your skin won’t turn green.
Collagen is another key ingredient, to enhance your skin tone and smooth out unwanted wrinkles. Hydraulic acid is also present, keeping your skin moisturised in harsh, drying conditions.
Recommended for all skin types, this facial spray can be used before applying your makeup, as a pick-me-up or when your skin is looking too matte/dull. I’ve been using it in the morning as a light moisturiser, after showering, before applying makeup and right before bed! I love how it evenly sprays, the spritz is between fine to mid. Because of the light texture, it works great as a moisturising base, if you’re like me getting way too oily throughout the day. The fragrance to this spray is quite light, it doesn’t linger and it is actually quite soothing.
Packed with botanical and herbal extracts, these natural ingredients help with rejuvenating and soothing tired skin. I have had no negative reactions to this spray, mainly due to its non-harsh ingredients used. 1-2 spritz is more than enough! Apparently you can also use it on your hair.
Retailing for less than $20 AUD, this clay masque is packed with natural, super green ingredients, such as avocado, baobab, reship oil, kale, goji berry and bentonite. These vitamin-boost ingredients are used to increase skin brightness, reduce fine lines and provide antioxidants to help detox the skin.
I don’t believe I ended up finishing this masque, just left aside. It was refreshing when left on my skin, though when I removed it, it had little effect. My skin felt somewhat the same before and after applying the masque. I used it for 2-3 months, but did not see any of the benefits it claims to provide. The upside of it, was that it was not harsh on my skin and was easy to wash off.
Included is 25 finger mitts, that are soaked in organic essence. I jumped onto this Korean beauty craze a while back and wanted to see what the fuss was about! So mind you, I bought this product almost a year ago. What I loved about this exfoliating method, was the use of finger mitts. You can control the areas you want to work on, such as the location and amount of pressure. The organic essence contains betaine silicate and fruit acids, both gentle on the skin. The amount of dead skin will depend on the individual, but for me it was quite light. Not harsh at all, though I wished the mitts had a bit more essence.
Fermented apple, raspberry extracts, hyaluronic acid and beta-glucan are also infused, to ensure your skin is nourished and moisturised. For me, this affect was quite mild, it did not completely dry my skin out and it did not feel entirely moisturising. I’d say this product is quite gentle and there’s a little hint of fragrance.
The formula was thick and was rich in consistency, it was truly satisfying when it was applied. Due to the thickness of it, you just need a little when applying. I use it during my night-time routine, but I did read you can also use it before your morning cosmetics.
Targeting fine lines, wrinkles and those pesty dark circles, this collagen-boosted eye cream will be your right-hand weapon! The secret ingredient I think, would be its use of Vitamin C. The banana pigment, it says, would be a great colour corrector for the eye area. I haven’t tried it, but that answers why it has that banana pigment to it.
My results was great! I found my eye area brighter, like I would look less like a panda when the weeks went by. Eye concealer I found was easier to buff out, due to the application of the eye creme the night before. The eye creme had an effect of smoothing and hydrating the under-eye area. I wished I bought the larger version.
Three highly-dense and soaked masks, are cased within the box. Covered with Enchinacea GreenEnvy, chichoric acid, coconut gel, carrot extract, cucumber extract and more, you can be rest assured your skin to feel hydrated, smooth and almost plump-like.
Due to the high amount of goodies soaked into the mask, it is quite heavy on the face and it brings about a cooling sensation throughout the process. There is a slight difference to my skin’s brightness after application. It is non-sticky which I love and has a slight fragrance. The price for 3 masks is quite high, which I believe is because of the dense ingredients used. However, I don’t mind re-purchasing the other target-related masks in this brand, because I have found it to be affective, non-irritating and the hydrating benefits is immediate.
When you first see Tatcha, what do you envision? For me it speaks out luxury, history and a leader in the beauty industry. So I had to get my hands (and skin) on a Tatcha cream!
I am almost half-way through this hydrating moisturiser, 1 to 2 little scoops is enough for the face and neck. Richly hydrating, non-sticky and it has this cooling and calming affect. I do use it during my night-time routine, as it is definitely more on the heavier side. The fragrance scent is barely there. What I’ve noticed is when applied at night, the next day my skin still retains that softness. It does take about a minute or two to fully absorb and does not sit on your skin.
The packaging was exquisite, from the box it came in, the thoughtful note and down to the sturdy jar itself. This is the full size costing about $100+ and you can also purchase the travel size.
Pricey? Yes, but you’ll feel pampered once you’ve have applied one or more masks!
A bento set is what this glamorous set of masks are called, created by Skin Inc. You get spoilt with 3 sets of masks with specific functions, Lines Be-Gone in rose gold, Get Glowin in platinum and Soothe-N-Purify in gold. The quality of these masks are amazing, sturdy and are not over-soaked. As these beauty masks are quite dense, they don’t slip or slide on your face, however mine were a tad too large. Interestingly these masks are cut in half, so it provides you with an opportunity to mix and match depending on what you’re targeting.

Talk about the convenience of removing makeup on the go! I was thinking of bringing along my usual large pot of balm overseas, but luckily thought otherwise. This cleansing stick starts off as a balm which you can directly slide on your face, then into an oil and with a bit of water into foam. With my experience, it does not entirely transform into a foam like texture in the end, mind you I tried various amounts of water.
The end result is that your makeup will be somewhat removed, however further cleansing after this product is recommended. I would use another foam cleanser after this product and/or makeup wipes prior, to ensure everything is removed. My skin did not feel dry nor irritant, for the price point you get a lot out of the product and the convenience of carrying it is a major plus. However, since extra steps is required I won’t be likely to re-purchase.
