Vivid Cotton Ink

INNISFREE

I am slowly building up this little collection of Innisfree’s cotton ink lip tints. I have been meaning to use lip tints more, just because of its natural finish look. For $16.10 you get 4g of lip tint and is available in 15 shades, I believe in the same colour palette. Mainly reds and browns.

I love the soft, flat-edge wand used, as it applies the shine essence oil-infused (camellia, mango seed, avocado, cotton seed oil) tint across the lips. I wonder how it would work on the cheeks mmm? Anyways, it feels moist, soft and non-drying once applied and has a slight fragrance to it. I would spread a tiny bit in the inner-most of my lips and then spread it out with my fingers. A little tint dabbed on, goes a long way! It is super pigmented so it lasts for a good 3-4 hours. Definitely buildable and once dried, it does not smudge. Non-sticky too! The finish is matte, with subtle shine.

It Radiant Lace Hydrogel Eye Patch

BANILA CO. | W COSMETICS

An eye patch, more like an eye mask is designed to look like lace-designed mask. You do not need to worry looking like a ghost around the house, now you can look stylish whilst you pamper!

Filled with ingredients to whiten and brighten, such as white flower complete, ceramics and rose, it smells beautiful but not overpowering. The serum was non-sticky and did not provide too much that it would drip down my face. Some face masks I have bought in the past, kept slipping off because it had too much serum to hold. The design is something I absolutely loved, as it does not slip off and covers the top and bottom areas of my eyes. I bought another because it was not only affordable, but it covers a wide range of the eye area.

Pore Tightening Memory Sleeping Mask

CAOLION | SEPHORA | AMAZON

When I saw that this has a shape memory formula, it got me interested. It has an amazing cooling effect which instantly calms the skin. It is quite soothing, especially after washing and toning.

Waking up from my slumber, I did feel the skin moisturised though it made no difference to my pores. Smoother yes, but not firmer. There is no scent which is perfect and it almost feels like gelatine on the face. Main ingredients used are, betaine, allantoin, lactobacillus and chaenomeles sinensis fruit extract.

Pore Magic Heating Gel

BRTC

For as long as I can remember, I have been dealing with black heads and white heads for all my life. After watching Tina Tries This video, I luckily stumbled upon this at an Asian beauty store. As you press a button on the side, it dispenses a combination of sea water and Jeju Volcanic ingredients on top of the silicon brushes. 3-5 minutes in circular motion, you massage the areas that need pore tightening and decrease of black/whiteheads. It is not harsh on the skin, and by doing circular motions it creates the required heat.

After you wash the gel off, you will notice that your skin is smoother and slightly tighter. However, there will still be black and whiteheads. I recommend using a strip afterwards, to remove the remaining sebum and heads.

Clean It Zero

BANILA CO. | AMAZON

Do not be put off with the sorbet-like texture, it is super lightweight! This remover is amazing and I love how you need just a little, to remove even heavy cake you have on. Casing looks fabulous, also the balm does not have any over-whelming scent.

Simple to use, once in contact with your warm skin it easily breaks down your makeup. If you have sensitive skin like me, it does not irritate it and keeps it feeling soft afterwards. Just be sure to use a cloth, as I do find it sometimes difficult to remove. There are other balms for other skin-types, and it is guaranteed that I will be trying out the others!

Pore Sebum Control Moisture Stick

CAOLION | SEPHORA $25

Either I am applying this wrong or that it doesn’t work at all…

Unfortunately this sebum control stick did not work for me, maybe because my skin produces too much oil/sebum. There is a notable cooling affect, once applied. I have read comments about this product, recommending this product to those who does not produce too much sebum/oil.

Premium Hot & Cool Pore Pack Duo

CAOLION | SEPHORA $46

I am so glad I got to purchase this pore pack and it came together, both blending perfectly. Basically, this line produces uses all natural ingredients which is quite soothing to your skin. Though it is a two step process, approximately taking about 35 minutes, it not only detoxifies using the steaming mask but also tightens using the cooling mask.

I have used it twice, once per week, and each time it leaves my skin feeling like a baby’s bottom! Also my skin is clearer for the week, making it easier as well to apply makeup.

I am absolutely in love with this product, and cannot wait to try out other Caolion’s products.
