My choice of Korean special care travel essential!

I have been traveling quite intensely for the past few months since August from Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Bangkok, Kanchanaburi, Phnom Penh, Ho Chi Minh, Mui Ne, Nha Trang and Dalat (and I got a trip in coming 2 week time!) and to keep my skin healthy is not easy. Constant exposure to dirt & sun make my skin are more prone to breakout. If I could bring my Panasonic Nanocare Facial Steamer would be great but I think to pack a few tubes of skincare seems more convenient. I truly felt that besides our usual skincare routine here like cleanser, toner, serum and moisturiser, we need some special care to help to boost & pamper our skin health!

 As you might know Korean skincare is known to use a lot natural ingredients passed down from generation to generation. This tradition continues today with formulations that tend to shun harsh chemicals and draw from the Earth plus they are pretty affordable in general. So while I was googling to look for solution from Korean skincare brand I stumbled on a few articles on ProductNation Malaysia talking about this and they have the latest product reviews, products on-trend, consumer favourite and best of all an indication of price (btw the prices could change based on the e-commerce promotions that are going on)

Below are some of special care products from Korean brands I have researched and read their skin care review in Malaysia before trying out myself and I think these are great to maintain our kin during travel.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mask 

A mask with Micro Clay Mask containing Super Volcanic Clusters that is effective at absorbing excessive sebum and fine dust stuck between small pores and wrinkles. Formulated with 84.7% naturally derived ingredients, including 6,020 mg Jeju Volcanic Cluster and 5 proven exfoliants (volcanic clusters, walnut shells, cellulose, AHAs, BHAs). This 6-in-1 pore solution mask in a light, airy mousse helps: 
  1. minimize the look of pores 
  2. absorb sebum 
  3. gently exfoliate 
  4. deeply cleanse 
  5. even skin tone
  6. keep skin feeling cool 

I prefer the mousse over the jar version one as the pump allows for easy and mess-free application. I like how my skin feel very clean after using this however I can only use 1 to 2 times a week as it is pretty drying and I need to put on a hydrating mask right after.

Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask EX

A peel-off mask that removes dead skin cells and impurities for smoother skin. This mask includes finely ground Solomon’s Seal, fine honey, and Japanese Honeysuckle to leave skin look clear and translucent. This mask also contains natural ingredients including pine, licorice, Cnidium Officinale, and Angelica Acutiloba. I always love peel off mask but most of them are drying but this one is not. 

I love the ginseng scent super soothing and relaxing. I love how the skin was much noticeably cleaner and smoother after each use.

 Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off 

An exfoliating and moisturizing scrub mask with grains which is based on rice and rice extract. With its texture of ground rice, it leaves skin bright, soft and lustrous. I have been using this product for at least like 10 years and yet this is one of the best classic scrub mask around that is so affordable to own.
Skin Food Black Sugar Mask Wash Off 

Another mask from SkinFood. This sweet mask wash-off features organic black sugar granules that exfoliate and nourishes skin, leaving you feeling smooth and clean. 

Among the 2,091 reviews in ProductNation for this 4-star rated product, people are saying how much cleaner, refreshed and softer their skin feels after using it.It’s not hard to tell why because this mask is really affordable yet the result is immediate! Skin feel super smooth, moist and soft after using it with a sweet scent left behind.

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel 

Soak in the goodness of Californian aloe vera with this soothing gel. This is super mild on skin, it can be used to moisturise face, arms, legs, and hair. The vitamins from aloe vera also protect your skin from harmful UV rays and best use to soothe burn skin. I swear by this and always bring this along when I travel and I have a few jars of these product places around on my working table, vanity table and beside my table so it’s easy to reach.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask 

Besides their best seller sleeping mask, I think a lot of us often forget that the most important part of our smile is our beautiful lips.This sleep-in mask for the lips will gently melts away dead skin cell leaving lips moist and supple the next morning. A must have for me while I travel so that I can have beautiful looking lips for my travel pictures! 

These are some of the best Korean skincare product recommendation I researched via online and have tried personally and I hope you find it useful. I think there are too many products I bought in the past which are impulse purchase. Hence now I have become a smarter consumer (cos wan save money for traveling!) where I will actually Google for reviews, before trying out the sample or feel it at store before buying an actual size.

Swatch & Review of Laneige x Lucky Chouette Collection

The LANEIGE MEETS FASHION project is an annual collaboration between LANEIGE and trendsetting fashion designers. LANEIGE MEETS FASHION blends fashion and beauty, presenting them as one look to create a new trend of ‘fashionable beauty’. With this initiative, LANEIGE offers new limited edition beauty products for a fashionable look. 

Now in its third year, the 2016 series of LANEIGE MEETS FASHION is in collaboration with Lucky Chouette, the second line from Korean fashion brand Jardin de Chouette. The brand has been growing dramatically over the last three years and is adored by Korean girl members, celebrities and influencers.

Presenting to you the Limited Edition LANEIGE x Lucky Chouette Collection where it features chic owl-themed designs exclusively for the new LANEIGE Serum Drop Tint, BB Cushion and Multi-Colour Palette.

Introducing this 2 owl character i.e chouettes which is used as the main design in the limited edition LANEIGE x Lucky Chouette beauty products. 

Bella Chouette, a gorgeous pink owl, exudes charm with her deep double eyelids and plump lips. She is eloquent, confident, enthusiastic and is not afraid to speak her mind. 

Vely Chouette is a lovely, blushing blue owl that is shy and introverted. She has clear, shiny eyes that can melt anyone’s heart. 

So I did a personally test to see which makeup look should I do? No surprise that I am a Bella Chouette because I live the motto of "I do what I like like what I do" As you scroll down to the end, I will show you my Bella Chouette makeup look.

One of the best seller product Laneige BB Cushion SPF 50+++

Both Laneige BB Cushion for Whitening and Pore Control BB Cushion underwent a facelift and reformulation earlier this year. Hence the packaging here is merely a limited edition but the formulation is still the same.

Laneige BB Cushion Whitening SPF 50+ PA+++ (RM159) - pink packaging
Brightens skin with Dual Whitening care and provides the ultimate bright, clear skin. The new formulation keeps skin moisturized with no darkening all day long, complete with a powerful UV protection of SPF50+ PA+++.

Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF 50+ PA+++ (RM159) - black packaging
Keeps skin looking fresh and feel moisturized for long hours with its two- step oil control system. The new formulation keeps skin matte for hours without dryness and the feeling as if nothing is applied on the skin! Pore control maximizes the sweat-resistant effect so that the product stays on all day and provides complete protection with SPF50+ PA+++.

As I have dry & dull looking skin, I got the Laneige BB Cushion Whitening SPF 50+ PA+++ . The last time I reviewed in my blog was their old formula BB Cushion (here). 

I'm pretty excited to try out this new formulation as I have heard a lot of positive review about it. Well finally I have a chance to give it a try. 

Tip to apply BB cushion is to dab lightly and repeat the dabbing movement to build up the coverage. 

Here is a before & after picture using Laneige BB Cushion Whitening SPF 50+ PA+++. Imperfection seems to be perfectly covered without the use of concealer. Face looks instantly brighten and even up!

Newly introduced, Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint (RM75) which will be permanent part of the LANEIGE lip colour range.

This new Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint has 4 things to offer:-

1) Serum Tint that blends seamlessly with the lips

Serum Drop Tint formulated with an oil serum, the tint is designed to provide a wealth of essence to the lips. Its Berry Mix Complex™, rich in vitamin C and anti-oxidants keeps the lips smooth and supple while also giving off a vivid colour on the lips. 

Moisture Wrap™ with its wrapping technology, keeps skin moisturized all day through a network of hyaluronic minerals packed with skin purifying ingredients. To finish it off, a highly viscous paste is added for its moisture retaining and preserving power on the lips. 

2) A tinting upgrade that provides crystal clear gloss and rich colour
Oil and water soluble pigments are optimized for layers of moistures, providing rich colour and enhancing tinting effect, creating a super glossy oil for a vibrant and healthy look on the lips.

3) Moisturising, liquid-type serum oil tint
The combination of oil and a water type tint provides the best emulsion creating the serum drop tint. This mixture provides a texture that seamlessly blends into the skin to give a comfortable, long-lasting and refreshing finish with intense coloration. 

4) A triangle-shaped applicator designed especially for oil tint texture
Unlike a regular water drop tint applicator, the new serum drop tint applicator is specially designed with a hole in the middle of the tip to hold an ample amount of product. The triangle- shaped edge tip helps fill in the lips with colour from the inside. There are a total of 10 shades. It also comes with a Limited Edition packaging incorporating Lucky Chouette’s exclusively designed owls.

 I was given 2 shades to bring home to try. 

Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint in Bite Me is a burgundy red lips.If you realised the colour is darker on the tube but looks not too dark on the lips. 

Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint in Urban Coral looks hot pink on the tube but looks more sweet pink on my lips. I love this shade because it flatters my skin tone and it's easy to pair with any eye makeup from day to night!

This tinted lip colour is really easy to apply and blend. It does not feel drying at all on my lips and I guess the serum which has the same ingredient with their Lip Sleeping Mask is helping! Unfortunately for me the colour does not really stay as it will be gone after a meal and reapplication is needed. Oh before I forgot, this Serum Drop Tint has a mild sweet fragrance which is quite pleasant. 
Laneige Multi-Colour Palette (RM120) is designed with the charm of Bella Chouette and the lovely shyness of Vely Chouette, the Laneige Multi Shadow double-ups as an eyeshadow and multi-use palette that gives off a soft, shimmer highlighting effect.

Which is your favourite from Limited Edition LANEIGE x Lucky Chouette Collection? I like the Serum Drop Tint in Urban Coral and I can't deny I really like this cute pink packaging. 

Before I end this blog post, here is my Bella Chouette makeup look! 

Here is a tip how to create Bella Chouette look

Review : Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++

Laneige has recently expanded their BB (blemish balm) line, and their new addiction to the existing Laneige Snow BB Cream and Laneige Snow BB Essence Balm is the NEW Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ foundation.

p/s: I am quite curious why another + sign was put after SPF 50, I wonder if there is any meaning to it ?

I was invited to the blogger preview like 3 weeks back where the Laneige’s International Visiting Makeup Artist Mr Steven Lee was there to share his latest tips and makeup techniques. It was an interesting session as Mr Steven himself was quite humour and was generous in sharing his tips during our hands-on session!

Me & Mr Steven, I did my makeup from A-Z following his steps.. he said I done well like a pro :D *proud*

Anyway I am gonna review this Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ here in full details and post some of the tips alongside in this blogpost

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ comes with 5 key benefits: -

1) Whitening - contains of Laneige White Plus Renew Complex
2) Sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++
3) medium coverage
4) Sweat proof
5) Refreshing & Cooling sensation - reduces the temperature on skin by 3 celcius

Each box of the Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ foundation comes with 2 refills of same shade and each refill carries 15g.

*Unfortunately the one that was given to me for review does not come with the refill*

I am glad that Laneige introduced a total of 3 shades from brightest 21 (natural beige), 23 (sand beige) and darkest 31 (brown beige) because finally I do not need look like a ghost after applying them.

I must say this is the first time I could use a BB without worries because finaly the shade is JUST RIGHT for my skintone. I'm using no 23 (sand beige)

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++
is a BB product hat comes with a special cushion containing the BB liquid. The cushion is designed using the air pump technology. The air pump in the cushion contains bubbles that functions to disperse a thin layer of BB liquid onto the skin with just a light pat. I was told my face temperature will instantly cool by at least 3 degree celcius immediately after patting with the puff.

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ comes with a special puff.

p/s: I love the mirror that comes with it too ! Foundation, puff and mirror all in a compact = perfect !

This special puff is designed to absorb less moisture than any ordinary puff so that the face stays refreshed.

Upon application, it gives the skin a refreshing soothing and cooling sensation.

Tips on How to Take care of the Puff
Keep the puff clean at all time and gently massage it to lukewarm water with neutral detergent or puff cleanser to wash it. Rise throughly until the detergent is washed away, squeeze out moisture and dry completely in cool dry place. This way you will be able to use it for an extended period of time.

The puff and cushion are in two seperate containers to preserve the acrive ingredients ad their functionality. This product is formulated with five active ingredients namely Silymarin Bead Tree and y-PGA for a whitening and moisturizing effect, Mineral Water to provide cooling refreshing sensation to the skin, and Sun Protection ingredients.

Let me show you a comparison before and after using it. All these pictures are without any touch-up.



The recommended method of using this Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++liquid foundation is that you must use puff to pat on our skin build up the foundation evenly.

Mr Steven said that in order to create glowing look, we should dab a bit more of Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ foundation on our temple, nose and cheek area.

Close up before & after

Review : I can see Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ immediately brightened up my skin complexion and gave me an an even medium coverage where some of the pigmentation and spots are properly covered/hidden with just one layer of application. It wasn't sticky & actually quite long lasting after setting it with loose powder.

I put this to a try, by applying this on the morning before I went to Kuala Selangor for an outdoor activity with Tourism Selangor and after all those activities under the hot sun, I must say Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ foundation stays pretty well on my skin even after the outing and I could now say that it is really sweat proof!

I tried Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ foudation using the recommended method which is using the special puff and pat on my face my face and I did feel the cooling sensation instantly for the first few second. And when I used to apply directly with my fingers I do not feel the cooling sensation at all. Applying with the puff needs a little more of technique because the foundation that picked by the puff is not even and need keep dabbing to build up the foundation. I have master the technique of using it after a few tries and now it is so easy to apply that I am falling in love with it!

: An even medium coverage, Sweat proof, High SPF, cooling sensation when applying with the puff

Cons : The refill (15g) don't last me very long

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ is selling a set at RM145 with one extra refill at all Laneige's counter nationwide.

Review : Laneige Styling Romantic Eye Palette from Laneige’s Styling Romantic Fall/Winter Makeup Collection

Laneige Styling Romantic collection was created in conjuction with the holiday season 2011. Hence do expect the eyeshadows colour to be glittery as it's usually party party party time during year end!

It comes with 2 applicators. And I do notice one of the applicator has a bigger "head" and I thought will be great to use to apply on all over the eyelid but the sponge applicator don't really seems to pick up the powder that well.. And I'm always happy to use my fingers to apply & blend because I find it faster and the blending looks better!

The 3 colours in this Laneige Styling Romantic Eye Palette are Pearly Beige, Shimmer Cocoa and Deep Brown.

Instruction to use from Laneige's website

1. Essence Type : Creamy type shadow that can be spread over the entire eye lid to enhance the shadow colors, and reapplied on the upper eye for highlighting final pearl-touch.

2. Shimmer Type : Base color & indistinctive pearlescent shadow that allows natural color gradation.

3. Powder Type : Can draw an eye line and naturally connect to the underline.

The colours are quite sheer and need a few layers to application to build up the colours. As you can see all the colours are very glittery.

As the colours are not super pigmented, I use it to create natural makeup. Took me a little bit more time to apply because colours dont really show up.

My complete looked with the Laneige Styling Romantic Eye Palette , Laneige Styling Romatic Lip Duo in Coral Beige and Laneige Styling Romantic Blusher #2!

I guess this eyeshadow will be great for people who would wanted light & natural makeup to go for work. And to make it a night look, I guess mascara and thick eyeliner would do the trick.

Laneige Styling Romantic Eye Palette are selling at Laneige's counter for RM80
