Innisfree Olive Real Skin Review

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Helen here! Hope you are doing well on this fine Wednesday. If you have not checked out our blog anniversary giveaway, go and try your luck!  

I am back today to review the Inisfree Olive Real toner. I reviewed the lotion from the same skincare line a couple months ago, so it is only fitting that I review the toner as well. I have tried many lotions and toners, but not many make it on my repurchase list. Did this Innisfree Olive Real Skin make it onto my repurchase list? Read on to find out.

Innisfree Aloe Revital Skin Mist Review

Innisfree Aloe Revital Skin Mist

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

It was my day off yesterday and I woke up to the news of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. It was not a good start to the day. I couldn't believe it when I first heard it, but as the day went on it started to sink in. This IT couple has been together for 12 years and hearts are breaking everywhere over this news. I can only imagine how hard this is for them. We at DTC are sending nothing but love and support.

Anyways, I was going to share this review yesterday but after the not-so-good start I spent most of my day watching Asian drama. (Ha) Very unproductive, I know, but I needed something to patch this over. In case you are wondering, I'm currently watching Cinderella & Four Knights and Love O2O. I was watching Scarlet Heart Ryeo, but I'm putting that on hold for a bit. I generally like to watch dramas after the season has ended so I don't have to wait eagerly every week. Although there are some exceptions and these are usually dramas that I just can't wait!

Moving on, this review is all about the Innisfree Aloe Revital Skin Mist. I've been using this all summer and I'm just about 2/3 way done with my first bottle. Yes, I have 2 of these. I purchased them during Innisfree's Mist Festival sale, the same sale that I got my Canola Honey Jelly Mists from. I probably would have tried this mist sooner but I find I go through mists rather slowly. I thought I would carry them everywhere I go and use them whenever. However, while I do carry one everywhere I go, I don't always have the time to use it. Come to think of it, I really use mists more often when I'm at home than when I'm out. Nevertheless, I've been using this Innisfree Aloe mist all summer and it's definitely grown on me. Let's get to know it!

Nooni Advanced Repair Therapy Super Revitalizing Gel Cleanser Review

Nooni Advanced Repair Therapy Super Revitalizing Gel Cleanser

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

I'm in love with gel cleansers this year! Early last year I tried my first ever gel cleanser and it didn't go well. It kind of put me off gel cleansers for a while. However, when Cosrx came out with their gel cleanser last year and everyone was raving about it, I was curious. So I made a purchase to try it and that was the best decision ever because that gel cleanser is the bomb. It made me wonder, what other awesome gel cleansers am I possibly missing out on.

Fast forward to present time, I've been testing out this Nooni Advanced Repair Therapy Super Revitalizing Gel Cleanser for over a month. (Man, what a long name.) Nooni is an in house brand of Memebox and my mom and I have tried a few products from them. They are generally a skincare brand offering products from cleansers to toner, creams and more. I tested out the Nooni Gel Cleanser because I wanted to know how comparable this cleanser is to the Cosrx Gel Cleanser. Let's find out!

Skin18 Mask Reviews

Skin18 Mask Reviews

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

If you follow us on Instagram, you've probably seen our mini reviews on these masks from Skin18. Skin18 is an online retailer that mainly focuses on skincare products. They offer a wide variety of products from sheet masks to cleansers, moisturizers, mists and more! Skin18 believes that skincare is important as skincare products can heal, protect and nourish the skin. Thus, they offer a wide selection of skincare products to care for all the different skin issues.

As beauty lovers, we both agree that skincare is really important (you can probably tell through the products we use). We each have different skin issues and we use different skincare products to address these issues. Our ultimate goal is to have happy and healthy skin! One of the many types of products we have in our skincare routines are masks. Not only can masks help to care for a variety of skincare issues, they are also very relaxing and everyone needs a little me-time now and then. So we always have a stash of masks on hand and we are always on the look out for new masks to add to our stash. Some of the masks we got to try recently are from Skin18, let's get to know them.

Nooni Advanced Repair Therapy Super Revitalizing Cream Review

Nooni Advanced Repair Therapy Super Vitalizing Cream

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Fall is just around the corner. Are you prepared to switch over to your fall routine yet? I have been slowly adding in my fall products and subtracting my summer products from my current routine, all the while trying out some new potentials as well. One of these new potentials is this Nooni Advanced Repair Therapy Super Vitalizing Cream.

Nooni is one of Memebox's in-house brands. They offer several skincare lines, one of which is the Advanced Therapy line. The Advanced Therapy line contains the Cream and Gel Cleanser with the main ingredient being Centella Asiatica Extract, which is known to promote cell regeneration and can also lighten scars.

Tosowoong Essence Cushion Review and Swatches

Tosowoong Essence Cushion

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

How was your Labor Day weekend? Did you get some well deserved rest or gone exploring instead? Whatever it was, I hope it was a good long weekend!

My long weekend was pretty darn busy but as always I managed to squeeze in some testing time. Some of the products I've been testing out lately are cushions and the latest one I tried is this Tosowoong Essence Vitalizing Perfect Cover Cushion. This cushion might look plain on the outside, but there's a surprise waiting on the inside. Let's get to know it!

Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream Review

Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream Review

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Do you remember when you first heard about snail slime in skin care products? I do. It was just a couple of years ago and I was surprised by it. At that time, snails were just the itty bitty creatures I would find in my backyard after a rainy day or the tasty treat (escargot) that has been baked and slathered with herb butter that you would find at a French restaurant. So the idea of using snail slime in skin care was a bit surprising and odd at the same time. Honestly, I did not know what to think of it at the time. Initially, I wanted to try it because I was curious. However, at the same time I did not want to try it because it could be gimmicky. So I waited. In hopes that as time goes by, there would be more and more information on snail mucin in skincare and then it can be determined whether it really works or not.

Fast forward to present time, snail filtrate in skincare is really popular and can be found in both eastern and western products. By now, I have tried a couple of skin care products with snail filtrate in them and I can finally say "I have slathered 'snail slime' on my face." Now, I have one more snail skin care product to play with and it is the Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream. The Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream is by far the most potent snail filtrate product I have ever tried and by that I mean it contains the most snail filtrate compared to the other snail mucin products I have tried in the past.

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack: Milk Review

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack: Milk

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

I realize I haven't done a Choosy lip mask review in a while, so here it is! The Choosy Lip Pack in Milk. I've been using up the 'flavors' I've already reviewed, which is why there hasn't been new reviews of them. However, just last week I used the Milk lip pack and I am currently using one as I type so I thought it would be a good time to write a review on this. I purchased Choosy's lip masks because I wanted to try them all. Choosy used to have 2 lines of lip masks but now there are more. I only purchased all the masks from the Peal line and the Original line. The Milk lip mask is from the Original line which also have Fruit, Peach, Herb, and Honey. The Pearl line includes Pink Pearl, White Pearl, Purple Pearl, Gold Pearl, and Black Pearl. Hopefully, I can review them all by the end of the year!

As you guys already know from reading my previous reviews, my lips can be dry and chapped if I don't take care of them. Even though I use lip balms, sometimes I still need extra care to keep them moisturized and soft. That's why once a week I have a mini lip care pampering session to make sure my lips are in tip-top shape for the rest of the week. And lip masks play an important role in that mini session. That's why I always have some on hand. Anyways, let's get to know these Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack in Milk.

Unboxing: Klairs Deep Cleansing Package

Unboxing: Klairs Deep Cleansing Package

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Do you have a favorite brand(s)? A brand you want to try more products from or learn more about? I know I do. Whether it's a brand that's been loved for years or one that's just recently discovered, there are tons of brands on the market just waiting to be explored. And, sometimes, the best way to try out a brand and its products is through Brand Boxes. There has been tons of Brand Boxes from different companies in the past, like the Leaders Mask box where I discovered some of my favorite masks and the Cosrx Box that had all the products from Cosrx that I wanted to try.

So, when I learned that Wishtrend was planning to start a Brand Package series featuring various brands I was super excited for it. To kick off the Brand Package Series, Wishtrend is starting with one of their favorite brands, Klairs. The Klairs Deep Cleansing Package has just been released and we are going to get to know all the products in it!

Tonymoly Panda's Dream Brightening Eye Base Review

Tonymoly Panda's Dream Brightening Eye Base

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Are you plagued by dark circles like me? There used to be a time when I didn't have to worry about dark circles, but now I have skincare products and makeup products to brighten and cover them. From eye creams to eye patches, and more; I've tried a lot of products to help reduce dark circles. While some worked, others have left me disappointed which is why my search continues.

Tonymoly is known for their adorably packaged products and the Panda's Dream line have been around for a while now. Obviously, as someone who likes cute stuff, I was bound to get some of them. While I would like all of the products from the Panda's Dream line, so far I've only purchased this Brightening Eye Base and the So Cool Eye Stick to try. I was hoping that this Brightening Eye Base would help to brighten my under eye areas enough that I don't need to use a concealer or that it would brighten and work as a base for my concealer. Read on to see if it fulfills my wishes!

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Review

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

The liquid lipstick trend has been going strong and honestly I don't think it's going anywhere any time soon. Many brands are coming out with their own variations of the product and there are so many factors that differentiate them from each other. I am still on the hunt for my potential HG liquid lipstick. There are quite a few liquid lipsticks I want to try and compare with the ones I currently have. However, I'm currently on a low-buy at the moment (saving those dollars for something fun~) so the comparison will have to wait.

Anyways, today I want to share my thoughts on these Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquids. The line has 10 shades, which are Nude Thrill, Nude Flush, Pink Charge, Electric Pink, Orange Shot, Berry Boost, Fuchsia Ecstasy, Rebel Red, Possessed Plum, and Vivid Violet. I have the shades Rebel Red and Nude Flush, let's get to know them.

Bonvivant Botanical Mellow Clay Masks Review

Bonvivant Botanical Mellow Clay Masks Review

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Memebox's house brand, Bonvivant, has been coming out with lots of new masks lately. First there was the Illuminator Age Cover masks. Then last month, they introduced these 3 Bonvivant Botanical Mellow Clay Masks which I will be reviewing today. This month they will be releasing a new line of sheet masks, the Botanical Pure Mask Packs! It'll come with 6 different types, (and actually it looks like they are already on the site, although their official release date is set to be July 12th ^^).

Anyways, I was super excited for these Bonvivant Botanical Mellow Clay Masks. There were a ton of previews about them and since I've been really into the multi-masking trend (or rainbow masking trend), these seemed like the perfect addition. The Botanical Mellow Clay Mask line comes with 3 types of clay masks and they are the Jeju Volcanic, Mint Tea Tree, and Hawaiian Pink Clay. Let's get to know them!

TONYMOLY LIPTONE Lip Care Sticks Review

TONYMOLY LIPTONE Lip Care Sticks review.

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

What's your favorite lip balm? My favorite was the adorable macaron lip balm from It's Skin until 2 months ago when something unexpected happened and I had to stop using it. Since then, I've been digging through my stash to find something that can replace the macaron lip balm. The dig didn't take long because I found these TONYMOLY LIPTONE Lip Care Sticks I purchased early this year. I've always love lip balms in stick forms, as they are my preferred packaging because they are easy to use and more sanitary. While adorably packaged lip balms are too cute to say no to, I still dislike having to use my fingers to apply them. So, whenever I find promising lip balms in stick forms, I make sure to check them out.

The LIPTONE Lip Care line has 4 products. 3 lip balms and 1 lip scrub. These 2 I purchased are the lip balms in flavors rose and mint. There's also the honey flavored lip balm and the lip scrub, which is a sugar scrub that also contains shea butter.
