LEEGEEHAM is no stranger when it comes to skincare, they are one of the popular skincare brands in Korea. I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to review there ever popular Tea Tree 90 Essence which has been a cult favorite product for years and has been featured in many magazines and beauty blogs

I got into a small skincare related accident/ adverse reaction a couple of days back due to my own negligence( didn't read Te label of an acid toner carefully and ended up damaging my skin) my skin was red and blotchy and there was swelling I was afraid that this reaction will darken my skin over time due to chemical burns.  my skin has reached a point where injuries/wounds leave hyper pigmented scars. So a frantic search through my skincare stash o found the  Leejiham Tea Tree 90 Essence and has a lot of claims to sooth the skin and reduce irritation that i decided to take the risk and apply it to my face. And was so surprised when this actually  saved my skin and helped it calm down. It reduced the redness and reduced the flare up on my skin. My skin is better now thankfully

 Tea tree is actually quite popular agent for acne and inflammation and this essence contains 90% tea tree 🙆. I have been eyeing a lot of tea tree skincare products fro a fairly long time and I am so happy that I tried this out


The vial is a frosted white glass and has such a cute small glass dropper to dispense product. Its does not smells like tea tree though which disappointed me a tiniest bit ( I love the scent of tea tree its so refreshing). this contains 50 ml product which may seem little as this essence a tad bit on the expensive side but no worries as 2-3 drop are sufficient to cover the whole face 

 the texture is very thin and light weight so it absorbs into the skin after a couple of pats. I usually take 3 drops of this and pat it onto the chin and cheeks (places where i get most acne) hyper pigmentation or blemishes.It looks luminous and healthy


 My skin produces less oil every time I apply this to my face. This is a morning time essence for me as my skin produces most oil during the day. Serums /essence like these are best for people who have oily/ acne prone skin. I am very impressed by Tea tree performance and would definitely purchase skincare/ makeup products which contain tea tree as one of their star ingredients

retails for 45$ at Glow recipe website

please note that this is the new packaging of the essence

Being enrolled in medicine comes with its own perks, you can never have enough time because very spare time that you get is either spent catching up on the sleep that was lost due to studying or is spent catching up on the chores that need to be done.
being the skincare addict that i have become i want my skin to look flawless at all times but what to do when i have an evening/morning rotation and cant afford the luxury of skin pampering

i was super excited when i received this cool MAKEUP;PAL simplified skincare sample sized foils in my mail .which BTW carries all basic skincare products one would need in a hurry
*A round of Applause for the brand to come up with such a brilliant idea*




there are a total of 4 foils. each contains a separate product in it .


Step 1: Toner brightening balance


this is a slightly opaque toner which has little to no scent. ( I detected a faint floral scent but almost negligible) . It spreads easily and absorbs immediately into the skin. This restores the moisture balance of the skin which was lost after cleansing


Step 2 : Lotion Brightening


this smells mildly of roses( the scent is not artificial). The texture is very light and liquid-y so this absorbs into the skin after a few pats I have noticed that this brightens the complexion after




Step 3 : Cream white tone up


this has to be the  best brightening cream I have ever used. Firstly this smells of farangipani ( my favorite flower btw) secondly this just blurs out the pores, smooths out all imperfections on the skin and makes the skin instantly bright. I can totally skip wearing foundation / bb cream after wearing this cream. Its spreads evenly on the skin and leaves semi matte finish. If Makeup:pal ever decided to sell this cream separately I am going go be their one loyal customer 😉


Step 4 : Sunblock


the sunblock is a little on the heavier side and gives luminous glowy complexion. This does bot leave white cast nor does it has any scent so this is perfect for flash photography. This contains maximum sun protection SPF PA+++




Altogether I totally love this new skincare concept by MAKEUP:PAL . Its super convenient for people who have tough work routines
the packaging is cute and slim so this fits easily into purse or pocket moreover if you are going on a short 2-3 dats trip you can take this along with you. Not to mention this follows the airplane safety guidelines so this perfect to take it along with you on a flight


Each foil contains 1.5 ml of product which is good enough to be used twice 😍.


this comes in box of 10 and retails for 20$ each. Totally good value for your money particularly when you have four skin care products in one leaf

So my quest for the perfect sheetmaks fro oily skin continues and on my way i have found these amazing CHIK'O BEAUTY Sheet masks that retails for 80$ TW, these masks delivery all theclaims made on the box and i am super impressed by the their quality

they are very honest with the Ingredients list and have some really cool stuff added in these mask serum formula which really boost up complexion and hydrate skin


I will start with the CHIKO MASKTONE ENERGIZING & MOISTURIZING INVISIBLE SHEET MASK 

see how cute and brilliant the packaging looks. i love how they came up with this fun pantone look alike packaging idea its so different from all the sheetmask available in the market plus I am pretty sure they are going to add more sheet masks to there  collection pretty soon

this sheetmask has a scent less serum which is like water (with added moisture and hydration benefits) the sheet mask is packed carefully in a plastic cover as the fibers of the mask are fragile and can be deformed easily if one is careless

the serum is in the packet is generous and absorbs pretty quickly into the skin , i love these kind of masks for oily skin as they are fuss free and one can totally jump onto the next skincare step. there is no tacky feel of the left over serum. unlike the other mask in range this only provides moirure to the skin no brightening effect,

this mask is best suited for all skin types

i know i look kind of creepy with this on but my skin looked so good afterwards

 CHIK'O Masktone Whitening & Brightening Invisible Sheet Mask

This must be match made in heaven for my oily skin ❤  I tried out this CHIK'O Masktone Whitening & Brightening Invisible Sheet Mask and this is seriously one of the best sheet mask i have tried in a while

 




just like the previous mask the packaging  of this mask has its own unique design inspired from Pantone color 🃏. Inside the foil the sheetmask is placed next to a plastic cover. The material of the mask  must be silk or tencel (be careful when pulling out the mask, its delicate and very stretchable I almost destroyed the mask) Even though it says 25ml the sheet is totally dripping. I squeezed off the excess for later use hehe 😁

The fit of the mask is good. The cut outs for eyes nose and mouth are of appropriate dimension. This masks clings onto the face like second skin( feels really good) compared to cotton/cellulose sheet masks this is definitely close to invisible (you can see my face 😉) The serum/essence is colorless, non tacky and absorbs into the skin straight away leaving behind matte finish to the face. Tranexamic acid,Vitamin C , papaya and 🍍 enzymes are the chief ingredients ( collagen boosting and exfoliating ) there is slight medicinal smell to the mask but its not strong and disappears after a fee minutes. I left this mask on my face until the sides of the sheet began to dry out i.e 45mins

💃 Results:
my face looked fairer than my neck 😅 ( The brightening effect of this mask is very noticeable ) and the effect last through out the day 🙌  minus skin irritation and breakouts





 5/5 💎💎💎💎💎
 This  in box of 5 sheetmask. These make are a steal for the 💵

I am so excited to share the products I bough recently. If you follow my blog on instagram then you must be already aware about the product I am going to show you guys. I purchased these from Beauty joint.com and The Skinmaskuarade


Firstly I purchase  this cute Innisfree LE X Emoji No sebum powder. This is one of the most hyped up loose powder in the Korean beauty world . Pretty much every blogger swear buys this product. Since I have a Skin as oily as an oil slick.  This sounded like a dream product for my skin. I have used this product for almost a months and soon I will be sharing my thoughts on this powder so if you are curious keep watching this space.


Next up is also a cult favourite product the Misha M Magic Cushion in shade #21. My first ever cushion foundation. I have used this only once and so far I am totally amazed by the finish it provides .i will continue to use this product for some time and then give your guys my honest opinion
I loved watching a Korean drama featuring Ji Chang Wook and Yoona called The K2 and that's how i was  first introduced to this cute wine lip tint by chateau labiotte after scanning many online stores and reading numerous reviews I finally saw the minis on beauty joint for 3.25 $ and that when I added this to my cart. The tube is so tiny and so cute  😍
Its skin is one of the lesser known Korean brand which makes a lot of great products. I have sallow skin so decided to invest in a color correcting base to neutralize my skin tone. Cute isn't it??

Today I am going to share my thoughts on the popular scream serum by Natural pacific. Now if your skin is damaged this stings a lot but on my skin this surprisingly  didn't stung at all ( does that mean my skin is healthy 👀)


Today I am going to share my thoughts on the popular scream serum by Natural pacific. Now if your skin is damaged this stings a lot but on my skin this surprisingly  didn't stung at all ( does that mean my skin is healthy 👀)

Quantity: 50 ml
Price : 21$

Packaging: Frosted glass bottle/ vial with a glass dropper. The lid is secure so no fear of it being spilled but this bottle is not travel friendly because its made out of glass



About the product:

This serum has a strong zesty/ citrusy scent. Its a biphasic serum meaning it has two layers the upper is oil based while the bottom layer is water based. To get the best of the worlds shaking the bottle prior to use is recommended.


 The serum is amber colored and has a very runny texture. It spreads easily onto the skin. I place 5 drops of the serum on to my palm spread it evenly and then pat it onto my face. I have been using this for quite sometime and have noticed how my skin texture has improved over time



The pores on my skin have reduced to some extent and I have noticed slight glow too. What I love about this serum is that this does not feel greasy even though it has oil in it nor does it cause breakout.  It takes about 20-30 minutes for the serum to absorb immediately into the skin.

i really recommend this serum as it its suitable for all skin types
