Beauty Empties | Sheet Masks 8.0

Sunday 30 June 2019

Here we are again at another Empties post for sheet masks! I've rounded up all the sheet masks that I've used throughout the past 3 months and the total is 30. I know it's considerably low compared to previous quarters but I've been focusing a lot on finishing my opened essences, serums and ampoules and I am trying my best to use soon-to-be expired masks that I have in my stash so let's go in-depth about some masks that I've been loving.

I legit really like the sheet for this mask line from FORENCOS but unfortunately these 7 DAYS masks are only released for one batch only; you guessed it, with Song Joongki oppa faces on it. Sad!

I've gotten these Illiyoon; hanbang brand from South Korea through a local mask reseller but as much as I love them, they're not worth to sourced direct from Seoul again. Too expensive, I'd say.

I super love these thin sheet masks from Etude House and surely love to repurchase all the variants.

Oh yes, I've discovered these simple, hydrating morning sheet masks from Althea A'Bloom and also a sister brand to B.Liv; Jayeon Cosmetics. Oh, I forgot to mention that you can get these as low as RM2 a piece!

Bunch of Taiwanese sheet masks that I've tried; super love Annie's Way charcoal masks and that CY Lab mask is such a revolution as I've never tried a triple Hyaluronic Acid-containing mask so that one is a definite repurchase. I've also dipped into my Naruko sheet mask stash and used one; the rose one that gives warm sensation which is weird but I love it! 

I guess that's all of it! I'll be seeing you guys on my next post! Annyeong~

Beauty Empties 21.0 | June

Friday 28 June 2019

Here we are at another Empties post for the second quarter of this year! I'm so proud of myself for finishing bunch of products this time around so first, let's go to some skincare products.

As usual, I'm gonna start with cleansers! You guys know that I'm totally dedicated to double cleansing method, right? How about you?

For makeup remover, I have recently finished the most expensive cleansing oil I ever bought in my life! Hah! I'm not exaggerating as that 150ml bottle of that Shu Uemura Anti/Oxi+ Pollutant & Dullness Clarifying Cleansing Oil is retailing at RM143 in their boutique. I've got mine from Imago KK Times Square boutique and it was actually so much fun as I also got to try their makeup and some skincare products. Because of this product, it's actually the first time I ditched the double cleansing method as this oil cleanser is already enough to remove all kinds of makeup and impurities. I already purchased its newer sister product so I'll get this again next time.

For facial cleanser, I've finished the Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser I think around last month but I'll be honest, I don't think I'll be repurchasing as my skin is leaning towards drier side and this cleanser is indeed a high pH product so my skin become even drier because of that. I used it like a third for my face and finished the rest of it as my body cleanser. Love the verbena scent, though!

Finished the first bottle of that Bifesta Bright Up Foaming Whip and I'd be sure to repurchase this one at least as it's the gentlest foam I've ever tried.

I've also finished 2 deluxe samples for cleanser during a quick getaway. I've already finished a full-sized bottle of the LANEIGE Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil and as for the Huxley oil cleanser, I'm not that impressed so I guess I'm going to pass it.

Now, let's move on to first treatment products!

Finished my fourth bottle of THE FACE SHOP The Therapy First Serum and I still loving it and I've already repurchased another backup for it.

I've finished bunch of deluxe samples for Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum the new upgraded version and I like the new better as I feel it's more hydrating. I already opened a new full-sized bottle!

I've tried the Mamonde First Energy Serum deluxe sample but I don't feel it's hydrating enough for my skin so I guess I won't be getting full-sized of it.

I've also finished my first tub of Althea Waterful Green Bamboo Pads that I really like so I bought several tubs more as they're on sale. It's really convenient as it's pre-soaked and I just wipe the pad across my face after I'm out of the shower. The pads are so hydrating and soothing at the same time, I sometimes even use the pads as my point masks.

I've also finished my first bottle of Krave Kale-Lalu-yAHA 5.25% Glycolic Acid Treatment and I am loving this so much! I don't think I can go a week without using this in my evening routine as it really helps smoothing out my skin; my flaky dry patches around my cheeks and chin. I already bought another from a local reseller but man, I cannot wait for the brand to start shipping their products soon!

For toners, I've finished that Dr.G Hyper Brightening Toner but I don't really like it as I don't see any hydrating nor brightening effect so I'm not going to repurchase.

Used up some deluxe samples and you guys know I love that LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner and I've bought full-sizes of that ISOI and Fresh rose toners because I want to compare them both so do stay tuned for that.

The only treatment (essence, serum or ampoule) skincare product that I've finished is that Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Essence and to me it's simply a basic hydrating essence. It does performs similarly to Mamonde Red Energy Recovery Serum but I decided to repurchase latter as it has thicker consistency (being a serum and all) instead of this. I do hope its boosting ampoule sister is better so I'm going to open that soon.


For moisturisers, I've finished the Althea Bare Essentials Fixer Cream - the first one out of the trio and I actually do like it although I'm not going to repurchase this day moisturiser anytime soon as I want to finish other opened products before coming back to this one.

I actually fell in love with that LANEIGE Water Bank cream so I've decided to buy the full-sized only to find the new upgraded Water Bank Hydro Cream at the store. Awesome!

As for that Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream, I absolutely love it! It's great for day skincare routine as it leaves me with ample of hydration for me to pile on matte or tone-up sunscreen on. Already bought the full-sized tub!

Finished my second tube of THE FACE SHOP Natural Sun Eco No Shine Hydrating Sun Cream and already opened my third! It's great for regular indoor days while that Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway is perfect for working days as it gives slight tone-up effect. I have already got my backups during last Althea sale.

Finished all these facial mists about the same time and the only one that I've repurchased in full-sized is that LANEIGE Water Bank but in its new Hydro and Moisture Mists. 

I had breakouts several times for the past few months and I use the THE FACE SHOP Dr. Belmeur Spot Plaster Band during daytime and that COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch for 
nighttime. Both work great and already repurchased.

For sleeping masks, I still have several of that LANEIGE White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Packs in my stash but I'd be sure to finish them soon. It works great but quite pricey to begin with so I haven't got myself the new upgraded White Dew version.

When it comes to lip care, I love lip sleeping mask the most but those from Petitfee is just average I'd say so I decided to repurchase that LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask again for the third time in Vanilla and Grapefruit!

I'm back and forth between Althea Petal Velvet Powder and Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder. I love both of them and and already repurchased like 2 years worth of them as Althea got sale recently and Innisfree released their annual limited edition powder that comes in 13 different designs and I. Got. Them. All. :D

I didn't actually finished the Innisfree No Sebum Blur Primer as I have decided to stick with my top sebum-controlling and pore-blurring primer from Benefit Cosmetics. So, thank you but I guess there's no Next one for me. 

Some of the samples that I've gone through while I'm in the office doing my midday skincare routine! Finally got myself the Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum by the way!

I guess that's all of it! I'll see you guys on my next Empties post! Annyeong~

Review | LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner

Thursday 13 June 2019
Toners have come such a long way from being just a product that you use as the next step in cleansing. These days, you can find all kinds of toners out there, ranging from hydrating and exfoliating ones to soothing and mildly-formulated toners for acne-prone and sensitive skin. Just choose the right ones based on your skin concerns. I myself love layering different toners; from the most lightweight to the thickest in terms of texture. I always start with an exfoliating toner, especially in my evening skincare routine to remove dead skin cells and make way for the rest of my skincare products to be well absorbed.

However, my toner-layering method just stopped working when I had the worst allergic reaction that caused my skin to become red, irritated, and flaky, or so I thought. As it turned out, I needed to combine a moisturising toner with a stronger exfoliating toner; Glycolic Acid treatment to really smooth out the flaky skin. I've tried several different toners that are powered by Hyaluronic Acids, ceramides, and other hydrating ingredients, but I kept my options open. One day, I got my hands on a deluxe-sized sample of the Cream Skin Refiner from one of my favourite Korean skincare brands under AmorePacific, LANEIGE. I think it's safe to say that my search for a hydrating toner is over and I quickly got myself the full-sized product. Before I go further into this highly-raved skin care product, let's get to know it a little bit more.

Product Description:
A Cream that melts into a Skin Refiner. This hydrating skin refiner provides ample moisture to the skin at the very first step of skincare routine.

Capacity: 150ml

Water / Aqua / Eau, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Polyglyceryl-10 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Propanediol, Disodium Edta, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Tocopherol.


The Cream Skin Refiner comes in a pretty frosted glass bottle. Want to bring it along during your travels? Transfer some into a travel-friendly bottle to prevent accidental breakage.


There's simple product description printed on the back side of the box but also full description in the brochure that comes with every LANEIGE product.

Highlight on the ingredient; White Leaf Tea Water that's rich in amino acids that soothe the skin and reinforce the skin moisture barrier, making the skin truly healthy - which I have to agree!

Notice the sticker below there? That's the proof I've got mine (the first bottle) from LANEIGE Malaysia via their Official Lazada store during the product launch online before the stocks hit their beauty counters in departmental stores, etc. The promotion was to get a bottle at the retail price and get the miniature in 50ml for free. Definitely appreciate that as I've been traveling and I just love carrying this in my office bag so I can replenish my moisture in my mid-day skincare routine; layers of this toner and reapply my sunscreen.


The product features a unique cap that I have not encountered before. It has a lock system to prevent spillage, so make sure you twist the cap until you hear the 'click' sound. Notice the relief at the neck of the bottle?

The expiry date is printed at the bottom of the bottle in YYYYMMDD (Year-Month-Day) format. 



The toner has a milky-looking watery texture that felt nice on my skin. I always use cotton pads for first liquid-based product application after cleansing routine, but if I were to use first treatment essence, serum, or ampoule prior to this toner, then I would apply it by pouring a few drops into my palms and spread it well on my face.


Once applied, the toner slightly dries down and my skin felt so nicely hydrated. I followed up with thick-textured essence, serums, and/or ampoules after this toner; essentially the rest of my skincare routine. On lazy nights when I'm too exhausted to do my usual full routine, I'd be deep cleansing my skin and applying this toner several times before putting on a sleeping mask. I'd still be waking up with well-moisturised skin!

I didn't use the Cream Skin Refiner every day as I still love layering lightweight hydrating toners on daily basis. However, this toner is the only one I'd be using after every Glycolic Acid-infused product. The reason is because this toner really helps in replenishing moisture loss as glycolic acid can potentially dry out and irritate my skin. Thanks to the White Leaf Tea content (high in amino acid), it provides better moisturisation hence strengthens the skin barrier. I can totally tell that my skin is feeling much smoother.

If you have normal to oily skin that's dehydrated like mine, a single layer of this toner would be suffice. If you have dry to normal skin, then I'd recommend layering this toner at least 2 times per application in your morning and night skincare routines.

Overall, I give this toner a 5/5! I love it; it works well with my dehydrated skin. Plus, it helps so much in repairing my skin when it was recovering from the flaky situation. Now that I'm about to finish my first bottle after about 2 months (at the time of this post), I'm glad that I purchased another one (and then some more) as backup.

Have you tried this lovely hydrating toner? Let me know your thoughts below in the comment section. Until next post, annyeong~
