[Review] MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream

Standard

I’ve been dying to review this for so long but never got to take proper photos etc for it cos it can get quite messy when putting skincare and trying to take photos.

BUT i’ve done it! cant wait to share this with you guys. this product is the MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream, which is one of the Star products of MISSHA when i was there last Dec.

im always curious to try the snail related products which is all the hype now so yeah, must buy!!

i chose this photo from the net cos the jar is so glossy you can never take a proper photo without seeing your camera’s reflection.

don’t believe? see..

so hard to read the words lor.

Here’s the extract from MISSHA SITE

ANTI AGING & WHITENING

– COLORANT-FREE/ PARABEN-FREE/ MINERAL OIL-FREE

This skin reconstructing cream with an innovative formula of full Vital Snail Mucus Extract with Cell Energy Awakening Botanical Stem Cell.

* Snail Mucus Extract provides new beauty solution to troubled skin with Irritation, Flaw Marks, Dark Skin Tone and Suppleness Skin.

* Botanical Stem Cell reveals purified skin with concentrated skin care for several Pigmentation or Scar Mark.

Directions:

After using emulsion, apply liberally along skin texture and gently pat to be absorbed

the consistency is very gelish and light. i really wish i didnt have to put my finger inside to scoop out cos its quite unhygenic but im too lazy to have a spatula and wipe off and store in the drawer which is not v clean too.

it blends easily INTO the skin cos of the light texture, which is awesome. i personally prefer gels to creams (although this says CREAM but i think its more GEL).
this smells like cucumber really and i dont have the ingredient list 😦

i enjoy putting this on my face every morning and night cos its refreshing to smell and feel and keeps my skin hydrated all day.
i sincerely hope the snail slime is doing its magic to regenerate and renew my cells!!

In terms of results, i think this is so so.. i dont feel that my scars are gone easily nor wake up to clear skin as i expected.

as a regenerative cream, i would expect myself to look younger after months of usage. so far i think i look the same..

but i still think its a fabulous moisturizer and wouldnt mind getting this again if its cheap like korea standard price

Standard

I chose raspberry as it is for nourishing and firming, smthg which i need 😀

photo (10)

like any mask sheet, i place this on my skin after washing and applying the MISSHA Time Revolution Facial Treatment Essence

photo (11)
i like how this came with the flaps for eyes but i also never use the flaps.

i’ve used this about 5 times and am happy with it – its moisturizing and my skin feels taut and firm after each use.

you’ll have seen this photo in my previous post. this is right after peeling of the mask sheet and patting the essence in.

[Review] MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence

Standard

One of my purchases in Korea last Dec was this! it was highly recommended by the sales assistant and its apparently comparable to SK2!! as this was much cheaper and they were having their xmas sale, i bought it!

and last but not least

sounds really cool right!!

personally, i use this to replace my toner, twice a day. In the morning and at night after washing my face

i usually put a small amount on a cotton pad and swipe all over my face before the next step of serum

IMG_2008

i liek how this makes my skin more moisturised and firm. especially before my next step of serum.

i dont feel that skin has become clearer though.

Also, ever since i started using this, i feel that my skin has become more sensitive, such that when i apply this sometimes there is a stingy feeling – i hope its not because this is too strong or reacts with my skin…

Note that as this is made of fermented substance, there will be some kind of smell which is very faint and doesnt bother me at all.

im still considering if i should continue using this. as i do not see or feel VISIBLE difference and i miss using my regular toners.

[Review] MISSHA Anti Trouble Patch & Firming Eye Patch

Standard

As you may know, i was in Korea in December and i had some huge acnes popping out.
i was quite upset cos i thot the weather would be perfect for better skin,
and it was not the time of the month.

so i bought some stuff hopefully for quick fix and test the effectiveness!

First up,
The MISSHA speedy solution Anti Trouble Patch.
IMG_0925

i have no idea what its saying..
IMG_0922

it came in 10 stickers of various sizes but defitely large enough to cover your deveploping ache.
IMG_0923

i pasted 2. one below my left nostril and one near where my finger is pointing.
not very obvious right the sticker. i think it is designed to be worn out as well.
IMG_0924

Does it work?
i wore it to bed and when i woke up i do feel that the pimple did not increase in size.
normally for me it would when it is in the developing stage.
so im rather happy.
but of cos there is still a bump and i waited for it to ripe and yes i squeeze it.
all is good now.

i would say this works to stop the inflamation and prevent swelling 🙂

secondly, to reduce my eye bags, i got this!
IMG_0925

IMG_0926

i really like the material. its like thick felt fabric material, which is heavier compared to the other eye patches i have tried.
it is cooling and comfortable to my skin as well.
IMG_0927

so this is how i look before bed.
IMG_0928

Does it work?
i think it does slightly. i think i took out the eye patch about 45 min later and continue sleeping.
the skin under my eye felt firmer and moisturized!

these are rather cheap i cant remember the exact price but i recalled it was about 1500 won maximum (SGD1.70)

Korea Trip Stash!

Standard

An Yeong Haseyo!

Korea is really the land of skincare and my skincare heaven! there’s so many variety and product range is soooo extensive that by day 1 shopping i feel that all these products are just gimmicks and walking down myeong-dong is like a competition to see which skincare brand has the best marketing to draw in customers… but still i am a good tourist and i bought loads!

and all those who serve me in shops are PRC.. by default i am also a PRC to the sales assistants so i always have to correct them.

want to see what i bought from my korea winter trip? these includes things for my friends so not all is mine k

i have took photos according to brands and here’s where 90% of my shopping goes to

LANEIGE

IMG_1558
MISSHA- one of my fave brands!!

IMG_1919

The Face Shop

all the premium masks for Syd and other stuff for friends. only thing for me is the Volcanic Clay nose pore pack which i reviewed before and likes

The nose pore pack selling liek 28 sheets for a less than SGD10 i think. i buy gmarket SGD2.90 ONE sheet.

IMG_1921

Etude House & Nature Republic
IMG_1923

and how can i forget my Girls Generation official merchandise from their homeland. Chocolates and Perfume

i realise yesterday that the perfume is not their real official merchandise but they only endorse it, i feel cheated abit man 😦
IMG_1924

I try to hit 30,000 won per store so that i can claim VAT refund but for etude huose and Nature republic i didnt hit.

HOLIKA HOLIKA
i also bought alot of lipsticks mini ones for friends but i gave away before the photo 😦

I wish i can buy more but i shall not go too far. i think this should be able to last me for a good year or 2. by then new pdts will be on the market so i will buy then…

i also bought a zara bottom and a fluffy sweater and food stuff for colleauges and family.

i didnt bring my credit card so no aftershock next month. think i spend SGD1,000 ++?

My “half-face” Test – MISSHA vs L’OREAL

Standard

although i experiment with alot of skincare products,
i usually dont see the visible results as apparent as others.
i dont know why, but i tell myself it is part of a long term benefit.
like drinking ample water every day…

so i started putting stuff on half my face,
as you might have seen in my Lancome Brightening Essence post

this time, i am try the L’OREAL White Laser Anti-spot brightening essence
to the RIGHT side of my face

on my left side, i use the MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION WHITE CURE REAL EXPERT SERUM (omg i feel out of breath typing it)

After abuot 4 – 6 weeks…

MY LEFT SIDE IS NOTICEABLY AND SIGNIFICANTLY FAIRER AND BRIGHTER THAN MY RIGHT SIDE!

i am surprised at the disparity, and slightly worried as i need to start pampering my right side now.
so now i am putting the MISSHA serum on my right twice a day, the left – once.

BUT i must say that, the l’oreal anti spot essence did lighten the pigmentation on my right cheek, but MISSHA one doesnt lighten the pigmentation on my left.

i cant wait to get my hands on more korean skincare in December in Korea!
