REVIEW: Swanicoco Biocellpure FGF Pure Ampoule R

Tuesday, February 13, 2018


Hola Amigas! I know I have been MIA for quite a while! Life happens! But I am back with a little review for Y'all! I am almost done with my cute little bottle of Swanicoco's Biocellpure FGF Pure Ampoule R. I received this a while back in my PR package as part of their Project Swans2.

I have been using this product for almost 3 months now and I am nearing on finishing it too. My first impression - it looks so fancy and luxurious with its golden box and bottle! I have always been a fan of a cute and unique packaging. Beautifully packaged things just make me think that the product is actually of high quality - made with love. And this product did not disappoint me! It indeed exceeded my expectation.







This was actually my first ever ampoule and I love everything about it. From the packaging, the dropper style applicator and to the product itself. It has a faint rose smell which is really pleasant to my sensitive sense of smell. The liquid is milky in color and has a runny consistency.    





Here are the simple yet amazing ingredients of this product:

sh-Polypeptide-11, Tocopherol, Allantoin, Carbomer, Arginine, Adenosine, Olibanum, and Rosa Damascena Flower Oil.

As Beauty Tap describes this product:

FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factor) plays a vital role in composing our skin and revitalizing our dermis. FGF heals damaged dermis, increases collagen, strengthens skin layers for a healthier balance, and protects skin! On the other hand, EGF (Epidermis Growth Factor) works to protect the outer layer of your skin. Luckily, Swanicoco’s FGF-1ppm (parts per millions) Pure Ampoule contains both FGF and EGF, and is best for those who are concerned with skin elasticity! This ampoule is created with gentle ingredients that will deliver nutrients to your skin, and give your complexion a youthful glow.

For a lady that's nearing the end of her 20's and welcoming the big 3 this year, I am in need of a product that will keep my skin's elasticity while keeping it moisturized and healthy. I found this as the "just what I needed" product.

I use this twice a day, in my every morning and every night time skincare routine since I really like this product. I use one drop each to my forehead and both cheeks. I love how it absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave any residue or stickiness behind. I am amazed that it does not felt oily either. I love how my skin felt so soft and smooth after application. It indeed helps me achieve a youthful glow! 



Do you guys have a favorite ampoule? Let me know in the comment below!

You can buy this product at Beauty Tap for $53

Mediheal Dress Code Masks Review (Black & Violet)

Tuesday, January 16, 2018


Time for another mask review complimentary from Skin18! My Blogger Level is now 3, which means I was able to receive 3 masks. (Happy Dance๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜)

I was sent this Mediheal Dress Code Masks in Violet and Black. Let me share you my experiences on both.

Let me start by saying that this line of masks from Mediheal made masking a lot more fun with its very unique and cute masquerade design!


I was sent two Dress Code Black masks and one Dress Code Violet mask. The first one I've tried was the Dress Code Black.




Dress Code Black - (Jewel Stone - Whitening Care)

✨Claims: Brighten and Whiten Skin



✨Main Ingredients: Niacinamide, pearl powder extract, sea buckthorn extracts and other natural herb oils.




✨Sheet Mask Details: As I have said, this mask was so fancy and festive! The masquerade design added to the fun of using this mask. Plus how cute are those small red stones?! The sheet mask fabric is relatively thick and easy to put on the face although the eye holes are quite big. But it definitely fits and adheres well. I can still actually sing while wearing it๐Ÿ˜‚ It holds quite an essence which has a nice faint smell that does not linger.






✨My experience: I left it for about 30 minutes and it was still wet when I removed it. It absorbs pretty well but left my face tacky. Brightening wise, I was not impressed since I've tried a couple of masks before that has a more powerful brightening effect than this. But hands down to the hydration it gave my skin, I felt refreshed after a long day outside. 






✨Full Ingredients List: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Panthenol, Trehalose, Betaine, Sea Water, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Lilium Candidum Bulb Extract, Adansonia Digitata Leaf Extract, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Squalane, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Morus Alba Fruit Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Nut Extract, Methylparaben, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Triethanolamine, Polysorbate 80, Adenosine, Fragrance.

✨Price - $20.99 - 10 pcs/pack at Amazon

Dress Code Violet - (Berry - Tone-Up Care)

✨Claims: Skin Toning, Revitalizing and Moisturizing

✨Main Ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid, several high-quality berry oils and extract that effectively brighten and revitalize the skin. 

✨Sheet Mask Details: This mask has a cute masquerade design too but unlike the Dress Code Black, this one has no stones accent to it. The scent was nice but doesn't last long. I love the details of this fun to use masquerade masks by #mediheal



✨My Experience: I left this for more than 30 minutes when it almost dry. I like how it instantly lighten my skin tone. My face looks so fresh and moisturized. It left my skin looking smooth and soft.

Swanicoco Shining Luminous Mask Pack Review

Thursday, December 7, 2017


This is my third mask review series I have for my PR from Swanicoco. Today's mask review is for Natural Bio Cosmetic Dr.Syul Swanicoco Shining Luminous Mask Pack.

This mask is one of the 5 masks I received from Swanicoco. To check the other masks and other skin care products included in my PR package, you can visit my blog post about it here.

About the brand:

Swanicoco is a South Korean Beauty Brand that is known for their naturally-based, fermented and safe beauty products. They become the top natural cosmetics company in the Republic of Korea for their ceaseless bio development research to create a natural biosystem. Interestingly,  the word “Swanicoco” means that they pursue the elegance of a “swan” (feminine), and “coco” means “coconut” (as they offer botanical natural cosmetics).


Mask Claims:

  • Whitening / Brightening
  • Firming
  • Improves Hydration
  • Improves Elasticity
  • Regulation of secreted sebum
  • Helps in Collagen production
  • Stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid
  • Maintains the acid-base balance of the skin
  • Supports skin-regeneration processes



Key Ingredients:

  • Collagen Amino Acids - helps to prevent anti-aging effects

  • Pentapeptide-20 - helps revitalize skin’s building blocks
  • Niacinamide - improves the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and a weakened skin surface




Experience:

It smells like a herbal root of some sort. The mask is drenched with essence but not drippy at all. The sheet mask was a bit big for my face and adherence was just okay. I left it for 20 minutes. My skin felt a bit sticky but not too much. My face felt moisturized and hydrated. However, I did not notice a great brightening effect. My face was left with a slightly dewy finish.




It retails at $2.00 here.


Here is the full list of ingredients:

FoodAHolic Grain Natural Essence Mask Review

Wednesday, November 8, 2017


Another face mask I have the pleasure of reviewing complimentary from Skin18. So let's see how my experience has been.



As most of you already know, I am a face mask lover. So when I discover the Blogger Pack Program of Skin18, I did not hesitate to apply! This was already my 2nd masks I received from them, and currently, I am a Level 2 Blogger in Skin18, which means, I received 2 masks.

Both of the masks I received was the FoodAHolic Grain Natural Essence Mask. This mask, as the name implies, contains grain extracts such as Phaseolus Radiatus (Mung Bean) Seed Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, and Glycine Max (Soybean) Seed extract. These grain extracts claim to supply nutrition to the skin and prevent roughness and dryness to make it glow.



The main claims are NUTRITION & REVITALIZATION. But it also focuses on Smoothing, Wrinkle-improvement, Moisturizing, and improving the elasticity of the skin. 

This was my first 3D-shape mask. It was kind of an odd shape with a seam in the middle but the fit and adherence were both great, it actually covered my entire chin well. It has a nice smell and the essence was just enough, not too dripping.




I left it for 20 minutes on my face and my skin felt soft after.  It has no "wow" effect but it was a good mask in terms of being moisturizing and smoothing.

Dermal Pearl Collagen Essence Mask Review

Tuesday, October 3, 2017



I have been using a facial mask for quite a while now. But this would be my first time reviewing one here in my blog since I usually post my detailed review on my Instagram account.

Well, I hope you enjoy my first Face Mask Blog review, and hopefully, I can post here more often!


So the first mask I will have the pleasure of reviewing is the Dermal Pearl Collagen Essence Mask. To tell you honestly, I have already tried quite a few Dermal Collagen Essence Mask, and as far as I can say, I love all of them!

This particular Pearl Mask was one of my favorites. Its main features are moisturizing, convergence, and brightening

The main ingredients are 0.02% Pearl Powder and 0.2% Hydrolyzed Collagen. The Pearl Powder has found to be of benefits to keep the skin younger-looking and beautiful. It also helps in reducing pore size, lightening the skin’s tone and improving its texture. While on the other hand, Hydrolyzed Collagen helps in supplying amino acids that are necessary for healthy skin. 

Other ingredients include the following:

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis, Leaf Juice, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Beta-Glucan, Panthenol, Tocopherylacetate, Polysorbate 80, Disodium Edta, Xanthan Gum, Perfume, Methylparaben. 







This is generally how I used the mask:

1. Wash off my face, let it dry and apply my usual toner.
2. Remove the sheet mask from the package and unfold it.
3. Put the mask on the face avoiding the eyes and mouth area.
4. Let the mask sit on the face for 20 minutes.



Tip: Refrigerate the mask before using for a refreshing facial treatment.

My overall experience:

The sheet mask has enough essence on it - considerably wet. This mask fits and adheres great on the contours of my face. It has a great smelling mild fragrance too. I love the slightly cooling effect of it on my face. My face was still wet after I removed the mask, so I have to pat dry the remaining essence.

It left my skin felt sticky for a while but made it feeling refreshed and moisturized after. It has also made my skin clearer and brighter.
