Sheet Mask Review Episode 5: May and June 2016 Facial Mask Collection

I know that I have been so slacked off in my sheet masking routine recently. You know, things got tough. I had been busy with my work, organizing my skincare stashes, shopping for new stuffs, reading off other people's reviews and also selling off some unused gadgets. Anyway, all I was saying was that I had no time for sheet masking. I don't even keep my routine lengthy. Everything was short and quick and when I got to bed it was already 1AM without any more time for sheet mask.

So, yeah, let's us start with this rather short sheet mask mega post!

Is Cheap Good? Review: A.H.C Capture Collagen Ampoule

I found A.H.C when I was on the hunt for a better eye cream, which was how I found A.H.C Private Eye Cream for Face (Season 3). I couldn't find a lot of information about the brand itself, presumably because they are mostly in Korean and not a lot of Mandarin or English speaking websites are talking about it. I was informed by a Taiwanese Facebook skincare retailer that A.H.C, just like Neogence and Dr. Wu in Taiwan, is a popular doctor brand in Korea, which I am not sure if that's true but I was willing to give it a try.

I got two ampoules from the brand, namely the A.H.C Capture Collagen Ampoule and the Capture Hyaluronic Ampoule. The packaging looks aesthetic and professional though, which actually gives me the confidence that this is a doctor brand.

Review: Secret Key Black Snail Original Cream

Have you ever come across any instances where everyone is raving about a specific ingredient, and then you are hooked because of your formidable curiously? Snail cream is one of these wallet-hurting trends that is still blowing wild now.

Few months ago, I came passed a vlog comparing different snail creams, with a few like It’s Skin, Namulife Snail White being mentioned. I had the It’s Skin one and was very pleased with the performance of it, hence when this vlog also recommending a black snail cream from Secret Key that was “pleasant” and “cheap”, I was sold.

I have tried some Secret Key products before, they were pretty decent at their prices especially their Starting Treatment Essence so I thought I wouldn't be wrong this time. Hence, I impulsively placed an order from Koreadepart to have the snail cream shipped to me. Let’s find out about the cream below!

Comparison Review of 7 First Serum / Skin Booster: Sulwhasoo, Hanyul, Innisfree, Belif, Goodal and Mamonde

It's no secret that I love treatment essence. I have reviewed 5 of them, and have at least 10 lining up in my wardrobe. Given my love for treatment essence, one would expect me to like first serum as well, which is just about the same thing as treatment essence, but are they? In this review, we're gonna talk further on first serum and discussed 7 first care products I'd personally tried.


First serum refers to skin booster with a thicker and concentrated consistency than treatment essence that you use immediately after cleansing and before a toner. Unlike treatment essence that mainly renews, regenerates and exfoliates, first serum focuses more on deep hydration, skin activating and nourishing.

I realize that there are more treatment essence than first serum in the market, probably due to general consumer preference for treatment essence. At least you can always relate to SK-II Pitera Essence when you are trying to sell your treatment essence, right?

Besides, there is also some confusion between first serum and normal serum. This line is getting blurred as more serum has lighter consistency nowadays. For me, it is pretty straightforward. Anything that says "first serum" in its packaging is what I will use as a first care product. All others are considered normal serum. In fact, first serum has lighter consistency and is more refreshing on the skin as they are meant to be your skin appetizer that reminds your skin it is time for breakfast!

Problematic, dull, dehydrated and dry skin will benefit the most from a first serum as it preps and revitalizes the skin before layering it with nutrition. It opens up the skin's appetizer for better nutrition absorption.

Review: Mamonde First Energy Serum

When I first got this serum, I thought oh wow what a beautiful little thing this it, like a shy young lady waiting to be discovered. The bottle is small but sturdy so you wouldn't break it even if you drop it on the floor.
