Cosrx PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream & Low PH PHA Barrier Mist | Skincare Review



Dehydrated skin condition alert! what better way it to save it with Cosrx's PHA Cream Speacial Set? 
I have heard so much on Cosrx for being the holy grail brand for pores and acne prone skins, where they focus more on the ingredients and the products with the minimal attention to their packaging. To be fair, i think their packaging is minimalist and lovely and the cute marketing doctor uncle is enough to leave a lasting impression for the brand. 


I first started to know and is probably convinced by the brand from my dear friend of mine, chubs. Never heard of the brand before because being in East Malaysia, we tend to get a limited exposure on the available physical stores that sells them, unless we look them online or stumble upon skincare bloggers and reviews. So, she shared me the secret to her holy grail because i've known her for a lot of years now, and she has sensitive skin with a serious case of breakouts and acne. Until the day I got reunited with her in Singapore - yeap. flawless skin. and i was utterly curious! 

the range mixture she was using wasn't exactly for acne skin too. it was a general all-skin type products! so that explains why my current skincare routine has a whole majority of it are of Cosrx brand. yay!  

To make it short, I saw the PHA Cream Special Set that comes with both the PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream and the Low PH PHA Barrier Mist at a very affordable price online and decided to give it a try because I am in fact looking for moisturizer to cure my forever dehydrated skin. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream thus far using it for almost a month, has really shown some significant smoothness to my skin and I somewhat believes it helps minimize my pigmentation to be worsen, because every time i go for facial - my beauticians will tell me that i have super dry skins and the only was to solve my freckles and pigmentation problem is to fix my hydration.


THE TEXTURE Light cream/gel type and feels like pudding and spreads really nicely on the face easily. a little amount is enough to cover the entire face. a few daps is enough. 

THE SMELL Little to no smell at all. was not use to it in the beginning because i like my products with a nice floral or fruity scent. this was probably watery cream smell with a hint of coconut-ish that i believe will be suitable for sensitive skin. 

THE AFTER-FEEL It leaves a smooth finish but also has a sticky feel to it, although its not as badly on the stickiness until you can't sleep on pillows and such. It has a light feel of stickiness that actually dries off in the morning, which means given extended time - the sticky feel will ware off somehow as it gets absorbs into your face. 


REPURCHASE? Yes, but will be open for options because the results was really really good to my face. but I didn't really like the sticky after-feel to it. but this will be a go-back-to product even after I have found my next best option. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Low PH PHA Barrier Mist comes in a superr nice thin bottle and the mist is also light and you'd definitely use it for daily sprays just to keep your face fresh and retain the moisture. I try to use it during morning and mid-day with just a few sprays, but best feeling is when you have a bare make-up free face. The product alone does cost quite a lot and having it in the bundle set was a really good deal because. honestly, I never really use mist - because it feels like an extra that in fact quite costly to spray water-like ingredients to the face that might be evaporated within the few seconds.  

but nonetheless - I would totally repurchase it a gain if it comes in an affordable set or if it's on reasonable promotional price because this really had a nice bouncy after-feel after the spray. 


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Highly recommends if you're seeking for a hydrating moisturizer to try out, because it does deliver results within a weeks time usage. I personally might be converted to a Cosrx brand cult follower, if you'd like to read more on my Cosrx skincare review, stay tune for my Toner and Essences Review coming soon!

One of the busiest times for flower shop is Valentine’s Day. This is the moment where you can see lots of flowers around presented in stunning arrangements. It is known to be the popular gift on Valentines that you can give to your loved ones. You don’t have to spend time searching for a gift that could make your girl smile because a bouquet of flowers is enough to make them feel loved. However, it is expected that flowers are expensive during this occasion so here are some useful tips that you can consider if you want to save a penny on Valentine’s Day flowers.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today we are having a guest post from Little Flower Hut! Valentine's day is around the corner, and what better way to make that pretty girlfriend of yours happy with flowers. 



How to Save on Flowers on Valentine’s Day?

Not everyone can spend on an expensive bouquet just to impress their girl. Yet, you don’t have to go for a sophisticated arrangement just to let your girl know how much you love her. In fact, even a single rose is enough for you to make her smile on Valentine’s Day. If you are looking forward to saving money on Valentine’s Day, then here are some tips that could help you cut the cost of the flowers.

  • It is expected that florists will surely offer you certain deals to catch your attention. Yet, this might only require you to spend much so it is best that you avoid such offers or specific bundles.
  • It will always be an advantage if you know something about the costs of the flowers before Valentine’s Day so you can have an idea if there is a great increase with the cost.
  • Making an early reservation will always be a good idea if you want to save on flowers. Express flowers delivery will surely be expensive knowing how busy florists are on Valentine’s Day.
  • Always check the prices online so it would be easier for you to find a florist that could offer you the flowers at a cheaper cost.
  • Check if the florist has amazing offers or if they can provide you discounts for various flower arrangements.



You can always make Valentine’s Day memorable by sending flowers to your loved ones. In fact, you can send flowers anytime to express your love because you can easily get a flower delivery online instead of going to a flower shop. This can be an opportunity for you to send your message without saying a word because flowers signify love, appreciation, thankfulness, and sincerity.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know a few friends who would prefer their other half not buy them flowers because they costs so much, but honestly there's no harm once in awhile for this little gestures because it still puts smiles to faces. The happiness really does pays off.

Althea Petal Velvet Powder | MakeUp Review


I heard so much about this little girl that i had to given it a try myself during their launching! and emptied it with a happy heart for my first  purchase! Althea Petal Velvet Powder is the first child from Althea Korea and she comes at a super affordable price of RM16! NOW LOOK AT ME BUYING ALL THE SIBLINGS. They come in 2 Shades, Translucent and Beige, with a Limited Edition Lavender shade. 





I'm not usually the person who would put on powders, because i have dry skin type so finishing powders are usual used if i go full on face makeup mode, which is also quite rare. but boyyy it felt so nice on me when i used it! its light and natural, giving it a nice natural finish as its not too matte as well. it is my current MUST-HAVE daily on my face to cover for the sunblock stickiness on my last step for my daily skincare & makeup. 




it definitely lived up to its description and I'm loving the after feel softness!

so small and so nicely compact!
it lasted a 2months? so when its really affordable I really meant it! 

------------------------------------------------------------------------



Being the proud founding baby for Althea Korea, It contains the Althea flower itself! which is known to be one of the most resilient flowers in the world, rich with anti-oxidants that plays a role in protecting our skin from dehydration while increasing our moisture levels. It also repels UV rays and prevents premature skin ageing. 




THE SMELL 

a floral smell that is sweet but never too overwhelming, probably just like the flower itself.   
Not only Althea flower is the main ingredient featured in this powder, it is also Korea's National Flower! Somehow similar to our National Flower too, the Hibiscus!
the Limited Edition, Lavender smells like lavenderrr! 

THE TEXTURE

the texture is like baby powder - soft and comes with a mini pad to help you put on your face. 
easy to use and you'd feel the difference immediately and go ahead and touch it! you'd know what I mean on your first touch! 

THE COLOUR
Translucent literally pretty transparent afterlook - with a slight lighter shade.
Beige brings out the colour more - but not as obvious as you spread across the face
Lavender is slightly tinted with pinkish, but also pretty transparent afterlook.


REPURCHASE?
YASSSSSSS. ALREADY DID A RESTOCK LAST CHRISTMAS BULK BUYING THEM IN 5


----------------------------------------------------


I hope this will be helpful for some of you guys wondering on the insights of this little babies. RM16 again, it's one of my best purchases for makeup thus far!
