I'd give this 3.5/5. As with most Tony Moly products, the packaging is adorable! Make great little gifts or stocking stuffers too, and are really inexpensive. However, the balm itself is just okay. I got the 06 Juicy Peach which gives a hint of color but I find it not too hydrating, and accentuates my dead skin cells on the lips. I'd recommend to use it after a lip scrub or on lips that aren't too chapped.

I'd give this eyeliner 3.5/5 stars. I love the pretty pink packaging! It also has a very fine and precise tip. However, I found that it is not very long lasting and for me personally, it smudges/fades overtime. I still use it but only when I go out for a few hours, or else I need to reapply.

This popular item has been around for so long but I just recently bought it. It's a finishing powder for sebum control, and comes in 2 shades: 01 (Clear Skin) and 02 (Clear Beige). I have a medium skintone so got the 02, and it gives a light coverage, helping reduce redness and brighten the skin. I found that on bare skin, it can be a bit cakey for me since my cheeks can be a bit dry, so a moisturizer/ proper skincare is definitely needed (YMMV).
.
🌸😸As a finishing powder, it helped mattify, soften, and brighten my complexion. I can't speak much of sebum control, as I haven't worn it for too long but my skin didn't become oily for the few hours that I wore it over my BB cushion.
.
🌸😸I quite like it so far! This can be bought for around $7 online, and given the super adorable packaging and decent coverage, I'm glad I bought it 💕 Oh and it also has a lovely floral smell!

This mask was good but nothing too exciting! It is meant for moisturizing and soothing. It's super thin and translucent on skin and felt comfortable. Was dripping in watery essence and has a generic, fresh scent. Fit and adherence were both good!
.
⭐4/5 ★: skin was left moisturized with no stickiness, and soothed overall! Good, everyday-type mask.

🌿This Taiwanese mask contains niacinamide, squalene, sodium hyaluronate, licorice root extract, pearl barley, witch hazel, and other botanical extracts to help whiten and brighten skin.
.
🌿Scent: can't identify the scent other than a generic, fresh scent.
.
🌿Fit and adhesion: both good; besides the nose area not adhering too well, this mask was thin and comfortable to use, and stayed put for about 20 minutes. The essence was watery and clear.
.
🌿Results: initially, my skin was definitely brighter! It felt nicely hydrated too, but it eventually dried down to a tacky finish that I haven't experienced before. It wasn't uncomfortable, however, but I'd recommend this for night use.
.
⭐3.5/5 ★: wish it didn't dry down tacky but other than that, it's a good mask!

Many people love this moisturizer and it's one of the first Korean skincare items I bought, it is also super cheap! However, I am not a fan of the synthetic type plastic smell and I think this product breaks me out. Although I do love snail mucin in skincare so might give it another try, but so far I don't see myself reaching for it often at all.

These are a cult favorite for a reaon! They work really well to absorb the gunk overnight when the pimple has already come to a head and formed a whitehead. They are hydrocolloid round patches placed on the pimple that also prevents us from touching the area and causing further inflammation. Stick amazingly well and can also be used under make up! 😊

I'm still testing this but so far it's been amazing! Before using this one, I used another lip mask that felt stickier and thicker and sat on top of my lips, wearing off the next day and not having much longterm effects. However, I've been using the Laneige one for about 2 weeks now and I notice that it feels as though part of the balm gets absorbed and actually nourishes and hydrates my lips. Of course, it also wears off in the morning and especially after a long night sleep but I can feel it helping my lips become less cracked overtime. Plus, it smells so good, and love the little silicone spatula!

This is a thick and rich hand cream that smells great and moisturizes my hands really well! Perfect for winter. My complaint would be its price: I remember buying my full size one for about 30 dollars which is super high for a hand cream. Was it worth it? Probably, but I don't think I will repurchase as there are alternative hand creams out there for a fraction of the cost :)

🌸The Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Pore Minimizing & Brightening Mask (what a mouthful lol) has its claims in the name.
.
🌸It features Jobs Tears, a plant extract that helps brighten, moisturize, and soothe skin while providing antioxidants. It also has "Yeast Complex B" for sebum control, and pore-minimizing Evermat. Additionally, all Naruko masks from this line have Phytoferulin, a patented complex with 11 different plant extracts, with no parabens. The ingredients list sure is impressive! 👏
.
🌸SCENT: light fermented-like scent which was pleasant.
.
🌸FIT/ ADHERENCE: fit was great but some parts of the mask did not adhere too well, like the chin area and around my nose, but no biggie.
.
🌸RESULTS: it left a bit of a sticky finish but not uncomfortable. Redness was immediately reduced and pimples less inflamed! 🙌 Although I didn't notice too much brightening.
.
⭐4/5 ⭐: I'd say this is a great soothing/ healing mask! I was impressed by how well it worked for redness and irritation, but other masks have worked better for me in terms of brightening. Naruko is still one of my favorite mask brands and would recommend!

I think this mask is special because of the litte quote at the side! "I love myself, I am more than beautiful." We all need a little reminder sometimes ☺️ You're beautiful! Also remember that no matter how some people might make you feel, you are always good enough. Don't let others tell you where your limits are!
.
💖 So anyway, this mask is a makeup priming mask with AHA complex: citric, glycolic, lactic, malic, and tartaric acids to help get rid of dead skin cells. It also contains sodium hyaluronate (hydrating) and many fruit extracts including grape, lemon, and apple extracts 🍇🍋🍎
.
💖 SCENT: Since it's fragrance free (also 8 free), it had a very light natural smell.
.
💖 FIT/ ADHERENCE: As you can tell the fit of these @pack_agekorea message masks is better compared to their Everyday Bouncy mask: the eye, nose, and mouth holes weren't as big, no eye flaps, and it fit nicely overall.
Adherence was also great, and I was able to wear for about 30 minutes although it was still damp.
.
💖 RESULTS: Didn't test this under makeup but it left my skin nicely hydrated and a little sticky, which I think could serve as a good primer. Skin was also soothed and more even-toned!
.
⭐4/5 ⭐: I enjoyed using this mask! In fact all 3 of this message mask series are pretty nice I think, my favorite is the soothing centella one ☺️ Love the originality of the inspirational quotes at the side, and how they are 8 free!🙌. Nice affordable masks to try.

I love these eye masks! The first time I tried it, I thought it was a little too hot on my eyes but the second time it was much more comfortable. It comes in different scents and so far I tried the lavender sage (not a fan) and rose (loved it). It really helps soothe tired eyes and are amazing for the winter! It also helps you sleep better I feel. They are really handy to soothe the eyes after long, tiring working hours or during a long plane flight. I only wish the warmth lasted a bit longer.

This was actually my first #innisfree mask! I've heard mixed reviews so I didn't know what to expect. This mask claims to help with the appearance of skin problems with tea tree oil. Other ingredients include grapefruit, aloe, and green tea leaf extracts.
.
🌿 It had a tea tree scent. The fit was good but the adherence was okay. Some parts didn't adhere too well although that's a minor complaint. The masking session lasted for about 15 minutes. Watery clear essence.
.
🌿Thankfully I'm not having bad breakouts right now, but a few tiny whiteheads that this mask did not have too much effect on. It also left a tacky finish on my combo/ oily skin, so I'd recommend this to be used at night.
.
⭐3/5 ⭐: this mask was just okay for me. Didn't notice too much effects other than moisture.

🍯 This mask is formulated with honey, propolis, galactomyces ferment filtrate, and sodium hyaluronate to moisturize and promote glowy and bouncy skin ✨
.
🍯 SCENT: not much scent detected.
.
🍯 FIT/ ADHERENCE: As expected, fit wasn't good: every one of the mask holes was waayy too big 😂 I used the eye flaps to cover part of the area under my eyes, because the eyehole cutouts were coming down to my nose level, lol. Area for nose and mouth were too huge too.
However, adherence was great! The material was thin and soaked in viscous, clear essence that hugged my skin for about 25 minutes.
.
🍯RESULTS: honey masks are usually super moisturizing for my combo oily skin and this one was no different: it left my skin really moisturized and a little glowy, with some stickiness.
.
⭐4/5 ⭐: fit aside, I feel this is a good moisturizing mask that could be great for dry skin types!

I think character masks are usually gimmicky because in general, their adherence aren't that great and are mainly for fun, so I wasn't expecting much of this #snp animal otter aqua mask... Luckily it turned out to be a pretty decent one!
.
ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ This mask is meant for moisture retention of dry skin. Ingredients include coconut water 😮🌴, alcohol (4th ingredient 😕), sodium hyaluronate, pomegranate extract, and other flower extracts.
.
ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ SCENT: perfumey, a tad strong but not too bad
.
ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ FIT/ ADHERENCE: as expected of most character masks, the material is stiff, also the eye holes were a bit too small for me, but it still adhered okay for about 20 minutes.
.
ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ RESULTS: it definitely wasn't overly moisturizing, which is good for me having combo oily skin, but I think not enough for dry skin as the mask claims. Lots of essence was left in the pouch though, and after slapping some on, it left a slight stickiness that faded after a few minutes.
.
⭐3.5/5 ⭐: this mask was okay! Fun to use and gives decent amount of moisture 😊

This #mediheal Line Friends I.P.I. Lightmax Ampoule Mask is designed to whiten and brighten dull skin, with vitamin C, arbutin, and mulberry extract. Other ingredients are hyaluronic acid, vit E, collagen, and other botanical extracts.
.
🎀 SCENT: pleasant, fresh scent.
.
🎀 FIT/ ADHERENCE: as expected of Mediheal masks, fit and adherence were great! I also love the little Cony character from Line Friends at the side 🐰💕 The mask had a clear, viscous essence that adhered well for about 25 minutes.
.
🎀 RESULTS: nicely hydrated skin with not much stickiness! Skin was slightly brighter too, and more even toned 🙌
.
⭐4/5 ⭐: I think this is a pretty good, everyday type mask that would show more noticeable brightening/whitening effects if used long term ☺️

I've been enjoying this a lot lately! This toner for acne-prone skin has 60% of propolis which is an amazing anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient to soothe, repair and hydrate skin. AHAs and BHAs also help with sebum production and in clearing skin of impurities and breakouts. I noticed that using it 3-5 times a week helps keep my acne breakouts at bay, however, using it everyday (especially with vitamin C products) leads to over-exfoliation which causes more acne for me personally. I'm also taking 1 heart off for its high alcohol content. You can smell the alcohol and also feel the pain if you have cuts in your hands/face! But I love how it hydrates my skin and helps keep it clear when used sparingly. Overall, I'd recommend it if your skin isn't too sensitive to alcohol and/or acids!

I love these little pads! Love their fresh scent, and they work so well! Sometimes when I have several pimples on my cheek, I use one as a point pad and leave it on my face for a few minutes. It immediately soothes the area and lessens inflammation. However, I found that I can't personally use these everyday as it has BHA and can lead to over-exfoliation (maybe my skin is more sensitive than I thought 😕) but using it occasionally, I love it! I like how practical they are; I can just wipe and go. Already bought a back-up.

I love the Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream! I love doubling it as a morning moisturizer (just right after cleanser and toner and maaaybe a thin essence) since it's pretty moisturizing on my combination (sometimes oily, but mostly combo) skin, without being heavy or becoming oily by itself 🙌 It also helps soothe the skin with aloe vera and leaves no white cast ☺️ Plus it smells great to me! I'd recommend it for people searching for a sunscreen that can also double as a moisturizer. Maybe ideal for combination to dry skinned folks!

The #skinfood Rice Wash-Off mask contains rice bran water to brighten, soften, and moisturize skin. You apply it onto dry skin and massage it for 10-15 minutes and wash off.
.
🍚 It has a consistency that reminds me of porridge! 😂 Smells a little perfumey but nice and fresh, almost exactly like the egg pore wash off mask by the same brand. It was also cooling on skin.
.
🍚 I like the gentle exfoliation that it gives, and after washing it off, my skin was super soft, smooth, and a little more brightened ☺️ No signs of dryness!
.
So I think this is a good, gently exfoliating wash-off mask that's definitely worth a try if you want brightening and softening of skin ✨ It's super affordable too! Retails for $10 but it's usually on sale.
