Disclaimer: I received this product for free in exchange for a review. However, the review was written with 100% honesty.

From my understanding, these lipsticks are a Summer edition, hence the different packaging and price range compared to the original one (which has gold specks). I received the lipstick in 03 Orange, but the colour is very much on the pink side.

★ Product description (from packaging) ★ : *their English, not mine.
This product nourish and moisturize your lips, thus keeping your lips soft and moist, with fresh and pleasant fragrance. Besides, it can protect your lips from oxidation factor (such as sun exposure, stress, environment pollution), to avoid dim and dark lips, and let it retain its brightness and shine. And keeps the lips from melting and fading for a whole day.

★ Pros ★ :

  • Surprisingly moisturising: This lipstick is very moisturising, the texture is almost like a lip balm.
  • Lasting pigmentation: The pigmentation actually lasts me an entire day! I have read that it doesn’t last as long for some users but for me, the pink tone is still visible even after eating. I guess this will vary from person to person.
  • Interesting concept: The flower in the middle is a very unique/aesthetic touch, however, I do question if it has any true benefit.


★ Cons ★ :

  • Unpleasant scent/taste: I honestly hated the scent/taste of this lipstick! It is very waxy and has this strange plastic taste. Even if I don’t lick my lips, the scent is so strong that I feel as if I am eating it... It goes away after a while but upon application, it is very off-putting.
  • The plastic packaging: I am not a fan of the packaging, but that is probably because I have been spoilt by Korean brands (bless their packaging).


★ Verdict ★ :

Overall, I find this product to be just all about the Instagram hype. I understand that the uniqueness comes from having the flower in the lipstick but at the end of the day, it is just for aesthetics. The formula of the lipstick is very basic, almost like a tinted lip balm. Even though the pigmentation and moisture level surpassed my expectations, the unpleasant scent has outweighed the other qualities. Maybe, I will have a different opinion of the range if I test out the original lipstick. If you have some money to spare and an Instagram feed to update, this could be the product you need.

I really liked this setting powder! It surely does its job and much more! It helped set my make-up and made my skin less oily throughout the day (although I still needed to blot). I also bought the pact version while in Korea and it has become a staple in my make-up bag. I really liked that this powder did not emphasise on my pores, even when I used the sponge provided! I would surely recommend this product to anyone with oily skin or just anyone who needs an inexpensive setting powder. A little goes a long way so if I ever do run out, I would definitely re-purchase it!

I really enjoyed using this toner! Even though it is not a miracle product it does its job by removing the stubborn residue left from my night acne treatment. I’m really glad this product didn’t break me out because that’s the reason why I stopped using toners. >.< I usually wash my face again before I sleep but on some days when I finish uni really late, I would just use the toner to freshen my skin and then proceed with my usual skin care routine~ I would recommend this to those who have had success with the Wonder Pore range and those who want to try a new toner.

I love this thermal spray! It soothes and calms my skin and provides the moisture I need for when I need a pick-me-up! These come in various sizes so there's even a miniture version that you can put in your bag. I love using this on my cushion puff as it makes the BB cushion/foundation adhere better to my skin. ^_^

I am in love with this OIL-FREE cleansing liquid! It does its job of removing my make-up (sunscreen, BB cream/pact, concealer, loose powder, highlighter, blush and brow crayon) without breaking me out!  I would recommend this to people who have sensitive skin, oily skin or are acne prone~ When I use this I can see my make-up melting away. After using cleansing oils, I am stuck with a sheen but I don’t have to worry about that now.

This is a fantastic, fuss-free makeup remover! It is a balm that can remove all kinds of makeup. It is also great for sensitive skin and doesn't leave a sheen after washing it off. I didn't experience any break outs when I used this product. It also comes with a spatula so you can scoop out the product! This would be convenient to bring if you're are travelling because you won't have to worry about possible leakages or spills.

I really like this cleansing foam! I use it after my make-up remover and it doesn’t dry out my skin at all~ This cleanser would be great for those with oily skin or those who wear a lot of make-up on a regular basis. The scent is amazing and I can’t get enough of it! I don’t think it helps in treating my acne but that’s not why I bought the cleanser for in the first place so I am satisfied with its performance. I have used 3 tubes of this cleanser and I also really like the bubble foam version in a can!

This is a typical foaming cleanser and didn’t do anything much for my skin. After washing it off there was a sheen on my face (which I don't really like). However, I really enjoy mixing this cleanser with wet green tea leaves (cut open a green tea bag after I make my tea) to make an exfoliator!

I absolutely love this cleanser! I received a sample size when I purchased the SKII Treatment Essence. It is super gentle and lathers quite well. It made my skin soft and supple and was not drying. Since it is so gentle, it doesn't irritate the skin. I think this cleanser compliments other SKII products really well! I will definitely consider buying the full sized version when I finish my current cleansers.

I really liked the cooling sensation and it provided a deep clean! This was really good during Summer after coming home and being able to wash all my makeup off (I still used a makeup remove beforehand). Due to its cooling sensation, this might not be suitable for those with sensitive skin as it may cause irritation. This is great for people with oily skin!
