The Soroci repair skin softer is an incredible hydrator. All Soroci products feature rice bran oil, which is an antioxidant as well as being moisturizing. The skin softener also contains propolis, licorice root extract, and algae extract, and sodium hyaluronate, which is an amazing hydrator. 
There is a very faint fragrance to this, but it fades quickly. The skin softener is just slightly viscous, but not too much. It also absorbs quickly and leaves my skin smooth and soft. I have begun mixing a pump of each, partly because they go well together and partly so I don't go through the bottles as quickly.
Now these two products HYDRATE. For such incredibly light products they really do their job. My hydrated glow has become more noticeable in the time I was using this. My skin is softer and smoother, and clearly loves this product.
My one and only complaint is a small one. The lettering on the bottles rubs off very quickly. The aesthetic of the simple bottles is still there, but it would be nice if the lettering wasn't disappearing.
I would recommend this for any skin type, I think anyone could benefit from this light, layer-able product. I also think it would work well for sensitive skin as it's incredibly gentle. 

I’ve been using this for a month or so (I really need to keep better track of my testing schedules) and have mixed feelings about it. On the surface this is a thick cream that should be ideal for dry skin. In reality it’s just not quit enough for me, at least for right now.
The notable ingredients in this are a variety of polypeptides, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, astaxanthin, and collagen. The ingredients list really is a thing of beauty. The cream is thick without being heavy with a light herbal scent. This has a nice slip so it spreads easily, a pea sized amount is all you need for the face and neck . This absorbs rather quickly for a cream, leaving a silky finish.
All of those positive attributes, and yet my skin is dry when I wake up in the morning. I eventually began adding oil to the cream and it still just isn’t enough. Every time I apply it it doesn’t feel as moisturizing as I would like.

This serum contains Sahara cactus oil, acai berry, and quinoa. A pretty nice combination of anti-oxidant rich ingredients for your skin. This essence has a pleasant fragrance that's a bit hard to pinpoint. It's a bit fresh, a bit sweet, a bit watery. Basically what I would imagine a cactus would smell like. The essence itself is a wonderful texture. It's almost like a fluffy gel. It's incredibly light and sinks in right away, leaving a very soft finish. The essence comes in a frosted glass jar with a glass dropper to dispense the product. My one complaint would be that the dropper doesn't reach all the way to the bottom and I can already tell it's going to be hard to get the last of this out.  This is one of my favorite products, and one I've repurchased several times.  

I've had the chance to use the Klairs midnight blue calming cream and my very first reaction to opening this was OH MY GOD IT'S SO PRETTY!  The color is a very soothing blue that turns clear as it absorbs. The texture of this initially feels thicker but once massaged in it melts down to a much thinner consistency. There isn't much of a scent to it, so this could be a good choice for those who avoid fragrances. This cream can be used all over, or just as a spot treatment. 

Some of the star ingredients of this are guaiazulene, an extract from chamomile to soothe and calm, and what gives this that beautiful blue color. This also contains centella asiatica, which can help regenerate skin. The cream has a cooling feeling once applied, but without that feel that a menthol-based product can give. It's a very gentle sensation and is very pleasant.

 

Unfortunately as I haven't used this for very long I don't have much of an opinion on its long-term performance. I haven't noticed any drastic skin smoothing or a decrease in the light redness I tend to have on my cheeks. But it's been less then two weeks, so I need more time. I will say I look forward to having this cream for any sunburns I may get, I think it will feel amazing to soothe any irritated skin with this.  I'll be back at another time with a real review of this, but I am going to save this cream until we're really into summer here

Guys. I’ve found it. I’ve found the face cream that is super ultra rich without being heavy and greasy feeling. One that absorbs and keeps my skin soft and moisturized through the night. One that has almost no fragrance, is gentle, and is pleasant to use.

The Atopalm Extreme Cream is designed for those of us who have some seriously dry skin. This hypoallergenic formula contains ceramides to help repair and rebuild the skin barrier. I am a huge fan of ceramides as they basically saved my face from falling off back in the early days of my Curology use, so I’ll greedily snatch up any product that includes it in their formulas.

So why am I so impressed with this particular cream over the vast world of face creams available out there? Well, I’ve talked about this before, but my skin is unnaturally dry. Without the addition of tretinoin in my weekly routines I have very oily acne prone skin. So while my skin is super dry and dehydrated now, it also gets confused and freaks out when I add too many oils or a product that is too occlusive. So I need rich and moisturizing without being heavy and suffocating. My pores will make me suffer if I’m not careful. The Extreme Cream gives me all the positives with none of the negatives.

This has virtually no scent outside of a clean lotion fragrance, and is incredibly gentle. I haven’t experienced even a moment of irritation from using this, and it is in fact a wonderful cream to use post-microneedling. 

I do think it would be too heavy for anyone with oily and maybe even combo skin, but Atopalm also offers the intense moisture cream. This is similar in formula but as you can see (top swatch in final photo) a lighter and runnier texture. 

Ive been using this for a solid month and will be using it to its last, and then repurchasing! 

This is a heavier essence with an oil mixed it. A quick shake of the bottle mixes the oil and essence together, and about half a dropper covers my whole face. I use this after all of my essences and sheet masks, and before my heavier serums. This does sit a bit sticky on my skin, but since I'm using it near the end of my evening routine and covering it with a sleeping pack it's fine. By the time I wake up, my skin is plump, glowing, and healthy looking. Plus the fragrance of this is an amazing honey scent. 

This is a gel cleanser that foams a bit, but not as much as some cleansers. This has a ph of 5.5 for those concerned about ph. It's quite gentle and isn't stripping, even on dry skin. It gives a thorough clean with no tight feeling after. The bottle lasts quite awhile as you don't need too much. 

This is one of my favorite serums. It's a richer serum that isn't heavy at all, it sink quickly into the skin. It has a wonderfully bright, fresh scent to it that I look forward to each day. It dries down to a very soft and smooth finish. It really adds an extra layer of hydration as well as to help seal in my previous product layers. The bottle lasted me well over 6 months with daily use. This is a definite repurchase for me 

I've been on a slightly obsessive hunt for a good liptont for years. For whatever reason color doesn't hold well on my lips, even with most tints. Lipsticks dry my skin out, and glosses feel sticky and transfer too much. The Face Shop tiny actually lasts longer on me then the Beerisom lip tattoos I'm able to easily do a full or a gradient lip with this. The first time I used it I just covered my lips and it was way too thick.  But if I dab it on lightly hand then blend with my finger it looks PERFECT and will last for hours. And when it does fade it doesn't look patchy or weird. I only have one color now but I plan on buying every color I can. 

This cushion was a bit of a disappointment for me. I spent several months trying to like it, but it kept falling short of my expectations. It goes on well but quickly begins to settle into pores and lines. After a few hours of wear it looks heavy and unnatural. Even on my dry skin it feels greasy by the end of the day. I won't even be finishing the cushion I have open, let alone the refill. 

The rice enzyme powder is a fine powder cleanser that foams up when added with a bit of water. It is a bit exfoliating, but is very gentle. This did give my skin a nice glow, but my skin was very tight and uncomfortable after using. The ph of this cleanser is rather high, at an 8 or 9. It may work well for someone with oily skin, but for me it was far too stripping. 

This lotion is a light gel cream that sinks in very quickly and doesn't leave a sticky feeling. The smell is AMAZING. I look forward to using this simply because of the lucious hanbang scent. This lotion is great for more humid climates and warmer months as it's so light. I am switching to a different lotion for the winter though, this isn't moisturizing enough for the drier months. 

This is one of my favorite products. It's both a heavy essence and a light oil. It goes on silky and sinks in to leave your skin soft and bright. It has a lucious honey scent that makes an already luxurious product better. I use this after all of my lighter essences and serums, but before my occlusive and sleeping pack. A few good shakes are needed to mix the products together.  It gives me a wonderful glow and is fantastic for treating my dry skin. This will always be a part of my nightly routine. 

This pore pack is a light grey clay that spreads very easily. I use a face mask brush to sweep this all over my face into an even layer. It has an almost immediate cooling effect that can be a little intense initially but calms down after a few minutes. After about 10 minutes I'll wash it off in the shower. My skin always feels very clean and smooth after this, and my pores do look smaller! 

I love these blush cushions! The color isn't very pigmented, but it layers really well to build to the color you want. After blending there is a lovely watercolor effect on your cheeks. The adorable Rilakkuma design is just an added bonus to an already great cushion. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because it does dry out faster then I like.
