Laneige Multi-Cleanser Review | Korean Skincare

Hi Lovelies! I know many of you guys request for me to do more skincare reviews and guess what? they will be many skincare reviews on the blog as I am in the process of finding my holy grail skincare routine so I have been trying many products to find the ones that work best for my skin. 

 multi-action, foaming cleanser for fresher-looking skin. Exfoliating papaya sweeps away dead surface skin; micro-cellular beads gently remove impurities, melting away sunscreen and makeup. Instantly brightens.

*Remember we all have different skin what works for me might not work for you and vice versa.

Let me start by giving you a little background on my skin. My skin is extremely sensitive and very dry (I think that enough info). I got a sample size of Laneige multi-cleanser at GenBeauty LA back in January. I really wanted to give this product a try because I heard so many good stuff about Korean skincare so I was excited when I came across this brand. 

Price: $22.49

Water, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Myristic Acid, PEG-32, Potassium Hydroxide, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Laureth-1, Phosphate, Cellulose, Lauric Acid, Lauryl Phosphate, Papain, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract Lactobacillus/Water Hyacinth Ferment Mannitol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Lauramide DEA, PEG-100, Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Disodium EDTA, Polymethyl Methacrylate, PEG-75, Fragrance

This cleanser claims to be a 4 in 1 multi-action cleanser that removes makeup, rinses away sunscreen, deep cleanse and exfoliates. So does it really live up to its claim?

Well after trying this product for a little over two weeks I can tell you that some of the claims are true as far as cleaning and exfoliating the face. I honestly have no complains this product did an amazing job. Even though this cleanser claims to be for all skin type I just can't agree I personally don't think its suitable for people with dry skin if you asked me I will say is more for normal to oily skin. the reason why I said this is because after using this cleanser despite my skin feeling nice and clean it leaves my skin extremely dry/tight afterwards.

Overall, I will recommend this cleanser to everyone with normal to oily skin. 

Where to buy: Target 

  • effectively removes makeup
  • leaves skin feeling clean 
  • thick foam 
  • gentle exfoliate
  • little goes a long way
  • 4 in 1 cleanser
  • can be very drying for dry skin 
  • price is a little high for drugstore face wash (but worth it since a little goes long way)

Say Goodbye to Dry Skin | Skinfix Daily Lotion Review

Hi Beauties! I couldn't wait any longer to share this holy grail lotion with you all.

I have been dealing with dry/itchy skin for quite sometime now and winter makes it even worse. I recently went to the dermatologist (thats how bad it was) and he recommended the ceraVe and other prescribed medications to treat my skin. I had lots of scaly dry patches all over my arms not only they look ugly but they itch like crazy. I followed my doctor recommendations and I got no results my skin was still dry, crack and itchy at that point I was feeling hopeless.

I came I across this brand at GenBeauty in LA, I am so glad I stopped at their booth because this lotion changed my skin around for the better. This lotion works miracles after trying so many different brands without any luck I can finally said I found the solution for my dry skin. I have been using this lotion for about two weeks now and my dry/itchy skin feels so smooth and hydrated (I wish I had before pic to show you) this lotion is worth every penny.

If you are suffering from dry skin like me I highly recommend you try this lotion you can find them at Ulta and Target. The company also has a website in case you want to learn more about the brand and their products.
