K-beauty: Neogen, Belif, Caolion, Laneige, Dr Jart+, Too Cool For School

Can you believe, it's been 5 years since I started to create Kherblog. This time I thought it would be cool, to sum up, all these years of work and show you some of the most popular products, but also tell you how blogging has changed my life. 

How it all started? 

In March 2016, I started Kherblog. The reason was easy - I was bored and scared that I might forget the English language, even if now I work with languages, I have to admit, my university doesn't help, I feel like I'm going backwards with my language skills since English at online university is all about watching youtube videos. I swear, I'm pretty sure that soon our lecturer will send us videos to "baby shark" and then make an entire exam out of it. I was supposed to create a lifestyle blog, but it turned out to be a beauty blog, and my speciality is Asian Beauty, especially Korean. I'm happy that thanks to blogging I was able to start learning new languages - apparently, in my job it's good to know Chinese or Korean, Russian and one Latin language like Spanish or French because when you work with 13-15 languages daily, you never know what might happen. When I started to blog, everyone thought that I'll graduate with a master degree in pharmacy, and here I am - certified esthetician and dietitian, currently studying cosmetology at medical university while working as a social media expert for haircare brands who tries to run her own creative studio. Blogging has opened lots of doors in front of me, even if the beginning wasn't easy. The majority of people don't know what I do, because I know their opinion on bloggers, influencers and all media. They know what do I do for a living, and it's already making me in this position of having difficulties in for example dating - it's easier to say "I'm an accountant" than tell someone "social media" or "marketing". I might be single and unsuccessful in the eyes of my local friends, but I met so many amazing people around the world that I don't even worry about it anyway. 

What do I plan to do next? 

When I started Kherblog, I was writing this blog in Polish & English, after many messages - the translations are back, but on a different website called Projekt Zdrowa Cera. I want to engage my friends from med school to write with me since many of them had to stop even thinking about working as estheticians due to COVID-19, not many of them had a chance to continue their education as estheticians and in our job any longer break can make a huge difference. When you look at the beauty companies, skincare products are popping out almost every day, it's hard to keep on track, so I thought that with a Polish blog, I might be able to help them keep on track because we planned that once we graduate, we will work together. It's an honour for me to hear from my friends that they want to work with me, and even learn from me, because my interpersonal skills might be poor, but I'm way better with skincare treatments and ingredients. When I describe ingredients to you, I actually learn for my current, and future job. 

When I was younger, I told myself that I want to do something creative. Sadly, my job doesn't help me being 100% creative, but I'm glad that blogging gave me this space, now I want to continue learning about video making. Let me change smoothly the topic, I want to show you products that are your (& mine) all-time favourites on Kherblog! 

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Hair Scrub

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Hair Scrub 

Sodium Chloride, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Aqua/Water/Eau, Butylene Glycol, Octyldodecanol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum/Fragrance, Caprylyl Glycol, Menthol, Mel/Honey/Miel, Linalool, Limonene, Citric Acid, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 42090/Blue 1 

My hair problem is huge - oily scalp is not getting anywhere, but thanks to The Body Shop scrub, I was able to start using Kerasys shampoo - the same which I couldn't use for a while, but my dad likes it a lot. Turns out that Kerasys helps with my hair too, and I might do another review of this shampoo, but when you got oily hair - try adding scrub to your shampoo, I also use purple shampoo because I got cold hair tone and I want to keep it cold. A small amount can fully change your routine. 

AHC x Marymond The Pure Real Eye Cream

AHC Eye Cream For Face 

Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Cyclohexasiloxane, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Salvia Miltiorrhiza Root Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Algae Extract, Eclipta Prostrata Leaf, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Acmella Oleracea Extract, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Extract, Juniperus Communis Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Rhododendron Ferrugineum Extract, Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract, Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract, Phaseolus Lunatus (Green Bean) Seed Extract, Nymphaea Alba Flower Extract, Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract, Salicornia Herbacea Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Fruit Extract, Pancratium Maritimum Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Borago Officinalis Seed Oil, rgania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Water, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Water, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Phytosteryl/Behenyl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, Behenyl Alcohol, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Glyceryl Stearate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Beta-Glucan, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Arginine, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Cholesterol, Oleanolic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Ceramide, Dextrin, Trisodium EDTA, Panthenol, Raffinose, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Dipropylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Folic Acid, Sodium Palmitoyl Proline, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sucrose, Acrylates Copolymer, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Rutin, Hydrolyzed Lupine Protein, Tromethamine, Maltodextrin, Caprylyl Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Acetyl Dipeptide-1 Cetyl Ester, VP/Polycarbamyl Polyglycol Ester, Saccharide Hydrolysate, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Pentylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Hydrolyzed Sesame Protein PG-Propyl Methylsilanediol, Phytosphingosine, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Ascorbic Acid Polypeptide, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Nonapeptide-1, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-14, Hexapeptide-9 

Once I tried AHC, I can't stop using it. Although AHC x Marymond The Pure Real Eye Cream for face is the most popular from all AHC reviews I wrote, you enjoy other versions too! AHC is a number one brand if it comes to Kbeauty eye creams, and I agree with that. Both me and my mom are using this brand. 

Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask

Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask 

Water, Propanediol, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Squalane, Hydrogenated Poly(C6-14 Olefin), Glycerin, Panthenol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Polyglyceryl-10 Stearate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Asiaticoside, Madecassic Acid, Sorbitan Isostearate, Asiatic Acid, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Aureobasidium Pullulans Ferment, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) 

Laneige did a great job with new releases in 2019 and 2020, Cica Sleeping Mask was one of them - I still have the Cream series to review, lately the Cream series came out in Europe, so I'm still waiting to see Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask in Europe. This mask still saves my skin and I plan to buy it once again because every time my skin is irritated or dehydrated - Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask help my skin a lot. Water Sleeping Mask was one of my favourite sleeping masks, but once Cica came back - I didn't feel an urge to buy Water Sleeping Mask which you can get at Sephora in Europe. 


Foreo Luna Fofo Brush

Foreo Luna Fofo Brush 

I'm in love-hate relationship with Foreo brush. I know that people like it, but Fofo version is a bit disappointing. I plan to get Foreo Ufo and Foreo Bear, but so far I got other things to buy, one of the main problems I got with Foreo are prices. 

Neogen Real Ferment Micro Essence

Neogen Real Ferment Micro Essence 

Bifida Ferment Lysate, Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Betula Alba Juice, Rice Ferment Filtrate (Sake), Aspergillus Ferment, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Water, Betaine, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Trehalose, Lactobacillus, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Trideceth-10, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Tropolone, Allantoin, Butylene Glycol, Coptis Japonica Extract, Arginine, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Calcium, Carbonate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Niacinamide, Dextrin, Glycine, Serine, Glutamic Acid, Aspartic Acid, Leucine, Alanine, Lysine, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine, Proline, Threonine, Valine, Isoleucine, Phenoxyethanol, Histidine, Methionine, Cysteine 

Neogen is still one of my favourite brands (when I wrote this review I almost bought another Neogen serum, which is no longer sold, but I had to stop myself - in March and April you will understand why because I'm coming with many reviews of Korean and Greek serum reviews). I guess Micro Essence was sold at first on Soko Glam as an exclusive product, but now you can find it all around the world. It's one of the most interesting essences you can find - with probably better results than the next serum. The design for Neogen's fermented line is pure perfection. 


Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence

Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence 

Artemisia Annua Extract 

Mugwort came from nowhere, just like Missha's mugwort line. This line is more popular than Missha's Red Algae line which popularity got lower due to COVID, but that's just what I think - I have no data to analyze and share with you. Mugwort line is a bit unconventional since it wasn't clear if and the controversy was that it is supposed to be 100% Artemisia Extract Essence. There are amounts of water and other ingredients for sure, but probably according to law, the amount is so small that Missha didn't have to note them. Still, Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence was an interesting experience. 


Neogen Real Vita C Serum & Neogen Real Vita C Powder Lemon

Neogen Real Vita C Serum 

Water, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (22%), 1,2-Hexanediol, Niacinamide, Dipropylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Citric Acid, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Sodium Metabisulfite, Ethylhexylglicerin, Coptis Japonica Extract, Dextrin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Ascorbic Acid (0.1PPM), Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Disodium EDTA 


Neogen Real Vita C Powder Lemon 

Lactose, Ascorbic Acid(17%), Allantoin, Trehalose, Ribose, Betaine, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Water, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract(0.1ppm), 1,2-Hexanediol 

The first duo in this post that won your heart, and helped me with my pigmentation - Neogen Real Vita C series. Lately, Neogen released new Vitamin C based products with Yuzu and you know how much I love Yuzu/Yuja. Sadly, it's not available in Europe yet, but I plan to go for it. You can see in the post, how much this serum helped me. Before COVID I bought one additional bottle and I plan to use it once all my Vitamin C serums are gone - I got a few of them, I can't use Vitamin C right now on my face, but my legs need a bit of help due to my quite common skin condition. 

Krave Beauty Beet The Sun Cream

Krave Beauty Beet The Sun Cream 

Water, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Dibutyl Adipate, Beta Vulgaris (Beet) Root Extract, Alcohol, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Isoamyl p-Methoxycinnamate, Polysilicone-15, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, Methylpropanediol, Isohexadecane, Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, 1,2-Hexanediol, Polysorbate 80, Lithospermum Erythrorhizon Root Extract, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Sorbitan Oleate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Allantoin, Epigallocatechin Gallate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Butylene Glycol, Resveratrol 

I'm still waiting for Krave Beauty in Europe. Liah Yoo does an awesome job - especially if you saw the zoom event at the beginning of the year when Krave Beauty shared information about sustainability and working with indigenous people and BIPOC (I know these two terms are used, and I don't want to make any mistake, because I know how hard this topic is, and for Europeans, it can be hard to understand sometimes, because yes - racism exists here too, but for example in my country problems with lack of acceptance for LGBTQ+ community and women rights are more common). Anyway, Krave Beauty Beet The Sun Sunscreen was such a great sunscreen - the bottle fit in my bag, it can be used on eyelids and the formula works with makeup. I was surprised that someone wrote under such post "it isn't expensive", and let me know something - from a person who lives in a "poorer" country in Europe since Slavs are usually poor and people think that we have bears instead of dogs at home - for us, prices in $ are 3 or 4 times more than for you, I believe that in many countries in Asia, Africa, North and South America - the situation is the same. For many households skincare or even personal hygiene products such as pads are expensive, that's why before writing somewhere "oh that's so cheap AF" think about others - for some people, sunscreen is not a must like for me and you, it's a thing that should be affordable for everyone, but sadly some people can't afford it just like medicines and personal care products. 

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Cream

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Cream 

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Methyl Trimethicone, Dicaprylyl Ether, Artemisia Argyi Leaf Extract, Betaine, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Hydrogenated Poly(C6-14 Olefin), Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Cnidium Officinale Root Water, Angelica Acutiloba Root Extract, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, C14-22 Alcohols, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Arachidyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Palmitic Acid, Behenyl Alcohol, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Arachaidyl Glucoside, Fragrance, Ethylhexylglycerin, Salicornia Herbacea Extract, Morus Alba (White Mulberry) Leaf Extract, Angelica Keiskei Extract, Disodium EDTA, Sorbitan Isostearate, Myristic Acid, Lauric Acid, Tocopherol, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil 

Even if Hanyul Yuja line is my favourite, I believe we all need Hanyul in Europe for one simple reason - the products are so good! Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Cream helped me a lot with the moisture of the skin, and I wish I could use it now - during my Aklief phase since finding a moisturizer that doesn't sensitize your skin and make your acne worse is like a holy grail - no one can spot it for a while. In general, the Artemisia line made by Hanyul is probably my favourite Artemisia line that exists. 

Purito From Green Cleansing Oil

Purito From Green Cleansing Oil 

Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sorbeth-30 Tetraoleate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Caprylate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Vegetable Oil, Tocopherol 

Purito have some worse times after the whole "sunscreen" drama - they had to discontinue sunscreens (I don't remember if they discontinued all sunscreens or only chemical ones) and they prepare new sunscreens with new standards (aka they plan to test them in two different labs to make sure that the products fit the standards). I said that before Purito From Green Cleansing Oil has some flaws, but still, it seems to be attractive to the consumers. Purito surprised me well with the products they positively released in 2019 and 2020. 


COSRX Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream

COSRX Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream 

Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Ceramide NP, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sucrose Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Dipropylene Glycol, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Kernel Oil, BeesWax, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil 

COSRX Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream aka my mom's favourite cream. My mom has Demodex and it's one of maybe 2 or 3 products that work for her skin. During Aklief treatment I used it too, sometimes with positive, sometimes with negative results due to Bergamot Oil, so I wish COSRX would create unscented versions of creams like Purito did, but still, it's one of the moisturizers I always recommend to my friends. 


Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Serum

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Serum 

Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Eryngium Maritimum Callus Culture Filtrate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Niacinamide, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Ilex Aquifolium (Holly) Leaf Extract, Achillea Millefolium Oil, Panthenol, Chondrus Crispus Extract, C12-14 Pareth-12, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract, Streptococcus Thermophilus Ferment, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Madecassoside, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Adenosine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, DNA, Disodium EDTA, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Asiaticoside, Dextrin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Extract, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Calcium Chloride, Centella Asiatica Extract, Magnesium Sulfate 

I guess Dr.Jart+ is loved by many and I understand that because it's one of the brands I like to use. Cicapair series you already know, but the serum turns out to be one of your favourite products right next to colour correcting treatments. 


Nivea Soothing Cleansing Oil Face & Eyes with Natural Grape Seed Oil for Sensitive Skin

Nivea Soothing Cleansing Oil Face & Eyes with Natural Grape Seed Oil for Sensitive Skin 

Paraffinum Liquidum, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isododecane, Ethylhexyl Stearate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil, Tocopherol 

It one of the biggest cleansing surprises ever. Nivea is a brand with a long tradition, but I would never expect Nivea to start selling affordable oil-based cleansers that work better than many other products from the same category. I'm a huge fan of cleansing balms, but for such a low price, I can stop my cleansing balm obsession. I got quite a lot of messages about this cleanser, and it seems that after COVID many people in Europe started using this product due to problems with ordering their favourite cleansing products from abroad. 

Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops with SPF 44 & Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment with SPF 30

Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment with SPF 30 

Water, Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, Isononyl Isononanoate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Beeswax/Cire D'abeille, Glycerin, Diethylhexyl Carbonate, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Niacinamide, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Panthenol, Diglycerin, Iron Oxides, Polyglyceryl-4 Diisostearate/Polyhydroxystearate/Sebacate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isododecane, Ethylene/Methacrylate Copolymer, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Sclerotium Gum, Sodium Benzoate, Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Chromium Oxide Greens, Triethyl Citrate, Potassium Sorbate, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Leaf Extract, Disodium EDTA, BHT, Alcohol, Asiaticoside, Adenosine, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Boron Nitride, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, 1,2- Hexanediol, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Propanediol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Polysorbate 20, Aniba Rosodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil, Sodium Glycerophosphate, Selaginella Lepidophylla Extract, Potassium Magnesium Aspartate, Citric Acid, Calcium Gluconate, Madecassoside, Magnesium Gluconate, Centella Asiatica Meristem Cell Culture, Xanthan Gum, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide 

Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops with SPF 44 

Cyclopentasiloxane, Centella Asiatica Extract, Isononyl Isononanoate, Butylene Glycol, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Water, Sodium Chloride, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Aluminum Hydroxide, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer, Chromium Oxide Greens, Beeswax, Disodium EDTA, Asiaticoside, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Asiatic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Phenoxyethanol, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Lecithin, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Madecassoside, Methyl Trimethicone, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Diphenysiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Dipropylene Glycol, Isododecane, Lauryl PEG-10 Tris (Trimethysiloxy) Silylethyl Dimethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate / Hexastearate / Hexarosinate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Caprylyl Glycol, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Glyceryl Caprylate, Zein, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Adenosine, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Dipotassium Phosphate, Calcium Stearate, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Panthenol, Tocopherol, Anastatica Hierochuntica Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed) Sterols, Leuconostoc / Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Sucrose Laurate, Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Fruit Extract, Lysolecithin, Ceramide NP, Copper Gluconate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Madecassic Acid 

I posted about this duo, and I want to comment at the same time. Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Treatments grew a lot thanks to Tiktok (you can find me there as @betweendots). This product works magic for my friends, including Nat - a person who helps me with commercial photos, my good friend from med school and 1/2 of our creative project called SHVDV. She wears it instead of a foundation. In my case - I have to apply makeup since I'm a bit lighter than the formula plus I got some pigmentation to fight with. It's not a substitute for your sunscreen, but it's a great substitute for foundation. In some countries, the Drop version is not possible to find, but lately, I find cream more useful than the drop version. 


Dr. Ceuracle Propolis Ampoule

Dr. Ceuracle Propolis Ampoule 

Propolis Extract (50%), Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract (10%), Panthenol, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ethyl Ascorbyl Ether, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Bark/Twig Extract (13%), Centella Asiatica Extract (13%), Carbomer, Arginine, Spirodela Polyrrhiza Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine 

3 different versions of the ampoule, 3 different brandings, and each time I feel more disappointed with this cult propolis ampoule. I used to enjoy LJH propolis ampoule, but Dr. Ceuracle version got weaker than the previous two. But so far I didn't find better propolis formulas than this one and By Wishtrend. 


Axis-y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen

Axis-y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen 

Water, Cyclohexasiloxane, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Propanediol, Polyglyceryl-3 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Dibutyl Adipate, Niacinamide, Caprylyl Methicone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Betaine, Magnesium Sulfate, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Inositol, Aluminum Hydroxide, C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Polyglyceryl-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Stearic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Octyldodecanol, Adenosine, Glycerin, Squalane, Allantoin, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Water, Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil, Artemisia Capillaris Extract(0.005%), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Cardiospermum Halicacabum Flower/Leaf/Vine Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil Unsaponifiables, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Tocopherol 

Axis-y is a brand that came from nowhere and challenged many skincare brands. They have a simple idea behind their products - focus on humid climates. The history of the brand starts in December 2019, and I guess this is a brand which I see the most online, even if I don't think that they sell Axis-y at any store besides Axis-y official market, but I might be wrong. I guess why Axis-y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen is so popular among Kherblog readers - the whole problem with K-beauty filters lately and the fact that Axis-y made physical filter with no white cast makes Axis-y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen a strong player in sunscreen games. 

Vichy Liftactive Specialist Glyco-C Ampoules

Vichy Liftactive Specialist Glyco-C Ampoules 

Aqua/​Water, Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat, Propanediol, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Glucoside 

Vichy is a French brand with a long tradition - Vichy exists since 1931. Currently, Vichy started to step up their skincare game a bit, at least that's what I see because well-known brands are not safe when many new brands are coming with AI-based or in general, technology-based products. Mixing Glycolic Acid & Vitamin C might seem to be scary, but Vichy is safe to use at home - just don't use it when you take retinol. I used two boxes and if it wasn't maskne, I would probably buy it once again.

By Wishtrend Polyphenol In Propolis 15% Ampoule

By Wishtrend Polyphenol In Propolis 15% Ampoule 

Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Propolis Extract, Glycerin, Propanediol, Isopentyldiol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ocimum Sanctum Leaf Extract, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Panthenol, Perilla Frutescens Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Lactobacillus Ferment, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Betaine, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Zinc PCA, Pantolactone

One of the most commonly stolen photos from me is related to By Wishtrend Polyphenol In Propolis 15% Ampoule. This Ampoule wasn't my favourite, since Leegeehaam (currently, Dr. Ceuracle) was my favourite, but after reformulation, I can officially say By Wishtrend Polyphenol In Propolis 15% Ampoule has no competitors!

Probably the most stolen photo of mine. So hey, if you plan to steal my content - ask for permission! Yes, there's a thing such as copyrights and I would love it if people can start taking care of them. Anyway, this Pixi toner was the best of all Pixi's toners even if this toner itself has a small issue it's based on Ascorbic Acid, a non-stable version of Vitamin C, after 3 months of opening (even if it was supposed to survive 6 months) it oxidized and I couldn't use it anymore, so I recommend you to buy a smaller version of the toner than full-size one. 

By Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence

By Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence 

Aqua(Water), Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract(10%), Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water(9%), Schisandra Chinensis Fruit Extract(9%), Morus Alba Bark Extract(8.7%), Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract(8.7%), Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, Saccharomyces/Honey Ferment Filtrate, Saccharomyces/Xylinum/Black Tea Ferment, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propolis Extract(1%), Butylene Glycol, Benzyl Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin

I barely ever make videos even if I want - especially now when I spend time at home, and I still live with my family (with no possibility to buy myself a flat because of the shitty contracts young people are offered, being a single person which means lower-income and limited loan offers and don't forget the most important thing - rising prices of estates), so the pressure of even renting an office since I work from home and I appreciate that is huge. I bet people all around the world has a similar situation, and I just feel sorry for all of us. 


Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner

Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner 

Water, Butylene Glycol, Dimethyl Sulfone, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Natto Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium EDTA, Centella Asiatica Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Polyquaternium-51, Chlorphenesin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer, Panthenol, Arginine, Luffa Cylindrica Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract, Beta-Glucan, Althaea Rosea Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Lysine HCL, Proline, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Acetyl Methionine, Theanine, Copper Tripeptide-1 

Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner was, and still is one of my favourite toners, because it has no scent, and the texture is thick. I swear you have to try it - especially when your skin is sensitive. It smells a bit like plastic or licorice, but once you start using it - you can get used to it. I guess this scent is typical for unscented products based on fermented ingredients. 

RE:P Bio Fresh Mask With Real Calming Herbs

RE:P Bio Fresh Mask With Real Calming Herbs 

Water, Kaoline, Butylene Glycol, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Stearic Acid, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Behenyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, 1,2-Hexadiol, Artemisia Annua Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract, Helichrysum Arenarium Extract, Azadirachta Indica Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Melissa Officinalis Flower/Leaf/Stem Water, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Water, Calendula Officinalis Flower Water, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Triticum Spelta Seed Water, Calendula Officinalis Flower, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Powder, Disodium EDTA, Xanthan Gum, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Safflower Yellow, Gardenia Red, Fragrance 

Neogen's sister brand RE:P was probably the first K-beauty Vegan-friendly brand I ever met. RE:P Bio Fresh Mask With Real Calming Herbs is and always will be my favourite mask, because it has parts of Calendula inside and it's a clay mask. I couldn't find anything better so far, and I'm pretty sure it will be hard to beat this mask - maybe only other RE:P products can do that. 


Klairs Fundamental Water Oil Drop

Klairs Fundamental Water Oil Drop 

Aqua(Water), Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Bifida Ferment Extract, Betaine, Dipropylene Glycol, Sorbitol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Aspergillus/Rice Ferment Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, Arginine, Carbomer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Ceramide NP, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Copper Tripeptide-1, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 

Not my favourite product from Klairs - to be honest, due to COVID I can't even catch up with all new releases since in Poland the price for Klairs (as well as Neogen and many other brands are just too high in my opinion, I don't want to know how much would Sulwhasoo or The History Of Whoo cost here), but somehow this product is quite popular on my Pinterest, and I guess that's because I posted a video of the texture. 


Urang Rose Ceramide Cream

Urang Rose Ceramide Cream 

Rosa Damascena Flower Water (33%)*, Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glycerin, Betaine, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Cryptomeria Japonica Leaf Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Bacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Ceramide NP (1500ppm), Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil (20mg) (*Organic ingredient) 

I was expecting everything, but I didn't expect that Urang is so interesting to you! Urang is an eco Kbeauty brand that I need to try more. Lately, I'm missing the True Rose Repair Essence, but it seems like people on Pinterest likes Ceramide cream more. 

Bellflower Glutathione Power Brightening Cream

Bellflower Glutathione Power Brightening Cream 

Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Water, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Vinyl Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Caprylyl Methicone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Phenethyl Benzoate, Resorcinol, Water, Cetearyl Glucoside, Tromethamine, Palmitic Acid, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Stearic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ethylhexylglycerin, Alcohol, Hydroxylated Lecithin, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Arbutin, Glutathione, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Glucose, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Polyglyceryl-10 Stearate, Panthenol, Pearl Extract, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Biotin, Pyridoxine, Folic Acid, Cyanocobalamin, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Thiamine HCl, Linoleic Acid, Inositol 

Glutathione is still a mysterious ingredient, even if it's an antioxidant. It is supposed to brighten the skin. Bellflower is quite an unknown brand, but they base their products on quite innovative ingredients like idebenone, azulene and glutathione. 


The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice Mask

The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice Mask 

Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Luffa Cylindrica Fruit, Kaolin, Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil/Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, PEG-100 Stearate, Alcohol Denat., Decyl Glucoside, Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire d’abeille, Perlite, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter/Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter,Parfum/Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Salicylic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Limonene, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Propylene Glycol, Myristyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Menthol, Panax Ginseng Root Extract/Panax Ginseng (Ginseng) Root Extract, Disodium EDTA, Citral, Citronellol, Linalool, Menthoxypropanediol, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Eugenol, Dextrin, Oryza Sativa Extract/Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide. 

I guess I lied to you because The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice Mask is another of my favourite masks. I love ginseng - it's one of my favourite ingredients and this year you might see it here more often. This mask is probably the best from the whole TBS series, and I had lots of fun taking photos for this series of masks. It reminds me of old great times. 

Celefit The Bella Collection Palettes

Celefit The Bella Collection Palettes 

Talc, Mica, Magnesium/Potassium/Silicon/Fluoride/Hydroxide/Oxide, Nylon-12, Boron Nitride, CI 77492, Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491, Magnesium Stearate, Magnesium Myristate, Hexyl Laurate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Diisostearyl Malate, Dimethicone, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/Hexastearate/Hexarosinate, CI 77499, Ultramarines, CI 19140, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Methicone, Glyceryl Caprylate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane 

Celefit palettes are my favourite for everyday use, but somehow The Bella Collection Palette Episode #02 is quite popular on Pinterest. I guess the warm, classy brown tones made people interested in it, but you shouldn't sleep on Celefit. They have glitter shades to die for and 

Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Serum

Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Serum

sh-Oligopeptide-1, sh-Polypeptide-1, Butylene Glycol, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Chlorphenesin, Guaiazulene, Ethylhexylglycerin, Adenosine 

I used to love Klairs, and I still love it, but thanks to COVID-19, I have fewer options to get Klairs products since my favourite Klairs seller in Poland decided to shut so no place for me to buy Klairs. Still, if you want to try peptides then Klairs is one of the first brands you should check - it's an affordable serum with Guaiazulene, one of my favourite calming ingredients. 


Veoli Gommage Peel

Veoli Gommage Peel 

Aqua, Glycerin, Amylose, Kaolin, Betaine, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Aqua, Glycerin, Quercus Robur Bark Extract, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Pentylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Propylene Glycol, Aqua, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Polysorbate 80, Xanthan Gum, Parfum 

The last product today is a tiny Polish accent. Veoli grew a lot in the last few years, and now they have matcha peel which I plan to try once I'm done with retinoids (unless I plan to stay on retinoids). The packaging of Veoli peel went under rebranding and it looks even better than before, but the price also went up. 

And that's all I had for you today. Do you remember any of these posts and products? What would you like to see more on Kherblog?
