REVIEW ON ALIVE:LAB MULTI ICE CREAM

Hi,

Looking for a fermented Korean brand gel moisturiser for oily skin or for summer?

How about having a look at my review on this Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream?

Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream is not the food ice cream but the name just makes you think it is one right?  It is a gel moisturiser made for oily skin type or for the hot season when most moisturiser just feel too heavy on the skin. I have been loving their ALIVE:Lab Centella Dressing Powder which is a great skincare item.


A little about the company: Alive Lab was established to realize all of our dream - making clean, healthy and bright skin. We do our best to protect sensitive and pure skin using natural, but powerful ingredients.

ALIVE:LAB Multi ICE Cream

Description:
Cool down the skin heated by troubles and UV rays.  Heat from skin troubles may cool down thanks to this Cream!
It controls heat of skin thanks to its Canadian Glacail Milk.
You can use it with Centella and Lemon Powder.
It makes your skin moist and healthy as it is formulated with Galactomyces.

Usage suggestion:
After washing face, after toner and apply it gently according to the skin texture.

Active Ingredients:
Canadian glacial milk : skin cooling
Galactomyces ferment filtrate : skin nourishment

Ingredients:
Glacial water, Glycerin, Dipropylene glycol, Beta-Glucan, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Squalane, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Arginine, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/ VP Copolymer, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum, Adenosine, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Hydrogenated lecithin, Octyldodecanol, Capryl glycol, Purified Water, Green Tea, Galactomise fermented filtrate, Perfume



Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream has really nice packaging. It also comes with a spatula to take the product out from the jar.  Inside the jar is a thin plastic lid which explains the reason that it can't hold the spatula.


The beneficial ingredients are:

Polyacrylate-13 with the ability to absorb as much as 200 to 300 times its mass in water so your skin gets all the hydration it needs.  Beta glucan is used for dermatitis, eczema, wrinkles, bedsores, wounds, burns, diabetic ulcers, and radiation burns.

Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF) which is a popular fermented ingredient is used as a moisturizing agent in cosmetics. It is provides antioxidant effects in human skin cells.  

Allantoin skin-soothing and skin-conditioning agent

Squalane is a popular great ingredients that moisturise the skin but it isn't clogging/

Niacinamide is already a popular ingredients known for brightening and helping the skin with healing.

Hydrogenated lecithin is a skin restoring ingredient which helps to reduce flakes and restore suppleness.


Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream contains ferments such as beta glucan and Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF) so if you have fungal acne, it is not recommended.


Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream has the texture of a light gel which melts into watery liquid upon application on the skin and doesn't sting or irritate my skin. It leaves a slight glowing look if you pat it well into the skin.  Make sure to pat the cream well onto the skin unless you enjoy the 'wet' look on the skin.  The floral scent doesn't last that long on the skin since it disappeared once it dries up.  It does moisturise my skin and keep it hydrated without feeling greasy for more than eight hours.

As for the cooling feeling, it really depends on the temperature of your skin. I have tried it when my skin is flushing red so I can feel the slight cooling feeling for a few seconds.  There is no cooling feeling when my skin is on the normal temperature.

I think the huge jar can last me some time. I am just a bit lazy when it comes in jar since I have to decant it into another smaller jar for fear of contamination.

Overall, Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream is a nice gel moisturiser that is able to seal in all the products onto your skin so it works really great as night cream for combination or oily skin type.  It is also a nice addition of fermented, moisturising and is water based moisturiser.  Just do not expect this to get rid of acne since there isn't any 'strong' acne buster ingredients in there.

[ALTHEA X WITHSHYAN] SUMMER NEGATIVE SPACE FRUIT NAIL ART DESIGN

Hi nail art lovers,

I was excited to receive the Withshyan Nail It Box which is really great for summer nail art design.  I think it would be a great to create a simple DIY on negative space combined with fruit design for a minimalist design that is in trend for 2017.

So, here is the Summer negative space fruit nail art design using products from Withshyan .

Pineapple (thumb), grapes (pinky), pear(ring finger), durian(middle finger) and watermelon (index finger). I wonder which one you like?

Things needed:
withshyan Nail polishes in :
-Honeymoon is a bright red color with fine black glitters.
-Green Latte is a yellowish light green.
-Green Leaf is a dark green.

-filler base
-UV gel nail top coat
-peel off
-nail polish remover
-toothpick or tiny watercolour brush or bobby pin(optional)
-ruby pusher or tweezer (optional)



Tutorial on a simple Korean design, negative space Watermelon nail art.
1. Apply base coat.
2. Apply the peel off around the nail, and on half of the nail. Be generous with the amount and be careful because this is very important for the outcome of the nail.
3. Apply two coat of Green latte(light green) over the inner part of the nail. Let it dry.
4. Apply the peel off with a very thin line near the cuticle. Do leave a thin space before the cuticle. make sure to apply a few layer on top of each other and be careful during application.
If you do not have peel off, you can cut scotch tape or reinforcement ring.
5. Apply Green leaf(dark green) near the cuticle.
6. Apply Honeymoon(red) after the peel off.
7. Wait for both to dry properly.
8.Peel off carefully.
9. Apply top coat to make it look like gel nail.



So, that is the tutorial on a simple negative space watermelon nail art. You can change the green latter to Green leaf (dark green) if two layers of watermelon skin is difficult.  I don't use gel nail polishes since I don't UV nail polishes or the UV lamp so using the normal nail polishes can also product beautiful effect too.

You don't have to use the same brand of nail polishes as I do. Since I received the box for review and it has so many colours that I want to use, I just thought that it would be good idea to share a Korean nail art using Korean nail polishes.


Do you like the watermelon nail art design? Do you like the other fruit design too?  If interested, let me know so that I can come up with a tutorial for it.

So here is an unboxing of Althea X Withshyan Nail It Box.

Inside the box there are 21 nail products.  9 nail lacquer/nail polishes, filler base, UV gel nail top coat, nail polish remover, peel off, paper file, ruby pusher, paper nail file, nail art sponge, toe separators,1 genie sticker and 3 random favourite stickers.


List of Withshyan nail polish colours:
Honeymoon is a bright red color with fine black glitters.
Bouquet is a really pretty soft glittery pink. The most popular colour for bridal nails.
Spring golden bell is a bright yellow.
Mango is a bright light orange.
Reddish purple is a purple with pink undertone to it.
Geranium is a bright red colour with orange. 
Green Latte is a yellowish light green.
Green Leaf is a dark green.
Lapis Lazuli is a deep bright blue.


I really like  Withshyan Nail It Box since it allows me to do a lot of nail art and patterns.

Spring golden bell, Mango, Honeymoon, Reddish purple, Geranium, Bouquet, Green Latte, Green Leaf, Lapis Lazuli.  The nail polishes are really vibrant, smooth and dry fast.  The colours are just perfect for this summer given that pastel goes well with the this year fashion trends. Their nail products are of good quality and definitely worth the money.

What I really like from this box is the peel off which you can use to create a lot of patterns on the nail. This make it a lot easier to do nail art on the other hand using my non dominant hands. I think many of you can understand that it is really a struggle to just apply nail polish using our non dominant hand.

The top cot is really great to create the gel nail polish look. Apply it on top for the gel nail effect look which is really nice.

Overall, Withshyan Nail It Box is a great box to get and I love every products inside this box.  I will probably do more nail art design in the future.


Lastly, bonus picture.

REVIEW ON HELLO SKIN JUMISO WATER SPLASH MASK SHEET

Hi,

Sheet masks has become popular with famous celebrities and beauty influencers attested to using one sheet mask per day for the fast immediate hydration of the skin and also sheet masks have appeared as the essential items to use before makeup even on runaway.

Recently Korean brand,  Hello Skin Jumiso has become popular in Instagram for the very cute and pretty packaging.  So here is a review on this Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask sheet.

Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask sheet has a cute packaging and a box consist of 5 sheet masks. It has a golden seal at the top of the box.  There are five variants to the mask and the one I got is the one for hydration which is great for dry skin type and for over exfoliated skin.

Their sheet made are cupra sheet made from 100% cotton and is the thinnest sheet mask at the moment. It really felt soft like silk.  There is a mesh sheet with handle to avoid the sheet mask get torn off.

Ingredients wise, the first ingredient is water, followed by glycerin.  There is beta glucan, some plant extracts (xylitol,laminaria japonica etc) , marine ingredients such as algae and spirulina, vitamin E, allatioin, arginie. castor oil, ceramide, shea butter and few hyaluronic acids.  Brightening and healing ingredients such as vitamin C and niacinamide, Most of the ingredients are gearing towards hydration and moisturising for drier skin type.

Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask sheet does have scent that is typical of men's products. I don't mind the scent since I do use products marketing for male.  The scent does persist until the sheet mask dries off.  I am not sure about what others think but I don't think the scent is strong at all but if you are the one that prefer floral, fruity kind of smell marketed for women then this might not be the scent you are looking for.

I find that the fit of the mask is great because I have something that finally covers my jaw line.  The sheet mask adhere to my skin even being that thin and the essence is actually slightly gelish milky which is interesting.  It doesn't drip down to my neck even when the sheet mask is thin showing the ability to hold essence.  There is extra essence which I use to apply on my leg. Honestly, one need to use more than just one sheet mask to see the obvious effect on the skin.  I use three of the sheet masks from the box to confirm my views on it.  I really find that it helps my skin to hydrate and heal my skin when it is irritated without clogging my pores.  Not sure about brightening since most sheet mask brighten my skin slightly.

Overall, Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask is affordable, nice interesting ingredients, comes with a really cute beautiful packaging, keep my skin hydrated, heal it and if you don't mind the scent. Hopefully Hello Skin Jumiso will do something to the fragrance because most people dislike such scent,

So rice is even part of beauty regime since ancient time and it was especially popular for washing the face with rice water from the third wash.  Sorry, I don't do that because I am just too lazy😔

COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask Is a really popular sleeping mask because it contains 65% of Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract and because of its affordability.  The ingredients are basically moisturising but it does have Cetearyl Alcohol, silicone, palm oil and olive oil that can be too heavy for some people😶. (combination or oily skin type)

It doesn't have any strong smell which is good. It does smells like rice water if you get what I mean. COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask is smooth and feels really light which is nice. Unfortunately, it clogged my pores like it did with my forehead(I rarely breakouts on my forehead). I had tried it more than 5months so I am pretty sure it is this one.

I find that it is excellent to help dry patches around my mouth and on my body.  However, it just doesn't play well if I applied in the morning or on a hot humid day😡. It caused my face to be oily and also clogged.   It is great to seal in all the skincare products that I use😍 provided that I use it during cold days(27 celcius is consider cold here😆) and apply very little.  For dry mature skin without sensitivity to oil palm or clogging problem, COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask will works better😍.

Remember to keep inside the fridge because in a humid place like South East Asia as the oil can separate and it will spoil really fast because the plastic jar is exposed to the air.  Cosrx had the tube for Christmas.  I don't know if they are thinking of making the tube for long term as I don't get reply from them.  I heard having COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask in tube will avoid spoiling from happening.

Overall, COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask is a great sleeping mask or moisturiser for dry skin type, during winter and if you don't get irritated to any of the ingredients(specially the palm oil or the olive oil in it).
