Klairs Toner Review

Klairs toners — whether you choose the original Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner or Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner — deliver deep hydration and prepare your skin for the rest of your skincare routine for smoother, softer, more youthful skin.

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner is part of the brand’s Supple Preparation Line, which focuses on cleansing and hydrating the skin.

This facial toner is a rock star in the toner world — it has achieved cult and holy grail status, has won dozens of beauty awards, and has sold 1 million bottles by 2019.

It contained essential oils though. 

And while these essential oils provided the skin with healing and skin boosting benefits, it also came with a natural fragrance. That, and some of the natural oils caused reactions to very sensitive skin types.

So Klairs decided to come out with the Supple Preparation Unscented Toner, stripped of all essential oils but still packed with the same powerhouse ingredients. 

I’ve tried both products and as you will see, they’re both amazing additions to your skin care regimen.

I’m fairly new to the beautiful world of AXIS-Y, a relatively new player in the highly competitive k-beauty industry. 

But I love how their skincare philosophy is deeply rooted in the environment. They believe that climate, temperature, humidity, and other environmental stressors directly affect how our skin behaves. 

So their skincare line is especially formulated with these factors in mind.

I’ve tried their Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream. And today I’m sharing my thoughts on their New Skin Resolution Gel Mask, a lightweight wash off gel mask that soothes, moisturizes and calms irritated skin. 

Let’s see how it does.

AXIS-Y is a relatively new player in the highly competitive k-beauty industry. What makes them stand out and absolutely unique is their focus on climate-based and climate-inspired skincare.

They acknowledge that climate, temperature, humidity, and other environmental stressors directly affect how our skin behaves. So their skincare line is especially formulated with these factors in mind.

I also love how their products contain ingredients I’ve never used in my skincare routine before, like liquorice and chamomile in their Sunday Morning Refreshing Cleansing Foam, yam root in their New Skin Resolution Gel Mask, and sugar cane and narrowleaf hawkweed in their Daily Purifying Treatment Toner.

They have so many products I want to try! Today, we’re looking at their Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream, the moisturizer all of us combination skin folks have been waiting for.

Let’s get to it.

CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review

CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is a lightweight essence that provides long-lasting hydration, helps improve skin’s elasticity, soothes sensitive skin and more. It’s packed with a whopping 96% snail secretion filtrate and suited for all skin types.

CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review

I love discovering, using and, eventually, loving what can be considered as unusual skincare ingredients. 

Things like mugwort (I’m From Mugwort Mask), propolis (By Wishtrend Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule), rice (I’m From Rice Toner) and fig (I’m From Fig Cleansing Balm).

They’re not as widely known in North America but have been used in Asian skincare, specifically k-beauty, for a very long time. 

And for good reason. They’re gentle on skin and they work!

Snail mucin is another ingredient I have on my love-it list. It’s sometimes called snail slime, snail mucus, snail serum, snail goo and snail secretion filtrate.

Sounds yucky? Yes, it does. Good for the skin? Absolutely. 

Let’s dive in.

Melano CC Vitamin C Review

Rohto Melano CC Vitamin C evens out skin tone, helps reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots, prevents acne, boosts elasticity, and tightens pores for a brighter, healthier, more youthful complexion. 

Melano CC Vitamin C Review

Vitamin C is a powerhouse skincare ingredient. It’s been proven to:

  • Even out skin tone and texture 
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brighten overall complexion, and more

So of all the active ingredients out there, vitamin C was one of the top things I wanted to try and start using.

I have sensitive skin though, so I took it slow and very carefully (check out this vitamin C skincare guide for beginners if you want to learn more). 

Melano CC Vitamin C is one of the first vitamin C products I tried. 

Made by the same company that produces Hada Labo (a Japanese skincare line I trust a lot), I had every confidence that this product would be amazing too.
