The skincare is supposedly light-weight and is quickly absorbed into the skin - making it suitable to use under your makeup too!

VERDICT?

First of all, I really liked how gentle the entire skincare was and the smell of it!
It didn't have an added fragrance scent but more like...something that's medical grade?
It's really hard to explain but I really liked it! 
It's very light-weight (as mentioned) so my skin didn't feel greasy throughout the day.
I think it's important to know that DEEP CLEANSING doesn't mean you need to SCRUB or EXFOLIATE. You can achieve clearer skin with a gentle cleanser and skincare too!
Not to mention the entire range isn't crazy expensive so it's suitable for teenagers who are suffering with acne too! Definitely recommend it.


So did my skin improve over 2 days?
Here's a before/after!


 My acne scar is still there - I usually take a long time to recover but you can definitely tell that it got lighter!! Right? The redness definitely subsided and I'm excited to see if it can completely get rid of this pesky scar! 


The Hiruscar Anti-Acne range is available at selected Watsons and Guardian stores.

Hey y'all!!
OMGSH TODAY I HAVE SUPER GREAT NEWS TODAY!!!!


YES! Our favorite K-Beauty online store has launched their very own product!!!!!!!
What is it?
*opens box*


It's the Petal Velvet Powder!!!!
It's a translucent powder that sets makeup and leaves a silky finish to the touch.
It helps to control sebum but without drying out the skin for a fresh, radiant look.


They also use natural & cruelty free ingredients!
Some of the ingredients they have includes...

Althea Seeds Oil - Althea is one of the most resilient flowers in the world and it's full of natural antioxidants that helps to protect the skin's barrier from dehydration

Polyphenol - helps to protect the skin from sun exposure and ultraviolet radiation damages. 

Saponarin - Helps to repair damaged skin cells and restores elasticity to premature signs of aging.

You can just see how fine the powder is from just this photo!
It might look white-ish but it applies with a translucent finish!


One thing I wanted to point out is this PUFF!!!
I couldn't stop touching it because it's SO SOFT!!!!
It's 13mm - which makes it very thick n fluffy!


Before applying the powder...


*pat pat pat*


The powder is very light-weight, finely milled, and translucent. 
I think this will do really well for baking (the face).
I tried it and it actually did a pretty good job and it's very compact so it doesn't clutter up my makeup pouch!
