QUICK BITES: My Bro Said "Oh It's Your Lotions"

Oh hey, it's been a while since I've been busy with work and watching animes (again).  I already catch up with World Trigger and Kamisama Hajimemashita and I'm planning to start with another recommendation from my brother, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu.

I'm doing another random review (I'm now calling this kind of post Quick Bites) because I'm still not into doing a proper full review blog post but I hope it still interests you :D

Sulwhasoo Essential Balancing Emulsion
Another ginseng based product with a ginseng smell, this emulsion is just right during night time but is a bit heavy during these summer days and when I say heavy I mean sticky and looking greasy.  It works just like other emulsions and because it's doing just okay with my face, I started using it as a body lotion and surprise surprise as a brush cleaner.  It seems to have a fair amount of oil so I put this on my brush egg then swirl a dry brush.  Then I wet the brush and swirl again then rinse with water and the emulsion does the job.

Sulwhasoo Overnight Repairing Treatment
Sulwhasoo is a high end brand in Korea so I'm really into trying out their products and bought samples even though they are a bit pricey and unfortunately I'm disappointed.  This Sulwhasoo sleeping pack didn't beat my love for Laneige Water Sleeping Pack.  It's not as sticky as other sleeping packs and my skin mostly absorbs the product but it doesn't feel refreshing to's like I applied a medicinal cream.  Also, I get these hard bumps that look like a pimple when I use it (I currently have three after a month of using the sleeping pack/treatment which I use twice to thrice a week) and over time they darken.  Obviously my face is slightly hating it but my legs seems to like, it helps in soothing the itchiness of my skin.

Laneige Moisture Balancing Emulsion
I feel like my face is into Laneige products.  This emulsion is light enough to use during day time but still gives enough moisture and a little moist throughout the day.  Like other emulsions, it takes some time before my face absorbs it, so I wait around 5 minutes before I can apply my spf or makeup. Two more plus about this product is that one it doesn't irritate my skin (no bumps or red spots whatsoever) and two the smell is light and refreshing.

That's it.  It's summer here in the Philippines so Happy Summer and Enjoy the Sun!


  1. This is an interesting post. Too bad the night repairing treatment was a disappointment. I've also tried Korean products but they aren't really as good as I expected. I think it's because Korean skin may be different from ours plus the environment there is also different so most products won't really work as well.

    Stay Wonderful Always,
