Yes, I'm (30s) slightly obsessed with skincare. I enjoy it as part of my selfcare regimen and of course because of the fantastic results. However, it took years of try and error to figure out what works for me and what doesn't. Psoreasis and Couperose (Rosacea) didn't make the journey easier. And still don't...

Yet, there is so much lovely skincare to discover! I like trying out new brands and products, but only one new at a time to avoid disrupting my current skin condition. Happy I achieved something that varies between Mochi, Honey and Glass Skin. (Which also depends on my physical and mental well-being, sleep, nutrition, stress and hormonal cycles.)

Avoiding: cotton/bamboo/textile pads, face wipes, face brushes, microplastics, and some questionable ingredients 🧐

Love: 🇰🇷 K-Beauty, 🎭 situational skincare, ⚖️ biocompatibility, 🔄 advanced skin cycling, 🪸 algae and plankton, 🪆 7 skin method, 🏺face oils for my dry skin

While I prefer products without silicones, I do use some that contain them, particularly sunscreens, moisturizers and makeup.

Ratings: I am rating products for what they aim or claim to do and not for what I wish them to do. 1-2 stars:👎; 3 stars: mediocre; 4-5 stars:👍.

Everyone's skincare journey is a personal experience - what works for me, might not work for you, and the other way around.

Honestly I don't know what it is that makes it so good. Is it the mixture of fermented rice, green tea and algae? Maybe. Is it because these ingredients are allowed to ferment twice? Maybe. Or is it my belief that applying such an expensive product consistently over a long period of time simply MUST do something super special to my skin? Again, maybe. I've been using it for almost a year and noticed short as well as long-term benefits. The powerful Hadasei-3 essence instantly softens skin and makes it plump and bouncy. For the long run, it improved my overall skintone and texture. Big Plus: it's cruelty-free and vegan. I wish I wouldn't love this pricey magic essence... just ordered my next bottle.
