K-Review: Scinic Goat Milk Moist Cream

(23/06/18: Updated and edited some words! Hopefully it's better now  ` )

Today's review is!! Scinic Goat Milk Moist Cream. It's one of the recommendation for goat/donkey milk line skincare, and I am here to review it!

This is a cheaper alternative to TONYMOLY Premium Moisture Cream (24 USD), compared to Scinic Goat Milk Moist Cream (12 USD)

         

Description
"The highly moisturizing cream containing New Zealand goat milk keeps skin moisturized for long hours by providing abundant moisture and by forming a moisture protective layer over dehydrated skin"


Packaging
I don't have the box, since I had this for 2-3 months. The packaging was a milk carton and the container has a ceramic/glass material. So it resembles a traditional glass milk bottle. Sadly, it does not contain spatula. I know some people prefer it with one for hygienic purposes. The minimalist design makes it practical for stacking though!
Packaging:  (3.5/5)


Ingredients
For those who likes to see the ingredients before purchasing,  here is a link for the ingredients and the irritability level: link. It contains fragrance (baby powder). As it's listed the last of the list, I don't find the scent to be offensive or overwhelming.

The product also contains niacinamide which is well-known to be a skin brightening ingredient. And so, after using this moisturizer, you can see a temporary brightening result.

Head Ingredients: Goat Milk (50%), Cetearyl Alcohol, Niacinamide, Fragrance



Texture

The texture is very thick, and with a pea size amount it can cover half of your face (or your entire face, depending on how much you put on your moisturizer). The other thing is, it can feel like it sits on your face, much like a sunscreen. But after sometime of patting it into your skin, gradually by time you can feel it sink in. It does take a while though. In the website it does says that it "provide moisture by forming a moisture protective layer over dehydrated skin".

Irritability:  (3/5)




OVERALL: 2.5/5

It's a good moisturizer, but personally, it's nothing special. For people with dry or dehydrated skin, this cream might be better for them. Although there are tons of better moisturizers out there. This one isn't anything special. I only bought this out of curiosity and I needed a cream that contains niacinamide. Did it brighten my skin? Yes, very slowly. Would I repurchase? Not really. But this was a fun experience, it's also good for people that want to try a goat milk based moisturiser.

Pros:
-Moisturising
-Somewhat brightens your face by time
-Cheaper alternative to TONYMOLY
-Natural ingredients
-Doesn't break me out

Cons:
-Feels heavy
-Takes time to sink in
-Brightening process takes time
-Hard to find about it's CF information

 Also, remember: Just because it doesn't work for me, doesn't mean it won't work for you! 

Remember to invest in your skincare.

I recommend this for: People with dry or dehydrated skin, People that wants to try the goat milk line, People that wants to brighten their skin.

K-Review: Peripera's INK velvet | Celeb Deep Rose

To start the adventures of reviewing, I've decided to review a product that I already have: Peripera's infamous lip tint!


This shade is in Celeb Deep Rose, and you can purchase this for 8 USD on eBay!

The packaging is very practical, as it's very easy to carry around and has a hard matte material. It's also covered with a protective plastic to avoid scratches on the product. The applicator is very smooth and firm! It's very easy to glide over your lips and also create the cupid heart shape on your lips.
Overall, the packaging is very high quality and it's sealed good enough to prevent oxygen from drying the lip tint.

Packaging:  ★ (5/5)


Celeb Deep Rose has a red colour with orange undertone. This is perfect for people with warm undertones who wants a red colour lip tint that does not look too heavy. I find purple based red lip tint to look dull on me. This is suitable for everyday uses.


Most people love Peripera's INK velvet line for it's long lasting capability. The fading looks very natural and makes your lips look pink afterwards. The durability is probably around 3-4 hours before it fades. But compared to most lip products, it's surprising how long it takes for it to wear off, even after eating or drinking. 
Durability:  ☆ (4/5)

OVERALL: 5/5

This line has mostly pros and I have nothing bad to say about it! This is one of the best lip tints out there and is very affordable for students like me. It's long wearing and can be used for months. Would I repurchase? Definitely! Although, I might buy in a different shade as I do have a cold undertone.

I especially recommend this for: Students, or maybe cool people on IG with asian aesthetic that needs some minimalistic materials for their posts lmao.
