BNTgirl x THE LAVICOS Whitening C Ampoule

Continuing with the theme of a white Christmas, I’ll be reviewing another whitening product! At least something has to be white this Christmas, and it better be my face! I’m working towards being pale enough to wear my winter foundations again.

I’ll be reviewing, on Christmas, a whitening serum: THE LAVICOS Whitening C Ampoule!

It comes in a set of 4, each set to expire two weeks after it’s first  opened (or pumped). It’s suppose to be a continuous 4 week regiment added onto a routine or to replace the serum part of a skincare routine.

Unfortunately I could only use one bottle within two weeks, or maybe not so unfortunately, I want to make the product last I guess.

The picture makes it look like a HUGE set of four serums but they’re actually cute pump bottles the size of a mini serum. But each bottle contains a lot!

In order to first use it, it comes with a unique set of instructions, first pumped it once to break the seal and then shake it to mix in the vitamin C capsules with the rest of the serum!

As you can see below, in the new bottle it has a clear liquid on the bottom (serum) and some orange petite capsules of vitamins C, and Palmitoyl
Pentapeptide-3 which is a patented ingredient which is suppose to help with skin damage and help the overall appearance of the skin.MAKE MY SKIN RADIANT I WANT TO GLOW BRIGHTER THAN A FULL MOON!

I usually pump out one pump into the palm of my hand and then pat it into my face. Pat pat pat. It absorbs well, just sinks into my skin. Nothing much there, just nice absorption.

I don’t know if you can see it, but it’s a orange liquid, and it has some shimmer to it which I think is totally adorable. What’s nice about this vit. C product is that it doesn’t only contain just vitamin C but it also contains other things (fermented too!) such as;  yeast of mistletoe, beans and extracts of Saccharomyces. Fancy, huh?

I think so. I personally couldn’t tell if it whitened me, so I asked my friend Mark, and he said my skin looked good, so maybe.

Side note: I found that vitamin C products usually broke me out, but this one didn’t.  So if you are sometimes prone to break outs with vitamin C but want to look more radiant with the help of vitamin C and it’s magic; maybe try this!

Overall I’d rate this a 7/10. I think I need to test it out further, but for now, it seems cool.

BNTgirl x iSOi ACNI Dr. 1st Control Essence

Sometimes like all human beings I get skin care problems.

Hormonal acne especially troubles me once a month. I’ll get some small pimples, though it doesn’t sound too bad they’re extremely noticeable against the rest of my clear skin.

So today I’ll be reviewing a product that helped me get by those monthly woes;  iSOi ACNI Dr. 1st Control Essence.

SAMSUNG CSC

It’s a serum/essence that helps with skin care overall;  ft. blemishes, dryness and troubled skin overall.

Like always iSOi has fantastic glass packaging that makes it feel quite luxurious.

SAMSUNG CSC

Being by iSOi I expected nothing less than it being absorbed into my skin quickly and easily. The absorption was great and felt light. The cream itself has a mild fragrance so it won’t irritate the skin any further. The essence also boasts that it has no chemical ingredients and that it’s all natural, and I believe it.

SAMSUNG CSC

The serum helped my acne fade away naturally and my skin imperfections less imperfect. It helped my redness around my cheeks and nose fade and for the first time in forever I went out with almost no make up on to school. I only have my brows done in the picture below, and that’s it.

I think overall I’d rate this a 8/10. I don’t think you should treat this like a acne treatment by itself but rather a face imperfection remover instead.

If you’re interested you can buy it here for $30.

BNTgirl x Neogen CODE 9 Lemon Green Caviar Essence and Tox Tightening Pack

For my last review for my March box, I’ll be telling you the secret to my flawless radiant skin for the month.

Wow fantastic baby.

I’ll be reviewing Neogen CODE 9 Lemon Green Caviar Essence and Tox Tightening Pack.

SAM_3303

Inside the white container had yellow gauze pads on one side and cotton pads on the other side.

After inspecting the contents you surprisingly had to pour the liquid into the gauze/cotton pad combo and then in a even more stranger twist put in the refrigerator for 9 hours before even using it.

SAM_3311

I thought it was too complex at first but after trying it for a few weeks I’m a believer.

I usually use it after a shower and toner to make sure my face is completely clean. Then according to instructions, start with the cotton pad side first and then in a sweeping motion go from the inner face to the outer face. It’s really cool and refreshing especially after a shower, it just immediately cools the face and closes the pores.

After that you use the yellow gauze side and sweep again from the inner part of your face outwards.

The combination of the dual sided pad helps absorb and maintain that radiant glow afterwards.

I’ve been truly loving this product everyday, it helps clear my skin and make sure I can go out barefaced without being too worried about my complexion!

BNTgirl x iSOi Bulgarian Rose Blemish Serum Rehash

Good morning everyone.

Something strange, yet wonderful happened, I got to review the same item twice! Or really they sent me the same item I had gotten previously, and loved, and in a even bigger size!

SAMSUNG CSC

I’d just like to link you my previous review here where you can read my in dept review of iSOi Bulgarian Rose Blemish Serum.

You can see my previous video review of it below.

The fresh rose scent and rapid absorption were my favorite features previously.

I can’t tell you how excited I was to get it again, like, super duper. I really loved it the first time I got it in the 20ml size, so much so I emptied it! I don’t often empty products because I get so many to try out, but I kept using iSOi Bulgarian Rose Blemish Serum until it was gone, so I was sad when I used it all.

SAMSUNG CSC

I didn’t feel like forking out around ~$50 for it, but now that I’ve gotten it again, I’m seriously considering stocking up on it and using them forever!

The container still maintains it’s luxurious glass bottle, and comes with a even nicer pump now, or what I think looks nicer. Overall I think they did well with the size upgrade (now 35ml) as you get more bang for your buck now.

SAMSUNG CSC

The serum’s suppose to help with blemishes but I found that it mainly helped with my overall complexion. It helped with my uneven skin tone that I occasionally get, and with my minor acne I get from hormones.

Check out my other iSOi reviews; toner, and cream.

Overall I’ll keep the rating the same, 8/10.

You can get it here for $66 (on amazon)

Review: Belif Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate

Alo people, I’m here today to review the second part of the set I got from Belif for being a BNTgirl.

The first part of the set was the cream, which you can read about here.

Today I’ll be reviewing the serum that came with it, Belif’s Peat Miracle Revital Serum. It contains Peat as its main ingredient as well, making it the peat set. (hehe I just think peat is such a fun word. Peat. Peat. Repeat.)

SAMSUNG CSC

The serum is suppose to help with cell turnover, dullness of the skin and is used as a preventative for wrinkles. Aka “revital”-izing your skin! What’s so amazing about peat itself you may ask? Well read below for some more information about Peat itself.

Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate_3

It comes in a super cute bottle, like the cream it comes in a green-glassy container. Super cute. So visually it’s really pretty/cute off the bat.

The serum is released with a super cute dropper, it’s recommended 2-3 drops is more than enough for your face but I’ve been using 3 everyday just for good measure to get all of my face.

SAMSUNG CSC

Like the cream, it smells earthy/herbaly but still in a good way, the scent is a bit stronger in the serum than it is in the cream, probably because the serum is more concentrated. It still doesn’t smell bad, it just smells more earthy which I like more than vanillas/florals.

Overall I think this is an okay serum, I prefer to stick to my iSOi Bulgarian Rose Blemish Serum (reviewed here), because I tend to have small blemishes and I’m not truly worried about the dullness of my skin, yet.

But it’s quite pricey as serums are, you can buy it on amazon here for $53.

I’m giving this product a Doris 7.5/10.

Review: Belif Peat Miracle Revital Cream

Bonjour toute le monde (Hello everyone!), I’m here today to review part of the set I got from Belif as a part of my BNTgirl box.

The set comes with a serum and a cream, I’ll be reviewing the cream first!

SAMSUNG CSCThe cream features two natural ingredients; Peat (for which is named after) and Rhodiola Root. Both of which help cell turnover or what I presume to be as to help my new skin cells appear on the surface of your skin. For a more youthful appearance. Wow very fresh skin!

Belif is also proud to be a more natural company as they don’t use a bunch of synthetic compounds.

Such as;

  • No mineral oil
  • no synthetic fragrances
  • no synthetic colors
  • no synthetic preservatives
  • no animal-derived ingredients

First thing you notice is the pretty green pot that holds the cream, second thing is the smell, it smells very earthy-herbal-y. It smells very earthly. Which isn’t a bad thing, it smells very natural unlike all the other floral-y/vanilla scented creams I have.

SAMSUNG CSC

Texture wise it’s a more solid cream. Meaning that if I try to push my finger down I’ll have resistance against it. Which is cool.

Since most Korean skin creams are all about the more liquidy types of creams Belif’s more solid creams are a nice change.

 

belifcream

The cream itself fairs very well against my skin. It spreads evenly and with a cool touch. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling too greasy nor too heavy, making it a great face cream in my book.

After using it I didn’t notice much a difference beside the hydration of my skin being kept up. But that’s probably because I might be younger than the demographic of the cream’s unique skin renewal.

You can find this cream here for $64.49, which makes it a more expensive cream.

I’m giving this product a 7/10 on the Doris scale, it’s a good product but I don’t know if I can justify a $65 face cream for a 20 y/o.
