About Some By Mi

I’ve been following the beauty trend, and if your K-beauty junkie, you’ve just heard the brand called Some By Mi.

The name Some By Mi originates from the combination of the words “Something”, “By A Miracle” and “Mi” which stands for “beauty” in Korean “미”. Something interesting is that the hanja (Chinese character) form of “미” is 美.

They aim to make products without causing any inconvenience, such as skin concerns or using complicated ingredients. The best part is since they’ve been completed with Skin Irritation Test, which can be safely used on sensitive, problematic skin.

Since the brand promises to formulate its products with mild and skin-friendly, natural ingredients are FREE from harmful chemicals such as carcinogens, colourants and parabens.

Benefits of Some By Mi Product Line

Some By Mi has four product lines, where each targeted for specific skin concerns such as:

  • Snail Truecica: for promoting collagen production and assisting in skin rejuvenation and healing
  • AHA-BHA-PHA: to address modern skin problems and has everything you need to cleanse, heal and revitalise acne-prone skin
  • Yuja Niacin: to brighten dull and uneven skin tone

Unleashia Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint | N°4 Humming Review

Do you notice that tons of brands right now produce a glittery lip tint? The best part of it, most of them doesn’t make your lips feel sticky.

I attracted to this one Korean brand called Unleashed that produced, and I would say that it’s a combination of glossy and tint. I scroll their Instagram and thinking a lot, and I ask my husband to buy it for me and tada!

Here’s my review on Unleashia Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint, shade N°4 Humming.

Unleashia Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint N°4 Humming

About Unleashia

Unleashia Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint N°4 Humming Unleashia Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint N°4 Humming

What is Non-Sticky Dazzle Tint?

It’s a non-sticky vegan formulation. Comes in five shades, the tint is to provide a natural and glossy look.

There are a blend of rosehip, avocado, olive and jojoba seed oils to makes your lips stay moisturised all day long.

Lili thoughts:

I’m really excited to own one Unleashia product, and this is definitely the best purchase that I have made in a while.

Why? I never thought that I would wear glittery lip products in my life. Because I thought I’m a matte lipstick girl, but this definitely changes the game.

Like any other lip products with glitter, sadly, it transfers easily. But, this one, the tint last long. It will stain your lips except if you eat oily food. Personally, this is an excellent lipstick product, especially if you want to achieve that glowy makeup look in a matter of time.

Definitely worth to wait 2 weeks for this lipstick and I would love to have all the colours please!

I always feature skincare and makeup on my blog, but I want to let you know it’s also important to take care of yourself from head to toe. Therefore, I want to share about hair care and introduce you to one of Dr. Seed Solution Booster Natural Complex Therapy – Anti Dandruff.

Dr. Seed Solution Booster Natural Complex Therapy Anti Dandruff Dr. Seed Solution Booster Natural Complex Therapy Anti Dandruff

What is Solution Booster?

I want to clarify that booster is not a hair serum, and the products are meant to add to the shampoo of your choices. To add more benefits for your hair!

There are three types of boosters, such as:

  • Scalp Cleaning: Contains useful and unique ingredients for oily scalp care, including Dermatic AC3 and Centella Asiatica extract, witch-Hazel extract, lemon extract, green tea extract, tea tree leaf extract, and seawater.
  • Anti Hair Loss: Contains menthol, panthenol, salicylic acid ingredients. It’s useful to make a strength of the scalp and anti-hair loss.
  • Anti Dandruff

Anti Dandruff Solution Booster

If your scalp feels itchy, have dandruff, scratch scalp with nails while washing or get dandruff easily even though wash and shampoo thoroughly, the Anti Dandruff is a solution booster made for you.

Main ingredients: Avocado Oil, Kelp Extract, Allantoin (chamomile, sugar beets, wheat sprout & comfey).

Benefits: Clean pores by removing dirt & oil, balancing water-oil of your scalp, and normalise dead skin production cycle.

How to use: Put an adequate amount of shampoo to your hand, pump 1 or 2 drops of the booster to your shampoo and wash your hair thoroughly.

Dr. Seed Solution Booster Natural Complex Therapy Anti Dandruff
It’s a gel texture and very lightweight.
Dr. Seed Solution Booster Natural Complex Therapy Anti Dandruff
Pump 1 or 2 drops to your shampoo for the miracle goodness!

Lili thoughts:

I have dandruff problems for ages and it still building up right now. Due to that, I have tried tons of dandruff products, countless, so why not try the Anti Dandruff solution booster from Dr. Seed.

It’s my first time hearing about this concept and a bit sceptical. But, then, I was wrong. Even though Dr. Seed said you don’t have to buy shampoo from them, I will encourage you to do that because I’ve tried on two brands.

Brand A, hair fall shampoo is a bad combination as my hair felt super dry. Brand B, dandruff shampoo, great option. But, with Dr. Seed Super Seed Bomb Revitalize Shampoo, my hair felt super soft and smells good because of the peach scents. Love it!

It feels good after washing my hair because I can feel the cooling effects while waiting for my hair to air dry. Once it’s dry, the sensation is gone. Another thing is, I can comb my hair smoothly, no more stuck!

Overall, I recommend you to try the combination of solution booster and shampoo of your choices from Dr. Seed. If you have a dandruff problem, you might have found the right one for your hair!

Best combination ever!

Romand Zero Velvet Tint | 08 ICY Review

If I were to pick one makeup that I can bring while I’m stuck on the island, I’m going to for lipstick. My love for lipsticks are endless, and it always funs to know new collections from different brand. Which, this time I want to introduce to you about Romand (spell as Rom&nd).

Romand Zero Velvet Tint 08 ICY

What is Zero Velvet Tint?

A soft velvety lip tint in a range of most-requested, My Lips But Better (MLBB) colours that feel weightless on the lips.

There are few lines from Zero Velvet Tint that I saw on their official Korea website – Autumn, Baked and the original version that currently have 17 colours.

You can either do gradient or full lips with the lipstick.

Lili thoughts:

When I open the lipstick, I noticed the fragrance is strong and very perfumy. It’s lingering when I put it on my lips too. But, since the lipstick got lightweight texture without stickiness, I can handle the fragrance!

But, since the texture is velvety and it’s a tint, it will transfer once you drink or eat. The tint also won’t stain your lips, so it will be easy to get rid of it.

I’m glad I pick the 08 ICY shade, because it’s not too pinkish and muted, and I wish to have all of the colours, I do! Hopefully, I can get my hand on all of their products because all of the products seem lovely!

My Honest Review

This is my first bottle of First Care Activating Serum, and I’ve heard people love it and call it as one of the best anti-aging serum in the market.

With the fifth generation, Sulwhasoo stated as it’s more powerful than ever as an essential anti-aging booster that activates the skin’s natural renewal ability to rejuvenate youthful and glowing skin.

When I received the 60mL bottle, the first thing that I’m curious about is the fragrance and texture. The texture is very lightweight, watery and easy to absorb into the skin. Hence, makes it easy to let other products sink in after. Since it’s a Korean herbal medicine-based serum, the smell is relaxing! I tell you, it’s absolutely the best things to do when you inhale the herbal aroma during your morning routines. I can also see that my skin is getting clearer and gift me soft and radiant look. I’m blessed that this serum helps me to achieve my road to healthy skin. Can’t wait to finish the whole bottle! Because gurl, I want to stay youthful with ample hydration like the Sulwhasoo ambassador, Song Hye Kyo 😆

G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream | Review With and Without Using Makeup

Festive season doesn’t stop me to write something on this blog! Before I start, I want to wish Happy Eid Mubarak to all of my friends and may you have a wonderful festive month. Without further ado, let’s move on to the review.

I love K-Beauty products, especially skincare as most of them worked on my skin. Today, I’m so excited to review one of the products, G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream.

G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream

Before I start reviewing, let me tell you something quick about G9 Skin. 
G9 were named because of the 9 ingredients that formulate with anti-city pollution skincare concept. The ingredients help to purify and protect the tired skin to become a clean and healthy skin.

The 9 ingredients are 'Lotus extract, Ivy extract, Eucalyptus extract, Hibiscus extract, Chlorella extract, Pine Sprout extract, Oregano Leaf extract, Green Tea extract and Chia Seed extract'. Yes! All this goodies are inside each of their wide range of products.

G9 SKIN WHITE IN WHIPPING CREAM REVIEW

On the first day of Raya, I was all about taking a risk and trying out the G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream efficiently and review it with honesty.

TEXTURE

This cream claim to have a soft whipping texture, which I am 100% agree about it and it doesn’t feel sticky. But it was hard to get the product on my finger since its kind of watery and slippery. Since it’s rich with Hyaluronic, maybe that’s the cause of it.

Make sure to put a good amount on your skin. If you put too much, you will end up looking really pale.

G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream

FIRST DAY

After I did all my skincare routine, I put on the G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream at 9 AM as a makeup base.

On my first day, I tried the cream with makeup, whilw without makeup on the second day.

Lili thoughts on the first day:

Pros: Instant tone-up effect, give a blurring effect as I wear the makeup and  it does what it claims which are whitening, brightening and moisturising.

Cons: The effect doesn’t last long and my skin felt a oily.

As you can see on the both pictures above, my face become oily and I didn’t touch up my face with the cream because I want to see how it react.

G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream

SECOND DAY

Without wearing any makeup, I’m going to put this cream to the test. So, I start wearing the cream on 3.40 PM until 11:40 PM and I’m not sure whether its the cream, makeup or my skincare, but my skin is drying out a little bit on my right eyebrow and my nose. When I put on the cream on, it shows the residue on the effected area.

I do realised that this cream does cover up my under eye and makes my face looks alive. But, as you can see it was a bit oily, not as much as the first day.

G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream G9 Skin White in Whipping Cream

Kudos to the team because they made a really cute packaging ‘milk box’ that I can play around and get creative when I’m taking pictures. Besides face, the cream can be applied on discoloured are such as knees, elbows and others.
