[REVIEW] COSRX Centella Blemish Cream


Hi guys! 
This is the second part of my review sponsored by BBcosmetic.com
Previously I reviewed the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch here

I would like to give my thanks to BBcosmetic for sponsoring a few COSRX products for me to try and there will be more to come in this review series.

From COSRX; "Centella Blemish Cream improves the appearance of acne and relieves stressed skin. It is directly applied on the acne to give hydration and active ingredients. Zinc oxide and centella asiatica leaf water normalize the sebum production by calming down the problematic area and cleaning out the pores. They prevent further breakouts and loss of moisture."

Correct application method
1.Use AM and PM after wash, toner, and serum. Use only the small amount on affected area where skin is easily irritated, prone to acne, and oily.
2.If troubled by continuous breakouts, use with Centella Blemish Ampule to give better outcome.


According to Cosdna.com, the ingredients for this cream are mostly non-irritant nor acne trigger. However, watch out for Cetearyl Alcohol if you are sensitive to that.


The cream came in a very small amount, 30ml.

The expired date instead of production date.

I've used 70% of it already.


Does leave a little bit of white cast. If you don't like the white cast, apply only a small amount because it's enough. I personally didn't care about the white cast since it's skincare coz it can be easily cover up under my makeup.


I was actually surprised on how small the tube was which is 30ml. I originally thought that this will not last longer however it did because a little goes a long way.

The cream itself is white and leave a white cast but it depends on the amount that you applied. I usually use about 1/3 of the spatula given with the cream and it's already enough for my whole face. This amount didn't leave on much white cast on the face if you pat them carefully instead it just brighten up the whole complexion.

There's a scent to it which is like root-y or herb-y but it wasn't too strong. I believe it came from the main ingredient because there is no fragrance in this cream.

I myself didn't need much moisture into my routine and a little of the cream already gives me plenty of that. The moisture last really long on the face too.

The cream works for me as it prevents my face from having further breakout. I wouldn't say that it heals the acne magically like the pimples patch however I like it that it didn't made my breakout worst. 

If I had any acne, it would pair this up with the pimple patches. Since the pimple patches would absorb all the nasty things, I would use this cream after the acne all flat to recover the damage skin/heal the scar and it works so well together. 

I would only use this on days when I had breakout since the cost of this tiny cream is quite pricey. It's best to save as much as I could. I hope they can came out with a bigger version since this could only last on me about 2+ months.

Overall, I would recommend this for everyone to try if you are not sensitive to alcohol. Based on the cosrx website, the advice to pair it with the centella ampoule which I wanted to but I only have the propolis one on hand.

I rate this;

Thank you for reading :)

[REVIEW] BBia Last Lip Mousse


Hey guys!
Before that, please don't laugh at these pictures, I literally have no idea why I use chillis as backdrop lmao XD But it looks good though XD

Anyway, today is the review for this BbiA Last Lip Mousse in No.3 which I have no idea what the name is, it started with Kiss something, I can't read that XD

Previously I posted a haul I did with testerkorea which is quite a few months ago and I've been wanting to buy this particular colour of lip mousse since I just saw them after I paid for my order. Since it hasn't been processed yet so I thought I might sent testerkorea an e-mail to add an item and they replied me right away asking which product it is. So after I tell them which it was, they sent me a link to pay and there you go, I got it in the same order without having to pay for an additional shipping fee!Yeay!

Promo picture

I don't think this came with a box as far as I remembered.

A lot of Korean brands have this kind of applicator now which I like because it doesn't bend.

Showed the feathered liquid on the right in case you want to see if there's any difference.

Sorry for my weird face XD


You might see in the picture that the colour is pinky red and it is how the colour looks like in real life but with redder tone on me. I think it is a gorgeous colour to be worn even on normal days because there are many ways to tone it up or down. 

In the picture above, I don't fully apply my lip because it might look too bright for me so I feathered it out using lip brush or on usual days, I just used my fingers.

Depending on how you wear it, it would turn moist or matte. I specifically likes the "matte" version better since it feels nothing on the lip and it is not over glossy for me. Plus, it doesn't feel even for the "matte" application.

The color might disappear if you drink or eat and it is easy to remove. I didn't do close up lip photo as I usually do because in the photo above, I already applied it 3 times with eating and drinking as intervals..because it might look gross up close..haha

Overall, I love this lip mousse, it doesn't dry out my lip and the color is true to the promo picture.
Hope to try a lot more BbiA products after this :D

I rate this;


Thank you for reading :)

[REVIEW] COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch - Acne patches that REALLY WORKS!


Hey guys!
It's been forever since I post a review and I said this every time too XD

The first week of Eid just passed and I actually didn't realize that my days would be so packed and I don't even have the time to write a proper review. I guess things has calmed down a little and I can sit comfortably in front of my laptop and write a review.

Before I start, I want to mention that this review is sponsored by;

They have been so kind to let me choose a few products from their homepage to try and guess what brand I chose? Yep, it's COSRX! I knew that this brand is the hype lately and of course I had been jumping into the bandwagon since last year! I never really posted a proper review about this brand before although I've been using it for sometime now and it seem that a lot of you are curious about it and did it works on my East Asian skin and "summer-all-the-year weather" here so here you go :D

Anddd before the review again, I have a discount coupon code for you from BBcosmetic!

Use this code , Z8J0SDQ8YJW for 10% off your order and they offered FREE SHIPPING too!

They have a large amount of authentic Korean Beauty products that you may want to check it and they shipped WORLDWIDE! Go ahead and check out some daily sales!





I have been using this for some time now and I could say that I have finished about 4 packets of this patches to heal my acne :D

At first I was a bit skeptical about this patch because I don't think it will magically heal your acne so soon but I was so wrong! The first time I applied this onto the skin on the night before I went to sleep and the next day it's all flat and the redness reduced! I didn't think that it was believable but that was happen to me.

Honestly I never actually wear acne patches before, I don't know why? Maybe it wasn't that interesting to me nor maybe I don't think it would work at all. After my first packet were finished, I didn't have any backup so I bought an acne patches from Watsons/Guardian store and tried it out and it doesn't work at all for me. The glue wasn't as strong as this Cosrx acne patches and it slipped off easily.

As I said, the glue for this acne patches were very strong so if you had a lot of facial hair like me, wearing it for a long time may require you to tear the patch very carefully or it's gonna grab along all those hairs and hurt you. But it wasn't nothing big, I like it like this much better than the one that slipped off easily and this won't even budge no matter what.

As a reminder, it is important that your face is thoroughly cleaned from oil or any skincare before applying the patches especially on the problem spot because the glue won't work so much as it was on clean skin. My usual flow is to apply the patches first and then apply all of your normal skincare so that it won't bother whatever that is happening under the patch.

You'll see that there is a white dot on top of your patches and it indicates that it has absorbs all the nasty things under your skin and you either have to replace new patches or not depending on acne condition. If you think that it has died down, then no more patches but if you think that it is still inflamed or has a slight bump, I recommend on putting a new patch on top.

The result may varies on what type of acne you had. Once I had a "thick skin-acne" which the patch probably can't absorb on whatever under my skin so it can't be help. But this is a rare case for me. For most of the time it does work. Some works magically overnight and some works on the forth night.

My skin before and after. This took me 2 weeks to heal properly since it was so deep. The left was actually taken after a week and it is actually bigger than that.

Thank you for reading. I have a few of COSRX products to review next so make sure to keep reading.
