I’m always on the lookout to try new skincare products that are both moisturising and good for acne-prone skin. On that note, I was super excited to receive these lovely skincare goodies from Style Korean. In this Style Korean Skincare Haul I have products from Benton and Cosrx that are known for having lots of great skincare products including many aimed for acne prone skin types. I’ll be posting up a review for all these items later on my blog after trying them out for a good amount of time.
First up in this haul is the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel which is aimed at those who have sensitive and trouble skin. The gel is said to contain 80% Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice that is rich in polysaccharides (helps to hydrate and retain moisture in the skin) and 10% Propolis Extract (known to have soothing properties). I was so excited to try out this Benton Aloe Gel now that it’s winter and my skin is drier than usual, especially with the many hours I spend sitting in front of a heater! I love that this aloe gel is free of alcohol, water, parabens, mineral oil and other harmful ingredients, but instead only uses natural extracts and natural preservatives. I’ve already started using it for a couple days as a daytime moisturiser, and so far so good! The aloe gel is a clear coloured gel (not green, yay to no articial colours!) that is lightweight with only a slight and almost non-existent scent.
I love using a good face mist thoroughout the day, and usually like to pop one in my bag or on my desk. I like to spritz some face mist on my face whenever it’s feeling a little dry and in need of an extra moisture boost. I’m keen on trying this mist out as I’ve only really used the Avene Thermal Spring Water spray and as much as I love it, I want to try something new! This Benton Honest Line of products is about presenting honest ingredients that consumers can be assured of using on their skin. This TT (Tea Tree) Mist contains Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Water instead of water, Hyaluronic Acid and other botanical extracts to hyrdate the skin and have a cooling effect. This face mist is meant to help to ‘improve rough and damaged skin from stress and pollution’.
I love a good leave-in sleeping mask as they are great for giving your skin that extra bit of hydration. That being said, I have yet to find one that I truly love (drop me a comment if you know of one, would love to know!). Cosrx is such a well loved brand by many beauty bloggers and known for their acne-prone targeted skincare lines, so hopefully this Cosrx Honey Overnight Mask will not disappoint. This mask is enriched with over 85% propolis extract and natural bees wax to provide ‘intensive hyrdation with refreshing moisture’.
Lastly, I received this exfoliating cleanser that contains Salicylic Acid (BHA) and Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil that is known to be great for those with acne prone skin. This is a creamy foam cleanser that is meant to help reduce acne breakouts and clear up your skin. It does this by removing dead skin cells, sebum and blackheads from your pores with micro bubbles created as you wash. This is a chemical exfoliator so no micro beads or any other mechanical exfoliators are used.
I tried out this cleanser for a couple days and it’s still too early to tell if it’s making a difference but my skin did feel and look a bit smoother after usage. All I can say for now is that it makes for a decent cleanser for those with oily skin types. It also has quite a strong smell probably because of the Tea Tree oil mixed with all the other ingredients; it was quite overpowering at first as I was not expecting it, so may not be great for those with a sensitive nose. The cleanser is also a bit drying and did leave my skin with a slight tight feeling. Although, this could be due to my skin being a bit drier recently in light of the seasonal weather change so might not be an issue for me when its summer.
Have you tried any of these products out, if so how did you like them? Would love to know!
Also, be on the lookup for reviews of these products later on my blog. I will be posting them up after I have tried them out for a good amount of time.
