The collection comprises of fifteen different products which are made with gentle ingredients like ๐๐š๐ง๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ง๐จ๐ฌ๐ข๐๐ž to strengthen skin protein, ๐Œ๐š๐๐ž๐œ๐š๐ฌ๐ฌ๐จ๐ฌ๐ข๐๐ž to help relieve redness, ๐†๐ซ๐ž๐ž๐ง ๐“๐ž๐š ๐‹๐ž๐š๐Ÿ ๐„๐ฑ๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ to offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The line doesnโ€™t contain dyes, essential oils, or fragrances making it the perfect solution to restore skin barrier to its healthy balance. I have tried five products from the collection so far. Let me share my thoughts on them:โฃ ETUDE - Soon Jung, pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser
With a pH level of 6.5, this cleanser claims to reduce friction on the skin, leaving it feeling healthy and clean.โฃ โฃ This is a simple effective product. The foam gently cleans and soothes, without irritating or drying out sensitive skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean. I think it'll be a lil drying for those who have dry skin. โฃ โฃ ETUDE - SoonJung pH 5.5 Relief Toner
Formulated with medicinal scutellaria baicalensis (chinese skullcap) root extract, this toner relieves, revitalizes, and soothes the skin making it perfect for warmer weathers. โฃ โฃ This toner is just like water. To be honest, I did not notice any changes using this. But if youโ€™re someone who likes doing the 7 skin method, you may want to try this. Itโ€™s VERY gentle and non-irritating - has glycerin, soothing colloidal oatmeal, and various anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory antioxidants. I think it will be nice to use on warm summer days, a good way to ensure mid-day hydration when you feel your skin needs it. โฃ โฃ ETUDE - Soon Jung 10-Free Moist Emulsion
This emulsion has a pH level of 6 which helps target dry or stressed skin.โฃ โฃ I loved this emulsion. It is so lightweight and absorbs very quickly, perfect to pat on a damp face before doing the rest of your routine. This leaves skin soft but almost with no product feel. It is not very occlusive but I think this alone can be enough in the summer for oily skin. โฃ ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream
This contains dust defense which strengthens skin resistance and protects it from any harmful external particles. It is also formulated with shea butter and oil complex to deliver moisture to skin.โฃ โฃ I expected this cream to be very thick in consistency but surprisingly, it was not. My oily skin loved it. This spreads well and absorbs in 10 minutes, does not feel heavy at all, but seals in every ingredients you put on skin nicely. Overall, a great product to add moisture without risking irritation or flaring breakouts. โฃ ETUDE - SoonJung Cica Balm-Panthensoside 5
This gel-type balm is formulated with dust defense and panthenoside to restore and regenerate healthy skin.โฃ โฃ This, again, is not as thick as I expected it to be. But I loved it! I enjoyed using this as an eye cream and a moisturizer around my mouth area which becomes dry sometimes. It feels very smooth, just melts on the skin and is non-greasy. This gives an immediate soothing effect. This will work great for people with dry skin or for those who donโ€™t want a thick ointment like petrolatum to use on dry patches. โฃ Overall, I really liked the products Iโ€™ve tried so far. I have received about 5 trial boxes, I actually havenโ€™t finished them all, but iโ€™m most likely gonna buy some full sizes afterward. I can highly recommend this line. Very sensitive skin-friendly and offer great value for the quality.

Soon Jung line
Hi! This is my first post. I would like to talk about my favorite line. Itโ€™s a kbeauty brand from etude house! I will talk about every product Iโ€™ve tried from them. Skin type: Combination-dry sensitive acne prone ETUDE - Soon Jung, pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser I think this is a good cleanser. But this was just to stripping for me. Maybe because of the Ph of 6.5 is high? I donโ€™t really know. If you have oily skin this would be great as it has great ingredients list and is free of irritation ingredients.They do have a 5.5 foam cleanser which I love because it is so gentle for acne. ETUDE - SoonJung pH 5.5 Relief Toner Love this. So light weight but soothing. Great simple ingredients. I recommend for any skin types. ETUDE - Soon Jung, 2x Barrier Intensive Cream I love this as well. It is very moisturizing but no pore clog and very simple. I bought all of these at yestyle because they ship internationally. Iโ€™m pretty sure they ship to pretty much every country so check them out!

PM Routine for Dry Sensitive Skin ๐ŸŒ™๐ŸŒต
This is my boyfriendโ€™s PM skincare routine (created by me! ๐Ÿ˜). Before we met 3 years ago, he never moisturized or used sunscreen, and washed his face with body wash. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ As you can imagine, his skin used to be hella dry and dehydrated, and his skin barrier was damaged. He has very dry, sensitive skin, isnโ€™t acne-prone, and likes simple and quick routines so that he doesnโ€™t have to spend too much time getting ready. ๐ŸŒ™ PM Routine 1. BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original This is a simple and affordable cleansing balm that he uses to remove sunscreen at the end of the day. It doesnโ€™t irritate his eyes or leave an oily film behind. 2. ETUDE - Soon Jung, pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser Heโ€™s tried other simple cleansers such as the Cetaphil face wash and the Innisfree Blueberry Cleanser, and all of them have made his face feel tight and dry. This product does not, it is a gentle foaming cleanser that doesnโ€™t make his skin feel stripped. 3. THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum He uses this product on a damp face to hydrate his skin. My skin is sensitive to hylauronic acid, but my boyfriend doesnโ€™t have any issues with HA serums. 4. ETUDE - Soon Jung, 2x Barrier Intensive Cream This moisturizer has skin repairing ingredients like Madecassoside and is great for his dry skin. Itโ€™s a little too occlusive/greasy on me, but his skin absorbs it well. 5. timeless SKIN CARE - Squalane Oil 100% Pure His skin is so dry that moisturizer alone is often not occlusive enough to last throughout the night. To supplement, he pats a few drops of squalane oil into his face as the last step of his routine. He reports that when he uses squalane oil, his face doesnโ€™t feel tight and dry when he wakes up the next morning. Hope this helps those of you with a similar skin type as his! ๐Ÿ˜Š His AM routine is also posted on my page!

Healed in under 1 week! How I prevented scarring
๐ŸบSo I have a 9 month old Siberian Husky, heโ€™s got way too much energy for me sometimes. He totally booped me in the eye with his teeth & basically bit my eyelid. I was honestly so f***ing worried, eye skin is so sensitive & my skin scar easily, even from bruising. So how did I get this back to normal in 6 days? First things first... Regularly applying (yup, multiple times a day) SUNSCREEN will help prevent hyperpigmentation. โ˜€๏ธWhen you get a cut or bruise, even a baby one, your skin barrier has been compromised. Even the healthiest skin barrier will not protect you from UV rays whatsoever & any new skin growing after an abrasion is extremely susceptible to UV damage, regardless of your skin tone! Iโ€™m super pale, but even with skin that doesnโ€™t burn easily, newly generated skin tissue will become darker if you donโ€™t use an SPF to protect it. I included a pic of a scratch I got from my dog several months ago, where I totally didnโ€™t protect it from the sun. I can be lazy about body sunscreen & this proved to me that almost any broken skin will scar if it gets sun. I used: KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 But honestly any sunscreen you like with a decent SPF is key for scar prevention. Reapply & reapply! I love this formula because itโ€™s so moisturizing! Full review in a previous post. Keeping your skin hydrated & moisturized is super important too, you want to give your skin nourishment while it heals. Which brings me to the second most important thing. ๐ŸŒA repair serum: Beauty of Joseon - Repair Serum : Ginseng+Snail Mucin I have fully fallen in love with Snail Mucin after this serum! Because Snail Mucin is a stress-induced excretion, it's comprised of ingredients meant to repair or protect from injury. These include growth factors, which work by triggering the growth of new skin cells & new collagen. This particular serum is really affordable-$17. It contains over 3% Snail Mucin & itโ€™s over 63% Ginseng extract, also amazing for skin repair & evening tone. Allantoin is another component in the secretion; healing properties, calms irritation & stimulates cell regeneration Also fragrance/alcohol free! Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum Limited Edition This is also packed with Ginseng & other reparative botanical extracts. This really helps me retain moisture in my skin, I use it 2x a day & have noticed generally brighter & clearer skin in the last few months. You use this after cleansing or toning, before other serums. TATCHA - The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream After a couple days I added this. ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream Great for sensitive skin & has vitamin E. I alternated between this &: TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream Also used this: Beauty of Joseon - Glow Serum : Propolis+Niacinamide Almost 60% Propolis + 2% Niacinamide

These products improved my acne in 3 weeks
Since March 2020 I started breaking out really bad. It got even worse in September and I think it was due to over exfoliation and irritated skin. I started using these products below 3 weeks ago and as you can see from the pictures my acne has noticeably improved. Most of the acne has subsided. The acne on my temples are almost non existent and just some redness remains. Also the redness on my cheeks are fading and are smaller in size. Current routine: Toner: ETUDE - Etude House SoonJung pH 5.5 Relief Toner Serums: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Treatment: AZCLEAR - Medicated Lotion Creams: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo (+) and ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream Retinol: DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream Really happy with these products right now! I will continue using these products and might add Vitamin C as well. I will post another update in another 3 weeks, stay tuned ๐Ÿ™ˆ

This is the Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream by Youth to the People. It is meant to soothe skin and hydrate skin. I just got this recently and I already love this! Itโ€™s buttery and my skin drinks this right up. My skin has been really irritated and this is helping and doesnโ€™t break me out. The mushroom in this is really soothing but it doesnโ€™t have a real smell at all! I also love that they are vegan and this is a glass container. So cool! Everything this brand makes is amazing. They truly seem to not be able to do any wrong. Five stars โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi

Skincare products for allergy-prone skin-Round 1
I have combination-dry skin in spring and summer, and dry skin in fall and winter. I also have allergy-prone skin with bumps. Let me share some skin care products that I've used before. Facial Cleanser: Curรฉl - Foaming Facial Wash It's a low pH face cleanser that protects the skin's moisture barrier while soothing dry-sensitive skin. It creates a dense foamy lather which cleanses well enough for me when I don't wear makeup during my allergy flares. Avรจne - Tolรฉrance Extrรชme Cleansing Lotion It's alcohol-free, preservative-free, and scent-free. It has a soft texture which spreads easily and I can apply just a little amount to my entire face. After that, I'll use a tissue soaked in Avรจne Thermal Spring Water to wipe off any leftover lotion. I normally use this cleansing lotion when I have severe allergies.  Toner: HABA Pure Roots G-Lotion It stabilizes the skin if we use it regularly. I will always use G-lotion as a base before using other toners. Facial Cream: Avรจne - Tolรฉrance Extrรชme Cream It's alcohol-free and scent-free. I will apply a thick layer of this cream on my face whenever I have a severe allergy.

A great summer moisturizer for oily skin!
A great summer moisturizer for oily skin!
a.My skin type is combination, often with hormonal acne during parts of the month. I generally have pretty balanced skin! b.This product is an oil-free moisturizer meant for oilier skin types, and it mattifies the skin and prepares it for sunscreen! c.The texture is so beautiful! Itโ€™s a creamy gel that sinks in really quickly and definitely mattifies the skin. It does not leave a dewy finish at all. The packaging and color of the product are beautiful, just as all Farmacy products! d.Sometimes my skin can feel a little dry after using this so I tend to use it on days when I feel oily or know Iโ€™m going to follow with a dewy sunscreen. I also only use this in the mornings after my vitamin c serum, since I prefer heavier moisturizers for my nighttime routine! e.I would recommend this to my friends with oily or combination skin! I would rate this product a 4/5 stars because the smell can be offputting to some people (all natural ingredients), and it is a bit expensive. However, I believe the cream does exactly what it says it will, so itโ€™s a solid choice for the summer months too!

Moisturizer for Oily Skin: Coconut Water by FAB
Moisturizer for Oily Skin: Coconut Water by FAB
FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream Moisturizer for oily skin: This cream is a gel cream meant for oily skin. Here is how FAB describes it: oil-free, refreshingly light water cream infused with skin nourishing coconut water that hydrocharges your skin with a burst of electrolyte-rich moisture. The electrolytes and coconut water to moisturize the skin. This is interesting because it's made for oily skin and suitable for sensitive skin as well as it's fragrance free. I got this cream because I liked that it was natural and smelled of coconut without added fragrance. My skin is what I would call aging oily skin - definitely some dry spots, but my t zone is very oily so in the summer especially I go for lighter gel creams like this. If you look at the texture shot you will see this is a gel cream with a white texture. It is absorbed quickly. There are a lot of silicones in it which probably helps the texture but might make some people break out. My experience- this cream dried my skin. It absorbed fast and worked well with makeup, but this would only work for someone with very oily skin. It left my cheeks feeling dry and tight. I could see myself using this in a humid climate or the summer, but definitely not in the winter. It didn't make me breakout or cause any adverse reactions aside from my skin feeling tight. This is definitely not a night cream. This retails for $34 for a large 1.7 ounce jar. I could see the jar lasting a while so this is an ok price for a mid-tier moisturizer. I give this 3/5 stars. I wouldn't rebuy it because I felt like it was too drying for my skin. If you like gel moisturizers, this might be a good bet but it wasn't for me personally.

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream I live the ingredients in this moisturizer and am a fan of youth to the people anyways! The texture is a lightweight gel watery cream, very cooling on the skin! My combination skin loves this and it truly feels amazing but also lightweight! I would prefer this in summer though since I love their adaptogens cream for this time of the year! I would possibly repurchase it for summer and I think this is perfect for my sensitive, acne prone combo skin! Probably also works well for oily types, wouldnโ€™t recommend for dry skin!
