- Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream
- Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack
- B.LAB PHA Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil
- Isntree Real Mugwort Clay Mask
- Purito BHA Dead Skin Moisture Gel
Now on to the reviews… 🙂
Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream:
This eye cream smells like herbs, which made me curious to see what’s in this eye cream. So I looked up the ingredients of the eye cream. Lo and behold, the first ingredient is Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract. No wonder why it smelled so herby. Other ingredients that stood out to me include petrolatum, dimethicone, shea butter, licorice, sodium hyaluronate, and lactobacillus/ginseng root ferment filtrate. The texture of the eye cream is soft, silky, and creamy. It glides over the under eyes nicely and smoothly. It also blends into the skin very well with little effort. It reminds me of Benton Fermentation Eye Cream. The texture is very similar. And I really liked using Pyunkang Eye Cream due to the similarities they have. I think I’m falling in love with this eye cream…kinda…the herbal scent throws me off every time I use it…so…
Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack:
I’ve used Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack before <<< Go here to read my previous review on it! My thoughts on this sleeping pack hasn’t changed. I didn’t use it on my facial skin. I know what’s going to happen. And that is breakouts! I don’t want that, lol. I ended up using the sleeping pack on my body instead. It’s rich and creamy like it was before. It’s also moisturizing and helps to seal in moisture. Great for the moisture barrier. Too bad it’s incompatible with my skin type. I’ve moved on to other sleeping packs and moisturizers that work better for me. I’ve also finished my tubes of Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack and haven’t purchased a new one since. Honestly, I’ve moved on to better skin care products that work for my skin. This isn’t a bad product if it works for you. Everyone’s skin is different.
B.LAB PHA Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil:
This is a very lightweight, elegant oil. It feels so soft and lovely. The oil moves over my facial skin smoothly and feels moisturizing on the skin. It’s very different compared to the cleansing oils I have used. I’m glad I had a chance to try this cleansing oil out. I really liked the way it felt on my skin! Now let’s look at the ingredients! It contains isopropyl myristate, which is comedogenic. BUT! The cleansing oil isn’t left on the skin for too long. Just enough to remove sebum, oil, dirt, makeup. Speaking of makeup, it removed my waterproof eye makeup perfectly! No tugging involved! My makeup came off. 😀 This cleansing oil also contains jojoba seed oil, grape seed oil, honey extract, and tea tree oil, to name a few. No wonder why I liked it. It contains tea tree!! Even though it’s the last ingredient on the list, lol. My experience with B.LAB PHA Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil was wonderful. I enjoyed every minute of it. I’m tempted to purchase the full-sized bottle now.
Isntree Real Mugwort Clay Mask:
This mask is green in color and has tiny little specs of exfoliating mugwort leaf powder in it. It didn’t feel rough or abrasive on the skin. I didn’t use it to exfoliate my face. I applied the mask as is. Just spread the product all over my facial skin and let it sit. It sticks to the skin pretty much instantly. I couldn’t move the mask around anyways, lol. The mask feels lightweight and has an herb smell to it. I didn’t care for the smell of the mask. It’s whatever. I was more curious about what it could do for my skin. This mask contains kaolin and bentonite, which is very good for oily skin. It absorbs excess oil. The instructions says to leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes. I left it on for 10 minutes. After I rinsed the mask off, my skin didn’t feel super dry like I thought it would. I use other clay masks that dry out my skin a bit too much. This one didn’t. It absorbed the oilies on my facial skin and left my skin feeling clean. Not dry and taut. So the sample size was one application. I thought it was an enjoyable experience. Not sure if I would purchase it because I don’t really need a clay mask right now. I have plenty of other products I have to finish up first. This one was OK from this experience. 🙂
Purito BHA Dead Skin Moisture Gel:
Yay! A BHA product to try! This product is a gel. It absorbed into my skin so quick! It literally vanished into my skin when I applied it to my skin. In an instant it disappeared into my skin. WOW. I’m impressed with the absorption! So this product contains, looking at the ingredients, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, betaine salicylate, sodium hyaluronate, and tea tree oil (loooveeee! my fave!!). That’s not the full ingredients list, but that’s what stood out to me the most. It has TEA TREE!! Even though it’s at the end of the ingredient list. It does contain BHA but a weaker form of salicylic acid. Overall, the ingredients look pretty good. I’m not sure how effective it is. The sample was just a tiny pouch. I used it 1-2 times and my skin didn’t break out either time. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized but not oily or greasy. This is something I would like to try again. I must now! lol. I’ve been trying to find a good BHA product and this one also contains tea tree.
Whew!! Those are my thoughts on these samples. So, it looks like it’s 2/5 that I really liked! 🙂

Review: Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack
Here’s my review on Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack! I’ve been using it for 9 months. 🙂 When I first purchased it, I was searching for a nourishing, moisturizing facial moisturizer. My skin was super dry from acne treatments. I needed something that would deeply moisturize and repair my moisture barrier. Everything I was using didn’t work. I needed something quick. Something that truly works. That’s when I found Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack. It contains ceramide and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and strengthen the skin barrier. Supposedly locks in moisture overnight for a more supple and plump skin the next morning (as the product states). And super centella complex to soothe and calm the skin. Hmm, interesting. Well, that sounds perfect for my skin condition! Also, this Purito product is vegan and a cruelty-free skin care product. After 9 months of using Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack, here are my thoughts on it!
This sleeping pack is a cream that is soft and thick in consistency. When applied to the facial skin, it feels very soothing and moisturizing. My skin instantly felt moisturized and protected. I tried using it in the morning since I loved how it moisturized my skin at night, but that didn’t work. It felt too rich and heavy. Don’t get me wrong, it felt very moisturizing, and I liked the way it made my skin feel. But my skin wasn’t having it. My skin couldn’t handle how intensely it moisturized my skin. It’s too heavy for daytime (for me, at least). This product can be used during the day if your skin can handle it. Mine just didn’t like it. I stopped using it during the day and stuck to using it only at night. So this sleeping pack did an amazing job at repairing my moisture barrier from excessive dryness and sealing in moisture. I really liked the results. But after 2 months of using it, I started to notice cystic acne and lots of closed comedones. I really didn’t think it was the sleeping pack until I stopped using it. The acne went away. Instead of using it on my face, I started using it on my body. It works great as a hand cream! It feels rich and creamy. Very moisturizing. My hands love it! This product wasn’t a total waste. It’s useful for something. 🙂 After a few months went by, I tried to use it on my facial skin again to combat dry skin. Maybe it was a fluke that this sleeping pack breaks me out. Nope, it’s true, it does break me out, lol. I stopped using it immediately on my face, and my skin cleared up. Yeah, I gave it another chance. It didn’t work the second time around, haha. Oh well. I continued to use the product on my body. It seems to work better for that. I guess this cream provides too much moisture for my skin type (face).
This is what Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack looks like. It’s creamy and feels very rich. The texture of this cream is very nice. It extremely moisturizing, and it definitely gets rid of dry skin quick!
Pros & Cons
- Repairs moisture barrier
- Great at sealing in moisture
- Contains ceramide and hyaluronic acid
- Too heavy for acne-prone skin, oily skin type
- Breakouts (cystic acne, closed comedones)
- Feels sticky
This sleeping pack isn’t good for my face, but it works very well on my body. I did purchase it specifically for my face, but that’s okay. I can use it on my body. It does a great job at moisturizing my neck (my skin is so dry here!!), hands, and feet. If I have dry patches of skin on my body, I’ll just apply some of this cream on and voila! The dry skin vanishes. It’s really good at keeping dry, flaky skin away. Works each and every time. So this is something I would purchase again for other purposes other than my face, since it breaks me out. It gives me pretty bad acne. It’s the type of product that would be beneficial during the winter months when my skin gets dry and itchy. I think I’m going to keep it around. I like it. If you’re not prone to breakouts, this sleeping could work for you. I think it’s a good product, and I’m on my second tube. I’m just not going to use it on my face.
