I’ve used The INKEY List Niacinamide Serum for months. I only have a little bit of product left, so I’m almost done with it. Does that mean I like it? No, not really. I used this serum consistently every day in the morning and night along with my other skin care products. Weeks ago, I’ve eliminated a lot of products due to my skin becoming congested, and I noticed tons of closed comedones. Just a few days ago, I reintroduced this serum back into my skin care routine to see if it’s compatible with my skin or not. The first day (used it in the morning and night), it went well (no breakouts). I didn’t notice a reduction in oil and redness though. I have very oily skin, by the way. The second day, I noticed an increase in acne. Sore whiteheads all over my chin and jawline, the side of my face. BLACKHEADS!! I hardly ever get blackheads! My skin felt and looked more oily too. The serum is supposed to help with excess oil, but it made my skin oily. Hmmm. This is why it is important to do a patch test first. Or, at least introduce skin care products into a routine slowly. Since I know that The INKEY List Niacinamide Serum doesn’t work for me, it’s going out! This serum sucks. I wouldnt recommend it. Didn’t do anything for my acne but gave me MORE acne!!

Review: Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch
Sep. 20, 2019Leave a comment
I purchased Hydrogel Eye Patches. 🙂 I’ve used some from elf Cosmetics but wanted to venture out. I’ll do a review on the ones from elf soon. The ones shown here are called Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch. More about the Hydrogel Eye Patches below.
- Daily treatment masks that de-puff and brighten tired eyes
- Delivers rich hydration and soothing effects
- Helps reduce redness, dark circles, and inflammation around the eye area
- Suitable for all skin types
- 60 individually wrapped patches per pack for 30 applications
The product comes with a mini scooper. It’s sealed.
The Hydrogel Eye Patches are rosy/pink in color and moistened in a liquid gel serum. Here’s my review on them.
I’ve been using these Hydrogel Eye Patches every night. Sometimes I use them in the morning too when my eyes appear a little bit more tired than usual. The container contains 30 applictions (total of 60). Make sure to have a hold on these babies when you take them out of the container. They are slippery to touch. I lost one. 🙁 It slipped out of my hands. These eye patches do help reduce puffy eyes and calm tired eyes. I love that. I haven’t noticed much with dark under eye circles, but I will continue to use them and see what happens. If you’re looking for eye patches that provide a surge of moisture, this isn’t it. I would rank the moisture level a 2 out of 5. They are not drying though. I’ll use the rest of them, but I don’t think I will purchase this one in particular again. There are a lot of choices out there, and I prefer skin care products for the eye area to be on the very hydrating side of the spectrum.
