It’s that time again, more samples that I used up during my trip. I actually took with a bunch to use which was great, it saved me a lot of luggage space from having to carry my usually full size products. At the same time, not good for the ones that didn’t work out for me.
SKINFOOD Gold Caviar Collagen Serum
It has subtle fragrant scent to it. Milky texture with little gold flakes in it, so cute! The gold flakes dissolve on contact with my face. I think this serum is too much for my skin. Feel like a layer of oil. It does eventually absorb but not completely, I can still feel the slight oily sensation. Even by just dabbing my face with my finger tips, the oily films sticks not my fingers. Ewww
I would not buy, this is not for me, it’s good if you have DRY skin.
SKINFOOD Blanc Pearl Caviar Serum
* skin-brightening and anti-wrinkle effects
Oh does this stuff ever smell like extremely strong sake / plum wine. Gel like texture that applies easier, but quite rich, takes quite a bit of time to full absorb. Serums tend to do that, thus I’ve never really been a fan of serums. Also makes my face feels really warm when applying it. What? Have I been inhaling too much alcohol? LOL From immediate/ first time use, I can’t say it has any noticeably brightening effect. As for anti-wrinkle, most likely a long term effect.

innisfree white tone up sleeping pack
*enriched with pure berries extracts and green complex from jeju island, white tone up brings increased clarity and brightness to skin
The most important to point out is how much I dislike the scent. It reeks of Chinese herbal medicine. Yuck! I also really dislike the texture of it because it makes me face stay a bit sticky and greasy. Does not fully absorbed and I cannot have something like that on my face when I am sleeping, makes me feel disgusting. After 2 nights, I couldn’t take anymore and stopped. Judging from that, I couldn’t really notice any brightening effects or even moisturizing, other then greasy.
Would not buy, there are much better around.

GEHWOL FUSSKRAFT Soft Feet Cream
*milk & honey for well cared feet and legs
*contains vitamin-rich avocado oil and other valuable lipids. a special deep acting hyaluron supports skin regeneration and strengthens the skin’s owndefences. together with urea, hyaluron also binds moisture in deeper skin layers and protect against callus formation.
*milk peptides and honey extract render the skin noticeably silkier and visibly smoother.
Smells delicious, milk & honey who doesn’t like? The scent will linger. Really moisturizes, I can feel the difference. My skin is much softer & smooth to the touch. It’ a little on the greasier side but not by much.
SUISSE PROGRAMME HYDRA-SOLUTION Recovery Eye Essence
Eye stuff, oh how I want to love them but they really never do anything for me. This one has hint of perfume scent, creamy texture, super moisturizing on the greasy stay on skin type but that’s really it for me. I don’t see much else happening for me.
Wouldn’t buy full size, it’s so expensive.

SKINFOOD Quinoa Rich Body Wash
*a rich body wash with quinoa extract that cleanses dry skin gently and throughly with a creamy lather.
A nice sweet rice scent, looks like any other body wash. Didn’t see any super lather but cleans nicely & makes my skin moisturized.
Wouldn’t buy full size, only cause body moisturizing during the shower isn’t that high in priority to me as it probably should be. I would use, just wouldn’t go out of my way to get it.

That concludes another samples testing round.
