Republic Of Korea Best Korean Cosmetics Award 2010 April 4, 2011

Cosmetic Mania News, one of Korea’s leading cosmetic weekly newspaper , has worked together for the past few years with TNS Korea, the oldest marketing and research consultancy in Korea to check out the year’s top cosmetics products which is loved by Korean consumers.  TNS Korea is the largest custom research firm in Korea utilizing their extensive experience in advanced research techniques in every consumer research area.

Guess who emerged as the top winner of 2010? None other than Amore Pacific ! Many of the company’s brands took the top spots in certain division. To be exact – Amore Pacific’s IOPE took most of the major awards and emerged as the overall winner of the Korean Cosmetics Award 2010.

Best Hair Care Product ( Shampoo + Conditioner ) Amore Pacific’s Ryoe 려
Best Hair Coloring Product Somang’s Beauty Credit

Wow! I am kind of baffled by the wins of Amore Pacific’s IOPE. We knew it was a famous brand in Korea – but not till this extent ! Now it makes us want to check our more products from this brand. The only thing we’ve tried is the super famous Super Vital Moist cream and it was really very moisturizing.

Another surprise here – the Best Oriental Herbal brand went to LG’s Sooryehan instead of the infamous History Of Whoo or Sulwhasoo.

I expected Amore Pacific’s Etude House and Happy Bath to win the best mascara section and also best body cleaning product because Etude House’s Dr Lash was a huuuuge hit last year and Happy Bath has been a household Korean name since… forever? Lotus Palace loves Happy Bath products.

Also expected Tony Moly to win the best eyeliner because it was also a huge hit in 2010 and it’s cheap compared to brands like Bobbi Brown charging $$$ for it. Expected to win the Best BB Cream is also Missha because Missha has been the best-seller for BB Creams every single year!

Brands to try ? Amore Pacific’s Ryoe seems interesting. It is like the Sulwhasoo for hair products. Look at their ads :

Reader’s Review : Skin Ceramics Blemish Balm Review March 27, 2011

Hope In A Blog’s Introduction

 

 

Tina was one of the 3 winners in the SkinCeramics and Beaute Derm BB Cream Giveaway ( all three were from the United States ) . She was also the only one who received the BB Cream out of the 3. The other 2 BB Creams got stolen on the way. Sad smile

 

 

Without further ado.. here is Tina’s Review on the BB Cream.

 

 

Do check out her blog : here

Tina’s Review

 

 

 

Hope In A Blog hosted a small giveaway, the prize being a sample size of Skin Ceramic BB Cream. I won on the condition of writing a review on this product. My review of this product is completely honest and all opinions are my own.

 

 

 

What it is: Skin Ceramic is a Korean brand of BB cream. Unfortunately, their website is in Korean and my Korean is not good enough to translate what I’m reading. The bottle states: “regeneration skin, wrinkle treatment, oil control, long water, long wear. This BB Cream is for your skin as ceramics.” For a full list of ingredients, click on their website here (ingredients are listed in English as well as Korean). Hope In A Blog claims it’s a higher-end BB cream but I am not able to confirm this because I don’t know the price or where to buy it.

 

 

 

Texture and color: The texture reminded me of Estee Lauder Double Wear Light and it is unlike my other BB creams. It’s thinner and not as creamy as my other BB Creams (read about my hunt for my favorite BB cream here). It has a light chemical-y paint-y kind of smell to it, typical of some liquid foundations. The smell isn’t particularly pleasant but it’s not off-putting either. The color is surprisingly not grey-based like most BB creams. It is very light and has a strong pink undertone to it.

 

 

 

My experience: I tried this twice before deciding that I wouldn’t wear it anymore. The first day I applied a light layer after I moisturized my face then set it with MAC’s Mineralized Skin Finish Natural. There was hardly any coverage, none at all actually. When I wear BB creams, I like to dab a little extra underneath my eyes to help neutralize my undereye circles and usually that works for me. With Skin Ceramic, however, the coverage was so sheer that putting extra underneath my eyes did absolutely nothing. The overall finish was okay but then I thought, maybe my MAC powder made it look better.

 

 

 

Therefore, the second day I applied just Skin Ceramic BB Cream without setting it. The color is so pink that it didn’t look good on me at all. It changed the tone of my face and it wouldn’t match my neck. Skin Ceramic adds pink color without providing any coverage whatsoever. It does oxidize enough to match my NC30 skin tone but the pink undertone really ruins the overall look. I eventually set it with MAC’s MSFN because I wanted to neutralize the pink as much as possible.

 

 

 

For reference: I wear NC 30 in MAC Studio Fix, B30 in Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, 32 in Make Up For Ever Face & Body, 127 in Make Up For Ever HD Foundation. My skin is on the lighter end of “medium” and I have yellow undertones.

 

 

 

Conclusion: I do not like this BB cream at all. I cannot speak for its wrinkle treating properties as I would have to wear this for a while but my opinion is based on its color and lack of coverage. I don’t need much coverage but this miraculously provides NO coverage but it adds color, the wrong color for me I might add. This may work for fair Caucasians who have pink undertones. I don’t personally know any Asians who have pink undertones. If you think the color would match you and if you have oily skin, I think Skin Ceramic would be good for you. My forehead is not oily at all which is the only positive thing that I can find about this BB cream. If you want a high-end BB cream, I recommend A.H.C. Intense Contour Balm. If you want a more affordable BB cream, I would recommend Skin79 Super Plus BB Cream Triple Function (hot pink) or Missha Perfect Cover.

 

 

 

Although I did not like Skin Ceramic BB Cream, I would like to thank Hope In A Blog for hosting the giveaway. Check out their blog if you’re interested in Asian skincare and beauty products.

Skin Ceramic Blemish Balm Cream no.1 & Beaute Derm Effective Blemish Balm Review February 11, 2011

Introduction


  • Skin Ceramic BB Cream

Skin regeneration, wrinkle treatment, oil control, long water, long wear , skin brightening, natural preservatives.

Skin Ceramics BB Cream recycles your damaged skin without irritating it. It acts as an anti-wrinkle, anti-pigmentation and increases your skin’s elasticity.

It improves your skin’s balance by absorbing sebum and applying moisture.


  • Beaute Derm Effective BB Cream

This BB Cream will give you various intensive effects. Soothing, cell regeneration, protecting, hydrating, and acceleration of your blood’s circulation.  It normalizes the over production of oil and covers up discoloration of the skin and skin flaws. It even evens out reddened skin. This matte BB Cream will leave your skin fresh all day.


Packaging


  • Skin Ceramic BB Cream

This BB Cream comes in black box with  shiny english words on it. The box actually looks very classy, with the Skin Ceramic brand highligted in Silver wordings.

Behind the box is the ingredient list in ENGLISH !

However, the packaging of the BB Cream itself is very simple. It uses the color of the BB Cream itself and the tube is very much like Hanskins’ BB Creams.


  • Beaute Derm Effective BB Cream

The BB Cream comes in a purple box. Nothing special about the packaging here. The ingredient list is listed in English but it is not listed in full, but features only the main ingredients. However, the ingredient list in Korean is fully listed.


Unlike the Skin Ceramic BB Cream tube which is more flat, the Beaute Derm BB Cream is more bulky and round and less refine.


Oil Control


Last picture was taken 8 hours after the 1st picture.


As you can see, the Beaute Derm’s oil control is far more superior than the Skin Ceramic’s BB Cream. The Beaute Derm BB Cream really does keep your sebum at bay and matte for a very long time! Pretty impressive!


The Skin Ceramics is more suitable for those with dry/normal skin. Definitely doesn’t control oil like described on the box itself Open-mouthed smile


The time in which the photos are taken is written on top of the Skin Ceramic’s oil blot sheet.


Texture & Coverage


Top : Beaute Derm BB Cream

Bottom : Skin Ceramics BB Cream

The Skin Ceramics BB Cream is light in texture and spreads easily. It has also less coverage than the Beaute Derm BB Cream, but it still covers pretty well. We like it’s texture more than the Beaute Derm BB.


The BeauteDerm BB Cream is thick and dense in texture. It’s coverage is also superior than the Skin Ceramics BB Cream but it is harder to apply and you may need to rub a little harder.


Our advice is to pat the BB Creams all over your face instead of applying it with your fingers to achieve a more lighter, natural look.


Color / Shade


Right : Skin Ceramics BB

Left : Beaute Derm BB


BB Cream isn’t blended properly to the skin. It’s just to give you readers an approximation on it’s colour.


The Skin Ceramics BB Cream has a slightly lighter shade compared to Beaute Derm’s BB Cream. However, both of the colour is extremely alike and it’s difference is hardly noticeable. Both of the colours are very natural and has a little pink undertone to it.


Ingredients


  • Skin Ceramics BB Cream

Both BB Creams have some similarities in their ingredients. Both of them have water, cetyl ethylhexanoate, titanium dioxide, caprylic/capric triglyceride, propylene glycol, cetyl PEG / PPG – 10 Dimethicone as their first 6 ingredients.


However, Skin Ceramics BB Cream’s ingredients is much more complex than Beaute Derm’s BB Cream.


1. Sorbitan sesquioleate

Sorbitan Sesquioleate is used in a variety of products including skin care products, skin cleansing products, moisturizers, eye makeup and other makeup, primarily as an emollient. It is added to formulas as a skin soother and moisturizer and is derived from sorbitol, a humectant.


2. Ozokerite

Ozokerite is a naturally-occurring odoriferous mineral wax or paraffin found in many localities

Ozokerite and other waxes thicken lipid (oil) portion of cosmetics and personal care products and help keep emulsions from separating into their oil and liquid components. These waxes lessen the brittleness of stick products and add strength and stability to lipsticks. These waxes also hold together the ingredients of a compressed cake.


3. Licorice Root Extract

Licorice extract containing licochalcone-A, from the roots of the plant Glycyrrhiza inflata Batalin, has inhibitory actions of testosterone 5-alpha-reductase, lipase and phospholipase A2, as well as androgen receptor antagonist which reduce sebum output. It also acts as an antimicrobial with proven action against P. acnes bacteria while also being a Super Oxide Dismutase antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory


4. Human Oligopeptide

Known as EGF ( Epidermal Growth Factor). It is composed of 53 amino acids and is one of the important growth factors in human body. We spoke of this ingredient in one of the reviews.


5. Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract

Also known as Huang Qin. It is used for its astringent, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial as well as its antioxidant properties


  • Beaute Derm Effective Blemish Balm

1. Hamamelis Virginiana

Also known as Witch Hazel. Commonly used plant extract that can have potent antioxidant properties (Sources: Phytotherapy Research, June 2002, pages 364–367; and Journal of Dermatological Science, July 1995, pages 25–34) and some anti-irritant properties (Source: Skin Pharmacology and Applied Skin Physiology, March-April 2002, pages 125–132). However, witch hazel’s high tannin content (and tannin is a potent antioxidant), can also be irritating when used repeatedly on skin because it constricts blood flow. The bark of the witch hazel plant has higher tannin content than the leaves. Steam distillation for producing witch hazel water removes the tannins, but the plant’s astringent qualities are what most believe give it benefit. Alcohol is added during the distillation process, the amount typically being 14–15%.


2. Melia Azadirachta Extract

Known as Neem trea from India. Neem Extract contains Sulfur that is essential building block of collagen, with antiseptic qualities. Aloe Leaf Juice stimulates fibroblast activity and improves the skin healing. Modern science has identified hundreds of active compounds, from various parts of the plant with pesticidal, nematicidal, fungicidal, bactericidal, anti inflammatory, anti-tumor and other properties. These have found applications in the pesticide, medical, healthcare and cosmetic industries all over the world.

Environmentally, Neem is known as a natural air purifier, keeping the oxygen level in the atmosphere balanced. Neem’s ability to withstand extreme heat and water pollution is well known. It also helps to improve fertility of the soil and to rehabilitate degraded wastelands.
Women have used the healing properties of Neem for centuries in India as part of a herbal beauty tradition. A bath with a decoction of Neem leaves keeps skin supple and healthy. Face packs with Neem leaf powder offer emollient and anti aging action. The antiseptic properties of Neem leaf extract help in controlling acne.


3. Grapefruit Extract

Grapefruit seed extract is being used for many types of external skin conditions from known or unknown causes (fungal, parasites, bacteria, viral, etc). Grapefruit seed extract is a very good facial cleanser for general cleaning of oily skin and is very helpful in fighting acne infections. Used as preservatives in cosmetics.

Read this interesting article of the use of Grapefruit Extract as preservatives : here


Conclusion


We really like both BB Creams. You can tell that these BB Creams are of higher quality and that shows on it’s pricing.


How do you pick between the two?


If you have dry to normal skin, go for the Skin Ceramics BB Cream. It has a very nice light creamy texture which slides easily on your face. It is also packed with anti-aging, whitening, soothing ingredients and is paraben free.


If you want an excellent oil control BB Cream. Beaute Derm BB Cream is really one of the top! It really does help keep your skin matte for 5-6 hours and provides a good coverage. However it’s texture is thicker and more dense.


However, the Beaute Derm BB Cream also comes in another version for dry skin. Therefore you’ll have a hard time choosing between the Skin Ceramics and the Beaute Derm BB Cream for dry skin.

BB Creams Not Enough to protect skin from the harmful sun January 18, 2011

 

 

Today we read an article on a Korean site that was rather interesting.

 


74% of Korean Women uses BB Creams as they are convenient and loved for it’s simplicity.


However, many BB Creams (even those with higher SPF) have been deceiving consumers as they are marketed as an all-in-one, therefore sunscreen can be skipped.


This marketing ploy is a big mistake that can have a negative impact on the skin. BB Creams cannot be Sunscreen replacement as BB Creams alone are not effective in blocking ultraviolet light.


Therefore, girls, if you are scared of the sun, make sure you apply your BB Creams BEFORE applying your sunscreen! Smile

Sunny Side VIP BB Cream Review 써니싸이드VIP비비크림 December 9, 2010

T1jm4BXd0mXXawQbU._081440

 

Introduction

Sunny Side VIP Blemish Balm is also considered one the King of BB Creams. It is VERY well known in Korea for being a very good BB Cream and has a very good reputation among BB Cream lovers – and they have won a few new fans – everyone here at Hope In The Blog loves this BB Cream!

A short introduction from the company :

VIP Sunny Side BB Cream actively defends skin damage and loss of elasticity of the skin’s tissue. It also calms redness of the skin without irritating it, and moisturizes the skin while repairing it.

alt

Packaging

alt

Like most high end BB Creams like Alexander Kimsco, Dr Schrammek, Forensco, A.H.C who have the ugliest BB Cream packaging around, Sunny Side VIP is also one of them. Somehow there is no sense of luxury in the packaging of the BB Cream, nor does it look like one! This is a bit sad as most luxury high end products like the History Of Whoo / Sulwhasoo have very nice posh packaging.


This BB Cream comes in a simple white tube and contains 50ml. There is also a 15ml mini tube Smile

Color / Texture

More color comparison with the other BB Kings such as Alexander Kimsco etc , look at the Alexander Kimsco review : here!


Loves the bright colour of this BB Cream and also it’s rather light texture – makes it easy to deal with!


alt


As seen below, the texture is rather light, which makes applying easy!


alt


The BB Cream (SS) is being compared to the Elisha Coy Always Nuddy (ES) and the Crazy Monkey Organic BB Cream (CR). AS you can see, the BB Cream has a bright color and has a pink undertone to it! Grey undertone is almost not noticeable at all ! We really like the color of this BB Cream – it brightens up the skin instantly compared to the majority of BB Creams which are greyish and have a dull undertone. This BB Cream definitely lives up to its expectations!


alt

alt

alt


The BeauteDerm BB (BD)  also has quite a similar color with the SunnySide (SS) . The Elisha Coy Always Nuddy (EC)  is darker compared to the other two.


alt

alt

Ingredients

As this is an expensive BB Cream, the ingredient list are also packed with high end ingredients :

99


1) EGF ( Epidermal Growth Factor ) – That EGF promotes epithelial cell proliferation and collagen synthesis of dermal fibroblasts to promote the proliferation of cell growth in damaged skin wound to minimize scarring of the skin, helps to maintain order in the organization. However it has also its fair share of controversies. There is research showing it to be helpful for wound and burn healing. There is also research showing that its effect is no different from that of a placebo and that it may not be effective at all. Read more here



alt


2) B-Glucan – known as Beta Glucan – Polysaccharide, meaning that it is a sugar (e.g., starch and cellulose) that can be derived from yeast. It has some antioxidant properties and is a strong anti-inflammatory agent. They are known to have the ability to activate the immune system. Also, it has been found that B-Glucans can prevent infection and kills pathogenic bacteria.


alt


3) Acetyl Hexapeptide – known as Argireline which has been compared to snake venom. It is a synthetically derived peptide that is being used in a wide range of skin care and makeup products, especially those claiming to have a muscle-relaxing effect similar to Botox injections. These claims typically have to do with relaxing muscle contractions when making facial expressions, thus reducing the appearance of expression lines. Read more here


alt


4) Bisabol – an be extracted from chamomile or derived synthetically. It is an anti-irritant. Calms and relieve skin irritation.


alt

5) Allantoin – Allantoin is present in botanical extracts of the comfrey plant/sugar beet. Skin active ingredient with keratolytic, moisturizing, soothing, anti-irritant properties, promotes the renewal of epidermal cell and accelerates wounds healing.


alt


6) Morus Alba Leaf Extract – known as white mulberry plant. Quantitative Analysis of Rutin, a Flavonoid Compound in the Leaves of m Morus alba: Rutin showed to be an inhibitory of melanoma (melanin) growth, anti-tyrosinase and antioxidant suggesting a potential for dietary supplements or cosmetic applications, therefore giving the skin a whitening effect.


alt


7) Deep Ocean Water – is the name for cold, salty water found deep below the surface of Earth’s oceans. Ocean water differs in temperature and salinity, with warm, relatively non-salty water found at the surface, and very cold salty water found deeper below the surface layer. It is rich in minerals.


alt


8) Symwhite 377 – new, highly effective active agent for the rapidly growing market for skin lighteners. SymWhite® 377 (INCI: phenylethyl resorcinol) is an excellent antioxidant that is also highly effective in influencing the formation of pigmentation. SymWhite® 377 thus succeeds where other skin-bleaching agents fail by eliminating the side-effects and disadvantages – such as skin irritation and poor performance – associated with these preparations. In a direct comparison with ß-arbutin (also included in the ingredient here!) , for instance, SymWhite® 377 was shown to be over one hundred times as effective at lightening hair, and when tested in vivo on skin that had not been exposed to light, 0.5% SymWhite® 377 proved to be more effective than 1.0% kojic acid. A concentration of between 0.1 and 0.5% is recommended. Read about it here


Oil Control

Oil control is rather good here – almost comparable with the Alexander Kimsco , i have no complains! Refer to the Alexander Kimsco Review for oil control comparison with other BB Creams. Time is recorded on the right of the Blotting paper!


alt alt

alt alt

alt alt

Coverage

Coverage is pretty decent for a BB Cream. Very sheer though.  Managed to lighten up my horrible acne scars! Before – After

alt

alt

It does give a slight glow, dewy finish, which looks very natural! Left side has a dewy glow to it after BB Cream was applied, right side nothing was applied!

alt alt

Conclusion

Priced at 120,000 Korean Won for 50ml (slightly cheaper than Alexander Kimsco) , this BB Cream performs better than the Alexander Kimsco BB Cream. Infact, we loved this BB Cream so much and it has quickly became a favourite.


Would we purchase the full size tube? Definitely. If we were going to be stranded in an island and allowed to bring only ONE BB Cream – this would be it ! We loved everything from the color, undertone, texture of it, the dewy glow it gives. Not to mention its super ingredients! Should you purchase it? If you have some extra money and have always wanted to invest in a luxury BB Cream – why not? Share your experience here if you have tried this BB Cream.


Funny why this BB Cream isn’t famous outside Korea because it really is a very good BB Cream. The reason is probably because there isn’t any distributors outside Korea, and also because of its steep price!


Results on the Skin Moisture Analyser : Before – After

alt alt

Results on the Skin Analyser : Before – After

alt alt


The downside of this BB Cream is that there isn’t any SPF included! If not, this would be the holy grail of all BB Creams!


Where to buy?

Purchase this on Gmarket on Sunnyside’s Official Gmarket Page!


There are a few sellers on Gmarket : here, here


There is currently a promotion for Sunny Side VIP BB Cream – 190,000 Wons if you buy 2 tubes of 50ml.
