Beauteque is a new U.S. based online skincare company that specializes in selling Korean beauty products, which is right down my alley. Some Korean brands that they sell are Missha, Holika Holika, Skinfood, Skin79, Innisfree, Etude House, and many more! I will be reviewing some products that Beauteque sent me for reviewing purposes.
- Liole Fresh Dewy Mist Makeup Fixer -
I was actually very excited to try out this makeup fixer because I've always wanted to try these types of products especially since I wear BB cream everyday. This product claims to hydrate skin and help makeup last longer. I love using this product! The fine particle spray moisturizes your skin without messing up your makeup and it's super refreshing. It is also a good size (5 inches high), not too big and not too small. It's perfect to take to school for a refreshing spritz every now and then especially if you're like me and have 5 hour classes. It's great for those who don't have time to reapply makeup during the day. I have combination skin, so this helps to hydrate my skin when it's dry. It's also a very fun product to use. I would highly recommend getting this makeup fixer! Will be using this a lot more as summer approaches (which it already has).
- Tonymoly Egg Pore Blackhead Out Oil Gel -
I am constantly on the lookout for products that remove blackheads, so I was interested in trying this product out. Tonymoly always has such cute packaging! I love how the packaging reflects the product's main ingredient, which is egg. You twist the top portion of the egg off to reveal the actual product holding the gel. This is where it gets a little tricky. After lifting the lid, you have to use your finger to get the product out. I found it was a bit difficult trying to put the lid back on and twisting the top part of the egg back on. The gel seeps out over the edge as you're trying to put the lid back on, which gets messy. Though it's very cute and a clever packaging idea, the packaging isn't user friendly and has some flaws. It's just a bit troublesome to close the egg without getting product on the outside of it.
This product claims to purify pores and control excessive sebum production to minimize pore size and improve skin texture. The purifying egg white is combined with camellia flower, bentonite, caoline and selemix to soothe skin during the purging process.
The actual product has a jelly consistency with little orange beads. The instructions say to apply the product to trouble areas and massage for 3-5 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water. I noticed after using this product that my skin texture was so much smoother. If you have really sensitive skin, try not to massage lightly or you might irritate your skin. I didn't see much of a visible difference in terms of blackhead removal, so I was a little disappointed. I think this product would work well if you used another product to open your pores or steam your face beforehand. Also, I did some research and found that this product is supposed to be used with two other egg products by Tonymoly, so maybe it's more effective if you use all 3 products. In conclusion, this product only made my skin smoother, but didn't remove any blackheads.
