Review: Yadah Anti-T mist and La Roche-Posay Serozinc. Mists for oily/acne prone skin

These are my very first two mists ever and I like them, but not a lot....

I've wanted to try skin mists  for some time, so I searched on eBay and came across several. One of the cheapest was by the Korean brand Yadah. The product is called Anti-T Mist  and for 80ml I paid £6.

I was attracted to this mist because one of the main ingredients is Salicylic acid which unclogs the pores and keeps them oil free. This product promises to soothe acne prone skin, balance the skin's pH and control excess sebum. And I found it moisturizing, soothing,  refreshing, but I  did not notice any oil control.

When I first tried this Anti-T mist, England was experiencing some unusually warm weather so using it felt very refreshing on my skin. Unfortunately it is not a very fine mist, so immediately after I spray it, it makes my skin a bit wet.  But interestingly enough, it absorbs super quickly. That might be due to the micro particle technology used which allows for the product to be absorbed evenly.

I can't make up my mind if it has flowery or herby scent. In any case, even though the scent is barely there and it doesn't linger-  it actually leaves an invigorating impression. 

I didn't have any breakouts when I started using this mist so I can't comment on how well it soothes blemishes.  Similarly to other Korean products, this mist is free of bad ingredients. The bottle is 80ml and even though I spray my skin several times each day, I still have a lot left. I will most likely not repurchase because I would like to try other mists.

The second mist I purchased is La Roche-Posay's Serozinc for £8 from Boots. This is a super fine mist which doesn't get my skin wet like the Anti-T mist by Yadah. While the Yadah mist feels refreshing and invigorating, the Serozinc feels refreshing and calming on the skin.

The product promises to reduce oiliness and to mattify the skin for a shine-free finish, but apart from feeling lovely on my skin, sadly I have not noticed any mattifying powers.

It has no scent, it is hypoallergenic and it contains the brand's unique Thermal Spring Water which is said to purify and soothe acne prone skin. I didn't have any blemishes before or while using this mist. Therefore I can't comment on whether it helps calm blemishes. I would most likely not repurchase because I would like to try other mists.  

In short, both mists feel refreshing on the skin. The Anti-T mist is a bit more moisturizing than the Serozinc. The Anti-T mist is invigorating while the Serozinc is calming. Both mists have good, skin loving ingredients. But I am not very impressed. I will carry on trying other mists :-)

Have you tried any interesting mists? Let me know in the comments below.

Till next time, Milu

Galactomyces & Bifidalacto Complex products+ Several UPDATES

Did I like using Manyo Factory Galactomyces niacin?

No. I will not repurchase Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin again.

UPDATE:31/08/17 It has been 7 months since I wrote this post and in that time I've learnt that Niacin is a very well researched skin loving ingredient. I will be purchasing products containing Niacin :-) and hoping it will "shrink" my pores. 

UPDATE:28/11/2017 As mentioned in my previous update, I wanted to try a Niacin product and I chose Dr.Troub Skin Returning Niaten serum with 10% Niacinamide. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and so far so good. I think my pores look more refined, but it could be my wishful thinking that is tricking my eyes. Sadly, this product is only 30ml and at almost £20, I would not be repurchasing it. I hear that The Ordinary have a nice Niacinamide serum and cheaper.

Observations about applying the product and how it felt on the skin

Applying it (Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin) felt like applying water. No scent, no colour,…

Best calming cream for acne prone skin- Sulwhasoo Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules review

I first heard about the Sulwhasoo range from one of my favourite Youtubers- Lili. Her blog title is I am a beauty junky and that is also the name of her YouTube channel. I don't remember her reviewing the Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules but when I researched several Sulwhasoo products she talked about, I found a couple of reviews on Herblinic and was intrigued enough to order samples from Ebay.  I bought 30 samples and they lasted me 15 days ( using them day and night).

From the very first application, my skin was nourished like never before. I could tell that this was one amazing product.

This honey like cream/serum is apparently packed with medicinal herbs which are said to  help nourish and  repair damaged skin. It smells herby and to me that scent is calming. It looks like honey but it spreads easily and little goes a long way. The application can be a bit sticky, but I don't mind that. One sample is enough for my face and neck.

After I used the first 30 samples, my skin…

Review: Cosrx BHA Blackhead power liquid and AHA whitehead power liquid

Update 6th July 2017: The post you will read below was written in January 2017. At the time my experience with Cosrx BHA and AHA was not positive. But months later, I went back to trying these products with great results. To read my updates click on this link and that will take you to my post "Using the previously disliked Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid again? " which I published in May 2017.

For years I've been using Skin Doctors Gamma hydroxy cream and I've been pretty happy with it. It is a skin resurfacing cream containing both AHAs (glycolic and lactic acid) and BHA (salicylic acid). It keeps my oily acne prone skin  free form congestion and pimples. There are only two things I don't like about this cream- the price and how "oily" it feels on the skin. 

I read several positive reviews of Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid and AHA7 Whitehead Power Liquid and wanted to try them. I thought that if I could transition to using them instead of the Skin Do…
