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 :-)

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: Naruko Tea tree shine control & blemish clear night gelly

As I am writing this blog post, I glance at the empty tub of the Naruko Tea tree night gelly ( that is the actual spelling on the tub)  I can't bare to throw it away yet. I absolutely loved using it.

But before I tell you anything else about this product, I must tell you this:  This was the best smelling skin care product I have ever used. I bet you are surprised. After all it is called a Tea tree night gelly and as we know tea tree doesn't smell nice at all. But this product does not smell of tea tree oil. Ok, may be there is just a hint of tea tree, but a nice smelling one. To be precise, the gelly smells like a fresh spring morning: crisp and cool, delicately scented as snowdrops  and with a gentle hint of mint. That's why I can't bare to throw away the empty tub yet, I keep on sniffing it...

The gelly applies smoothly and it feels very cool on the skin.  I didn't like that at first because I prefer skin care products that feel warm or at least not cool. But I go…
