A quick roundup with mini reviews of some deluxe size skincare I’ve been trying the past few months/weeks!
Amorepacific Treatment Enzyme Peel ($60; sephora.com) - Love this one. Its a gentle peel, more like a face waash that leaves skin feeling clean, smooth and soft. The fragrance in this one is quite strong, which is my only complaint. A little goes a really long way. I’d definitely consider buying a full size once I’m done with the sample size, which itself is quite a generous size.
Amorepacific Treatment Cleansing Oil ($50; sephora.com) - Its a lovely cleansing oil with the same kind of strong fragrance as the peel. I did find it to be effective at removing stubborn makeup, but it irritated and left my eyes itchy and watery when used to remove mascara and eyeliner. Probably won’t buy the full size, but it is a lovely oil that doesn’t leave an oily film and takes care of removing makeup quickly.
Lancer The Method : Polish ($75; sephora.com) - is a gritty, physical exfoliant. Its quite heavy duty and a tad scratchy for sensitive skin, but leaves skin super smooth looking and bright. I do think the full size is a tad pricey, but if it comes as part of a kit or a value set, I would definitely get one.
Pixi Glow Tonic ($15; target.com) - Picked up a smaller size from Target to try and really like it. Gentle enough for everyday use, yet very effective at brightening. Will definitely repurchase and recommend if you are looking for a gentle, daily exfoliating toner.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($38; sephora.com) - Nice and gentle, nothing too special though. Good for everyday and non stripping. I can see this being a nice, gentle face wash for all skin types that can be used throughout the year.
Fresh Seaberry Face Oil ($52; sephora.com) - A sample size that I had picked up a while back, but started to use very recently. Its good for the winter time, can get a tad greasy in the summer and is a good one to mix into creams. It is quite brightening and very moisturizing.
