I’ve been busy in couple last months because I finally got a new job and I got unexpected medicine allergy that made my skin super dry, hoarse and flaky. It feels like I’m wearing egg white mask and forget to washed my face. Since my current skin care almost not helpful at all and I desperately miss my smooth skin *self bragging alert!* so I decided to try some new skincare in hope to solve my skin problem. After spent almost whole of my spare time in Google search for skincare options (well, this is actually a real reason behind my blog hiatus. I just dedicated my free time looking for skincare :P) I choose to try some Korean brand skincare. Why Korean brand? Did I just catch a K-Pop fever? Well, actually not. I already used some Korean brand skincare and happy with the result. They cheap and effective, isn’t it sound perfect?!
So, I checked to my favorite Korean cosmetic brand seller Hermo Indonesia site and glad that they have some items on my must-buy skincare list. Something I love from Hermo Indonesia is not only they have heaps of Korean cosmetics brand (oh my God they just brought Cosrx!), but they always offer a great bargain and discount, plus they ship our stuff fast! I’m never gonna be a patient woman, so sometimes online shopping give me nerve, especially when I shop at online shop outside Indonesia. I can’t wait to see and tried my stuff and it’s not the first time I contact some online shop customer service to make sure they already process and sent my items. P.O systems? No thank you, I’d rather find another shop.
Hermo Indonesia website is quite clean without unnecessary add-ons and the navigation is simple so we can surf and find the product we’re looking for easily. They have wide selection of payment method so you can choose what kind of payment method you like. If you a lazy ass like me you can use credit card or e-transfer, but if you don’t have credit card or e-banking, you can pay via manual/atm bank transfer. Don’t worry about their reputation, they already became a huge e-commerce shop in Malaysia and Singapore before they came to Indonesia so your stuff will 100% original.
So, how about my Hermo haul?
My stuff came in small, not overly fancy carton box. I don’t have a box picture, sorry
(already used for my dhl shipment :P). The product it self was secured tightly by a bubble warp, they even use bubble warp for mask sheet! It’s to make sure that the product received in save and good condition.
So, here it is! Mizon Water Volume EX First Essence, Nature Republic Marine Aqua Collagen Hydrogel mask, A’pieu Nature Easy Eyebrow pencil, Missha Love Secret Hand Cream (Line Friend Edition), and last but not least, Benton Aloe BHA Skin toner.
This post already long, so here is my first impression for each product 🙂
Mizon Water Volume EX First Essence HYDRA TOX
Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner
Acid toner is a big think recently, and I also jump the trend of acid toner. While currently I’m using the infamous Pixy Glow (sharing bottle, to poor to bought a full size), I don’t think it help my problem so I’m looking for more effective acid toner. After reads lot of review on internet, I choose Benton Aloe BHA skin toner because it’s people keep saying this toner is awesome and because it said to help reduce the itchiness of a flaky dry skin (and my flaky skin is so itchy DX) . Yes it does! The packaging is remind me to Kiehl’s packaging
because duh, most of Korean brand packaging is a copy of popular Western/Japanese brands, but it works better in my skin! Since the first time I using this baby, my hoarse and flaky skin suddenly became more soft and not itchy anymore. On the third day, the hoarse and died dry skin on my jaws almost gone. Super love!!
Nature Republic Marine Aqua Collagen Solution Hydrogel Mask
This is the most fanciest mask sheet I ever tried. Not only because the price is about twice than regular mask sheet but also because the mask is made of gel *that’s why they called it hydrogel* thus it’s make the mask felt more hydrated and made my skin felt soft and supple. It has a hint of alcohol scent but not that much, and your skin will felt relaxed when you used it.
A’pie Nature Easy Eyebrow Pencil in Grey Brown (09)
Could I said that A’pieu is one of my favorite Korean cosmetics brand? I already tried some of they product and I never felt disappointed, including this eyebrow pencil. It comes in tiny size, almost as long as the pencil lead so you don’t deceived with the packaging. This pencil has 5 different color option and I choose grey brown(04) because I think it will suit me very well. The texture is good too, not too hard but not to soft. The only think I don’t really like is the numb pencil end. I prefer sharp pencil end so I can draw my eyebrow more precisely.
Missha Love Secret Hand Cream ( Line Friends Edition) #Mango Flower
I love mango, and I think Sally is very me, that’s why I bought this hand cream. Basically I more into a fruity, fresh scent than floral or woody scent. Its came in tin tube, which make it feels expensive but this hand cream is not creamy at all. It’s more like a light lotion so you probably need a lot to make your hand felt moisturized. But the scent is remind me of mango pudding, so I’m okay with it.
When you shopping online, there always chance of hit and miss, but for this time, I could say that all of my purchased item is hit.
