Missha: M Perfect Cover SPF42 PA+++ vs M Signature Real Complete SPF25 PA++

I don’t need to introduce anyone to the players of today’s entry. Korean brand Missha is well known to all K-Beauty lovers and is one of the first brands I dealt with. It's easy to guess that I started with a BB cream and my choice fell on Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42 PA +++, which turned out to be pretty good and it’s a pretty frequent guest on my shelf. After some time I felt lack of comparison ground so I decided to try a different BB of the same label and chose Missha M Signature Real Complete SPF25 PA ++. Both choices were fairly safe, as they are very popular BBs and there’s plenty of information on them. I decided to compare them when I realized that in my case there is a drastic difference between the two. To the point.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 100ml

Today, I return to my favourite (apart from the AHA / BHA) topic, which is Asian cosmetics. In the Western Hemisphere, discovering the immense Korean and Japanese market is still quite fresh thing and always interesting. For me personally, phenomenons are UVA / UVB protection products, BB/CC creams (you know it!) but not only those. I’m gradually discovering more and more of new, interesting cosmetics worth mentioning, some of them are already on my shelf. About one of my favs is today’s post.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is my absolute favourite when it comes to cleansing the skin. Despite the fact that the Western market is full of this type of products, until I have had found the above-mentioned wonder I wasn’t happy with the results. Let me remind you that the composition of the product, its performance and price are very important for me. I don’t focus on cosmetics within a very high price range, don’t write about what I wouldn’t use and don’t recommend anything if the INCI list puzzles me in a negative way. OK, back to the topic ...

Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF20

Today’s review is brought to you by Ania’s special request ;) Initially, I wasn’t going to mention the product, because all in all I prefer to focus on the Asian cosmetics and I'm not a big fan of foundations (and certainly not those ones made by western brands) - a great number of them clogged me up in the past, or were too opaque, or I'm just too demanding :D But there you go, today I’m reviewing a liquid foundation, which to my surprise I have in my make-up bag and is OK.

Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF20 is today's hero, but quite accidentally I came across it. Having ordered boxes of samples from Korea and Japan, in one of them there were higher end brands samples, Western ones together with Asian ones. In there I found a sample of this foundation, in addition in the shade perfectly matched to my skin... This is what I call coincidence!
