[REVIEW] COSRX Advance Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

Wednesday, October 26, 2016
 I admit it, I've been out of the skincare game for a while now. It's just that with so many things happening, it wasn't at the top of my priority list (even though it should be somewhere up there). That's why I scourged sites for the top bestsellers and this game up. I've used products containing snail mucus before like the Scinic Snail Matrix Cream and even still I remember that it was super hydrating for the winter. 

I've been hearing tons about the brand Cosrx from YouTubers and bloggers. They seem to be really booming in Korea at the moment. You'll see a few more product reviews coming up as I did end up buying more than one thing from this line. 



Advance Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is created from nutritious, low - stimulation filtered snail mucin and other great ingredients, in order to improve damaged skin.

The filtered snail mucin contained in Advance Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence penetrates under the skin into the invisible, working against damaged skin.

This 96%-concentrate ingredient keeps your skin moist all day and finds your lost vitality".


1. On the forehead and the nose, lightly touch so as not to cause heaviness
2. On the cheek, spread a generous amount and rub enough to soak into the skin
3. For under eye area, tap as if playing the piano, to make the skin absorb the essence.

I really like how this essence comes in a slim, clear plastic bottle. The pump is flatter and shorter than other pumps I've used before. However, it's very easy to control just how much product I want and also see how much product is left. One bottle comes with 100ml. 

The consistency is quite watery with just a slight slimmy feel to it. However once applied onto the skin, it feels almost like water and absorbs quickly. I'm so happy to say there isn't any slim or shine left afterwards. 

I like to apply this after cleansing and drying my face. It feels really fresh and light on the skin and I follow after it with a cream.  I am able to apply almost anything on top of it afterwards because it doesn't interfere with the consistency of my sunscreen or makeup. I've noticed that after I started using this, my skin has become incredibly soft and smooth. In terms of physical changes in my skin, I haven't really noticed anything just yet but I can feel the differences!


I've really feel that this product has been making some really good changes to my skin. It's light enough to apply underneath everything and still feel highly moisturizing. I've also purchased the cream from this line but am looking forward to trying more from this brand as a whole. Have you tried anything from cosrx?

[TRAVEL] Ottawa

Monday, October 24, 2016
Hi everyone, recently I took a short friend with my friend for her birthday. I was surprised to hear that she's never been to Ottawa considering that it isn't "too" far away from where we live. Since she's a history major Ottawa was the perfect place to go.

If you're not familiar with Canada, Ottawa is the capital which is located in Ontario near the border to Quebec. As English and French are the official languages of Canada, you can hear both languages being spoken here. A little fact about me, although I've studied French since elementary school, at best I'm only conversationally good at it. Since I was only there for three days, I could only visit so many places. Here are some highlights of the trip. Enjoy!

This is the Parliament building where Canada's government do it's work!
