Product Review : Major B Korea

Aye y'all!
I hope you're all doing good.
I'm back again with another product review!

I got a very special package from Major B and they wanted me to try out their products!
A big shoutout to Major B Korea for sponsoring today's post.
I have been given 4 skincare products to try out so here they are.

What is Major B?
Basically, they are an online shop that sells Korean skincare products for a very affordable price.
They are based in KK and they also offer a pick up service at their shop located in Solar On, Dah Yeh Villa.
Its on the 1st floor and you definitely won't miss the sign when you are in that area.

Anyways,
I have tried out these products for almost a month and I must say I am pretty impressed with everything.
I'm usually not the type who likes trying out new brands when it comes to skincare because I'm afraid it might irritate my skin and cause more breakouts.


Ingredients :
Water, Glycerin, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Propanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Sodium Citrate, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citric Acid, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Butylene Glycol, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Vigna Radiata Seed Extract, Xylitylglucoside, Beta-Glucan, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Helichrysum Arenarium Extract, Glucose, Pentylene Glycol, Prunus Persica (Peach) Flower Extract, Orchid Extract, Caprylyl Glycol

My first impressions after trying this out for the first time, I really like it!
It feels very gentle and soothing on my skin and I also like how it doesn't irritate the skin.
Usually when I try out new skincare products, my face would flare up easily because of certain ingredients in that product but for this one, its pretty good! I like everything that contains Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil.

If you have dry skin or Eczema,
Tea tree oil can help soothe dry skin by reducing itching and irritation.
It also works well on itchy skin. The anti-inflammatory properties of tea tree oil make it useful in relieving the discomfort of itchy skin. It soothes the skin and can also help heal infections that cause itchy skin. The anti-inflammatory effect of tea tree oil helps to soothe and relieve painful and irritated skin. It may also help to reduce redness and swelling

For oily and acne prone skin, 
The antiseptic properties of tea tree oil may contribute to its ability to combat oily skin.
Tea tree oil is a popular choice for treating acne because of its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It’s thought to calm redness, swelling, and inflammation. It may even help to prevent and reduce acne scars, leaving you with smooth, clear skin.

A few things I don't fancy is the smell of the wipes and how the wipes are slightly drier than normal wipes.
These are just small issues that I can just easily look pass it but overall I enjoy using these wipes to remove waterproof makeup and also my sunscreen. It gets the job done like any other makeup removers and Micellar Water. This is also way cheaper than my favourite Biore Makeup Remover Wipes.


Ingredients :
Salicylic Acid, Betaine Salicylate, Anti Sebum P(Patented No. 10-1333676) Natural Protector(Patented No.10-0910747), AHA Fruits Complex, Centella Asiatica Extract, Betaine

Most of you who watch my videos , you'll know that I am a big fan of the brand, COSRX.
I have been using their One Step Moisture Up pads and One Step Original Clear Pad for years now.
The owner of Major B recommended me to try this out because she claims that this is as good as the other two pads I've mentioned.

I've read through the ingredients and was pretty impressed with it.
I love it when a product contains Centella Asiatica Extract and Salicylic Acid. 

Centella stimulates collagen production, repairs skin tissue, increases elasticity, 
and therefore plays a very important role in keeping the skin youthful, plump, and vibrant. 
It is beneficial in the management of eczema, psoriasis, veins and stretch marks. 
For acne sufferers, it speeds healing, helping to prevent scarring and prevent future blemishes.

Salicylic Acid, a potent ingredient for targeting acne especially for blackheads and whiteheads. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and also helps red inflamed pimples and pustules go away faster. Salicylic acid is considered a keratolytic medication, which means that it's perfect for supreme exfoliation. 
Salicylic acid aids in removing and loosening these skin cells and helps to dissolve the blackheads.

So what I'm trying to say is that,
I love this because it helped A LOT with my acnes around my chin and neck area. It also helped a lot with fading my acne scars as well. In just 2 weeks I have already seen results. I love how the smell is not too overpowering and it doesn't irritate the skin at all.

When I first got this, I was a little sceptical. I have been a loyal user of the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask (Berry) for quite a while now and I have to say, I am not sure if I would like this.
After using it for a week, I have to admit that I really like this!

Looking through the ingredient list online, I'm convince that I am gonna keep using this because of a few ingredients that really helped my dry, chapped lips to recover in such a short period of time.

Glycerin helps with moisturizing the skin. 
Humectants in Glycerin attracts water from the air and keeps it in your skin which reduces dry and dull patches on your skin. Your skin gets soft, supple and hydrated immediately on application. It adds hydration and health to your skin. It helps to minimize water loss due to evaporation and maintains skin’s water balance on an intercellular level– so keeps skin well hydrated and nourished.

It also acts as a natural medication for fungal infections like eczema and psoriasis reducing bruising and repairs infected tissue and cells more quickly. Glycerin increases epidermal layer thickness and improves barrier function. It locks moisture in helping to keep harmful chemicals and environmental elements out of your skin.

A long list of why I love Glycerin so much in most skincare product. 
The ONLY thing I didn't like about this lip mask is that IT IS VERY STICKY!
It has a texture of a thick THICK GOOEY GLUE! 
Too sticky for my liking but other than that, I have no issues.
They stated that it has fragrance in it but I smell nothing at all.

My very first impressions about sun sticks was is't even hygienic?
Is't even worth spending on this small thing?
How much product are there inside? Does it work like a regular sunscreen?

I had so much questions about it because I am so used to using regular sunscreens which comes in either a tube or a pump bottle. Also I realised that this sunscreen contains Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Leaf Extract and Niacinamide. 

Glycyrrhiza Glabra (also known as Licorice Root Oil) is used as a whitener, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and moisturizer. Licochalcone, a molecule contained in licorice root extract, helps control oil production, and helps calm and soothe acne-prone skin.

Niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinamide) is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly improve enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and a weakened surface. Niacinamide also reduces the impact of environmental damage because of its ability to improve skin’s barrier (its first line of defense), plus it also plays a role in helping skin to repair signs of past damage. Left unchecked, this type of daily assault makes skin appear older, dull, and less radiant.

That explains why my face is looking better than a month before after using this for a month.
I had a some breakouts on and off within these past few weeks and also some irritations on my cheeks but it all went away slowly. I am a huge fan of Niacinamide because of how good it is for the skin. I'm good with anything that helps with skin repair, calming, soothing acne-prone and sensitive skin . I have to say I really like this sun stick a lot because of how convenient it is to bring around with me and also the application process didn't take too much time.

Conclusion ,
I love everything that I've tried out!
I recommend you guys to try out these products if you're looking for something new to try
or if you're looking for a cheaper dupe, these are pretty good!
