Greetings, lovelies! I’ve been a beauty writer for over 10 years and a skincare/cosmetic enthusiast since I was a teenager. I love what beauty makes possible, so I also write makeup, skin, and hair care tutorials for FierceLeague.com.

• Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Invigorating Water
• Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum
• Shangpree Bitgoa Hue Rich Cream
• Nivea Super Protect Water Gel Sunscreen
• Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Oil EX
• Hada Labo Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Bubble Foaming Cleanser

• Sulwhasoo Radiance Energy Mask

Clio products are amazing! I always see them equated as the MAC cosmetics of Korea and I totally agree.
How long would you say these last? I don’t mind having to reapply but do you at least get a few good hours out of them?
As long as I’m not eating or drinking anything, kscarson, it lasts about two hours. The flavor dissipates pretty quickly, but I found the gloss lasted a fair amount of time. I generally only reapply it once in the afternoon, so I feel it lasts longer than most glosses (and is more hydrating).
I recently got the Clio Mad Matte lipstick and was really impressed with it too! Really great colour payoff and because it was matte, it was longer lasting than expected. And not drying compared to other matte lipsticks I’ve tried!
The only things that I have combined are Vit C with my moisturizer and Vit C with Vit E cream. I know some people do mix, but I would be careful that you don’t mix things that will make you break out of make you have a rash. Like I said, I know people do, but they know what they are doing, not me 🙂 Good luck.
Thanks for the note of caution, Lynda. I use all of these products individually as well, so they’ve all passed the “Tracy-safe” test. 🙂
I do it ALL THE TIME! I usually mix my hadolabo premium with the TO Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA and TO Buffet. Keeps my skin moisutrized, bright, and plump :). I love taking any product with a basic ingredient and mix it with another to create my own skincare concoctions. Just be sure to check that there isn’t a negative reaction before mixing two ingredients. I learned the hard way that Vitamin C + Niacinimide= OUCH
That’s a great combination, maddyjones. I have TO Matrixyl in the cupboard by my desk, so I’m going to try that with the HL tomorrow. Thanks for the tip! Lately, I’ve found that just about any serum (especially the stickier ones) mixes well with the HL premium. And I totally agree about knowing your ingredients. I reserve my Vitamin C for mornings and load up on niacinamide products at night.
Definitely! Hyluronic Acid is a fantastic base for any pseudo skincare chemistry experiments! Have you tried using TO Matrixyl as an eye serum? I heard it’s a great dupe for the Amorepacific Intense Vitalizing Eye Essence.
Ooooh! Now that’s one I haven’t tried. I’m deeply devoted to the Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Eye Serum, but Matrixyl would be perfect for under the eyes. Thanks! I’m so thankful for everyone in the AB community who shares info so freely. You’re awesome! Thanks, maddyjones!
Of course! Us beauty geeks gotta stick together! 😉
It’s definitely time to change things up with the coming seasons; it’s getting really hot where I live and as much as I avoid the sun, I am getting a little more color and everything feels like it’s going to melt off my face lol
I hear ya! I’ve started shortening my morning routine by combining products to make my own all-in-one, so I don’t sweat to death while getting ready. BTW, Hada Labo Hyaluronic Premium + Shark Sauce (from HolySnails.com) + Zymogen Centella Asiatica Essence is my new AIO. 🙂
I’ve been wanting to the try out the Premium formula, I’ve had good success with the other Hada Labo products I’ve tried. And Shark Sauce/Chel are both a godsent, amazing product and amazing woman.
I’m on my third bottle of the Premium! When Jude Chao reviewed it, I decided it was time to get on board…and, as always, she was spot-on. And Chel the Snail Wizard will forever get my business because, for once, I know exactly what’s in each product.
Hi tracyannteel! I wish I were your #skintwin! My skin is extremely unstable (still!). 😂Except for the decade, it sounds like your @judechao’s #skintwin in terms of skin type.
Hi annapark! You’re absolutely right about Jude Chao being my #skintwin. I found her blog in 2015 thanks to cocopark and Kerry Thompson’s book. I’ve been saying #FiddyMadeMeDoIt ever since! If she says “buy it,” I do…and it always works beautifully. Take care, pretty lady!
