Summer vibes READY!! ft Urang

Uncategorized

Oh summer! I love summer weather, ootd, and vibes. This summer has been very different from previous. Most of us are staying home, practicing social distancing, maybe eating too many snacks, and marathon-ing shows on Netflix. I know for sure I am. All of this has definitely made me let go more of my body. My body care is literally a ZERO. Sometime I forget to even put body lotion on. * don’t judge haha *

This year I’ve been experiencing more body and neck acne then I’ve experienced before. I feel like a few reasons could be my hair care, lifestyle, and climate factors. Sometimes I will apply some clay or soft masks on my neck to help with the breakouts and hyperpigmentation. Of course, whatever skincare I put on my face, I will apply on my neck too. This didn’t seem enough, so I was really intrigued when I found out Urang was coming out with some new soaps.

There are 4 different kinds of soap but two of them are new additions, Artemisia Green and Trouble shooter. The other two soaps are Sweet Honey & Milk (new packaging & name now), and Rose Garden (new packaging & name now). Urang’s Handmade soap are cold pressed (CP) soaps which are manufactures for 6 weeks by Urang CEO Jina Lee.

There are different ways of making soaps. One is HP which you dry the soap for 2 weeks using 60 degree heat, second is MP which you melt the soap base and add fragrances/color, and moisturizer to harden the mold. Lastly, it is CP which has a manual process of drying period over 4 weeks with 40 to 45 degree heat. 

I got Trouble shooter soap since it seem the most effective for body acne and break outs. It contains Content Heartleaf, Perilla, Tea tree leaf oil, olive oil, coconut and palm oil. These ingredients help cleanse your skin and reduce troubles, redness, and acne. Urang recommends this soap for oily to combination skin types but dry skin types can use it as well if they need some soothing. These soaps can be used on both your body or face. I personally prefer using it on my body since I need help more there. 

I find the lather really nice! It feels very comfortable and smooth on the skin. I was surprised how nice it felt. It’s been a long time since I’ve used bar soaps since I always go for body wash. Also, the shape and texture of the soap is so unique. I can tell a lot of effort was put into it. I haven’t seen a difference yet with my skin but I will have to use It more often. I will definitely update you again after using it for a longer period of time. 

Do you use bar soaps or body wash? Also would you try out the new or upgraded Urang soaps? Leave me a comment~ 🙂

Benefits of Yuja Skincare ft Urang Yuja Vita Ampoule

Uncategorized

What is yuja?

Have you heard of yuja or citron? It’s a citrus fruit commonly found in Northern east Asia such as Korea, Japan, China, and Tibet. In Korean it is called Yuja. This fruit is commonly used in tea mixture of sugar, honey, and depulped or thinly sliced yuja. Then add about 3 tablespoons of tea in hot water to dilute it. It’s great tea when you feel sick with a cold, have a sore throat, experience digestive problems or just want a sweet hot tea. 

What are the skin benefits of yuja?

Not only is yuja great for the body but it’s benefical for your skin. I remember a couple years ago, so many Korean brands came out with their own version of yuja skincare. When you add yuja into skincare, some perks are high concentration of vitamin c, anti-aging properties, and collagen production stimulation. Since it contains a large amount of vitamin c, it will help with brightening the complexion, evening out your skin tone, and fading hyperpigmentation. 

New Yuja Skincare ~ Urang Yuja Vita Ampoule

Recently, Urang released their new ampoule which immediately caught my attention. I am a sucker for anything that helps with brightening my complexion and fading hyperpigmentation. This ampoule is a milky texture that absorbs nicely into the skin. It contains main ingredients such a yuja water, yuja essential oil, and alpha-bisabolol (brightening ingredient). 

I was surprised by the milky texture and consistency. Even though it may look thick, it felt really comfortable. Have you used any yuja skincare? What do you think about it?

New Skincare Alert!! Urang Blue Power Ampoule

Uncategorized

New Ampoules Alert!!!

So many brands these days are coming with new releases and my wallet can’t handle it. Haha. Not too long ago, Urang renewed their pink everlasting ampoule, and they hit us with two more releases, Yuja vita ampoule and blue power ampoule. I was shook!! 

First of all, let’s look at this beautiful color. I thought the Blue oil serum was captivating but the new ampoule catches my attention more. You may see similar ingredients between the oil serum and ampoule, but there is one ingredient that had me mind blow. This new ampoule contains a whopping 92.6% of opuntia humifusa flower extract. Opuntia is great for stimulating new cell growth, calming inflammation, provide anti-aging properities, fading wrinkles, and brightening your skin. 

The texture is a bit milky but not thick.  After applying it to my skin, I noticed it had a very hydrating but smoothing finish. It gives my skin a nice natural glow. Also, it absorbs nicely into the skin. After I was introduced to opuntia ingredients through Huxley skincare, I became fond of it. So of course, when I realized Urang new ampoule has a high concentration of opuntia, I had to try it. 

What do you think of opuntia? Does it work for you?
