Algenist Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser. Scinic Aqua EX Cleansing Treatment. Konjac sponge

Hi guys, today I am doing a huge Cleansing demo video, exploring a new Cleansing trend taking both Korean and non-Korean beauty market by storm….this trend is Oil in Gel cleansers.…and also I am on the look out for Serum Cleansers…a brand new trend developing in Korea only for the moment.

One of the recent cleansing trends that has been huge in Korea is a Balm to Oil cleansing method which is has been hugely successful with the launch of Banila & Co signature cleansing product Clean it Zero. (which i also review in this video)—many other Korean brands have copied this concept with many people raving about Tony Moly`s version of the product. Aqua Porin Sherbet Cleanser….(both products pictured below)….I think it is cool trend worth a try…but in summary I think Algenist has taken this trend a step further by doing one of the most luxurious cleansers I have ever tried…the unique concept of fine gel going into the most silky oil and finally turning into a light milky essence/emulsion on contact with water. I have not been so impressed with a Western brand cleanser..since trying Philosophy`s “Purity Made Simple”.

Here is another pic of the the brands I have been exploring different cleansingg concepts from…Gel to oil, Gel to Milk, Gel to Balm, Micellar Water and Micellar Lotion.


Whilst I am totally in love with the new Algenist cleanser, I am not ready to forgo my amazing Korean Scinic Aqua Ex Cleansing Essence…which has pioneered a Cleansing Serum concept around 2 years ago. so I now combine Algenist with Scinic + plus I have been become a huge fan of the Konjac sponge…and here is my New Must Have Cleansing Method


Here is a link showcasing and reviewing all products pictured above plus a demo of my new Must Have Cleansing Method:

    Can you recommend me any other products ? (Under 50 USD dollars if possible).Thanks alot ! 😀

    1. Dear Sabytonni…I would honestly recommend to stick with your doctor`s recommendations because if there is a doctor involved then it may be something a little more serious then just a general skin problem, and since I am not a doctor…I am a little hesitant to give out general beauty advice if there is a doctor prescribed regimen that you follow….i hope you can understand where i am coming from…best regards…Lily

    Hey Lily
    Where did you get this sponge?
    I have checked bag. There are so many of them.
    Which one to choose? Please help!
    Thank you in advance.

    1. Dear Tania I got mine from Kiko Milano store…I honestly think that they are pretty much the same from everywhere …just make sure that it is a Konjac sponge though…best regards,,,,Lily

  3. Dear Lily, in all the Scinic range of products, which ones would you recommend for oily-combo skin that needs pore refinement and tightening? Would really appreciate your opinion. Thanks. 🙂
