May has come and people are starting to get ready for holidays.
Let me share a review for Labiotte’s perfume bar.
Yes May has arrived, it’s finally spring. The weather is getting warmer as well!
Today let me share my experience with Labiotte’s perfume bar in Flomance
This product actually came out last year, but I didn’t really see this much anywhere.
I had bought mine on Ebay, on auction. This had cost me less than 10USD, and it’s usually on sale for around 12 USD.
This perfume bar comes in box with this wine bottle embossed design.
The design is quite simple, quite pure since it’s all white.
You have a description of the product, but it’s all in Korean.
You only have a small part in English explaining this product’s main ingredient is roses.
Once removed from the box, this is what it looks like : a white wine bottle shape perfume bar.
There isn’t much explanation on the product itself. Just the name is mentioned in English and Korean. It follows the same desig. As their liptints and lipsticks. I think this is a really great design.
It’s pretty handy and easy to use when travelling around. You can easily recognize the Labiotte signature design.
As mentioned, this is a perfume bar.
To open this, you just need to remove the cap on top and you’ll find the perfume bar is white, buy clear when you rub it on your skin.
The expiration date can be foun at the bottom of the product.
There are actually four scent, I have the Flomance scent.
The main scent is rose, so this is a very flowery and powdery scent. It has that warm feeling, but fresh enough even for spring.
The scent is not too overpowering or sweet which I like.
I had used this perfume with me while I was in Japan. I was glad to see this bat doesn’t melt easily but spreads easily on the skin.
This scent lasted a couple of hours during that super hot summer( it was always between 27~30°c last July). I sweated a lot.
I think this could last longer if the weather is not too warm.
My skin did not react to this as well, no redness or pimples, or itchiness.
If you don’t like rose scented product, this might not be for you. You might say this smells like bathroom deodorant…
Travel wise this is a great product. The size is just perfect, and very travel friendly. You need to lift the cap to open it, so it won’t open accidentally in your pouch. Since this is a bar, it also won’t leak during your travel.
This Flomance scent is a very feminine and classic scent, so if you prefer more fresh and cool or even sweet scent this won’t be for you. Labiotte did come out with 4 different scent, so you might find a scent that works best for you.
All in all I have enjoyed using this while travelling.
The staying power is quite decent, and the pricing for this product is quite fair as well.
The scent worked well with my skin. If you are looking for a classic scent, with a very handy design, why not try this product!
A couple of weeks ago, Wishtrend was looking for people to review the latest Klairs product, and it’s a new version of their toner but in an unscented version.
I immediately applied since I love their toner! I had discovered this toner two years ago and now I always have a bottle in reserve.
Let’s see how the new version will do!
Just like the original version, this toner comes in a cardboard box.
You can find the explanation of the product in English and Korean.
You’ll also find that this is sealed on top with a sticker.
The toner itself comes in a transparent bottle this time.
You have once again the explanation of the product in English and Korean.
At the bottom of the bottle is where you’ll find the manufacturing date and expiration date. You know exactly how “fresh” your product is.
If you compare the design of the original and new version of the toner, you’ll see they stuck to the same the design but just inverted the colour which is pretty neat. It’s a change but still has that familiar look : simple and straight to the point.
My first impression was “wow this looks like glue!”. The more you shake the bottle the more bubbles it formed.
I was so used to the brown bottle that I never really paid attention to the toner before it dropped on my hand.
I must say I do like the way the original toner smelled like, it’s just that trademark scent of flower and herbs to me.
So when I first used the new version of the toner, I felt this smelled like plastic… and even a bit like glue that you used to use in elementary who also had the same consistency.
But after applying the scent dissipates and your skin feels smooth.
You’ll find that this unscented version is actually more watery than the original version, despite it being so bubbly in the bottle.
I also feel this one is much quickly absorbed by the skin. You can be very generous with this toner if you want, or you can even use this to do the 7 layers of toners technique.
I did a moisture test on my face after washing it and this toner actually more than doubled the moisture level of my skin!
I have been using this toner for 2 weeks day and night and did not have any bad reaction to it. It did not react to any of the other products I used in my routine.
3 to 5 drops is good for the whole face and neck if you want.
It will leave your skin feeling soft and plump and ready for the next step of your skincare routine.
This new version is definitely a winner as well.
It still has that jelly like texture, but it’s much more watery when applied on the skin.
This can be good for any skin type and I find this can be very refreshing to use during the warmer days, in summer.
If you don’t like scented skincare products, you should definitely give this one a go.
This bottle contains 180ml so this should last you at least 3 months.
If you don’t have an account on Wishtrend, you can use my 5USD coupon “163864312” for your first order, or you can use the following code to get 5% off your order by applying “wishspring” this month of April.
Thank you Wishtrend for sending me this toner.
See you on the next review.
Note : this product was sent to me for review purposes. This is my honest opinion, no compensation was received to write this post.
For some reason I am being very lazy this January, is it because of the cold or because I’m getting old?!?
Anyway let’s continue our reviews with the second product I received from Swanicoco which is their Bitamin C calm down skin toner.
I must say when I saw Bitamin C , I shrieked a bit … Had a horrible experience with vitamin C and I don’t want to go down that road again… In this case it was just the name.
This is again a product that is quite new to me so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
This toner comes in a white box with explanation of the product in Korean.
To have more details about the product, you actually need to break the box.
This box has an extra layer of protection with again that dr silhouette everywhere.
Once removed, the toner comes in this white plastic tube with the same design as the box.
This toner actually has a pump, so a pump of two is enough.
The plastic cap is also quite hard, and can be a bit annoying to open and close. I guess this is also a good thing if you want to take it with you.
Because this has a pump dispenser you are sure you won’t spill it!
This toner contains 120ml so this will last you at least 3 months if you use it twice a day.
You can find the expiration date of the product at the bottom of the bottle.
I was really surprised that this toner is rose scented… And it can be quite overpowering.
If you’ve tried Mamonde Rose water, it smells like that but with a mix of saliva scent, if you can imagine it. I’m not really a fan of rose scented skincare so this put me off a little.
I was really imagining this of having a citrus scent because of the name “bitamin c” but there was nothing of that sort!
The texture of this scent is watery and clear.
One pump and a half is enough for the whole face.
By itself, this toner doesn’t really seem that special but when I combine it with the other Swanicoco products, I feel this helps in giving me clear looking skin and my skin isn’t as oily.
It is easily absorbed by the skin and does not leave you with a sticky feel.
It this toner wasn’t scented, I think I would like this even more.
I have been using this toner for almost a month and a half and I have seen a difference in the way my skin looks when I use this toner.
It doesn’t smell that good, but it works really well with other Swanicoco products.
The pump is a good sanitized way of getting the product, but if you pump too hard, it you splash you in the eye so be careful!
I would have liked if a part of the plastic bottle was see through so you could immediately see how much of the product is left. It could just be a line with a ruler design for example and you can see how much is let, when it’s time to get a new one.
I also like that they push the consumer to break the box open for more information, but I would have wished for more explanation in English. Graphics and bulletpoints are good, but sometimes you do need more clarifications.
Thank you Swanicoco for sending me this product.
I was surprised and despite the scent this is actually a good toner that is helping me have a clear skintone!
See you on the next review.

Sorry for the absence. I had a bit of writer’s block … And the holidays kinda tired me.
I have too many overdue reviews, so let’s start catching up.
Let’s start with Swanicoco’s the bio theraphy 1st essence.
A couple of months ago, Swanicoco was looking for people to take part on their “Swan project”. If you were chosen, you would be sent products to review based on your skin type.
I was lucky enough to be selected as one of their newest swan!
Swanicoco is a Korean brand that is specialized in using bio and natural extracts!
This one is a first for me. Because of this, the prices of these products are a bit more expensive.
I was able to visit one of their stores in Seoul and the store is quite chic and they are still new. You can’t find these store that easily yet. I found this store in Ewha.
Let’s get back to business and go to our first review, the 1st essence.
This essence comes in a nice red aluminium box.
Most of the writing are in Korean though.
When you open the box, you’ll find that there is an extra layer of protection.
You can see may Dr Swanicoco drawing inside which I find pretty cool!
If you completely open the box you’ll find more explanation about the benefits of the product.
Elasticity,moisture, soothing and nutrition are the benefits of this product.
It is also mentioned on the box that you could use this as a mask.
Here is the bottle of the 1st essence.
This is a glass bottle with the same as the box and feels quite heavy and looks expensive imo.
It has a screw top opening and I feel it has some sort of dosing system as you really need to shake it to let the product out.
This bottle contains 100 ml so this should last you a couple of months, at least 3 months if you use it day and night.
This 1st essence is to be used after washing your face to prepare your skin for the next step.
It has a bit of a jelly like texture so it’s not that watery but it still have a more body that most 1st essence I have used. I would compare the texture to Klairs toner.
This doesn’t really have a scent which is great.
I have been using this 1st essence for a month now twice a day and night and find that this is a great product.
At first it feels sticky then after a minute it dries up and feels matte and if you wait a bit more you’ll feel your skin will be super soft to the touch.
I was really amazed by the evolution of the product once it touches your skin. It’s really magical, that’s really the only way I could explain it.
I do feel this prepares my skin for the next step as it smoothes it out and gives me a perfect canvas for the next product.
I usually shake the bottle 3 times to get enough product for my face. Because it has this jelly like texture it’s easy to apply and can be spread out evenly.
It won’t drip from your hands.
This is a great discovery and will already say this is my favorite Swanicoco product I have tried so far.
The texture is just magical, you just need to try it to understand!
This product can be a bit hard to find online. I think the only available seller right now is W2beauty but it’s quite costly at 51$… Hopefully there will be more sellers online that will offer this at a lower price soon.
Thank you Swanicoco for sending me this product. I am enjoying this very much, even my sister has started using this and loves the immediate results it gave.
