OhLolly Buys


I wanted to review my recent purchases:

  • Kicho – Ultra Moisturizing Sun Cream
  • heimish- All Cream Balm



This review is written after 2 weeks of consistent use.

Kicho – Ultra Moisturizing Sun Cream (spf 50 PA ++):

This sunscreen has been an absolute game changer for me. I like efficiency of a 2-in-1 product that moisturizes and also protects from sun damage. It leaves no white-cast, doesn’t feel greasy, and doesn’t smell like your typical sunscreen. In fact, it has a calming floral scent. This hasn’t broken me out, which is another huge plus. It seems to sit well under makeup as well.

heimish- All Cream Balm

The packaging for this product is so so pretty! It comes with a spoon which I appreciate since it is much hygienic for the product. People have compared this to Banila Co’s Clean It Zero, but without the added fragrance that comes with Banila Co. I have personally used Banila Co for 2 weeks, and ended up giving it to my sister because I felt it was too harsh for my sensitive skin. The heimish balm uses hypoallergenic ingredients which is much gentler and less stripping, while removing all my makeup.


Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid


I read a lot about adding BHA & AHA to skincare regime to help with exfoliating, decongesting pores, and improving overall skin texture.

I read Reddit /r/AsianBeauty and other beauty blogs, and came across Cosrx BHA as a holy grail product for a lot of people. I have oily skin, and I struggle with blackheads/clogged pores, so I went ahead and purchased this product.

It’s quite affordable at $18, and  a single pump is enough to cover your entire face. I’d say even if you use the product once a day at night, it would last 5-6 months, maybe longer?

I used it for 4 weeks, only at night. Here is my experience:

  • Week 1: product seemed to be working. My skin was glowing and looked more refreshed.
  • Week 2&3: I broke out on my chin. I thought this was purging, which is good because it means all the gunk is coming to the surface
  • Week 4: I started breaking out on my cheeks!! I normally don’t break out on my cheeks so when I do, it’s a sign that I’m not purging but that the product is giving me irritation/breaking me out

So sadly, this was a miss for me. I am still looking for a good BHA product for pore maintenance, any suggestions are welcomed.
