The lotion is a slightly viscous milky liquid. both hydrating and moisturising. However, others might prefer to layer this on top of a hydrating toner. It is not moisturising enough to function as a milk replacement, but it might work as an all-in-one or an essence step.

It takes several seconds for to sink in. There is a very slightly tacky finish — perhaps from the honey — that lingers for a minute or so.

  2. Hanyul Rice Balancing Emulsion
  3. **Sana nameraka Isoflavone Soy emulsion – might feel greasy
  4. **Kose Sekkisei Lotion – might be high in alcohol, semi-gloss/glossy finish. It’s not a natural glow
  5. Imju Naturie Job’s Tears** lotion?
  6. Klair’s toner – doesn’t leave residue feeling. Some got CC’s from this

**Cezanne feels like Kiku, Meishoku feels like Hada Labo

  2. Hotamugi skin conditioner – very watery, like an FTE, not much skin benefits other than hydration**
  3. Matsuyama Moisturizing Toner
  4. Matsuyama Hydrating Toner Light
  5. Kohaku Hada Lotion – not too thin nor creamy
  6. Sofina Beaute High Moisture Lotion – better than Klair’s toner

Ceramide: (**)

  1. Duplair W Ceramide Lotion

  3. Kohaku-hada
  4. Matsuyama

Can’t find:

  1.  Dr Wu Squalane

Taiwanese product:

  1. Elsa Gusa ceramide Essence

MASKS

  1. My Scheming
  2. My Beauty Diary

*Emulsion *try layering light products

  1. Mizon Snail Ampoule – plumping + hyrdating effect, maybe a bit sticky. not recommended to be last step. Decent ingredients (80% snail filtrate), but alcohol is part of first 5 ingredients, some had meh experience
  2. Dr. Jart Ceramadin (150ml) *check reviews
  3. Cosrx Birch Sap – but I might use it up quickly (similar to Cosrx snail)
  4. Rose water+glycerin?
  5. Squalane?
  6. Peptides? – most don’t see any result, not much skin benefits

A bit expensive, considering per ml:

  1. LJH tea tree essence
  2. Goodal waterest oil
  3. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum
  4. Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr Honey Cream
  5. Stratia Liquid Gold
