K-Beauty: YADAH Skincare Review

 There's nothing quite like cutely packaged beauty products to get me excited about taking care of my skin, and Korean companies get this. That's probably the reason why there's such a huge following of these trendy, cute products. I recently was approached by a company to review a few items from their skincare line, and much to my delight, I found you can actually order Yadah off of Amazon!

So let's jump into it, shall we?
First up, this sunscreen. Or as they call it, Sun Slush. It's not slushy in texture at all, which I had been expecting. Instead, it's a light moisturizer which absorbs quickly into the skin. The thing I appreciate most about this sunscreen is how it leaves my skin with a non-oily finish. It also contains "prickly pear cactus" so that's fun to say. Overall, it's a nicely scented sunscreen, is absorbed quickly by the skin, and is the perfect size for any trips. Oh, and did I mention 50SPF? I'm not getting burnt on my next trip, that's for sure!
Next up we have these Anti-T acne fighting products. The Anti-Trouble Bubble Cleanser is chock full of natural ingredients to help with breakouts, including sage, aloe vera, rosemary, and green tea! All in all, I think those ingredients help give it it's crisp and refreshing scent. 

The Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream is another item stuffed with natural ingredients, including plant based extracts that help absorb excess skin sebum! The applicator has an interesting design, in which  I believe the intent is to have you pump out the cream directly onto your trouble spot and not even have to use your fingers to rub it in. I'll have to continue using this for a few more weeks and see how my acne does with it. So far, no flare ups though!
Finally, this All Day Cushion by Yadah x Sonyunara.
I have to say, this was the only item that gave me such a huge disappointment.
It's the wrong shade for my skin. I received this in Light Beige, which is typically what works for me, however, as soon as I started applying it I realized it was several shades too light. When I went to the product page to see if there were any other options, I was disappointed to find none. Not only that, but I discovered that this cushion does more than the typical coverage and UV protection. It's advertised to help with whitening!

I understand that in Asia having white skin is a beauty standard many strive to reach, but reading that put me off from this product. It's funny, because I remember walking down the beauty aisles in the Philippines and finding almost every product had some sort of "whitening" benefit included. My cousins could hardly believe when I told them about tanning salons. Funny how standards can change based on where you are, huh?

What do you think of Yadah? Have you ever heard of them before? Would you try any of these products?

PS: What do you think of the new blog template? I finally decided to splurge and buy one, and man oh man, I'm so glad I did! It's so sleek and I feel really suites the direction I want to take this blog.
