Facial Creams Comparison: Laneige, Missha, Bliss, Beauty of Joseon, Shara Shara, Enprani & Claire


I am a bit late in posting my winter facial cream but better late than never? Plus I thought it might be helpful for those who are trying to get their skin spring ready!

We had not had a “real” winter where I lived for a few years so I was able to get by with my usual creams. However this winter it was a lot colder and we finally had rain. As much as I am happy about having winter weather, my skin turned into a monster. No matter how much moisturizer I put on, my skin just drank it all up and want more. Now finding a hydrating moisturizer is pretty tough, even worse when you have oily skin (yes it is possible to have dehydrated oily skin). If I use too moisturizing of a cream, my face will just become an oil slick and pores become so clogged. SO if you have oily dehydrated skin battling the bitter cold/dry weather, these are a few of my HG and misses this winter.

 (this is going to be a super long post!But there is a pro/con chart at the end :] )

*edit: I broke down the original post into a series. Each post will feature one cream and this post will include the comparison.If you click on the facial cream’s name it will bring you to the individual review post. Hope this is helpful!

  1. Last winter i actually meant to buy the Cho Bo Yang cream but accidentally got the massage cream instead. I liked the scent, but had no clue what to do with it. Now I’m extra sad I didn’t get the cream because it sounds like something my skin really needed this winter!


    1. You can get it for next year! Cho Bo Yang as a massage cream (like body cream)?!? That sounds amazing if it does what it does for the face. I sadly neglect the skin on my body…but you can do some serious anti-aging for your body~!
