Thank you, 10th Generation of Beautiful Pioneers!

We are officially wrapping up the 10th generation of Beautiful Pioneers! We are so happy to say that this round was a great success—in no small part to all the applicants and everyone that participated. A big thank you to everyone involved and especially our partner Jumiso. With that said, let’s get to the results!


This round, we distributed not just one but two products to K-Beauty enthusiasts from all over the country. The products were Jumiso’s Yes, I Am Toner and Have a Good Cream. 

Here is a report on what we got from our Beautiful Pioneers:

1. Jumiso – Yes, I Am Toner 


An exfoliating toner that is suitable for all skin-types. It contains 5% AHA from glycolic acid and lactic acid to help wipe away dead skin cells and improve overall skin texture. It also contains Houttuynia cordata (Chameleon Plant) extract which has antibacterial properties and rice ferment to give the skin a major boost of hydration.


Use it morning or night—but don’t forget to wear SPF for daytime use.


After cleansing, soak some cotton pads with toner and gently wipe all over the face.

2. Jumiso – Have A Good Cream


An everyday cream infused with snail mucin and centella asiatica to help repair damage and even out hyper-pigmentation. It is also intensely hydrating because it contains squalene—a highly effective emollient that’s rich in antioxidants.


Morning and evening


At the end of your skincare routine, apply a generous layer all over the face.


-Yes, I am Toner-

The majority of our Beautiful Pioneers enjoyed this toner and felt that it was effective in exfoliating their skin. The toner has a thin, watery consistency that easily absorbs into the skin and it was even mentioned that the toner could be transferred into a spray bottle to be use as a mist. A lot of BP’s noticed that the product contained a slight citrus-y scent but it doesn’t linger for long. Some BPs felt that the toner wasn’t as hydrating and that they needed to follow up with another moisturizing product. Overall the Yes, I am Toner was able to help remove dry patches and smooth out skin complexion.

-Have A Good Cream-

There was a lot of excitement surrounding Have A Good Cream because of the incorporation of snail mucin and centella—two very well loved ingredients in the K-Beauty community. Our Beautiful Pioneers put this cream to the test and found that it had a soothing effect and that it was lightly moisturizing without making the skin feel too sticky. The cream had a lightweight texture to it which allowed for quick absorption however some BPs felt that it was too lightweight to use in the fall and upcoming winter season. Many agreed that they would need to test the product out for a longer period of time in order to comment on the cream’s brightening properties.


Here are some interesting thoughts by a few of our reviewers:

[REVIEW]: Jumiso Yes, I Am Toner AHA 5% 💦 〰 I already had my eye on Hello Skin's new products, even before their official release, so you can imagine how excited I was to receive the Jumiso Yes, I Am Toner & Have a Good Cream as part of Cupidrop's Beautiful Pioneers 10th Generation (in exchange for my honest, unbiased review). 〰 Jumiso Yes, I Am Toner is an alcohol free, exfoliating toner that contains 5% AHA's (Glycolic & Lactic Acids) to gently remove dead cells from the surface of the skin, but that's not all! This versatile toner also contains Panthenol to soothe & hydrate, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract to brighten & revitalize, antioxidant rich Houttuynia Cordata Extract to detoxify & promote healing, & Lemon Myrtle (Blackhousia Citriodora Leaf Oil) which helps to balance skin's natural oils while providing a very light, pleasant scent. 〰 As someone with dry, aging skin, I really depend on acid based toners to remove dead surface skin cells & to help with new cell turnover, which keeps my skin from looking tired & dull. This clear, watery toner absorbs quickly & feels incredibly gentle on the skin. Upon initial application it does feel mildly tacky but within a minute or two it dries down completely, leaving my skin feeling hydrated, refreshed, & toned. 〰 The final verdict? I'm impressed! I absolutely adore the cute, simple packaging & for such a mild peeling toner it really does a fantastic job of exfoliating without drying me out or causing any redness or irritation. I've been using this toner morning & night for 7+ days & my pores are much clearer, smaller, & my complexion appears brighter, smoother, & more even toned. Highly recommended! 〰 Where to buy: ~ $18 for a 125ml/4.2oz bottle (use code KBEAUTYBFF for 15% off!) 〰 Thank you Iris, @cupidrop, & @hello_skin_official!🙏❤😍 · · · · · · · · · · #Cupidrop #Jumiso #HelloSkin #BeautifulPioneers #BeautifulPioneers10thGeneration #yesiamtoner #toner #skincare #skincareroutine #skincareblog #skinpamper #skinfirst #365skincare #selfcare #kbeauty #koreanskincare #antiaging #dryskin #instaskincare #instabeauty #instablogger #abblogger #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #prsample

🆕Blog Initial Impressions on Jumiso Yes, I am Toner & Have a Good Cream (courtesy of @cupidrop) Verdict: 🙌 . . 👩‍💻Blog Recap: So, I actually liked the Cream better than the AHA toner! The AHA toner is quite nice and if you are in the market for an AHA glycolic toner that has no tacky residue and a nice lemony scent, this is it. If I had to pick either Pixi Glow Tonic over the Jumiso Yes, I am Toner, I would pick the latter. I find Pixi to have a dewy and sticky residue on my skin, plus it has a rose-floral like scent that I abhor. This one is much nicer, imho and it has astringent benefits, without alcohol ~ so for pore care, it cannot be beat and I do think all skin types will enjoy this gentle, daily prep toner. However, the Have a Good Cream is the standout between these two items for me. It’s been a while since I used a 🐌snail cream, and I remember that I found them to be sticky and tacky on my skin. Have a Good Cream has no tacky residue, dries down nicely and leaves my skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated. I think for oily and combo/oily skin people, this is the snail cream for them ~ and it has the added benefit of healing 🌱centella and its derivatives in it.

Your old moisturizer is about to get eclipsed… 🌗🌘🌑 ⠀ As part of the #beautifulpioneers campaign, @cupidrop kindly sent me the brand new @hello_skin_official Have a Good Cream moisturizer by Jumiso. ⠀ 🌀 TEXTURE This is like pudding 😋 A light and smooth consistency! Sinks into the skin quickly. Reminds me of a less-fluffy DE Lala Retro Whipped. No added fragrance, contains a natural lightly clean + herbal scent. ⠀ 📦 PACKAGING + VALUE 1.7oz for $24 ($14/oz) Adorable illustrations on a standard tub. No spatula/spoon included. Compare to: Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream — $22/oz, Dr. Jart Cicapair tinted SPF cream – $31/oz, Mizon Snail Repair Perfect Cream — $22/oz ⠀ 🔬 INGREDIENTS • Humectants (glycerin, squalane, silicones) — absorb water from deep layers of the skin to hydrate the surface levels • Centella asiastica — antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory 😍 + additionally contains the 3 actives of cica (asiaticoside, madecassic acid, asiatic acid) • Snail mucin — antioxidants, antimicrobial peptides, moisture-attracting amino sugar, hyularonic acid, glycolic acid • Bacillus ferment — enzyme exfoliant • Arginine — amino acid • Plant extracts + oils — bo he (chinese mint) extract, jojoba seed oil, macadamia seed oil, lemon myrtle leaf oil ⠀ 🐰 COMPANY + ETHICS Jumiso by Hello Skin is a Korean company that does not test on animals AND does not sell directly in mainland China! Not vegan (snail mucin is a key ingredient) — please make your own informed decision if snail secretion is right for you. 💗 ⠀ ⭐️ RESULTS The ingredients speak for themselves, but this is really lovely moisturizer! To test, for five days I applied at AM & PM, alternating with my regular moisturizers. I applied before SPF and after serum/toner/acids/retinol and everything played nicely together. ⠀ On my dehydrated skin, applying creams with too many occlusive humectants can cause a suffocated pimply oil slick when I wake up, but this cream is light and nourishing while being moisture-packed~ I totally expected it to be too heavy for me, but I’m looking forward to using it up! 😚

💕K-BEAUTY REVIEW💕 I was fortunate enough to be selected as a @cupidrop 10th Generstion Beauty Pioneer and receive a couple of products to review. @hello_skin_official is a Korean Beauty and Skincare brand that provides cruelty-free skincare that is suitable for all skin types. I tried out the Jumiso Yes, I Am Toner as well as the Jumiso Have A Good Cream Moisturizer. ⚡Jumiso Yes, I Am Toner⚡ ~Notable Ingredients: Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid, Houttuynia Cordata Extract,  Rice Ferment Filtrate ~Overall Rating: 3/5 ~Review: Over the past few months I’ve been using a BHA toner, but I replaced it with this Yes, I Am Toner that contains 5% AHA. I love using a chemical exfoliator such as one like this to keep my skin clean and pores clear. I used this product for 10 days, morning and night, and avoided using any other AHAs/BHAs and Vitamin C. After this short time, I didn’t notice a huge difference, but my skin did feel somewhat smoother. The first two days of using it, my skin did become slightly more dry and it stung a little the first time of use. But after the initial two days, my skin adapted and started responding better. I did like using this in my routine because the cheek area were kept smooth and exfoliated. I also loved the texture and how it easily absorbed into the skin. It’s a light/water-like toner and it soaks in quicker than some of my other toners. ⚡Jumiso Have A Good Cream Moisturizer⚡ ~Notable Ingredients: Snail Secretion Filtrate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Squalene, Jojoba Seed Oil ~Scent: Slight herbal smell. ~Overall Rating: 5/5 ~Review: Out of the two products, the Have A Good Cream was easily my favorite. Centella Asiatica and Snail Mucin are two of my favorite skincare ingredients, so I really, really loved this moisturizer (and I’m very picky about those)! At first, I thought it may be a bit oily and could cause breakouts, but I was very wrong. The texture is very light and airy. It never felt heavy or hard to soak in. The Snail Secretion and Centella Asiatica worked quickly to absorb and soothe/ease the redness in my cheeks. It helped a lot in the initial days of using the toner when it was drying my skin and caused some minor redness.

Hello Pancake fans and welcome to a quick review of the @hello_skin_official Yes, I am toner & Have a good cream I got as part of the 10th gen beauty pioneers hosted by @cupidrop. I got to test these for about 10 days and here are my thoughts . . . Yes I am toner ($18 on cupidrop) ▫️AHA 5% a mix of glycolic and lactic acid ▫️It doesn't have much of a scent to me, but I almost smell something. It's quite watery and would do well either in a spray bottle or just using a cotton pad. I love any toner that has acids in it since it keeps me exfoliating without having to reach for an extra serum. The pH seems pretty low, somewhere around a 4 if I'm reading my strip correctly. In terms of efficacy I definitely feel the exfoliating/increased turnover with all the extra dry patches I'm getting 😆 which is good because I have some hyperpigmentation I'm trying to get rid of. . . . Have a good cream ($24 on cupidrop) ▫️features snail and centella Not to name drop another brand but this reminds me of the cosrx snail cream iirc. Just a more freshly scented version, which is odd cuz I can't place the smell on this one either. This cream isn't too heavy, definitely one I could see people use more during the spring and summer than fall or winter unless they leaned more towards oily skin. In fact I feel like with the more minimal formula with the soothing ingredients I feel like this could be a nice cream if you have some blemishes that were healing. . . . Overall: I actually really liked the toner. It's just the right about acid for those times when you want to gradually exfoliate/reap the benefits of daily AHA or just not bother with home peels or extra serums. The cream isn't bad, just not something I feel adds a newness to my routine #spoiledbyskincare. But I do feel like people who are looking at products similar to cosrx and are gentle this is definitely worth a shot! . . . . . . #cupidrop #jumiso #helloskin #beautifulpioneers #beautifulpioneers10thgeneration #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincareblogger #skincareproducts #peepingpomeranian #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #KoreanSkinCare #rasianbeauty #abcommunity #naturalskincare #natural #naturalbeauty #beauty #instabeauty
