Where Have I Been?! [Update]

It’s been awhile!

 

Honestly, I had lost track of how much time had passed since I decided to take a blogging break. I thought I owed it to my readers and friends to let you know where I’ve been, what I have planned for the future, and what’s going on in my pretty little head. Read more

January ’16 Favorites

Hello all!

At the beginning of the new year I decided that I wanted to bring a series to the blog. I love doing review and haul posts, but I wanted a little more regularity to add in to the content. I love reading bloggers’ posts about monthly empties, hauls, and the like, but the one thing I really love to read is about their favorite products of the month.

I blog mostly about beauty products, which was obviously intended, but I have found that I like blogging about lifestyle topics, too. So, with my new series, I’ve decided to Read more

Beautynet Korea Haul and Review

Beautynet Korea Haul and Review

I’ve been hauling again. The joys of a new job! 😉

The reality is that this haul was a combination of need (I’m running out of a few things), pleasure (who doesn’t love a good haul?!), and winning some Paypal money from a giveaway.

This isn’t the first time I’ve used Beautynet Korea. I ordered one item from them a few weeks ago, just to test the waters. I had a pleasant experience so I decided to buy a larger order this time around. If you haven’t seen my “Where to Buy Your Korean Cosmetics” post yet, then please do. Not only do I list this website as a reliable place to find your fix, but there are many other websites and/or stores that you can go. Beautynet Korea is run by f2plus1, an experienced, reliable Ebay seller. I’ve bought from them many times, but just recently made the move to their actual website. I’ll cover why soon. 😉

Oh, Skinfood. Will our love affair ever end?

Probably not anytime soon. Today is all about Skinfood’s Black Pomegranate Volumizing Serum. I’ve reviewed the Black Pomegranate Toner and Cream (here) and really liked the line so far. The Black Pomegranate line of products is geared towards anti-aging and brightening.

If you didn’t get a chance to read my review of the other Black Pomegranate products (you should!), then I’ll let you know that black pomegranates are chock full of antioxidants, like many other fruits. In particular, black pomegranates contain high amounts ellagic acid (a type of antioxidant). This helps with dullness. It also contains ingredients like macadamia seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, and biotin that helps with brightness, wrinkles,and overall tone/texture. Read more

TonyMoly I’m Real Tea Tree Lotion–Review

This post contains affiliate links.

I’m a tea tree lover. I love the smell, I love the name, and I love that it shrinks up any acne that may have popped up on my skin within a matter of days (or hours…). So when I received this sample of Tony Moly’s I’m Real Tea Tree Sebum and Pore Lotion I was jumping for joy. Tea tree? Check. Control oil? Check. Shrink those pores? Check.

Skinfood Gold Kiwi Sunscreen–Review

Skinfood Gold Kiwi Sunscreen–Review

This post contains affiliate links.

I know that summer is wrapping up as we speak (err… type…) but sunscreen is so important year round. We are most aware of the sun’s rays when we are melting in the summer heat, but the UV damage can happen in the winter time, too.

That’s why I decided to go ahead and try the Skinfood Gold Kiwi Sun Cream for you guys and post my review. I did hesitate for a moment before deciding to schedule this because swimsuits and maxi dresses are being traded for scarfs and knee boots (at least for us in the Northern hemisphere!), but this is still an important and relevant product!

Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream–Review

Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream–Review

Well, the weekend is almost officially over. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and, to my US readers, I hope you had an amazing 4th of July!

Over the weekend I tried out the VIP Gold BB Cream from Skin79. Skin79 is a pretty well known Korean brand and, of course, Korea is known internationally for their amazing BB creams.

I’m not gonna lie… this was my first Korean BB cream. Sheet masks were actually my gateway drug product into the world of East Asian beauty. So, once I received this sample, I was pretty excited to give it a try. I stupidly didn’t think to take a photo of the sample before tearing it open because I was so damn excited so here’s a photo of the full size version courtesy of Google.

Hello! 🙂

It’s been a scorcher the past few days and I’ve been so thankful for the rain. I’m also doubly thankful for the weekend!

I wanted to share my experience with Skinfood’s Fresh Apple Sparkling Pore Emulsion. Emulsions are the moisturization… before night cream moiszurization. You can read more about that here.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today is just a short review. I’ve been swamped with school work (including exams! yikes!) and figuring out all of this moving mumbo jumbo. I did want to make sure to tell you guys about this product, though. 😉

I tried the TonyMoly Banana Hand Milk the other evening. It was just a sample so it was enough to use on my hands and lower arms. A friend of mine had used it before and told me that it smelled exactly like bananas. On that note: My hubby absolutely hates bananas (including the smell) so I had to wait until he was out to try it.
