Etude House Green Tea Nose Pack–Review

Etude House Green Tea Nose Pack–Review

I’m not a huge nose pack/strip connoisseur. In an attempt to rid my nose of blackheads during my teen years, I tried dozens of different nose strips. My mom actually gave me some of these Etude House Green Tea Nose Packs to try as she preferred another brand. I didn’t expect too much, but I was quite surprised!

Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion–Review

Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion–Review

With my normal to oily skin, I use my Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream in the Summer, but use mostly cushion compacts in the Winter because cushion compacts are more moisturizing to me. I’ve tried the IOPE Air Cushion Compact and really loved it, so I wanted more.

The Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion is a pretty well known product in the k-beauty world. It seems that people either love it or they don’t care for it. I received a deluxe sample of it a while back (enough for a few weeks’ worth or applications) and felt ready to share my views on it.

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

Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in BE106–Review

Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in BE106–Review

On a recent order for a fresh batch of makeup and skin care, I purchased the Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in BE106. Admittedly, I didn’t need a new lipstick–I have a collection in my bag already–but I’d read such great reviews that I had to try it myself.

Spoilers: I may be in love.

Beauty When You’re Under the Weather

Beauty When You’re Under the Weather

If you’ve been following me on social media, you probably know that I have been sick recently. There’s nothing worse than an illness, especially during the holidays, to bring you down. When you’re sick, the last thing on your mind is your beauty routine–it should be on resting and getting better. But your appearance can be an indicator of the health of your body and, once you’re well again, you want the health of your skin to be close to normal.

Below are some of the things I do (and did recently) to help myself and my skin until I could kick that sinus infection’s rear. Disclaimer: This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. Please consult with your doctor and use your own judgment for medical needs. Read more

To look my best around this time of year I, of course, focus on how I can switch up my skin care for my changing skin. This time of year, it’s growing colder and darker. I can’t stand being cold so the heat gets turned up and the fire is sparked. But with rising temperatures, the humidity is zapped from the air, causing my skin to dry out. Usually my skin is normal to oily, but in the winter it becomes a lot more dry. Below are products that I like to use to combat dry winter skin to make sure that my skin is #HolidayHaute and I look my best!

Sheet Mask Marathon Wrap Up & Giveaway!

Sheet Mask Marathon Wrap Up & Giveaway!

Well, this is it. I hope you enjoyed the Sheet Mask Marathon! I put a ton of blood, sweat, and tears into it. I showcased eight different sheet masks types and brands, but there are so, so many more! I hope this has helped you start your journey of sheet masking, if you’re new to it, and maybe find something new if you’ve tried some before.

Here’s links to all of the days if you want to look back on any of them:

Intro

Day 1 Etude House Tea Tree

Day 2 Nature Republic Snail Solution

Day 3 Mediheal WHP Charcoal and Mineral

Day 4 Vanedo Marine Algae

Day 5 My Beauty Diary Diamond & Caviar

Day 6 Freeset Donkey Milk Healing

Day 7 Annie’s Way Seaweed

Day 8 Skin Factory Real Honey Ampoule

If I had to choose a favorite, it would probably be the Mediheal WHP Charcoal and Mineral mask that was featured on Day 3. I have since bought a whole other stash of just these to rescue me when my skin is dull, dry, and flaring up. Love them!!

Now, the fun part…

Whoo hoo! Day 1 of my Sheet Mask Marathon. I’ll be highlighting some sheet masks that I’ve used during this week to show some of the many different options you have for sheet masks. For info about what’s going on, read my  intro here.

Etude House is a Korean brand that markets skincare products as well as makeup and even some accessories. They specialize in cute and pretty packaging. I’ve read that their demographic is more geared towards teens and young women, but I feel like a lot of women enjoy the princess feel from time to time.
