Goodbye 2015!

Goodbye 2015!

2015 was definitely a whirlwind of a year for me personally. The 2015 Spring semester of college seems like it was ages ago. Some great and likewise not-so-great things happened this year, but I try to continue with the thought that everything happens for a reason.

2015 was also the year that I decided to try blogging. I went into it with the intentions of just having a little place to put my thoughts down, but a few hundred followers later and I’m in awe. I really can’t believe that so many people think that my blog is interesting enough to subscribe to. I’m truly thankful for each one of you and hope that I can make The Pretty Pomegranate even better and brighter in the new year.

I wish you all the very best and will see you in 2016!

The Face Shop Rice Oil Cleanser–Review

The Face Shop Rice Oil Cleanser–Review

It seems like I always end up trying trends backwards. I was addicted to sheet masks before I even tried my first Korean BB cream, I didn’t like matte lipsticks until after their peak, and I tried a “solid” version of an oil cleanser before an actual oil. Oy vey!

If you hadn’t heard, oil cleansers are great for those with oily skin because oil breaks down oil. It may sound counter intuitive, but cleansing with an oil at the end of the day can help to sweep away all that excess sebum that has built up. Oil cleansers also break down your stubborn, oil based makeup with ease, thus preparing your skin for the second cleanse step: the foaming cleanser. But we’ll leave the foam for another day. 😉

My first actual oil cleanser experience was with The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil. Phew! That’s a mouthful.

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.
