Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil Perfect Review

Hi again! Sorry that I’m so late with this followup post! I’ve been busy with my sister visiting and getting my Etsy ready for holiday shopping. I’m finally back though! Today I’ll be doing the first review on products from my Fall Skincare Overhaul, the Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil Perfect. This cleansing oil from Etude House claims to not only deep cleanse the skin but also soften and balance it. It also promises a light texture. Let’s see how it worked!

Soko Glam Fall Skincare Overhaul!!!

Hi again so it’s that time of year again. The seasons are changing and it’s likely you have a neighbor (or you) that has already started decorating (or redecorating) for one of the many holidays in the upcoming months. Changes in weather also means a change in skincare for a lot of people. Lately my skin has been being a bit more irritable than normal so I’m going to be overhauling my skincare routine and blogging about it the entire way, starting off with my Soko Glam product haul! I got pretty much a whole new routine including a few of their Best of K-Beauty winners!

Etude Real Art Perfect Cleansing Oil

Oil cleansing is often touted as one of the pinnacles of a K-beauty routine, so naturally the first product I picked out was a new oil cleanser. This version from Etude House is supposed to not only cleanse but also hydrate the skin. I’ve already started using this cleanser and like it. (Review Here)

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

I chose the Benton Honest Cleansing Foam next because of its simple description and ingredients. I noticed that my skin hasn’t been retaining moisture like it used to. Because of that, I wanted to pick up a gentler cleanser to be sure I wasn’t stripping my skin.

Klavuu Perfect Pearlsation Cleansing Water

I had to pick up another cleansing water because they are one of my favorite beauty products because they are so multifaceted! I can use them as a makeup remover, light cleanser on rushed mornings or lazy nights, and this one can even double as a toner! As the name mentions, it contains pearl extracts to help hydrate and brighten the complexion! I’m really looking forward to this one!

Hanskin Real Complexion Hyaluron Skin Essence

This is the first of two products I picked  that are Soko Glam Best of K-Beauty Award winners. A theme for my skincare overhaul has been moisturizing products. This essence packs a punch when it comes to that with sodium hyaluronate  which can hold 1000x more moisture than water! It also has some really cool versatility so I’m looking forward to it!

Neogen H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray

Say hello to the second Best of K-Beauty winner I got! I’ve been looking for a new inexpensive serum and this one fit the bill. I always love innovative packaging and this serum comes in spray form so it’ll be something cool to try and convenient.

Skinfood Wash Off Rice Mask

Since I’ve been concerned about my skin being stripped of moisture, I picked up a more gentle exfoliating mask. The Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off mask is one of my favorites so I’m hoping I like this one too.

Manefit and Skinfood Sheet Masks

No k-beauty routine is ever complete without sheet masks. My eyes always need some extra care in winter so I got two regular masks and then one eye specific mask.

Etude House Eyebrow Contouring Multi Pencil

The last item in my haul while not skincare is another fun product. I needed and new eyebrow pencil and this version from Etude House has a pencil, brow gel, and brow highlight all in one!

So that’s all for today’s post! I’ll be going over most of these products one by one in the next few months so check back. I’ll update this post with links when each individual review is posted!

Do you change up your skincare routine seasonally? What are your best tips for keeping skin moisturized in winter? Leave your thoughts in the comments! And as always thanks for reading and bisous!

Maybelline The City Mini Palette x Shayla Quick Take & Swatches

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to do a quick little post about Maybelline’s collab with MakeupShayla on one of their City Mini Palettes. This isn’t a brand new product but I saw it on a quick trip to my pharmacy and couldn’t resist picking it up so I figured I’d write a bit about it!

My Rediscover and Reuse It Makeup Challenge! : Days 4-7

Hi everyone! I know I have gotten super behind with this post. I had some problems with my nose piercing so I haven’t been wearing makeup for a few weeks and then on top of that I’ve been feeling really unwell. Now though, I’ve finally gotten all of my looks finished and will show them here! For anyone who doesn’t know what this post is about, I challenged myself to take one of my old barely used eye shadow palettes and use it in my makeup looks for 7 makeup days in a row. You can check out the palette and challenge details in my first post here. Let’s get onto the final looks! Continue reading “My Rediscover and Reuse It Makeup Challenge! : Days 4-7”


Beauty Bakerie Mini-Haul and Swatches!

Hey Everyone! So Beauty Bakerie is one of those brands that I’ve been following on Instagram for forever and had been dying to try! So when they had a sale earlier this summer I took the plunge and bought one of their Makeup Kits, an EyesCream eye shadow, and a loose glitter. I’ll be giving some of my first impressions of the brand as well as product pics, descriptions, and swatches after the jump! Continue reading “Beauty Bakerie Mini-Haul and Swatches!”


Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask Review

Hi again! I’m excited to share my first review for a non-Korean skincare product, Kiehl’s Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask! Kiehl’s is a brand that I’ve known about for several years and have consistently heard good things about. (Fun fact: Expedition Everest was sponsored by the brand and the mountain climbers used Kiehl’s products to treat and protect their skin from the elements!) Ironically enough with having known about the brand, I didn’t actually buy this product myself; it was a gift from my Dad! He doesn’t excel at online shopping but knows my love for skincare so he picked it up at one of our local malls 🙂 This is a clay type mask which makes use of turmeric and cranberry seeds and is supposed to instantly illuminate and smooth skin. Let’s see how it worked! Continue reading “Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask Review”


My Rediscover & Reuse It Makeup Challenge! : Intro & Days 1-3

So you know how a lot of us who are into makeup and beauty have those products that sit unused collecting dust? Maybe you didn’t like it as much as you thought you would and threw it to the side. Or maybe you got distracted by all your new products and took a longer than expected break from it. Maybe you literally didn’t remember you had it!  It’s something that I’ve noticed more and more as I’ve continued buying newer things. So I decided, wouldn’t it be fun to try to put some of my forgotten products to use?!? That’s how I came up with what I’m calling my Rediscover & Reuse It Makeup Challenge!

Skin79 Natural 98 Yum Yum Cleanser Review

Hi and welcome to the first beauty related post on the new site! I’ve been adding a number of new products to my skincare routine as I’ve been running out of the old ones. I’ve also noticed that my skin has been a bit finicky and that I’ve needed to pair down a bit. In tune with that, I’ve been using the Skin 79 Natural 98 Yum Yum Cleanser in the Adlay variety. One of several things which make this cleanser different is that provides a two-in-one product for your double cleanse! The cleanser claims to be able to remove dirt and build-up from the face while also moisturizing and brightening the complexion. Let’s see how it fared!
