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.

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!

Etude House Double Lasting Foundation Review

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be reviewing the Double Lasting Foundation by Etude House in the shade Amber. This is the first base product that I’ve tried from Etude House! I have a few of the their eye shadows and lip products and love them! Their Double Lasting Foundation is supposed to be saturated with pigment for effective coverage as well as extra adhesion so it doesn’t break, streak, or swipe off easily. More details after the jump! Continue reading “Etude House Double Lasting Foundation Review”


Pony Effect Master Eye Palette Holographic Pastel Review

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been a bit lax with new content but I’ve been working on a lot of things and have been a bit short on cash overall. I’m happy to be back with a new review for the Pony Effect Master Eye Palette in the theme Holographic/Pastel! I’ve been wanting to try some Pony Effect products since the launch (I still have my eyes on the Customizing Lip Palette). For those who don’t know, Pony is a Korean makeup artist. She has done makeup for the likes of Kpop star CL among others! She launched her Pony Effect label in conjunction with Memebox a few years ago. The colors in this palette are subdued with a shimmering twist! They’re unlike most of the colors I normally use and seemed great for Spring and Summer. The shades are supposed to be smooth and double as highlighters. Let’s see how it fared! Continue reading “Pony Effect Master Eye Palette Holographic Pastel Review”

I got the version Sweet Wine which features a range of pink tones. Their Sweet Wine Eye Shadow palette promises a silky smooth shadow texture even with the pearl glitter shades as well as versatile rich colors. Let’s see how it fared!
