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!

My First Memebox! Hope Girl Haul and Mini-Reviews

Edit June 18, 2017: Memebox is no longer selling products direct on their website 🙁 I’m still keeping this post up though because of the overview of the Hope Girl products, which I still enjoy.

Hello again beauty lovers! So I’ve been a fan of Memebox for a while. I get so many of my Korean skincare and Korean makeup products from there. Still, I usually buy the products individually, so I’m excited to have finally gotten my first box! I decided to get the Hope Girl box, since I’d never tried anything by them and I was in need of a new makeup primer. It came with 5 full-sized products from the brand! Keep reading to see an overview of the Memebox box and mini-reviews of a few of the included products. Continue reading “My First Memebox! Hope Girl Haul and Mini-Reviews”

Mini-Haul: Cheers for Tonymoly!

Hi again!

Today’s post is about what I got during my first ever in person K-beauty shopping experience! Since I live in a tiny little town, k-beauty hasn’t made it here yet (let’s be real most trendy things haven’t). However, I was recently in Dallas, TX and was able to check out quite a few Korean stores and restaurants. I’ll write a post about the entire experience later 😉 But for now let’s check out what I got from the Tonymoly store in Carrollton, Texas! Continue reading “Mini-Haul: Cheers for Tonymoly!”
