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!






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”


Tosowoong Aqua Tok Tok CO2 Fresh Mask Review


Hello all! Today I have a new review for the Tosowoong Aqua Tok Tok CO² Fresh Mask! So this mask has been sitting in my let’s call it beauty bar (which is really just half a dresser filled with nothing but skincare and makeup 🙂 ) for a while. I’m excited that I finally got around to using it. The Aqua Tok Tok Mask is a two step mask which promises to provide pore care, brighten skin, nourish the skin, and reduce wrinkles all while hydrating and being irritation free even for hyper-sensitive skin. That sounds like quite a bit to live up to, so let’s see how it fared! Continue reading “Tosowoong Aqua Tok Tok CO2 Fresh Mask Review”


Nooni Root Energy Cleansing Water Review

Hello all! I finally have a new skincare product to review again. The last time I was beauty shopping, I was running low on makeup remover. I had also been reading so much about cleansing waters. So I decided to try both of those things with the  Root Energy Cleansing Water by the Memebox private label brand Nooni. This Korean cleansing water promises gentle cleansing and makeup removal and even the ability to use it as a makeup brush cleaner! I’ll be doing an in depth review with photos and a little video to show how this product works! Continue reading “Nooni Root Energy Cleansing Water Review”


Goodal Natural Clear Mild Peeling Gel Review

Good day readers! I’ve used a couple of different skincare products from Goodal and have loved them all. So it was perfect when I heard about their new peeling gel just as my Skinfood exfoliator was running low. Their Natural Clear Mild Peeling Gel is a chemical exfoliator which promises to soften and smooth skin in just one use as it gently removes dead skin cells. Let’s get to the details. Continue reading “Goodal Natural Clear Mild Peeling Gel Review”


Review: Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil


Today’s review is gonna be all about oil cleansing or in this case the Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil. I’ve been using this as the first part of my double cleanse (an oil cleanser followed by a soap or foaming cleanser which is a common method in Asia) for a couple of months so I’ve really gotten an in-depth feel for it! Let’s get down to my pros and cons. Continue reading “Review: Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil”
