Dramatic Skin Play: Sheet Masks

If there is anything that is quintessential to the K-beauty revolution it is the multi-step routine to achieve impeccably moisturized skin and sheet masks. Getting started with 5-10 different skincare products can be super intimidating but sheet masks are fun and super easy! That’s why they’re my favorite k-beauty goodie and have become a skincare staple. Today, I’ll tell you all about this perfect “facial in a flash” as well as a few places to find them!

Unsun Cosmetics Mineral Sunscreen Review

Hello again! So clearly time management is not my thing because I’m like 4-5 posts behind. My bad…I’m back though and today I’ll do a brief little review of Unsun Cosmetics Mineral Sunscreen! Unsun is a black-owned sunscreen brand started by Katonya Breaux, Frank Ocean’s mom. It’s tinted and formulated to work on all skin tones especially darker skin tones! I talked a bit before about how everyone including black people need sunscreen even in the winter (and all year really). That’s why it’s so awesome that there are finally some brands that cater to people with some melanin! Let’s get on to the review! Continue reading “Unsun Cosmetics Mineral Sunscreen Review”


Neogen H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray Review

So I’m finally back to the reviews of items from the my Winter Skincare Overhaul! Today I’ll be talking about Neogen’s H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray!

This serum is supposed to be a speedy easy application that brightens and makes skin more luminous. Let’s see how it works! Continue reading “Neogen H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray Review”


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!

Prelab Skin Energy Mask in Soothing Energy Review

Good day everyone! Today, I’m going to be reviewing Prelab‘s Skin Energy Mask in the variety soothing energy. Prelab seems to be relatively new Korean cosmetics and skincare brand.

The Ultimate Beauty ZZZsss: Korean Sleeping Packs

Hello again! Today, I am going to be posting more about Korean skincare specifically what is a sleeping pack. Before being introduced to K-beauty, I had never heard of such a thing. I’ll be honest; I really didn’t do much of anything to my face at night except maybe removing an occasional bit of makeup. However, now I am obsessed with them and am going to share why sleeping packs are so beneficial for your skin. Lastly, I’ll also touch on why night-time skincare is extra helpful for your skin (beauty sleep is a real thing!). Continue reading “The Ultimate Beauty ZZZsss: Korean Sleeping Packs”
