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!

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! I’m all about unique packaging and applications so when I saw this I knew I had to try it! This is also one of the Soko Glam Best of K-beauty winners for 2017. 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”
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! Continue reading “Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil Perfect Review”
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!

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”
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! Continue reading “My Rediscover & Reuse It Makeup Challenge! : Intro & Days 1-3”
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! Continue reading “Skin79 Natural 98 Yum Yum Cleanser 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”
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”
Hi everyone! I’m still working on building up my eye shadow collection. So after giving their Wine Lip Tint a try (you can see my review here), I was super excited to give Labiotte‘s Wine Eye Shadow palette a try. 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!
