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!

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 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!

Hi all! No, I’m not about to talk about wine in this post (though I do love wine). I will be talking about the most adorably packaged beauty product I have seen in a while: the Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint! Labiotte is an Korean brand which focuses on botanic based ingredients in their products. They also support the ideas of overall wellness and sustainability. The Chateau Labiotte Wine Tint promises long-lasting color as well as intense moisturization without a sticky feel. Let’s see if it is more than an incredibly cute container! I’ll be testing the color Nebbiolo Red. Continue reading “Labiotte Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint 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. They are owned by the same company as Scinic. Their Soothing Energy mask is an ampoule sheet mask which promises to calm damaged skin that has been irritated by environmental exposure. Since my skin has become quite sensitive to sun damage, I thought this sounded like a good one to try. Let’s get on to the details! Continue reading “Prelab Skin Energy Mask in Soothing Energy Review”
