Posh Cold Cream Wash: Labiotte Marryeco Moisture Cleansing Serum Review

My skincare stash was large enough for my friends to judge me while moving a few months back, but it seems that I focus on creams and hydrating layers because after the move, I found myself with a single first cleanser. I borrowed my mother’s Lancome makeup remover to use while I was waiting for my purchase to arrive, but was glad to go back to a first cleanser.

I’m fond of oil cleansers in general, but while searching through the BBCosmetic site I found a product I’d never tried before–a cleansing serum. Further research showed that this product was similar to a cold cream, and I purchased it immediately, because I’d always been curious about the cold cream makeup removing method but the concept of cleanser stored in a jar squicked me out a bit. This seemed like the perfect way to try cream cleansing out!

September 2017 Roundup: Empties and Haul

It’s been a while since my last post, which is what I should change the name of this blog too, but better slowly than not at all! Here’s a post of all my beauty trash for the month of September, as an ode to my consistency as a blogger!

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Peel-Off Clay Nose Mask

The single worst smell I’ve experienced in my life, as someone who has three younger siblings and has experienced all the wonders of infant body fluids, is this DIY pore strip from one of Michelle Phan’s videos. Part of this horrendous stench is due to the fact that it’s a pore strip, and therefore meant to go directly on your nose. If you’re fasting or dieting I would maybe recommend trying this recipe just because nothing turns you off food more than this gelatinous… I don’t even know what to call it.

Olefactoury senses aside, one benefit that my thirteen year old self realised about this DIY pore pack is that because it’s a liquid, you have the opportunity to customise the pore pack shape. I enjoyed being able to take the mask up the bridge of my nose to the space between my brows, where I am also prone to dark sebaceous filaments. I no longer make these DIY pore masks due to laziness and choosing to rely on professionals for my skincare products now, but when I saw The Face Shop’s Jeju Volcanic Lava Peel-Off Clay Nose Mask I immediately bought it–without even looking for reviews–because of the ability to customise pore strip shapes again.

Oh Honey, Oh Baby: I’m From Honey Mask Review

As a sidenote, every time I put this mask on I like the play the following song just because it fits.

As a bonus, this is a nice cover.

Coming home to chicken nuggets: Zeroid Intensive Cream Review

A while back I read an autobiography about a woman who’s brother was a professional chef at a five star restaurant but came home everyday and ate Costco microwave chicken nuggets.

Zeroid Intensive Cream is my chicken nugget.

There’s nothing exciting about the plain white packaging, though I definitely appreciate the tube over a jar, and the ingredients don’t feature any vaguely-maybe-effective-organism-parts like starfish urine. That being said, it’s nice to have a reliable product that does its job–does it very well in fact–always there for you. Intensive Cream is a lipid, a cream, an occlusive, sometimes a one-product routine, and a saviour for my dry skin.

My Solution to Having Super Dry Skin and Being Active Happy: Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid Review

This will be a shorter, more rambley, review-esque post mostly because this product has already been discussed so thoroughly. It’s one of the KBeauty products available at Sephora, for their horrendously marked up prices, as a testament to its popularity. I wanted to focus a little less on the product breakdown, and more about how I’ve incorporated it into my routine besides just slapping it in.

Included in this post:

  1. Basic overview
  2. Why I use this product
  3. How I use this product at different points in my routine

Celebrity Skinvestigation 1: Integrating Massage Creams into a Skincare Routine // ft. Sistar’s Soyou and the About Me Skin Tone Up Massage Cream

Celebrity Skinvestigation

Long story short, I wanted to start a series on this blog looking at celebrity skincare routines and products they’ve agreed to promote. Why? It sounds a bit counter-intuitive, to look into products people are paid to promote when most beauty junkies have been growing increasingly annoyed with the consumerism theology in marketing campaigns and tired of sponsored blog/vlog content, but these two worlds just naturally came together for me because I follow entertainment media, and I follow skincare releases. I’m not taking these stars at their word, but using them as a stepping stone to introduce myself to new brands/products; this method of research also allows me to take an interesting angle during reviews–what was the marketing behind this product? Why did they frame the product in this light? How does the company’s vision for the product align, or conflict with, the product’s place in my own skincare routine?

To kick off this series, I wanted to focus on a celebrity with a lot of content to work with, so I started by watching old episodes of Get it Beauty. Not old enough that it was more beauty show than advertisement, but old enough that someone will probably scoff and call me late to the game with this one. I concede, but will be reviewing About Me’s Skin Tone Up Massage Cream, pimped by the gorgeous Soyou of SISTAR,  regardless!

Facetory January Review: Leaders, Innisfree, Tony Moly, and Skin Day

I’ve finished the Masktory January sheet mask box officially, which reached me around two weeks ago near the 10th, and thought I’d review them all again like last week! This post will be significantly shorter, because I don’t feel the need to go very indepth into the Innisfree and Tony Moly masks, but they all have mini reviews.

Included in this post:

  • Summary of sheet masks provided (claims, ingredients, etc.)
  • Personal experience with sheet masks
  • Overall experience with this box
