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

Fast Masking: Mirae 8 Minute Extreme Hydro NMF Sheet Mask Review

Sheet masking is a gateway drug to many for Asian Beauty and it has a lot of benefits–the convenience of not having to wash anything off afterwards, the no-mess single serving packets, the pampering spa-esque experience, and of course the extra hydration boost that’s especially helpful since it’s winter here in the good ol’ Northern hemisphere. One definite downside to masking, however, it the long-ass time it can take and the limited mouth-mobility while we do so (I am a compulsive snacker). And that’s where the Mirae 8 Minute masks come in!

I saw these on Crystal Cove Beauty in November of 2016 and was curious about the advertised 8 minute masking period, which is significantly shorter than the 30-45 minutes I usually keep a sheet mask on. Are these just normal masks you take off after 8 minutes? Do they provide as much moisture as a 40 minute masking session? What makes these masks different? Curious, I bought a couple and here we are with the review!

Included in the post:

  1. Basic Information and Claims
  2. Experience: 8 minute Masking Session
  3. Experience: As long as possible masking experience

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
