Get Rid of Cracked Feet + Heels | The Face Shop Smile Foot Peeling Mask Review

Dry, cracked heels and feet are a nuisance. They ruin your bed sheets, can be embarrassing, and are just so uncomfortable! Kevin and I have dry feet, but his are like pumice stones. When you can feel a hardened layer of skin under your foot, you know it’s time to exfoliate. If you like to use a Ped Egg or something similar, please stop. Instead, use a foot peeling mask! I picked up these Smile Foot Peeling Masks at my local Face Shop and they are life changing!

Jayjun Anti-Dust Therapy Mask Review

I never thought I’d say this, but I think I have too many products. I spent some time going through what I have and what I wanted to review (pretty much everything) and felt so behind. I should’ve reviewed some of these things last year! Anyway, several months ago I reviewed Jayjun’s Anti-Dust Whitening Mask and now I’m finally getting to its gorgeous twin, the Anti-Dust Therapy Mask.

Get Rid Of Bacne ft. Klairs Manuka Honey & Choco Body Soap

I’m embarrassed to say that I still get bacne/back acne/body acne from time to time. I don’t treat the skin on my body as well as the skin on my face, which I’ve realized is a mistake. Since warm weather is coming around soon, I want to make sure my body is spot free so I can wear my summer clothes with confidence. I picked up the Klairs Manuka Honey & Choco Body Soap when I was shopping in A-Land in hopes that it would be an easy way to get rid of bacne. Let’s see if this bacne wash works!

How To: Natural Way To Heal Pitted Acne Scars

Hello, hello! As you can tell from the title, I’m writing about my experience treating acne scars in a natural, laser-free way. I’ve wanted to have acne scar revision treatments for as long as I can remember, but after countless hours of research on different treatment options and several failed consultations, I was forced to look for an alternative. (I was advised not to pursue laser treatments because I was considered high risk for adverse reactions.) I needed a less invasive way to heal my scars or at least improve the look of them. I have been seeing an acupuncturist on a regular basis since October 2017. My appointments were originally aimed at just health maintenance, but once I knew lasers weren’t an option for me I turned to acupuncture treatments for my acne scars. Keep on reading for my experience, and before and after photos!

Sulwhasoo Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Soothing Mist Review

Hydrating mists have always seemed a bit gimmicky to me. If you’ve been keeping up with beauty news then you might’ve heard them saying mists actually dry out your skin. I tried misting while on a long haul flight to Asia many years back and I remember feeling extra parched at the end of it. Well, this time around I discovered a great mist and an even better way to use them. Say hello to Sulwhasoo’s Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Soothing Mist! This mist is part of the Hydro-Aid collection, which is used to address hydration concerns (review of the Moisturizing Soothing Cream is here).

Neogen Real Cica Pad Review & VS. COSRX

Aanyoung haseyo! As I’m typing this, I still feel the same giddy, happy feelings over my Korea haul as I did back then, which I’m gradually working my way through. I was at Olive Young when I grabbed this jar of Neogen’s exfoliating pads. I never saw it before and figured it was new so I just purchased it on a whim, and boy am I glad I did. Neogen’s Real Cica Pads are freaking amazing.

Whamisa Organic Flowers Foaming Gel Review

I’m not too much of an all-natural, organic beauty product user since past experience with them has not been great. Enter Whamisa. I always heard about Whamisa, but I was never tempted to try the brand so I didn’t know too much about them. (They’re all about using fermented, organic ingredients and many of their products are vegan or vegetarian friendly.) When I was shopping at Creemare in Gangnam they gifted me Whamisa’s Organic Flowers Foaming Gel as part of their promotion. So, today I’m going to review this cleanser and see how it measures up to my HG Su:m 37 Rose Stick Cleanser.

The pimple gods still like to throw a few spots at me from time to time so ever since I discovered pimple patches, I’ve been obsessed with finding good ones.  There are few to no options here at home so when I was in Korea I picked up all the patches I came across to test them out. I tried them bare faced and under makeup to see which ones performed best. Keep on reading to see how it all went down!

Sulwhasoo Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Soothing Cream Review

When it comes to moisturizers, I always look for something that is lightweight, non-greasy, deeply hydrating, and absorbs quickly. I can only think of one moisturizer that I used in all my years of skincare that met that criteria, and that is Missha’s Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream. But, when I was at the Sulwhasoo Spa I was introduced to something that I fell in love with instantly. Sulwhasoo’s Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Soothing Cream, welcome to the skincare family!

Troiareuke ACSEN U.V Protector Essence Review

Spring is coming, guys! As much as I appreciate the coziness that winter brings, I love warm weather and am so excited for it! There was a warm weather spell last month that put everyone in shorts and t-shirts.  This meant my Mediheal sunscreen was too heavy, so I searched my stash of sunscreens and picked out the Troiareuke ACSEN U.V Protector Essence to try.
