July 2018 Favorites & Empties

July is over and was a crazy busy month for me! We're so close to being done with our home remodeling and I cannot wait until it's complete! I've had to put this blog and my social media posts on the back-burner, but I'll be back posting regularly soon. If you've been through home renovations then you know how tough they can be! In the mean time, it's time to share what I loved and emptied in July!

Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Vs. Cactus Soothing Gel | Review

If you’ve been following me long enough then you’ll recognize Nature Republic’s Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. It’s my favorite thing to use in combination with my beloved Klair’s Vitamin C Drops.  I never got around to giving it a proper review, but better late than never! I picked up the Cactus Soothing Gel during my last Korea trip so I figured this would be a good opportunity to review both and do a comparison between the two.

Innisfree Real Squeeze Green Tea Mask Review

When it’s hot out I don’t like heavy duty moisturizing sheet masks so I thought this would be the perfect time to use my Innisfree Real Squeeze Green Tea Sheet Masks. They're light and comfortable to wear in this summer heat, and they hydrate and soothe parched skin. I’ve tried a few of their Real Squeeze sheet masks in the past, which included rose, ginseng, and aloe. They’re affordable, decent quality, and great for daily use.

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).

Purito Fermented Complex 94 Boosting Essence Review

Spring is here and the weather is warming up again! When the new season rolls along it always makes me do a reset and refresh in all aspects of my life. Out with the old and in with the new! So, today I wanted to talk about a new skin care brand called PURITO. They very kindly sent over some products for me to try out so it’ll be a three-part review. (Be sure to scroll down to the bottom for a special discount offer!) First up is the Fermented Complex 94 Boosting Essence, but before I jump right in I'll share a brief company background.

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.
