PSA/Rant: Do NOT trust Muji Ingredient Stickers

Awhile ago, I posted about the Muji sensitive skin cleansing oil, still one of my favorites. Since then, I have gone through three different bottles of it (in various sizes) and have noticed that there are (at least) two versions. After cross-referencing the English ingredients (provided on stickers applied to the bottles), it seemed that … Continue reading PSA/Rant: Do NOT trust Muji Ingredient Stickers

Manyo Factory Bifida Complex Review

manyo factory bifida ferment complex review

There are some brands I become obsessed with before I even try any of their products. This is not one of those brands. Manyo Factory, with it's weird name and Paula's-Choice-esque (aka boring) packaging, didn't really interest me at all until Margaret, Joan, and seemingly everyone on Instagram started raving about their Galactomyces 10X The … Continue reading Manyo Factory Bifida Complex Review

Astalift Cleansing Oil Review

Astalift Cleansing Oil review

For the longest time, all I wanted was a cleansing oil that worked. Something that removed all my makeup, didn't leave any residue on my face, and didn't break me out. After a comically long struggle, I found one, and I still think it's the best no-nonsense, super functional, great value, oil cleanser out there. … Continue reading Astalift Cleansing Oil Review

Jungle Botanics Forest Leaves Cooling Shampoo and Warming Treatment Review

I've been watching a lot of David Attenborough's Life on Netflix before bed, which if you haven't seen, is INSANE.

Mizon Hyaluronic Acid 100 Ampoule Review


Mizon is one of the first brands that completely blew my mind when I first discovered the world of Korean Beauty. I remember coming back from a desert camping trip that was a lot of fun, but left my skin feeling and looking parched and worn out.

Femmue Global Youth Spring Lotion Review

femmue global youth spring lotion review

My skin doesn't get very oily, even during summer, but it does get sweaty, which is made worse 2309 times by the fact that my boyfriend doesn't have air conditioning at his place.  Whenever I stay with him, I've been relying heavily on emulsions (moisturizers that have the texture in between a toner and cream) … Continue reading Femmue Global Youth Spring Lotion Review

Aromatica Calendula Juicy Cream Review

aromatica calendula juicy cream

While laying in bed the other night, unable to sleep, it occurred to me that the rise of Korean beauty might not have been possible without Kim Kardashian. Just hear me out! To the casual observer, a 10-step beauty routine may seem excessive, but it hardly compares to Kim. Kim Kardashian is the ultimate 10-step … Continue reading Aromatica Calendula Juicy Cream Review
