Times they are a'changing in the US for Asian Beauty fans! KBeauty is now available at CVS, Japan Post is banning sunscreen shipments, and Memebox US, the ridiculously well-funded US-based K-Beauty e-commerce site has come up with yet another way to piss off their customers. I haven't done a haul post in a long time because I'm … Continue reading Althea Haul & Unboxing
Of all the items Ippin was kind enough to send me to try, these three from Cotte were the ones I was super excited about.

Having a skincare blog and instagram changes the way I consume skincare. If I were using sheet masks in a vacuum, I'd probably never even think of dropping $7 on a single sheet mask, regardless of how much I like the artwork, but being able to share (and preserve?) that artwork on Instagram somehow makes all the … Continue reading Lululun Face Mask Rich Moisture Type 32 Sheets Review

There are just too many potential pitfalls and ways for a mask to go wrong. Like this mask. I really, really wanted to like … Continue reading Ciracle Snail Hydrogel Mask Review

I think this is because my first couple of experiences with sheet masks were so terrible that I've come to expect new sheet masks to be terrible. As a result, when I find a sheet mask I like, I buy A LOT … Continue reading May Coop Raw Sheet Review
These herbal clinic sheet masks from Evercos are some of my favorites! I've searched far and wide and could not find the ingredients for these sheet masks in English anywhere on the internet.
