I used to swim 2 hours a day, 11 months out of the year, and I played water polo before my high school even had a team, so when I moved to Southern California and decided to take up surfing, I assumed it would come naturally. I have probably a record number of battle scars … Continue reading COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review
See my January empties here. I just wrapped up part 1 of a project at work that has completely taken over my life the past couple of weeks. I'm hoping to make some progress on the backlog of posts I have in my draft file, but in the meantime, here is a quick rundown of … Continue reading February Empties
The problem with shopping for things from Korea is sometimes I don't realize how much stuff I've ordered until I receive everything. This is how I ended up with all these Chosungah22 products. I'm usually very cautious about ordering too many things from a single brand, especially one I have ZERO experience with, because things … Continue reading Chosungah22 Mineral Toning Essence Review
This order arrived last week from RoseRoseShop in what seemed like record time! I haven't gotten a chance to try some of these things but this is a fun haul (I think) plus It's been awhile since I've posted a haul so let's remedy that! What I Ordered A'pieu X Doraemon Airfit Cushion A'pieu X … Continue reading RoseRoseShop Haul! Doraemon and Sleeping Packs Galore!
I feel like this is THE product for people who think they’re missing out. For example, if you’ve heard about the wonders of horse oil but can’t get over the idea of dead horses, this is a decent, vegan (there's no horse, but there is snail) alternative. If you find the texture of lotion or cream to … Continue reading Neogen Dermatology Dual Layer Ceramide Oil Review
TesterKorea is famous for two reasons: cheap samples of expensive stuff and insanely slow shipping speeds. Due to the latter reason, they've been blacklisted in my mind. Today, while shopping around for the Mondrian Missha cushion, I found myself on TK's pages and was really surprised by the breadth of their selection! Here are some … Continue reading PSA: TesterKorea Now Carries Cremorlab, Whamisa, The Yeon, and a few other Miscellaneous Good Finds!
This is one of the first things I've bought since I started marathoning watching Get it Beauty. The show is a bit ridiculous, but as a 25 year old who is urgently trying to learn how to adult makeup, it's very useful. It's also a great way to discover new products that are popular in Korea! … Continue reading Guerisson 9 Complex Essence
God, this essence would be a lot more exciting if it contained real dragon blood. Alas, dragons do not actually exist and the stuff in this essence isn't blood at all, but tree sap, but it's kind of an interesting ingredient nevertheless. This essence comes in a red, glass pump bottle. I feel like an … Continue reading Secret Key Dragon Bloody Essence
In part 1, I wanted to see what the cost savings for buying samples in place of full size products were. In short, it's a lot. In my day job I have a good amount of experience with variability control and wanted to know if the sample packages live up to their advertised volume of product. … Continue reading Samples Part 2
I’ve been running low on enthusiasm for Asian skincare products as of late, due in part to the number of products everyone else seemed crazy about but didn't do much for my skin. But it seems like the tides are turning! First with Goodal’s waterest lasting water oil and now with this terrific and economical … Continue reading Purebess Special 100% Galactomyces Extract Essence
