Opening new products can be exciting in a lot of different ways. With some brands (Blossom Jeju, Papa Recipe), I eagerly anticipate the delicious scents the product is sure to reveal. With cushion foundations, the joy lies in dipping a finger (or rubycell puff if you're good) into an untouched sponge. With Swanicoco products, particularly … Continue reading Swanicoco Swan Cream Review
I haven't done an empties post since February, so there are lots of items in this post! Muji Sensitive Skin Cleansing Oil Previously reviewed. This is the best cleansing oil I've ever used! Acwell Bubble-Free pH Balanced Cleanser Previously reviewed. This cleanser doesn't play nicely with my face so I used it up as a hand … Continue reading March and April Empties
A few months ago, I wrote a post comparing three different snail creams. Because I am a maximizer, I've since went out and tried 5 more. maximizing involves spending more resources to find a better option than the best one found so far. Snail secretion filtrate is one of the cornerstone ingredients of Korean Skincare. It's … Continue reading Snails Madness! A Comparison of Snail Creams by Mizon, Cosrx, Scinic, Caolion, Skinwatchers, and More!
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
Whereas I almost always use shampoo and conditioner products from the same product line, I almost never do so with skincare products. Sure, I've used the Benton snail essence with the steam cream, and the Sooryehan ginseng juice essence with the cream (review coming soonish but don't hold your breath), but most of the time … Continue reading TheFaceShop White Seed / BlanClouding Foam Cleanser, Toner, Lotion, Serum, and Moisture Cream Impressions
WHY I BOUGHT IT Horse fat. For all you vegans or horse lovers out there, now is the time to stop reading! For everyone else, horse fat is known to have many benefits for skin (which I’ll get into a little bit later), one of which is its similarity to the oil produced by human … Continue reading Sungwon Maeux Horse Oil Cream Review
Please see here for my updated snails comparison post.
At a food festival a few years back, my friend spotted a natto vendor and (hardly able to contain her laughter) excitedly urged me to try a sample. I pride myself in not scaring easily when it comes to food, so I grabbed a sample and plopped it in my mouth, only to immediately spit it … Continue reading Whamisa Organic Flowers Water Cream with Natto Review
I bought this water oil almost immediately after seeing it on fanserviced’s instagram and it’s the best thing I've found in a long, long time for my desert dry skin. Goodal Skincare Goodal (a play on "good" and "all") is the skincare arm of Club Clio, which also includes Clio Professional (of Kill Black eyeliner … Continue reading Goodal Waterest Lasting Water Oil
I’ll keep this quick because there is already a lot written about these two products. I was really excited to try out this combo due to the nearly unanimously positive reviews, but sadly the products didn't live up to the hype. ESSENCE First the essence. Thin, jelly like texture. It feels really nice to apply … Continue reading Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence and Steam Cream
