The most bulletproof Korean sunscreen Atomy.

It’s been a long time since I’ve held checkers *groans*. I haven’t had a chance to write reviews lately. But! I can’t keep hiding my love for Innisfree Whitening pore skin from you much longer.
As I’ve written before, some time ago I found barely visible pigmentation spots on my cheeks. Since then, my purchases have shifted toward really whitening products and not just simply those that even out the overall skin tone. (more…)
I found a replacement for my irreplaceable summer cream Mizon All in One.
I have capricious sensitive skin with an oily t-zone. Picking an appropriate cream is difficult. But I liked this one from the first use. I need the cream to get absorbed completely, not make the skin oily and prevent inflammation. Eyenlip Black Snail All in One cream does all of that. (more…)
A beloved subject again – hair – from the outsider’s perspective it might look thick and amazing naturally. I hear such compliments often, but it’s a very serious, daily task for me.

It is no secret that the most popular facial products in Korea aim at lightening pigmentation and anti-aging.
An interesting fact – you won’t find a serum “for women after 40 years old” or cream “for aging skin 60+” from Korean manufacturers. Koreans believe, that one should first and foremost focus on the state of the skin, not on the “passport age”. Some need anti-aging care at 25, others – only at 40. (more…)
It can be quite hard for a beginner to come up with a full routine. I hope that ready-to-use, and, most importantly, working routines will help you in correctly picking out skincare products.
In our Korean Tricks group Irine Kor recently started a flash mob – “A relay race of one day of summer skincare or OMG! All of this has been on my face in one day!”
19 ladies from 8 countries shared their Korean skincare routines. For ease of navigation, the routines are grouped by skin types and concerns. Let’s go 🙂 (more…)
