Blog about Korean cosmetics, reviews and articles
I finished off two of my Japanese serums – with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid – and immediately found a replacement, several times cheaper, but with no sacrifices in quality.
I have tested samples of these serums a long time ago and was so pleased that I decided to buy the full sizes. (more…)
There’s a time and place for everything. The time to cleanse and remove makeup, and the time to transform.
Today is a story about eyebrow pencil, lash lengthener and mascara. A very easy and natural makeup. It’s as if it weren’t there, and yet it’s there. (more…)
I’m currently using three products with BHA from Korean manufacturers. I thought that’s not a bad reason to talk about this wonderful ingredient.
So, what is it? It’s an acid (surprise surprise) which can reach deep into the pores and regulate sebum production. (more…)
And then I realized that I’m a maniac 🙂
I’ve been planning to post about my morning and evening routines for a long time.
I hope that my attempt to systematize all of my korean tricks will be successful and I’ll piece this puzzle together 🙂 (more…)
Skin Republic is a Korean brand that is already well known in European countries. I buy their sheet masks at a pharmacy in the middle of nowhere in Finland. Ok, it’s not Europe, but not exactly Asia either.
Skin Republic combines the latest technological advances in the skincare field with natural regenerating ingredients. It provides great sheet masks for face, eyes, neck and decolletage, and also hands and feet. (more…)
A huge brag from my mom!
Three months ago I put together Korean skincare regimen for my mom, and now she sends me daily selfies and says she gets younger every day.
About her: 61 years old, aging skin prone to dryness and pigmentation.
Before – Nivea cream morning and nights and complete neglect of sun protection.
Now – uses all steps of Korean skincare daily (I made her cheat sheets for morning and evening routines).
In two months, the skin became refreshed, hydrated and visibly lighter. (more…)
What should be chosen for delicate, sensitive, acne and inflammation-prone teenage skin?
Let’s attempt to discuss that.
First of all, I want to warn you that even if you buy lots of good treatments, there is no guarantee that the child will immediately agree to use any of them. Have patience, don’t force it, don’t bring attention to the imperfections. Perhaps, the teen doesn’t see and doesn’t notice them, and you can create a new issue for him, make him think about his imperfections, and introduce a new inferiority complex. Be sensitive and careful with the feelings of your children. (more…)
A new month is here, meaning a new beauty box is ready for my kid.
For those of you who doesn’t know about our tradition – to avoid throwing away countless unneeded bottles and testers from existing beauty boxes, I put together my own beauty box for my kid. (more…)
It all started with a sample, as usual. Curse the samples!
￼Before that, bb creams were just another mystery to me. I haven’t used foundation in years – I didn’t like the stuff I tried as a teenager, and by the time my teenage breakouts cleared, powder was sufficient. But, as the saying goes, there is no limit to perfection. (more…)
I am 28, have combination skin, freckles, and one forehead wrinkle (yes, one).
I bought this cleanser for two important reasons – a pretty packaging and a good discount on eopenmarket.com (but their shipping isn’t free). You can buy this on eBay or Amazon.
I must have been craving summer and watermelons. (more…)
