The calendar summer is coming to an end, which can’t be said about our real summer. But it’s time to gather products to fight pigmentation. For this purpose, I will go over my last winter and my experiences in that matter. So, winter came and brought with her the cold and the heating units. The main problem became overdried combination skin, suffering from dehydration. After 4 months of symbiosis with certain products, I had to completely re-think my multistep skin care. (more…)
Playing house or experimenting on the kid.
And so my and the kid’s experiment has concluded. The main goal for the mom was to “cover up with the concealer” the fact that she didn’t teach her own offspring how to take proper care of the face. For the kid the goal was to receive a whole set of skincare products, which is also occasionally restocked with new items.
For one month, Alisa used the regimen of multi-step Korean skincare that I had selected for her. (more…)
I have a favorite peeling gel from Korean brand The Face Shop with papaya enzymes. Smart Peeling Milk Papaya Peeling cleanses the skin very gently, without causing any irritation or bad reactions. It smells very nice. A fruity fresh scent with a sour note. (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…)
