I have combination, sensitive skin prone to redness. Oily sheen, pores clog up immediately, when it’s hot, small pimples appear. Pink undertone and a few capillaries close to the skin on the cheeks. Easily irritable skin, the face often turns red after a shower and when I’m nervous. (more…)
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.

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…)
My turn has come to share my Odyssey. Let’s start with the source data: 38 year old combination skin, which didn’t know that creams existed until 35… As the result, we have what we have: crow’s feet around the eyes, uneven and unhealthy skin tone, post acne spots from years of periodic breakouts, scars from the same thing, forehead wrinkles and nasolabial folds, making the whole face look like a pug on bad days, without the cuteness factor. Woof, this feels like a confession. (more…)
