Oh, BB: Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream Review

Sadly, it’s about that time of the year when I run out of my current BB cream. Now, I’m not a makeup addict as much as a skincare addict—I pretty much, like, buy one or two makeup things every year or so and then receive Sephora rejects from my more addicted friends. However, I’ve been lazily shopping around for a new BB, … More Oh, BB: Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream Review

They may be old news to those who already enjoy Asian beauty (AB)/Asian skincare, but skincare companies are continuously trying to innovate in order to keep it interesting and relevant. Can’t blame ’em! I mean, after a while, I might even get tired of My Scheming. Bahaha, just kidding. That’s impossible! I recently … More Mummy Mia!

The Hero Your Face Deserves (But Not All of the Time): About Micellar Water + Son & Park Beauty Water Review

…Because it’s not our hero. It’s a silent cleanser. A micellar water. All outdated movie references aside—I finally finished up a bottle of the Asian beauty favorite, Hada Labo Gokujyun Cleansing Foam. Unfortunately, I have little self control when I’m desperate for a routine replacement, so I’ve now accumulated too many cleansers, including (some are from one of my routine … More The Hero Your Face Deserves (But Not All of the Time): About Micellar Water + Son & Park Beauty Water Review

Japanese Shampoo Brush + 3 Easy-Peasy Hair-Washing Tips

Don’t tell anyone, but I need to take a break from reviewing sheet masks. Oh dear.
