So I Tested a Bunch of Sheet Masks and Here’s What I Think

Sheet masks have become super popular in skincare these days.  I like them because they provide a potent burst of ingredients geared towards a certain issue.  They come as a presaturated sheet inside a package and you open it up and stick it on your face.  Then you literally saturate your face with vitamins, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, hydrators etc.  And unlike…

Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream Review

Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream was a full-on dry, flaky skin miracle for me this past winter.  It is a very thick, stiff textured cream that provides amazing moisture.  It also helps reduce signs of irritation (redness, flakiness etc).  Despite the thick texture, it cause no breakouts or clogged pores.  This is likely due to the fact that 60%…

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence Review

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is one of the various essences made by Korean beauty company Cosrx.  This is one of their heaviest, most hydrating essences.  It has a thicker texture than the Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence, which is quite watery (Full review HERE).  This is more of a very thin gel.  I found 3 pumps to be…

Boscia Tsubaki Oil Infused Exfoliating Powder Review

I have been using Boscia Tsubaki Oil Infused Exfoliating Powder a few mornings a week for a couple months now, and I quite like it.  After testing out Tatcha’s Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder (full review HERE), I knew I wanted to try out as many other powder cleansers as I could.  Powder cleansers are totally awesome, and I’m now…

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil Balm Review

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil Balm is a really effective makeup remover that comes as a solid balm, but melts into an oil cleanser when warmed in your hands.  When massaged onto dry skin, the black balm dissolves all makeup, even waterproof eyeliner and mascara.  Then when you start adding water, it turns into a milky liquid and rinses…

Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Review

When I finally found a seller on Amazon that would ship Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence to Canada, I bought it immediately. This stuff has such a huge internet presence, I knew I had to try it out. This essence has a very watery consistency and is meant to be used after toner, but before serums and other treatments.…

Empties – December 2016: My Final Thoughts on Stuff I’ve Finished

Something I’ve been meaning to do ever since starting this blog is give my final thoughts about products once I finish using them up.  I started the blog in May 2016, and I’ve been saving my empties ever since.  Originally, I planned to do this every few months, but I’ve been procrastinating…so this is going to be a long post.…

Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder Review

When I started using Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder I did not get what I had expected.  I had expected a powder exfoliant (something like the Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant).  But it is so much better than that. Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder is actually a powder that, when water is added, becomes a lovely foam cleanser.  It…

Cosrx Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion Review

Cosrx Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion (with Birch Sap) is a super lightweight lotion.  It is a fantastic option for all skin types.  But is particularly good for anyone with oily, acne-prone skin or those with dehydrated skin.  It is intensely hydrating, non-irritating, non greasy and won’t cause breakouts.  The lotion itself is white and translucent, nearly a gel texture.  But not…
