Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream Review

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…

Hylamide C25 Vitamin C Booster Serum Review

Hylamide C25 Vitamin C Booster Serum is an effective vitamin C serum at a really good price.  Most vitamin C serums are around $100 per ounce.  But this one is a steal at just over $30.  The vitamin C in this formula is also a super stabilized form of vitamin C, so it won’t oxidize on you after only a…

May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate Review
