**Featured image courtesy of Google** This is a post I originally wrote several months ago. Since then, I’ve done research and wanted to share my thoughts with you that have changed. I first said that retinol was not good for your skin, but there were reasons why I made that statement. As you read, you’ll…

Masks, K-Beauty & Dupes

A little stop at CVS ended in me leaving with $60 less in my wallet! Granted, some of the beauty products were for my daughter, but I just couldn’t resist picking some things up for myself! The first item I bought was something I’ve been debating about. Iceland’s Hydrating Eye Stick was once again staring…

Chemical vs. Physical SPF

As a skincare/beauty junkie, I am always careful about using SPF all year round. Regardless of the season, it’s vital to use SPF even if it’s cloudy. I was using a skincare line faithfully and always wore a sunscreen in the form of makeup or a moisturizer that contained SPF. I was on a really…

Another Atypical Eye Makeup Look For Me

Hey, beauties! I’ve been so inspired by reading so many of your posts showing such beautiful looks with deeper eyeshadow colors for fall.

Quick Review

I went to Walmart and picked up 3 things. One was a mask, a mask tool, and a foundation brush. Soo Ae is quickly becoming one of my favorite K-beauty drugstore brands.

Review of Garnier Micellar Foaming Cleanser

I received a full size of the Garnier Micellar Foaming Cleanser to try in exchange for an honest review. I’ve been using micellar water for quite a while now. This concept of a foaming cleanser was new to me, however. I thought the whole point of micellar water was the ease of use and not…

10-Step Korean Skincare Routine

I’ve been fascinated lately with the 10-step Korean skincare routine for some time now. Korean women have beautiful skin. I mean, how many Korean women have you seen with acne? Maybe there are, but I haven’t seen any. They take amazing care of their skin and are very diligent in doing so. I have been…

The Mystery Blogger Award

Hey, beauties! It’s been a rough week for me as I’ve been down and out with the stomach flu. I would never wish that on my worst enemy. I apologize that I didn’t complete this post sooner, but my health wouldn’t allow it! So, I’ve been nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award, and I have…
