Mask Empties (Laneige, Skinfood, I’m from, Some by Mi, Lindsay, Hatherine)

Here's a fun fact: I use face masks every. single. day. It may be a sheet mask, a [bubbly] clay mask, an overnight sleeping pack, a treatment wash-off mask or a toner pad mask, but one thing is for sure: That little luxury is what gets me through the day, both as a self-care moment … Continue reading Mask Empties (Laneige, Skinfood, I’m from, Some by Mi, Lindsay, Hatherine)

Best of Beauty 2021

This year, I barely wore any makeup save for some eye makeup every now and then, though I really miss wearing a full face. Alas, as long as the mask mandates stay in place, I do not see myself going back to my pre-pandemic pancake face, but if you're interested in which BB cream I … Continue reading Best of Beauty 2021

Review: Cleansing Milk Smackdown | Acne Struggles

Background A year and a half ago, I'd hit another low, skin-wise, and I had to visit the derm again for yet another round of extractions and antibiotics.

Review: Xemose – Syndet Nettoyant Doux [Gentle Cleansing Syndet] | A Sensitive Skin Hero

That's how good … Continue reading Review: Xemose – Syndet Nettoyant Doux [Gentle Cleansing Syndet] | A Sensitive Skin Hero

Review: Silcot Cotton Pads (Uru Uru, Hukitori, Uru Uru Organic Cotton) ๐Ÿ’ฎ

When I first started getting into skincare following the onset of moderate to severe adult acne in my early 20s, I heard some people talk about the importance of cotton pads in your routine. I scoffed at the absurdity of elevating cotton pads, of all things, as something to Actually Give Serious Thought to.
