So, as we all know, we have a lot of time on our hands when we use a sheet mask. As a result, I got curious about the pH of the two cleansers I had used most recently, Innisfree Jeju Bija Anti-Trouble Gel Cleanser and CosRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser. There’s been a … More Measuring pH – why it matters how you do it
I don’t know what it is about Asian beauty products, but holy cow, seriously, what’s up with the names? They’re so ridiculously long! I say this because I’ve found my holy grail of cleansers, and the name is a dozy. Are you ready? It’s the Innisfree Jeju Bija Anti-Trouble Cleansing Gel. Yeah, I’m going to call … More My HG cleanser with the ridiculously long name
So, graduate school basically took over my life and that’s why I disappeared. It was worth the work, but I definitely missed exploring beauty routines. Naturally, my first thing I did after the semester was over, I rewarded myself with Fresh Sugar Rose Extreme Lip Treatment. It smells exactly like you would think – Roses! … More Everything’s Coming Up Roses
So, while at my local TJMaxx, a discount department store, I found a plethora of asian beauty products such as Naisture and Leaders Insolution sheet masks.

After averaging out shipping costs, the bundle came out to $4.74 or about $1.60 per mask to me in the US. If you can stand the … More Food for you, food for your face: Skinfood Sheet Mask
It occurs to me that I have not been very good about recording what sheet masks I’ve tried out. While my local TJMaxx did not stock popular AB brands like My Beauty Diary or Naisture or Leaders, they did have a crap ton of other brands I’d never heard of like Global Beauty Care. (I … More Sheet masks!
Well, that’s a bummer. Patch testing of Skinfood Black Sugar Cleansing Water has shown that it breaks me out. I’d been testing to see how well it cleans my skin in the morning. I’d just swiped a cotton swab on my right cheek, followed the instructions for not washing it off, and proceeded with the … More Day 3
I am obsessed with lip products. This is because I can’t go anywhere without at least 2 -3 lip products to keep my poor, wide lips moisturized. I am the kind of person that if I forget to put on chapstick/lipbalm/lipstick on my lips, they will dry out, peel, crack, and bleed in the space … More Move over Lolita!
It’s been a week of solid testing and, I’m excited! Meet my first ever holy grail item! This is a facial oil by A’pieu called Essential Source Rose Hips Facial Oil. I love it.
