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

The ingredients were gentle enough that I could wear them overnight instead of washing it off after 15 minutes like the packaging recommends. The mask … More Battle of the Roses: Mamonde versus Fresh
So, I’ve been testing out Skinfood’s Everyday Green Tea Facial Mask Sheet. I’d gotten a bundle of 3 masks from Rose Rose Shop as part of my last order. 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 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. I use it as an occlusive moisturizer at the end of my evening routine to seal in the moisture on my face. I’ve … More My First Holy Grail Item!
So. Over the course of a week, I noticed that my skin was getting little, angry red bumps. At first, I thought it was due to all the house work we’ve been doing lately on fixing up the house we bought. (The ceilings hadn’t been painted in 30 years, to start. They’re getting painted and … More Humble pie – or I should have listened to everyone else about patch testing.

So, I started my journey with asian beauty products around October of 2014. It’s been pretty great so far, I’ve gotten rid of the wretched, dry, flaky patches of skin that have plagued me skin puberty. One of the first two products I added to my “beauty routine” included Skinfood’s Black Sugar Cleansing Oil. The … More After 7 months of Skinfood
