Review: COSRX Low-pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

CosRx Low pH gel collage

Discovering this product made me a huge fan of COSRX!  It immediately replaced by beloved CeraVe cleanser.  I’ve been using this product consistently for a year now, and it never disappoints!  Gentle on skin, cleanses without a trace, and best of all, the right pH to keep your skin healthy.  Oh, and guess what?  It’s great for all times of the day – not just the morning!

Review: Mizon Original Skin Energy Ampoules: Peptide, Placenta, and Collagen, Oh My!

Mizon skin energy ampoules

When did getting older ever become a bad thing?  I remember (like it was yesterday!) being a frustrated teenager and counting down the years until I was 18 and officially became an adult.  Even in my 20s, I looked forward to my birthday every year.  Every year was a step towards my education or career goals.  Every year provided more knowledge, more experiences, more adventures, more confidence, and more security!

But now I am officially getting older, and it is not such a good thing anymore.  Somehow time has crept up, and I suddenly woke up to find myself in my mid-30s, although I still feel like I’m 25, and often get mistaken for it.  I take pride in looking like I’m still in my 20s, and goddamn it, I will maintain it as long as humanly possible!  (Without looking like a plastic freak with a pulled-apart face like overstretched mozzarella – you know what I’m talking about.)

Review: Missha All-Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk

After reading a couple of reviews on Missha’s “sun milk” sunscreens, I was curious to try the “soft finish” one since one of my biggest pet peeves is using a sunscreen that leaves a shiny and/or white cast.  Also, I was on the search for a nice sunscreen that could also double as a primer or makeup base.

I had a few problems with it not working well under my BB cream, but after I learned how to blend it together properly, I really learned to love Missha All-Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk.  I know I’ll be trying out other brands when I’m done with this bottle, but I’ll probably go back to this since I really love the way it works with my BB cream to give me a natural, even skin tone and finish!

Review: Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Cream

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Cream

So if you read my previous post on Nature Republic’s Combination Watery Cream, you’re probably surprised that I would give anything else in this line a chance.  But, I received a sample of this cream from Korea Depart, and opened the sample with trepidation.  I was happily surprised with a slight smell of roses coming from this cream (and not the obnoxious Axe deodorant smell that was in the Combination Watery Cream).  So I found someone from Hawaii selling a bottle of Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Cream on Amazon, and I went for it.
