Review: Shara Shara The Veiled Beauty – AKA The Most Amazing Product Ever!

So for my first review of 2015, I wanted to go *big* with my most favorite skin care find ever.  I’ve only used this product for a week, but I’m so amazed by the results  that I couldn’t wait to blog about it.  This product is truly unique, and delivers some amazing moisturizing and skin protecting results.  So what is this holy grail product that I speak of?  It is… *drumroll please*…

The Veiled Beauty Sleeping Mask by Shara Shara!  Yup, I never heard about it before I ordered it, either.  But when I saw it on en.koreadepart.com and looked up the ingredients, I realized that this product was truly unique.  And with the hope that it could be amazing, I ordered it.  And sure enough, this product amazed me with crazy immediate results!

I seriously think that this is my best find (so far) in my skin care journey, and I can’t believe that this product is so underrated that I haven’t heard about it before.  So let me be the first to yell from the rooftops about how amazing this product is!  Read my review, and do your skin a favor by purchasing this product.  This is an absolute *must buy* product for every skin type, every age,  and I’ll explain why…

New Year’s Skinsolution: 10 Things to Try This Year for Better Skin!

Happy New Year Akemashite Omedetou

Happy New Year!! 明けましておめでとう!!  I hope this blog finds everyone happy and well in this new year!

As a child in Japan, my favorite holiday was New Year’s.  I always had so much fun visiting my Japanese family, playing special New Year’s games with my cousins, and eating good food, which always included lots of mochi!  Oh, and of course receiving otoshidama (little envelopes filled with cash) from my family and my mother’s friends and coworkers wasn’t bad either!

In Japan, like everywhere else in this amazingly wide world, New Year’s is a time for reflection, gratitude, joy, hope and excitement for what the future will bring.  And it’s because of this sense of hope and excitement that I always make a New Year’s Resolution every year.  Even if I don’t keep the resolution for the entire year, I think that it’s a great way to make (or attempt to make) positive changes in your life, and what better time to do it than at the beginning of a New Year?  So the following are my skin care resolutions – Skinsolutions – that I’ve decided to do in 2015.

My skin has already improved SO MUCH in these last few months, and I hope to continue to see more improvements as I continue to follow these skinsolutions.  I hope that they’ll help your skin too!

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.
