Every once in a while, I see a brand that is new to me and I get a bit excited over it. This is how I felt with AwakeAsleep ~ they don’t seem to have a lot of products, but this serum sounded so intriguing that I wanted to try it badly. Once you see … More AwakeAsleep Parsley Seed Energy Serum Review
I have a lipstick problem, how about you? I love matte lipsticks and liquid matte lipsticks the best. I also love the Korean formulas for matte liquid lippies as they manage to create ones that go on creamy, smooth and the dry down doesn’t cake or crack. Not only that, but they leave behind a … More Innisfree Autumn Maple ….
As it is the summer, I seem to test more sunscreens even though I wear them all year round. For some reason, Missha isn’t a brand that I normally gravitate towards, but I saw this physical sunscreen made with centella and thought I would give it a try. A lot of my readers want to … More Missha CICADIN Rescue Sun Lotion SPF50+ PA++++ Review
As it is allergy season where I live, the skin around my eyes get even more puffy and dark, so I reach for hydrogel eye patches quite a bit.

More Mugworty Goodness! I am on a mission to review these new 100% Mugwort Essences that so many brands are creating now!

CICA products contain centella asiatica and 3 or 4 components extracted … More Laneige CICA Sleeping Mask Review
I knew Haruharu as a sheet mask brand, but nothing about their other skincare products. I was fortunate enough to get their Wonder Black Rice Serum from Jolse, a Korean online shop, for review purposes. The Black Rice line is fairly new and they have several items, but the serum is one of the first … More Haruharu Wonder Black Rice Serum Review
Another product review on a brand I am not very familiar with ~ Caryophy, a K-Beauty Green Beauty Brand that specializes in products that contain portulaca. The name Caryophy comes from the Latin botanical order of portulaca, caryophyllales. Jolse, a Korean online shop, sent me this toner for review purposes. Skin type/concerns: Oily, aging, blemish … More Caryophy Portulaca Toner Review
I am a matte lipstick junkie but I do realize that matte lippies have massive flaws ~ many of them crack, separate and make lips look like a zombie from The Walking Dead. It truly is a fine line between finding a good matte lipstick that is longlasting, yet won’t make my lips look dry … More BBIA Last Matte Lippies Review
Last year, I wrote a blog post about two infused cotton puffs and I was really impressed with both of them: A’PieuChungchoon Calamine Cotton Puffs and Etude House Bamboo Charcoal Cotton Pads.

IsnTree is a K-Beauty brand that is very affordable and is a quality product.

This is the second in my cosRX series of items to review ~ I still have a few more to go, but I thought this one was of major interest with the colder weather ahead, which means very dehydrated skin.
