K-Beauty Spa Day
Peach and Lily was my first introduction into Korean skincare and I was enticed by the brand’s clean approach to skincare; its founder strives for clean, non-irritating formulations to better cater to inflammatory skin conditions like acne, eczema, and more. As someone with acne-prone skin that tends to be sensitive and reactive when up against harsh ingredients, this seemed like the perfect brand for me. The products can be purchased through peachandlily.com or at Ulta, which is where I got them. These are my K-Beauty must-haves from the brand. PEACH & LILY - Pore Proof Perfecting Clay Mask

KBEAUTY RESCUE BALM
Video in the previous post!! Relieve and recovers the skin with the sunflower seed pil and Coptis Root Extract ! I use this under my eyes and near my lips and on my lips before I put on my retinol from Differin! PEACH & LILY - Kbeauty Rescue Balm It can be a little too oily on my skin but other than that it is great!
Stocking stuffers ✨
Thanks to the annual sale peach & lily has I got some great $1-$2 stocking stuffers! They are now full price again but still quite affordable ranges from $2.50 -$6 right now I got a variety in masks as I have a lot of friends in skincare and also snagged one or two for myself I also got a PEACH & LILY - Kbeauty Rescue Balmfor $10! Can’t wait to try it out!
Overnight Star Sleeping Mask (Ulta Only)
The first thing I noticed when using this was.... it doesn’t ever dry. So prepare to wake up to a mess haha. The second thing was how amazingly soft and vibrant my skin was the following morning! You use this instead of your usual moisturizer at night. It’s ingredients include açaí berry, black ginseng, niacinamide, and peptides. I’ve used plenty of masks. But this one both feels good and works! You will not regret the purchase!
Redness, Irritation, Dryness From Damage Barrier
If you suffer from any of the above then you MUST try this! The PEACH & LILY - Overnight Star Sleeping Mask is one of my favorite products of 2019 🙌🏻 because it focuses on restoring your skins barrier when you sleep. Redness and Irritation is often due to a damaged skin barrier function and this product has so many amazing ingredients meant to combat these issues. In turn, your redness and irritation goes down and allows dryness to disappear. Hallelujah 🙌🏻 Therefore this is going to be amazing for all skin types but especially sensitive, irritated and dry skin. The texture as you can see is thick and rich and a little goes a LONG way - and no - it doesn’t turn your face blue 😂 At $43 I think it is well worth it considering this jar will last you easily 7 to 8 months or longer with nightly use. I love the minimal and clear packaging so you can see that beautiful blue color shine through. If I could give this 6 stars I would 💙

Pore Proof Perfecting Clay Mask (Ulta Only)
We all know the traditional clay mask sourced from Wyoming, USA. It dries, hardens, and irritates skin. This clay mask is different. It used a special kind of clay called Kaolin Clay mixed with wild cherry, strawberry, and licorice extracts. As it dries it does not harden or cause any discomfort while still giving you equal results to the traditional clay masks without all the irritation and damage. Plus it’s pink and smells like cherries haha.
🎃Halloween skincare prep - pink clay mask
Halloween is usually the time of year where we do the most - face paint and heavy makeup, sweating it out at a party (although not this year 😅) or wearing an actual mask. Whatever the case may be, I find that preparing your skin in advance is a great way to block post-Halloween breakouts! PEACH & LILY - Pore Proof Perfecting Clay Mask This clay mask formula uses kaolin clay and bentonite to help draw out even the deepest impurities, skin-soothing wild cherry, strawberry, and licorice extracts. What I like about it is that it doesn’t dry on hard, but stays soft so your skin is left hydrated and not stripped. This will be also perfect for use post-Halloween because pores get a deep-clean! I use it once a week after my usual cleanser and before moisturizer. It’s $43 on the peach and lily website

This K-Beauty Duo is a Must Have! 🌟
I was shocked when I realized that I have yet to share with you guys this amazing duo - the Peach & Lily 𝒢𝑜𝑜𝒹 𝒜𝒸𝒾𝒹𝓈 𝒯𝑜𝓃𝑒𝓇 & 𝒲𝒾𝓁𝒹 𝒟𝑒𝓌 𝒯𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓉𝓂𝑒𝓃𝓉 𝐸𝓈𝓈𝑒𝓃𝒸𝑒 🖤 I received the toner through Boxycharm and have been on the hunt ever since to snag it at a discounted price during Boxypop sales / monthly Add Ons. The essence was gifted as part of a giveaway prize from my friend Ana - she gave me the mini (which I’ve emptied) & now I am about to crack open a full size! I have been using both of these products off & on for about 2 months. ✨ 𝔾𝕠𝕠𝕕 𝔸𝕔𝕚𝕕𝕤 𝕋𝕠𝕟𝕖𝕣 - This formula is gentle enough for daily use without compromising how effective it is as an exfoliant. It is a pH adjusting toner that helps remove dead skin cells & keeps pores clear without that tight, stripped feeling. I also love that there is no tingling sensation when you apply it. It also has an impressive (& clean) ingredients list - AHA blend, salicylic acid, cape lilac, eggplant & aloe. ⚡️ 𝕎𝕚𝕝𝕕 𝔻𝕖𝕨 𝕋𝕣𝕖𝕒𝕥𝕞𝕖𝕟𝕥 𝔼𝕤𝕤𝕖𝕟𝕔𝕖 - Say what you will because I know some think essences are just a luxurious extra step in skincare, but I love me a good essence! I personally like to dash a few drops into my palms and press the essence into my skin, seeing that it instantly seeps into the skin effortlessly to provide hydration, fights against breakouts and leaves you with radiant looking skin! ⚡️ Have you tried anything from this amazing Korean beauty brand? Let me know down below your favorite Peach & Lily product! 💫 PEACH & LILY - The Good Acids Pore Toner PEACH & LILY - Wild Dew Treatment Essence
Peach & Lily, you’ve won my 💖
Guys, I’m so excited about this line and brand!!! I’ve never tried Peach & Lily, but I have been dying to get my hands on it for months now. I finally went to Ulta a few days ago and picked up their mini set, for only $39 (adds up to about $65!) This is a Korean beauty skincare line, and it allegedly uses all natural ingredients that soothes the skin and hydrates. I have struggled to find products that moisturize my face well without breaking me out, or causing way more excess oil on my oily skin. Let’s get into my thoughts on each product!! In the morning I like to start out with the PEACH & LILY - Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser and I gave it 5 stars because.... I’m in love. It smells AMAZING and feels so good on the skin. Also, a tiny pea sized amount is plenty for the entire face! It glides so easily and really gets my skin feeling fresh and clean. I like to double cleanse and start out with an oil cleanser and then follow up with this. Could not love this product more! The only downside is that it’s pretty pricey, at $28. Next I go in with the PEACH & LILY - Wild Dew Treatment Essence and to tell you the truth, I’ve never used an essence before this! I put about 3 drops on my hands and pat that onto my face. It soaks in very quickly and leaves a fresh feeling. It supposedly helps hydrate the skin and allow other product seep into the skin more easily. I gave this a 4 because it’s nice, but I don’t think it’s a holy grail product just yet. After the essence I go in with the very popular PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum that is BREAKING the internet! This serum is basically for hydrating the skin with HA and creates that “glass skin” look everyone is going for. I was very skeptical about this y’all. But I genuinely see a difference in my skin after using this serum!!! I am super impressed with it, and might purchase again! But, it could be just as good as any other good HA serum out there. Last but not least..... PEACH & LILY - Matcha Pudding Antioxidant Cream !!!! 5/5 stars for this beauty. I am in love with this moisturizer and see a difference in my skin after a week’s use. I love that it’s packed with antioxidants and matcha, and is a lightweight moisturizer! It’s the final touch to the glass skin line and I definitely see that my skin looks beautiful and dewy after using it. I will be repurchasing this and can’t wait to use it more! Thanks for reading! 💖

Does 90% Centella Asiatica help?
Does 90% help??? The Answer is - Yes but it can be sensitizing as well. If not used properly it may irritate/ burn skin. 🌿Centella Asiatica (Cica) is very well known in the skincare community to be healing,calming and helping with irritation and inflammation. 🌿But what is Cica? Centella Asiatica is Asiatic/Indian Pennywort, is a herbaceous, perennial plant in the flowering plant family Apiaceae. It is native to the wetlands in Asia. It is used as a culinary vegetable and as a medicinal herb. The medicinal values and wound healing properties are known from ancient medicinal practices and values. The mention of this plant and it’s herbal and medicinal properties is found in Ayurveda (Ancient Indian Medicinal values) and Chinese Gotu Kola. The widespread clinical research speaks about it's quick wound healing properties and it is shown to increase collagen production and increased tensile strength in newly formed skin in the wounded areas. 🌿Now talking about how is it helpful for people with Acne? It works in similar fashion for compromised barrier with Acne, Sun damage and other skin concerns. It helps to heal the skin with rapid collagen production and elasticity. The Centella 90 Ampoule by @pureheals PureHeals - Centella 90 Ampoule has 90% Centella Asiatica ingredient and is relatively inexpensive for that concentration of the ingredient. 🌿Details of the product: ➡️Skin irritation tested. Uses EWG green grade ingredients. ➡️Contains 90% of Centella Extract to soothe irritated skin for a healthy radiance. ➡️Reinforces collapsing skin barrier with Ceramide NP to protect skin. ➡️Fortifies skin moisture barrier to protect skin from the external aggressors. ➡️Contains Adenosine to improves fine lines and Niacinamide for skin brightening. 🌿My experience and thoughts: ➡️Although Cica is known as anti inflammatory and antioxidant, for my Hormonal acne skin 90% Centella Asiatica is too harsh ➡️ The consistency is watery and absorbs quickly but I experienced slight burning on my face which was reactive to my skin and I was fine with it. As I'm sensitive I'm reactivate to few ingredients. This was one of them. ➡️ Did it help my inflammation and irritation? Yes. But at very mild level. Because of it's high concentration my skin was infact facing contact dermatitis so I started using very little amount and it helped. ➡️ I like @elemis Cica hydration juice ELEMIS - Superfood CICA Calm Hydration Juice better than @pureheals one. ➡️ I believe if anyone who has redness and active inflammation, they can use two- three drops and get the benefits of this. ➡️ Niacinamide and other ingredients are perfect in this formulation and they definitely help with hyperpigmentation. Do you like Centella? Which products do you like and helped you?? Let me know! ❤️

Foyo Face mask & oil
💗 MO' HYDRATION — FOR DRY OR DULL SKIN One of my most favorite powdered face mask. Just mix with water and leave it on for 30 minutes then wash it off.

I forgot to mention it smells amazing 🥰 ——— 💗 MOISTURIZING FACE OIL FOR ALL SKIN TYPES • Ingredients: Almond Seed Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Coffee Seed Oil. I use it in the morning with make up on and at night before bed. It’s my anywhere-anytime oil, just roll under my eyes /on my face where I feel dried.

Meet my Favorite K-Beauty Brand💐
𝐏𝐲𝐮𝐧𝐤𝐚𝐧𝐠 𝐘𝐮𝐥 is a skincare brand launched by the renowned Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic, an institution well-known for treating atopic skin disorders. Although I have not talked about them much online, Pyungkang Yul has been one of my favorite brands and I have always enjoyed most of the products they’ve offered. I like that they are using traditional ingredients and promoting a minimalist approach to skin care. Pyungkang Yul uses only the gentle, yet effective ingredients to help find the optimum balance for your skin. I have combination/oily skin and also acne-prone and here’s my top three recommendations that I think are most suitable for my skin type: Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner ~ intensely hydrating formula designed to deliver nutrient-filled moisture to skin. Made up of 𝟗𝟏.𝟑% 𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐤 𝐯𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐭 𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐭 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭, full of skin-beneficial betaine and minerals. With the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, nutrient-boosting properties of the root extract, this gel-type toner quickly absorbs to hydrate and strengthen skin. ~ LOVE THIS. It has added so much hydration and moisture to my skin. I don’t use toner regularly but it’s a nice product to give your skin an extra oomph when it needs it. This is very gentle and works without causing irritation and disrupting the skin barrier. Other serums and moisturizers layer on top of this beautifully. It feels very balancing, anti-inflammatory and hydrating; all with so few natural ingredients. This literally makes my skin feel cool and calmed. Even better when stored in the fridge so it’s even more refreshing on irritated or hot skin. I highly recommend it! Pyunkang Yul - Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream ~ enriched with 𝐂𝐨𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐬 𝐉𝐚𝐩𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚 𝐑𝐨𝐨𝐭 𝐄𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭 for an intensive, everyday treat for your skin. Creamy and rich, this luxurious formula is buttery smooth without being heavy or greasy, absorbing quickly into your skin and leaving it hydrated and bouncy. ~ This was a skin saver when I was starting with Tretinoin and was experiencing dryness in the first few weeks. But still enjoy using it until now. The cream is very moisturizing but not too heavy which makes it still tolerable for oily skin. The texture is silky smooth which is a pleasure to apply and massage onto the face. This does not leave my skin oily or greasy -- it leaves a slight glow when you first apply it but sinks in beautifully overnight. Pyunkang Yul - Peeling Gel ~ moisturizing peeling gel that gently exfoliates and boosts skin moisture with 𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐢𝐧 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐲 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐟 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐭 to promote radiance. ~ Absolutely love this. I try to use it every now and then to just kind of get rid of extra dead skin cells and excess oil. I apply on dry skin, leave it on for about 2 minutes and start gently massaging it. The product gently catches dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Easy to use and you see the results right away. The value is a big plus. It’s very affordable at $14.99 compared to my other favorite, The Cure Aqua Gel. It smells a little bit medicinal but not irritatingly so. Definitely worth a try for oily, acne-prone gals like me!

Go-To Moisturizer for Oily Skin CosRx Rice Mask
COSRX - Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask Don’t let the word mask or the fact that it says overnight fool you, this product is a great daily moisturizer for oily skin. It’s advertised as an overnight spa mask that uses rice and niacinamide to brighten the skin and moisturize while you sleep BUT because it’s lightweight it’s also advertised to use during the day. The texture is creamy yet lightweight so it’s perfect for oily skin and doesn’t feel heavy at all. I’ve used this product for 3 months and this is what I think: ★ My Experience ★ I decided to try this after seeing it in a youtube video about oily skin moisturizers. When I saw this on their list I knew I wanted to try it as I’m a big fan on CosRx and the brightening benefits would be an extra bonus. I like this mask because it isn’t heavy at all and is still moisturizing. It soaks into the skin well and makes my face feel really soft afterwards. I haven’t noticed a major difference in my uneven skin tone from this product but I am used many different things for that issue so I can’t really tell. ★ Final Thoughts ★ I like this moisturizer and would recommend it to those with oily skin and hate the feeling of a heavy product on your skin. It’s definitely the most comfortable daily moisturizer I’ve tried recently. It’s priced at $18 which is a middle price for face moisturizers but works pretty well that I think it’s worth it.

Osea has a Memorial Day Offer!!
Just trying to get the word out that Osea is offering a beautiful bodycare set free with a purchase of $125 until May 25!! My recommendations are: OSEA - Black Algae Flash Mask This beauty will scrub and absorb all the funk lingering in your pores and will leave your skin impossibly bright and smooth! It’s very intense so it’s good for a once a week treatment for good skin quick. OSEA - Hyaluronic Sea Serum This one is my favourite hydrating serum ever. It’s more of a gel texture and sits a little bit on the skin instead of absorbing right away so I find it’s hydrating over a long period. I use it morning and night on top of a hydrating toner and my skin instantly plumps up. Plus it’s just a stunning product OSEA - Advanced Protection Cream I am pretty obsessed with this cream. It’s a light but super nourishing and heavy moisturizer for those who are incredibly parched or who have mature skin. A little goes a seriously long way
