I’d rather get coal than Drunk Elephant “Beste Jelly Cleanser”. So I’m not a fan of Drunk Elephant products in general - I’ve never understood the hype. If there is one product that’s ok, it’s their tan drops for foundation/moisturizer. Which is really not even a makeup bag staple. This cleanser though? The worst I’ve ever used. - it doesn’t lather - it doesn’t clean your face I got it with a Sephora purchase, and figured I’d leave it at my boyfriend’s to use as my second cleanser. I’m a double cleanse kind of gal. I start with micellar water, and then use either Peter Thomas Roth cloud drench cleanser or cetaphil for sensitive skin. For my boyfriends place, I use the drunk elephant “Beste” cleanser. It’s terrible! My face always feels like it’s still got makeup on it, so I have to use the micellar water *again*. That’s right. I have to triple cleanse when I use this stuff. I’m not sure how it can be even marketed as a soap! It’s literally just a gooey jelly product, very sticky, with no laather. My skin always feels really dry after using it too. (I have dry/oily combo skin that’s sensitive. Avoid this product if you’re dry or sensitive). The couple of weeks I was using it, I had several break outs in my chin area. I had to rate this as 1 Star, as Cherie doesn’t give a zero-star option lol. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample This is the only product I’ve ever given 0/5 to. Additionally, if you get the screw top bottle, it WILL leave a sticky puddle on your cabinet shelf. There is no way around it.

Very affordable k-beauty: innisfree clay mask
Very affordable k-beauty: innisfree clay mask
I’ve rated this product quite highly: 4/5. It’s an excellent budget option for getting into the k-beauty game. It clears out your pores, and leaves skin feeling soft as a peach afterwards. Admittedly, I did have some breakouts around my forehead when I began using the product (twice weekly), however, once my skin adjusted (and I’m guessing, once my pores were super clean), all I was left with was reduced pores sizes and soft skin that makeup simply glided onto! Clay masks can be expensive, and sometimes require putting the time and effort into seeing results. Apart from the expense, because this is super affordable, this product is no different. Its price point makes the time needed worth it however! You can use and use without feeling the need to use it sparingly. For the record, I have a sensitive and dry/oily combination skin. innisfree - Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask

This K-Beauty product is more than just o-k!
This K-Beauty product is more than just o-k!
Tatcha Water Cream... where do I start!? It’s almost perfect! It’s luxurious, but IT WONT BREAK YOU OUT!!! In the summer my skin is always a bit oilier (and always sensitive) and this product was my go to! It even out the oily parts and made the dry parts (thank you AC) feel soft and smooth. There is definitely a feeling of glowy-ness once this bad boy has absorbed. It’s lightweight but honestly it feels so luxe. It comes with a gorgeous gold mini palate to apply to your face too, even better for those with acne who hate touching their skin. It’s expensive- which might be its only con (I deducted a point for this). Luckily, it does its jobs! TATCHA - The Water Cream

Don’t Belif the hype: 2/5 for the true cream
Don’t Belif the hype: 2/5 for the true cream
I was disappointed by this product. It’s not the cheapest k-beauty moisturizer, and it doesn’t have a particularly difficult job. It’s just supposed to be a run of the mill moisturizer but it doesn’t deliver. In terms of performance: it absorbs quite quickly, but I don’t find it moisturized my skin well. In the winter I would still get dry, flakey skin by the afternoon. Its texture was thin, which is okay for a day cream, but considering it’s a “moisture bomb” it seemed a little weak. It’s packaging is fine, but I don’t like the lid and it sort of look like a rip of the Philosophy products. Good for sensitive skin sure, but I don’t know whether this broke me out or not. I had some pimples while using, but hard to target one product. I think this one is a skip! belif - The True Cream-Moisturizing Bomb

My k-beauty travel must have: Laneige mask
My k-beauty travel must have: Laneige mask
Laneige: I’ve had my ups and downs with this kbeauty favorite... but this mask is my go to travel companion! Marketed as a super hydrating sleep mask for nighttime, it delivers one thing and one thing only: a drink of water for your skin overnight. True to form, it IS super hydrating. It absorbs quickly, and it smells just-so. I have sensitive skin, prone to dryness but also breakouts. This doesn’t have any negative side effects for me whatsoever! The texture is gel like and quite thin. Honestly I might prefer it if it were a little thicker - when I do a night mask I want to feel that what I’m using is luxurious. I use the travel size when I’m traveling. I get on the plane makeup free when possible, and slather this stuff all over my face. When I use it at home, I follow up with the jade roller to make sure it gets into every pore! It’s worth the money. 4/5 because I don’t love it’s consistency for a mask, and its packaging is a bit cheap looking. Always repurchasing. LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask

No results: Murad Youth Renewal Eye Serum
No results: Murad Youth Renewal Eye Serum
I’ll cut to the chase: I used this for a month, and so no results. I don’t know why I keep being drawn back to the brand. I haven’t found a single product to give me results! Maybe that’s just me. It had a beautiful texture, and did not dehydrate or dry out my skin the way some retinol products tend to do. But it also didn’t make a dent in my fine lines. It just kind of did nothing? It’s expensive for something that does nothing. I only used it at night, so I can’t say it it’s good under makeup, but I didn’t have a problem applying creams over it. I did not find it increased my light sensitivity, but again, I did not wear it during the day. For a small bottle at $85, this product is not worth trying out. For reference, I am 29, and have mild lines around my eyes but nothing terrible. Sometimes my eye area is dry or dehydrated. Perhaps someone with a different skin type, or skin that has matured more will fare better. Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum

I lavaloveeee this Innisfree clay mask 🔥

Innisfree | pore clearing clay mask 2x, with super volcanic clusters | $15 for 100 mL 🌋 • this pore-clearing solution is a wash off mask, which can be used to exfoliate and clear blackheads, absorb excess oil, and help improve the overall look/texture of skin. • The Innisfree pore clearing mask is to be used 1-2x per week. Avoiding eye & lip area. • Target concerns are normal, combination, and oily skin types. This product addresses the following concerns: pores, oiliness, dullness, and uneven texture. It contains jeju volcanic clusters, which are designed to help absorb excess sebum. It also contains lactic acid, which helps exfoliate skin and reduce the appearance of pores. • It has a slight grunge green color to it (what you would expect from a clay mask); the mask is of a creamy, clay consistency. Once applied to the face, it reminds me of a “zombie vibe,” but that’s my opinion lol 🧟‍♀️ • I have used the Innisfree clay mask only a handful of times, but it has yet to make my skin feel taut and stressed, like some clay masks have done in the past. I decided to try this because of the price and then realized the price reflected the size of the product – the cost is $15 for 100 mL. • I do like this product, mostly because the claims made hold true. I do feel that the oil in my t-zone decreased after using the mask, relative to most days prior to using the mask. It literally felt like my face was cleaner – perhaps because of the tingling, cool sensation the clay mask leaves behind after you wash it off. The cool lasted for about ten minutes. 🥶 • I totally recommend this product. I have sensitive skin, so I keep the mask on for 8 minutes, then wash it off. I am conservative with timing, so as to avoid my face being irritated. After two uses, I noticed significant changes in my skin – namely, the decrease of blackheads around the edge of my nostrils and in the middle of my chin. 😻👌🏼 • The product is worth the price; my estimate is that this product will total up to 10 uses. 🤲🏼 • 5/5 because it exfoliates and controls oils, which are the two claims Innisfree makes. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

LIP BALM THAT I USE AS EYE SERUM? YES
LIP BALM THAT I USE AS EYE SERUM? YES
So I know that this product is actually a lip balm by drunk elephant but I have always always used it as an eye serum because I just think it’s pretty thin for a lip balm! basically I swipe it under my eyelids to prep it for my eye cream application! it is perfectly thin and made with avocado cranberry and marula oil to really moisturize and soothe the delicate skin around your lips which makes it works super wonderfully for the eyes!! drunk elephant also says that this can be swiped under your eyes so don’t worry I’m not crazy! I really do like this product because it enhances The nutrients in my actual eye cream and makes it work better! this balm is equivalent to what in essence does for your skin! I only knocked it down a star because I think it is actually a little too thin but I’m not complaining I think it layers perfectly under my eye cream as a serum but for those who want to use it as a lip balm or an eye cream this is not your product :/ overall good!

This facial cleansing tool is a dual speed spin brush that is meant to remove hard to get makeup and sweat, sweeps away dirt, and brings forth your natural glow. I’ve been using this cleansing tool for about a year now on and off (because I’m extremely lazy), and I am so satisfied with how it cleans out my pores and cleans out makeup that I didn’t even know was still on my skin. I am so impressed by the quality of this product it is my absolute favorite. I used to spend hours ripping apart my skin with makeup wipes to get my concealer out but when I started using this product my skin completely changed for the better. It’s gentle touch easily gets all my hard to remove makeup off and leaves my skin looking flawless. I love this product so much I cannot stress how worth the money this is! I appreciate the product this much because it does exactly what it says it does and does not irritate or aggravate my skin. The brush heads are so soft! I would rate this product a 5/5.

Obsessed with this blackhead clearing mask!
Obsessed with this blackhead clearing mask!
The Vichy masque charbon clarifiant is a charcoal clarfying mask for all skin types, especially congested and oily. It contains charcoal to detoxify skin, and clay to draw out impurities. It targets congested pores and oilyness. It has a thick clay texture and a dark grey color. Overall, I really enjoyed this mask and it has become my go-to detox mask. I decided to try it after getting it in my allure beauty box. It really helped clear my pores and get rid of blackheads on my nose. I would highly recommend this to anyone with congested pores because it is very effective and easy to use. It is worth it because it is quick to use and fairly cheap.

This mask is good for when you have congested skin and breakouts. It helps to clear out your pores and get rid of black heads. It also helps with dull skin because of the ginseng. This mask is a mud mask so it is kind of thick but easy to apply and wash off. You can see in the picture it doesn’t move around. I really like this product it makes my skin feel really clean and soft after I wash it off. My pores also appear a lot smaller after use. I use this a few times a week or whenever I feel my skin is congested. I really like this and think it is definitely worth the money as it’s 1.52 oz for $22. I recommend this product to anyone who is in the market for a nice mask. pixi - Glow Mud Mask

Midnight Recovery Eye Serum! 👁
Midnight Recovery Eye Serum! 👁
The product: The Kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye Serum is a lightweight serum infused with botanical extracts and oils that help diminish the look of eye bags and dark circles, overnight! 💫 The serum is also free of parabens and the packaging is 100% recyclable. ♻️ My impressions: This eye serum is one of the most effective and instantaneous products I have ever tried! It is such a light weight product and glides so smoothly across the skin. The packaging is adorable as well, the product comes out of a small tube, making it super accessible to apply anywhere, especially because the smallest bit can go the longest way. There a slight scent of the cream which almost smells fresh! I use this serum under my eyes every night and I have seen such amazing results! My dark circles definitely lightened up too! 😌 How it worked on a combination skin type: Midnight Recovery is heard of and known to be an oily product, but as I have slowly started to use it more frequently, it has started to work so well. It does not strip the natural oils within my skin or cause any excess oiliness. It gives the perfect amount of hydration to the under eye area and does exactly what it is designed to do! I have never had a negative reaction involving hyperpigmentation or blemishes either! Midnight Recovery Skin Type: 🌚 Dry Length of Use: 6 months Cost: $38 USD / 15ML Target Areas: Dark spots, dullness, dryness, and uneven texture. 🎯 Recommend: If you have a combination skin type like myself, I definitely recommend trying out this product. It is not super expensive either, which is always a bonus. It had legitimate effective results and they are seen quickly too. Not only has it helped myself to gain a younger looking appearance, but as well as friends and family members! 😏 Overall Rating: Overall, Midnight Recovery Eye Serum is a 5/5! It worked well and the product itself was so lightweight. When I went to sleep it didn’t feel heavy or like my pores were being blocked, which I loved! 🌟 Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Eye Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Eye
