I love talking all things beauty, all the time!
Fav K-Beauty picks 💕 corsx!
I just discovered this face wash from Cosrx and I think it is so lovely. It has tea tree oil in it, so it has a pleasant scent but not so much that it’s overwhelming. It’s a clear, light gel cleanser and it’s meant to balance pH of a morning cleanse. It’s gentle and very botanical. It’s great for my oily skin in the morning. It has a hydrating formula that doesn’t disrupt the skin's natural moisture balance, aka pH. Tea tree and natural beta hydroxy acids refine pores, control oil, and soften skin, that’s what the brand says of it and I entirely agree that has been my experience. This is $12 at Ulta, so it’s a good deal and I definitely will repurchase. A good recommendation for those with oily skin! Cosrx is my favorite South Korean beauty brand for sure!
COSRX-Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
Lovely for daily oil control 💕
I use this nearly every morning as a toner! I really like this K-beauty brand. I like nearly everything I’ve tried from them. This one is one of my favorites. It is perfect for people with enlarged pores and pore congestion. It has willow bark water and betaine salicylate to help keep the pores clear by dissolving the sebum and dead skin cells that can get trapped inside pores. It also has tannin, which helps tighten the pores and refine skin texture. It has a very liquidy texture. I use it under makeup and i think it does help me. I would recommend it to anyone with oily skin or acne-prone skin. It’s definitely worth the price of $22. I’ve been using it for months now and still have so much left!
COSRX-2 in 1 Poreless Power Liquid
Favorite lip scrub ✨
This scrub is cheap and available at Target. It’s never made me break out and it smells so good. I loooove anything mango. This was also gifted to me FYI. But I have repurchased the matching lip balm. This sugar sloughs off dead skin so nicely. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new scrub for sure. It scoops easily and it’s really soft when compared to other scrubs like from Lush or Colourpop that I have tried. I prefer this one to those.
A'Pieu daily sheet mask ✨
These sheet masks are so nice. I love how sustainable this packaging is! 30 sheet masks in one container! These are green tea and soothing. They’re so lovely and nothing overly saturated with serum that feels wasted. I think could be great for any skin type and honestly such a good value. I think it comes out to like 40 cents a sheet mask!
Awesome toner for blackheads ✨👏
I’m obsessed with this COSRX natural BHA. So BHA helps to control oil while helping to clear recurring pimples, and I’ve found this one to be an awesome non-drying acne treatment solution for sensitive skin. This comes out as a clear liquid, as most toners do. I have acne-prone oily skin and I really like this one for prevention of blackheads. I usually use it in the morning. I seriously love this and I think it really really works to help keep my face clear! Honestly, COSRX hasn’t done me wrong yet. I’m obsessed with most I tried from them. My boyfriend uses this too to treat his blackheads as he normally doesn’t get acne. I would recommend this to anyone with acne-prone or blackhead-prone skin!
COSRX-AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid
Decent eye serum 💕
This one is really just okay. It’s a brightening under eye cream so it’s meant to plump the under eye area and brighten. This one was just okay for me. I believe it has avocado oil in it, which doesn’t suit me. I have noticed a few acne spots after using it sometimes. It’s a creamy consistency but it settles sort of as a serum. There’s something about this that doesn’t feel like an everyday cream to me, and maybe that’s the acne situation for me. I would recommend this to someone that can handle oils better than I do. I do generally like itcosmetics actually. I love their cc cream so I thought I would like this but u don’t. I think there are definitely better eye serums out there.

Favorite products for 4c Hair
Have you all tried African Pride hair care? It’s so good for thirsty curls! My 4c hair has a hard time retain moisture but this does the trick. Their products are also super affordable but perform better than a lot of high end brands.

I’d rather get charcoal than to use this again!
Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 100 This is one of the most famous sunscreens from Neutrogena, the Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF100. The purpose of this sunscreen is to have the highest sun protection while you feel nothing ON your skin, i think that the dry touch is real, you feel like you didn’t put anything on, and protection is good. The thing to me was that this sunscreen made me breackout as hell! I used it for like 1 month when I bought it on may of these year and it was crazy, so much blemishes. Loved the Dry-Touch but the breakouts was a big NO! The consistency of this product is like a soft white cream. This product is for any skin type but for a combination or oily skin i don’t recommend at all but maybe for dry to normal skin could work, just have yourself patch testing on your neck. I’d rather get charcoal than this sunscreen!

Philosophy Christmas Cookie Shower Gel
I’d rather get coal than get the Philosophy Christmas Cookie shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath. This product is marketed as a 3 in 1 shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath that smells like christmas cookies. It is said to be moisturizing, gentle cleansing, and conditioning. It’s a silky feeling body wash, a little gel like. I really wish I liked this product. The one plus is that is smells really nice. But it is a terrible body wash, not a good bubble bath, and I wouldn’t dare use it in my hair. After using it on my body, my skin felt so stripped and dry - which is the exact opposite of what I would like from a body wash. Because of that, there was no way I would put it in my hair! It hardly makes bubbles for a bubble bath either. There is no staying power to it. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this to others. It’s too stripping, and there’s no benefits to it other than the scent. It’s not worth $18, I think you’re better off with a drugstore $4 body wash. I’d rate this a 1/5. philosophy - Christmas Cookie
Great cleanser for dry skin
I was surprised how well this actually works!FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm 🔥This product is vegan, cruelty-free. I have dry and sensitive skin and this removes all of my makeup even my water proof eye liner and mascara. It leaves my skin feeling clean yet moisturized. 🔥First things first, it's a beautiful container and comes with a little plastic spatula so you don't have to dig your dirty heads into the container. I'm used to makeup removers taking a bit of scrubbing to get things off, but this does exactly what is says, and melts off. I was shocked. It really truly works. 🔥The other thing that I love is it has a really subtle smell. 😂😂😂ONE THING: DO NOT PUT ON EYES. I suggest the Sens eyes from Makeup forever. This doesn't hurt your eyes, but my vision gets so blurry afterwards, that I can't see.

k beauty moisturizer
the I DEW CARE - Say You Dew Moisturizing Vitamin C Gel + Cream is one of my favorite moisturizers in my rotation right now. this is a bi-phase moisturizer that contains cream and gel that you mix together to form a gel-water combo. it contains vitamin c and lemon extract which are meant to brighten your skin. I think it is a great daytime moisturizer that helps moisture my skin and give it an awesome brightening boost thanks to the vitamin c. the texture is a watery cream (thanks to the bi-phase components!) and feels nice and light on the skin while still being very moisturizing. I’ve been using this for around 4 months and love it. I recommend this to anyone looking for a new am moisturizer containing vitamin c. I think it’s worth the price at $29 because it leaves me with such bright and glowy and moisturized skin. 5/5 stars!

Great masque for dehydrated skin✨💦
Recently I purchased this 5 mins sheet masque as my skin is getting dehydrated in this winter and I wanted this masque to give it a shot! It has hyaluronic acid and vitamin b5 which really helps my skin to feel hydrated and plump. I personally don’t like sheet masque as much as regular masque but this one surprisingly worked out well. I paid $30 for pack of 4 that which is little pricey for only 4 masks but because it’s worked out well my skin felt hydrated I guess I ll buy it with some deals 😉 I mostly use at night and I don’t rinse my face after just use that serum and sleep after I remove my masque 😊 I think it’s a good masque to try if u have really dehydrated skin :) patchology - Perfect Weekend FlashMasque Sheet Mask Kit
