Love K Beauty? Try I Dew Care!
I Dew Care kindly gifted me their Vitamin C lip sleeping mask. All I have to say is, move over Laneige sleeping mask. This is a potted, pink lip mask that thankfully comes with a little scooper. I use this product every night before I go to bed. If you’re looking for softer and smoother lips, this is a great option! Not only is the packaging uber cute, the formulation of the product is superb. After I’ve completed my skincare and brushed my teeth, I spread a little bit of this on my lips. You really only need a little, because it does go a long way. I also really enjoy using this after I exfoliate my lips too. It provides so many softening properties, that could be needed after some physical lip exfoliation. In addition, you get a good amount of product for around $16. You probably could get this product for even cheaper, if you’re able to catch it during an Ulta sale. I don’t have many K beauty items in my collection, but so far I haven’t been failed by them. In addition, I haven’t experience any irritation or anything with this item. I will continue using this lip mask from I Dew Care. If you’re in need of a good lip sleeping mask, definitely check this one out. I highly recommend.

Wet N’ Wild Pac Man Lip Scrub!
This year Wet N’ Wild released a pac man collection that included this scrumptious lip scrub. Inspired by the pac man theme, this is the “bonus fruit” lip scrub. This product literally smells amazing, a very similar smell to sweet fruit of course. However, the scent isn’t over powering. As you can see in the picture, the product is formulated with fine sugar to help exfoliate dry skin and texture. I’m so glad I was able to get my hands on this product and it only cost about $4. This is one of the best lip scrubs I’ve used in a while. Personally, I try to use lip scrubs at night with a good hydrating balm on top. After completing my skincare routine and brushing my teeth, I take a little of this and rub it around on my lips. I try so hard to avoid licking it off, so I gently dab it off with a towel after a few seconds of exfoliating. My lips instantly feel softer and more smooth after use. However, if your lips are too dry be careful not to over exfoliate with this product. In addition, this product is packed with tons of oils and vitamin e to help keep my lips soft! If you’re able to still get this specific product (I think it’s still available at CVS), I recommend giving this lip scrub a try. wet n wild - PAC-MAN Bonus Fruit Lip Scrub

When you need some oil control, BLOT!
I always keep a pack of NYX oil blotting sheets in my handbag. You can get these sheets for $3-$6, depending on where you get them from. They are super thin sheets of paper, that can be used to blot excess oil. I have super oily skin and it gets progressively worse throughout the day. I will take a few of these sheets and lightly dab where the oil is on my face. I recommend that you use a dabbing motion, opposed to dragging the paper across your face. Even though I wear makeup all day, a dabbing motion will also make sure you aren’t wiping your makeup off during the process. As long as I do that, I have minimal makeup come off my face when I use these. There’s also tons of different blotting papers on the market, but currently I am enjoying these NYX ones. I have one other pack ready to go whenever I empty this one. These are lightweight and the packaging takes up almost no space. Therefore, they’re easy to tote around all day. Blotting papers are also a more convenient option than touching up with a powder or something. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for an oil control item, especially since they’re usually reasonably priced.

I’d rather get coal than Glossier’s [Mint] BDC.
Sadly, Glossier’s balm dot com is one of the worst glossier products and lip balms in general, that I have ever tried. Initially, I was head over heels for the mint sensation this product provides. Then I quickly realized how often I needed to reapply this product. This specific mint balm gives a tingly mint sensation on the lips and the product itself is also clear. I was under the assumption that this would function as a regular lip balm would, something that’s suppose to be hydrating on the lips. However, this item just made my lips sooo incredibly dry. I tried to power through this product in attempt to use it up, but it actually made my lips so dry they cracked and bled. I’ve heard that this is an item made to be “layered” on top of other more hydrating balms, but no one has time for that. I’m rather disappointed in this product, especially since it’s priced at an absurd $12. I would not recommend this product to anyone that’s in need of a good lip balm. I think Glossier makes some other well formulated items, however this isn’t one of them. I might give the tinted versions a try, but unless this is reformulated, I don’t plan on repurchasing.
In need of a sssimple sheet mask?
Pictured here is the Simple Water Boost Hydrating Sheet Mask, for sensitive skin experts. It’s like this sheet mask was made specifically for me and my sensitive skin. This is a one time use sheet mask that’s saturated with serums to help hydrate and boost your skin. Sheet masks can be a fun additional step in your routine. I prefer to use my sheet masks during my night time routines. This way I can wake up with hydrated, brighter looking skin the following day. This product helps promote more hydrated skin, in efforts to avoid dryness and dullness. I pop this sheet mask on after washing my face, let it sit for approximately 15 minutes, and then I remove the sheet mask. Make sure to pat the additional serum into your skin, so that you can soak up all that goodness. If you’re interested in trying Simple, I do recommend this specific sheet mask and this brand in general. Simple does put effort in making products for people who suffer from sensitive, acne-prone skin. In addition, the brand can be relatively expensive. In fact, I’ve found a few of their items in my local TJ Maxx stores too.
Love a good caffeine eye serum!
Are you looking for an affordable eye cream or eye serum? I highly recommend checking out the Inkey List’s Caffeine eye cream. I was able to snag this item from Sephora, for a relatively inexpensive price. This is a white colored product that comes in a nice squeeze tube package. The formula is light and airy almost. Every morning and night I pop a few little dots of this under my eyes and gently pat it in with my ring fingers. This product surprisingly gives my eyes a somewhat brighter, more awake appearance. I can’t vouch if this helps minimize eye bags, but it does help brighten tired eyes. I’ve been using this for almost two months now and I do plan to repurchase in the future. It’s inexpensive and it’s great for my sensitive skin. I also really prefer the packaging, as it makes application mess free and quick. I highly recommend this item and the Inkey list brand in general, for affordable and effective skincare products.

Ew the worst worst mask evuuuuh 👎🙅🏻♀️
I'd rather get coal than... the skinfood black sugar honey wash off mask! Gosh it’s the worst. 💔 • This product is a skin-softening exfoliating mask that contains mineral-rich black sugar and moisturizing honey for soft, glowing skin. To use, shake the product, so as to mix the product, which seperates (as you’ll see in the photos above). Use this for max of 15 mins. • This exfoliating/hydrating mask targets clogged pores and dull skin. • It is heavily, heavily fragranced. It smells beyond sweet, yet skincare-ish. I can’t get the smell off my hand, and it’s been about an hour since I washed off the product. ‼️ • I have used this product since I bought it, about one year ago. I decided to try it because I wanted to test out the brand, skinfood. I bought this along with the watermelon mask and the snail sheet masks. Guess what??? I HATED THEM ALL 💯 I dislike the brand and will never purchase their products again. No joke. • I recommend it to no one because the black sugar granules are way too harsh for skin. For real. Every time I used it, and I used it plenty of times, my skin suffered for weeks after. It was horrible testing this one out in particular. • Not worth the $14 or so I spent when I bought this at Ulta. • 1/5, only because I won’t rank anything a 0, but seriously – save your coins. This sucks. 🌟💤
SKINFOOD-Black Sugar Honey Mask Wash Off
No, I don’t want no (fresh sugar) scrub 🎤🎶
fresh | sugar lip polish: gently exfoliates and conditions 😛 o The packaging states that sugar is a natural humectant, drawing moisture to the lips. Thus, this product leaves the lips soft and smooth – I agree & disagree… while I agree that it gently exfoliates, I think that’s the reason it does not leave the lips soft and smooth. Perhaps it does hydrate the lips, but every time I use it, my lips are just as crusty once the scrub comes off lol honestly it doesn’t work for it. I much prefer the original elf lip exfoliator lippie, which is much more abrasive and actually works at exfoliating the dead skin cells that make for crusty lips 😅😂 o I bought this three years ago and used it for 6 months or so. I gave up on it pretty quick and, shortly thereafter, I found a replacement (the elf lippie). I think this lip scrub is heavily fragranced, but it’s a sweet scent that’s bothersome. I never thought I would hate on something sweet, but this sucks. The sweet scent translates into the most disgusting taste, which is inevitable if you use this lip scrub often. You’re going to taste the nasty taste I’m writing about lol 🤢🥴 o I recommend this to anyone who ~ literally ~ want a gentle exfoliation… so, if you have hydrated lips on the regular, then you can use this without hating on it (given that you are ok with fragrance)🤔 o I don’t think this lip scrub is worth more than the elf lip exfoliator, which usually retails for $3. I can’t believe fresh sells this for $24… 😱😔 o Truuuust, this is not worth it o I rate this 1 out of 5… again, bc I don’t give 0 ratings lol 🌟

Ceramide-y nice sheet mask
o Etude House | CERAMIDE sheet mask: deep moisturizing + reinforce the skin barrier o This is marketed as a daily sheet mask made of breathable 0.2mm sheet, which delivers essence directly to the skin. To use, cleanse, tone, then apply sheet for 10-20 minutes. After removing the sheet, work product into skin. o Ceramide quenches dry skin, giving it a rich, deep moisture. It helps strengthen the skin barrier, retaining moisture for long periods. This is an emulsion type essence. o I received this recently, as a holiday gift from one of my g-friends⛄️🎁 She gifted five straight from south korea to me. She’s the best and so thoughtful, knowing I’m obsessed with k-beauty. I’m so annoying though because I don’t mess with some ingredients included in 3 of the masks. I narrowed it down to two that I f* with and then chose the ceramide mask as the one I would try out first. o I wore this mask for 20 minutes and had an overall positive experience. I think etude house emphasizes the 0.2mm size because the sheet mask is not flimsy; its thick and feels super comfortable. Once settled in, it holds well onto the face, although the mouth hole is a little to low for my face so my lips are covered in essence. The mask is soaked in a milky white essence. And it doesn’t have a strong fragrance; there is no sting. 😍☺️ o I believe this was worth it, though I am very biased because this was a gift. I looked it up and it costs 1.20 on the etude house website. That’s soooo appropriate. I think it is worth the cost for sure ✨⭐️ I recommend it to anyone who enjoys sheet masks and wants one that’s a lil more lux than what you’ll find at any drugstore o Rating 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 💎 loved this! Maybe I’ll have to try them all! Lol. Ninja says his fav is the pomegranate 😂
love the cosrx toner still after 2 years of use
Cosrx | Galactomyces alcohol-free toner | $11 o This is marketed as an alcohol-free toner. It is a clear liquid. The bottle has a spray nozzle. The mist is not necessarily fine, but it doesn’t matter to me because I spray the product into my hands then apply to my face. 🤲🏼🙀 o The shelf life is one year, but I finished a bottle within 6 months before. I have been using the second bottle inconsistently for the past 3 months. 😬 o I decided to try this because I wanted an alcohol-free toner specifically and I generally liked most of the ingredient lists for cos rx products. I really liked the the first bottle, but wanted to try a new toner. Sure enough, I found myself repurchasing the cosrx after I finished that new toner lol o I still really like this product. 🤩😍♥️ I’ve used it on and off for over two years and I’m obsessed so good o This is totally worth the price I recommend it especially for people with sensitive skin, because it has never caused me irritation or discomfort. It’s ideal even though you don’t notice how well it works, that is until you replace it w the new new (which you don’t like as much anyway whoops) ✨⭐️ o Rating 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
JayJun Rose Blossom Sheet Mask and Eye Gel Mask
I am a huge fan of JayJun products. I’ve tried several of the brand’s sheet masks, a face cream, and a cleanser. For the price point, they are high quality KBeauty brand with good products that I would recommend to anyone looking to get into Skincare. The rose blossom mask is an antioxidant mask meant to moisturize the skin, and the eye gel patch does the same thing. The fit on the sheet mask was great, and it was full of nourishing essence that was thick enough that it did not drip down your face when you were wearing the mask. I layered the sheet mask over the eye gel and a brightening serum. I left this on for about 40 minutes, then moved the mask to my neck. I was left with really plump and moisturized skin, and it was a spa-like experience. I did not need my nightly moisturizer, and I woke up with really beautiful skin. I think these retail for about $3, but you can often find them on sale or promotion. I was quite pleased with these products! *i was gifted the products pictured, but I have bought other JayJun products in the past*JAYJUN - Roselle Tea Eye Gel Patch
JAYJUN-Roselle Tea Eye Gel Patch
JayJun has great KBeauty skincare!
⭐️ 𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄 ⭐️ JayJun, Anti-Dust Intensive Cream ($20, currently 30% off on the brand website) ——————— ⇛Beauty (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️): This is an intensive but non greasy moisturizing cream with calming properties. The texture on this is really cool. It’s a rich cream but spreads like a gel, it’s an interesting sensory experience. I love how affordable this is, while feeling luxe. The packaging is quite beautiful, and you get a substantial amount. I was surprised to learn that this is $20, I feel like comparable creams are in the $30-35 price range. It had meadow foam (good for sealing in moisture), and ginger root oil (soothing). It does have a slight fragrance (added), and some denatured alcohol (second to last ingredient). This is suited for normal to dry skin, and has complimentary products in the same line. I also had a chance to try out the Rose Blossom Mask and the Roselle Tea Eye Gel Patch. I loved layering these (watch the video), and really enjoyed how plump and moisturizer my face felt after. It was a spa-like experience, and both masks felt high quality. At around $3/piece, I would recommend these for special occasions. ——————— ⇛Business (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, cruelty-free): I have used a few JayJun products and I quite enjoy them. I think they are a great, affordable line of Kbeauty that perform and feel better than how they are priced. The packaging makes then feel way more luxe than the price point. You can find them on promo (right now, extra 30% off their site), and I would definitely try other products in this and other lines. ——————— I was provided this product complimentary for review purposes
