Good Molecules Caffeine Eye Patches Review
Good Molecules Caffeine Eye Patches Review
Happy Monday! A new week has begun! And I’m extra nervous because of my test this Saturday 😆 but let’s hope the week leading up to Saturday is good 😅 I have been gifted these @goodmolecules caffeine energizing hydrogel eye patches. I have been using these and honestly these are something that I needed without even knowing I needed it lol 😂. Balancing work and studying is hard and my eye bags started storing up with all the stress. ALL the stress. These have been so lovely at taming those bags! These are hydrogel patches that are soaked in serum and feels so cooling under my eyes. They contain 1% caffeine to help energize and reduce puffiness, licorice extract, and peptides. I have been using these before makeup and I do feel like my under eyes feel much more depuffed and well hydrated for makeup. So far all the products I have tried from this brand really has impressed me. I cannot wait to see the next thing they release 🤩. Thank you so much to @goodmolecules and @beautylish for this amazing gift 💕 #imsuchafan🤩 . . . *gifted but reviews are my own GOOD MOLECULES - Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches

Milani Make It Last Setting Spray
I for one am sooo excited that the weekend is here. It is also Spring Break for my students and most of them are going out of town so they won’t be here for me to tutor so 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 . . I have another #empty to share with you! I have finished this @milanicosmetics Make It Last Setting Spray and though I liked how it really did hold up to its claim, I would not repurchase it. It sets my powder and really does the job well in terms of locking in my makeup, I don’t really like the spray on it too much. It sprays quite well though, compared to other drug store setting sprays but it can get a bit aggressive. The alcohol scent also throws me off a little. While it was a good one for the price, I would not repurchase it again. . I recently picked up the Morphe Spray when they were having a 2 for 1 sale (the Jeffree Star collab) and I much prefer these. . What is your favorite setting sprays? Do you use setting sprays? Sometimes I get too lazy to go the extra steps but I definitely notice a difference when I use it vs. when I don’t. MILANI - Make It Last Setting Spray Prime + Correct + Set

Happy #TextureTuesday! I hope all of you are well and healthy. I know that right now Korea is pretty shaken with the Coronavirus and I was so disheartened when my trip to Korea was cancelled because of it. I was supposed to go the last week of Feb but our planes were all cancelled 😞. Hopefully this will all pass and that no more lives are lost 🙏🏻 Right now, I know prevention is quite crucial so let this be a PSA if it needs to be, 📣 WASH YOUR HANDS PEOPLE 📣. I work with kids and honestly these little boogers pick their nose and rub it all over the desk and sneeze without covering their mouths and so make sure you protect yourself. Anyways, I recently received this @goodmolecules clarify & cleanse bar and have been testing this out. I don’t generally use bar soaps because they tend to be quite drying on the skin but this one surprised me. Granted, its not like the most hydrating soap I’ve tried, but it is less stripping than all the other bar soaps I have tried. It foams up beautifully and is quite gentle. It doesn’t feel like it squeaky cleans my face but my skin feels thoroughly cleansed. Super impressed with this cleanser! It contains vegetable oil, kaolin, cocoa fruit powder, grape seed oil, tea tree oil, and salicylic acid. I definitely do smell the tea tree oil and it smells very fresh…and well…soapy 🤣. I use this as part of my pm routine because I like a more hydrating cleanser in the morning and so far so good 👍🏻. I make sure to mist my face with toner right away though. I love @goodmolecules and so far everything I’ve tried from them has been so good. They really focus on putting in the ingredients that are effective and safe while keeping those unnecessary ones out and honestly, at their price point, it is amazing. Thank you so much to @goodmolecules @beautylish team for the gift 💝 Have you tried this soap bar?

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer Review
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer Review
Happy Saturday! The weather is beautiful this weekend and so I planned to go study after work but my plans got delayed bc I had to run a lot of errands but I’m loving this cool/warm weather so I don’t mind too much. And on top of that good note, I finished my @narsissist creamy concealer! I don’t wear foundation anymore bc 1. I like a more natural look, 2. I don’t like the feeling of most foundations, and 3. I’m too lazy. So I just use concealer to conceal the troubled areas and finish with setting powder. I really enjoyed this concealer and I believe this tube lasted me for about 2 months. I took the stopper out and everything. The applicator I feel like does not do a great job at picking up the product because there were so much more left in the bottle when I took the stopper out (which I guess it makes sense). As for the product itself, it did a great job at concealing and for me it had a medium to full coverage. However I did notice that if I layered too much to cover up a blemish, it started to cake up and then pill even after I set it with a powder. I had to really watch how much I apply with this one. And I got the shade Madeleine and though it did work for me in December, it became a bit too dark for me. Which just means I got paler over the two months 😳. Overall, I did enjoy using this concealer but I don’t think I will repurchase it. I liked their soft matte complete concealer more and will likely purchase that than this. Right now though I am testing out the new Kosas concealer and so far I am liking it. I have only tried it twice so I need to use it more for a review...so stay tuned 🤗 What concealers are you trying out or loving? I want to try the MUFE one bc I’ve heard good things about that one.

New Favorite Perfume!
New Favorite Perfume!
When @sylvainedelacourte reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try their fragrances, I was so excited. I LOVE perfumes! I am quite particular about scents because apparently I was a dog in my past life and my nose is quite sensitive. I love wearing perfume because then I can just mask any bad smells that my nose picks up from walking outside or to my brother’s room (literally a dumpster 🤢). . Anyways, Sylvaine Delacourte has a lot of fragrances and it was so hard to pick one to try because they all were so attractive to me. The brand emphasizes on using natural and raw materials that contains no harmful chemicals (parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic dyes) and they are also made in France! They are also cruelty-free and environmentally friendly with recyclable packaging! I love having musk in my perfumes because it immediately makes me feel warm and cozy. So I chose their best-selling scent Dovana from their Musk Collection. This scent is described as a tender musk, fresh, light, and powdery (which I am all for). The notes of this perfume: -Neroli -Iris -Vanilla -Ambrette -Musk -Heliotrope -Rose -Sandalwood -Mandarin They also sent me a discovery box that featured all the scents in the musk collection. I have to say though, Dovana is my favorite. I love how light and soft the scent is and it really lasts a very long time! I love how it immediately makes me feel fresh but also cozy and warm. I have been using this everyday since I got it and I have gotten a lot of compliments 🥰 Thank you so much to Camilla from @sylvainedelacourte for this awesome gift! . . . *gifted but reviews are my own.

Kosas Lipfuel Review
Kosas Lipfuel Review
Happy Tuesday! Hope you guys are all doing well this week. It is quite gloomy and rainy here and I thought that would affect my mood but this week I’ve been feeling so energized and happy 😁 Hope this continues! I have been using this @kosas Lipfuel in the shade Pulse ever since I received the generous package from them. AND I AM OBSESSED! This is so hydrating but it feels so light on my lips. I almost forget that I am wearing anything but when I press my lips together, I still feel the moisture! I have worn this lip balm when I went my morning jog and it still kept my lips moisturized even when it was pretty cold and windy! I have an obsession over lip balms which has resulted in me having way too many but I think its safe to say that this Lipfuel is def in my top 3. On the website it says that Lipfuel uses an ultra-hydrating, gel-like network of konjac root to anchor the hyaluronic acid onto the lips. That sounds a lot of science and I am all here for it. It also contains wild mint to sooth and energize. @kosas graciously gifted me all three shades and I chose to open Pulse, a sheer warm tan color that really is my perfect MLBB shade. I love the packaging and how its so sleek and minimalistic. The only thing about the packaging is that sometimes it will not backtrack so I have to like push the lip balm down with my lips but honestly, that doesn’t bother me too much. Have you tried these Lipfuels? If so, what are your thoughts on them? *gifted but reviews are my own Kosas - port LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm

Boscia - Sake Hydrating and Brightening Serum⁣ ⁣ Boscia sent over the most generous package a few months ago and I've been loving incorporating this serum in my night routine.⁣ ⁣ What is it? A serum formulated to 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘩𝘺𝘥𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘦𝘯. Some of the highlighted ingredients are sake, sea whip, and caffeine which are surprisingly within the first 10 ingredients listed. I also researched the ingredients I was unfamiliar with to educate myself and you all, mainly from Paula's Choice, where professional journals of Dermatology and science libraries are referenced. The ingredients list is excellent.⁣ ⁣ What do you get? 1.7 fl oz of product for $50. Boscia is relatively inexpensive and can be found at retailers such as Ulta. This is definitely one of their most expensive items while the rest of the products are more affordable. For the amount of product I use each night (1-3 drops), I personally think this will take several months to get through. Comparing it to other Boscia products, I can see this being priced more around $36-$40. ⁣ ⁣ My Experience: Great so far! I really love using this at night to help hydrate my skin (paired with a great moisturizer is * chef's kiss*). It absorbs well and truly leaves my skin feeling quenched. I have some dry patches on my chin lately and this helps smooth it out and hydrate the area overnight. Occasionally I'll use this in my morning routine if my skin is feeling like it needs a pick me up or excessively dry. It gets the job done for sure!⁣ boscia - Sake Hydrating and Brightening Serum

First Laneige product which impressed me
First Laneige product which impressed me
Product claims: An overnight replenishing mask that delivers intense moisture to help soothe redness and strengthen the skin barrier for healthier, less stressed skin. Product target concerns: redness and dryness My experience: let me just tell you I never ever understood the hype behind laneige products because none of them worked for my skin. I had no expectations for this mask but OMG!! I got a deluxe size with one of my Sephora purchases and I wanted to pick up the full size only after one application! It’s so lightweight, so soothing, softening and I saw a lot of improvement in my skin redness. Also I used it for the the first time when I had an allergic reaction and I remember how my skin was so parched that night. It reduced my inflammation and really hydrated my skin. I use it twice a week and the consistency plus texture is really similar to summer fridays jet lag mask. Do I recommend this? Yes absolutely!! It’s an amazing dupe for SF jet lag Price: $34 for 2.0 oz

I’ve said this before in my stories, but I’m gonna say it again; this mask is as goops people say it is. The hype is real! What is this? This is a sleeping mask that’s supposed to help soothe redness, repair moisture barrier and overall improve the health of your skin. I’ve been using this mask every other day, and I can absolutely agree with those claims. This mask does an amazing job at repairing and calming the skin. Whenever my skin acts out and I use this mask, I always wake up with hydrated, calm skin. It’s very rich and creamy, and spreads like butter over the skin. It’s a perfect last step to any skincare routine. . . . Gifted LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Mask

All In One Moisturizer
I have been testing out @alliesofskin from past 2 weeks and these are my initial thoughts on their PEPTIDES AND ANTIOXIDANTS FIRMING DAILY TREATMENT ($109 - 50ml) . . To begin with, this is a leave on treatment which contains concentration of a treatment mask but with consistency of a moisturizer. It has 7 brighteners, 9 antioxidants. Key ingredients include palmitoyl tripeptide-8, marribium vulgare extract with glutathione antioxidant. It repairs damaged skin, defends against environmental stressors as well. It also contains fat soluble vitamin C, Teprenone and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 to reduce dark spots, large pores and wrinkles. It boosts collagen production and the cellular health of skin is prolonged with firmness and radiance. . . My experience: This was the first ever product I used which had so many claims and it kinda stressed me, but it definitely was worth it. I see this as a last step in my routine ( extra dry skin people might want to add a bit of oil in it or use it over a moisturizer) on top of my serums. To be honest, it took me 3 days to realise how great it was. For the first 3 days it was like any other moisturizer and I kinda started thinking is it worth $109? But more I used it, more I fell in love with it. Pores on my nose looked cleaner as never before, my skin looked radiant and even importantly I did not feel the need to use 10 different products to satisfy my skins needs. I have after 2 weeks of using it cut my routine into half - cleansing, serums and this DAILY TREATMENT. I would like to say, I feel my skin has felt it's best with this minimal yet effective routine. I do feel my skin is experiencing firmness better than before. I AM definitely in love with it and I look forward to my routines to use this daily treatment! . . PS: I kinda felt it's priced average for what Ingredients it contains. I would buy it even at a higher rate. This is the BEST COMPLIMENT I have ever given a skincare product @alliesofskin

Love this honey bear
Love this honey bear
one use and I’m already hooked on the @briogeo don’t despair, repair! honey moisture mask 🤤 fun fact: when my dad retired he decided to take up bee keeping (standard retirement hobby, amiright?) so here are some fun facts about why honey rocks from a beekeeper’s daughter:⠀ 🐝 besides all of the good things you get from eating it, honey is also a natural humectant (aka retains moisture) ⠀ 🐝 honey is an emollient (aka seals in the moisture) and has rich antioxidant properties⠀ 🐝 honey can promote cell growth, and can be used for wound healing and hair growth⠀ ⠀ There’s so much more, but moral of the story is honey is pretty SWEET, isn’t it?! Yeah- you didn’t think you were gonna get out of here without a bad pun, did you? 😉 I love that @briogeo has ethically sourced organic honey for this mask and is supporting small-scale farmers integrate beekeeping into their practices. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER AND #savethebees! And use this hair mask, bc is smells amazing and my hair is soft as silk now⠀ ⠀ *kindly gifted, but if you had to listen to my dad talk about bees as much as I do, you’d have your own opinions too Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair!

One line that has always hit i
One line that has always hit it out of the park for me is the kate somerville ExfoliKate line. One of my favorites is the Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. It bills it self as a “2 minute Hollywood facial” that uses a combination of physical and chemical exfoliants to polish skin into a radiant glow. ✨Ingredients: AHAs (lactic acid), BHAs (salicylic acid), fruit enzymes (pineapple, papaya, pumpkin) ✨Experience: It’s a moss green gel that smells like cinnamon. While there are silica grains for physical exfoliation, I let it sit on my face and don’t rub. It only takes 2 minutes of my time in the shower to get results. (Its recommended for use in the shower because the hot steam works with the ingredients better.) It’s more effective than a cleanser, but less strong than Drunk Elephant Babyfacial or the Peach and Lily Reboot Resurfacing Mask. ✨Recommended for: People who want to decongest their skin of blackheads or clogged pores using an AHA/physical exfoliant, but prefer quick wins rather than a drawn out routine.
