What to do with your quarantine Eyebrows??
I am no expert on doing my own brows. Don’t know about other states but here in California, most of our eyebrows threading salon haven’t resume their business. I have no knowledge of eyebrows shape whatsoever. I usually go to the salon and they usually ask me if I need ‘clean up’ and I’d be like alright. Now that I really wonder what ‘does clean up’ actually mean... just take out the extra hair under my brows maybe?? because that’s pretty much what I did. First, I made hot coffee and wet a make up removal pad, place it on the mug to heat the pad, then place the pad on eyebrow for a few seconds. It helps the pore opens up and less painful. Next, I applied aloe from my fridge. Wash it off after 5mins. No redness or itch. Then, I use skone brow pen to fill up this shape. I got this from my ipsy subscription. I also like Anastasia’s ashes brownish color, highly recommend if you have red hair. So, what do you think about my brows?? 🧏🏻♀️ If that’s clean up, is it even necessary going back to threading salon??🤷🏻♀️ NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel skone - Brow Wand ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil

Nature Republic Real Nature Mask Sheet
I really love this mask NATURE REPUBLIC - Real Nature Mask Sheet It so refreshing and it make your skin hydrated and moisturize. This mask is made in Korea and why should you use it well... The mask keeps moisture in contact with your skin for as long as you wear it and it’s designed to rest on the curves of your face. Korean sheet mask don’t work on fixing wrinkle so won’t be recommending that and I like to put the sheet mask in the fridge for a cooling effect I saw the YouTuber Wengie does that if your skin need a wake me up! Where to buy? You can get this at your local Korean supermarket they sell a bunch of sheet mask from Korea Or https://www.naturerepublicusa.com/products/real-nature-orange-mask-sheet On EBay And Amazon.
My Gateway into Skincare: Sheet Masks
NATURE REPUBLIC - Real Nature Mask Sheet (Sheet Mask Category) Korean sheet masks were my gateway into skincare. When I turned sixteen, I struck a sudden and not so surprising interest in those adorable sheet mask sets by Holika Holika, Etude House, and Innisfree just to name a few. One birthday, I was gifted this eye-catching, nature-touting set by Nature Republic. The set included avocado, acai, rose, shea butter, and my favorite - royal jelly! Each one had a different pick-me-up such as tightening, brightening, and “replenishing.” Despite my teenage fascination, I can’t really say any one of these masks had a distinct effect on my complexion. As well, the cloth sheets themselves were of lower quality and tore rather easily, unable to withstand the classic jelly thick serum that they’re soaked in. The texture itself for each mask was the same - a cool solution of medium viscosity. No noticeable fragrance either. To spotlight just one, the Royal Jelly mask promised to nourish the skin and reduce wrinkles. Although my skin did feel more hydrated afterwards, its “nourishment” was no more impressive than that of any standard face cream. I don’t think the Royal Jelly’s properties (anti-bacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory) really shone in this mask, and am doubtful that no matter how long I would’ve used it, the mask would’ve reduced the appearance of any wrinkles. In sum, Nature Republic’s sheet mask set is less of a life-changer and more of a sweet treat for your skin i.e. when getting ready for a party. This product isn’t a shelf must-have, but a rather affordable (about $15) gift for those youngins sparking an interest in skincare!

Hope you enjoy!🥰 👩🏻🔬When it comes to my daily skin care routine I try to keep it simple. In the morning I only use my cleanser, eye gel, moisturizer, sunscreen and lip balm. At night I change it up a bit by adding a few serums or acne treatment if needed. I also add a scrub or a mask when needed. Products used: 🌟Cleanser: Makes my face so soft and clean. NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser 🌙Eye Gel: currently using the neutrogena but prefer the 40Carrots eye gel it’s so good it refreshes while also moisturizing and it’s lightweight.

Cleansers: Skincare the Korean Way
Hey hey and another big heeeeeyyyyy~~~ So I'm back. Part 3? 4? I'm gonna go with part 4. Today is very important because I will be talking about the beginning of every skincare routine and arguably the most important VERY IMPORTANT part of every routine... CLEANSING!!! Cleansing is the best part of my day because after, I feel refreshed, clean, and literally 10x prettier (even if I’m not). ON TO THE CONTENT!!! 일단... First off... Take off your makeup. OFF WITH THE MAKEUP I TELL YOU!!! I use makeup wipes first, bur then I have to follow micellar water. Honestly, any one will do. I just use the GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover because it was a gift from a fan (thank you Elle from the meet and greet~~). Next, I talk about this a alot. Soo'AE - HEMP DREAMS CLEANSING OIL I’ve talked about it and I will talk about it again. Literally melts all that nasty off. Not only does it deep cleanse, but it hydrates as well. Can’t say the same thing about most other oil cleansers I’ve tried. Oil cleansing is the first part of double (or triple) cleansing. This clears your face of oil based nasty like sebum, SPF, makeup, any surface level pollutants from outside, etc. Super important because foam, water based cleansers can’t get that out. Next, we have to follow with my favorite foam cleasners, super light and airy. NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser Talked about this earlier as well, super hydrating definitely has soothing effects. Since I tend to burn easily, if I have any redness from going outside, all gone once I’m done with this. The second cleanser I have to praise is the innisfree - Pore Clearing Facial Foam This stuff is heavenly. Not only does it deep cleanse my pores, it makes them seem smaller, absorbs any sebum, and also has a refreshing scent. All natural scent!!! The volcanic scoria dissolves after some time while washing your face. So the beads are not chemical or not a non-natural ingredient. It feels like you scrub your face, like a little bit, but it's also nice that the ingredient dissolves after awhile while washing your face. These are just some of my favorites, but of course you can use different products based on your skin type and your needs!!! I also recommend double cleansing by using an oil based cleanser and then a water based foam cleanser just because it’s better for my skin!!! Stay clean guys!!!
SKINCARE CAN BE CHEAP!!! All skin types
I try different budgetary products, because I am confident that skincare routine can be cheap, if find the right products!!! Here are all of the ones I have finished to the empty bottle, and ready to give the opinion! DRY, SENSITIVE AND ACNE PRONE SKIN TYPES WILL LIKE: CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser It is well hyped, but for a reason. CERAVE is the brand, that cares about your skin balance and barrier. It is even approved by dermatology associations. spectro - Jel Cleanser Also very happy with the product! Even though my skin is combination, and with clogged pores, it totally improved the quality of my skin. (I used the one for dry skin) Used it for after-piercing experience, as it is ph balanced. Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser Also good quality and has dermatology appreciation, but less results with the skin. These are well known products, but I will just add up the important point. It does not go far from our skin PH(which is 6), that is why it keeps your ph balanced and healthy. BAD PART it is worse for cleaning, than the high ph products like: NOXZEMA - Classic Clean Moisturizing Cleansing Cream +Awesome cleaning, feels fresh because of menthol, leaves skin not too dried up, smooth. -did not give fast results, which I know is possible with other products NATURE REPUBLIC - Fresh Herb Peach Cleansing Foam +good cleaning, fresh skin -definitely dries up the skin a little HOWEVER, High ph product may dry, irritate your skin, that is why I would recommend it for OILY and COMBINATION SKIN TYPES. I will look into more products and let you guys know, what is a 5 star recommended product. (Everything listed above is based on my own experience. Please do a sample test for any new products you use)
Even before fully diving into the world of skin care, face mists has always been an essential for me. It’s one of those products that you never knew you needed until you’ve used one, especially in a tropical country like mine. Here are the ones that are currently in my stash. - >Cloud Cosmetics Pore Refresher - a good basic mist from a local brand that does what it says in it’s name: refresh. It has a mix of fresh rose water, mulberry, tomato, and cucumber to name a few. >Whamisa Organic Flowers Damask Rose Petal Mist - my current fave! It’s formulated with 90.3% organic ingredients, including damask rose extract and petals. This unique mist is water-free and instead relies on a blend of rose, chrysanthemum and aloe vera to help rehydrate dry skin. I also like how the cap is protective of the nozzle but that’s just me. >Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Mist - if you liked their aloe vera gel, then you’ll surely love this as well! I don’t use this very much so I can’t say a lot but my bf uses this and it works well with his oily skin. >Neogen H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray - my other favorite LOL! This is actually a bit different cause it’s a full-on serum just in a spray form. It has a very fine mist that repairs skin in a flash, some key ingredients are niacinamide and vitamin C that helps to brighten the skin. It’s a super easy to use product for days where you don’t have a lot of time so I rely on this a lot! >too cool for school Perfect Day Makeup Fixer - also different cause this acts as a setting spray. It helps seal your make-up keeping you fresh all day long. I like how fine the mist is, of course with your make-up already on you don’t want anything too strong and this is just right. The rose water and lemon infused formula keeps skin dewy, for added hydration as well. >The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Mist - stole this from my Mom cos she doesn’t use it, but this one is really good with boosting the radiance of your skin. This is one of their best sellers but personally I haven’t been reaching for this a lot because I’m not very fond of the peach smell, but if you’re into that you could give this a try!
Guys. I can't stop spraying this on myself! This is the nature republic Aloe vera air mist and it is one of the most refreshing things I've tried recently. The spray nozzle dispenses the finest, most even mist I've ever tried short of an aerosol spray. It's a super light liquid without stickiness at all and I can layer on a bazillion layers. Also super soothing and calming.
The struggles of combo / oily skin in the summer is very, very real for me, and I am sure the same for everyone else with these skin troubles. . I have seen the Nature Republic Aqua Watery Cream being posted around as a great occlusive for oil control and hydration for oily skin types. . The packaging looks more expensive than I thought it would. It’s a heavy glass jar, but it doesn’t come with a spatula, which I was disappointed with. Thankfully, I have lots of spare spatulas anyway, but I would’ve expected one given as standard. . The cream is more of a mix between a gel and light cream, and it does smell of a strong alcohol / floral scent which I am not too keen on. It is surprisingly pretty thick when applied to the skin and you do have to wait for it to dry down (about 5/10 minutes) before you can apply sunscreen. . As for the oil control, whilst it does dry down quite well, I still had a t-zone shine which appeared to get worse the more products you apply after it ie... sunscreen, cushion foundation. . I have therefore relegated this to my evening moisturiser for the warmer weather because I can’t rely on the oil control to get me through the day 😫 I am happy with it as an evening moisturiser though and will use the rest of the tub. Probably won’t repurchase this though to be honest so can't recommend to a friend.

NATURE REPUBLIC - Aqua, Super Aqua Max, Combination Watery Cream I really love the way this product feels on my skin. It glides on easily and dries quickly. My skin feels silky and smooth as a result. This really makes for both a great daytime or nighttime (or both) moisturizer. Recently, I have noticed that my skin wakes up rather oily (since the initial post of this review, it’s gotten better with the use of elta md SKINCARE - Barrier Renewal Complex ) so now when I do use it, it’s not as bad in the mornings. There are a few silicones in its ingredient list, including dimethicone. I actually think it’s the dimethicone that gives it that feeling of silkiness once it’s on the face (many makeup primers have a version of that in it). However, it is said that it’s an ingredient that should calm irritation, minimize redness, and protect the skin from further damage so it may not be all bad. So, not really sure ... I might do more research on it since I’ve read some sources say it’s not good for you (silicones apparently clog your pores)🤷🏻♀️ Other than that, I like it as a whole, especially that it feels very cooling to the skin when I put it on. Also a really nice fragrant scent (though some might not like that due to sensitivity to scents).

Great affordable kbeauty concealer
NATURE REPUBLIC - Dual concealer I recently bought this during a sale of BOGO at $16 for 2 because I was running out of the origins concealer I was using during my trip in NYC. And it’s dual (liquid vs stick)! That is basically $4 per side! I love affordable you guys! This concealer is my first kbeauty concealer and I’m so mad I never used one until now. It’s great! It applies easily into a soft matte that’s comfortable on skin and blends seamlessly onto my skin. I got the shade in 01 and it seems like it’s the only shade available. I admit the shade range is not forgiving at all, but I did rate it a five star because it’s a perfect shade for me and it seems like it’s exactly what I want. It hides my hyperpigmentation and pimples well & conceals my undereye dark circle nicely too. I will consider it buildable coverage with liquid concealer for lighter coverage and stick concealer for a heavier coverage. This concealer is perfect for me as I do like a more natural look now a day’s that still covers the flaws. It stays on very nicely throughout the day (even when I don’t wear primer- which I usually don’t lol). I usually use coola bb cream with this over my imperfections and I’m good to head out😝 by the end of the day, I still look fresh. I highly recommend this product! It’s one of those best purchases I’ve made kind of deal.
NATURE REPUBLIC-Dual concealer
My parents visited South Korea earlier this year and they sent me a ton of Nature Republic sheet masks. At first, I was like, “There is no way I’m getting through all of these.” There were at least 50. But now I’m grateful. These are some of the best sheet masks I’ve tried so far. The fit and adhesion are great, and aside from me keeping these in the fridge, they provided a cooling effect on their own that lasted the whole wear time. The essence is thin and almost gel-like, which I prefer over certain sheet masks that have a thicker, lotion-esque consistency. There is a bit of subtle fragrance, which I don’t mind because my skin isn’t sensitive to that. In fact, it’s quite pleasant! They provide the hydration I need during the colder months without leaving my face tacky, so it’s a total win. I’m actually not sure how much these sell for, but my mother seems to think they were worth the trip to Korea. I totally recommend these to any sheet mask lover. It’s a 5 out of 5 from me. NATURE REPUBLIC - Real Nature Mask Sheet
NATURE REPUBLIC-Real Nature Mask Sheet
naturere Green Derma line They feature centella asiatica as their star ingredient, which is one of my favorite botanical extracts in skincare because it is so soothing and calming! So far, I'm loving the Mild Foam Cleanser and the Mild Tonic. The cleanser is truly mild and makes a lovely gentle foam that doesn't irritate or dry out my sensitive skin. It was pH 5.5-6 according to my pH strips -- impressive!! The Mild Tonic is a lovely thicker hydrating toner that feels very soothing and does a great job restoring my hydration levels. It works perfectly as a first hydrating layer. I haven't tried the lotion yet but will update when I do! I have a feeling it'll be a lovely layer to put on under a facial oil!
Nature republic ALOE VERA!
This aloe vera product by Kbeauty brand Nature Republic is advertised to soothe and moisturize your skin. The texture/consistency of it is a gel. The gel seems to be thick at first, but when you apply it on your skin, it moves really easily and does not feel thick at all. I received this product as a gift from my good friend. I really like this product because it helps with redness from being under the sun for too long. I don’t really get sunburn, but my face does get red if I am under the sun for too long, even with sunscreen. I would apply this product after cleansing my face before sleeping, and the next morning, my face feels moisturized again. It really works! I also like that this product is very affordable, and you can buy it at nature republic online or in store. I would highly recommend this aloe vera products to people who get sun exposure and need to revive your skin afterwards. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️(5/5 stars)
NATURE REPUBLIC-Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel
Using this Manuka Honey Hydrogel Mask from Natural Republic tonight! My bff from college is getting married tomorrow and I need all the moisture and radiance I could get. 🍯 This mask claims to repair and maintain skin’s elasticity and moisture. Aside from that, it’ll also help in tightening the pores. I forgot how much I got this for but I also got the Aloe Vera. This mask splits into half, which makes it easier to adjust and fit on the face. The scent is relaxing and I actually didn’t notice it at first. Had this on for 30 minutes. It can be a bit tacky for the first few minutes until it dries. 💛 When I took off the mask, it still had essence and you can still use it on your neck, arm, chest. My pores got minimized and my skin looked healthier. Let’s see later when I wake up. Goodnight! ✨
