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!

Nature Republic Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser
NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser I got this cleanser because it’s getting so cold and my skin is getting so dry and flaky. I have to kind of alternate between this one and the last Holika Holika one I posted about. This is more to calm my skin rather than clear any blemishes, and my skin does feel hydrated after use.
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!!!
Aloe Vera Toner by Nature Republic
One of my plant-based favs, soothing Aloe Vera Toner! After my cleansing routine and before my moisturizers/cream/serum, I dab a few drops of this on a facial pad. Patting gently on areas of my face, especially the T-zone. It's great for balancing the pH levels of the skin as well as removing any excess makeup/dirt/oil/impurities. I love how this product is made from natural ingredients without any harsh chemicals that can sting my face. It's Not tested on animals. Good, healthy skin starts with natural regimens. I purchased my bottle at Harmon Face Value for $11.99*NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 90% Toner
Bathroom Cabinet Organization!
Here are my skincare products that I use, all nice and tidy! My daily skincare routine consists of cleansing, toning, moisturizing, hydrating, spot treatments, and rejuvenating! Ready for some recommendations?!... bioClarity - BioClarity Cleanse is my favorite cleanser for my skin. It cleans any impurities, smells super nice, and contains plant-based natural ingredients. I recommend this cleanser to people who have even the most sensitive skin, it Doesn't irritate. NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 90% Toner is what I use after cleansing, a few drops on a cotton pad and dab lighty on my face to remove any remaining dirt or makeup. My advice is to never skip toning, it brightens up dull, stressed skin and maintains the pH levels. bioClarity - Restore is the holy grail, it's super light and soothes my skin before applying my serums and moisturizers. It's natural ingredient is Floralux, derived in plants! bioClarity - Clarifying Masque I use this masque once or twice a week to detox and relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine lol. It's great in removing extra sebum, dirt, oil, and makeup from your pores. It also helps with keeping your skin calm via anti-inflammatory properties. bioClarity - Treat Complexion Perfection is the perfect Spot Treatment during those stressful times. Just dab on any blemish(s) that you may have. It helps to dry out the pimple(s) and heal the area(s) faster. Again, all the bioClarity products are clean, plant-based, vegan, free from all the harsh chemicals. This is why most of my products have been bioClarity, I love them so much! I highly recommend for health and wellness reasons.
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.
Three must-haves from Target
Cherie post 1: Three favorites from Target: Not your Mothers, All eyes on me, 10 in 1 hair perfector. NOT YOUR MOTHER'S - All Eyes On Me 10-in-1 Hair Perfector OMG. I love this stuff! If you have dry, damaged, and easily tangled hair like me this is going to be your new haircare BFF. I have naturally thick, coarse long hair that also gets super oily after 2 days on no wash. I apply this into the middle and end strands to wet hair and boom! It tame smy frizz, detangles, softens without oily sticky feeling, smells AMAZING and is also a heat protectant! I also use it to re moisturize my hair on my non-wash days. Megababe thigh rescue megababe - Thigh Rescue This is an anti-friction stick for your thighs. When I say this is the best product invented, i'm not over-exaggerating! If you get thigh chafe in the summer, the moment you try this you’re gonna be like “why on earth did I wait this long to try this?! The years of my thick-thigh life would've been so much better if this was in my life!” It's definitely a summer must-have. I like to keep it in my purse, for easy re-application :) Nature Republic Aloe Vera Foam CleanserNATURE REPUBLIC - Foam Smoothing Facial Cleanser I always come back to this cleanser, it’s my favorite drugstore cleanser. It foams and applies really nicely, it is super clarifying but non-drying! It has a budget friendly price tag too, $7.99 at Target! I have sensitive skin and it doesn’t irritate or make my skin red :)

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!
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 Sheet Mask Review
I have gone through several of these Nature Repulic sheet masks. We live pretty close to Hmart and inside they have this little K-beauty boutique and so my mom and I always stock up on these when we run out. They are pretty affordable and sometimes are on sale for BOGO or $10 for 10. My favorite ones are the Real Nature Mask Sheet in Royal Jelly (the honey one). The Royal jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used apparently in providing nutrition to bee larvae and for queen bees. The benefits for us (putting it on our face) is nourishment and an improvement in skin texture. It is said to make the skin plump and hydrated and aid with wrinkle prevention. Sounds good to me! The royal jelly used in this mask is gathered from Kang-won province from Korea, which is apparently famous for bee farming. I didn’t know that. I only knew that Kang-won province was famous for their seafoods LOL. The cotton on this sheet mask wraps so nicely on the face and remains on there until I remove it off. I can walk around and do other things with this mask on which is a huge plus because I can multi-task while masking. It really leaves my face plump and very well hydrated. It definitely is worth to try because the mask is deeply saturated with the essence. It also has enough essence left in the pouch to use on my arms and legs. 5/5 from me. So affordable, so good.

NATURE REPUBLIC-Real Nature Mask Sheet
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
My Go-To Lazy Day Routine!
Everybody suffers from extreme laziness now and then. On such days, you are way too tired to even get up and wash your face, let alone do an elaborate skincare routine. I am the same. Some days I am so exhausted from work and never-ending chores that all I want to do at night is go to bed. However, my skin suffered majorly due to this. Therefore, I decided to come up with a small 3 step – cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize – routine for such days using all the products that I already had at home. Now before I divulge into it, let me put up a fair disclaimer. I have combination to oily skin, with more emphasis on oily. I have no such skin conditions except for extra-large pores and occasional acne with my menstrual cycle. Alright so the first step in my routine is double cleansing and I cannot ignore it for the life of me. Do you know why? I travel for almost two hours daily and there is a lot of dirt and build upon my face by the end of the day. The Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel Face Wash BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser I use The Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm for the first step and follow up with the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel Face Wash (picture below). Both products are excellent for oily skin and they do a great job of making your skin squeaky clean. I cannot endorse this cleansing balm enough, legit a Holy Grail product for me. It melts my makeup like witchcraft and leaves my skin without even a trace of it. Safe to say, I am obsessed with it! Loreal exfoliate cleanser L'ORÉAL - Pure Clay Cleanser Exfoliate & Refine The next step is exfoliation. No fancy product used here, just the good old Loreal exfoliate cleanser for a quick massage. When I am feeling extra lazy, I just skip the second part of double cleansing and go on with this product after the cleansing balm. Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer Lastly, I go on with my trusted Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel and call it a day. I know all of these steps are extremely simple and beginner level. But honestly, that was what I was aiming for with this simple routine. It keeps my skin healthy and saves me from the trouble of going through with my normal routine. Don’t get me wrong I love that one as well, but this one is also equally good! I highly recommend you all to set up a three-step routine for such days and try this one out!
