Sep. 8, 2020
|| S:um37 Time Energy || _______________________♥️______________________ ♥️ Skin Resetting Refining Toner: ✔️Refreshing citrus scent ✔️Moisturizing on its own (great for exercising) ✔️Bottle dispenses a drop at a time (easy to control and a drop is enough for entire face) . ♥️ Skin Resetting Softening Emulsion: ✔️Lemon scent ✔️Very smooth ✔️Spreads easily ✔️Absorbs well . . ♥️ Skin Resetting Moist Firming Cream: ✔️Super lightweight ✔️Very moisturizing ✔️Non-greasy ✔️Absorbs well ✔️Comes with its own scooper that can be magnetically attracted on the cover's top _______________________♥️______________________ . ♥️Final thought: I highly recommend these fermented products if you want to invest in your skin! These bottles are gorgeous! They didn't break my skin out rather they were the reason why my skin improved drastically from patchy eczema and acne skin to clearer skin. But ✖️they are pricey so that can be the largest drawback for these products. But they did last 8 months for me-considered long lol .
su:m37°Secret Enhancing EmulsionA Lip Tint That Packs a Hydrating, and Colorful, Punch
I picked these up in Beijing a couple years ago and they’re pretty nice! The versions I have are definitely the old packaging and the slightly changed the name. These lip tints are pretty good, but not as good as the Tony Moly ones. I find the color fades so you have to put it on in a few layers. It can also be a little drying. But the colors are nice and give a stain as well. Pretty sure mine are expired now 😬😬😬 but I don’t want to throw them away since they’re a souvenir from China. What would y’all do?
HOLIKA HOLIKAWater Drop Tint BombA Best-Selling Snail Essence
This is one of cosrx’s best-selling products and I’m not surprised why. It’s too good for words!! This is actually one of the first Korean products I’ve tried and I’ve loved it since day 1. It is super calming, hydrating, and makes my skin so smooth and supple. I love how it goes so well with other products even the strong ones! If you haven’t tried this yet then wydd!! 🙌🏼J BeautyA Powder Face-Wash With Exfoliating Enzymes
This is a perfect face wash if you have oily or combination skin like mine. It is a foaming face wash that exfoliates very gently. Texture is powder at first and once you mix with water, it lathers very nicely. DHC is a Japanese beauty (J-beauty) product line and I’ve been interested in trying them for a long time! It finally came to ULTA last year and I tried it for the first time. I’ve been in love since then. I like how gentle this face wash is and I recommend it for anyone with irritated skin. The price is affordable and totally worth it.Queen Of Hydration: A Hyularonic Acid Lotion
A J-Beauty treasure About the product: The contains five types of hyaluronic acid plus urea to lock in moisture and keep skin hydrated longer. It also has a skin pH-balanced formulation contains no fragrances, mineral oils, alcohols and artificial/added coloring. The bottle is a hard plastic. How to use: After cleansing, rub lotion between palms then pat into your face. It can be used morning and night. Best for dry, dehydrated skin. I first tried this product during the week I went to visit be family during the holidays. I went into my sister’s bathroom every day for my trip’s duration to use it. i definitely noticed a difference in my skin. When I got home and knew I had to get it. I have waxed on about my oily skin in plenty of videos and since my skin overproduces oily because it is dehydrated this helps. My skin drinks it up. It doesn’t pill when I do the rest of my skin care so that is a major plus. There are similar other products from this brand that target different concerns. Recommend? Yes!!!! Specs: 5 oz./170 mL for $14.40 on Amazon. Note: Since this product is a J-Beauty brand, the instructions on the bottle are in Japanese.
HADALABOGokujyun Premium LotionA Conditioning Gel That Preps Your Skin for Moisturizer
Hatomugi Skin Conditioning Gel is a conditioning gel as the name suggests. Its not a moisturizer but supposed to be used before moisturizer or as a type of serum. It contains Job’s Tear extract which is its main and selling moisturizing ingredient. It’s super lightweight and perfect for every skin type. Where people will freak out is when I say this contains parabens. Yes that’s right. And I still find it good. It’s in a such low percentage that I really don’t care. Is this my main source of moisture though? No. But do I still like the gel? Yes! It moisturizes so well and leaves the skin so plump. It’s such a best seller in Japan and has won multiple awards over there. The price point isn’t bad and it’s a totally neutral and nice step in a skincare routine. For people not scared of preservatives, yes I would still recommend this gel. Again, is it my favorite? No. But it’s damn good. 🤷🏻♀️

Preserving My Curls Overnight
This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (link in my bio) if you are interested! 😊

are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
cystic acne progress
cystic acne is a journey like no other. It’s unpredictable and frustrating. But, you have to celebrate small wins whenever possible. almost 2 weeks ago, I woke up with my cheek severely inflammed having sprouted a ton of cysts seemingly overnight. big, red, painful ones. unfortunately, my cystic acne is very much hormone, stress, and diet driven which makes it hard to manage at times. today, I can finally appreciate that I was successful in bringing the inflammation down. eight days may seem like a long time but in the world of cystic acne, that’s huge progress! It looks and feels so much more comfortable. if you use tretinoin, stick with it! I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel and while no day is perfect when you’re prone to cystic acne, it does get better. feel free to ask me all your cystic acne questions!
