Etude House SoonJung pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser
Ever since I started using Korean skincare products, I’ve know that when it comes to my face routine I’m not going back. The Etude House SoonJung Whip Clean is one of my favorite facial cleansers I use on a daily basis. It’s supposed to gentle clean the skin while keeping it moisturized with a 6.5 pH and 98.9% naturally derived ingredients. It’s a foam texture and feels great on the skin. I’ve used this cleanser for 4 months and here’s what I think: My Experience I decided to try this cleanser because I was looking for a new one after using CosRX’s face wash for so long. The idea of foam seemed really nice and was one of the reasons I bought it. I like this face wash because it cleans very well and my skin feels great after. It’s gentle so it’s great for my sensitive skin and the pH of it doesn’t leave my skin stripped at all. It’s great. Overall Thoughts I would recommend this cleanser for all skin types because it’s the best. If you’re looking for a Korean face wash or one with a Low pH, this is the one for you. It’s price is at $13 on the Etude House website and I think that’s a great price for such quality ingredients. I definitely think it’s worth it. #Etude House - SoonJung pH6.5 Whip Cleanser[products]#[FiveStars]

5 Step Cleansing Routine for Oily Skin
My bedtime routine for oily, acne-prone skin. 🌙✨ Step 1. Remove eye makeup with a gentle, oil-free eye makeup remover like @Neutrogena - Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover Pro tip: Gently press cotton pad over eye for a few seconds to dissolve eye makeup. Always pat and never rub as rubbing can cause premature wrinkles and irritation. Step 2. Use a fragrance free micellar water for sensitive skin like cult-favorite BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water Remove foundation using gentle circular motions with a cotton pad. Step 3. Use a pH balanced foam cleanser like this K-Beauty fave ETUDE - SoonJung pH6.5 Whip Cleanser I love this cleanser as it's gentle yet effective at removing makeup and oil. Step 4. Spritz a thermal water to reduce redness, hydrate and balance the skin after tap water. My favorite is Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray Step 5. Spot treat as necessary with a sulfur containing product like MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

BUT doesn’t cause me to have breakouts!! its a thicc cream but doesn’t leave me feeling oily!! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream Deluxe Sample again... not fungal acne safe but STILL didn’t cause me to have any breakouts!! the protini feels similar in terms of thickness and the over all feeling on the skin but it feels more “ wearable “ first aid beauty ————————— FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Oil-Control Moisturizer i was super excited to tey this out because the ingredients are fungal acne safe and the claims were ideal for my skin type but sadly i was disappointed 😞 it didn’t control my oil but rather left mw with this shine on my forehead! and it didn’t moisture my dry cheeks. epic fail FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream this is a very basic fungal acne safe moisturizer i recommend to literally every one. i do like it and all but i find my skin still breaking out while i use this product. i would give it a 3 1/2 stars but i cant.

update skincare routine for fungal acne!
yay updated skincare routine! these past few months i had been getting these crazy breakouts on my forehead, but after a switching some products, my skin has been thriving! cleanser although i love the CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser, i found that i would irritate my skin a bit and i decided to switch over to my favorite fa safe gentle cleanser ETUDE - SoonJung pH6.5 Whip Cleanser serums dont get me wrong, i absolutely LOVE the NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2%this was my second bottle of it but once i ran out i decided to finish up the PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serumso it wouldn’t be lying around in my skincare stash. but i still much prefer the naturium serum over peach and lily. essence i wanted to incorporate an exfoliating step in mu routine sence i had drop the SA cleanser. so i thought the ISNtree - Clear Skin 8% AHA Essencewould be a perfect fit in my routine. i use this serum every other day. treatment of course i have my holy grail Curology - Curology formulawith azelaic acid, clindamycin, and zinc pyrithione, this is the one product i will never get rid of moisturizer i think the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Creamis an all around good moisturizer. its fungal acne safe however it wasn’t moisturizing enough nor did it prevent breakouts. i was previously using the NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Creambefore but had temporarily stopped using it. although its not fungal acne safe, this moisturizer hasn’t caused any breakouts and is just so luxurious. and cheaper 😳 masks ive had this DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Masksince last christmas, and since december is comming soon, i want to use this mask up as quickly as possible because baby this wasn’t cheap. i use this on the weekends in place of my exfoliating essence. oil / occlusive in my last routine i was using Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectanton my cheeks for the evening but switched to The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalaneoils because i felt that it absorbed nicely and didn’t leave my poor pillow so mf greasy sunscreen i love love love love the FACE HALO - MISSHA All-Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel SPF50+ PA++++but i wanted to try something new and something more accessible to me so i tried the Neutrogena - Sensitive Skin Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50and aaahh its an ok sunscreen but not as good as the missha one micellar water i would always buy the GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover( blue) and i love it its great but i wanted to switch it up and use the pink one. its ok but i think the blue one works better. comment which products you love for fungal acne!! like and share! xo melanie 💗

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
