Snail mucin is a hallmark ingredient in K-beauty skincare products. Long lauded for its ability to moisturize and heal skin, you can find it in a variety of products such as essences, serums, creams, and masks. I’m a solid fan of this particular ingredient, and I’ve found that it works with my skin wonderfully well.
Bar soaps are versatile, gratifying, and surprisingly enjoyable to use. Switching to bar soap is the greener choice that will save plastic and lessen your impact on the environment.
On the outside, this is an unassuming moisturizer. It isn’t pricy (it’s quite affordable, actually) and it doesn’t have super flashy packaging. One might be inclined to think that it won’t wow you much, but that is where you would be wrong!
Paula’s Choice Barrier Repair Moisturizer from their Resist line is an amazing product for beginning retinol users, or for people with sensitive skin that have to avoid stronger formulations. I’ve been using this moisturizer for six months now, and I’m incredibly happy with how my skin has changed over that time.
The time has finally come to talk OIL! I haven’t discussed any facial oils on here yet because honestly…I’ve avoided them. In the past, all I’d experienced when using oils was an uncomfortable layer of grease at night that led to extra oily skin the next day. Things just didn’t seem to be working the way they should. Enter The Ordinary’s 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane, i.e., the oil of my dreams. I will be repurchasing this product in perpetuity, and here’s why:
I know this may sound a little silly, but I was truly shocked by how much my skin had changed after just one treatment. There were so many things that distracted me during the healing process that I didn’t even notice what a difference it had made for my skin!
My journey to find my perfect sunscreen has been a long and arduous one. Much to my regret, I have not always had the perfection that is Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence in my life.
When VIIcode contacted me about trying these eye masks, I was intrigued and excited to find out more. I had never seen any other eye masks that could be worn the entire night while I slept! I was envisioning waking up with eye masks halfway down my cheeks! Oftentimes eye masks have a tendency to make their way down my face compelled merely by gravity. Would these masks stay in place on me, a dedicated side sleeper? And on top of that, would they be able to deliver effective results?
I bought the Beta-Glucan Power Moisture Serum just as the fall weather was beginning to arrive, and I intended to begin including it in my routine to help fight the onslaught of winter dryness. I’d often seen other iUNIK users say that this was their favorite serum out of the whole range, so I’d had my eye on this particular one for a while. Finally, the time had come to slap it on my own face! So how was it, do you ask? Allow me to share!
It took me quite a while to try Glossier’s Balm Dot Com lip balms. The main factor that kept me away from them for so long was that I was constantly seeing naysayers online declaring that you were better off just sticking with plain Vaseline. I wanted to test them for myself because I saw lots of other happy users singing their praises of the product, and they seemed entirely convinced of its effectiveness.
