Review: Heimish All Clean Balm

I’ve been a fanatic about cleansing ever since high school, using my first toner to remove residual dirt and gunk off my face. Since then I learned about the importance of double-cleansing, and how washing your face with cleanser alone is not sufficient.

A Complete Guide to Sunscreens

I can’t believe it’s June! You know what that means! Summer is around the corner!

Just to tick off a few ways Cooper has it good: we’ve started to feed him homemade organic meals (ground chicken/turkey/beef with vegetables), he sleeps throughout the day next to Ka (who works from home), and we basically take him with us everywhere.

Review: White Formula UV Protective Gel with Hyaluronic Acid SPF 50

Something that I love to do during trips to Asia is to shop for local brands that  I can’t get easily here in the States. With the surge in popularity of Korean skincare, there have been numerous online outlets starting to cater to demand for Korean skincare and beauty products. A niche that I find more difficult to find is Taiwanese skincare, which I find to be quite good in terms of both performance and value!
