Spring break and summer vacations are just around the corner – I hope you have a great vacation or trip planned. I’ll be visiting Japan soon so I wanted to share in this post what I will be taking with me this time.
I’ve been excited to share my thoughts about this sleeping mask! I’ve heard so many good things about the Glow Recipe brand, and watermelon is one of my favorite fruits…. so I figured I would at least like how this mask smells. I remember growing up in Taiwan, some women would use watermelon rinds to moisturize their face. I thought it was the strangest thing at the time, but now looking back at it those women might have been up to something! Watermelons are, after all, mostly water.
Happy Spring! The weather is getting warmer and warmer – pretty soon it will be a thousand degrees here in Las Vegas. The dry climate in Las Vegas wreaked havoc on my skin when we first moved here. I’ve been trying and experimenting with different products and finally came across a routine that’s been working well for me. If you live a dry, arid desert environment, you might want to give some of these products a try. I try to focus on moisturization, with emphasis on brightening.
I’ve been trying a lot of Korean skincare products lately, part of gathering more content for this blog as well as finding inspiration for my newest hobby and addition to this blog – building Beauty Lately’s YouTube channel! As a marketer by day, I see how fast e-commerce and digital marketing is shaping how consumers shop and interact with brands. Long gone are the days of brands speaking to consumers via ads.
How many of us have had the experience of products (shampoo, cleansers, lotions) leaking in our bags on us when we travel? (Raises hand) How many of us have had the experience of having to throw away expensive product at security gates because it violated the 3.0 oz rule? (Raises hand again)
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. I’ve been meaning to try another Korean cleansing balm, and decided after reading great reviews to try Heimish All Clean balm.
I can’t believe it’s June! You know what that means! Summer is around the corner! I’m so excited – summer is my favorite time of the year, and pretty soon we’re going to be frolicking around in the sun! During this time of year, when we’re spending more time outdoors, it’s actually even more important to protect your skin with sunscreen. The daily sunscreen with SPF 30 you’ve been applying once in the morning won’t be enough if you’re going to be spending a day at the beach or the pool.
I first came across Missha’s Time Evolution First Treatment Essence when searching for an alternative to the (very expensive) SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. I really like to use the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, but a 160ml/5.4oz size runs $179 at Sephora, which is difficult for me to justify every other month. I looked up alternatives on blogs, forums, reviews, and came across Missha.
When I first met Ka, he had this hideous backpack that I secretly hated but couldn’t tell him because we were still too early on in our relationship. I didn’t want to be “that girl” too early on and criticize his choice in accessories… yet.
