Japan Skincare and Makeup Shopping Guide

We’ve planned our trip to Japan! Although I am slightly disappointed that we will be going as the cherry blossom season is winding down, I’m still very excited because this time, we’re visiting the island of Kyushu – a different scene than the previous trips we’ve taken (Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto). From what I understand, Kyushu is home to major cities such as Fukuoka (home of the famous Hakata style tonkotsu ramen), Nagasaki, Kumamoto, and the “onsen” hot springs resort town of Beppu.

Tatcha The Essence Review

I love me a good essence. Ever since the K-Beauty trend popularized this product, lots have been written about its efficacy, need, and place in your standard skincare routine.

Review: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

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.

Updated: Spring 2018 Skincare Routine

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.

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. I’ve been meaning to try another Korean cleansing balm, and decided after reading great reviews to try Heimish All Clean balm.

Fall Skincare Routine – Updated

As we transition from summer into fall, so should our skincare routine. Just like how you might tweak your wardrobe to keeep up with the seasons, you should also re-evaluate your skincare routine at the end of each season to make sure that each product is still meeting your needs. I’ve been trying out different products to curate my fall routine. You’ll see some familar products that I kept from summer into fall, and a couple of new additions.

Ciao, LA! Kiko Cosmetics Brand Review

There’s a new beauty player in town and it hails from Italia! Kiko Cosmetics has opened its doors in different locations all over LA, as well as New York and New Jersey. I visited the Torrance store in the Del Amo shopping center, which first opened in October of 2015, where the lovely Lindsey and Brittany were gracious enough to let me play around with the gorgeous Kiko products all morning.
