Beauty Empties [01] | Winter 2018

I have got a full bin so it is that time again, trash diving! Otherwise known as finally throwing away some of the empty junk I have been accumulating on top of my dresser. While I have been a skincare addict for years, I have only begun to accumulate my garbage recently because empties are some of my favorite blog posts to read! Most of this will likely be skincare, along with some body & hair products I have used recently. I am including house scents because candles are just another hopeless addiction of mine.

Review: Innisfree Jeju Bija Anti-Trouble Cleansing Gel

I have just come around to testing this cult classic cleanser. While cleansing is not the most exciting step of a skincare routine, this cleanser always seemed particularly lackluster for me. However, only trial can prove if this bija is bae or bust. Brand Innisfree is a South Korean company that launched in 2000. Their products are focused on natural ingredients & also one of the only Korean cosmetic companies that is ECOCERT certified, an organic & free trade certification. The company is also involved in local socially conscious efforts that can be done by anyone, such as promoting recycling cosmetic containers & selling handkerchiefs as an alternative to disposable tissues. I do prefer to see more global efforts & corporate transparency from such a big brand, but Innisfree’s parent company is AmorePacific & I have rambled many times about all their great efforts to make the world a better place. Routine Placement The is a water-based cleanser that could be used in AM & PM skincare routine. It would be used as the second …

The 3rd Annual Skincare Dundies: Stud & Dud Cosmetics of 2017

This year has been different for me in a variety of different ways, including skincare. I was not nearly as experimental with new products, I found myself returning to cosmetics that were familiar & loved. I minimized my routine, not even bothering with it some of the time. I took a different approach to the 2017 Skincare Dundies, it will not be as extensive or feature the latest cosmetics as in years past. The focus will shift to my absolute tried & true favorite cosmetics of each category, accompanied by the most loathed product I have ever slathered on my face. Let’s try something new together, shall we? Oil Cleansers Loved: Tosowoong Apricot Seed Cleansing Oil This cleanser was included in one of my very first blog posts nearly three years ago now, that’s hard for me to even believe. I praised it highly in a post where I compared multiple oil cleansers, however this year was the first time I had repurchased it in quite some time & I am questioning why I had …

The Skincare Sample Week Challenge II

I apologize for the hiatus! If you follow me on the social media then you might have noticed I am officially a French resident, my first “celebration” of this move was to get sick! I noticed while I was packing for the move from Austria that my skincare sample stash was starting to overflow so it seemed like a perfect time to do another round of Skincare Sample Routine Week! My initial post in April goes into more depth about my attitude towards free samples, personal methodology for de-cluttering & some conclusion statistics on my “sample findings”. The initial post is linked above if you would like to read more, otherwise TL:DR version is I throw away most free skincare samples & I only keep samples I genuinely want to try. The Challenge Before we jump into the samples, I will just preface with a few variables because cosmetics & reviews are such a personal thing! I have a dry & dehydrated skin, my MAC shade in NC20. I do have scent sensitivities that can trigger migraines, but …

Review: Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing 5.5 Cleanser

I stray farther from Innisfree products than I should. It is a great brand that makes lovely cosmetics, but Innisfree tends to be heavy-handed with the artificial fragrance & I have given away many of their well-formulated cosmetics due to the scent. As soon as I heard about this product though, I knew I had to tango with Innisfree once again. Innisfree is a South Korean company that launched in 2000. Their products focus on natural ingredients & they are one of the only Korean cosmetic companies that is ECOCERT certified, an organic & free trade certification. The company promotes local socially conscious efforts that can be done by everyone, such as promoting recycling cosmetic containers & selling handkerchiefs as an alternative to disposable tissues. I do prefer to see more global efforts & corporate transparency from such a big brand, but Innisfree’s parent company is AmorePacific & I have rambled many times about their great efforts to make the world a better place. PURPOSE This is described as a soft foaming cleanser that rebalances your …
