Happy new year! This is my first post of 2019, after becoming basically inactive for the past couple months (which I’m not proud of). Work, school and all other things got in the way, but that didn’t mean that I couldn’t have kept up with my reviews. That being said, I’m slowly getting back into it. This year, I’m trying to post more on a regular basis and created a schedule for myself to make sure that I get this done. Anyhow, in this post I will be reviewing Nature Republic’s Super Aqua Combination Watery Cream. I got this in a Bomibox from a while back, and opened it early last year! I’ve been trying to get myself to finish up products before opening up new ones, so I have been using this for the past 1.5 months.
About a month ago, Wishtrend sent out a new sunscreen from dear Klairs – the **Soft Airy UV Essence. This is the 2nd sunscreen from dear Klairs and their first one was.. well a hit and miss for most people. Their first sunscreen was the Mid-day Blue Sun Lotion which was meant to help with redness and brighten your skin tone (sadly the white cast was really strong with this one). The new sunscreen is supposed to be light, work for sensitive skin, not leave a white cast and is vegan!
Another CosRX product! This brand receives so much hype, but I haven’t tried many of their products. Feels as if they market themselves as simple skincare – and are known for making products that target specific skin concerns such as acne, black heads, white heads etc. However, this product – their Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion (with Birch Sap), caught my eye. Main reason being that it’s oil-free and these kinds of products usually work quite well with my skin.
It’s been quite some time since my last review – there’s no particular reason for it but rather I ran out of products (mainly skincare) that I haven’t reviewed yet but was already using. Probably could’ve reviewed this product a lot earlier, but makeup reviews sometimes take a lot more time when it comes to taking photos and such (and I’ll admit, I’ve been a bit
When Nordstrom had their K-Beauty pop-up event, I decided to go.. more than a few times. Frankly, I went often hoping that they’d have a sale and eventually they did (on the last 2-3 days of the event). It was great because almost everything went on sale for 40% off and I managed to get this recovery mask for under $30! They were retailing it for around $48-$50 CAD.. that mark-up is pretty insane. Anyways, I’ve always wanted to try out random indie brands and the concept behind the mask seemed good for what I was looking for so I splurged, just a little.
Back with another dear Klairs review! This time it’s their Rich Moist Soothing Serum which is often marketed along with the **Supple Preparation Facial Toner. Both products are part of their “Rich Moist” line, which also includes their Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser and Rich Moist Soothing Cream. I purchased this on Amazon.ca instead of Wishtrend because at the time the prices on Amazon were slightly cheaper when it came to converting USD to CAD. It’s been almost half a year since I’ve started using this product.. and here are my thoughts on it :)
Thank You Farmer is one of those low-key KBeauty brands that you don’t hear much about unless you’re on Instagram. It blew up quite a bit last year (if I remember correctly?) and many IGers and beauty bloggers reviewed and really loved their miracle age line, which I’ve never tried before since I don’t think its benefits will show on my skin yet. Anyways, back when I made my first hellodaint.com purchase, this Thank You Farmer cleanser was included with the box and I finally got around to using it.
