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.
A few months ago, Maria from nailpolishcanada.com contacted me to ask if I wanted to try out the Vitry Nail Repair Care Sensitive. And I thought – why not? My nails are pretty weak and fragile – might mainly be due to some vitamin deficiency. Anyways, when I read how this product is known for healing damaged, split, brittle nails in a few weeks, I was intrigued and wanted to give it a try.
Trying to get a skincare routine started can be tough if you don’t know where to start. It takes a lot of trial and error to find out what works best for your skin and what doesn’t. In high school, the first brand that I had ever tried for skincare was Biotherm! After awhile, Biotherm didn’t work as well for me so I wanted to switch to a new brand and that’s when I tried Kiehl’s. The sales associate recommended their entire “Ultra Facial” line (not the oil-free one). The only gem out of the cleanser, toner and cream that I was recommended to try was the Ultra Facial Cleanser.
It feels like all I’ve been doing lately is reviewing a bunch of toners. This is what I get for lacking self-control and opening multiple toners at once. But I’ve learnt my lesson and I’m slowly.. slowly getting through each one and finishing them. So the toner I have in the spotlight for this post is the “**1st place in ‘2016 GLOWPICK CONSUMER BEAUTY AWARD’ !” – arguably Wishtrend’s most popular and beloved product.
Approximately a month ago, I applied for Swanicoco’s 2nd round of SWANS aka SWANS2! I was lucky enough to get picked and my contact, May, curated a package based on the skin concerns that I sent in my application. They were extremely generous with the amount of products that they sent over – if you’re interested in seeing what came in my package check out my post on Instagram! Anyways, the first product that I will be reviewing from their package is The Bio Therapy 1st Essence. This essence can be categorized under “First Treatment Essences” because it mainly contains fermented ingredients.
