Sample Saturday: Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Review

Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

This Sample Saturday I want to share my review on the Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream. Although I'm familiar with the Goodal brand, I haven't really tried many of their products. So, when I found these deluxe samples in my stash, I thought I'd give them a try. I've never tried a facial cream quite like this before. It's really more like a melting balmy product as opposed to a cream, so the name throws it off a bit. However, its texture and its process of use is what makes this product unique. Read on to learn more about this product and my thoughts on it.

Yesstyle Beauty Box - Sweet Spring Makeup Kit

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

We are back with another Yesstyle Beauty Box unboxing! Last time, Yesstyle released a Skincare Essentials box and it contained some nice products. This time, they launched their Sweet Spring Makeup Kit which includes a selection of full size makeup products and sample size makeup and skincare goodies.

For those who are unfamiliar with Yesstyle, they are an online beauty, fashion, and lifestyle retailer. We've been shopping with them for nearly 7 years now and if you frequent our blog or Instagram  you've probably seen a few of our hauls from them as well. They are one of our trusted sites to shop at and we've shared our thoughts on their site, membership program, customer services, etc., so check that out if you'd like. They have released a few beauty boxes and it seems like they will release more in the future as well. It'll be exciting to see what other beauty boxes they release in the future, but for now let's get to know the Sweet Spring Makeup Kit.

Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review

Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Last year I discovered two of my favorite gel cleansers and one of them was this Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser. The other is the Nooni Gel Cleaner. These two were game changers in my cleansing routine and I was so happy to find cleansers with really nice formulas that's gentle on my skin, have low pH and are very affordable as well.

The Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser was the first of the two gel cleansers that I tried and fell in love with. This is my second tube and I have a third in my stash since I'm almost done with this one. You can say this one's a keeper. Let's get to know it!

Sample Saturday: Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil - Moisture Review

Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil - Moisture

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

I've been pretty set with my oil cleansers ever since I discovered my holy grail 2 years ago. Recently, I also found a second best, so I haven't really branched out to try more cleansing oils. However, after I find this sample (and a few others) in my stash I figured I'd give it a try. Can't hurt right?

This is the Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil in Moisture. I've tried many Etude House products in the past but never their cleansing oils, so it was a good chance to try it out. Let's get to know it!

DD'ell Extra Vitalizing Serum Review

DD'ell Extra Vitalizing Serum

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Today I want to share my review of this DD'ell Extra Vitalizing Serum with you guys. I have been using this serum since late last year and I just finished it at the end of March. I decided to wait until I finished the serum to write the review because I wanted to see the end result one bottle of this serum can bring before sharing it with you guys.

DD'ell is a professional cosmetic brand in South Korea. Their name, DD'ell, comes from the french word meaning 'for women'. The idea is that their brand wants to create products to fulfill every women's needs and desires. Anyways, on to the review!

Vivito Painting Sweet Lip Balm Review

Vivito Painting Sweet Lip Balm
Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Have you tried a jelly tint balm yet? There are quite a few options on the K-Beauty market and this Vivito Painting Sweet Lip Balm is one of them. Jelly tint balms are usually balm/gloss hybrids. They help to moisturize your lips while adding a hint of color to enhance your natural lip color. I have tried a few jelly tint balms by now and this Vivito lip balm is one of the few that I like. Let's get to know it!

Sample Saturday: Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner Review

Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner
Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Have you tried the Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner yet? I know this product has been out for a long time and I've actually been using it for a while too. However, today I want to chat with you guys about it and share my review on it as well. This product had all the buzz when it was released and it quickly became a love-it or hate-it product. You're either on one side or the other, not many people fell in the middle. This is a practice makes perfect product, which means it's not very beginner friendly. There's a learning curve and you have to put in the time and effort, even then you might still run into issues. Needless to say, not everyone liked it. 

When the liner first came out, I debated a lot on whether I should get it or not. After seeing the initial wave of reviews (good and bad), I decided to wait. When Benefit introduced more color options to the line, Sephora offered a free gift with purchase promo of it, so I got a deluxe sample in Beyond Brown to try. I knew the learning process wasn't going to be easy but I was up for the challenge. After testing it out and using it for a few months, I'm ready to share my thoughts of it. Read on to find out how I feel about this gel liner!

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cushy Blusher Review

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cushy Blusher

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Today, I want to share my review of the Too Cool For School's Dinoplatz Cushy Blusher. I got this blusher last year but I didn't get to try it out until a few months ago. Powder blushes have always been what I used because it's what I have and it works. So I didn't really branch out to try other blushes. However, back when I made that haul I made a spur of the moment purchase on this cushy blusher, so here we are. Since I have it now, I might as well use it. After testing it out, I couldn't believe that I didn't try it sooner. Curious about how I feel about this product? Let's get to know it!

Skinfood Facial Water Vita-C Cream Review

Skinfood Facial Water Vita-C Cream

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Now that the weather's getting warmer, I've began to change up my skincare routine. Slowly taking out products suited for the colder months and adding in products better for the warmer months. One of the many changes will be the moisturizer, as I generally prefer a lighter moisturizer that hydrating but not too rich in the warmer months. Although, I do have a favorite, I wanted to try a few things in my stash and one of them was this Skinfood Facial Water Vita-C Cream.

Sample Saturday: Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream Review

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

If there's one thing I've loved about Too Cool For School (TCFS) over the years it's their packaging designs. Especially the ones for the Dinoplatz line. Which is where this CC cream falls into. The playful designs of dinosaurs 'invading' NYC is a change of pace from the cutesy, chic, simple, or luxurious designs we often see on beauty products. It's creative, yet not over the top. I actually keep all the packaging from this line because they are too good to be thrown out. That's not something I can say for all my other products.

As I've said many times, samples are a great way to test out a product. If you don't like it, it's okay because it's a sample. If you like it, great! Now you know you want to whole thing. For me, this was a sample that didn't quite suite my taste. It just wasn't for me but I wouldn't have known that if I didn't try it. I'll share why it didn't work out later on in the post, but for now let's get to know this CC cream.

Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask Review

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Like mother like daughter they say, and just like my mom some of my favorite skincare ingredients are honey and propolis. They might seem like common ingredients but there's nothing ordinary about them. Both ingredients are known for their antioxidant, antiviral, and antibiotic benefits. Plus, they are soothing and moisturizing ingredients that can bring out the skin's natural glow.

I have a few favorite honey & propolis products and you guys probably already know that my favorite wash-off mask contains both of these ingredients! Today, I want to share with you guys another product that contains propolis and that is this Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask. Let's get to know it!

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil Review

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Do you prefer cleansing oils or cleansing balms/sherbets? I generally prefer cleansing balms/sherbets because they're easy to use and travel with. However, once in a while I'll find a really good cleansing oil that's just too good to pass on. This Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is one such product for me. I use this cleansing oil interchangeably with my HG cleansing sherbet and I love it. I'm almost done with my current bottle and I have a second one waiting for me in my stash. Let's get to know it!

Sample Saturday: Tonymoly BCDation All Master Mini Review & Swatches

 Tonymoly BCDation All Master

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

A few months ago I found a lot of samples of BB creams/CC creams/foundations in my samples stash. I think I was saving them all for a mega swatch post of some sort but I kind of forgot about them. While I'm work on that again, I figured I'd review some of the deluxe samples since they'll last more than a few uses.

I'm always down to try BB creams/CC creams/Cushions/foundations etc. Finding the perfect shade or coverage or formula is never easy, but the idea is the more I try the more I'll know. So, I'm always searching. These days I feel like I'm leaning more toward cushions due to convenience. However, sometimes I'll still reach for that pump bottle of foundation or squeeze tube of BB cream because it's good to have options. Today, I'm reviewing the Tonymoly BCDation All Master. The All Master version is an upgrade of the original BCDation. It has an 'air light' formula and provides longer lasting moisture and color. Let's get to know it!

EcoTools Brushes, Blender Duo, and Cleansing Cloth Review

EcoTools products

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Love it or hate it, the makeup brushes you use to apply makeup are just as important as the makeup you buy. Makeup artists and beauty lovers alike don't buy brushes for no reason. (Okay, some might but that's not the point.) The point is, they buy them because they are tools of the trade. Literally. Many makeup artists will often say that brushes are the most important part of their kits. Having the right tools on hand, both in quality and type, can be the difference between a decent look and a good look that wows.

Now, that's not to say you have to spend hundreds on brushes or have like hundreds of brushes. It just means you want to have a good variety of quality brushes on hand, know how to use them, and use them with the right products. (I'm not going to go into details about that in this review but if you are interested, let me know in the comments below and I can write a separate post on it.)

Innisfree Green Tea Seed Eye Cream Review

Green Tea Seed Eye Cream

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Innisfree's products and I go way back. Between my mom and I, we've tried more than half of their lines. For me, their Green Tea toner and lotion were the first pair from the same line that I loved. They soothed my skin and provided the right amount of moisture and nourishment to it. Plus, they're inexpensive which was great for my student budget back then. I also like a few of their mists and masks. Can't forget about the No Sebum Powder, which has been my go to for many years. So, it's no surprise that when I found myself having trouble finding the perfect eye cream for the cooler months, I turned to Innisfree.

I've tried a few eye creams by now. Some I liked, others not so much. However, despite the few that I've tried, I still haven't found my holy grail eye creams yet. Ideally, I would like to find 2 holy grail eye creams (as if finding 1 isn't hard enough already). One that's slightly richer for the cooler months and one that's lighter for the warmer months. I've been using Innisfree's Green Tea Seed Eye Cream for the past couple of months as it's richer and good for the cooler times. Want to know if it's HG status or not? Read on to find out~

Tonymoly Panda's Dream So Cool Eye Stick Review

Tonymoly Panda's Dream So Cool Eye Stick

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Remember the cute brightening eye base I reviewed last year? Well, here's its twin~ The equally adorable Panda's Dream So Cool Eye Stick from Tonymoly. In case you are wondering, yes, I did totally purchase this due to its adorable packaging. I'm a sucker for cute packaging and I often gets drawn towards them. Although, I've managed to talk myself out of getting some of them from time to time. Sometimes, the want just greatly outweighs the need. That was the case with this adorable eye stick, so here we are. Let's get to know it!
