Eclado Double Wired Lifting Mask - Peption 5 Review

Eclado Double Wired Lifting Peption 5 Mask

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Today, we are talking about sheet masks. Specifically, these unique 3 in 1 face, jawline, and neck masks from Eclado. In all our years of masking, we have never tried anything like this before. While there are 2 in 1 masks with face and jawline or jawline and neck on the market, these are the first 3 in 1 sheet masks we have ever seen. Needles to say, we were both pretty excited to try these Eclado Double Wired Lifting Masks. Let's get to know them!

J.One Jelly Cushion By Re:cipe Review

J.One Jelly Cushion By Re:cipe

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

What is your ideal cushion? My ideal cushion has to have decent coverage, moisturizing properties, a lightweight formula, sun protection, and has a natural looking finish. Of course, the shade has to be right too and these days that can be so hard for some reason. Still, that does not stop me from testing out cushions I want to try. I have been wanting to try this J.One Jelly Cushion since last year and I finally purchased it a little while ago. I initially held off on the purchase because at full price it can be quite expensive. Shelling out a ton of money for something I may or may not like was not ideal, so I decided to wait. Luckily, there was a sale on this cushion, so I purchased it right away. I wanted to test it and see if it could be my ideal cushion. Read on to find out!

Sample Saturday: Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50+ WetForce

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50+ WetForce

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Have you found your perfect sunscreen yet? I have a few favorites but I'm expanding my horizons this year and trying out more in hopes of finding my HG sunscreen. I've already tried this Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50+ WetForce for Face in the past but this time, I thought I'd share my thoughts on it with you guys. My favorite sunscreen from Shiseido is actually their Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector. I've used the Urban Environment sunscreen for many years and it's one of the few sunscreens I've repurchased multiple times as well. As for how I feel about this WetForce sunscreen? You'll have to read on to find out!

Belif The True Cream - Aqua Bomb Review


Belif The True Cream - Aqua Bomb

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Two years ago Belif, among other K-Beauty brands, stormed the Western beauty world and introduced themselves with a big bang. They were talked about in magazines, social media, and the lucky few got their spot in the ever so popular Sephora shops. Needless to say, there were (and still are) a lot of buzz around Asian beauty products and the amazing benefits they offer. While many Asian Beauty veterans were already familiar with the brands that flooded the Western markets, there were still some that were news to us as well. For me, Belif was one of those brands.

This interesting brand with a seemingly misspelled name caught my attention in the most unusual way. I was curious, so I looked them up. While its name might have drew me in, its history and its line of skincare products is what kept me wanting to know more. With a little luck, my mom and I won a giveaway hosted by Belif, which landed us 5 of their best sellers. One of them was this Belif The True Cream - Aqua Bomb. I've been using this moisturizer for the past 2 months and I'm ready to share my thoughts on it with you guys. Read on to learn more about it!

Peripera Oil Capture Peach Sun Review

Peripera Oil Capture Peach Sun

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Let's talk about sunscreens today. Do you wear sunscreen every day? Growing up, one of my mother's best skincare advise was to wear sunscreen every day. I followed that advise until I hit my teenage years. Those are the years to be rebellious after all. The idea of wearing sunscreen every day even when there's no sun to be seen, seemed like such a hassle. The teenage me then didn't understand at all. Sure, my mom explained about the potential sun damages, aging effects, etc. but I was young and aging seemed like such a thing of the future. I did still wear sunscreen, but it was more of an on/off thing versus everyday. That was until I saw a picture of a truck driver who had sever sun damage to only the left side of his face (since that's the side that faced the window). It was a shocker and the picture, and my mother's nagging (but I love her for it) got me back on track with every day sunscreen usage.

Using sunscreen is no longer an issue for me, but finding the perfect ones can be hard. I've tried many sunscreens and I honestly haven't come across a HG yet. I have a few favorites but the common issue I usually have with sunscreens are that some work well on its own but doesn't layer well with makeup or skincare. Others causes that sunscreen white cast so many of us are only too familiar with and some are just straight up...well to put it nicely, dreadful. So, my sunscreen hunt hasn't exactly been easy but what can you do, life isn't easy either. You just got to keep going and keep trying! Anyways, today I want to share my review of Peripera's Oil Capture Peach Sun. This is a sunscreen I started testing 2 months ago. Read on to see if this is a dud or a favorite.

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.

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!
