Review: Innisfree's Green Tea Pure skincare line

Affiliate Links Bought It

Time for more reviews of items from the haul vaults!

Today I'll be writing about some items from Innisfree's Green Tea skincare line. I purchased a sample kit from TesterKorea last month, so I've had a few weeks to size up several of their products and see how well they work in conjunction with each other. Curious? Keep reading!

Review: Lioele Dollish Veil Vita BB Cream (Gorgeous Purple)

Ah, Lioele. If you spend any amount of time reading up on Korean makeup brands, chances are you've heard of Lioele and their BB creams. I've tried a few of their popular products (namely Triple the Solution and Beyond the Solution BB creams), and while they are excellent products in terms of feel and coverage, they are way too dark for my ultra-pale self. Thankfully, there's Lioele's Dollish Veil Vita BB - it's got the same standard of quality as Lioele's other BB creams, with a lighter, more CC cream-like coverage.

3 Things That Don't Suck: Drugstore Anti-Acne Products

Affiliate Links Bought It

So today I'll be writing about something a little different: Rather than reviewing one product or some random stuff I've hauled, I'd like to talk about a few different things I use regularly that share something in common: They're anti-acne products that I think actually work! And these aren't obscure or expensive products either. All three of the things I'll be writing about today are relatively easy to find in American drugstore/mass-merchandisers and cost less than $10. If you're outside the US, iHerb carries all of these products and has reasonable international shipping rates.

Just a quick note to start: It can be a bit tricky to recommend anti-acne stuff, because everybody's skin is different and may not react the same way as someone else's to a product. Therefore, I strongly recommend doing a test patch whenever you try a new product to avoid a full-blown allergic reaction. Furthermore, I am not a doctor or dermatologist, so please know that these are just opinions based on my own experiences!

Now, onto the goodies...

Innisfree "It's Real" Sheet Mask Reviews: Gold Kiwi, Green Tea, Jeju Bija & Rose!

Affiliate Links Bought It

What an odd week this has been. My mother came for a visit - this is the first time that's happened since I moved to New York three years ago. Sounds exciting, right? Well, it would have been, except I spent the entire first two days of her trip...  wait for it... vomiting and sweating out a fever!

I won't get into the details, but I was SO SICK. I'm thinking it was food poisoning, maybe? In any case, our visit didn't go exactly as planned, but at least we got a chance to catch up and talk. We also had time for her to rummage through my massive drawer of skincare supplies, so I introduced her to one of my new favorite beauty products, Innisfree sheet masks! And that's what today's post is about. I bought a whole bunch of them from RoseRoseShop (aka rubyruby76 on eBay) last month and have had a chance to test out all of the varieties I purchased, so I figured I'd share my thoughts.
