Note: This jar (provided for review by the brand) is the older packaging with the former name, Leejiham Vita Propolis Cream. Glow Recipe still uses this name and you’ll probably find more reviews under the old name. Continue reading “Bee Mine: Leegeehaam Grow Vita Propolis Cream Review”
Leegeehaam Grow Vita Propolis Ampoule is an old favorite with a new name. I first used it 3+ years ago, practically an eternity for a skincare addict. It’s about time I shared my love for it. (This particular bottle was sent by the brand, but I’ve purchased multiple bottles on my own.)
Talk about curve appeal! The novelty of this kimono-festooned hourglass was impossible to pass up when I spotted it at New Kam Man (one of my and Renee’s must-shop spots for Japanese beauty in NY).
Himegra Premium Body Milk seemed worth a try ($14 for 280 ml on Webichi and about the same at New Kam Man). I’m on a (flailing) no-buy, but replenishing body lotion doesn’t count, does it? Continue reading “Milk Maid: Himegra Premium Body Milk Review”
I immediately tore this from Renee’s hands when she arrived from NY with COSRX One Step Moisture Up Pads, compliments of COSRX at a K-beauty meetup. Each tub has 70 pads and can be found online for about $19.
A pad that swipes on moisture instead of an astringent or acid? Count me in. This is the type of novel idea (like my sunscreen balls–which still need YOUR vote to get made and sold) that I jump all over.
My interest was only heightened by seeing swoonworthy Mr. COSRX on the lid. Naturally, this post shows off all my man stickers as much as it does COSRX. I have…just a few of those. Continue reading “Dueling Manjos: COSRX One Step Moisture Up Pad Review”
One whiff is like a trip to Sweet (Ol)factory.
At press time, I was unable to confirm the nature of the relationship between Miss Flower & Mr. Honey. Rumors are they’re dating but not exclusive as Miss Flower is known to swing both ways and Mr. Honey was recently spotted cavorting with a bear.
Angela (to Renee and Indya): LADIES!!! I have a very speshul present for you.
Indya: Does it involve cutting out lolcat talk?
Angela: Me haz no idea what zis hooman is talking about. Ahem–*whips out package*–feast your eyes on this.
Renee (eyes widening): Ooh, aaah. It’s so big! It’s so firm! It’s so…pineappley?! OMG it’s the heartthrob Pikotaro. Sooooo much better than your girly male Korean pop star masks!
Angela: I’m going to pretend you didn’t just wound the deepest part of my soul. Anyhoo, I got each of us a Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen (PPAP) sheet mask. You get a PPAP smear, you get a PPAP smear, EVERYONE gets a PPAP smear!
Renee: PPAP is the best thing that will ever happen to you. Watch this while wearing the above sheet mask and you will be just as beautiful as Pikotaro: Continue reading “PPAP Smear Leads to Uncomfortable Burning: Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen Sheet Mask Review”
The lure of immortal youth was too good to pass up. Yeah, yeah, it’s marketing–but irresistible nonetheless.
I’ve been regularly using two items from Missha’s Time Revolution Immortal Youth line: the Blue Essence and the Cream ($55 and $65, respectively–both courtesy of Missha). While they haven’t turned me into Benjamin Button, they have protected my skin–which is already prone to flaking due to tretinoin and natural dryness–from the parched winter air.
Fine, Neogen Code9 Long-Lasting Eyeliner Coating Serum is pseudo skincare because it’s “serum,” but seriously, just use it as a clear topcoat to seal eyeliner into place. Something my hooded eyes could really benefit from.
We felt like true beauty bloggers when Catherine from PR for Missha reached out to seek our opinion on a few of Missha products. That’s what I AM full of anyway, opinions! The more unqualified I am, the stronger my opinion, kekeke.
Missha is one of my (Renee’s) gateway products into KBeauty. When the BB Cream craze was barely hinted at stateside, I searched high and low in every Asian mall, supermarket, and beauty shop for the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream. This was back when the only shades available were #21, 23, and if you looked really hard, 27. Now KBeauty is so mainstream, you can even get Missha at Target! It was one of the best BB creams I used in terms of natural coverage and high SPF, except that I was highly allergic to whatever sunscreen chemical was in it, and ended up looking like the elephant man.
Anyway Catherine kindly selected a couple of items for us to honestly review. I had her pick for me, indicating that I am concerned about aging and pigmentation.
With no further ado, Roxy and I purrresent to you our views:
A lot of bad shit happened in 2016. Like, furrreal. But a lot of good shit happened too. As we bid adieu to 2016 and its poopoo platter, please remember more strongly the things that brought us happiness. Such as:
- This catman who gives a cat a bath WHILE rapping. Is he a wizard? A rapper? A w-rapper?
- New technology in genetics means we are SO CLOSE to the fountain of youth, or Gattaca or Sharktopus, please thank you.
- Angela and Renee got to gallivant in England and France and hoarded stuphs!
- Also, any year spent in the company of healthy loved ones, including Miss Roxy, can be considered a good year.
Here we are on a Manhattan rooftop wishing you a Happy 2017! May this year be the right time for your endeavors to be met with success and all your wishes to finally arrive!
Other stuphs that brought Angela and I much happiness in 2016:
