Skin care week: COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad


Starting today until the end of the week, Joiz and I will blog about current skin care. Please keep in mind we both have oily skin, so some might not work for you if you have dry skin. We hope you’ll find this series informative. Please leave a comment if there’s something you still wish to know about our skin care products or routine. 🙂

I started having acne (again) since late last year. I believed it was because of sunscreen and foundation gone bad. But switching products and double-cleansing didn’t change anything. I then figured I had hormonal acne as it persistently appeared on my jawline and cheeks. I knew I had to update or return to my more-then-3-step skin care routine.

Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning and Honey Lip Balms

The Secrets to Buying Makeup Online


There’s nothing quite as convenient as online shopping, but just as The Balance has pointed it, it has its ups and downs. Thankfully, beauty items are easier to shop for than apparel. Online makeup shopping can come with its own problems; however, they’re never quite as stressful as finding the perfectly fitted dress or jeans from these digital retailers.
