Beauty Review: My Sunscreen Essentials

Summer is just around the corner and for most people, it is that time of the year to scout the shelves for effective sunscreens.

But while it is important to be extra mindful in keeping our face and body safe from the sun this summer, every skincare manual stresses the equally important task of using sunscreen all year round.

Studies suggest that daily use of sunscreen not only lessens the chance of acquiring sunburn but reduces other potentially harmful sun damage as well.

Beauty Review: Top 5 K-Beauty Must-Haves for Oily Skin

Nothing can be completely frustrating than having a face so oily and greasy, it makes you look like a walking frying pan. And what can be more annoying than seeing your makeup melt just after a few minutes of putting it on? Everyone with oily skin knows the struggle.

Happy First of February, everyone! To jump start this month, I’m going to share my mini collection of all things related to lips: lipsticks, lip glosses, lip balms—you name it!

Beauty Review: Y.E.T Don’t Worry Mask Sheet

Hello everyone! Today’s beauty review is all about these cute and adorable sheet masks from a young Korean beauty brand named Y.E.T (Yes! Enjoy Time). This brand carries a decent range of cosmetics and skincare products at budget-friendly prices.

Aside from their cutesy packaging, the thing that caught me most about these sheet masks was the price. At Althea Korea, these sheet masks retail for only 24 pesos!

I knew I had to get some of these because for a sheet mask newbie such as myself, I am still not prepared to spend a fortune over these highly-raved Korean skincare staple known as sheet masks without first exploring my cheaper options. Thank heavens there are plenty of affordable sheet masks around.

Beauty Review: Onsaemeein Yogurt Peeling Gel

Exfoliation is a very important part of the skincare routine. We cannot deny the awful truth that dirt and dead skin cells remain on the surface of our skin even after cleansing, so it is of great importance that we include exfoliation in our skincare regimen.

Exfoliation also aids and improves the skin’s capacity to absorb all the other skincare products (i.e. toner, serum, essence) that we slather on our skin. It is recommended to exfoliate once or twice a week.

Today’s beauty review is all about Onsaemeein Yogurt Peeling Gel. I purchased this peeling gel during Althea Korea’s Year-End Giveaway Sale last December. You can check my haul here.

I’ve been using this product since the New Year began (about three weeks now), and finally here are my thoughts on this cute and affordable peeling gel.
