Korean Skincare Product Review

I wanted to review a few samples that came in my Memebox #2 that I have been really loving lately.

To begin, I should start by updating you on my current skin type as my skin changes with the various seasons.  A few years back I went through a rough patch with my was horrible actually!! My skin was breaking out, red, and very irritated.  It was so embarrassing not only because my face was full of acne, but I am a licensed Esthetician and it was like I didn't know how to take care of my own skin!

However, like most things in life, that time has passed and my skin has recovered minus a few scars.  My skin is mainly combination to oily, slightly sensitive and reactive, but right now with the winter season, I have a few dry areas, mainly around my eyes and mouth.

The first sample is this rich cream from Holika Holika
This cream claims to moisturize and protect, providing 72 hours of hydration.  This contains ceramides which are natural lipids to help skin retain moisture. Ceramides help to lock in moisture and keep the skin plump and supple. Some of the main ingredients are Shea Butter, Green Tea, and Aloe Vera.

As you can see, this cream is extremely dense! It smells amazing too :) This is marketed for sensitive skin because of it's mild ingredients, is also cruelty free, and doesn't contains parabens! Although I cannot use this everyday because it is way too rich, I do like using this as a hydrating night cream every other night to really boost my moisture level.  It feels very soothing and calming to the skin without being sticky or oily feeling, if that makes sense!! This would be an excellent option for someone who has dehydrated or dry skin. I am not sure if I would purchase a full size but I do think it a very nice, good quality cream!



Korea Depart Haul!!

Back in January, I made an order on Korea Depart's website and did a little damage!! Today's post is showing you the products I purchased.  If you would like to hear more in-depth, detailed reviews on any of these products just leave a comment below :)


Innisfree is a brand that I have been more and more interested in because of it's naturally based ingredients.  I picked up a few items (to say the least) to try out and review for you all after I have had a chance to use them!  First is this Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask.  This stuff is heavy duty, a new addition to the Jeju line for Innisfree.  This product claims to detox, exfoliate, and deep cleanse pores while absorbing sebum (oil) and tightens skin.
Ingredient List
Next up, three products from the new Minimum Line from Innsifree.  This particular line is targeted toward those with sensitive skin....

 First, the ampoule essence, with is a light weight serum to treat sensitive and blemish prone skin.
