My Scheming Bird's Nest Collagen Hydrating Mask

I posted last week that my local Asian market was having a weekend sale on all My Scheming Sheet mask. Needless to say I purchased a few :) Today I wanted to review the Bird's Nest Collagen Hydrating Mask....



My Scheming Sheet Mask Haul

A few days ago, my local Asian market announced they were having a 20% off sale on all My Scheming Sheet Masks! I had never tried this particular brand and after posting a "what's your favorite type of My Scheming mask" on Reddit's sub, I decided that I needed to try this brand. Each box was around $12 on sale and the single sheet masks were a little over a dollar a piece. Bonus: some of the boxes included a bonus mask!! WOOHOO :)



Aritaum Fresh Essential Aloe Sheet Mask Review

While up in the Seattle area for work, I stopped inside a local Hmart to do a little Korean beauty hauling :-) I popped into the Hmart in Lynwood (just north of Seattle) which has a few little shops inside that carry Korean cosmetics! One shop carries brands owned by LG (Su:m37, Sooryehan) and they also have an Amore Pacific store that carry brands such as Sulwhasoo, Laneige and Aritaum. One a side note, they also have this little shop that has some super cute stationary and Korean music cd's! 

First, the prices on products are a little high (higher than buying the same items in Korea) so I mainly went in to test some products, color match, swatch colors etc....However, the sheet masks were a decent price so I grabbed a few Aritaum sheet masks to try out and review! I did post a picture of all the sheet masks I got on Instagram here!



L'Oreal Cushion Foundation

I wanted to let you all know that L'Oreal has recently released a new cushion foundation called Lucent Magique Cushion Lumiere to the Japanese cosmetic market. I do have a friend who lives in Japan and she confirms this product is currently being sold in Japan! I have another friend in Hong Kong and this product is also being sold there too! The link included in this post is from the L'Oreal Japan website. As indicated on the website, it comes in only two colors and has an SPF 29 PA+++. The cushion in Hong Kong is also sold in two colors but they have different numbers and color names here!



Memebox Haul

Last week was my birthday and I decided I was going to order some stuff and treat myself!! I ordered a few goodies from Wish Trend here and these products from Memebox

I must admit that recently I have been struggling with my skin. There are many factors that are contributing to this recent skin flair up. I am currently working on posting about this experience soon. Unfortunately, my skin has become very angry and rebellious and I have had to back off all of my actives :( For the past several weeks, I have only been using the bare bones when it comes to skincare.  

I have been experimenting with various cleansers from Cerave and Hada Labo and after several months reading all the rave reviews on Su:m37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick,  I caved :-) Memebox was also offering this cleanser at a great discount so it was the perfect time to purchase!
