Skincare Goals

It has been exactly one year since all my skin care trouble began. I thought it would be nice to not only updated you all on my progress but chat about some of my current skin care goals.

To begin, I want to recap this past year. About this time last year, I started to develop cystic acne. It was really out of the blue and I am not sure exactly what trigger the onset but I had never had that bad of acne in my life, even as a teenager. I spent months trying to clear my skin, sought out help from my doctor, tried a handful of medications but nothing I was trying made a whole lot of difference. For those of your who don't read my blog, you can read more about this process here!



Pink Seoul Review + Giveaway (CLOSED)

Today I want to post about a giveaway I recently won for a Pink Seoul Plus box on Instagram. Pink Seoul is a new subscription service that launches this month. They have a few box options including a mask box as well as two beauty boxes. This subscription service is a bit different than others out there because you customize your box by your skin type. The Pink Seoul Plus box comes with at least 4 full size products and an accessory item. The above picture shows what came in the Pink Seoul plus box I won which included 5 full size products, four sheet masks, a hair band, and samples. This box retails for $49.95 and is available bi-monthly.

The idea behind this subscription box is not for you to try samples and then buy full size products. The owner, who is super sweet btw believes that you cannot get a true sense of how the product will work for your skin by just using a sample once or twice.

Atrue Sweet Song Black Tea One-step Cleansing Water Review

Today's post is a review on a cleansing water from the Korean brand Atrue. I actually won this product in a giveaway by 0.8 liter on Instagram here.  Before this giveaway, I had heard a lot about Atrue and have been wanting to try their products. I was fortunate enough to win this giveaway and I have been using this as a makeup remover and morning cleanser since receiving it.
