A vital part in caring for your skin is exfoliation. I am a firm believer in exfoliation because it helps rid the skin of unwanted dead skin cells. Exfoliation also helps to accelerate cell turnover. We shed skin, it's a natural bodily function and process but as we age, this process begins to slow down. Dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin can cause a myriad of skin related issues such as acne, dullness and dehydration. Due to my sensitive skin, I must be very careful in how I exfoliate my skin because some products that exfoliate can cause irritation and increase skin's sensitivity.
Dr. G is a very popular brand in Korea and although I had heard great things about the brand especially when it comes to sensitive skin and acne prone skin, I had never tried any of their products. Founded by respected Korean dermatologist Dr. Gun Y. Ahn who suffered facial burns as a child, the brand uses scientific training, state-of-the-art technology and high quality ingredients to create products for sensitive and troubled skin. The G stands for Gowoonsesang which means"Beautiful World" and Dr. G is the world's second largest medical skin care group in Korean with over 15 clinics.
I decided to try one of the most loved and celebrated exfoliators in Korean (and in Asia for that matter), the Dr. G Brightening Peeling Gel in Mild. I got this product from BBCosmetic, a online retailer that ships worldwide.
For the past few months, I have been testing the Once Upon a Neck Cream from the brand Purpletale and wanted to share my review. I received this product courtesy of the lovely Young-Ji Park, the founder and creator of Purpletale. For those of you new to the brand, Purpletale is a popular Korean beauty brand that creates simple and easy to use products that are rich with ingredients to make you look and feel beautiful. I have reviewed their Ode to Hydration Cream here if you'd like to read that review too. When I was first approached by the company I immediately fell in love with the simplistic packaging and the beautiful, purple glass containers. I also love the Purpletale philosophy on skincare which is all about using products that contain results driven ingredients.
After debating back and forth for weeks now, I have decided to return to Youtube. I began my Youtube channel in 2010 with a haul video and spent the next 2-3 years making videos. I left Youtube because of some life changing events and turned here to my blog to share my reviews. I recently hosted a meet up in Los Angeles with some lovely ladies that I have met through Instablogging on Instagram and that event made me reconsider my presence on social media. So after some soul searching, I decided to return to Youtube!
The video above is about the meet up event that I hosted while in LA the first weekend in November. I had such an incredible experience meeting all the wonderful people I have become close with and we got so many wonderful goodie bags! Speaking of....I had one left over bag that Naruko US graciously gave me for my meet up so I have decided to host a giveaway! I know that many of you were not able to attend the meet up but since I have an extra bag, what better way to make my Youtube return then with a giveaway.
