September Sheet Masks: From Meh to "Men-Boong"

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Though I'd like to sheet mask every day, my laziness dictates that I get around to it every other day or every couple of days. So any given month, I get to try about 10-15 masks. This month, instead of doing a favorites post, I thought I'd rank the sheet masks I got to try over the past couple of weeks.

There are 12 in all. There are some meh's and many "men-boong's" ("so good it caused a mental breakdown"). Let's begin the countdown!

INGREDIENTS Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Lactobacillus/Leuconostoc/Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Lactobacillus/Leuconostoc/Coconut Fruit Extract, Sugar Maple Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Matricaria Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Betaine, Hydroxyethylacrilate/Sodium Acrolyldimethylaurate Copolymer, Ledum Palustre Extract, Ecklonia Cava Extract, Artemisia Capillaris Flower Extraact, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Saururus Chinensis Extract, Xanthan Gum Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance.

Disclosure: Bought it, and a side note - I've started to refer to the EWG for health and safety ratings, and CosDNA for acne trigger warnings. This mask has butylene glycol (mild acne trigger) and fragrance (mild irritant).

This mask is the LEADERS INSOLUTION COCONUT GEL MASK WITH TOMATO. It's made out of coconut jelly instead of your typical biocellulose hydrogel. It's also extremely slippery and hard to keep in place. I found that the effects were a bit lackluster (slightly moisturized, no brightening or increase in elasticity) for the hassle to keep it on your face. I couldn't pinpoint the smell but it wasn't terrible. What was annoying about the mask was that it felt slimy and not in a good way, so I couldn't get myself to keep it on past the 30 minute mark. But that's okay because it was about to dry out anyway. The feature ingredients in this mask are the fermented tomato extract which is rich in lycopene, a potent antioxidant. The coconut is also fermented and contains vitamins B and C. Tip to know: the mask comes between two mask backings, I completely goofed and wore the backing for the first 5 minutes.

Sept 2015 Week 4 Kbeauty Skincare Launches

That and the new Rose of Sharon/Hibiscus line from our flowery friends at Mamonde. The Rose of Sharon/Hibiscus is the national flower of South Korea, so I'm excited to see if it has any real benefits to the skin.

GET IT BEAUTY 2015 Twenty Again Episode Show Notes 9/23/2015 + Mascara Blind Test

GET IT BEAUTY 2015 Twenty Again Episode English Subtitles/Transcription 9/23/2015, 겟잇뷰티  영어자막본,

Edit - This is a repost. I am a bit nervous as this was the post that was flagged to be taken down by a Korean drama called "Twenty Again", but this post has nothing to do with that drama, and everything to do with the television show "Get It Beauty". Please get in contact with me if you maintain it violates DMCA regulation. Thank you.

This week's episode was super sweet and sentimental. It opened with a little photo montage of pictures sent in by the women in the studio audience of themselves when they were 20 (19 everywhere else). Most of the women, now in their 30's came to the studio to learn tips and tricks on how to be "Twenty Again". So this week's episode featured tutorials on how to get a youthful look so everyone could look and feel twenty again.

Fall-ing Moisture Levels? Check Out the Miguhara Hyalucollagen Moisturizer Aqua-Ctrl

Miguhara Hyalucollagen Moisturizer Aqua-Ctrl Review, Cold weather moisturizers, Fall moisturizers, Autumn moisturizers, Winter moisturizers, Fall and Winter creams and lotions. Heavy Korean cream. Korean skincare.
UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ it's a rave! Haven't had one since my Mediheal Dress Code Sheet Masks review in August!

This is a tale of triumph. You know that moment when you throw caution to the wind and buy something with zero reviews and come away with something you really love? Yes? No? In any case, it's not something that happens often.

Today I'm reviewing a cream that I bought from a Korean e-tailer using the international shipping services of It's from a brand called Miguhara, which to me sounds Japanese, but after moseying around their site, seems to be fully Korean. I first found out about them through a feature in an In Style Korea issue, and promptly forgot about them (after all, a magazine editorial inclusion doesn't necessarily equal great product). A little while later, I came upon some of their products at G-Market and they looked nice, the ingredients lists were clean and included many of the ones I've been seeking out in my skincare as well.

I bought the Miguhara Hyalucollagen Moisturizer Aqua-Ctrl moisturizer. There are two versions: one for dry skin, and one for normal/combo/oily skin. I preferred the ingredients list for the latter. And I now believe it to be the LBD (little black dress) of creams, perfect for everyone, and ideal for Fall.

Autumnal s'Teal Nail Polish

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Pony Nail 15 Love Vacance Summer Love Review and Swatch, Memebox Meme Nail Polish 09 Base Coat Review, Meme Nail 08 Matte Top Coat Review, Teal Nail Polish,

Okay it's kind of gross funny, but I recently managed to get one of my fingernails infected and had a little freak out and threw away all of my nail polishes just in case anything was living in there. (In case you're wondering, everything healed up in 2 weeks.) But later on I found out that things can't really live in nail products - they're really inhospitable environments when it comes to bacteria. *cries*

I'm not a nail polish junkie, but I do like to keep a few around, so I treated myself to a few cheapies at Memebox.

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU you could enjoy a spa treatment that comes from South Korea, the current reigning skincare capital of the world, right from the comfort of your own home? ^^ Anyone getting excited reading those words? I know I was when I first heard about this treatment.

So what the hail am I talking about? I'm referring to modeling masks, sometimes referred to as rubber masks. And it's a type of facial that's lavished upon Seoulites, and Busan-ites... and Daegu-ites... who frequent the spa or esthetician.

I found out about them through their killer Instagram feed. Long story short, I'm really into them! They opened up their shop only a few months ago from the looks of it, and they've got an awesome roster of brands like...

These are the shades I've decided to rock into Fall and Winter!

I've been SO excited for Fall to roll around. I got tired of sweating off my makeup oh - back in July. But FINALLY, the leaves have started tumbling down in my yard, which means I'll be able to rock my long sleeves and mom jeans comfortably for the next few months. The above shades are the ones I'll most likely pair with those comfy mom jeans.

4 Things About the NoTS Aqua Barrier Lotus Essence Mist | Review

Monday, September 14, 2015

NoTS Aqua Barrier Lotus Essence Mist Review, Q-depot Review, How to choose a face mist, Face mists in winter?

NoTS stands for Noble Through Skin, and it is a mid-end Korean brand that does "natural, functional cosmetics." So what does that mean? If you recall from my Asian Cosmetics Standards + FAQs post, functional cosmetics are any products that contain brightening, tanning, UV filtering, or anti-aging ingredients. NoTS strives to produce functional cosmetics that well, function, and are based on ingredients coming from nature. They're also cruelty-free.  :)

*whistles* haaaave mercy!

Just pollen' you... are you tired of honey, royal jelly, propolis product reviews yet?


There's only one more post left in this series, and I'll break up the current swarm of reviews with some other fun stuff - like maaaybe an Avecko/Dowaja haul?! - before getting the last review up over the weekend.

But today, let's focus on this beauteous thing we have before us and find out whether it's purely all about the pretty facade, or if there's any substance/merit to the stuff inside.

The Buzz Off: Shara Shara Honey Bomb All In One Ampoule Review

Monday, September 7, 2015

Shara Shara Honey Bomb All In One Ampoule Review, 250 ml!!! (It's huge!), 샤라샤라 꿀 폭탄 원킬 앰플 250ml

Shara Shara doodoodoodoodoodoo, oh Honey Honey, doodoodoodoodoodoo. You are my candy giiirl, and you got me wanting youuu...

You can't always get what you want, but in this case, I wanted the Shara Shara Honey Bomb All In One Ampoule, and I got it! I was able to snag it on sale in the Shara Shara box on Memebox before it sold out.

The Shara Shara Honey Bomb AIO Ampoule was first introduced to the U.S. market on, a U.S.-based 'natural' Korean skincare retailer. With its quirky and cute packaging, and promise to deliver healthy, glowing skin while condensing 3 skincare steps into one, this. thing. TOOK. OFF! The Shara Shara Honey AIO was the talk of the town in beauty forums, and was even knocked off by its competitor, the budget brand, Scinic. I'm also fairly certain that it would take me the time it takes for my mascara to smudge (less than no time) to find other knockoffs in the market.

1st Week September 2015 Kbeauty News, Launches, & Sales

Friday, September 4, 2015


Thinning hair linked to sugar consumption 
“A rapid glucose spike in the blood causes an overreaction by several hormones, most notably insulin and steroids. The result is a roller coaster of sugar peaks and valleys; that is abnormal high and low levels of glucose, insulin, steroids, adrenaline, testosterone and numerous other hormones,” says Panos Vasiloudes, Dermatologist and Medical Director of Harklinikken, a European-based hair loss clinic with a long list of American clients. “The blood sugar spikes are detrimental to the physiologic hair cycle in two major ways. First is the direct damage that rapid blood sugar changes are causing to the hair. I call this ‘direct nutritional shock.’ Second and most important, is the indirect damage caused by the fluctua-tion of hormones like insulin, cortisone, adrenaline, testosterone and DHT. I call this ‘indirect endocrine shock.’ Both of these shocks can result in significant generalized hair thinning.”

Not convinced? Sugar consumption also linked to aging skin
The spikes in insulin and blood sugar levels can have a snowball effect. The rise in blood sugar levels can lead to glycation - the process of glucose attaching to protein, which in turn can cause the formation of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) which can cause hardened, stiffened collagen within aged skin.

I've Got the Magic Pole - Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara 2X 02 Long & Curl Review

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

I've Got the Magic Pole - Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara 2X 02 Long & Curl Review

This isn't a rave, there will be no glow sticks in this review. Only magic poles. :p

Being a contact lens wearer, I was on the hunt for a contact 'lens-safe' mascara because apparently that's a thing. 'Lens-safe' mascaras are non-waterproof and can't have fibers. The Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara 2X in 02 Long and Curl fit the bill so I picked it up to see if it could work for my stick-straight Asian lashes.

The Holika Holika had a tough act to follow with my last mascara having been the stellar Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister Mascara, which I'll refer to as the MM Long Name Mascara from this point on.

Does the Memebox CosRX Box make Dollars & Sense? + Unboxing + Reviews + Giveaway

CosRX Box Top

If you're a CosRX devotee, you've probably already had your eye on the CosRX box ($46, valued at $65.50) at

CosRX Silk Fingerballs Review + How To Use Them

CosRX Silk Fingerballs review, CosRX Silk Finger Balls review, CosRX Silk Fingerballs 12 pc review, CosRX Silk Finger Balls 12 pc review, 12 pieces,

Samesie's with this review. I'm trying to make my reviews shorter and snappier. Here's another try at a shorter and snappier review.

CosRX Silk Fingerballs (12 pieces)

These are gentle exfoliating thumbnails made of 100% natural silk. CosRX have to my delight decided to call them FINGERBALLS.

CosRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review and Skin Analyzer Results

CosRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review,
I've been noticing that my reviews have been getting longer and longer, with me hitting peak skin'splaining in my "Make Me a Skincare Routine" post.

We're all busy people. Well, you're all busy people. I'm going to can it a bit on my verbal diarrhea and let the pics do most of the talking for this review.
