A Giant Korean Skincare Haul

Cosrx Snail Mucin 96 Essence 01

I’M ADDICTED TO SNAILS??

Sounds like a clickbaity beauty guru Youtube videos that you end up clicking on because it sounds gross yet weirdly intriguing at the same time.

Countless bloggers touted snail products as being holy grails in their skincare routine.

Today, I’ll be sharing part 1 of my giant K-Beauty haul – the skincare items!

Many of them being…snail skincare!

I saw an almost instant boost in the appearance of my skin after just a few days of using these products.

Apparently snail mucin is a magical skincare ingredient that has the ability to repair everything from dry patches, to acne breakouts, to hyperpigmentation.

Hell yea I’m all for putting snail slime on my face if that means I have flawless and hydrated skin!

So when I made my giant k-beauty haul, I had to pick up some snail mucin infused skincare! Today, I’ll be reviewing 5 different snail products.

But how many snail products does a girl even need?

Probably not that many, but my mom jumped in on my haul as well so I’ve been testing some of her products as well (hehehehe)

Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush

Amika Straightening Brush Review 10

Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush Review

Hello everyone!

Last week was Sephora’s semi-annual VIB sale. And I picked up the Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush! I had been eyeing it for a while and decided to get it during the sale.

I hate doing my hair. On 6/7 days, my hair is usually up in a ponytail or bun because I can’t be arsed to do anything with it.

I have really thick hair, so it takes forever to blowdry and straighten. I always wash my hair in the evenings, let it airdry overnight, and straighten it the next evening because I’ll take every moment of sleep I can get in the morning.

I had been eyeing the Amika Straightening Brush for a little while now. After watching numerous reviews on YouTube and researching on different blogs, I decided to pick it up. Not only was it 15% off (which is like nothing… damn you 13% tax!) but it came in a value set. Keep reading for my thoughts!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer 2018 Collection Review & Swatches

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer 2018

BRING THE HEAT

Summer launches always make me feel really happy because it’s a fun reminder that warm days are soon approaching. I’m ready to trade in our 6-month long winter for that warm weather, baby!

Today I’ve got some new bits from Estee Lauder to share with y’all. I love Estee Lauder’s summer releases! Especially their Bronze Goddess Line.

All I want to be is a Bronze Goddess! I used to be really tan as a kid but as I discovered ~the internet~ I spent all my days indoors and reverted back to my natural pale skin tone (lol)

I long to achieve that bronzey, glowy skin that is plastered all over my Instagram feed. One day I’ll get it. I’m going to try making an effort to tan a bit this summer, or try out some fake tanning products…

Anyway, what do we have here?

The Estee Lauder Summer 2018 Collection!

I’ll be introducing 4 new items to the collection today:

  • Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelee
  • Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Cooling Body Gelee
  • Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess The Summer Look Palette
  • Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Paint On Liquid Lipstick

Let’s take a closer look…
