Beauty Wall

28-year old living in the Pacific Northwest with Dry/Combination skin = super hot summers and super cold winters! Who else out there might be my skin twin? If there’s more than one then can we be skin triplets? #findmyskintwin

When your package gets delivered a day early! 😍😍😍 And they even included sulwhasoo and laneige samples as requested!

Submitted an order two days ago and already filling my cart again~

Hey W2 Beauty community! Is anyone else having difficulty placing orders this evening? Every time I am about to pay and check the box for agreeing to the terms and conditions it tells me PayPal isn\’t available. I\’ve already contacted W2 for technical support but was curious if this was happening to anyone else. What\’s a girl gotta do to get her K-Beauty fix?

Have you ever had a skincare product that you didn’t think you’d like, but then you start using it, and it suddenly becomes the most amazing thing ever? That’s how I feel about my M A N Y O * F A C T O R Y * G A L A C T O M I S T. This lovely mist has no fragrance (yay!) and is a perfect mist to use in between skincare steps. Step out of the shower? Mist. Just washed your face? Mist. Shelf life is limited at only 6 months but I’ve gone through this mist a lot quicker than I anticipated. This mist comes in a spray bottle form, not an aerosol, so the mist is much more direct however I don’t mind that since it has more moisturizing power. Do any of you use mists in between skincare…[Read more]

There are a few brands that I would like to see W2 Beauty carry in the future (pretty, pretty please!)

– J.One
– Huxley
– Pyunkang Yul
– Heimish (I finally saw the All Clean Balm in the new products section – yay!)
– Tosowoong

My August empties! See my comments below for a more thorough explanation and thoughts about each product!

S U N B U R N * S A V I O R S ? I was fortunate enough to witness the total solar eclipse in Salem, Oregon here in the US on Monday. I was super diligent and layered on my sunscreen, cushion with SPF 50, and stayed in the shade. Somehow I still wound up getting sunburn, or maybe not quite a sunburn but that stage juuuuuusssst before a sunburn. I have been putting lots of moisturizer on over it and letting some facial oils soak in. Aside from the obvious use of aloe, is there anything else you\’d recommend using for sunburn care? Thank you! <3 J

Living vicariously through everyone who went to the W2 Beauty booth at K-CON T^T

Can’t forget the hair care! 💁🏻

Has anyone else seen the new Ink Airy Velvet colors!? Oh my word they all look amazing! And that dry rose brown is something magical! Perfect for fall~ <3 J

F A C I A L * O I L * Q U E S T I O N: For those of you that use facial oils, do you like to layer it on after a night cream, or mix it in with a cream? Does it make any big difference which one method you use? Does mixing it together ruin the efficacy of either the cream or the oil? I\’ve been layering it on after for that extra bit of moisture. Let me know your thoughts!

Tonight it’s all about brightening! PM Routine for 8.13.17

C L E A N S I N G * W A T E R recommendations? I currently use the Neogen Dermalogy Calendula Cleansing Water and while it is very gentle I want something that is less floral and more fresh scented (even though I ironically have a flower as my header logo!) What is everyone else out there using? What would you recommend? I use cleansing water to primarily swipe it on during the weekends when I am lazy and not planning on going anywhere. <3 J

PM Routine 8.10.17

Any recommendations for brow tinting products? I prefer the ones where you can tint them overnight such as the Etude House Tint My Brows or Berrisom Oops My Brow since they\’re both tattoo packs. I may look like a crazy person when I put them on, but my brows look on point for the next five days. When I need to fill them in I use a brow product from The Face Shop (forgetting the name atm) that has a brow pencil on one end and a powder on the other! <3 J

Has anyone ever had a bad reaction to the H E I M I S H – A L L * C L E A N * B A L M after prolonged use? I’ve always used this product but for some reason when I returned from Hawaii my skin started to feel super itchy. I haven’t added/altered any other products in my routine. The only reason why I suspect it may be the balm is because a few years back when I used Banila Co, I also broke out from prolonged use. Also my other thought is that my skin was exposed to the sun more often in Hawaii and therefore it is more sensitive. My skin doesn’t feel itchy or red during my AM routine when I use a cleansing oil, just at night. You can see my routine below! Any thoughts?…[Read more]

I live in the Pacific Northwest, it’s pretty cold here for 9/12 months, and I can get by with using more moisturizing products for my dry skin. We are experiencing a massive heat wave and a lot of forest fires however, so I feel like my moisturizing products are not helping and my skin is going CRAZY. What products do you all use when it’s the warmer months? Current routine:

AM:
The Face Shop Real Blend Calming Facial Oil in Lavender
Nature Republic Green Derma Mild Foam Cleanser
Son & Park Beauty Water
Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence
The Face Shop Dr. Belmeur Spot Calming…[Read more]

1️⃣ @goodal_official Waterest Cleansing Tissues were perfect for traveling this summer! I liked that the scent wasn’t overpowering, it didn’t sting my eyes, and it removed a good amount of makeup before I even had to use my oil cleanser! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
2️⃣ @klairs.global Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil was used after the Goodall tissues and it is incredibly light and gentle for my sensitive skin. Since it’s warmer right now I’ve switched back over to using a balm oil cleanser but for colder months I may repurchase. I prefer my oil cleansers to feel more moisturizing though as this oil cleanser was on the thin side.
