Well, Stowaway Cosmetics has just
released a set of four face items that are each only...
Does anyone else break out HARD after getting sick? Like I just got over the flu AND started my period at the same time. My face is not happy. At all.
Ugh, I definitely get unhappy breakouts around my nose after a cold from blowing it so much. And I never tracked it after the flu, but I wouldn’t be surprised. I get sick anytime I get slightly stressed, even if it’s from something positive like traveling or, say, trying to get BTS tickets. 😂
But did you actually get the tickets?
I did! Woo-hoo! Guess the breakouts were worth it. 😂
Are you going @xomarthamarie?
Nah, I saw them last September so I decided to let somebody else have a turn this time. Getting tickets is an absolute blood bath!! BUT I am going to see Blackpink in May! 8D
That’s gonna be so fun!
And to your first question: I just broke out hard right BEFORE getting sick this week. I felt like I had all this inflammation in my body because I was breaking out and my ears were feeling hot and red. And then sure enough, I got sick the next morning. For me, it’s definitely inflammation that makes me break out.
I put in my first three day shipping order a few days ago, and I have been getting non. stop. emails.
Two emails every hour. Is this normal? I’m excited to get my order in, but this is a little ridiculous…
Oh no! I heard it’s a glitch they’re working to fix! Sooo sorry about that!
Good to know! Thank you!
For a second I was like ‘dang, they take customer service seriously’ LOL.
I decided to start a sort of skincare diary on Instagram! If anyone would like to follow my skin-ventures, my username is marthamasks!
Welcome to the ‘gram Martha! Just followed you (I’m @annanymity).
Just had to leave a less-than-stellar review on the Purito Buffet Serum. T___T
Why oh why does there have to be lavender oil in it???
Ack! Did you have a reaction to it? I’m not sensitive to botanical oils, but I do frown on ingredient lists that have too many of them, especially citrus oils.
Yeah. Unfortunately I started to break out in bumps along my forehead, nose, and chin. Looking at the ingredients list, lavender oil was the only thing I haven’t had in my other products, so by the process of elimination that was what broke me out. Honestly my skin seems fine with citrus oils in small amounts, but as usual YMMV.
Last night I started up my BHA again with the stridex pads, but I was so tired and couldn’t bring myself to sheet mask before bed. I still needed extra moisture, so I decided to try one thing that I thought was only for dry skinned people: I layered creams.
Now the cosrx aloe cream is only a cream by name, as it’s a lightweight gel. But on top of that, I layered the etude house moistful collagen cream, and this morning I woke up to a pleasant surprise! My skin was hydrated and plump, with no signs of clogging! My routine was as follows:
Point Makeup Removal – Simple Micellar Cleansing Water
Oil Cleanse – Kose Deep Cleansing Oil
Foam Cleanse – CeraVe Foaming Cleanser
BHA -…[Read more]
Earlier this year, my mother went to the dermatologist to check a mole on her upper back, and it turned out to be basal cell carcinoma. They were able to biopsy it and I would apply a cream to the wound at night to close it up and it worked out just fine.
She just went in for a follow-up to check on how it was healing. That spot was fine. But the derm found another basal cell carcinoma in her eyebrow. It was biopsied, but it’s not superficial so it’s going to require surgery.
We’re waiting on the results of the biopsy to see how bad it is…honestly I didn’t even think of putting sunscreen in my eyebrows before. I always apply every morning and reapply with…[Read more]
Hope your mom will be ok! And I agree, eyebrows definitely weren’t on my list of places to apply sunscreen :/ I feel like my brows will end up rather sticky and possibly with a white cast (depending on the sunscreen I use).
Sunscreen on hair is the worst, but it makes sense! I hate getting it in my hairline, too, but I guess I’ll be more rigorous about applying on all exposed skin! I hope your mom gets well soon!
My father has suffered with skin cancer since I can remember. Usually his biopsies come back benign but on occasion they test positive. My father and I have Nordic, fair-skin and I grew up covering my body with clothing, wearing hats and using sunscreen. Sunbathing and tanning were popular in the 100+ degree, California summers of my childhood – and I felt leftout and self-conscious. Thus far I’ve been lucky and haven’t had cancerous spots – though I have a mole that’s causing me concern right now. And, thankfully, my father has caught his “spots” – as he refers to them – in time for them to be removed before any bigger health issues happen. As an adult I’ve grown to embrace…[Read more]
Thank you! And yes I’m a hat fiend! My poor scalp needs protection too! At least they’re a stylish way to protect against the sun 😉
I have quite a collection of hats. Bunus: bad hair days are easier to manage! 😊🌹
I ordered this toner on amazon and it arrived August 17th. I’ve been using it like crazy and I’m already almost out.
I think I have maaaaaaaybe a week’s worth of use left? 5 days? That’s still not even a month total. I love this stuff so much. It’s so calming and refreshing. I use it as a toner, as a mist, to refresh my makeup. It’s always in my work tote when I’m not using it at home.
This is my gateway drug to centella and it makes me even more excited about my purito buffet serum that’s coming in the mail! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to order another bottle so I may happily mist away~
I hope you like the Purito Buffet Serum! I started it recently and really like it.
Did I need more sheet masks? No. Did the Wonjin Effect Water Bomb masks go on sale? Yes.
Just made my second order on here. The first one came in on Tuesday.
I\’m going to bed to reflect upon what I\’ve done….
TLDR; I\’ve been wanting to try the Wonjin Effect masks since June and they were a DailyTap so my 2nd order was earlier than expected. My wallet is crying but my skin is so excited.
definitely keep us posted on your experience! the wonjin effect masks have really been gaining popularity for good reason 🙂
Will do! I kept seeing them on my instastories so I’m ready to take the plunge!
I’m so annoyed. How does Laneige know my weakness is BEARS?!? I’m just wondering is this their famous water sleeping pack with a whitening powder to mix in individual portions?
I don’t think so! This sounds like the whitening line, rather than the water hydrating line^^
Lol I know what you mean, any time I see anything with cutesy penguins on it I’m like are you kidding me, this is a personal attack.
Kbeauty brands are always KILLING it with the packaging. Either it’s too cute not to get, or too elegant or pretty not to have on your vanity 😀
Okie dokie, time to start introducing my regular products! I know everybody and their mama uses the cosrx snail essence, but it’s been my ride or die for 3 years so I had to say SOMETHING. It’s a wonderful soother and hydrator, and my sensitive and acne-prone skin doesn’t break out from it since the ingredients list is so short. 96% pure snail, baby! The added niacinamide is also appreciated. I always have a bottle of this in my skincare basket, and I will continue using it for the foreseeable future!
Sometime the really simple formulations really are so effective. I’ve rotated this in and out of my routine for a while (I can’t help but try new stuff lol) but I will say that if I had to really lock things into my routine to use forever, this would totally make it into the basket with no hesitation.
Sometimes I do rotate out samples while I travel ’cause I’m super lazy, but it’s pretty much the only constant in my routine. Toners and creams are my most experimented categories of skincare besides sheet masks.
I guess I should start this beauty wall thing!
Last night my skin was feeling a bit irritated so I slapped this baby on. I looooove the Illi camellia masks! The essence is super creamy and rich, just what I need to soothe and pamper my skin. It also smells amazing??? These masks are huge so they fit my face, but if you are smoll, you may need to do some cut and fold action. I only have one left after using this, so I need to stock up again before the colder months hit!
After taking the mask off and patting in the essence, I put on a non-offensive cream and went to bed. I’m happy to report that my skin feels much better this morning! Bless.
I’ve heard such good things about Illi masks and other products as well. I’ve never tried their masks! Have you tried anything else by illi?
I highly recommend them! These are the first illi product I’ve tried though I’ve heard great things about their cleansing oil and body lotion a la Fiddy.
The lotus and mugwort masks are on my amazon wishlist so I can try them when my mask stash gets low.
