Winter Skincare Routine

Have you checked out our recent facial oil post? If you have, then you know we are all about updating our skincare routine for the winter season. Your skin may be a bit flakier or it may not have the same vibrancy that it usually does due to the cold weather outdoors and heat being blasted when indoors. All you have to do is tweak your skincare routine a bit and you are going to be good to go! Exfoliate Exfoliating through all seasons is a must, but during the colder weather, you want something gentle since skin is already a bit delicate.

Facial Oils For The Drier Weather

Have you noticed lately that your face has been feeling a bit drier? Maybe your foundation isn’t applying as smoothly or you have been noticing some flaky skin around your mouth or nose? With the onset of the colder weather, your skin routine may need a tune-up. Skin tends to not produce as many oils in the fall and winter seasons. In addition, walking into spaces where the heat is blasting can also make your face drier. Facial oils are amazing when it comes to hydrating skin. Keep in mind that you don’t have to use facial oils as a single step and use it an entire layer. Start off by adding a couple of drops into your moisturizer, mix with your fingers, and then pat...

Heat Map: Fenty Beauty + Videos

Fenty beauty products have taken the world by storm. Created by Rihanna, whose given name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the line has been lauded for the expansive range of foundations that cover so many different skin colors.

Going Nuts For Kopari Beauty

Kopari beauty products intrigued us because we noticed that the price tag on the coconut melt was higher than health food store coconut oils that we are used to trying. And then we tried it and became hardcore converts. Like seriously hardcore. If you love coconut oil or have been trying to understand the hype around coconut oil, this is the brand that you should be looking into. Check out the products that we can’t stop talking about.

Soothe Your Skin With Sheet Masks

  Weekly face masks have always been high up in our skincare routine to help with clear and smooth skin. Lately, we’ve loved incorporating face sheet masks into our routine. They may make us look a bit funny, but there is no denying that draping that soothing sheet across our faces makes us not only feel more relaxed (think at-home spa treatment), but our skin ends up feeling so soft when we remove the material. Keep in mind that there is no need to stock up on just one type of sheet mask. After all, your skin can change throughout the month depending on the food you have been eating, alcohol you have been consuming, the weather, room conditions, hormones, and even your sleep habits. Purchase a...

Cruelty-Free Korean Beauty Products

We are 100% on the Korean beauty bandwagon. BUT, we do have to admit that it has been quite hard finding brands that are considered to be cruelty free. Since we have come across Korean brands that have opted against animal testing, we thought that it would be useful to compile a list together for you right here. All of these brands can be purchased in the United States or can be shipped here when placing an online order.
