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. Brand: Neogen Dermology Neogen Dermalogy Real Flower Cleansing Water, $22 Use this to wipe away all traces of dirt or leftover makeup up. It’s very similar to micellar water. Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling, $27 With almost a full 5-star average rating on Sephora, this product exfoliates away dead skin and...

Oz Naturals Winter Skincare Regimen

Thinking it’s about time for a skincare change up? You’re right. Your skin needs in the winter season are much different from what you might need in the summer, fall, and spring. This is because of so many different factors, from the wind blowing in your face to having to deal with heaters in a home. If you find that your skin is looking a bit drier than usual, getting a little patchy, or noticing that fine lines are forming at a much higher rate than normal, we definitely suggest incorporating different products into your skincare routine. Oz Naturals uses nature to help rejuvenate skin. In their products they use ingredients such as rose hip, spirulina, and sea kelp to create their unique formulas. For this...

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate: Get Smooth Winter Skin

If you have noticed a difference in your skin, you’re not the only one. The winter weather can really dry out your skin. We start to notice it when our lips start to get chapped and all of a sudden we look in the mirror and notice that there is a bit of patchy foundation on our face. When skin dries out, the dead skin can actually begin to clog pores as well. In addition to the patchiness, you might also notice a crop of pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads starting to form. Keep your skin supple, smooth, and soft by simply exfoliating. As always, all of these products are cruelty free.   dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, $55 It’s so gentle that it is to be used daily!

How I Use Oils on My Face

It seems that everyone on the internet has been touting the use of oils on the face, so obviously, at one point I had to try it. Now keep in mind that I have sensitive/combination skin, so my findings may be different from what you experienced or will experience. If you have different skin from me, it would probably be worthwhile for you to try the options that didn’t work for me just in case it’s something magical for you. Oil as Face Moisturizer From coconut oil to argan oil ($13), using straight oil as a moisturizer was not for me. Not only did I still have some dry patches, but I would break out in areas that I never broke out in. My face just doesn’t...
