NYC | Visiting the Peach & Lily Store + What I Bought

Hello everyone!

Today's post is going to differ a bit from the norm. Instead of the usual reviews, I'm going to be talking about my visit to the Peach & Lily store while I was in New York! 

For those of you who don't know, Peach & Lily is a Korean beauty online store founded by Alicia Yoon. If you'd like to find out more about her story, click here. P&L is probably most well known for their rigorous curating process, where products are sold in their shop only if they're top notch quality (safe, effective, and everything else you'd want out of a beauty product). While I can't say for sure that everything is foolproof, their selection of skincare always looks amazing on their website, and I've been tempted many times to buy something from there. I just never did because their products are a bit pricey. lol

While I'm perfectly fine with purchasing products online without seeing and feeling them in real life, I definitely prefer testing out products beforehand if possible. Which was why I was SO excited when I heard that P&L was going to open their first physical shop in Flushing, NY a few months ago. I knew that I was going to be in the city during winter break, so I immediately put their store down as one of my MUST go places. 

Review | Tosowoong Enzyme Powder Wash + Detail Clean Pore Brush

Tosowoong Cleansing Set

As skincare has evolved over the years we've seen many types of cleansers come out. Regular foams, sticks, bars, gels, oils, balms, and so on. And then there's the powder cleanser.

Today's review is on the Tosowoong Enzyme Powder Wash and Detail Clean Pore Brush. You're probably thinking "What? A powder?!" and I don't blame you, that's exactly what I thought when I first heard about powder cleansers. I didn't really believe that a powder could possibly cleanse your face. Thinking about it now though I suddenly realized that laundry detergents also come in a powder form, and they cleanse your clothes, so why not a powder wash for your skin?

Anyways, let's get started with the review! I'll go over the cleanser first, and then the brush, and then talk about how those two work together.

Review | Miss Tutii Jan 2016 TutiiBag


It's interesting how far Korean beauty has gotten. I remember back when I first started blogging, there were about 6-7 Korean beauty shops. Two years later, there are now at least 10 shops, and a number of Asian beauty monthly subscription services you can pick from. Back then there were none. Kind of amazing how much has changed in just a little over two years isn't it? 

Review | Benton Honest TT Mist


Hello everyone, happy New Year!

I hope 2016 started off on a good day for you. I went on a cross-country road trip with my dad during winter break, and now that I've been back a week and school has started (sadly) it's time to get back to work.
What I would give for break to last for a whole month... haha.

Today's review is on a relatively new product from Benton, the Honest TT Mist. This product is part of Benton's Honest skincare line, which so far consists of only a cleansing foam and this mist. According to Benton, products in their Honest line use honest, natural ingredients. The name is a bit strange (I mean, they can't really lie about the ingredients...) but if it works then hey who cares, right? So without further ado, let's get started with the review!
