Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil Review



The votes are in – The Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial oil was the most requested review on my Instagram and Facebook pages (don’t worry, I’m still going to review the Goodal Murumuru seed gel cream).

I got the Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil as part of my Glow Recipe haul a few months ago. I am obsessed with using facial oils at night, and all I had to see was fermented stuff on the ingredient list for me to say a silent YASSSS and place it in my cart. Most really great oils are hella pricey, so at $40.00, I just couldn’t pass it up.

Whamisa Organic Flowers Eye Essence Review

I admit that I haven’t used an eye cream regularly since I used the Innisfree EcoScience one AGES ago. To be honest, I never really bought into the whole eye cream thing. Why can’t I just use my same moisturizer, but apply a little less around the eyes? But then I was browsing Glow Recipe and saw the Whamisa Organic Flowers Eye Essence and thought I’d give it a try. It checked all the boxes I look for in a product: fermented ingredients, pretty packaging, brightening properties, anti-wrinkle (hey…I’m nearing my 30s, gotta keep it together!)

My Current Nighttime Skincare Routine

main-image copy
You’ve asked for it, and here it is – my updated nighttime skincare routine!

I’ve streamlined my routine into using these same steps every single night, without fail. Since I’ve introduced acids into my routine, I no longer experience breakouts, and my hyperpigmentation is nearly gone. Bless. My focus for my skin is to keep it smooth, bright and clear, and make sure it’s absolutely 100% clean. The pollution here + sunscreen + makeup = gross face at the end of the day.

Mizon Snail Repair Hydro Mist Review


I know, I know. You’re probably like WTF SHERYLL WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN WHAT IS GOING ON?

Well, my life has been ridiculously busy lately. Like…I don’t even know how to manage my time busy. It all started when I moved apartments (my new apartment is so awesome and amazing btw!), and then I had a few deadlines get moved up with one of my jobs, and then a sort of lost my mind in all the craziness. But very soon, in about 2 weeks, everything will die down and I won’t be working 6 to 7 hour days, 7 days a week. Trust me, I’m counting down the days. I plan on having a party and then sleeping… a LOT.

Anyway, I thought I’d pop in for a quick review for one of my new favorite products – the Mizon Snail Repair Hydro Mist. I purchased it from the Cosmobeaute Asian Beauty Expo that was in HCMC a couple of months ago. I bought one bottle, and liked it so much that I went back the next day to buy a backup. The love is real.

Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid vs. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant


It’s been a while lovelies, but I’M BAAAAAACK! Shit got cray for a few weeks – I increased my hours at one of my jobs, got a puppy, then my computer crashed, and I just got it back yesterday. Anyway, I upgraded my computer so now it’s super fast and amazing…silver linings!

Today, I want to talk about how much chemical exfoliation has changed my life. I’m going to start with BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids), and then move on to AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) in my next post, then talk about how I incorporate them into my nighttime routine.

Until about 10 or so weeks ago, I’d never used chemical exfoliants. They aren’t typically used in a Korean skincare routine, and most Korean skincare companies don’t make any BHA or AHA products, so it was something that wasn’t even on my radar. One of my besties in HCMC got her hands on Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Exfoliating Liquid and the holy grail Biologique Recherché P50 Lotion for me and GIRL. My skin hasn’t looked so good pretty much…ever. Both products are pretty pricey and difficult to get in Vietnam (well Paula’s Choice is in Vietnam now but still expensive), but thank god that some Korean companies have started making BHA and AHA products, so I decided to do comparison reviews. On today’s agenda is the COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid vs the Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% Exfoliating Liquid.
