Candle is never a bad idea for gifting her. I like to light candle before bed, in bath or whenever I feel like it. This vanilla and hemlock holiday candle from The Starling Project (@starlingproject) became my new favoriate.
I have been struggling with my dry skin and dry hair for a few years. Moving to Southern California means more sun exposure and less humid air. 15 miles away from beach, I live in extremely dry conditions that my skin got extremely dry during fall and winter here in LA. “Use moisturizer,” everyone knows, right! But here is the question - there are too many options out there, and which brand could provide all-inclusive care for my skin, hair and body?
The length of my hair is outrageously long, at least for me. After several times of coloration and texturization, I still insist washing hair DAILY...It's such a pain to blow dry my long hair. But KareCo offered amazing brushes that fastened my blow-dry process.
Summer is my favorite season for blogging because I feel like wearing more tan products and creative makeup in this season. However, it would be more challenging for skincare with too much sun, cosmetics and outdoor activities.
Perricone MD's PRE:EMPT SERIES uses antioxidant-rich Turmeric, Olive Leaf, Cress Sprouts and Green Tea to refresh dull skin and minimize pores for this summer. I tried its Pre:Empt cleanser and pore refiner. The first step is to clean the skin with the cleanser which has light weight gel texture. The gel foams well and it efficiently removes the makeup residue and deeply cleans the pores. I don't feel any dryness after cleaning the face. The second step is to further minimize the pore refiner. At this step, I simply use a cotton pad to saturate it with this refiner and massage the liquid into the skin. After a few minutes, the liquid dries up and I can use other skincare products including the serum and moisturizer. The benefit of using pore refiner is to take care of large opening pores before other skincare products so I can feel my skin to be softer and smoother, showing natural complexion. This step also improves other skincare effectiveness.
Simply repeat these two steps in the morning and before bed. I observe exciting difference in about four weeks. Find the product at
So excited to try LamiDerm Apex High Performance Bio-serum. This is an all-in-one bottle for younger healthier skin. The serum is super absorbable. I tap the serum into skin before bed and it gives a healthy glow next morning. After using for a few weeks, I found this serum amazingly brightens my skin tone and restores my fine wrinkles. I especially like the high performing anti-UV rays ingredient which doesn't exist in other serums that I have used before. The ingredients in this bottel have been thoroughly tested for safety and efficacy. I just love this serum and would love to share with all the beauty junkies.
It's December when our lips need extra moisturizing and nourishing. I tried the holiday box from Beessential, a personal care brand using natural ingredients. These are cinnamon & clove flavored. On my lips, they taste a little like cinnamon donuts! I can't describe how smooth and creamy this lip balm is. It's all natural which I absolutely love. It makes my lips so moisturized and I can just rave about it on and on. The holiday packaging is a nice and simple tin with a bright red color. This has become my holy grail lip balm and it's only $10.99 for 5 on their website.
