Smelling the roses 🌹🌹🌹
.
Visited the International Rose Test Garden in the City of Roses (Portland, Oregon) 😍 . The garden was devised to help save European roses that would have been destroyed in WWI. Today it holds over 10,000 bushes and over 650 varieties of roses. New rose hybrids are tested for disease resistance, bloom formation, color and fragrance
.
This was a free attraction and on the way to the Japanese Garden too⛩! A must-visit!

#Mood. Currently in the #CityofRoses (Portland, Oregon)🌹 and I'm having a blast seeing fall foliage, quaint buildings and tons of roses! Seeing the 10,000 bushes of roses and 650 varieties in the International Rose Test Garden was beautiful and made me appreciate the REAL smell of roses 👃🌹🌹🌹
.
When I don't have real roses on hand, I can grab these @commleaf_official rose products that use real rose petals and EWG certified ingredients
.
🌹 Rose Sleeping Pack. YUM. This pack is so pretty and I love how it seals everything in. Not sticky and fuss-free
.
🌹 Rose Blooming Face Mist. The mister on this is super fine and I love the light fragrance. MMM
.
🌹 Rose Moisture Pads. These are pre-soaked cotton pads with their rose toner. These pack a TON of toner and it absorbs super well on my face. I really love how convenient these are

Love at first sight 😍 The @commleaf_official 🍃 #VitaRice line caught my eye before I even knew its name. What brand made u fall in love with at first sight?
.
These are the #newnew and dropped few weeks ago.The pretty ice-like bottles and pentagon shape was the prettiest packaging I've seen in a while. The pentagon represents the Vita 5 Complex💊: Panthenol (skin barrier protection), Vitamin B6 (oil inhibitor), Vitamin C (brightening), Biotin (cell growth agent), Vitamin B12 (cell production)
.
The prices are also reasonable for something so gorgeous in packaging!
.
🍚 Vitarice Glow Serum $39
.
🍚 Vitarice Essence Water $38
.
🍚 Vitarice Moisture Cream $35
.
First impressions: Everything absorbed really well and fragrance wasn't too overpowering. The brand uses rice and rice bran extracts and for my ferment freaks, there's fermented rice extracts too! Ferments allow these nutritional ingredients sink deeper in skin! My skin is.so.plump. I cant wait to keep using this into the winter

💝 All the #textures 💝 I'm so freakin' in love with @femmue that these skipped the #skincarestash line and hopped right onto my vanity. Each one is so unique in #texture and function in your #skincareroutine that I had to feature it in this #TextureTuesday
.
🛁Cleansing Balm. If I only had to buy one product at the @PeachandLily sample sale, it was this first cleanse balm that I had my eye on FOREVER. It's SO much more "stickier" than other cleansing balms that have a more sorbet feel but it melts makeup well and skin feels very nourished. I end up using more of this bc it doesn't spread out as easily as others but skin feel more moisturized
.
🥚 Skin smooth like an egg. The Fine Peel is a physical exfoliator that had very fine particles in it and it does an amazing job in sloughing off dead skin cells while putting back moisturization
.
🌹The Rose Mask is such a fun mask to use after cleansing! It has a jelly base with real bits of rose petals (that probably do nothing but provide dat aesthetic)
.
This is like the Holy Trinity. I love how I can use all three pretty things and feel extra #fancy

🌸NEW BLOG POST🌸 Photo Tour of 🍡Chi Snack Shop🍲 is on the blog and added to my #Kbeauty Shopping Guide! This cute shop is located right in the middle of St. Mark's Place and u won't be able to miss it with its colorful pink facade. At first this shop was selling 100% Asian snacks but soon it started to carry more and more #KoreanBeauty and #JapaneseBeauty where the shelves are now 90% beauty
.
What impressed me the most is the wide selection of drugstore and luxury beauty brands it carried, especially for #JBeauty. Brands I saw were THREE, ADDICTION, SUQQU, The Ginza by Shiseido, CANMAKE, shiro, Twany Century, HABO, Labo Labo, and more. Surprisingly I didn't see anything from Hado Labo (but u can go to New Kam Man for that)
.
Some Kbeauty brands I saw were 3CE, Shangpree, Etude House, VT, VDL, Sulwhasoo, The History of Whoo, and more. They only carried select or cult items from each brand as there isn't enough shelf space
.
And of course the snacks! They had all the popular Japanese snacks that were recommended to me when I went to Tokyo in 2016. Tokyo Milk Cheese🧀, Hokkaido Milk Cookies🥛, Shiroi Koibito, Prohibited 18 Curry Chips🔥, Roasted Corn flavored Pretz🌽 and even Ichiran ramen packs🍲
.
As for prices, be aware of what you should be paying for them and compare online. The Japanese luxury beauty markup was quite high but if can't go to Japan, it might just be worth shelling the extra $ for some coveted beauty

🌈Dreamy #Sunday afternoon playing with new #Kbeauty #makeup 💄! New brand arrival, @joahbeauty is available only in @CVS pharmacy so u can pick up a snack AND new makeup that LOOKS like a snack 🍌🥒🥚😂🤣😂🤣. "Joah" means "I like it" in Korean and I'm liking it a lot so far! #JoahBeauty is #KoreanBeauty inspired bc its parent company is @kissproducts which is a USA based company but manufactures most products in Korea🇰🇷
.
First Impressions:
🍬 Birthday Suit Eyeshadow Palette ($9.99). I'm wearing a full face of Joah today and I swatched this yday on my Stories. The shadows are surprisingly smooth and velvety! They were pigmented on my hand and on my eyes it showed up well too. The palette is great for a natural look, swipe left to see my #LOTD
.
🍬 I'm So Fly-liner ($7.99). This is a liquid felt tipped eyeliner. The design is a bit chunky than I'm used to but felt liner makes a nice BLACK line for that winged look
.
🍬 Precision Brow Pencil ($8.99). This has a very thin pencil and a spoolie at the end. I got a medium brown and it blends in great with my dark brown brows (I dont like my brows looking too dark). Very natural looking and easy to use for everyday
.
🍬 I'm Your Jelly Bae Matte Gel Lipstick ($5.99). This is not a typical shade I gravitate too so I'll talk about the formula. It feels very moisturizing and leaves a matte finish likes it says. The gel formula is really cool bc it feels and applies like jelly but looks matte
.
Overall VERY impressed with this line! Affordable and has great quality for #drugstoremakeup. The packaging is also ultra cute and fun. I'd definitely check out more items if I can find them in a #CVS
.
This was shipped to me #complimentary from @influenster to test and review. All opinions are my own. #contest #influenster #Joah

💐Currently trying out all the pinks! #Skincare collection has changed a bit because I desperately want to use up products (how else can I buy new shit?). See anything here u like too?
.
🍓@lanolips Starwberry lip ointment is made out of sheep wool oil that can absorb and make any body part more moisturized. I thought it was too sticky at first but on the lips, it can absorb and the stickiness goes away. Bought st @ultabeauty
.
🍓@jjyoung.us Pore Perfecting Multi Cream has been great for lazy weeknight #skincareroutines. The more you pat it in, the more it melts and turns into a watery texture
.
🍓@opi Nail Envy nail protector has far exceeded my expectations! This strengthener stayed on longer with less chips and when I took off the coats, my nails actually feel smoother and conditioned!
.
🍓@misshaus Safe Sunblack Essence Sun SPF 45 PA+++ (pink bottle) has an amazing velvety, silky finish. It's like a primer and sunblock in one. I cant believe I didn't buy this sooner. It will be good for the fall when the weather is colder bc I think it feels too thick in summer months
.
🍓@heimish_korea All Clean Balm. I just had to see what the hype was about with this cleansing balm compared to my @banilaco_official Clean It Zero. It's much more minty smelling but takes off makeup just like the Banilla one. Perhaps the only thing that tips my votes in a favorite is the the lid has to ways u can open it, by unscrewing it or by flipping just the top part off
.
🍓@dr.dream_official_kr Rose Powder Serum. I had this for a long time from a sample sale but after using this for a few nights, I might just chuck it away. The powder absorbs and turns into a serum for sure but it has such a messy application that I just dont see the point🤷‍♀️. I can't tell where I applied it and when it gets in my face, it's balled up until I smack my face for it to absorb 👎
.
🍓@femmue I didn't get to this one yet bc it's another cleansing balm, but PINK!

🌸Glam shot of the @duftndoft #PinkMilk #sheetmask 🌸. See previous review of gorgeous #millennialpink mask. Ultra creamy and milky, this mask should slather away any dry patches once the winter hits because of it provides a thick layer that seals in your prior #skincare steps. You can pick this right in @cvspharmacy!
.
Do u have a favorite sheet mask to wear when u just want something cute to wear? 🍨

🌸Serious #pinkvibes🌸 from the @duftndoft_usa #PinkMilk #sheetmask! Pick yours up at a participating @cvspharmacy (see my video tour on the #kbeauty selection in NYC on YouTube)
.
😁Do u guys have any favorites from CVS?! the selection is always looking better and better!
.
This mask has a milky essence that claims to brighten and moisturize. It has a slight rose and herbal/medicinal scent which smelled fine to me although I wasn't in love with it
.
🤩 PROS: The sheet itself is VERY thick and adhered well to my face. The slits along the sides made it easy to adjust, only gripe is that the nose flap was a bit too long so I had to fold up the end to prevent suffocation (just an every day masking hazard haha). The mask lasted well into 45 mins of wear and I took it off after an hour bc the edges of the nose and chin started to dry out. I did notice a brightening effect after using the mask, my skin was really dewy looking and the moisturization lasted into the next morning 👍
.
😐 CONS: I recommend this mask for night time use bc the essence is very thick and there's a draggy feeling bc the top layer never really dried down or fully absorbed. However, I think this is an intentional formula design so the occlusive layer prevents drying out while you sleep. Pro-tip: Because of this, sheet mask AFTER cleansing, first essence, toner, serum to really seal in all that goodness. So this isn't really a CON if u use this mask at the right steps in your #skincareroutine
.
I bought this mask at a CVS as well as at the @peachandlily sample bc it expires soon in Nov (for $1!!!). Take advantage of the CVS deals, when you buy bunch of them they're cheaper the more you buy

The month the box has a lot of charcoal, volcanic ash, and bubbling masks! What fancies your eye from this bunch? I love the #Ultru brand so I'm most excited for the mud mask .
