It's been a long time instagram! Trying to get back after a few hurdles.

I was selected by @cupidrop.official to be a 3rd gen #beautifulpioneer to review some @hellopurpletale products. The product I was selected to review is their Once Upon a Neck Cream.
In some adorable purple packaging (I really love this brand's packaging) is a lovely, fluffy, creamy, delicately scented cream that I applied in upward motions.
I have been using this cream for 3 weeks. My neck feels moisturized and supple, but I am not sure that it feels any different than when I use my usual neck routine, which is everything that goes on mah face. I did like the cream, but am not sure why it is specifically for the neck. I'd be interested to see how it'd go if I just started using it on my face as well.
Overall, a nice product, although not sure how much more effective of a neck product it is than general moisturizer. +.23 for packaging! 3.73/5.

Been trying to slather lots of ceramides all over mah face lately because thanks to out of control hormones my skin is a stranger to me and has needed some extra lovin.
I got this @drjart mask a while ago, can't remember where, and always hesitate to use it because I like to hoard my pricey masks for no reason.
Fit pretty well, decent amount of essence, pretty mild scent. I left it on for about 30 mins, I felt fairly hydrated but didn't really notice anything special. I'd say I probably have had better results from cheaper ceramide/hydrating masks.
3.017/5. I don't think I'd repurchase, not because it sucked but because I'd just use a cheaper product for similar results.

This week has been unseasonably warm in the nyc area, and it made me want to break out my beach ball and flip flops...so I did.
Speaking of warm weather, I wanted to talk about a skincare gem that is pretty popular in the #abcommunity - @mizon_official Snail Recovery Gel Cream. Also a product that is a great finisher in my warm weather routine.
First of all, snail has magical properties. This ooey gooey goodness has amazing healing, moisturizing and anti-aging properties (this is why my goblet is full of snail). And this gel cream in particular is a great buy! Seriously, at 5 dollars a tube, go try it. Worst case you hate it and you only spent 5 bucks, but you probably won't hate it. At 74% snail, there is lots of magic going on in this pink 5 dollar tube.
This is a light weight gel cream that I use as the last step of my am routine. With regular use my skin feels smoother and plump. I use it as the last step because it is actually a pretty decent base for makeup. Not greasy at all and sinks right in. It doesn't break me out and when I do have breakouts, the snaily goodness helps heal them faster.
This is one of the first #asianbeauty products I ever used, and it definitely helped spur my addiction. And it's pink! Yay! It's not super fancy and it's a pretty basic product but at its price point and performance you can't beat it.
This cream is a 4.98/5 in my score book. Get some to slather on yo face!

I am excited on so many levels to be posting this. 1st, I have been out of commission for a while due to some medical issues, and am super excited to be back amongst the land of skincare. 2nd, I was selected by @cupidrop.official to be a 3rd generation #beautifulpioneer to review some awesome @hellopurpletale products! When I got the email from Jenny, I was doing the happy dance in my cubicle at work. Finally, I wasn't able to post on Valentine's day and finally get to use these adorable #owls I've been hoarding!
I'll be reviewing the @hellopurpletale 5 step to lovely skin kit-an innovative product that is basically a portable routine (for all you #skincare addicts, you know you are intrigued). The first step, a foam cleanser, was probably my least favorite part of the kit, it was a little too stripping and left my skin too squeaky.
The 2nd step ampoule was a pretty standard watery layer that seemed like it did its job.
3rd step was a hydrating hydrogel mask (or face condom as I like to call them),that left my skin feeling plump and hydrated, albeit a little too short and wide.
4th step was the a facial cream, my favorite step of the routine,it just felt great going on my skin and after I applied my skin looked dewy and felt more even.
the 5th and final step was a neck cream which I will be reviewing in more detail soon!
Overall, the 5 steps worked well together and my skin felt moisturized and looked glowy-3.71/5 because while I liked the overall effect, I didn't care for the cleanser and that might actually stop me from repurchasing the entire product. If I did consider repurchasing this it would be for a convenient travel routine.
Thank you @cupidrop.official and @hellopurpletale for the chance to try this!

@peepingpomeranian #abnewyearstashchallenge day 30. Eyes and brows!
Now I am not so great at the #makeup. I suck at it. When I put on eyeliner, I look like I am trying my hand at abstract art, and eyeshadow gives me the "I am an aspiring clown" look.
But if there is one thing I have perfected, it is the eye lash! I have more than a few mascaras pictured above, some samples, but the ones I purchase are mostly drugstore brands. But.my HG trio are the 3 in the middle, that give me an almost false looking lash. I do all my mascaras in black.
πŸ¦„ @maybelline The Colassal Volume Mascara is the big yellow tube. My first step. Plumps and separates wonderfully. If I am only using one mascara, this is the one, HG 5/5. And run you about 5 dollars at Walmart.
πŸ₯@covergirl Lash Exact. This mascara is for definition and length. I usually do this as my 2nd mascara, it lengthens my last even more but keeps them separated. For a #nomakeupmakeup look, this is great to use with just a swipe or 2. Also around 5 dollars. 4.5/5
🐧 @d.j.v fiberwig mascara. This is a mascara that claims to elongate the lash with fibers so you get more of that false lash look. When I used this mascara on its own, I was very disappointed. But when I used it as the 3rd step of my mascara application (you know you are into #asianbeauty when you even have multiple steps for your mascara) it added extra length and umph to my lashes and made them look amazing!! 4/5.
There are also some other mascaras and some eyeliners in the photo, but these 3 are my go-tos. I can't wait to see everyone else's mascara pics!

Day 29 in the
@peepingpomeranian #abnewyearstashchallenge is lip products!
My sporadic participation lately has been due partially to being sick, and partially because I really don't own many of any products in the more recent categories. When it came to lip products I was like well shoot, I reckon I purchase plenty of those (because I do).
And yet, somehow, these 2 products are the only ones I could find around the house or in my purse. I swear there's a creature whose sole purpose is to make sure I only have 1 sock in a pair, and hides my lip balm so I discover it somewhere a year later.
Pictured here I have fresh suga red lip treatment. Clear tint, pretty moisturizing ok product. Pricey for the fact it doesn't even work better than my fave, which is eos.
I also have this cool Twenty Four/Seven duo honey color tint balm and lip treatment oil that I got at the #nyckbeautymeetup haven't used it yet but looks nifty.
I also have the su:m lip essential balm I received as a gift a few days ago (pictured 2 posts ago) but after looking around for it for 5 minutes, my sick ass was pooped.

I was super excited when I opened this @huxley_korea Spa Mask Set. I had seen this in @woodnote_song feed and drooled enviously over it. Little did I know it was I a koreapost box on its way to my home. I have only used the keep calm mask, which I LOVED but can't wait to try the other 2! And can you believe it there was still MORE in that box! Will post soon. Thank you AGAIN amazing friends! ❀❀❀

This^ has pretty much been me since I got home from work to a large box sent via korea post addressed from @nourishtheskin
When I opened the box, there was a card. When I opened the card and realized what was going on I immediately teared up.
This group of bad ass, amazing women I have met through the #abcommunity had gotten together to send me a wedding present! (I got married last month). In the card were little hearts with a message from each lady. Can I tell you how proud and in awe I am that I get to know these people?! I am so happy that I get to be a part of this amazing group of women!
AND OMG!!!! They got me the su:m 37 cushion that I have been drooling over for ever (and a special edition one with refills!!), along with a su:m37 lip balm. And omg a whole bunch of other goodies I will have to post in another picture.
But really, my favorite part was all the little hearts. Rarely in life does a girl get to feel so lucky, blessed and loved. I am deeply touched by their generous gesture and words cannot express how grateful and happy I am. In the order that I read the hearts: @curbsidetreasure @sbrbeauty
@saltwaterglow @woodnote_song @maskaddict @theglowinghoneybee @jeekee.noona @catachreses_ @littlehauls @modgeek @mindyourbeauty @nourishtheskin @camilia127 @neeru_beeru @peepingpomeranian @hipsterskincare @colebiancardi @beepgirlunni
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Seriously you guys have blown my mind and made my 2017 so far. So much love!! ❀❀❀❀❀

Day 21 of the @peepingpomeranian #abnewyearstashchallenge hair styling/color.
So I have realized that I am pretty damn boring when it comes to my hair and body and own mostly drugstore products. But at least today, my product has pretty packaging so I went for it. I even got all fancy with the VSCO photo editor for the 1st time in an attempt to improve my poo photos. #art#Istillsuck
So the only styling product I use in my hair lately is Madam C.J. Walker's Scent and Shine Coconut Oil. And since I have only one, I figured I could REVIEW!
This is a very light weight oil that I sometimes can go overboard on because it seems so light but DAMN does a little go a long way. It claims to be moisturizing and nourishing.
The first time I used this product, the clouds parted in the sky, and a light from the heavens shone upon me, and a chorus of cherubs πŸ˜‡ sang Hallelujah.
In hair terms, my hair was smoother, softer, and frizz free. Plus a faint scent of coconut, so if you haven't yet gathered from what I have said, it's heaven in my hair!
All I do is use a few pumps in my hair while it's damp and voila!
I think this product is supposed to be for curly hair πŸ˜‚ but that doesn't stop me from slathering some on when I am blowing it out for that sleek, soft fabulous feel.
Moisturizing and nourishing indeed! 5/5. I purchase this @Sephora for about 20 bucks and it lasts a pretty long time. Can't wait to see everyone's recommendations for hair styling products!
