#abmidyearstashchallenge

MOST RECENT

Continuing @mindyourbeauty and @peepingpomeranian's #abmidyearstashchallenge with serums. I really love the potency and burst of ingredients that serums provide. Really excited to share my collection for this one because of the variety
.
Low/no-buy tip 5: Why are you buying? With everything you buy, consider why you buy it. Are you shopping because you're stressed? Does the product fill a void in your inventory? Are you shopping because you're simply bored? I found that I like to shop when I'm stressed and bored. Nowadays, I've been filling my time with more exercise (tennis, to be specific), and therefore have had less time to online window shop. This way, I can focus more on what I have and I'm less tempted to buy things online or in store. Fill your time with other productive activities, like accomplishing personal goals. It's more rewarding in the long-run :)

Aaaaanddd, we're back! Specifically with essences for the @mind your beauty and @peepingpomeranian’s #abmidyearstashchallenge). But first, an announcement and low/no-buy tip!
.
So I'm super excited that my account is growing, and hopefully you're enjoying my posts! I'd like to show my appreciation once I hit 500 followers with a giveaway, so stay tuned :)
.
Low/no-buy tip 4: This week at work was pretty tough, I had some tricky deadlines to meet as well as a lot of new work to start. To be honest, shopping is a stress reliever for me, and I was so close to buying some lip balm and a new makeup bag. Then I told myself I didn't need it, and shared with others my success of not buying anything this time. Which brings me to today's tip of sharing your successes: sharing is caring, and makes your success more real (which it definitely is!) and tangible. Feel free to share your successes, highs, lows, anything at all with me, and if I can help in any way, I'll do my best:)
.
.
Onto essences!

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence: The largest bottle was a graduation gift to me from my family, and the two unopened ones are from my mom who bought them during her travels to Asia (shoutout to parents who understand and support your skincare addiction!)

The research is in and we know now that much of our health is determined in the gut. The 100 trillion beneficial bacteria, or probiotics in our gut work with bodily systems to help optimize blood sugar levels, bolster the immune system, boost metabolism, and maintain healthy hormone levels. This is why gut health is so closely tied to skin problems such as acne and just about every other aspect of our health.

Skincare isn't always about cleansing, masking, or put anything topically. It's about what you put topically and also what you eat💚

Toners on Thursday! Is that even a thing? It should be haha. I have so much to share with you, so get ready for a long post. Keep reading for a request from me to you, life update, and no/low-buy tip.
.
First, I need your help: my toner has run out and I want you guys to help me to decide what to use next. Feel free to vote for what you feel I should use next by commenting :) .
Next, yesterday while I was cooking, I accidentally cut my finger (my finger is fine, I just have a deep ish cut). It is currently “out of commission” as it is painful to do even some of the simplest things. I ended up skipping my skincare routine last night (except eye cream - always prevent those eye wrinkles haha) because I didn’t want the products to affect the cut. Do you guys have tips for how to do skincare, or even function, while injured? At this point I have no motivation to do anything because I just want to rest up and heal :/
.
Lastly, no/low-buy tip 3: check your inventory. Take some time to do a full inventory of all your products and see how much you have and when everything expires. Now take a look at what you’re about to buy. Are you going to be able to use up everything before it expires? Consider whether you’re really willing to pay what you’re about to pay but only for half of the amount of product you’re about to receive (simply because you may use it all up). Sometimes a good deal isn’t really a good deal since you’re paying for half of what you receive.
.
Continuing with @mindyourbeauty and @peepingpomeranian’s #abmidyearstashchallenge), today we have toners!

Use Glow Recipe Watermelon Jelly Sheet Mask as a cooling, hydrating skin treatment twice a week or a prep mask to smooth the look of skin and de-puff before your morning makeup. The texture of the mask is a unique, oil-free, jelly hydrogel. The transparent, pink tint barely makes it look like you're wearing a mask—which means sheet masking is now selfie approved. The mask conforms to your face and stays in place, making it easy to wear on-the-go.

Continuing @mindyourbeauty and @peepingpomeranian's #abmidyearstashchallenge with second cleansers. This is definitely one of my categories of my skincare routine because of how luxurious some of the cleansers feel, especially in foam form. Read until the end for another no-buy/low-buy tip!

.

Low/No Buy Tip #2: Ask yourself if you truly enjoy what you're buying, or even the act of buying. Many times after I make a haul, I receive everything and instantly regret adding more to my current stash. Yes it looks fun and "feels cool" to be like a skincare guru, but in the end I just feel wasteful because I probably won't finish using it by the expiration date. Consider whether or not you enjoy the product, or are really just trying to take advantage of a steal. If it's the latter, then maybe it's not actually worth buying the product.

Sorry for not upload new content constantly. For past few weeks, I've been busy for finishing my final paper and I'm so glad that it's finally done.
__
I've run out of sunscreen and Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy Finish SPF 50/PA++++ makes me wanna try it.
I love Etude House Soon Jung line that I've been using for couple months. They use clean ingredients and respect skin barrier. Skincare actually shouldn't disrupt how our skin works naturally, right?
__
It comes with a cute tiny mint bottle. The texture more like milk than creamy which is absorb into your skin fastly. I used Skin Aqua UV Moisture Gel before and I don't like that glowy finish on my face because it makes my skin looks oilier, but I think if you have dry skin Skin Aqua is better for you.
__
It claims with 20 kinds of vegetable ingredients to hydrate and protect skin from UV ray. It also contains essential oil so if your skin irritated easily by essential oil better not to use this. Honestly, it doesn't bother me at all.
__
No matter what sunscreen you've been using as long as you like it just keep use it. We should use sunscreen everyday and reapply it every 2 hours (if you can) to protect our skin from UV rays that harms our skin.

A magnetized contour & concealer stick in a longwear, light-as-air matte formula to conceal, correct, contour, and touch up in 20 shades.

As you may know, I've been abroad for the majority of the year so far. Studying abroad in Asia makes acquiring asian beauty products EXTREMELY easy, but also difficult to keep track of everything because my full stash was back home. After a couple of hauls, it's definitely time for an inventory check, and a low/no buy. @mindyourbeauty and @peepingpomeranian did a stash challenge (#abmidyearstashchallenge) a while back, and I thought it was a great idea. I don't have products in all the categories that they listed, so I'm modifying it a bit, but they've definitely inspired me to do a stash challenge. Along with that, I'll be posting tips that have helped me with a no buy.
.
.
Oil Cleansers:
.
Secret Key Perfect Zero Melting Cleanser
.
Pixi Beauty Nourishing Cleansing Balm
.
Banila Co. Clean It Zero
.
Cow Brand Mutenka Cleansing Oil
.
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil x 2
.
.
Low/No Buy Tip #1: Start slow. Setting far-reaching goals makes the achieving the goal seem like such a long haul. Instead, take it day by day. I like to tell myself that: "Rebecca, you've made it 3 days already, what's another 1?" or "Let's take it week by week. You accomplished your no buy last week, you can do another week". .
.
Have you tried these products? Are you on a no/low buy and what tips do you have? I'd love to hear about your stories :)
