#abmidyearstashchallenge Day 15: Wash Off Masks-- this used to be by far my most obscene hoarder category. I've destashed down to some really great masks, and I've def slowed my roll and quit buying new. The Naruko is meh, the sulwhasoo is good but I won't repurchase, everything else is πŸ’£. #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #asianskincare #rasianbeauty #skincare #skincareaddict #skincareroutine #skincarejunkie #sulwhasoo #naruko #toocooforschool #imfrom

#abmidyearstashchallenge Day 14 Sleeping Packs-- this is another category I have recently destashed and so I absolutely enjoy every product pictured. I am still trying to figure out of the Sulwhasoo Radiance Energy Mask is worth the πŸ’Έ. But both Cosrx masks are so good for the πŸ’Έ #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #amabiebeauty #amabiedryskin #asianskincareblogger #asianbeautyblogger #asianskincare #beautyblogger #skincare #skincareaddict #skincareroutine #glowingskin #sleepingpack #sulwhasoo #jone #cosrx

#abmidyearstashchallenge Day 13: Sunscreen-- yet another day where I absolutely do not have a stash... this is the first and only sunscreen I've ever loved under makeup, it's cheap and easily accessible so why try to fix what ain't broken. I apply it with a cushion puff and it's sheer heaven! #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #asianskincare #asianskincareblogger #asianbeautyblogger #sunscreen #spf #biore #skincare #skincareaddict #skincareroutine #glowingskin #amabiebeauty #amabiedryskin

#abmidyearstashchallenge Day 12: Oils-- I don't really use oils; I've tried a few but never really enjoyed anything enough to use it consistently. And yes, I know- this isn't a true oil, but I use it in the same way most would use an oil. I am freaking obsessed with this stuff. Seriously- this paired with a really good cream like the Pyunkang Yul Nutrition Cream or the Sulwhasoo Hydro-Aid Soothing Cream and good lawd my skin loves that shit! And now that Jolse sells it for a halfway decent price πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» I know Huxley gets a lot of hype- and not everything is life changing, but for me, this is pure gold! #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeautyblogger #amabiedryskin #amabiebeauty #asianskincare #skincare #skincarereview #skincareroutine #glowingskin #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #huxley

#abmidyearstashchallenge Day 11: Creams & Gels-- I keep it kinda simple in this category... the Huxley and Frudia are am gel creams, the Mizon And Swanicoco are ok but on their way out of rotation and the Pyunkang Yul and Sulwhasoo are the literal loves of my life rn-- because of the thickness I can only use them in the pm (I could probably use the Sulwhasoo in the am but... πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ) -- I will 100% without a doubt repurchase both of these, and possibly the Huxley and Frudia since they're both more cost effective than my beloved Hera Waterin Gel. #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeautyblogger #rasianbeauty #asianskincare #asianbeauty #skincarereview #skincare #amabiebeauty #amabiedryskin #huxley #frudia #mizon #swanicoco #pyunkangyul #sulwhasoo

#abmidyearstashchallenge Day 10: Eye Care-- like most of us (I think...) I feel like I am in an eternal search for a great eye cream. I've liked some, but I've hated more. Right now I'm using the LJH Vital Firming Eye Cream and it's good, but I got it for like $5 when memebox was closing and I def would not pay the $58 full price. The Whamisa Eye Essence doesn't really seem to add anything extra. The Koelf eye patches are great for the price, but I find cloth masks more effective-- everything else is unopened. PLEASE if you have any HG status eye creams comment down below, I will seriously love you forever!! #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #kbeautyaddict #koreanbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #asianskincare #rasianbeauty #skincare #skincarereview #skincareroutine #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincareblogger #amabiebeauty #amabiedryskin #whamisa #sulwhasoo #ljh #goodal #koelf #elizavecca

Another amazing giveaway-- I have been so interested in this brand! Thanks for the opportunity @shopamabie @thankyoufarmer #amabiebeauty

#abmidyearstashchallenge Day 9: Emulsions-- I don't have many, but what I do have I am insanely in love with! (Except the packaging on the Swanicoco but I feel like the AB community has already successfully commented on that lol). #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #asianskincare #rasianbeauty #skincare #skincarereview #glowingskin #amabiebeauty #amabiedryskin

I have been inspired recently by a couple of challenges. While doing @peepingpomeranian's #abmidyearstashchallenge I have really noticed products that I love vs. the ones that are just ok (I never hold on to anything I hate), and I've noticed categories that are really just too overloaded. Then I saw #10products10days by @beautyandthemountains -- so, I have come up with my own personal challenge. Combined with a No Buy-- I have assembled 12 products, that I'm going to use exclusively until something runs out. When that happens, I'll do a post about what's leaving, with a full review, and what's going into the routine and why. This is going to help me destash, encourage me to write more full reviews for empties and help me prepare for the influx of goodies from KCON and the upcoming fall/winter sale season. I'm not putting hard end date on this experiment, but it will for sure go until KCON, so if you want to join me in this #destashrelay, use the tag and also tag me in your posts so I can peep your progress! --
Beginning lineup:
Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Oil EX (bc it works but I don't love it)
Hada Labo Gokujyun Foaming Cleanser (bc I'm almost out anyway)
Neogen Bio-Peel+ Gauze Peeling Pads in Green Tea (bc I love them but they're coming up on their 6m)
Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner (bc I love it but it's almost gone and there's an absolute army of toners I need to murder)
LJH Tea Tree 90 Essence (bc it's nice but I don't really benefit from it now that my hormonal acne is clear)
Skinfood Peach Sake Pore Serum (bc I love it)
Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (bc I love it but it's coming up on its 12m)
(Decant) Scinic All In One Honey Ampoule (bc I love it and it's almost gone)
Huxley Cream Fresh and More (bc it's really good)
LJH Vital Firming Eye Cream (bc it's currently the best I have and it's almost gone)

I have been using this Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner for about a month now. If you're looking for the TL;DR version of this review, you can probably just look at the nearly empty bottle to figure out how much I've been enjoying this toner.But if you're looking for the deets, here we go...
.
.
Packaging: no frills here, just a simple plastic bottle with minimalist design. But it is absolutely worth mentioning that the spray action on this bottle is πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ. It is a really fine mist with a wide spray. In fact it's so good, that when I'm done with this, I will be refilling the bottle with other toners. .
.
Price/value: this bottle is 150ml of product for $14. Although I've gone through it rather quickly, I find this to be a really good value-- I just have a heavy trigger finger when it comes to mists, so that's my bad, y'all! .
.
Claims: according to melodycosme.com--
The vitamin c found in green tea will brighten complexion, the tannis will control sebum and remove excess dead skin cells, anti-inflammatory/antioxidant, contains humectants to aid in hydration. - so it's actually interesting, because I didn't read any of the claims before using this toner, and I was just noticing a few days ago how despite being 91* here in the OC, that I have been a lot less oily lately... I don't really need help with brightening, but hydration- absofrickinlutely.

Any downsides? Just one... because this is a pretty natural product, every once in a while, there was a very subtly scent that I did not love. It was a little to earthy for me. But it was only once in a while.

Here are some number of masks I've done over some number of days. I have been so disorganized with maskies and reviews since the move. I promise I'll get it together here soon. πŸ’– #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #kbeautyaddict #asianbeauty #asianskincare #asianbeautyblogger #beautyblogger #beauty #skincare #skincarejunkie #sheetmask #skincarejunkie #skincareblogger #frudia #helloskin #myscheming #mybeautydiary
