JOIK Cleansing facial foam with cucumber & watercress extracts & aloe juice

Joik Advent Calendar Day 1 – Cleansing facial foam

Hello everyone!  So … this year I got my Christmas decorations  out early this year … middle of November early 😉 Shortly after that I was browsing LoveLula website and I came across Joik Advent Calendar.  Now, I am a complete Advent Calendar Newbie. I never ever had an advent calendar before. I actually felt in love with the packaging first. I absolutely love the box design. Then I did a quick brand research and thought to myself … gosh I really want to try this brand … and what a better way to try a new brand than get a bunch of samples… get yourself an advent calendar  … and that is exactly what I did.

All-Things-7-skincare-routine

My skincare routine inspired by Charlotte Cho

Hello everyone. A while ago I have introduced into my daily life Korean skincare routine . I always felt that my skin is high maintenance. There is no way I could go to sleep with my makeup still on and wake up without a few surprises and hundreds of blackheads on my face. Cleansing my face each day thoroughly  was always a priority for me ever since I was a teenager. I never had bad acne but since I was about 15 years old  I suffered from blackheads. I tried everything and twenty years later I still have them.

Glov makeuo remover vs facial wipes

Face Wipes vs Make up removing cloth by Glov

Hello, I come to you today with a bit of a rant and product comparison. I am annoyed with myself that I bought something without researching it or at least checking the ingredient list. To be honest it never crossed my mind that in a small facial wipe there can be so many harmful chemicals. Probably all these are in minimal amounts but any skincare junkie probably uses many products each day and all the chemicals absorbed through the skin can quickly add up. I have found an amazing chemical free alternative to face wipes. They require a little bit of maintenance but oh boy aren’t they worth it.
