From the time I was 8 until I was around 10 years old, I had some strange breakouts that plagued me (and my poor Mother while we were in France!). I got teased quite a bit because of it. When kids called me the traditional, silly, childhood names reserved for acne I wasn’t really bothered because they were mislabeling the issue. They weren’t zits, but nobody really knew what was going on with my face. At one point it all just cleared up, and since then I’ve always been the kind of person who found pride in being able to wash my makeup off with soap and water and still have pretty flawless skin.
Have you ever wondered where the Korean celebrities and TV stars go to get their gorgeous camera-ready looks? Here are some great things that you can do to get the Korean beauty look when you visit Seoul. Of course, let’s leave out the big plastic surgery. :p
Nature Republic Bee Venom Cream
, I figured I'd continue that theme with the Nature Republic Bee Venom Cleansing Foam that I've been using recently, since it's lovely and smells like...well I can't quite decide what it smells like but I love it.
It's been almost a year since I did any beauty reviews (it's because I became ugly!) and since the last thing I wrote about was the
I picked up this Bee Venom Cream from Nature Republic a while ago, but I wanted to give it time to really start working before I reviewed it on here. What caught my eye immediately was that the packaging said it was "for skin that gets easily irritated and suffers from redness." That is me in a nutshell. Seriously, my skin thinks it's some kind of delicate princess. If you so much as look at it funny it'll get red and dumb. As the weather heats up, this has become even worse, so I decided to try out some Bee Venom Cream. Also, cream with bee venom just sounds cool, right?
Okay first off the packaging is really pretty. I love the color, and it really suggest a fresh and cool feeling. Granted, Nature Republic products don't have the cutesy vibe that I usually go for, but the clean, simple lines reflect the clean and simple products you can find at Nature Republic.
Again with the ridiculously long names. Anyways, I've been using this product for a few months now, and finally getting around to reviewing it! As you may have guessed, I got out of my Etude House rut for once and picked this up from Nature Republic, as I was in need of a lightweight emulsion/essence now that the weather is so hot and I'm a sweaty American. The Super Aqua Max Fresh Watery Essence, which sounds a bit like the name of a mecha, turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.
Anyways! So digression. Much sidetracked. Wow.
In hopes of bringing my feet back from the hell I've subjected them to, I picked up (from Etude House, where else?) the Rich Butter Foot Mask shown in the picture.
As I've already admitted to the horrible things I've subjected my hair to, I guess my feet are fair game. Only that they aren't. Fair, that is. I walk everywhere, so the poor things take a beating on a daily basis. Sometimes I wear good shoes, but more often than not I slump around in my ratty old broken sneakers, flats with absolutely no support, or heels. I'm not quite a hobbit, but my feet will win no beauty contests. If that's even a thing.
