  1. Great giveaway! I've not used any of the products you introduced but since I had used one tube of the snail recovery gel that was the attraction for me to join the giveaway :P My favourite new beauty find would have to be a new brand, CORSX, found in Jolse for example. I have an Advanced snail 96 mucin essence and BHA A-Sol and I like both products a lot. It's the one Asian brand I've found that makes dedicated chemical exfoliants.

  2. I really like the Mizon King Berry cream as a light moisturizer, especially as I live in a humid area.

  3. Awesome giveaway! My current favorite is the Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream~

  4. I am such a make up dunce. Really, I'm 30 years old and realizing only now that I have no clue what I'm doing!

    1. Oh man, I love teaching people how to do their makeup! If I was there or you were here I'd take an afternoon and go shopping with you and then teach you how to put everything on! I think you're living in a place where it's a good place for you to learn how to do it, especially skincare - I would probably have no money left if I lived in South Korea since that's the place where 85% of my skincare products come from.

      My skin completely changed when I switched from Western to Asian products (when I was living in Denver you could buy many of them locally - now that I'm in Michigan I have to mail order most things I use unless we're in Toronto for the weekend.) As far as makeup goes, I learned a bunch of techniques when I was younger and was sitting in makeup chairs a lot and have further refined them from Youtube Tutorials. I'm still not great but I look presentable when I try and I've figured out what I'm capable and not capable of!

      Finally... Savvist put together this tool that you can use to help you find someone who's doing tutorials that matches your own hair/skin/eye colors and types so if you're looking for a place to start you can check it out:

  5. Love that serum; first I've used but definitely a keeper!

    1. That's awesome! I feel like my skin feels like velvet after I'm done using it!
