I must confess: up until this summer, I never double cleansed. Yes – I was one of those fools who thought, “my skin is already oily so I don’t need more oil”. Wrong!
While at KCON a few months ago, I attended a panel with multiple K-beauty experts (including Charlotte Cho, founder of Soko Glam). Charlotte basically dispelled the common misconception that double cleansing is unnecessary. All skin types, even oily, will benefit from a double cleanse. But you guys probably knew that. I’m definitely late to the game on this one!
Here’s the first cleansing balm I ever tried, and it’s a GREAT one. My friend gave me a sample to try out ages ago (as seen here). After basically falling in love after first use, I knew I had to order the full-size:
December 4th is National Cookie Day. Did you guys know that? I certainly didn’t. How did I find out? I saw a news release about these Cookie BonBites from Cinnabon, which debuted last week on National Cookie Day.
You’re probably wondering what a Cookie BonBite is. I was curious too. It’s basically if a cookie and a cinnamon roll had a baby. Or if a cookie was pregnant with a cinnamon roll? LOL it’s just a mini cinnamon roll enveloped in a chocolate chip cookie, and duh I had to try it.
Free fairlife milk for coming in on National Cookie Day!
A few snippets from around here lately:
Some funky, colorful street art I came across in Long Beach.
I love to take road trips! Some people hate the drive, but all I need is a good playlist and a cup of coffee (if I’m the one in the driver’s seat). There’s something about being out on the open road that is both calming and exhilarating at the same time.
Up ahead are some pictures from my latest desert adventure. There’s an amazing outdoor gallery, or “sculpture garden”, where artist Ricardo Breceda boasts a huge lot of his unique metal structures. Breceda’s sculptures alone are neat, but with the desert landscape in the background, the entire scene is incredibly picturesque.
