Review: Sulwhasoo Essential Rejuvenating Eye Cream

My 12th eye cream since starting this blog! Who knew finding an eye cream for my dark circles and under eye fine lines would be this hard. Good thing most Korean products have samples that I can buy so I can try so many without being broke.

If I were to summarize my eye creams until now, for my dark circles, Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Cream has been the most effective (doesn't remove it completely of course..for details you can read my review here). For fine lines, nothing has really helped consistently. The Face Shop Smim Fermentation Concentrate Eye Cream has been the most effective, but I have recently realized that the sample I've tried may have been just the normal face cream and not the eye cream (lost in translation).... I have since bought the full size of the eye cream which I will be trying next. That's when I started thinking maybe Skinfood's relatively inexpensive eye creams are not strong enough for my aging eyes (sad, I know) and that I needed to explore the higher-end brands like History of Whoo and this one, Sulwhasoo.

Review: Missha Super Aqua Refreshing Cleansing Foam

I've tried another cleanser from the same Super Aqua line, Missha Super Aqua Oxygen Micro Visible Deep Cleanser, and was very impressed with its truly "deep" cleansing compared to the other cleansers (details in my blog post here). However, the only problem was that you needed to wait for this cleanser to bubble, which is impossible for me because I'm always in a hurry in the morning. So when I got this sample with one of my orders, I thought, maybe this will give me the deep cleansing without the wait time?!

I'm back (from exams and vacation)!

First of all, many apologies for not replying to your comments. I finished exams and got on a plane the day after. I think I've replied to all those who asked me a question, so if you're still checking this blog, please check. If I haven't replied you, please let me know.

This is a photo I took when I went on vacation.. I wonder if anyone who reads this has been here too? I went there with absolutely no expectations and didn't research much because I had exams but was absolutely blown away. It's a beautiful place.

Meanwhile, while I was gone I made two orders while I was on vacation and was lucky enough to get a bunch of samples. Since school is out I'll have more time to try and review them here. I've just finished using one today and I'll be trying them each one by one so stay tuned!
