Time rushes on, summer turns into even hotter Second Summer, and I’ve got a fresh batch of off-blog articles for you!
First up, over on new AB shop GlowieCo‘s blog, I’ve gathered five of my favorite sheet mask tips and tricks to get the most out of your masking sessions.
I’m a very frequent and consistent sheet masker. I use sheet masks 4-5 nights a week and have for a long time. I recognize, however, that many people either don’t want to use sheet masks that often, or simply can’t. In those cases, you can get the most out of your masks by using them when your skin will most benefit from them.

Next up, a reluctant review of COSRX Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream over on Beautytap editorial. Contains an impromptu semi-rant about the direction COSRX has been going in lately as well as explanation of how I can finish an entire tube of a product and not feel like I really like it that much.
I find that when my skin is in a normal and healthy state, the Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream doesn’t do much for me. I’m picky about moisturizers in general, which is why it takes me so long to finish most of them.
Finally, I looked into the world of beauty vitamins for Beautytap editorial. There are a lot of beauty supplements out there these days, and while they can be promising theoretically, the execution still strikes me as exceptionally sketchy.
With some rare exceptions, the beauty supplement concept never appealed to me. When you ingest something, it has to be broken down in your digestive system and nutrients then distributed to the rest of your body. Conventional wisdom and personal experience both suggest that skin gets the short end of the stick.
There’s always more to come. I’ll be back, though next time it will be with a product review on this blog!
