Lately it feels as if all of my writing is for outlets other than this blog, whether it’s for my Instagram (home for reviews and rants that can fit into a single caption and usually only require one picture) or for other sites (which I do have to do, because bills). But I am writing, and I’m trying to make sure those of you who visit the blog first don’t miss anything you might want to read!
Speaking of writing, the edit of my book is taking much longer than expected. I should have known better than to think that finishing the original draft was the bulk of the work–I’ve been around this block before! Between editing, rearranging, trying not to chew my nails down to stubs in fits of anxiety and self-doubt, and going through some personal things which have taught me lessons that I’d also like to add to the book in the form of at least one more chapter, things are going slowly.
I so appreciate the patience you guys are showing. I’ve got the pre-order records and will think of something extra for those of you who jumped in early and are waiting for your copies!
In the meantime, I’ve written up some new COSRX releases that I think some of you may be interested in.
First up is the new COSRX Full Fit propolis line. I’ve tried the ampoule before, but the toner and cream are new to both me and our market here in the US, and I was really excited about them!
COSRX discloses the concentrations of their bee ingredients a little differently for the cream. The box states that the product contains 65.69% “Full Fit Pro-Barrier Complex,” which combines propolis, honey, and royal jelly extracts. I’m guessing here that the propolis makes up the vast majority of the complex, with the honey and royal jelly extracts present in far smaller amounts that might look silly listed out on the label. In any case, as long as the product performs well, that’s fine.
And second up is the new COSRX Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream. We all know I’m no stranger to using snail cream around my eyes, but now there’s a dedicated product for that.
I’ve been using the COSRX Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream on my left eye and the original COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream on my right eye for two weeks now, and I have some thoughts. So let’s dig in.
Read it here. (By the way, I’m still using the new cream on my left eye and the original snail cream on my right, and my feelings remain the same.)
Thank you all for bearing with me through quiet periods and outside projects and book editing delays. I appreciate all of you! And I can promise very exciting developments in 2020…more on that to come when the time is right!
