January 2017 Empties Report

January 2017 Empties Report

It's a new year, but I still got the same old face, and that face still needs to have things put on it and cleansed off of it on a regular basis, so I've got another batch of empties to show off! There are some classics in here, some new (to me) items, and one [...]

Spring/Summer 2016 Flops and Faves, Part 3: Yet More Hanbang + the Return of the AHA

Previously: Part 1: Classics and New Faves | Part 2: Best and Worst Ginseng Skincare This final installment of my spring/summer 2016 skincare routine update took me a very long time to write because so much has been happening with my life and my skin!

Curology (formerly PocketDerm) Month 1 Update and Mini-Review

Holy crap. I can't believe more than a month has already passed since I received my first shipment of PocketDerm Anti-Aging prescription tretinoin. During that month, I finished off my first prescription, and PocketDerm became Curology, merging the anti-aging and acne offerings into one seamless prescription skincare service. I don't have progress pictures to share just [...]

Adventures in Prescription Medication

Adventures in Prescription Medication

No, not that kind. PocketDerm! Even though I'm really happy with the results of my skincare routine as far as smoothing out some fine lines and preserving what I've got, the uphill battle is getting steeper and steeper as time marches on. To say I wasn't diligent about sunscreen when I was younger would be an understatement as [...]
