Review: Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Invigorating Sleeping Mask

I'm upset. I'm upset to have fallen in love with a product. I haven't been this upset since the last time I fell in love with a lavishly priced Sulwhasoo mask, the Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask, and that was back in 2017. The only reason I'm not more upset right now is that while [...]

A Good Low pH Cleanser Isn’t Hard to Find (Anymore)

A Good Low pH Cleanser Isn’t Hard to Find (Anymore)

It's funny thinking about it now, but I actually didn't get into skincare at all until I was 33. Before then, I typically washed my face with whatever decently priced and usually scrubby facial cleanser was on sale at the drugstore. I thought the dry, tight, desperate-for-moisturizer feeling I got after every wash meant my [...]

Review: Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Mask (plus Special Event Masking Tips)

My latest delivery from Sulwhasoo US caused me extreme mixed emotions. The 20th anniversary limited edition First Care Activating Serum EX made me feel like my son last Christmas when his cool uncle got him the Cozmo. The newly launched First Care Activating Masks, on the other hand, gave me a shiver of mingled excitement and [...]

Reviews: Sulwhasoo Age-Veil UV Protection Cream and Perfecting Cushion Intense

Today I unboxed and arm swatched eleven different sunscreens. Summer is coming to my part of the world, and my part of the world gets serious sun. That means it's time to get even more serious about sunscreen than before. I've been getting tired of my usual sunscreens, so I thought I lucked out when Sulwhasoo US included [...]
