Review: COSRX Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion

Out here in Fiddyland, the long, hard winter (it got down to 41°F one night!) is finally giving way to spring. There's a little more moisture in the air and a little less bite (41°F that one time!!). It's time to reevaluate my routine (again) and consider adding a lighter moisturizer to my skincare wardrobe. Maybe [...]
