Reviews | Tatcha Ritual Discovery Kit

Hellooooo Lovelies~ Hope everyone’s week is off to a beautiful start. I’m super excited to share my impressions on TATCHA’s amazing Ritual Discovery Kit.

Quick 411 on TATCHA:
Tatcha was created by Victoria Tsai after she suffered from acute dermatitis, her goal was to find natural beauty ingredients that would be safe, gentle, yet effective on the skin. She traveled to Kyoto where she met a modern-day geisha who gave her tips/secrets to achieving beautiful skin.

First step is to cleanse the skin without stripping it of it’s natural oils, gently exfoliate daily, and moisturize.

As you guys already know I have oily combination skin with breakouts from time to time. It’s been quite the journey in finding effective products that works well with my skin type. After quite a bit of research and hearing awesome reviews from many Youtube beauty gurus on TATCHA products, I finally took the plunge.

The first thing I noticed upon receiving my package was their attention to detail. My USPS box came within two days of ordering and (unfortunately I’ve thrown this away without taking a photo 😦 ) had a beautifully printed TATCHA sticker along the opening. Every detail counts!

Let’s start off with the Black Sugar Honey Mask Washoff by Skinfood (Find here). First, this product completely surprised me! If you haven’t already heard of them, Skinfood is a Korean cosmetic and skin care line that incorporates natural food ingredients into their products. Their products are very natural, affordable, and smells good enough to eat!

I’ve seen this mask promoted in the window display of Skinfood many times however I never gave it much thought until I received some samples upon purchasing their sheet masks. (Will talk about sheet masks in another review)

Beauty Tips | Skincare Routine

Hey Lovelies~ Happy Wednesday!

Can you believe the week is almost over? Today, I want to share my daily skincare routine with you guys, especially since the weather is getting cold! Time to take care of that skin (all year round’ but especially in the winter!)

Whether you are in your teens, twenties, or thirties it’s extremely important to take care of your skin. TRUST me, start early and your skin will appreciate it later! I used various drugstore toners and moisturizers in my teens and eventually tried different brands while incorporating additional steps to my beauty routine as I moved into my early twenties and mid-twenties.

Taking care of your skin doesn’t always have to be expensive. It’s just the matter of finding the right products that suit your skin type. First you need to determine whether your skin is normal, dry, sensitive, oily, combination oily or mix of these. Remember that your skin can change overtime and it’s important to monitor how your skin reacts whenever you use or try a new product.
