Soaking Up Kukui Nut Oil + Hawaii LuLuLun Plumeria Face Mask Review

Being from Hawai‘i, I am no stranger to kukui nuts. They are very commonly used in lei-making (though many of the ones sold to tourists, I’m sorry to say, are actually just plastic); I’ve received my fair share of kukui nut leis during special events like graduation and parties. They also make a strangely pleasing clacking sound … More Soaking Up Kukui Nut Oil + Hawaii LuLuLun Plumeria Face Mask Review

Can’t Eat This: Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash-Off Review

Trust me, don’t eat this. It’s clearly food for your skin, not your stomach. I got the Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash-Off for my sister’s birthday a couple of months ago.

She has oily skin like me, so after her own positive review, I wanted to give … More Can’t Eat This: Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash-Off Review

I’ve Committed Argan: About Argan Oil + TonyMoly Floria Nutra Energy Mask Sheet Review

Long title ahoy! As someone who wakes up being mined by the oil industry due to the sheer amount of slick on my face, I don’t really gravitate toward cosmetic oils. However, I recently tried TonyMoly Floria Nutra Energy Mask Sheet with argan oil. And surprisingly, it was all a decent slippery slope from there. (Ooh.

Lily’s Closet: The Return of the d’Orsay Shoes

Ahh, the d’Orsay shoe. Did it ever leave? Was it ever really here? Recently, I needed to replace my daily flats which were beginning to rip at the heel. Like the cheapskate that I am, I found these comfy d’Orsay flats for just under $12 at Payless!
