Image is a photo of the baviphat apple ac therapy sleeping pack. It has a cute, red, apple-shaped container and a tiny spoon is pictured next to it. The photo has words added, they read: Should I call you HONEYPOT? SUGARBUNS? KEWPIE? Well, no matter what, you'll still be, the apple of my eye.

 
I bought my Baviphat Apple AC Therapy Sleeping pack during my Imomoko Haul a few months ago, so I’ve had a good amount of time to try it out. “AC” Refers to Acne Control, so that means I would guess that the product is for acne skin, though I’m not 100% sure what it claims to do as I don’t read Korean.
 

I have to say, at first, it was super magic good. It ensmoothened my face, made my skin glow, and smelled magnificent. You guys, this could be one of my favorite smells in history, right up there with campfire, Body Shop mango body butter, and pizza. I think because it’s in a jar, and I was lazy and used my hands, that the product got a little contaminated with germs or something, because I think it started to clog me up more recently. It comes with a tiny and cute little spoon so you don’t have to put your filth-hands in, but my filth-hands went in anyway. Sorry I’m so gross you guys.

Image is a photo of the packaging for the oriental gold bb cream. It is a cylinder shape with a pink bottom half and a gold top half.When I first I learned about BBs I did a lot of research, I read a TON of reviews (both domestic and foreign) and this product kept coming up. I bought it because I wanted to start out with a good quality BB cream rather than randomly experiment, and overall I was glad I did. If you’re new to BB creams, it might be good to start by reading about what they are, as there are no truly analogous western products.
 

Skin79 is a large brand from South Korea, but it’s more popular and well-known in the west in that it’s a big deal here, and not so much in South Korea. Most women outside of Asia try a Skin79 brand for their first BB cream, but most women in BB-popular countries aren’t as into Skin79. It’s not an inferior brand, personally I think the difference in popularity is a matter of marketing because Skin79 spends a lot of time enticing the foreign market. Read more…

Image is an advertisement for My Beauty Diary products. It features a fair-skinned female asian model, and a variety of skincare products. Decorating the scene are delicious-looking pastries covered in fruit. The entire ad is very cute looking.Introducing My Beauty Diary! MBD is a Taiwanese brand that has basically consumed the world of face mask making. They’re so ridiculously popular that people make imitations of them even though they’re $1-$2 a mask. MBD has a lot of formulas and mask products, and have since expanded outside of masks into other skincare. They have products for a veritable cornucopia of uses: whitening, brightening, moisturizing, plumping, vitalizing, toning, anti-aging, and a lot more. MBD recently became available through Wal-mart, and since I haven’t tried the Wal-mart products I can’t be sure they’re the same as the formula sold in Asia. You can also find MBD masks at better prices at Asian retailers (Imomoko, Sasa, eBay, Amazon) but don’t go for prices that are too good! Read more…

Image is a photo of the packaging of the Bihada Sizuku sheet mask. There is an image of an aloe vera plant set upon a black background and the words Sizuku Natural Pulp Essence Face Mask in the center.I love sheet masks. They’re soothing, relaxing, fun, and I feel like a Sheet Princess with one of these on. A lot of them are rather great for improving dumb skin and maintaining good skin, and there are a lot of great ones for low cost. I typically enjoy wearing the moisturizing types and leaving them on while I watch 1-hour-long shows like K-Dramas or Doctor Who. Most packages recommend 20-30 mins but I find that with moisturizing products there’s no harm in keeping them on longer and I just like going to my happy place as I watch a show in Sheet Princess mode.

An image of etude house brand hand cream in a package shaped like a white, black, and pink panda. A peach is pictured on the belly of the animal. It is smiling and very cute. In order to stay on top of things, I read a lot of beauty blogs. I enjoy learning about products, finding the best stuff, and just reading what other people are into. It’s fun to get into other people’s purchases and see what they’re drawn to, and what they actually buy! This is my first “haul” post, and if you’re unfamiliar, the idea is to show you what I got. This isn’t a review, but I plan to review items from this haul (some were really good purchases!).
 
I bought a number of items from Imomoko.com recently during their free US shipping deal (love it!) and I also got a few of my items on sale. Imomoko is a good online dealer for Asian cosmetics and beauty products. Read more…
