Korean Skincare


COSRX: Official website COSRX: Bought from     The Ordinary


For a year and a half my skin has decided to trouble me. I have indulged in the world of skincare for oily/combination skin and it has surprised me with how much of a science it is. I am still a rookie when it comes to all this but I will share my journey and what has or hasn’t worked for me.

The newest products I have been trying are these by COSRX, they are a Korean brand which really focus on creating lines for those of us going through a trouble phase with our skin.

If you don’t know anything about Korea, the first thing I will tell you is that when it comes to their skin and their makeup, they do not care less even if it is considered a road shop brand. They carefully make formulas which they know their customers will actually buy and re-buy.

 COSRX has this year really made a name for themselves and have such high quality products that are absolutely affordable.

Once these products are finished, I will create another post with results and more pros or cons that I have found! Please comment if you like further detail or recommend me something!!

I love to sketch out random photographs that I see and sometimes I’ll even create originals.I’ll try to upload these more often as it would give me a break from university~If you would like a sketch feel free to comment!

Hopefully I can improve my skill with colouring in sketches but often the first drafts are the most fun!

Bad ideas

The start

I can’t explain how long I have wanted to share my thoughts and still I make excuse after excuse. This little notebook is perfect , even if it is a bad idea it has it’s place and I think that’s okay. It’s important that we begin with a bad idea and polish it like a diamond in the rough.
