Review – REN ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser

REN’s  ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser was another product I bought solely due to the reason that Caroline Hirons recommended it (I know.. I’m easily influenced by her!). At that time, I wasn’t even looking for a new cleanser since I already have so many in my stash. I was actually buying other products and since I was still some amount away from free … Read More Review – REN ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser

Thoughts on Korean Drama – Queen of the Ring

Review – PIXI Glow Peel Pads

I bought the PIXI Glow Peel Pads about a few months ago because I was curious about how it compares to the relatively more famous PIXI Glow Tonic. Instead of being in a liquid toner form, this product comes in pre-soaked pads that you can just wipe all over your face. However, you’ll need to note that this is a rinse off product unlike … Read More Review – PIXI Glow Peel Pads
