Korean Skincare Wishlist
Hello my dear ones,

How are you all doing? I have to say things got rather awry for my at the moment. I moved out of the dorm on Friday which was suuuuch a long progress it took me forever and it was SO hot I was almost dying. After carrying my luggage across campus I was nearly dying out of back pain (remember I had a hermiated disk one year ago? Yeah. I still got problems, especially when I need to carry heavy things :( I have to work out more..) So I decided to not take the 9+ hours night bus to Kyoto but take the Shinkansen instead. However, my motivation dropped as my back pain increased and the friend I wanted to visit isn't even there (thanks for that... love when you can count on people.) and there is heavy taifun action outside. So I decided to cancel Kyoto altogether and go directly to Osaka as it would not be much fun if I am in pain and I didn't really have much motivation to go alone to be honest.

So! That's why I am still here and blogging. I will very very soon set foot on Korea (I am very hopeful now that there is taifun there will not be another one in 2 days *knock on wood*) I am already very excited to go and I am especially excited to buy aaaall the skincare products that I can afford. With that being sad I have a little list in my head with products that I really look forward to try out and I thought why not share with my readers? :)

These are the products I am most excited about at the moment but that may change as soon as I really set foot in Korea and see whatelse they might have :D I wanna try out a Korean skincare routine (you know, the one that has a zillion steps) so that means introducing products slowly so the skin can get used to it. I recently started to use a toner (my very first one at the age of 25; toners are just really not popular in Germany so I never felt the need to..I use the Muji Whitening Toning Water in Light which works pretty good for me.)

First thing I want to get my hands on is an oil cleanser because Koreans are crazy about it and I read that it seems to work overall very good for people who have breakouts so definitely try one; I am most interested in the Black Sugar Oil Cleanser from Skin Food (because I love this brand and it hasn't let me down yet) or one from The Face Shop which I have heard very good things about. Next item to introduce would be a cream/moisturizer because I am running out of mine and just need a new one. I'd then like to try out serums that are SO famous in Korea and essences but that would be later after my skin adjusted to the new products, I am certainly not trying out 6 new things all at once (oh, the waiting will be so hard..)

As for the Mizon AHA toner & serum you see here; I read that these are really good against breakouts so if I can get my hands on those I will definitely try them out; however I'd like to first use up my Muji toner (I bought a small 50ml bottle) up (or maybe, I can use the Muji toner in the morning since it is so incredibly light & mattifying and the other one in the night because AHA & BHA's are exfoliating PM use might be best.)

As you can see I am putting a lot of thought into this as of late and I am educating myself a lot about how to correctly clean/wash your face gently etc because my skin is still not calmed down (although at the moment, with all the moving stress/going to Korea that is no surprise.)

Do you use Korean skincare? Do you have favorites or maybe a favorite brand? If you have recommendations, especially for troubled skin, please let me kow :)

Take care & lots of love,

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
