About Me

I’m a 27 year old woman with combination skin, occasional breakouts, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) from those occasional breakouts. My main skincare goals are preventing acne, evening out my PIH, and blinding people with my glow. I love trying products from all over the world, whether they are Thai snail creams, Japanese sake filtrates, or French pharmacy favorites.

About the Blog

I post longer reviews here, and travel-sized snippets on my Instagram.

My photography has been featured by brands such as Tatcha, Burt’s Bees, and AMOREPACIFIC on marketing channels. I also selectively accept press samples from brands, which have included the ones below. Sponsorships help me test new releases and retain a wider body of knowledge for comparison, and instances when a brand has sent a product for review will always be clearly communicated.

I take all my photos on an iPhone X and edit them using VSCO’s C1 filter. This site is hosted by Blot.


I am not a medical professional, just a regular person who spends too much time on the #skinternet. The fact that I just hashtagged #skinternet suggests that you should not take medical advice from me. Please consult your dermatologist.
