A Breath of Fresh Air for My Spring Skincare

The only time I’ve really thought of parsley is when I see a sprig perched on top of my pasta at a restaurant, or as the ingredient that I sheepishly skim over in a Martha Stewart recipe that I’m trying to ‘lazy-hack’. Parsley tends to be the foot note of the herb world but recently it’s…

Product Review: Yuripibu Cucu Black Truffle Cream

When a skincare brand’s name translates into “Glass Skin,” you’re setting the bar pretty high. Glass as in transparent, clear, reflective? All adjectives I want used for my skin.

It’s no longer good enough to be a primer; now you have…

Introducing… #ButSkinFirst

We spend a lot of time thinking about how to help people make sense of Korean beauty. From all the different steps and products names to the unique textures, the K-beauty world can be difficult to navigate. That’s where our new video series #ButSkinFirst comes in. There is this preconception that K-beauty is overwhelmingly complex, or…

Get Strobing With Your Skincare

There have been some seriously wacky beauty trends in the past couple decades. Orange faux tans? A bad look. Overplucked eyebrows? Many still rue the day. And don’t get me started on lining the lips with black liner. More recently, there’s been contouring — that Kim Kardashian mainstay of shading and highlighting to create more…
