It's not Sunday yet but it's still #shelfie time. tomorrow I'm getting on a flight to Vietnam to explore Ho Chi Minh City with @jessicrunkzilla! So there may not be many posts coming up over the next few days. I took this picture a few days after my @glossier Black Friday order arrived. My glossier collection is always expanding and there are still some things on my wish list that I haven't picked up yet. In this picture: An old boy brow that's been used so much it looks kinda gross now. Haloscope for that wonderful highlight. Stretch Concealer that's literally magic. Cloud Paints in Haze, Storm and Dusk. Balm dot com in Mint that tastes amazingly minty. A new Boy brow! Generation G in Crush. . #abbloggers #abbeatthealgorithm #shelfiesunday #sharemyshelf #shareyourshelfie #glossier #generationg #cloudpaint #stretchconcealer #boybrow #balmdotcom #glossiershelfie #glossiercollection

Part 2 of the @kantanno Discovery Setto. This is the biggest bottle of toner I've ever seen. I don't think I could ever run out of this. The CocoeggWrinkle Lotion surpassed all my expectations when I first tried it. Sure it isn't revolutionary. It has no actives and it doesn't claim to get rid of all your acne/hyperpigmentation. But it's one of the best hydrating toners I've used. It leaves my skin feeling plump and bouncy. Maybe it's all in my head but I feel like it makes your skin smooth and bouncy like the albumin of a hard-boiled egg 😂. It's a strange comparison but isn't that the smoothest, wobbliest, thing you've seen? . I layer this on after my exfoliating toners such as the pixi glow tonic. It's a brilliant addition to my routine and is unique in how it leaves my skin feeling. A hydrating toner is not a new concept but I don't have any products that are like this in consistency, scent (or rather lack thereof) and none that leave my skin feeling bouncy like this. . You can get the Discovery Setto including 4 products at @kantanno for 25% off with code DISCOVER. *This is not an affiliate code. . PS. Peep the holo @bathandbodyworks Candle? I love it! It's Snow Fall and smells beautiful. . #abbloggers #asianskincare #japaneseskincare #jbeauty #cocoegg #cocoeggwrinklelotion #japaneselotion #bloggerdiaries #shelfie #shelfiesunday #asianskincareroutine #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #beautybloggers #beautysales #productphotography #productshoot

Step 1 of the Discovery Setto from @kantanno is this Okinawa Marine Silt Foaming Cleanser. I had never seen this brand or product before but the gorgeous packaging immediately grabbed my attention. This is the only box I've saved from this set because the artwork is beautiful. Working with Betty from @kantanno to put together this set was a great new experience. She's possibly the nicest person I've ever collaborated with. This cleanser comes with a little foaming net which is a nice addition but I prefer to use my foreo Luna with it. It foams up incredibly well with fluffy, soft bubbles. The best part about this cleanser? It doesn't break me out! I'm hesitant when trying any new cleanser because my skin hates them all. I've had luck with cleansers that contain glycolic acid and lactic acid. And now THIS! It's gentle and yet takes off my makeup on days when I'm too lazy to oil cleanse. I love it! . The discovery setto is now 25% off on the kantanno website with code DISCOVER. . #abbloggers #abcommunity #kantanno #marinesilt #skincareblogger #skincareroutine #bloggerdiaries #japaneseskincare #asianskincare #jbeauty

I'm making #catshelfie happen. If you have a cat and you love shelfies, post a picture of your adorable kitty being nosy around your #skincareshelfie. They won't let you take pictures without interruption and they'll knock over your products just to see the look on your face when you see a beloved product hit the ground. But we love our kittycats all the same! 😸 Who can stay mad at those adorable fluffy faces? . #shelfiesunday #catshelfies #rescuecat #adoptdontshop #skincarecat #catblogger #skincareblogger #abbloggers #abcommunity #sharemyshelf #skincareroutine

The Japanese Skincare Discovery Setto. A curated collection of 4 unique and hydrating products from Japan! I partnered with @kantanno to put together this set of unique products perfect for every season. Use them alone for a basic routine or add them into your routine for a few extra layers of hydration. I use them both ways and love every product in this set. That's also the biggest bottle of toner I've ever seen so I can add as many layers of it as I need without being afraid of it running out. This set is available on the @kantanno website for a discounted price of $75 (compared to $84) and you can use code DISCOVER for 25% off making the set $56.25. The set includes a Marine Silt Foaming Cleanser, Cocoegg Wrinkle lotion (toner), Spa Water Gel with onsen water (gel-cream), Biore UV Aqua Rich Water Essence spf 50+. I'll post reviews of each individual product over the next week. P.S. I am not an affiliate and make no $$ from any purchases on kantanno. This partnership was just an exploration of fun products. . #abbloggers #asianskincare #jbeauty #japaneseskincare #onsenspa #kantanno #skincareblogger #skincareroutine #biore #bioresunscreen #abcommunity #productphotography #productshoot #joinpalm #influencer

Something about the colors in this picture makes me LOVE it. Featured here are: @manyofactory_official galactomyces niacin essence. It's light and nice. I like it. @rawkanvas Jade roller. It comes with rollers on 2 ends and one of them has a texture for massaging your face. I love this! I want them to come out with a similar amethyst roller! @tartecosmetics tartelette toasted. I'm not a huge fan of tarte but I love this palette. I use it all the time but use it more often in the fall. . #fallfavorites #texturetuesday #manyofactorygalactomycesniacin #manyofactory #rawkanvas #jaderoller #naturalskincare #skincareblogger #skincareroutine #tartelettetoasted #productphotography #productshoot

Years ago I tried out a sample of an erborian yuzu lotion that broke me out a ton and I haven't gone back to the brand since. Until this month. I usually refuse to get erborian pr but when I saw the @erborian bamboo Creme frappe, it drew me in. I'm so glad I gave it a chance because I actually love it! The texture is very similar to Youth To The People Kale+Spinach Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Superfood Cream. It's one of my favorite moisturizing creams and I'm happy I found something similar. If you love the YTTP cream, you will probably love this. This cream is currently on sale at @sephora so it's a good time to try it out. I'm tempted to buy a backup for the summer but that's just not necessary so I'm not going to until I actually run out of this jar. Since it's finally colder outside, I've been lighting my favorite fall/winter candle all day everyday. Leaves is back in my life . #abbloggers #erborian #erborianbamboo #bamboocremefrappee #bloggerdiaries #gelcream #skincareblogger #skincarereviews #skincareroutine #fallphotography #fallskincare #shelfie #shelfiesunday #oribe #pureheals #imfrom #wishtrend #sharemyshelf

I posted a full review of these products from @herbaldynamicsbeauty on my blog with details on texture, scent, ingredients and experience. It's right in time for their Black Friday sale with is 25% off your order. I'm buying backups of the Chamomile & Macadamia Body Wash and I would highly recommend it. The packaging is annoying but the product more than makes up for it. . #abbloggers #herbaldynamics #herbalskincare #naturalskincare #organicskincare #greenbeauty #skincareblogger #skincareroutine

Happy Thanksgiving! I think I love Thanksgiving because of the anticipation of Black Friday. Not afraid to say I'm definitely caught in the consumerism trap that is the holiday season no matter how much I try not to. So here's a #holidayshelfie for you. P.S. featured here is the @erborian_usa bamboo Creme frappe which is amazing. I plan on posting a review soon but since there are sales going on right now, you might want to pick it up. If you like the youth to the people kale cream, you will LOVE this. . #abbloggers #shelfie #shelfiesunday #erborian #leavescandle #fallskincare #winterskincare #sharemyshelf

@manyofactory_official Galactomyces essence with niacin. An essence that has been buzzer about and reviewed countless times on Instagram. So my review is probably unnecessary but I'm going to do it anyway. It's a product I've wanted for years and I finally got to try it through a campaign on @0.8l_usa The bottle was bigger than I expected. Not huge but still quite a substantial size for an essence. It's a really light liquid with only a tiny bit more viscosity than water. Really hard to photograph for texture shots since it's clear and just spreads around over the surface. However, I think it's an effective essence. I've been using it mostly at night but sometimes during the day as well. My skin feels hydrated immediately after application and over the past two weeks I think my hyperpigmentation spots are getting lighter too. Of course just an essence can't do all the work so I am using the rest of my usual products but I think the essence is speeding up the process a little. It isn't an essential step for brightening but I think it's an essential layer for the winter. I like layers of moisture to keep me going through the days full of cold, dry air and this is the perfect first layer after toner and before all the layers of serums and creams. Overall, it meets my expectations and I'm pretty happy with it. . #abbloggers #manyofactory #galactomyces #galactomycesessence #niacin #manyofactorygalactomycesniacin #08liter #08l #review #skincareblogger #skincareroutine #productphotography #productshoot #fallphotography #kbeauty #galactomycesniacin #amazon #instabeauty #beauty

It's @wishtrend #textureweek! It's their event to celebrate their upcoming black Friday sale. They sent me this @imfrom_global Ginseng Mask to review and talk about as a way to remind everyone about their Black Friday 2018 sale so I'm going to talk about the product first and then their sale so skip to the bottom of this post if you're only interested in the discounts. This mask has a texture that's very similar to honey. In fact it kinda tastes like ginseng flavored honey. It's really sticky (stickier than I would have liked) and a little greasy when first applied but it washes off without leaving any residue so I'm okay with it. It's the perfect mask to use after a clay mask. Clay masks can usually dry the skin out and this is super hydrating. Great mask for anyone who loves ginseng in their skincare. Also, apparently cats get really curious about this product when they see you playing with the texture 😂 Wishtrend's upcoming sale is the time to stock up on your faves and products you've wanted to try. They have up to 80% off products, free expedited shipping, free mini & sheet masks as well as additional discounts. The #wishtrendbfsale will be live Nov 19th-25th and will include products from #klairs #junglebotanics #imfrom #bywishtrend and others. Honestly though, I'm actually excited for it. I hope the midnight blue cream is on sale and the magnolia essence. . #wishtrend #wishtrendstory #texturetuesday #abbloggers #kbeauty #blackfridaydeals #blackfridaysales #beautysales #asianskincare #productphotography #kbeautyreviews #videoreview

I was going to post this as a "guess the product" type post but I need people to know about this pretty gel face mask. This is the Canvas resurfacing mask from @rawkanvas which is my new go-to exfoliating mask. I've been obsessed with the Blue Tansy mask from @herbivorebotanicals for years and this one has exactly the same effects. It isn't really a dupe since they cost about the same but I think this one smells better. It's strange how similar the two brands are and I honestly love them both. Both brands recently came out with a hemp infused face oil. Considering formulation takes forever, I think it's impossible that one copied the other. It's funny to see two brands that I like so much come out with such similar concepts at the same time. I still want to buy and try both so I can compare them. Have you tried either brands yet? . #abbloggers #herbivorebotanicals #rawkanvas #texturetuesday #productphotography #productshoot #bloggerstyle #skincareroutine #skincareblogger

It's my favorite day of the week! #texturetuesday is here and texture shots are my new hobby. It's fascinating to draw attention to these tiny details in products.

I've been really excited about trying to find products that are new to me. To not follow the hype around a product and save up for it for a long time only to be disappointed by it - not because the product itself is bad but rather because I hyped it up in my head after seeing a million posts about it. So instead I went looking for brands that not a lot of people on my feed were talking about. Products that we're recommended by less than 2 people in my feed and we're affordable so other could try them out once I had posted about them. This search led me to @herbaldynamicsbeauty. They happened to be running a review event when I came across them so I applied and got to pick 3 products from their website. Here are 2 of the 3: Cacao & Chamomile Clearing Clay Mask Mango & Green Tea Firming Eye Mask I picked the first because who doesn't want chocolate in their masks and because I'm always on the hunt for a good clearing mask to deal with acne. I picked the latter because I've never heard of a wash off mask for the eyes. Most of them are gels that you can usually leave on or undereye patches. It's new and fun and hopefully it fixes my tired eyes. .

The @hourglasscosmetics ambient lighting blush is exactly what I hoped it would be. Besides looking pretty in the pan, it also adds a beautiful flush to the cheeks. As someone with kinda tan skin, baked blushes don't always show up with the same pigmentation as they do on lighter skin tones but this builds up easily and looks wonderful. There is some really fine glitter/shimmer that make this blush look glowy but they don't look chunky. . I 100% would recommend this mini size too since it's more affordable than the full size and you're more likely to use it all up and get your money's worth out of it. It looks beautiful and it worth at least testing out in a Sephora near you. . #abblogger #hourglassambientlighting #hourglass #hourglassblush #motd #bloggerdiaries #makeupblogger #makeupreview #productphotography #productphotographer #producttexture

About a month ago I was finally able to get one of the $100 gift card rewards with my Sephora points. They almost always run out within a few minutes but this time I was there in time. One of the things I purchased with it is the @hourglasscosmetics ambient lighting blush mini. I fell in love with the ambient lighting bronzer that @smoresandpores sent me (the bottom, full size product) and wanted to get the unlocked edit released for the holidays but realistically, I would never be able to get through that much product. I've been trying to buy minis for most products because I will actually be able to use it all. Do you find yourself doing something similar? Or do you usually hit pan on your full size products? . #abblogger #abbeatthealgorithm #hourglass #hourglassambientlighting #makeupblogger #makeupreview #motd #blushreview #blushcollection
