Moving on from Winter

Happy Monday! Hope you are all having a great start to the week!

As we approach the warmer temperature of Spring we start to replace our Fall/Winter wardrobe with our Spring/Summer and with that we cannot neglect our skincare.

Toronto seems to be hitting it’s 10 plus degree weather and with that it is time to replace my Winter care that has kept my skin hydrated through the last 5 months.

And now two products that will be going into storage...

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Deep Cream 75mL $15.08 USD on & $14.30 USD on

This has definitely served it’s purpose by keeping my skin hydrated through the long cold 5 months as my skin tends to get very dry. Particulary around my forehead and cheek zones. Not only does it keep my skin hydrated it works great under my top 3 cushions (check out my Cushion Obsession post: Pony Effect, Moonshot Microfit and Iope Air).

I do find that adding an extra layer of moisturizer causes some of the cushion formula to slide without it sticking, or even creasing around certain areas. Although with this product I don’t find that it creases or slides, but in a way it acts like a primer giving me a nice dewy finish. On days that I do have a little more time for my skincare and makeup routine I would allow the product to sit for about 5-8 minutes for full absorption before any makeup application.

The benefit I found using this deep cream is that even at the end of the day after removing my makeup I found my skin feeling soft, firm and hydrated without any moisture being stripped away. Rating: 10/10

You can find this product at StyleKorean or Jolse

Dr. Jart Cicapair Cream 50mL $33.64 USD on

I came across this cream while shopping at Dr. Jart+ in Garosugil. On that particular day it was cold and windy so I knew…this is not good, my skin is going to crack!

After our main purchase I actually received this as as small sample and immediately after returning back to the hotel I applied this on my cheeks and forehead…it was an instance relief. And from then I found myself reaching for this and applying only on specific areas that I needed it the most.

The texture isn’t as thick as the Etude House Deep Cream but the formula definitely soothes any irritation to the skin letting my skin calm down and allowing a smoother canvas for makeup application. Rating: 10/10

As you can tell I still have a little less then half the tube to finish but I will definitely be purchasing this full size for the coming Winter of 2017.

As for this product I was only able to find this product on StyleKorean


I’ve been loving these two products. I like that I can use these products during the day or even incorporating this into my evening routine. They both serve there purpose in the way that I would use them. Price isn’t too crazy especially for Etude House…that jar is huge.

There are probably a ton more products I could adventure into or that will be new to the market and who knows what i’ll come across in the next few months but as of now these two products have made it onto my list of must-haves!

Hope you guys enjoyed this skincare post! Have a great week =)
