TO MY READERS:
I solemnly swear I will always post honest reviews.
As much as I’d love the thought of being able to blog full-time and make income that way, I actually am in the midst of pursuing a new career. This blog is my hobby, my creative outlet, and I’m just sharing my trials and tribulations in pursuit to clear skin. PR Samples helps me save money, but that’s pretty much it. Otherwise, if I want a product, I will buy it. I’ve been blogging for a few years now and I just wanted to make this clear when you come to my website.

Banish Acne Scars – A local U.S. company that’s on a mission to help acne sufferers clear their skin! I’ve tried most of their products and have seen results. They cater to a specific demographic – those who want minimal, natural ingredients that are meant to improve acne and help heal the aftermath.
REVIEW: Banish Acne Scars Banish Starter Kit
REVIEW: The New Banisher 2.0! | AD
Dokodemo – My favourite site to shop for J-Beauty.
Malezia – Brainchild brand behind F.C. from SimpleSkincareScience who suffered with malassezia folliculitis. When starting my clear skin journey, I learned so much from this blog and I wanted to support the simple, minimal skincare created for those of us suffering from acne!
Malezia 5% Urea Moisturizer and 2.5% Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Gel Review
PIIT28 (By Blogilates) – I personally did the PIIT28 program and saw results within a short time. I really like Blogilates message about becoming strong and healthy in our individual bodies.

RewardStyle – An online platform that’s partnered with many websites (that I also personally shop on) that I can create an affiliate link from.
StyleKorean – An online retailer for affordable and popular KBeauty.
Wishtrend – An online retailer for affordable natural Korean skincare. Multiple products they carry have worked for me so I always go back to them.
YesStyle – They carry KBeauty, JBeauty, clothing and accessories!
How I Review Products & Edit Photos
– Will test for at least 2 weeks
– If it is related to acne will try to document before / afters. Please keep in mind I’m using topical prescriptions to maintain control over acne.
– Try to get any swatches in natural light
– If the photo is too dark, I usually just adjust exposure and lighting to get the most accurate colour of my face or product.
My photos can only be used by me and no one else.
