When it comes to DECIEM skincare, I’ve explored a lot of the affordable options from The Ordinary but it took me a while to try out any of their other product lines. To get started, I jumped on one of the Black Friday bundles that they offered, which was this four-piece hydration skincare set from NIOD. It included the Hydration Vaccine, Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate, Survival 0, and Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex. Later on, I added a couple more things from DECIEM to my collection, including the Hylamide Hydra-Density Mist, and I thought it’d make sense to talk about all five of those products at one time.

Summer’s flying by, and I’ve personally been particularly focused on skincare products to help my skin, which has been giving me some trouble. In addition to a good bundle of skincare, I also have some makeup and body products in the mix of monthly empties.

I’m not normally the type to remark on the passage of time, but February went by really quickly for me. I had a major work event, flew around the US a couple of times, and then flew off to Europe for a vacation, which is where I am now! I have a handful of really great products that I finished up this month, including skincare, hand care, and a makeup brush that I’m tossing.

When I was in Taiwan in September, I was excited to visit an Innisfree store and experience their products for the first time. Innisfree is a Korean company with an extensive range of beauty products, particularly skincare, and I have to say that once I started exploring I was a little overwhelmed at the selection. I wanted to just purchase a few fun things to try, one of which was the Green Tea Mineral Mist.

I visited several countries in Asia this summer and have been saving up my purchases to talk about them all together now that I’m back. Asia has some great shopping – the photo above is from Singapore’s Orchard Road, a Vegas-like strip of 27 beautiful shopping malls. I mostly bought skincare because it was my first proper opportunity to try out the Asian brands I hear about every so often on the internet, but there are a few makeup products sprinkled in the mix, as well.
