Initial Impression: Etude House Must Have Travel Item Set

I was rummaging around some of my old makeup stash a couple weeks ago and stumbled across this Etude House Must Have Travel Item Set. I was given this by a friend a couple years ago because her aunt received it when she was in South Korea but didn’t want it so she thought I’d like it. I’d since forgotten…

REVIEW: Banila Co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm

In my previous post on lip and eye makeup removers, I mentioned how they weren’t so great for removing face makeup, but in this post I want to talk about what is great for that. The Banila Co.
