JOLSE K-Beauty Unboxing & Review #2

Jolse unboxing and review #2. Quick overview of my second order from Jolse with both makeup and skincare items.

Last month I’ve run out of my BB cream (Holika Holika Petite BB Clearing – light blue tube), concealer, and cleanser, so it was pretty much written in the stars for me to place another order on Jolse (first order unboxing here). By the way, you can check out my review of the cleanser Holika Holika Daily Fresh Rice Cleansing Foam after around 8 months of everyday use – truly great product. I felt I could trust Jolse after my first order and hopefully their service won’t let me down in the future because by far it’s my favorite place to get Korean skincare and makeup from. I’m super excited to try out everything I ordered, so let’s start the unboxing!

Reducing Waste: What YOU Can Do In Everyday Life To Help Humanity Drown In Waste A Bit Later

What can you do in everyday life to reduce the amount of waste? Instead of just talking about big changes, we can make a differerence by making the right choice everyday!

“The planet isn’t going anywhere – WE ARE” – George Carlin.
I truly find it fascinating that people passionately discuss the climate change and other issues, while taking no actual stance in their everyday decisions. I find it even more fascinating that some people consider it futile to make any effort at all because their input is miniscule compared to the outrageous externalities produced by large corporations. I am convinced that everyone who cares about the environemnt and our future has to do what they can – however small the change is! I am not advocating radical changes that are costly or difficult to implement. My post is about tiny little things that will let you reduce the amount of waste you produce. One small step for manone giant leap for mankind!

Good Taste 101: How to Acquire Good Taste & How to Refine It. 7 Tips

How to develop good taste? Is good taste teachable? I say ‘yes’ and have 7 practical tips to achieve it

Good taste is ‘notoriously hard to define’ – even The New York Times can’t do it 😊 Now, I can definitely agree that ‘to each their own’ and everyone should ‘live and let live’. At the same time, good taste is an awesome ability and skill to have because its practical benefits in everyday life are hard to overestimate. Good taste can save you a lot of money, make you feel better about yourself, and bring a lot of value to the people around you. One more curious thing about good taste is that, however hard it is to define, you can see it. I’ll show you some examples in the post – you’ll be really surprised! Without further ado, let’s start!

Why Capsule Wardrobe Might Not Work For You (Like It Didn’t For Me)

10 reasons why capsule wardrobe might not work for you like it didn’t for me. Is capsule wardrobe worth it?

I love order and organization as much as anyone else. And I love efficient shopping even more. The worst experience of getting ready is the feeling of looking into your closet with a desparate thought ‘nothing to wear’. Well, it’s not like when we feel that way we actually don’t have any physicaly clothes to put on – we simply don’t feel good about putting them on. Capsule wardrobe felt like it would be an awesome idea for me to address all these issues – but then it wasn’t. As always, I’ll tell you why in form of a coherent short list!

JOLSE K-Beauty Unboxing & Review #1

Jolse K-beauty unboxing and review + all the samples!

As you might know from my previous posts, I’m a big fan of Korean skincare – it just fits my skin, while European and American skincare usually causes irritation (even such brands as Vichy, which is supposed to be extremely suitable for sensitive skin). In Europe it’s often hard to find Korean skincare and makeup at reasonable prices or at all, which is why I usually opt for overseas e-shops, such as iHerb and now Jolse. I have to point out that I’m not affiliated with these companies and just a regular customer sharing my experience.
