Milk Cleansing - The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Milk

korean beauty review the face shop rice water cleansing milk
It's a super sad day when your skin decided that it no longer loves your cleansing routine. It was probably a combination of things that led to a pretty frustrating break-out around March - I had just moved countries, and I probably should've been a little more proactive reading use-by dates - but I was left in a situation where my trusty oil cleanser from The Face Shop just wasn't doing anything but hurting my skin - and my first rule of skincare is: always listen to your skin.

There are a wealth of different cleanser types in South Korea. The vast majority are ridiculously affordable and also ridiculously effective. There are cleansing oils, foams, washes, gels, balms, and now milks. And, being a girl that likes to try new things, I decided to dive wholeheartedly into the very last on that list, with The Face Shop's Rice Water Bright Cleansing Milk.

Gingham, bows, and body confidence

There's something about gingham that immediately makes me think of summer. It's the same sort of thing that makes me associate tartan with autumn and winter, which means that somewhere down the line I've bought into a very effective marketing strategy aligning my checked pieces to one particular season. Historically it's probably something to do with fabric weight...

But before I start tangent-ing about what was used in different parts of fashion history, let me show you one of my favourite new additions to my wardrobe. The gingham top of dreams.

A little whimsy

I haven't done a proper ~fashion haul~ post since I've come back to Korea. I've done various beauty hauls, but fashion is so much harder to do right now. Maybe because I'm minorly (chronically) lazy, and I don't have the Good Tripod with me, the one that actually supports the weight of the canon, but also because it's not exactly the easiest thing to ask your fellow teachers to take shots... and all the photographer friends I know don't live in my city - they're Seoul proper.


Seriously, it's a lot easier to be a consistent fashion blogger if you have someone super close (and decent at photography) to take shots for you. Oh well.
