Hi everyone! With the new year, we want to continue to make some changes to the site. Firstly, we'd like to make a new banner! Artists who are interested in contributing, please get in touch with me with some samples of your work. Thanks so much!
Just a week ago I added AHA serum to my Korean skin care routine and it made all the difference. That AHA is a holy grail for me. I always struggled with pimples and very flaky, bumpy skin and while double cleansing did help, the flakiness came back quickly and I didn't like all the friction on my face while rubbing the oil in. AHA every morning and night dramatically helped brighten my skin and made it and kept it smooth and bump-less because it easily rid all that old skin. My skin is no longer flaky and because of that, it's much harder for pimples to form. It's much less harsh on my skin because it's a chemical exfoliate, I just need to glide it on my skin and neck and let it dry. No rubbing and scrubbing.
It's completely fine. It's just fashion, it can be universal but not always accepting in differing societies especially with Asian male fashion being done in the West. If people enjoy following J and K-fashion and are greatly influenced through it, what's the problem? I would be pleased if I had a Western friend that was interested in Asian fashion, it would give us lots to talk about and would give me differing perspectives because of my Western friend's differences in facial structure, build, and hair. People in Asia follow Western trends as well. The only problem arises if the person wants to be a different ethnicity.
In my experience it really does. It's best to use it at night or when you have to go out. It absorbs all the gunk out of the blemish slowly. It can also remove the head of the blemish very safely. I highly recommend it since it speeds up healing from the absorption of gunk and protects from the elements which would further irritate the blemish and risk of scarring. Some blemishes would only need one patch and it's healed, and some need more nights.
I agree with using Cosrx products. Their pimple patches would work very nicely as well if you get any inflammation since it acts as a barrier so you can't pick at it and protects it from bacteria and accidental trauma (like your nail hitting your blemish) while slowly sucking out all the oils and impurities that make a blemish. They would work on the wens, but you have to use the patches multiple times since they're deeply rooted.
Thanks a lot for the clarification. I would love her to do a good Q&A video, if more people knew she were Hmong that'd bring a lot of positive representation and such, IMO. Plus her fans could feel more close to her. She could teach us the differences between Hmongs and Chinese, to end some confusion (like with me).
Yeah, she did move to America around 10 years old. But she lives in America and is a citizen, she can say she's from America if she wants but is born in the Philippines.. I don't see any problem. My immigrant parents do that.
Oh yes, I use the Snail Line! For the snail cream itself, it's a very good moisturizer (jelly like) and helpful for sensitive and irritated skin. It's very gentle (in my experience) and I use it especially when my face is inflamed. Though, it has a strong fragrance, a little floral like. I also use the Super Aqua Waterfull Cream, it's amazing for the winter time. It's a thick facial moisturizer that locks in moisture and keeps dryness at bay pretty well. Not oily or sticky at all.
I agree, in the gaming community nostalgia has been a huge factor in people having really bad expectations and hatred for some long running video games. Final Fantasy has been one of the worst culprits for nostalgia...and so many can't enjoy Final Fantasy XV because it can't deliver those nostalgic feelings they've had from the older entries when they played it during their childhood. So, they can't comprehend the changes and direction the video game is taking so they just go and hate it because of nostalgia from their old turn based Final Fantasy games. Instead, they turn to the Persona series which has been playing it safe for nearly a decade... they use the same anime story formula of a band of misfit high school teenagers saving the world with their newfound powers stemming from their inner struggles. The gameplay is the same too, turn based and visual novel style only adding a few tweaks and improvements each entry and people love it despite just being a reskin of older games. Compare that to Final Fantasy XV which took amazing risks by being the first Final Fantasy AAA open world action role-playing game, and that gets a lot of hate from how drastically it strayed from the past. Without this risk and change, Final Fantasy would have died. There needs to be some PSA on this in the future, as silly as it sounds. Or, at least within the industry to encourage people to take those huge leaps and risks once again. But, nostalgia in some cases isn't harmful. Like today, my mom found and bought some really old cookies from my childhood and I had a nice feeling when I looked at it, and then especially when I smelled it. It set me up for a good mood the rest of the day. Doesn't mean I'm going to hate on every new cookie and become sour.
In my experience Koreaboos were worse. They were more outgoing and loud than the weeaboos who would rather sit in their own circles and obsess over their thing. The weeaboos I've came across kept it within their own clubs while the Koreaboos tried to get interest from the Korean foreigner students who came to finish their education in America. One of my underclassmen in high school shrieked "OPPAAA!" so loudly in the early morning before school started once... she was yelling to the really shy Korean boy who was in my calculus class. Even if they were friends, it was so embarrassing to hear. The fandoms within all the drama shows and K-pop is horrendous too, nearly every comment is immature bashing, childish remarks, or blind fanboyism. I rarely saw a mature, thought out comment... and since the fandom always has to do with real people obsessions become too much, and beauty standards become too high. Idols can't even date sometimes because the idiotic netizens will tear them apart... I feel bad for generalizing but what I noticed in high school the level-headed normal K-pop fans and stuff were all in the advanced classes and the annoying obsessive Koreaboos weren't, lol. So, study hard so such an obsession won't consume you.
I use MISSHA's Time Revolution Ampoule. It's the cheaper version of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, but it works just as well. My mom and I have been using it for a long time. It's quite sticky at first but then smooths out well, if you don't mind. It helps lock in moisture and prep for further skincare products. It also helps take care of dark acne scars a little faster and helps my face stay supple. http://www.misshaus.com/time-revolution-night-repair-new-science-activator-ampoule-50ml.html You can judge for yourself here~
Ahh the ever growing mystery of "Ouji", to be honest that's the only real interesting thing left about Berry since that's still very cloudy and her overall presence is slowly dampening. Where the hell is the real Ouji and what exactly happened between them because it's blatantly obvious the "Ouji" accounts are sock puppets? It was suggested that Ouji was an industrial engineering student years back, so what I believe is that initially he did throw away all of his e-fame for Berry but things went awry between them and he just decided to get on with his life since engineering is no joke. So, Berry can still access his accounts and does dumb shit with them to pretend they are still together but he has a life than to care about what his crazy ex does. I'm not going to believe they are together still unless she posts an actual up-to-date Skype session with him. No old dead MSN stuff. I don't care if she shoops herself as usual in the Skype video or minimizes her webcam window to the smallest and hides half her self under the blanket, as long as the real 2016 Ouji is right there Skyping in Indonesia without his damn hand covering his face. If she posts severely perverted conversations with her "relationship" with "him", why can't she post a simple picture and not use "privacy" as an excuse? She loves attention so showing them together would bring tons... it's just so shady. I'm re-reading that comic... and you're mostly right. A lot of it is just cliched shojo comedic fluff and probably what she wishes what would have been if they were really together. Feels kinda sad when you think about it.
