Beauty: Sunscreen Again

After the sunscreen controversy, I was left wanting specific products recommended, and apparently other people did too, so Odile Monod produced this video. I’m going to be trying the outdoor ones. I think trying to keep only indoor for winter is just too complicated for me.

And Lab Muffin beauty produced this list of her favorites, I’m not sure how many are K-beauty, but my favorite Biore (actually Japanese I think) is still on there (yes!).

My budget has been tight and so I’ve not made a huge Yesstyle purchase in awhile, but I’m hoping to do so soon.


  1. Speaking of skin care, do have any recommendations for cleansers, toners, moisturizers for combination skin? You’ve probably done a post about it but I have a hard time remembering specific names or anything when I’m not currently searching for things like that.

    1. I like trying various kbeauty lotions, but I also use cerave moisturizer and the cerave cleanser has been my go to for a couple years I think thanks to James Welsh, maybe also another youtuber, I think (for dry skin I think? Even though I’m combo). I’ve tried various oil cleansers but usually go back to Hanskin, the php one I think it is.

      I don’t use normal toners, I think chemical exfoliants and serums are more based on skin needs. I’ve used Paula’s choice salicylic/bha “toner” or solution for my morning treatment. It’s expensive but a bottle lasts a year I think. I’ve got other chemical exfoliants and treatments for night time. I’m still working on using up stuff and repurchasing, plus I always get more info. I need to be careful of too many products.

      I’d watch Michelle from LabMuffin beauty for knowledgeable breakdowns, she has phd in chemistry (specific to beauty I think maybe?).

      Oh, and sunscreen. VERY important. Especially if using chemical exfoliant and retinol (still working on that part).
      I think cleanser (I double cleanse, but only at night), moisturizer, sunscreen, are the basics with vitamin c serum, and maybe a chemical exfoliant and/or retinol to level up. No harsh scrubs or astringent toners like used to pushed when I was growing up. I think James Welsh has a skincare video for basics.
