Sorry I've been a bit slack with my blog posts lately (I will make it up to you). But perhaps not with this blog post. This blog post is odd, I admit it. Or is it? Is it odd to write a letter to a beauty product? Probably, but then again, why not :)
Talk more soon, but for now enjoy my crazy-lady letter to a skincare product!
Dear COSRX Galactomyces Alcohol-free Toner,
I haven't picked an especially sexy photo of you. But you're not especially sexy-looking. I admit it freely, I love gorgeous packaging (cute, pretty, modern - I love anything that looks good). But you are a great reminder that it's what's inside that counts.
I know that so many COSRX products - rightly - get a lot of love. I love the snail mucin essence as much as the next girl. I am a honey overnight mask convert. The acne patches rock. But no one talks about you very much. AND I WANT TO KNOW WHY.
I have to say, when I started using you, it felt a wee bit like using not much at all. However. I am now onto my third bottle of you and you last a long time, even though I pretty much douse myself in your secret sauce twice day. You are deceptive. In fact, I'm coming to the conclusion that you just might be the secret weapon that really fixed my breakouts (I suspect alongside my cleansing routine and sheet masks).
See, I miss you when you're away. My skin misses you like crazy. What I've noticed over my last two jaunts away - when I didn't take you because you aren't carry-on baggage friendly - is my skin broke out again. No, it's not the most scientific study. But outcomes is outcomes and it turns out I need you.
I bring this up because I have found another toner that I love (more to come on that soon). I've been testing it and I do love it. But I want you to know I'll be using it in addition, not instead, of you. Because you are quite frankly irreplaceable (at least so far).
Also thanks. You are awesome, even if no one else tells you nearly often enough.
PS I've tried SKII numerous times, I think you are nicer than her. Not to mention oodles cheaper, meaning I get to douse myself with you to my heart's content.
PPS Can you have a word to your makers and get you made in a travel friendly mini please?
