Happy Wednesday! This post is going to be very straight to the point today. We are all busy getting our lives together so I won’t be talking a bunch of nonsense to build up for the point of this post. Which is my 2018 beauty review! Basically, I’m sharing my favorite beauty and skincare products that I tried and used in 2018. Most of these products are great for the current dry winter and harsh winds going on. Let’s get to it!

2018 Beauty Review
My first thought when I got these samples were to question “What even is mugwort?!” To say I was hesitant to try this product is an understatement. However, once I did give it a chance, I fell in love with it. The texture is so cool and soothing! Its formula is a gel substance with mugwort beads mixed in for a gentle exfoliant. The brand I’m From promises 3 things in all their products, Ingredient Transparency, Honest Materials, and No Harmful Additives.
AMBI Fade Cream
Back in 2017, I had a pretty bad breakout, for my standards. It left me with dark spots all over my chin and neck. My mom suggested I try this AMBI fade cream to remove the spots once the acne went away and I now swear by this product. I love it because it has no residue, no weird smell, and it doesn’t break me out even more. Check out my favorite beauty products from 2017 to review of the AMBI fade cream.
Skin Perfecting Lotion
Murad became one of my favorites over time. I received this in one of my FabFitFun boxes and after about 3 weeks of using it, I noticed my face was a lot brighter and my skin tone was evened out. I just ran out of this product but I am planning to get more as soon as possible! It’s a light lotion that I use after cleansing and toning my face during day and night.
BLAQ eye masks
I’ve only tried this product once so far but I’m in love with it. I love most face/eye masks so this was already a win for me but after crying one night and being stressed, I used one set of this mask and within 15 minutes the bags under my eyes were gone and it looked like I just had a facial! I’m saving the rest of these for emergency days where I need to look alive but they are great for weekly use!
Dermal Face sheet masks
This was one of my favorite purchases from Amazon last year, apart from my 50 mm canon lens. As mentioned above, I love face masks and this pack of 16 was definitely a treat. These are all Korean brand masks but they come with English instructions and translations. I love every mask and how moisturized, bright and fresh my face felt after each use. The only masks I didn’t try from this pack was the Snake and Snail essence…I’m not going to try those. If you’ve tried them or similar, let me know because I’m curious lol
