beautiFRIDAY: Dr. Jart + Ceramidin Lipair Tint

Before I start, I just wanted to say thank you to Dee for writing the past few articles for me.  She did an awesome job on both Snack Sunday and BeautiFriday.  I don’t know about you, but she convinced me to pick up a few new items to try out.

I have a confession to make.  I have not been doing my normal skin care routine.  I know, shocking.  Especially since it’s been my routine for many years now.  But sometimes life throws you a curveball, that hits you in the chest and knocks you out.  It was hard to get back to my routine since I neglected it for a couple of weeks, and face was undeniably showing signs of dryness.  As I sat in front of the mirror, trying to figure out where I desperately needed the most attention, I remembered that I was already in the middle of reviewing Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Lipair Tint.

beautiFRIDAY: Dr. Jart + Ceramidin Lipair Tint

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Lipair Tint is very similar to the Ceramidin Lipair.  Except, this one has a nice coral tint.  This specific tint is for dry and chapped lips and the directions say to “apply to lips as often as desired to moisturize and nourish.”  Which is a great concept, because by the time you need to reapply, you touch up your fading lip color.  This Lipair Tint, has no scent or flavor, which is good for those who are sensitive to smells.  I do like the color it produces on my lips, I think it’s a great color all year round.  I do feel that after I apply it repeatedly, it does become brighter.  When I first started using this product, I was unsure if it was working.  It didn’t really soften my lips, but it kept it moisturized.  After using it for a couple of weeks, I did notice a difference.  It feels like my lips were dry, but I think that has to do with the color.  I think what I feel is the color setting.  But my lips were certainly not dry.  After removing the tint, my lips do feel soft and smooth.  Which is nice because winter makes my lips look terrible.


Would I buy this again?

Yes.  But I feel like I would prefer the non-color one.  Only because I had to reapply this product a lot.  Like most chapsticks or lip balms, you have to repeatedly apply all day long.  At some point during the day, my lip shade is a little to bright for my taste.  I feel like this product would be perfect for a day adventure or for spring or summer.  For winter, I like my lips with a little color but not too bright.

Snack Sunday: Wang Korea’s Korean Barley Cracker

Written by Ji | 04 February 2018


On today’s Snack Sunday adventure, I tried out Wang Korea’s Korean Barley Cracker (also known as hardtack).  I’m feeling a bit under the weather, and these crackers were the only thing I could keep down.  But if we are being honest, hardtack is one of my favorite snacks.  Why? I’m not sure, it’s simple to make and doesn’t have a ton of flavor but they are filling and addicting to eat.
These hardtacks hit the spot perfectly.  It had that simple hardtack taste with a light barley flavor.  It had a medium crunch and was easy to chew.  Any snack that doesn’t leave a lingering aftertaste earns extra points in my book.
Would I buy these again?
Yes, I would.  But I would like to try the other brands out there too.  You can’t really mess up hardtack, unless you really try.  But I am curious how other brands might be different from this one.
