I’m 6 weeks into Accutane and I’m feeling every last bit of it. Feeling 70 years old, that is, phew. My skin is coming along marvelously with sebaceous filaments pushing out seemingly overnight like quills and deep, heirloom clogs coming to the surface with no more than a whimper before collapsing into a quickly dried husk. The side effects are wild. Dry lips, dry eyes, exhaustion, and a creaky lower back. At present, my thought is that Accutane really is the option of last resort; I’m in good health and my dosage isn’t even that high compared to my weight and I’m laid the fuck out by this drug. I’d give just about anything to be able to rely on OTC Differin for managing my acne.
I spend a lot of time rolling around in bed trying to get comfortable (I’m heading to physical therapy for stretching and massages starting this week, PRAISE), so I insomnia-scroll through the YesStyle app a lot to relax. Mostly I just glaze over and zone out, but a variety pack of Papa Recipe masks caught my eye.
I’m a fan of variety packs for all the same reasons you probably are. By this point, I know that I’m most in love with the original Bombee Papa Recipe masks, but I spent way more than $15 to find that out.
YesStyle has other variety mask sets including:
But the Papa Recipe set is the one I’m most excited about tbh.
After about a million years of going meh at it, I have finally embraced YesStyle for lazy Asian Beauty shopping because 1) it has a functional app that enables mindless scrolling 2) shipping is free over $35, which is pretty awesome given the prices on some stuff 3) they have a very workable membership discount program that involves all sorts of levels and coupons that I put together to get wild deals on stuff I want and 4) it’s possible to buy Korean, Taiwanese, and Japanese products from one store.
My last haul was Country & Stream – Honey UV Water Gel SPF32 PA+++ for body sun protection and HYGGEE – Onestep Facial Essence (Balance) for quenching my Accutane skin — I paid $36.34 for both, including shipping due to a sale, a 3% membership discount, and a coupon. I’m pretty proud of this haul, I feel like I really worked the discounts.^^
YesStyle ships out of Hong Kong, unless I’m mistaken, and some products take awhile to reach the shipping depot. Look for scary notes on product pages like “Usually ships within 21 days” if you products to come fast. I find that YesStyle shipping is pretty quick once the package is dispatched, but handling delays can slow things down quite a bit — I’m just happy to be forewarned. TesterKorea often takes longer to dispatch things with zero warning or communication.
If you’re wanting a lead on fancier masks, check out Sweet Corea’s big sale on 23 Years Old masks, which are really damn nice. Prices don’t include shipping, so be prepared to do some cart calculus, but yeah, this is a bananas sale. For more discounts, check out the products labeled big sale. Sweet Corea, like most kbeauty retailers based in Korea, is closed for a few days for Chuseok, but their handling is shockingly fast when the store is open and processing orders.
In Cute Shit News, The Face Shop made jewel ring tints and of course they’re cute as shit ($6.90 plus shipping at TesterKorea). Are the tints good? Would the rings even fit my pinky finger? I dunno, man, but do we even care? I’ll skip these, but also coo over them bc wow it just looks so juicy.
Ok, back to the ‘tane cave, I hope to be back with more soon!
