Hello my dears! It has been a while since I’ve posted here. I admit I got lazy about trying out new things for some time, and I thought if I wasn’t trying new products constantly that Chok Chok wouldn’t be a very interesting blog. I believe in using what works for me, so I don’t feel that I need to change my products every week or month.
That said, I’ve been missing the blog lately, and I’ve also got some things to share with you.
The first is that you can now find my K-beauty advice on The Daily Dot! I’m fortunate to get to do what I love there, and you can watch out for bigger features on cost-effective products that will leave you wondering how you ever spent $95 on a face cream.
Second, Chok Chok has a new URL! I’ve decided to change it to chokchokglow.com, so please update your bookmarks accordingly. I just refer to it as Chok Chok anyway, so it won’t change much for me, but some annoying bug already bought chokchok.com so I needed an extra word (AND that glow is the target of all my skincare ministrations, after all).
On the topic of new loves: I was lucky enough to win a jar of Miss Flower and Mr. Honey cream late last summer, a product I had always wanted to try out but had never gotten around to. I’ve been meh on the topic of cream even since Mizon discontinued my precious Returning Starfish cream (and Fiddy over at 50 Shades of Snail says that the All-in-One cream that looked like its replacement is actually dog poop). Since I’d never found anything I liked as much, I only expected so much out of all the other creams I used.
Then, I smeared Miss Flower and Mr. Honey cream on my face and I heard the song of angels. Not right away, though. The first time what I noticed most was how different it was from any other cream I had used. The consistency is thick and rich, and is better described as a balm than a cream in my opinion. It has a lovely light scent of honey, which I’ve come to find very addictive.
Like everything I talk about with great excitement, it works for me because I am an extremely dry skin type. If you are super oily, this may not be a good cream for you. If winter makes your skin literally hurt, though, this cream is such a winner.
At $41.75 on Amazon with Prime-eligible shipping, it’s a bit pricey, but luckily a little goes a long way. It’s a bit cheaper at Memebox ($39), but it’s worth noting that that price is before shipping, so in the end it’s probably about the same. My second jar is on order as we speak, and I’m not planning to changing it out anytime soon. I’m also testing out the Miss Flower and Mr. Honey Essence Oil, which is quite thick but takes forever to dry on my face so I’m undecided on whether to recommend it or not.
I’m also on the lookout for the best Blackhead-removing product, so I’m about to test a bunch to see. Any recommendations for me? 🙂
