Abib Mild Acidic pH sheet mask review (Honey fit) ๐Ÿฏ

Quite often I walk around OliveYoung, one of the biggest drugstore chains in Korea, liking the variety of sheet masks available; but more often than not I don’t appreciate the prices of most items (if you know what I mean).

GRWM ๐ŸŒธ

I’ve never been one to spend a substantial amount of money when it comes to skincare. Argueably, luxury skincare brands aren’t on a whole one hundred percent ‘the best of the best; yet I’m not claiming that all high-end brands lack the ability to better the condition of people’s skin: it depends on a brand…
