Good morning and happy weekend, everyone! Before I get started today, I'd like to thank the many of you who took the time to write something nice to me (including constructive criticism, which I really want to hear as well) about my blog and skincare efforts. It feels really great - almost heavenly - to know that you're finding something here on vklSKIN. This is truly a happy place for me, and your acknowledgment means so much! So --- thank you!!!
Today, I'd like to share with you a cleansing product that I personally use, have gifted to two of my friends, and will be gifting (okay... more like giving away) one to one of you guys (fun details at the end)! When you're lazy, too busy, traveling, or coming home late from a party, SUM:37's Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick works wonders. It is made for all skin types, is hypoallergenic, great for sensitive skin, and comes without parabens, artificial colors, and synthetic preservatives.
The stick is made with real damask rose petals (smells so divine and fresh!), fermented rose flower extracts, and natural fruit extracts to cleanse and give your skin a boost in texture and sebum control. Rose extract is known to help your skin in many ways. First, it helps with premature aging as it is a strong antioxidant and fights free radicals. Second, it improves your skin's elasticity. Third, it helps to even out your skin tone. Who knew, right?
All you have to do is wet your face, use the stick (like a gluestick!) to massage your face in light circles, use your fingers to further cleanse your pores in light circles, and rinse off! The stick even cleans off even the most stubborn makeup! The more you use the stick, the more you will visibly see your complexion improve.
A tip for those who plan on using this stick to remove makeup: If you don't want to get your stick dirtied with makeup, take a knife and slice off the top of the stick thinly. Use that thin slice on your face! You won't get the same massaging effect, but your cleansing stick will be clean!

Innovative, isn't it? I'll get into how competitive the skincare business is in Korea next week, but for now, just know that big name brands that you see in Sephora are looking towards Korean/Asian skincare ingredients/skincare technology and have begun to apply Eastern influences into their products. So, if you're ever looking for anything topical to put on your skin, you can never go wrong with looking towards Asia!
So now for the fun part! I'm giving away one SUM:37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick to one lucky follower! It's seriously easy to enter, and it seriously could be you. I invite you to follow me on Instagram (ID: vklskin) and like the post that announces this new blog entry (it must be the photo of this cleansing stick). That's two items: a follow and a like! Now that's the bare minimum to enter.
If you, in addition to a follow and a like and instead of commenting/questioning as explained below, tag a friend in the comments below the Instagram photo that announces this new blog entry, your chances of winning will be tripled (your name will be entered in the random generator 3x)!
Or, in addition to a follow and a like and instead of tagging a friend, you may also leave a comment/question about skincare for me to answer below the Instagram photo that announces this new blog entry (i.e. let me know if you'd like more giveaways/ask me a question about oily skin, large pores, etc.) if you wish for doubled luck (your name will be entered in the random generator 2x).
If you choose to do all of the above, your name will be entered 4x (follow, like the photo, tag a friend, comment/ask a question).
The entry period begins NOW and will end on Saturday, September 19, 2016 at 10:00 AM PST! One lucky winner will be selected via Random Result! I will then privately ask you to email me your mailing address (that I will never abuse or share with anyone else) so that I can send you your new cleansing stick. I'm only shipping to locations in the USA for this giveaway! Sorry in advance to non-US residents! (But if you express your demand for international shipping, I will surely consider a favorable answer for future giving away fun hehe.)
Toodles, and please join me again next week! I love seeing you here. :) For any brave souls, join my hashtag (#facemaskingtofriday) on Instagram if you want to be a part of the face mask party!
