Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing moms out there! Although I have decades of experience being a daughter, I still haven’t mastered the art of finding the right Mother’s Day gift. Other than Sudoku books, it’s hard to find something that she’ll actually like. My mom’s a fan of Korean dramas, so last year, I decided to try sending her some K-beauty products. If she likes Korean dramas, why wouldn’t she like Korean skincare?
At TJ Maxx, you can expect that 100% of the time, you won’t need to pay the full “list price”—unlike Sephora, where you typically expect to shell out whatever is listed as the retail price (though it admittedly has a fabulous return policy). I picked up Jeju:en Hyaluronic Acid Sleeping Mask as part of a recent TJ Maxx skin care haul. I had never heard of this brand, but the packaging looked very sleek and polished, and I thought it was worth a try.
DUFT & DOFT is a Korean beauty company that specializes in fragrances and skin care products. I received a sample of the Stockholm Rose Nourishing Hand Cream as a bonus included in a large CVS.com order, so I got a chance to try out a lotion that I would probably never buy for myself. Here are my honest thoughts on this hand cream, who I think might like this hand cream, and who might not want to invest in this particular hand cream.
