Hi lovely people,
Every year, every now & then, I have been telling myself from now on I will take care of my skin. I am going to be a pampering mommy to my skin… buuuutt that never happened. Like NEVER EVER!
If you read last post on self love you would know how I forget eating, sleeping or even lil things like washing my face when I am sinking deep in work (which happens a lot).

My skincare mostly has been just washing my face, applying moisturizer occasionally and trying my best not to sleep with makeup on my face (but yeah haven’t been good at that either). Being someone with very sensitive skin, you’d expect me to take good care of my skin but it totally has been the opposite in my case.
I still wonder how does my skin bear with my bull$hit. I mean no wonder my skin acted up sometimes but still it wasn’t as bad going by how big of a b*tch I’ve been to it! Though I did struggle with acne, even the hormonal cystic ones which my dermatologist took care of.
Moving on, last year I got bit interested into Korean beauty routines and used to cry my eyeballs out at how flawless skin K-beauty bloggers had! Then I came across a quote –
“expensive products don’t necessarily make skin flawless but consistent efforts do”
And that made me think. Hence, I decided I will be aggressive/passionate in my approach towards having a skincare routine & will consistently follow it! I made task lists, reminders, even set alarms but after a few days I’d fall out of it. Still I didn’t give up, I fail and start over again. And thankfully we are seeing some progress now!
Since your girl is kind of person who will either put in no efforts or will give her 100%, I did a lot of research about ingredients, dug deep & deep, read a lot of skincare blogs/journals. All this information definitely was overwhelming at first, but was also much needed for me to made good educated choices while investing and not blindly spending on skincare products.
And now I would like to share all the information and my personal experiences with you. Hence, from now you will find skincare routines, beauty product reviews on Real Girl Talks! Mind you, reviews shared here will be absolutely honest, no sugarcoated bs will be happening over here. Reviews will only be shared if the products are used for at least 1 month or more. Expect me to keep it real with you all as usual. 😎✌
