    With the recent explosion of obsession over Sunday Riley – It would be great if you did a full brand review on her! Also, comparing it to drunk elephant would be very interesting. Love your videos! So informative 🙂

    Hi Renee!
    Ive had acne for years and your videos sound like it could finally be my way out! ive watched all your videos. I have mainly scars and most of the new acne only comes during my periods. I'm already taking care of my diet. drinking a lot of water.But im confused about what products to get. would you recommend me ZYMOGEN or MANYO FACTORY products? I thought about getting The ZYMOGEN serum and cream. The MANYO serum. and COSRX AHA BHA toner. what do you think? honestly I trust you more than ANY dermatologists now cuz your videos have helped me more than anything else. please respond~ ♥

    thank you
    love from Indonesia! ♥

    The Sulwhasoo has a great shade range! V surprised as, honestly, it's rare to find a Korean make catering to medium/tanned skin tones 🙂

    Have you personally ordered from Jolse.com? If so I was just wondering your opinion on them or if you have any personal recommendation as to which Korean beauty online retailer/ site is the safest and most legitimate? Which is your favourite, most-trusted online seller, in short? ☺

    Woah!! No alcohol in the Tatcha essence?! Okay! Very nice change of pace compared to their usual formula which includes alcohol!
    I gotta say, I'm such a fangirl!! LOL!! Always helpful, upbeat, and super beautiful Renee!!❤️

    Just discovered your channel and I'm loving it!!! Where have you been all my life?!? I just purchased the Tatcha Essence a week ago and I love the product 👍🏽. I use my Son & Park beauty toner after cleansing and then the Tatcha Essence… is that ok or should I reverse it or just drop the toner altogether?
    Thank you!
    I look forward to watching the Ordinary products reviews next!

    Please review Shiseido's Eudermine Revitalising Essence! Apparently it's a skin softener (I was told by the SA at the Shiseido counter) but apparently it has alcohol and fragrance in it. :/

    Your hands are beautiful and bright and there is no "crinkle" to the skin. What do you use to keep them that way?

    Hii I love watching your videos and I have learned so much from you and love your channel! Is it bad to use two types of toners on your skin daily in the morning and night for acne/oily skin? I use Mario Badescu Rose water spray and the Cosrx Bha/aha clarifying treatment toner.

    Hi. What I love about watching your tutorials is I always learn something new about Asian skincare. Which as far as I'm concerned, the product lines are just as good, if not better then most French skincare lines. And that includes, La Mer. So that being said, thx so much for sharing the arrival of Tatcha's skin essence. Since Sk2 is beyond my price point, I've been waiting anxiously for Tatcha to release an essence as well. I'm anxious to give it a go, once I hit bottle of my Missha time revolution essence. One question I do have for you. Are you aware of any essences in the Shiseido or any of the other more budget friendly Japanese lines which are slightly similar to the SK2 that you can recommend as an option? Thx. Have a great day 😀

    Thank you soo much. I think you're very articulate, knowledgeable and convincing. You know what you're talking about and above all you come across very trust worthy. This is my first video of yours and definitely not my last (new subbie) I look forward to many more videos in the future: Body care and Femnine area … lots of love <3 #fighting

    I love watching you for skincare specifically. You really bring very good information in a calming way. I wanted to comment to tell you that I think that I saw you the other day in NYC. You were walking with a man. I saw a glimpse of you while crossing the same crosswalk before I realized it was you. At least I think it was. I wish it wasn't on a crosswalk so I could have gotten a photo with you. Would have been awesome, but I thought it's worth to mention.

    Hey Renee! Have you ever used the Hanaka Oil Cut Glacial Mineral Mud? I have oily skin and this clay mask is genuinely UNREAL !! It can be found at YesStyle but I got mine at oo35mm in Chinatown! I'm wondering why it isn't as popular 🤔

    Hi Renee, I really enjoy your channel, and found you really knowledgeable on skincare. Have you reviewed al the new light treatment gadgets? I'd love to hear your view on them. I bought a Talika light duo a while ago, but keep forgetting to use it .. so don't even know if it works or not 😬

    Hi Renee! Thanks for great products reviews!!! <3 I was wondering (if it's ok to ask) how old are you. (I'm just interesting at what age you should start different actives on your skin, so your age would be like a reference:) Thanks!!

    Hi Renee! Can you please make a beginners asian skin care routine video and or a drugstore/affordable skincare routine video? Everyone is so confusing to me but the way you explain things helps me so much. I also trust you a lot more because you're not sponsored and give honest and thorough reviews!

    I just have to tell you: I just tried a sheet mask with ginseng for the first time, and OMG THE GINSENG SMELL! I finally know what you're talking about when you say you love the smell of ginseng, bc I'm scandinavian and ginseng is not used in my culture. But I totally get it! Love it! :3

    Love your videos! I like to have your reviews on toner and cream for dry skin over 30s. I use Shu Ueruma Tsuya for ages, but recently they don't sell in the UK anymore. Could you recommend Korean brands for toner and cream as good as Tsuya please?! Thanks xx Sylvia
