Happy New Year —The Lunar Edition

Most of Asia is celebrating Lunar New Year, aka the year of the monkey for 2016. It is a time that you gather with your extended family and offer a deep, ceremonial bow to your elders. In return you might get an envelope stuffed with cash!

If you're looking for a festive way to celebrate stateside, Williams Sonoma offers ridiculously cute and festive Lunar New Year cupcakes—with a nod to the year of the monkey.

In the US, most of the leading actresses and actors would find it a career low to be a spokesperson for consumer goods or services (like car insurance). Not in Korea! Only the most popular stars are brand ambassadors, and appear regularly in mainstream TV commercials.  Check out Honey Lee, the host of Get it Beauty and the former Miss Korea who recently became the official spokesmodel for Neogen. Watch her demonstrate the Neogen Bio Peel Gauze Peeling wine!

Nothing is more mesmerizing than seeing a fast motion sequence of what your skin looks like right before and right after a 30 minute sheet mask session. In this video, you'll clearly see the benefits of adding hydration and brightening essences into your skin. No wonder we're all addicted to sheet masks!
