Skincare Experience Interview
With Tiffany Marie Peterson

 

Tiffany Marie Peterson is a beauty blogger, freelance writer, and healthcare & social media consultant based in NYC. Her journey into Korean beauty and skincare arose from genuine curiosity and a desperate need to find solutions to fade the acne scars she had accumulated over time due to her health condition, lupus. When she came across one blog on her quest to fade acne scars, she found K-beauty and fell in love with it.

We had an amazing chance to interview Tiffany and she shared her skincare experience and story to us!

Neogen: Would you say your knowledge in beauty & skincare is beginner, intermediate, advanced? 

Tiffany: I'd say my knowledge of beauty & skincare is more advanced than the general consumer, but probably an intermediate level compared to an esthetician. I've been using skincare and beauty since I was a teen. Though it was only when I began using K-beauty that I became hyper aware of ingredients and how they can affect the skin.

 

Neogen: Would you share your current skincare routine with us?

Tiffany: My current skincare routine varies depending on what my face needs that day so I don't use 10-steps every day. I always start with an oil cleanser if wearing makeup/sunscreen. Next is a foam cleanser followed by either a lactic acid toner or more soothing toner depending on how much I need to exfoliate. I usually add nourishing oils to my day/night time moisturizers as well.

  

Neogen: What is your biggest skincare concern?

Tiffany: My biggest skincare concern is hyperpigmentation and managing blackheads in my nose area.

 

Neogen: Do you have a favorite skincare ingredient?

Tiffany: My favorite skincare ingredients are Niacinamide, Licorice root, and Ginseng!

Neogen: Do you use any Neogen products?  Which one have you used, liked and why did you like it?

Tiffany: Yes, I've used several Neogen products!

Neogen Cereal Foam Cleanser: I love love love the scent.. For some reason, it reminds me of a snail cream I used to use when I first started my K-beauty journey. It's a lovely gentle foam cleanser.

Neogen Lemon Bio-peel: I love how smoothly it exfoliates my dead skin cells & the gratifying feeling of seeing the loose skin bits on the peeling pad!!(>.<)

Neogen Green Tea Cleansing Stick: I love using this for my on-the-go K-beauty routine. It's a no-fuss travel cleanser!

 

Neogen: What do you think defines beauty?

Tiffany: I believe attitude and personality are what defines our own beauty. It's what's within that radiates outward. How beautiful are your innermost thoughts?

 

Neogen: What is your career passion and would you share us what you future ambitions (career, personal) are?

Tiffany: I have a strong passion for health advocacy. I aspire to run my own non-profit organization for people living with lupus all across the world. This is just one aspiration I have of many : )

 

Tiffany Marie Peterson is constantly utilizing innovative skills to connect, educate, and empower lupus patients, their caregivers/supporters, as well as the rest of the healthcare community worldwide.

Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask Review by Elaine

Neogen’s innovative thick, plush knit material masks have been the talk of the Kbeauty community since its launch in March 2017. The unique sweater-like, knitted-cotton material has passed the clinical human skin irritation test and proven to be non-irritating even on sensitive skin types.

I’ve received quite a few requests to test out this mask and a poll on my Instagram account showed that the majority of my readers are more curious about this pink cactus variant. I will be testing out the white truffle variant in a separate post.

Neogen Vita Duo Cream Review by The Glam Gamer

I don’t mind multi-step skin care routines. For each step is not only beneficial but a way to relax, pamper my skin and have some much needed me time. However, I won’t complain when skin care can be condensed into a double duty or multi-step product. 

Neogen Vita Duo Cream Joan Day Joan Night, $32, is a collaboration with beauty influencer Joan Kim, a popular YouTube leader in KBeauty, fashion and all things Korean. Cruelty free Neogen is one of her favorite brands so it makes sense that she would collab with them. The Vita Duo Cream comes in a container with 2 separate and generously sized compartments, one for each cream plus a spatula to aid in application. A protective inner plastic seal with each side labeled keeps the product fresh and protected.

Real Cica Micellar Oil & Foam Review by Bambi

I feel like 2018 is a Cica year - all the Cica products that we can see all around the place. This trend seems to be associated with K-beauty but it's not only about Korean brands that started this cult. There's always a reason why something becomes popular so I was positively surprised when I heard that Neogen has decided to make a series based on Centella Asiatica and release the Cica series. Currently, my double cleansing is based on Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil and Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam. How does it look like and why you should give a chance to this due?
