Face Mist Empties (espoir, CNP, boH, O’Lysee)

Face mists are something I rely on year-round. Wake up feeling a bit dry? Mist. Working out and feeling a tad sweaty? Mist. Air con on in summer everywhere you go? Mist. Heating on in winter? Mist. If mists are your jam, see some more mist reviews here: Review: Face Mist Empties, Winter 2020 editionToners and … Continue reading Face Mist Empties (espoir, CNP, boH, O’Lysee)

Best of Beauty 2021

This year, I barely wore any makeup save for some eye makeup every now and then, though I really miss wearing a full face.

I'm pretty sure I already asked the question earlier this year, but I feel as though it is time to check in again. Has Corona changed the way you do make-up? Is it the same as before? Do you wear less, do you wear more? Do leave your thoughts in the comments. Last time I … Continue reading Base Make-Up Empties | Is Corona Changing the way I do Make-Up?

Review – isoi Blemish Care Serum II | Does this top selling serum deserve its top spot?

isoi (pronounced like eye-so-eye) is a brand that I have reviewed before.

Treatment Toners aka Fancy Water Empties (Dr Jart+, Isntree, Son and Park, Some by Mi, Normal No More, Avene)

I go through toners like water (which is what they're made of, mostly - punny - are you rolling your eyes yet??), hence the extensive collection of toner empties for this post.

To this day, I use weekly and repurchase their Brightening Sheet Mask (orange packaging - if you need brighter skin, that one is unbeatable) … Continue reading Review: Dr Jart+ Cicapair Line (Serum, Mist, Mask, Sunscreen)

Quick Brand Overview: Dr Jart+ | Vital Hydra Solution (essence, sheet mask, moisturiser, gel moisturiser, sleeping pack)

Last year, Olive Young was having frequent sales, like pretty much any brand that is considered 'non-essential', I guess. Especially when it comes to more premium-priced brands like Dr Jart+, I am guessing that consumers are more sensitive to pricing nowadays. In a way, it's good for consumers I guess. We get to try more … Continue reading Quick Brand Overview: Dr Jart+ | Vital Hydra Solution (essence, sheet mask, moisturiser, gel moisturiser, sleeping pack)

Colour Makeup Empties plus Decluttering – Lipsticks, mascaras, eyeliners, eyeshadows, highlighters, eyebrow fixers and pencils!

We moved house in the middle of last year so as to be closer to the hubby's work. In preparation for this, I ended up chucking endless amounts of clothes, kitchenware, skincare, and of course makeup. We are only two people living in a studio, we don't collect things of any kind, I in fact … Continue reading Colour Makeup Empties plus Decluttering – Lipsticks, mascaras, eyeliners, eyeshadows, highlighters, eyebrow fixers and pencils!
