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)
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.
