Mask Empties (Laneige, Skinfood, I’m from, Some by Mi, Lindsay, Hatherine)

Here's a fun fact: I use face masks every. single. day. It may be a sheet mask, a [bubbly] clay mask, an overnight sleeping pack, a treatment wash-off mask or a toner pad mask, but one thing is for sure: That little luxury is what gets me through the day, both as a self-care moment … Continue reading Mask Empties (Laneige, Skinfood, I’m from, Some by Mi, Lindsay, Hatherine)

What it feels like to reach your skincare goals

Image source I guess we all have our insecurities and things we wish we could change about ourselves, our bodies. Me, growing up, I found myself battling acne in various manifestations (hormonal and lifestyle-related, varying in intensity) from my mid-teens all the way up until my early thirties - so, pretty much up to the … Continue reading What it feels like to reach your skincare goals

Too Cool for School is Stealing Charlotte Tilbury’s Designs – AGAIN [allegedly]

Quite a few years ago, I posted about how Too Cool for School (TCFS), a Korean indie makeup and skincare brand, had taken more than just a leaf out of Charlotte Tilbury's (CT) design when they ~allegedly~ stole CT's designs for their own cushions. While there was some backlash online, clearly TCFS did not give … Continue reading Too Cool for School is Stealing Charlotte Tilbury’s Designs – AGAIN [allegedly]

Review | First gifted product on the blog, ever! Vegreen – Vegan Fragrance-Free Nature Mucin Serum

Back in December, I was contacted by Vegreen, asking if I'd be up for a product review. And I most certainly was!

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. Alas, as long as the mask mandates stay in place, I do not see myself going back to my pre-pandemic pancake face, but if you're interested in which BB cream I … Continue reading Best of Beauty 2021

Base Make-Up Empties | Is Corona Changing the way I do Make-Up?

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: Cleansing Milk Smackdown | Acne Struggles

Background A year and a half ago, I'd hit another low, skin-wise, and I had to visit the derm again for yet another round of extractions and antibiotics. I just hate the fact that I am living proof that adult acne does not seem to have an expiry date, no matter how careful you think … Continue reading Review: Cleansing Milk Smackdown | Acne Struggles
