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)

Some by Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner | It really is a ๐ŸŸข Miracle Product ๐ŸŸข

I have included this toner in my 2020 favourites, in a toner empties post, and have mentioned it in the comments section on my own blog as well as others' blogs. This has been in heavy rotation since 2019 and for someone as fickle as me, who likes to switch up her skincare routine and … Continue reading Some by Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner | It really is a ๐ŸŸข Miracle Product ๐ŸŸข

Review: Xemose – Syndet Nettoyant Doux [Gentle Cleansing Syndet] | A Sensitive Skin Hero

Not entirely sure how I've done it but somehow I've managed to not talk about the one face cleanser that I have used and repurchased the most since 2019! While I have tried a few other cleansers on the way... I have kept coming back to this cleanser, and this cleanser alone. That's how good … Continue reading Review: Xemose – Syndet Nettoyant Doux [Gentle Cleansing Syndet] | A Sensitive Skin Hero

Review: Silcot Cotton Pads (Uru Uru, Hukitori, Uru Uru Organic Cotton) ๐Ÿ’ฎ

When I first started getting into skincare following the onset of moderate to severe adult acne in my early 20s, I heard some people talk about the importance of cotton pads in your routine. I scoffed at the absurdity of elevating cotton pads, of all things, as something to Actually Give Serious Thought to. How … Continue reading Review: Silcot Cotton Pads (Uru Uru, Hukitori, Uru Uru Organic Cotton) ๐Ÿ’ฎ

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. I also used to buy and even repurchase their Blemish Care Serum again and again in my twenties as I felt that it helped improve my adult acne at the time. Recently, I repurchased it again after not having used it for several … Continue reading Review – isoi Blemish Care Serum II | Does this top selling serum deserve its top spot?

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)

Sleeping Pack and Wash Off Mask Empties (2020 Edition)

There are very few wash off or sleeping packs / overnight mask packs that capture my attention and my wallet. I'm from Honey (reviewed here) as well as Cell Fusion C's gimmicky yet effective bubble mask sachets (reviewed here) were outliers. None of today's masks bowled me over, though they were... nice, for the most … Continue reading Sleeping Pack and Wash Off Mask Empties (2020 Edition)

If you have been following Korean beauty and skincare for a while, you may have heard of Make Pr:em's much-celebrated foam cleanser. Everyone and their mother has blogged about this bad boy, and now it is my turn, some 3,000 years after everyone else has reviewed it. Haha!

Korean Perspective: Skin pH

Source: Beauty+ Korea Some time last year, at the gym, I found this beauty magazine called Beauty+ that was just lying around (I stopped buying glossies when I was perhaps 14) and members of the gym were free to take home a copy. One of the articles was titled 'Is my skin [at pH] 5.5?' … Continue reading Korean Perspective: Skin pH
