Christmas Beauty Haul Part 1 (Ebay & ibuybeauti)

HAPPY CHRISTMAS! 🙂 Hope everyone is enjoying the festive holiday season.

Because my gifts to almost everyone included something related to Korean beauty products and I was excited to share a…

REVIEW: Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream

I never really thought I needed an eye cream until I hit 25 which is generally the age at which anti-aging products can be introduced into your routine as the early signs start to appear. Not that I’m suddenly drastically aging or anything because my skin hasn’t changed from 24, but I’m now more focused on preventative measures for the…

REVIEW: Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream

If you didn’t know, snails are a big big thing in South Korea and have been for the past couple years. When I used to fly, crew would associate going to Seoul as a chance to pick up snail skincare. Of course, many people are still grossed out by the idea of putting snail slime on their face but it…

Initial Impression: Etude House Must Have Travel Item Set

I was rummaging around some of my old makeup stash a couple weeks ago and stumbled across this Etude House Must Have Travel Item Set. I was given this by a friend a couple years ago because her aunt received it when she was in South Korea but didn’t want it so she thought I’d like it. I’d since forgotten…

REVIEW: Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum & Cream

Prior to switching to mainly Korean skincare, I followed the basic Western 3 step routine of cleanser, toner, moisturiser both morning and evening. I would use the exact same products, same routine day in day out no matter what my skin condition or what the season was. Nowadays, I tend to listen and pay more attention to what my skin needs…
