Skinfood Everyday Facial Mask Sheet – Tomato

I love pampering my face with a nice sheet mask and I’ve enjoyed many good ones over the past few months that I’ve been using them. Some better than others for different reasons, but overall, I’ve liked the results they’ve given. I haven’t yet had one that I’ve truly disliked. Enter the Skinfood Everyday Facial Mask Sheet in Tomato. This…

The Face Shop Real Nature Mask – Green Tea

This year I plan to be more diligent with face masks. Being in the same time zone and not travelling as much this year (so I’m less exhausted all the time), means I can be more consistent with using them when I need. One of the first ones I bought and tried back in Seoul last year was the Green Tea Real…

REVIEW: Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner

I haven’t used a pencil eyeliner since I was 18 and ordinarily, nothing would get me back into trying them since I love using gel eyeliners and have never had any complaints about them. However, I was intrigued when I found out about the Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liners. So what makes them different? Well, for one, they aren’t…

What are sheet masks?

Sheet masks have been a huge part of the Asian skincare for a long time now and particularly in South Korea where you can frequently see them in dramas, movies, celebrity social media etc. Every beauty shop stocks them and every person can use them: young, old, male, female. The past year, I’ve seen a growing trend, especially on Western…

Why Asian Beauty?

So in my last post I talked about my 8 year beauty journey and mentioned that I had switched my skincare and makeup routine to predominantly Korean products. Some people may be thinking why in particular I changed it and what makes Asian beauty products so different. This post will look at some main reasons why I find it works better for…

My Beauty Journey (so far…)

Happy New Year! Since it’s now 2016 (where on earth did 2015 go??), I thought I’d take a look back all the way to 2008 where my beauty journey started. The beginning I was definitely a late bloomer compared to many of my peers when it came to all things beauty-related. I was very much a tomboy up to that…

Christmas Beauty Haul Part 1 (Ebay & ibuybeauti)

HAPPY CHRISTMAS! 🙂 Hope everyone is enjoying the festive holiday season. I usually enjoy Christmas because it’s the time of receiving gifts (who wouldn’t like that) but actually this year I’ve been equally excited in dishing out the presents. Why? Because my gifts to almost everyone included something related to Korean beauty products and I was excited to share a…

REVIEW: Wonder Pore Freshner

I wanted to pick up this Wonder Pore Freshner since I was running low on the toner I was using when I was in Seoul and had heard about how popular this was. I really liked the look of the whole Wonder Pore line when I visited Etude House but ultimately went for just the toner because I don’t really…
