REVIEW: Banila Co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm

In my previous post on lip and eye makeup removers, I mentioned how they weren’t so great for removing face makeup, but in this post I want to talk about what is great for that. The Banila Co. Clean It Zero cleansing balm. I’ve always been a fan of makeup wipes – I’ve used the Simple Kind to Skin Facial Cleansing Wipes…

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…

REVIEW: TonyMoly Floria Brightening Peeling Gel

  Can’t believe it took me so long to get into peeling gels. I guess it’s the fact that they’re way more prevalent and popular in Asia than they are in the UK, so once I started paying attention to Korean skincare, peeling gels were hard to miss.
