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: 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.

REVIEW: Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

I’ve talked about using chemical peelings gels and physical sugar masks and the final method I currently use to exfoliate my skin is the Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask.
