Mediheal Kiwi Apple Ade Mask

If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know I was really excited last weekend because I found my first physical Korean shop in central London that sells sheet masks. The Centre Point Food Store on New Oxford Street sells primarily Korean and Japanese food but they had a small Korean beauty section at the back of the shop. While they had…

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: 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…

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: Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off

In my previous post, I talked about the benefits of exfoliating and reviewed the TonyMoly chemical peeling gel. This time I want to talk about a physical exfoliator. Anyone who forays into Asian/Korean skincare will probably know of, or has tried the Skinfood Black Sugar Mask. It has basically achieved cult beauty status and is Skinfood’s bestseller and the one product…
