REVIEW: Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Essence & Cream

At the start of this year, Innisfree launched a new skincare line containing Jeju lava seawater which focuses on hydration and anti-aging. I was immediately drawn to the beautiful deep blue ocean packaging (as blue is my favourite colour), and Innisfree skincare always works really well for me so I was eager to try products from the new line. (I’ve since…

REVIEW: Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

Before I got into Asian Beauty, I had no idea about the concept of a sleeping mask (also known as a sleeping pack). Sleeping masks just aren’t commonly found in the Western beauty market and it isn’t a product that is well known outside of the AB realm. Within, AB however, there are many different types and varieties from all…

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.
