Letting go of clutter: Skincare Samples

Hauling Responsibly is one of my most read posts. It blew up in a way that I did not expect, and inspired others (who then inspired me) in ways I could not have predicted. So I decided to do a little check up and see if I’m sticking to the guidelines I set out for myself….

Review | Superdrug Simply Pure Hydrating Serum

Ceramides, cera-what? I’ve been using this serum for about a year now, and gifting it to as many people as I possibly can. There are very few products that 100% deliver on what they promise, so finding one feels pretty awesome. It’s even more amazing when such a well formulated product is an own brand,…

Managing my Skincare Concerns

Yay, the first Blog Party content post! Today we’re talking about our skin concerns and how to manage them. Right at the top of my blog I have a page that talks about my Skin Type, Concerns and Shade, but the information is really minimal. So I’m really glad to be able to elaborate on those a…

My Favourite Sheet Masks

The first time I used a sheet mask, I was confused.. It probably didn’t help that I wasn’t ever really blown away when I used them. Others would go gaga over masks, having spiritual awakenings about the process and effects, yet I couldn’t understand what made them so exciting. “Sure masks are fun, but are…

Brand Review | Eucerin ‎DermoPURIFYER

Back when my skincare purchases were based on flashy claims on packaging, Eucerin’s DermoPURIFYER white and green clinical boxes with simple promises did little to entice me, so I ignored them. Oh how wrong I was! I’ve found the products in this range to be simple, effective and cost efficient. Their website is a treasure trove of…

Blogging with friends!

Hey look, I made friends! See Mom, I can do it! Sophie (who’s a fellow Brit!) reached out to all of us, wondering if we were interested in a blogging collaboration extravaganza. We all said yes, and here we are! In the following weeks, we’ll be blogging together, group reviews, interviews and all sorts of…

Missha Time Revolution Clear Toner

Introduction Although my routine is a category based routine, where I place more emphasis on product function over brand name or type, I realised that there are certain products that I always gravitate to. It’s just that they’re not always available cheaply, or even at all so I’ve set out on a quest to try…

Blogging about Asian Beauty for a Western Audience.

Happy Media Monday! Today was going to be a review on 4Minute’s new song Hate, but then something came up so that’s not going to happen.  Oh well, okay if you must know! The song is okay, not as good as their previous release Crazy but after a while the weak drop (and it is…

Review | Cremorlab Aqua Essence Water Fluid

Battle of the Self-Foaming Cleansers

Although my routine is category based, where I place more emphasis on product function over brand name or type, I realised there are certain products that I always gravitate to. I’ve associated effects I want with the products themselves. In some cases this is fine as they are easy to acquire, in other cases, they…
