Organising skincare into Product Categories

I decided to manage my skin care routine and finances more efficiently when I went through my product stash and realised I didn’t have a sensible selection of products for my actual needs. I had like four different moisturisers in various states of use, one cleanser I didn’t like very much and a toner I was ignoring…

Review | Serendi_Beauty Sparkling CO2 Mask Pack

Why should brides have all the fun? ❤ You know? I know very little about this brand. I kind of appreciate that there’s no great lore or epic story (in English anyway). As far as I can tell, this is a home spa brand, they only have two products available in the West and I…

The Undupeables: My Seven Skincare HGs

I’m writing up my current routine (I know, it’s finally happening!). It took me a while to figure out how to lay it out because I don’t really go by product, I go by product category or function. So, if I want to wash my face depending on what time of day it is, if…

Brand Review | Hada Labo

Hada Labo is ❤ There really isn’t much to say that they haven’t already said. Hada Labo appealed to me because of it’s ultra simple approach to skincare in each product. In a marketplace where it seems like a product has to be everything and do anything it is refreshing to find a brand that says,…

Review | L’Occitane Crème Divine

 Is it really so wonderful? -x- This is an old review that’s been sitting in my draft for two years. So I thought, why not publish it? Did you know that beauty brands have flagship products? Because, I had no idea. This product is such a big deal to L’Occitane, this is reportedly their number…

Review | Clabiane W-Line

Cla- who? A few months ago, I discovered that a friend of mine in Korea started her own company as a Korean cosmetics retailer. We started talking and she asked me if I would consider blogging for her site Kokofash. I said sure! And she sent me the items over. However, due to the reasons…

Buying Asian Beauty in the UK

I do most of my Asian Beauty shopping online, but customs charges mean I’m limited in what I can buy. Even if the seller has sales, and does offers on shipping I have to be mindful that I’ll be hit with customs charges if I go over a certain limit. It doesn’t matter if they mark…

Blogger Boundaries ft. Snow White and the Asian Pear

There have been some really awesome thought-provoking discussions flying around the International Asian beautyblog community, sparked by posts like:  How My Elaborate Korean Skincare Routine Helps Me Fight Depression by 50 Shades of Snail, Skincaretainment: Connection & the culture of Korean Beauty by fanserviced-b, and Thoughts on Hauling Responsibly, & Skincare as a Hobby by Snow White and…

How to Beauty Haul responsibly.

I know this is a party pooper topic that no-one really wants to talk about, but it really is important.  I know from experience how easy it is to get yourself swept away. It’s so easy to reach for your wallet to spend spend spend when you see rave reviews, first looks, unboxings and the like from bloggers or…

Figuring out your skincare triggers.

The hardest skincare lesson I’ve had to figure out is that you never stop figuring out your skincare triggers. You just don’t. Your environment changes, your diet changes, your body changes, you’re in a constant state of change, so obviously your skin will change.  There is no easy way to figure out what your triggers…

Easy How To Event Free Samples from Innisfree World.

This promotion is no longer active. About a month ago, I heard that Innisfree was giving out a free sample set though their “Easy How To” event, you can find the link here. It is a really easy to do tutorial, but can be a little finicky, so if you have an add blocker installed,…
