First Impressions | Sunday Riley Good Genes & Luna

Damnit.  The following is just a first impressions post of these two products, read more about my testing process here. The Power Couple kit was high on my list of things to purchase in Sephora during my #NYC2K17 vacation. Sure, $85 is steep for a deluxe kit, but at least I could try it, debunk…

Review | Son & Park Beauty Gel

Am I late to the party, because this product has been out for a while.. Packaging The packaging is simple, functional and sturdy, which is an aesthetic I personally love. Very simple and model chic.  Texture & Smell It feels and smells like rose hand sanitiser, there’s no nice way to put it.  Claims A…

Review | Atoclassic Real Tonic Masks

Hanbang your life. Atoclassic is a brand that caters primarily to those with sensitive skin and suffering with atophy (new word for me). So they’re like a Korean Aveeno, Oilatum and Dermaplex but with Hanbang (한방, Korean traditional medicine)! After months of reading Cat from Snow White and the Asian Pear (the Queen of Hanbang)’s posts on hanbang, I…

My A+Facial Cleansers

I think in product categories, which means I try not to get too attached to products themselves, instead looking at product function. So while I might have a favourite oil cleanser, or favourite acid toner, I have others that work well enough that I wouldn’t hate if I had to use them.  That said, I…

What’s in my travel bag?

While my cousin is the true globetrotter my desire to always be prepared means for short overnight and weekend trips, I have three travel bags, all packed and ready to go. One for skincare, one for bodycare and another containing sanitary products, but you’re most interested in the skincare aren’t you? I knew it. Though,…

Here is my skincare.. modesty?

Today in the blogparty we’re talking about vanities! Or.. lack of vanities. Turns out, we don’t all actually have those pretty vanities that we see in movies or on television! Laven does though, and I am currently pawing at the screen trying to find a way to make it mine. Soooo preeeetyyy *pawpaw*. What I…

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…
