Skincare Diary, March 2019: What I’ve been using this winter

The plan for my 'skincare diaries' was to make a series of skincare routines exploring my 'skincare wardrobe' but after a few drafts of this post, I realised that I don't have a wardrobe big enough to warrant trying to explore it. Especially now that my wardrobe has gone through a bit of a cull,… Continue reading Skincare Diary, March 2019: What I’ve been using this winter

A Peek at my Skincare Diary #1: Short and Sweet

Gasp! A Saturday post? Yeah, I forgot to schedule some new posts whilst I was panicking over an essay. I have some time to get some posts up and scheduled now, though, so you all have something to read while I am contemplating the inner workings of the mind for my degree! I initially planned… Continue reading A Peek at my Skincare Diary #1: Short and Sweet

Review: Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Sheet Masks

I may have mentioned in my blogging process post about a draft or photo or two that was just buried in my notes and folders. Well, I dug up some photos that looked really nice and re-shot a sheet mask selfie, and boom. The pretty shots here were taken last May (!!!!!!) so for me… Continue reading Review: Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Sheet Masks

I Think My Moisture Barrier is Damaged.

...and I haven't been using acids! WHAT. My skin was in a state of dryness just after Christmas where just about my whole family looked at me and went, 'why are your cheeks so red???' Making me panic and check the mirror and yes, my inner cheeks were unusually red. Now, I am prone to a… Continue reading I Think My Moisture Barrier is Damaged.

Review: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla

Hi everyone! This Laneige lip sleeping mask has constantly been up there on my list to try because so many have raved about it. I never expected to actually buy it, though. It's about £16-20 a pot, normally! WAY out of my ideal price range. However, K-Mall, an online store based in Korea, had them on a special… Continue reading Review: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla

Review: Clio Kill Black Brush Pen Liner

Months ago, my search for a great black pen eye liner ended. I'd been looking for a nice one since I first got into makeup, trying out brands like the Maybelline Master Precise, Revlon ColorStay and Eyeko Fat pen liners, but none of these could hold up on my oily eyelids for long. Instead, I… Continue reading Review: Clio Kill Black Brush Pen Liner

Long, Rambly Review: Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream

Hi everyone! I have a review for you all today, for the Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream. It's my first Japanese makeup product, so quite exciting for me! Finding a match for my skin has been challenging so far and I'd heard on the Reddit that Japanese BBs tend to run more yellow than Korean… Continue reading Long, Rambly Review: Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream

Review: CosRx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Sometimes, I am just not feeling up to doing a review for certain products. That is, unless I have repurchased because I don't normally repurchase and it means that I can't quite live without it or haven't found something that is like it. CosRx 's A-Sol is one of those things. I purchased my first… Continue reading Review: CosRx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Review: Maskingdom 2-Step ‘I Wish’ Happy Birthday Mask

I've been wanting to do another sheet mask review for so long after the unparalleled success on this blog of this review here. However, sheet masking has become just an occasional treat for me seeing as my skin doesn't need it that much. This mask from Maskingdom was passed along to me by a family friend. I… Continue reading Review: Maskingdom 2-Step ‘I Wish’ Happy Birthday Mask

My Skincare Routine – Jan 2017

Strap in your seatbelts, readers, because this is one of my longest posts to date. It's huge because my routine doesn't change a lot over a year so I'm making this a rare, annual entry. My focus on skincare really blows up in the winter, when transitional weather wrecks my skin a little and sends me… Continue reading My Skincare Routine – Jan 2017
