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
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
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
...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.
Since hearing that TK Maxx in the UK had begun to sell K-beauty items, I have made a point of dropping by more often to scour their messy shelves full of open products. You do find gems there occasionally. They're also fantastic for the odd bit of gorgeous stationary in the notebooks section! Most recently,… Continue reading Review: The Creme Shop Sheet Masks
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
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
You know what? I recently did a review and mentioned how I was not into skincare as much as I usually am, and now I am on it again, scouring skincare instead of makeup online. This was unexpected. It must be something about the colder temperatures, as well as me slacking off on my routine,… Continue reading Sunscreen Round Up and Comparison! (Biore, Missha, Vichy)
These days, I am not really into testing skincare as much as I was. I'm quite content with my routine and satisfied that nothing is breaking me out, so I've just had the same products on rotation. The only problem I can't prevent is hormonal breakouts but I can make them less devastating and ensure… Continue reading Review: B Refreshed Essence Lotion
Hi everyone! So recently I bought some cheap pH testing strips so I could test the pH of my skincare products, namely my cleansers and toners. Snow White and the Asian Pear has an amazing post for explaining why your cleanser should be low pH. But in short, our skin is not a pH of… Continue reading pH Testing My Current Cleansers!
