[Review]: NEW Innisfree Real Fit Matte Lipstick + Dr. Troub Sheetmask πŸ’„

Yesterday, on the 20th February, Innisfree released their new ‘Real Fit Matte Lipstick’ line; offering both matte and regular formulations. The matte shades focus on variations of red; whereas the standard, somewhat satin finish type are ‘MLBB’ shades. There are 10 colours for each texture. The advertisements for the range seemingly push the matte type…

GRWM 🌸

Indubitably, I am the sort of person who religiously follows the same cosmetics routine despite being nosey for other’s morning routines: you’d think with all the hauls I read about, I’d be persuaded to venture off in search of new products; yet this hasn’t been the case for several months. So, what products have I…

[Review]: e.l.f Cosmetics Rose Gold Look Set (🌱vegan).

e.l.f Cosmetics is nothing new to the majority of cosmetic enthusiasts who aim to discover decent quality makeup, which is also cruelty-free and Vegan. I’m not entirely sure when e.l.f products were officially released in the UK; I somehow missed that memo after waiting a year plus for their arrival. Shame. When looking at the…

Anna Holtz Sheet Mask Review

I’ve never been one to spend a substantial amount of money when it comes to skincare. Argueably, luxury skincare brands aren’t on a whole one hundred percent ‘the best of the best; yet I’m not claiming that all high-end brands lack the ability to better the condition of people’s skin: it depends on a brand…

MOTD – 28/5/18 🌸

As of late I have been enticed by ‘Make-up of the day’ (MOTD) style blog posts despite being a wearer of minimal makeup: it just goes to show that there is some joy in seeking out the details of a random individual’s lifestyle and habits. If makeup is to be taken seriously and therefore premeditated…

What’s in my travel pouch? – Fukuoka Edition πŸ›«

Next week I’m taking a brief trip to Fukuoka, Japan. Unlike back in December of last year when I visited Osaka, I intend to take less of my belongs with me; mainly due to the fact that I’m restricted to using a holdall or small suitcase which complies with in-flight/carry-on luggage rules. Travelling in Spring…

Mini Kbeauty Haul/Review πŸ€”

Upon noticing that my relatively small makeup collection lacked pastel or Springtime appropriate shades – mainly due to the mass hoard of burgundy and brick rose coloured lip products – I decided to treat myself to some affordable basic cosmetics which would offer a subtle, more suitable look for the current season. I’m Meme/μ•„μž„λ―Έλ―Έ ”I’m…

[Review]: the SAEM Eco Soul – Essence Cushion All Cover.

Since the end of last year, around the time of festivities, the Korean brand ‘the SAEM’ has had recurring price discounts of up to 50% across all of their products. I had never used any of their skincare of makeup products before so gathering an option of their cosmetics during their sale period seemed fitting….

How to clean makeup sponges.

Anyone who relies on using a beauty blender or a sponge puff on a regular basis may have wondered “what is the best technique for cleaning makeup sponges?” For effectively cleaning cosmetic brushes it’s another story: there are plenty of brush washing devices on the market which allow you to thoroughly remove excess makeup between…

[Review]: Snow’ella – Zoella Beauty.

As I missed spending the Christmas just past with family, I have only just received my Christmas gifts which I didn’t expect to be presented with. Despite residing in the UK when Zoe Sugg (Zoella), one of the most popular beauty and lifestyle YouTubers, released her first and further beauty products in addition to home…

[Reviews]: Kbeauty – Base Makeup.

Second to lip products Korean Foundation cushions and BB creams are my preferred cosmetics in terms of interest. Despite not wearing much makeup, I have tried and tested a fair few Korean base makeup products: mainly thanking to all the free samples Korean stores give upon most purchases. For reference these products aren’t categorised into…

How to create a dewy makeup look with less makeup.

There isn’t a hidden secret to achieving a dewy, youthful makeup look without the need for numberous amounts of cosmetics. It’s all common sense. The key is layering skincare products rather than relying on primers, flash balms or highlighters. An ‘everyday’ dewy makeup routine like this is simplistic enough without being time consuming and is…

If you would like to read the other half of this post which is the first of my Kbeauty review series you can simply find it here. Etude House – Rosy Tint Lips (06 English Garden): This was the only lip product I brought during my first experience of Korea, and you’ll soon discover why…

Daily Makeup Routine.Β 

I titled this as ‘daily’ makeup routine when rather it should be my ‘sometimes’ makeup routine as on average I only wear makeup twice a week. If you were hoping to learn how to accomplish an intricate elegant eyeshadow look then I’m afraid you have come to the wrong blog post. I literally never have…

My Night Time Routine – Pampering Edition.Β 

The Night Time Routine is one of the most enjoyable anticipated parts of a day for me; whether it takes five minutes long or is an hour full of relaxation. I don’t have the best memory, although I am almost certain that I haven’t dedicated an entire blog post to my Night Time Routine prior…

5 Tips for Oily Sensitive Skin During Winter.

For most parts of the world January-February or even early March brings harsher weather than that of the last months of the previous year. As someone who as been opting and experimenting with skincare for Oily Sensitive skincare since the age of twelve, I have come across a few tips to maintaining skin’s health and…

[Reviews]: Kbeauty – Lip Products Part 1.

Now you may be wondering (-or not, fair enough you are entitled to your option), what is all the hype concerning Korean beauty and skincare products? Well to state simply there are several benefits to Korean cosmetics and self-care products: If you can buy Kbeauty products directly from or in Korea, they’re cheap or mostly…

[Skincare]: My Winter Routine.Β 

I’m quite sure it wasn’t all too long ago since I uploaded a post detailing the products I use for my daily skincare. I also often write about new beauty products I have purchased, reviewing a select few. This time round I have purposely not mentioned the new cosmetics in which I’m using, I will…

[Korean Beauty] products: The Best Sites to Buy them.

I’m sure by now that most of you are well aware of the increasingly popular ‘trend’ of using Korean Skincare and cosmetics in the Western parts of the world. Before I came to Korea I had already incorporated some Korean brand products into my routine. Seemingly people who are fans of kpop and other aspects…

[Skincare & Haircare]: Men’s Routine.

Undoubtedly physical appearance will never be as important as personality, however, it’s always attractive when a man cares about his hygiene and personal style just as much as the standards they expect women to uphold. I have used some ‘men’s’ facial care products before; I don’t believe that just because something has a masculine or…

All about Face Masks.

My first blog post which remains posted to this day was about 3 skincare remedies you can made at home. Since then I have tried many face masks to tackle different skin issues; some being homemade whilst others are store brought. I use face masks quite regularly, approximately 3-4 times per week, especially in order…

My Current Skincare & Haircare Routines.

A second post in one day featuring skincare? I might have a slight obsession. What else can I say? I’m a simple person who is easily pleased. By no means do I have ‘perfect’ skin with completely gorgeous locks. These days I am starting to feel less depressed and confident about my appearance. I think…

November Haul of Sale Items.

Who doesn’t love a good bargain? Infact 80% of the time I will only by beauty, skincare or clothing if it is on sale or already at a low/reasonable price. When a new product releases and I’ve missed that first few weeks of it’s lowered introductory offer, I will wait until it’s on sale again…

My travel essentials for my trip to Osaka, Japan.

In a month I’m taking a brief week long trip to Osaka, Japan. It’s going to be equally or even colder there this December than it is in Korea and certainly at least entering the minus degrees which the UK doesn’t experience until late January or February. Apart from the obvious essentials including a thick…

5 of the Most Popular Korean Skincare & Beauty Products.

This list isn’t based on my recommendations alone, more so put together with the help of ‘best sellers’ sections of websites that sell Korean Skincare and beauty products. For some people they delve into using korean cosmetics due to their admiration of kpop idols and actresses, therefore wanting to adopt their styles, whereas others simply…

My skincare routine: For very sensitive, oily skin.

By no means am I a dermatologist. Just from a young age I have tried and tested alot of products in the attempt to find skincare that isn’t irritating for my very sensitive skin whilst at the same time removes deep sebum. Usually this isn’t a good skin type combination to have. If I use…

Makeup suitable for fair skin.

In the Western parts of the world there is such a diversity in race, that most makeup brands aim to produce a wide variety of base makeup shades. However, in the UK at least, having tanned skin is considered ‘healthy looking’. I don’t think there is absolutely anything wrong with having tanned skin as long…

[Review]: Worth the hype?

Today I thought I’d discuss my experiences of using 3 products which were/are popular among social media and TV. Of course when something recieves a majority of great reviews or votes, we are more enclined to buy the items ourselves. Hopefully this post could save at least one person some money or teach us to…

My top 5 skincare products.

Number5 – Shiseido Perfect Whip Foam Cleanser: I find this to be one of the best foam cleansers for combination/oily skin, as it literally cleanses all traces of oil & sebum. It leaves your skin feeling matte, but not dry & pores appear to reduce in size. The standard 120ml container provides plenty of product;…

Simple Micellar Cleaning Water: Review

My previous encounters with ‘Simple’ products haven’t always been successful. They claim that their products are suitable for those with sensitive skin; personally I wouldn’t say so. However, my negative opinion of the brand gradually subsided when I began to use a free full-sized bottle of their ‘Micellar cleaning water’. The product is intended to…

Innisfree Jeju volcanic pore clay mask: Review

If your familar with Korean skincare products and brands, most of you will be aware that both of the Innisfree volcanic skincare collections are very popular (i.e. the Jeju volcanic range and the super volcanic range). Based on their popularly and encouraging advertisments, I purchased the ‘Jeju volcanic pore clay mask’. According to Innisfree, the…

Etude House Moonlight in Spoon: Review

Recently I decided to purchase some Korean skincare products, which I could use in case of a ‘skin emergency’ (you know what I mean). Among these products was an ‘Etude House Moonlight in Spoon Blending Sleeping Cream (Green tea)’. This product claims to give you clear and moist skin. All you have to do is…
