Review: Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream

Review: Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream

During my days as a magazine journo, I attended many a skincare briefing sessions, where I absorbed (like a parched sponge) the massive amounts of skincare and makeup information bestowed upon us by the experts. One piece of advice has stuck firmly in my mind for the last 10 years or so – “anti-ageing skincare … Continue reading

Review: Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Creme

Review: Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Creme

Bioderma is usually known more for their no-rinse micellar cleansing water (ya know, that pink-capped one?) – makeup artists swear by it, and I personally also use it on a daily basis both for makeup removal as well as some general cleansing during the day (kinda like a wet wipe). Their products probably don’t ignite … Continue reading

Review: Creme Simon Creme Universelle

Woah.. major inertia these few days – somehow, I’m still not back up to my 100% level because of the weather. Transiting from a -13 degrees to 35 degrees is kinda shocking to this old and worn body. Hah. Anyhoos, speaking of the Korean winter, here’s one item that came in somewhat useful in preventing … Continue reading

Review: CNP Laboratory Mugener Ampule

Review: CNP Laboratory Mugener Ampule

I feel like I have extraordinary control over my body – I once had gastroenteritis but I still managed to drag myself to work (that, and also because my workaholic of an ex-boss demanded that I go in). I can wake up at 4.30am on a daily basis even though I sleep at 12, and … Continue reading

Review: Hanyul Seo Ri Tae Anti-Aging Essence

Review: Hanyul Seo Ri Tae Anti-Aging Essence

When I first started out as a fledgling overly- enthusiastic writer for my first magazine, I would eagerly attend all the workshops and events, trying to soak up all the information like a sponge. Turns out I didn’t soak up as much as I wanted to  – I remember one scientist telling me that anti-ageing … Continue reading

Review: Hanyul Seo Ri Tae Anti-Aging Cream

So after testing out my skin age with SK-II’s Magic Ring test, I was pretty horrified to hear that my skin firmness is 39%. Dafugggggg. Forget Botox –  find me some cement to prop these saggy jowls up now! After calming down and reining my inner drama mama in, I decided to just pile on … Continue reading

Review: Amore Pacific Hydrating Fluid

Review: Amore Pacific Hydrating Fluid

I seldom complain about my skin being dry, because like our local public transport during peak hours, it’s always packed full – of sebum, that it. Gross mental images aside, the recent heatwave has left my skin in tatters – literally, my lips cracked more than once despite chugging tonnes of water. To avoid having … Continue reading

Review: SK-II Stempower Cream

Review: SK-II Stempower Cream

I’ve been meaning to review this cream but I just keep forgetting – it could be partially due to the fact that I have to keep hiding this from my brother who keeps kidnapping it to use.  He claims that the tub of cream grows legs and walks over to his room. -snorts in disbelief- … Continue reading

Review: Boots No. 7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream

Review: Boots No. 7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream

I love, love, love the Sulwhasoo Renodigm Dual Care Cream but unfortunately, my wallet doesn’t love it that much. At KRW150,000, it’s a lil pricey to be using on a daily basis (and to be re-purchasing every 2-3 months). Alas, I’ve had to search for a more affordable alternative. Boots No. 7 Beautiful Skin Day … Continue reading

Review: Belif Peat Miracle Revital Cream

Review: Belif Peat Miracle Revital Cream

Sometimes, people (well fine, me instead) tend to focus more on serums and essences cos of the perceived concentration of product. It got to a point where I realised I had too many serums and not enough creams to seal the deal (and also to seal the goodness into my skin). Belif Peat Miracle Revital … Continue reading

Review: Orbis Aquaforce Moisture-M Oil Cut

After being glued to RuPaul’s Drag Race over the last 2 weeks, I’ve learned to love myself more (well, even more than my usual narcissistic levels), and that hey, having a big face can have its benefits too. Sure, I’ll prolly have to relegate myself to the back of all photos forever, but the plus … Continue reading

Review: Sulwhasoo Extra Refining Eye Cream

Review: Sulwhasoo Extra Refining Eye Cream

Day 2 of being back in Singapore, and I’m still in recovery mode (although somehow, I miraculously manage to survive being at work heh). After some relatively intensive shopping (along with a lot of sweating cos of the icky summer weather), my dark eye circles are now similar to a cosmic black hole on my … Continue reading

Review: Sulwhasoo Snowise Whitening Cream

Amazingly, here’s another Sulwhasoo product that I’ve forgotten to review – and I only realised it when I was about to switch over to the Snowise EX Whitening Cream. heh. Well, better late than never, and better curvy and healthy than skinny I say. I hereby commence pig-out on cupcakes. nom nom nom. muahaha. Ok … Continue reading
