Review: Sofina iP Base Essence / Dodai Essence

I’m not sure if it’s my recent trip to Tokyo taking over my mind, or if the resurgence of Japanese cosmetics is a real thang, but I’m finding much more motivation (and products) to review Japanese skincare these days. New to Singapore’s shores are Lauduree (the cosmetics, not the macarons), Albion’s makeup line, Astalift’s makeup … Continue reading

Beauty News: Sisley launches the Hydra-Global Serum

Beauty News: Sisley launches the Hydra-Global Serum

It’s a common misconception that those with oily, or combi-oily skintypes don’t require hydration (in fact, it’s something I used to think!). This is sooo untrue. Sometimes, the underlying reason for the overproduction of sebum is the skin’s natural response to trying to compensate for the lack of moisture in the skin – producing the … Continue reading

Review: Dr Jart Cicapair Serum [MUST-TRY]

Review: Dr Jart Cicapair Serum [MUST-TRY]

Now I know I’m not the only one who’s prone to that monthly breakout along the jawline and all over the face during periods of stress (and during periods hurhurhur). I’d all but resigned myself to the fact of being a once-a-month moon face, until I came upon this. Like the Pixi Glow Tonic, it’d … Continue reading

Review: Primera Pore Treatment Wild Peach

Review: Primera Pore Treatment Wild Peach

Whenever I’m in a colder / drier climate, the downside is that my skin completely goes from grape to prune, or even worse, raisin. The upside is that the enlarged pores turn almost non-existent. Alas, that effect is completely reversed once I’m back in hot and humid hometown, ala Singapore. I picked this up during … Continue reading

Review: Primera Super Sprout Serum

Review: Primera Super Sprout Serum

I’m a hardcore fan of Sulwhasoo’s First Care Serum, but from time to time, I deviate to other brands just for the purpose of reviewing (and also to secretly hope for a slightly cheaper alternative). Since I’d already decided to invest in Primera’s Miracle Seed Essence, I decided to conveniently toss this into the basket … Continue reading

Review: Primera Miracle Seed Essence

Review: Primera Miracle Seed Essence

I’ve always wanted to try something from Primera, but somehow, they always seemed a bit pricey to me for a “mass market” brand that’s situated alongside the likes of Laneige, The Face Shop, Etude House, Innisfree etc along the stretches of Myeongdong. But hey, since I’m literally running out of brands/products to try, I figured … Continue reading

Review: The History of Whoo Ja Saeng Essence

Good morning y’all! It’s been a surprisingly haze-free few days, which makes my mood (and sinus) all that better. Heh. Anyway, here’s a rather overdue review on The History Of Whoo’s star product that I got acquainted with during my trip with the brand to Korea earlier this year. I’ve been trying it out for … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Essential Skin Boosting Serum

Review: IOPE Essential Skin Boosting Serum

During one of my travels to Korea, I’d stumbled upon an outlet store where everything was at least 30% off – that was pure beauty junkie heaven! Heh. It was shelves upon shelves of all the Kbeauty brands you know and love, and even some that I hadn’t heard of before. I decided that it … Continue reading

Review: Innisfree Whitening Pore Synergy Serum

Review: Innisfree Whitening Pore Synergy Serum

Before I did the V-line Face Lifting Laser and the Pore Reduction treatment at CNP Skin Clinic in Korea, I used to have the worst issues with enlarged pores, a situation that was further exacerbated by my inclination to squeeze out the clogged pores (I know, I know, it’s the last (and mostest horriblest) thing … Continue reading
