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 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: Laneige Clear-C Advanced Effector

Review: Laneige Clear-C Advanced Effector

Even though I had a crazy December last year, I somehow find myself very re-energised and raring to start the new year this month. Perhaps it’s the several days of 12-hour sleeps I got, or perhaps  it was the bountiful nutrition I got from the massive feasting – who knows. -pats tummy in contentment- Anyhoos, … Continue reading

Review: Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence

Review: Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence

Since my last round-up post on the various types of Treatment Essences/Toners to try, I haven’t stopped – that’s right, this crazed beauty junkie will always be in search for the bestest most awesomest products out there. I’ve heard a bit about Secret Key for a while, but somehow just never managed to find the … Continue reading

Round-Up: 7 Korean Beauty Trends in 2014

Round-Up: 7 Korean Beauty Trends in 2014

Since it’s almost the end of 2014, I decided to do a round-up post of the beauty trends this year. While the K-wave has taken the world by storm in terms of ridiculously good-looking boy bands/girl groups with catchy music grooves and snazzy moves, there is another industry that’s being invaded by products from Kimchi-land … Continue reading

Review: Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion Light

Review: Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion Light

One of the benefits of having slightly more active sebum glands (yes, there are benefits!) is that my skin is rarely dehydrated or dry. Sebum is a naturally produced (although usually detested) “liquid” that helps lubricate your skin – i.e. keep is from drying out. That’s why I’ve never really seen the need to actively … Continue reading

Review: Hanyul Essential Skin Softner / Softener

Review: Hanyul Essential Skin Softner / Softener

First of all – whyyyyy is the spelling “Softner”? Why isn’t it “Softener”? The grammar nazi in me is dyingggg and wanting to burst out like the alien spawn from Aliens and eat up the person who approved of this spelling. Occupational hazard-rant aside, I obviously purchased this for another reason – because I saw … Continue reading

Review: Za Essence Lotion

Review: Za Essence Lotion

It’s been a while since I’ve tried any Za skincare products – I can still vividly remember the day I went for my first Za event back in 2007ish – holding a blue Za logo as I took the commemorative “guest-was-here” shots heh. Damn uncool. Anyways, after I attended my very first Za facial a … Continue reading

Review: Hera Cell Essence

Review: Hera Cell Essence

I’m in such an impossibly foul mood today – damn you PMS. I can’t possibly be the only one suffering from the horrid onslaught of your effects, especially the bloating – I feel like a human-sized sponge soaked to the brim with liquids. Water, Y U so mean to me?! Well, to be fair, during … Continue reading

Review: Orbis Aquaforce Lotion-M Oil Cut

After I finished my first-ever bottle of IOPE Bio-conditioning Essence , I had no choice but to wait patiently till my next trip to Korea to stock up. I could have badgered, emotionally blackmailed, asked a friend to help me buy it , but I didn’t want to burden them with the weight of the … Continue reading
