Review: My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask

If you remember from my YesStyle Beauty Haul + Experience post, I had hauled two different boxes of sheet masks. One was the NARUKO Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask which I have previously reviewed. Today, I am reviewing the My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask. 🙂 For reference, I have combination/oily skin that can have a tendency to be dehydrated. Let’s begin shall we? What is it? It is a box of 10 sheet masks, designed to hold as much fluid as possible in order to moisten and soften the skin from layers below the epidermis. From the grid, it claims to nourish and brighten, firm and moisturise so it’s definitely a sheet mask that packs a punch (or so it seems). How much does it cost? I purchased mine for £15.51 which is a reasonable price I think. I tried to find a RRP but it was difficult to do so. However, in my experience, the ordinary MBD masks are around  £10/11 per box, and the fancier ones (like this one) …

A Handful of K-Beauty Masks

A few months ago, I hauled quite a lot of beauty products which included a total of five sheet mask singles hence the title. Today, I am back to give you my mini reviews of them. I was going to call them first impressions but to be honest, I think my opinions will be a little too descriptive to call it that. Also, in my experience, I have never had a differing opinion from the first, when I tried the same sheet mask again. If in the future, I come across more K-beauty sheet mask singles, then I will make this into a reoccurring series. 🙂 Let’s begin, shall we? TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Masks in ‘Rice’: This is technically not my first time trying out Tonymoly masks, but it is my first time trying one from the I’m Real line. The fit for me was generally good as are the hole placements; however, the area between the nose and lips is too wide therefore covering up most of my upper-lip! There are slits too that …

Review: NARUKO Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask

Hello everyone! Today, I’m back with something a little different from my usual posts. Traditionally, I do not write reviews. Maybe some concise reviews here and there as part of a collective haul/empties/you-name-it post but never have I written a detailed, individual review. Well, I guess this is the start of something new! Originally, I had planned to post a collection of first impressions relating back to my quite recent YesStyle Haul on my Instagram but as I started writing about the first product in my drafts, I had more than enough to say – in other words, it was getting lengthy. Thus, I decided it was best to type up a full-size review because believe me – this product deserves more than a first impressions glance! For reference, I have combination/oily skin that can have a tendency to be dehydrated. Let’s begin shall we? What is it? It’s a box of 10 sheet masks, designed to help skin replenish hydration intensely so that dull, tired-looking skin becomes radiant again. How much does it cost? …

March Monthly Favourites ft. Clinique, Zara + Eucerin!

Hello everyone! It feels like forever since I last did a monthly favourites for some reason. Maybe it’s because this month feels extra long even though it’s been eventful! As some of you may know, I went to Rome for a few days mid-March which was fantastic although funnily enough, that feels like a time away now. (Check out my previous post on it here and here.) What have you been up to? The season is finally changing and I can’t wait to wear more Spring-appropriate clothes. (I just come back from shopping actually!) But for now, check out my recent favourites that is welcoming Spring with a bang!

So I suppose a pair of jeans or two aren’t that …

3 K-Beauty Sheet Masks You Need To Know About (+ Try!)

I remember when I was younger – in my teens and on my family trips back to Hong Kong for the summer, I would buy and try out Asian skincare and even some less well-known Western skincare brands. This was way before online shopping was considered a) secure and b) extremely convenient. If you have family or even friends, who quite regularly go back ‘home’ or at least to their relatives’ motherland, then you may know about asking them to help buy you some skincare as a souvenir (yes, it’s a thing!). Flip to the present, and you’re able to online-shop these products – whether they are necessarily cheaper is another story but the heart always wants what it wants. I have had one shopping experience on YesStyle and a few on Ebay regarding Korean skincare…but shipping time can be as long as two weeks. Now I’m happy to share that this might change very soon (my UK readers, I’m looking at you) because I actually bought a few K-beauty goodies at TK Maxx. Featured in this post:  The …
