Review: It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition Eye Cream

I’m back with another review! This time, it’s a K-beauty item that I bought online which you may recognise from my YesStyle Haul post. I’ve been testing it out for over a month – the only eye cream that I’ve been using day and night actually, so I think it’s time to finally do a write-up! Enjoy! ūüôā What is it?¬† It’s an eye cream that’s part of the It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition skincare line which I’ve never tried before. In fact, I’ve never tried this brand before either. This eye cream (supposedly) promotes elasticity and moisture to the eye-area. How much does it cost? Its actual price seems to be around the ¬£15 mark but I got this on sale on YesStyle for around ¬£6/7. Considering that the tube is 25ml as opposed to the typical 15ml, this is a bargain! Where from? The brand itself is from South Korea. The actual product, I purchased from YesStyle. Who is it for?¬† When researching the brand, I found it¬†very interesting. So¬†It’s Skin realised the skin …

Review: L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Wash

I’m currently in the midst of testing numerous products. I haven’t actually counted how many but it’s definitely over ten!

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? …

The Beauty Clean-Up #5 (empties)

We’re onto #5! Wow. That actually feels like some sort of achievement¬†because right at the start of this journey,¬†I just wanted to use up more of my beauty products, some of which weren’t being touched and by doing so, reduce wastage. Now that I’ve gotten to this number, ¬†I’m using up products that I’m trying out but liking at the same time meaning that¬†I’ve put more emphasis on how I shop and not just buying for the sake of buying. Completing an empties post is as decluttering for the mind as it is for the home (literally). So now, comes the time to empty my junk box again to welcome Spring and to give myself an excuse to buy new products! (There’s still so many brands and products I need to try out!)
