February Monthly Favourites | 2019

The sun has been shining brightly this week and it’s feeling more like Spring (although still cold). My senses are awakened and I’m feeling more inspired than ever. Like finally. I had been waiting for Winter to go to sleep for a good full month now so it’s nice to finally see that wish granted. There’s just something nice about the sun shining down on your face in the morning whilst you’re still in bed because really, who loves dark mornings anyways? I am still playing a bit of blog catch-up but we’re getting close to the end before I start focusing on the new content that I hope to put forward on the blog. I’m rather excited for this because even though I write leisurely, there are topics I want to discuss further as means to inspire the next generation of kids. As some of you may know, I was in Hong Kong for most of February so my favourite products that I’m showcasing here is linked to that. Let’s get started! Featured in …

Products I’m Trying Out This Year

My shopping has gotten a bit out of hand in recent months. Not that I buy heaps in one go but that’s possibly where the problem lies. I buy in bits and before you know it, a collection has been built but nothing has been opened for use yet. It’s fair to say that I have a few product categories that I no longer need to fill in for this year and what is that you ask? Without further ado, let’s get started! FYI, most of these products were purchased on Amazon. I’ve recently come back from Hong Kong so any beauty products that I’ve purchased on that trip will be showcased separately.

Why + How Dry Shampoo Could Be Damaging Your Hair (and Scalp)

There were a number of ways that I wanted to title this. In part, this is a celebratory post because I’ve noticed just how comfortable my hair and scalp has been feeling. It has taken many months – maybe even a year – but I’m feeling better than ever. If you haven’t been following you can read my initial post, Why I Stopped Using Dry Shampoo. There, I tell you a brief history about my hair, and then the problems that I encountered when I started to use dry shampoo which led to my hair and scalp issues. I was happy to have shared the post because I didn’t realise just how impactful it’d be and truthfully, it was nice to know I wasn’t the only one suffering. So please, I urge you to read it especially if you do use dry shampoo – you might just be saving your hair and scalp from all the problems that I had. Note: You should ought to read this article too. Shortly after discovering how much my issues have healed over time, …

Review: L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel-Cream Wash

I would like to get back into routine of writing more reviews. I don’t typically write them because they take the most time to not only make a post out of, but to product-test and/or have a discussion set up. As such, not all products are worthy of discussion (which is how I decide whether to review something or not) but certainly for today, we’ll be having quite a heated one. This time, I am reviewing the L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel-Cream Wash, so stick around to find out just what I think! FYI – I have combination to oily skin, with a tendency to be dehydrated. What is it? It’s a gel-cream wash cleanser, formulated for dry and sensitive skin. I don’t necessarily have dry skin so arguably this isn’t for me, however I find it interesting to test out some products this way because I don’t think labels are always correct. This cleanser’s selling points are its rose and jasmine flower extracts which supposedly sooth, moisturise and protect the skin. How much does it …

New Products I’m Currently Trying

How’s it going all? It’s a rainy weekend which means it’s an indoors type of day where I get to catch up on blogging! I have been shopping quite a bit – probably a little too much for my own good but it’s been super fun. I’ve more or less racked up a new wardrobe however for today, I want to discuss some new products that I’ve been trying out lately that are “new” to me. I am terrible when it comes to actually being on-trend. I generally buy products on the whim or products that has been on my list for a while and well, here they are in all their glory…or not. You shall see. New in Bodycare I’ll start with my first disappointing piece because from memory, it is the oldest from my “new collection of things”. It is the Avene Mineral Fluid SPF50+. I bought this over a month ago – actually on my first week when I had just started my new job. Although I needed a new sunscreen, it was …
