June Monthly Favourites ft. Bioderma, Avène & LUSH

How is everyone? I know I’m rather late on this Favourites post given that we’re into the second or so week of July, but it’s definitely not a post I want to miss! Last month, I didn’t have any beauty favourites because I was in the midst of testing so many products that I needed to give more time for an opinion overall. Plus, I didn’t want to force any product as favourite. Honesty is the best policy after all. Otherwise, it was a laid-back month which I think, showed. It was my birthday in June – any other June babies too? We had a heatwave for a couple of days, going up to around 30 degrees so you’ll see some products here that helped me deal with that. Sometimes, I’m not sure how to deal with my skin in warmer climates, but my game seems more solid this season like I’ve finally figured it out.   ‘How?’, you ask. Let’s find out: Bioderma Sebium H2O Micellar Water Avène Thermal Spring Water L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay …

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! For now, I’m just focusing on the moment and with an almost entirely different skincare routine, I truly hope I’m making the right transition! If all goes well, I will write up my new skincare routine in about a month’s time. 🙂 Today, it’s the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Wash that I’ll be talking about so carry on reading to see what I make of it! For reference, I have combination/oily skin that can have a tendency to be dehydrated.   What is it?  It’s a cleansing gel-wash formulated with three pure clays combined with charcoal, to help detoxify your skin. The ‘detox’ includes absorbing excess oil, dirt and make-up residue which more often than not, lead to imperfections if not treated well. With use, this product helps to deeply cleanse and purify your skin. (Below Information taken from FeelUnique.com) 3 PURE CLAYS + CHARCOAL Kaolin- a highly effective natural clay, known to absorb …

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? …

YesStyle Beauty Haul + Experience! | What Am I Trying Out Next?

To say that I’ve done a bit of damage this month is probably an understatement, but I know myself – I generally don’t shop skincare and beauty that often, and when I do – it is normally a real essential which is more than forgivable. The last few beauty items that I bought were a drugstore mascara and 2 sunscreens which is hardly wild and were purchases done perhaps close to two months now. Here’s the deal: I sometimes think you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself when spending. You deserve to treat yourself once in a while! Unless of course, you have too much of the same thing which might be a real problem. But in my case, I’ve been good. I’ve been using up products (See: The Beauty Clean-Up Series) and due to use up more from my current skincare routine…so in a way, I’m being organised for my next routine. (Is there ever a real justification on spending money other than wanting to spend and buy something pretty?) 😛 Let’s start shall we? (From …

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!) Let’s Start: + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + SANA Soy Milk Moisture Cleansing Wash – Nivea Daily Essentials Crème Care Cleansing Cream Wash + Clean & Clear Exfoliating Daily Wash + LUSH Ultrabland + Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz + Earth Therapeutics Brightening Black Pearl …
