Review – Morrocco Method Hair Care Range

After the birth of my daughter, I discovered that I was losing much more hair than usual. Now my hair was normally long and soft but tends to be flat due to its fine texture. However, I’m not sure if giving birth had somehow affected my hormones but my scalp also gained a tendency to become greasy more easily and I was dropping SO … Read More Review – Morrocco Method Hair Care Range

Review – Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum

Hydrating serums are the foundation of my core skincare regime. I truly believe that if your skin is properly hydrated, half the battle is already won. Today I’m going to share with you one of my favourite hydrating serums (which I’ve already bought backups of) and that is the Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum. Before we begin, let’s take a look at its … Read More Review – Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum

Review – Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

The Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm is one of my go-to makeup removers. I’ve already finished 2 tubs of this cleansing balm and I’m currently on my 3rd one. I use this product for my 1st cleanse to remove makeup and sunscreen. Before we go further with this review, let’s take a look at its ingredients, shall we? Ingredients Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Carthamus … Read More Review – Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

A Burmese Beauty Secret – The Thanaka Powder

Picture Source: Lonely Planet Many people will be surprised to know that my race is actually Burmese. This is because I actually look nothing like the typical Burmese (tanned with dark South-East Asian features). Instead I look very very Chinese with fair skin and almond shaped eyes. My family migrated to Singapore more than 25 years ago when I was just 5 years old … Read More A Burmese Beauty Secret – The Thanaka Powder

Review – Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinol Night Oil

Photo taken from official website pestleandmortar.com I came across the Irish brand Pestle & Mortar when Caroline Hirons (the super famous UK skincare blogger) claimed that their Superstar Retinol Night Oil is “the best retinol I’ve used outside of a prescription“. With a claim like that, and especially from one who’s known to be a skincare guru, how could I not check that product out?! … Read More Review – Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinol Night Oil

Review – Differin Gel 0.1%

Photo taken from official Differin website Differin Gel contains a powerful prescription-strength retinoid called adapalene in concentrations of both 0.1% and 0.3% respectively. According to their official website, “adapalene adjusts the speed of skin cell turnover to make sure your skin goes through the right process, creating a healthier environment for skin. Regulating skin cell turnover to a normal rate helps to keep the pores … Read More Review – Differin Gel 0.1%

Review – IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning

I believe that the IOPE Bio Essence is one of the first few “First Essence” from Korea. I remember when it first came out in Korea in 2012, everyone and their mother was gushing and raving over it. Some people had even commented that it is a dupe for the more expensive SKII Facial Treatment Essence. It had also won plenty of awards since it launched. … Read More Review – IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning

Skincare Wardrobe

I started my initial foray into skincare when I was 19 years old. Back then, I had just completed my “A” levels (which is equivalent to high school for the rest of the world besides the UK) and I was looking for a part-time job until my first university semester started in August. A friend told me that she had started working part-time for … Read More Skincare Wardrobe

Review – Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster SPF 50+ PA ++++

I must admit that when it comes to beauty and skincare products, I’ve got a roving eye. I’m always on the constant lookout for the latest products with interesting ingredients or textures. I guess that’s why my cupboard is full of unopened products. I’ve only got one face and a limited amount of space to slather all of them at once. However the only … Read More Review – Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster SPF 50+ PA ++++

Review – Su:m37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick

I’ve heard about the Su:m37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick for quite some time. Ever since I saw it on Korea’s famous beauty show “Get It Beauty”, I’ve been lemming over it. Unfortunately as the brand wasn’t easily available in Singapore, I couldn’t manage to get my paws on it for the longest time. That was until I was shopping on iHerb for my usual … Read More Review – Su:m37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick

Review – PIXI Glow Tonic

Pixi Glow Tonic was one of the products that marked my entry into using acid toners. As you can see from the picture above, I’ve been using it for around 3 months now and I’m ready to share my thoughts on it with you. Let’s start by looking at its ingredient list, shall we? Ingredients Water/Aqua/Eau, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycolic Acid, Butylene Glycol, … Read More Review – PIXI Glow Tonic
