Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

I can’t believe that a year has gone by just like that! I started blogging back in April this year and it had been 9 months since then! To be honest, I’ve never thought that I could persevere for so long since I’m so busy with a full time job and raising a precocious 3-year old. But I’m happy and grateful that I’ve started … Read More Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Disrupting Traditional Florist Industry in Singapore – A Better Florist

The team behind “A Better Florist” reached out to me and asked if I’m interested in reviewing their flower bouquets.

They source directly from flower … Read More Disrupting Traditional Florist Industry in Singapore – A Better Florist

Growing Old is a Wonderful and Privileged Experience and You Should Not Be Afraid

Today I’m not going to talk about product reviews. Today I would like to talk about ageing, or more precisely the beauty of ageing. Recently I saw this video that Allure produced on “Dispelling Beauty Myths: Aging With Grace” and it spoke to me so much that I needed to write it down and record how I felt while watching it. Below is the … Read More Growing Old is a Wonderful and Privileged Experience and You Should Not Be Afraid

Cult Beauty Summer 2017 Goody Bag

Around 2 months ago back in June, Cult Beauty had a deal in which if you spend £110 on their website, you'll get a goody bag worth over £170. Like the good sucker that I am, I immediately bought some of Dr Dennis Gross' products which I've been lemming at for months and months but never bought due to their price just to try … Read More Cult Beauty Summer 2017 Goody Bag

Favourite OSTs from Japanese Animes

Hi guys! Today I would like to share with you some of my favourite OSTs from the Japanese Animes which I've watched. Most of these animes are not recent ones but then I don't have much time to watch animes these days. Hope that you'll enjoy them! This OST is from one of the very first "serious" anime that I watched when I was 13 … Read More Favourite OSTs from Japanese Animes

Japanese Drama OSTs That I Grew Up With

Ok, this post is totally unrelated to beauty or skincare stuff. I was just listening to some OST for Japanese Dramas of the 90s and early 00s and wanted to share some of my favourite songs with you guys. Way before the craze over Korean Pop (K-Pop) or Korean Dramas (K-Dramas), Japanese Pop Groups and Japanese Dramas were the flavour de rigeur. I grew … Read More Japanese Drama OSTs That I Grew Up With

Thoughts on Korean Drama – Queen of the Ring

This post must feel pretty random to you guys since this blog is a beauty and skincare blog and not a Korean Drama blog like Dramabeans. But I’ve just finished watching this drama and have some thoughts on it which I would like to share with you. Queen of the Ring is a 6-episode South Korean television drama starring Kim Seul-gi and Ahn Hyo-seop. … Read More Thoughts on Korean Drama – Queen of the Ring

Just how deep do skincare products penetrate your skin?

Hi guys! Today I’m going to talk about one question which I was always curious about and that is the question on this blog post – just how deep do skincare products penetrate your skin? And how does that translate to the products which you choose to apply to your skin? I’m sure that you would remember reading some articles stating that about 60% … Read More Just how deep do skincare products penetrate your skin?

My Experiment with Differin 0.1% + Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%

Before I decided to write this post, I’ve actually been debating with myself on whether I should even start writing this. The thing is that I’ve tried to use both products (the Differin 0.1% gel and the¬†Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%) in a way that’s never been indicated on the product packaging or its leaflet so it’s kind of an unorthodox method of using them. However, … Read More My Experiment with Differin 0.1% + Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%

My Pet Peeves in the Skincare & Cosmetics Industry

I’ve been dabbling in the world of skincare since I was 13 years old but only got into a proper skincare routine when I was 19 years old. Now that I’m 32 years old, I must say that I have used quite a fair bit of skincare products throughout my 13 years in experimenting with my skin and finding out about what my skin … Read More My Pet Peeves in the Skincare & Cosmetics Industry

Should you be using face oils?

The rise of the green beauty movement has meant an increase in the usage of face oils for the consumers. It has been said that since oils have no fillers or other “useless chemicals”, it is better for the skin since it is full of pure nutritive goodness. Many people have replaced their moisturisers and serums with exclusively facial oils. Recently, however there has … Read More Should you be using face oils?

Why did I start a beauty blog?

The notion of starting a blog came while I was searching for reviews of some skincare products a few years ago. Blog after blog came up on Google but most of them were just poorly copy and pasted press release statements with no original opinions on what the product actually did or did not do for them. Worse still, I can’t see the product ingredients … Read More Why did I start a beauty blog?
