A Guide to Beauty and Skin Care Shopping in Japan

I just came from a short trip to 2-7° Osaka and before all the ruckus – including daily responsibilities, occasional (almost) quarter-life crises, and mild anxiety attacks – I’m dedicating a few entries to Japan, beginning with a guide to beauty and skin care shopping! Japanese drugstores are everywhere, and they’re overwhelming – to say the least. […]

Best of 2016: Beauty

My glorious education with everything beauty has grown the past few years but 2016 is something else; proof is the staggering collection of acrylic organizers overflowing with products on my top shelf. I’ve been producing more beauty and skin care content, and there is an unbelievable warmth in my heart! I’ve only been confident writing about something as […]

Many claim it’s the best make-up remover in the market. FYI, one is sold every 4.8 seconds. I’m done buying cheap foaming washes and facial cleansers that just don’t […]

Unboxing: Althea Korea (Innisfree)

I am finally a believer. There, I said it. I am a believer in Korean beauty and skincare. My past skincare routine was (almost) non-existent. I survived the Johnson’s Baby Soap (for my body and face *gasp*) treatment until graduating from university. Mind you, college – fuelled by caffeine while running on 3-6 hours of […]

My Everyday Make-up

Doing my make-up on the daily is a routine that keeps dull days worth living out. I spend extra time perfecting my face, and it makes me feel confidently beautiful…and sometimes, late. When I’m not trying out new make-up for the blog, these are my go-to products! Base Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm (P549, […]
