Holika Holika, one of my current hot brands from Korea has newish range of Sleeping Masks (what is a sleeping mask?) based on the power of Honey, honey. Sleeping packs are worn throughout the night as you sleep and the idea is that you can wake up in the morning and look like you’re 10 years younger…or there abouts. Kitty is demonstrating how to sleep: Holika Holika’s Honey Sleeping Pack comes in 3 variations’ Canola, […]
Innisfree is a Korean brand with a huge range of products all with a ‘natural’ edge. I haven’t tried that much from the range purely because other brands have proved more appealing so far. I love multi use products so bought these two tints in Garden Balsam (Coral) and Azalea (Hot Pink). There is also a shade called Camelia which is more of a reddish rose: These have a gel type texture, thicker than Benefit’s […]
Skinfood make up is hit and miss, trust me, and I’ve never though much of their lip products. When I spotted these super cute, fairly new-ish lipstick range called Vita Tok I just had to buy a few to try cos I like the name. Vita TOK. TOK. TOKS! TOCKS! You know like: Don’t think I have some weird animal fetish now, will you? But you gotta love cute tocks. Anyway, back to lipstick…. Skinfood […]
If you ask me, the name Aubergine is far more apt for the purple vegetable than Eggplant. After all, it’s got nothing to do with eggs. Nevertheless, Skinfood’s product names tend to err more on the side of the transatlantic so for the purposes of this review, this is Skinfood’s Eggplant Eyebrow Gel Mascara & Fixer. See how the ends look like breasts eggplants? This 2 step eyebrow product is supposed to last for 24 […]
I keep dabbling with Asian hair care and styling products, and I have to say overall I am impressed. Most of the Korean and Japanese hair care I have tried so far tends to be quite light finish – in other words, no crunchies, and no flakies. I bought this Etude House Moist Hair Mist because I am suitably frizzy and dry around the barnet area. I figured this could be one of those top […]
So the story goes that I saw this Etude House Collagen Moistfull massage thing (there’s a whole range of skincare called Moistfull which doesn’t really make sense) in a HUGE tub and I thought, I don’t know what it is, but I want it because you get loads of it. A bit like a visit to the buffet. Anyway, so I’ve had this for a month or two and didn’t know what to do with it. […]
I’ve had issues with blackheads for a while, mainly over my nose areas but sometimes my chin. It’s a real pain always having to use things like masks and pore strips! With Asian brands, you’ll find tons of products specifically created to deal with the blackhead problem, so perhaps some girls are prone to this. I can imagine in Asia, where it is hot and humid people are more likely to sweat and get blocked […]
The temperature here has been rising, so people are in better moods and generally enjoying the sun. The fake tan brigade has been out in force and the men are showing off their red lobster sun burns off, and the women are wearing strappy dresses sans a bra. Two words ladies – strapless bra. Or clear bra straps. Anything but two wobbly melons accosting me whilst I am innocently trying to browse for indigestion tablets.
