Missha' First Treatment Essence Intensive

The Great Dupe: Missha’s The First Treatment Essence Intensive

A little while ago, I ordered a few things from W2Beauty that I’d had my eye on for a while. The main contender was a lil summin’ summin’ from Missha — The First Treatment Essence Intensive. I had seen this all over the blogosphere and, knowing that it was a really popular dupe for the SK-II Treatment Essence, I was keen to try it (at a much lower price tag than its luxury counterpart).  Continue reading


How To Be a Korean Skincare Addict in Malaysia

Ah, Korean skincare. That beautiful, wondrous, impossibly cute genre of products that promise to beautify, energise and basically fix your skin. How I love thee! When I lived in Korea, I became obsessed with the stuff, heading out every weekend to the sales (there was always one) and coming back with waaaay too much stuff to handle. I loved it all, and it loved me.

And then, I moved to Malaysia.  Continue reading


The Korean Beauty Product That Had Me Practically Hyperventilating

A little while ago, when I was yet again perusing the Korean beauty mecca that is 50 Shades of Snail, when I stumbled upon something that would change my life. And of course, lovely readers, that is the Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Essence Oil. Praise be to Jebus — this stuff is insane!  Continue reading


The Cure For Constantly Dry Lips In A Jar

Hey friends,

If you’ll know me, you’ll know that I love lip balm. Love it. The fact that I always seem to have dry lips… well, that’s just because I always misplace my lip balms (and also don’t drink enough water). But in theory, I love lip balm, and in physical terms, I love the way it makes my lips so juicy and plump and just divine! Is there any greater pleasure in this life, truly?  Continue reading


My Absolutely Ludicrous Korean Beauty Haul

Hey friends,

So a few weeks back, I decided to hop on a plane and make my way to Korea. I’d missed it for too long, and it was really getting the better of me. I’m always craving Korean food (in fact, I think I might have it for lunch today), I missed the kids and my friend, and just being in that vibrant, exciting country. There’s just something about it I can’t quite put my finger on, but I just feel so good when I’m in Korea. It must be love!  Continue reading

Stila's In The Light Eyeshadow Palette

My Very Favourite Eyeshadow Palette

Hey y’all,

Today I’m talking about something a tad bittersweet — the Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette. Why would this glorious thing of beauty be bittersweet, I hear you ask? Well, as much as I love and adore it (and am going to tell you why in a second), it’s also sadly no longer available. However, I figured that enough of you probably already have it in your stash and wanted to provide my thoughts anyway. Plus, it’s just so pretty to look at!

Two of My Favourite Shower Staples

Hey y’all,

If you know me at all, you’ll know that I am a hoarder of the nth degree. Especially when it comes to cosmetics… but it doesn’t always have to be. I have been known to hold onto primary school assignments, Christmas cards (they’re so lovely!), receipts, plane ticket stubs… all sorts of useless junk that clutters my space. Yes, it’s a problem. But the thing is, sometimes this clutter is absolutely amazing and worth every inch of space it consumes. And these two products definitely fall into the latter category.  Continue reading
