Holika Holika Baby Silky Foot Mask

I found this foot peeling mask from Holika Holika whilst looking for a cheaper alternative to the classic BabyFoot. For those who don’t know the concept, it’s basically a gel mask which you apply to your feet, wash off, and about a week later your feet begin literally ‘peeling’ layers of dead skin, leaving you eventually with beautifully soft feet. The process itself is a bit gross, but the Continue reading

Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder

This is the second version of this innisfree powder that I’ve tried, if you’d like to read my review of the compact edition you can find it here. Since I loved the other one so much I had to try this one too, and I’ve got through 2 of this No Sebum Mineral Powder in about the past 9 months or so. It’s a tiny pot, containing 5g of product as opposed to 8.5g in the compact, but I find Continue reading

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

This mask is one of those products which gets rave reviews so of course I had to try it out. It’s formulated with some sort of mineral which comes from the solidified lava of volcanic eruptions on Jeju island in South Korea, said to be highly effective at absorbing excess oil and clearing out pores. The mask is good value for money- it costs about £8-£9 but it comes in a very generously Continue reading

The Face Shop Lovely Me:Ex Cushion Blush

Shade #1 – Rose Cushion
This adorable powder blush from The Face Shop is available in 5 different shades: rose, coral, plum, pink and peach, all of which look beautiful so it was difficult to buy just one! The rose version looks bright in the box, but can be applied lightly for a more sheer effect, and it’s a great colour for all skin tones. The packaging is obviously one of the main things that drew me to this Continue reading

Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream

Shade #21 – Light Beige
I originally bought this BB cream for my mum, who was looking for some light coverage with a high SPF, but I’ve started ‘borrowing’ it more and more as I’ve realised how good it actually is. It comes in 3 shades and this is the one in the middle, although it is still is a pretty fair shade even for someone like me who is pale. This is common with many Korean BB creams which Continue reading

Holika Holika Dazzling Sunshine Make Up Sun Cream

SPF 45 PA+++

Summer may be fast diminishing in England but I’m travelling in Europe at the moment and it’s still sunny enough that I need a high SPF! Of course, you should really use sun protection on daily basis, regardless of the weather. I’ve been using this sun cream for a few months now and it has both positive and negative features. I like that it offers broad spectrum protection from both  Continue reading

Etude House I Need You Lemon Face Mask

This sheet mask is part of the ‘I Need You’ range from Étude House, a huge collection of 20 different varieties for all types of skin needs. I picked the lemon version as it sounded refreshing, it contains vitamin C, and the properties of lemon are known to brighten up the skin tone. It works much the same as every facial sheet mask: each packet contains one use, you Continue reading

Aritaum Modi Nail Quick Dryer

As someone who has their nails painted 99% of the time, I bought this product in the hope it would be a great addition to my manicure routine. It promises to rapidly decrease the length of drying time of freshly painted nails, whilst ensuring no smudging from a brush like you might get with a traditional top coat. I actually really like the concept of the pipette- it allows you to drop the Continue reading

Tony Moly Delight Tony Tint

Shade #1 – Cherry Pink

This lip stain from Tony Moly comes in 3 different shades, the other 2 being a bright red and an orange colour. I chose the pink shade thinking it might be the most natural-looking! The product is labelled as a ‘tint’, however it really is more of a stain as once you have this product on, it is difficult to take off as it really does stain the skin.To apply, you should first exfoliate and apply lip Continue reading

Tony Moly Cats Wink Powder

Shade #1 – Clear Skin

Another product with adorable packaging from Tony Moly, this face powder comes in a compact in the shape of a cat’s face and is a must-have for any feline-lover. However, it isn’t just a gimmick, as this is actually a very good product. The compact comes with a make-up sponge and a pretty generously-sized mirror, which is ideal for application on the go. Cats Wink Continue reading
