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

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

Lioele Dr Ampoule Pore Clean & Tighten Serum

The Pore Clean & Tighten serum is one of two products in the Dr Ampoule range by Lioele, the other being the Super Moisture Hyaluronic Acid serum intended for night use to plump up the skin. This product is designed for use during the day, to help control sebum production using zinc and witch hazel, and to reduce pore size. The description from Lioele says it can be used, Continue reading

Tony Moly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack

This face mask from Tony Moly is said to whiten and brighten the skin using tomato-extracted ingredients- as you can tell from the super cute packaging in the shape of a tomato! The little jar comes with 80g of a thick, white, product; similar in consistency and function to the Mario Badescu Whitening Mask, if you’ve tried that. It comes with a little spatula too for hygienic Continue reading

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Watery Cheek Blush

#2 – Peach Pink

As this has been my first post in a while (thanks, finals!) I thought I’d talk about one of my favourite new products from Korea. The Aqua Petit Jelly BB cream is a cult favourite, so I was curious to see if the blush would be as good. This is available in 5 different shades, and I chose a kind of coral-pink colour. It turns out it’s one of the prettiest and most natural-looking blushes Continue reading

Innisfree Green Tea Mineral Mist

This product is one of many in innisfree’s Green Tea skincare range, and is available in several different sizes. I love using face mists and setting sprays for taking away the powdery look that freshly-applied make-up can sometimes leave, for increasing the durability of make-up, or simply to refresh my face in the summertime. This face mist is said to be formulated Continue reading
