MaxiMask Revitalizing Eye Masks

I'm a true convert when it comes to hydrogel eye patches. The first box I purchased, I just didn't get it. I used them sparingly, and as it's rare for eye products to do anything immediately, my impatient self got annoyed with the lack of results, and I forgot about them for a while. Then, … Continue reading MaxiMask Revitalizing Eye Masks

Huxley Grab Water: more than a ridiculous-sounding name?

A brave new world of skincare exploded onto the internet sometime last year. Huxley, Korean cult favourite, is seemingly now everywhere when it comes to the K-beauty world. It's popping up in shop after shop, these days. New brands spring up all the time though. New brands invade our screens for a while, then disappear, … Continue reading Huxley Grab Water: more than a ridiculous-sounding name?

Unboxing Althea – a Kbeauty shopping experience

Now that I live in Spain again, I search endlessly on the internet for shopping services and online stores that will somewhat fulfil the beauty 24/7 hole that Korea left in my heart. And my wallet. In some ways it's probably good that I'm back, because when you have an Olive Young on every corner, … Continue reading Unboxing Althea – a Kbeauty shopping experience

Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patches

I am no stranger to the world of hydrogel eye patches. They were a skincare product that took me a while to come round to - I didn't really see much point in them. I used them a couple of times a week, and didn't see any difference in my tired, puffy eyes. However, since … Continue reading Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patches

Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask

I don't particularly believe that gold does anything for the skin, despite it appearing as an ingredient in a fair few masks right now on the market...but I do believe in skincare fun, and I really liked the idea of resembling King Midas during a masking experience. A face full of gold? Yes please. I … Continue reading Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask

Swanicoco Revol Ampoule Whitening

Swanicoco is a Korean company that may seem to have exploded onto screens recently, but in fact has been steadily growing in Korea since their creation in 2005, where they put themselves onto the market selling a range of natural herb soaps. Keeping in the same vein of natural cosmetics, they have expanded their range … Continue reading Swanicoco Revol Ampoule Whitening

Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Serum

Thank You Farmer was always an intriguing brand for me. Living in Korea, you'd expect to be able to get your hands on every single brand under the sun, in the blink of an eye, but sadly that was not the case. I had to wait until a trip to Seoul before I could finally … Continue reading Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Serum

CosRX PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream

Ok, first things first. This cream probably doesn't need a prelude of any kind. The hype that surrounds the CosRX PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream precedes itself - CosRX barely needed to do any marketing at all, considering as soon as a new product is announced both Reddit and Instagram lose their marbles and start … Continue reading CosRX PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream

23.5N Gel Masks – Rice Soothing, Oriental Tea Balancing

23.5N pretty much exploded onto my Instagram in 2016, thanks to Beautibi in the US stocking them. I lived in Korea at the time, so getting my grabby little hands on Taiwanese products wasn't as simple as you might think - and now I've moved back to Europe I pretty much put it out my … Continue reading 23.5N Gel Masks – Rice Soothing, Oriental Tea Balancing

Splash Masks (or Products You Didn’t Really Need But Now You Want pt. 1)

Sometimes in skincare you see a pair of words that don't really go together, but you accept it and move on because it's just skincare and sometimes it does odd things like that. Then you sit down and think 'Hang on, really? A mask? That you splash? But...masks STAY on the face, don't they? That's … Continue reading Splash Masks (or Products You Didn’t Really Need But Now You Want pt. 1)
