The High-performance Body Cream

Hmm, is high-performance body cream even a thing? Well, that’s a very legitimate question, I would have the exact same reaction reading the title about a month ago, even though let’s be honest, a good body cream is not necessarily that easy to come across – it needs to smell good so you feel it’s worth the effort to put on, moisturizing enough yet without being sticky. My answer to this question has completely changed, when I finally started testing the Ameliorate transforming body cream…

I Tested 4 New Cleansers, and Here Are My Thoughts

My Favorite Japanese Drugstore Beauty Picks

I’ve had two weeks of super vacation in Tokyo recently, which was a much needed break mentally and physically. As part of the vacation, I obviously did a lot of beauty shoppings (dah, is anyone surprised?). However, taking in the lessons I have learned from previous trips, I have focused more on stocking up my favourite products, rather than going all out and buying up everything that’s new. Looking at the large pile of products I hauled throughout the two weeks, they are all from…
