New In My Night Time Routine: Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Treatment

Since I’ve crossed the big 30th, I thought it’s time to add retinol to my skincare routine, after all, it’s one of the clinically proven anti-aging products that actually works. I’m completely onboard with the idea that anti-aging needs to start in your late 20s or at least early 30s, as you want your skin to keep its elasticity in its prime stage, right? Anyway, that has always been my believe.   So I picked up this Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Clinical Treatment from Paula’s…

5 Beauty Products on My Repurchase List

Let me start by saying I’m usually not loyal to brands, and I like love to try new things, something about a new beauty product just excites me like a kid gets his/her hands on the most yummy and prettiest candy, hence explains the piles of beauty products sitting in my drawers. But there are always exceptions, right? There are a few (very few) items, I will always repurchase without second thought, that’s serious commitment, that’s love!   Today, as I was going to make…

Omorovicza Refining Facial Polisher Review

After going through my Omorovicza rejuvenating night cream and falling completely in love with it, I decided to try out other products from this brand. Eventually, along with many other things, I picked up this pricy refining facial polisher when Cult Beauty was running a promotion last year. I’ve given it a good use over the past couple of months and have to say, I hate it that I love it. Like other Omorovicza products, this facial polisher has its signature scent, which to me…

A Massive Beauty Empties

My new year resolution of “buying less beauty products and using up more from the existing pile” is still going strong, cannot say I’m not proud of myself so far, I thought it’s only appropriate to post another empty, and this is quite a big one (so many that I could barely fit all of them into the photo frame). There are some skincare, some makeup, body care and hair care, having a sense of satisfaction just by writing this… Shu Uemura Green Tea Cleanser…

2015 Skincare Heroes

I’ve been taking a serious hibernation during the last month (and part of this month), the combination of holiday, business review & business planning and of course, my nature laziness, is dragging down my energy to write new posts.

The Odacité Serum Concentrate is Fabulous!

You can probably tell my excitement just by looking at the title. I’ve been utterly obsessed with facial oils since the beginning of this year, and after using Vintner’s daughter active botanical facial serum, which I have raved numerous time on this blog (you can read more about it here), I have tried many other oils in the market, but nothing really impressed me until this Odacité serum concentrate came into the picture.   I got the Odacité radiance effect serum concentrate (Green Tea +…

The Ultimate Deep Pore Cleansing Mask – Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask Review and Demo

      Doing mask is one of my favorite activities (if that’s considered an activity?) during the weekend. In fact, mask + lemon tea + Netflix is my receipt of ultimate relaxation, I know, I’m just such a granny!   Today, I would like to talk about the ultimate deep cleansing mask: the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask, which I came across about a year ago – my cousin got this for me while I was visiting New York (I still don’t know…
