Etude House Green Tea Nose Patch

I constantly battle blackheads and huge pores, alongside oily skin. I have been using Bioré Pore Pack Black to remove my stubborn (and rampant) blackheads since years ago, but as with all Etude House products, they are so affordable that I decided to give their nose patch a try when my recent Bioré pack was…

Lancôme L’ Absolu Rouge

My first review of a non K-beauty product goes to Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge! I once read somewhere that Lancôme is one of the top beauty brands that Koreans love to use, together with other names such as YSL and Estee Lauder. Lancôme L’Absolu is a great example of Koreans’ love for the brand. Kim Go-eun…

The odbo BB Cream

You have probably never heard of the brand The odbo before, unless you have gone on tour packages in Korea. Neither did I know this Korean brand existed until last December.

Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Treatment

I bought this in Korea, and I suspect that you can’t buy the exact same product in Singapore, because I can’t find it on the Singapore website. There are a few alternatives, but I’m not entirely sure if they work the same as this product. As a bit of background, I have thin, wavy hair…

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

As a fan of sheet masks for their convenience and how good they immediately make my skin feels, I had my fair share of doubts about wash-off masks when I got a sample of  this with my Innisfree membership (go sign up if you haven’t!) Frankly, it’s not often that I see very enthusiastic reviews about…
