Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense

Out of all the AMOREPACIFIC brands, my favourite brand is probably Mamonde. I love its branding, its ambassador (Park Shin Hye, a staple of all modern Korean idol dramas), and its usage of flowers. I was very excited when it first arrived in Singapore, and even happier to find Mamonde products sold in Korea at…

Etude House Play 101 Color Contour Duo Stick

Etude House jumped on board this ship a little late as compared to their counterparts, but nonetheless, it was heavily promoted some time back (before their more recent ones like My Dear Darling Water Gel Tint) by Pony, so I thought I ought to give this a try. Initially, I wanted to get the mint/blue combination because…

banila co. Prime Primer Hydrating

I only started using primer recently, after I was advised to do so due to my dry skin (which in turn led to excess oil production and clogged pores). I wasn’t very sure which primer would be good, but I had heard great reviews of banila co.’s primers. When I went to Korea, one of…

Innisfree Camellia Essential Hair Oil Serum

I bought this because I needed a hair product to save my dry and frizzy hair in the unforgiving Korean summer weather, as well as my previous good experience with other products in this line – the Camellia Essential Hair Treatment. Product description Camellia essential hair oil serum that creates silky hair 1. Double treatment…

Etude House Play Color Eyes Juice Bar

Besides lipsticks, I’m also a huge fan of eyeshadow palettes because of the multiple colour combinations you can mix and match to make your eyes shine. Some of my favourite ones are from Etude House, in part due to the affordability, as well as the lovely palette colours. This was my first ever eyeshadow palette, and…

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…

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. Apparently, even the Koreans themselves have never heard of it, because it’s a brand targeted at tourists. It does sound a tad dubious to…

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…

moonshot – lipfeat

I knew this brand as the cosmetic brand by YG Entertainment, which gave us Kpop legends like BIGBANG and 2NE1, but I had no idea whether their products were as good as their artistes (haha). I also first saw their products on social media, which speaks a lot about their branding as a cosmetic brand…

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…

Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam

I first bought this product in Jeju, Korea. It’s not exactly one of their star product lines (think Jeju Orchid, Green Tea and Volcanic Pore Clay Mask) and I couldn’t remember exactly why I chose this over, say, the Green Tea Facial Foam. Maybe I thought that my face was in dire trouble and needed help…

Etude House Precious Minerals BB Cream (Blooming Fit)

It hardly comes as a surprise that I use so many Etude House products, considering how affordable and good-quality they are, compared to a lot of other brands out there in the market. I’m not even a huge fan of the pink, princessy stuff which they brand themselves with, yet here I am singing praises…
