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…

Etude House Drawing Eye Brow

I first bought this product in Korea (hint, Etude House in KR gives tons of freebies!) Someone once remarked that Etude House is the cheaper alternative to Bobbi Brown in Korea because of its product range and emphasis on colours, rather than base makeup – food for thought, I guess. Product description This is a pencil type…

MISSHA Coloring Multi Stick

I’ll be honest and admit that I never really saw a use for blush – my skin condition can sometimes be so terrible that my cheeks already look red and flushed due to acne, or just dry skin in general. However, I was inspired by Pony’s Apricot look (I gush about this to everyone I talk…

LANEIGE Two Tone Lip Bar

I first noticed LANEIGE’s Two Tone Lip Bar in a K-drama (thanks product placement, aka PPL). Although it first appeared in Descendants of the Sun, I was probably too distracted by Song Joong-ki to realize it, and only paid attention to its placement in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. It was hard not to notice…
