Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

A while back I purchased this travel size set and I've used quite a few times in the past year. Korres is a Greek Pharmacy brand and I do like their skincare and bath products though I haven't tried a lot before. This set was also a good opportunity to try a bunch of things. Korres Holiday in Greece Kit comes with a shampoo, 2 showergels, 1 body butter and 1 body milk. I do wish there was a conditioner instead of 2 shower gels though. I'm going to do mini reviews of…Read more
Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

I love cleansing oils! It's a cleanser and makeup remover in one and it works brilliantly. For the longest time I was using the Origins Clean Energy Gentle Cleansing Oil and I eventually wanted to try something different. I had heard a lot of praises about the Shu Uemura one and decided to get it. While this was an expensive purchase, it's lasted me for so long and it's just the perfect cleansing oil. Before I review, I have to apologize for the appalling photos in this post. I'd already used up and thrown away…Read more
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil

Hey guys! For a change, here's a skincare post. I've always wanted to try products from Nuxe, so I ended up getting this multi usage oil and their lip balm. I'm liking both! NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil, much like the name is a kind of oil you can use for different purposes. It's a thin consistency of yellow coloured oil which smells just amazing. The scent is quite strong with a jasmine, vanilla floral fragrance which is somehow very balanced, it's just lovely. I use this in a lot of ways…Read more
La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Riche

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Riche

Hey guys! Time for a skincare review! You might have spotted this in a few favourites and in my travel makeup post. I've loved products from La Roche-Posay for a long time now. I always have the Effaclar AI on me and I've tried their moisturizers a very long time ago (before I started this blog). I was looking for a light moisturizer that I can carry around with me and I found this on sale at Escentual.com. La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Riche belongs to their hydration line. I was drawn to the…Read more
August 2014 Favourites

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles ( mine…Read more
EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

Time to review the cutest lip balm on the block. Pretty sure at some point you might have come across these and your inner child went "squeeeeee". Well, it did happen to me and I rightly purchased the EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet. The pink chubby ball is attractive in itself but thankfully, it works incredibly well too. Inside you have a dome shaped lip balm which is off white in colour and smells like strawberries. If that isn't enough for you, the formula is darn good as well. I like to…Read more
Avene Rebalancing Soothing Emulsion

Avene Rebalancing Soothing Emulsion

I've written about this so many times in favourites and other posts, it's high time I reviewed this product. It's pretty much over now! After using the Avene Gentle Toner I was really impressed and wanted to try more from the brand. I was looking for a light moisturizer that I can carry in my purse and this seemed to be a good fit. Avene Rebalancing Soothing Emulsion is a really confusing name which doesn't say a lot but it's basically a light moisturizer. This is perfect for people with oily or combination…Read more
Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

You might look at this and think it kind of looks similar to Soap & Glory. That's what I thought when I across Dirty Works. Same retro wit product lines but Dirty Works is like the less expensive sister of Soap & Glory. I came across the range on MedPlusBeauty eons ago and I bought a couple of the products. Clearly, I was in my blogger exploring mood. The Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask  is basically a face mask and a scrub. The scrub part is something I realised after buying it.…Read more
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

For the longest time, sunscreen (or rather it's application) has always been something I knew I should use but never did. Even in school my skin could react to extreme exposure and those were telling signs that I needed to take care of my skin. I guess my knowledge and interest about such things improved when I started reading beauty blogs and ultimately I could no longer put it off. I had used a few sunscreens before this and I hated the experience. It made me look shiny, or there was a whitecast,…Read more
Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
