All Mask Story Pore Prestige Korean sheet face mask review

It’s been a while since I did my last beauty post. Did you think I’d given up writing them? 🙂 I haven’t but to provide some structure for my blog, they’ll only be published on Saturdays. So if you’re just interested in craft & making, you can tune  me out over the weekends 🙂 (I… Read more »

Jung Saem Mool Essential Skin Nuder CC SPF 50+ PA+++

The name of this product is a little confusing. Despite having the word CC in it, it’s not a CC or BB but rather a make-up base that replaces sunblock. I hate having many layers of make up on my face so the fact that we could skip sunscreen was a huge plus for this… Read more »

MediHeal Hair Steam Pack

  If you’ve ever watched a Korean drama, you’ve seen that all the females leads- even the “ugly” ones (before the transformation)- have amazing hair, so silky it reflects light . Which is why I bought 2 types of hair masks when I was in Seoul over New Year: the cute sheep one by MediHeal you… Read more »

Makeover Monday: Baviphat Apple AC Therapy Sleeping Mask

This is the mask (for troubled skin) that started my love affair with Korea & Korean skincare. I first visited Korea for a childhood friend’s wedding, suffering from TERRIBLE skin. In Myeong Dong, I picked up an eyeliner from Baviphat and they gave me a sample of this. (You get sample sachets or, if you’re… Read more »

Makeover Monday: Innisfree eco safety perfect sunblock SPF 50+ PA +++ 50 ml

Having been left so let down by the Sisley Youth Protector, I thought I’d do a review on a sunblock that is now only a fraction of the price- almost 5% in fact!- at £6.50, this Innisfree sun cream is a real bargain. Innisfree is my very favourite Korean skincare brand. It’s affordable and tries to… Read more »

Makeover Monday: Face Shop Mini Pet Perfume Hand Cream

This product is one of the reasons girls go crazy for Korean products. They’re just so cute, aren’t they?! Small enough to pop into your bag, and kawaii enough to make a great gift! Inexpensive too! When I used to sell Korean products, this was my bestseller- I sold 1000s for Christmas! Yay!! 🙂 I’m going to… Read more »

Makeover Monday: Slimy Snail Skincare

I actually first blogged about snail skincare in 2011. However, that was when escargot skincare- made with snail slime extract (wwww..) – was the latest “miracle” product in Korea. A few years on, I am just starting to see articles about snail skincare in international magazines, so I thought it may be time for a… Read more »

Leaders Insolution Aquaringer skin clinic mask

What a name! Aquaringer makes me think of ringworm?! Added to the fact I’ve never heard of the Korean brand Leaders, I normally wouldn’t pick this mask sheet up- it looks just a little dodgy! However, it was recommended by my Korean friend, E, and we all know what good skin Koreans have! I swear,… Read more »
