My primary goal with this blog is to discover great products for all around full body care and personal hygiene, and that includes finding fun ways to take care of my teeth. The most obvious thing to go for was to find toothpaste that wasn’t just some variation of ‘mint’ flavor. How lucky I was then to find a brand that carries a total of 7 different flavors (though only 5 of those could really be classified as non-mint), all of which can be bought together in a sample set.
I first heard of Marvis toothpaste when Tracy spoke about using the Jasmin flavor on the Snailcast. I was incredibly intrigued by a floral flavored toothpaste, and once I saw the variety of unique flavors Marvis carries I decided I needed to try all of them. Obviously I had to find out for myself which one is best. You know how it is.
I have yet to find a second step cleanser that I am absolutely in love with. I don’t expect a cleansing product to perform miracles, but I want them to be interesting and fun to use. I got curious about the powder cleanser format after seeing a few reviews of Tosowoong’s Enzyme Powder Wash. Having a cleanser in a dry form seems extremely handy for travelling, so I picked one up to see if it would suit my needs.
Skinfood is always one of the first brands to come up in a discussion of wash-off masks. Their sugar scrubs and rice mask are frequently mentioned as favorites for physical exfoliation. After they announced a release of 6 new wash-off masks, I wanted to try some out to see if they lived up to Skinfood’s reputation.
This is the first post in multi-part series I’m planning about a variety of rosacea treatments that I’ve tried. I plan to give in depth details on each treatment, what they do and why they can work for some cases of rosacea, as well as my own personal experience with each and whether or not each treatment made a difference in my condition. Some posts will contain pictures of my skin to show my progress with that particular treatment. Continue reading “Rosacea Treatment Series Part 1 – My Rosacea”→
This was another well-loved item from Innisfree’s Green Tea line that I was curious about. The Green Tea Balancing Lotion as well as the Green Tea Seed Serum (reviewed) are both extremely popular in the Asian Beauty community. I love green tea as a skin care ingredient, so I needed to see for myself if my skin would respond as well as everyone else’s seems to.
In general, I’m not much for cutesy packaging. Ruffles, bows, kitten pictures, and pastel colours don’t do a whole lot for me. That being said, I’m a huge sucker for things that are made to look like other things, and I have no words to describe why they make me so happy. They just do.
Ever since I found out that Tony Moly has a line of products that have fruit-shaped packaging, I’ve made it my mission to collect them. I have near-to-zero interest in their effectiveness as beauty products, I just want a collection of creams on my desk that looks like a fruit bowl. The thought of it gives me so much joy, I can’t even.
Vitamin C is one of my favorite skincare powerhouse ingredients. It’s one that has been well studied, and so its benefits are well known and actually backed up with scientific evidence. I consider a vitamin C product to be absolutely essential to my skincare routine because the benefits are far too good to pass up.
