REVIEW: Koelf Petitfee Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydro Gel Eye Patch

petitfee ruby bulgarian rose hyydrogel eye mask 1

Happy Friday! Today’s review is on the Koelf Petitfee Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch, which I find handy for tired eyes.

I purchased this off Althea a couple of weeks back out of curiosity, and also partly because I’m going through a “rose- based” product phase now. It all started with the rose variant of the megurism steam eye mask I bought.

Needless to say, this is my current go-to item for lazy days.

REVIEW: Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask


Hey everyone, how’s it going? I had an order arrive from Althea last week, and today’s review is on the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask.

I love clay masks, primarily because they mostly help control sebum secretion and my skin appears to be more radiant/whitened after usage. (I don’t know if this is a placebo effect though.) Apparently this version of the mask is different from the Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask, so if you have tried both please share with me your experience in the comments section. 🙂

Lastly, I will be sharing my referral code for Althea. Yay to free credits, Althea has steadily become my favourite K-beauty spot.

Standard new member sign ups will receive SGD$20 in welcome credits. If you sign up using the referral on my sidebar –> you get SGD$5 extra, making it a total of SGD$25! Don’t miss out. 🙂

To make things sweeter, Althea is having a 15% off Innisfree event now, each order will come with a deluxe green tea balancing sample kit (while stocks last). You can thank me later.

Alright, now on to the mask review!

REVIEW: Vichy Laboratories SkinSOS Volcanic Mask Trio

vichy SOS volcanic mask trio

HAPPY CNY everyone! I wasn’t planning on reviewing anything since I’ve been down with a nasty flu/cough bug for the past week, but on a last ditch effort to buy some Decofam (cough syrup) at Unity, I came across these. Sick or not, I was compelled to try them.

Reason(s) being:

  1. Its a trio set from Vichy (and granted, Vichy items are not the cheapest around)
  2. I needed a pick-me-up from constantly stuffing my nose with facial tissues, not to mention the incessant hacking cough 😦

Hit “continue reading” to see what I thought of these mini masks. Also, I took a shot at upping my product photo game, let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement! 🙂

REVIEW: Heidi’s 2016 Beauty Picks!


Season’s greetings everyone!

It has been a while since I last posted, and today I thought: why not share with everyone my favourite beauty items in 2016?

You can call it a year in review (beauty/skincare wise), and if some of you are still looking for that last minute Christmas gift, maybe this post can be of some help.

All these products are relatively inexpensive and work well – in my humble opinion. I will be talking briefly about my thoughts and usage experience with them, hopefully it helps if you are considering to try some of these items.

Hi people! I’m back from Tokyo (still wishing I’m there now), and was pleasantly surprised to receive a package from the folks from E’siwia. If you read about my experience at Giftopia, you may have noticed that there was a mention of a company which sells snail serum sheet masks.

E’siwia has been so kind to send me a box of their best selling snail serum masks for reviewing purposes.

REVIEW: SANA Pore Putty Pore Flat Veil (Face Primer)

SANA Pore Putty - Face primer

Hi everyone, I had wanted to do Part 2 swatches of my new colourpop glosses but the rain wasn’t having any of it. And since I can’t take half-decent photos, today’s review will be on the SANA Poreputty Pore Flat Veil. Otherwise known as a mattifying face primer which boasts of erasing visible pores.

From what I can make out from the packaging and chinese text, I’m going to go on a large tangent and say this product serves to diminish large pores, has SPF, and is to be used as a base before foundation. Well it’s a Cosme ranking product so I didn’t need much persuasion to buy it.

Where did I buy it? Tokyo, in fact any leading drugstore there will carry it.

Read on for the overall experience 🙂

REVIEW: Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish (Combination/Oily Skin)

Holika Holika Real Skin Finish

Today’s photos are a little on the dark side (haha, so punny), since it’s pouring out now as I am writing this post.

Before I continue on the review, I wanted to share that my hamster had 6 little ones on Mother’s Day. How apt right ❤ It came as a surprise because I thought she was a “he” until she popped. (Sorry about that Junior)

So, today’s review is on the Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish face primer. There are 2 formulas and I purchased the one for combination/oily complexions.
