REVIEW: LUSH Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly

lush santa's belly shower jelly

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas..πŸŽ„”. Yes, 2017 is coming to a close and it has been a really good year. To get into the spirits of things I popped out my Lush shower jelly, aptly named Santa’s Belly.

While I’m progressively working through my stash, the product I have is not of the latest packaging. The newest Santa’s Belly is resembling a bit like a Pokeball, though I know it’s meant to look like Santa’s signature costume with the belt.

Did I enjoy it? Yes. Will I want more of this? Why, yes!

REVIEW: Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Moisturising (Red box)

Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Red

Today I’m going to talk about soap. Specifically, the Cow Brand Beauty Soap Kyoshinsha. The one I have is the red box, which is extra moisturising and costs a little bit more than the blue box, which is the regular formula.

I’ve long heard accolades about this bar soap, of it being gentle, no frills and generally good for your skin. Another perk was the price, the soap is inexpensive when compared to counterparts like shower foams and gels.

In short, after using the product for about 2 months, I’m a fan. I hoarded half a dozen of this from my recent trip back to Tokyo.

REVIEW: Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser

Hi Everyone! It’s been a whirlwind in October. I travelled a bit, turned one year older, nursed a flu/cough, embarked on some side projects, and was busy with work.

I finally found some downtime today to write about the Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser I purchased a while back. While it’s still good to use, I’m not entirely sure if the packaging is relevant.

Regardless, please read on if you’re interested to know what I felt about this item.Β  πŸ™‚

Hi Everyone! I recently had the pleasure of receiving Althea’s newest Petal Velvet Powder in the mail. Needless to say, Althea has been my favourite place to shop in 2017 and possibly more years to come.

It’s exciting to see how Althea has expanded and foraying into producing their own unique line of cosmetics. Debuting from the brand, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder is a micro fine loose powder that minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines, and at the same time controls sebum.

Hello everyone! Today’s spotlight item isΒ the recent Althea #18 box – the Trouble Breaker box

I was approached by the good people of Althea to review this box of carefully curated items which tackle the issue of blemishes. There are a total of 6 products in this set, and all are full retail sized. Call it providence, but the timing of this review couldn’t have come better. My complexion was not at it’s best due to a recent span of late nights; and these items were lifesavers.

Personally I feel these boxes are packed full of value – my recent favourite was the green and yellow box.

REVIEW: Koelf Petitfee Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydro Gel Eye Patch

Happy Friday! Today’s review is on the Koelf Petitfee Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch, whichΒ 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

innisfree-super-volcanic-pore-clay-mask-1

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 experienceΒ in the comments section. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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.
