Showing posts from 2016

Thank you 2016 | Thank YOU for a magical year

A lil bit something different from my usual blog posts today. It is only 2 days until 2017. 2016 pass by like a wind. I thought I only enrolled college 2 weeks ago when it actually happened last. End of the year, the time of the year where we look back on the things that have happened this year.
2016 to me is like....truly surprising. Like opening a treasure chest full of gems. Delighting. The gems did not come literally in Rubies or Sapphires. But it came in form of open opportunities, chances, risks, happiness, joy, friendships, supports, personal growths and many happy things. Ofcourse, there were some obstacles too along the way.
My life is not a fairytale.
I remembered in my blog post earlier this year (or end of 2015) that my wish and pray for the new year 2016 was to be happy. Two days to end of 2016, I am concluding that the 'happy' that I prayed for has been answered. I am happier in 2016 than I am in 2015.
The biggest change and step that I took this year was public…

Alive Lab Multi Ice Cream Review | Ice-Cream Cream?!

No, it is not an ice-cream cream. Though I wish it was.

안녕하세요/Hello~ I hope everyone had a splendid Christmas! I had a family gathering/birthday celebration (not Christmas) yesterday and I enjoyed stuffing on the foodssssssss, especially the smoked bbq lamb, nyumsssss. I love it when the taste of the bbq sauce is really present and the lamb is tender delicious and soft.... I want it now again.
Last week I received a cute package from Alive Lab, a Korean brand that I never heard of before until they approached me. They contacted me on Instagram DM and asked if I wanted to review their products. I love exploring new beauty products so of course I accepted the kind offer. Thank you for the opportunity to try out your products, Alive Lab! ^-^

Purpletale Setting the Scene Treatment Essence Review | A Fairy Tale Skincare

Hello, Lovelies! I am not sure if you remember but I mentioned about this Fairy Tale-like brand, Purpletale in two of my blog posts before.

Neulii Tea Tree BHA Blemish Control Serum vs Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol | Comparison Review

Hello, People! I am doing another comparison post for all of you. The reason why I am doing this is because these two products are ALMOST SIMILAR to each other, they have alot of similarities but please keep in mind that they are NOT EXACTLY the same. They both have similar functions and ingredients though they are not the same type of product to start with (eg. Cosrx A-Sol is used a toner while Neulii is a serum). This comparison might help you guys with your decision making, I hope I covered everything well!

The comparison I am doing is between Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol and Neulii Tea Tree BHA Blemish Control Serum. Both are Kbeauty products that are targeted to solve breakouts and problematic skin. The Cosrx is more popular than the Neulii, many are loving the A-Sol, it is one of Cosrx most raved products. Neulii on the other hand is created by the Kbeauty onlinestore Roseroseshop, I bought Korean makeup and skincare a couple of times from this seller, I was happy upo…

Boomdeahdah Mild & Pure Cleansing Oil | Comparison Review

Hello, Everyone! Not sure if I can call this a comparison review because there is ONLY ONE (or two or three) difference between these two hahah anyway, lets get into it!

Sometime in August, I received an unexpectedly generous package from Boomdeahdah, a Korean Beauty company. Their motto is "We Love The World" which I think is cute. I can't get much info about the company since there is no English translation on their website, but the motto seems to mean that they are focusing on using natural ingredients.
I received a total of 6 products from them, they are too kind! In this post I am just going to talk about 2 of the products I received to review, which are their MILD and PURE cleansing oils. I've talked about their Pure Cleansing Water and Eye & Lip Makeup Remover on my Instagram, both which I really love and wanted to purchase.

Boomdeahdah Mild Cleansing Oil(180ml) Price: 8,900₩

Mirirang Recovery Spray Toner and Mirirang Repair Cream Review | Korean Skincare With Natural Wheatgrass Extract

Sometime around August, I was sent a package by Mirirang Korea for review. The package contains Mirirang Recovery Spray Toner and Mirirang Repair Cream. I've been using the products since then and have already emptied them now, so I can share my final reviews about them with all of you. They also included face masks and a bar soap from Vispera, I think they are from the same brand but with different a name. I will talk about the Vispera products in my future blog post.

Mirirang is specializing in having special and strong secrete of natural wheatgrass extract in their products to make skin younger.

1. Why is Wheatgrass good?

Wheatgrass contains the various vitamins and powerful antioxidant ingredients that protect the moisturizing factor of the skin, especially carbohydrate, zinc, niacin, rievaulx peullamin, copper, protein, vitamin A, B6, C, E, K.

HOLY SNAILS! (Snowbang Essence, Perseids Oil, Shark Sauce) Reviews

Heres to one of the longest overdue and most requested reviews to date (well not really, maybe like only 10 out of  the 1.8k Instagram followers that I have). Yes, I am a horrible person to keep one's curiosity for long. The reviews are here now, I try my best to be detailed as possible. Here you go, have a pleasure reading!

So sometime around 22 weeks ago in June 2016, I received these babies that I used from a gift card giveaway that I won in IG. This Tres Amigos Sampler Set costs USD 24, I used the gift card that was worth USD 25 and only paid for the shipping to Brunei, which was around USD 5. If you are an avid AB(Asian beauty)-er like me on Instagram then I am sure you are familiar or 've stumbled across the Holy Snails account.
The set includes: Shark Sauce (without the actual shark fyi) - 5ml Perseids Oil - 5ml Snowbang Essence - 6ml
For those who have never heard of them, well here is an extract taken from their About us page:
